CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 
PART ONE—THE PROFESSION OF FAITH 

“I BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST,

THE ONLY SON OF GOD.”

“Jesus Christ was conceived by the power

of the Holy Spirit, and was born of the Virgin Mary”

122. What are the results of the sacrifice of Christ

on the cross?

Jesus freely offered his life as an expiatory sacrifice,
that is, he made reparation for our sins with the full
obedience  of  his  love  unto  death. This  love  “to  the
end”  (John  13:1)  of  the Son  of God  reconciled  all  of
humanity  with  the  Father.  The  paschal  sacrifice  of
Christ, therefore, redeems humanity in a way that is
unique,  perfect,  and  definitive;  and  it  opens  up  for
them communion with God.

123. Why does Jesus call upon his disciples to take

up their cross?

By  calling  his  disciples  to  take  up  their  cross  and
follow  him  Jesus  desires  to  associate  with  his
redeeming  sacrifice  those  who  are  to  be  its  first
beneficiaries.

124. In what condition was the body of Christ while

it lay in the tomb?

Christ  underwent  a  real  death  and  a  true  burial.
However, the power of God preserved his body from
corruption.

“Jesus Christ descended into hell;

on the third day He rose again from
the dead.”

125. What is the “hell” into which Jesus

descended?

This “hell” was different from the hell of the damned.
It was the state of all those, righteous and evil, who
died before Christ. With his soul united to his divine
Person Jesus went down to the Just in hell who were
awaiting their Redeemer so they could enter at last
into the vision of God. When he had conquered by his
death both death and the devil “who has the power
of  death”  (Hebrews  2:14),  he  freed  the  Just  who
looked  forward  to  the  Redeemer  and  opened  for
them the gates of heaven.

126. What place does the Resurrection of Christ

occupy in our faith?

The Resurrection of Jesus is the crowning truth of our
faith in Christ and represents along with his cross an
essential part of the Paschal Mystery.

127. What are the signs that bear witness to the

Resurrection of Jesus?

Along with the essential sign of the empty tomb, the
Resurrection of Jesus is witnessed to by the women
who first encountered Christ and proclaimed him to
the apostles. Jesus then “appeared to Cephas (Peter)
and then to the Twelve. Following that he appeared
to  more  than  five  hundred  of  the  brethren  at  one
time” (1 Corinthians 15:5-6) and to others as well. The
apostles  could  not  have  invented  the  story  of  the
resurrection since it seemed impossible to them. As a
matter  of  fact,  Jesus  himself  upbraided  them  for
their unbelief.

128. Why is the Resurrection at the same time a

transcendent occurrence?

While  being  an  historical  event,  verifiable  and
attested by signs and testimonies, the Resurrection,
insofar as it is the entrance of Christ's humanity into
the glory of God, transcends and surpasses history as
a mystery of faith. For this reason the risen Christ did
not manifest himself to the world but to his disciples,
making them his witnesses to the people.

129. What is the condition of the risen body of

Jesus?

The Resurrection of Christ was not a return to earthly
life.  His  risen  body  is  that  which  was  crucified  and
bears  the  marks  of  his  passion.  However  it  also
participates in the divine life, with the characteristics
of  a  glorified  body.  Because  of  this  the  risen  Jesus
was  utterly  free  to  appear  to  his  disciples  how  and
where he wished and under various aspects.

130. How is the Resurrection the work of the Most

Holy Trinity?

The Resurrection of Christ is a transcendent work of
God.  The  three  Persons  act  together  according  to
what  is  proper  to  them:  the  Father  manifests  his
power; the Son “takes again” the life which he freely
offered (John 10:17), reuniting his soul and his body
which the Spirit brings to life and glorifies.

Men's Retreat – May 26-29, 2015

Queen of Apostles Centre, 1617 Blythe Rd., Mississauga.

This amazing retreat is a powerful and enduring personal

conversion and renewal experience. Two separate

retreats are offered. Men's retreat is led by men and

women's retreat is led by women. Priests offer adoration,
reconciliation and Masses. Retreatants agree it's a retreat

like no other and can be life-changing.

Quotes of St Pope John XXIII

He once wrote: "There are three ways for Italians to

face ruin: women, gambling and farming. My family

chose the most boring one.”

“Men are like wine - some turn to vinegar, but the

best improve with age.”

Referring to his great age of 77 when elected pope:

“Here I am at the end of the road and at the top of

the heap!”

To a very thin, ascetical visitor, “We will both have
to say a prayer to God, beseeching him to remove

half my excess fat to give it to you!”

Pope John’s view of God the Father, “If the Eternal

Father says to me, “Roncalli, you need to be harsher

and more strict at times,’ I will say, ‘Eternal Father,

it is you who sent your Son to give me a bad

example!”

Optional  Memorial—Our  Lady  of  Fatima—

Friday, May 13: Between May 13 and October 13,

1917,  three  Portuguese  children  received

apparitions  of  Our  Lady  at  Cova  da  Iria,  near

Fatima,  a  city  110  miles  north  of  Lisbon.  (See

February  20  entry  for  Blesseds  Jacinta  and

Francisco  Marto).  Mary  asked  the  children  to

pray the rosary for world peace, for the end of

World War I, for sinners and for the conversion

of Russia. The third visionary, Lucia dos Santos,

became a Carmelite nun and died in 2005 at the

age of 97.

Mary  gave  the  children  three  secrets.  Since

Francisco died in 1919 and Jacinta the following

year,  Lucia  revealed  the  first  secret  in  1927,

concerning devotion to the Immaculate Heart of

Mary. The second secret was a vision of hell.

Pope  John  Paul  II  directed  the  Holy  See's

Secretary  of  State  to  reveal  the  third  secret  in

2000;  it  spoke  of  a  "bishop  in  white"  who  was

shot by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and

arrows into him. Many people linked this to the

assassination attempt against Saint John Paul II

in St. Peter's Square on May 13, 1981.

The feast of Our Lady of Fatima was approved

by the local bishop in 1930; it was added to the

Church's worldwide calendar in 2002.

Comment:  The  message  of  Fatima  is  simple:

Pray.  Unfortunately,  some  people—not  Sister

Lucia—have distorted these revelations, making

them  into  an  apocalyptic  event  for  which  they

are  now  the  only  reliable  interpreters.  They

have, for example, claimed that Mary's request

that  the  world  be  consecrated  to  her  has  been

ignored. Sister Lucia agreed that Pope John Paul

II's  public  consecration  in St.  Peter's Square  on

March  25,  1984,  fulfilled  Mary's  request.  The

Congregation  for  the  Doctrine  of  the  Faith

prepared a June 26, 2000 document explaining

the “third secret” (available at www.vatican.va).

Mary  is  perfectly  honoured  when  people

generously imitate her response “Let it be done

to  me  as  you  say”  (Luke  1:38).  Mary  can  never

be  seen  as  a  rival  to  Jesus  or  to  the  Church's

teaching  authority,  as  exercised  by  the  college

of bishops united with the bishop of Rome.

Quote:  “Throughout  history  there  have  been

supernatural  apparitions  and  signs  which  go  to

the  heart  of  human  events  and  which,  to  the

surprise  of  believers  and  non-believers  alike,

play their part in the unfolding of history. These

manifestations can never contradict the content

of faith and must, therefore, have their focus in

the  core  of  Christ's  proclamation:  the  Father's

love which leads men and women to conversion

and  bestows  the  grace  required  to  abandon

oneself to him with filial devotion. This too is the

message of Fatima which, with its urgent call to

conversion and penance, draws us to the heart

of  the  Gospel”  (The  Message  of  Fatima,

Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, June

26, 2000).

The Ascension of Jesus Christ, A Day of Great

Joy and Celebration

As they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a

cloud took him from their sight. (Acts 1:9)

At the Last Supper, when Jesus told the apostles

that he was leaving, they were deeply disturbed

(John  14:1). Yet  after  the Ascension,  they  were

filled with joy (Luke 24:52). Why the change?

The apostles’ sadness gave way to joy because

of two promises Jesus had made to them: that

he  would  be  with  them  always  and  that  after

returning  to  his  Father’s  house,  he  would

prepare a place for them (Matthew 28:20; John

14:2-3).  It’s  this  second  promise  that  we

celebrate today. Jesus has ascended to heaven,

and through his Spirit, he is preparing us for the

day when he comes again in glory.

When  Jesus  ascended,  he  made  all  the  angels

subject  to  him  (1  Peter  3:22;  Ephesians  1:21).

This  means  not  only  those  angels  who  had

already  submitted  to  Jesus;  it  also  means  the

fallen angels who serve the devil. Enthroned in

heaven,  Jesus  has  the  power  to  restrain  their

malice and protect us from them. That’s why he

taught  us  to  pray,  “Deliver  us  from  the  evil

one” (Matthew 6:13).

When  Jesus  ascended  to  heaven,  his

intercessory work for the Church continued. He

is  our  advocate  before  the  Father  (1  John  2:1).

This  is  no  small  task.  It  means  that  Jesus  is

always  going  to  his  Father  on  our  behalf.  It

means that we will always have access to God’s

presence—whether we are doing well or not so

well.

The  ascended  Christ  has  also  empowered  his

Church  to  fulfill  its  mission.  Paul  said  that God

has made Jesus “head over all things,” including

“the  church”  (Ephesians  1:22). This  means  that

we can trust Jesus and have great confidence in

him, no matter how bleak things look. Jesus is in

heaven.  He  is  interceding  for  us.  He  has

overcome even the demons. He is supreme over

all  creation. And  best  of  all,  he  will  never,  ever

abandon us. Isn’t that comforting?

“Jesus, I put my hope and my trust in you.”

“…And They Were Continually In The Temple Blessing God”

Luke’s Gospel

YOUTH MINISTRY

Question

My annulment was denied, but may I still receive the
Eucharist  if  my  conscience  tells  me  the  marriage
was invalid?

Full Question

I was married in the Church, later divorced, and then
I remarried. I just received word that my annulment
request  was  denied.  However,  my  deacon  told  me
that even though my annulment petition was denied
by  the  diocesan  tribunal,  if  I  believe  in  good
conscience  that  my  first  marriage  was  not  valid,  I
can go to my priest and he can give me permission
to  return  to  the  Eucharist.  Is  this  true?  Please
provide documentation.

Answer

A  Catholic  cannot  use  his  or  her  conscience  (the
internal forum) to overturn a ruling of the diocesan
tribunal  (external  forum). Canon  1671  clearly  states
that  "marriage  cases  of  the  baptized  belong  to  the
ecclesiastical judge by proper right." This is because
"marriage  is  not  simply  a  private  decision,"  but  a
public  one,  involving  the Church,  and  the  spouses,
"both individually and as a couple." According to the
Congregation  for  the  Doctrine  of  the  Faith’s  1994
Letter  to  the  Bishops Concerning  the  Reception  of
Holy  Communion  by  the  Divorced  and  Remarried,
not  to  recognize  the  Church’s  mediation  in  the
judgment  of  the  nullity  of  a  previous  marriage,
"would  mean  in  fact  to  deny  that  marriage  is  a
reality  of  the  Church,  that  is  to  say,  a
sacrament" (no. 8). The document goes on to say:

The  mistaken  conviction  of  a  divorced  and
remarried  person  that  he  may  receive  Holy
Communion  normally  presupposes  that
personal  conscience  is  considered  in  the  final
analysis  to  be  able,  on  the  basis  of  one’s  own
convictions,  to  come  to  a  decision  about  the
existence  or  absence  of  a  previous  marriage
and the value of the new union. However, such
a  position  is  inadmissible.  (7)  In  …the  case  of
those  who  are  subjectively  certain  in
conscience  that  their  previous  marriage,
irreparably  broken,  had  never  been  valid.  It
must be discerned with certainty by means of
the  external  forum  established  by  the Church
whether  there  is  objectively  such  a  nullity  of
marriage. (9)

We fast, & abstain from meat on Ash Wed & Good Fri.

The fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

The required fast on Ash Wed and Good Fri involves

eating only one full meal on those days. One or two

smaller meals may be taken on those days, but may not

total one full meal. The required fast does not allow

eating anything between meals.

Abstinence on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday

Abstinence on these days from meat does not intend the

omission of eggs or dairy products.
