CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC 

CHURCH 

PART TWO—THE CELEBRATION OF THE

CHRISTIAN MYSTERY

THE SACRAMENTS OF HEALING

295. Why did Christ institute the sacraments of

Penance and the Anointing of the Sick?

Christ, the physician of our soul and body, instituted
these sacraments because the new life that he gives
us  in  the  sacraments  of  Christian  initiation  can  be
weakened  and  even  lost  because  of  sin. Therefore,
Christ  willed  that  his  Church  should  continue  his
work of healing and salvation by means of these two
sacraments.

THE SACRAMENT OF PENANCE AND

RECONCILIATION

296. What is the name of this sacrament?

It is called the sacrament of Penance, the sacrament
of Reconciliation, the sacrament of Forgiveness, the
sacrament  of  Confession,  and  the  sacrament  of
Conversion.

297. Why is there a sacrament of Reconciliation

after Baptism?

Since the new life of grace received in Baptism does
not  abolish  the  weakness  of  human  nature  nor  the
inclination  to  sin  (that  is,  concupiscence),  Christ
instituted  this  sacrament  for  the  conversion  of  the
baptized who have been separated from him by sin.

WHO ARE WE

Do We Know Each Other

How would we answer the above questions?

Would we answer, “I am a Catholic Christian”?

Would we say, “I know so and so at the 5:15PM

or 12:15PM Mass”?

Could we say, “So and so at the 9AM Mass has

cancer and is undergoing radiation and chemo

therapy”? Could we say, “Jane and John are

having difficulties in their marriage and I am

praying for them”? Do we know that 5 year old

Jean is a hyper-active child and her parents are

struggling to care for her”?

Seeing someone at Sunday Mass is one thing,

knowing that person is an altogether different

matter. Do we care to know them?

Understanding each others’ lives, struggles,

problems and joys is our task as a community

of believers in the Risen Lord.

How can we here at StJXXIII come to know

each other better, be a community that cares

for each other?

Here is the suggestion of some parishioners:

Have a coffee Sunday once a month after all

the Masses. Invite people from each Mass to

prepare coffee, tea, juice, eats, etc (parish

expense). Host this event in the foyer, the

adjacent Our Lady of Good Counsel room, and

the office meeting spaces. Each of the 4

Sunday Masses would have a volunteer as the

co-ordinator of the volunteers from each Mass.

Would we not begin to know each other better

in this way? If several people at my Church

know me, are friendly with me perhaps I can

look forward to being at Church, find support

for myself when I am in need.

What do you think?

Would you like to be

a co-ordinator for a Mass?

How about being the first to host a coffee

Sunday at your mass?

Memorial:  St  Margaret  of  Scotland—Wed,  Nov  16:
Margaret of Scotland was a truly liberated woman in
the  sense  that  she  was  free  to  be  herself.  For  her,
that meant freedom to love God and serve others.

Not Scottish by birth, Margaret was the daughter of
Princess  Agatha  of  Hungary  and  the  Anglo-Saxon
Prince  Edward  Atheling.  She  spent  much  of  her
youth  in  the  court  of  her  great-uncle,  the  English
king,  Edward  the  Confessor.  Her  family  fled  from
William the Conqueror and was shipwrecked off the
coast  of  Scotland.  King  Malcolm  befriended  them
and  was  captivated  by  the  beautiful,  gracious
Margaret.  They  were  married  at  the  castle  of
Dunfermline in 1070.

Malcolm  was  good-hearted,  but  rough  and
uncultured, as was his country. Because of Malcolm’s
love for Margaret, she was able to soften his temper,
polish his manners, and help him become a virtuous
king.  He  left  all  domestic  affairs  to  her,  and  often
consulted her in state matters.
Margaret  tried  to  improve  her  adopted  country  by
promoting  the  arts  and  education.  For  religious
reform she encouraged synods and was present for
the  discussions  which  tried  to  correct  religious
abuses common among priests and laypeople, such
as simony, usury, and incestuous marriages. With her
husband, she founded several churches.

Margaret  was  not  only  a  queen,  but  a  mother. She
and  Malcolm  had  six  sons  and  two  daughters.
Margaret  personally  supervised  their  religious
instruction and other studies.

Although she was very much caught up in the affairs
of  the  household  and  country,  she  remained
detached  from  the  world.  Her  private  life  was
austere.  She  had  certain  times  for  prayer  and
reading Scripture. She ate sparingly and slept little in
order to have time for devotions. She and Malcolm
kept  two  Lents,  one  before  Easter  and  one  before
Christmas.  During  these  times  she  always  rose  at
midnight  for  Mass.  On  the  way  home  she  would
wash  the  feet  of  six  poor  persons  and  give  them

alms.  She  was  always  surrounded  by  beggars  in
public  and  never  refused  them.  It  is  recorded  that
she never sat down to eat without first feeding nine
orphans and 24 adults.

In  1093,  King William  Rufus  made  a  surprise  attack
on Alnwick castle. King Malcolm and his oldest son,
Edward,  were  killed.  Margaret,  already  on  her
deathbed, died four days after her husband.

Reflection
There are two ways to be charitable: the “clean way”
and  the  “messy  way.”  The  “clean  way”  is  to  give
money  or  clothing  to  organizations  that  serve  the
poor. The “messy way” is dirtying your own hands in
personal service to the poor. Margaret’s outstanding
virtue  was  her  love  of  the  poor.  Although  very
generous  with  material  gifts,  Margaret  also  visited
the  sick  and  nursed  them  with  her  own  hands. She
and  her  husband  served  orphans  and  the  poor  on
their knees during Advent and Lent. Like Christ, she
was charitable the “messy way.”

                                                                               !6

The Readings:

Malachi 3:19-20

Psalm 98:5-9

2 Thessalonians 3:7-12

Luke 21:5-19
It is the age between our Lord's first coming and

His last. We live in the new world begun by His

life,  death,  Resurrection  and Ascension,  by  the

sending  of  His  Spirit  upon  the  Church.  But  we

await the day when He will come again in glory.
"Lo,  the  day  is  coming,"  Malachi  warns  in

today's First Reading. The prophets taught Israel

to look for the Day of the Lord, when He would

gather  the  nations  for  judgment

(see  Zephaniah

3:8; Isaiah 3:9; 2 Peter 3:7).

Jesus anticipates this day in today's Gospel. He

cautions  us  not  to  be  deceived  by  those

claiming "the time has come." Such deception is

the  background  also  for  today's  Epistle

(see  2

Thessalonians 2:1-3).

The  signs  Jesus  gives  His  Apostles  seem  to

already  have  come  to  pass  in  the  New

Testament. In Acts, the Epistles and Revelation,

we  read  of  famines  and  earthquakes,  the

Temple's desolation. We read of persecutions—

believers  imprisoned  and  put  to  death,

testifying  to  their  faith  with  wisdom  in  the

Spirit.
These "signs" then, show us the pattern for the

Church's  life—both  in  the  New Testament  and

today.
We too live in a world of nations and kingdoms

at war. And we should take the Apostles as our

"models," as today's Epistle counsels. Like them

we  must  persevere  in  the  face  of  unbelieving

relatives and friends, and forces and authorities

hostile to God.
As  we  do  in  today's  Psalm,  we  should  sing  His

praises,  joyfully  proclaim  His  coming  as  Lord

and  King. The  Day  of  the  Lord  is  always  a  day

that  has  already  come  and  a  day  still  yet  to

come. It is the "today" of our Liturgy.

The  Apostles  prayed  maranatha—"O  Lord

come!"

(see  1  Corinthians  16:22;  Revelation  22:20)

.  In  the

Eucharist He answers, coming again as the Lord

of hosts and the Sun of Justice with its healing

rays. It is a mighty sign and a pledge of that Day

to come.

Endurance You Will Gain Your Souls”

Question
I  have  a  prayer  card  that  offers  a  prayer  for  the
conditional baptism for the unborn. Is this possible?
Answer
No.  Conditional  baptism  is  conferred  only  when
there  are  doubts  about  the  validity  of  a  person’s
baptism  or  whether  baptism  was  conferred  validly

(CIC 869)

. As for the baptism of desire, this would apply

only  to  "those  who  die  for  the  faith,  those  who  are
catechumens, and all those who, without knowing of
the Church but acting under the inspiration of grace,
seek  God  sincerely  and  strive  to  fulfill  his  will"

(CCC

1281)

. As for children who have died without baptism,

the  Church  can  only  entrust  them  to  the  mercy  of
God

(CCC 1261)

. We must always be careful to pray with

the  mind  of  the  Church;  to  do  otherwise  is  to  go
beyond the limits of revealed truth.

But  you  could  pray  for  their  salvation  and  for  their
lives to be spared if they are in danger of abortion. A
prayer  you  might  consider  is  Archbishop  Fulton
Sheen’s prayer for the unborn:

Jesus,  Mary  and  Joseph,  I  love  you  very
much.  I  beg  you  to  spare  the  life  of  the
unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted
who is in danger of abortion. Amen.

Question
I understand that novenas are an acceptable form of
prayer. When an intention is included, the individual
praying accepts God's will as a response. However, I
am becoming familiar with prayers which guarantee
the  request  if  the  formula  is  followed.  Where  does
the Church stand on this type of prayer?
Answer
What you said in the beginning is what needs to be
followed. There are no short cuts. God is not that big
vending  machine  in  the  sky  that  will  release  the
goods if we know just how to appease him. Passing a
prayer formula by mail or making a certain number of
copies and dispensing them to others to get what we
want is an insult to God and the Church
. The Lord told
us to ask for what we need—not because he doesn’t
already  know,  but  that  we  come  to  him  in  love,
humbly acknowledging our complete dependence on
him—and willingly accepting whatever and however

he  chooses  to  respond.  The  prayer  of  petition  is  a
matter of loving trust and absolutely nothing else.

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.

"All Catholics who have completed their 14

th

year are

bound by the law of abstinence; all adults are bound by

the law of fast up to the beginning of their 60

Fridays of the Year

It is a requirement of our Faith that we abstain from meat
