CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC 

CHURCH 

PART TWO—THE CELEBRATION OF THE

CHRISTIAN MYSTERY

THE SACRAMENTS OF HEALING

298. When did Jesus institute this sacrament of

confession?

The  risen  Lord  instituted  this  sacrament  on  the
evening  of  Easter  when  he  showed  himself  to  his
apostles and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If
you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you
retain  the  sins  of  any,  they  are  retained.”  (John
20:22-23).

299. Do the baptized have need of conversion?

The call of Christ to conversion continues to resound
in  the  lives  of  the  baptized.  Conversion  is  a
continuing  obligation  for  the  whole  Church.  She  is
holy but includes sinners in her midst.

300. What is interior penance?

It is the movement of a “contrite heart” (Psalm 51:19)
drawn by divine grace to respond to the merciful love
of God. This entails sorrow for and abhorrence of sins
committed,  a  firm  purpose  not  to  sin  again  in  the
future and trust in the help of God. It is nourished by
hope in divine mercy.

301. What forms does penance take in the

Christian life?

Penance can be expressed in many and various ways
but  above  all  in  fasting,  prayer,  and  almsgiving.
These  and  many  other  forms  of  penance  can  be
practiced  in  the  daily  life  of  a Christian,  particularly
during the time of Lent and on the penitential day of
Friday.

302. What are the essential elements of the

sacrament of Reconciliation?

The  essential  elements  are  two:  the  acts  of  the
penitent  who  comes  to  repentance  through  the
action  of  the  Holy  Spirit,  and  the  absolution  of  the
priest  who  in  the  name  of Christ  grants  forgiveness
and determines the ways of making satisfaction.

303. What are the acts of the penitent?

They  are:  a  careful  examination  of  conscience;
contrition (or repentance), which is perfect when it is
motivated by love of God and imperfect if it rests on
other motives and which includes the determination
not  to  sin  again;  confession,  which  consists  in  the
telling of one’s sins to the priest; and satisfaction or

the carrying out of certain acts of penance which the
confessor  imposes  upon  the  penitent  to  repair  the
damage caused by sin.

304. Which sins must be confessed?

All  grave  sins  not  yet  confessed,  which  a  careful
examination  of  conscience  brings  to  mind,  must  be
brought  to  the  sacrament  of  Penance.  The
confession of serious sins is the only ordinary way to

                                                                               !5

Optional  Memorial:  St  Columban,  Abbot—Wed,  Nov  23:
C
olumban  was  the  greatest  of  the  Irish  missionaries  who
worked on the European continent. As a young man who
was  greatly  tormented  by  temptations  of  the  flesh,  he
sought  the  advice  of  a  religious  woman  who  had  lived  a
hermit’s life for years. He saw in her answer a call to leave
the world. He went first to a monk on an island in Lough
Erne,  then  to  the  great  monastic  seat  of  learning  at
Bangor.
After  many  years  of  seclusion  and  prayer,  he  traveled  to
Gaul  with  12  companion  missionaries.  They  won  wide
respect  for  the

r i g o u r  o f  t h e i r

discipline,  their

preaching,  and

their  commitment

t o  c h a r i t y  a n d

religious  life  in  a

time  characterized

by  clerical  laxity

and  civil  strife.

C o l u m b a n

established  several

m o n a s t e r i e s  i n

E u r o p e  w h i c h

became centres of religion and culture.

Like  all  saints,  he  met  opposition.  Ultimately  he  had  to
appeal to the pope against complaints of Frankish bishops,
for  vindication  of  his  orthodoxy  and  approval  of  Irish
customs.  He  reproved  the  king  for  his  licentious  life,
insisting that he marry. Since this threatened the power of
the queen mother, Columban was deported to Ireland. His
ship ran aground in a storm, and he continued his work in
Europe, ultimately arriving in Italy, where he found favour
with  the  king  of  the  Lombards.  In  his  last  years  he
established  the  famous  monastery  of  Bobbio,  where  he
died.  His  writings  include  a  treatise  on  penance  and
against Arianism, sermons, poetry, and his monastic rule.
Reflection:  Now  that  public  sexual  license  is  becoming
extreme, we need the Church’s memory of a young man as
concerned about chastity as Columban. And now that the
comfort-captured Western world stands in tragic contrast
to  starving  millions,  we  need  the  challenge  to  austerity
and  discipline  of  a  group  of  Irish  monks. They  were  too
strict, we say; they went too far. How far shall we go?

Optional  Memorial:  St  Andrew  Dung-Lac,  Priest  and
Comanions,  Martyrs
Thurs,  Nov  24.  Andrew  Dung-Lac
was one of 117 people martyred in Vietnam between 1820
and  1862.  Members  of  this  group  were  beatified  on  four
different  occasions  between  1900  and  1951.  All  were
canonized by Pope John Paul II.
Christianity  came  to  Vietnam  through  the  Portuguese.
Jesuits opened the first permanent mission at Da Nang in
1615. They ministered to Japanese Catholics who had been
driven from Japan.

The  king  of  one  of  the  kingdoms  banned  all  foreign
missionaries and tried to make all Vietnamese deny their
faith  by  trampling  on  a  crucifix.  Like  the  priest-holes  in

Ireland  during  English  persecution,  many  hiding  places
were offered in homes of the faithful.
Severe  persecutions  were  again  launched  three  times  in
the  19th  century.  During  the  six  decades  after  1820,
between  100,000  and  300,000  Catholics  were  killed  or
subjected to great hardship.

Persecution  broke  out  again  in  1847  when  the  emperor
suspected foreign missionaries and Vietnamese Christians
of sympathizing with a rebellion led by of one of his sons.
The last of the martyrs were 17 laypersons, one of them a
9-year-old,  executed  in  1862.  That  year  a  treaty  with
France  guaranteed  religious  freedom  to  Catholics,  but  it
did not stop all persecution.

By 1954 there were over a million Catholics—about seven
percent  of  the  population—in  the  north.  Buddhists
represented  about  60  percent.  Persistent  persecution
forced  some  670,000 Catholics  to  abandon  lands,  homes
and possessions and flee to the south. In 1964, there were
still  833,000  Catholics  in  the  north,  but  many  were  in
prison.  In  the  south,  Catholics  were  enjoying  the  first
decade  of  religious  freedom  in  centuries,  their  numbers
swelled by refugees. During the Vietnamese war, Catholics
again suffered in the north, and again moved to the south
in  great  numbers.  Now  the  whole  country  is  under
Communist rule.
Reflection:  It  may  help  a  people  who  associate  Vietnam
only with a 20th-century war to realize that the cross has
long been a part of the lives of the people of that country.
Even as some people ask again the unanswered questions
about  US  involvement  and  disengagement,  the  faith
rooted in Vietnam’s soil proves hardier than the forces that
willed to destroy it.

The Readings:

2 Samuel 5:1-3

Psalm 122:1-5

Colossians 1:12-20

Luke 23:35-43

Week  by  week  the  Liturgy  has  been  preparing

us for the revelation to be made on this, the last

Sunday of the Church year.
Jesus, we have been shown, is truly the Chosen

One,  the  Messiah  of  God,  the  King  of  Jews.

Ironically,  in  today's  Gospel  we  hear  these

names on the lips of those who don't believe in

Him—Israel's  rulers,  the  soldiers,  a  criminal

dying alongside Him.
They  can  only  see  the  scandal  of  a  bloodied

figure nailed to a cross. They scorn Him in words

and  gestures  foretold  in  Israel's  Scriptures

(see

Psalm  22:7-9;  69:21-22; Wisdom  2:18-20)

.  If  He  is  truly  King,

God will rescue Him, they taunt. But He did not

come  to  save  Himself,  but  to  save  them—and

us.
The good thief shows us how we are to accept

the salvation He offers us. He confesses his sins,

acknowledges he deserves to die for them. And

He calls on the name of Jesus, seeks His mercy

and forgiveness.
By his faith he is saved. Jesus "remembers" him

—as  God  has  always  remembered  His  people,

visiting them with His saving deeds, numbering

them among His chosen heirs

(see Psalm 106:4-5).

By  the  blood  of  His  cross,  Jesus  reveals  His

Kingship—not in saving His life, but in offering it

as  a  ransom  for  ours.  He  transfers  us  to  "the

Kingdom of His beloved Son," as today's Epistle

tells us.
His  Kingdom  is  the Church,  the  new Jerusalem

and  House  of  David  that  we  sing  of  in  today's

Psalm.
By  their  covenant  with  David  in  today's  First

Reading, Israel's tribes are made one "bone and

flesh"  with  their  king.  By  the  new  covenant

made  in  His  blood,  Christ  becomes  one  flesh

with  the  people  of  His  Kingdom—the  head  of

His body, the Church

(see Ephesians 5:23-32)

.

We celebrate and renew this covenant in every

Eucharist,  giving  thanks  for  our  redemption,

hoping for the day when we too will be with Him

in Paradise.

“Truly I Tell You,

Today You Will Be With Me In Paradise”

Question
My  son  is  dating  a  Lutheran  (Protestant)  girl  who
finds it hard to understand why we have a crucifix in
every church. I explained that because of Christ's love
for us, he suffered and died on the cross for our sins
and  our  salvation.  She  says  Jesus'  Resurrection  is
what  they  focus  on.  Could  you  please  explain
further?
Answer
Jesus  did  not  redeem  us  on  Easter  Sunday.  He
redeemed  us  on  the  cross  on Good  Friday.  He  also
said that to be his disciple we must deny ourselves,
take  up  our  cross,  and  follow  him  (Matt.16:24-27).
Nowhere in Scripture do we find him replacing such
attention  with  Easter  Sunday! To  behold  the  image
of  Jesus  hanging  on  the  cross  is  to  recognize  the
greatest  event  in  history.  It  is  to  remember  how
incapable  we  are  of  fully  appreciating  what  his
infinite  love  is—and  how  infinitely  fortunate  we  are
to know such love (even though imperfectly) through
the gift of faith.

Question
I read that Christ did not say, "Love the sinner, hate
the sin." Who did?
Answer
It’s  from  St.  Augustine.  His  Letter  211  (c.  424)
contains the phrase Cum dilectione hominum et odio
vitiorum,  which  translates  roughly  to  "With  love  for
mankind and hatred of sins." The phrase has become
more famous as "love the sinner but hate the sin" or
"hate the sin and not the sinner"

(the latter form appearing in

Mohandas Gandhi’s 1929 autobiography).
