CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

PART TWO—THE CELEBRATION OF THE CHRISTIAN

MYSTERY

THE SEVEN SACRAMENTS OF THE CHURCH

THE SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM

259. What is required of one who is to be

baptized?

Everyone  who  is  to  be  baptized  is  required  to

make  a  profession  of  faith.  This  is  done

personally  in  the  case  of  an  adult  or  by  the

parents and by the Church in the case of infants.

Also  the  godfather  or  the  godmother  and  the

whole  ecclesial  community  share  the

responsibility  for  baptismal  preparation

(catechumenate) as well as for the development

and safeguarding of the faith and grace given at

baptism.

260. Who can baptize?

The  ordinary  ministers  of  Baptism  are  the

bishop  and  the  priest.  In  the  Latin  Church  the

deacon also can baptize. In case of necessity any

person  can  baptize  provided  he  has  the

intention of doing what the Church does. This is

done  by  pouring  water  on  the  head  of  the

candidate  while  saying  the  Trinitarian  formula

for  Baptism:  “I  baptize  you  in  the  name  of  the

Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”.

261. Is Baptism necessary for salvation?

Baptism  is  necessary  for  salvation  for  all  those

to  whom  the Gospel  has  been  proclaimed  and

who  have  had  the  possibility  of  asking  for  this

sacrament.

262. Is it possible to be saved without

Baptism?

Since Christ  died  for  the  salvation  of  all,  those

can  be  saved  without  Baptism  who  die  for  the

faith  (Baptism  of  blood).  Catechumens  and  all

those who, even without knowing Christ and the

Church,  still  (under  the  impulse  of  grace)

sincerely seek God and strive to do his will can

also  be  saved  without  Baptism  (Baptism  of

desire).  The  Church  in  her  liturgy  entrusts

children who die without Baptism to the mercy

of God.

263. What are the effects of Baptism?

Baptism takes away original sin, all personal sins

and  all  punishment  due  to  sin.  It  makes  the

baptized person a participant in the divine life of

the Trinity through sanctifying grace, the grace

of  justification  which  incorporates  one  into

Christ and into his Church. It gives one a share in

the priesthood of Christ and provides the basis

for  communion  with  all  Christians.  It  bestows

the theological virtues and the gifts of the Holy

Spirit.  A  baptized  person  belongs  forever  to

Christ.  He  is  marked  with  the  indelible  seal  of

Christ (character).

264. What is the meaning of the Christian

name received at Baptism?

The name is important because God knows each

of  us  by  name,  that  is,  in  our  uniqueness  as

persons.  In  Baptism  a  Christian  receives  his  or

her  own  name  in  the  Church.  It  should

preferably  be  the  name  of  a  saint  who  might

offer  the  baptized  a  model  of  sanctity  and  an

assurance of his or her intercession before God.

Little Johnny asks the teacher, “Mrs Roberts, can I be

punished for something I haven’t done?”

Mrs Roberts is shocked, “Of course not, Johnny, that

would be very unfair!”

Little Johnny is relieved, “OK Mrs Roberts, sorry, I haven’t

done my homework.”

Little Johnny comes home and tells his daddy, “Dad,

tomorrow there’s a special ‘Adults’ evening’ at school.

Daddy is surprised, “Really? Special?”

“Yes,” nods Johnny, “it will be just you, the teacher, the

headmaster and two police officers.”

Optional  Memorial—Blessed  Marie-Rose

Durocher, Virgin: Thur, Oct 6: Canada was one

diocese  from  coast  to  coast  during  the  first

eight  years  of  Marie-Rose  Durocher’s  life.  Its

half-million  Catholics  had  received  civil  and

religious liberty from the English only 44 years

before. When Marie-Rose was 29, Bishop Ignace

Bourget became bishop of Montreal. He would

be a decisive influence in her life.

He faced a shortage of priests and sisters and a

rural population that had been largely deprived

of education. Like his counterparts in the United

States, Bishop Bourget scoured Europe for help

and  himself  founded  four  communities,  one  of

which  was  the  Sisters  of  the  Holy  Names  of

Jesus and Mary. Its first sister and reluctant co-

foundress was Marie-Rose.

She was born in a little village near Montreal in

1811,  the  10th  of  11  children.  She  had  a  good

education, was something of a tomboy, rode a

horse  named  Caesar  and  could  have  married

well.  At  16,  she  felt  the  desire  to  become  a

religious  but  was  forced  to  abandon  the  idea

because  of  her  weak  constitution. At  18,  when

her mother died, her priest brother invited her

and her father to come to his parish in Beloeil,

not far from Montreal.

For  13  years,  she  served  as  housekeeper,

hostess,  and  parish  worker.  She  became  well

known  for  her  graciousness,  courtesy,

leadership, and tact; she was, in fact, called “the

saint  of  Beloeil.”  Perhaps  she  was  too  tactful

during two years when her brother treated her

coldly.

As a young woman, she had hoped there would

someday be a community of teaching sisters in

every  parish,  never  thinking  she  would  found

one. But her spiritual director, Fr. Pierre Telmon,

O.M.I.,  after  thoroughly  (and  severely)  leading

her  in  the  spiritual  life,  urged  her  to  found  a

community  herself.  Bishop  Bourget  concurred,

but  Marie-Rose  shrank  from  the  prospect. She

was  in  poor  health  and  her  father  and  her

brother needed her.

She  finally  agreed  and,  with  two  friends,

Melodie Dufresne and Henriette Cere, entered a

little  home  in  Longueuil,  across  the  Saint

Lawrence River from Montreal. With them were

13  young  girls  already  assembled  for  boarding

school.  Longueuil  became  her  Bethlehem,

Nazareth, and

Gethsemani.

She  was  32

and  would

live  only  six

more  years

—years  filled

w i t h

p o v e r t y ,

t r i a l s ,

sickness,  and

slander.  The

qualities  she  had  nurtured  in  her  “hidden”  life

came  forward—a  strong  will,  intelligence  and

common sense, great inner courage, and, yet, a

great deference to directors. Thus was born an

international  congregation  of  women  religious

dedicated to education in the faith.

She  was  severe  with  herself  and  by  today’s

standards quite strict with her sisters. Beneath

it all, of course, was an unshakable love of her

crucified Savior.

On  her  deathbed,  the  prayers  most  frequently

on  her  lips  were  “Jesus,  Mary,  Joseph!  Sweet

Jesus, I love you. Jesus, be to me Jesus!” Before

she died, she smiled and said to the sister with

her, “Your prayers are keeping me here—let me

go.”

She was beatified in 1982.

Reflection:  We  have  seen  a  great  burst  of

charity,  a  genuine  interest  in  the  poor.

Countless  Christians  have  experienced  a  deep

form of prayer. But penance? We squirm when

we  read  of  terrible  physical  penance  done  by

people  like  Marie-Rose.  That  is  not  for  most

people, of course. But the pull of a materialistic

culture oriented to pleasure and entertainment

is  impossible  to  resist  without  some  form  of

deliberate  and  Christ-conscious  abstinence.

That is part of the way to answer Jesus’ call to

repent and turn completely to God.

The Readings:

Habakkuk 1:2-3;2:2-4

Psalm 95:1-2,6-9

2 Timothy 1:6-8,13-14

Luke 17:5-10

Because of his faith, the just man shall live. We

hear  in  today's  First  Reading  the  original

prophetic  line  made  so  central  by St.  Paul  (see

Romans 1:17; Galatians 3:11; Hebrews 10:38).

We are to live by faith in Christ who loved us and

gave himself on the Cross for us (see Galatians

2:20).

The world, though, can seem to us as seventh-

century  Judah  seemed  to  Habakkuk—in  the

control of God's enemies. The strife and discord

we face in our own lives can sometimes cause us

to  wonder,  as  the  prophet  does,  why  God

doesn't seem to hear or intervene when we cry

for help.

We can't let our hearts be hardened by the trials

we undergo. As today's Psalm reminds us: Israel

forgot His mighty works, lost faith in the sound

words  of  His  promise. They  tested  God  in  the

desert, demanding a sign.

But God didn't redeem Israel from Egypt only to

let them die in the desert. And He didn't ransom

us from futility only to abandon us in our trials.

He  is  our  God  and  we  are  the  people  He

shepherds  always—though  at  times  His  mercy

and justice seem long delayed.

If  we  call  on  the  Lord,  as  the  Apostles  do  in

today's  Gospel,  He  will  increase  our  faith,  will

stir  to  a  flame  the  Holy  Spirit  who  has  dwelt

within us since Baptism.

As Paul tells us in today's Epistle, the Lord will

always give us the love and self-control we need

to  bear  our  share  of  hardship  for  the Gospel—

with a strength that can come from God alone.

Our  task  is  to  continue  doing  what  He  has

commanded—to  love  and  to  build  up  His

kingdom—trusting  that  His  vision  still  presses

on to its fulfillment.

For His vision still has its time. One day, though

we  are  but  "unprofitable  servants,"  we  will  be

invited to eat and drink at our Master's table. It

is that day we anticipate with each celebration

of the Eucharist.

“If You Had Faith The Size Of A Mustard Seed, You

Could Say To This Mulberry Tree, ‘Be Uprooted And

Planted In The Sea,’ And It Would Obey You.”

Full Question
My  friend  has  consulted  a  locutionist  to  help  her  family
through  problems.  The  locutionist  knows  a  priest  who
performs exorcisms. What is locution, and does the Church
designate certain priests as exorcists?
Answer
A  locution  is  a  form  of  private  revelation,  similar  to  an
apparition, but rather than being seen a locution is heard
or  received  internally.  As  with  all  claims  of  private
revelation  it  is  important  to  be  certain  that  a  locution  is
authentic  before  any  recognition  or  significance  is
determined.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains,

Throughout  the  ages,  there  have  been  so-called
"private"  revelations,  some  of  which  have  been
recognized  by  the  authority  of  the Church. They  do
not belong, however, to the deposit of faith. It is not
their  role  to  improve  or  complete  Christ’s  definitive
Revelation,  but  to  help  live  more  fully  by  it  in  a
certain period of history. Guided by the magisterium
of  the  Church,  the  sensus  fidelium  knows  how  to
discern  and  welcome  in  these  revelations  whatever
constitutes an authentic call of Christ or his saints to
the Church.

Christian  faith  cannot  accept  "revelations"  that
claim  to  surpass  or  correct  the  Revelation  of  which
Christ is the fulfillment, as is the case in certain non-
Christian  religions  and  also  in  certain  recent  sects
which base themselves on such "revelations"

(CCC 67)

.

Concerning exorcism, the Catechism states:

When the Church asks publicly and authoritatively in
the  name  of Jesus Christ  that  a  person  or  object  be
protected  against  the  power  of  the  Evil  One  and
withdrawn  from  his  dominion,  it  is  called  exorcism.
Jesus performed exorcisms and from him the Church
has received the power and office of exorcizing. In a
simple form, exorcism is performed at the celebration
of  baptism.  The  solemn  exorcism,  called  "a  major
exorcism,"  can  be  performed  only  by  a  priest  and
with  the  permission  of  the  bishop. The  priest  must
proceed  with  prudence,  strictly  observing  the  rules
established by the Church. Exorcism is directed at the
expulsion  of  demons  or  to  the  liberation  from
demonic  possession  through  the  spiritual  authority
which  Jesus  entrusted  to  his  Church.  Illness,
especially  psychological  illness,  is  a  very  different
matter;  treating  this  is  the  concern  of  medical
science. Therefore, before an exorcism is performed,
it is important to ascertain that one is dealing with
the presence of the Evil One, and not an illness.

(CCC

1673)

The Code of Canon Law is clear that only qualified priests
with express permission may perform exorcisms: "No one
can  perform  exorcisms  legitimately  upon  the  possessed
unless  he  has  obtained  special  and  express  permission
from  the  local  ordinary. The  local  ordinary  is  to  give  this
permission only to a presbyter who has piety, knowledge,
prudence, and integrity of life"

(CIC 1171

§1-2).

The  New Commentary  on  the Code  of Canon  Law  points
out  that  the  1998  Rite  of  Exorcism  reordered

this  canon.

Among  the  changes,  "An  exorcist  is  to  be  a  priest
(sacerdos),  not  a  presbyter  (presbyterus)  as  in  the  canon,
which  means  bishops  as  well  as  presbyters  may  be
appointed exorcist" (1405).

Youth Ministry Meeting Times
Youth Ministry Meeting Times

I would like to ensure the meeting times for our youth

ministry is suitable to each family’s schedule. Emails have
been sent out to parents of Kids of the Cross to see which

time is best on Fridays, either 5-7pm, 6-8pm or 7-9pm.

Please communicate with me,

carla.marcoccia@hotmail.com, so I can adjust the

schedule to best fit everyone.

The schedule time also applies to God Squad, again,

please contact me with the time that works best for you

and I will also adjust our meeting time to suite your

schedule.

Thank you for your cooperation.
