CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

PART TWO—THE CELEBRATION OF THE

CHRISTIAN MYSTERY

THE SACRAMENT OF THE EUCHARIST

277. How is the celebration of the Holy Eucharist

carried out?

The  Eucharist  unfolds  in  two  great  parts  which
together form one, single act of worship. The Liturgy
of the Word involves proclaiming and listening to the
Word  of God. The  Liturgy  of  the  Eucharist  includes
the  presentation  of  the  bread  and  wine,  the  prayer
the  containing  the  words  of  consecration,  and
communion.

278. Who is the minister for the celebration of the

Eucharist?

The  celebrant  of  the  Eucharist  is  a  validly  ordained
priest

(bishop or priest)

who acts in the Person of Christ the

Head and in the name of the Church.

279. What are the essential and necessary elements

for celebrating the Eucharist?

The  essential  elements  are  wheat  bread  and  grape
wine.

280. In what way is the Eucharist a memorial of the

sacrifice of Christ?

The  Eucharist  is  a  memorial  in  the  sense  that  it
makes  present  and  actual  the  sacrifice  which Christ
offered to the Father on the cross, once and for all on
behalf  of  mankind.  The  sacrificial  character  of  the
Holy  Eucharist  is  manifested  in  the  very  words  of
institution, “This is my Body which is given for you”
and “This cup is the New Covenant in my Blood that
will be shed for you” (Luke 22:19-20). The sacrifice of
the  cross  and  the  sacrifice  of  the  Eucharist  are  one
and the same sacrifice. The priest and the victim are
the same; only the manner of offering is different: in
a  bloody  manner  on  the  cross,  in  an  unbloody
manner in the Eucharist.

281. In what way does the Church participate in the

eucharistic sacrifice?

In the Eucharist the sacrifice of Christ becomes also
the sacrifice of the members of his Body. The lives of
the  faithful,  their  praise,  their  suffering,  their
prayers, their work, are united to those of Christ. In
as  much  as  it  is  a  sacrifice,  the  Eucharist  is  likewise
offered  for  all  the  faithful,  living  and  dead,  in
reparation  for  the  sins  of  all  and  to  obtain  spiritual
and  temporal  benefits  from  God.  The  Church  in
heaven is also united to the offering of Christ.

Feast—Sts  Simon  &  Jude,  Apostles,  Martyrs:

Fri, Oct 28:
Saints Simon and Jude’s Story

Jude  is  so  named  by  Luke  and  Acts.  Matthew

and  Mark  call  him  Thaddeus.  He  is  not

mentioned elsewhere in the Gospels, except, of

course,  where  all  the  apostles  are  mentioned.

Scholars  hold  that  he  is  not  the  author  of  the

Letter  of  Jude.  Actually,  Jude  had  the  same

name as Judas Iscariot. Evidently because of the

disgrace  of  that  name,  it  was  shortened  to

“Jude” in English.
Simon  is  mentioned  on  all  four  lists  of  the

apostles.  On  two  of  them  he  is  called  “the

Zealot.”  The  Zealots  were  a  Jewish  sect  that

represented an extreme of Jewish nationalism.

For  them,  the  messianic  promise  of  the  Old

Testament  meant  that  the  Jews  were  to  be  a

free  and  independent  nation.  God  alone  was

their  king,  and  any  payment  of  taxes  to  the

Romans—the very domination of the Romans—

was a blasphemy against God. No doubt some

of  the  Zealots  were  the  spiritual  heirs  of  the

Maccabees,  carrying  on  their  ideals  of  religion

and  independence.  But  many  were  the

counterparts  of  modern  terrorists. They  raided

and  killed,  attacking  both  foreigners  and

“collaborating”  Jews.  They  were  chiefly

responsible  for  the  rebellion  against  Rome

which ended in the destruction of Jerusalem in

A.D. 70.
Reflection

As  in  the  case  of  all  the  apostles  except  for

Peter, James and John, we are faced with men

who  are  really  unknown,  and  we  are  struck  by

the fact that their holiness is simply taken to be

a gift of Christ. He chose some unlikely people:

a  former  Zealot,  a  former  (crooked)  tax

collector, an impetuous fisherman, two “sons of

thunder,” and a man named Judas Iscariot.
It  is  a  reminder  that  we  cannot  receive  too

often.  Holiness  does  not  depend  on  human

merit,  culture,  personality,  effort,  or

achievement.  It  is  entirely  God’s  creation  and

gift.  God  needs  no  Zealots  to  bring  about  the

kingdom by force. Jude, like all the saints, is the

saint of the impossible: Only God can create his

divine life in human beings. And God wills to do

so, for all of us.

The Readings:

Sirach 35:12-14, 16-18

Psalm 34:2-3,17-19, 23

2 Timothy 4:6-8,16-18

Luke 18:9-14

Jesus draws a blunt picture in today's Gospel.
The Pharisee's prayer is almost a parody of the

thanksgiving  psalms

(see  for  example  Psalms  30,118)

.

Instead  of  praising  God  for  His  mighty  works,

the  Pharisee  congratulates  himself  for  his  own

deeds, which he presents to God in some detail.
The  tax  collector  stands  at  a  distance,  too

ashamed even to raise his eyes to God

(see Ezra 9:6)

.

He  prays  with  a  humble  and  contrite  heart

(see

Psalm  51:19)

.  He  knows  that  before God  no  one  is

righteous,  no  one  has  cause  to  boast

(see  Romans

3:10; 4:2)

.

We  see  in  the  Liturgy  today  one  of  Scripture's

abiding themes—that God "knows no favorites,"

as  today's  First  Reading  tells  us

 (see  2 Chronicles  19:7;

Acts 10:34-35; Romans 2:11)

.

God  cannot  be  bribed

(see  Deuteronomy  10:17)

.  We

cannot curry favour with Him or impress Him—

even  with  our  good  deeds  or  our  faithful

observance  of  religious  duties  such  as  tithing

and fasting.
If  we  try  to  exalt  ourselves  before  the  Lord,  as

the Pharisee does, we will be brought low

(see Luke

1:52)

.

This  should  be  a  warning  to  us—not  to  take

pride  in  our  piety,  not  to  slip  into  the  self-

righteousness of thinking that we're better than

others,  that  we're  "not  like  the  rest  of  sinful

humanity."
If we clothe ourselves with humility

(see 1 Peter 5:5-6)

—recognize that all of us are sinners in need of

His mercy—we will be exalted (

see Proverbs 29:33)

.

The prayer of the lowly, the humble, pierces the

clouds. Paul testifies to this in today's Epistle, as

He  thanks  the  Lord  for  giving  him  strength

during his imprisonment.
Paul tells us what the Psalmist sings today—that

the  Lord  redeems  the  lives  of  His  humble

servants.
We  too  must  serve  Him  willingly.  And  He  will

hear us in our distress, deliver us from evil, and

bring us safely to His heavenly kingdom.

“…Whoever Exalts Himself Will Be Humbled, But

Whoever Humbles Himself Will Be Exalted”

                                                                               !7

Question
In  the  Our  Father,  Jesus  taught  his  disciples  to  pray  for
deliverance  from  the  "Evil  One,"  not  merely  from  "evil"  as
such.  Why  hasn't  this  prayer  been  translated  accurately?
Shouldn't we be praying what Jesus taught us to pray, word
for word?
Answer
First, Jesus probably didn’t teach the Our Father in Greek

(the

language we have the Gospels in)

but in Aramaic, so any English version

is a translation of a translation.
Second,  you  can’t  always  translate  word  for  word  because
the  results  would  be  awkward  or  even  unintelligible.
Translation  invariably  involves  splitting  words  in  two,
combining  them,  dropping  them  out,  adding  them,  or
rearranging  them,  depending  on  the  rules  of  the  language
you are translating into. To refuse to do any of these things
would result in a lousy translation.

If  it  were  translated  in  a  strictly  word-for-word  manner,  the
Our Father would read like this:
Father of-us the in the heavens, let-be-made-holy the name of-
you,  let-come  the  kingdom  of-you,  let-come-about  the  will  of-
you, as in heaven also upon earth. The bread of-us the daily give
to-us  today  and  dismiss  to-us  the  debts  of-us,  as  also  we
dismissed to-the debtors of-us. And not into-bring us into trial,
but deliver us from the evil.
Third, languages obey different rules and translations cannot
be  done  in  a  strictly  word-for-word  manner. Translators  are
sometimes  confronted  with  situations  where  they  have  to
make a decision about how to render something, because the
original  can  have  more  than  one  meaning,  and  there  is  no
good way to express this ambiguity in the translation.

An  example  of  this  is  the  one  you  mention. Greek  tends  to
use the definite article

(in English, the word the)

much more than we

do. For example, you might read about "the Paul" going and
saying something to "the Peter" about "the Jesus the Christ."
Because it gets used in Greek so frequently and in ways that
English  doesn’t  use  it,  translators  have  to  decide  when  to
drop it and when to include it in their translations.
One  such  case  is  at  the  end  of  the  Our  Father.  The  Greek
literally says "the evil." Does this mean "the evil one" or does
it just mean "evil"? Because of the way the article is used in
Greek, it can have either meaning. In fact, because language
can  be  deliberately  ambiguous,  it  could  mean  both—i.e.,
"deliver us from the evil one and from evil in general.”

The  English  translators  of  the Our  Father  chose  one  option
rather than another, but it isn’t an option where you can look
at  the  Greek  and  say,  "That’s  wrong.  That’s  not  what  the
Greek says." On the other hand, one can look at the "forgive
us  our  trespasses  as  we  forgive  those  who  trespass  against
us"  and  say  "That  is  wrong. The  words  in  Greek  are  clearly
debts  and  debtors,  not  trespasses  and  those  who  trespass

against." This criticism affects only the English version of the
Our Father.

(The Pater Noster, for example, has it right: debita and debitoribus.)

Abstinence on these days from meat does not intend the

omission of eggs or dairy products.
