CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

PART TWO—THE CELEBRATION OF THE CHRISTIAN

MYSTERY

THE SACRAMENT OF THE EUCHARIST

282. How is Christ present in the Eucharist?

Jesus  Christ  is  present  in  the  Eucharist  in  a  unique  and
incomparable  way.  He  is  present  in  a  true,  real  and
substantial way, with his Body and his Blood, with his Soul
and  his  Divinity.  In  the  Eucharist,  therefore,  there  is
present in a sacramental way, that is, under the Eucharistic
species  of  bread  and  wine,  Christ  whole  and  entire,  God
and Man.

283. What is the meaning of transubstantiation?

Transubstantiation  means  the  change  of  the  whole
substance of bread into the substance of the Body of Christ
and of the whole substance of wine into the substance of
his Blood. This change is brought about in the eucharistic
prayer through the action of the word of Christ and by the
action  of  the  Holy  Spirit.  However,  the  outward
characteristics  of  bread  and  wine,  that  is  the  “eucharistic
species”, remain unaltered.

285. How long does the presence of Christ last in the

Eucharist?

The presence of Christ continues in the Eucharist as long as
the eucharistic bread exists in its appearance of bread.
286. What kind of worship is due to the sacrament of the

Eucharist?

The  worship  due  to  the  sacrament  of  the  Eucharist,
whether during the celebration of the Mass or outside it, is
the  worship  of  latria,  that  is,  the  adoration  given  to God
alone. The Church guards with the greatest care Hosts that
have been consecrated. She brings them to the sick and to
other persons who find it impossible to participate at Mass.
She  also  presents  them  for  the  solemn  adoration  of  the
faithful  and  she  bears  them  in  processions.  The  Church
encourages  the  faithful  to  make  frequent  visits  to  adore
the Blessed Sacrament reserved in the tabernacle.

287. Why is the Holy Eucharist the paschal banquet?

The  Holy  Eucharist  is  the  paschal  banquet  in  as  much  as
Christ sacramentally makes present his Passover and gives
us his Body and Blood, offered as food and drink, uniting us
to himself and to one another in his sacrifice.

288. What is the meaning of the altar?

The  altar  is  the  symbol  of  Christ  himself  who  is  present
both as sacrificial victim

(the altar of the sacrifice)

and as food from

heaven which is given to us

(the table of the Lord).

289. When does the Church oblige her members to

participate at Holy Mass?

The Church obliges the faithful to participate at Holy Mass
every  Sunday  and  on  holy  days  of  obligation.  She
recommends  participation  at  Holy  Mass  on  other  days  as
well.

290. When must one receive Holy Communion?

The Church recommends that the faithful, if they have the
required  dispositions,  receive  Holy Communion  whenever
they participate at Holy Mass. However, the Church obliges

them  to  receive  Holy  Communion  at  least  once  a  year
during the Easter season.

291. What is required to receive Holy Communion?

To  receive  Holy  Communion  one  must  be  fully
incorporated into the Catholic Church and be in the state of
grace, that is, not conscious of being in mortal sin. Anyone
who  is  conscious  of  having  committed  a  grave  sin  must
first receive the sacrament of Reconciliation before going
to  Communion.  Also  important  for  those  receiving  Holy
Communion  are  a  spirit  of  recollection  and  prayer,
observance  of  the  fast  prescribed  by  the  Church,  and  an
appropriate disposition of the body (

gestures and dress)

as a sign

of respect for Christ.

292. What are the fruits of Holy Communion?

Holy Communion increases our union with Christ and with
his  Church.  It  preserves  and  renews  the  life  of  grace
received at Baptism and Confirmation and makes us grow
in love for our neighbour. It strengthens us in charity, wipes
away  venial  sins  and  preserves  us  from  mortal  sin  in  the
future.

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 host a coffee

Sunday at your mass?

Solemnity  of  All  Saints—Nov  1:    The  Story  of  the
Solemnity  of  All  Saints.  The  earliest  certain
observance of a feast in honour of all the saints is an
early  fourth-century  commemoration  of  “all  the
martyrs.”  In

t h e  e a r l y

s e v e n t h

century,  after

s u c c e s s i v e

w a v e s

o f

i n v a d e r s

plundered  the

c a t a c o m b s ,

Pope  Boniface

IV  gathered  up

s o m e

2 8

wagonloads  of  bones  and  reinterred  them  beneath
the Pantheon, a Roman temple dedicated to all the
gods. The pope rededicated the shrine as a Christian
church.  According  to  Venerable  Bede,  the  pope
intended “that the memory of all the saints might in
the  future  be  honoured  in  the  place  which  had
formerly been dedicated to the worship not of gods
but of demons”

(On the Calculation of Time)

.

But the rededication of the Pantheon, like the earlier
commemoration of all the martyrs, occurred in May.
Many Eastern Churches still honour all the saints in
the  spring,  either  during  the  Easter  season  or
immediately after Pentecost.

How  the  Western  Church  came  to  celebrate  this
feast, now recognized as a solemnity, in November
is a puzzle to historians. The Anglo-Saxon theologian
Alcuin observed the feast on November 1 in 800, as
did his friend Arno, Bishop of Salzburg. Rome finally
adopted that date in the ninth century.

Reflection: This  feast  first  honoured  martyrs.  Later,
when  Christians  were  free  to  worship  according  to
their  consciences,  the  Church  acknowledged  other
paths  to  sanctity.  In  the  early  centuries  the  only
criterion  was  popular  acclaim,  even  when  the
bishop’s approval became the final step in placing a
commemoration  on  the  calendar.  The  first  papal
canonization  occurred  in  993;  the  lengthy  process
now  required  to  prove  extraordinary  sanctity  took
form in the last 500 years. Today’s feast honours the
obscure as well as the famous—the saints each of us
have known.

Feast of All Souls—Nov 2.
The Church has encouraged prayer for the dead from
the earliest times as an act of Christian charity. “If we
had  no  care  for  the  dead,”  Augustine  noted,  “we

would not be in the habit of praying for them.” Yet
pre-Christian rites for the deceased retained such a
strong  hold  on  the  superstitious  imagination  that  a
liturgical  commemoration  was  not  observed  until
the early Middle Ages, when monastic communities
began  to  mark  an  annual  day  of  prayer  for  the
departed members.

In the middle of the 11th century, Saint Odilo, abbot
of  Cluny,  France,  decreed  that  all  Cluniac
monasteries offer special prayers and sing the Office
for the Dead on November 2, the day after the feast
of All Saints. The custom spread from Cluny and was
finally adopted throughout the Roman Church.

The  theological  underpinning  of  the  feast  is  the
acknowledgment of human frailty. Since few people
achieve  perfection  in  this  life  but,  rather,  go  to  the
grave  still  scarred  with  traces  of  sinfulness,  some
period of purification seems necessary before a soul
comes  face-to-face  with  God. The  Council  of Trent
affirmed  this  purgatory  state  and  insisted  that  the
prayers  of  the  living  can  speed  the  process  of
purification.

Superstition  easily  clung  to  the  observance.
Medieval  popular  belief  held  that  the  souls  in
purgatory  could  appear  on  this  day  in  the  form  of
witches,  toads  or  will-o’-the-wisps.  Graveside  food

processions  or

decorating graves with flowers and lights. This feast
is observed with great fervour in Mexico.

Reflection:  Whether  or  not  one  should  pray  for  the
dead  is  one  of  the  great  arguments  which  divide
Christians. Appalled  by  the  abuse  of  indulgences  in
the  Church  of  his  day,  Martin  Luther  rejected  the
concept  of  purgatory. Yet  prayer  for  a  loved  one  is,
for the believer, a way of erasing any distance, even
death.  In  prayer  we  stand  in God’s  presence  in  the
company  of  someone  we  love,  even  if  that  person
has gone before us into death.

The Readings:

Wisdom 11:22-12

1 Psalm 145:1-2, 8-11, 13-14

2 Thessalonians 1:11-2:2

Luke 19:1-10

Our Lord is a lover of souls, the Liturgy shows us

today. As we sing in today's Psalm, He is slow to

anger  and  compassionate  towards  all  that  He

has made.

In  His  mercy,  our  First  Reading  tells  us,  He

overlooks  our  sins  and  ignorance,  giving  us

space  that  we  might  repent  and  not  perish  in

our sinfulness (see Wisdom 12:10; 2 Peter 3:9).

In  Jesus,  He  has  become  the  Saviour  of  His

children,  coming  himself  to  save  the  lost  (see

Isaiah 63:8-9; Ezekiel 34:16).

In the figure of Zacchaeus in today's Gospel, we

have  a  portrait  of  a  lost  soul.  He  is  a  tax

collector, by profession a "sinner" excluded from

Israel's religious life. Not only that, he is a "chief

tax collector." Worse still, he is a rich man who

has apparently gained his living by fraud.

But  Zacchaeus'  faith  brings  salvation  to  his

house.  He  expresses  his  faith  in  his  fervent

desire to "see" Jesus, even humbling himself to

climb  a  tree  just  to  watch  Him  pass  by.  While

those  of  loftier  religious  stature  react  to  Jesus

with  grumbling,  Zacchaeus  receives  Him  with

joy.

Zacchaeus  is  not  like  the  other  rich  men  Jesus

meets or tells stories about (see Luke 12:16-21;

16:19-31;  18:18-25).  He  repents,  vowing  to  pay

restitution to those he has cheated and to give

half of his money to the poor.

By  his  humility  he  is  exalted,  made  worthy  to

welcome the Lord into his house. By his faith, he

is justified, made a descendant of Abraham (see

Romans 4:16-17).

As  He  did  last  week, Jesus  is  again  using  a  tax

collector  to  show  us  the  faith  and  humility  we

need to obtain salvation.

We  are  also  called  to  seek  Jesus  daily  with

repentant hearts. And we should make our own

Paul's prayer in today's Epistle: that God might

make us worthy of His calling, that by our lives

we might give glory to the name of Jesus.

“Today, Salvation Has Come To This House…”

                                                                               !7

Question
Is it okay to hang rosary beads from your rearview mirror?
Answer
If it is done as a statement of faith or for some other just
purpose,  hanging  rosary  beads  on  the  rearview  mirror
would  not  violate  canon  law’s  requirement  that
sacramentals be treated with due reverence:

Sacred  objects,  set  aside  for  divine  worship  by
dedication  or  blessing,  are  to  be  treated  with
reverence.  They  are  not  to  be  made  over  to
secular  or  inappropriate  use,  even  though  they
may belong to private persons (CIC 1171).

Question
I've always wondered what the Catholic Church means by
"blessing,"  especially  in  blessing  objects.  Does  the  object
bear a new and real virtue?
Answer
Briefly, a blessing on an object is a prayer that praises God
for  the  act  of  creating  this  object  and  implores  that  the
object be used for his greater glory. The Catechism puts it
this way:

Among  sacramentals,  blessings  (of  persons,
meals,  objects,  and  places)  come  first.  Every
blessing  praises  God  and  prays  for  his  gifts.  In
Christ, Christians  are  blessed  by God  the  Father
"with  every  spiritual  blessing."  This  is  why  the
Church imparts blessings by invoking the name of
Jesus,  usually  while  making  the  holy  sign  of  the
cross of Christ. (CCC 1671)

Question
I've  been  having  trouble  lately  defending  the  practice  of
praying for those who are sick. Praying that those who are
ill and their loved ones would accept God's will, whatever
that may be—that type of prayer makes sense to me. But
doesn't praying for someone's healing imply that we have
some  control  over  God's  will?  If  God  felt  it  was  time  to
bring a sick person home to him, would everyone's prayers
for  healing  somehow  change  God's  mind,  as  if  what  we
wanted  was  better  for  the  world  than God's  plan? And  if
prayer  can  accomplish  that,  it  seems  unfair  to  the  sick
person who has no one to pray for him.
Answer
Do  you  think  that  those  people  who  asked  Jesus  to  heal
them  in  the  Gospels  should  have  kept  quiet?  If  Jesus
wanted  to  heal  them,  he  would  know  their  need  and
respond if he chose to. But the fact is that Jesus told us to
ask for what we need (cf. Mk 11:24, Lk 18:1). He obviously
wanted  those  people  to  express  their  confidence  in  his
power and love. So it is with us. It is not a matter of trying
to  change God’s  mind. God  may  very  well  intend  to  heal
certain  sick  persons  if  they  ask  him  to.  The  prayer  of
petition  requires  faith.  It  is  good  for  us,  and  he  always
wants what is good for us.
