CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

PART TWO—THE CELEBRATION OF THE CHRISTIAN

MYSTERY

THE SEVEN SACRAMENTS OF THE CHURCH

The seven sacraments are:

Baptism  /  Confirmation  /  Holy  Eucharist  /    Penance
Anointing of the Sick / Holy Orders / Matrimony

250. How are the sacraments of the Church divided?

The  sacraments  are  divided  into:  the  sacraments  of
Christian  initiation  (Baptism,  Confirmation,  and  Holy
Eucharist);  the  sacraments  of  healing  (Penance  and
Anointing of the Sick);, and the sacraments at the service
of communion and mission (Holy Orders and Matrimony).
The  sacraments  touch  all  the  important  moments  of
Christian life. All of the sacraments are ordered to the Holy
Eucharist “as to their end” (Saint Thomas Aquinas).

CHAPTER ONE

The sacraments of Christian initiation

251. How is Christian initiation brought about?

Christian  initiation  is  accomplished  by  means  of  the
sacraments  which  establish  the  foundations  of  Christian
life. The  faithful  born  anew  by  Baptism  are  strengthened
by Confirmation and are then nourished by the Eucharist.

THE SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM

252. What names are given to the first sacrament of

initiation?

This sacrament is primarily called Baptism because of the
central rite with which it is celebrated. To baptize means to
“immerse” in water. The one who is baptized is immersed
into  the  death  of  Christ  and  rises  with  him  as  a  “new
creature” (2 Corinthians 5:17). This sacrament is also called
the  “bath  of  regeneration  and  renewal  in  the  Holy
Spirit” (Titus 3:5); and it is called “enlightenment” because
the baptized becomes “a son of light” (Ephesians 5:8).

253. How is Baptism prefigured in the Old Covenant?

In  the  Old  Covenant  Baptism  was  pre-figured  in  various
ways: water, seen as source of life and of death; in the Ark
of  Noah,  which  saved  by  means  of  water;  in  the  passing
through the Red Sea, which liberated Israel from Egyptian
slavery;  in  the  crossing  of  the  Jordan  River,  that  brought
Israel into the promised land which is the image of eternal
life.

254. Who brought to fulfillment those prefigurations?

All the Old Covenant prefigurations find their fulfillment in
Jesus Christ. At  the  beginning  of  his  public  life  Jesus  had
himself baptized by John the Baptist in the Jordan. On the
cross, blood and water, signs of Baptism and the Eucharist,
flowed  from  his  pierced  side.  After  his  Resurrection  he
gave  to  his  apostles  this  mission:  “Go  forth  and  make
disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father  and  of  the  Son  and  of  the  Holy  Spirit”  (Matthew
28:19).

255. Starting when and to whom has the Church

administered Baptism?

From  the  day  of  Pentecost,  the Church  has  administered
Baptism to anyone who believes in Jesus Christ.
256. In what does the essential rite of Baptism consist?

The essential rite of this sacrament consists in immersing
the  candidate  in  water  or  pouring  water  over  his  or  her
head  while  invoking  the  name  of  the  Father  and  the Son
and the Holy Spirit.

257. Who can receive Baptism?

Every person not yet baptized is able to receive Baptism.

258. Why does the Church baptize infants?

The  Church  baptizes  infants  because  they  are  born  with
original sin. They need to be freed from the power of the
Evil  One  and  brought  into  that  realm  of  freedom  which
belongs to the children of God.

M e m o r i a l — S t  L A W R E N C E  R U I Z  &

COMPANIONS,  MARTYRS:  Wed,  Sept  28:

Lorenzo Ruiz was born in Binondo, Manila, to a

Chinese father and a Filipino mother who were

both  Catholic.  His  father  taught  him  Chinese

while his mother taught him Tagalog.[1][2]

Ruiz  served  as  an  altar  boy  at  the  Binondo

Church. After being educated by the Dominican

friars  for  a  few  years,  Ruiz  earned  the  title  of

escribano  (calligrapher)  because  of  his  skillful

penmanship.  He  became  a  member  of  the

Cofradia del Santísimo Rosario (Confraternity of

the  Most  Holy  Rosary).  He  married  Rosario,  a

native, and they had two sons and a daughter.

[3]  The  Ruiz  family  led  a  generally  peaceful,

religious and content life.

In  1636,  whilst  working  as  a  clerk  for  the

Binondo  Church,  Ruiz  was  falsely  accused  of

killing a Spaniard. Ruiz sought asylum on board

a  ship  with  three  Dominican  priests:  Saint

Antonio Gonzalez, Saint Guillermo Courtet, and

Saint  Miguel  de  Aozaraza;  a  Japanese  priest,

Saint Vicente  Shiwozuka  de  la  Cruz;  and  a  lay

leper  Saint  Lázaro  of  Kyoto.  Ruiz  and  his

companions  left  for Okinawa  on  10 June  1636,

with  the  aid  of  the  Dominican  fathers  and  Fr

Giovanni Yago.[1][2][4]

Martyrdom

The  Tokugawa  Shogunate  was  persecuting

Christians by the time Ruiz had arrived in Japan.

The missionaries were arrested and thrown into

prison,  and  after  two  years,  they  were

transferred to Nagasaki to face trial by torture.

He and his companions faced different types of

torture.[3]

On  27  September  1637,  Ruiz  and  his

companions  were  taken  to  the  Nishizaka  Hill,

where they were tortured by being hung upside

down over a pit. This form of torture was known
as tsurushi (

) in Japanese or horca y hoya

("gallows and pit") in Spanish. The method was

supposed  to  be  extremely  painful:  though  the

victim was bound, one hand was always left free

so that victims may signal their desire to recant,

leading  to  their  release.  Ruiz  refused  to

renounce Christianity and died from blood loss

and  suffocation.  His  body  was  cremated,  with

the ashes thrown into the sea.[1][2][4]

Reflection

We ordinary Christians of today—how would we

stand  up  in  the  circumstances  these  martyrs

faced?  We  sympathize  with  the  two  who

temporarily  denied  the  faith.  We  understand

Lorenzo’s  terrible  moment  of  temptation.  But

we  see  also  the  courage—unexplainable  in

human terms—which surged from their store of

faith. Martyrdom, like ordinary life, is a miracle

of grace.

The Readings:

Amos 6:1, 4-7

Psalm 146:7-10

1 Timothy 6:11-16

Luke 16:19-31

The rich and powerful are visited with woe and

exile in today's Liturgy—not for their wealth but

for their refusal to share it; not for their power

but for their indifference to the suffering at their

door.

The complacent leaders in today's First Reading

feast  on  fine  foods  and  wines,  revelling  while

the house of Joseph, the kingdom of Israel (see

Amos 5:6), collapses around them.

The  rich  man  in  today's Gospel  also  lives  like  a

king—dressed in royal purple and fine linen (see

1 Maccabees 8:14).

The rich man symbolizes Israel's failure to keep

the Old Covenant, to heed the commandments

of Moses and the prophets. This is the sin of the

rulers  in  today's  First  Reading.  Born  to  the

nation  God  favoured  first,  they  could  claim

Abraham as their father. But for their failure to

give - their inheritance is taken away.

The  rulers  are  exiled  from  their  homeland. The

rich man is punished with an exile far greater—

eternity  with  a  "great  chasm"  fixed  between

himself and God.

In  this  world,  the  rich  and  powerful  make  a

name for themselves (see Genesis 11:4) and dine

sumptuously,  while  the  poor  remain

anonymous,  refused  an  invitation  to  their

feasts.

But  notice  that  the  Lord  today  knows  Lazarus

by name, and Joseph in his sufferings—while the

leaders and the rich man have no name.

Today's Liturgy is a call to repentance—to heed

the  warning  of  One  who  was  raised  from  the

dead. To lay hold of the eternal life He promises,

we  must  pursue  righteousness  and  keep  the

commandment  of  love,  as  Paul  exhorts  in

today's Epistle.

"The  Lord  loves  the  just,"  we  sing  in  today's

Psalm.

“They Have Moses And The Prophets; They Should

Listen To Them.”

YOUTH MINISTRY

Question
What does Hosanna mean?
Full Question
At  Mass  we  proclaim,  “Hosanna  in  the  highest.”
What does Hosanna mean?
Answer
"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna  in  the  highest!"  (Matt.  21:9)  was  shouted
by the crowds as Jesus entered Jerusalem. The word
hosanna  is  associated  with  rejoicing.  According  to
the Catholic Encyclopedia:

The  general  opinion  is  that  of  St.  Jerome,  that  the
word originated from two Hebrew words of Psalm 25.
This  psalm,  "  Confitemini  Domino  quoniam  bonus,"
was recited by one of the priests every day during the
procession  round  the  altar,  during  the  Feast  of
Tabernacles,  when  the  people  were  commanded  to
"rejoice  before  the  Lord"  (Lev.  23:40);  and  on  the
seventh day it was recited each time during the seven
processions.  When  the  priest  reached  verses  25–26,
the  trumpet  sounded,  all  the  people,  including  boys,
waved their branches of palms, myrtles, willows, etc.,
and  shouted  with  the  priest:  hoshi’a  na.  This  was
repeated  so  frequently  that  it  became  abbreviated
into “hosanna."

Question
Can  we  pray  directly  to  God  or  must  all  prayer  go
through Jesus?
Full Question
Recently  a  Methodist  friend  said  that  you  couldn't
pray  directly  to  God,  that  you  must  go  through
Jesus. Can we pray directly to God or must all prayer
go through Jesus?
Answer
It  is  important  to  make  the  distinction  between
prayer  addressed  to  God  the  Father  and  prayer
having access to the Father.

Jesus taught us to pray directly to the Father when
he gave us the Our Father (Matt. 6:9). But we should
understand  that  our  prayers  have  access  to  the
Father only through Jesus, for he proclaimed, "I am
the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to
the Father, but by me" (John 14:6).

LENTEN FAST & ABSTINENCE

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.

Age Requirements

"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

th

year.

Fridays of the Year

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

on all the Fridays of the year (except on Solemnities) in

commemoration of our Saviour’s death.
