CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

Part One—The Profession of Faith

I Believe in God the Father—The Symbols of Faith

33. What are the symbols of faith?

The  symbols  of  faith  are  composite  formulas,  also  called
“professions  of  faith”  or  “Creeds”,  with  which  the Church
from  her  very  beginning  has  set  forth  synthetically  and
handed  on  her  own  faith  in  a  language  that  is  normative
and common to all the faithful.

34. What are the most ancient symbols (professions) of

faith?

The  most  ancient  symbols  of  faith  are  the  baptismal
creeds. Because Baptism is conferred “in the name of the
Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”

(Mt 28:19)

, the

truths  of  faith  professed  at  Baptism  are  articulated  in
reference to the three Persons of the Most Holy Trinity.

35. What are the most important symbols of the faith?

They  are  the  Apostles'  Creed  which  is  the  ancient
baptismal symbol of the Church of Rome and the Nicene-
Constantinopolitan Creed  which  stems  from  the  first  two
ecumenical  Councils,  that  of  Nicea

(325  A.D.)

 and  that  of

Constantinople

(381  A.D.)

 and  which  even  to  this  day  are

common  to  all  the  great  Churches  of  the  East  and  the
West.

“I believe in God the Father Almighty,

Creator of heaven and earth.”

36. Why does the Profession of Faith begin with the

words, “I believe in God”?

The  Profession  of  Faith  begins  with  these  words  because
the  affirmation  “I  believe  in  God”  is  the  most  important,
the source of all the other truths about man and about the
world, and about the entire life of everyone who believes in
God.

37. Why does one profess belief that there is only one

God?

Belief in the one God is professed because he has revealed
himself  to  the  people  of  Israel  as  the  only  One  when  he
said, “Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord”

(Dt 6:4)

and “there is no other”

(Is45:22)

. Jesus himself confirmed that

God is “the one Lord”

(Mk12:29)

. To confess that Jesus and the

Holy Spirit are also God and Lord does not introduce any
division into the one God.

38. With what name does God reveal Himself?

God revealed himself to Moses as the living God, “the God
of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob”

(Ex3:6)

. God

also  revealed  to  Moses  his  mysterious  name  “I Am Who  I
Am (YHWH)”. Already in Old Testament times this ineffable
name of God was replaced by the divine title Lord. Thus in
the New Testament, Jesus who was called Lord is seen as
true God.

39. Is God the only One who “is”?

Since  creatures  have  received  everything  they  are  and
have from God, only God in himself is the fullness of being
and of every perfection. God is “He who is” without origin
and without end. Jesus also reveals that he bears the divine
name “I Am”

(Jn8:28)

.

40. Why is the revelation of God's name important?

In  revealing  his  name,  God  makes  known  the  riches
contained in the ineffable mystery of his being. He alone is
from  everlasting  to  everlasting.  He  is  the  One  who
transcends the world and history. It is he who made heaven
and  earth.  He  is  the  faithful  God,  always  close  to  his
people, in order to save them. He is the highest holiness,
“rich in mercy”

(Ep2:4)

, always ready to forgive. He is the One

who  is  spiritual,  transcendent,  omnipotent,  eternal,
personal, and perfect. He is truth and love.

“God is the infinitely perfect being who is the most Holy

Trinity.”

(St Turibius of Montenegro)

FEAST OF THE WEEK

SolemnityTHE  IMMACULATE  CONCEPTION  OF  THE
BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
—Date: Fri, Dec 8: A feast called
the Conception of Mary arose in the Eastern Church in the
seventh century. It came to the West in the eighth century.
In  the  11th  century  it  received  its  present  name,  the
Immaculate Conception.  In  the  18th  century  it  became  a
feast  of  the  universal  Church.  It  is  now  recognized  as  a
solemnity.

In  1854,  Pius  IX  solemnly  proclaimed:  “The  most  Blessed
Virgin  Mary,  in  the  first  instant  of  her  conception,  by  a
singular  grace  and  privilege  granted  by  almighty  God,  in
view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the saviour of the human
race, was preserved free from all stain of original sin.”
It took a long time for this doctrine to develop. While many
Fathers  and  Doctors  of  the  Church  considered  Mary  the
greatest and holiest of the saints, they often had difficulty
in  seeing  Mary  as  sinless—either  at  her  conception  or
throughout  her  life.  This  is  one  of  the  Church  teachings
that  arose  more  from  the  piety  of  the  faithful  than  from
the insights of brilliant theologians. Even such champions
of Mary as Bernard of Clairvaux and Thomas Aquinas could
not see theological justification for this teaching.

Two Franciscans, William of Ware and Blessed John Duns
Scotus,  helped  develop  the  theology.  They  pointed  out
that  Mary’s  Immaculate  Conception  enhances  Jesus’
redemptive  work. Other  members  of  the  human  race  are
cleansed from original sin after birth. In Mary, Jesus’ work
was so powerful as to prevent original sin at the outset.
Reflection:  In  Luke  1:28  the  angel  Gabriel,  speaking  on
God’s behalf, addresses Mary as “full of grace” (or “highly
favoured”). In that context, this phrase means that Mary is
receiving all the special divine help necessary for the task
ahead. However, the Church grows in understanding with
the  help  of  the  Holy  Spirit.  The  Spirit  led  the  Church,
especially non-theologians, to the insight that Mary had to
be the most perfect work of God next to the Incarnation.
Or rather, Mary’s intimate association with the Incarnation
called for the special involvement of God in Mary’s whole
life.

The logic of piety helped God’s people to believe that Mary
was full of grace and free of sin from the first moment of
her existence. Moreover, this great privilege of Mary is the
highlight  of  all  that  God  has  done  in  Jesus.  Rightly
understood,  the  incomparable  holiness  of  Mary  shows
forth the incomparable goodness of God.

Hanging up with my 90-year-old mother, I sighed, then

said to my 96-year-old uncle, “She’s so

He shook his head sympathetically and warned, “You’re

going to have trouble with her when she gets old.”

“Mother,” says Donald, “they’re such noisy people. One

“Oh, Donald! How do you manage to put up with

them?”

“What can I do? I just lie in bed quietly, playing my

                                                                               !6

This  Sunday’s  Readings:  Isaiah  63:16-17,  19;  Psalm
80:2-3, 15-16, 18-19; 1 Corinthians 1:3-9; Mark 13:33-37

The  new  Church  year  begins  with  a  plea  for  God’s
visitation. “Oh that you would rend the heavens and
come down,” the prophet Isaiah cries in today’s First
Reading.

In today’s Psalm, too, we hear the anguished voice of
Israel, imploring God to look down from His heavenly
throne – to save and shepherd His people.

Today’s  readings  are  relatively  brief. Their  language
and  “message”  are  deceptively  simple.  But  we
should take note of the serious mood and penitential
aspect of the Liturgy today – as the people of Israel
recognize their sinfulness, their failures to keep God’s
covenant, their inability to save themselves.

And  in  this Advent  season,  we  should  see  our  own
lives  in  the  experience  of  Israel. As  we  examine  our
consciences, can’t we, too, find that we often harden
our  hearts,  refuse  His  rule,  wander  from  His  ways,
withhold our love from Him?

God is faithful, Paul reminds us in today’s Epistle. He
is  our  Father.  He  has  hearkened  to  the  cry  of  His
children, coming down from heaven for Israel’s sake
and for ours – to redeem us from our exile from God,
to restore us to His love.

In  Jesus,  we  have  seen  the  Father

(see  John  14:8-9)

. The

Father has let His face shine upon us. He is the good
shepherd

(see  John  10:11-15)

 come  to  guide  us  to  the

heavenly  kingdom.  No  matter  how  far  we  have
strayed, He will give us new life if we turn to Him, if
we call upon His holy name, if we pledge anew never
again to withdraw from Him.

As  Paul  says  today,  He  has  given  us  every  spiritual
gift  –  especially  the  Eucharist  and  penance  –  to
strengthen  us  as  we  await Christ’s  final  coming.  He
will keep us firm to the end – if we let Him.

So, in this season of repentance, we should heed the
warning  –  repeated  three  times  by  our  Lord  in
today’s Gospel – to be watchful, for we know not the
hour when the Lord of the house will return.

“And What I Say To You I Say To All: Keep Awake”

CATHOLIC ANSWERS

www.catholic.com

BOWING ISN'T WORSHIPPING

Question
Catholics say that they don’t worship Mary, but isn’t
it the case that their actions suggest otherwise, such
as when they bow before a statue of Mary?
Answer
The question assumes that bowing before something
or someone necessarily involves worship. But this is
not true.

For  example,  Solomon  didn’t  offer  worship  to  his
mother when he bowed before her in 1 Kings 2:19. It
was simply a gesture of honour, since Bathsheba was
the queen mother. Isaac wasn’t prophesying that the
nations  would  worship  his  son  Jacob  when  he  said,
“Let  peoples  serve  you,  and  nations  bow  down  to
you”

(Gen.  27:29)

.  He  was  merely  indicating  that  the

nations would honour Jacob and his descendants.

Moreover,  the  act  of  bowing  can’t  be  idolatrous  in
and  of  itself,  because  God  commands  that  it  be
directed to finite beings. For example, in Revelation
3:9  Jesus  says  that  he  will  make  “those  of  the
synagogue of Satan” “bow down” before the feet of
the  Christians  in  Philadelphia.  If  bowing  before
another were an act of worship, then Jesus would be
commanding idolatry. But that’s absurd.

It’s possible that someone who bows before a statue
of  Mary  might  offer  the  statue,  or  Mary  herself,
worship. But the idolatry would not be due to the act
of bowing. It would be due to the intentional offering
of worship; like in the case of Cornelius who bowed
before  Peter  and  worshipped  him

(Acts  10:25-26)

.  If  a

Catholic were to do such a thing, they would need to
repent  and  begin  offering  worship  to  the  one  who
alone has a right to our worship—namely, God.
