CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC 

CHURCH 

PART FOUR—CHRISTIAN PRAYER

Section One:

Prayer in the Christian Life

THE TRADITION OF PRAYER

557. What is the importance of Tradition in regard

to prayer?

In  the  Church  it  is  through  living Tradition  that  the
Holy Spirit teaches the children of God how to pray.
In fact prayer cannot be reduced to the spontaneous
outpouring  of  an  interior  impulse;  rather  it  implies
contemplation,  study  and  a  grasp  of  the  spiritual
realities one experiences.

AT THE WELLSPRINGS OF PRAYER

558. What are the sources of Christian prayer?

They  are:  the  Word  of  God  which  gives  us  “the
surpassing knowledge” of Christ (Philippians 3:8); the
Liturgy of the Church that proclaims, makes present
and  communicates  the  mystery  of  salvation;  the
theological virtues; and everyday situations because
in them we can encounter God.

“I  love  you,  Lord,  and  the  only  grace  I
ask is to love you eternally. … My God, if
my tongue cannot say in every moment
that  I  love  you,  I  want  my  heart  to
repeat  it  to  you  as  often  as  I  draw
breath.”

(The Curé of Ars, Saint John Mary Vianney)

THE WAY OF PRAYER

559. In the Church are there different ways of

praying?

In the Church there are various ways of praying that
are  tied  to  different  historical,  social  and  cultural
contexts. The Magisterium of the Church has the task
of discerning the fidelity of these ways of praying to
the  tradition  of  apostolic  faith.  It  is  for  pastors  and
catechists  to  explain  their  meaning  which  is  always
related to Jesus Christ.

560. What is the way of our prayer?

The  way  of  our  prayer  is  Christ  because  prayer  is
directed to God our Father but reaches him only if we
pray – at least implicitly – in the name of Jesus. His
humanity is in effect the only way by which the Holy
Spirit  teaches  us  to  pray  to  our  Father.  Therefore

liturgical  prayers  conclude  with  the  formula:
“Through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

561. What is the role of the Holy Spirit in prayer?

Since  the  Holy  Spirit  is  the  interior  Master  of
Christian prayer and “we do not know how to pray as
we ought” (Romans 8:26), the Church exhorts us to
invoke  him  and  implore  him  on  every  occasion:
“Come, Holy Spirit!”

562. How is Christian prayer Marian?

Because of her singular cooperation with the action
of the Holy Spirit, the Church loves to pray to Mary
and  with  Mary,  the  perfect  ‘pray-er’,  and  to
“magnify”  and  invoke  the  Lord  with  her.  Mary  in
effect  shows  us  the  “Way”  who  is  her Son,  the  one
and only Mediator.

563. How does the Church pray to Mary?

Above all with the Hail Mary, the prayer with which
the Church asks the intercession of the Virgin. Other
Marian prayers are the Rosary, the Akathistos hymn,
the  Paraclesis,  and  the  hymns  and  canticles  of
diverse Christian traditions.

SAINT OF THE WEEK

Feast: Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary—Friday, Sep 8:
The Church  has  celebrated  Mary’s  birth  since  at  least  the
sixth century. A September birth was chosen because the
Eastern Church begins its Church year with September. The
September 8 date helped determine the date for the feast
of the Immaculate Conception on December 8.

Scripture  does  not  give  an  account  of  Mary’s  birth.
However, the apocryphal Protoevangelium of James fills in
the  gap.  This  work  has  no  historical  value,  but  it  does
reflect  the  development  of  Christian  piety.  According  to
this account, Anna and Joachim are infertile but pray for a
child. They receive the promise of a child who will advance
God’s  plan  of  salvation  for  the  world.  Such  a  story,  like
many  biblical  counterparts,  stresses  the  special  presence
of God in Mary’s life from the beginning.

Saint  Augustine  connects  Mary’s  birth  with  Jesus’  saving
work.  He  tells  the  earth  to  rejoice  and  shine  forth  in  the
light of her birth. “She is the flower of the field from whom
bloomed the precious lily of the valley. Through her birth
the nature inherited from our first parents is changed.” The
opening prayer at Mass speaks of the birth of Mary’s Son
as  the  dawn  of  our  salvation,  and  asks  for  an  increase  of
peace.

Reflection
We can see every human birth as a call for new hope in the
world. The love of two human beings has joined with God
in his creative work. The loving parents have shown hope in
a world filled with travail. The new child has the potential
to be a channel of God’s love and peace to the world.

This is all true in a magnificent way in Mary. If Jesus is the
perfect  expression  of  God’s  love,  Mary  is  the
foreshadowing  of  that  love.  If  Jesus  has  brought  the
fullness of salvation, Mary is its dawning.

Birthday  celebrations  bring  happiness  to  the  celebrant  as
well  as  to  family  and  friends.  Next  to  the  birth  of  Jesus,
Mary’s  birth  offers  the  greatest  possible  happiness  to  the
world.  Each  time  we  celebrate  her  birth,  we  can
confidently hope for an increase of peace in our hearts and
in the world at large.

                                                                               !6

This  Sunday’s  Readings:  Jeremiah  20:7-9;  Psalm
63:2-6, 8-9; Romans 12:1-2; Matthew 16:21-27

Today’s First Reading catches the prophet Jeremiah
in a moment of weakness. His intimate lamentation
contains  some  of  the  strongest  language  of  doubt
found  in  the  Bible.  Following  God’s  call,  he  feels
abandoned.  Preaching  His  Word  has  brought  him
only derision and reproach.

But God does not deceive—and Jeremiah knows this.
He  tests  the  just  (see  Jeremiah  20:11–12),  and
disciplines  His  children  through  their  sufferings  and
trials (see Hebrews 12:5–7).

What  Jeremiah  learns  Jesus  states  explicitly  in
today’s Gospel. To follow Him is to take up a cross, to
deny  yourself—your  priorities,  preferences,  and
comforts. It is to be willing to give it all up, even life
itself,  for  the  sake  of  His  gospel.  As  Paul  says  in
today’s  Epistle,  we  have  to  join  ourselves  to  the
Passion  of  Christ,  to  offer  our  bodies—our  whole
beings—as living sacrifices to God.

By  His  Cross,  Jesus  has  shown  us  what  Israel’s
sacrifices  of  animals  were  meant  to  teach—that  we
owe to God all that we have.

God’s kindness is a greater good than life itself, as we
sing in today’s Psalm. The only thanks we can offer is
our spiritual worship—to give our lives to the service
of His will (see Hebrews 10:3–11; Psalm 50:14, 23).

Peter doesn’t yet get this in today’s Gospel. As it was
for Jeremiah, the cross is a stumbling block for Peter
(see  1  Corinthians  1:23).  This  too  is  our  natural
temptation—to refuse to believe that our sufferings
play a necessary part in God’s plan.

That’s how people think, Jesus tells us today. But we
are  called  to  the  renewal  of  our  minds—to  think  as
God thinks, to will what He wills.

In the Mass, we once again offer ourselves as perfect
and pleasing sacrifices of praise (see Hebrews 13:15).
We bless Him as we live, confident that we will find
our  lives  in  losing  them,  that  with  the  riches  of  His
banquet, our souls will be satisfied.

“…Whoever Looses Their Live For My Sake Will Find It.”

The Lord

CATHOLIC ANSWERS

www.catholic.com

WHY CHURCH WON'T EMBRACE "SAME-

SEX" MARRIAGE

Full Question
Will  the Catholic Church  go  the  way  of  the
Church of England and other denominations
by accepting same-sex marriage?
Answer
Because  it  is  the  one,  true Church  founded
by  Jesus  Christ,  the  Catholic  Church  is
protected  from  teaching  formal  error
regarding  “same-sex"  marriage  and  other
intrinsic moral evils. Indeed, Jesus said that
the  gates  of  hell  would  not  prevail  against
his Church

(Matt. 16:18-19)

, even if some Church

representatives  may  not  be  faithful  to  the
Church’s teaching. And so our trust is firmly
grounded in our divine Saviour.

For more on this

subject, see CCC 2357-59.

WHY MEDIUMS AND PSYCHICS ARE NOT

OKAY

Full Question
Why does the Church forbid consulting with
mediums and psychics?
Answer
The  Bible  strongly  condemns  spiritism,
mediums,  the  occult,  and  psychics

(Lev.  20:27,

Deut. 18:10-13)

.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church:
God can reveal the future to his prophets or to
other  saints. Still,  a  sound Christian  attitude
consists in putting oneself confidently into the
hands  of  God’s  Providence  for  whatever
concerns  the  future  and  giving  up  all
unhealthy curiosity about it. Lack of planning,
however,  can  constitute  a  lack  of
responsibility.
All  forms  of  divination  are  to  be  rejected:
recourse  to  Satan  or  demons,  conjuring  up
the dead or other practices falsely supposed
to  "unveil"  the  future.  Consulting
horoscopes,  astrology,  palm  reading,
interpretation  of  omens  and  lots,  the
phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to
mediums all conceal a desire for power over
time, history, and, in the last analysis, other
human beings, as well as a wish to conciliate
hidden powers. They contradict the honour,
respect, and loving fear that we owe to God
alone

(2115-2116).

If we are looking to anything other than God
for  help  with  the  present  or  future,  we  are
violating the first commandment.

Catholic Women’s League (CWL)

& K of C of St JXXIII

The Catholic Women’s League of JXXIII & the

Knights of Columbus are donating a new floor for

our Hall this summer.

Also, CWL have kindly accepted to research the
possibility of federal financing for a wheel-chair

lift that can be installed on the staircase leading

down to the hall. This is a program offered to
charitable institutions for disability access to

buildings.
