CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

Part Two

The Seven Sacraments of the Church

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.

VOCATIONS

If we really believe in something, it does not seem to

be a sacrifice to give up everything else to pursue that

new dream.

Jesus  asks  the  same  as  any  great  leader...total
dedication;  but  He  promises  rewards  no  one  else  can
promise.  “You  will  have  treasure  in  Heaven,  then
come, follow Me.” Come, follow the call of Christ as a
priest,  sister,  brother  or  deacon.  If  you  think  God  is
calling  you  to  one  of  these,  call  Fr.  Chris  Lemieux,

SMILE

Poetry

That's not my age; it's just not true.

My heart is young; the time just flew.

I'm staring at this strange old face,

And someone else is in my place!

——

Roses are red.

Violets are blue.

God made me pretty.

What happened to you!

——-

Last night I held a lovely hand,

It was so small and neat,

I thought my heart with joy would burst

So wild was every beat.

No other hand unto my heart

Could greater pleasure bring

Than the one so dear I held last night.

SAINTS OF THE WEEK

Memorial:  St  Ignatius  of  Antioch,  Bishop,  Martyr
Wednesday, October 17
: Born in Syria, Ignatius converted
to Christianity and eventually became bishop of Antioch. In
the year 107, Emperor Trajan visited Antioch and forced the
Christians  there  to  choose  between  death  and  apostasy.
Ignatius would not deny Christ and thus was condemned to
be put to death in Rome.

Ignatius is well known for the seven letters he wrote on the
long  journey  from Antioch  to  Rome.  Five  of  these  letters
are  to  churches  in  Asia  Minor;  they  urge  the  Christians
there to remain faithful to God and to obey their superiors.
He warns them against heretical doctrines, providing them
with the solid truths of the Christian faith.

The  sixth  letter  was  to  Polycarp,  bishop  of  Smyrna,  who
was  later  martyred  for  the  faith. The  final  letter  begs  the
Christians in Rome not to try to stop his martyrdom. “The
only thing I ask of you is to allow me to offer the libation of
my  blood  to  God.  I  am  the  wheat  of  the  Lord;  may  I  be
ground  by  the  teeth  of  the  beasts  to  become  the
immaculate bread of Christ.” Ignatius bravely met the lions
in the Circus Maximus.

Reflection:  Ignatius’s  great  concern  was  for  the  unity  and
order  of  the  Church.  Even  greater  was  his  willingness  to
suffer martyrdom rather than deny his Lord Jesus Christ. He
did not draw attention to his own suffering, but to the love of
God  which  strengthened  him.  He  knew  the  price  of
commitment  and  would  not  deny  Christ,  even  to  save  his
own life.

FEAST:  St  Luke,  Evangelist—Thursday,  October  18:  Luke
wrote one of the major portions of the New Testament, a
two-volume work comprising the third Gospel and Acts of
the  Apostles.  In  the  two  books  he  shows  the  parallel
between the life of Christ and that of the Church. He is the
only Gentile Christian among the Gospel writers. Tradition
holds him to be a native of Antioch, and Paul calls him “our
beloved  physician.”  His  Gospel  was  probably  written
between 70 and 85 A.D.

Luke appears in Acts during Paul’s second journey, remains
at Philippi for several years until Paul returns from his third
journey, accompanies Paul to Jerusalem, and remains near
him when he is imprisoned in Caesarea. During these two
years,  Luke  had  time  to  seek  information  and  interview
persons  who  had  known  Jesus.  He  accompanied  Paul  on
the  dangerous  journey  to  Rome  where  he  was  a  faithful
companion.

Luke’s unique character may best be seen by the emphases
of his Gospel, which has been given a number of subtitles:
1) The Gospel of Mercy
2) The Gospel of Universal Salvation
3) The Gospel of the Poor
4) The Gospel of Absolute Renunciation
5) The Gospel of Prayer and the Holy Spirit
6) The Gospel of Joy

Reflection: Luke wrote as a Gentile for Gentile Christians. His
Gospel and Acts of the Apostles reveal his expertise in classic
Greek style as well as his knowledge of Jewish sources. There
is a warmth to Luke’s writing that sets it apart from that of
the  other  synoptic  Gospels,  and  yet  it  beautifully
complements those works. The treasure of the Scriptures is a
true gift of the Holy Spirit to the Church.

Saint Luke is the Patron Saint of: Artists/Painters, Brewers,
Butchers, Notaries, Physicians/Surgeons

This  Sunday’s  Readings:  Wisdom  7:7–11;  Psalm
90:12–17; Hebrews 4:12–13; Mark 10:17–30

The  rich  young  man  in  today’s  Gospel  wanted  to
know what we all want to know—how to live in this
life  so  that  we  might  live  forever  in  the  world  to
come.  He  sought  what  today’s  Psalm  calls  “wisdom
of heart.”

He learns that the wisdom he seeks is not a program
of  works  to  be  performed  or  behaviours  to  be
avoided.  As  Jesus  tells  him,  observing  the
commandments  is  essential  to  walking  the  path  of
salvation—but it can only get us so far.

The Wisdom  of God  is  not  precepts,  but  a  person—
Jesus  Christ.  Jesus  is  the  Wisdom  whose  Spirit  was
granted to Solomon in today’s First Reading. Jesus is
the  Word  of  God  spoken  of  in  today’s  Epistle.  And
Jesus, as He reveals Himself to the rich man today, is
God.

In  Jesus  we  encounter  Wisdom,  the  living  and
effective Word of God. As He does with the rich man
today, He looks upon each of us with love. That look

of love, that loving gaze, is a personal invitation—to
give up everything to follow Him.

Nothing  is  concealed  from  His  gaze,  as  we  hear  in
the  Epistle.  In  His  fiery  eyes,  the  thoughts  of  our
hearts  are  exposed,  and  each  of  us  must  render  an
account of our lives (see Revelation 1:14).

We  must  have  the  attitude  of  Solomon,  preferring
Wisdom  to  all  else,  loving  Him  more  than  even  life
itself.  This  preference,  this  love,  requires  a  leap  of
faith. We will be persecuted for this faith, Jesus tells
His disciples today. But we must trust in His promise
—that all good things will come to us in His company.

What, then, are the “many possessions” that keep us
from  giving  ourselves  totally  to  God?  What  are  we
clinging  to—material  things,  comfort  zones,
relationships? What will it take for us to live fully for
Christ’s sake and the sake of the Gospel?

Let us pray for the wisdom to enter into the kingdom
of God. With the Psalmist, let us ask Him, “Teach us.”

“For Humans It Is Impossible, But Not For

God; For God All Things Are Possible”

Jesus

CATHOLIC ANSWERS

www.catholic.com

SHOULD I FINANCIALLY SUPPORT

A PROTESTANT CHURCH?

Question
May  or  should  Catholics  donate  to  a  nondenominational
church when that is the request in lieu of flowers?
Answer
I  infer  you’re  speaking  of  honouring  the  memory  of
someone  who  has  died  and  who  apparently  wasn’t
Catholic. Given that the Protestant church in question has
teaching at odds with Catholicism to one extent or another,
I would instead counsel you do one of three things:

1.  Give  to  a  non-religious  charity  your  friend/relative
supported, and let their family know that.
2.  Give  to  a  good  Catholic  cause  in  honor  of  your
friend/relative, in which you case you may not want to
let  the  family  know,  at  least  during  their  time  of
bereavement
3. Have a Mass or Masses offered for the repose of the
person’s  soul,  particularly  if  he  or  she  is  indeed  not
Catholic.

Regarding  the  first  option,  if  you’re  not  sure,  you  could
discretely  ask  someone  who  was  a  mutual  friend.
Regarding the third option, that might be your best choice,
and  all  concerned  may  one  day  be  very  grateful  for  your
consideration,  even  if  they  may  not  appreciate  it  at  the
moment.

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.

Body of Christ, save me.

Blood of Christ, inebriate me.

Water from the side of Christ, wash me.

Passion of Christ, strengthen me.

O good Jesus, hear me.

Within your wounds, hide me.

Let me never be separated from you.

From the malignant enemy, defend me.

In the hour of my death, call me,

And bid me come to you,

That with your saints I may praise you

Forever and ever. Amen.

LENT IS HERE!!!

When Is Ash Wednesday?—February 14

What is Ash Wednesday?

This day marks the beginning of Lent. We

attend Mass on this day and receive the

Ashes on the forehead as a sign of sorrow

for sin and as sign of our intention to

become more faithful.

What is Lent?

The penitential season of the Church’s

year. It is 40 days of preparation to renew

our Baptismal vows on Easter Sunday.

During this time we seek closer union with

the Lord through an increase of fasting,

prayer, and giving of alms (charitable

giving).

Lenten Fast & Abstinence

Catholics are obligated to Fast & Abstain

from meat on Ash Wednesday & Good

Friday.

The Fast on Ash Wednesday and Good

Friday.

The fast on Ash Wed and Good Friday

involves eating only one full meal. One or
two smaller meals may be taken on those
days, but may not total one full meal. No

eating between meals.

Abstinence on Ash Wednesday and Good

Friday

Abstinence on these days from meat can

include eggs or dairy products.

Age Requirements

"All Catholics at 15 are bound by the law of
abstinence; all adults are bound by the law

of fast up to the beginning of their 60

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 Feasts) in commemoration of

our Saviour’s death.
