1 Celebrating the Paschal Mystery of Christ Liturgy Sacraments Chapter 14 US Catechism of the Catholic Church
2 What is Liturgy? CCC 1069 The word liturgy (Greek term liturgia) originally meant a public work or a service in the name of/on behalf of the people. In Christian tradition it means the participation of the People of God in the work of God. Through the liturgy, Christ, our redeemer and high priest, continues the work of our redemption in, with, and through his Church. Every liturgical celebration is an action of Christ the High Priest and of his Mystical Body, which is the Church. It is Holy Work and it requires the participation of the People of God in the work of God. Christ as eternal high priest, pleads continuously on our behalf in the presence of the Father ** Liturgy* is all rites and ceremonies that constitute the Church s corporate worship: the Mass, celebration of the other sacraments, the Liturgy of the Hours, Rite of Christian Initiation, and blessings. Chief liturgical actions are the Mass/Sacraments. Notes: (1) This is different form private worship like the rosary, novenas, prayers to the Sacred Heart, or prayers to the saints (2) Because the Eucharist is the preeminent act of worship, people often mean the Mass when they say Liturgy.
3 Liturgy Celebrates the Paschal Mystery The Church celebrates in the liturgy above all the Paschal Mystery by which Christ accomplished the work of our salvation. CCC 1067 Paschal Mystery?: Christ s work of redemption accomplished principally by his Passion, death, Resurrection and glorious Ascension, whereby dying he destroyed our death, rising he resorted our life. Through liturgy, Christ continues the work of Redemption in our midst. Paschal mystery and Christ are present in His church.* Jesus death and resurrection become present to us and effective for us in the liturgical life of the Church. Read CCC 1085** Paschal Mystery transcends all time.
4 Heavenly Liturgy There is another reality happening in Heaven to which the liturgy of the Church is united: Jesus standing before the Father in Heaven offers himself eternally. Jesus is not alone: We are united with the great multitude of Heaven worshipping the Lamb of God (Rv 7:9-12) (Read)* In liturgy, we get a taste of heaven because divine things are happening.
5 Christ, the Church, & the Sacraments Christ is always present in His Church, especially in her liturgical celebrations. He is present in the sacrifice of the Mass, not only in the person of His minister, but especially under the Eucharistic species. By His power He is presence in the sacraments, so that when a man baptizes it is really Christ Himself who baptizes. He is present in His word, since it is He Himself who speaks when the holy scriptures are read in the Church. He is present, lastly, when the Church prays and sings, for He promised: Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them (Mt. 18:20). (Vatican II, Sacrosanctum Concilium, 7)* What was visible in our Savior has passed over into his mysteries (sacraments) ** (St. Leo the Great, d. 461) The actions of Christ s life are the foundations of the sacraments. Jesus used signs of His presence in ministry during His life: water, bread and wine, touching, spittle, mud, etc. and the Apostles followed His example (Examples ***) Christ has entrusted the sacramental mysteries to the Church and they are dispensed by his ministers**** They are from her in that they are actions of Christ s mystical body, the Church They are for her in that they build and sanctify the Church*****
6 The Sacraments The whole liturgical life of the Church revolves round the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments. (CCC 1113) Sacraments are efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the church by which divine life (grace) is dispensed to us. (CCC 1131) Efficacious - Effective. They effect us. The Sacraments DO what they symbolize. When sacramental signs are celebrated, they reveal and make present the reality they signify because Jesus Christ is at work in them. Example: In baptism, the washing with water and the words bring about the cleansing of the soul from original and personal sin. Entrusted to the Church*
7 The Sacraments There are a total of seven sacraments Baptism Confirmation Eucharist Penance Anointing of the Sick Holy Orders Marriage
8 The Seven Sacraments There are different ways to categorize the 7 sacraments; one way is by looking at what they do Sacraments of initiation Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist Sacraments of healing Penance, Anointing of the Sick Sacraments of vocation Holy Orders, Marriage
9 A sacrament is an outward sign instituted by Christ to give grace Outward sign Form (words) and matter (sacred action) Instituted by Christ Scriptural foundation To give grace Effect of the sacrament
10 Sacrament is: An Outward Sign* Every sacrament deploys the use of sensible things which constitutes its outward sign These signs and symbols come from creation (water, bread, wine, fire), social life (washing, anointing), and the history of salvation (sacrifices, laying on of hands) There are two inseparable aspects to the outward sign: matter and form Matter (actions)* The concrete elements and actions necessary to bring the sacrament about, e.g. poring of water, anointing with oil, laying on of hands Form (words) The words necessary to specify the meaning of the sacrament The outward signs bring about what they signify Example: in baptism the washing with water and the words bring about the cleansing of the soul from original and personal sin
11 Sacrament is Instituted by Christ Instituted by Christ - Given importance by Christ * All are referenced in Scripture. (next page)
12 INSTITUTED BY CHRIST.. BAPTISM IN SCRIPTURE Matthew 28:19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit. Matthew 3:11; John 3:5; Galatians 3:25-27; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Acts 2:37-38; Acts 10:44-47; Titus 3:5; Acts 8:11-13; 1 Peter 3:20-21; Romans 6:3-4; Colossians 2:12 CONFIRMATION IN SCRIPTURE Acts 8:14-18 Then they laid hands on them and they received the holy Spirit. When Simon saw that the Spirit was conferred by the laying on of the apostles' hands... 2 Corinthians 1:21-22; Acts 19:1-6; Eph 1:13; Heb 6:2 CONFESSION IN SCRIPTURE Matthew 18:18 Amen, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall Be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth Shall be loosed in heaven. John 20:23; Mt 9:2-8; James 5:14
13 EUCHARIST IN SCRIPTURE Mark 14:22-24 While they were eating, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them, and said, "Take it; this is my body." Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, and they all drank from it. He said to them, "This is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed for many. 1 Corinthians 11:23-29; Matthew 26:26-28; Luke 22:15-20; John 6:35-71; 1 Corinthians 10:16 MARRIAGE IN SCRIPTURE Genesis 1:27-28 God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed them, saying: "Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it." Genesis 2:18-24; Matthew 19:3-9; John 2:1-11; Ephesians 5:21-32
14 HOLY ORDERS IN SCRIPTURE Acts 14:23 They appointed presbyters for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, commended them to the Lord in whom they had put their faith Acts 6:3-6; Acts 13:2-3; 1 Tim. 3:1; 1 Tim. 3:8-9; 1 Tim. 4:14; 1 Tim. 4:16; 1 Tim. 5:17-19; 1 Tim. 5:22. ANOINTING OF SICK IN SCRIPTURE Mark 6:13 They (the Twelve) drove out many demons, and they anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them James 5:14-15; Jn 20:23; Mt 16:18-19
15 A Sacrament purpose is To Give Grace Sacramental grace is a grace of the Holy Spirit, given by Christ, that is proper to each sacrament Each sacrament has unique effects and gifts* The Sacraments also give (or increase) sanctifying grace and many actual graces Sanctifying grace God s life within us Actual grace gifts for specific actions and circumstances**
16 Ex Opere Operato* The Sacraments are effective ex opere operato, that is, by the very fact that the sacramental action is performed This is the case since it is Christ who acts in the sacraments and communicates the grace they signify Thus, the efficacy of the sacraments do not depend upon the personal holiness of the minister** Yet, the fruits of the sacraments do depend on the dispositions of the one who receives them***
17 Sacramental Character Sacramental character - is a spiritual seal which confers an indelible (permanent) mark on the soul The three sacraments which bestow a sacramental character are: Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Orders Since this character is permanent these sacraments can only be received once
