sinners and forgave sinners. (CCC 548-549, 545) 2. A sacrament is a sacred sign instituted by Christ to give grace. We are very close to Jesus when we
receive the Sacraments. We need the Sacraments. God gives us grace in the Sacraments. Grace is a
share in God’s life. God gives grace to angels and to us. (CCC 1114, 1131, 1210-1212, 1265-1266) 3. Grace helps us to treat people the way God wants us to (to live by His Commandments) and to say
yes to God’s love. When we do something wrong, we ask God and the other person we have hurt or
disobeyed to forgive us. In turn, we should forgive others as God forgives us.
(CCC 1889, 2082, 2074-2075, 2838) 4. Sunday is the Lord’s Day. It is the day that Jesus rose from the dead and for this reason, we are to
attend Mass and devote time to family, leisure, rest and works of charity. At Mass, we pray to Jesus
and He blesses us. (CCC 2174-2176, 2184, 2172) 5. Jesus shows His love for us by giving Himself to us in the Holy Eucharist. (CCC 1337) 6. The bread and wine becomes the Body and Blood of Jesus when the priest prays Jesus’ words, “This is
My Body. . . This is My Blood. . .Do this in remembrance of Me.” The Eucharist (Holy Communion) is
no longer ordinary bread. (CCC 1352, 1353) 7. Students should know the names and meanings of the following sacred vessels and sacramentals:
tabernacle, holy water, chalice, paten, candle, altar, and crucifix. (CCC 1145-1148, 1182, 1383, 1668) 8. The following liturgical gestures are outward signs that reflect our inward love and respect for God:
genuflection, kneeling, Sign of the Cross, folding hands for prayer, blessing ourselves with Holy Water.
For example, we genuflect upon entering a Catholic Church as a sign of adoration because Jesus is truly
present in the tabernacle. (CCC 1153-1155, 1208) 9. Christmas celebrates Jesus’ birth. Advent is a time of preparation for Christmas. Easter celebrates
the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead. Lent is a time of preparation for the Resurrection.
