(CCC 464, 461, 463, 443-445)
Galatians 4:4-5 “For today in the city of David, a Savior has been born for you who is
Messiah and Lord.”
“God sent His Son, born of a woman…” 14. Jesus is referred to in Scripture as the Word of God (John 1:1-3). Jesus Christ showed His perfect
love for us by dying on the cross and rising from the dead so that our sins could be forgiven and we
could be reunited with the Father. Moreover, the sacrifice of Christ on the cross for our sins opened
the gates of Heaven and made it possible for those who die in God’s grace and friendship to live
forever with Him in the perfect joy of Heaven. August 6th, 2009

15. Mary’s “yes” to God to be the Mother of Jesus made our salvation possible. Since Mary is the Mother of
Jesus and Jesus is God, we rightly call Mary the Mother of God.
(CCC 494-495, 497, 509, 485, 723)
Luke 1:28, 42, 43 (The Hail Mary) The angel greeted Mary, “Hail, full of grace! The Lord is
with you.” Elizabeth greeted Mary, “Most blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb. And how does this happen to me
that the Mother of my Lord (God) should come to me?” The Church added
Holy Mary, Mother of God from Elizabeth’s words to Mary because
Elizabeth’s greeting used the highest word for God, which is Lord. In the
rest of the prayer, we ask Mary for her intercession. (CCC 495, 969, 2683) 16. Jesus inaugurated the Church, the family of God by preaching the Good News, instituting the seven
sacraments and establishing the Church with a structure. The structure consisted of the Twelve Apostles
with Peter as the head. (CCC 763-766, 759, 1114)
Mark 3:1-19 Matthew 16:13-20 Jesus “appointed twelve [whom He also named Apostles] that they might
be with Him and He might send them forth to preach and to have authority
to drive out demons.”
Jesus said, “I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My
Church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.” 17. Jesus became man to show us who we are and how to act through His three offices of priest, prophet and
king. Jesus, the greatest Prophet was the teacher of God’s truth. As Priest, He offered Himself in loving
sacrifice to the Father. As King, He came to begin the Kingdom of God upon earth, making Himself the
servant of all, for He came “not to be served but to serve” (Matthew 20:28).
(CCC 783-786, 941-943, 1591, 1119)
18. Jesus suffered, died on the cross and rose on Easter Sunday for our redemption. Jesus did this to save us
from the power of sin and death and to re-unite us with Himself.
(CCC 612, 616, 619, 629, 639-640, 654)
John 20: 1-10 Jesus said, “It is finished and bowing His head, He handed over His
