Unformatted text preview: God will welcome us into Heaven, where we will be in
complete communion with Him. (CCC 1053)
27. If a person has not loved God in this life and dies with mortal sin on his soul, he will not want to be with
God. A soul in this state is in a place called Hell, which lasts forever. Hell is the “unquenchable fire,”
eternal punishment, and painful torment. (CCC 1056-1057, 1033-1037)
28. At the General Judgment, when Jesus Christ comes to judge the living and the dead, our bodies will
be restored to us in the form of a glorified body (resurrection of the body).
Last Judgment II. Sacraments – Celebration of the Christian Mystery
Section two focuses on the Sacraments. Sacraments communicate God’s grace, which unites us with Him and
strengthens us to remain in communion with Him. Through the Sacraments God communicates a share in His
Divine Life out of love for us. We are to approach the Sacraments with expectant faith and proper dispositions
so as to receive the grace that Christ intends to give. Sanctifying grace transforms our hearts and should lead
to a way of life that is lived in imitation of Christ.
In Eighth Grade, students are to review for greater understanding the following truths of Faith except where a
teaching is to be introduced, which will be bolded. Scriptures that are bolded are also new for this grade.
1. Our Lord Jesus Christ is High Priest and unique mediator between God and man. Priests and
bishops act in the person of Christ (in persona Christi) and give to us the sacraments. (CCC 1548) 2. Due to the effects of original sin, we have a weakened human nature and an inclination toward sin.
Therefore we need sanctifying grace to know, love and serve God. Sanctifying grace is a
participation in God’s Divine Life and is received in the Sacraments. (CCC 1116-117, 1129, 1263) 3. The seven Sacraments are efficacious signs instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by
which divine life is given to us. We need all seven of the Sacraments.
(CCC 1114-1116, 1123, 1127, 1129-1134)

Transfiguration of our Lord The seven Sacraments are words and actions instituted by Jesus.
Jesus gave them to the Church (the Family of God) beginning with Peter and the rest of the
Twelve Apostles. (cf. Mt 16:19ff, 18:18, 28:16-20)
Sacraments are efficacious in that they do what they say, not simply represent because
Jesus works through, with and in these actions, things and words (matter and form)
in the Sacraments we receive the grace of God’s life called sanctifying grace; we receive
the grace of God’s help at all other times called actual grace. Grace is necessary to be
freed from sin (salvation) and to grow in holiness (sanctification) Diocese of La Crosse Page 12 of 38 Grade 8
4. The Sacraments are our deepest encounters with Jesus on earth. Through the Sacraments we have
