God's Catholic Dogma
It is 100% certain you're headed for Hell  ...   for rejecting the Catholic Dogma  ...   Warning: There are no bishops or priests in these times
<< On this site ... you will discover how you are being sent into Hell forever ...  your willingness to be deceived is making you eternally culpable >>
 
1.   The Original Sin of Adam closed Heaven for all men (sanctifying grace was lost) ... Hell became the only possible destination for the immortal souls of men.
2.   God re-opened Heaven by founding the Catholic Church and re-introducing sanctifying grace to men's souls ... the same grace which Adam and Eve had lost.

                          We are currently in the Great Apostasy (world-wide rejection of God's Catholic Dogma), these warnings apply:
3.   Warning 1:  A non-Catholic anti-Christ cult (the vatican-2 heretic cult) took over all Catholic properties on 8 Dec 1965 ("v-2 council" close date).     [Section 12, 13]
4.   Warning 2:  No one Ordained those that you think are Priests ... all Bishops of the "v-2 council" were automatically excommunicated on 8 Dec 1965.  [Section 13.2]
5.   Warning 3:  Your fake "priests" turned you into heretics ... the stage shows are not Mass ... participation in the vatican-2 heresy excommunicates. [Section 13.2.2]
6.   Warning 4:  All those dressed up like Catholic bishops and priests are ... automatically excommunicated heretics against the Catholic Dogmas.          [Section 13.6]
                          Vatican-2-ists: You are excommunicated from the Catholic Church … Abjuration of heresy > Section 19.1

7.    One can still be Catholic and get to Heaven with a proper baptism in water [Section 7] ... believing the Dogmas ... and keeping free from mortal sin.  [Section 10.1]
8.    All grace, both actual and sanctifying grace, starts with God and comes into the world through the Blessed Virgin ... as Jesus Christ Himself did.       [Section 4, 4.4]
9a.  The Old Testament Israelite religion was the Catholic Faith unfulfilled ... the "judaism" fable started about 200 B.C.  Jesus Christ was not a jew. [Section 39.1, 39.4]
9b.  The "koran" is wrong ... Mohammed was not a prophet ... "allah" does not exist.  Mohammed and "islam" contradict 4,000 years of previous prophets. [Section 113]
10.  All heretics are excommunicated from Christianity ... and are headed for Hell ... with the world's pagans (those not properly baptized in water).       [Section 7.2, 8]

The Catholic Sacraments ... the only source of Sacramental Grace that leads to Salvation
(Salvation, being saved, means that your soul is in Heaven)
 
The only Sacrament available in these times is Water Baptism ... Baptism is the only Sacrament
that you must have to get to Heaven (a Necessity of Means). The other Sacraments are
Necessity of Precept (must go if available which they aren't in these times)

(Note: See Section 7.4 for the Catholic Doctrine ... on Necessity)

~     ~     ~

This Section is written in a manner for times when there were Catholic bishops and priests in the world ... which there are not any in these times.

Do not walk into any building with a Catholic sign out front, there are no Catholic sacraments in these formerly Catholic properties. They do not sacrifice or worship the Catholic God ... they pay homage to their idol, the vatican-2 "god".

Do not walk into these buildings for baptism of your infant children, infant baptisms are being falsified (made invalid) by falsification of intent and there is no such thing as a valid baptism for an adult into a heretic cult such as the vatican-2 cult -- see Sections 7 and 7.7 and note below.

~     ~     ~

When the vatican-2 heretic cult took over all Catholic buildings around the world on 8 December 1965 (the day that the "vatican-2 council" closed) ... those who were in the formerly Catholic hierarchy had their bodies and souls translated into the vatican-2 cult since they subscribed to the "council" and are hierarchically under the (now) non-Catholic Vatican. December 8, 1965 marks the date when Catholic jurisdiction disappeared from the world. Please see Section 13.6 of this site. This is all a punishment being allowed by the Catholic God for our sins and negligences.

You can still be fully Catholic and get to Heaven when the only Sacrament available is water baptism ...
There are two things necessary by a Necessity of Means (must have) to get to Heaven ... water baptism and believing the Catholic Faith (the Sources of Dogma). See Section 10.2 for Catholic teaching on what we are to do when Sacramental Confession is not available (such as now). See Section 7.4 for the Catholic teaching regarding necessity (means and precept).



Do not go to a Vatican-2 meeting hall to baptize your infant children ...
Baptisms are being falsified (made invalid) by falsifying the intent in the vatican-2 cult meeting halls (the buildings with the Catholic signs out front). The person doing the Baptism must have the intention to remit Original Sin for the baptism to be valid. Having the intention (for example) of "baptizing" the person into the community invalidates the "baptism".

Proof that this is going on in the buildings of the vatican-2 heresy is on Section 7.7 of this site. Perform the baptisms yourself following the directions on Section 7 of this site. Of course, there is no such thing as baptism of post age of reason persons into a heretic cult ("lutheran", "vatican-2", "baptist", "evangelical", etc.). An adult who looks like he is being baptized in a heretic meeting hall, leaves that building still in the state of Original Sin.

Council of Trent, Seventh Session, On the Sacraments in General, Canon 11, 1547 A.D. -- Ex-Cathedra Dogma >
"If any one saith, that, in ministers, when they effect, and confer the sacraments, there is not required the intention at least of doing what the Church does; let him be anathema."

Pope Alexander VIII, 1689-1691 A.D. >
"Baptism is valid when conferred by a minister who observes all the external rite and form of baptizing, but within his heart resolves, I do not intend what the Church does. - Condemned" (as error)

Do not go the vatican-2 heretic meeting halls for marriage ...
The vatican-2 anti-Christ, who is dressed like a Catholic priest, will lie to you about marriage and its Catholic obligations. He will try to get you into the mortal sin of committing "natural family planning" and will most likely recommend other soul damning contraception (besides "NFP"). Getting married in a heretic meeting hall of the Vatican-2 cult is displeasing to God.

All of the Catholic Sacraments are necessary by a Necessity of Precept except Baptism which is necesary by a Necessity of Means. Necessity of Precept means you must go to the (precept) sacrament if it is available to you, which they are not in these times because our formerly Catholic Churches have been taken over by the vatican-2 heretic cult and those dressed like priests and bishops are all excommunicated heretics. Since Water Baptism is necessary by a Necessity of Means ... you must have it to get to Heaven (see Section 7.2). Believing the Catholic Faith whole and inviolate is also necessary by a Necessity of Means to get to Heaven (you must have it). See Section 7.4 for more detail on the Catholic Doctrine on Necessity ... also see Sections 5, 5.1, and 9 of this site regarding the Faith as Necessity of Means.



The Seven Sacraments instituted by Jesus Christ, True God, True Man,
and Founder of the Catholic Church are:

Baptism
Through Baptism, our sins are washed away, Sanctifying Grace first enters our soul, and we are able to receive the other Sacraments.

Confirmation
Confirmation strenghthens our commitment to be loyal followers of Jesus Christ.

Confession
We should repeatedly use the Sacrament of Penance to ask Our Lord for forgiveness, and to receive the extra graces we need to resist temptation.

Holy Eucharist
The Holy Eucharist is the Sacrament in which Jesus Christ is really and physically present under the appearances of bread and wine.

Matrimony
Matrimony is the Sacrament made by Jesus Christ to sanctify (make holy) the lawful union of a Christian man and a Christian woman.

Holy Orders
Through Holy Orders, men receive the powers of the Catholic Priesthood.

Extreme Unction
Extreme Unction gives strength to both the body and the soul of the sick and dying.



The Sacrament of Baptism

Catholic writing of Saint John 3:5 >
"Amen, amen I say to thee, unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God."

Note: Please see Section 7.2 for the Ex-Cathedra Dogma addressing Water Baptism.

1. What is Baptism?
Baptism is the Sacrament which makes you a Christian and a member of the Catholic Church and gives you the right to receive the other Sacraments.

2. What does Baptism do to your soul?
a. It takes away all sin: Original Sin, plus mortal and venial sins.
"Do penance and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins." (Acts 2:38)
b. It puts Sanctifying grace into your soul for the first time.
c. It brings the Holy Ghost to dwell in your soul.
d. It makes you a member of the Catholic Church.
e. It enables you to receive the other Sacraments.

3. Why do you have to be baptized?
Because Jesus Christ said:
"Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." (John 3:5)

4. What kind of sin is it to delay your Baptism?
A serious (mortal) sin.
"Why tarriest thou? Rise up, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins." (Acts 22:16)

5. What do you have to do to be baptized?
a. Believe the basic tenets of the Faith (that which is in the Apostles Creed) and knowledge of basic Catholic prayers;
b. Give up all seriously sinful habits;
c. Have the right intention.
d. The "right intention" means that you wish to become a Catholic because the Catholic Church is the only Church.
Note: The Catholic Church has no buildings at this time, our formerly Catholic properties are under the control of the Vatican-2 jew-heretic cult.

6. Who gives Baptism?
Ordinarily, the priest, but anyone can baptize in an emergency.

7. How is Baptism given?
It is given by pouring water over the forehead of the person to be baptized and, while pouring the water, saying, "I baptize thee in the name of the father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 28:19), while having at least the minimum intention to do what the Church wants you to do by performing this sacramental act. Baptism can also be given by immersion or sprinkling, but in all cases the water has to flow over the head or forehead (not just the hair).

8. What are sponsors for?
Sponsors at Baptism are supposed to see that their godchildren stay faithful to their religious duties. A sponsor has to be a good Catholic.

9. Do babies have to be baptized?
Yes, because they have Original Sin on their souls, which means they have no Sanctifying Grace. See Section 7.2 of this site.

10. How soon should a baby be baptized?
Within two or three weeks of its birth. It is a mortal sin to delay the Baptism of a baby for a long time.

PRACTICAL POINTS

A. Make arrangements with your priest a week before the baby's Baptism. The baby's godfather and godmother should be good Catholics.

B. An expectant mother in a hospital should tell the doctors and nurses that she is a Catholic and that, if there is any danger to the life of the baby, they should send for a priest right away. In case of real emergency, somebody should baptize the baby, even in the womb, if necessary.

C. If there is a miscarriage, the whole substance from the womb should be put into water right away, and the words, "I baptize thee in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost", should be said by the one baptizing. It should be noted that the water has to flow over the skin of the fetus or embryo. Consequently, it will be necessary to break the protective membrane which encloses the body.

D. Babies who die without being baptized cannot go to Heaven because they die without Sanctifying Grace. God is not cruel or unjust in not allowing them to enter Heaven because Sanctifying Grace is a gift and no one has a right to a gift. Man does not have a natural right to Heaven, which is a supernatural end for man.

E. If your were baptized in a heretic meeting hall ("lutheran", "vatican-2", "baptist", "evangelical", etc.) under age 7, you will have to be conditionally re-baptized. The reason for this is because the heretics may have invalided the baptism by incorrect form, matter, or intent. Almost all heretic cults consider baptism merely a sort of initiation ritual or symbol that produced no effect in the soul ... this false intention invalidates the "baptism". The person baptizing must have the intention of remitting Original Sin for the baptism to be valid. Also, there is no thing as baptism into a heretic cult if the person is past the age of reason (7 years). A 15 year old in a heretic "lutheran" meeting hall undergoing what looks like baptism is in fact not being baptized ... Original Sin remains on the soul. See Sections 2.1 and 7 of this site.



The Sacrament of Confirmation

Catholic writing of Acts 8:17 >
"Then they laid their hands upon them, and they received the Holy Ghost."

1. What is Confirmation?
Confirmation is the Sacrament which gives you the strength to be a good Catholic.
This Sacrament completes and perfects the Christian life you begin at Baptism.

2. Who comes into your soul when you are confirmed?
The Holy Ghost, the Third Person of the Holy Trinity.
"Or know you not, that your members are the temple of the Holy Ghost?" (1 Corinthians 6:19)

3. What does Confirmation do to your soul?
a. Confirmation gives you more Sanctifying Grace ...
b. It gives you more strength to stay away from sin and lead a Christian life ...
c. It helps you to be a loyal and faithful follower of Jesus Christ ...
d. It gives you the strength to profess your Catholic Faith openly and not to hide it.

4. Can you get to Heaven without Confirmation?
Yes, but it is more difficult.

5. Is it a sin to neglect Confirmation?
Yes, it is a sin to neglect Confirmation.

6. Who gives Confirmation?
Usually a bishop.

7. What do you have to do to receive Confirmation worthily?
a. You have to be a baptized Catholic, and ...
b. Have no mortal sin on your soul.
c. You should also be well instructed in the Catholic religion.

8. Do you have to have a sponsor for Confirmation?
Yes, but not the same one you had for Baptism.

9. How many times can you be confirmed?
Only once.

10. Why do you take the name of a Saint at Baptism?
You take a Saint's name to have that Saint watch over you and to have someone to imitate.

11. What is expected of a confirmed Catholic?
A confirmed Catholic, by his prayers and words and good example, should try to lead others to the True Church.

12. How is Confirmation given?
In the traditional rite, the Bishop, holding his hands over those to be confirmed, prays for them and then makes the Sign of the Cross on the forehead of each one with the holy oil of Chrism. He then taps each person lightly on the cheek.

13. What words does the Bishop say while confirming?
He says: "I sign thee with the Sign of the Cross, and I confirm thee with the Chrism of salvation, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."

14. What is Holy Chrism?
A mixture of olive oil and balm, consecrated by the Bishop on Holy Thursday; it is a symbol of the strength received in Confirmation.

15. Why does the Bishop tap each one on the cheek?
The tap on the cheek is to remind those confirmed that they must be ready to suffer all things, even death, for the sake of Jesus Christ.
"Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake." (Saint Matthew 5:11)

PRACTICAL POINTS

A. Choose a good Catholic for your sponsor. You also have to select the name of another Saint for Confirmation (not the one you had for Baptism).

B. The Holy Ghost comes into your soul more fully when you are confirmed. He brings to your soul His Seven Gifts, which are: Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge, Counsel, Fortitude, Piety and Fear of the Lord.

C. A dying parishioner may receive Confirmation from his pastor if the Bishop cannot be reached in time.



The Sacrament of Confession

Catholic writing of Saint John 20:22-23 >
"When he had said this, he breathed on them; and he said to them: Receive ye the Holy Ghost. Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained."

Note: See Section 10.2 regarding the Catholic teaching on the forgiveness of sins when sacramental confession is not available ... such as times like these.

1. Why did God the Father send His Son into the world?
To save man from his sins.
"Thou shalt call His name Jesus. For He shall save His people from their sins." (Matthew 1:21)

2. Does Jesus Christ have the power to forgive sins?
Yes, Jesus has the power to forgive sin because He is God.

3. Did Jesus Christ forgive sins while on earth?
Yes, He forgave the sins of the paralyzed man (Luke 5:18-26), the woman taken in adultery (John 8:1-11), the sinful woman (Luke 7:39-50) and the good thief (Saint Luke 23:39-43).

4. Did Jesus Christ give anyone the power to forgive sin?
Yes, to His Apostles on Easter Sunday night.
"Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained." (John 20:23)

5. Did Jesus want His Apostles to hand down this power to others?
Yes, because He died to save all men from their sins.
"This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, Who will have all men to be saved." (1 Timothy 2:3-4)

6. How did the Apostles hand down this power to others?
By making other men bishops and priests.
After the Apostles died, the bishops have continued to hand down the power of forgiving sin, during the past 2,000 years, through the Sacrament of Holy Orders.

7. Who has the power to forgive sin today?
All bishops and priests of the Catholic Church can forgive sin.

8. What is the Sacrament of Penance?
Penance is the Sacrament by which the sins committed after Baptism are forgiven.

9. What do you have to do to have your sins forgiven?
You have to be truly sorry for them and confess them to a Catholic priest.
"He that hideth his sins, shall not prosper: but he that shall confess, and forsake them, shall obtain mercy." (Proverbs 28:13)

10. Why do you have to confess your sins to a priest?
This is the way Jesus Christ wants sin to be forgiven. Otherwise, Christ would not have given His priests the power to forgive sin.

11. Why does the priest have to know what sins you have committed?
He has to know whether he is to forgive your sins or "retain" them.
If you are truly sorry, he will grant you forgiveness (called "absolution"); if not, he must retain them (that is, refuse to give you absolution).

12. Does the priests only pray that your sins will be forgiven?
No, the priest, by the power given him, actually takes the sins off your soul (called "absolution").
"For what I have pardoned... I have done it in the person of Christ." (2 Corinthians 2:10)

13. Can you be sure that your sins are forgiven in Confession?
Yes, if you have properly confessed them and are sorry for them.
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all iniquity." (1 John 1:9)

14. What does Confession do for your soul?
Besides taking sin off your soul, Confession also ...
a. Puts Sanctifying Grace back into your soul, if you were in mortal sin
b. Makes the Grace grow, if you had only venial sins
c. Gives you extra strength to stay away from sin in the future.

15. Can all sins be forgiven in Confession?
Yes, if you are truly sorry for them.

16. What is meant by "being sorry for your sins"?
"Being sorry" means ...
a. That you wish you had not committed the sins
b. That you sincerely promise not to commit those sins again
c. That you promise to stay way from any person, place, or thing that easily leads you into sin.

17. What kind of sorrow do you have to have to be forgiven?
Religious sorrow, that is, you must be sorry because you dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of Hell (imperfect sorrow), and/or because you have offended the infinitely good God (perfect sorrow). Therefore, to have your sins forgiven, it is not enough to be sorry because your sins have caused you to lose your job or some money. The sorrow has to be religious. Sorrow for sin is called contrition. You do not have to feel the sorrow with your emotions.

18. Why do you not have to be afraid of Confession?
You do not have to be afraid because ...
a. You may go to any priest you want
b. In the confessional, a screen hides you from the priest
c. The priest is never allowed to tell anyone any sin he has ever heard in Confession. This secrecy is called the "Seal of Confession."

19. What sins do you have to confess?
All your mortal sins.

20. What kind of sin is it deliberately to omit telling a mortal sin in Confession?
A mortal sin of sacrilege. This is called making a bad Confession. To undo a bad Confession, you have to confess that you made a bad Confession, confess the omitted mortal sin(s), and confess any other mortal sins you have committed since then (including Communions received in the state of mortal sin).

21. What should you do if you forget to confess a mortal sin?
You must tell it in your next Confession and tell the priest that you forgot it. But the sin is forgiven and you may receive Communion in the meantime.

22. What do you do if you have no mortal sins to confess?
Tell your venial sins and/or mention some sin already told in a previous Confession.

23. How often do you have to go to Confession?
At least once a year (if you have committed a mortal sin).
If you ever commit a mortal sin, say the Act of Contrition right away and go to Confession as soon as possible.
If you have perfect contrition for the mortal sin and intend to confess it in Confession, God forgives you and takes away the sin right away, but you may not receive Holy Communion until you confess it in Confession.

24. How often does a good Catholic go to Confession?
Once a week, if possible, but at least once a month.
Remember that in Confession you receive grace from the Sacrament of Penance. Besides, in Confession you receive special helps to overcome the temptations that bother you most.

PRACTICAL POINTS

A. In Confession the eternal punishment (Hell) is taken away, but all of the temporal punishment due to your sins is not always taken away. "Temporal punishment" means that, even though all your sins are forgiven through the Sacrament of Penance, God still requires that you be punished for your sins, either in this life or in Purgatory. So, Confession does not make sinning easier. One of the chief ways by which you can make up for your sins is by gaining indulgences.

B. If you are in danger of death and cannot go to Confession right away, be sure to make an act of perfect contrition; say the Act of Contrition, or simply tell God you are sorry for all your sins because they offend Him, Who is all good, and beg His mercy. If somebody else (whether Catholic or not) is in danger of death, it is a great act of charity to help him to be sorry for offending God and to beg God's mercy.

C. There does not exist on earth a punishment great enough to punish sufficiently the grave sin of sacrilegious Communion (Our Lord to St. Bridget of Sweden + 1373).



The Sacrament of Holy Eucharist (Holy Communion)

Catholic writing of Saint John 6:56-57 >
"For my flesh is meat indeed: and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, abideth in me, and I in him."

Note: When Catholic Mass is available to us we are obligated to go. Mass is not available in these times. See Section 7.4 regarding necessity of means and necessity of precept.

JESUS CHRIST INSTITUTES THE EUCHARIST

"And whilst they were at supper, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke: and gave to His disciples, and said: Take ye, and eat. This is My body. And taking the chalice, He gave thanks, and gave to them, saying: Drink ye all of this. For this is My blood of the new testament, which shall be shed for many unto the remission of sins." (Matthew 26:26-28)

1. What is the Holy Eucharist?
The Holy Eucharist is the Sacrament in which Jesus Christ is really and physically present under the appearances of bread and wine.
"The chalice of benediction, which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? And the bread, which we break, is it not the partaking of the body of the Lord?" (1 Corinthians 10:16)

2. Why is it also called "the Blessed Sacrament"?
Because it is the most blessed of all the Sacraments, since it is Jesus Christ Himself.

3. When did Jesus make this Sacrament?
At the Last Supper, on the night before He died.

4. How could Jesus change bread and wine into His Body and Blood?
Jesus Christ is God and therefore can do anything.

5. Did the bread and wine change their appearance?
No, the appearances of the bread and wine (taste, smell, color, size, shape, weight) did not change, even though the bread and wine were actually changed into the Body and Blood of Jesus. (see: miracles of the Eucharist on the web)
The entire substance of the bread and wine are changed into the substance of the Body and Blood of Jesus; thus the bread and wine no longer exist. This change is called Transubstantiation.

6. Are both the Body and Blood of Christ present under the appearances of bread alone?
Yes, it is the living Christ who is present; that is, His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity are present both under the appearance of bread and under the appearance of wine.

7. Did Jesus give anyone the power of changing bread and wine into His Body and Blood?
Yes, to His twelve Apostles at the Last Supper, when He told them, "Do this for a commemoration of me."

8. Did Jesus ordain that His Apostles hand this power down to others?
Yes, because He wanted all men to eat His Flesh and drink His Blood.
"Amen, amen, I say to you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, you shall not have life in you." (John 6:54) (Here, "Life" means Sanctifying Grace.)

9. How did the Apostles hand down this power?
They handed it down by making other men priests and bishops through the Sacrament of Holy Orders.

10. When does the priest change bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ?
At Mass, when he says, "This is My Body," and "This is the chalice of My Blood..."

11. Where is the Blessed Sacrament kept?
In a little safe (called a tabernacle) on the altar.
"And my tabernacle shall be with them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people." (Ezechiel 37:27)

12. What is Holy Communion?
Receiving the Body and Blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.

13. What is necessary to receive Holy Communion worthily?
a. You have to be a baptized Catholic...
b. Have no mortal sin on your soul...
c. Be fasting.

14. Do you have to go to Confession first every time you receive Communion?
No, unless you have mortal sin on your soul.

15. What kind of sin is it to receive Communion unworthily?
To do so knowingly and willingly is a mortal sin called a sacrilege.

16. What does "fasting" mean?
"Fasting" means that, for one hour before receiving Communion, you have to stop eating solid food and drinking all liquids except water.
You may take water, and if sick, medicine any time before receiving. You must stop chewing gum at least one hour before. Until the 1950s, the Church required fasting from midnight before Communion; this rule was later shortened to three hours for food and one hour for liquids (with water being allowed at any time); then it was changed to one hour for food and drink, except water. It is very praiseworthy to continue observing the traditional fast either from midnight or for three hours.

17. How often do you have to receive Communion?
At least once a year, during the Easter Season, that is, any time from the 6th Sunday before Easter to the 8th Sunday after Easter. This is called your Easter Duty. The 6th Sunday before Easter is called the First Sunday of Lent; the 8th Sunday after Easter is called Trinity Sunday.

18. What kind of sin is it to miss your Easter Duty?
A mortal sin.

19. How often does a good Catholic receive Communion?
A good Catholic receives Communion every Sunday, or every day, if possible, but only once on the same day.

20 What does Holy communion do for your soul?
It makes the Sanctifying Grace in your soul grow.
"Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, you shall not have life in you." (John 6:54)

21. What else does Communion do for you?
a. Communion unites you with Jesus.
"He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, abideth in Me and I in him." (Saint John 6:57)
b. It is food for your soul, to help you love God and obey His laws.
"Give us this day our daily bread." (Luke 11:3)
c. It is a promise of your resurrection and future glory in Heaven.
"He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day." (John 6:55)
d. It weakens your sinful inclinations.

PRACTICAL POINTS

A. Ordinarily, you receive communion during Mass. However, the priest may bring you Communion when you are sick at home or in the hospital.

B. Communion is called Viaticum when received when a person is in danger of death.

C. After receiving Communion, you should spend some time praying to Our Lord, adoring Him, thanking Him, loving Him, and asking His help.

D. You are not forbidden to receive Communion with venial sins on your soul, but you are advised to recite the Confiteor or the Act of Contrition before receiving.



The Sacrament of Matrimony

Catholic writing of Ephesians 5:21-23 >
"Being subject one to another, in the fear of Christ. Let women be subject to their husbands, as to the Lord: Because the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is the head of the church. He is the saviour of his body."

Note: Do not go to the Vatican-2 meeting halls for marriage, it will not be a Catholic sacramental marriage since the Vatican-2 jew-heretic cult is not the Catholic Church. The lying Vatican-2 group leader (who is dressed like a Catholic priest) will work for your damnation by giving you false teaching about marriage ... he will try to get you into Hell by encouraging the mortal sin of "natural family planning".

1. What is the Sacrament of Matrimony?
Matrimony is the Sacrament made by Jesus Christ to sanctify (make holy) the lawful union of a Christian man and a Christian woman; the word Christian means Catholic, only Catholics are Christians. Protestants are heretics but their marriage is valid and cannot be broken.

2. Was marriage always a Sacrament?
No, marriage, although always a sacred union of man and woman, was raised to the dignity of a Sacrament by Jesus Christ.

3. What does this Sacrament do for a couple?
a. It unites them in an indissoluble (unbreakable) union until death.
b. It makes Sanctifying Grace grow in their souls.
c. It gives them special helps to perform their duties as married people and to overcome the difficulties that may come into their married life.

4. Who may receive the Sacrament of Matrimony?
Only those who have been baptized and are free to marry.

5. What is necessary to receive this Sacrament worthily?
You have to be free of mortal sin.

6. What kind of sin is it to receive this Sacrament unworthily?
A mortal sin of sacrilege. However, the marriage is valid.

7. Do Catholics have to be married at Mass?
No, but it is certainly fitting that they do so.
The special Mass for a Catholic wedding is called the Nuptial Mass. Traditionally, this Mass was not celebrated for a mixed marriage, nor during Lent or Advent. But now it may be celebrated if the couple desires it. Also, it can now be said during Lent and Advent, save from Holy Thursday through Easter Sunday.

8. What should a Catholic do who wants to marry?
Preparations for the wedding should be made with one of the priests in the bride's parish several months in advance. This time requirement varies from diocese to diocese.

9. What is the only way a Catholic can be married?
Only in the presence of a Catholic priest and two witnesses.
Occasionally other arrangements can be made, but this requires a dispensation in advance from the local bishop and can be done only for a sufficiently grave reason.

10. What happens if a Catholic is not married by a priest?
A Catholic who goes through a marriage ceremony before anyone other than a Catholic priest is not married. Such a couple has to separate or have the marriage made valid.

11. What if a Catholic goes through a marriage ceremony before a protestant heretic group leader?
Such a person is not married and is guilty of mortal sin.
Traditionally this sin also carried the penalty of automatic excommunication. This meant that such a person could not receive any of the Sacraments nor have a Catholic funeral. However, although this penalty no longer applies, a Catholic who goes through a marriage ceremony outside the Catholic Church still commits a grave sin.

12. May a Catholic marry a non-Catholic?
No, except for a very serious reason.
A marriage between a Catholic and a non-Catholic is called a mixed marriage.

13. Why does the Church forbid mixed marriages?
Because of the danger of loss of faith on the part of the Catholic and of the children.
The different religious beliefs of the parents cause serious arguments on such important matters as divorce, birth control, Sunday Mass, eating meat on Friday, and the Catholic education of the children.

14. Were mixed marriages forbidden in the Bible?
Yes, mixed marriages were strictly forbidden by God.
"Neither shalt thou make marriages with them. Thou shalt not give thy daughter to his son, nor take his daughter for thy son: For she will turn away thy son from following Me, that he may rather serve strange gods, and the wrath of the Lord will be kindled, and will quickly destroy thee." (Deuteronomy 7:3-4)

15. Who is the only one who can allow a mixed marriage?
Only the bishop, and he can give permission only for a serious reason.

16. In a mixed marriage, what must the Catholic promise?
a. The Catholic must sign promises: To remain a Catholic.
b. To see to it that the children are baptized and are brought up as Catholics.
c. Also, the Catholic party must inform the non-Catholic of these promises.

17. Are the marriages of non-Catholics valid?
Yes, provided all the laws of God concerning marriage are observed, the marriages of non-Catholics among themselves are valid and therefore cannot be broken.

PRACTICAL POINTS

It is not the priest who gives the Sacrament of Matrimony; he is only the chief witness. The bride and groom give it to each other. The first gift they give one another is an increase of God's life -- Sanctifying Grace. It is fitting indeed that this giving be done at Mass.

Couples should remember that, through the Sacrament of Matrimony, they have the right to special helps to aid them in their problems. God gives them, as it were, a spiritual bank account on which they may draw in times of difficulty.



The Sacrament of Holy Orders (Priesthood)

Catholic writing of Hebrews 4:14, 5:1 >
"Having therefore a great high priest that hath passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God: let us hold fast our confession. (...) For every high priest taken from among men, is ordained for men in the things that appertain to God, that he may offer up gifts and sacrifices for sins."

Note: Re-instituting the Catholic Papacy and priesthood is not possible since Divine public revelation ended in 99 A.D. with the death of Saint John. The Dogma states that when Christ returns it will be only for the judgement ... not for re-instituting the priesthood.

JESUS CHRIST COMMISSIONS HIS FIRST PRIESTS

"And Jesus coming, spoke to them, saying: 'All power is given to Me in Heaven and in earth. Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world." (Matthew 28:18-20)

1. What did Jesus do to continue His work on earth?
To make sure that His work be continued, Jesus established the Catholic Priesthood, through the Sacrament of Holy Orders.

2. What is the Sacrament of Holy Orders?
Holy Orders is the Sacrament which gives a man the powers of the Catholic Priesthood.

3. In general, what is a priest?
A man who offers sacrifices to God for the sins of the people.

4. Was Jesus a priest?
Yes, Jesus was and is, the Great High Priest of the Catholic Church which He founded.
"Wherefore it behoved Him in all things to be made like unto His brethren, that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest before God, that He might be a propitiation for the sins of the people." (Hebrews 2:17)

5. Who were the first Catholic priests?
The twelve Apostles, who were ordained to the priesthood by Jesus Christ Himself.

6. When did Jesus make the twelve Apostles priests?
At the Last Supper, on the night before He died, when He gave them the power to change bread and wine into His Body and Blood.
"Do this for a commemoration of me." (Saint Luke 22:19)

7. Did the Apostles make other men priests?
Yes, for example, Paul, Barnabas, Timothy, Titus, and Matthias.
See Acts 13:3, 14:22, 1:24-26, and Titus 1:5.

8. How did the Apostles ordain other men priests?
By praying for them and imposing hands on them.
"Then they, fasting and praying, and imposing their hands upon them, sent them away." (Acts 13:3)

9. After the Apostles died, how were the powers of the priesthood handed down?
Before they died, the Apostles made other men bishops, who in turn made other men bishops, and in this way the powers of the priesthood have been handed down during the past 2000 years.

10. How are the powers of the priesthood handed down today?
Today the bishops hand down the powers of the priesthood just as the Apostles did - by praying over and imposing hands on the candidates for priesthood.

11. What are the chief powers of the priesthood?
They are ...
a. To offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, which includes the power to change bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ and...
b. To forgive sins.
c. Other powers of the priesthood are to preach with authority, administer other Sacraments and to bless people and objects.

12. Where does the authority of the priesthood come from?
From Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity.
"He that heareth you, heareth Me; and he that despiseth you, despiseth Me; and he that despiseth Me, despiseth Him that sent Me." (Luke 10:16)

13. Who can give the Sacrament of Holy Orders?
Only a bishop.
"For this cause I left thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and shouldest ordain priests in every city, as I also appointed thee." (Titus 1:5)

14. What is necessary to become a priest?
To become a priest, a man has to study for about 6 years in a special school called a seminary and be approved by his bishop as to his learning, health, morals, and character.
"Impose not hands lightly upon any man." (1 Timothy 5:22)

17. Why do priests not get married?
They do not marry because ...
a. The single life is a holier life, recommended by Christ;
b. Being single, they can give themselves entirely to God and the care of the people.
"He that is without a wife, is solicitous for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please God. But he that is with a wife, is solicitous for the things of the world, how he may please his wife: and he is divided." (1 Corinthians 7:32-33)

18. Why is the priest called "Father"?
Because he gives the life of grace to his spiritual children, just as a father gives physical life to his children.
"I write not these things to confound you; but that I admonish you as my dearest children. For if you have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet not many fathers. For in Christ Jesus, by the gospel, I have begotten you." (1 Corinthians 4:14-15)

VARIOUS TITLES IN THE CHURCH

The Sacrament of Extreme Unction

Catholic writing of James 5:14-15 >
"Is any man sick among you? Let him bring in the priests of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith shall save the sick man: and the Lord shall raise him up: and if he be in sins, they shall be forgiven him."

1. What is the Sacrament of Extreme Unction?
Extreme Unction is the Sacrament which gives health and strength to the soul and sometimes to the body to persons who are in danger of death.
The words "Extreme Unction" mean "last anointing." In Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Orders, the body is anointed with holy oil.
In the Sacrament of Extreme Unction the body is anointed for the last time. Hence the name.

2. How is Extreme Unction given?
After praying over the sick person, the priest anoints (makes the Sign of the Cross with the Holy Oil) on the person's eyes, ears, nostrils, lips, hands, and feet.

3. What does the priest say while anointing the sick person?
He says: "Through this holy anointing, and by His most tender mercy, may the Lord pardon you what sins you have committed by sight (hearing, speech, and so on)."

4. What does Extreme Unction do for your soul?
The Sacrament of Extreme Unction ...
a. Gives you more Sanctifying Grace;
b. Helps you to bear your sufferings;
c. Strengthens you against the temptations of the devil;
d. Sometimes gives back your health;
e. Takes away temporal punishment due to sin;
f. Prepares you for immediate entry into Heaven.

5. Does Extreme Unction take away sin?
Extreme Unction takes away ...
a. All your venial sins
b. even your mortal sins if you are unable to confess them but are truly sorry for them.

6. Who can give Extreme Unction?
Only a Catholic priest.

7. Who can receive Extreme Unction?
Any Catholic in danger of death from sickness, old age or accident not only can, but should receive Extreme Unction. However, it may not be given to infants or to anyone who has never had the use of reason.

8. When should you receive Extreme Unction?
Whenever the sickness or accident is so serious that it could cause death.
Examples: Pneumonia, heart attack, a serious car accident.

9. How often can you receive Extreme Unction?
Only once in the same danger of death. However, if a new danger arises, you can receive it again.

10. What should be done in case of sudden death?
Send for a priest right away, because Extreme Unction may be given even after a person is apparently dead.
Even when a person displays all the usual manifestations of death, the soul may still not have departed from the body. Therefore, the Church allows Extreme Unction to be administered after "death" has occurred.

11. Why is it wrong to wait until the sick person is unconscious before sending for the priest?
Because the sick person must be conscious in order to benefit the most from the Sacrament.

12. What kind of sin is it to deprive a sick person of Extreme Unction?
A mortal sin.
It often happens that a convert is the only Catholic in a family. If this is your case, therefore, you should tell your relatives to send for the priest if you are ever in danger of death.

13. What should be done before the priest comes to anoint the sick person?
Spread a white cloth on a table beside the bed. Then put a crucifix, two blessed candles, a bottle of holy water, a glass of drinking water, a spoon and some cotton on the table. A member of the family, carrying a lighted candle, should meet the priest at the door and lead him to the sickroom.
No one should talk to the priest, for he probably has the Holy Eucharist with him. Everyone should kneel down when he enters.
If you do not have the above items, call the priest anyway.

14. What does the priest do when he enters the sickroom?
First, he says some prayers, sprinkles the sick person with holy water and hears his Confession.
Then he gives him Holy Communion and Extreme Unction, and finally, the Last Blessing.
All of these together are called the Last Sacraments or Last Rites of the Church. (Everyone else leaves the room while the priest hears the sick person's Confession.)

PRACTICAL POINTS

1. Do not worry that a sick person will be frightened by the priest, because Catholics should always be glad to see the priest in order to receive the comforts that only the Sacraments can bring.

2. If you are going to be a patient in a non-Catholic hospital, tell your parish priest which one you are going to and how long you expect to be there. Also, tell the doctors and nurses that you are Catholic and that they should send for a priest if you become critical or serious.

3. Catholics should be buried in Catholic cemeteries. Tell your relatives to see your parish priest about your funeral. Or, make the arrangements yourself ahead of time.

4. Catholics are forbidden to have their bodies cremated, except in case of a serious public necessity. The Catholic burial service is denied those who give orders to have their bodies cremated.

All grace starts with God, goes to the hands of the Blessed Virgin, and then into the world. God (Grace Himself) came into the world
by the Blessed Virgin, God never changes, all grace follows the same path to this day and until the end of the world.
