 Amen, Amen I say to you, unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood, you do not have life within you.  John 6  His disciples left and walked away b/c Jesus was literal when saying this  We are standing on Calvary  Takes faith  Jesus’s body now glorifies is the one we receive in the Eucharist  We get a foretaste of what it is like to be resurrected when we receive the Eucharist  I Delivered to You What I Also Received  We have been left with the Church  Faith is hearing and seeing  The Word, once accepted, becomes a response, a confession of faith , which spreads to others and invites them  It is through an unbroken chain of witnesses that we come to see the face of Jesus  Faith’s past, that act of Jesus’ love which brought new life to the world, comes down to us through the memory of others-witnesses- and is kept alive in the one remembering subject which is the Church  The church is a Mother who teaches us to speak the language of faith  The love which is the Holy Spirit and which dwells in the Church unites every age and makes us contemporaries if Jesus, thus guiding us along our pilgrimage of faith  Sacraments and transmission of faith  It is through the apostolic Tradition preserved in the church with the assistance of the Holy Spirit that we enjoy a living contact with the foundational memory  IN this way, the church in her doctrine, life and worship, perpetuates and transmits to every generation all that she herself is all that she believes  What is communicated in the church, what is handed down in her living Tradition is the new light born of an encounter with the true God, a light which touches us at the core of our being and engages our minds, wills, and emotions, opening us to relationships lived in communion  Sacraments  Baptism  Initiation in the church- the Body of Christ  First, the name of the Trinity-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is invoked upon the catechumen. Thus, from the outset, a synthesis of the journey of faith is provided.  Immersion in water  Water is at once a symbol of death, inviting us to pass through self- conversion to a new and greater identity, and a symbol of life, of a womb in which we are reborn by following Christ in his new life  IN this way, baptism speaks to us if the incarnational structure of faith  Eucharist  Sacramental character of faith finds its highest expression  A precious nourishment for faith: an encounter with Christ truly present in the supreme act of his love, the life-giving gift of himself  Then these are the 4 elements which compromise the storehouse of memory which the Church hands down  The profession of faith  The celebration of the sacraments  Path of ten commandments  Prayer  Faith’s 2 dimensions  Dimension of history  Eucharist is an act of remembrance, a making present of the mystery in which the past, as an event of death and resurrection, demonstrates its ability to open up a future, to foreshadow ultimate fulfillment.  Dimension which leads from visible world to the invisible  Eucharist we learn to see the heights and depths of reality. The bread and wine are changed into the body and blood of Christ, who becomes present in his Passover to the Father: this movement draws us, body and soul, into the movement of all creation towards its fulfilment in God The Apostle Paul Saul from Tarsus Persecuted Christian until his conversion in which he became Paul Established churches especially for Gentiles 1 Corinthians Written between 53 & 55 AD Issues such as marriage, food sacrifices, etc. Ephesians Deutero-pauline Small emphasis on eschatology Many believe it to be written between 80-100 AD Chapter 2 talks about faith, works, and differences between Jesus and Gentiles Holy Spirit 1 Corinthians 12 Were all part of one body( Body of Christ) We receive spiritual gifts from the Holy Spirit Speaking in tongue (Acts) Knowledge, wisdom, healing and prophecy Problem was what gift was better; was one better than the other?  George Wiger  Catholic theologian and author  B.A from St. Mary’s Seminary and University, Baltimore  M.A from University of St. Michael’s College  Awarded 10 honorary doctorates  Prepared a major study of life, thought, and action of Pope John Paul 2  Truth of Catholicism, Chapter 3  Liberal and conservative titles do not adequately describe the church or the catholic people  Church is communion of believers in God  Mary should define the profile of the Church and she is an example of how men and women should live  How does the Church manifest God on Earth?  In community  Who?  Believers  Followers in Christ  Baptized Catholics  Clergy  Holy Spirit  Parishioners  God  Preaches the Word  A place of worship  Encourages service  Place where one receives sacraments  Helps us to see God  Vatican 2  Idea of people first  Made it accessible  Changed from all Latin  Priests faced the congregation  The Church’s job  Preaching  Distribute the sacraments  Eucharist  Serve the people  Caritas(help them)  Collectively and individually  Proclaiming the word of God  Evangelization  Decide on doctrinal matters  Clergy  People’s Job:  Spread the word  Evangelize  Apply learning and bring to the community  Practice what you preach  Best way to evangelize  Put into action  Imitate Christ  Visible vs. Invisible Church  Visible church: the people we see and think and the building we see on a daily basis  Invisible Church  St. Augustine’s City of God  Membership is eternal because God’s knowledge is eternal  People trying to be a saint Catholi cs Atheist; people of good will Muslims and Jews People Protestan Seeking ts
