The Precepts of the Catholic Church

The Precepts of the Catholic Church are a description of the absolute minimum actions required of Catholics regarding the Church.

The Church uses these precepts to remind us that Christian life requires a commitment to prayer and active participation in the liturgy and sacraments. If we fall below this bare-minimum level, we can’t rightly consider ourselves to be in full communion with the Catholic Church.

Each of these precepts of the Catholic Church is a requirement.…

Brothers need teachers

Today a new First Degree member confided that while he took a private oath to pray the Rosary every day, he didn’t know how.  That’s an incredibly brave confession.  I admire his honesty and scruples to ask for help.  

Yes, he has the rosary wallet card.  So the words and diagrams are available. My first feeble response was that he should come to Mass 45 minutes early and participate in the Rosary to get the rhythm of prayers and that would help to learn them.

But, of course,…

The Crucifix at the Center of the Altar

The Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church asks the question: “What is the liturgy?” It answers thusly, “The liturgy is the celebration of the mystery of Christ and in particular His paschal mystery. Through the exercise of the priestly office of Jesus Christ, the liturgy manifests in signs and brings about the sanctification of humankind. The public worship which is due to God is offered by the Mystical Body of Christ, that is, by its head and by its members.” (Compendium…

Archbishop Fulton Sheen's Reflection on Calvary

Brothers, the following is a reflection by Archbishop Fulton Sheen on the Mass and the importance of our relationship to it, theologically.  The Archbishop uses very expressive language to expose a truth which we should all come to accept.  Namely, the action of the Last Supper is ratified not in the breaking of the bread alone, but rather in the sacrifice of Christ Jesus on Calvary, together in a selfsame sacrifice.  It is the re-presentation of that same sacrifice over and over, day after…
