Quote of the Week
The Eucharist creates communion and fosters communion. Saint Paul wrote to the faithful of Corinth explaining how their divisions, reflected in their Eucharistic gatherings, contradicted what they were celebrating, the Lord's Supper. The Apostle then urged them to reflect on the true reality of the
Eucharist in order to return to the spirit of fraternal communion (cf. 1 Cor 11:17- 34). Saint Augustine effectively echoed this call when, in recalling the Apostle's words:
“You are the body of Christ and individually members of it” (1 Cor 12: 27), he went on to say: “If you are his body and members of him, then you will find set on the Lord's table your own mystery. Yes, you receive your own mystery”.
And from this observation he concludes: “Christ the Lord... hallowed at his table the mystery of our peace and unity. Whoever receives the mystery of unity without preserving the bonds of peace receives not a mystery for his benefit but evidence against himself”.
-St. John Paul II, Ecclesia de Eucaristia
[Fasting] means special moderation in the consumption of food except for what is necessary to maintain one's strength. This traditional form of penance has not lost its meaning; indeed, perhaps it ought to be rediscovered, especially in those parts of the world and in those circumstances where not only is there food in plenty but where one even comes across illnesses from overeating.
Penitential fasting is obviously something very different from a therapeutic diet, but in its own way it can be considered therapy for the soul. In fact practiced as a sign of conversion, it helps one in the interior effort of listening to God. Fasting is to reaffirm to oneself what Jesus answered Satan when he tempted him at the end of his 40 days of fasting in the wilderness: "Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God" (Mt 4:4).
Today, especially in affluent societies, it is difficult to grasp the meaning of these Gospel words. Consumerism, instead of satisfying needs, constantly creates new ones, often generating excessive activism. Everything seems necessary and urgent and one risks not even finding the time to be alone with oneself for a while.
St Augustine's warning is more timely than ever. "Enter again into yourself." Yes, we must enter again into ourselves if we want to find ourselves. Not only our spiritual life is at stake but indeed our personal, family and social equilibrium itself.
One of the meanings of penitential fasting is to help us recover an interior life. The effort of moderation in food also extends to other things that are not necessary, and this is a great help to the spiritual life. Moderation, recollection and prayer go hand in hand.
This principle can be appropriately applied to the mass media. Their usefulness is indisputable, but they must not become the "masters" of our life. In how many families does television seem to replace personal conversation rather than to facilitate it! A certain "fasting" also in this area can be healthy, both for devoting more time to reflection and prayer, and for fostering human relations.
-St. John Paul II, Angelus address, March 10, 1997
This week we continue our look at the “precepts of the Church”, the “very necessary minimum in the spirit of prayer and moral effort, in the growth in love of God and neighbor” for us as Catholics.
The first precept is “You shall attend Mass on Sundays and on holy days of obligation and rest from servile labor on those days”
This first precept has two parts. The first concerns weekly Mass attendance. The second deals with resting from work.
Why do we have this requirement of attendance at Church on Sundays? The very fact that we have this question and that we need such a law tells us that we are in some trouble.
While our baptism is what makes us Christian, our living it out by participating at Mass was the reason for the baptism in the first place! In baptism, we becomes members of the Body of Christ. Sunday Mass is what members of the Body of Christ do! At Sunday Mass we offer ourselves, in union with Christ’s sacrifice, for ourselves and for the world, in thanksgiving for what God has done for us in Christ. If baptism makes you Catholic, Mass is you “being” Catholic, acting it out in practice. To want to be Catholic while separating yourself unnecessarily from the gathered Body is a contradiction in terms. God didn’t just come to save us and unite us with Him individually– he came to reunite the broken human family– and He does that through his Church.
Holy Days of Obligation are special feast days throughout the Church’s year that we believe are important to celebrate as a gathered community. They usually focus on an important doctrine or event in the history of salvation and function as a way to build up our community and our identity as Catholics. If you find them burdensome, remember that universal law has 10 Holy Days. In the US, we only have 7, and 2 have been transferred to Sunday in most of the country (Ascension and Corpus Christi). That leaves 5 (Christmas, Mary Mother of God, Immaculate Conception, Assumption, All Saints).
What about the resting from labor? We know that some people need to work, even on Sundays (though we should make some attempt to be able to rest on Sunday). To the extent that we are able, however, we must be intentional about resting from unnecessary labor. We are to “refrain from engaging in work or activities that hinder the worship owed to God, the joy proper to the Lord’s Day, the performance of the works of mercy, and the appropriate relaxation of mind and body” (CCC 2185). Family needs, social service, poverty, can excuse us from this. On the other hand, those of us who have the leisure to be able to rest on Sunday have an obligation to make sure that we do not make “unnecessary demands on others that would hinder them from observing the Lord’s Day.” (CCC 2187). This intentionality about Sabbath rest is something that has generally been lost in today’s world, and it is something worth reconsidering.
The second precept is “You shall confess your sins at least once a year.” This precept is related to the third precept, regarding receiving the Eucharist. The Catechism states that this precept “ensures preparation for the Eucharist by the reception of the sacrament of reconciliation, which continues Baptism’s work of con-version and forgiveness.” (CCC, 2042).
This precept is based on Church law that goes back to the Fourth Lateran Council in 1215. It stated “Each member of the faithful, of both sexes, after he or she has reached the years of discretion, is to confess individually all his or her sins at least once a year.”
The point of this precept is not to say “Go to confession only once a year”. The point is that, at a very minimum, if you are conscious of having committed a grave sin (mortal sin), you should go to confession at least within a year. The reason for this is so that you would be able to receive Communion at least once a year (the third precept of the Church). But no one who really knows what Communion is would be content with only going once a year! The same is true with Confession. In confession we meet, in a very tangible way, with the mercy and love of God. If you are unsure of whether or not a particular sin was mortal, the best place to go is confession and ask the opinion of the priest (he went to school for this, you know).
This also means, that if you find yourself in a position where you are unable to receive Communion, or absolution in Confession, you should at least be doing everything that is in your power to get yourself to the point of being able to return to the practice of the sacraments.
Despite the law’s requirements of once a year confession, many spiritual writers and others suggest going to confession much more frequently, even if you aren’t conscious of having committed any mortal sins. A good rule of thumb is once a month or every six weeks. If you can go more often than that, it wouldn’t hurt! Pope Francis has said that “All of us are sinners. We are wounded and we need to bring our wounds to Christ for healing”. “We may think that going to confession is like going to the dry cleaners to get out a stain, but it isn’t. It’s an encounter with Jesus who waits for us to forgive us and offer salvation.” He goes to confession every two weeks.
We also see here how following the letter of Church law is not particularly burdensome for the majority of cases. We are called to much more. In the lives of the saints, we find that frequent confession is almost always a key part of their journey towards holiness and union with God.
The third precept is “You shall humbly receive your Creator in Holy Communion at least during the Easter season.”
The Catechism tells us that this precept “guarantees as a minimum the reception of the Lord’s Body and Blood in connection with the Paschal feasts, the origin and center of the Christian liturgy.”
Notice that the wording of the precept is “humbly receive”, not simply “receive”. There is an emphasis on receiving Communion worthily. In a real sense, none of us are worthy, but we are made worthy by God’s power through baptism and being in the state of grace. However, because Communion really is Communion with Christ and the other members of His Body, we have to be living (albeit imperfectly) in Communion with Christ and with His
Church. This is why we had the 2nd precept last week, about going to Confession.
Again, like the previous two precepts, we shouldn’t need this rule if we really understand what is going on. The Eucharist is the greatest gift that God has given us. We receive the very Body and Blood of Christ, and he begins to change us ever more and more into Himself. We come into intimate Communion with our Lord and Creator. What a beautiful treasure! As the Hymn Panis angelicus, written by St. Thomas Aquinas puts it, “What an admirable thing! A poor man, a humble slave, eats the flesh of the Lord!”
Today we celebrate the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ. This is a time to really reflect on the place of the Eucharist in our lives. Vatican II taught that the Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. How does it function in that way for you? If
someone else were to look at your life, objectively, from the outside, would they be able to make that claim about the Eucharist in your life?
The fourth precept is “You shall observe the days of fasting and abstinence established by the Church”. The Catechism tells us that this “ensures the times of ascesis and penance which prepares us for the liturgical feasts and helps us acquire mastery over our instincts and freedom of heart” (CCC, 2043).
Note the reasoning– we have to prepare for the great liturgical feasts. In our culture it can often seem like life is a perpetual feast (to those with the means). But in Christian life, there is no feast without a fast, no Resurrection without the Cross. Secondly, we are called to obtain mastery over our instincts. Fasting, penances, and mortifications are the disciplines that we use to grow in this self-mastery, so that we do not remain slaves to sin or to our disordered appetites.
This precept is much easier to fulfill than it was in the past (the reason Mardi Gras and Carnival exist historically is because people needed to get rid of everything they couldn’t have during Lent!). But that really means that if we don’t practice it, we really aren’t doing the bare minimum for our spiritual lives. Really, we should be practicing fasting and mortification much further than the Church requires of us!
There are two days of fasting for the Latin Church– Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. On Fridays of Lent we abstain from eating meat. Many people don’t know that in the universal law of the Church, we are still supposed to abstain from meat every Friday of the year. However, regional bishops’ conferences were allowed to modify that rule. For the United States, we are asked to abstain from meat on all Fridays, or, outside of Lent, we can substitute that with “some other suitable penance.” But Friday still retains its penitential character– it is the day that we remember the Passion and death of the Lord.
Interested in becoming Catholic, or know someone who is? Contact Michael Schmitz at: email@example.com or at 360-653-9400 to get some of your questions answered and find out about the process and how we can make that happen!
May God richly bless all those who received the sacrament of Confirmation, and were anointed with the power of the Holy Spirit last weekend, and all who received Christ for the first time in the Holy Eucharist. May these sacraments bring them closer to our God who has so wonderfully redeemed us and brings that redemption to us by means of the sacraments!
