  • A creed is a summary or statement of what one believes. The word …. I believe, I accept or hold true something on the word of another. The AC is a collection of all the truths the Apostles believed. It’s so called because it has come down (handed down to us as part of the deposit of faith) to us from the time of the apostles. The apostles were the 12 men that Jesus chose to be his first bishops- Peter being the first. They lived with him, followed him and learnt from him during his public ministry. These apostles taught and preached, following Jesus command “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; …(Matthew 28:19)..(as what Martin spoke about last week). What so important about the Creed, you may ask? When we recite the Creed, we make an act of faith. I believe in the God I cannot see, in the Trinity which is beyond my understanding and I put our trust in God’s word. This is what the C is about. The way your sessions designed – threads the entire Creed. That’s how important. Naturally a big part is devoted to JC- He the man. In the ancient days the Creed was used as a summary of Christian doctrines for baptismal candidates in the Roman churches. It is still used in the Rite of Baptism. During your baptism, each of you will be asked to profess your faith in the form of questions..Sunday Mass – Nicene Mass-longer version

  • TRADITIONAL PRAYERS AND DEVOTIONS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
  • SIGN OF THE CROSS In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit AMEN
  • SIGN OF THE CROSS
    • Gives us the identity of a Christian - it is a distinctly Catholic sign
    • Gives witness to both those who make it and those who see it that faith in Jesus Christ is a force in the world.
    • Sanctifies our lives in consecration to the Three Persons of the Blessed Trinity
    • Shows that the faith of all Christians rests on the Trinity.
  • WHEN do we make the sign of the cross?
    • At the beginning and end of prayers
    • In administering the sacraments
    • When entering and leaving (optional) the church (by dipping our fingers in holy water)
    • When receiving a blessing
  • WHY do we make the sign of the cross?
    • To remind us of the Blessed Trinity - The Father, Son and Holy Spirit
    • Reminds us of our baptism
    • Reminds us that the Son of God died on the cross for all men.
    • Blessing ourselves to bring us into the presence of the Lord
  • SIGN OF THE CROSS In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit AMEN
  • THE “AMEN”
    • Derived from a Hebrew word which means “believe”
    • When we respond with “AMEN”, we are saying “Yes, I believe” or “So be it”
    • Belief in someone indicates that the person is solid, trustworthy and faithful. “AMEN” - “express both God’s faithfulness towards us and our trust in him” (CCC 1062)
  • THE “AMEN” (cont’d)
    • The most original use of “AMEN” was by Jesus himself as He repeatedly opened a teaching with the phrase “Amen, I say to you…”
    • When we receive the Eucharist, we also say “Amen”- “yes, it is true..” (CCC 1396)
    • The Church concludes all its prayers with “Amen”, an affirmation - a Yes, a “so be it!” to what we have just prayed and a sign of participation by those assembled.
  • THE “AMEN” (cont’d)
    • The Great Amen concludes the most solemn part of the Mass (“Through Him, with Him and in Him….)
    • In praying “Amen”, we entrust ourselves “completely to Him who is the “Amen of infinite love and perfect faithfulness.”
  • THE LORD’S PRAYER Matthew 6:9-13
  • The Lord’s Prayer (Our Father)
    • Called the Lord’s Prayer because it comes to us from our Lord Jesus, the master and model of our prayer.
    • Truly a summary of the whole gospel
    • The most perfect of prayers.
      • In it we ask not only for all the things we can rightly desire, but also in the sequence that they should be desired.
    • The prayer of the Church
    • Recorded in the gospels of Matthew & Luke
  • The Seven Petitions
    • Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy Name
    • Thy kingdom come
    • Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
    • Give us this day our daily bread
    • And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us
    • And lead us not into temptation,
    • But deliver us from evil. Amen
  • THE LORD’S PRAYER The Lord’s prayer Our Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name Thy kingdom come Thy will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass against us: And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. Amen
  • THE HAIL MARY Luke 1:28
  • And he came to her and said, “Greetings, favoured one! The Lord is with you. – Luke 1:28
  • "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you. . . Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord: let it be done to me according to your word." (Luke 1: 28, 38) THE ANNUNCIATION
  • "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb." (Luke 1: 42 ) THE VISITATION

  • AN EVENING PRAYER
  • O Lord, my God, thank you for bringing this day to a close. Thank you for giving me rest in body and soul. Your hand has been over me and has guarded and preserved me. Forgive my lack of faith and any wrong that I have done today, and help me to forgive all who have wronged us. Let me sleep in peace under your protection, and keep me from all temptations of darkness. Into your hands I commend my love ones I commend to you my body and soul O God, your holy name be praised. Amen - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

  • GRACE AFTER MEALS We give you thanks for all your benefits, O mighty God, who lives and reigns forever Amen
  • THE ANGELUS The Angelus was a Catholic devotion time. When the church bell rang, people stopped their work and recited a prayer. This happened three times a day; morning, noon, and evening. In the famous painting by French painter Jean Millet “THE ANGELUS” we see the man and his wife stopping for devotion after hearing the bell from the church in the distance.
  • THE ANGELUS
    • The Angelus is a short devotion in honor of the Incarnation of our Blessed Lord, and it is recited three times a day. It is distinctively Catholic.
    • It commemorates the angel Gabriel’s announcement (the Annunication Lk 1:26-38)- to the Virgin Mary of the Incarnation
    • The tolling of church bells at fixed hours marks the time in which the Angelus is prayed: at 6am, 12 noon and 6pm.
  • THE ANNUCIATION
  • THE ANGELUS (contd)
    • Is a prayer of the people to sanctify the day
    • Is a recalling of how salvation came and still comes to man
    • Is a prayer remembrance of the Incarnation
  • THE ANGELUS L. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary, R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit. Hail Mary …... L. Behold the handmaid of the Lord, R. Be it done unto me according to Thy Word. Hail Mary….. L. And the Word was made flesh, R. And dwelt amongst us. Hail Mary...
  • L. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God. R. That we may be made worthy of the promise of Christ. Let us pray Pour forth , we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts; that we, to whom the Incarnation of Christ Thy Son was made known by the message of an angel, may, by His passion and cross, be brought to the glory of His Resurrection; through the same Christ our Lord. Amen The angelus (2)
