  5. 5. Some Winter 2009-2010 Lessons<br />The early Church was very similar to today’s Church in many ways. <br />The Church defended its beliefs by establishing the Biblical canon, through the writings of the Fathers of the Church, Ecumenical Councils, and the Creed.<br />Thanksgiving (the holiday) is similar to the Eucharist, which means “thanksgiving.” <br />The Church was divided during the 1054 schism, the Great Schism, and the Protestant Reformation. <br />St. Pius X encouraged people to receive the Eucharist daily and lowered the age of 1st communion to 7. <br />The Church went through many changes after Vatican II. <br />
