Transcript and Presenter's Notes


Clothes By Hans Christian Anderson
In the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) on
page 292 under 1129 the following is
written The Church affirms that for all
believers the sacraments of the New Covenant are
necessary for salvation. (italics in original)
What are these "sacraments" that are necessary
for salvation?
There are seven sacraments in the Church
Baptism, Confirmation or Chrismation, Eucharist,
Penance, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and
Matrimony. (CCC, p. 289, 1113 see also p. 311,
Roman Catholic View Of Grace
First and foremost, grace is Gods supernatural
gift of all that we need to reach eternal
salvation, including sanctifying grace, the
infused virtues, the gifts of the Holy Spirit,
and actual grace, all of which we need to obtain
the beatific vision.
Bible Grace
Eph 28 For by grace are ye saved through faith
and that not of yourselves it is the gift of
God 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
What Is A Sacrament?
Christ now acts through the sacraments he
instituted to communicate his grace. The
sacraments are perceptible signs (words and
actions) accessible to our human nature. By the
action of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit
they make present efficaciously the grace that
they signify. (1084)
Celebrated worthily in faith, the sacraments
confer the grace that they signify. They are
efficacious because in them Christ himself is at
work it is he who baptizes, he who acts in his
sacraments in order to communicate the grace that
each sacrament signifies. (1127)
One of the above "sacraments" "necessary for
salvation" is the Eucharist.
In the most blessed sacrament of the Eucharist
"the body and blood, together with the soul and
divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and,
therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and
substantially contained." (italics in original,
CCC, p. 346, 1374)
In other words, the bread literally becomes
Jesus' body and the wine literally becomes his
blood. This called Transubstantiation
It is by the conversion of the bread and wine
into Christ's body and blood that Christ becomes
present in this sacrament. (CCC, p. 346, 1375)
At the heart of the Eucharist celebration are the
bread and wine that, by the words of Christ and
the invocation of the Holy Spirit, become
Christ's Body and Blood. (CCC, p. 336, 1333)
The signs of bread and wine become, in a way
surpassing understanding, the Body and Blood of
Christ (CCC, p. 336, 1333)
Who Can Turn Bread Into God Almighty?
Only validly ordained priests can preside at the
Eucharist and consecrate the bread and the wine
so that they become the Body and Blood of the
Lord. (CCC, p. 355, 1411)
Check Your brain at the door
"That in this sacrament are the true Body of
Christ and his true Blood is something that
'cannot be apprehended by the senses,' says St.
Thomas, 'but only by faith, . . . (CCC, p. 348,
Trust in me, JUST IN MEShut your eyes and trust
in meYou can sleep safe and soundKnowing I am
Slip into silent slumber, Sail on a silver
mistSlowly and surely your senses, Will cease
to resist Trust in me, JUST IN ME, Shut your
eyes and trust in me

Worship of the Eucharist. In the liturgy of the
Mass we express our faith in the real presence of
Christ under the species of bread and wine by,
among other ways, genuflecting or bowing deeply
as a sign of adoration of the Lord. (CCC, p. 347,
The Church and the world have a great need for
Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this
sacrament of love. Let us not refuse the time to
go to meet him in adoration, . . . (CCC, p. 348,
What The Bible Says
Presence Or Remembrance
For I received from the Lord that which I also
delivered to you that the Lord Jesus on the same
night in which He was betrayed took bread and
when He had given thanks, He broke it and said,
"Take, eat this is My body which is broken for
you do this in remembrance of Me." In the same
manner He also took the cup after supper, saying,
"This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This
do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of
Me." For as often as you eat this bread and drink
this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death till He
comes. 1 Corinthians 1123-26
The Eucharist (the Mass), is continually offered
up as a sacrifice. The Eucharist is thus a
sacrifice because it re-presents (makes present)
the sacrifice of the cross, . . . (CCC, p. 344,
The sacrifice of Christ and the sacrifice of the
Eucharist are one single sacrifice "The victim
is one and the same the same now offers through
the ministry of priests, who then offered himself
on the cross only the manner of offering is
different." "In this divine sacrifice which is
celebrated in the Mass, the same Christ who
offered himself once in a bloody manner on the
alter of the cross is contained and is offered in
an unbloody manner." (CCC, p. 344, 1367)
What The Bible Says
No Continual Sacrifice Needed
Heb 726 For such an high priest became us, who
is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from
sinners, and made higher than the heavens7 Who
needeth not daily, as those high priests, to
offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and
then for the people's for this he did once, when
he offered up himself.
Heb 1010 By the which will we are sanctified
through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ
once for all.11 And every priest standeth daily
ministering and offering oftentimes the same
sacrifices, which can never take away sins12
But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice
for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of
God13 From henceforth expecting till his
enemies be made his footstool. 14 For by one
offering he hath perfected for ever them that are
