What are the Sacramentals?

Sacramentals are places, objects, dates, actions or gestures that give us grace. It reminds us of the grace of the Sacraments, gives us good thoughts, and increases our devotion to God, angels, and saints. It can also give us good health, protection from evil spirits, and help us receive blessings for those who use it. The difference between the Sacraments and Sacramentals is that the Sacraments were instituted by our Lord Jesus Christ, while Sacramentals were recognized sacred signs, objects and acts by the Catholic Church. The Sacraments give sanctifying grace, while the Sacramentals give actual grace. Sanctifying grace makes the soul holy and becomes a child of God, and it is permanent unless we make a grave sin. Actual Grace is a temporary grace that enlightens our mind and strengthens our heart to do good and avoid doing evil.

The Stations of the Cross

The Stations of the Cross or The Way of the Cross is a series of images depicting the passion and death of Our Lord Jesus Christ. These images are usually placed in Catholic church’s nave where the faithful come to pray during the Lenten season.

FAQ about The History of the Holy Mass

As we posted the article 'The History of the Holy Mass', let's answer some questions about it. By answering these questions, we will be enlightened by facts and truths that we should know.

The Importance of Sacrament of Penance

The Sacrament of Penance or also known as reconciliation or confession is one of the Sacraments of the Catholic Church. It is where we confess our sins to the Priest and where he has us absolution and our penance. Recently, I've been looking for churches near me that has a schedule of confession. Some of the church people do not know the schedule, and some said it depends on the schedule of the priest. I wondered why some of these churches have no confession schedule posted in their parish or online. Is the Sacrament of Penance no longer important today?

The Traditionalist and the Modernist Catholics (Part 2)

We recently shared what is the Traditionalist and Modernist Catholics and their beliefs. Now, we would like to share their attitudes and also their expression about the Catholic Church, Vatican II, the Traditional Latin Mass and the Novus Ordo Mass. Take note, this thing that we share about them doesn't mean that all of these Catholics have the same attitude. Let's get started.

The Traditionalist and the Modernist Catholics (Part 1)

During the early 19th and late 20th century, modernism slowly entered the church and the modernists wanted to reform it. But it was easily defeated by Pope St. Pius X when he restored the Tridentine Mass to its original form and spread catechism to every church and school. The modernist clergy cannot do anything but return to tradition. Until a modernist pope, Pope John XXIII opens the Second Vatican Council. And made many reforms until his successor, Pope Paul VI, executed most of its plans, including the reform of the Holy Mass, known as the Novus Ordo Mass. This event divided the Catholics, which are The Modernists and the Traditionalists. Today, these two types of Catholics are having a battle of words including social media. In this article, we will discuss these two Catholics, their beliefs, and their attitudes. We will also share how we approach them and give advice to these two.

The Conversation of God and the Devil – The Vision of Pope Leo XIII

The battle between good and evil, God and the Devil was started when Lucifer together with the other angels rebel against God. God's army of angels with St. Michael the Archangel as their leader defeated them. They become the fallen angels, or most commonly known as the devils or demons. Then, Lucifer, or most commonly known as Satan, tempts Eve to eat the Fruit of Knowledge and share it with Adam. Which results in disobedience to God, the fall from grace of humanity, and the birth of Original Sin. Until the Blessed Virgin Mary listens to St. Gabriel the Archangel and obeys the will of God. It resulted in the birth of our savior, our Lord Jesus Christ. He lives as a human like us. He built the Catholic Church on St. Peter's foundation. He suffered and died on the cross to save us, resurrected, and ascended into Heaven. God won again. The Devil always challenged God and tries to attack the church. Until Pope Leo XIII saw a vision and heard the conversation between God and the Devil.

The History of the Holy Mass

It is crucial for us Catholics to attend and pray the Holy Mass every Sunday. Here we give thanks to God, to offer sacrifice as Christ offer his life to us and to receive the body of our Lord which is the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. Most of us know that the Last Supper was the first mass in the world. But we don't know how it's celebrated in the form of the Traditional Latin Mass, why the bread becomes a white circle shape waffle and how the Mass becomes a Novus Ordo Mass which is widely celebrated today. Let's find out!

The Greatest Love in the Holy Mass

Have you experienced of doing something for your love or for other people, but still, they ignore you. Is it pain that everything you've done to them, yet they still don't remember your sacrifice. Now you know this feeling you must understand that there's one person who also experience this and it is not just days, months or five years, but it's been 2000 years and still, the people ignored his sacrifice, and that person is our Lord Jesus Christ, who has been tortured, crucified and died because He love us. Even so many years have passed, still He loves us and show it in the form of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Where the greatest love of all was given, the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

The Traditional Feast of Christ the King

You may notice that today, we post the Feast of the Kingship of our Lord Jesus Christ or mostly known as the Feast of Christ the King. While the world knows that this feast was celebrated on the last Sunday of November, we post it in the last Sunday of October. The reason is because today, is the original date of this feast before Pope Paul VI moved it.

Defending the Catholic Faith  (Part 3)

In our previous defense of the Catholic Faith, we defend the nature of God that we Catholics believed. Defending our faith also teaches others including the next generation. Today we defend other topics that the protestants usually criticized about us Catholics.

Defending the Catholic Faith  (Part 2)

Defending the Catholic Faith is a duty that we must fulfill including the priest and those who serve in the church. It is not only defending our soul from our persecutors but also strengthens the faith of those who listen during the defense, including our loved ones. Previously, we shared three topics about the Catholic Faith that we answered to defend it. Now we would like to share more:
