Catholic Word of the Day: FUNERAL RITES, 07-14-10 ^ | 07-14-10 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Posted on 07/14/2010 9:19:56 AM PDT by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):


The liturgical functions that the Church performs at the burial of members of the Catholic Church. The Constitution on the Liturgy of the Second Vatican Council directed that the funeral services be revised to express more clearly the paschal character of Christian death, and that the rite for the burial of infants be given a special Mass. Both provisions were implemented in the new rite promulgated by Pope Paul VI, to take effect on June 1, 1970. The new emphasis is on the Christian hope in eternal life and in the final resurrection from the dead.

The Living Almighty Father God and the Lord Jesus Christ will judge the Pope and all Catholics who do not believe in God's grace from Christ Jesus alone as mentioned by the Apostle Paul who is NOT one of the 12 apostles but made an apostle by God alone to become the apostle to the gentiles - the original 12 apostles were all commissioned to be apostles to the Jews alone for the Great Commission which only resides properly in the Gospel of the Kingdom to the Jews. Today, the Gospel is the dispensation of God's grace for whom we true Christians are to follow the Apostle Paul, and Paul follows Christ Jesus.

If someone today says that they follow Jesus today, then that person better follow and perform ALL the Mosaic Law to be saved.

But Christ Jesus in the Gospels said that He has fulfilled and completed the Mosaic Law so that we who are in this dispensation of God's grace do not need to perform or follow the Law to be saved.

I was born into a Catholic family and I know that Catholics are taught to follow the Mosaic Law; ok, they don't call it the Mosaic Law, but it is the same thing that the Jews were to follow in the OT; which now the Catholics follow by bringing the OT practices and thinking and merge them together with the NT. Not a correct practice.

I know what I am talking about, since I am a grace believer and Christian evangelist and solid theology and doctrine student of God's infallible Word - the Bible.
