And the Lord


turned and looked at
Peter
Luke 22:61

In this Year of the Poor, may our neediness be turned to


sanctity, and may our arrogance be turned to service. In all,
may the love of the Crucified Lord triumph as he gazes into
our hearts and we dare to look into his.

Who are they?


Jesus
Option for the
Poor

1. The Gospel calls Christians to put the needs


of the poor first. A common moral test of a
society is how it treats its most vulnerable
people.
2. Precisely because we wish to be at the service of
all of society, our primary concern will always
be those who live on its margin, excluded
from the essential services. Wherever there is
structural injustice, Christians are called to
oppose it. Those with the greatest need require
the greatest response.
3. God is Father of all, without exception, and we
firmly believe in the equal dignity of all . It is
this belief which commits us in faith to promote
respect for the inalienable rights of all and their

Looking through the JPIC
for Gods Kingdom

You are not making a gift of your


possessions to the poor person.
You are handing over to him what
is his. For what has been given in
common for the use of all, you
have arrogated to yourself. The
world is given to all, and not only
to the rich.
PP #23

The PCP II Vision of BECs


Our vision of the Church as communion, a
Church as priestly, prophetic and kingly
people, and as a Church of the Poor that
is a Church that is renewed, is today
finding expression in one ecclesial
movement, and this is the movement to
foster Basic Ecclesial Communities (PCP II
137).

Empathic listening
is about the
speaker,
not the listener.

Empathic Listening
DO
Listen for emotion and
content
Watch body language
Put yourself in the other
persons shoes
Have a sincere desire to
understand

DONT:
Listen with the intent
to reply
Clutter your brain
with thought
Use empathic listening
as a technique.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation


"But if a wicked man turns
away from all the sins he has
committed and keeps all my
decrees and does what is just
and right, he will surely live;
he will not die. None of the
offenses he has committed will
be remembered against him.
Ezekiel 18:21-22

Sacrament of Reconciliation
I am the light of
the world. Whoever
follows me will not
walk in darkness,
but will have the
light of life.
John 8:12

Sacrament of Reconciliation
Those who are
well do not need a
physician, but the
sick do. I did not
come to call the
righteous but
sinners
Mark 2:17

Sin is Like Leprosy


It corrupts all that is good and noble in us

Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature:


sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is
idolatry.
Colossians 3:5

Sin is like a Fracture


He answered, "I
heard you in
the garden, and
I was afraid
because I was
naked; so I
hid."
Genesis 3:10

It separates us from Gods Friendship

Sin Lead us to Spiritual Death


Revelation
20: 11-15
11Then I saw a great white throne and him
who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled from
his presence, and there was no place for them.
12And I saw the dead, great and small,
standing before the throne, and books were
opened. Another book was opened, which is the
book of life. The dead were judged according to
what they had done as recorded in the books.
13The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and
death and Hades gave up the dead that were in
them, and each person was judged according to
what he had done. 14Then death and Hades
were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of
fire is the second death. 15If anyone's name
was not found written in the book of life, he
was thrown into the lake of fire.

The Sacraments of Healing

sacraments of
healing:

Essentials of the Sacrament

Contrition (sorrow)
Resolution = a firm desire
not to offend God through
sinful behavior.
Confession = the
enumeration of our sins.
Satisfaction = Penance,
making amends.
A person that goes to
confession to threatens the
life of another is not making
a confession. He or she is
making a threat.
The priest is not bound in
this case to keep the seal of
confession.

Contrition

sorrow and
repentance for
ones sins.
Two types:
A. Perfect
Contrition
B. Imperfect
Contrition

Perfect Contrition
Sorrow out of true
love for God.

Imperfect Contrition
Sorrow out of Fear
for eternal
punishment.

Confession
Confession is the
disclosure of our
sins to the minister
Confession is the
admission of guilt

Then I acknowledged my
sin to you and did not cover
up my iniquity. I said, "I will
confess my transgressions
to the LORD " and you
forgave the guilt of my sin.
Psalm 32:5

Examination of Conscience

lives.

of the way we live.
An essential
component in the
preparation for the
sacrament of
reconciliation.

Satisfaction

wrong.

Absolution

A blessing of forgiveness.
The priest acting in the person of
Christ and through his power
absolves the penitent from his or
her sin.
Again Jesus said,
"Peace be with you! As the Father has

sent me, I am sending you." And with that


he breathed on them and said, "Receive
the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone his
sins, they are forgiven; if you do not
forgive them, they are not forgiven."
John 20: 21-23

Only bishops and priests can give


absolution and hear confessions.
The minister of confession is
bound by the seal of confession,
under penalty of excommunication.
He cannot reveal any sins
confessed.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation

Tips:
Receive this sacrament as often as possible.
Make an examination of conscience before going to
confession.
Make an honest confession (do not exaggerate your sins, do
not talk about others in your confession, do not mention
any names. Do not avoid confessing certain sins out of
shame.)
Trust in Gods mercy.
Fulfill your penance with a contrite, joyful heart.
Give thanks to Almighty God for his unending mercy and
love.
Pray for the unrepentant hearts that are harden by sin.
Ask the Good Lord to give you his grace, to live a life
worthy of the Gospel.
