17 Take this, all of you, and eat of it, for this is my Body, which will be given up for you.
Take this, all of you, and drink from it, for this is the chalice of my Blood, the Blood of the new and eternal covenant, which will be poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this in memory of me.

18 Consecration

19 Holy Communion nourishes the soul.
True presence, Christ hasn’t abandoned us. Eucharistia means thanksgiving Symbolism of cup: martyrdom

20 St. Justin Martyr, 155AD On the day we call the day of the sun, all who dwell in the city or country gather in the same place. The memoirs of the apostles and the writings of the prophets are read, as much as time permits. When the reader has finished, he who presides over those gathered admonishes and challenges them to imitate these beautiful things. Then we all rise together and offer prayers* for ourselves . . .and for all others, wherever they may be, so that we may be found righteous by our life and actions, and faithful to the commandments, so as to obtain eternal salvation. When the prayers are concluded we exchange the kiss. Then someone brings bread and a cup of water and wine mixed together to him who presides over the brethren. He takes them and offers praise and glory to the Father of the universe, through the name of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and for a considerable time he gives thanks (in Greek: eucharistian) that we have been judged worthy of these gifts. When he has concluded the prayers and thanksgivings, all present give voice to an acclamation by saying: 'Amen.' When he who presides has given thanks and the people have responded, those whom we call deacons give to those present the "eucharisted" bread, wine and water and take them to those who are absent.

21 Reconciliation & Anointing of the Sick
Sacraments of Healing Reconciliation & Anointing of the Sick

22 Reconciliation God wants to forgive. Effects: Sins forgiven
(eternal punishment) Reconciled to God & Church

23 Reconciliation God used priests to forgive and atone for the sins of others. (Lev 5:4-6; 19:21-22) "Receive the Holy Spirit. For those whose sins you forgive, they are forgiven; for those whose sins you retain, they are retained." (Jn 20,23) “And all this is from God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ and given us the ministry of reconciliation.” (2 Cor 5:18)

24 Who can forgive? What sins can be forgiven? How often should I go?

25 I forgot how to make a confession.
Examination of Conscience (You will need a conscience.) Confess. Be absolved. Do penance.

26 “sacramental seal” of confession


28 Anointing of the Sick For those seriously ill or advanced in age.
Was called, “Extreme Unction.” Can be repeated. Priest administers sacrament.

29 Oil of the sick “Through this holy anointing may the Lord in his love and mercy help you with the grace of the Holy Spirit. May the Lord who frees you from sin save you and raise you up.”

30 Effects: Unites suffering to Christ Strength, peace, courage
Forgiveness of sins Possibly the restoration of health Preparation for final Passover
