Just how well do you know your religion? Most of us like to think that we do. Older readers will remember learning the Penny Catechism, question by question, by heart. But memories can fade. Younger readers are closer to the time of their religious education, but was it as thorough as in the old days? Everyone is freely to ask questions... And try also to depend our Catholic Faith...


Gregorian Chant is the Best... Almost 1500 years old... The only official sacred music of the Catholic Church...

Thomas A Kempis- The Imitation of Christ

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

Lagi niyong tandaan na kayo ay tumanggap ng isang selyong spiritwal, ang espiritu ng pag-unawa, tamang pag-iisip at kagitingan, kaalaman at pitagan, at ang banal na pangingimi sa Diyos. Lagi niyong bantayan ang ang inyong nakamit. Minarkahan kayo ng Diyos Ama; niratipikahan kayo ng Panginoong Hesukristo. Nasa puso ninyo ang Espiritu.

—San Ambroso

Ang Kumpil, na tinatawag din na Krismasyon, ay isa sa pitong Sakramento ng Kristyanismo na itinatag ni Kristo para sa paggawad ng grasyang santipiko at pagpapalakas ng pagkakaisa sa pagitan ng kaluluwa at ng Diyos.

Makikita ang pinagmulan ng Sakramento ng Kumpil sa libro ng Mga Gawain (8: 14-17) at sa Ebanghelyo ni Juan (ika-14 Kapitulo).

Sa Katolisismo

Ayon sa Katekismo ng Simbahang Katoliko (talatang 1302-1303):

Makikita sa pagdiriwang ng Sakramento na ang dulot nito ay ang espesyal na pagbulos ng Espiritu Santo na noong ibinigay sa mga apostol sa Pentekost.
Idinadala ng Kumpil ang pagpapalaki ng grasya ng Binyag:
  • Pinapalakas nito ang ating pag-ugat sa sakradong pagka-anak na dahilan sa ating pag-iyak ng Abba! Ama! (Romanos 8:15);
  • Ipinagkakakisa tayong buo kay Kristo;
  • Ipinapalaki sa atin ang mga Kaloob ng Espiritu Santo
  • Isinusukdol nito ang ating relasyon sa Simbahan
  • Ibinibigay nito sa atin ang espesyal na kalakasan mula sa Espiritu Santo para ipalaganap at pag-tanggol ang Pananampalataya sa pamamagitan ng salita at gawa bilang tunay na testigo ni Kristo, para iproklama ang Pangalan ni Kristo, at laging hindi nahihiya dahil sa Krus.
