Confraternity of Christian Doctrine. It is an old term for religious education that was tried to be changed to simple "religious education" for those in garde and high school,… but it is so engrained that it is still called CCD
Children are accepted at the age of 5 years old. You can start as early as PreK4, but definitely start by first grade to ensure proper preparation for first communion in secon…d grade.
Catholic comes from the Greek for Universal. The name catholic wasn't so much a name that was given as much as a description of the universality of the early christian faith. … ANSWER: True to some degree but the reality is that historically, The Catholic Church has existed by that specific name: "The Catholic Church" since at least 110 AD. Iraneous is the first to identify Christians -- in the written record -- as members of The Catholic Church. The Catholic Church continues to exist today, and by that specific name, and has existed by that name for more than 1900+ years. "Catholic" was, therefore, not merely a concept or merely general description of the Christian Church, it was and remains, in my opinion, Her true and authentic name.
This depends purely upon when the Director of Religious Education schedules it. There are no religious requirements dictating when CCD should be held. For the purposes of conv…enience, most CCD classes are scheduled on Sundays, after the Mass. However, if a child was to attend a Catholic school, their CCD would be taught in the Religion class daily, allowing them the choice not to attend CCD when their parish schedules it.

Benedict XVI in his encyclical Deus Caritas Est explained that love is broken into two different types: eros (descending) and agape (ascending). Eros is errotic love (the orig…in of that word) and agape is more unconditional, higher, more pure love. Neither of the two are actually greater than another, they are simply two parts to the same thing. I encourage you to read the first chapter of the encylical on the Vatican web site.
Catholic Answer Baptism, in the Catholic Church, is the first of the sevensacraments, and the "door" which gives access to the othersacraments. Baptism is the first and chi…ef sacrament of forgivenessof sins because it unites us with Christ, who died for our sins androse for our justification. It is so necessary for salvation thatit is extended to all, and those who do not have access to physicalbaptism are, we believe, provided for by God through baptism byblood (martyrdom) and baptism by desire (if death occurs beforebaptism). The rite of Baptism consists of immersing the candidatein water, or pouring water on the head, while pronouncing theinvocation of the Most Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. from Modern Catholic Dictionary by John A. Hardon, S.J.Doubleday & Co., Inc. Garden City, NY 1980 . The Sacrament in which, by water and the word of God, aperson is cleansed of all sin and reborn and sanctified in Christto everlasting life. (Etym. Latin baptisma; from Greek baptisma, adipping.. from The Catechism of the Catholic Church, second edition,English translation 1994 1213 Holy Baptism is the basis of the wholeChristian life, the gateway to life in the spirit (vitaespiritualis ianua), and the door which give access to the othersacraments. through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn assons of God' we become members of Christ, are incorporated into theChurch and made shares in her mission: "Baptism is the sacrament ofregeneration through water in the word." 1214 This sacrament if called Baptism, after thecentral rite by which it is carried out: to baptize (Greekbaptizein means to "plunge" or "immerse"; the "plunge" into thewater symbolizes the catechumen's burial into Christ's death, fromwhich he rises up by resurrection with him, as "a new creature." 1216 "This bath is called enlightenment, becausethose who receive this [catechetical] instruction are enlightenedin their understanding. . . ." Having received in Baptism the Word,"the true light that enlightens every man," the person baptized hasbeen "enlightened," he becomes a "son of light," indeed he becomes"light" himself: Baptism is God's most beautiful and magnificent gift . . . We callit gift, grace, anointing, enlightenment, garment of immortality,bath of rebirth, seal, and most precious gift. It is called giftbecause it is conferred on those who bring nothing of their own;grace since it is given even to the guilt; Baptism because sin isburied in the water; anointing for it is priestly and royal as arethose who are anointed; enlightenment because it radiates light;clothing since it veils our shame; bath because it washes; and sealas it is our guard and the sign of God's Lordship. 1266 The Most Holy Trinity gives the baptizedsanctifying grace, the grace of justification: - enabling them to believe in God, to hope in him, and to love himthrough the theological virtues; - giving them the power to live and act under the prompting of theHoly Spirit through the gifts of the Holy Spirit; - allowing them to grow in goodness through the moralvirtues..

The name 'Yahweh' derives from the Old Testament name of God YHWH which is suppose to be unpronounceable as the name of God was never to be spoken. It is too sacred and it sho…uld not be profaned by using it in human speech. Remember, the word 'God' is not His name but only a description, such as the words pope, king or mayor. The Catholic Church, in recent years, is returning to its Jewish roots and it has been recommended that congregations refrain from using the term Yahweh and to no longer use hymns that include that term or derivatives of the word such as Jehovah.
Reconciliation is another name for Confession or Penance.

Catholic AnswerMorality in the Catholic Church covers a range of topics. First of all, it covers good acts and evil acts, with regard to their object - what is intended by the… act, whether the act, in and of itself is good or evil. Then it looks at circumstances and conditions. Finally it looks at social doctrine, the laws that govern social living. In all of these, the Church starts from Revelation and natural law. This is what She is called to do by Her Savior, whose mouthpiece She is. "She fulfills her mission of proclaiming the Gospel, she bears witness to man, in the name of Christ, to his dignity and his vocation to the communion of persons. She teaches him the demands of justice and peace in conformity with divine wisdom>" - from the Catechism. . from The Catechism of the Catholic Church, second edition, English translation 19941756 It is therefor an error to judge the morality of human acts of considering only the intention that inspires them or the circumstances (environment, social pressure, duress or emergency, etc.) which supply their context. There are acts which, in and of themselves, independently of circumstances and intentions, are always gravely illicit by reason of their object; such as blasphemy and perjury, murder and adultery. One may not do evil so that good may result from it.. 2420 The Church makes a moral judgment about economic and social matters, "when the fundamental rights of the person or the salvation of souls requires it." (Gaudium et spes 76 § 5) In the moral order she bears a mission distinct from that of political authorities: the Church is concerned with the temporal aspects of the common good because they are ordered to the sovereign Good, our ultimate end. She strives to inspire right attitudes with respect to earthly goods and in socio-economic relationships..
