Catechism of the Day

The Sacrament of the Altar continued

What is the benefit of such eating and drinking?

That is shown us by these words,

"Given and shed for you for the remission of sins";

namely, that in the Sacrament forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation are given us through these words. For where there is forgiveness of sins, there is also life and salvation.

Quid vero prodest sic comedisse et bibisse?

Id indicant nobis haec verba:

“Pro vobis datur et effunditur in remissionem peccatorum,”

nempe quod nobis per verba illa in sacramento remissio peccatorum, vita, iustitia et salus donentur. Ubi enim remissio peccatorum est, ibi est et vita et salus.
