  • Why do we have the three Sacraments of Christian Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist? In this talk Andrew takes us through the Catechism of the Catholic Church regarding these three sacraments. By virtue of receiving these sacraments the Christian has entered into a new mode of existence, so that, with St Paul, the baptised can truly say, "It's now no long I that live, but Christ who lives in me" (Gal 2:20).

  • Leading up to Easter, the feast when Christians celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, is the forty day season of Lent. This was the time in the early Church when people were being prepared to enter the Church through the waters of Baptism at the Holy Saturday night Easter Vigil. During Lent, the likes of Saint Cyril of Jerusalem (315-387AD) taught the faith to those who wished to become Christian. What is peculiar with the early Church is that the teaching did not stop with Baptism. Either during the week after Easter (known as Easter Week) or even for the next fifty days, up to Pentecost Sunday, the newly Baptised were taught all about what they had received at the Easter Vigil, when they were Baptised, Confirmed and received their first Holy Communion. This was known as the Mystagogical Catechesis. In this exciting talk Andrew takes you through some of the fascinating things Saint Cyril of Jerusalem taught the people he baptised, and showed them the sublime beauty of what they had received.
