Ch. 4 Vocab Ascension- the taking up of the Risen Christ to Heaven Blasphemy- a serious sin of showing contempt or lack of reverence for God and his name Capital sins- grave offenses; sometimes called ?deadly sins? because they completely turn people away from God; called capital because they are the sources of other sins Crucifixion- a form of capital punishment by which a person was tied or nailed to the cross; the death of Jesus on the cross Easter vigil- the opening liturgy of the Easter celebration, held after sundown on Holy Saturday, during which salvation history is recounted and adults are initiated into the Catholic Church Good Friday- the Friday before Easter; the day Jesus died on the cross for our redemption Holy Thursday- the Thursday before Easter. On this night the Church celebrates the institution of the Eucharist at the last supper of Jesus Mortal sin- a very serious wrong that is contrary to God?s law. The effect of mortal sin- if not repented- is eternal separation from God Paschal Mystery- the events involved in our redemption: the passion, death, resurrection, and the ascension Passion- intense suffering for another, out of love for that person. The passion of Christ refers to suffering and death of Jesus Christ out of love for humanity Redemption- God?s saving activity in Jesus in freeing humankind from the bonds of sin and eternal death; the word means buying back or ransoming. Resurrection- God?s rising of Jesus from death to new life Sacramental- a holy sign used by Catholics that help us to pray and remember God?s love for us Second coming- the return of Jesus Christ as king and judge at the end of time Sin- an offense against God that causes a rupture of communion with him, wounds our human nature, and injures solidarity with others Suffering servant- according to Isaiah, the one who would unjustly, but willingly, suffer and die for others Venial sin- a less serious wrong that weakens, but does not destroy, our relationship with God and other people, or a serious wrong done without full knowledge or free will.
