- True or False?: In the Eucharist we raise ourselves above concern with the material order of creation in order to maintain a spiritual union with the Father.
As for the previous poll, here are the results:
- T or F?: Because Baptism & Confirmation are not celebrated at the same time, the connection of the two sacraments is expressed by the renewal of baptismal vows.
- True: 21 (68%)
- False: 10 (32%)
- TRUE, cf. CCC no. 1321: When Confirmation is celebrated separately from Baptism, its connection with Baptism is expressed, among other ways, by the renewal of baptismal promises. The celebration of Confirmation during the Eucharist helps underline the unity of the sacraments of Christian initiation.
