Liturgical Year B – 2021:

To better enable follow up on each section in The Catholic Navigator, The Catholic Clipper, The Catholic Schooner and The Catholic Tugboat weekly issues, we strive to base our sources on reliable ONLINE Catholic materials. Our hope is to make you, the mobile Catholic, better able to learn as you go about your daily life. However, occasionally we have had to source our commentary only from print material, for which we provide the pertinent information for ordering from a library or book seller.  All links have been accessed just prior to posting to assure that they are currently active. To access sources to print editions, move your cursor over the listing for the issue of interest and click to open.

Verse mnemonic for remembering ‘how’ we are to read Sacred Scripture:

God the Father, Creator ours,
Filled time and place with proofs,          (literally – deeds)
And through the Word, the Son of God,
Revealed his hidden truths.                 (spiritually: what is)
Jesus, Son of God enfleshed,
Showed us how to be, while   (spiritually: what should be)
Holy Spirit, here at last,
Leads us to Eternity!                     (spiritually: what will be)

Our Catholic Prayers – the Apostles Creed
https://www.ourcatholicprayers.com/the-apostles-creed.html

The Apostles’ Creed is divided into what we refer to as 12 articles. Like the Nicene Creed that we recite at Mass, it is a solid profession of the fundamental truths of our faith:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth; (The 1st article)
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; (The 2nd)
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
Born of the Virgin Mary, (The 3rd)
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died, and was buried. (The 4th)
He descended into hell;
The third day he rose again from the dead; (The 5th)
He ascended into Heaven,
And is seated at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty;
(The 6th)
From thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead.
(The 7th)
I believe in the Holy Spirit, (The 8th)
The Holy Catholic Church,
The Communion of Saints, (The 9th)
The forgiveness of sins, (The 10th)
The resurrection of the body, (The 11th)
And life everlasting. Amen. (The 12th)

It’s hard to summarize the Apostles’ Creed in a few short paragraphs. The current Catechism of the Catholic Church offers some 200-plus pages of excellent analysis of this prayer.”
