Malta Minute with the Catechism: The Communion of Saints

  • Program #: 128
  • Description: Who and what make up the "Communion of Saints"? According to the Catholic Catechism, the Communion of Saints, that forms one Church, is composed of the faithful in heaven, the faithful expiating their sins in purgatory and those still walking their earthly journey. The Catechism says there is a perennial link of charity that exists between the three groups. The holiness of one profits others much more than the sins of one can cause harm to others. The spiritual goods of the Communion of Saints is called the Treasury of the Church. It is made up of the infinite value of the merits of Christ the Redeemer which can never be exhausted before the Father; the prayers, the immense and unfathomable good works of the Blessed Mother and the prayers and good works of all the Saints. This is Peggy Stanton and this has been the Order of Malta's Minute with the Catechism.
