    Correct Answer
    B. Couples confer the sacrament of Matrimony on each other
    Explanation
    In the Western Church, it is believed that couples confer the sacrament of Matrimony on each other. This means that the couple themselves, through their vows and commitment to each other, are the ones who make the marriage sacramental. The role of the priest is to witness and bless the marriage, but it is the couple who actually confer the sacrament upon each other. This understanding emphasizes the active participation and responsibility of the couple in the sacrament of Matrimony.

    Responding to a problem with OK

    • A.

      Forgiveness

    • B.

      Not Forgiveness

    • C.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Not Forgiveness
    Explanation
    This answer suggests that responding to a problem with "OK" does not indicate forgiveness. It implies that simply acknowledging or accepting the problem does not necessarily mean forgiving the person or situation involved. Forgiveness involves letting go of negative emotions and resentment towards the offender, which may not be achieved by responding with "OK" alone. Therefore, the correct answer is "Not Forgiveness."

This helped to solidify the power and authority of the Church in Spain and promote religious unity.

It is believed to completely sever the individual's relationship with God and can only be forgiven through the sacrament of Penance.

    Exempting a criminal from punishment

      Forgiveness

    • B.

      Not forgiveness

    B. Not forgiveness
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Not forgiveness". This suggests that exempting a criminal from punishment does not necessarily equate to forgiveness. While forgiveness involves letting go of resentment and granting pardon, exempting a criminal from punishment may be due to other reasons such as lack of evidence or legal technicalities. Therefore, it is important to understand that not all instances of exempting a criminal from punishment imply forgiveness.

      Sound Funny

    • B.

      Cut off our relationship with God

    • C.

      Are worse than mortal sin

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    D. Weaken our relationship with God
    Explanation
    Venial sins refer to minor offenses that do not completely sever our relationship with God but weaken it instead. These sins do not completely cut off our connection with God, unlike mortal sins which have more severe consequences. Venial sins may include small acts of disobedience or lack of charity. By committing venial sins, we damage our relationship with God, diminishing the strength of our connection and creating distance between ourselves and Him. Therefore, the given answer accurately states that venial sins weaken our relationship with God.

The Second Vatican Council, held from 1962 to 1965, introduced significant reforms in the Catholic Church, aiming to make the liturgy more accessible and participatory for the faithful. As part of these reforms, the use of Scripture in the mass was encouraged and expanded. The readings from the Bible became more prominent, with the introduction of more Scripture passages and the inclusion of readings in the vernacular language. This shift aimed to highlight the importance of Scripture in the life of the Church and to encourage the faithful to engage more deeply with the Word of God.

    • A.

      The Pope

    All bishops receive the fullness of the Sacrament of Holy Orders. This is because the Sacrament of Holy Orders has three degrees: bishop, priest, and deacon. While priests and deacons receive a share in the sacrament, it is the bishops who receive the fullness of the sacrament. Bishops have the authority to ordain priests and deacons, and they are responsible for the overall governance and leadership of the Church. Therefore, they hold the highest degree of Holy Orders and receive the fullness of the sacrament.
