Things to Remember

There are words of the Holy Scriptures and prayers, which are desirable to know by heart:

  1. The prayer "Our Father" (Matt. 6:9-13; Luke 11:24)
  2. The main commandments of the Old Testament (Deut. 65; Lev. 19:18)
  3. The main Gospel commandments (Matt. 5:3-12; Matt. 5:21-48; Matt. 6:1-3; Matt. 6:6, 14-21, 24-25; Matt. 7:15; Matt. 23:8-12; John 13:34).
  4. The Creed
  5. Morning and evening prayers from the abbreviated prayer book
  6. The number and meaning of the sacraments.

Sacraments should not be confused with rituals. Rituals are any external show of reverence expressing our faith. Sacraments — are such services, during which the Church calls upon the Holy Spirit, and His Grace descends on the faithful. There are seven such sacraments: Baptism, Anointing, Eucharist, Repentance (Confession), Marriage, Unction, and Ordination.
