DAILY COMPENDIUM - 218. What is the liturgy?
1066-1070
"The liturgy is the celebration of the mystery of Christ and in particular his paschal mystery. Through the exercise of the priestly office of Jesus Christ the liturgy manifests in signs and brings about the sanctification of humankind.
The public worship which is due to God is offered by the Mystical Body of Christ, that is, by its head and by its members."

DAILY COMPENDIUM - “Amen”
217. What is the meaning of the word “Amen” with which we conclude our profession of faith?
1061-1065
"The Hebrew word “Amen”, which also concludes the last book of Sacred Scripture, some of the prayers of the New Testament, and the liturgical prayers of the Church, expresses our confident and total “yes” to what we professed in the Creed, entrusting ourselves completely to him who is the definitive “Amen” (Revelation 3:14), Christ the Lord."

DAILY COMPENDIUM - 216. What is the hope of the new heavens and the new earth?
1042-1050
1060
"After the final judgment the universe itself, freed from its bondage to decay, will share in the glory of Christ with the beginning of “the new heavens” and a “new earth” (2 Peter 3:13). Thus, the fullness of the Kingdom of God will come about, that is to say, the definitive realization of the salvific plan of God to “unite all things in Christ, things in heaven and things on earth” (Ephesians 1:10). God will then be “all in all” (1 Corinthians 15:28) in eternal life."

DAILY COMPENDIUM - “I BELIEVE IN THE RESURRECTION OF THE BODY”
205. What happens to our body and our soul after death?
992-1004
1016-1018
"After death, which is the separation of the body and the soul, the body becomes corrupt while the soul, which is immortal, goes to meet the judgment of God and awaits its reunion with the body when it will rise transformed at the time of the return of the Lord. How the resurrection of the body will come about exceeds the possibilities of our imagination and understanding."

DAILY COMPENDIUM - 182. What is the mission of the Pope?
880-882
936-937
"The Pope, Bishop of Rome and the Successor of Saint Peter, is the perpetual, visible source and foundation of the unity of the Church.

DAILY COMPENDIUM - 180. How is the collegial dimension of Church ministry carried out?
876-877
"After the example of the twelve Apostles who were chosen and sent out together by Christ, the unity of the Church’s hierarchy is at the service of the communion of all the faithful. Every bishop exercises his ministry as a member of the episcopal college in communion with the Pope and shares with him in the care of the universal Church. Priests exercise their ministry in the presbyterate of the local Church in communion with their own bishop and under his direction."

DAILY COMPENDIUM - 179. Why did Christ institute an ecclesiastical hierarchy?
874-876
935
"Christ instituted an ecclesiastical hierarchy with the mission of feeding the people of God in his name and for this purpose gave it authority. The hierarchy is formed of sacred ministers,; bishops, priests, and deacons. Thanks to the sacrament of Orders, bishops and priests act in the exercise of their ministry in the name and person of Christ the Head. Deacons minister to the people of God in the diakonia (service) of word, liturgy, and charity."

DAILY COMPENDIUM - 175. In what does the mission of the Apostles consist?
858-861
"The Word “Apostle” means “one who is sent”.

He gave them the command to continue his own mission saying, “As the Father has sent me, so I also send you” (John 20:21); and he promised to remain with them until the end of the world."
