Roman Catholic devotions

are "external practices of piety" which are not part of the official liturgy of the Catholic Church but are part of the popular spiritual practices of Catholics. Catholic devotions do not become part of liturgical worship, even if they are performed within a Catholic church, in a group, in the presence of a priest.

The Two Swords of the Church
These two types of authority by the Church are symbolically represented by the two swords of the Gospel: “So they said, ‘Lord, behold, there are two swords here.’ But he said to them, ‘It is sufficient.’ ” Lk 22:38. The Church has the authority to teach doctrine, on matters of faith, morals, and salvation. But the Church also has temporal authority, so that She can make practical decisions, discipline needed to function as a Church within the world, as a Church whose members on earth are sinners.

He also reminded godparents that their duty is not to give gifts, but to help parents in raising their children.
Organizers said they want to dispel the notion that Catholics need to pay for the sacraments – which, they said, keeps the poor away from baptism.
