25 Phrases from the CCC Worth Memorizing -- Can you learn 3?

To start the New Year right, why not make a small resolution to memorize just 3 lines of the Catechism of the Catholic Church?  Surely everyone can memorize three lines or phrases right?

Here's a few suggestions from my latest on Catholic Exchange:

CCC 27 The desire for God is written in the human heart.
CCC 68  By love, God has revealed himself and given himself to man. He has thus provided the definitive, superabundant answer to the questions that man asks himself about the meaning and purpose of his life.
CCC 70 The Son is his Father's definitive Word; so there will be no further Revelation after him. 
CCC 435 The name of Jesus is at the heart of Christian prayer. 
CCC 658 Christ, "the first-born from the dead" (Col 1:18), is the principle of our own resurrection, even now by the justification of our souls (cf. Rom 6:4), and one day by the new life he will impart to our bodies (cf.: Rom 8:11). 
CCC 682 When he comes at the end of time to judge the living and the dead, the glorious Christ will reveal the secret disposition of hearts and will render to each man according to his works, and according to his acceptance or refusal of grace. 
CCC 780 The Church in this world is the sacrament of salvation, the sign and the instrument of the communion of God and men. 
CCC 826 Charity is the soul of the holiness to which all are called: it "governs, shapes, and perfects all the means of sanctification [Lumen Gentium, 42].” 
CCC 982 There is no offense, however serious, that the Church cannot forgive.

Go read the rest!
