GRADE 8 

&

 GRADE 7

Confirmation, 2016

Parents/Guardians 
registration for the 

Sacrament of 

Confirmation will be in 

September 2015. 

This year registration is 

for both grades 8 & 7.

The reason being is the 

Archbishop has decided 

to move Confirmation to 

grade 7. 

The rationale for this 

decision is the idea that 

our young people will be 

less likely to see the 

sacrament of 

Confirmation as 

graduation from the 

Church just as they 

graduate from 

elementary school.

THE SEVENTH COMMANDMENT: 

YOU SHALL NOT STEAL

503. What is set forth by the seventh commandment?

The  7

th 

commandment  requires  respect  for  the 

private  ownership  of  goods,  as  well  as  respect  for 
persons, their property, and the integrity of creation. 
The  Church  also  finds  in  this  Commandment  the 
basis  for  her  social  doctrine  which  involves  the 
correct  way  of  acting  in  economic,  social  and 
political life, the right and the duty of human labor, 
justice and solidarity among nations, and love for the 
poor.

504. Under what conditions does the right to private 

property exist?

The  right  to  private  property  exists  provided  the 
property  is  acquired  or  received  in  a  just  way  and 
that  the  universal  destination  of  goods  for  the 
satisfaction  of  the  basic  needs  of  all  takes 
precedence.

505. What is the purpose of private property?

The purpose of private property is to guarantee the 
freedom  and  dignity  of  individual  persons  by 
helping  them  to  meet  the  basic  needs  of  those  in 
their charge and also of others who are in need.

506. What does the seventh commandment require?

The seventh commandment requires respect for the 
goods  of  others  through  the  practice  of  justice  and 
charity,  temperance  and  solidarity.  In  particular  it 
requires  respect  for  promises  made  and  contracts 
agreed  to,  reparation  for  injustice  committed  and 
restitution  of  stolen  goods,  and  respect  for  the 
integrity  of  creation  by  the  prudent  and  moderate 
use  of  the  mineral,  vegetable,  and  animal  resources 
of the universe with special attention to those species 
which are in danger of extinction.

507. What attitude should people have toward 

animals?

People must treat animals with kindness as creatures 
of God and avoid both excessive love for them and an 
indiscriminate  use  of  them  especially  by  scientific 
experiments  that  go  beyond  reasonable  limits  and 
entail needless suffering for the animals.

508. What is forbidden by the seventh commandment?

Above  all,  the  seventh  commandment  forbids  theft, 
which  is  the  taking  or  using  of  another’s  property 
against the reasonable will of the owner. This can be 
done also by paying unjust wages; by speculation on 
the value of goods in order to gain an advantage to 
the detriment of others; or by the forgery of checks 
or invoices. Also forbidden is tax evasion or business 

fraud; willfully damaging private or public property; 
usury;  corruption;  the  private  abuse  of  common 
goods; work deliberately done poorly; and waste.

512. What would be opposed to the social doctrine of 

the Church?

Opposed  to  the  social  doctrine  of  the  Church  are 
economic and social systems that sacrifice the basic 
rights of persons or that make profit their exclusive 
norm  or  ultimate  end.  For  this  reason  the  Church 
rejects  the  ideologies  associated  in  modern  times 
with  Communism  or  with  atheistic  and  totalitarian 
forms of socialism. But in the practice of capitalism 
the  Church  also  rejects  self-centred  individualism 
and  an  absolute  primacy  of  the  laws  of  the 
marketplace over human labor.

513. What is the meaning of work?

Work  is  both  a  duty  and  a  right  through  which 
human  beings  collaborate  with  God  the  Creator. 
Indeed,  by  working  with  commitment  and 
competence  we  fulfil  the  potential  inscribed  in  our 
nature,  honor  the  Creator’s  gifts  and  the  talents 
received from him, provide for ourselves and for our 
families,  and  serve  the  human  community. 
Furthermore,  by  the  grace  of  God,  work  can  be  a 
means of sanctification and collaboration with Christ 
for the salvation of others.

514. What work does every person have a right?

Access  to  secure  and  honest  employment  must  be 
open  to  all  without  unjust  discrimination  and  with 
respect  for  free  economic  initiative  and  fair 
compensation.

517. What are the duties of workers?

They  must  carry  out  their  work  in  a  conscientious 
way  with  competence  and  dedication,  seeking  to 
resolve any controversies with dialogue. Recourse to 
a  non-violent  strike  is  morally  legitimate  when  it 
appears  to  be  the  necessary  way  to  obtain  a 
proportionate  benefit  and  it  takes  into  account  the 
common good.

520. By what is love for the poor inspired?

Love  for  the  poor  is  inspired  by  the  Gospel  of  the 
Beatitudes  and  by  the  example  of  Jesus  in  his 
constant  concern  for  the  poor.  Jesus  said, 
“Whatever  you  have  done  to  the  least  of  my 
brethren,  you  have  done  to  me”  (Mat25:40).  Love 
for the poor shows itself through the struggle against 
material poverty and also against the many forms of 
cultural,  moral,  and  religious  poverty.  The  spiritual 
and  corporal  works  of  mercy  and  the  many 
charitable  institutions  formed  throughout  the 
centuries  are  a  concrete  witness  to  the  preferential 
love for the poor which characterizes the disciples of 
Jesus.

“TALITHA CUM”

Jesus healed Jairus’ daughter by saying “Talitha 

cum” which means “little girl, get up!”. 

Has the Lord called you to get up and walk? 

Perhaps Jesus wants you to help others get up and 

walk. If you feel God is calling you to priesthood, 

religious life or the diaconate, call Fr. Chris

SAINT OF THE WEEK

Optional Memorial:

 The First Martyrs of the Holy 

Roman Church — Tuesday, June 30: There were 
Christians in Rome within a dozen or so years 
after the death of Jesus, though they were not 
the  converts  of  the  “Apostle  of  the 
Gentiles” (Rom15:20). Paul had not yet visited 
them  at  the  time  he  wrote  his  great  letter 
in 57-58 A.D.

Probably  as  a  result  of  controversy  between 
Jews  and  Jewish  Christians,  the  Emperor 
C l a u d i u s 

expelled  all 

Jews  from 

R o m e  i n 

49-50  A.D. 

S u e t o n i u s 

the  historian 

says  that  the 

e x p u l s i o n 

was  due  to 

disturbances 

in  the  city 

“caused  by 

the  certain 

Chrestus”  [Christ].  Perhaps  many  came  back 
after  Claudius’s  death  in  54  A.D.  Paul’s  letter 
was addressed to a Church with members from 
Jewish and Gentile backgrounds.

In  July  of  64  A.D.,  more  than  half  of  Rome 
was  destroyed  by  fire.  Rumour  blamed  the 
tragedy  on  Nero,  who  wanted  to  enlarge  his 
palace.  He  shifted  the  blame  by  accusing  the 
Christians.  According  to  the  historian  Tacitus, 
many  Christians  were  put  to  death  because  of 
their  “hatred  of  the  human  race.”  Peter  and 
Paul were probably among the victims.

Threatened by an army revolt and condemned 
to death by the senate, Nero committed suicide 
in 68 A.D. at the age of 31.

Comment

:  Wherever  the  Good  News  of  Jesus 

was  preached,  it  met  the  same  opposition  as 
Jesus  did,  and  many  of  those  who  began  to 
follow him shared his suffering and death. But 
no  human  force  could  stop  the  power  of  the 
Spirit unleashed upon the world. The blood of 
martyrs  has  always  been,  and  will  always  be, 
the seed of Christians.

Quote: 

Pope  Clement  I,  third  successor  of  St. 

Peter,  writes:  “It  was  through  envy  and 
jealousy  that  the  greatest  and  most  upright 
pillars  of  the  Church  were  persecuted  and 
struggled unto death.... First of all, Peter, who 

because  of  unreasonable  jealousy  suffered  not 
merely  once  or  twice  but  many  times,  and, 
having thus given his witness, went to the place 
of  glory  that  he  deserved.  It  was  through 
jealousy and conflict that Paul showed the way 
to  the  prize  for  perseverance.  He  was  put  in 
chains seven times, sent into exile, and stoned; 
a  herald  both  in  the  east  and  the  west,  he 
achieved a noble fame by his faith….”

“Around  these  men  with  their  holy  lives  there 
are  gathered  a  great  throng  of  the  elect,  who, 
though  victims  of  jealousy,  gave  us  the  finest 
example  of  endurance  in  the  midst  of  many 
indignities  and  tortures.  Through  jealousy 
women  were  tormented,  like  Dirce  or  the 
daughters  of  Danaus,  suffering  terrible  and 
unholy acts of violence. But they courageously 
finished  the  course  of  faith  and  despite  their 
bodily weakness won a noble prize.”

Jesus

Commentary  1  –  Healing  of  woman,  girl  is 
prompted by faith

Mark concludes his account of the ministry 
of  Jesus  in  Galilee  with  descriptions  of 
some remarkable miracles worked by Jesus 
during  this  ministry.  In  today’s  reading 
Jesus  shows  himself  the  Lord  of  life  and 
death  –  healing  the  woman  ‘who  had 
suffered from a haemorrhage for 12 years’, 
and  bringing  back  to  life  the  young 
daughter  of  one  of  the  elders  of  the  local 
synagogue.

Again,  the  words  of  Jesus  and  Mark’s 
telling  of  the  story  emphasise  the 
importance of ‘faith’ in what is to unfold – a 
trusting  openness  to  the  fact  that,  in  the 
ministry  of  Jesus,  God’s  great  promises  to 
Israel  were  being  fulfilled.  This  faith, 
however,  finds  very  different  expression  in 
the  two  cases.  The  synagogue  official,  well 
versed  in  the  traditions  of  Israel,  and  with 
an openness that expresses the true spirit of 
Israel’s faith, makes his request: ‘Make my 
little daughter better and save her life’. His 
trust  in  what  Jesus  can  do  for  him  is  in 
stark  contrast  with  the  attitude  of  those 

who report that the girl is already dead and 
urge  him  not  to  trouble  Jesus  further,  and 
with the mourners already gathering in his 
home.  The  woman’s  faith  is  less  informed; 
naïve  perhaps,  very  like  the  faith  of  so 
many simple believers. But what she knows 
of  Jesus  inspires  her  to  seek  a  healing  by 
‘touching his clothes’. The reaction of Jesus 
is to lead her to the personal meeting with 
him  that  should  take  place  in  an  authentic 
faith.

From a homily on the Gospel by Fr John Thornhill sm

“Do Not Fear, Only Believe”

ABSTINENCE

Fridays of the Year

It is a requirement of our Faith that we abstain 

from meat on all the Fridays of the year (except on 

Solemnities) in commemoration of our Saviour’s 

death. 

Abstinence on Fridays of the Year

Abstinence on these days from meat does not 

intend the omission of eggs or dairy products.

Age Requirements

"All Catholics who have completed their 

fourteenth year are bound by the law of 

abstinence; all adults are bound by the law of fast 

up to the beginning of their sixtieth year.

“BECAUSE GOD IS REAL”

by Peter Kreeft

Why Must We Die?

6. What will be in heaven Beer? Baseball? Catbirds?Cats?
Obviously,  we  don’t  know,  any  more  than  an 
unborn baby knows what’s in the world outside the 
womb. What we do know is what God has told us: 
that He loves us and has “prepared a place “ for us 
(Jn  14:1-3).  It  is  a  place  for  us.  We  know  this 
much, then: we will not feel forgotten or foreign or 
fearful  but  will  feel  at  home.  And  we  will  be 
perfectly  happy.  “he  will  wipe  away  every  tear 
from their eyes” (Rev 21:4). So if we need beer, or 
baseball,  or  catbirds,  or  cats  for  our  complete 
happiness,  then  they  will  be  there.  God  can  do 
anything.  “With  God  all  things  are  possible”  (Mt 
19:26).

We  know  that  we  will  have  resurrected  bodies  in 
Heaven,  immortal  bodies  like  Jesus  after  His 
Resurrection.  Since  we  will  have  bodies,  we  will 
live a bodily world, a new heaven, and a new earth” 
(Rev21:1).  We  will  not  be  turned  into  Angels, 
which  are  pure  spirits.  And  other  living  things, 
plants  and  animals  or  something  like  plants  and 
animals,  will  probably  not  be  there.  For  God 
designed Heaven for us, remember. We are humans, 
and our humanity will be perfected, not set aside. A 
world without plants and animals seems hardly fit 
for  human  habitation.  So  even  though  the  soul  of 
your cat is not immortal, as your soul is, God may 
well  bring  your  cat  to  life  in  Heaven  to  be  with 
you. He certainly can do that.

Make  a  list  of  all  the  things  you  really  love. 
Everything  in  the  list,  and  much  more,  will  be  in 
Heaven,  though,  in  some  new,  surprising, 
transformed, perfected form. 

But the most important thing about Heaven is not 
what

 will be in Heaven but who; not the things but 

the  people.  Even  on  earth,  things  do  not  make  us 
deeply happy or unhappy only people can do that.

So who will be in Heaven? Everyone who chooses 
to  be,  everyone  who  wants  to  be,  everyone  who 
loves what God is and Heaven is, namely truth and 
love, honesty and unselfishness (Rev 22:17).

And  these  people  will  relate  to  each  other  in 
Heaven in total truth and light and honesty, in total 

love  and  acceptance  and  forgiveness.  For  that  is 
what the life of Heaven will be full of, because that 
is  what  God’s  life  is  full  of.  That  is  why  even  on 
earth these two heavenly things are the two things 
that  make  us  deeply  happy:  truth  and  love.  And 
they  are  also  the  two  thing  that  do  not  ever  get 
boring: knowing and loving.

The  persons  in  Heaven  will  include  not  only 
human beings but also angels, the pure spirits God 
created.  They  are  non-human  persons,  persons 
without bodies. They too are persons because they 
too  can  say,  “I”,  as  God  can.  The  angels  also  can 
know and love God, each other, and us.

In fact, the angels—especially our guardian angels
—know  and  love  us  now.  God  has  appointed  a 
guardian  angel  invisible  to  guard  and  guide  each 
individual  through  that  person’s  entire  life  (Mtt 
18:20).  When  you  get  to  Heaven,  you  meet  and 
thank your angel.

Most important of all, in Heaven we will know and 
be known by God. Deep down, that is what we all 
desire above all, even though we may not think we 
do. We can’t imagine this because we can’t imagine 
God,  and  its  hard  for  us  to  desire  what  we  can’t 
imagine.  Yet  our  hearts  are  deeper  than  our 
imaginations, and our hearts are restless until they 
rest  in  Him  because  He  designed  our  hearts  that 
way.  We  were  designed  to  be  unable  to  find 
perfect,  total  happiness  in  this  world,  even  if  we 
possess the whole world. Each single human heart 
is bigger than the whole world. We long for infinite 
truth, infinite goodness, and infinite beauty, and we 
are  not  totally  satisfied  with  anything  less.  And 
only  God  is  infinite  truth,  infinite  goodness,  and 
infinite beauty.

MARTYRS SHRINE AGAIN!

Saturday, June 4, 2016

The 12:15PM Choir & the Daughters of Isabella 

have volunteered to sponsor our Pilgrimage to 

the Shrine next year. This year’s pilgrimage was 

such a beautiful experience both in terms of the 
spiritual experience and the wonderful grounds 

and fine weather that we want to go again. 

FAST & ABSTINENCE

During Lent

Catholics fast, and abstain from meat on Ash 

Wednesday and Good Friday. 

Fridays of the Year

It is a requirement of our Faith that we abstain 

from meat on all the Fridays of the year (except 

on Solemnities) in commemoration of our 

Saviour’s death. 

The fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. 

The required fast on Ash Wednesday and Good 

Friday involves eating only one full meal on those 

days. One or two smaller meals may be taken on 

those days, but may not total one full meal.  The 

required fast does not allow eating anything 

between meals. 

Abstinence on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday & 

Fridays of the Year

Abstinence on these days from meat does not 

intend the omission of eggs or dairy products.

Age Requirements

"All Catholics who have completed their 

fourteenth year are bound by the law of 

abstinence; all adults are bound by the law of fast 

up to the beginning of their sixtieth year.
