THE DIGNITY OF THE HUMAN 

PERSON

The Human Community

SOCIAL JUSTICE

411. How does society ensure social 

justice?

Society  ensures  social  justice  when  it 
respects  the  dignity  and  the  rights  of  the 
person  as  the  proper  end  of  society  itself. 
Furthermore, society pursues social justice, 
which is linked to the common good and to 
the  exercise  of  authority,  when  it  provides 
the  conditions  that  allow  associations  and 
individuals to obtain what is their due.

412. On what is human equality based?

All  persons  enjoy  equal  dignity  and 
fundamental  rights  insofar  as  they  are 
created  in  the  image  of  the  one  God,  are 
endowed with the same rational soul, have 
the  same  nature  and  origin,  and  are  called 
in  Christ,  the  one  and  only  Savior,  to  the 
same divine beatitude.

413. How are we to view social 

inequalities?

There  are  sinful  social  and  economic 
inequalities which affect millions of human 
beings.  These  inequalities  are  in  open 
contradiction  to  the  Gospel  and  are 
contrary  to  justice,  to  the  dignity  of 
persons, and to peace. There are , however, 
differences among people caused by various 
factors  which  enter  into  the  plan  of  God. 
Indeed,  God  wills  that  each  might  receive 
what he or she needs from others and that 
those  endowed  with  particular  talents 
should  share  them  with  others.  Such 
differences  encourage  and  often  oblige 
people  to  the  practice  of  generosity, 
kindness  and  the  sharing  of  goods.  They 
also  foster  the  mutual  enrichment  of 
cultures.

414. How is human solidarity 

manifested?

Solidarity,  which  springs  from  human  and 
Christian brotherhood, is manifested in the 
first place by the just distribution of goods, 
by a fair remuneration for work and by zeal 
for  a  more  just  social  order.  The  virtue  of 
solidarity  also  practices  the  sharing  of  the 
spiritual goods of faith which is even more 
important than sharing material goods.

Compendium—OF THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

PART THREE: LIFE IN CHRIST

FR SEAMUS HOGAN

Welcome

to

St John XXIII Parish

Fr Seamus is a professor of theology 

at St Augustine’s Seminary and will 

preach at all our Masses this 

weekend.

Father comes to us for a specific 

purpose, to call us to the mission of 

the Church: primarily his call is that 

of Jesus’ call—“Come and See”.

In other words, Jesus’ message is 

“Come follow me”. How are we 

know to follow Jesus? Only if He is 
heard. How will He be heard? Only 

if He is preached. Who will preach?

Those who are called to be priests.

How will our young men know they 

are called? By the encouragement 

of parents, family, parishioners and 

priests.

Above all by prayer, that God 

will give us good priests.

The Way Named Straight

Tarsus, Province of Syria

My Dear Corinthians:

I, Paul, by the will of God an Apostle, having 

written twice to you on several matters of 

great importance now find myself compelled 

to write a third time.

I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it 

any more.

SHAPE UP!

Paul, by the grace of God, Apostle to the 

Gentiles

Jesuit Joke

Sts Dominic, Francis and Ignatius of Loyola 

are transported back in time and place to the 

Birth of Our Lord.

St Dominic, seeing the Incarnation of the 

Word, is sent into ecstasy.

St Francis, seeing God become a helpless 

child, is overcome with humility.

St Ignatius of Loyola takes St Joseph and 

Our Lady aside and asks "Have you given any 

thought to His education?"

SAINT OF THE WEEK

Optional  Memorial:  St  Kateri  Tekakwitha 
(1656-1680)—Virgin,  
Friday,  April  17.  
The  blood  of 
martyrs  is  the  seed  of  saints.  Nine  years  after  the 
Jesuits Isaac Jogues and John de Brébeuf (Oct 19) 
were tomahawked by Iroquois warriors, a baby girl 
was  born  near  the  place  of  their  martyrdom, 
Auriesville, New York.

Her  mother  was  a  Christian  Algonquin,  taken 
captive  by  the  Iroquois  and  given  as  wife  to  the 
chief of the Mohawk clan, the boldest and fiercest of 
the  Five  Nations.  When  she  was  four,  Kateri  lost 
h e r  p a r e n t s 

a n d  l i t t l e 

brother  in  a 

s m a l l p o x 

epidemic  that 

l e f t 

h e r 

disfigured  and 

half  blind.  She 

was  adopted 

by  an  uncle, 

w

h

succeeded  her 

father as chief. 

He  hated  the 

coming  of  the 

B l a c k r o b e s 

( J e s u i t 

missionaries), 

but  could  do 

n o t h i n g  t o 

them  because  a  peace  treaty  with  the  French 
required  their  presence  in  villages  with  Christian 
captives.  She  was  moved  by  the  words  of  three 
Blackrobes  who  lodged  with  her  uncle,  but  fear  of 
him kept her from seeking instruction. She refused 
to marry a Mohawk brave and at 19 finally got the 
courage  to  take  the  step  of  converting.  She  was 
baptized  with  the  name  Kateri  (Catherine)  on 
Easter Sunday.

Now  she  would  be  treated  as  a  slave.  Because  she 
would  not  work  on  Sunday,  she  received  no  food 
that day. Her life in grace grew rapidly. She told a 
missionary  that  she  often  meditated  on  the  great 
dignity  of  being  baptized.  She  was  powerfully 
moved by God’s love for human beings and saw the 
dignity of each of her people.

She  was  always  in  danger,  for  her  conversion  and 
holy life created great opposition. On the advice of a 
priest,  she  stole  away  one  night  and  began  a  200-
mile walking journey to a Christian Indian village at 
Sault St. Louis, near Montreal.

For  three  years  she  grew  in  holiness  under  the 
direction  of  a  priest  and  an  older  Iroquois  woman, 
giving herself totally to God in long hours of prayer, 
in charity and in strenuous penance. At 23 she took 
a  vow  of  virginity,  an  unprecedented  act  for  an 
Indian  woman,  whose  future  depended  on  being 
married. She found a place in the woods where she 
could  pray  an  hour  a  day—and  was  accused  of 
meeting a man there!

Her dedication to virginity was instinctive: She did 
not  know  about  religious  life  for  women  until  she 
visited  Montreal.  Inspired  by  this,  she  and  two 
friends  wanted  to  start  a  community,  but  the  local 
priest  dissuaded  her.  She  humbly  accepted  an 
“ordinary”  life.  She  practiced  extremely  severe 
fasting as penance for the conversion of her nation. 
She  died  the  afternoon  before  Holy  Thursday. 
Witnesses  said  that  her  emaciated  face  changed 
color  and  became  like  that  of  a  healthy  child.  The 
lines of suffering, even the pockmarks, disappeared 
and  the  touch  of  a  smile  came  upon  her  lips.  She 
was beatified in 1980 and canonized in 2012.

Quote: 

Kateri said: “I am not my own; I have given 

myself to Jesus. He must be my only love. The state 
of  helpless  poverty  that  may  befall  me  if  I  do  not 
marry does not frighten me. All I need is a little food 
and  a  few  pieces  of  clothing.  With  the  work  of  my 
hands  I  shall  always  earn  what  is  necessary  and 
what is left over I’ll give to my relatives and to the 
poor.  If  I  should  become  sick  and  unable  to  work, 
then  I  shall  be  like  the  Lord  on  the  cross.  He  will 
have mercy on me and help me, I am sure.”

“Commentary 1 – We can see with our other senses
“The  timely  recollection  of  the  ‘eight  days  after,’ 
which is the Sunday after the Resurrection, permits 
us to tie our reflection to one of the most significant 
Eucharistic hymns composed by another Thomas, St 
Thomas  Aquinas.  In  the  Adore  Te  Devote,  which 
refers to the Eucharist, we read: ‘Sight, touch, taste 
are  all  deceived  in  their  judgement  of  you.  But 
hearing  suffices  firmly  to  believe’.  Combining  these 
words with today’s Gospel we can justly affirm that 
the experience ‘to see’ was not denied to us, but it is 
in  contrast  with  the  Apostle  Thomas’  physical 
experience, who was able to put his own finger into 
the  holes  in  Christ’s  hands  and  side,  whilst  we  can 
only  comprehend  it  in  the  faith  which  is  guarded 
and  transmitted  by  the  Church,  our  Mother  and 
Teacher.

“That  which  we  ‘have  not  seen’  is  therefore  the 
glorious Body of the Risen One. However, today we 
have  the  ability  to  ‘listen’  to  the  Word  of  God  and 
the Magisterium of the Church and so we can ‘see’ 
the real Body of Christ which is the Eucharist. We 
can  ‘see’  His  Mystical  Body  which  is  the  Church. 
We can ‘see’ Him in our lives and in the lives of our 
many  brothers  and  sisters  who,  after  meeting  the 
Lord in a real but mysterious way, are united to Him 
in His Spirit!

“Like Thomas, Christ calls us to fill the holes left by 
the instruments of the passion in His Body with our 
own  hands  so  that  our  lives  and  the  verbal  witness 
that we give proclaim His Resurrection. Our senses 
could betray us, but we know that we have met the 
Risen One and we have recognized Him!”

-This is an extract from a reflection on the Congregation for the Clergy website.

 

Commentary  2  –  Finding  forgiveness,  finding 

friendship
“St John's gospel, written long after the other three 
gospels,  is  a  meditation  upon  the  events  of  the 
Saviour's life filled with Resurrection light. It is not 
surprising, therefore, that the gospel readings for the 
Sundays of the Easter season are from the Gospel of 
John.    Today's  readings  are  a  celebration  of  the 
Resurrection  faith  that  makes  it  possible  to  know 
and enter into the Paschal Mystery. They come to a 
climax with the story of how the original ‘doubting 
Thomas’ found faith.

“This gospel invites us to share the experience of the 
disciples,  finding  faith  through  the  coming  of  the 
Lord  into  their  midst  on  the  evening  of  his 
Resurrection Day.  What a dramatic situation – they 
are  to  meet  the  one  whom  they  have  deserted  and 
abandoned to his fate. There is no word of reproach, 
no reference to what has taken place, only ‘Peace be 
with  you’  and  again  ‘Peace  be  with  you’  –  you  are 
forgiven, come once more into my friendship.  Their 
finding  faith  is  a  meeting  with  God's  generous  and 
reconciling  love.  And  he  sends

 

them  forth  with  the 

good news of the forgiveness of sins.

“For  many,  faith  does  not  come  easy  and  they  are 
helped  by  the  testimony  that  echoes  down  through 
the  centuries  of  hard  headed  Thomas  -  as  he  owns 
that  it  is  indeed  the  crucified  one  -  the  one  who 
shared  the  deepest  darkness  of  the  world  we  have 
made  –  to  whom  we  can  entrust  ourselves,  as  our 
‘Lord’ and our ‘God’.

“Authentic  Resurrection  faith  awakens  a  sense  of 
responsibility  and  brings  a  call  to  mission:  ‘As  the 
Father sent me, so am I sending you’.”

-From a homily by Fr John Thornhill sm

“BECAUSE GOD IS REAL”

by Peter Kreeft

Why Is There Evil?

2. What is the Church’s answer to evil?

The  Church’s  answer  to  the  problem  of  evil  is 
Jesus Christ.

There are two problems of evil: in thought and 
in  life.  The  problem  of  evil  in  thought  is  an 
argument, the argument for atheism: the reality 
of  evil  seems  to  prove  the  unreality  of  God  If 
God  was  real,  He  would  wipe  out  all  evil.  but 
evil exists. Therefore, God is not real.

That is an important argument, and it has to be 
answered, and we will answer it in a little while. 
But  the  most  important  problem  of  evil  is  not 
the  thought-problem  but  the  life-problem. 
When you are sick, the main problem is not just 
solving  of  sickness  in  thought,  but  in  life,  not 
just  understanding  why  you  are  sick  and  how 
you got sick, but being cured.

Jesus  has  solved  the  problem  of  evil  there
where it hurts most: not just in thought but in 
life. He did this not just by teaching about evil 
but  actually  entering  into  evil,  on  the  Cross,  by 
suffering  the  worst  of  evils  from  the  worst  of 
people and by using that suffering and death, to 
make the evils of suffering and death work for 
good,  for  our  salvation.  Christ  made  His 
suffering 

of evil part of our salvation from evil.

That  is  the  Church’s  answer  to  the  problem  of 
evil. The Church gives us Jesus’ answer to the 
problem  of  evil.  And  Jesus’  answer  to  the 
problem of evil is Jesus. Not just the teaching of 
Jesus, but Jesus; not just “This is My mind” but 
“This is My Body”. And He did not say, “Take 
and understand” but “Take and eat”.

2.  What  is  the  solution  to  the  problem  of  evil  in 
thought?

Everyone has deal with evil in practice. It’s part 
of  our  world.  But  Christians  also  have  to  deal 
with  the  additional  problem  of  evil  in  thought
evil seems to disprove God. If you don’t believe 
in  God,  you  can  just  say  “evil  happens”  and 

leave  it  at  that.  If  there  is  no  God,  there  is  no 
contradiction between evil and God. But if God 
is real, and evil is also real, there is apparently a 
contradiction between God and evil.

The  problem  is  this:  If  God  is  all-good,  He 
wants only good; and if He is all-powerful, He 
gets everything He wants. So why is there still 
evil?  It  seems  that  it  must  be  either  because 
God  is  not  all-good  or  because  He  is  not  all-
powerful.

Part  of  the  answer  to  this  question  is  that  we 
made  evil,  not  God.  We  freely  chose  it.  God 
created our fee will, but He did not create evil.

Another  part  of  the  answer  is  that  God  brings 
good even out of evil, but He does it gradually. 
We are in a story, not in an instant formula or 
equation.  The  story  is  called  human  history. 
History  is  really  His-story”.  But  we  haven’t 
gotten  to  the  part  where  they  all  live  happily 
ever after.

Another  part  of  the  answer  is  that  God  brings 
good  out  of  evil  not  against  our  will  but  with 
our  will,  by  using  our  free  choices  of  good  as 
His  instruments,  by  using  us  as  His 
instruments, His warriors, His soldiers of love.

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.
