THE DIGNITY OF THE HUMAN 

PERSON

The Human Community

THE PERSON AND SOCIETY

401. In what does the social dimension of 

man consist?

Together with the personal call to beatitude, the 
human person has a communal dimension as an 
essential component of his nature and vocation. 
Indeed,  all  are  called  to  the  same  end,  God 
himself.  Love  of  neighbor  is  inseparable  from 
love for God.

402. What is the relationship between the 

person and society?

The  human  person  is  and  ought  to  be  the 
principle,  the  subject  and  the  end  of  all  social 
institutions. Certain societies, such as the family 
and the civic community, are necessary for the 
human  person.  Also  helpful  are  other 
associations  on  the  national  and  international 
levels  with  due  respect  for  the  principle  of 
subsidiarity.

403. What is the principle of subsidiarity?

The  principle  of  subsidiarity  states  that  a 
community of a higher order should not assume 
the  task  belonging  to  a  community  of  a  lower 
order  and  deprive  it  of  its  authority.  It  should 
rather support it in case of need.

404. What else is required for an authentic 

human society?

Authentic  human  society  requires  respect  for 
justice,  a  just  hierarchy  of  values,  and  the 
subordination  of  material  and  instinctual 
dimensions  to  interior  and  spiritual  ones.  In 
particular,  where  sin  has  perverted  the  social 
climate, it is necessary to call for the conversion 
of  hearts  and  for  the  grace  of  God  to  obtain 
social  changes  that  may  really  serve  each 
person  and  the  whole  person.  Charity,  which 
requires  and  makes  possible  the  practice  of 
justice, is the greatest social commandment.

PARTICIPATION IN SOCIAL LIFE

405. What is the foundation of the authority 

of society?

Every  human  community  needs  a  legitimate 
authority  that  preserves  order  and  contributes 
to  the  realization  of  the  common  good.  The 

foundation  of 
such  authority 

l i e s  i n  h u m a n 

nature  because  it  corresponds  to  the  order 
established by God.

406. When is authority exercised in a 

legitimate way?

Authority is exercised legitimately when it acts 
for  the  common  good  and  employs  morally 
lawful  means  to  attain  it.  Therefore,  political 
regimes  must  be  determined  by  the  free 
decision  of  their  citizens.  They  should  respect 
the  principle  of  the  “rule  of  law”  in  which  the 
law,  and  not  the  arbitrary  will  of  some,  is 
sovereign.  Unjust  laws  and  measures  contrary 
to  the  moral  order  are  not  binding  in 
conscience.

407. What is the common good?

By the common good is meant the sum total of 
those  conditions  of  social  life  which  allow 
people  as  groups  and  as  individuals  to  reach 
their proper fulfillment.

408. What is involved in the common good?

The  common  good  involves:  respect  for  and 
promotion  of  the  fundamental  rights  of  the 
person,  the  development  of  the  spiritual  and 
temporal goods of persons and society, and the 
peace and security of all.

409. Where can one find the most complete 

realization of the common good?

The  most  complete  realization  of  the  common 
good  is  found  in  those  political 

communities 

which defend and promote the 

good of their 

citizens  and  of  intermediate  groups  without 
forgetting  the  universal  good  of  the  entire 
human family.

410. How does one participate in bringing 

about the common good?

All men and women according to the place and 
role  that  they  occupy  participate  in  promoting 
the common good by respecting

 just laws and 

taking  charge  of  the  areas  for  which  they 
have  personal  responsibility  such  as  the 
care  of  their  own  family  and  the 
commitment  to  their  own  work.  Citizens 
also should take an active part in public life 
as far as possible.

BOILER REPLACEMENT

Your Finance Council & the Building Committee 

of John XXIII Parish, and the Archdiocese have 

approved the Parish’s plans to replace its forty 

year old boiler for heating of the Church.

Cost of replacement boilers (3 small high 

efficiency boilers) plus a new hot water tank will 

be $ 62,000.00. Funding will come from the gift 

of $80,000. received by the parish a fews ago.

Heating cost savings are expected to be 

substantial with these new boilers along with the 

smart technology which allows the building to be 

kept at a cooler temperature when not in use.

Job will begin as soon as winter is over.

Expect noise!

THE EASTER SEASON

It Begins With The The Celebration Of The 

Easter Vigil 

Easter  is  the  greatest  feast  in  the  Christian 
calendar.  On  this  Sunday,  Christians  celebrate 
the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 
For Catholics, Easter Sunday comes at the end 
of  40  days  of  prayer,  fasting,  and  almsgiving 
known as Lent. Through spiritual struggle and 
self-denial,  we  have  prepared  ourselves  to  die 
spiritually with Christ on Good Friday, the day 
of  His  Crucifixion,  so  that  we  can  rise  again 
with Him in new life on Easter.

Easter  is  a  day  of  celebration  because  it 
represents  the  fulfillment  of  our  faith  as 
C h r i s t i a n s . 

S t .  P a u l 

wrote  that, 

unless  Christ 

rose  from  the 

d e a d ,  o u r 

f a i t h  i s  i n

( 1 

C o r 1 5 : 1 7 ) . 

Through  his 

death,  Christ

bondage  to 

sin,  and  He 

destroyed  the 

h o l d  t h a t 

death  has  on 

all of us; but it 

is His Resurrection that gives us the promise of 
new life, both in this world and the next.

The Coming of the Kingdom: 

That new life began 

on Easter Sunday. In the Our Father, we pray 
that  "Thy  Kingdom  come,  on  earth  as  it  is  in 
Heaven."  And  Christ  told  His  disciples  that 
some of them would not die until they saw the 
Kingdom  of  God  "coming  in  power"  (Mk9:1). 
The  early  Christian  Fathers  saw  Easter  as  the 
fulfillment  of  that  promise.  With  the 
resurrection  of  Christ,  God's  Kingdom  is 
established on earth, in the form of the Church. 

New  Life  in  Christ

:  That  is  why  people  who  are 

converting  to  Catholicism  traditionally  are 
baptized  at  the  Easter  Vigil  service,  which 
takes  place  on  Holy  Saturday  (the  day  before 
Easter),  starting  sometime  after  sunset.  They 
have usually undergone a long process of study 
and preparation known as the Rite of Christian 
Initiation  for  Adults  (RCIA).  Their  baptism 
parallels Christ's own Death and Resurrection, 
as  they  die  to  sin  and  rise  to  new  life  in  the 
Kingdom of God.

Our  Easter  Duty: 

Because  of  the  central 

importance of Easter to the Christian faith, the 
Catholic  Church  requires  that  all  Catholics 
who have made their First Communion receive 
the Holy Eucharist sometime during the Easter 
season, which lasts through Pentecost, 50 days 
after Easter. (The Church also urges us to take 
part  in  the  Sacrament  of  Confession  before 
receiving  this  Easter  communion.)  This 
reception  of  the  Eucharist  is  a  visible  sign  of 
our faith and our participation in the Kingdom 
of  God.  Of  course,  we  should  receive 
Communion  as  frequently  as  possible;  this 
"Easter  Duty"  is  simply  the  minimum 
requirement set by the Church.

Commentary –Time to look forward “with hope”

“The  days  after  Easter  have  a  remarkable 
atmosphere.  The  Church’s  mood  is  not  one  of 
exuberant  triumph,  but  one  of  wonder  and 
calm.  Faith  must  come  to  terms  with  the  new 
creation  brought  into  existence  by  the  Paschal 
Mystery. And it is impossible to forget the price 
that  has  been  paid:  the  one  who  ‘went  about 
doing good’ has died ‘hanging on a tree’.

“Though  they  proclaim  realities  which  are 
incomparable  in  their  greatness  and 
importance, the Church’s liturgies do not strive 
to  impress  by  creating  effect.  Only  faith  can 
fully  appreciate  the  motivation  that  brought 
them into existence; they are a reflection of the 
Church’s living response to what God has done 
for  us.  A  group  of  people  who  have  come 
through  a  great  ordeal  or  an  extraordinary 
experience will often find themselves in a mood 
of  calm,  reflection  and  gratitude.  The  liturgies 
of Easter Week have such a mood.

“With Peter, in the first reading, we look back 
upon  the  gospel  story  that  has  led  up  to  the 
great  event  in  which  we  have  been  given  to 
share.  Peter  recalls  the  ministry  of  Jesus 
‘anointed with the Holy Spirit and with power’ 

and his tragic death; and as a privileged witness 
he announces the Lord’s resurrection, to be ‘the 
judge  of  the  living  and  the  dead’,  the  one 
witnessed to by ‘all the prophets’.

“With  Paul,  in  the  second  reading,  we  look 
forward  with  a  hope  that  has  no  bounds.  The 
destiny which is ours through the power of the 
Saviour’s resurrection invites us to ‘look for the 
things  that  are  in  heaven’,  because  the  life  we 
now have ‘is hidden with Christ in God’.

“In the gospel reading - the story of Peter and 
the beloved disciple running to the empty tomb 
- the Church of the Apostles acknowledges that 
faith  does  not  come  easily:  only  a  generous 
openness  to  God  will  find  faith  in  the  Risen 
Lord. This openness is linked especially with a 
knowledge  of  God’s  ways  to  be  found  in  ‘the 
teaching of scripture’.

“The  renewal  of  baptismal  promises,  which  is 
customary at the Easter Day Mass, invites us to 
reflect  upon  the  immense  implications  of  our 
sharing  in  the  Saviour’s  risen  life,  for  the  sake 
of the whole world.”

THE OCTAVE OF EASTER

Some  feasts  in  the  Church  are  honoured  with 
octaves, eight days of celebration that allow the 
faithful  to  more  deeply  contemplate  the 
mysteries of the feast day and more fully apply 
them to their lives. Octaves don’t play nearly as 
large a role in the Church as they have in years 
past,  and  many  Catholics  may  not  know 
anything about them. Here are some interesting 
facts about these hidden treasures of our Faith:

1

Octaves date all the way to the 

Old Testament. The Jewish people would often 
honour  a  feast  for  seven  days,  followed  by  a 
solemnity  on  the  eighth  day.  Baby  boys  were 
circumcised on the eighth day and it took eight 
days to dedicate the Temple.

2

The  first  Christian  octaves  on 

record  were  eight  days  of  celebration  for  the 
dedication  of  the  basilicas  at  Jerusalem  and 
Tyre  in  the  fourth  century.  The  first  feasts  to 
receive  annual  octaves  were  Easter  and 
Pentecost, also in the fourth century.

3

The  number  of  octaves  grew 

throughout the Middle Ages until Pope St. Pius 
V  reduced  them  in  1568.  He  also  classified 
Pentecost  and  Easter  as  “specially  privileged” 
octaves,  during  which  no  other  feast  could  be 
celebrated.  Christmas,  Epiphany  and  Corpus 
Christi  were  “privileged,”  allowing  for  the 
celebration only of major feasts.

4

Many  saints’  feasts  were 

celebrated  with  octaves,  including  Sts.  Peter 
and  Paul,  St.  Lawrence,  St.  John  the  Baptist, 
St. Joseph and St. Agnes.

5

For  the  first  half  of  the  20th 

century  there  were  still  approximately  15 
octaves  celebrated,  classified  into  different 
groups.  Certain  additional  octaves  were  often 
celebrated at a local level.

6

Pope  Pius  XII  reduced  the 

number  of  octaves  to  three,  for  Christmas, 
Easter and Pentecost, in 1955.

7

In  1969,  under  Pope  Paul  VI, 

the  number  came  down  even  further,  to  its 
current  level  of  two.  Today  the  Church 
celebrates  octaves  only  for  Christmas  and 
Easter.

8

The  octave  of  Christmas 

contains  many  universal  feasts,  such  as  the 
feasts  of  St.  Stephen,  St.  John  and  the  Holy 
Innocents,  as  well  as  the  Feast  of  the  Holy 
Family, and of Mary the Mother of God on the 
eighth  day.  By  contrast,  the  only  other  feast 
celebrated during the octave of Easter is Divine 
Mercy  Sunday,  which  falls  on  the  Octave 
(eighth) Day.

Although the liturgical calendar is not as full of 
octaves as it was during the Middle Ages, they 
are  an  important  part  of  our  history.  And  the 
octaves  we  still  celebrate  offer  us  a  wonderful 
opportunity  to  more  fully  experience  the  Birth

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.
