PRAY FOR ST JOHN XXIII 

CHURCH

That We Become The Only Church At 

This Site

Dear Friends,

Last  year  was  40  years  to  the  year, 
1974, that this Church was built. Last 
year,  2014,  our  Presbyterian  friends 
informed  St  John  XXIII  that  they 
were  going  to  pull  out  of  150 
Gateway Blvd. This they have done.

You  have  been  praying  for  this  to 
happen  for  these  40  years  —  the 
people  of  Israel  wondered  in  the 
desert  for  40  years  being  purified; 
Jesus was in the desert fasting for 40 
days  in  preparation  for  his  ministry 
— our 40 years of purifying prayer is 
now being answered. 

Significantly,  St  John  XXIII  was 
made  a  saint  last  year  at  the 
completion of this 40 years of prayer! 

Without doubt, God is promising 

something to us through these events.

The  final  step,  is  to  have  the  city  re-
designate  150  Gateway  Blvd  as  a 
“single”  worship  site.  If  this  is  not 
done,  the  city  can  force  us  to  accept 
another church here. This negotiation 
is now beginning.

THE DIGNITY OF THE HUMAN 

PERSON

THE MORALITY OF THE PASSIONS

370. What are the passions?

The  passions  are  the  feelings,  the  emotions  or 
the movements of the sensible appetite - natural 
components  of  human  psychology  -  which 
incline a person to act or not to act in view of 
what is perceived as good or evil. The principal 
passions  are  love  and  hatred,  desire  and  fear, 
joy,  sadness,  and  anger.  The  chief  passion  is 
love  which  is  drawn  by  the  attraction  of  the 
good.  One  can  only  love  what  is  good,  real  or 
apparent.

371. Are the passions morally good or bad?

The passions insofar as they are movements of 
the  sensible  appetite  are  neither  good  nor  bad 
in  themselves.  They  are  good  when  they 
contribute to a good action and they are evil in 
the opposite case. They can be taken up into the 
virtues or perverted by the vices.

THE MORAL CONSCIENCE

372. What is the moral conscience?

Moral  conscience,  present  in  the  heart  of  the 
person,  is  a  judgment  of  reason  which  at  the 
appropriate moment enjoins us to do good and 
to  avoid  evil.  Thanks  to  moral  conscience,  the 
human person perceives the moral quality of an 
act to be done or which has already been done, 
permitting  us  to  assume  responsibility  for  the 
act.  When  attentive  to  moral  conscience,  the 
prudent person can hear the voice of God who 
speaks to him or her.

373. What does the dignity of the human person 

imply for the moral conscience?

The  dignity  of  a  human  person  requires  the 
uprightness of a moral conscience (which is to 
say  that  it  be  in  accord  with  what  is  just  and 
good according to reason and the law of God). 
Because of this personal dignity, no one may be 
forced to act contrary to conscience; nor, within 
the  limits  of  the  common  good,  be  prevented 
from  acting  according  to  it,  especially  in 
religious matters.

374. How is a moral conscience formed to be 

upright and truthful?

An upright and true moral conscience is formed 
by  education  and  by  assimilating  the  Word  of 
God  and  the  teaching  of  the  Church.  It  is 
supported  by  the  gifts  of  the  Holy  Spirit  and 
helped by the advice of wise people. Prayer and 
an  examination  of  conscience  can  also  greatly 
assist one’s moral formation.

375. What norms must conscience always follow?

There  are  three  general  norms:  1)  one  may 
never do evil so that good may result from it; 2) 
the so-called Golden Rule, “Whatever you wish 
that men would do to you, do so to them” (Mat 
7:12);  3)  charity  always  proceeds  by  way  of 
respect for one’s neighbour and his conscience, 
even  though  this  does  not  mean  accepting  as 
good something that is objectively evil.

376. Can a moral conscience make erroneous 

judgments?

A  person  must  always  obey  the  certain 
judgment  of  his  own  conscience  but  he  could 
make erroneous judgments for reasons that may 
not  always  exempt  him  from  personal  guilt. 
However,  an  evil  act  committed  through 
involuntary  ignorance  is  not  imputable  to  the 
person, even though the act remains objectively 
evil.  One  must  therefore  work  to  correct  the 
errors of moral conscience.

SAINT OF THE WEEK

Solemnity,  St  Joseph,  Spouse  of  the  Blessed  Virgin 

Mary:  Thursday,  March  19  —  Patron  of  the  Universal 
Church,  Principal  Patron  of  Canada: 

The  Bible  pays 

Joseph  the  highest  compliment:  he  was  a  “just” 
man. The quality meant a lot more than faithfulness 
in paying debts.

When the Bible speaks of God “justifying” someone, 
it means that God, the all-holy or “righteous” One, 
so  transforms  a  person  that  the  individual  shares 
somehow  in  God’s  own  holiness,  and  hence  it  is 
really  “right”  for  God  to  love  him  or  her.  In  other 
words,  God  is  not  playing  games,  acting  as  if  we 
were lovable when we are not.

By  saying  Joseph  was  “just,”  the  Bible  means  that 
he was one who was completely open to all that God 
wanted  to  do  for  him.  He  became  holy  by  opening 
himself totally to God.

The rest we can easily surmise. Think of the kind of 
love  with  which  he  wooed  and  won  Mary,  and  the 
depth of the love they shared during their marriage.

It  is  no  contradiction  of  Joseph’s  manly  holiness 
that  he  decided 

to  divorce  Mary 

when  she  was 

found  to  be  with 

c h i l d .  T h e 

important  words 

of  the  Bible  are 

that  he  planned 

t o  d o  t h i s 

“quietly” because 

h e  w a s  “ a 

righteous  man, 

yet  unwilling  to 

expose  her  to 

shame” (Matthew 

1:19).

The  just  man  was  simply,  joyfully,  wholeheartedly 
obedient  to  God—in  marrying  Mary,  in  naming 
Jesus, in shepherding the precious pair to Egypt, in 
bringing  them  to  Nazareth,  in  the  undetermined 
number of years of quiet faith and courage.

Comment:

 The Bible tells us nothing of Joseph in the 

years  after  the  return  to  Nazareth  except  the 
incident  of  finding  Jesus  in  the  Temple  (see  Luke 
2:41–51).  Perhaps  this  can  be  taken  to  mean  that 
God wants us to realize that the holiest family was 
like every other family, that the circumstances of life 
for the holiest family were like those of every family, 
so  that  when  Jesus’  mysterious  nature  began  to 
appear,  people  couldn’t  believe  that  he  came  from 
such  humble  beginnings:  “Is  he  not  the  carpenter’s 
son?  Is  not  his  mother  named  Mary...?”  (Matthew 

13:55a).  It  was  almost  as  indignant  as  “Can 
anything good come from Nazareth?” (John 1:46b).

Quote:

 “He was chosen by the eternal Father as the 

trustworthy  guardian  and  protector  of  his  greatest 
treasures,  namely,  his  divine  Son  and  Mary, 
Joseph’s  wife.  He  carried  out  this  vocation  with 
complete fidelity until at last God called him, saying: 
‘Good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your 

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.

St John

Commentary 1 – Looking to snakes for a cure to 
the bite of sin
“When he speaks of Moses lifting up a serpent 
in  the  desert,  Jesus  is  referring  to  an  episode 
during  the  Exodus  when  people  were  being 
bitten by deadly poisonous snakes. Many died - 
but  those  who  looked  the  bronze  snake  that 
Moses lifted up survived.

“The  action  of  Moses  found  its  fulfilment  in 
Jesus.  To  a  culture  so  opposed  to  “graven 
images”, the episode with the serpent must have 
seemed hard to understand. Put in the context 
of the death of Jesus, it found its fulfilment - its 
meaning.

“Humanity is, in effect, struck down by sin. We 
can’t escape it. Those bitten by snakes couldn’t 
avoid  that  either  -  but,  by  looking  upon  the 
brass  snake  on  a  staff,  they  were  cured  of  the 
effects of the bite. We are stricken by sin - and 
what Jesus is saying in today’s Gospel is that he 
himself  becomes  the  ‘snake  on  a  staff’  -  he 
himself becomes our sin crucified.”

A reflection on the Gospel by Catherine McElhinney and Kathryn Turner.

Commentary  2  –  Being  faithful  shows  you  have 
seen the light
“John came back to the notion of light, implied 
with  the  image  of  sight  in  3:14.  The  ‘light’  of 
course,  was  God's  Son.  However,  one  cannot 
necessarily equate the presence of the ‘light’ to 
the appearance of the historic Jesus. In John 1, 

God's Word (another symbol for the Son) was 
the  instrument  of  creation  and  existed  in  the 
w o r l d  b e f o r e  t h e  ‘ Wo r d  w a s  m a d e 
flesh’ (John1:14). Abraham, Moses, David, the 
prophets, all heard God's Word. But the Word 
took definitive form in flesh.

“So, the ‘light’ came into the world and existed 
with  God's  people  throughout  history.  He 
revealed  himself  completely  as  Jesus  of 
Nazareth.  But  throughout  history,  people 
rejected the ‘light’ because of the evil they did. 
In fact, these people feared the ‘light’, because it 
would  reveal  what  they  have  really  done.  The 
truth  would  be  known.  But,  those  who  are 
faithful, perform acts of faith and charity (deeds 
in  ‘God’)  because  of  their  orientation.  They 
have nothing to hide. They stand as if the final 
judgment had already occurred.

“As a final note, Nicodemus came to see Jesus 
in the dark, fearing his fellow Pharisees. In his 
peers'  eyes,  such  a  meeting  was  dishonorable. 
Yet,  Jesus  spoke  to  him  (and  us)  about  true 
honor: faith. In the end, Nicodemus would step 
into  the  daylight  to  bury  Jesus.  He  would 
perform  not  only  an  honorable  act  of  charity 
(burying  the  dead),  he  would  implicitly  gaze 
upon  the  cross  and  see  his  true  Master  (see 
John 19:38-42).”

- From a reflection on the Gospel by Larry Broding.

begotten-Son”

Because God Is Real

by P.J. Kreeft

Why Aren’t We Happy?

(Chapter 14)

10. What can make me happy?

Only  God,  only  the  real  presence  inside 
you  of  the  real  God,  known  or  unknown. 
Only  the  One  who  made  you  for  Himself 
can satisfy your restless heart. Nothing else 
is  big  enough.  Trying  to  fill  that  deepest 
longing  inside  you  with  the  things  of  this 
world  is  like  trying  to  fill  the  Grand 
Canyon with marbles.

Nothing less than yourself fulfills your self. 
And  the  whole  world  is  less  than  yourself. 
That’s  why  Jesus  said,  “For  what  shall  it 
profit  a  man,  if  he  gain  the  whole  world, 
and suffer the loss of his soul? (Mk8:36)

There is only one thing that is greater than 
the  human  self:  God.  Nothing  less  can 
make us fully happy. And whenever we are 
happy,  it  is  only  because  God  is  giving  a 
little of Himself to us through the things He 
created,  especially  other  people  and  their 
love.

We are made that way. He created us to be 
restless  until  we  rest  in  Him.  He  designed 
us  that  way,  and  we  cannot  change  that 
design.

But how can we get Him? We can only get, 
and  control,  and  have  power,  over  things 
less  than  ourselves,  but  how  do  we  “get” 
God?

But  now  comes  the  good  news.  He  has 
done  the  work.  He  has  “gotten”  us.  We 
can’t climb up to Heaven to “get” Him, but 
He came down to earth to “get” us.

So  what  do  we  have  to  do  now  to  get 
plugged into God and happiness?

Here’s the best part of the good news. The 
answer  is  unbelievably  simple:  Just  ask. 
Just  believe.  Just  say  yes.  He  want’s  to 
give  Himself  freely  to  our  souls.  We  only 
have to accept that gift.

And  we  you  do  that,  when  you  say  yes  to 
God, when you let God make love to your 
soul, then your soul will get pregnant with 
God’s love, and that love will naturally flow 
out into love for your neighbours. And that 
will  make  you  happy  because  love  alone 
can free you from the shell of your ego.

We  can’t  do  this  on  our  own.  We  are  too 
weak and too selfish. But God wants to do 
it in us, and He will do it when we let Him. 
He  will  give  us  the  power  to  forget 
ourselves  and  just  love  Him  and  His 
children.  And  in  making  other  people 
happy,  we  will  find  that  we  are  happier 
than we have ever been before. For we are 
then sharing the very life of God.
