THE DIGNITY OF THE HUMAN 

PERSON

SIN

391. What does the acceptance of God’s 

mercy require from us?

It  requires  that  we  admit  our  faults  and 
repent of our sins. God himself by his Word 
and  his  Spirit  lays  bare  our  sins  and  gives 
us  the  truth  of  conscience  and  the  hope  of 
forgiveness.

392. What is sin?

Sin is “a word, an act, or a desire contrary 
to the eternal Law” (Saint Augustine). It is 
an  offense  against  God  in  disobedience  to 
his  love.  It  wounds  human  nature  and 
injures  human  solidarity.  Christ  in  his 
passion fully revealed the seriousness of sin 
and overcame it with his mercy.

393. Is there a variety of sins?

There are a great many kinds of sins. They 
can  be  distinguished  according  to  their 
object  or  according  to  the  virtues  or 
commandments  which  they  violate.  They 
can  directly  concern  God,  neighbor,  or 
ourselves.  They  can  also  be  divided  into 
sins  of  thought,  of  word,  of  deed,  or  of 
omission.

394. How are sins distinguished 

according to their gravity?

A  distinction  is  made  between  mortal  and 
venial sin.

395. When does one commit a mortal sin?

One  commits  a  mortal  sin  when  there  are 
simultaneously  present:  grave  matter,  full 
knowledge, and deliberate consent. This sin 
destroys  charity  in  us,  deprives  us  of 
sanctifying grace, and, if unrepented, leads 
us  to  the  eternal  death  of  hell.  It  can  be 
forgiven in the ordinary way by means of 

the  sacraments  of  Baptism  and  of  Penance 
or Reconciliation.

396. When does one commit a venial sin?

One  commits  a  venial  sin,  which  is 
essentially different from a mortal sin, when 
the matter involved is less serious or, even if 
it  is  grave,  when  full  knowledge  or 
complete  consent  are  absent.  Venial  sin 
does not break the covenant with God but 
it  weakens  charity  and  manifests  a 
disordered  affection  for  created  goods.  It 
impedes  the  progress  of  a  soul  in  the 
exercise of the virtues and in the practice of 
moral good. It merits temporal punishment 
which purifies.

397. How does sin proliferate?

Sin creates a proclivity to sin ; it engenders 
vice by repetition of the same acts.

398. What are vices?

Vices  are  the  opposite  of  virtues.  They  are 
perverse  habits  which  darken  the 
conscience and incline one to evil. The vices 
can be linked to the seven, so-called, capital 
sins  which  are:  pride,  avarice,  envy,  anger, 
lust, gluttony, and sloth or acedia.

399. Do we have any responsibility for 

sins committed by others?

We do have such a responsibility when we 
guiltily cooperate with them.

400. What are structures of sin?

Structures  of  sin  are  social  situations  or 
institutions  that  are  contrary  to  the  divine 
law.  They  are  the  expression  and  effect  of 
personal sins.

Working wonders in our livelihoods... 

When he was presented with a top youth achievement 

award at a recent gala at the Carlu, Kiwayne was only a 

short distance from the streets where he had been 

homeless, and a world away.  

In the building’s food court a few years ago, he recalls 

falling asleep at the table – exhausted – trying to avoid 

having to go back outside. “I was going down the wrong 

path and didn’t know if i’d live to be 21,” he says.  

But for the past two years since moving into his own 

place, Kiwayne has been studying construction 

engineering at George Brown College and working part-

time at the Provincial advocate’s Office.  

Kiwayne grew up in foster care and, at 17, he found 

himself on the street until a friend told him about 

Covenant House. “Covenant House gave me stable 

housing that allowed me to go back to school and learn 

life skills,” says Kiwayne. 

Next ShareLife Sunday – April 19, 2015 

 Please give generously. You can work wonders!

SMILE

The Pope and Queen Elizabeth were standing 

on a balcony beaming at thousands of people in 

the forecourt below. The Queen says to the 

Pope out of the corner of her mouth 

"I bet you a tenner that I can make every 

English person in the crowd go wild with just a 

wave of my hand."

The Pope says "No way. You can't do that."

The Queen says, "Watch this".

So the Queen waves her hand and every 

English person in the crowd goes crazy, waving 

their little plastic Union Jacks on sticks and 

cheering, basically going ballistic.

So the Pope is standing there going "Uh oh, 

what am I going to do? I never thought she'd be 

able to do it."

So he thinks to himself for a minute and then he 

turns to her and says, "I bet you I can make 

every IRISH person in the crowd go wild, not 

just now, but for the rest of the week, with just 

one nod of my head."

The Queen goes "No way, it can't be done."

So the Pope head-butts her.

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 SACRED TRIDUUM

The Paschal Triduum is the final three days of 

Lent and Holy Week. 

It  begins  with  the  Mass  of  the  Lord's  Supper 
on the evening of Holy Thursday and continues 
until the start of the Easter Vigil on the evening 
of  Holy  Saturday.  The  discipline  of  Lent 
continues during these three days. 

Holy Thursday

Holy  Thursday  is  the  day  that  Christ 
celebrated  the  Last  Supper  with  His  disciples, 
four  days  after  His  triumphal  entry  into 
Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. Holy Thursday is 
the  day  that  Catholics  commemorate  the 
institution of three pillars of the Catholic Faith: 
the  Sacrament  of  Holy  Communion,  the 
priesthood,  and  the  Mass.  In  telling  His 
disciples  to  "Do  this  in  remembrance  of  Me," 
He instituted the Mass and made them the first 
priests. Near the end of the Last Supper, after 
Judas  had  departed,  Christ  said  to  His 
disciples,  "A  new  commandment  I  give  unto 
you: That you love one another, as I have loved 
you, that you also love one another."

Good Friday

Good  Friday,  the  Friday  before  Easter, 
commemorates  the  Passion  and  Death  of  our 
Lord  Jesus  Christ  on  the  Cross.  No  Mass  is 
celebrated  on 

Good  Friday; 

i n s t e a d ,  t h e 

C h u r c h 

c e l e b r a t e s  a 

special  liturgy 

in  which  the 

account  of  the 

P a s s i o n 

according  to 

the  Gospel  of 

John  is  read,  a 

series  of  intercessory  prayers  (prayers  for 
special intentions) are offered, and the faithful 
venerate  the  Cross  by  coming  forward  and 
kissing  it.  The  Good  Friday  liturgy  concludes 
with  the  distribution  of  Holy  Communion. 
(Good  Friday  is  a  day  of  fasting  and 
abstinence)

Easter Vigil

On Holy Saturday the Church meditates on the 
suffering and death of Jesus. Then the Church 
gathers  to  celebrate  the  Easter  Vigil.  The 
celebration  of  the  Easter  Vigil  takes  place  at 
night. The Vigil has four parts: The Service of 

Light; the Liturgy of the Word; the Liturgy of 
Baptism; and the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

During the Service of Light, all the lights in the 
church  are  turned  off  and  a  fire  is  prepared 
outside the church. Then the fire is blessed and 
the Paschal Candle is lit from the new fire. The 
candle  is  carried  into  the  dark  church.  It  is  a 
sign of Christ, the Light of the World, who has 
overcome  the  darkness  of  sin  and  death.  This 
section concludes with the singing of the Easter 
Proclamation, the Exsultet.

During the Liturgy of the Word, the history of 
God's  great  love  for  us  is  proclaimed  in 
readings  from  the  Old  and  New  Testaments. 
(for  the  singing  of  the  Gloria,  please  bring 
bells)

During  the  Liturgy  of  Baptism,  after  the 
candidates are baptized, all present stand with 
lighted  candles  and  renew  their  baptismal 
promises as a sign that they share the new life 
of  Jesus  through  his  resurrection.  The  newly 
baptized and confirmed receive their first Holy 
Communion at this Mass.

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.

The Lord

Commentary  1  –  People  plotted  prior  to  Lord’s 
Passion
“Many  scholars  have  proposed  reasons  for  the 
plot against Jesus; I have included some of my 
own thoughts in the commentary on Matthew’s 
Passion.  Sometimes  we  gloss  over  the 
conspiratorial  aspect  of  the  plot.  The  trial  and 
death  of  Jesus  was  a  premeditated  act, 
committed  by  the  leadership  in  Jerusalem.  It 
was a effort not to fit the evidence to the crime, 
but the crime to the evidence.”

-

From a reflection on the Gospel for Passion Sunday by Larry 

Broding

Commentary 2

 – It’s the taking off of clothes that 

maketh this Man
“What John records in his Gospel is less ‘right 
and proper’ - as we can see by Peter’s reaction. 
The  work  of  washing  the  feet  of  guests  was 
usually  reserved  for  servants  -  and  yet,  Jesus 
has  no  qualms  about  taking  off  his  outer 
garment,  tying  a  towel  around  his  waist  and 
washing the feet of his friends.

How often has he said that his disciples are not 
lord it over one another - and yet, his action is 
deeply  shocking.  We  have  ritualized  it  in  the 
Mass  -  what  would  it  be  like  if  we  could 
imagine  its  happening  as  spontaneously  as  it 
happened here.”

A reflection on the Gospel for Holy Thursday by Catherine McElhinney 

and Kathryn Turner

Commentary  3  –  Take  time  to  withdraw  and 
reflect
“This  is  a  day  of  mourning.  We  should  try  to 
take  time  off  from  work  and  school  to 
participate  in  the  devotions  and  liturgy  of  the 
day as much as possible. In addition, we should 
refrain  from  extraneous  conversation.  Some 
families leave the curtains drawn, and maintain 
silence during the 3 hours (noon — 3pm), and 
keep  from  loud  conversation  or  activities 
throughout  the  remainder  of  the  day.  We 
should  also  restrict  ourselves  from  any  TV, 
music  or  computer—these  are  all  types  of 
technology  that  can  distract  us  from  the  spirit 
of the day.”

A commentary on Good Friday, from the Catholic Culture website

Commentary  4  –  Scars  show  the  suffering  of  the 
Saviour
“Holy  Saturday  (from  Sabbatum  Sanctum,  its 
official  liturgical  name)  is  sacred  as  the  day  of 
the  Lord's  rest;  it  has  been  called  the  "Second 
Sabbath" after creation. The day is and should 
be  the  most  calm  and  quiet  day  of  the  entire 
Church  year,  a  day  broken  by  no  liturgical 
function.  Christ  lies  in  the  grave,  the  Church 
sits near and mourns. After the great battle He 
is  resting  in  peace,  but  upon  Him  we  see  the 
scars  of  intense  suffering...The  mortal  wounds 
on  His  Body  remain  visible....Jesus'  enemies 
are  still  furious,  attempting  to  obliterate  the 
very memory of the Lord by lies and slander.”

Culture website

SAINT OF THE WEEK

St.  Peter  Regalado—  March  30,  (1390-1456).  Peter 
lived  at  a  very  busy  time  in  history.  The  Great 
Western  Schism  (1378-1417)  was  settled  at  the 
Council  of  Constance  (1414-1418).  France  and 
England were fighting the Hundred Years’ War, and 
in 1453 the Byzantine Empire was completely wiped 
out  by  the  loss  of  Constantinople  to  the  Turks.  At 
Peter’s  death  the  age  of  printing  had  just  begun  in 
Germany, and Columbus's arrival in the New World 
was less than 40 years away.

Peter  came  from  a  wealthy  and  pious  family  in 
Valladolid, Spain. At the age of 13, he was allowed 
t o  e n t e r  t h e 

C o n v e n t u a l 

F r a n c i s c a n s . 

Shortly  after  his 

ordination,  he 

w a s 

m a d e 

superior  of  the 

friary  in  Aguilar. 

He  became  part 

of  a  group  of 

f r i a r s  w h o 

wanted  to  lead  a 

life  of  greater 

p o v e r t y  a n d 

p e n a n c e .  I n 

1 4 4 2  h e  w a s 

appointed head of all the Spanish Franciscans in his 
reform group.

Peter led the friars by his example. A special love of 
the  poor  and  the  sick  characterized  Peter. 
Miraculous  stories  are  told  about  his  charity  to  the 
poor.  For  example,  the  bread  never  seemed  to  run 
out  as  long  as  Peter  had  hungry  people  to  feed. 
Throughout most of his life, Peter went hungry; he 
lived only on bread and water.

Immediately after his death on March 31, 1456, his 
grave  became  a  place  of  pilgrimage.  Peter  was 
canonized in 1746.

Comment:  Peter  was  an  effective  leader  of  the  friars 

because he did not become ensnared in anger over the sins of 

others. Peter helped sinning friars rearrange the priorities in 

their  lives  and  dedicate  themselves  to  living  the  gospel  of 

Jesus  Christ  as  they  had  vowed.  This  patient  correction  is 

an  act  of  charity  available  to  all  Franciscans,  not  just  to 

superiors.

Quote:  "And  let  all  the  brothers,  both  the  ministers  and 

servants as well as the others, take care not to be disturbed 

or angered at the sin or the evil of another, because the devil 
wishes  to  destroy  many  through  the

  fault  of  one;  but  they 

should spiritually help [the brother] who has

 sinned as best 

they can, because it is not the healthy who are in need of the 

physician,  but  those  who  are  sick  (cf.  Mt  9:12;  Mk 

2:17)" (Rule of 1221, Chapter 5).
