Working wonders in our livelihoods... 

“The services provided by ShareLife agencies 

are lifesaving and life-restoring to those who 

regularly rely on them.  

Families are working through crises and are 

healing.  

People with developmental challenges are 

supported as they experience a sense of self-

worth and fulfillment in their daily activities.  

Seniors are living independently, with access to 

the care and services they need.  

Refugees and new Canadians are guided 

toward a stable, productive livelihood in their 

newfound home.  

Sometimes the results are obvious and 

sometimes they’re invisible but, always, they 

make a tangible difference.” 

—Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of 

Toronto 

Today is ShareLife Sunday 

Please give generously.

THE DIGNITY OF THE HUMAN 

PERSON

MAN'S FREEDOM

363. What is freedom?

Freedom  is  the  power  given  by  God  to  act  or 
not  to  act,  to  do  this  or  to  do  that,  and  so  to 
perform  deliberate  actions  on  one's  own 
responsibility.  Freedom  characterizes  properly 
human  acts.  The  more  one  does  what  is  good, 
the  freer  one  becomes.  Freedom  attains  its 
proper  perfection  when  it  is  directed  toward 
God,  the  highest  good  and  our  beatitude. 
Freedom implies also the possibility of choosing 
between good and evil. The choice of evil is an 
abuse of freedom and leads to the slavery of sin.

364. What is the relationship between 

freedom and responsibility?

Freedom  makes  people  responsible  for  their 
actions  to  the  extent  that  they  are  voluntary, 
even  if  the  imputability  and  responsibility  for 
an  action  can  be  diminished  or  sometimes 
cancelled  by  ignorance,  inadvertence,  duress, 
fear, inordinate attachments, or habit.

365. Why does everyone have a right to 

exercise freedom?

The right to the exercise of freedom belongs to 
everyone  because  it  is  inseparable  from  his  or 
her  dignity  as  a  human  person.  Therefore  this 
right  must  always  be  respected,  especially  in 
moral  and  religious  matters,  and  it  must  be 
recognized  and  protected  by  civil  authority 
within the limits of the common good and a just 
public order.

366. What place does human freedom have in 

the plan of salvation?

Our  freedom  is  weakened  because  of  original 
sin.  This  weakness  is  intensified  because  of 
successive sins. Christ, however, set us free “so 
that we should remain free” (Gal5:1). With his 
grace,  the  Holy  Spirit  leads  us  to  spiritual 
freedom to make us free co-workers with him in 
the Church and in the world.

367. What are the sources of the morality of 

human acts?

The  morality  of 
h u m a n  a c t s 

depends  on  three 

sources:  the  object  chosen,  either  a  true  or 
apparent good; the intention of the subject who 
acts, that is, the purpose for which the subject 
performs  the  act;  and  the  circumstances  of  the 
act, which include its consequences.

368. When is an act morally good?

An  act  is  morally  good  when  it  assumes 
simultaneously  the  goodness  of  the  object,  of 
the  end,  and  of  the  circumstances.  A  chosen 
object can by itself vitiate an act in its entirety, 
even if the intention is good. It is not licit to do 
evil so that good may result from it. An evil end 
corrupts the action, even if the object is good in 
itself. On the other hand, a good end does not 
make an act good if the object of that act is evil, 
since  the  end  does  not  justify  the  means. 
Circumstances  can  increase  or  diminish  the 
responsibility of the one who is acting but they 
cannot  change  the  moral  quality  of  the  acts 
themselves.  They  never  make  good  an  act 
which is in itself evil.

369. Are there acts which are always illicit?

There  are  some  acts  which,  in  and  of 
themselves, are always illicit by reason of their 
object  (for  example,  blasphemy,  homicide, 
adultery). Choosing such acts entails a disorder 
of the will, that is, a moral evil which can never 
be  justified  by  appealing  to  the  good  effects 
which could possibly result from them.

JESUS CLEANED OUT THE TEMPLE 

OF MONEY-CHANGERS. 

He was angry; He was zealous; He spoke with 

authority. He was doing what He had to do even 

though it involved risk, danger, insult and 

wonder. 

Such is a religious vocation in the Church. If 

you think God might be calling you to one, call

ARCDIOCESE

SMILE

Smuggling

A distinguished young woman on a flight from 

Switzerland asked the Priest beside her, "Father, 

may I ask a favor?" "Of course. What may I do 

for you?"

"Well, I bought an expensive woman's electronic 

hair dryer for my mother's birthday. The dryer 

is unopened and well over the Customs limits; 

and I'm afraid they'll confiscate it. Is there any 

way you could carry it through Customs for 

me? Under your robes perhaps?"

"I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn 

you: I will not lie."

"With your honest face, Father, no one will 

question you."

When they reached the Customs area, she let 

the priest go ahead of her.

The official asked: "Father, do you have 

anything to declare?"

"From the top of my head down to my waist, I 

have nothing to declare."

The official thought this answer strange, so 

asked, "And what do you have to declare from 

your waist to the floor?"

"I have a marvelous instrument designed to be 

used on a woman, but which is, to date, 

unused."

Roaring with laughter, the official said, "Go 

ahead, Father."

SAINT OF THE WEEK

Optional Memorial, St Frances of Rome: Mon, March 
9: 

Born  of  wealthy  parents,  Frances  found  herself 

attracted to the religious life during her youth. But 
her  parents  objected  and  a  young  nobleman  was 
selected to be her husband.

As  she  became  acquainted  with  her  new  relatives, 
Frances  soon  discovered  that  the  wife  of  her 
husband’s brother also wished to live a life of service 
and prayer. So the two, Frances and Vannozza, set 
out  together—with  their  husbands’  blessings—to 
help the poor.

The  years  passed,  and  Frances  gave  birth  to  two 
sons  and  a  daughter.  With  the  new  responsibilities 
of family life, the young mother turned her attention 
more to the needs of her own household.

The  family  flourished  under  Frances’s  care,  but 
within  a  few  years  a  great  plague  began  to  sweep 
across  Italy.  It

alleviate  some 

of the suffering, 

Frances  used 

all  her  money 

and  sold  her 

possessions  to 

buy  whatever 

the  sick  might 

possibly  need. 

When  all  the 

resources  had

Vannozza  went 

door  to  door 

begging.  Later, 

Frances’s  daughter  died,  and  the  saint  opened  a 
section of her house as a hospital.

Frances became more and more convinced that this 
way  of  life  was  so  necessary  for  the  world,  and  it 
was  not  long  before  she  requested  and  was  given 
permission  to  found  a  society  of  women  bound  by 
no  vows.  They  simply  offered  themselves  to  God 
and to the service of the poor. Once the society was 
established,  Frances  chose  not  to  live  at  the 
community  residence,  but  rather  at  home  with  her 
husband.  She  did  this  for  seven  years,  until  her 
husband  passed  away,  and  then  came  to  live  the 
remainder  of  her  life  with  the  society—serving  the 
poorest of the poor.

Comment: 

The life of Frances of Rome calls each of 

us  not  only  to  look  deeply  for  God  in  prayer,  but 
also  to  carry  our  devotion  to  Jesus  living  in  the 
suffering  of  our  world.  Frances  shows  us  that  this 
life need not be restricted to those bound by vows.

Quote:

 “It is most laudable in a married woman to be 

devout,  but  she  must  never  forget  that  she  is  a 
housewife.  And  sometimes  she  must  leave  God  at 
the altar to find Him in her housekeeping”.

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.

Our Lord

Commentary 1 – Temple incident points to the need to 
transform the interior
“The key to the passage lies in the words of the 
gospel  writer,  ‘  but  he  was  speaking  of  the 
temple of his body.’ “Richard Rohr’s insight is, 
‘When  God  is  seen  as  outside‘  the  sacrificial 
system will remain. However, when God moves 
inside  you  are  the  temple  and  sacrifice  is  no 
longer required. The only sacrifice now, is me.

“What  Fr.  Richard  in  drawing  attention  to  is 
the  unique  contribution  of  Jesus  in 
‘interiorising’  religion.  Large  parts  of  the 
teaching of Jesus, such as those recorded in the 
Sermon  on  the  Mount,  are  about  this  interior 
priority.

“The  commandments  are  observed  by  inner 
integrity  and  not  by  mere  external  compliance 
to  a  rule.  That  is  why  the  entire  Law  can  be 
contained  in  the  injunction  to  love  God  and 
Neighbour,  because  this  is  a  religious 
observance that originates in the heart.

“By  contrast,  observe  any  fundamentalist 
expression  of  religion  and  you  will  see  an 
obsession  with  externals….  This  is  not  the 
message of Jesus.

“Jesus  came  to  challenge  mere  external 
ritualism  which  issues  in  hypocrisy  when  it 
bears no resemblance to inner motivations and 
does  not  change  the  heart.  “External  religion 

will  always  be  compulsively  obsessed  with 
Prestige,  Privilege,  Power,  Politics,  Protocol, 
and Precedent. These are the tables and scales 
of oppression that Jesus overturns.”

- An extract from The Listening Hermit blog, by Peter Woods

Commentary 2 – We all need some silence in our lives
“Jesus was not afraid of the market-place - he 
spent  a  lot  of  time  there,  teaching,  preaching 
and  healing.  But,  when  confronted  with  the 
same things in the Temple, he became angry. As 
someone who regularly went off to quiet places 
to pray, he knew how essential it was - and how 
disruptive a noisy, bustle place could be.

“The  authorities  are  understandably  angry  in 
return - who does Jesus think he is?

“Jesus understands that the days of the Temple 
are numbered - and that, in fact, a new Temple 
is being built - a new Kingdom. He is himself a 
Temple, a place where God is and all too soon, 
the  sanctuary  that  was  his  own  body  would 
seem  to  be  destroyed.  But,  unlike  the  Temple, 
so  painstakingly  built  over  so  many  years  and 
so difficult to rebuild when destroyed, his body 
was  charged  with  the  very  life  of  God  and 
death could not hold him.

“This gift he passed on to his disciples - making 
them temples of the Holy Spirit - the presence 
of God in the world.”

- A reflection on the Gospel by Catherine McElhinney and Kathryn 

Turner.

Why Aren’t We Happy?

(Chapter 14)

8.  Why  can’t  enjoyment  and  pleasure  make  you 
happy? That’s in you, not in other people, and it’s 
in the soul, not just the body, and we seek it as an 
end, not just as a means. So it’s like happiness in 
all three of those ways.

Yes,  and  now  we’re  getting  closer,  more 
inside.  Pleasure  is  felt  in  the  soul.  But  it 
comes through the body. It’s dependent on 
material  things  in  the  outside  world.  It 
depends  on  good  luck,  on  things  we  can’t 
control.

Bodily  pleasures  go  the  way  of  the  body: 
into the grace. 

Even  before  that,  pleasures  are  fleeting. 
Pleasures don’t last. But happiness does.

Also,  some  pleasures  are  false.  We  regret 
them;  we  are  sorry  afterwards.  That  is 
never true of happiness.

And  pleasure  can  get  boring.  True 
happiness does not.

Pleasure  is  incomplete.  When  we  have 
pleasure,  we  still  don’t  necessarily  have 
other good things, like wisdom and courage 
and  peace  and  love.  But  perfect  happiness 
is complete. So perfect happiness is not just 
pleasure.

So  even  though  pleasure  is  close  to 
happiness, or perhaps even an ingredient in 
it,  it’s  not  the  whole  of  it.  When  we  are 
happy,  we  are  also  pleased,  but  being 
pleased  (pleasure)  is  not  quite  identical 
with  happiness.  Pleasure  is  to  happiness 
what the scent of a flower is to the flower. 
It’s an effect of happiness, a consequence of 
happiness.  When  you  have  real  happiness, 
you  feel  pleased.  The  feeling  comes  from 

the  reality.  But  we  have  not  yet  found  the 
reality.  

9. Then maybe nothing in the world can make us 
happy.  Maybe  the  whole  world  can’t  make  us 
wholly happy.

That  is  true!  And  that  is  real  progress 
toward  finding  an  answer.  For  it  tells  us 
where  the  answer  has  to  be  by  telling  us 
where it isn’t. If this world is not enough to 
make us totally happy, then only something 
outside  the  world  can  do  that.  And  that 
doesn’t  mean  just  something  outside  this 
planet but something outside this universe. 
And  there  is  only  one  thing  outside  this 
universe: the Creator of the universe, God.

“You  have  made  us  for  Yourself,  and  our 
hearts  are  restless  till  they  rest  in  You”, 
Saint  Augustine  said  to  God.  This 
restlessness  is  a  very  good  thing.  It  moves 
us  along,  moves  us  to  our  true  home.  Our 
happiness is a prod down the road to God. 
If we were content, we would be like a cow 
that  lies  down  along  the  side  of  the  road 
and  chews  the  grass  instead  of  moving  on, 
moving home.
