THE SECOND COMMANDMENT: 

YOU SHALL NOT TAKE THE NAME OF 

THE LORD YOUR GOD IN VAIN

447. How does one respect the holiness of the 

Name of God?

One  shows  respect  for  the  holy  Name  of  God 
by blessing it, praising it and glorifying it. It is 
forbidden,  therefore,  to  call  on  the  Name  of 
God  to  justify  a  crime.  It  is  also  wrong  to  use 
the holy Name of God in any improper way as 
in  blasphemy  (which  by  its  nature  is  a  grave 
sin),  curses,  and  unfaithfulness  to  promises 
made in the Name of God.

448. Why is a false oath forbidden?

It is forbidden because one calls upon God who 
is truth itself to be the witness to a lie.
“Do  not  swear,  whether  by  the  Creator  or  by 
any creature, except truthfully, of necessity and 
with reverence.” (Saint Ignatius of Loyola)

449. What is perjury?

Perjury  is  to  make  a  promise  under  oath  with 
the  intention  of  not  keeping  it  or  to  violate  a 
promise  made  under  oath.  It  is  a  grave  sin 
against  God  who  is  always  faithful  to  his 
promises.

THE THIRD COMMANDMENT: 

REMEMBER TO KEEP HOLY THE 

LORD'S DAY

450. Why did God “bless the Sabbath day and 

declare it sacred” (Exodus 20:11)?

God  did  so  because  on  the  Sabbath  day  one 
remembers  God’s  rest  on  the  seventh  day  of 
creation,  and  also  the  liberation  of  Israel  from 
slavery in Egypt and the Covenant which God 
sealed with his people.

451. How did Jesus act in regard to the Sabbath?

Jesus  recognized  the  holiness  of  the  Sabbath 
day and with divine authority he gave this law 
its  authentic  interpretation:  “The  Sabbath  was 
made for man, and not man for the 

sabbath” (Mark 2:27).

452. For what reason has the Sabbath been 

changed to Sunday for Christians?

The reason is because Sunday is the day of the 
Resurrection of Christ. As “the first day of the 
week”  (Mark  16:2)  it  recalls  the  first  creation; 
and  as  the  “eighth  day”,  which  follows  the 
sabbath, it symbolizes the new creation ushered 
in  by  the  Resurrection  of  Christ.  Thus,  it  has 
become for Christians the first of all days and of 
all feasts. It is the day of the Lord in which he 
with his Passover fulfilled the spiritual truth of 
the  Jewish  Sabbath  and  proclaimed  man’s 
eternal rest in God.

453. How does one keep Sunday holy?

Christians  keep  Sunday  and  other  days  of 
obligation holy by participating in the Eucharist 
of  the  Lord  and  by  refraining  from  those 
activities which impede the worship of God and 
disturb the joy proper to the day of the Lord or 
the  necessary  relaxation  of  mind  and  body. 
Activities are allowed on the Sabbath which are 
bound up with family needs or with important 
social service, provided that they do not lead to 
habits  prejudicial  to  the  holiness  of  Sunday,  to 
family life and to health.

454. Why is the civil recognition of Sunday as a 

feast day important?

It  is  important  so  that  all  might  be  given  the 
real  possibility  of  enjoying  sufficient  rest  and 
leisure  to  take  care  of  their  religious,  familial, 
cultural and social lives. It is important also to 
have  an  opportune  time  for  meditation,  for 
reflection,  for  silence,  for  study,  and  a  time  to 
dedicate to good works, particularly for the sick 
and for the elderly.

PENTECOST EVENT

The confused and fear-filled apostles 

were totally changed by the outpouring 

of the Holy Spirit as they became 

powerful and dynamic proclaimers of 

their faith in Jesus Christ. 

In today's Church God calls priests, 

religious and deacons to serve Him 

and to serve others especially by the 

inspiration of the Holy Spirit. If you 

feel God may be calling you to this 

ministry, call Fr. Chris Lemieux,

ShareLife 

Working wonders for those who need help in our 

neighbourhood... 

“What an ambassador for Mary Centre he was, and Gord was 

really tickled to be chosen for this role as co-speaker.” said 

dominic Conforti, retiring director at Mary Centre. Gord, who is 

intellectually challenged, shared his story at the 2014 

ShareLife Golf tournament about how he and his two brothers 
came to be part of Mary Centre. He spoke about Christina who 

helps them during the day involving them in activities in the 

community and teaching them to do things for themselves. 

then there was James who is with them on the weekends and 
helped them grow a veggie garden every spring and summer 

and the pride they feel when they pick their vegetables. Last 

year, over 2,300 people with special needs received the 

compassion and care they needed to enjoy their life and be 

productive in their homes and communities. 

Thank You for Your Generosity  

Together we can work wonders!

SAINT OF THE WEEK

Optional  Memorial:

  St  Mary  Magdalen  de’Pazzi, 

Virgin  —  Monday,  May  25:  Mystical  ecstasy  is 
the elevation of the spirit to God in such a way 
that  the  person  is  aware  of  this  union  with 
God while both internal and external senses are 
detached  from  the  sensible  world.  Mary 
Magdalene  de'  Pazzi  was  so  generously  given 
this  special  gift  of  God  that  she  is  called  the 
"ecstatic saint.”

She was born into a noble family in Florence in 
1566.  The  normal  course  would  have  been  for 
Catherine de' Pazzi to have married wealth and 
enjoyed  comfort,  but  she  chose  to  follow  her 
own  path.  At 

nine  she  learned 

t o  m e d i t a t e 

from  the  family 

confessor.  She 

made  her  first 

Communion  at 

the  then-early 

age  of  10  and 

made  a  vow  of 

virginity  one 

m o n t h  l a t e r. 

When  16,  she 

e n t e r e d  t h e 

C a r m e l i t e 

c o n v e n t  i n 

F l o r e n c e  b e c a u s e  s h e  c o u l d  r e c e i v e 
Communion daily there.

Catherine  had  taken  the  name  Mary 
Magdalene  and  had  been  a  novice  for  a  year 
when  she  became  critically  ill.  Death  seemed 
near  so  her  superiors  let  her  make  her 
profession of vows from a cot in the chapel in a 
private  ceremony.  Immediately  after,  she  fell 
into  an  ecstasy  that  lasted  about  two  hours. 
This  was  repeated  after  Communion  on  the 
following  40  mornings.  These  ecstasies  were 
rich  experiences  of  union  with  God  and 
contained  marvellous  insights  into  divine 
truths.

As  a  safeguard  against  deception  and  to 
preserve  the  revelations,  her  confessor  asked 
Mary  Magdalene  to  dictate  her  experiences  to 
sister  secretaries.  Over  the  next  six  years,  five 
large volumes were filled. The first three books 
record  ecstasies  from  May  of  1584  through 
Pentecost  week  the  following  year.  This  week 
was  a  preparation  for  a  severe  five-year  trial. 
The fourth book records that trial and the fifth 
is a collection of letters concerning reform and 
renewal.  Another  book,  Admonitions,  is  a 

collection  of  her  sayings  arising  from  her 
experiences  in  the  formation  of  women 
religious.

The  extraordinary  was  ordinary  for  this  saint. 
She  read  the  thoughts  of  others  and  predicted 
future  events.  During  her  lifetime,  she 
appeared  to  several  persons  in  distant  places 
and cured a number of sick people.

It would be easy to dwell on the ecstasies and 
pretend  that  Mary  Magdalene  only  had 
spiritual  highs.  This  is  far  from  true.  It  seems 
that God permitted her this special closeness to 
prepare her for the five years of desolation that 
followed  when  she  experienced  spiritual 
dryness.  She  was  plunged  into  a  state  of 
darkness  in  which  she  saw  nothing  but  what 
was horrible in herself and all around her. She 
had  violent  temptations  and  endured  great 
physical suffering. She died in 1607 at 41, and 
was canonized in 1669.

Comment: 

Intimate union, God's gift to mystics, 

is  a  reminder  to  all  of  us  of  the  eternal 
happiness  of  union  he  wishes  to  give  us.  The 
cause of mystical ecstasy in this life is the Holy 
Spirit, working through spiritual gifts.

Quote: 

"The last thing I ask of you—and I ask it 

in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—is that 
you love him alone, that you trust implicitly in 
him  and  that  you  encourage  one  another 
continually to suffer for the love of him."

GO TO CHURCH WILLIAM

On a sunny morning, William's mother came into 

her son's room and said, "William, it's Sunday. 

Time to get up! Time to get up and go to church! 

Get up!" 

From under the covers came mumbles, "I don't 

want to go!" 

"What do you mean?" she said. "That's silly! Now 

get up and get dressed and go to church!" 

"No!" he shot back. "I'll give you two reasons. I 

don't like them and they don't like me!" 

"Nonsense," she told him. "I'll give YOU two 

reasons to go. First, you are 42 years old, and 

second, you are the PASTOR!"

Jesus

Commentary  1  –  Jesus  did  predict  the  coming  of  the 

Spirit
“No-one could say that Jesus had failed to forewarn 
the  disciples  that  the  Spirit  would  come  and  yet, 
most  of  the  Gospel  accounts  of  their  life  after  the 
Resurrection suggest that they did not really expect 
anything to happen. Two began the journey back to 
Emmaus,  others  hid  behind  closed  doors  and  later 
went back to the nets they had so impetuously left a 
few years before. Jesus had told them the the Spirit 
would come - but everyday life seemed to go on as 
normal  and,  quite  frankly,  the  disciples  were 
probably  glad  of  the  anonymity  for  a  while:  As 
Jesus  had  also  said,  ‘if  the  authorities  treat  me  as 
they will, how will they treat you?’

“And  so,  the  fishermen  continued  to  fish  -  and  life 
passed  -  until  one  day,  they  and  the  other  apostles 
came together. Earlier in Acts, we are told that they 
met  to  pray  with  Mary  and  ‘certain  women’  -  a 
gathering of people who had been with Jesus during 
his ministry, who had seen him die and seen him rise 
to  new  life.  What  was  it  in  their  prayer  in  that 
gathering that opened the way for the Spirit to come 
upon  them.  As  the  wind  blew  through  the  house  - 
and fire fell upon their heads, did they need Mary to 
discern  what  was  happening  and  echo  words  from 
her  own  overshadowing  by  the  Spirit:  ‘Don’t  be 
afraid’?’

“Suddenly, the prophecy of Jesus in today’s Gospel 
comes true - the Spirit of truth does come upon the 
apostles and a secretive gathering of people explodes 
onto  the  unsuspecting  streets  of  Jerusalem.  There 
the  Truth  is  proclaimed  to  anyone  who  has  ears  to 
listen. This Truth is not reserved for a closed group 
of people but is to be proclaimed to the whole world. 
The Truth is not limited to a language - everyone can 
perceive this truth in their own tongue. The Truth is 
not  to  be  hidden  in  code  -  available  only  to  those 
initiated  into  its  intricacies  -  but  open  for  anyone 
who dared to look.”

Me And Drink”

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.
