Section One

“I believe” – “We believe”

1. What is the plan of God for man?

God,  infinitely  perfect  and  blessed  in  himself,  in  a
plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make
him  share  in  his  own  blessed  life.  In  the  fullness  of
time, God the Father sent his Son as the Redeemer
and Savior of mankind, fallen into sin, thus calling all
into  his  Church  and,  through  the  work  of  the  Holy
Spirit, making them adopted children and heirs of his
eternal happiness.

CHAPTER ONE

Man's Capacity for God

“You  are  great,  O  Lord,  and  greatly  to  be
praised [...] You have made us for yourself and
our heart is restless until it rests in you.” (Saint
Augustine)

2. Why does man have a desire for God?

God himself, in creating man in his own image, has
written upon his heart the desire to see him. Even if
this desire is often ignored, God never ceases to draw
man to himself because only in God will he find and
live the fullness of truth and happiness for which he
never  stops  searching.  By  nature  and  by  vocation,
therefore,  man  is  a  religious  being,  capable  of
entering  into  communion  with  God.  This  intimate
and  vital  bond  with  God  confers  on  man  his
fundamental dignity.

3. How is it possible to know God with only the

light of human reason?

Starting  from  creation,  that  is  from  the  world  and
from  the  human  person,  through  reason  alone  one
can know God with certainty as the origin and end of
the universe, as the highest good and as infinite truth
and beauty.

4. Is the light of reason alone sufficient to know

the mystery of God?

In  coming  to  a  knowledge  of  God  by  the  light  of
reason  alone  man  experiences  many  difficulties.
Indeed,  on  his  own  he  is  unable  to  enter  into  the
intimacy of the divine mystery. This is why he stands
in need of being enlightened by God’s revelation, not
only  about  those  things  that  exceed  his
understanding,  but  also  about  those  religious  and
moral truths which of themselves are not beyond the
grasp of human reason, so that even in the present
condition of the human race, they can be known by
all  with  ease,  with  firm  certainty  and  with  no
admixture of error.

5. How can we speak about God?

By  taking  as  our  starting  point  the  perfections  of
man  and  of  the  other  creatures  which  are  a
reflection,  albeit  a  limited  one,  of  the  infinite
perfection  of God,  we  are  able  to  speak  about God
with all people. We must, however, continually purify
our  language  insofar  as  it  is  image-bound  and
imperfect,  realizing  that  we  can  never  fully  express
the infinite mystery of God.

SMILE

Only one kiss per yard

Walking up to a department store's fabric counter, the

pretty girl said, "I would like to buy this material for my

new dress. How much does it cost?"

"Only one kiss per yard," replied the male clerk with a

smirk on his face.

"That's fine," said the girl. "I'll take ten yards."

With expectation and anticipation written all over his

face, the clerk quickly measured out the cloth, wrapped it

up, then teasingly held it out.

The girl snapped up the package, pointed to the old man

behind her, and smiled, "Grandpa's gonna pay the bill."

ID ten T error

I was having trouble with my computer. So I called David,

the 11 year old next door whose bedroom looks like

Mission Control, and asked him to come over.

David clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.

As he was walking away, I called after him, "So, what was

wrong?"

He replied, "It was an ID ten T error."

I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired,

"An ID Ten T error?

What's that? In case I need to fix it again."

David grinned, "Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T

error before?"

"No", I replied.

"Write it down," he said, "and I think you'll figure it out."

So I wrote down: I D 1 0 T

I used to like that little boy.

OPTIONAL

MEMORIAL:  Dedication  of  the

Basilicas  of  Saints  Peter  and  Paul,  Apostles
Wednesday  November  18:  —  St.  Peter’s  is
probably  the  most  famous  church  in
Christendom.  Massive  in  scale  and  a  veritable
museum  of  art  and  architecture,  it  began  on  a
much  humbler  scale.  Vatican  Hill  was  a  simple
cemetery where believers gathered at St. Peter’s
tomb to pray. In 319 Constantine built a basilica
on the site that stood for more than a thousand
years  until,  despite  numerous  restorations,  it
threatened  to  collapse.  In  1506,  Pope  Julius  II
ordered it razed and reconstructed, but the new
basilica  was  not  completed  and  dedicated  for
more than two centuries.

St.  Paul’s  Outside-the-Walls  stands  near  the
Abaazia  delle  Tre  Fontane,  where  St.  Paul  is
believed  to  have  been  beheaded.  The  largest
church in Rome until St. Peter’s was rebuilt, the
basilica  also  rises  over  the  traditional  site  of  its
namesake’s  grave. The  most  recent  edifice  was
constructed after a fire in 1823. The first basilica
was also Constantine’s doing.

Constantine’s  building  projects  enticed  the  first
of a centuries-long parade of pilgrims to Rome.
From the time the basilicas were first built until
the  empire  crumbled  under  “barbarian”
invasions,  the  two  churches,  although  miles
apart,  were  linked  by  a  roofed  colonnade  of
marble columns.

Comment:  Peter,  the  rough  fisherman  whom
Jesus  named  the  rock  on  which  the  Church  is
built,  and  the  educated  Paul,  reformed
persecutor  of  Christians,  Roman  citizen  and
missionary  to  the Gentiles,  are  the  original  odd
couple.  The  major  similarity  in  their  faith-
journeys is the journey’s end: Both, according to
tradition, died a martyr’s death in Rome—Peter
on  a  cross  and  Paul  beneath  the  sword.  Their
combined  gifts  shaped  the  early  Church  and
believers  have  prayed  at  their  tombs  from  the
earliest days.

Quote:  “It  is  extraordinarily  interesting  that
Roman  pilgrimage  began  at  an…early  time.
Pilgrims did not wait for the Peace of the Church
[Constantine’s  edict  of  toleration]  before  they
visited the tombs of the Apostles. They went to
Rome  a  century  before  there  were  any  public
churches and when the Church was confined to
the  tituli  [private  homes]  and  the  catacombs.
The  two  great  pilgrimage  sites  were  exactly  as
today—the  tombs,  or  memorials,  of  St.  Peter
upon the Vatican Hill and the tomb of St. Paul off
the Ostian Way” (H.V. Morton, This Is Rome).

Commentary  2  –  Trust  God  with  our

future

Viewing  the  end  of  time, Jesus  saw  the  event  as
the visit of the divine King. God would prepare the
visit  with  cosmic  signs  and  events  as  a  means  of
announcement.  The  King  would  arrive  in  a  way
that  reflected  his  power  and  reputation  (on  the
clouds); his messengers-criers ("angels") would go
throughout  the  known  world  to  gather  all  the
faithful.  Remember  that  the  Jewish  people  had
been  displaced  throughout  the  known  world
because  of  economic  opportunity  or  oppression.
Jesus  implied  that  the  injustice  of  Jews  living  on
foreign soil would be corrected during his lifetime.

How did his disciples know Jesus spoke the truth?
Jesus gave a farming analogy of the fig tree (green
before  the  summer  to  support  his  belief  in God's
immanent  judgement.  Then  he  compared  God's
creation  to  his  words.  Nature  changed,  but  his

words  would  not;  they  were  eternal  and,  so,
trustworthy.

After  all  that, Jesus  said  that  only God  knew  the
day  (the  time  frame)  or  the  hour  (the  exact
moment) of these events. Doesn't this contradict
his  preaching  and  assurance?  To  the  impatient
Westerner,  the  answer  would  seem  to  be  "yes."
But  Jesus  challenged  his  disciples  to  see  the
process  through  God's  eyes. These  things  would
happen  in  God's  time,  not  ours. The  teaching  of
Jesus  challenged  both  his  audience  and  our
uncertain  time  to  trust  God  with  the  future.
Anxiety  and  paranoia  were  futile  responses  to  a
situation that requires faith.

Question
Is the tabernacle always supposed to be in the centre of the
sanctuary?
Full Question
Is the tabernacle always supposed to be in the centre of the
sanctuary? If it's not in good view from where I sit, in what
direction should I genuflect (kneel)—toward the tabernacle
or toward the altar?
Answer
The  tabernacle  may  be  placed  anywhere  in  the  church
provided certain conditions are met. The Code of Canon
Law states:

The  tabernacle  in  which  the  most  holy  Eucharist  is
reserved is to be situated in some part of the church
or  oratory  that  is  distinguished,  conspicuous,
beautifully  decorated,  and  suitable  for  prayer  (CIC
938).

Concerning  genuflecting,  the  General  Instruction  of  the
Roman Missal instructs:

If  .  .  .  the  tabernacle  with  the  most  Blessed
Sacrament is present in the sanctuary, the priest, the
deacon,  and  the  other  ministers  genuflect  (kneel)
when they approach the altar and when they depart
from it, but not during the celebration of Mass itself.
Otherwise  all  who  pass  before  the  most  Blessed
Sacrament  genuflect,  unless  they  are  moving  in
procession (GIRM 74).

Question
Do Catholics believe in the Rapture?
Answer
The  word  Rapture  is  connected  to  the  Latin  word
rapiemur,  which  appears  in  Paul’s  first  letter  to  the
Thessalonians  in  the  Latin  Vulgate  translation  of  the
Bible. It means to be raised up or caught up:

The  dead  in  Christ  will  rise  first;  then  we  who  are
alive, who are left, shall be caught up together with
them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so
we shall always be with the Lord. (1 Thess. 4:16–17)

Therefore, Catholics believe that those Christians who are
still living at the Second Coming of Christ will be gathered
together with those who have died in Christ to be forever
with  the  Lord.  Catholics  do  not  generally  use  the  term
Rapture,  nor  do  they  believe  in  a  Rapture  that  will  take
place some time before the Second Coming, as do many
Evangelicals.

MARTYRS SHRINE AGAIN!

Saturday, June 4, 2016

The 12:15PM Choir & the Daughters of Isabella have
volunteered to sponsor our Pilgrimage to the Shrine

next year. This year’s pilgrimage was such a beautiful

experience both in terms of the spiritual experience

and the wonderful grounds and fine weather that we

want to go again.

FAST & ABSTINENCE

Catholics fast, and abstain from meat on Ash

Wednesday and Good Friday.
