PRAYER IN THE AGE OF THE CHURCH

548. How did the first Christian community in Jerusalem

pray?

At  the  beginning  of  the Acts  of  the Apostles  it  is  written
that in the first community of Jerusalem, educated in the
life  of  prayer  by  the  Holy  Spirit,  the  faithful  “devoted
themselves  to  the  teaching  of  the  apostles  and  to  the
communal  life,  to  the  breaking  of  the  bread,  and  to  the
prayers” (Acts 2:42).

549. How does the Holy Spirit intervene in the Church’s

prayer?

The  Holy  Spirit,  the  interior  Master  of  Christian  prayer,
forms  the  Church  in  the  life  of  prayer  and  allows  her  to
enter  ever  more  deeply  into  contemplation  of  and  union
with  the  unfathomable  mystery  of  Christ.  The  forms  of
prayer  expressed  in  the  apostolic  and  canonical  writings
remain normative for Christian prayer.

550. What are the essential forms of Christian prayer?

They are blessing and adoration, the prayer of petition and
intercession,  thanksgiving  and  praise.  The  Eucharist
contains and expresses all the forms of prayer.

551. What is “blessing”?

The prayer of blessing is man’s response to God’s gifts: we
bless the Almighty who first blesses us and fills us with his
gifts.

552. How can adoration be defined?

Adoration  is  the  humble  acknowledgement  by  human
beings that they are creatures of the thrice-holy Creator.

553. What are the different forms of the prayer of

petition?

It  can  be  a  petition  for  pardon  or  also  a  humble  and
trusting  petition  for  all  our  needs  either  spiritual  or
material. The first thing to ask for, however, is the coming
of the Kingdom.

554. In what does the prayer of intercession consist?

Intercession  consists  in  asking  on  behalf  of  another.  It
conforms  us  and  unites  us  to  the  prayer  of  Jesus  who
intercedes  with  the  Father  for  all,  especially  sinners.
Intercession must extend even to one’s enemies.

555. When is thanksgiving given to God?

The Church  gives  thanks  to God  unceasingly,  above  all  in
celebrating  the  Eucharist  in  which  Christ  allows  her  to
participate in his own thanksgiving to the Father. For the
Christian every event becomes a reason for giving thanks.

556. What is the prayer of praise?

Praise  is  that  form  of  prayer  which  recognizes  most
immediately  that  God  is  God.  It  is  a  completely

disinterested prayer: it sings God’s praise for his own sake
and gives him glory simply because he is.

CHAPTER TWO

The Tradition of Prayer

557. What is the importance of Tradition in regard to

prayer?

In  the  Church  it  is  through  living Tradition  that  the  Holy
Spirit  teaches  the  children  of  God  how  to  pray.  In  fact
prayer cannot be reduced to the spontaneous outpouring
of  an  interior  impulse;  rather  it  implies  contemplation,
study and a grasp of the spiritual realities one experiences.

AT THE WELLSPRINGS OF PRAYER

558. What are the sources of Christian prayer?

They are: the Word of God which gives us “the surpassing
knowledge”  of  Christ  (Ph  3:8);  the  Liturgy  of  the  Church
that  proclaims,  makes  present  and  communicates  the
mystery of salvation; the theological virtues; and everyday
situations because in them we can encounter God.

“I love you, Lord, and the only grace I ask is
to  love  you  eternally.  …  My  God,  if  my
tongue cannot say in every moment that I
love  you,  I  want  my  heart  to  repeat  it  to
you  as  often  as  I  draw  breath.”

(The Curé  of

Ars, Saint John Mary Vianney)

CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

PART FOUR—CHRISTIAN PRAYER

LET OUR LADY BLESS YOUR HOME

In all Masses of the weekend of October 10/11 the

Heralds of the Gospel will be in our parish to introduce

the Apostolate of the Shrine of the Immaculate Heart of

Mary.

This Apostolate started with a blessing of St. John Paul II

in the year 2001 and is now spread to over 70 countries.

The apostolate consists in forming groups of 30 families

and having an icon of Our Lady of Fatima circulating

among them, passing from family to family. It aims to

make reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for

the offences it receives from mankind in our days. At

Fatima Our Lady said, “Jesus wants to establish devotion

to My Immaculate Heart in the world. I promise salvation

to those who embrace it”.

YOUTH MINISTER

The Archdiocese of Toronto & Family of Faith have

agreed to St JXXIII’s request for financing of a youth

minister.

A qualified part-time youth minister, at $24,000 per year

—and not a member of this parish—will he hired to co-

ordinate our youth ministry. Details to follow.

SMILE

Swish

A man goes to the Doctor, worried about his wife's

temper.

The Doctor asks: "What's the problem?"

The man says: "Doctor, I don't know what to do. Every

day my wife seems to lose her temper for no reason. It

scares me."

The Doctor says: "I have a cure for that. When it seems

that your wife is getting angry, just take a glass of water

and start swishing it in your mouth. Just swish and swish

but don't swallow it until she either leaves the room or

calms down."

Two weeks later the man comes back to the doctor

looking fresh and reborn.

The man says: "Doctor that was a brilliant idea! Every

time my wife started losing it, I swished with water. I

swished and swished, and she calmed right down! How

does a glass of water do that?"

The Doctor says: "The water itself does nothing. It's

keeping your mouth shut that does the trick."

Optional  Memorial:  St  Callistus  1

st

,  Pope,  Martry,

Wednesday, October 14: — St. Pius V established this feast
in  1573.  The  most  reliable  information  about  this  saint
comes from his enemy St. Hippolytus, an early antipope,
later a martyr for the Church. A negative principle is used:
If  some  worse  things  had  happened,  Hippolytus  would
surely have mentioned them.

Callistus was a slave in the imperial Roman household. Put
in  charge  of  the  bank  by  his  master,  he  lost  the  money
deposited,  fled  and  was  caught. After  serving  time  for  a
while, he was released to make some attempt to recover
the  money.  Apparently  he  carried  his  zeal  too  far,  being
arrested for brawling in a Jewish synagogue. This time he
was condemned to work in the mines of Sardinia. He was
released  through  the  influence  of  the  emperor's  mistress
and  lived  at  Anzio  (site  of  a  famous  World  War  II
beachhead).

After  winning  his  freedom,  Callistus  was  made
superintendent  of  the  public  Christian  burial  ground  in
Rome  (still  called  the  cemetery  of St. Callistus),  probably
the first land owned by the Church. The pope ordained him
a deacon and made him his friend and adviser.

He was elected pope by a majority vote of the clergy and
laity of Rome, and thereafter was bitterly attacked by the
losing candidate, St. Hippolytus, who let himself be set up
as  the  first  antipope  in  the  history  of  the  Church.  The
schism lasted about 18 years.

Hippolytus is venerated as a saint. He was banished during
the persecution of 235 and was reconciled to the Church.
He  died  from  his  sufferings  in  Sardinia.  He  attacked
Callistus  on  two  fronts—doctrine  and  discipline.
Hippolytus  seems  to  have  exaggerated  the  distinction
between  Father  and  Son  (almost  making  two  gods)
possibly  because  theological  language  had  not  yet  been
refined. He also accused Callistus of being too lenient, for
reasons  we  may  find  surprising:  1)  Callistus  admitted  to
Holy  Communion  those  who  had  already  done  public
penance  for  murder,  adultery,  fornication;  2)  he  held
marriages  between  free  women  and  slaves  to  be  valid—
contrary to Roman law; 3) he authorized the ordination of
men who had been married two or three times; 4) he held
that  mortal  sin  was  not  a  sufficient  reason  to  depose  a
bishop; 5) he held to a policy of leniency toward those who
had temporarily denied their faith during persecution.

Callistus  was  martyred  during  a  local  disturbance  in
Trastevere, Rome, and is the first pope (except for Peter)
to  be  commemorated  as  a  martyr  in  the  earliest
martyrology of the Church.

Comment: The life of this man is another reminder that the
course  of Church  history,  like  that  of  true  love,  never  did

run smooth. The Church had to (and still must) go through
the agonizing struggle to state the mysteries of the faith in
language that, at the very least, sets up definite barriers to
error. On the disciplinary side, the Church had to preserve
the  mercy  of Christ  against  rigorism  while  still  upholding
the  gospel  ideal  of  radical  conversion  and  self-discipline.
Every  pope—indeed  every  Christian—must  walk  the
difficult  path  between  "reasonable"  indulgence  and
"reasonable" rigorism.

Quote: His contemporaries, Jesus said, were "like children
who  sit  in  marketplaces  and  call  to  one  another,  'We
played the flute for you, but you did not dance, we sang a
dirge but you did not mourn.' For John [the Baptist] came
neither eating nor drinking, and they said, 'He is possessed
by  a  demon.' The  Son  of  Man  came  eating  and  drinking
and  they  said,  'Look,  he  is  a  glutton  and  a  drunkard,  a
friend of tax collectors and sinners'" (Matthew 11:16b-19a).

Young Man

Notes on the text

“Lord, what should I do?” - a question essential to a
Christian  life  well  lived.  The  alternative  –  drifting
along  without  responsible  reflection  –  is  a  wasted
life. The  reply  of  Jesus  to  the  young  man  who  puts
this  question  to  him  is  surprising.  The  community
that  gave  us  Mark’s  gospel  certainly  believed  that
Jesus was God’s unique Son. The response given by
Jesus  reflects  a  constant  pattern  in  his  teaching:  he
wanted  to  lead  his  hearers  to  the  Father.  Like  the
young  man,  we  will  only  find  the  answer  to  the
question of what direction our life should take in the
presence  of  the  One  Jesus  called  his  “God”  and
“Father.” The life of all who live “in Christ” is one and
the  same;  there  are,  however,  different  forms  of
discipleship.

- From a homily on the Gospel by Fr John Thornhill sm

Commentary 2 – Imagination does not always allow
us to cope with invitation

The  rich  man  had  received  an  answer  he  didn’t
expect.  It  was  an  answer  he  couldn’t  cope  with.  He
turned  away  because  he  had  too  many  other
possessions. He probably hoped to be asked to be a
benefactor,  maybe  to  enable  Jesus’  work  through
philanthropy.

The  young  man  of  the  Gospel  was  flawed  because
the  invitation  was  outside  his  imagination.  He
wanted  the  idea  of  spiritual  growth  without  cost  to
himself. He sought spiritual riches but couldn’t cope
with the loss of earthly riches.

Jesus then addressed his disciples. “If you’re rich it’s
hard  to  be  a  kingdom  person.”  Jesus  didn’t  say
“impossible”. Just hard.

We  then  have  the  wonderfully  exaggerated  picture
of pushing a camel through a needle, a kind of verbal
cartoon. It had the desired effect. The disciples were
overwhelmed.  They  ventured  the  opinion  that  the
membership of the kingdom would be quite small.

This  is  an  important  understanding  because  the
disciples  recognised  that  possessions  come  in  all
shapes  and  sizes.  They  don’t  even  have  to  be
material. Peter was quick to point out that some of
them  had  already  put  aside  everything.  Jesus  then
tells  them  that  the  ability  to  be  a  follower  comes
from God who will give the strength needed.

Why Must We Die?

10. How does Jesus fit into all this?

He Himself tells us the answer to that question: “I am
the  door”  (Jn  10:9);  “I  am  the  resurrection  and  the
life” (Jn 11:25); “I am the way, and the truth, and the
life; no one comes to the Father but by me” (Jn 14:6).

This  does  not  mean  that  only  Christians  can  be
saved. But it means that when anyone is saved, it is
Christ who saves him.

Christ  did  not  say,  “Only  Christians  will  be  saved.”
Rather,  He  said,  “All  who  seek,  will  find;  all  who
knock,  to  them  the  door  will  be  opened”  (see  Mt
7:7-8).  There  will  probably  be  many  good,  God-
seeking Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, and even
agnostics in Heaven. But when they get there, they
will discover that is was Jesus who got them there.

Christians  don’t  claim  to  be  the  only  ones  who  are
saved.  But  they  do  claim  that  Jesus  is  the  only
Saviour—because Jesus Himself claimed that. It’s not
arrogant for us to claim that. It would be arrogant for
us  to  deny  it,  because  then  we  would  be  denying
what  Jesus  told  us,  judging  Jesus  as  wrong,  setting
ourselves us as His judge and claiming to correct His
mistakes  and  exaggerations.  If  that’s  not  arrogant,
what is?

A Christian is one who has been given the incredible
gift  of  knowing  Christ.  With  greater  knowledge
comes  greater  responsibility.  God  doesn't  give  us
knowledge  just  to  satisfy  our  curiosity  but  for  us  to
act  on  that  knowledge.  That  is  why  we  need  the
sacrament  of  Confirmation:  to  prepare  us  for  adult
action,  and  adult  life,  adult  faith,  adult
responsibilities. Adulthood is not a concept; it is real.
And  to  succeed  at  it,  we  need  to  be  confirmed
(strengthened)  with  the  God  who  is  real,  in  fact  is
more real than anything else.

want to go again.
