THE WAY OF PRAYER

559. In the Church are there different ways of

praying?

In the Church there are various ways of praying that
are  tied  to  different  historical,  social  and  cultural
contexts. The Magisterium of the Church has the task
of discerning the fidelity of these ways of praying to
the  tradition  of  apostolic  faith.  It  is  for  pastors  and
catechists  to  explain  their  meaning  which  is  always
related to Jesus Christ.

560. What is the way of our prayer?

The  way  of  our  prayer  is  Christ  because  prayer  is
directed to God our Father but reaches him only if we
pray – at least implicitly – in the name of Jesus. His
humanity is in effect the only way by which the Holy
Spirit  teaches  us  to  pray  to  our  Father.  Therefore
liturgical  prayers  conclude  with  the  formula:
“Through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

561. What is the role of the Holy Spirit in prayer?

Since  the  Holy  Spirit  is  the  interior  Master  of
Christian prayer and “we do not know how to pray as
we ought” (Romans 8:26), the Church exhorts us to
invoke  him  and  implore  him  on  every  occasion:
“Come, Holy Spirit!”

562. How is Christian prayer Marian?

Because of her singular cooperation with the action
of the Holy Spirit, the Church loves to pray to Mary
and  with  Mary,  the  perfect  ‘pray-er’,  and  to
“magnify”  and  invoke  the  Lord  with  her.  Mary  in
effect  shows  us  the  “Way”  who  is  her Son,  the  one
and only Mediator.

563. How does the Church pray to Mary?

Above all with the Hail Mary, the prayer with which
the Church asks the intercession of the Virgin. Other
Marian prayers are the Rosary, the Akathistos hymn,
the  Paraclesis,  and  the  hymns  and  canticles  of
diverse Christian traditions.

GUIDES FOR PRAYER

564. How are the saints guides for prayer?

The  saints  are  our  models  of  prayer.  We  also  ask
them to intercede before the Holy Trinity for us and
for the whole world. Their intercession is their most
exalted  service  to God’s  plan.  In  the  communion  of
saints,  throughout  the  history  of  the  Church,  there
have  developed  different  types  of  spiritualities  that
teach  us  how  to  live  and  to  practice  the  way  of
prayer.

565. Who can educate us in prayer?

The Christian family is the first place of education in
prayer.  Daily  family  prayer  is  particularly
recommended  because  it  is  the  first  witness  to  the
life  of  prayer  in  the  Church.  Catechesis,  prayer
groups,  and  “spiritual  direction”  constitute  a  school
of and a help to prayer.

566. What places are conducive to prayer?

One  can  pray  anywhere  but  the  choice  of  an
appropriate  place  is  not  a  matter  of  indifference
when  it  comes  to  prayer. The  church  is  the  proper
place for liturgical prayer and Eucharistic adoration.
Other places also help one to pray, such as a “prayer
corner” at home, a monastery or a shrine.

NEW STAND FOR BLESSED

SACRAMENT TABERNACLE

Tabernacle and Stand will be placed where

priest currently sits.

Dear Friends, with the placement of the

Blessed Sacrament in the Church, we have

to become accustomed to a new/old habit.

Upon entrance into pew, on arrival in Church,

Catholics genuflect (kneel) toward the

Blessed Sacrament; when departing Church

we genuflect to the Sacrament too.

Priest and Altar Servers, too, will genuflect to

Jesus in the Tabernacle upon arrival and

departure from the Altar.

THANKS

St Vincent d’Paul thanks all parishioners who so

generously donated food or the Thanksgiving

Drive.

SMILE

The Navy

The crusty Navy Master Chief noticed a new face and

barked at him, "Get over here! What's your name, sailor?"

"John," the new seaman replied.

"Look, I don't know what kind of bleeding-heart pansy

crap they're teaching sailors in boot camp these days, but

I don't call anyone by his first name," the chief scowled.

"It breeds familiarity, and that leads to a breakdown in

authority. I refer to my sailors by their last names only;

Smith, Jones, Baker, Jackson, whatever. And you are to

refer to me as 'Master Chief.’ Do I make myself clear?"

"Aye, Aye, Master Chief!"

"Now that we've got that straight, what's your last

name?"

The seaman sighed. "Darling, My name is John Darling,

Master Chief."

"Okay, John, here's what I want you to do ...."

LECTIO DIVINA WITH

CARDINAL THOMAS COLLINS

Sunday, November 1 @ 7PM

St. Peter's Parish

840 Bathurst St., Toronto

Lectio Divina ("divine, or sacred, reading") is the

name given to a spiritual tradition among

Christians over the last two thousand years. This

form of prayer involves three distinct stages: a)

reading a short scripture passage b) reflecting on

the passage and c) a short period of silence. We

begin with Vespers (Evening Prayer) at 7 p.m.,

followed by Lectio Divina from 7:30 to 8:15 p.m.

All are welcome to join Cardinal Collins for this

special evening of prayer. Lectio Divina is

recorded by Salt & Light Catholic Media for future

broadcast.

During the extensive renovations at St. Michael's

Cathedral, Lectio Divina will be traveling to

parishes around the archdiocese in 2015/2016.

Optional  Memorial:  St  Margaret  Mary  Alacoque,  Virgin,
Tuesday,  October  20:
 —  Margaret  Mary  was  chosen  by
Christ to arouse the Church to a realization of the love of
God symbolized by the heart of Jesus.

Her  early  years  were  marked  by  sickness  and  a  painful
home  situation.  "The  heaviest  of  my  crosses  was  that  I
could  do  nothing  to  lighten  the  cross  my  mother  was
suffering."  After  considering  marriage  for  some  time,
Margaret Mary entered the Order of Visitation nuns at the
age of 24.

A Visitation  nun  was  "not  to  be  extraordinary  except  by
being ordinary," but the young nun was not to enjoy this
anonymity. A  fellow  novice  (shrewdest  of  critics)  termed
Margaret  Mary  humble,  simple  and  frank,  but  above  all
kind and patient under sharp criticism and correction. She
could  not  meditate  in  the  formal  way  expected,  though
she  tried  her  best  to  give  up  her  "prayer  of  simplicity."
Slow,  quiet  and  clumsy,  she  was  assigned  to  help  an
infirmarian who was a bundle of energy.

On December 21, 1674, three years a nun, she received the
first  of  her  revelations.  She  felt  "invested"  with  the
presence of God, though always afraid of deceiving herself
in such matters. The request of Christ was that his love for
humankind  be

m a d e  e v i d e n t

t h r o u g h  h e r.

During the next 13

m o n t h s  h e

appeared to her at

intervals.  His

human  heart  was

to be the symbol

o f  h i s  d i v i n e -

human  love.  By

her  own  love  she

was  to  make  up

for  the  coldness

and  ingratitude

of  the  world—by

f r e q u e n t  a n d

l o v i n g  H o l y

C o m m u n i o n ,

especially  on  the

first  Friday  of

each  month,  and

by  an  hour's  vigil  of  prayer  every  Thursday  night  in
memory of his agony and isolation in Gethsemane. He also
asked that a feast of reparation be instituted.

Like  all  saints,  Margaret  Mary  had  to  pay  for  her  gift  of
holiness.  Some  of  her  own  sisters  were  hostile.
Theologians  who  were  called  in  declared  her  visions
delusions and suggested that she eat more heartily. Later,
parents of children she taught called her an impostor, an
unorthodox  innovator. A  new  confessor,  St. Claude  de  la
Colombiere,  a  Jesuit,  recognized  her  genuineness  and
supported  her. Against  her  great  resistance, Christ  called
her  to  be  a  sacrificial  victim  for  the  shortcomings  of  her
own sisters, and to make this known.

After serving as novice mistress and assistant superior, she
died at the age of 43 while being anointed. "I need nothing
but God, and to lose myself in the heart of Jesus."

Comment: Our scientific-materialistic age cannot "prove"
private revelations. Theologians, if pressed, admit that we
do not have to believe in them. But it is impossible to deny
the  message  Margaret  Mary  heralded:  that God  loves  us
with  a  passionate  love.  Her  insistence  on  reparation  and
prayer  and  the  reminder  of  final  judgment  should  be
sufficient  to  ward  off  superstition  and  superficiality  in
devotion  to  the  Sacred  Heart  while  preserving  its  deep
Christian meaning.

Quote:  Christ  speaks  to  St.  Margaret  Mary:  "Behold  this
Heart which has so loved men that it has spared nothing,
even to exhausting and consuming itself, in order to testify
its  love.  In  return,  I  receive  from  the  greater  part  only
ingratitude, by their irreverence and sacrileges, and by the
coldness and contempt they have for me in this sacrament
of love.... I come into the heart I have given you in order
that through your fervour you may atone for the offences
which  I  have  received  from  lukewarm  and  slothful  hearts
that  dishonour  me  in  the  Blessed  Sacrament"  (Third
apparition).

Jesus

Notes on the text
Our Christian language often speaks of “conversion.”
The  incident  we  are  considering  points  to  the  fact
that true conversion is much more than a reform of
personal  morals.  It  is  a  revolution  in  our
understanding of what our life “in Christ” means; it is
the  starting  point  of  true  discipleship.  Jesus  now
urges  the  twelve  to  be  converted,  to  broaden  their
vision, change their values – by identifying with the
paradoxical  ways  of God  that  are  the  subject  of  his
reflections as he journeys to Jerusalem. If they are to
be leaders and guides in the community of disciples,
their  exercise  in  authority  must  be  more  than  the
realisation of their ambitions for a place of prestige
and power. If they want to be truly great, they must
make themselves “servants” – even “slaves” – of all.

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

Commentary 2 – Consider how we relate to Jesus,
especially through prayers
We  never  completely  grow  out  of  our  need  to  be
special. Today’s Gospel  brings  that  point  home. The
opening  scene  has  James  and  John--the  “Sons  of
Thunder”—saying to Jesus, “Teacher, we want you to
do for us whatever we ask of you.”

Instead of Jesus saying, “Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?”
he gives them more rope doesn’t he? “What do you
want me to do for you?” he answers. This brings out
what might be a key question raised in the Scriptures
we hear today. What do you pray for? Or even more
pointedly, how do you relate to Jesus?

Are you one of those people who are inclined to say
general prayers, such as “Lord, please bring peace to
the  world”?  Or  perhaps  more  personally,  “Give  me
peace  in  my  heart”?  At  least  this  way  of  praying
doesn’t  presume  to  tell  God  exactly  what  to  do  as
though he is our puppet.

General  prayers  are  good.  Certainly  peace  in  the
world  is  a  good  thing  to  pray  for.  However,  a  little
specificity  can  help  us  and God  to  be  real  when  we
pray. Otherwise we hide our deepest needs and cop
out by the idea that God already knows what I need,
so  why  pray... The  main  point  I  want  to  offer  from
this  Gospel  is  that  we  need  to  be  as  real  in  our
prayers as in our human relationships or there is no
real intimacy.

How soon is "as soon as possible"

to confess a mortal sin?

Full Question
The  Catechism  (1452)  says  that  perfect  contrition
needs to include the intent to go to confession “as
soon  as  possible”  for  the  contrition  to  obtain
forgiveness  of  mortal  sins.  Does  this  mean  that
after  such  a  sin,  I  ought  to  call  and  make  an
appointment straightaway, or grab the priest after
Mass,  or  is  it  enough  to  go  to  the  next  regularly
scheduled confession time?
Answer
T
he  tricky  thing  about  making  a  perfect  act  of
contrition is that one never knows if it is perfect. So,
“as  soon  as  possible”  means  as  soon  as  possible:
making  an  appointment  right  away  or  asking  the
priest when you see him to hear your confession. I
wouldn’t receive Holy Communion until I knew that
I  was  in  the  state  of  grace.  Otherwise,  I  could  be
offending our Lord with the mortal sin. Nothing is
worth such an offense against him who loves us so
much.

Isn't hell incompatible with a loving God?

Full Question
I  know  the  Bible  teaches  there's  a  hell,  but  I  don't
believe it. Hell is incompatible with God's love.

Answer
It's not, because God gave us the power to choose,
which  is  essential  to  the  ability  to  love. To  choose
God is heaven, to reject him is hell. Why? Because
God  is  the  source  of  all  goodness,  life,  and
happiness.  If  you  turn  away  from  him,  you're
turning away from these things too.

What kind of heaven would it be if God forced those
who  don't  love  him  to  spend  eternity  with  him?
Would  that  be  loving?  Would  it  be  any  less  a
torment for them than hell?

If  you  believe  in  a  loving  God  who  allows  evil  to
exist in the world, you can't very well deny hell on
the  grounds God  wouldn't  permit  it.  If God  allows
bad  things  to  happen  to  good  people  in  this  life,
why shouldn't he allow bad things to happen to bad
people  in  the  next,  especially  if  they  choose  it  for
themselves?

Saturday, June 4, 2016

The 12:15PM Choir & the Daughters of Isabella have

experience both in terms of the spiritual experience

and the wonderful grounds and fine weather that we

want to go again.
