PRAYER IS FULLY REVEALED

AND REALIZED IN JESUS

541. From whom did Jesus learn how to pray?

Jesus,  with  his  human  heart,  learned  how  to  pray
from  his  mother  and  from  the Jewish  tradition.  But
his prayer sprang from a more secret source because
he is the eternal Son of God who in his holy humanity
offers his perfect filial prayer to his Father.

542. When did Jesus pray?

The Gospel often shows Jesus at prayer. We see him
draw  apart  to  pray  in  solitude,  even  at  night.  He
prays before the decisive moments of his mission or
that  of  his  apostles.  In  fact,  all  his  life  is  a  prayer
because he is in a constant communion of love with
the Father.

543. How did Jesus pray during his passion?

The prayer of Jesus during his agony in the garden of
Gethsemani  and  his  last  words  on  the  cross  reveal
the  depth  of  his  filial  prayer.  Jesus  brings  to
completion  the  loving  plan  of  the  Father  and  takes
upon himself all the anguish of humanity and all the
petitions  and  intercessions  of  the  history  of
salvation.  He  presents  them  to  the  Father  who
accepts them and answers them beyond all hope by
raising his Son from the dead.

544. How does Jesus teach us to pray?

Jesus teaches us to pray not only with the Our Father
but also when he prays. In this way he teaches us, in
addition  to  the  content,  the  dispositions  necessary
for every true prayer: purity of heart that seeks the
Kingdom and forgives one’s enemies, bold and filial
faith that goes beyond what we feel and understand,
and  watchfulness  that  protects  the  disciple  from
temptation.

545. Why is our prayer successful?

Our prayer is successful because it is united in faith
with  the  prayer  of  Jesus.  In  him  Christian  prayer
becomes  a  communion  of  love  with  the  Father.  In
this way we can present our petitions to God and be
heard: “Ask and you will receive that your joy may be
full” (John 16:24).

546. How did the Virgin Mary pray?

Mary’s prayer was characterized by faith and by the
generous  offering  of  her  whole  being  to  God.  The
Mother of Jesus is also the new Eve, the “Mother of
all the living”. She prays to Jesus for the needs of all
people.

547. Is there a prayer of Mary in the Gospel?

Along with the prayer of Mary at Cana in Galilee, the
Gospel gives us the Magnificat (Luke 1:46-55) which
is  the  song  both  of  the  Mother  of  God  and  of  the
Church,  the  joyous  thanksgiving  that  rises  from  the
hearts of the poor because their hope is met by the
fulfillment of the divine promises.

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.

Drinks for all except for him

A racist walks into a crowded bar. He looks around and

sees a black man sat in a corner. The racist walks up to

the bar, turns around and announces, "I'm going to buy

everyone in this bar a free drink, except for that black guy

over there!" Everybody is clapping and cheering for the

racist and when he buys the last pint, the black man turns

around, puts his thumb up and says, "Thanks mate!" The

racist is slightly puzzled by his reaction but doesn't pay

too much attention to it.

The next night, the racist goes into the same bar and

again, there is a black guy sat in the corner, so the man,

again, goes to the bar, turns around and says, "I'm going

to buy everyone here a free drink, except for that black

guy over there!" The crowd are all ecstatic and are

hugging and cheering the racist for his generosity. When

he buys the last pint, the black guy turns around, puts his

thumb up and says, "Thanks mate!" The racist scratches

his head and asks the barman, "Why is that black guy

thanking me when he's the only person I'm not buying

drinks for?"

"Well" the barman responds, "he owns this place."

Memorial: Our Lady of the Rosary, Wednesday,

October 7: — St. Pius V established this feast in

1573.  The  purpose  was  to  thank  God  for  the

victory of Christians over the Turks at Lepanto—

a victory attributed to the praying of the rosary.

Clement XI extended the feast to the universal

Church in 1716.

The  development  of  the  rosary  has  a  long

history.  First,  a  practice  developed  of  praying

150 Our Fathers in imitation of the 150 Psalms.

Then  there  was  a  parallel  practice  of  praying

150 Hail Marys. Soon a mystery of Jesus' life was

attached  to

e a c h  H a i l

M a r y .

rosary  to  St.

Dominic  is

recognized

as  a  legend,

t

h

e

development

of this prayer

form  owes

much  to  the  followers  of  St.  Dominic.  One  of

them,  Alan  de  la  Roche,  was  known  as  "the

apostle  of  the  rosary."  He  founded  the  first

Confraternity of the Rosary in the 15th century.

In the 16th century the rosary was developed to

its present form—with the 15 mysteries (joyful,

sorrowful and glorious). In 2002, Pope John Paul

II added five “Mysteries of Light (Luminous)” to

this devotion.

Comment: The  purpose  of  the  rosary  is  to  help

us  meditate  on  the  great  mysteries  of  our

salvation. Pius XII called it a compendium of the

Gospel. The  main  focus  is  on  Jesus—his  birth,

life,  death  and  resurrection.  The  Our  Fathers

remind  us  that  Jesus'  Father  is  the  initiator  of

salvation. The Hail Marys remind us to join with

Mary  in  contemplating  these  mysteries.  They

also  make  us  aware  that  Mary  was  and  is

intimately  joined  with  her  Son  in  all  the

mysteries of his earthly and heavenly existence.

The Glory Bs remind us that the purpose of all

life is the glory of the Trinity.

The  rosary  appeals  to  many.  It  is  simple.  The

constant  repetition  of  words  helps  create  an

atmosphere  in  which  to  contemplate  the

mysteries of God. We sense that Jesus and Mary

are  with  us  in  the  joys  and  sorrows  of  life. We

grow in hope that God will bring us to share in

the glory of Jesus and Mary forever.

Quote:  “The  Rosary,  though  clearly  Marian  in

character, is at heart a Christ-centered prayer. It

has  all  the  depth  of  the  Gospel  messge  in  its

entirety. It is an echo of the prayer of Mary, her

perennial  Magnificat  for  the  work  of  the

redemptive  Incarnation  which  began  in  her

virginal  womb....  It  can  be  said  that  the  rosary

is, in some sense, a prayer-commentary on the

final  chapter  of  the  Vatican  II  Constitution

Lumen  Gentium,  a  chapter  that  discusses  the

wondrous presence of the Mother of God in the

mystery of Christ and the Church"

DON’T MESS WITH MARRIAGE

Respect,  Compassion  and  Sensitivity:  …Many  of  us
have  family  members  and  close  friends  who
experience same-sex attraction. We know them to be
loving people striving as we all do to live a good life
and  deeply  loved  by  God. We  are  aware  of  the  joy
which  their  relationships,  their  deep  friendships,
bring into their lives. We naturally and rightly want to
love and support them. We certainly do not want to
condemn  them  or  cut  them  off  from  their  families
and friends, and nor should we.

The question of "same-sex marriage" however is not
about condemnation, discrimination or rejection. It is
about  the  nature  of  marriage  and  the  importance
which  the  institution  of  marriage  has  in  our  society
and has had for many centuries….

Marriage and Family Link: Marriage, at least up until
now,  has  been  understood  in  our  society  to  be  an
institution  which  formalises,  supports  and
strengthens  the  relationship  between  a  man  and  a
woman  who  commit  themselves  to  each  other  in
mutual  love  and  who,  through  that  commitment,
form  a  "community"  in  which  their  children,  should
they be so fortunate as to have them, can grow up. It
is this fundamental link between marriage and which
makes  the  institution  of  marriage  a  fundamental
building block of our society.

All human beings deserve to be created through the
love of their parents, and to be nurtured in the family
community formed by the love of their parents. …

Marriage is, therefore, about more than the mutual
love  and  support  which  the  two  partners  in  the
marriage ideally offer to one another. It is also, and

equally,  about  any  children  who  might  form  part  of
the family. It is about their fundamental right to grow
up, if at all possible, with both their mother and their
father. Hence, marriage is a very significant and very
particular  relationship.  It  deserves  special
recognition,  special  support  and  a  unique  status  in
our society.

Focus  on  Strengthening  Marriage:  We  all  know,  of
course,  that  the  ideal  of  marriage  is  not  always
realised  in  practice.  Often,  marriages  fail;  many
parents are left to bring up their children alone; and
many  marriages  are,  to  the  sorrow  of  the  couples
concerned, childless. It is because of these difficulties
that we should be doing all we can to put our energy
and attention into strengthening this vital institution
rather  than  weakening  it  further  by  seeking  to
change its time-honoured nature.

This  is  what…  ‘same-sex  marriage’  means.  To
redefine  marriage  so  that  it  covers  other  kinds  of
relationships,  such  as  same-sex  relationships,  is  to
sever or, at best, relativise the essential link between
marriage  and  the  family….  It  is  to  change  the
institution  of  marriage  from  what  it  is  today  to
something very different.

Reject  Unjust  Discrimination:  None  of  this  suggests
that  there  should  be  any  unjust  discrimination
against same-sex couples.…

Propose with Respect and Concern: From our point of
view, as Catholics, … We offer the Church's view as an
important  contribution  to  the  discussion. We  do  so
respectfully but with genuine concern that the well-
being  and  common  good  of  our  society,  and  of  our
families in particular, is in play….

Why Must We Die?

9. What difference does this all make to life here and
now? How does this Catholic map of the future change
the  present?  What  difference  does  eternity  make  to
Monday morning?

It  makes  life  infinitely  dramatic.  The  stakes  are
eternal.  Our  choices  are  choices  of  different  roads,
and  there  is  not  one  road  that  does  not  eventually
lead to either Heaven or Hell, infinite bliss or infinite
misery,  unimaginable  ecstasy  or  unimaginable
failure, all or nothing. Heaven is the eternal presence
of infinite joy, given to us by God , the source of all
joy. Hell is the eternal absence of that, of all joy. The
difference is total. The difference is infinite.

You  can  have  infinite  passion  only  about  something
that  makes  an  infinite  difference—ultimately,  only
about  Heaven  and  Hell. That’s  why  Jesus  said  such
passionate  things  about  Hell.  For  instance,  He  said,
“If your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw
it from you; it is better for you to enter [eternal] life
with  one  eye  than  with  two  eyes  to  be  thrown  into
the hell of fire” (Mt18:9). This sounds fanatical, but it
is actually totally reasonable. “For what does it profit
a  man,  to  gain  the  whole  world  and  forfeit  his  life
[soul]?” (Mk8:36). No man in the history of the world
has  ever  uttered  a  more  practical,  more  reasonable
sentence than that one.

Life after death also makes and infinite difference in
how  we  treat  each  other  now,  in  this  life.  If  we
believe  we  are  only  clever  apes  with  bigger  brains
who live for no more than a hundred years, then how
will we treat each other? Like clever apes with bigger
brains  who  live  for  no  more  than  a  hundred  years!
And  then  nations  would  be  more  important  than
individuals,  for  nations  live  much  longer.  But  if  we
believe  we  are  more  like  angels  than  apes;  if  we
believe we are the kids of King God, not the kids of
King Kong; then we will treat each other that way: as
infinitely  precious  and  as  infinitely  more  important
than nations because when all nations are dead, each

of us will still be alive. In fact, billions of years from
now  when  the  very  stars  have  died,  we  will  still  be
young.

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

and the wonderful grounds and fine weather that we

want to go again.
