PROJECT HOPE

In response to this global humanitarian crisis, Cardinal 

Thomas Collins has announced today the launch of 

“Project Hope,” a special emergency appeal to respond to 

the tragic situation.

The 100-day campaign will have a target of $3 million 

and a goal of settling 100 refugee families within the 

Greater Toronto Area as soon as possible. The effort will 

also require 100 volunteer committees to assist with 

settlement services. The archdiocese will prioritize 

refugees fleeing war and violence in areas of greatest 

need, including Syria and Iraq, regardless of religious 

affiliation.

Those wishing to support the campaign financially can 

do so in the following ways:

•           Donate through the Archdiocese of Toronto 

website at: www.archtoronto.org

•           By phone via credit card through the 

Development Office at: (416) 934-3411

•          Through St JXXIII, making cheques payable to

THE NINTH COMMANDMENT: 

YOU SHALL NOT COVET YOUR 

NEIGHBOR'S WIFE

527. What is required by the ninth 

commandment?

The ninth commandment requires that one 
overcome  carnal  concupiscence  in  thought 
and  in  desire.  The  struggle  against  such 
concupiscence  entails  purifying  the  heart 
and practicing the virtue of temperance.

528. What is forbidden by the ninth 

commandment?

T h e  n i n t h  c o m m a n d m e n t  f o r b i d s 
cultivating  thoughts  and  desires  connected 
to  actions  forbidden  by  the  sixth 
commandment.

529. How does one reach purity of heart?

In the battle against disordered desires the 
Baptised  person  is  able,  by  the  grace  of 
God, to achieve purity of heart through the 
virtue and gift of chastity, through purity of 
intention,  purity  of  vision  (both  exterior 
and  interior),  discipline  of  the  imagination 
and of feelings and by prayer.

530. What are the other requirements for 

purity?

Purity  requires  modesty  which,  while 
protecting the intimate centre of the person, 
expresses  the  sensitivity  of  chastity.  It 
guides how one looks at others and behaves 
toward them in conformity with the dignity 
of  persons  and  their  communion.  Purity 
frees  one  from  wide-spread  eroticism  and 
avoids  those  things  which  foster  morbid 
curiosity. Purity also requires a purification 
of the social climate by means of a constant 

struggle  against  moral  permissiveness 
which  is  founded  on  an  erroneous 
conception of human freedom.

CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

PART THREE: LIFE IN CHRIST 

Section Two: The Ten Commandments

NEW PARISH  CHALICE NEEDED

Current Parish Chalice Paint Is Peeling Off

The cost of replating or repainting will be 

approximately $400-$500. This is also the cost of 

replacing the same chalice with a new one.

The Parish Chalice is used during the Ordinary 

Sundays of the year and for weekday Masses.

We are looking for a family or several families to 

donate the cost of the new Chalice. Those who 

do so will have their family names inscribed on 

the underside of chalice base.

A NEW TABERNACLE STAND

IS NEEDED.

The Tabernacle will be moved from the Chapel 

into the Church. 

It will be placed on the new stand behind the altar 

and against the wooden wall beneath the 

Crucifix where priest presider currently sits. 

Costs are not yet known. However, like the 

chalice, those wishing to donate will have their 

family names inscribed on the stand.

NEW ADORATION TABERNACLE

Chapel will become an adoration centre with a 

new wooden Tabernacle placed behind the 

Chapel altar beneath the Crucifix. Tabernacle 

will host the Monstrance and the doors will be 

opened for adoration during office hours.

As with the above, those wishing to donate to 

this Tabernacle will have their family names 

inscribed.

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 c-ordinate our youth ministry.

Details to follow.

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”.

SMILE

Golfing 

An engineer, a priest, and a doctor are trying to 

enjoying a round of golf. Ahead of them is a group 

playing so slowly and inexpertly that in frustration 

the three ask the green-keeper for an explanation.

"That's a group of blind firefighters," they are told. 

"They lost their sight saving our clubhouse last 

year, so we let them play for free."

The priest says, "I will say a prayer for them 

tonight."

The doctor says, "Let me ask my ophthalmologist 

colleagues if anything can be done for them."

And the engineer says, "Why can't they play at 

night?"

BEQUEST

Give Thanks to the Lord

St John XXIII has received a bequest of $39,000 

from the estate of Klara Zathmari. Klara was in her 

90s and came to mass regularly until her final 

illness  put a stop to this in 2014. 

These monies will go towards the continuing 

renovations of our Church: new church lighting; 

hall floor replacement; carpark sink hole and 

repaving; window and door frame renovations/

replacements; etc.

Please remember to God in your prayer Klara for 

her generosity.

BEQUEST

More Thanks to the Lord

Mildred van-Dyke who passed away in 2013, a 

daily communicant and weekday lector, has 

donated in her will $10,000 which we received last 

year. Her estate trustees have recently informed us 

that there is a further $8,000 to be given to the 

parish. As with the above, we will use these monies 

for the ongoing renovations.

Please remember to God in your prayer Mildred 

for her generosity.

FEAST OF THE WEEK

Feast:

  The  Exaltation  of  the  Holy  Cross  — 

Monday,  Sept14: 

Early  in  the  fourth  century  St. 

Helena,  mother  of  the  Roman  Emperor 
Constantine, went to Jerusalem in search of the 
holy  places  of  Christ's  life.  She  razed  the 
second-century  Temple  of  Aphrodite,  which 
tradition held was built over the Savior's tomb, 
and  her  son  built  the  Basilica  of  the  Holy 
Sepulcher  over  the  tomb.  During  the 
excavation,  workers  found  three  crosses. 
Legend has it that the one on which Jesus died 
was  identified  when  its  touch  healed  a  dying 
woman.

The  cross  immediately  became  an  object  of 
veneration.  At  a  Good  Friday  celebration  in 
Jerusalem  toward  the  end  of  the  fourth 
century,  according  to  an  eyewitness,  the  wood 
was taken out of its silver container and placed 
on  a  table  together  with  the  inscription  Pilate 
ordered placed above Jesus' head: Then "all the 
people  pass  through  one  by  one;  all  of  them 
bow  down,  touching  the  cross  and  the 
inscription, first with their foreheads, then with 
their  eyes;  and,  after  kissing  the  cross,  they 
move on.”

To this day the Eastern Churches, Catholic and 
Orthodox alike, celebrate the Exaltation of the 
Holy  Cross  on  the  September  anniversary  of 
the  basilica's  dedication.  The  feast  entered  the 
Western  calendar  in  the  seventh  century  after 
Emperor  Heraclius  recovered  the  cross  from 
the Persians, who had carried it off in 614, 15 
years  earlier.  According  to  the  story,  the 
emperor  intended  to  carry  the  cross  back  into 
Jerusalem  himself,  but  was  unable  to  move 
forward until he took off his imperial garb and 
became a barefoot pilgrim.

Comment: 

The cross is today the universal image 

of  Christian  belief.  Countless  generations  of 
artists  have  turned  it  into  a  thing  of  beauty  to 
be carried in procession or worn as jewelry. To 
the eyes of the first Christians, it had no beauty. 
It stood outside too many city walls, decorated 
only  with  decaying  corpses,  as  a  threat  to 
anyone  who  defied  Rome's  authority—

including  Christians  who  refused  sacrifice  to 
Roman  gods.  Although  believers  spoke  of  the 
cross  as  the  instrument  of  salvation,  it  seldom 
appeared in Christian art unless disguised as an 
anchor or the Chi-Rho until after Constantine's 
edict of toleration.

Quote: 

"How  splendid  the  cross  of  Christ!  It 

brings  life,  not  death;  light,  not  darkness; 
Paradise,  not  its  loss.  It  is  the  wood  on  which 
the Lord, like a great warrior, was wounded in 
hands and feet and side, but healed thereby our 
wounds.  A  tree  has  destroyed  us,  a  tree  now 
brought us life" (Theodore of Studios).

Jesus

Today’s reading from Mark is the climax to 
which  his  presentation  of  the  life  of  Jesus 
to this point has been leading. The mission 
o f  J e s u s  h a s  b e e n  r e j e c t e d  a n d 
misunderstood.  It  is  essential  to  God’s 
designs  that  the  disciples  of  Jesus  do  not 
misunderstand the mission that has brought 
the  Son  forth  from  the  Father  to  bring 
healing to a lost world.

The ‘who’ question is central to our human 
existence: ‘Who are you, my companion on 
the  journey  of  life?’  ‘Who  am  I?’  These 
questions,  if  we  face  their  implications, 
confront us with the depths and mystery of 
our  common  humanity.  Jesus  called 
himself,  ‘the  Son  of  Man’,  a  title  that 
affirmed  his  sharing  in  our  human 
condition.  When  the  ‘who’  question  is 
addressed  to  him  we  find  not  only  the 
mysterious  depths  of  our  common 
humanity,  but  also  the  mystery  of  the 
generous  designs  of  God,  conceived  with 

the Son and the Holy Spirit, in the depths 
of  the  divine  eternity.  Discipleship  is 
learning,  in  the  course  of  our  lives,  the 
answer to the ‘who’ question we address to 
the  Saviour  -  who  has  made  himself  our 
ever-present  companion.  Like  Peter,  we 
shall find that we are forced to re-evaluate 
our  most  basic  assumptions  in  the  light  of 
the ways of God we learn from Jesus.

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

“Who Do You Say That I Am?”

ABSTINENCE

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. 

Abstinence on Fridays of the Year

Abstinence on these days from meat does not 

intend the omission of eggs or dairy products.

Age Requirements

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.

“BECAUSE GOD IS REAL”

by Peter Kreeft

Why Must We Die?

7.  Is  there  really  a  Hell?  Isn’t  that  belief 
primitive, crude, and cruel? Isn’t it just a popular 
myth?
No, it isn’t. In fact it’s only a popular myth 
that  Hell  doesn’t  exist.  And  it’s  also  cruel 
not

 to believe in Hell. For isn’t it cruel to tell 

skaters  on  thin  ice  that  there’s  no  water 
under  the  ice  and  that  they  can’t  possibly 
drown?

As  Heaven  is  the  object  of  our  deepest 
desire, Hell is the object of our deepest fear. 
Our  hearts  are  so  deep  that  we  don't  even 
know  our  deepest  desires  and  fears  very 
clearly.  But  we  do  know  that  these  two 
things match each other: our deepest desire 
is to be freed from our deepest fear, and our 
deepest  fear  is  that  we  fail  to  attain  our 
deepest desire. So if our deepest desire is to 
be  in  a  love  relationship  with  God—with 
infinite  understanding,  infinite  love,  and 
infinite beauty—then our deepest fear is to 
fail  to  attain  that  deepest  desire  forever,  to 
have no hope of attaining it anymore. That’s 
why  in  Dante’s  inferno  (a  poem)  the  sign 
over  the  gate  of  Hell  reads:  “Abandon  all 
hope,  ye  who  enter  here.”  As  C.S.  Lewis 
puts it in The Problem of Pain, “All your life 
an  unattainable  ecstasy  has  hovered  just 
beyond  the  grasp  of  your  consciousness. 
The  day  is  coming  when  you  will  wake  to 
find, beyond all hope, that have attained it; 
or  else,  that  it  was  within  your  reach  and 
you have lost it forever.”

If  you  understand  who  God  is—infinite 
beauty,  love,  and  truth—and  if  you 
understand  who  your  are—a  heart  that 
needs this more than it needs anything else, 
even food and drink and air—then you will 

understand  that  it  doesn’t  really  matter 
whether or not there are physical fires and 
physical  pains  in  Hell.  For  losing  God 
means  losing  everything.  And  gaining  God 
means gaining everything.

Hell must exist because if we have free will, 
then  even  though  God  loves  us  totally,  we 
can still choose not to accept His love. God 
forgives us, but we can choose not to accept 
His forgiveness. Forgiveness is a free gift of 
God,  but  a  free  gift  needs  to  be  freely 
accepted  as  well  as  freely  given.  If  we  do 
not  accept  God’s  offer  of  free  Heaven,  we 
do not have it.

No  one  goes  to  Hell  because  God  casts 
them into Hell, throws them in against their 
will.  God  is  love;  He  does  not  throw  us 
around  like  footballs.  But  that  also  means 
the  He  doesn’t  just  throw  us  into  Heaven 
like  a  football  either.  He  respects  our  free 
choice.

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

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.
