neighbourhoods...

“I  would  like  to  take  this  opportunity  to

encourage  the  community  of  Peel  to  be  a

part  of  the  healing  journey  with  Catholic

Family  Services  of  Peel-Dufferin  (CFSPD).

It’s a great organization that demonstrates

care,  support  and  compassion  toward  our

well-being  and  healing  processes.  Since  I

began  with  this  agency,  it  has  been  a

transformational experience. I have gained

so  much  knowledge  and  insight  about

myself  and  others  and  have  made  great

friends  and  enjoy  meeting  new  people.  I

would  like  to  thank  ShareLife  and  CFSPD

for allowing me this opportunity to be part

of  their  family  and  am  very  grateful  for  all

the  services  they  provided  for  me  and  the

community at large.”

CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 
PART ONE—THE PROFESSION OF FAITH 

“I BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST,

THE ONLY SON OF GOD.”

“Jesus Christ was conceived by the power

of the Holy Spirit, and was born of the Virgin Mary”

90. Did the incarnate Son of God have a soul with

human knowledge?

The  Son  of  God  assumed  a  body  animated  by  a
rational  human  soul. With  his  human  intellect Jesus
learned many things by way of experience; but also
as  man  the  Son  of  God  had  an  intimate  and
immediate knowledge of God his Father. He likewise
understood  people’s  secret  thoughts  and  he  knew
fully the eternal plans which he had come to reveal.

91. How did the two wills of the incarnate Word

cooperate?

Jesus had a divine will and a human will. In his earthly
life  the  Son  of  God  humanly  willed  all  that  he  had
divinely decided with the Father and the Holy Spirit
for  our  salvation. The  human  will  of Christ  followed
without opposition or reluctance the divine will or, in
other words, it was subject to it.

92. Did Christ have a true human body?

Christ  assumed  a  true  human  body  by  means  of
which  the  invisible  God  became  visible.  This  is  the
reason why Christ can be represented and venerated
in sacred images.

93. What does the heart of Jesus exemplify?

Jesus knew us and loved us with a human heart. His
Heart, pierced for our salvation, is the symbol of that
infinite love with which he loves the Father and each
one of us.

94. What is the meaning of the expression

“conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit...”?

This  expression  means  that  the  Virgin  Mary
conceived the eternal Son in her womb by the power
of the Holy Spirit without the cooperation of a man.
The angel told her at the Annunciation that “the Holy
Spirit will come upon you” (Luke 1:35).

95. “...Born of the Virgin Mary”: Why is Mary truly

the Mother of God?

Mary  is  truly  the  Mother  of God  because  she  is  the
Mother of Jesus (John 2:1, John 19:25). The One who
was  conceived  by  the  power  of  the  Holy  Spirit  and
became  truly  her Son  is  actually  the  eternal Son  of
God the Father. He is God himself.

96. What does the “Immaculate Conception”

mean?

God  freely  chose  Mary  from  all  eternity  to  be  the
Mother of his Son. In order to carry out her mission
she  herself  was  conceived  immaculate. This  means
that, thanks to the grace of God and in anticipation
of  the  merits  of  Jesus  Christ,  Mary  was  preserved
from  original  sin  from  the  first  instant  of  her
conception.

97. How does Mary cooperate in the divine plan of

salvation?

By the grace of God Mary was kept free from every
personal sin her whole life long. She is the one who is
“full  of  grace”  (Luke  1:28),  “the  all  holy”. When  the
angel announced to her that she would give birth to
“the  Son  of  the  Most  High”  (Luke  1:32),  she  freely
gave  her  consent  with  “the  obedience  of
faith” (Romans 1:5). Mary thus gave herself entirely
to the person and work of her Son Jesus, espousing
wholeheartedly the divine will regarding salvation.

HOW TO OBTAIN THE JUBILEE INDULGENCE

For those able to make a pilgrimage to one of the

Jubilee churches in Rome, that is certainly an option.

Otherwise, there are eight churches within the

Archdiocese of Toronto with a Holy Door of Mercy.

Going through one of these Holy Doors is a spiritual

journey that shows, as the Holy Father said, "the deep

desire for true conversion.” In addition to passing

through a Holy Door, each pilgrim is to:

1. receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation,

2. receive the Holy Eucharist while reflecting on God's

great gift of mercy,

3. make a profession of faith (recite either the Apostles'

or the Nicene Creed), and

4. pray for the Holy Father and for his intentions (an Our

Father and a Hail Mary are recommended).

For those who are elderly, confined and the ill, Pope

Francis said that they may obtain the indulgence:

1. by "living with faith and joyful hope this moment of

trial" and

2. by receiving the Eucharist or by attending Mass and

community prayer, "even through the various means of

communication" (for instance, a Mass offered on

television).

For those in prison, they may obtain the indulgence in

their prison chapels.

Indulgences may be obtained for the dead by the

carrying out of these same acts by the Faithful with the

intention of offering the indulgence for someone who is

deceased.

Optional  Memorial—St  Martin  I,  Pope,  Martyr—
Wednesday, April 13:
When Martin I became pope in
649, Constantinople (today, Istanbul) was the capital
of  the  Byzantine  empire  and  the  patriarch  of
Constantinople  was  the  most  influential  Church
leader  in  the  eastern Christian  world. The  struggles
that  existed  within  the  Church  at  that  time  were
magnified by the close cooperation of emperor and
patriarch.

A teaching, strongly supported in the East, held that
Christ  had  no  human  will.  Twice  emperors  had
officially  favored  this  position,  Heraclius  by
publishing  a  formula  of  faith  and  Constans  II  by
silencing the issue of one or two wills in Christ.

Shortly  after  assuming  the  office  of  the  papacy
(which  he  did  without  first  being  confirmed  by  the
emperor),  Martin  held  a  council  at  the  Lateran  in
which the imperial documents were censured, and in
which the patriarch of Constantinople and two of his
predecessors  were  condemned.  Constans  II,  in
response,  tried  first  to  turn  bishops  and  people
against the pope.

Failing in this and in an attempt to kill the pope, the
emperor sent troops to Rome to seize Martin and to

bring  him  back  to  Constantinople.  Already  in  poor
health,  Martin  offered  no  resistance,  returned  with
the  exarch  Calliopas  and  was  then  submitted  to
various  imprisonments,  tortures  and  hardships.
Although condemned to death and with some of the
torture  imposed  already  carried  out,  Martin  was
saved  from  execution  by  the  pleas  of  a  repentant
Paul,  patriarch  of  Constantinople,  who  was  himself
gravely ill.

Martin  died  shortly  thereafter,  tortures  and  cruel
treatment having taken their toll. He is the last of the
early popes to be venerated as a martyr.

Comment:  The  real  significance  of  the  word  martyr
comes  not  from  the  dying  but  from  the  witnessing,
which the word means in its derivation. People who
are willing to give up everything, their most precious
possessions, their very lives, put a supreme value on
the  cause  or  belief  for  which  they  sacrifice.
Martyrdom,  dying  for  the  faith,  is  an  incidental
extreme to which some have had to go to manifest
their  belief  in  Christ.  A  living  faith,  a  life  that
exemplifies Christ's teaching throughout, and that in
spite  of  difficulties,  is  required  of  all  Christians.
Martin might have cut corners as a way of easing his
lot,  to    make  some  accommodations  with  the  civil
rulers.

Quote:  The  breviary  of  the  Orthodox  Church  pays
tribute to Martin: “Glorious definer of the Orthodox
Faith...sacred  chief  of  divine  dogmas,  unstained  by
error...true  reprover  of  heresy...foundation  of
bishops,  pillar  of  the  Orthodox  faith,  teacher  of
religion.... Thou  didst  adorn  the  divine  see  of  Peter,
and  since  from  this  divine  Rock,  thou  didst
immovably  defend  the  Church,  so  now  thou  art
glorified with him.”

FEAST OF THE WEEK

SMILE

Good Bedside Manners

Susie's husband had been slipping in and out of a

coma for several months.

Things looked grim, but she was by his bedside

every single day.

One day as he slipped back into consciousness, he
motioned for her to come close to him. She pulled
the chair close to the bed and leaned her ear close

to be able to hear him.

"You know" he whispered, his eyes filling with tears,

"you have been with me through all the bad times.

When I got fired, you stuck right beside me. When

my business went under, there you were. When we

lost the house, you were there. When I got shot, you

stuck with me. When my health started failing, you

were still by my side.

"And you know what?"

"What, dear?" she asked gently, smiling to herself.

"I think you're bad luck."

Readings:  Acts  5:27-32,40-41;  Psalm

30:2,4-6,11-13;  Revelation  5:11-14;  John

21:1-19

There are two places in Scripture where the curious
detail of a "charcoal fire" is mentioned.

One is in today's Gospel, where the Apostles return
from  fishing  to  find  bread  and  fish  warming  on  the
fire.

The  other  is  in  the  scene  in  the  High  Priest's
courtyard  on  Holy Thursday,  where  Peter  and  some
guards  and  slaves  warm  themselves  while  Jesus  is
being interrogated inside (see John 18:18).

At  the  first  fire,  Peter  denied  knowing  Jesus  three
times,  as  Jesus  had  predicted  (see  John  13:38;
18:15-18, 25-27).

Today's  charcoal  fire  becomes  the  scene  of  Peter's
repentance, as three times Jesus asks him to make a
profession of love. Jesus'   thrice repeated command
"feed My sheep" shows that Peter is being appointed
as the shepherd of the Lord's entire flock, the head
of His Church (see also Luke 22:32).

Jesus' question: "Do you love me more than these?"
is a pointed reminder of Peter's pledge to lay down
his  life  for  Jesus,  even  if  the  other  Apostles  might
weaken (see John 13:37; Matthew 26:33; Luke 22:33).

Jesus  then  explains  just  what  Peter's  love  and
leadership  will  require,  foretelling  Peter's  death  by
crucifixion ("you will stretch out your hands").

Before  His  own  death,  Jesus  had  warned  the
Apostles that they would be hated as He was hated,
that they would suffer as He suffered (see Matthew
10:16-19,22; John 15:18-20; 16:2).

We see the beginnings of that persecution in today's
First  Reading.  Flogged  as  Jesus  was,  the  Apostles
nonetheless  leave  "rejoicing  that  they  have  been
found worthy to suffer."

Their joy is based on their faith that God will change
their "mourning into dancing," as we sing in today's
Psalm.  By  their  sufferings,  they  know,  they  will  be
counted worthy to stand in heaven before "the Lamb
that was slain," a scene glimpsed in today's Second
Reading (see also Revelation 6:9-11).

“Yes Lord; You Know That I Love You”

The Chief Apostle,
Peter

Question

Is  it  possible  for  objects  to  be  cursed  or
attached to evil spirits? If so, what can I do
to combat this?

Full Question

I  feel  a  strong  sense  of  evil  from  certain
objects  in  our  home,  to  the  point  that  I
cannot  look  at  them  without  making  a
concentrated  effort  to  do  so.  Is  it  possible
for objects to be cursed or attached to evil
spirits? If so, what can I do to combat this?

Answer

Yes,  objects  can  be  cursed,  just  as  objects
can be blessed. I suggest that you dispose
of the objects that bother you. In his book,
Interview with an Exorcist, Fr. Jose Antonio
Fortea  writes  that  such  objects  should  be
burnt (110).

LENTEN FAST & ABSTINENCE

We fast, & abstain from meat on Ash Wed & Good Fri.

The fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

The required fast on Ash Wed and Good Fri 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

Abstinence on these days from meat does not intend the

omission of eggs or dairy products.

Age Requirements

"All Catholics who have completed their 14

th

year are

bound by the law of abstinence; all adults are bound by

the law of fast up to the beginning of their 60

th

year.

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.
