EUTHANASIA/ASSISTED

SUICIDE

It's Time To Act!

On April 14, 2016, the federal government

introduced Bill C-14 - legislation that, if passed,

will amend the criminal code to make

euthanasia/assisted suicide legal in Canada.

Thousands of Canadians have contacted their

elected officials, respectfully expressing their

concerns.

We still need your help. Visit

CanadiansforConscience.ca to urge elected

representatives to protect health care workers

and institutions from having to provide or refer

for euthanasia/assisted suicide. We are also

asking Members of Parliament to expand

palliative care & support for the vulnerable.

Thank you for your ongoing support!

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”

105. Why did Jesus receive from John the “baptism

of repentance for the forgiveness of sins”?

To  inaugurate  his  public  life  and  to  anticipate  the
“Baptism”  of  his  death,  he  who  was  without  sin
accepted  to  be  numbered  among  sinners.  He  was
“the  Lamb  of  God  who  takes  away  the  sin  of  the
world” (John 1:29). The Father proclaimed him to be
“his  beloved  Son”  (Matthew  3:17)  and  the  Spirit
descended  upon  him.  The  baptism  of  Jesus  is  a
prefiguring of our baptism.

106. What do we learn from the temptations of

Jesus in the desert?

The  temptations  of  Jesus  in  the  desert  recapitulate
the  temptation  of  Adam  in  Paradise  and  the
temptations  of  Israel  in  the  desert.  Satan  tempts
Jesus in regard to his obedience to the mission given
him by the Father. Christ, the new Adam, resists and
his victory proclaims that of his passion which is the
supreme  obedience  of  his  filial  love.  The  Church
unites herself to this mystery in a special way in the
liturgical season of Lent.

107. Who is invited to come into the Kingdom of

God proclaimed and brought about by Jesus?

All are invited by Jesus to enter the Kingdom of God.
Even the worst of sinners is called to convert and to
accept  the  boundless  mercy  of  the  Father.  Already
here  on  earth,  the  Kingdom  belongs  to  those  who
accept it with a humble heart. To them the mysteries
of the Kingdom are revealed.

108. Why did Jesus manifest the Kingdom by

means of signs and miracles?

Jesus accompanied his words with signs and miracles
to  bear  witness  to  the  fact  that  the  Kingdom  is
present  in  him,  the  Messiah.  Although  he  healed
some  people,  he  did  not  come  to  abolish  all  evils
here below but rather to free us especially from the
slavery of sin. The driving out of demons proclaimed
that his cross would be victorious over “the ruler of
this world” (John 12:31).

109. In the Kingdom, what authority did Jesus

bestow upon his Apostles?

Jesus  chose  the  twelve,  the  future  witnesses  of  his
Resurrection, and made them sharers of his mission
and  of  his  authority  to  teach,  to  absolve  from  sins,
and  to  build  up  and  govern  the  Church.  In  this
college,  Peter  received  “the  keys  of  the
Kingdom”  (Matthew  16:19)  and  assumed  the  first
place  with  the  mission  to  keep  the  faith  in  its
integrity and to strengthen his brothers.

110. What is the meaning of the Transfiguration?

Above all the Transfiguration shows forth the Trinity:
“the  Father  in  the  voice,  the Son  in  the  man Jesus,
the  Spirit  in  the  shining  cloud”  (Saint  Thomas
Aquinas). Speaking with Moses and Elijah about his
“departure”  (Luke  9:31), Jesus  reveals  that  his  glory
comes  by  way  of  the  cross  and  he  anticipates  his
resurrection  and  his  glorious  coming  “which  will
change  our  lowly  body  to  be  like  his  glorious
body” (Philippians 3:21).

“You  were  transfigured  on  the  mountain
and  your  disciples,  as  much  as  they  were
capable of it, beheld your glory, O Christ our
God,  so  that  when  they  should  see  you
crucified  they  would  understand  that  your
passion was voluntary, and proclaim to the
world  that  you  truly  are  the  splendour  of
the Father.”

(Byzantine Liturgy)

111. How did the messianic entrance into

Jerusalem come about?

At  the  established  time  Jesus  chose  to  go  up  to
Jerusalem to suffer his passion and death, and to rise
from the dead. As the Messiah King who shows forth
the coming of the Kingdom, he entered into his city
mounted on a donkey. He was acclaimed by the little
children  whose  shout  of  joyful  praise  is  taken  up  in
the Sanctus of the Eucharistic liturgy: “Blessed is He
Who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna (save
us!)” (Matthew 21:9). The liturgy of the Church opens
Holy Week by celebrating this entry into Jerusalem.

“Jesus Christ suffered under Pontius Pilate
was crucified, died, and was buried.”

112. What is the importance of the Paschal

Mystery of Jesus?

The  Paschal  Mystery  of  Jesus,  which  comprises  his
passion, death, resurrection, and glorification, stands
at  the  center  of  the  Christian  faith  because  God's
saving  plan  was  accomplished  once  for  all  by  the
redemptive death of his Son Jesus Christ.

Quotes of Winston Churchill

“He is a modest man who has a great deal to be

modest about”

The marks of a politician “The ability to foretell

what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next
month, next year, and to have the ability afterwards

to explain why it didn’t happen”

“it is better to be irresponsible and right than

responsible and wrong”

“A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and

won’t change the subject”

Lady Astor (first woman MP in the House of

Commons): "Mr Churchill, if you were my husband,

I'd put poison in your tea."

Winston (getting unsteadily to his feet): "Madam, if

I were your husband ... I'd drink it."

                                                                               !5

Optional  Memorial—St  Mark,  Evangelist—Monday,
April  25:  
Most  of  what  we  know  about  Mark  comes
directly  from  the  New  Testament.  He  is  usually
identified with the Mark of Acts 12:12. (When Peter
escaped from prison, he went to the home of Mark's
mother.)

Paul  and  Barnabas  took  him  along  on  the  first
missionary  journey,  but  for  some  reason  Mark
returned  alone

to  Jerusalem.  It

is  evident,  from

Paul's refusal to

l e t

M a r k

accompany him

on  the  second

journey  despite

B a r n a b a s ' s

insistence,  that

M a r k

h a d

d i s p l e a s e d

Paul.  Because

Paul  later  asks

Mark to visit him

in  prison,  we

may assume the trouble did not last long.

The oldest and the shortest of the four Gospels, the
Gospel  of  Mark  emphasizes  Jesus'  rejection  by
humanity  while  being  God's  triumphant  envoy.
Probably written for Gentile converts in Rome—after
the death of Peter and Paul sometime between A.D.
60  and  70—Mark's  Gospel  is  the  gradual
manifestation of a "scandal": a crucified Messiah.

Evidently  a  friend  of  Mark  (Peter  called  him  "my
son"), Peter is only one of the Gospel sources, others
being the Church in Jerusalem (Jewish roots) and the
Church at Antioch (largely Gentile).

Like one other Gospel writer, Luke, Mark was not one
of the 12 apostles. We cannot be certain whether he
knew  Jesus  personally.  Some  scholars  feel  that  the
evangelist is speaking of himself when describing the
arrest  of  Jesus  in  Gethsemane:  "Now  a  young  man
followed him wearing nothing but a linen cloth about
his  body.  They  seized  him,  but  he  left  the  cloth
behind and ran off naked" (Mark 14:51-52).

Others hold Mark to be the first bishop of Alexandria,
Egypt.  Venice,  famous  for  the  Piazza  San  Marco,
claims  Mark  as  its  patron  saint;  the  large  basilica
there is believed to contain his remains.

A winged lion is Mark's symbol. The lion derives from
Mark's description of John the Baptist as a "voice of
one crying out in the desert" (Mark 1:3), which artists

compared to a roaring lion. The wings come from the
application  of  Ezekiel's  vision  of  four  winged
creatures (Ezekiel, chapter one) to the evangelists.
Comment:  Mark  fulfilled  in  his  life  what  every
Christian  is  called  to  do:  proclaim  to  all  people  the
Good  News  that  is  the  source  of  salvation.  In
particular,  Mark's  way  was  by  writing.  Others  may
proclaim the Good News by music, drama, poetry or
by teaching children around a family table.

Quote:  There  is  very  little  in  Mark  that  is  not  in  the
other Gospels—only four passages. One is: “...This is
how it is with the kingdom of God; it is as if a man
were to scatter seed on the land and would sleep and
rise  night  and  day  and  the  seed  would  sprout  and
grow, he knows not how. Of its own accord the land
yields fruit, first the blade, then the ear, then the full
grain in the ear. And when the grain is ripe, he wields
the  sickle  at  once,  for  the  harvest  has  come”  (Mark
4:26-29).

                                                                               !6

Readings: Acts 14:21-27; Psalm 145:8-13;

Revelation 21:1-5; John 13:31-35
By God's  goodness  and  compassion,  the  doors

of  His  kingdom  have  been  opened  to  all  who

have faith, Jew or Gentile. That's the good news

Paul  and  Barnabas  proclaim  in  today's  First

Reading. With  the  coming  of  the  Church  -  the

new  Jerusalem  John  sees  in  today's  Second

Reading - God is "making all things new.”
In His Church, the "old order" of death is passing

away and God for all time is making His dwelling

with the human race, so that all peoples "will be

His people and God Himself will always be with

them."  In  this  the  promises  made  through  His

prophets  are  accomplished  (see  Ezekiel  37:27;

Isaiah 25:8; 35:10).
The Church is "the kingdom for all ages" that we

sing of in today's Psalm. That's why we see the

Apostles,  under  the  guidance  of  the  Spirit,

ordaining "presbyters" or priests (see 1 Timothy

4:14; Titus 1:5).
Anointed  priests  and  bishops  will  be  the

Apostles' successors, ensuring that the Church's

" d o m i n i o n  e n d u r e s  t h r o u g h  a l l

generations"  (see  Philippians  1:1,  note  that  the

New American  Bible  translates  Episcopois,  the

Greek word for bishops, as "overseers").
Until the end of time, the Church will declare to

the world God's mighty deeds, blessing His holy

name  and  giving  Him  thanks,  singing  of  the

glories of His kingdom.
In His Church, we know ourselves as His "faithful

ones," as those Jesus calls "My little children" in

today's Gospel. We live by the new law, the "new

commandment" that He gave in His final hours.

The love He commands of us is no human love

but  a  supernatural  love. We  love  each  other  as

Jesus loved us in suffering and dying for us. We

love in imitation of His love.
This  kind  of  love  is  only  made  possible  by  the

Spirit  poured  into  our  hearts  at  Baptism  (see

Romans 5:5), renewed in the sacrifice His priests

offer  in  every  Mass.  By  our  love  we  glorify  the

Father.  And  by  our  love  all  peoples  will  know

that we are His people, that He is our God.

“Just As I Have Loved You, You Also Should Love One Another”

Jesus

Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or 

boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its 

own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not 

rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It 

bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, 

endures all things.

Love never ends.

YOUTH MINISTRY

Full Question

John  Henry  Cardinal  Newman  once
said, "To be deep in history is to cease
to  be  Protestant."  If  that  is  the  case,
why  are  there  so  many  Protestant
church  historians,  even  patristics
scholars,  who  never  join  the  Catholic
Church?

Answer

Newman’s maxim is not intended to be
a  "rule"  that  those  Protestants  versed
in  Church  history  "must"  enter  the
Catholic  Church.  It  is  a  general
observation that Church history argues
against  Protestantism  and  that  those
Protestants  who  study  history  deeply
many  times  realize  that  the  Catholic
Church is the true Church.

Ultimately,  belief  in  the  truth  of
Catholicism  is  a  gift  of  faith  given  by
God that must be accepted and acted
upon  by  the  recipient  in  order  for  the
recipient  to  become  Catholic.  With
Protestant  historians,  it  may  be  that
some,  for  whatever  reason  of  divine
Providence, were not given that gift; or
that those who were given that gift did
not  accept  it  or  act  upon  it  for  some
reason.  We  must  commend  such
people to God’s mercy, trusting that if
these individuals follow him to the best
of their ability according to the light of
truth that they have, it may be possible
for  them  to  achieve  salvation  (cf.
Lumen Gentium, 16).

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.
