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”

86. What does the word “Incarnation” mean?

The Church calls the mystery of the wonderful union
of  the  divine  and  human  natures  in  the  one  divine
Person of the Word the “Incarnation”. To bring about
our salvation the Son of God was made “flesh” (John
1:14) and became truly man. Faith in the Incarnation
is a distinctive sign of the Christian faith.

87. In what way is Jesus Christ true God and true

man?

Jesus  is  inseparably  true  God  and  true  man  in  the
unity of his divine Person. As the Son of God, who is
“begotten,  not  made,  consubstantial  with  the
Father,” he was made true man, our brother, without
ceasing to be God, our Lord.

88. What does the Council of Chalcedon (in the

year 451) teach in this regard?

The Council of Chalcedon teaches us to confess “one
and  the  same Son,  our  Lord Jesus Christ,  perfect  in
his  humanity,  true God  and  true  man,  composed  of
rational  soul  and  body,  consubstantial  with  the
Father by his divinity, and consubstantial with us by
his  humanity,  ‘like  us  in  all  things  but  sin’  (Hebrews
4:15), begotten from the Father before all ages as to
his divinity, and in these last days, for us and for our
salvation,  born  of  Mary,  the  Virgin  and  Mother  of
God, as to his humanity.”

89. How does the Church set forth the Mystery of

the Incarnation?

The  Church  confesses  that  Jesus  Christ  is  true  God
and true man, with two natures, a divine nature and
a  human  nature,  not  confused  with  each  other  but
united  in  the  Person  of  the Word. Therefore,  in  the
humanity  of  Jesus  all  things  -  his  miracles,  his
suffering,  and  his  death  -  must  be  attributed  to  his
divine  Person  which  acts  by  means  of  his  assumed
human nature.

“O Only-begotten Son  and Word  of God  you
who  are  immortal,  you  who  deigned  for  our

salvation  to  become  incarnate  of  the  holy
Mother  of God  and  ever Virgin  Mary  (...) You
who are one of the Holy Trinity, glorified with
the  Father  and  the  Holy  Spirit,  save
us!”

(Byzantine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom)

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.

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.

Working wonders in our community...

Terry  obtained  his  Master’s  Degree  in  music  and
philosophy  earlier  in  life  and  was  successful  in
careers in spirituality with the Carmelites as well as
in  the  hospitality  industry.  While  working,  he
became  addicted  to  alcohol.  Recognizing  the
seriousness of his problem and in order to return to
work successfully, Terry would need to be involved in
a  long  term  recovery  program.  He  chose  the
spiritually  enriched  program  St  Michael’s  Homes
offered  and  as  a  result, Terry  became  focused  and
deeply connected with the staff at St Michael’s and
was able to continue on the right path.

He  looks  forward  to  the  day  soon  when  he  can
confidently leave and be successful once again in the
hospitality  industry,  and  an  inspiration  to  those
around him.

ShareLife  funded  agencies  like St.  Michael’s  homes
helps many men suffering from substance abuse get
their  lives  back  on  track  through  life-changing
counselling and extensive support.

Solemnity—The Annunciation of the Lord—Monday
April  4:  
The  feast  of  the  Annunciation,  now
recognized as a solemnity, was first celebrated in the
fourth  or  fifth  century.  Its  central  focus  is  the
Incarnation:  God  has  become  one  of  us.  From  all
eternity God had decided that the Second Person of
the  Blessed Trinity  should  become  human.  Now,  as
Luke  1:26-38  tells  us,  the  decision  is  being  realized.
The  God-Man  embraces  all  humanity,  indeed  all
creation, to bring it to God in one great act of love.
Because human beings have rejected God, Jesus will
accept a life of suffering and an agonizing death: “No
one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life
for one’s friends” (John 15:13).

Mary  has  an  important  role  to  play  in  God’s  plan.
From all eternity God destined her to be the mother
of  Jesus  and  closely  related  to  him  in  the  creation
and  redemption  of  the  world.  We  could  say  that
God’s decrees of creation and redemption are joined
in  the  decree  of  Incarnation.  Because  Mary  is God’s
instrument in the Incarnation, she has a role to play
with  Jesus  in  creation  and  redemption.  It  is  a  God-
given  role.  It  is God’s  grace  from  beginning  to  end.
Mary  becomes  the  eminent  figure  she  is  only  by
God’s grace. She is the empty space where God could
act. Everything she is she owes to the Trinity.
She  is  the  virgin-mother  who  fulfills  Isaiah  7:14  in  a
way  that  Isaiah  could  not  have  imagined.  She  is
united  with  her  son  in  carrying  out  the  will  of  God
(Psalm 40:8-9; Hebrews 10:7-9; Luke 1:38).
Together with Jesus, the privileged and graced Mary
is  the  link  between  heaven  and  earth.  She  is  the
human  being  who  best,  after Jesus,  exemplifies  the
possibilities  of  human  existence.  She  received  into
her lowliness the infinite love of God. She shows how
an  ordinary  human  being  can  reflect  God  in  the
ordinary circumstances of life. She exemplifies what
the  Church  and  every  member  of  the  Church  is
meant to become. She is the ultimate product of the
creative  and  redemptive  power  of  God.  She
manifests  what  the  Incarnation  is  meant  to
accomplish for all of us.
Comment: Sometimes spiritual writers are accused of
putting Mary on a pedestal and thereby discouraging

ordinary humans from imitating her. Perhaps such an
observation  is  misguided.  God  did  put  Mary  on  a
pedestal and has put all human beings on a pedestal.
We have scarcely begun to realize the magnificence
of  divine  grace,  the  wonder  of  God’s  freely  given
love. The  marvel  of  Mary—even  in  the  midst  of  her
very ordinary life—is God’s shout to us to wake up to
the  marvelous  creatures  that  we  all  are  by  divine
design.

Quote:  “Enriched  from  the  first  instant  of  her
conception with the splendour of an entirely unique
holiness,  the  virgin  of  Nazareth  is  hailed  by  the
heralding angel, by divine command, as ‘full of grace’
(cf.  Luke  1:28).  To  the  heavenly  messenger  she
replies: ‘Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done
to  me  according  to  thy  word’  (Luke  1:38). Thus  the
daughter of Adam, Mary, consenting to the word of
God,  became  the  Mother  of  Jesus.  Committing
herself  wholeheartedly  and  impeded  by  no  sin  to
God’s  saving  will,  she  devoted  herself  totally,  as  a
handmaid of the Lord, to the person and work of her
Son,  under  and  with  him,  serving  the  mystery  of
redemption, by the grace of Almighty God” (Vatican
II, Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, 56).

Readings:  Acts  5:12-16;  Psalm  118:2-4,13-15,

22-24; Revelation 1:9-13,17-19; John 20:19-31

The prophet Daniel in a vision saw "One like the Son
of  Man"  receive  everlasting  kingship  (see  Daniel
7:9-14).  John  is  taken  to  heaven  in  today's  Second
Reading where He sees Daniel's prophecy fulfilled in
Jesus, who appears as "One like a Son of Man.”

Jesus is clad in the robe of a High Priest (see Exodus
28:4; Wisdom 18:24) and wearing the gold sash of a
King  (see  1  Maccabees  10:89).  He  has  been  exalted
by the right hand of the Lord, as we sing in today's
Psalm.

His  risen  body,  which  the Apostles  touch  in  today's
Gospel,  has  been  made  a  life-giving  Spirit  (see  1
Corinthians 15:45).

As  the  Father  anointed  Him  with  the  Spirit  and
power (see Acts 10:38), Jesus pours out that Spirit on
the  Apostles,  sending  them  into  the  world  "as  the
Father has sent Me."

Jesus "breathes" the Spirit of His divine life into the
Apostles - as God blew the "breath of life" into Adam

(see Genesis 2:7), as Elijah's prayer returned "the life
breath" to the dead child (see 1 Kings 17:21-23), and
as  the  Spirit  breathed  new  life  into  the  slain  in  the
valley of bones (see Ezekiel 37:9-10).

His creative breath unites the Apostles - His Church -
to His body, and empowers them to breathe His life
into a dying world, to make it a new creation.

In  today's  Gospel  and  First  Reading,  we  see  the
Apostles fulfilling this mission, with powers only God
possesses  -  the  power  to  forgive  sins  and  to  work
"signs and wonders," a biblical expression only used
to describe the mighty works of God (see Exodus 7:3;
11:10; Acts 7:36).

Thomas and the others saw "many other signs" after
Jesus was raised from the dead. They saw and they
believed.

They have been given His life, which continues in the
Church's Word and sacraments, so that we who have
not seen might inherit His blessings, and "have life in
His name."

Question

Is the story of the good thief in Luke 23:39–
43 proof that baptism isn't necessary?

Answer

First,  it  isn’t  clear  that  baptism  had  yet
been mandated by Jesus before he met the
thief.  If  it  had  been,  we  do  not  know  for
certain  that  the  thief  hadn’t  already  been
baptized.  In  any  case,  the  thief  clearly
underwent  a  conversion  at  some  point
during his crucifixion, and it seems evident
that he would have desired baptism before
his  death  had  he  known  of  its  necessity.
That  would  have  been  sufficient,  because
the Church recognizes that, in such a case,
the  desire  for  baptism  brings  about  the
fruits of baptism (CCC 1258).

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.
