Working wonders by providing

vital life-restoring needs...

“Agencies are lifesaving and life-

restoring to those who regularly

rely on them. Families are working

through crises and are healing.

People with developmental

challenges are supported as they

experience a sense of self-worth

and fulfillment in their daily

activities. Seniors are living

independently, yet have access to

the social services and care they

need. Refugees and new

Canadians are guided toward a

stable, productive livelihood in

their newfound home. Sometimes

the results are obvious and

sometimes they’re invisible but,

always, they make a tangible

difference. Please prayerfully

consider today how you can

support ShareLife.” —Thomas

Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of

Toronto.

Today is ShareLife Sunday – March 13,

2016 Please give generously. You can

work wonders!

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

“I BELIEVE IN GOD THE FATHER ALMIGHTY, 


CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH.”

The The Fall

73. How should we understand the reality of

sin?

Sin  is  present  in  human  history. This  reality  of

sin can be understood clearly only in the light of

divine  revelation  and  above  all  in  the  light  of

Christ the Savior of all. Where sin abounded, he

made grace to abound all the more.

74. What was the fall of the angels?

This  expression  indicates  that  Satan  and  the

other  demons,  about  which  Sacred  Scripture

and  the  Tradition  of  the  Church  speak,  were

angels,  created  good  by  God.  They  were,

however,  transformed  into  evil  because  with  a

free  and  irrevocable  choice  they  rejected  God

and  his  Kingdom,  thus  giving  rise  to  the

existence  of  hell. They  try  to  associate  human

beings  with  their  revolt  against God.  However,

God  has  wrought  in  Christ  a  sure  victory  over

the Evil One.

75. What was the first human sin?

When  tempted  by  the  devil,  the  first  man  and

woman  allowed  trust  in  their  Creator  to  die  in

their  hearts.  In  their  disobedience  they  wished

to become “like God” but without God and not

in  accordance  with  God  (Genesis  3:5).  Thus,

Adam and Eve immediately lost for themselves

and for all their descendants the original grace

of holiness and justice.

76. What is original sin?

Original sin, in which all human beings are born,

is  the  state  of  deprivation  of  original  holiness

and  justice.  It  is  a  sin  “contracted”  by  us  not

“committed”;  it  is  a  state  of  birth  and  not  a

personal act. Because of the original unity of all

human  beings,  it  is  transmitted  to  the

descendants of Adam “not by imitation, but by

propagation”.  This  transmission  remains  a

mystery which we cannot fully understand.

77. What other consequences derive from

original sin?

In  consequence  of  original  sin  human  nature,

without  being  totally  corrupted,  is  wounded  in

its natural powers. It is subject to ignorance, to

suffering,  and  to  the  dominion  of  death  and  is

inclined  toward  sin.  This  inclination  is  called

concupiscence.

78. After the first sin, what did God do?

After the first sin the world was inundated with

sin but God did not abandon man to the power

of  death.  Rather,  he  foretold  in  a  mysterious

way  in  the  “Protoevangelium”  (Genesis  3:15)

that  evil  would  be  conquered  and  that  man

would be lifted up from his fall. This was the first

proclamation  of  the  Messiah  and  Redeemer.

Therefore, the fall would be called in the future

a  “happy  fault”  because  it  “gained  for  us  so

great a Redeemer” (Liturgy of the Easter Vigil).

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.

SOLEMNITY:  St  Joseph,  Husband  of  the  BVM
Saturday,  March  19—
The  Bible  pays  Joseph  the
highest  compliment:  he  was  a  “just”  man.  The
quality meant a lot more than faithfulness in paying
debts.

When the Bible speaks of God “justifying” someone,
it  means  that God,  the  all-holy  or  “righteous” One,
so  transforms  a  person  that  the  individual  shares
somehow  in  God’s  own  holiness,  and  hence  it  is
really  “right”  for  God  to  love  him  or  her.  In  other
words,  God  is  not  playing  games,  acting  as  if  we
were lovable when we are not.

By saying Joseph was “just,” the Bible means that he
was  one  who  was  completely  open  to  all  that God
wanted  to  do  for  him.  He  became  holy  by  opening
himself totally to God.

The rest we can easily surmise. Think of the kind of
love  with  which  he  wooed  and  won  Mary,  and  the
depth of the love they shared during their marriage.

It is no contradiction of Joseph’s manly holiness that
he decided to divorce Mary when she was found to
be with child. The important words of the Bible are
that he planned to do this “quietly” because he was
“a  righteous  man,  yet  unwilling  to  expose  her  to
shame” (Matthew 1:19).

The  just  man  was  simply,  joyfully,  wholeheartedly
obedient to God—in marrying Mary, in naming Jesus,
in  shepherding  the  precious  pair  to  Egypt,  in
bringing  them  to  Nazareth,  in  the  undetermined
number of years of quiet faith and courage.

Comment: The Bible tells us nothing of Joseph in the
years  after  the  return  to  Nazareth  except  the
incident  of  finding  Jesus  in  the  Temple  (see  Luke
2:41–51).  Perhaps  this  can  be  taken  to  mean  that
God  wants  us  to  realize  that  the  holiest  family  was
like every other family, that the circumstances of life
for the holiest family were like those of every family,
so  that  when  Jesus’  mysterious  nature  began  to
appear,  people  couldn’t  believe  that  he  came  from
such  humble  beginnings:  “Is  he  not  the  carpenter’s

son?  Is  not  his  mother  named  Mary...?”  (Matthew
13:55a). It was almost as indignant as “Can anything
good come from Nazareth?” (John 1:46b).

Quote: “He was chosen by the eternal Father as the
trustworthy  guardian  and  protector  of  his  greatest
treasures, namely, his divine Son and Mary, Joseph’s
wife.  He  carried  out  this  vocation  with  complete
fidelity  until  at  last  God  called  him,  saying:  ‘Good
and  faithful  servant,  enter  into  the  joy  of  your
Lord’” (St. Bernardine of Siena).

WORK & JOBS

An employee is getting to know her new co-workers

when the topic of her last job comes up.

“Why did you leave that job?” asked one co-worker. “It

was something my boss said,” she replied.
“What did he say?” the co-worker quizzed.

“You’re fired.”

Manager: “Do you know anything about this fax-

machine?”

Staff: “A little. What’s wrong sir?”

Manager: “Well, I sent a fax, and the recipient called back

to say all she received was a blank page. I tried it again,

and the same thing happened.”

Staff: “How did you load the sheet?”

Manager: “I didn’t want anyone else to read it by

accident, so I folded it so only the recipient would open it

and read it.”

A man went to a job interview. Interviewer, “What is the

difference between “COMPLETE” and “FINISH”.

The man replied, “If you marry the right person your life

is “complete”, but if you marry the wrong person your life

is “finished”.

Isaiah  43:16-21;  Psalms  126:1-6;  Philippians

3:8-14; John 8:1-11

In The Liturgy this Lent has shown us the God of the
Exodus. He is a mighty and gracious God, Who out of
faithfulness to His covenant has done "great things"
for His people, as today's Psalm puts it.

But the "things of long ago," Isaiah tells us in today's
First  Reading,  are  nothing  compared  to  the
"something new" that He will do in the future.

Today's  First  Reading  and  Psalm  look  back  to  the
marvelous  deeds  of  the  Exodus.  Both  see  in  the
Exodus a pattern and prophecy of the future, when
God will restore the fortunes of His people fallen in
sin. The readings today look forward to a still greater
Exodus, when God will gather in the exiled tribes of
Israel  which  had  been  scattered  to  the  four  winds,
the ends of the earth.

The new Exodus that Israel waited and hoped for has
come in the death and resurrection of Jesus. Like the
adulterous  woman  in  today's Gospel,  all  have  been

spared by the Lord's compassion. All have heard His
words of forgiveness, His urging to repentance, to be
sinners  no  more.  Like  Paul  in  today's  Epistle, Christ
has taken possession of every one, claimed each as a
child of our heavenly Father.

In the Church, God has formed a people for Himself
to announce His praise, just as Isaiah said He would.
And  as  Isaiah  promised,  He  has  given  His  "chosen
people"  living  waters  to  drink  in  the  desert
wastelands of the world (see John 7:37-39).

But  our God  is  ever  a God  of  the  future,  not  of  the
past. We are to live with hopeful hearts, "forgetting
what  lies  behind  but  straining  forward  to  what  lies
ahead,"  as  Paul  tells  us.  His  salvation,  Paul  says,  is
power  in  the  present,  "the  power  of  His
resurrection."

We  are  to  live  awaiting  a  still  greater  and  final
Exodus,  pursuing  "the  goal,  the  prize  of  God's
upward  calling,"  striving  in  faith  to  attain  the  last
new  thing  God  promises  -  "the  resurrection

of  the

dead."

“Neither Do I Condemn You. …From

Now On Do Not Sin Again.”

Jesus

Question

A What if I can't believe God will forgive all the

awful things I've done?

Full Question

I  have  gone  to  confession  and  prayed  to  God,

but  I  don't  believe  I  could  ever  be  forgiven

because of the abominations I've done. I feel I'm

unforgivable.  How  can  I  escape  this  inner  fear

and self-loathing?

Answer

Ask the Lord to make up for your lack. Certainly,

nothing—absolutely  nothing—could  be  worse

than  putting  Jesus  to  death.  Yet  he  willingly

endured this to show us how much he loves us,

even  with  our  sins.  His  love  is  stronger  and

greater  than  the  worst  evil.  So  you  are  home

free. Accept it! Reality is stronger than feelings.

DOCUMENTARY AIRING: LIBERATING A

CONTINENT: JOHN PAUL II AND THE FALL OF

COMMUNISM

Sunday, March 13 at 9 p.m.

Tuesday, March 15 at 11:30 p.m. Friday, March 25 at 8

p.m.

Throughout March, a new documentary looking at John

Paul II's impact on communism's fall will be airing on

WNED (PBS Buffalo) and will be available to viewers in the

Archdiocese of Toronto. Narrated by Jim Caviezel and with

original music by composer Joe Kraemer of Mission

Impossible fame, this film is the most in-depth effort to

date to capture John Paul II's spiritual and moral

revolution, which led to the fall of communism in 1989.

For local broadcast details, please visit jp2film.com/
broadcasts. These screenings will run as part of PBS

pledge nights, allowing viewers who call in to obtain an

advance DVD of the film, set to be released later in 2016.
