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”

85. Why did the Son of God become man?

For  us  men  and  for  our  salvation,  the  Son  of  God
became incarnate in the womb of the Virgin Mary by
the power of the Holy Spirit. He did so to reconcile us
sinners  with God,  to  have  us  learn  of God’s  infinite
love,  to  be  our  model  of  holiness  and  to  make  us
“partakers of the divine nature” (2 Peter 1:4).

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)

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.

THE VALUE OF LIFE

Written by: Diego Ardon

We aspire to be great, flying over heights,

Walking through the tunnel of life, looking for the light

Sometimes we get tempted, thinking life’s not fair

This is just Satan letting us fall into despair

We look somewhere for God, thinking “where is he

now?” Trying to escape darkness someway or somehow

Suicide isn’t the answer, stop running from the light

God is with you always, so don’t lose the fight

He loves you as much as everyone

You are his everything, his entire world, moon and sun

We are all God’s children so don’t close the door

When I say everyone I mean including the old, sick, and

poor; ‘Everyone’ includes the unborn, young babies in

the womb; So you can’t decide whether there should be

an early tomb; You are wrong if you think that life begins

at birth; Because the truth is it begins at conception,
that’s when life has its worth; “Love one another as I

have loved you” is what Jesus said, so treat everyone the

same; Our life or who we are isn’t determined by our

wealth status or fame; The value of our lives are

priceless, they’re sacred; So keep the 5th commandment

holy and stop all sorts of hatred.

“This workshop has helped me to reflect on my priestly call,
a privileged service in God’s Kingdom; and has reenergized
me and my brother priests to be better in our service. Given
our  rural  and  remote  location,  serving  people  who  live  in
poverty  can  be  draining  at  times.  This  workshop  and
dialogue has made a renewing impact for many of us. It has
given us hope and strength to renew our enthusiasm and we
do  hope  it  continues  in  the  future. We  are  deeply  grateful
and  offer  our  prayers  of  support  to ShareLife  who  made  it
financially possible for us to come together.”

Easter Sunday                      

   March 27, 2016 

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________________________________________________ 

150 Gateway Blvd., Toronto, ON., M3C 3E2            

                                                                               !5

An explanation of the liturgy of the Easter Masses.

Easter  is  the  "Feast  of  feasts",  the  "Solemnity  of
solemnities"  and  the  "Great  Sunday".  Festive
solemnity should mark all the Masses celebrated on
Easter  Sunday,  the  supreme  day  of  the  Christian
year.  The  Easter  Masses,  in  addition  to  the  Vigil,
should  be  solemnly  sung. There  are  few  exceptions
to  the  usual  sections  (Liturgy  of  the  Word  and  the
Eucharist) of the Mass during the Easter Octave. The
Gloria  is  sung  or  recited  each  day.  Instead  of  the
Profession  of  Faith,  the  members  of  the
congregation renew their baptismal promises.

Throughout the Easter Octave, the Easter Sequence
may be sung or said before the Gospel.

Sequence

Before  the  Gospel  is  proclaimed,  the  ancient
sequence Victimae Paschali of Easter Sunday is read
or  sung.  The  Sequence  (Sequentia)  is  the  liturgical
hymn  of  the  Mass,  which  occurs  on  four  feasts:
Easter,  Pentecost,  Corpus  Christi  and  Our  Lady  of
Sorrows.  This  sequence,  Victimae  Paschali  is
attributed to Wipo of Burgundy, who was chaplain of
the  German  Emperor  Conrad  II  during  the  11th
century.

Christians,

to the Paschal Victim Offer your thankful

praises!

A Lamb the sheep redeems:

Christ, who only is sinless,

Reconciles sinners to the Father.

Death and life have contended in that

combat stupendous:

The Prince of life, who died, reigns immortal.

Speak, Mary, declaring

What you saw, wayfaring.

"The tomb of Christ, who is living,

The glory of Jesus' resurrection;

Bright angels attesting,

The shroud and napkin resting.

Yes, my Christ my hope is arisen:

To Galilee he goes before you."

Christ indeed from death is risen, our new life

obtaining.

Have mercy, victor King, ever reigning!

Amen. Alleluia.

The Alleluia verse throughout the week is

"This is the day the Lord has made; let us

rejoice and be glad, Alleluia."

There  is  also  a  special  preface  of  Easter. And  when
the  Eucharistic  Prayer  I  is  used,  the  special  Easter
forms of "In union with the whole Church":

In  union  of  the  whole  Church  we
celebrate  that  day  (night)  when  Jesus
Christ,  our  Lord,  rose  from  the  dead  in
his human body.

and  "Father,  accept  this  offering"  (Hanc  Igitur)  is
used.

Father,  accept  this  offering  from  your
whole  family  and  from  those  born  into
the new life of water and the Holy Spirit
with all their sins forgiven. Grant us your
peace  in  this  life,  save  us  from  final
damnation,  and  count  us  among  those
you have chosen.

Finally, at the dismissal, the deacon or priest sings or
says:

Go  in  the  peace  of  Christ,  alleluia,
alleluia.  or  The  Mass  is  ended,  go  in
peace, alleluia, alleluia. or Go in peace to
love and serve the Lord, alleluia, alleluia.
Response:  Thanks  be  to  God,  alleluia,
allleluia.

THE EASTER OCTAVE

SMILE

TELEMARKETER

Listen a job is a job, we all need to find away to put bread

on the table don’t we? To make a long story short I’m a

telemarketer that’s my job and that’s what I do. It’s not

a job everyone appreciates, but it’s a job I enjoy and am

proud of.

The other day I called a house and a real nice lady

answered the phone, she was really helpful and friendly,

she was the type of lady that helps a telemarketer get

through a long day. After some pleasantries I asked if Mr.

Smith was in, “I’m sorry”, she answered “I’m afraid he

doesn’t live here anymore.”

Now that was a real disappointment being that she was a

nice lady and all, but I took it all in a stride, “I’m sorry to

hear that ma’am. Do you happen to have his new

number.” “Sure thing!” The woman cheerfully

replied, listing off his new number.

I hung up the phone and quickly called the new number

and was surprised to hear a recording. “Thank you for

calling Green Acres Cemetery…”

Readings:  Acts  10:34,  37-43;  Psalm  118:1-2,

16-17, 22-23; Colossians 3:1-4; John 20:1-9

Jesus  is  nowhere  visible. Yet  today's Gospel  tells  us
that Peter and John "saw and believed.”

What did they see? Burial shrouds lying on the floor
of an empty tomb. Maybe that convinced them that
He  hadn't  been  carted  off  by  grave  robbers,  who
usually stole the expensive burial linens and left the
corpses behind.

But notice the repetition of the word "tomb" - seven
times in nine verses. They saw the empty tomb and
they believed what He had promised: that God would
raise Him on the third day.

Chosen  to  be  His  "witnesses,"  today's  First  Reading
tells  us,  the  Apostles  were  "commissioned...to
preach...and testify" to all that they had seen - from
His anointing with the Holy Spirit at the Jordan to the
empty tomb.

More  than  their  own  experience,  they  were
instructed  in  the  mysteries  of  the  divine  economy,
God's  saving  plan  -  to  know  how  "all  the  prophets
bear witness" to Him (see Luke 24:27,44).

Now  they  could  "understand  the  Scripture,"  could
teach us what He had told them - that He was "the
Stone  which  the  builders  rejected,"  that  today's
Psalm  prophesies  His  Resurrection  and  exaltation
(see Luke 20:17; Matthew 21:42; Acts 4:11).

We are the children of the apostolic witnesses. That
is why we still gather early in the morning on the first
day  of  every  week  to  celebrate  this  feast  of  the
empty  tomb,  give  thanks  for  "Christ  our  life,"  as
today's Epistle calls Him.

Baptized into His death and Resurrection, we live the
heavenly  life  of  the  risen  Christ,  our  lives  "hidden
with Christ in God." We are now His witnesses, too.
But  we  testify  to  things  we  cannot  see  but  only
believe; we seek in earthly things what is above.

We live in memory of the Apostles' witness, like them
eating and drinking with the risen Lord at the altar.
And  we  wait  in  hope  for  what  the Apostles  told  us
would come - the day when we too "will appear with
Him in glory.”

-Scott Hahn Reflects on Easter Sunday

“I Am Ascending To My Father And Your Father, My

God And Your God.”

Question

I  am Catholic. A  Protestant  told  me  that  the  people
are  the  church,  but  I’m  pretty  sure  that  is  not  true.
Can you help me? What is the Church?

Answer

Your friend was correct as far as he went. The Second
Vatican  Council,  in  Lumen  Gentium,  stated  the
Church is the people of God. Protestants see this as
pretty much it. They understand church as a name for
a structure-less body of people who follow Christ and
believe  in  his  divinity  as  the  second  Person  of  the
Holy Trinity, revealed in the Bible alone.

Catholics, on the other hand, understand the Church
also in terms of a hierarchical structure, with definite
authority  given  to  it  by Jesus  in  the  person  of  Peter
and  therefore  to  his  successors. We  see  in Scripture
much evidence that Jesus gave personal attention to
the apostles, preparing them to minister after he was
no  longer  with  them.  “Anyone  who  listens  to  you
listens to me; anyone who rejects you rejects me, and
those who reject me reject the one who sent me” (Lk
10:16). There was no reason for him to prepare them
for only their lifetime. The early Church Fathers verify
this.  The  early  Church  does  not  fall  into  the
Protestant  vision  of  a  structure-less,  sacrament-less
body of believers. It was hierarchically structured and
sacramental.  The  canon  of  the  New  Testament,  on
which Protestants base all their faith, is the product
of this Church.

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.

"All Catholics who have completed their 14

th

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

the law of fast up to the beginning of their 60

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.
