Working wonders for people in

our homes and parishes...

In 2012, Nadia was brought to Street

Haven’s emergency shelter by the

police. She was an immigrant from

India and had been locked in a

garage by her husband and mother-

in-law for two years, rarely able to

visit her two children. Upon her

arrival at Street Haven, Nadia

thrived. She slowly built trust with

the counsellors, participated in

household responsibilities, and loved

looking after the gardens. Her

counsellor set Nadia up with a

lawyer and after a year of legal

consultations, she received custody

of her two children. Street haven

helped them find housing and Nadia

and her children now live in a

beautiful, safe home where they

have started a new chapter in their

lives.

Today is ShareLife Sunday

Thank you for your generosity.

You can work wonders!

CATECHISM OF THE  

CATHOLIC CHURCH 

PART ONE—THE PROFESSION OF FAITH 

“I BELIEVE IN THE HOLY CATHOLIC CHURCH”

147. What does the word Church mean?

The  word  Church  refers  to  the  people  whom  God
calls  and  gathers  together  from  every  part  of  the
earth. They form the assembly of those who through
faith  and  Baptism  have  become  children  of  God,
members of Christ, and temples of the Holy Spirit.

150. What is the mission of the Church?

The  mission  of  the  Church  is  to  proclaim  and
establish the Kingdom of God begun by Jesus Christ
among all peoples. The Church constitutes on earth
the seed and beginning of this salvific Kingdom.

151. In what way is the Church a mystery?

The Church is a mystery in as much as in her visible
reality  there  is  present  and  active  a  divine  spiritual
reality which can only be seen with the eyes of faith.

152. What does it mean to say that the Church is

the universal sacrament of salvation?

This means that she is the sign and instrument both
of  the  reconciliation  and  communion  of  all  of
humanity  with  God  and  of  the  unity  of  the  entire
human race.

154. What are the characteristics of the people of

God?

One becomes a member of this people through faith
in Christ  and  Baptism. This  people  has  for  its  origin
God  the  Father;  for  its  head  Jesus  Christ;  for  its
hallmark the dignity and freedom of the sons of God;
for  its  law  the  new  commandment  of  love;  for  its
mission to be the salt of the earth and the light of the
world;  and  for  its  destiny  the  Kingdom  of  God,
already begun on earth.

155. In what way does the people of God share in

the three functions of Christ as Priest, Prophet and

King?

The  people  of  God  participate  in  Christ's  priestly
office insofar as the baptized are consecrated by the
Holy Spirit to offer spiritual sacrifices. They share in
Christ’s  prophetic  office  when  with  a  supernatural
sense  of  faith  they  adhere  unfailingly  to  that  faith
and  deepen  their  understanding  and  witness  to  it.
The people of God share in his kingly office by means
of service, imitating Jesus Christ who as King of the

universe  made  himself  the  servant  of  all,  especially
the poor and the suffering.

156. In what way is the Church the body of Christ?

The risen Christ unites his faithful people to himself
in an intimate way by means of the Holy Spirit. In this
way, those who believe in Christ, in as much as they
are  close  to  him  especially  in  the  Eucharist,  are
united among themselves in charity. They form one
body, the Church, whose unity is experienced in the
diversity of its members and its functions.

157. Who is the Head of this body?

C h r i s t  “ i s  t h e  H e a d  o f  t h e  b o d y ,  t h e
Church” (Colossians 1:18). The Church lives from him,
in  him  and  for  him. Christ  and  the Church  make  up
the  “whole  Christ”  (St  Augustine);  “Head  and
members  form,  as  it  were,  one  and  the  same
mystical person” (St Aquinas).
158. Why is the Church called the “Bride of Christ”?
She  is  called  the  “Bride  of Christ”  because  the  Lord
himself called himself her “Spouse” (Mark 2:19). The
Lord  has  loved  the  Church  and  has  joined  her  to
himself  in  an  everlasting  covenant.  He  has  given
himself  up  for  her  in  order  to  purify  her  with  his
blood  and  “sanctify  her”  (Ephesians  5:26),  making
her  the  fruitful  mother  of  all  the  children  of  God.
While  the  term  “body”  expresses  the  unity  of  the
“head”  with  the  members,  the  term  “bride”
emphasizes  the  distinction  of  the  two  in  their
personal relationship.

159. Why is the Church called the temple of the

Holy Spirit?

She is so called because the Holy Spirit resides in the
body  which  is  the  Church,  in  her  Head  and  in  her
members. He also builds up the Church in charity by
the  Word  of  God,  the  sacraments,  the  virtues,  and
charisms.

“What  the  soul  is  to  the  human  body,
the  Holy  Spirit  is  to  the  members  of
Christ, that is, the body of Christ, which
is the Church.” (St Augustine)

160. What are charisms?

Charisms are special gifts of the Holy Spirit which are
bestowed on individuals for the good of others, the
needs of the world, and in particular for the building
up of the Church. The discernment of charisms is the
responsibility of the Magisterium.

                                                                               !5

Friday, June  3:  Devotion  to  the  heart  pierced

on Calvary is nearly as old as Christianity, but it

has  undergone  many  changes  over  the

centuries. Patristic writers saw in the blood and

water  issuing  from  the  crucified  Lord’s  side

(John  19:34)  the  fulfillment  of  his  promise  to

give  living  water  (John  4:13–14;  7:37),  the

fountain  from  which  the  Spirit  flows  upon  the

Church. Medieval piety placed less emphasis on

Jesus’s heart as the source of grace and moved

toward  more  personal  and  sentimental

devotion.

The  public  cult  celebrated  today  began  in  the

seventeenth  century,  when  St.  John  Eudes

pressed  for  a  liturgy  (Mass  and  Office)  of  the

Sacred Heart. Toward the end of that century St.

Mary Margaret Alacoque received visions of the

Lord  exposing  his  heart  and  urging  public

devotion.  Her  apparitions  gave  impetus  to  the

devotion and shape to its purpose: to promote

greater  use  of  the  sacrament  of  penance  to

offset indifference to the Blessed Sacrament.

Pius VI saw the devotion as a means of refuting

Jansenism,  which  rejected  the  doctrine  that

Christ  died  for  all  people.  Clement  XIII  first

granted  the  petition  for  a  liturgical  observance

to  the  Polish  bishops  and  the  Roman

Archconfraternity  of  the  Sacred  Heart  in  1765.

Pius  IX  extended  the  observance  to  the

universal  Church  in  1856  and,  late  in  the

nineteenth century, Leo XIII raised its rank to a

feast.

Popular devotion includes the nine First Fridays

and  the  enthronement  of  an  image  of  the

Sacred Heart in homes as a sign that love is the

Christian way of life.

Comment:  A  Jewish  midrash  on  the  Exodus

account  of  Moses’s  encounter  with  God

compares the burning bush to the human heart:

the  only  created  thing  which  can  burn  without

being  consumed.  Yet  nothing  seems  to  be

harder  for  human  beings  to  believe  in  than

unconditional  love—love  that  is  neither

deserved nor earned. The Sacred Heart of Jesus,

aflame with an unquenchable fire, stands today

against  lingering  traces  of  Jansenism  as  a

powerful  symbol  of Christ’s  unquenchable  love

for the whole human race.

Quote: “Whoever does not love does not know

God. Why? Because God is Love. What more can

be  said,  my  Brothers?  If  one  did  not  find  one

word  in  praise  of  love  through  this  epistle,  nor

the least word throughout all the other pages of

Scripture, and we heard only this one word from

the  voice  of  the Spirit  of God:  Because  ‘God  is

Love,’  we  should  seek  for  nothing  more”

(St.

Augustine, Homily on the First Epistle of St. John).

The  1st  Reading:  Genesis  14:18-20;  Psalm

110:1-4; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26; Luke 9:11-17

At  the  dawn  of  salvation  history, God  revealed

our  future  in  figures. That's  what's  going  on  in

today's  First  Reading:  A  king  and  high  priest

comes from Jerusalem (see Psalm 76:3), offering

bread and wine to celebrate the victory of God's

beloved servant, Abram, over his foes.

By  his  offering,  Melchizedek  bestows  God's

blessings on Abram. He is showing us, too, how

one  day  we  will  receive God's  blessings  and  in

turn  "bless  God"—how  we  will  give  thanks  to

Him for delivering us from our enemies, sin and

death.

As  Paul  recalls  in  today's  Epistle,  Jesus

transformed the sign of bread and wine, making

it  a  sign  of  His  body  and  blood,  through  which

God bestows upon us the blessings of His "new

covenant."

Jesus  is  "the  priest  forever  according  to  the

order  of  Melchizedek,"  that  God,  in  today's

Psalm,  swears  will  rule  from  Zion,  the  new

Jerusalem (see Hebrews 6:20-7:3).

By  the  miracle  of  loaves  and  fishes,  Jesus  in

today's Gospel, again prefigures the blessings of

the Eucharist.

Notice  that  He  takes  the  bread,  blesses  it,

breaks it, and gives it to the Twelve. You find the

precise order and words in the Last Supper (see

Luke  22:19)  and  in  His  celebration  of  the

Eucharist  on  the  first  Easter  night  (see  Luke

24:30).

The  Eucharist  fulfills  the  offering  of

Melchizedek.  It  is  the  daily  miracle  of  the

heavenly high priesthood of Jesus

It  is  a  priesthood  He  conferred  upon  the

Apostles in ordering them to feed the crowd, in

filling exactly twelve baskets with leftover bread

—in  commanding  them  on  the  night  He  was

handed over: "Do this in remembrance of Me."

Through  His  priests  He  still  feeds  us  in  "the

deserted place" of our earthly exile.

And by this sign He pledges to us a glory yet to

come. For as often as we share in His body and

blood. we proclaim His victory over death, until

He comes again to make His victory our own.

abused  spouse  may  wish  to  allow  an  independent
specialist  such  as  a  priest  or  a  psychologist  to

The Church considers civil divorce in such cases to be

tolerates civil divorce sought for just cause (such as
to  ensure  personal  safety  and/or  the  safety  of
children)  to  settle  estate  and  child  custody

Question

Does  a  baptized  Catholic  who  has  received  first
confession  and  First  Communion  need  to  be
confirmed to be married in the Catholic Church?

Answer

While  it  is  not  an  absolute  requirement  that
Catholics  be  confirmed  before  they  are  married  in
the  Church,  confirmation  before  marriage  is
something  the Church  strongly  urges. The Code  of
Canon Law states:

Catholics  who  have  not  yet  received
the  sacrament  of  confirmation  are  to
receive  it  before  being  admitted  to
marriage,  if  this  can  be  done  without
grave inconvenience. (CIC 1065)

Question

Is marrying a relative allowed by the Church?

Answer

Consanguinity or relationship in the direct line (e.g.,
father-daughter,  grandmother-grandson)  always
prohibits marriage. In the indirect line, those related
only  as  closely  as  first  cousins  are  impeded  from
marrying  (CIC  1091),  but  such  an  impediment  for
first cousins may be dispensed by the bishop.

Question

Is it a sin to divorce a spouse who is physically and
emotionally  abusive,  after  many  attempts  at
resolving  the  behaviour  in  couple's  therapy  have
failed?

Answer

No, it is not a sin to divorce such a spouse. The Code
of Canon Law states:

A  spouse  who  occasions  grave  danger
of  soul  or  body  to  the  other  or  to  the
children,  or  otherwise  makes  the
common  life  unduly  difficult,  provides
the  other  spouse  with  a  reason  to
leave,  either  by  a  decree  of  the  local
ordinary  [e.g.,  bishop]  or,  if  there  is
danger in delay, even on his or her own
authority. (CIC 1153)

The  canon  does  go  on  to  state  that  once  such  a
danger has passed, common life should be restored,
but given the unique difficulties of abuse cases (e.g.,
