CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

Part One—The Profession of Faith

I Believe in God the Father

HEAVEN AND EARTH

59. What did God create?

Sacred Scripture  says,  “In  the  beginning, God  created
the  heavens  and  the  earth”

(Gen1:1)

. The  Church  in  her

profession of faith proclaims that God is the Creator of
everything,  visible  and  invisible,  of  all  spiritual  and
corporeal  beings,  that  is,  of  angels  and  of  the  visible
world and, in a special way, of man.

60. Who are the angels?

The  angels  are  purely  spiritual  creatures,  incorporeal,
invisible, immortal, and personal beings endowed with
intelligence and will. They ceaselessly contemplate God
face-to-face and they glorify him. They serve him and
are his messengers in the accomplishment of his saving
mission to all.

61. In what way are angels present in the life of the

Church?

The  Church  joins  with  the  angels  in  adoring  God,
invokes  their  assistance  and  commemorates  some  in
her liturgy.

“  Beside  each  believer  stands  an  angel  as  a
protector and shepherd leading him to life.”

(Saint

Basil the Great)

62. What does Sacred Scripture teach about the

creation of the visible world?

Through  the  account  of  the  “six  days”  of  creation
Sacred  Scripture  teaches  us  the  value  of  the  created
world  and  its  purpose,  namely,  to  praise  God  and  to
serve  humanity.  Every  single  thing  owes  its  very
existence  to God  from  whom  it  receives  its  goodness
and perfection, its proper laws and its proper place in
the universe.

63. What is the place of the human person in

creation?

The human person is the summit of visible creation in
as  much  as  he  or  she  is  created  in  the  image  and
likeness of God.

64. What kind of bond exists between created

things?

There exist an interdependence and a hierarchy among

creatures as willed by God. At the same time, there is

also  a  unity  and  solidarity  among  creatures  since  all

have  the  same  Creator,  are  loved  by  him  and  are

ordered  to  his  glory.  Respecting  the  laws  inscribed  in

creation and the relations which derive from the nature

of  things  is,  therefore,  a  principle  of  wisdom  and  a

foundation for morality.

65. What is the relationship between the work of

creation and the work of redemption?

The  work  of  creation  culminates  in  the  still  greater
work of redemption, which in fact gives rise to a new
creation  in  which  everything  will  recover  its  true
meaning and fulfillment.

MAJOR RELIC OF SAINT FRANCIS XAVIER

T

o Visit The Archdiocese Of Toronto—Jan 12 – 14

A first-degree relic of missionary St Francis Xavier is
coming to the Archdiocese of Toronto. The forearm of
the saint, permanently displayed at the Church of the
Gesù  in  Rome…will  be  hosted  by  St.  Michael’s
Cathedral  Basilica  Jan12,  St  Francis  Xavier  Church,
Mississauga  Jan13  &  Our  Lady  of  Lourdes  Parish,
Toronto Jan14.

This  is  the  first  time  the  relic  has  been  on Canadian
soil. The  body  of  St  Francis  Xavier,  which  is  in Goa,
India,  as  well  as  the  relic  of  his  arm,  are  incorrupt—
they  have  not  experienced  natural  decay  since  his
death  in  1552. Close  to  100,000  people  will  visit  the
various events across the country—the same number
of people it is believed Francis baptized with his right
arm and hand.

FEASTS OF THE WEEK

St  Stephen,  The  First  Martyr—Tues,  Dec  26:  “…They
chose  Stephen,  a  man  filled  with  faith  and  the  Holy
Spirit…”

(Acts6:1-5)

.  Acts  of  the  Apostles  says  that  Stephen

was a man filled with grace and power, who worked great
wonders  among  the  people.  Certain  Jews…persuaded
others to make the charge of blasphemy against him. He
was seized and carried before the Sanhedrin.

In  his  speech,  Stephen  recalled  God’s  guidance  through
Israel’s  history,  as  well  as  Israel’s  idolatry  and
disobedience.  He  then  claimed  that  his  persecutors  were
showing  this  same

spirit. “…you always

oppose  the  holy

Spirit;  you  are  just

like your ancestors”

(Acts  7:51b

).  “…he,

filled  with  the  holy

Spirit,  looked  up

i n t e n t l y

t o

heaven…and  he

said,  ‘Behold,  I  see

t h e  h e a v e n s

opened  and  the

S o n  o f  M a n

standing  at  the

right  hand  of  God.’

…They threw him out

of the city, and began

to  stone  him.  …As  they  were  stoning Stephen,  he  called
out, ‘Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.’ …’Lord, do not hold this
sin against them’”

(Acts 7:55-56, 58a, 59, 60b)

.

Reflection: Stephen…died with his eyes trustfully fixed on
God,  and  with  a  prayer  of  forgiveness  on  his  lips.  A
“happy”  death  is  one  that  finds  us  in  the  same  spirit,
whether our dying is as quiet as Joseph’s or as violent as
Stephen’s:  dying  with  courage,  total  trust  and  forgiving
love.

St John, Apostle, Evangelist—Wed, Dec 27: It is God who
calls; human beings answer. The vocation of John and his
brother James is stated very simply in the Gospels, along
with  that  of  Peter  and  his  brother  Andrew:  Jesus  called
them; they followed.

(Mtt4:21b-22)

.

For the three former fishermen—Peter, James and John—
that faith was to be rewarded by a special friendship with
Jesus…But John’s friendship was even
more  special….John’s  own  Gospel
refers  to  him  as  “the  disciple  whom
Jesus  loved”

(Jn13:23;19:26;20:2)

,  the  one

who reclined next to Jesus at the Last
Supper,  and  the  one  to  whom  Jesus
gave  the  exquisite  honour  of  caring
for his mother, as John stood beneath
the cross.

(Jn19:26b,27b)

.

Because of the depth of his Gospel, John is usually thought
of  as  the  eagle  of  theology,  soaring  in  high  regions  that
other writers did not enter.

On  the  first  Easter,  Mary  Magdalene  “ran  and  went  to
Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved,
and told them, ‘They have taken the Lord from the tomb,
and  we  don’t  know  where  they  put  him’”

(Jn20:2)

.  John

recalls, perhaps with a smile, that he and Peter ran side by

side…“the other disciple [John] also went in, the one who
had arrived at the tomb first, and he saw and believed”

(Jn

20:8)

.

John was with Peter when the first great miracle after the
Resurrection  took  place—the  cure  of  the  man  crippled
from  birth—which  led  to  their  spending  the  night  in  jail
together. The mysterious experience of the Resurrection is
perhaps  best  contained  in  the  words  of Acts:  “Observing
the boldness of Peter and John and perceiving them to be
uneducated,  ordinary  men,  they  [the  questioners]  were
amazed, and they recognized them as the companions of
Jesus”

(Acts 4:13)

.

The  Apostle  John  is  traditionally  considered  the  author
also  of  three  NT  letters  and  the  Book  of  Revelation.  His
Gospel is a very personal account. He sees the glorious and
divine Jesus  already  in  the  incidents  of  his  mortal  life. At
the Last Supper, John’s Jesus speaks as if he were already
in heaven. John’s is the Gospel of Jesus’ glory.
Reflection:  “The  way  we  came  to  know  love  was  that  he
laid down his life for us; so we ought to lay down our lives
for our brothers”

(1 John 3:16)

.

The Holy Innocents, Martyrs—Thurs, Dec 28: Herod “the
Great,”  king  of  Judea,  was…a  tyrant  capable  of  extreme
brutality. He killed his wife, his brother, and his sister’s two
husbands, to name only a few.

Mt2:1-18  tells  this  story:  Herod  was  “greatly  troubled”
when  astrologers

from  the  east

came  asking  the

whereabouts  of

“the  newborn  king

o f

t h e

J e w s , ” … . H e r o d

cunningly  told

them  to  report

back  to  him  so

that  he  could  also

“ d o

h i m

homage.”  They

f o u n d  J e s u s ,

offered  him  their

gifts,  and  warned

by  an  angel,  avoided  Herod  on  their  way  home.  Jesus
escaped to Egypt.
Herod  became  furious  and  “ordered  the  massacre  of  all
the  boys  in  Bethlehem  and  its  vicinity  two  years  old  and
under.” The horror of the massacre and the devastation of
the  mothers  and  fathers  led  Matt  to  quote  Jeremiah:  “A
voice was heard in Ramah, sobbing and loud lamentation;
Rachel weeping for her children…”

(Mt2:18)

. Rachel was the

wife of Jacob

(Israel)

. She is pictured as weeping at the place

where  the  Israelites  were  herded  together  by  the
conquering Assyrians for their march into captivity.

Reflection:  The  Holy  Innocents  are  few  in  comparison  to
the  genocide  and  abortion  of  our  day.  But  even  if  there
had  been  only  one,  we  recognize  the  greatest  treasure
God  put  on  the  earth—a  human  person,  destined  for
eternity, and graced by Jesus’ death and resurrection.

                                                                               !6

This  Sunday’s  Readings:  2  Samuel  7:1-5,  8-11,16;
Psalm 89:2-5,27,29; Romans 16:25-27; Luke 1:26-38

What is announced to Mary in today’s Gospel is the
revelation of all that the prophets had spoken. It is,
as Paul declares in today’s Epistle, the mystery kept
secret since before the foundation of the world (see
Ephesians 1:9; 3:3-9).

Mary  is  the  virgin  prophesied  to  bear  a  son  of  the
house of David (see Isaiah 7:13-14). And nearly every
word  the  angel  speaks  to  her  today  evokes  and
echoes the long history of salvation recorded in the
Bible.

Mary  is  hailed  as  the  daughter  Jerusalem,  called  to
rejoice  that  her  king,  the  Lord  God,  has  come  into
her midst as a mighty savior (see Zephaniah 3:14-17).
The One  whom  Mary  is  to  bear  will  be Son  of  “the
Most  High”  –  an  ancient  divine  title  first  used  to
describe  the  God  of  the  priest-king  Melchizedek,
who brought out bread and wine to bless Abraham at
the dawn of salvation history (see Genesis 14:18-19).

He  will  fulfill  the  covenant  God  makes  with  His
chosen  one,  David,  in  today’s  First  Reading.  As  we
sing in today’s Psalm, He will reign forever as highest
of  the  kings  of  the  earth,  and  He  will  call God,  “my
Father.”  As  Daniel  saw  the  Most  High  grant
everlasting dominion to the Son of Man (see Daniel
4:14; 7:14), His kingdom will have no end.

He is to rule over the house of Jacob – the title God
used in making His covenant with Israel at Sinai (see
Exodus  19:3),  and  again  used  in  promising  that  all
nations  would  worship  the God  of Jacob  (see  Isaiah
2:1-5).

Jesus  has  been  made  known,  Paul  says  today,  to
bring  all  nations  to  the  obedience  of  faith.  We  are
called with Mary today, to marvel at all that the Lord
has done throughout the ages for our salvation. And
we  too,  must  respond  to  this  annunciation  with
humble  obedience  –  that  His  will  be  done,  that  our
lives be lived according to His word.

“…Therefore The Child To Be Born Will Be Holy; He Will

Be Called Son Of God”

Gabriel

CATHOLIC ANSWERS

CHRISTMAS MASS OBLIGATION

Question
Is it obligatory to go to Mass on Christmas Day, which
this year falls on a Monday, if someone has gone Dec.
24 (Sunday) in the morning?
Answer
Yes,  there  are  two  Mass  obligations,  the  Sunday
obligation  and  the  Christmas  obligation.  A  person
cannot fulfill both obligations with one Mass. In order
to fulfill a Mass obligation, we must attend either on
the day of the feast or on the evening preceding (Code
of  Canon  Law  1248).  Therefore,  a  Sunday  morning
Mass could not possibly qualify as satisfying the Mass
obligation the following day, since it is in the morning.

In  order  to  satisfy  the  Sunday  obligation,  a  Catholic
could  attend  the  Saturday  evening  Mass  or  Mass  at
some time on Sunday.

In order to satisfy the Christmas obligation, a Catholic
could attend Mass on a Sunday at 4 p.m. or later or on
Christmas Day itself on Monday.

It does not matter what kind of Mass someone attends
so  long  as  he  attends  Mass  on  either  the  day  of  the
obligation  or  the  evening  preceding  and  does  so  for
each  obligation.  Therefore,  if  someone  attended  a
Saturday evening Mass for the Sunday obligation and
then  attended  Mass  again  on Sunday  at  6  p.m.,  that
would  satisfy  both  obligations,  even  if  the  second
Mass  was  a Sunday  Mass  and  not  a Christmas  Mass.
Likewise,  if  a  Catholic  attended  a  6  p.m.  Mass  on
Sunday  and  a  10  a.m.  Mass  on  Christmas  Day,  that
would  satisfy  both  obligations,  even  if  the  Sunday
evening Mass was a Christmas Mass as well.

contests, one service award, and one scholarship that

youth in our Parish can apply for. Deadlines are to be

Jean McCann Service Award

The Jean McCann Service Award for youth recognizes and

affirms the role played in our Parishes by our confirmed

Catholic youth ages 15-18. It is hoped that by recognizing

a young person with this award we can emphasize the

necessity of service to others and show appreciation to
