ShareLife

Living the Gospel by providing for

homeless youth…

On a given night, 6,000 people across

Canada between 16 and 24 have

nowhere to call home. This represents

20 per cent of the total homeless

population. In Toronto, estimates of

homeless youth range from 900 to

2,000 nightly.

The ShareLife–supported Rights of

Passage program at Covenant House

have been active in making a positive

difference in the lives of homeless

youth on the streets of Toronto. 75 % of

these youth have been matched with

mentors and have also made progress

in strengthening their life skills and

family relationships, getting them

ready for life on their own. In addition,

the ShareLife funded Youth In

Transition programs helps youth in

foster care to transition to independent

living. .

Sunday April 2, 2017 is

ShareLife Sunday

Please give generously.

CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC 

CHURCH 

PART THREE—LIFE IN CHRIST

God's Salvation: Law and Grace

THE CHURCH MOTHER AND TEACHER

429. How does the Church nourish the moral life of

a Christian?

The Church is the community in which the Christian
receives the Word of God, the teachings of the “Law
of  Christ”

(Galatians  6:2)

,  and  the  grace  of  the

sacraments. Christians  are  united  to  the  Eucharistic
sacrifice of Christ in such a way that their moral life is
an  act  of  spiritual  worship;  and  they  learn  the
example  of  holiness  from  the  Virgin  Mary  and  the
lives of the Saints.

430. Why does the Magisterium of the Church act

in the field of morality?

It  is  the  duty  of  the  Magisterium  of  the  Church  to
preach  the  faith  that  is  to  be  believed  and  put  into
practice in life. This duty extends even to the specific
precepts of the natural law because their observance
is necessary for salvation.

431. What purpose do the precepts of the Church

have?

The  five  precepts  of  the  Church  are  meant  to
guarantee  for  the  faithful  the  indispensable
minimum in the spirit of prayer, the sacramental life,
moral  commitment  and  growth  in  love  of  God  and
neighbour.

432. What are the precepts of the Church?

They  are:  1)  to  attend  Mass  on  Sundays  and  other
holy days of obligation and to refrain from work and
activities  which  could  impede  the  sanctification  of
those  days;  2)  to  confess  one's  sins,  receiving  the
sacrament of Reconciliation at least once each year;
3) to receive the sacrament of the Eucharist at least
during  the  Easter  season;  4)  to  abstain  from  eating
meat and to observe the days of fasting established
by  the  Church;  and  5)  to  help  to  provide  for  the
material needs of the Church, each according to his
own ability.

433. Why is the Christian moral life indispensable

for the proclamation of the Gospel?

Because their lives are conformed to the Lord Jesus,
Christians draw others to faith in the true God, build
up the Church, inform the world with the spirit of the

Gospel,  and  hasten  the  coming  of  the  Kingdom  of
God.

SMILE

A local Charity office realized that the

organization had never received a donation from

the town's most successful lawyer. The person in

charge of contributions called him to persuade

him to contribute. "Our research shows that out of

a yearly income of at least $500,000, you did not
give a penny to charity. Wouldn't you like to give

back to the community in some way?" The lawyer
mulled this over for a moment and replied, "First,

did your research also show that my mother is
dying after a long illness, and has medical bills

that are several times her annual income?"

Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbled, "Um,

no." The lawyer interrupts, "Or that my brother, a

disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a

wheelchair?" The stricken United Way rep began
to stammer out an apology, but was interrupted

again. "Or that my sister's husband died in a traffic

accident," the lawyer's voice rising in indignation,

"leaving her penniless with three children?!" The

humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten,

said simply, "I had no idea." On a roll, the lawyer

cut him off once again, "So if I don't give any

money to them, why should I give any to you?" -

Our Service for and with the Poor

This doesn’t need to feel out of our reach.   In

so many reflective ways, we can make choices

to  act  in  solidarity  with  those  for  whom  we

desire to have a special care, and from whom

we  know  we  will  learn  much  about  faith  and

trust in God.

Soup kitchen - food pantry

So  many  people  depend  upon  our  charity,  in

societies  that  can’t  yet  provide  for  an  equal

distribution of our resources, and offer means

for a growth in dignity and justice in attaining

them.    Imagine  if  we  take  some  time  to

research  how  the  poorest  of  the  poor  are

cared for in our area. We may want to practice

our  generosity  in  preparing  food,  serving  it

ourselves  or  sharing  what  we  have  with  food

pantries  that  offer  daily  survival  for  those  in

need. Imagine if we felt inspired to go deeper.

What  graces  might  come  to  us  if  we  were  to

go to a meal program and sit with and visit the

poor?    What  fear  would  we  need  to

overcome?    What  might  we  learn  if  we  ask

how  they  are  getting  along?    Or  ask  them

about their faith?   Perhaps we might grow in

courage to bring our children or friends. How

might  we  return  to  our  lives  with  greater

freedom and trust?

What else might we do, that fits with

our  circumstances  and  the  needs

around me and in the world?

Spring Cleaning for Freedom

So many of us have accumulated much more

than  we  need.  It  bursts  from  our  closets,

overflows  our  shelves  and  clutters  our  lives.

Lent  might  be  a  wonderful  time  to

deliberately  release  ourselves  from  the  many

“things”  we  own  by  cleaning  out  our  closets

and  simplifying  our  lives  in  a  prayerful  and

intentional way.

On one level, this is ridding ourselves of things

we don't need, or things that we hated to part

with  except  that  they  are  so  "out  of  style."

Certainly,  many  of  us  have  many  things  that

are "extra" or "unneeded" for us, but could be

wonderful  for  those  who  can't  afford  to  buy

clothes at a store. Another level of this journey

into personal freedom is to ask ourselves how

much I really do need. How many sweaters do

I want to choose to have? How many jackets,

sport  shirts,  dresses,  shoes?  How  much

jewelry? How much sporting equipment? How

much  electronic  equipment?  How  many  sets

of silverware or dishes? How much of so many

things  we  have  in  our  lives?  We  can  get  as

serious and go as deeply into this as we desire

to find fruit.

This  is  not  "should  I  get  rid  of  what  I  don't

need?" This  is  different,  more  faith-filled  and

takes us into giving up 'good' stuff -- perhaps

stuff we are attached to -- because we want to

experience the exercise of freedom. We do this

because we sense that we are not free in some

areas that are tremendously important for us,

important  for  our  salvation,  and  growing  in

freedom before the things of our lives can be a

great grace.

This  freedom,  too,  will  place  us  in  greater

solidarity  with  those  who  find  such  great

happiness  and  joy  in  trusting  in  God,  while

having so much less than we imagine we could

survive on.

What else might we do, that fits with

my  circumstances  and  the  needs

around us and in the world?

March 19, 2017 

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________________________________________________ 

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

                                                                               !6

This  Sunday’s  Readings:  Exodus  17:3-7;  Psalm
9 5 : 1 - 2 ,  6 - 9 ;  R o m a n s  5 : 1 - 2 ,  5 - 8 ;  J o h n
4:5-15,19-26,39-42

The  Israelites'  hearts  were  hardened  by  their
hardships in the desert.

Though  they  saw  His  mighty  deeds,  in  their  thirst
they grumble and put God to the test in today's First
Reading—a crisis point recalled also in today's Psalm.
Jesus  is  thirsty  too  in  today's Gospel.  He  thirsts  for
souls

(see  John  19:28)

.  He  longs  to  give  the  Samaritan

woman the living waters that well up to eternal life.

These  waters  couldn't  be  drawn  from  the  well  of
Jacob,  father  of  the  Israelites  and  the  Samaritans.
But Jesus was something greater than Jacob

(see Luke

11:31-32).

The  Samaritans  were  Israelites  who  escaped  exile
when  Assyria  conquered  the  Northern  Kingdom
eight  centuries  before Christ

(see  2  Kings  17:6,24-41)

. They

were  despised  for  intermarrying  with  non-Israelites
and worshipping at Mount Gerazim, not Jerusalem.

But  Jesus  tells  the  woman  that  the  "hour"  of  true
worship is coming, when all will worship God in Spirit
and truth.

Jesus' "hour" is the "appointed time" that Paul speaks
of in today's Epistle. It is the hour when the Rock of
our salvation was struck on the Cross. Struck by the
soldier's  lance,  living  waters  flowed  out  from  our
Rock

(see John 19:34-37)

.

These waters are the Holy Spirit

(see John 7:38-39)

, the gift

of God

(see Hebrews 6:4)

.

By  the  living  waters  the  ancient  enmities  of
Samaritans  and  Jews  have  been  washed  away,  the
dividing  wall  between  Israel  and  the  nations  is
broken  down

(see  Ephesians  2:12-14,18)

.  Since  His  hour,  all

may drink of the Spirit in Baptism

(see 1 Corinthians 12:13).

In this Eucharist, the Lord now is in our midst—as He
was at the Rock of Horeb and at the well of Jacob.

In  the  "today"  of  our  Liturgy,  He  calls  us  to
believe: "I am He," come to pour out the love of
God into our hearts through the Holy Spirit. How
can  we  continue  to  worship  as  if  we  don't
understand?  How  can  our  hearts  remain
hardened?

“…And We Know That This Is Tuly The Saviour Of The World.“

The Samaritans

                                                                               !7

Full Question (Saints)
What  Scripture  verse(s)  can  be  used  to  support  the
belief that saints in heaven are alive?
Answer
The  Bible  does  teach  that  the  saints  are
alive. Consider, for example, that Jesus teaches that
the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is “not God not
of the dead, but of the living” (Matt. 22:32; see also
22:23-33).  In  addition,  Moses  and  Elijah  are  alive  to
Jesus  at  the Transfiguration  and  converse  with  him,
even though their earthly deaths had occurred many
years  before  (see  Matt.  17:1-8).  For  further  reading,
please  read  the  Catholic  Answers  tract  "Praying  to
the Saints.”

Full Question (Am I Confirmed?)
I  was  confirmed  at  the  age  of  13.  At  the  time  I
considered myself an atheist, and I was not receptive
to  the  sacrament.  I  only  recently  returned  to  the
Catholic  faith.  Is  there  any  possibility  that  I  could
receive a second chance at confirmation?
Answer
For  the  sacrament  of  confirmation  to  be  conferred
validly, the recipient must at least have the intention
of receiving it. It would seem that at the time you did
not  have  the  necessary  intention  of  receiving  the
sacrament, so you did not validly receive it. But don’t
worry.  While  confirmation  cannot  be  repeated,  it
may  be  conferred  conditionally  in  a  case  such  as
yours.  I  recommend  that  you  contact  your  pastor
about this.

Full Question (God-parents)
My  daughter’s  choice  of  godparents  for  her  son  are
two people who were brought up Catholic, but who
have not been confirmed. Can an infant be baptized
if the godparents haven’t been confirmed?
Answer
Godparents must be confirmed, so other godparents
should  be  chosen  if  possible.  If  this  is  not  possible,
then  your  grandson  should  be  baptized  without
godparents.  The  Code  of  Canon  Law  specifies  the
requirements for godparents:

To be permitted to take on the function of sponsor a
person must:

1. be designated by the one to be baptized,
by the parents or the person who takes their
place,  or  in  their  absence  by  the  pastor  or
minister and have the aptitude and intention
of fulfilling this function;
2.  have  completed  the  16th  year  of  age,
unless  the  diocesan  bishop  has  established
another  age,  or  the  pastor  or  minister  has
granted an exception for a just cause;
3. be a Catholic who has been confirmed and
has  already  received  the  most  holy
sacrament of the Eucharist and who leads a
life  of  faith  in  keeping  with  the  function  to
be taken on;
4.  not  be  bound  by  any  canonical  penalty
legitimately imposed or declared;
5 not be the father or mother of the one to
be baptized. (CIC 874)

ShareLife

Living the Gospel by providing for

homeless youth…

On a given night, 6,000 people across

Canada between 16 and 24 have

nowhere to call home. This represents

20 per cent of the total homeless

population. In Toronto, estimates of

homeless youth range from 900 to

2,000 nightly.

The ShareLife–supported Rights of

Passage program at Covenant House

have been active in making a positive

difference in the lives of homeless

youth on the streets of Toronto. 75 % of

these youth have been matched with

mentors and have also made progress

in strengthening their life skills and

family relationships, getting them

ready for life on their own. In addition,

the ShareLife funded Youth In

Transition programs helps youth in

foster care to transition to independent

living. .

Sunday April 2, 2017 is

ShareLife Sunday

Please give generously.

CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC 

CHURCH 

PART THREE—LIFE IN CHRIST

God's Salvation: Law and Grace

THE CHURCH MOTHER AND TEACHER

429. How does the Church nourish the moral life of

a Christian?

The Church is the community in which the Christian
receives the Word of God, the teachings of the “Law
of  Christ”

(Galatians  6:2)

,  and  the  grace  of  the

sacraments. Christians  are  united  to  the  Eucharistic
sacrifice of Christ in such a way that their moral life is
an  act  of  spiritual  worship;  and  they  learn  the
example  of  holiness  from  the  Virgin  Mary  and  the
lives of the Saints.

430. Why does the Magisterium of the Church act

in the field of morality?

It  is  the  duty  of  the  Magisterium  of  the  Church  to
preach  the  faith  that  is  to  be  believed  and  put  into
practice in life. This duty extends even to the specific
precepts of the natural law because their observance
is necessary for salvation.

431. What purpose do the precepts of the Church

have?

The  five  precepts  of  the  Church  are  meant  to
guarantee  for  the  faithful  the  indispensable
minimum in the spirit of prayer, the sacramental life,
moral  commitment  and  growth  in  love  of  God  and
neighbour.

432. What are the precepts of the Church?

They  are:  1)  to  attend  Mass  on  Sundays  and  other
holy days of obligation and to refrain from work and
activities  which  could  impede  the  sanctification  of
those  days;  2)  to  confess  one's  sins,  receiving  the
sacrament of Reconciliation at least once each year;
3) to receive the sacrament of the Eucharist at least
during  the  Easter  season;  4)  to  abstain  from  eating
meat and to observe the days of fasting established
by  the  Church;  and  5)  to  help  to  provide  for  the
material needs of the Church, each according to his
own ability.

433. Why is the Christian moral life indispensable

for the proclamation of the Gospel?

Because their lives are conformed to the Lord Jesus,
Christians draw others to faith in the true God, build
up the Church, inform the world with the spirit of the

Gospel,  and  hasten  the  coming  of  the  Kingdom  of
God.

SMILE

A local Charity office realized that the

organization had never received a donation from

the town's most successful lawyer. The person in

charge of contributions called him to persuade

him to contribute. "Our research shows that out of

a yearly income of at least $500,000, you did not
give a penny to charity. Wouldn't you like to give

back to the community in some way?" The lawyer
mulled this over for a moment and replied, "First,

did your research also show that my mother is
dying after a long illness, and has medical bills

that are several times her annual income?"

Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbled, "Um,

no." The lawyer interrupts, "Or that my brother, a

disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a

wheelchair?" The stricken United Way rep began
to stammer out an apology, but was interrupted

again. "Or that my sister's husband died in a traffic

accident," the lawyer's voice rising in indignation,

"leaving her penniless with three children?!" The

humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten,

said simply, "I had no idea." On a roll, the lawyer

cut him off once again, "So if I don't give any

money to them, why should I give any to you?" -

Our Service for and with the Poor

This doesn’t need to feel out of our reach.   In

so many reflective ways, we can make choices

to  act  in  solidarity  with  those  for  whom  we

desire to have a special care, and from whom

we  know  we  will  learn  much  about  faith  and

trust in God.

Soup kitchen - food pantry

So  many  people  depend  upon  our  charity,  in

societies  that  can’t  yet  provide  for  an  equal

distribution of our resources, and offer means

for a growth in dignity and justice in attaining

them.    Imagine  if  we  take  some  time  to

research  how  the  poorest  of  the  poor  are

cared for in our area. We may want to practice

our  generosity  in  preparing  food,  serving  it

ourselves  or  sharing  what  we  have  with  food

pantries  that  offer  daily  survival  for  those  in

need. Imagine if we felt inspired to go deeper.

What  graces  might  come  to  us  if  we  were  to

go to a meal program and sit with and visit the

poor?    What  fear  would  we  need  to

overcome?    What  might  we  learn  if  we  ask

how  they  are  getting  along?    Or  ask  them

about their faith?   Perhaps we might grow in

courage to bring our children or friends. How

might  we  return  to  our  lives  with  greater

freedom and trust?

What else might we do, that fits with

our  circumstances  and  the  needs

around me and in the world?

Spring Cleaning for Freedom

So many of us have accumulated much more

than  we  need.  It  bursts  from  our  closets,

overflows  our  shelves  and  clutters  our  lives.

Lent  might  be  a  wonderful  time  to

deliberately  release  ourselves  from  the  many

“things”  we  own  by  cleaning  out  our  closets

and  simplifying  our  lives  in  a  prayerful  and

intentional way.

On one level, this is ridding ourselves of things

we don't need, or things that we hated to part

with  except  that  they  are  so  "out  of  style."

Certainly,  many  of  us  have  many  things  that

are "extra" or "unneeded" for us, but could be

wonderful  for  those  who  can't  afford  to  buy

clothes at a store. Another level of this journey

into personal freedom is to ask ourselves how

much I really do need. How many sweaters do

I want to choose to have? How many jackets,

sport  shirts,  dresses,  shoes?  How  much

jewelry? How much sporting equipment? How

much  electronic  equipment?  How  many  sets

of silverware or dishes? How much of so many

things  we  have  in  our  lives?  We  can  get  as

serious and go as deeply into this as we desire

to find fruit.

This  is  not  "should  I  get  rid  of  what  I  don't

need?" This  is  different,  more  faith-filled  and

takes us into giving up 'good' stuff -- perhaps

stuff we are attached to -- because we want to

experience the exercise of freedom. We do this

because we sense that we are not free in some

areas that are tremendously important for us,

important  for  our  salvation,  and  growing  in

freedom before the things of our lives can be a

great grace.

This  freedom,  too,  will  place  us  in  greater

solidarity  with  those  who  find  such  great

happiness  and  joy  in  trusting  in  God,  while

having so much less than we imagine we could

survive on.

What else might we do, that fits with

my  circumstances  and  the  needs

around us and in the world?

March 19, 2017 

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________________________________________________ 

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

                                                                               !6

This  Sunday’s  Readings:  Exodus  17:3-7;  Psalm
9 5 : 1 - 2 ,  6 - 9 ;  R o m a n s  5 : 1 - 2 ,  5 - 8 ;  J o h n
4:5-15,19-26,39-42

The  Israelites'  hearts  were  hardened  by  their
hardships in the desert.

Though  they  saw  His  mighty  deeds,  in  their  thirst
they grumble and put God to the test in today's First
Reading—a crisis point recalled also in today's Psalm.
Jesus  is  thirsty  too  in  today's Gospel.  He  thirsts  for
souls

(see  John  19:28)

.  He  longs  to  give  the  Samaritan

woman the living waters that well up to eternal life.

These  waters  couldn't  be  drawn  from  the  well  of
Jacob,  father  of  the  Israelites  and  the  Samaritans.
But Jesus was something greater than Jacob

(see Luke

11:31-32).

The  Samaritans  were  Israelites  who  escaped  exile
when  Assyria  conquered  the  Northern  Kingdom
eight  centuries  before Christ

(see  2  Kings  17:6,24-41)

. They

were  despised  for  intermarrying  with  non-Israelites
and worshipping at Mount Gerazim, not Jerusalem.

But  Jesus  tells  the  woman  that  the  "hour"  of  true
worship is coming, when all will worship God in Spirit
and truth.

Jesus' "hour" is the "appointed time" that Paul speaks
of in today's Epistle. It is the hour when the Rock of
our salvation was struck on the Cross. Struck by the
soldier's  lance,  living  waters  flowed  out  from  our
Rock

(see John 19:34-37)

.

These waters are the Holy Spirit

(see John 7:38-39)

, the gift

of God

(see Hebrews 6:4)

.

By  the  living  waters  the  ancient  enmities  of
Samaritans  and  Jews  have  been  washed  away,  the
dividing  wall  between  Israel  and  the  nations  is
broken  down

(see  Ephesians  2:12-14,18)

.  Since  His  hour,  all

may drink of the Spirit in Baptism

(see 1 Corinthians 12:13).

In this Eucharist, the Lord now is in our midst—as He
was at the Rock of Horeb and at the well of Jacob.

In  the  "today"  of  our  Liturgy,  He  calls  us  to
believe: "I am He," come to pour out the love of
God into our hearts through the Holy Spirit. How
can  we  continue  to  worship  as  if  we  don't
understand?  How  can  our  hearts  remain
hardened?

“…And We Know That This Is Tuly The Saviour Of The World.“

Full Question (Saints)
What  Scripture  verse(s)  can  be  used  to  support  the
belief that saints in heaven are alive?
Answer
The  Bible  does  teach  that  the  saints  are
alive. Consider, for example, that Jesus teaches that
the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is “not God not
of the dead, but of the living” (Matt. 22:32; see also
22:23-33).  In  addition,  Moses  and  Elijah  are  alive  to
Jesus  at  the Transfiguration  and  converse  with  him,
even though their earthly deaths had occurred many
years  before  (see  Matt.  17:1-8).  For  further  reading,
please  read  the  Catholic  Answers  tract  "Praying  to
the Saints.”

Full Question (Am I Confirmed?)
I  was  confirmed  at  the  age  of  13.  At  the  time  I
considered myself an atheist, and I was not receptive
to  the  sacrament.  I  only  recently  returned  to  the
Catholic  faith.  Is  there  any  possibility  that  I  could
receive a second chance at confirmation?
Answer
For  the  sacrament  of  confirmation  to  be  conferred
validly, the recipient must at least have the intention
of receiving it. It would seem that at the time you did
not  have  the  necessary  intention  of  receiving  the
sacrament, so you did not validly receive it. But don’t
worry.  While  confirmation  cannot  be  repeated,  it
may  be  conferred  conditionally  in  a  case  such  as
yours.  I  recommend  that  you  contact  your  pastor
about this.

Full Question (God-parents)
My  daughter’s  choice  of  godparents  for  her  son  are
two people who were brought up Catholic, but who
have not been confirmed. Can an infant be baptized
if the godparents haven’t been confirmed?
Answer
Godparents must be confirmed, so other godparents
should  be  chosen  if  possible.  If  this  is  not  possible,
then  your  grandson  should  be  baptized  without
godparents.  The  Code  of  Canon  Law  specifies  the
requirements for godparents:

To be permitted to take on the function of sponsor a
person must:

1. be designated by the one to be baptized,
by the parents or the person who takes their
place,  or  in  their  absence  by  the  pastor  or
minister and have the aptitude and intention
of fulfilling this function;
2.  have  completed  the  16th  year  of  age,
unless  the  diocesan  bishop  has  established
another  age,  or  the  pastor  or  minister  has
granted an exception for a just cause;
3. be a Catholic who has been confirmed and
has  already  received  the  most  holy
sacrament of the Eucharist and who leads a
life  of  faith  in  keeping  with  the  function  to
be taken on;
4.  not  be  bound  by  any  canonical  penalty
legitimately imposed or declared;
5 not be the father or mother of the one to
be baptized. (CIC 874)

7:00-9:00pm in the Parish hall.

Current Series: Lenten Season

We will journey together

through the Lenten season, a

time of repentance, prayer and

fasting with reflections, prayer

and activities. During this

Lenten liturgical season leading

to the remembrance of the death

and resurrection of our Lord and

Saviour, Jesus Christ, we will

commit ourselves to spiritual

exercises and discipline that will

not only encourage us to abstain

from sin, but renew our

baptismal commitment with a

conversion of our hearts and

minds as followers of Christ.
