CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

Part One—The Profession of Faith

“I BELIEVE” – “WE BELIEVE”

1. What is the plan of God for man?

God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of
sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in
his own blessed life. In the fullness of time, God the Father
sent  his  Son  as  the  Redeemer  and  Saviour  of  mankind,
fallen into sin, thus calling all into his Church and, through
the work of the Holy Spirit, making them adopted children
and heirs of his eternal happiness.

MAN'S CAPACITY FOR GOD

“You are great, O Lord, and greatly to be praised [...]

You have made us for yourself and our heart is

restless until it rests in you.”

(Saint Augustine)

2. Why does man have a desire for God?

God himself, in creating man in his own image, has written
upon his heart the desire to see him. Even if this desire is
often ignored, God never ceases to draw man to himself
because  only  in  God  will  he  find  and  live  the  fullness  of
truth  and  happiness  for  which  he  never  stops  searching.
By  nature  and  by  vocation,  therefore,  man  is  a  religious
being, capable of entering into communion with God. This
intimate  and  vital  bond  with  God  confers  on  man  his
fundamental dignity.

3. How is it possible to know God with only the light of

human reason?

Starting  from  creation,  that  is  from  the  world  and  from
the  human  person,  through  reason  alone  one  can  know
God with certainty as the origin and end of the universe,
as the highest good and as infinite truth and beauty.

4. Is the light of reason alone sufficient to know the

mystery of God?

In  coming  to  a  knowledge  of God  by  the  light  of  reason
alone  man  experiences  many  difficulties.  Indeed,  on  his
own  he  is  unable  to  enter  into  the  intimacy  of  the  divine
mystery.  This  is  why  he  stands  in  need  of  being
enlightened  by  God’s  revelation,  not  only  about  those
things that exceed his understanding, but also about those
religious  and  moral  truths  which  of  themselves  are  not
beyond  the  grasp  of  human  reason,  so  that  even  in  the
present condition of the human race, they can be known
by all with ease, with firm certainty and with no admixture
of error.

5. How can we speak about God?

By taking as our starting point the perfections of man and
of  the  other  creatures  which  are  a  reflection,  albeit  a
limited one, of the infinite perfection of God, we are able
to  speak  about  God  with  all  people.  We  must,  however,
continually  purify  our  language  insofar  as  it  is  image-
bound  and  imperfect,  realizing  that  we  can  never  fully
express the infinite mystery of God.

HUMANITARIAN RELIEF EFFORT

Thanks

We  are  grateful  for  the  continued  support  and
generosity of our parishioners toward the work of the
church not only in the archdiocese, but also toward our
brothers and sisters in Christ in the greater world.
In response to the appeal by the Canadian Conference
of  Catholic  Bishops  to  support  the  Pray-Give-Speak
Out  campaign,  the  parishes  and  parishioners  of  the
archdiocese  raised  $750,000  to  support  the
humanitarian  relief  effort  in  South  Sudan,  Yemen,
Nigeria  and  Somalia
.  These  funds  have  been
transferred to three organizations: Aid to the Church in
Need,  Canadian  Jesuits  International  and
Development & Peace - Caritas Canada.
Please  extend  our  collective  appreciation  to  your
parishioners  for  their  generosity  toward  this  relief
effort.

FEASTS OF THE WEEK

MemorialTHE  COMMEMORATION  OF  ALL  THE
FAITHFUL  DEPARTED  (ALL  SOULS)
—Date:
Thursday,  November  2:
 The  The  Church  has
encouraged  prayer  for  the  dead  from  the  earliest
times  as  an  act  of  Christian  charity.  “If  we  had  no
care for the dead,” Augustine noted, “we would not
be in the habit of praying for them.” Yet pre-Christian
rites for the deceased retained such a strong hold on
the  superstitious  imagination  that  a  liturgical
commemoration  was  not  observed  until  the  early
Middle Ages, when monastic communities began to
mark  an  annual  day  of  prayer  for  the  departed
members.

In the middle of the 11th century, Saint Odilo, abbot
of  Cluny,  France,  decreed  that  all  Cluniac
monasteries offer special prayers and sing the Office
for the Dead on Novr 2, the day after the feast of All
Saints. The custom spread from Cluny and was finally
adopted throughout the Roman Church.

The  feast  acknowledges  human  frailty.  Since  few
people achieve perfection in this life but, rather, go
to  the  grave  still  scarred  with  traces  of  sinfulness,
some period of purification is necessary before a soul
comes  face-to-face  with  God.  The  Council  of  Trent
affirmed this purgatory state and states the prayers
of the living can speed the process of purification.

…Observances  of  a  more  religious  nature  have
survived. These include public processions or private
visits  to  cemeteries  and  decorating  graves  with
flowers and lights. This feast is observed with great
fervor in Mexico.

Reflection:  Whether  or  not  one  should  pray  for  the
dead  is  one  of  the  great  arguments  which  divide
Christians. Appalled  by  the  abuse  of  indulgences  in
the  Church  of  his  day,  Martin  Luther  rejected  the
concept  of  purgatory. Yet  prayer  for  a  loved  one  is,
for the believer, a way of erasing any distance, even
death.  In  prayer  we  stand  in  God’s  presence  in  the
company  of  someone  we  love,  even  if  that  person
has gone before us into death.

THIS FAMILY LIVES

IN FLEMINGDON PARK

PLEASE HELP THEM

Fr Simon Guarantees This Is a Genuine Need

My name is Elyas Sadeqi Abdullah and I’m a grade 12
high school student. I have a sister 2 years older than

me. We are both diagnosed with Spinal Muscular

Atrophy type 2 (SMA ll) and we are both on power

wheelchairs at all times. The reason that I created this

page is because my family needs an accessible vehicle.

It would be very difficult for my family to pay for this
vehicle because of physical disability and none of my

family members work. This vehicle can help us by

getting easily to our medical appointments without

having to wait for a long period of time for the Wheel-

Trans to show up. The vehicle would easily

accommodate our wheel chairs and we won’t have to

worry about Wheel-Trans not showing up or arriving

late for our appointments. There are lots of activities
outside of school that we would like to do as a family

such as going to swimming, playing hockey,

volunteering in the community, etc. We have received

funding from four charities ($40,000) but it is not

enough to cover the whole cost of the vehicle (van has

to be converted—costs over $70,000). I would really

appreciate your help and any donation would help.

Sincerely, Elyas

This  Sunday’s  Readings:  Exodus  22:20-26;  Psalm
18:2-4,  47,  51;  1  Thessalonians  1:5-10;  Matthew
22:34-40

Jesus came not to abolish the Old Testament law but
to fulfill it (see Matthew 5:17)

And in today’s Gospel, He reveals that love – of God
and of neighbour – is the fulfillment of the whole of
the law (see Romans 13:8-10).

Devout  Israelites  were  to  keep  all  613  commands
found in the Bible’s first five books. Jesus says today
that all these, and all the teachings of the prophets,
can  be  summarized  by  two  verses  of  this  law  (see
Deuteronomy 6:5; Leviticus 19:18).

He  seems  to  summarize  the  two  stone  tablets  on
which  God  was  said  to  have  engraved  the  ten
commandments  (see  Exodus  32:15-16).  The  first
tablet set out three laws concerning the love of God
– such as the command not to take His name in vain;
the  second  contained  seven  commands  regarding
love of neighbour, such as those against stealing and
adultery.

Love  is  the  hinge  that  binds  the  two  tablets  of  the
law. For we can’t love God, whom we can’t see, if we
don’t love our neighbour, whom we can (see 1 John
4:20-22).

But this love we are called to is far more than simple
affection or warm sentiment. We must give ourselves
totally to God – loving with our whole beings, with all
our heart, soul and mind. Our love for our neighbour
must express itself in concrete actions, such as those
set out in today’s First Reading.

We love because He first loved us (see 1 John 4:19).
As  we  sing  in  today’s  Psalm,  He  has  been  our
deliverer,  our  strength  when  we  could  not  possibly
defend  ourselves  against  the  enemies  of  sin  and
death.

We love in thanksgiving for our salvation. And in this
become imitators of Jesus, as Paul tells us in today’s
Epistle – laying down our lives daily in ways large and
small,  seen  and  unseen;  our  lives  offered  as  a
continual  sacrifice  of  praise  (see  John  15:12-13;
Hebrews 13:15).

“You Shall Love The Lord Your God With All Your Heart, And All Your Soul, And

With All Your Mind…You Shall Love Your Neighbour As Yourself”

CATHOLIC ANSWERS

www.catholic.com

TRICK OR TREAT IS HARMLESS FUN

Question
Is  it  against Catholic  teaching  to  pass  out  candy  to
children on Halloween night?
Answer
The  Church  has  placed  no  restrictions  on  the
celebration  of  Halloween.  Contrary  to  what  many
people think, All Hollow’s Eve (Halloween) is not an
evil,  pagan  festival.  It’s  actually  a  centuries-old
Christian feast celebrated on the evening preceding
All Saints Day (November 1) in commemoration of all
the  saints  in  heaven,  known  and  unknown.  In
preparation  for  the  evening  vigil,  people  would  fast
and pray and celebrate Christ’s victory over death.

Although  the  secularized  version  of  Halloween  has
lost  the  focus  on  the  true  meaning  of  this  feast,
activities  such  as  passing  out  candy,  dressing  up  in
costumes,  carving  pumpkins,  and  all  the  other
accoutrements  of  Halloween  should  not  be  viewed
as  evil.  You  are  free  to  take  part  in  Halloween
festivities or not. But if you do, it’s good to keep in
mind that the Church calls us to act as witnesses of
the  gospel  and  to  guard  against  committing  any
offences against truth.

The duty of Christians to take part in the
life  of  the  Church  impels  them  to  act  as
witnesses  of  the  Gospel  and  of  the
obligations that flow from it. This witness
is a transmission of the faith in words and
deeds

(Catechism 2472)
