CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

PART FOUR—CHRISTIAN PRAYER

THE BATTLE OF PRAYER

572. Why is prayer a “battle”?

Prayer  is  a  gift  of  grace  but  it  always  presupposes  a
determined response on our part because those who
pray  “battle”  against  themselves,  their  surroundings,
and especially the Tempter who does all he can to turn
them  away  from  prayer.  The  battle  of  prayer  is
inseparable from progress in the spiritual life. We pray
as we live because we live as we pray.

573. Are there objections to prayer?

Along  with  erroneous  notions  of  prayer,  many  think
they  do  not  have  the  time  to  pray  or  that  praying  is
useless.  Those  who  pray  can  be  discouraged  in  the
face  of  difficulties  and  apparent  lack  of  success.
Humility,  trust  and  perseverance  are  necessary  to
overcome these obstacles.

574. What are the difficulties in prayer?

Distraction is a habitual difficulty in our prayer. It takes
our attention away from God and can also reveal what
we are attached to. Our heart therefore must humbly
turn to the Lord. Prayer is often affected by dryness.
Overcoming  this  difficulty  allows  us  to  cling  to  the
Lord in faith, even without any feeling of consolation.
Acedia  is  a  form  of  spiritual  laziness  due  to  relaxed
vigilance and a lack of custody of the heart.

575. How may we strengthen our filial trust?

Filial trust is tested when we think we are not heard.
We  must  therefore  ask  ourselves  if  we  think  God  is
truly a Father whose will we seek to fulfill, or simply a
means to obtain what we want. If our prayer is united
to that of Jesus, we know that he gives us much more
than this or that gift. We receive the Holy Spirit who
transforms our heart.

576. Is it possible to pray always?

Praying  is  always  possible  because  the  time  of  the
Christian  is  the  time  of  the  risen Christ  who  remains
“with us always”

(Matthew 28:20)

. Prayer and Christian life

are  therefore  inseparable:  “It  is  possible  to  offer
frequent and fervent prayer even at the market place
or  strolling  alone.  It  is  possible  also  in  your  place  of
business,  while  buying  or  selling,  or  even  while
cooking.”

(Saint John Chrysostom)

577. What is the prayer of the Hour of Jesus?

It  is  called  the  priestly  prayer  of  Jesus  at  the  Last
Supper. Jesus,  the  High  Priest  of  the  New Covenant,
addresses  it  to  his  Father  when  the  hour  of  his

sacrifice,  the  hour  of  his  “passing  over”  to  him  is
approaching.

SMILE

Waste Not…

The average cost of rehabilitating one seal

after the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska was

$80,000. At a special ceremony, two of the

most expensively saved animals were

released back into the wild, amid cheers and

applause from onlookers. One minute later, in

full view of everyone, a killer whale ate them

both.

TEACHER: Why are you late?

STUDENT: Class started before I got here.

----

TEACHER: Maria, go to the map and find

North America. MARIA: Here it is.

TEACHER: Correct. Now class, who

discovered America? CLASS: Maria.

----

TEACHER: Glenn, how do you spell

‘crocodile?' GLENN: K-R-O-K-O-D-I-A-L'

TEACHER: No, that's wrong.

GLENN: Maybe it is wrong, but you asked me

how I spell it.

----

TEACHER: Winnie, name one important thing

we have today that we didn't have ten years

ago.

WINNIE: Me!

----

TEACHER: Now, Simon, tell me frankly, do

you say prayers before eating?

SIMON: No sir, I don't have to, my Mom is a

good cook.

----

TEACHER: Clyde, your composition on 'My

Dog' is exactly the same as your brother's. Did

you copy his?

CLYDE: No, sir. It's the same dog.

FEASTS OF THE WEEK

Memorial:  ST  VINCENT  D’PAUL—Wed,  Sept  27:  The
deathbed  confession  of  a  dying  servant  opened Vincent  de
Paul’s eyes to the crying spiritual needs of the peasantry of
France. This seems to have been a crucial moment in the life
of the man from a small farm in Gascony, France, who had
become  a  priest  with  little  more  ambition  than  to  have  a
comfortable life.
The  Countess  de  Gondi–whose  servant  he  had  helped–
persuaded  her  husband  to  endow  and  support  a  group  of
able and zealous missionaries who would work among poor
tenant  farmers  and  country  people  in  general. Vincent  was
too  humble  to  accept  leadership  at  first,  but  after  working
for  some  time  in  Paris  among  imprisoned  galley  slaves,  he
returned  to  be  the  leader  of  what  is  now  known  as  the
Congregation  of  the  Mission,  or  the  Vincentians.  These
priests,  with  vows  of  poverty,  chastity,  obedience,  and
stability, were to devote themselves entirely to the people in
smaller towns and villages.

Later, Vincent  established  confraternities  of  charity  for  the
spiritual  and  physical  relief  of  the  poor  and  sick  of  each
parish. From these, with the help of Saint Louise de Marillac,
came  the  Daughters  of  Charity,  “whose  convent  is  the
sickroom, whose chapel is the parish church, whose cloister
is  the  streets  of  the

city.”  He  organized

the  rich  women  of

Paris  to  collect

f u n d s  f o r  h i s

m i s s i o n a r y

projects,  founded

several  hospitals,

collected relief funds

for  the  victims  of

war,  and  ransomed

over  1,200  galley

slaves  from  North

Africa.  He  was

z e a l o u s

i n

conducting retreats

for  clergy  at  a  time

when  there  was

great laxity, abuse, and

ignorance  among

them.  He  was  a  pioneer  in  clerical  training  and  was
instrumental in establishing seminaries.
Most  remarkably,  Vincent  was  by  temperament  a  very
irascible  person—even  his  friends  admitted  it.  He  said  that
except for the grace of God he would have been “hard and
repulsive,  rough  and  cross.”  But  he  became  a  tender  and
affectionate man, very sensitive to the needs of others.

Pope Leo XIII made him the patron of all charitable societies.
Outstanding  among  these,  of  course,  is  the  Society  of  St.
Vincent  de  Paul,  founded  in  1833  by  his  admirer  Blessed
Frédéric Ozanam.
Reflection The Church is for all God’s children, rich and poor,
peasants and scholars, the sophisticated and the simple. But
obviously  the  greatest  concern  of  the  Church  must  be  for
those  who  need  the  most  help—those  made  helpless  by
sickness, poverty, ignorance, or cruelty. Vincent de Paul is a
particularly appropriate patron for all Christians today, when
hunger has become starvation, and the high living of the rich
stands in more and more glaring contrast to the physical and
moral  degradation  in  which  many  of  God’s  children  are
forced to live.

Feast:  ST  MICHAEL,  ST  GABRIEL.  ST  RAPHAEL,
ARCHANGELS
—Fri, Sep  29:  
Angels—messengers  from God
—appear  frequently  in  Scripture,  but  only  Michael,  Gabriel
and Raphael are named.

Michael appears in Daniel’s vision as “the great prince” who
defends Israel against its enemies; in the Book of Revelation,
h e  l e a d s  G o d ’ s

armies to final victory

over  the  forces  of

evil.  Devotion  to

M i c h a e l  i s  t h e

o l d e s t  a n g e l i c

devotion,  rising  in

the East in the fourth

century. The Church

in the West began to

observe  a  feast

honouring  Michael

and  the  angels  in

the fifth century.

Gabriel  also  makes

an  appearance  in

Daniel’s visions, announcing Michael’s role in God’s plan. His
best-known appearance is an encounter with a young Jewish
girl named Mary, who consents to bear the Messiah.
Raphael’s activity is confined to the Old Testament story of
Tobit. There he appears to guide Tobit’s son Tobiah through a
series  of  fantastic  adventures  which  lead  to  a  threefold
happy  ending:  Tobiah’s  marriage  to  Sarah,  the  healing  of
Tobit’s blindness, and the restoration of the family fortune.
The  memorials  of  Gabriel  and  Raphael  were  added  to  the
Roman  calendar  in  1921. The  1970  revision  of  the  calendar
joined their individual feasts to Michael’s.

Reflection  Each  of  the  archangels  performs  a  different
mission  in  Scripture:  Michael  protects;  Gabriel  announces;
Raphael  guides.  Earlier  belief  that  inexplicable  events  were
due  to  the  actions  of  spiritual  beings  has  given  way  to  a
scientific  world-view  and  a  different  sense  of  cause  and
effect.  Yet  believers  still  experience  God’s  protection,
communication,  and  guidance  in  ways  which  defy
description. We cannot dismiss angels too lightly.

T h i s  S u n d a y ’s  Re a d i n g s :  I s a i a h  5 5 : 6 - 9 ;
Psalm145:2-3,  8-9,  17-18;  Philippians  1:20-24,  27;
Matthew 20:1-16

The house of Israel is the vine of God – who planted
and watered it, preparing the Israelites to bear fruits
of righteousness (see Isaiah 5:7; 27:2-5).

Israel failed to yield good fruits and the Lord allowed
His  vineyard,  Israel’s  kingdom,  to  be  overrun  by
conquerors

(Ps80:9-20)

. But God promised that one day

He would replant His vineyard and its shoots would
blossom to the ends of the earth

( Am 9:15; Hos 14:5-10).

This  is  the  biblical  backdrop  to  Jesus’  parable  of
salvation history in today’s Gospel. The landowner is
God. The vineyard is the kingdom. The workers hired
at dawn are the Israelites, to whom He first offered
His  covenant.  Those  hired  later  in  the  day  are  the
Gentiles, the non-Israelites, who, until the coming of
Christ,  were  strangers  to  the  covenants  of  promise

(see  Ephesians  2:11-13)

.  In  the  Lord’s  great  generosity,  the

same  wages,  the  same  blessings  promised  to  the
first-called, the Israelites, will be paid to those called
last, the rest of the nations.

This provokes grumbling in today’s parable. Doesn’t
the complaint of those first labourers sound like that
of the older brother in Jesus’ prodigal son parable

(see

Luke  15:29-30)

?  God’s  ways,  however,  are  far  from  our

ways,  as  we  hear  in  today’s  First  Reading.  And
today’s  readings  should  caution  us  against  the
temptation to resent God’s lavish mercy.

Like the Gentiles, many will be allowed to enter the
kingdom late – after having spent most of their days
idling in sin.

But even these can call upon Him and find Him near,
as  we  sing  in  today’s  Pslam. We  should  rejoice  that
God  has  compassion  on  all  whom  He  has  created.
This  should  console  us,  too,  especially  if  we  have
loved ones who remain far from the vineyard.

Our task is to continue labouring in His vineyard. As
Paul says in today’s Epistle, let us conduct ourselves
worthily,  struggling  to  bring  all  men  and  women  to
the praise of His name.

CATHOLIC ANSWERS

www.catholic.com

MEDJUGORJE FROM THE PULPIT

Question
Is it permissible for a priest quote in his Sunday homily
what  the  Virgin  Mary  has  said  according  to  a  seer  at
Medjugorje?
Answer
It  depends  on  the  context.  If  the  priest  was  insisting
that  what  the Virgin  Mary  said  in  that  context  was  to
believed by the faithful, then he would be in the wrong.
If  the  priest  was  simply  using  a  story  to  illustrate  a
larger  point,  it  would  probably  be  okay,  even  if  a  bit
problematic.The reason it would be problematic is that
the  Church  has  not  formally  approved  the  alleged
apparitions in Medjugorje—indeed, the local bishop has
declared  not  of  supernatural  nature—so  using  it  to
illustrate the Faith is not the best choice.

MAY WE HATE SATAN AND THOSE WHO DO HIS

WORK?

Question
Are we as Catholics allowed to hate the devil? And, if so,
are we allowed to hate those that are doing the devil's
work?
Answer
To hate means to will evil for another person. But to will
evil  for  another  person  is  directly  contrary  to  charity.
Since  we're  called  to  be  charitable,  it  follows  that  we
can never hate any person, including the devil. Just as
God  does  not  wish  that  any  should  perish  (2  Pet.  3:9),
we  too  cannot  desire  or  rejoice  in  the  eternal
destruction of any intelligent being.
However,  this  doesn't  mean  we  can't  hate  the  devil's
actions. As St. Paul writes, "Hate what is evil, hold fast
to what is good" (Rom. 12:9).

LOOK AT YOUR WIFE, NOT AT PICTURES OF OTHER

WOMEN

Question
Is  looking  at  pictures  of  lingerie  and  sexy  clothing  to
enhance your marriage a sin?
Answer
Simply  put,  don't  do  it. Viewing  and  appreciating  your
wife  as  a  whole  person—not  as  an  object—while  she  is
wearing  such  garments  is  certainly  fine.  But  viewing
images of other women in such clothing is disrespectful
to your wife and harmful to your well-being. It will only
foster the sin of lust and thus undermine your marriage.
As a good alternative, cultivate the virtue of chastity and
thus a greater respect for your wife (CCC 2331ff.).

SJ23 Youth Ministry

serves the youth in our

community seeking to

bring youth closer to

Christ; to know, love and

serve Him more through

our ministry. We gather
each Friday night in the

Parish Hall from

6:00-8:00pm and

encourage youth from

the community to join us

each Friday night, don’t

forget to bring a friend!

We hope to build and

strengthen our

relationship with God, to
learn about our faith and

create friendships with

fellow brothers and

sisters in Christ.

The vision for our

ministry is: Hearts on fire

for the Lord.

Commitment to the

weekly ministry.

Desire to learn, serve

and grow.

Learn, pray and play as a
community of believers.

Grow in our

understanding of our

faith and Jesus.

Outreach to those who

need help.

Build a sense of

mentorship amongst
different age groups.

Create friendships based

on Christ.

SJ23 Youth Ministry

meeting night sessions

alternate in a three-week

cycle. We have a

teaching activity with a

lesson based on the

series that we are

studying. Followed by a

social activity, which can

include anything from
game nights, cooking,

movie nights to outings.

Lastly, a service activity,

which supports the local

and greater community

and can range from

helping around the

church, to local food

banks, pen pals with the

sick or imprisoned, and

having fundraising

events to assist those in

need. We also have

dinner and snacks

together each time we

gather!

MORE GOOD NEWS

Catholic Women’s League (CWL)

& K of C of St JXXIII

The Catholic Women’s League of JXXIII & the

Knights of Columbus are donating a new floor for

our Hall this summer.

Also, CWL have kindly accepted to research the
possibility of federal financing for a wheel-chair

lift that can be installed on the staircase leading

down to the hall. This is a program offered to
charitable institutions for disability access to

buildings.
