Living the Gospel by

helping newcomers to

Canada

Angie moved to Canada to marry

a man she met online. He was not

who he seemed; she endured

emotional and physical abuse.

While he was at work, she started

attending language classes at

Catholic Crosscultural Services.

Staf at CCS connected her with a

settlement worker in the women’s

program. Angie received the

support she needed to exit her

violent relationship and live

independently, free from abuse.

Angie is one of over 3,000 clients

helped annual y by CCS programs

funded by ShareLife.

May 27 is the next ShareLife

Sunday. Please give generously.

CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

Part One—The Profession of Faith

“I BELIEVE IN THE HOLY CATHOLIC CHURCH”

The Church in the Plan of God

147. What does the word Church mean?

The  word  Church  refers  to  the  people  whom  God
cal s  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.

148. Are there other names and images with

which the Bible speaks about the Church?

In Sacred Scripture we find many images which bring
out  various  complementary  aspects  of  the  mystery
of  the  Church.  The  Old  Testament  favours  those
images  that  are  bound  to  the  people  of  God.  The
New  Testament  offers  images  that  are  linked  to
Christ as the Head of this people which is his Body.
Other  images  are  drawn  from  pastoral  life
(sheepfold,  flock,  sheep),  from  agriculture  (field,
olive  grove,  vineyard),  from  construction  (dwel ing
place,  stone,  temple),  and  from  family  life  (spouse,
mother, family).

149. What is the origin and the fulfillment of the

Church?

The  Church  finds  her  origin  and  fulfil ment  in  the
eternal plan of God. She was prepared for in the Old
Covenant with the election of Israel, the sign of the
future  gathering  of  al   the  nations.  Founded  by  the
words  and  actions  of  Jesus  Christ,  fulfil ed  by  his
redeeming  death  and  Resurrection,  the Church  has
been manifested as the mystery of salvation by the
outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. She wil 
be perfected in the glory of heaven as the assembly
of al  the redeemed of the earth.

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 al  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  al   of
humanity  with  God  and  of  the  unity  of  the  entire
human race.

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us

bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.

You know what they say about Chicago. If you don't like

SAINT OF THE WEEK

Memorial:  St  Marie  De  L’  Incarnation,  Religious
Monday, April 30
: Daughter of a baker, she was raised in
a  family  of  craftsmen  and  tradesmen,  and  was  related
on  her  mother‘s  side  to  the  noble  Barbon  de  la
Bourdaisière  family.  A  pious  and  sometimes  mystical
child,  she  would  memorize  and  recite  homilies,  and
early wanted to become a nun. Against her wishes, she
entered an arranged marriage with Claude Martin, a silk
manufacturer,  at  age  seventeen,  and  was  soon  the
mother  of  one  son.  Widowed  after  two  years  of
marriage, she moved back with her family, and refused
to discuss re-marriage. Worked as an embroiderer.

On 25 March 1620 she experienced a vision in which she
was  shown  al   her  faults  and  human  frailties,  then  was
immersed  in  Christ’s  blood.  This  event  changed  her
completely, and her desire to be involved in religious life
translated to prayer, liturgical devotion, and charity.

Final y  leaving  her  father‘s  house,  Marie  worked  as  a
bookkeeper  in  her  brother-in-law’s  shipping  company.
Having  a  gift  for  administration,  Marie  was  soon  the
company  manager.  However,  the  drive  to  the  religious
life  never  ended,  and  in  January  1631  she  asked  her
sister  to  care  for  her  son  Claude,  and  then  joined  the
Ursulines  at Tours,  France  on  25  January  1631.  Claude
gathered  a  group  of  his  friends,  al   12  or  13  years  old,
and tried to storm the convent to “free” his mother, but
they  were  unable  to  gain  entry. This  incident  has  been
often  cited  by  her  detractors  as  indicative  of  a  serious
flaw  in  Marie,  and  even  she  did  not  whol y  understand
why she did what she did. She later explained, however,
that she was fol owing God‘s wil , and Claude apparently
came to understand it – he became a Benedictine priest
in 1641, the assistant to his Order‘s superior general, and
his mother‘s biographer.

Marie  took  her  final  vows  in  1633  as  Marie  de
l’Incarnation. Assistant mistress of novices for the Order
in Tours.  Doctrinal  instructor. After  a  few  years  of  this
work, Marie received another vision that would change
her  life. This  time  it  was  a  huge  country  of  mountains
and  forests,  and  the  message  that  it  was Canada,  and
that she must go there to build a house for Christ. She
worked  for  years  to  col ect  the  money  and  support  for
her mission, and in 3 April 1639 she sailed from Dieppe
with  Marie-Madeleine  de  la  Peltrie,  one  of  her  primary
supporters.

She landed in New France on 4 July 1639, and arrived in
the  future Québec, Canada  on  1 August  1639. She  was
the first superior of the Ursulines in Canada. Worked as a
missionary  to  the  Natives  and  other  residents  in  the
area. Studied  the  local  languages  with  the Jesuits  who
were already in the area; she became so proficient that
she  later  wrote  Algonquin,  Iroquois,  Montagnais,  and
Ouendat dictionaries, and a catechism in Iroquois.

She laid the first stone of the convent in 1641, and took
it  over  in  1642.  It  formed  the  base  for  her  work,  and
when it burned on 29 December 1650, she supervised its
reconstruction,  finishing  construction  on  29  May  1651.
Ever strong-wil ed, she opposed bishop Blessed Francis
de Montmorency Laval‘s attempt to control the Quebec
Ursulines.  A  prolific  correspondent,  over  12,000  of  her
letters have survived.

This Sunday’s Readings: Acts 9:26–31; Ps 22:26–28,
30–32; 1 Jn 3:18–24; Jn 15:1–8

In  today’s Gospel,  Jesus  tel s  us  that  He  is  the  true
vine  that  God  intended  Israel  to  be—the  source  of
divine  life  and  wisdom  for  the  nations  (see  Sirach
24:17–24).

In baptism, each of us was joined to Him by the Holy
Spirit. As a branch grows from a tree, our souls are to
draw  life  from  Him,  nourished  by  His  word  and  the
Eucharist.

Paul in today’s First Reading seeks to be grafted onto
the  visible  expression  of  Christ  the  true  vine—His
Church. Once the chief persecutor of the Church, he
encounters initial resistance and suspicion. But he is
known  by  his  fruits,  by  his  powerful  witness  to  the
Lord working in his life (see Matthew 7:16–20).

We too are commanded today to bear good fruits as
His disciples, so that our lives give glory to God. Like
Paul’s  life,  our  lives  must  bear  witness  to  His
goodness.

Jesus  cautions  us,  however,  that  if  we’re  bearing
fruit,  we  can  expect  that God  wil   “prune”  us—as  a
gardener  trims  and  cuts  back  a  plant  so  that  it  wil 
grow  stronger  and  bear  even  more  fruit.  He  is
teaching us today how to look at our sufferings and
trials  with  the  eyes  of  faith.  We  need  to  see  our
struggles  as  pruning,  by  which  we  are  being
disciplined  and  trained  so  that  we  can  grow  in
holiness  and  bear  fruits  of  righteousness  (see
Hebrews 12:4–11).

We need to always remain rooted in Him, as today’s
Epistle  tel s  us.  We  remain  in  Him  by  keeping  His
commandment  of  love,  by  pondering  His  words,
letting them dwel  richly in us (see Colossians 3:16),
and  by  always  seeking  to  do  what  pleases  Him.  In
everything  we  must  be  guided  by  humility,
remembering  that  apart  from  Him  we  can  do
nothing.

As we sing in today’s Psalm, we must fulfil  our vows,
turning  to  the  Lord  in  worship,  proclaiming  his
praises,  until  al   families  come  to  know  His
justice in their lives.

My Father Is Glorified By This, That You Bear Much

Fruit And Become My Disciples

CATHOLIC ANSWERS

www.catholic.com

HOW DO WE GET OUR MARRIAGE BLESSED?

Question
We are having our marriage blessed in the Church. What al 
is involved?
Answer
Presuming that neither of you had a previous marriage, the
validation  of  your  marriage  is  a  pretty  straightforward
process. You  both  need  to  provide  your  updated  (current
years date on it) record of baptism. You would also need to
provide  a  copy  of  your  civil  marriage.  Once  the  priest  is
satisfied  that  you  intend  to  enter  into  the  Catholic
understanding  of  marriage,  you  would  simply  exchange
your vows in a brief ceremony.

WHY CAN'T NON-CATHOLICS RECEIVE COMMUNION?

Question
How  would  I  explain  to  a  non-Catholic  that  her  not  being
al owed  to  receive  the  Eucharist  is  not  the  Church  being
exclusive?
Answer
There are two main reasons non-Catholics cannot receive
communion at a Catholic Mass:
1

The  Eucharist  is  the  body,  blood,  soul,  and

divinity  of  Jesus Christ. We  must  be  properly  prepared  to
receive  it  (1  Cor.  11:26-29). A  non-Catholic  who  does  not
believe  in  the  Real  Presence  would  not  be  properly
prepared to receive the Eucharist.
2

Notice the word communion. You are asking why

those who are not in communion with the Church cannot
receive  Communion.  The  word  implies  a  unity  and  a
oneness. Because Catholics believe that the celebration of
the Eucharist is a sign of the reality of the oneness of faith,
life,  and  worship,  members  of  faith  communities  with
whom we are not yet ful y united are not admitted to Holy
Communion.

WHY PRAY FOR SOMEONE IN NEED?

Question
What is the purpose of praying for someone in need? Wil 
God  only  attend  to  the  needs  of  those  who  have  people
praying  for  them?  If  so,  doesn't  that  seem  like  a
competition, in a sense, to see how many friends a person
has who are wil ing to pray for him?
Answer
The purpose of praying for another is that the love of God
and  neighbour,  which  is  the  life  of  the  Church,  is  shared
more powerful y when we bear each other's burdens. God
wants us to have concern for our brothers and sisters in the
faith,  so  he  encourages  us  to  pray  for  others  in  order  to
perfect our charity, not in order to have winners and losers
in a prayer competition! Christ even teaches us to pray for
our enemies and our persecutors, so even to pray for those
who do not want our prayers.

LENT IS HERE!!!

When Is Ash Wednesday?—February 14

What is Ash Wednesday?

This day marks the beginning of Lent. We

attend Mass on this day and receive the

Ashes on the forehead as a sign of sorrow

for sin and as sign of our intention to

become more faithful.

What is Lent?

The penitential season of the Church’s

year. It is 40 days of preparation to renew

our Baptismal vows on Easter Sunday.

During this time we seek closer union with

the Lord through an increase of fasting,

prayer, and giving of alms (charitable

giving).

Lenten Fast & Abstinence

Catholics are obligated to Fast & Abstain

from meat on Ash Wednesday & Good

Friday.

The Fast on Ash Wednesday and Good

Friday.

The fast on Ash Wed and Good Friday

involves eating only one ful  meal. One or
two smal er meals may be taken on those
days, but may not total one full meal.  No

eating between meals.

Abstinence on Ash Wednesday and Good

Friday

Abstinence on these days from meat can

include eggs or dairy products.

Age Requirements

"Al  Catholics at 15 are bound by the law of
abstinence; al  adults are bound by the law

of fast up to the beginning of their 60

year.

Fridays of the Year

It is a requirement of our Faith that we

abstain from meat on al  the Fridays of the
year (except Feasts) in commemoration of

our Saviour’s death.
