CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

Part One—The Profession of Faith

“I BELIEVE IN LIFE EVERLASTING”

207. What is life everlasting?

Eternal  life  is  that  life  which  begins  immediately
after  death.  It  wil   have  no  end.  It  wil   be  preceded
for  each  person  by  a  particular  judgment  at  the
hands of Christ who is the Judge of the living and the
dead. This particular judgement wil  be confirmed in
the final judgment.

208. What is the particular judgment?

It  is  the  judgment  of  immediate  retribution  which
each  one  after  death  wil   receive  from  God  in  his
immortal soul in accord with his faith and his works.
This  retribution  consists  in  entrance  into  the
happiness  of  heaven,  immediately  or  after  an
appropriate  purification,  or  entry  into  the  eternal
damnation of hell.

209. What is meant by the term “heaven”?

By  “heaven”  is  meant  the  state  of  supreme  and
definitive  happiness. Those  who  die  in  the  grace  of
God  and  have  no  need  of  further  purification  are
gathered around Jesus and Mary, the angels and the
saints. They thus form the Church of heaven, where
they  see  God  “face  to  face”  (1  Corinthians  13:12).
They  live  in  a  communion  of  love  with  the  Most
Blessed Trinity and they intercede for us.

“True  and  subsistent  life  consists  in  this:  the
Father, through the Son and in the Holy Spirit,
pouring  out  his  heavenly  gifts  on  al   things
without exception. Thanks to his mercy, we too,
men that we are, have received the inalienable
promise of eternal life.” (Saint Cyril of Jerusalem)

210. What is purgatory?

Purgatory  is  the  state  of  those  who  die  in  God’s
friendship, guaranteed of their eternal salvation, but
who stil  have need of purification to enter into the
happiness of heaven.

211. How can we help the souls being purified in

purgatory?

Because  of  the  communion  of  saints,  the  faithful
who  are  stil   pilgrims  on  earth  are  able  to  help  the
souls in purgatory by offering prayers in suffering for
them,  especial y  the  Eucharistic  sacrifice. They  also
help them by almsgiving, indulgences, and works of
penance.

2 OF 4 APOSTOLATES OF ST JOHN XXIII PARISH

HIGHLIGHTED IN THIS WEEKEND’S BULLETIN

ADORATION OF THE BLESSED 

SACRAMENT 

Contact—Nelia Alzate: 416 425-4569

If you would like to be on the schedule for Adoration on 

Fridays please call Nelia.

Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament takes place 

on Fridays from 9AM-5:40PM; Evening Prayer from the 

Liturgy of the Hours & Benediction—5:40PM.

 

What is Eucharistic Adoration?

 Understood simply, Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or 

honouring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. In a deeper 

sense, it involves "the contemplation of the Mystery of 

Christ truly present before us".

 

During Eucharistic Adoration, we "watch and wait", we 

remain "silent" in His Presence and open ourselves to His 

Graces which flow from the Eucharist ... By worshiping 

the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to 

be! Like a magnet, The Lord draws us to Himself and 

gently transforms us. In its fullest essence ... Eucharistic 

Adoration is "God and Man reaching out for each other, 

at the same time!"

 

The Eucharist is: Jesus truly present - Body, Blood, Soul, 

and Divinity!

At the moment of Consecration, during the Mass, the 

"gifts" of bread and wine are transformed 

(transubstantiated) into the actual Body and Blood of 

Christ, at the Altar. This means that they are not only 

spiritually transformed, but rather are actually 

(substantially) transformed into the Body and Blood of 

Christ. The elements retain the appearance of bread and 

wine, but are indeed the actual Body and Blood of Christ. 

This is what is meant by Real Presence: the actual, 

physical presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. Christ 

instituted this Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist in order 

to remain with mankind until the end of time (Jn. 14:18).

SAINT OF THE WEEK

Optional Memorial: St Romuald, Abbot—Monday, June 19:
In the midst of a wasted youth, Romuald (c. 950 – June 19,
1027)  watched  his  father  kil   a  relative  in  a  duel  over
property.  In  horror  he  fled  to  a  monastery  near  Ravenna.
After  three  years,  some  of  the  monks  found  him  to  be
uncomfortably holy and eased him out.

Romuald  spent  the  next  30  years  going  about  Italy,
founding  monasteries  and  hermitages.  He  longed  to  give
his  life  to  Christ  in  martyrdom,  and  got  the  pope’s
permission  to  preach  the  gospel  in  Hungary.  But  he  was
struck  with  il ness  as  soon  as  he  arrived,  and  the  il ness
recurred as often as he tried to proceed.

During  another  period  of  his  life,  Romuald  suffered  great
spiritual  dryness. One  day  as  he  was  praying  Psalm  31  (“I
wil  give you understanding and I wil  instruct you”), he was
given an extraordinary light and spirit which never left him.
At  the  next  monastery  where  he  stayed,  Romuald  was
accused  of  a  scandalous  crime  by  a  young  nobleman  he
had  rebuked  for  a  dissolute  life.  Amazingly,  his  fel ow
monks  believed  the  accusation.  He  was  given  a  severe
penance,  forbidden  from  offering  Mass,  and
excommunicated—an  unjust  sentence  that  he  endured  in
silence for six months.

The  most  famous  of  the  monasteries  Romuald  founded
was  that  of  the  Camaldoli  in  Tuscany.  Here  began  the
Order  of  the  Camaldolese  Benedictines,  uniting  the
monastic and eremetical lives. In later life Romuald’s own
father became a monk, wavered, and was kept faithful by
the encouragement of his son.

Reflection: Christ is a gentle leader, but he cal s us to total
holiness. Now and then, men and women are raised up to
chal enge  us  by  the  absoluteness  of  their  dedication,  the
vigour of their spirit, the depth of their conversion. The fact
that  we  cannot  duplicate  their  lives  does  not  change  the
cal   to  us  to  be  total y  open  to God  in  our  own  particular
circumstances.

                                                                               !6

This  Sunday’s  Readings:  Ezekiel  17:22-24;  Psalm

92:2-3, 13-14, 15-16; 2 Corinthians 5:6-10; Mark 4:26-34

In  the  cryptic  message  of  the  prophet  Ezekiel,  long
centuries  before  the  Lord’s  coming, God  gave  His  people
reason to hope. Ezekiel glimpsed a day when the Lord God
would  place  a  tree  on  a  mountain  in  Israel,  a  tree  that
would “put forth branches and bear fruit.” Who could have
predicted  that  the  tree  would  be  a  cross  on  the  hil   of
Calvary, and that the fruit would be salvation?

Ezekiel  foresees  salvation  coming  to  “birds  of  every
kind”—thus, not just to the People of Israel, but also to the
Gentiles,  who  wil   “take  wing”  through  their  new  life  in
Christ.  God  indeed  wil   “lift  high  the  lowly  tree,”  as  He
solemnly promises.

Such  salvation  surpasses  humanity’s  most  ambitious
dreams.  And  so  we  express  our  gratitude  in  the  Psalm:
“Lord, it is good to give thanks to you.” It is indeed good,
and  better  stil   to  give  thanks  with  praise.  The  Psalmist
speaks of those who are just upon the earth, but looks to
God  as  the  source  and  measure  of  justice,  of
righteousness.  Like  Ezekiel,  he  evokes  the  image  of  a

flourishing tree to describe the lives of the just. The image,
again, suggests the Cross as the measure of righteousness.
The  Cross  is  a  sign  of  contradiction  to  those  who  would
rather “flourish” in worldly terms. As St. Paul emphasizes
to  the Corinthians,  we  need  courage. Our  faith  makes  us
strong, and it is proved in our deeds. He reminds us that we
wil   be  judged  by  the  ways  our  faith  manifests  itself  in
works:  “so  that  each  may  receive  recompense,  according
to what he did in the body, whether good or evil.”

God Himself wil  empower the works He expects from us,
though we freely choose to correspond to His grace. In the
prophetic  oracles,  He  scattered  the  seed  that  sprang  up
and  became  the  mustard  tree,  large  enough  to
accommodate  al   the  birds  of  the  sky,  just  as  Ezekiel  had
seen.  He  gave  this  doctrine  to  His  disciples  in  terms  they
were  able  to  understand,  and  He  provided  a  full
explanation. In the sacraments He provides stil  more: the
grace of faith and the courage we need to live in the world
as children of God.

CATHOLIC ANSWERS

www.catholic.com

IS IT PERMISSIBLE TO KISS THE HOST?

Question
Is  it  permissible  to  kiss  the  eucharistic  host  prior  to
consumption?  I  was  admonished  by  a  deacon  for
doing so.
Answer
Because Mass is the public liturgy of the Church and
not  a  private  devotion,  the  Church  instructs  us  on
what to do and when to do it. Nowhere in the rubrics
of  the  Mass  is  anyone  directed  to  kiss  the
consecrated host. The proper act of adoring the host
during  Communion  is  to  bow  prior  to  reception
(GIRM 160).
The  Church  does  permit  some  leeway  for  local
customs, but those occasions are explicitly permitted
in  Church  documents,  and  this  is  not  one  of  those
situations. At Mass, we gather in unity as the Body of
Christ, and when each person starts doing his or her
own  thing  at  Mass,  the  visible  symbol  of  our  union
can easily get lost.
That being said, I commend you for your love of the
Lord  in  the  most  blessed  sacrament  of  the
Eucharist. I believe that your actions were done out
of  love,  faith,  and  devotion  to  the  Lord.  I  hope  the
deacon  charitably  and  gently  explained  your
innocent mistake.

WHO WROTE THE NEW TESTAMENT?

Question
Who wrote the New Testament?
Answer
As with the Old Testament, God is the primary author
of the New Testament, and there are various human

3 OF 4 APOSTOLATES OF ST JOHN XXIII PARISH

HIGHLIGHTED IN THIS WEEKEND’S BULLETIN

ICON OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA 

GROUPS

Co-ordinator— Beth Abordo: 416-467-6492
Apostolate of the Shrine

: What is it? The goal of the 

apostolate of the Shrine is to adequately respond to the 

insistent call of St Pope John Paul II by cooperating with 

bishops and priests in the effort for a new evangelization, 

particularly so that lapsed Catholics may once again 

become involved in the ecclesial life of their parishes. This 

work not only seeks to benefit individuals but also 

entire families. It is a worldwide initiative of Heralds of 

the Gospel, a Private International Association of the 

Christ’s Faithful of Pontifical Right.

Mainly it involves forming groups of thirty families in 

which a shrine of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, as She 

appeared at Fatima in Portugal, travels from home to 

home on pilgrimage.  

Families receive the shrine in their home once a month on 

a day determined in agreement with the coordinator. On 

the appointed day, each respective family invites friends, 

relatives, neighbours to read a passage from the Gospel 

together, followed by a few minutes of reflection, recite 

the rosary and make an act of consecration of the family 

to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

St John XXIII Parish has 4 Icons of Our Lady of Fatima 

travelling to homes in each group every day of the month 

for a total of 120 homes in the parish.

Please call co-ordinator to become a family that receives 

the Icon

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.
