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

I BELIEVE IN THE COMMUNION OF SAINTS

194. What is the meaning of the “communion of

saints”?

This  expression  indicates  first  of  al   the  common
sharing  of  al   the  members  of  the  Church  in  holy
things (sancta): the faith, the sacraments, especial y
the  Eucharist,  the  charisms,  and  the  other  spiritual
gifts.  At  the  root  of  this  communion  is  love  which
“does not seek its own interests” (1 Corinthians 13:5)
but  leads  the  faithful  to  “hold  everything  in
common”  (Acts  4:32),  even  to  put  one’s  own
material goods at the service of the most poor.

195. What else does “the communion of saints”

mean?

This  expression  also  refers  to  the  communion
between  holy  persons  (sancti);  that  is,  between
those who by grace are united to the dead and risen
Christ.  Some  are  pilgrims  on  the  earth;  others,
having  passed  from  this  life,  are  undergoing
purification  and  are  helped  also  by  our  prayers.
Others already enjoy the glory of God and intercede
for  us.  Al   of  these  together  form  in  Christ  one
family,  the  Church,  to  the  praise  and  glory  of  the
Trinity.
Mary, Mother of Christ, Mother of the Church

196. In what sense is the Blessed Virgin Mary the

Mother of the Church?

The Blessed Virgin Mary is the Mother of the Church
in the order of grace because she gave birth to Jesus,
the Son  of God,  the  Head  of  the  body  which  is  the
Church. When he was dying on the cross Jesus gave
his  mother  to  his  disciple  with  the  words,  “Behold
your mother” (John 19:27).

197. How does the Virgin Mary help the Church?

After  the  Ascension  of  her  Son,  the  Virgin  Mary
aided the beginnings of the Church with her prayers.
Even  after  her  Assumption  into  heaven,  she
continues  to  intercede  for  her  children,  to  be  a
model  of  faith  and  charity  for  al ,  and  to  exercise

over  them  a  salutary  influence  deriving  from  the
superabundant  merits  of  Christ. The  faithful  see  in
Mary  an  image  and  an  anticipation  of  the
resurrection that awaits them and they invoke her as
advocate, helper, benefactress and mediatrix.

198. What kind of devotion is directed to the holy

Virgin?

It  is  a  singular  kind  of  devotion  which  differs
essential y  from  the  cult  of  adoration  given  only  to
the  Most  Holy  Trinity.  This  special  veneration
directed  to  Mary  finds  particular  expression  in  the
liturgical feasts dedicated to the Mother of God and
in Marian prayers such as the holy Rosary which is a
compendium of the whole Gospel.

199. In what way is the Blessed Virgin Mary the

eschatological icon of the Church?

Looking  upon  Mary,  who  is  completely  holy  and
already  glorified  in  body  and  soul,  the  Church
contemplates in her what she herself is cal ed to be
on  earth  and  what  she  wil   be  in  the  homeland  of
heaven.

SMILE

The humour of St John Paul II

“Stupidity is also a gift of God,

but one mustn't misuse it.”

“Love is never defeated, and I could add, the history of

Ireland proves it.”

An American bishop, recal ing John Paul’s amazing

memory for names and faces, told of returning to Rome

after having put on weight since his previous visit. “Is

your diocese growing?” the pope inquired. The hefty

prelate assured him that it was indeed expanding. “So is

the bishop,” said John Paul with a twinkle in his eye.

“People are like wine-some turn to vinegar, but the best

improve with age.”

PRAY FOR THE JUNE MISSION INTENTION


That Church may work towards that inclusiveness which

respects other for their differences.

Watch Life For Life: Maximilium Kolbe

Auschwitz, 1941. One of the prisoners, Jan, escapes from
the German concentration camp while working at a gravel
pit. Thanks  to  the  help  of  kind-hearted  people,  he  finds
shelter.  There  Jan  hears  tragic  news  about  ten  random
inmates sentenced by the Nazis to death by starvation as a
punishment for his escape. One among the convicts is Fr.
Maximil ian Kolbe, a Franciscan priest who volunteered to
die in place of one of the inmates.

Now Jan is not just fleeing the Nazis, but also from his guilt
for  his  involvement  in  Kolbe's  death.  He  goes  to  visit
Niepokalanów,  a  very  large  Franciscan  monastery,  where
Fr.  Kolbe  had  been  the  founder  and  superior.  There  Jan
wants to learn what were the motives behind his decision
to  die  for  another  prisoner,  a  complete  stranger. Though
free from Auschwitz, Jan wil  continue to be confronted by
the life and death of Maximilian Kolbe wherever he goes.

In addition to Jan—torn between wanting to forget and a
fascination  with  Kolbe—another  key  character  emerges,
Brother  Anselm.  He  is  a  devout  young  Franciscan  priest
who quietly but strongly witnesses to Kolbe's heroic faith
and love, and then rejoices at the beatification of Kolbe by
Pope  Paul VI.  Later  Kolbe  wil   be  canonized  by  his  fel ow
countryman, Pope St. John Paul II, who proclaimed Kolbe
as the "patron saint of the difficult 20th century."
Run Time: 1 hr. 31 mins.

CELEBRATIONS OF THE WEEK

Solemnity: The Most Sacred of Jesus—Friday, June 8: The Feast
of The  Most  Sacred  Heart  of  Jesus  is  one  of  the  most  widely
practiced  and  wel -known  devotions  in  the  Roman  Catholic
Church. It takes the physical heart of Jesus as representation of
His Divine love for humanity. The Feast of the Sacred Heart has
been in the Roman Catholic Liturgical calendar since 1856, and
is always celebrated 19 days after Pentecost Sunday. It always
fal s on a Friday. The devotion especial y emphasizes the total
love,  compassion,  and  long-suffering  of  the  heart  of  Christ
towards humanity.  
The  origin  of  the  devotion  to  the  Most  Sacred  Heart  in  the
modern  form,  comes  from  St.  Marguerite  Alacoque.  She
learned  the  devotion  from  Jesus  during  a  mystical
experience.  On  Dec  27,  1673,  Margaret  Mary  reported  that
Jesus permitted her to rest her head upon His heart, and then
disclosed  to  her  the  wonders  of  his  love,  tel ing  her  that  he
desired to make them known to al  mankind and to diffuse the
treasures of his goodness, and that he had chosen her for this
work. Jesus  asked  for  a  devotion  of  penitential  love,  frequent
reception of Holy Communion, especial y Holy Communion on
the First Fri of the month, and the Observance of Holy Hours.  

Pope  Pius XI  stated,  “The  spirit  of  expiation  or  reparation  has
always had the first and foremost place in the worship given to
the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus”.   The “Golden Arrow Prayer”
directly refers to the Sacred Heart.  

Memorial: The Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Saturday,  June  9
:  In  the  17th  century,  Saint  John  Eudes
promoted  devotion  to  the  hearts  of Jesus  and  Mary.  He  even
composed an Office and Mass in honour of the Heart of Mary. It
became a feast of the universal Church only in the 20th century
and is celebrated on the day after the feast of the Sacred Heart
of Jesus.

The New Testament mentions Mary’s heart only twice. Lk 2:19
says,  “Mary  kept  al   these  things,  reflecting  on  them  in  her
heart.” Lk 2:51 has a similar text.
Both  in Scripture  and  in  later  reflections  on  Mary’s  heart,  it  is
obvious  that  the  usage  is  symbolic. The  physical  heart  stands
for  the  inner  reaches  of  the  human  personality.  It  includes  or
connotes  the  mind,  the  soul,  the  wil ,  the  spirit,  the  core  of
one’s being. It is the place where a person thinks, remembers,
feels, desires, makes decisions.

Medieval  saints  such  as  Mechtild,  Gertrude(Nov16)  and
Bridget(July23)  promoted  devotion  to  the  heart  of  Mary.
Franciscan  and  Jesuit  theologians  made  their  contributions.
Saint Francis de Sales(Jan24) dedicated his Treatise on the Love of

God  to  Mary’s  heart.  But  it  was  Saint  John  Eudes  (Aug19)  who
wrote  extensively  about  this  theme.  He  says  that  the  divine
Word  printed  on  Mary’s  heart  a  perfect  likeness  of  the  divine
attributes and a share in the properties of each person of the
Trinity.
Perhaps this devotion came into its own in the 20th century. It
is a special theme of Fatima. In 1942, Pius XII consecrated the
world  to  the  Immaculate  Heart  of  Mary  and  established  this
feast for the universal Church.

Reflection—To  honour  Mary’s  heart  is  to  honour  her  total
dedication to God. As she pondered in her heart the mysteries
of  Jesus’  infancy  and  childhood  (Lk2:19,51),  she  must  have  done
the same for al  the mysteries of his life, death and resurrection.
This  feast  suggests  that  Mary  is  the  greatest  of  the  mystics—
total y  wrapped  up  in  God  and  committed  to  God’s  wil .  Her

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER FOR PRIESTS

Friday, June 8

Catholics worldwide are urged to pray for priests today on the
World Day of Prayer for Priests. The day was begun by Saint
Pope  John  Paul  II  in  2002  with  the  objective  of  having  al 
Catholic faithful join in prayer for the sanctification of priests.
It was the late pontiff’s desire that the World Day of Prayer for
Priests would coincide with the Feast of the Sacred Heart of
Jesus,  which  is  always  celebrated  on  the  tenth  Friday  after
Easter Sunday.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

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

                                                                               !6

This  Sunday’s  Readings:  Exodus  24:3-8;  Psalm

116:12-13, 15-18; Hebrews 9:11-15; Mark 14:12-16, 22-26

Al   of  today’s  readings  are  set  in  the  context  of  the
Passover. The First Reading recal s the old covenant
celebrated  at  Sinai  fol owing  the  first  Passover  and
the Exodus.

In  sprinkling  the  blood  of  the  covenant  on  the
Israelites, Moses was symbolizing God’s desire in this
covenant  to  make  them  His  family,  His  “blood”
relations.

Quoting  Moses’  words  in  today’s  Gospel,  Jesus
elevates and transforms this covenant symbol to an
extraordinary  reality.  In  the  new  covenant  made  in
the  blood  of  Christ,  we  truly  become  one  with  His
body and blood.

The  first  covenant  made  with  Moses  and  Israel  at
Sinai  was  but  a  shadow  of  this  new  and  greater
covenant made by Christ with al  humankind in that
upper room (see Hebrews 10:1).

The  Passover  that  Jesus  celebrates  with  His  twelve
apostles “actualizes,” makes real, what could only be

symbolized  by  Moses’  sacrifice  at  the  altar  with
twelve pil ars. What Jesus does today is establish His
Church  as  the  new  Israel,  and  His  Eucharist  as  the
new worship of the living God.

In  offering  himself  to God  through  the  Spirit,  Jesus
delivered  Israel  from  the  transgressions  of  the  first
covenant. And, as we hear in today’s Epistle, by His
blood  He  purified  us  and  made  us  capable  of  true
worship.

God does not want dead works or animal sacrifices.
He  wants  our  own  flesh  and  blood,  our  own  lives,
consecrated to Him, offered as a living sacrifice. This
is  the  sacrifice  of  praise  and  thanksgiving  that  we
sing of in today’s Psalm.

This is the Eucharist.

What we do in memory of Him is to pledge our lives
to Him, to renew our promise to live by the words of
His covenant, and to be His servants.

There is no other return we can offer to Him for the
eternal  inheritance  He  has  won  for  us.  So  let  us
approach  the  altar,  calling  upon  His  name  in
thanksgiving, taking up the cup of salvation.

“Take: This Is My Body…This Is My Blood Of The

Covenant, Which Is Poured Out For Many.”

JESUS

CATHOLIC ANSWERS

www.catholic.com

HOW COULD MARY FEEL SADNESS IF SHE

HAD NO SIN?

Question
How  did  Mary  feel  pain  and  agony  watching  Jesus
during  the  crucifixion  if  she  was  free  from  original
sin?
Answer
There  is  nothing  in  the  theology  of  original  sin  that
says  human  persons  would  have  been  incapable  of
emotions.  The  Gospels  relate  to  us  that  Jesus
experienced emotions:
• Amazement (Matt. 8:10)
• Sorrow (Matt. 26:38)
• Feeling "troubled" (John 11:33-35)
• Anger (Mark 3:5)
Original sin means that our emotions are not always
ordered correctly.   We sometimes get angry for the
wrong reasons or permit our anger to overcome our
reason,  but  this  does  not  mean  there  are  never
situations in which anger is a justified emotion. And,
of course, without sin, we would have little reason to
feel anger or sorrow, but that does not mean we'd be
incapable  of  such  reactions.  As  such,  Mary
experienced  sorrow  not  due  to  her  own  sin  (which
she did not have) but because of the sins of others.

WHY DID GOD CREATE THE TREE OF GOOD AND

EVIL?

Question
Why did God create the tree of good and evil?
Answer
The consensus of theologians is that the tree of good
and evil was present as a test for Adam and Eve. The
tree  gave  Adam  and  Eve  a  choice  to  obey  God  or
disobey God. The forbidding of eating from that tree
was  the  only  thing  that  Adam  and  Eve  were
instructed  not  to  do.  So  this  was  not  a  matter  of
being  confused  by  too  many  commandments  or
being  overwhelmed  by  commandments. They  were
given one clear simple rule. It tested whether Adam
and Eve trusted God.

If  that  tree  had  not  existed,  Adam  and  Eve  would
have  lived  in  a  world  without  any  real  choice  or
commitment.  Their  only  choices  would  have  been
what  to  eat  and  what  direction  to  walk  in.  Such  a

world is not befitting a creature that can freely make
moral  choices.  The  "downside"  to  having  the
freedom  to  choose  is  that  we  can  make  the  wrong
choice, but it is essential to the nature of free choice
and gives meaning to our right choices.

WHAT DO THE BELLS MEAN?

Question
What  is  the  meaning  of  the  bells  during  the
Eucharistic prayer?
Answer
The  origins  of  the  ringing  of  the  bel s  during  the
consecration  date  back  to  the  time  when  the  Mass
was said in Latin, and many of the words said by the
celebrant  were  spoken  in  a  low  voice.  Rood  screens
also became popular in the Middle Ages, and many of
the laity attending Mass had a blocked view. The use
of the bel s was practical: it cal ed people’s attention
to the fact that the consecration was taking place.

Although  many  of  the  practical  reasons  for  the
ringing  of  the  bel s  no  longer  exist,  they  are  stil   a
part of our liturgical tradition and stil  cal  wandering
minds back to the altar and the importance of what is
happening.

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.
