STEWARDSHIP REFLECTIONS

“John answered them all, ‘I baptize you with water; but he who is mightier than I is coming…he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit… ‘” (Luke 3:16)

The Catholic Catechism states that “Jesus’ immersion in the water is a sign for all human beings of the need to die to themselves to do God’s will.” In other words, as baptized Catholics there is only one gift that we need to give to Jesus – the gift of ourselves. Surrender yourself to God, place your trust in Him and allow the Holy Spirit to work through you for the greater glory of God .

WEEKLY CATECHISM:

CHAPTER THREE: I BELIEVE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
Article 9 I BELIEVE IN THE HOLY CATHOLIC CHURCH
Paragraph 2 The Church—People of God, Body of Christ, Temple of the Holy Spirit

II. The Church—Body of Christ The Church is communion with Jesus

787 From the beginning, Jesus associated his disciples with his own life, revealed the mystery of the Kingdom to them, and gave them a share in his mission, joy, and sufferings.215 Jesus spoke of a still more intimate communion between
him and those who would follow him: “Abide in me, and I in you. . . . I am the vine, you are the branches.”216 And he proclaimed a mysterious and real communion between his own body and ours: “He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides
in me, and I in him.”217

788 When his visible presence was taken from them, Jesus did not leave his disciples orphans. He promised to remain with them until the end of time; he sent them his Spirit.218 As a result communion with Jesus has become, in a way, more
intense: “By communicating his Spirit, Christ mystically constitutes as his body those brothers of his who are called together from every nation.”219

789 The comparison of the Church with the body casts light on the intimate bond between Christ and his Church. Not only is she gathered around him; she is united in him, in his body. Three aspects of the Church as the Body of Christ are
to be more specifically noted: the unity of all her members with each other as a result of their union with Christ; Christ as head of the Body; and the Church as bride of Christ “One Body”.

790 Believers who respond to God’s word and become members of Christ’s Body, become intimately united with him: “In that body the life of Christ is communicated to those who believe, and who, through the sacraments, are united
in a hidden and real way to Christ in his Passion and glorification.”220 This is especially true of Baptism, which unites us to Christ’s death and Resurrection, and the Eucharist, by which “really sharing in the body of the Lord, . . . we
are taken up into communion with him and with one another.”221

791 The body’s unity does not do away with the diversity of its members: “In the building up of Christ’s Body there is engaged a diversity of members and functions. There is only one Spirit who, according to his own richness
and the needs of the ministries, gives his different gifts for the welfare of the Church.”222 The unity of the Mystical Body produces and stimulates charity among the faithful: “From this it follows that if one member suffers anything, all the
members suffer with him, and if one member is honored, all the members together rejoice.”223 Finally, the unity of the Mystical Body triumphs over all human divisions: “For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There
is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”224

YOUNG ADULT ALTAR SERVER

Young Adult Ministry are now accepting 18-30 year-old single male volunteers for altar serving. Training will be provided. For info, please text Melanie at 604-441-4953   

 

WHAT IS FORMED.ORG

Formed.org is a website of catholic resources (films, podcasts, ebooks, studies). Some parishes have subscribed and provided this resource free of charge to their parishioners and groups for their discussions, studies and faith growth of their children,
family and community. Organizations like RCIA can use it as resource for faith and teaching. We would like to know how many of you would be interested so that the parish can decide whether to subscribe and offer this also. Please
visit https://formed.org/ website to check or call Thelma 778-789-4238 for more info. Please sign up if you are interested in the sheet located at the entrance to the church.

 

WEEK OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY-Jan.18-25
