EASTER - NEW HOPE, NEW OPPORTUNITIES
TO BE GOD’S LOVE IN THE WORLD
Easter floods us with the Good News of God’s extreme,
over-the-top love for us, His creation. The message and
challenge of the Easter season about to start is taking that love,
that new hope, that promise of new life, out to the world.
In Easter-time, we are starting in earnest the fund-raising to
accomplish bringing two refugee families out of death and
sorrow into a new life in Canada. Bringing New Life means your
time, your participation, your contribution - YOUR LOVE.
No time or treasure of talent is too small or unwanted.

TODAY IS SOLIDARITY SUNDAY!
How can I pray the Lord’s Prayer better?
(Part IX)
The SEVENTH PETITION of the Lord’s Prayer and the last one
is “…but deliver us from evil.” Like the other petitions, it is
commonly misunderstood.
This last petition is somewhat ambiguous because the
Greek word used for ‘evil’ can be read as either neuter or
masculine. If it is neuter, it refers to a kind of ‘generic’ evil—
sin. If it is intended to read as a masculine noun, it would
then refer to the enemy of our salvation—the fallen angels.
It could well be both: We pray for deliverance from wickedness and from the wicked angels.
It is also helpful to understand the Lord’s Prayer as
particularly related to the End of all Things. There are
various evils that afflict us, some major, some minor. At the
same time, Catholics ought to be aware that the Magisterium teaches that there will come a time in the future when
the Church will be subjected to a final, cataclysmic struggle,
and by praying “deliver us from evil,” we are praying on
behalf of the Church that she would be protected from the
‘worst possible scenario.’ The Catechism of the Catholic
Church explains: “Before Christ's second coming the
Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the
faith of many believers” (¶675). The Catechism goes on to
say that many Catholics will abandon the faith for a ‘pseudomessianism’ in which they will look away from Jesus Christ
for alternative solutions to the world’s problems. Pope
Francis has spoken of this many times by his use of the
words “ideological colonization.” By praying the Seventh
Petition, we pray against being duped by false messianic
claims that someone or something other than Christ
promises a better solution to the problems of life.
More immediately, however, this petition is also a prayer
for the grace of final perseverance, otherwise known as the
grace of a happy death. We know that in order to be saved,
our souls must be in the state of sanctifying grace—which
can be forfeited easily if we leave grave sin unrepented. As
we get older, it is also easy to grow hardened in our
obduracy about certain things. In praying for the ‘grace of
final perseverance’ with the words “but deliver us from evil,”
we are asking that the Lord spare us whatever final efforts
will be made by ‘the world, the flesh, or the devil’ to induce
us to shake off our faith before we step into eternity.
It is only God who can help us remain faithful to the end;
humans simply do not possess the strength to do it. The
Council of Trent teaches: “If anyone says, that the justified,
either is able to persevere, without the special help of God
[i.e. without the grace of final perseverance], in the justice
received; or that, with that help, he is not able; let him be
anathema.”
So in the final petition, we pray against evil in general,
against the snares of the wicked angels, for protection
during the Church’s final trial, and for the grace to remain
faithful to Jesus until the end.
Pope Francis ends his Joy of the Gospel with this prayer to
Mary:
Star of the new evangelization,
help us to bear radiant witness to communion,
service, ardent and generous faith,
justice and love of the poor,
that the joy of the Gospel
may reach to the ends of the Earth,
illuminating even the fringes of our world.
Today, on the Fifth Sunday of Lent, Solidarity Sunday, we join
the Holy Father in praying that we may all be radiant witnesses
and that through our support of DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE,
the joy of the Gospel may indeed illuminate even the darkest
corners of our world! Your gift can be placed in the Together
We Serve envelopes during next collection which will be held
on April 3. Thank you for your generosity in helping to meet the
needs of the world.

THANK YOU
"We, the Knit, Pray 'n Crochet Group wish to thank all the
parishioners who supported us in our fundraiser on March 15,
2015 at the pancake breakfast event. The results will go a long
way to support the North Mission Churches. The crafts we sold
and donations we received will enable us to continue our work in
supplying these Churches with much needed warm clothing and
winter accessories.
We would also like to thank the Knights of Columbus for so
generously allowing us to fundraise during their pancake breakfasts. Our hearts are grateful to all and may God bless you all.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: YOUTH MINISTER - ANGELA MCCORMICK - ANNOUNCES RESIGNATION
Dear youth, young adults, families and parishioners,
It is with great difficulty that I announce that I am stepping down as St. Theresa’s Youth and Young Adult minister. My last day in the
office will be Thursday, April 23, 2015. This has not been an easy decision for me to make as I love St. Theresa’s parish very much. I
came to this decision after much prayer and consideration, under the guidance of my spiritual director as well as through discussions
with my family and my significant other, Jeremy Lott.
Some of you are aware I was discerning and had applied to be a chaplain in the Canadian Forces. I have since postponed my
application to the Canadian Forces chaplaincy in order to focus on discerning marriage with Jeremy. As such, it is best for me to move
back to the West coast so I can be closer to Jeremy and family during the marriage discernment process.
With regards to questions you likely have about what this means for St. Theresa’s, Confirmation and our youth ministry. I will attempt
to address them here.
First off, what does this mean for our youth ministry? Youth events will continue on as normal, even after I have left. St. Theresa’s
core teams and volunteer leaders are very competent and will continue to organize and run our Edge and Life Teen youth events until
the end of the school year in June. They are able to run things with or without a new youth minister in place.
What about Confirmation? Nothing is cancelled. In May, we will still be having our student-sponsor Confirmation retreat on May 16,
and Confirmation Mass with Archbishop Smith on May 17. Everything is moving forward. The scheduling is all planned and there will
be a well-organized leader running things on those two dates. So do not be afraid!
You may also be wondering if there is going to be an opportunity to say goodbye? Yes! Most certainly! We have two different goodbye
events organized. There’s a goodbye cake celebration in St. Theresa’s parish foyer after every Sunday Mass on April 11 and 12.
And there is also a Goodbye Potluck on Saturday, April 18 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in St. Theresa’s parish hall (RSVP at
http://bit.do/goodbyepotluck ). All are welcome and invited. I would love to see you.
I thank our Lord for providing me with so many opportunities and experiences here at St. Theresa’s parish. I love and cherish
St. Theresa’s parish community, in particular her many youth and families, whom I will continue to pray for and will sorely miss. Our
youth hold a very special place in my heart. They are like my own kids and it has been such a gift to watch them grow over the years.
St. Theresa’s is beginning the diligent search for a new youth minister. Your prayers are most appreciated during this process and
time of transition, in particular that the Lord will guide the right person to St. Theresa’s, to continue helping our young people draw
closer to Christ and make the joy of the Lord their strength (Neh 8:10).
Sincerely,
Angela McCormick
