year of faith-2013

By faith, Mary visited Elizabeth, and raised her hymn of praise to the Most High for the marvels He worked in those who trust Him (cf. Lk 1:46-55). With joy and trepidation she gave birth to her only Son, keeping her virginity intact (cf. Lk 2:6-7).

PORTA FIDEI BULLETIN QUOTES - 1ST SUNDAY OF ADVENT (2 DECEMBER 2012) TO LAST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (CHRIST THE KING) (24 NOVEMBER 2013)

SUNDAY 2 DECEMBER 2012

“Belief in Jesus Christ is the way to arrive definitively at salvation.”

SUNDAY 2 DECEMBER 2012

“Belief in Jesus Christ is the way to arrive definitively at salvation.”

SUNDAY 9 DECEMBER 2012

“The renewal of the Church is also achieved through the witness offered by the lives of believers. By their very existence in the world, Christians are called to radiate the word of truth that the Lord Jesus has left us.”

 SUNDAY 16 DECEMBER 2012

“Christ, ‘holy, innocent and undefiled’ (Heb 7:26) knew nothing of sin (cf. 2 Cor 5:21), but came only to expiate the sins of the people (cf. Heb 2:17)... the Church ... clasping sinners to its bosom, at once holy and always in need of purification, follows constantly the path of penance and renewal.”

SUNDAY 23 DECEMBER 2012

“The Church, ‘like a stranger in a foreign land, presses forward amid the persecutions of the world and the consolations of God’, announcing the cross and death of the Lord until He comes (cf. 1 Cor 11:26).”

SUNDAY 30 DECEMBER 2012

“By the power of the risen Lord the Church is given strength to overcome, in patience and in love, its sorrow and its difficulties, both those that are from within and those that are from without, so that it may reveal in the world, faithfully, although with shadows, the mystery of its Lord until, in the end, it shall be manifested in full light.”

SUNDAY 6 JANUARY 2013

“The Year…. is a summons to an authentic and renewed conversion to the Lord, the one Saviour of the world.”

SUNDAY 13 JANUARY 2013

“In the mystery of His death and resurrection, God has revealed in its fullness the Love that saves and calls us to conversion of life through the forgiveness of sins (cf. Acts 5:31).”

SUNDAY 20 JANUARY 2013

“Through faith, this new life in Christ shapes the whole of human existence according to the radical new reality of the resurrection. To the extent that he freely cooperates, man’s thoughts and affections, mentality and conduct are slowly purified and transformed, on a journey that is never completely finished in this life.”

SUNDAY 27 JANUARY 2013

“Faith working through love (Gal 5:6) becomes a new criterion of understanding and action that changes the whole of man’s life.”

SUNDAY 3 FEBRUARY 2013

“Caritas Christi urget nos (2 Cor 5:14): it is the love of Christ that fills our hearts and impels us to evangelize. Today as in the past, He sends us through the highways of the world to proclaim His Gospel to all the peoples of the earth (cf. Mt 28:19).”

SUNDAY 10 FEBRUARY 2013

“Through His love, Jesus Christ attracts to Himself the people of every generation: in every age He convokes the Church, entrusting her with the proclamation of the Gospel by a mandate that is ever new.”

SUNDAY 17 FEBRUARY 2013

“Faith grows when it is lived as an experience of love received and when it is communicated as an experience of grace and joy.”

SUNDAY 24 FEBRUARY 2013

“Faith makes us fruitful, because it expands our hearts in hope and enables us to bear life-giving witness: indeed, it opens the hearts and minds of those who listen to respond to the Lord’s invitation to adhere to His word and become His disciples.”

SUNDAY 3 MARCH 2013

“ ‘Believers,’ Saint Augustine tells us, ‘strengthen themselves by believing.’ ”

SUNDAY 10 MARCH 2013

“Only through believing does faith grow and become stronger…There is no other possibility for possessing certitude with regard to one’s life apart from self-abandonment, in a continuous crescendo, into the hands of a love that seems to grow constantly because it has its origin in God.”

SUNDAY 17 MARCH 2013

“We will have the opportunity to profess our faith in the Risen Lord in our cathedrals and in the churches of the whole world; in our homes and among our families, so that everyone may feel a strong need to know better and to transmit to future generations the faith of all times.”

SUNDAY 24 MARCH 2013

“We want this Year (of Faith) to arouse in every believer the aspiration to profess the faith in fullness and with renewed conviction, with confidence and hope.”

SUNDAY 31 MARCH 2013

“This Year of Faith will also be a good opportunity to intensify the celebration of the faith in the liturgy, especially in the Eucharist - the summit towards which the activity of the Church is directed; ... and also the source from which all its power flows.”

SUNDAY 7 APRIL 2013

“We make it our prayer that believers’ witness of life may grow in credibility. To rediscover the content of the faith that is professed, celebrated, lived and prayed, and to reflect on the act of faith, is a task that every believer must make his own, especially in the course of this Year of Faith.”

SUNDAY 14 APRIL 2013

“The creed: ‘the symbol of the holy mystery that you have all received together and that today you have recited one by one, are the words on which the faith of Mother Church is firmly built above the stable foundation that is Christ the Lord. You have received it and recited it, but in your minds and hearts you must keep it ever present, you must repeat it in your beds, recall it in the public squares and not forget it during meals: even when your body is asleep, you must watch over it with your hearts.’ ”

SUNDAY 21 APRIL 2013

“There exists a profound unity between the act by which we believe and the content to which we give our assent. Saint Paul helps us to enter into this reality when he writes: ‘Man believes with his heart and so is justified, and he confesses with his lips and so is saved’ (Rom 10:10). The heart indicates that the first act by which one comes to faith is God’s gift and the action of grace which acts and transforms the person deep within.”

SUNDAY 28 APRIL 2013

“Knowing the content to be believed is not sufficient unless the heart, the authentic sacred space within the person, is opened by grace that allows the eyes to see below the surface and to understand that what has been proclaimed is the word of God.”

SUNDAY 5 MAY 2013

“Confessing with the lips indicates that faith implies public testimony and commitment. A Christian may never think of belief as a private act. Faith is choosing to stand with the Lord so as to live with Him. This “standing with Him” points towards an understanding of the reasons for believing.

SUNDAY 12 MAY 2013

Faith, precisely because it is a free act, also demands social responsibility for what one believes.”

SUNDAY 19 MAY 2013

“The Church on the day of Pentecost demonstrates with utter clarity the public dimension of believing and proclaiming one’s faith fearlessly to every person. It is the gift of the Holy Spirit that makes us fit for mission and strengthens our witness, making it frank and courageous.”

SUNDAY 26 MAY 2013

 “Knowledge of the content of faith is essential for giving one’s own assent, …for adhering fully with intellect and will to what the Church proposes. Knowledge of faith opens a door into the fullness of the saving mystery revealed by God. The giving of assent implies that, when we believe, we freely accept the whole mystery of faith, because the guarantor of its truth is God who reveals Himself and allows us to know His mystery of love.”

SUNDAY 2 JUNE 2013

 “The Catechism provides a permanent record of the many ways in which the Church has meditated on the faith and made progress in doctrine so as to offer certitude to believers in their lives of faith. In its very structure, it follows the development of the faith right up to the great themes of daily life.”

SUNDAY 9 JUNE 2013

“The Catechism presents an encounter with a Person who lives within the Church. The profession of faith is followed by an account of sacramental life, in which Christ is present, operative and continues to build His Church.”

SUNDAY 16 JUNE 2013

“Without the liturgy and the sacraments, the profession of faith would lack efficacy, because it would lack the grace which supports Christian witness. By the same criterion, the teaching of the Catechism on the moral life acquires its full meaning if placed in relationship with faith, liturgy and prayer.”

SUNDAY 23 JUNE 2013

“To a greater extent than in the past, faith is now being subjected to a series of questions arising from a changed mentality which, especially today, limits the field of rational certainties to that of scientific and technological discoveries. Nevertheless, the Church has never been afraid of demonstrating that there cannot be any conflict between faith and genuine science, because both, albeit via different routes, tend towards the truth.”

SUNDAY 30 JUNE 2013

 “We will need to keep our gaze fixed upon Jesus Christ, the “pioneer and perfecter of our faith” (Heb 12:2): in Him, all the anguish and all the longing of the human heart finds fulfilment.”

SUNDAY 7 JULY 2013

“The joy of love, the answer to the drama of suffering and pain, the power of forgiveness in the face of an offence received and the victory of life over the emptiness of death: all this finds fulfilment in the mystery of the Incarnation, in Christ’s becoming man, in His sharing our human weakness so as to transform it by the power of His resurrection.”

SUNDAY 14 JULY 2013

“In Him who died and rose again for our salvation, the examples of faith that have marked these two thousand years of our salvation history are brought into the fullness of light.”

SUNDAY 21 JULY 2013

“By faith, Mary accepted the Angel’s word and believed the message that she was to become the Mother of God in the obedience of her devotion (cf. Lk 1:38)”

SUNDAY 28 JULY 2013

By faith, Mary visited Elizabeth, and raised her hymn of praise to the Most High for the marvels He worked in those who trust Him (cf. Lk 1:46-55). With joy and trepidation she gave birth to her only Son, keeping her virginity intact (cf. Lk 2:6-7). Trusting in Joseph, her husband, she took Jesus to Egypt to save Him from Herod’s persecution (cf. Mt 2:13-15).

SUNDAY 4 AUGUST 2013

“By faith, Mary followed the Lord in His preaching and remained with Him all the way to Golgotha…She tasted the fruits of Jesus’ resurrection, and treasuring every memory in her heart (cf. Lk 2:19, 51), she passed them on to the Twelve assembled with her in the Upper Room to receive the Holy Spirit (cf. Acts 1:14; 2:1-4).”

SUNDAY 11 AUGUST 2013

By faith, the Apostles left everything to follow their Master (cf. Mk 10:28). They believed the words with which He proclaimed the Kingdom of God present and fulfilled in His person (cf. Lk 11:20). They lived in communion of life with Jesus who instructed them with His teaching, leaving them a new rule of life, by which they would be recognized as His disciples after His death (cf. Jn 13:34-35).”

SUNDAY 18 AUGUST 2013

“By faith, the Apostles went out to the whole world, following the command to bring the Gospel to all creation (cf. Mk 16:15) and they fearlessly proclaimed to all the joy of the resurrection, of which they were faithful witnesses.”

SUNDAY 25 AUGUST 2013

“By faith, the disciples formed the first community, gathered around the teaching of the Apostles, in prayer, in celebration of the Eucharist, holding their possessions in common so as to meet the needs of the brethren (cf. Acts 2:42-47).”

SUNDAY 1 SEPTEMBER 2013

“By faith, the martyrs gave their lives, bearing witness to the truth of the Gospel that had transformed them and made them capable of attaining to the greatest gift of love: the forgiveness of their persecutors.”

SUNDAY 8 SEPTEMBER 2013

“By faith, men and women have consecrated their lives to Christ, leaving all things behind so as to live obedience, poverty and chastity with Gospel simplicity, concrete signs of waiting for the Lord who comes without delay.”

SUNDAY 15 SEPTEMBER 2013

“By faith, countless Christians have promoted action for justice so as to put into practice the word of the Lord, who came to proclaim deliverance from oppression and a year of favour for all (cf. Lk 4:18-19).”

SUNDAY 22 SEPTEMBER 2013

“By faith, across the centuries, men and women of all ages, whose names are written in the Book of Life (cf. Rev 7:9, 13:8), have confessed the beauty of following the Lord Jesus wherever they were called to bear witness to the fact that they were Christian: in the family, in the workplace, in public life, in the exercise of the charisms and ministries to which they were called. By faith, we too live: by the living recognition of the Lord Jesus, present in our lives and in our history.”

SUNDAY 29 SEPTEMBER 2013

“This Year of Faith is also a good opportunity to intensify the witness of charity. As Saint Paul reminds us: ‘So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love’ (1 Cor 13:13).”

SUNDAY 6 OCTOBER 2013

“ ‘As you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me’ (Mt 25:40). These words are a warning that must not be forgotten and a perennial invitation to return the love by which He takes care of us.”

SUNDAY 13 OCTOBER 2013

“It is faith that enables us to recognize Christ and it is His love that impels us to assist Him whenever He becomes our neighbour along the journey of life. Supported by faith, let us look with hope at our commitment in the world, as we await ‘new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells’ (2 Pet 3:13; cf. Rev 21:1).”

SUNDAY 20 OCTOBER 2013

“Saint Paul asks his disciple Timothy to ‘aim at faith’ (2 Tim 2:22) with the same constancy as when he was a boy (cf. 2 Tim 3:15). We hear this invitation directed to each of us, that none of us grow lazy in the faith.”

SUNDAY 27 OCTOBER 2013

“Faith commits every one of us to become a living sign of the presence of the Risen Lord in the world. What the world is in particular need of today is the credible witness of people enlightened in mind and heart by the word of the Lord, and capable of opening the hearts and minds of many to the desire for God and for true life, life without end.”

SUNDAY 3 NOVEMBER 2013

 “The life of Christians knows the experience of joy as well as the experience of suffering. How many of the saints have lived in solitude! How many believers, even in our own day, are tested by God’s silence when they would rather hear His consoling voice!”

SUNDAY 10 NOVEMBER 2013

“The trials of life, while helping us to understand the mystery of the Cross and to participate in the sufferings of Christ (cf. Col 1:24), are a prelude to the joy and hope to which faith leads: “when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Cor 12:10).”

SUNDAY 17 NOVEMBER 2013

 “We believe with firm certitude that the Lord Jesus has conquered evil and death. With this sure confidence we entrust ourselves to Him: He, present in our midst, overcomes the power of the evil one.”

SUNDAY 24 NOVEMBER 2013

“The Church, the visible community of Christ’s mercy, abides in Him as a sign of definitive reconciliation with the Father…Let us entrust this time of grace to the Mother of God, proclaimed ‘blessed because she believed’ (Lk 1:45).”

Prayer for School Project

Loving and Provident God, Creator of all and Builder of the Universe, We, the Parish family of the Church of the Assumption Falomo, humbly ask your continued blessing on the spiritual, human and financial commitment we have made for the building of our School, Mater Ecclesiae College Epe and the fulfillment of Your Kingdom on earth. Unless You build the house, we labour in vain to build it. Through the intercession of Mary, Mother of God and St. Joseph, bring this project to its realization, complete the work that has begun and give us your grace to carry out this mission of evangelization. We ask this through Christ the Lord.  Amen.
