St. Daniel3004 Court St Syracuse, New York 13208WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF-EVIDENT, THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL, THATTHEY ARE ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR WITH CERTAIN INALIENABLE RIGHTS, THAT AMONGTHESE ARE LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. (Declaration of Independence)St. Daniel Website: www.stdaniel.comE-Mail: [email protected]: (315) 454-4946 September 12, 2021This next selection elucidates the meaning and purpose of gender and goes on to explain whatbecomes of human sexuality when it is devoid of love.Man is called to love and to self‐giving in the unity of body and spirit. Femininity and masculinityare complementary gifts, through which human sexuality is an integrating part of the concretecapacity for love which God has inscribed in man and woman. ʺSexuality is a fundamentalcomponent of personality, one of its modes of being, of manifestation, of communicating withothers, of feeling, of expressing and of living human love.ʺThis capacity for love as self‐giving is thus ʺincarnatedʺ in the nuptial meaning of the body, whichbears the imprint of the persons masculinity and femininity. ʺThe human body, with its sex, and itsmasculinity and femininity, seen in the very mystery of creation, is not only a source of fruitfulnessand procreation, as in the whole natural order, but includes right ʹfrom the beginningʹ the ʹnuptialʹattribute, that is, the capacity of expressing love: that love precisely in which the man‐personbecomes a gift and—by means of this gift—fulfils the very meaning of his being and existence.ʺEvery form of love will always bear this masculine and feminine character. Human sexuality isthus a good, part of that created gift which God saw as being ʺvery goodʺ, when he created thehuman person in his image and likeness, and ʺmale and female he created themʺ (Genesis 1:27).Insofar as it is a way of relating and being open to others, sexuality has love as its intrinsic end,more precisely, love as donation and acceptance, love as giving and receiving.The relationship between a man and a woman is essentially a relationship of love: ʺSexuality,oriented, elevated and integrated by love acquires truly human quality.ʺ When such love exists inmarriage, self‐giving expresses, through the body, the complementarity and totality of the gift.Married love thus becomes a power which enriches persons and makes them grow and, at thesame time, it contributes to building up the civilization of love. But when the sense and meaningof gift is lacking in sexuality, a ʺcivilization of things and not of personsʺ takes over, ʺacivilization in which persons are used in the same way as things are used. In the context of acivilization of use, woman can become an object for man, children a hindrance to parents.ʺ

Page TwoSt. Daniel ChurchSeptember 12, 2021Pastor’s Column - Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary TimeDear friends in Christ,In the Gospel this weekend we hear the Lord ask the disciples Who do people say that I am? In response, wehear of how Peter is given a special grace to recognize Jesus as the Messiah. Peter said to him in reply, “You arethe Christ.” The special graces that are given to Peter are still at work in the Petrine Ministry. The Catechism ofthe Catholic Church explains the role of both the Pope and the Bishops.When Christ instituted the Twelve, "he constituted [them] in the form of a college or permanent assembly, at thehead of which he placed Peter, chosen from among them. "Just as "by the Lord's institution, St. Peter and therest of the apostles constitute a single apostolic college, so in like fashion the Roman Pontiff, Peter's successor,and the bishops, the successors of the apostles, are related with and united to one another."The Lord made Simon alone, whom he named Peter, the "rock" of his Church. He gave him the keys of hisChurch and instituted him shepherd of the whole flock. "The office of binding and loosing which was given toPeter was also assigned to the college of apostles united to its head." This pastoral office of Peter and the otherapostles belongs to the Church's very foundation and is continued by the bishops under the primacy of the Pope.The Pope, Bishop of Rome and Peter's successor, "is the perpetual and visible source and foundation of theunity both of the bishops and of the whole company of the faithful." "For the Roman Pontiff, by reason of hisoffice as Vicar of Christ, and as pastor of the entire Church has full, supreme, and universal power over thewhole Church, a power which he can always exercise unhindered.""The college or body of bishops has no authority unless united with the Roman Pontiff, Peter's successor, as itshead." As such, this college has "supreme and full authority over the universal Church; but this power cannotbe exercised without the agreement of the Roman Pontiff.""The individual bishops are the visible source and foundation of unity in their own particular Churches." Assuch, they "exercise their pastoral office over the portion of the People of God assigned to them," assisted bypriests and deacons. But, as a member of the episcopal college, each bishop shares in the concern for all theChurches. The bishops exercise this care first "by ruling well their own Churches as portions of the universalChurch," and so contributing "to the welfare of the whole Mystical Body, which, from another point of view, is acorporate body of Churches. "They extend it especially to the poor, to those persecuted for the faith, as well asto missionaries who are working throughout the world.Neighboring particular Churches who share the same culture form ecclesiastical provinces or larger groupingscalled patriarchates or regions. The bishops of these groupings can meet in synods or provincial councils. "In alike fashion, the episcopal conferences at the present time are in a position to contribute in many and fruitfulways to the concrete realization of the collegiate spirit."Grace be with you all,Rev. Thomas I. WardAdministrator
