Lord our God, when your Son was dying on the altar of the cross, he gave us as our mother the one he had chosen to be his own mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary; grant that we who call upon the holy name of Mary, our mother, with confidence in her protection may receive strength and comfort in all our needs.

Advancing Missionary Discipleship

Remember to use February and March to build up your Parish’s AMD reserve (former DMF) so we have extra funds

available to pay the 15% Tax starting in April and beyond. How much we receive in February and March will determine

how we budget for each Parish for the upcoming Fiscal Year (July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022.)

 

Thank You to everyone for your continued generosity in Parish support.

We receive the bulk of support by mail and it is deeply appreciated.

June 7, 2021

Welcome back!!

 

Parishioners of Our Lady of the Meadows:

We have finally come full circle (almost) with the pandemic situation. After we checked with the Pueblo Health Department and received specific permissions from the Diocese, we are ready to open up freer of pandemic restrictions. Starting this

weekend, we will begin to do our Sunday Liturgies pretty much the same as pre-pandemic:

All entrance doors to the church are now available.

Holy Water will be in the Baptism Font for Blessing.

Gather Books and Prayer Cards are back in the pews. Join in hymns.

Masks are optional for the fully vaccinated. Masks should be worn by the unvaccinated (Health Department).

Seating will be as normal. People wishing to be spaced will be accommodated (tell the Hospitality Minister).

We will not pass the Offertory Baskets. Please continue to contribute using the baskets at the entrances when you enter the Church.

Peace Greeting will be invited. Physical touch with family. Nod and speak Peace to non-family. Same for the Our Father

-- you may join hands with family.

Communion will continue with only the Host being distributed. We will need specific permission from the Bishop before return to the Chalice. Communion Ministers will continue to sanitize their hands and wear masks. Communion will be distributed in four lines if size of the congregation and availability of Eucharistic Ministers allows. If the congregation is smaller, we will do only two lines down the center aisle. Keep some distance between yourself or your group and others

lowering your mask prior to receiving Communion. Please receive by open hand only.

We’ll see how it goes this weekend. Now that we can accommodate more people, I hope to see a return to pre-pandemic numbers in attendance.

Welcome back!

Father Jim

... May Our Lady of Guadalupe and Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus hear our prayers and lead us to victory over Satan, the Adversary, the Enemy of Christ and humankind. May we more deeply journey through the Heart of Jesus in the year ahead, to proclaim the Gospel in our diocese, always mindful of the most precious gift with which we have been entrusted: the safety, future and faith of our children."

Most Reverend Stephen J. Berg, D.D.

Almighty, and everlasting God,
who hast appointed Thine only-begotten Son to be the Redeemer of the world,
and hast been pleased to be reconciled unto us by His Blood,
grant us, we beseech Thee,
so to venerate with solemn worship the price of our salvation,
that the power thereof may here on earth keep us from all things hurtful,
and the fruit of the same may gladden us for ever hereafter in heaven.
Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
 

Our Prayer


The LORD bless you and keep you!
The LORD let his face shine upon
you, and be gracious to you!
The LORD look upon you kindly and
give you peace!

When Jesus saw the vast crowd,

his heart was moved with pity for them,

and he began to teach them.

Mark 6:30-34

 

COLLECT PRAYER

Show favor, O Lord, to your servants
and mercifully increase the gifts of your grace,
that, made fervent in hope, faith and charity,
they may be ever watchful in keeping your commands.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.
Amen

Our Holy Father's Prayer Intention for July:

Social Friendship: We pray that, in social, economic and political situations of conflict, we may be courageous and passionate architects of dialogue and friendship.

 

Holy Father's suggested prayer to St Joseph:

Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.

Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage,
and defend us from every evil.  Amen.

How can we protect our children when we don't respect life?

Mother Teresa  I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts.--Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God, obeying his voice, and holding fast to him. For that will mean life for you, a long life for you to live on the land which the LORD swore to your ancestors, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give to them. Dt 30:19-20

Let us Pray: Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

" Above all, let your love for one another be intense, because love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining.  As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen ."
-- 1 Peter 4:8-11
