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.

NOTICE TO ALL PARISHIONERS

Live attendance of Mass is now allowed and encouraged, observing the wearing of masks and social distancing. Please arrive 15 minutes early to accomplish appropriate seating arrangements. Overflow will be accomodated in the Parish Hall with live video and communion delivered.

In addition to live attendance, we continue streaming Sunday MASS at 7:30 AM and  DAILY MASS Tuesday-Friday at 8:00 a.m. live on our Facebook Page. The Mass remains on-line for about 24 hours before it is taken down and replaced by the Mass of the new day.

Our main method of communication with Parishioners is through our OLM Web-site (www.olm-parish.com) and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ olmparishpueblo/) together with e-mail communication with those who have submitted an e-mail address to OLM -- Even, so many Parishioners do not communicate via the Internet. It would be kind and considerate if you were to ‘adopt’ those folks and provide hard copy for them.

The Parish Office is not open; Staff comes in at times and/or handles things remotely. We would be most happy to use hard mail to communicate; however, we need to know the particular need. (Usually, extended family or friends fill the gaps for the more isolated Parishioners. -- Thank you!)

We are set up for e-mail communication with Parishioners who have responded to the March 18 mailing. In that mailing, the following was requested:

“Please send your preferred e-mail address (by clicking on the below link) to:

          ● your name

          ● which Parish you belong to (OLM or HR)

          ● your e-mail address

          ● your preferred phone number
           

          On subject line, put Parishioner”

If you have not already responded, please do so. There are some communications that do not seem appropriate for either the Web page or Facebook page.

● Our Sunday Visitor has a program of on-line giving that we are plugging into. OSV is our Envelope tithe Company; connect with the buttons at the top of this website.

... 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.
Bishop of Pueblo

The First Sunday in Lent

February 21, 2021

Lenten Reflection -- First Sunday of Lent

“God of transformation, you know our weaknesses.
Strengthen us as we struggle to lead lives that we were called to in our baptism.
Be with us during this Lenten season and help us to believe that we can triumph over our temptations.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.”

COLLECT PRAYER

Grant, almighty God,
through the yearly observances of holy Lent,
that we may grow in understanding of the riches hidden in Christ
and by worthy conduct pursue their effects.

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

churches the first Sunday of Lent. Use the inserted calendar to

form your lenten practices. Rice Bowls should be returned beginning

Palm Sunday. Please be generous.

Pope Francis' Daily Activities

Our Holy Father's Prayer Intention for February:

Violence Against Women: We pray for women who are victims of violence, that they may be protected by society and have their sufferings considered and heeded.

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.

Prayers for Coronavirus Outbreak

Keep us, good Lord,

under the shadow of your mercy,

in this time of uncertainty and distress.

Sustain and support the anxious and fearful

and lift up all who are brought low;

that we may rejoice in your comfort

knowing that nothing can separate us

from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Amen.


3 O’clock Divine Mercy Prayer

You expired, O Jesus,

but the source of life flowed out for souls

and an ocean of mercy

opened up for the whole world.

O Fountain of Life,

unfathomable Divine Mercy,

envelop the whole world,

and empty Yourself out upon us.

O Blood and Water,

which gushed forth

from the Heart of Jesus

as a Fount of Mercy for us,

I trust in You.

 

Holy God,

Holy Mighty One,

Holy Immortal One,

Have mercy on us

and on the hole world. (3X)

 

Jesus, King of Mercy, I trust in You.

Amen.

 

Prayers for those in isolation

God of compassion,

be close to those who are ill,

afraid or in isolation.

In their loneliness, be their consolation;

in their anxiety, be their hope;

in their darkness, be their light;

through him who suffered alone

on the cross,

but reigns with you in glory,

Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

 

 

Prayers for Medical Staff & Researchers

Gracious God,

give skill, sympathy and resilience

to all who are caring for the sick,

and your wisdom to those researching for a cure.

Strengthen them with your Spirit,

that through their work

many will be restored to health;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Prayers for those who mourn during this time of the Coronavirus COVID-19

Lord of all gentleness.

You are close to the broken-hearted.

We entrust into your care

those who mourn the loss

of a loved one this day.

Surround them with our love

and comfort them in their sorrow.

Grant that they may not be overwhelmed

by their loss.

May they know the consolation and support

of the Christian community

Give them confidence in your goodness

and strength to meet the days ahead.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Prayers for Health Care Workers

God of everlasting goodness,

you sent your Son among us

to bring healing, peace, and reconciliation

to our weary world.

Be with all health care workers and their assistants

in this time of the Coronavirus pandemic.

As they continue Jesus’ ministry of care,

renew them in mind, body, and spirit.

Keep them safe from infection and illness,

and may Christ’s healing presence

flow through them

as they serve those entrusted to their care.

We ask this in his name,

Christ the healer,

who is Lord forever and ever.

Amen.

Marian Prayer for Our Time

O Mary, Health of the Sick,

you always shine on our path

as a sign of salvation and of hope.

We entrust ourselves to you.

You know what we need,

and we are sure you will provide

so that, as in Cana of Galilee,

we may return to joy and to feasting

after this time of trial.

Help us, Mother of Divine Love,

to do as we are told by Jesus,

who has taken upon Himself our sufferings

and carried our sorrows,

leading us through the cross

to the joy of the Resurrection.

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 ."
