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.

Advent Awakenings -- “Take the Time” based on the Gospel According to St. Mark will be presented the Thursdays in Advent: November 30, December 7, December 14 and December 21 at noon and 7:00 p.m.

Take the Time” encourages participants to prepare for Jesus’ coming by setting aside everyday busyness and becoming more deeply aware of God’s call.

These faith-sharing sessions aim to focus reflection and prayer on the original dynamics of this season--the anticipation of the coming of the Savior in his human nativity, in his real presence in our everyday lives and in his glorious appearance at the end of time.

Please make your reservation by calling Chris at 561-3580. We need to know an approximate number to prepare materials

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist

Dr. Brant Pitre uses the Hebrew Scriptures and Jewish tradition to frame the actions of Jesus at the Last Supper, and to provide a fresh look at the heart of Catholic practice — the Eucharist. By taking us back to the Jewish roots of our faith, Dr. Pitre gives us a powerful lens through which to see anew the bread of the presence, the manna, the Last Supper, and ultimately the meaning of the Eucharist.

Ministry of Consolation -- Bereavement Ministry

It is the goal of the community of Our Lady of the Meadows that no member should suffer the loss of a loved one in isolation.

To that end, we are pleased to offer ongoing supportive

and pastoral services for the bereaved through the ministry of consolation.

These services include a monthly support group on the second Thursday of each month; routine contact by telephone and mail, as desired; assistance at funerals and receptions.

All services are free and available to parishioners or any family member who is experiencing the loss of a loved one.

It is our hope that, through these pastoral services, those suffering a loss may come to know the loving support of the faith community.

For more information contact the parish office, or Paula Giordano at 561-2958.

 

Caregiver Connection

Do you care for someone who is chronically ill; find yourself stressed out and frustrated; feel alone and overwhelmed?

You are not alone”
 

- find comfort in knowing others care. Join us and connect with other caregivers the second and fourth Thursday of every month (10:30 a.m.-noon) at the Joni Fair Hospice House Chapel (Second Floor), 1107 Pueblo Boulevard Way. No registration required. Open to the public.

MARRIAGE MOMENTS

"Speak, for your servant is listening." (1 Samuel 3:18) A common

complaint among couples is, "You're not listening to me."

When is listening hard for you? If you're busy or tired, ask for

a better time. Is there a conversation you've been avoiding?

PARENTING POINTERS

January 19 is the 45th annual March for Life in Washington

DC. Tens of thousands of Pro-Life supporters will testify to

their opposition to abortion. Can't go to Washington? You can

still testify. Talk with your child about the value of life no

matter how young or how old. Perhaps donate baby items to a

pregnancy center.

 

Worldwide Marriage Encounter Retreats

 

Click here For Registration info

The weekend is designed to help married couples communicate more intimately in order to deepen and enrich their relationship. The weekend is free from everyday routines, distractions and tensions. An atmosphere is created where the husband and wife can concentrate exclusively on each other in a private confidential environment.

A series of presentations that touch on many aspects of marriage is given by three couples and a Catholic priest.

After each presentation the couple has time in the privacy of their own room for personal sharing using the communication techniques learned on the weekend. There are no"group discussions." The weekend starts at 8:00 p.m. on Friday and runs until 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. All faith expressions are welco
me!

 

Plants need fertilizer to grow healthy and strong and so too does

your marriage. Without some nurturing and care it will remain weak

and unfulfilling. Spread a little fertilizer on your relationship. Make

a Worldwide Marriage Encounter weekend and watch your love for

each other grow.

Weekends are at historic Glen Eyrie in Colorado Springs.

Message from Bishop Stephen Berg

 

Bishop’s Office

Officials

October 25, 2017

This is to inform you that Monsignor James E. King has announced his retirement from the positions of Vicar General, Chief Financial Officer, and other positions related thereof for the Diocese.  The official date of his retirement is November 1, 2017.  Msgr. King will continue to serve as Pastor of Our Lady of the Meadows and Holy Rosary Parish in Pueblo. 

Since his ordination by Bishop Charles Buswell in 1971, Msgr. King has served graciously in the Diocese in Montrose, Grand Junction, Gunnison, Alamosa, Florence, Canon City and Pueblo.  As he has served in various crucial advisory capacities over the years, his contributions to the temporal and spiritual stability of the church in southern Colorado are significant. 

Bishop Berg wishes especially to express his personal appreciation for these past three years of their work together in the chancery.  “Monsignor King has set a high example of priesthood for the diocese, of care and sacrifice for God’s people, a true measure of devotion to Jesus Christ. Monsignor Jim, on behalf of the diocese, and humbly as your bishop, I express gratitude for your selfless service. I plan to continue to call on you for certain projects which will need your insight and guidance into the future.” 

 

Diocese of Pueblo Prayer for Vocations

Almighty God, ever faithful to Your word,
You have promised to send us shepherds and leaders
after Your own heart to gather and guide us.
We thank You for those priests and religious

and ask You to send them an increase in fellow laborers with Christ
for the salvation of souls.

Mary, Queen of Vocations, Pray for us.

POINTS TO PONDER

 



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.

Jesus, I Trust in You!
 


By asking for the Lord's mercy, trusting in His mercy, and sincerely trying to live His mercy in our lives, we can assure that we will never hear Him say of us, "Their hearts are far  from Me," but rather that wonderful promise, "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy."

PEACE & JUSTICE
 

Remember to pray for peace every day at noon.
 

“If I have been of service, if I have glimpsed more of the nature and

essence of ultimate good, if I am inspired to reach wider horizons of

thought and action, if I am at peace with myself, it has been a successful day.”

Alex Noble, Philanthropist, Dynamite inventor, established Nobel Prize

 


 

January is the Month of the Holy Name of Jesus

In the Name of Jesus let every knee bow,
of those that are in heaven, on earth,
and under the earth
 let every tongue confess that
the Lord Jesus Christ is in the glory of God the Father.

 

Prayer to the Holy Name of Jesus

O good Jesu, according to Thy great mercy, have mercy on me.
O most merciful Jesu, by that Precious Blood which Thou didst will to shed for sinners,
I beseech Thee to wash away all my iniquities and to look graciously upon me,
a poor and unworthy sinner, as I call upon Thy holy Name.
Therefore, O Jesus, do Thou save me for Thy holy Name's sake.
Amen

WHAT KINDS OF PEOPLE become priests, sisters or brothers? Are they people who don't relate well with other people? No. They are people who love others - people who find real satisfaction chatting with a 93-year-old parishioner, holding the hand of a cancer patient, listening to the troubles of a streetwise teen. They are people with the courage to touch lives, hearts and souls in a high-tech, unchurched world. Are you that kind of person? Pray for "Yes" response to God's call.

The Chaplet of St. Michael

O God, come to my assistance. O Lord, make haste to help me. Glory be to the Father, etc.

[Say one Our Father and three Hail Mary's after each of the following nine salutations in honor of the nine Choirs of Angels]  

1. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Seraphim may the Lord make us worthy to burn with the fire of perfect charity.
Amen.

2. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Cherubim may the Lord grant us the grace to leave the ways of sin and run in the paths of Christian perfection.
Amen.

3. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Thrones may the Lord infuse into our hearts a true and sincere spirit of humility.
Amen.

4. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Dominations may the Lord give us grace to govern our senses and overcome any unruly passions.
Amen.

5. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Virtues may the Lord preserve us from evil and falling into temptation. Amen.

6. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Powers may the Lord protect our souls against the snares and temptations of the devil.
Amen.

7. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Principalities may God fill our souls with a true spirit of obedience. Amen.

8. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Archangels may the Lord give us perseverance in faith and in all good works in order that we may attain the glory of Heaven.
Amen.

9. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Angels may the Lord grant us to be protected by them in this mortal life and conducted in the life to come to Heaven.
Amen.

Say one Our Father in honor of each of the following leading Angels: St. Michael, St. Gabriel, St. Raphael and our Guardian Angel.

Concluding prayers:

O glorious prince St. Michael, chief and commander of the heavenly hosts, guardian of souls, vanquisher of rebel spirits, servant in the house of the Divine King and our admirable conductor, you who shine with excellence and superhuman virtue deliver us from all evil, who turn to you with confidence and enable us by your gracious protection to serve God more and more faithfully every day.

Pray for us, O glorious St. Michael, Prince of the Church of Jesus Christ, that we may be made worthy of His promises.

Almighty and Everlasting God, Who, by a prodigy of goodness and a merciful desire for the salvation of all men, has appointed the most glorious Archangel St. Michael Prince of Your Church, make us worthy, we ask You, to be delivered from all our enemies, that none of them may harass us at the hour of death, but that we may be conducted by him into Your Presence.This we ask through the merits of Jesus Christ Our Lord.

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 ."
