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.

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

Divine Mercy Sunday

From ancient times the Easter octave, culminating on the 8th day, has been centered on the theme of God's mercy and forgiveness. The final day of the octave celebration of Easter is meant to be a day of thanksgiving to God for his goodness to mankind through the Paschal mystery, that is, the Passion, death, and Resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ. 

The Second Sunday of Easter was named Divine Mercy Sunday by Pope St. John Paul II following a request from Our Lord in his private revelations to St. Faustina Kowalska. On this day Jesus promised to open the floodgates of his inexhaustible mercy and shower abundant graces on those who participate in this feast day. A plenary indulgence is granted (under the usual conditions of sacramental confession, Eucharistic communion, and prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father) to the faithful who, in any church or chapel, in a spirit that is completely detached from the affection for a sin, even a venial sin, take part in the prayers and devotions held in honor of Divine Mercy, or who, in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament exposed or reserved in the tabernacle, recite the Our Father and the Creed, adding a devout prayer to the merciful Lord Jesus.

Divine Mercy Sunday

April 11, 2021

COLLECT PRAYER

 

God of everlasting mercy,
who in the very recurrence of the paschal feast
kindle the faith of the people you have made your own,
increase, we pray, the grace you have bestowed,
that all may grasp and rightly understand in what font they have been washed,
by whose Spirit they have been reborn,
by whose Blood they have been redeemed.


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 April:

Fundamental Rights
We pray for those who risk their lives while fighting for fundamental rights under dictatorships, authoritarian regimes and even in democracies in crisis.

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
