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.

A Message from Parish Pastoral Council

We are blessed to have a beautiful worship space at Our

Lady of the Meadows. Please be mindful of the area around

you - hold the kneelers as you raise and lower them, gently

place the Gather books in the wooden holders, and

pick up used kleenex, spilled Cheerios, etc., before you

leave. These small acts of respect ensure that our sacred

space remains a clean and well maintained liturgical environment

of which we can all be proud.

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.

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.

Marriage Resources


MARRIAGE MOMENTS

Many parents put a small treat in their children's

shoes the night before St. Nick's Day, December

6. Consider putting a treat in your spouse's shoe

(a Hershey kiss, a love note, a coupon for a favor

like a backrub or a chore you'll relieve your spouse

of the next day).

PARENTING POINTERS

"Welcome one another, then, as Christ welcomed

you." (Romans 15:6) As we approach Christmas

many families will be planning family gatherings.

What a joy it usually is to reunite with relatives.

But some families are separated by war, forced

immigration, or ill will. Does your family have a

black sheep you need to make amends with? Does

your country welcome all?

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!

VINCENTIAN MISSION PRAYER

BY SAINT JOHN GABRIEL PERBOYRE, CM.

Divine Savior, transform me into Yourself.

May my hands be Your hands.

May my tongue be Your tongue.

Grant that every faculty of my body

may serve only to glorify You.

Above all, transform my soul

and all its powers,

that my memory, my will and

my affections, may be the memory,

the will and the affections of You.

I pray You to destroy in me,

all that is not of You.

Grant that I may live but in You,

and by You, and for You,

and that I may truly say with St. Paul,

"I live now, not I, but Christ lives in me."


Prayers for the Deceased:

Please remember in your prayers:  Amelia (Millie)  Valdez; Josephine Nicksich; Josephine Bustillos; Andrew Salamon; Mary Speaks; and all the deceased members of our parish, family, and friends

POINTS TO PONDER

THE SACRAMENT OF THE SICK AND VIATICUM

Anointing of the Sick will take place

Saturday, December 10 after the 5:00 p.m. Mass at OLM

& Sunday, December 11 following the 9:15 a.m. Mass at HR

& following the 11:00 a.m. Mass at OLM

What is the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick?

Anointing of the Sick is the sacrament that is received by those

who are ill, elderly, frail or suffering. By this anointing and prayer

of priest, the whole Church commends those who are sick to

Christ. The sick person receives the Holy Spirit’s gifts of strength,

faith, peace, and courage, and his or her suffering is united with

the suffering of Christ for the building up of the Church (Catechism

of the Catholic Church (CCC), nos. 1520-23).

How is the Sacrament celebrated?

The person is anointed with blessed oil on the forehead and

hands. The priest then prays over the sick and members of the

community who are present, place their hands on the shoulders

of the person to be anointed. Like all sacraments, this one is

communal. It is right and fitting for the church to gather with the

sick, to support them in prayer and to encourage them in faith. This

gathering may occur in a church, a home, a hospital or care

center, wherever there is need.

Who should receive the Sacrament?

The Rite of Anointing tells us there is no need to wait until a

person is at the point of death to receive the Sacrament. The

Sacrament may be repeated if the sick person recovers after the

anointing but becomes ill once again, or if, during the same illness,

the person’s condition becomes more serious. A person should

be anointed before surgery when a dangerous illness is the reason

for the proposed surgical intervention. Elderly people may be

anointed if they are in weak condition even though no dangerous

illness is present. Sick children may be anointed if they have

sufficient use of reason to be comforted by this sacrament.

Is this the same as “Last Rites” or “Extreme Unction?”

Catholics often speak of Last Rites when referring to the

Sacrament of the Sick, and there is some confusion about the

meaning of those terms. Before the reforms of the Second Vatican

Council, this sacrament was known as Extreme Unction; since

that time, it is known as the Sacrament of the Sick.

In direct response to Vatican II’s Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy,

the sacrament is not reserved for the dying, but is for the service

of the seriously ill at any age.

What of those who are not only sick, but dying? From its earliest

days, the Church has acknowledged that, within the broader

question of the care of the sick, the dying have particular needs. So,

in addition to the Sacrament of the Sick, the Church always offers

Holy Communion to the dying. This final communion is a rite

reserved for the time of death and is called viaticum.

 

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."

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.



PEACE & JUSTICE
 

Remember to pray for peace every day at noon.

“Even peace may be purchased at too high a price.”

Benjamin Franklin, American founding father, Diplomat, Inventor, Scientist

 



December is the Month of the Immaculate Conception

Prayer to Mary

 

O God, who by the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin didst make ready a fitting habitation for Thy Son, we beseech Thee that Thou who didst keep her clean from all stain by the precious death of the same Son, foreseen by Thee, may grant unto us in like manner to be made clean through her intercession and so attain unto Thee. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen

SAVE THE DATE: Mass,Youth Rally and March for Life
- Denver -
January 14,  2017

We will celebrate Mass in the morning at The Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, Holy Ghost, and St Elizabeth of Hungary (Youth mass/rally). After mass, everyone will process from the three churches to the Capitol building. We are thrilled to have Archbishop Aquila, Abby Johnson, and Chris Stefanick speak at the rally this year. After the speeches, we will march around the capitol in peaceful protest. The entire event should last from about 11:30am-3:00pm

 

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.

LOVE is to will the good of the other.

 

Whom you would change, you must first love
and they must know that you love them.

ONLINE EDUCATION

The Diocese of Pueblo continues its partnership with the University of Dayton to offer online courses in theology and spirituality. Most of the courses last five weeks and cost $50. Those interested in taking one of these courses can select from over 70 topics offered by the University of Dayton. Anyone new to online education might want to begin with some of their basic courses first.  A few of these include: Bible Basics, Catholic Beliefs, and Images of Jesus. People who have more experience with theology workshops or online courses might also consider: Introduction to Scripture, Introduction to Christian Morality, Survey of Catholic Doctrine, or one of their many other courses.

Anyone interested in taking one of these courses is encouraged to explore the University of Dayton’s website at vlc.udayton.edu. The next cycle of classes begins August 28 and lasts until October 1. Registration opened July 13. Any questions regarding registration or reimbursement can be referred to Sister Betty Werner via e-mail at bwerner@dioceseofpueblo.org

 

 

" 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
