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.

Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles, vice-president of the USCCB has called on the bishops to consider taking up a special collection in response to the recent devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. Funds given to the collection will support the humanitarian and recovery efforts of Catholic Charities USA and will provide pastoral and rebuilding support to impacted dioceses through the USCCB.

The Diocese of Pueblo will join with dioceses across the country in taking this special collection for Hurricane Harvey Relief on the weekends of September 2-3 or September 9-10. All money collected at the parish level can be sent to the diocesan offices. In doing so, please indicate it is for the special collection for Hurricane Harvey Relief.

If parishioners miss the collection or would like to donate online instead, they may go to the website for Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston - Houston, here: https://catholiccharities.org/donate-now-and-help-our-neighbors-recover-from-disaster/.

Please join Bishop Berg in praying for all those affected by Hurricane Harvey.  May God give comfort and consolation to all victims and their families especially through the hands of all those engaged in the vital work of relief, recovery and rebuilding.

established by Christ in his Church is intimately connected

with the Kingdom of Heaven, especially through the

celebration of the Mass. You will learn what all the mysterious

figures and images of Revelation present, as well as what

will happen during the Second Coming of Christ, what has

already happened, and what is happening now in salvation

history. Join us for Revelation: The Kingdom Yet to Come.

Notes from the coach

• Growing Up Catholic has begun, but it is not too late to

register your children or grandchildren.

• Our focus will be building up the church by strengthening

the domestic church of your homes in conjunction with

parish activities.

• Each week we will focus on a parable of Jesus and then

integrate it in our life in the church.

• October 1 will feature a praying of the Rosary on the

100 anniversary of Our Lady’s visitation in Fatima and

releasing a helium balloon rosary. We will need folks to

help us put it together. On Saturday, September 30, we

will lay it all out and on Sunday, October 1 after the

7:30 a.m.Mass we will fill and attach the balloons. This

is a parish activity in conjunction with Growing Up

Catholic.

• Children who bring donations of food for the poor will

be the ones to take up our gifts of bread and wine during

the Mass.

• Don’t forget the Christmas pageant preparation

throughout the month of December.

• Preparation for Reconciliation for the First Time will

begin the end of September. First Eucharist preparation

will begin after the first of the year (January, 2018).

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.

Marriage Resources


MARRIAGE MOMENTS

Infidelity is not always physical. A more subtle form

is Emotional Infidelity. It can start when one spouse

feels under-appreciated and gets affirmation from

someone outside the marriage. Sometimes work (paid

or volunteer) or even the needs of one's own children

can be the source. Giving time and attention now can

prevent an emotional affair later.

PARENTING POINTERS

"You duped me, O Lord, and I let myself be duped."

(Jeremiah 20: 7) Sometimes each of us makes a fool

of ourselves. Share a time that you did something

foolish and how you recovered. It will give your child

hope that they too can recover

 

Worldwide Marriage Encounter Retreats

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.

Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

September 17, 2017

Wrath and anger are hateful things,
yet the sinner hugs them tight.
The vengeful will suffer the LORD's vengeance,
for he remembers their sins in detail.
Forgive your neighbor's injustice;
then when you pray, your own sins will be forgiven.

Sirach 27:30-28:2

 

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: Father Ray Grimes; Angela Margaret Harrison; George H. Luby; Jack Biondolillo; Clara Castruita; and all the deceased members of our parish, family, and friends



POINTS TO PONDER

 

 

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.

 

"Let us forgive each other--only then we will live in peace.”

Leo N. Tolstoy, Russian novelist



 

September is the Month of The Seven Sorrows of Mary


CHAPLET OF THE SEVEN SORROWS OF MARY

This devotion, instituted in the course of the thirteenth century, honors the Sorrows endured by the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is recited on a Rosary comprised of seven decades containing seven beads in each decade. Each decade of seven is divided from the rest by medals representing the seven principal sorrows of Her life.

The chaplet is said by offering a Hail Mary on each of the beads, with an Our Father each seven Hail Mary's. Completion of the chaplet requires three Hail Mary's at the end in honor of the sorrowful tears of Our Lady.

First Sorrow:

Reflect on the sorrow of Our Blessed Lady, when She presented Her Divine Child in the Temple and heard from the aged Simeon that a sword of grief would pierce Her soul.

Second Sorrow:

Reflect on Her sorrow when, to escape the cruelty of King Herod, She was forced to fly into Egypt with St. Joseph and Her Beloved Child. Pray for those who kill children today by abortion.

Third Sorrow:

Reflect on Her grief when, in returning from Jerusalem, She found that She had lost Her dear Jesus, Whom She sought for three days.

Fourth Sorrow:

Reflect on Her meeting Her divine Son, all bruised and bleeding, carrying His Cross to Calvary, and seeing Him fall under its heavy weight.

Fifth Sorrow:

Reflect on Her standing by, when Her Divine Son was lifted up on the Cross and the blood flowed in streams from His Sacred Wounds.

Six Sorrow:

Reflect on Her sorrow, when Her Divine son was taken down from the Cross, and placed in Her arms.

Seven Sorrow:

Reflect on Her following His Sacred Body as it was borne by Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus to the sepulcher.


Prayers of the Chaplet:

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

The Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace! the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of they womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. 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.

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.
Martin Luther King

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.

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.

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.

" 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
