We strive to love God and love our neighbor as ourselves by gratefully sharing our many gifts from God

Statue of Our Lady of the Meadows

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.

The Culture of Life


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.

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

Focus of October: Respect Life

Imagine yourself pausing in front of a design of great  beauty. Your soul quiets and is filled with wonder and awe.

If art, created by man, can evoke such a response within us, how much more is the same wonder, reverence and respect due to each person we encounter, who was handcrafted by the very God who spoke the world into being?

Now think of an artist stepping back from a great work of art and admiring his or her creation.

When God created each of us, He did so with precision and purpose, and He looks on each of us with love that cannot be outdone in intensity or tenderness.

Moreover, the Lord invites each of us to behold ourselves and each other with the same wonder and awe.

No matter how the world might view us or others, let us treat each person as the masterpiece that he or she is.

“Even the weakest and most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the poor, are masterpieces of God’s creation, made in his own image, destined to live forever, and deserving of the utmost reverence and respect.”

Pope Francis’ Day for Life Greeting

"You shall love the Lord, your God,
with all your heart,
with all your soul,
and with all your mind.
This is the greatest and the first commandment.
The second is like it:
You shall love your neighbor as yourself..."
 Mt 22:37-39



PEACE & JUSTICE

Remember to pray for peace every day at noon.
 

You are not going to get peace with millions of armed men. The chariot of peace cannot advance over a road littered with cannon.

WORSHIP

VOCATIONS

November 2-9, 2014 is National Vocations Awareness Week.

One way that we can raise vocation awareness is by praying together as a people of God, asking the "Master of the Harvest to send laborers for his harvest" (Lk.10:2b). Throughout Vocations Awareness Week we are encouraged to pray for an increase of vocation in our diocese. You might consider offering a mass intention for vocations, praying a rosary for vocations, or if you know of someone that you think would be a good priest, religious or deacon, tell them. Sometimes we forget that the gifts we have are unique. A kind, unassuming word can go along way.

 

Throughout the week of November 2-9th there will be opportunities to come together and pray for vocations. In the city of Pueblo, Bishop Berg will be having a Holy Hour for Vocations at the Shrine of St. Therese on Friday, November 7th at 7:00pm. He will also conclude National Vocations Awareness Week with a Mass on November 8th at 4:00pm at the Cathedral. If you are unable to attend these events please ask your pastor "what can our parish do to raise vocations awareness?"

9/24 Serra Club Reflection: Over the course of the next few weeks, the Serra Club of Pueblo through the Office of Vocations will be offering some reflections on vocations and discernment. ... read more

" 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 ."
