First Saturday Rosary
We are pleased to bring back the First Saturday of the month Rosary. The Rosary will start at 4:00pm allowing it to be finished before the 4:30pm Mass and still have time for quiet, personal reflection. This will be an ongoing, monthly Rosary.
Every moment of prayer, especially before our Lord in the tabernacle, is a sure, positive gain. The time we spend each day sitting with God is the most precious part of the whole day.”Mother Theresa
Power in Prayer
Let’s make time to speak personally to Jesus. Join fellow church members each Wednesday from the comfort of your home, workplace, etc., in spending 10 minutes in prayer anytime day or evening. Enlist your family, a friend, or perhaps you prefer a quite place to meditate. Prayers can be formal or not, including singing or reading scripture. You could offer your work, a kind act, or make a sacrifice as your prayer. We are called to be a holy people (set aside for sacred use). As we focus our mind and heart on Jesus, He transforms us, re-creating us into the ones He designed us to be.
Apr 11th’s Intention: Oceans of Mercy
Suggested Prayer: Divine Mercy Chaplet
Prayed on the rosary. Starting at the cross, make the sign of the Cross. Next bead, pray: “O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in you.” (3 times). Then the next 3 beads, Our Father, Hail Mary, and Apostles Creed. Next pray on each of the Our Father beads: “Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.” On each of the Hail Mary beads: “For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.” After the 5 decades, conclude with: “Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.” (3 times)
Suggested Activity: Pray this daily during the Hour of Mercy, at 3:00pm – 4:00pm, perhaps for those that are critically ill or are in spiritual darkness. This prayer is especially beautiful sung. Check it out on YouTube or another source.
