Saint Peter Claver, Pray for Us

Oh God, who made Saint Peter Claver a slave of slaves and strengthened him with wonderful charity and patience as he came to their help, grant, through his intercession, that, seeking the things of Jesus Christ, we may love our neighbor in deeds and in truth. 
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

Prayer for Peace in Ukraine

O Prince of Peace,
Once more we hear the guns of war,
Once more we see the faces
Of frightened children.

We pray for the people of Ukraine,
That they may be granted peace;
We pray for the people of Russia,
That they may demand peace;
We pray for our country,
That we may be a positive part
Of peacemaking in this world.

O Prince of Peace,
Lead us from this dark time
To a deeper understanding
Of the global human family,
So all may break bread together
In the secure embrace of peace.

Amen.

Jane Deren, Ph.D

PRAYER IN THE TIME OF THE CORONA VIRUS

Prayer in the Time of the Corona Virus
Archbishop Gomez​

Our Lady of GuadalupeHoly Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas, we fly to you today as your beloved children.
We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana.
Pray for us, loving Mother, and gain for our nation and world, and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness.
For those already afflicted, we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.

Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears and help them to trust.
In this time of trial and testing, teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind.
Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts.
We come to you with confidence, knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother, health of the sick and cause of our joy.
Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms, help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus.
Amen.

PRAYER

Our Lady of Guadalupe Patroness of Unborn Children, We Implore Your Intercession

Virgin of Guadalupe,
Patroness of unborn children,
we implore your intercession
for every child at risk of abortion.
Help expectant parents to welcome from God
the priceless gift of their child’s life.

Console parents who have lost that gift
through abortion,
and lead them to forgiveness and healing
through the Divine Mercy of your Son.

Teach us to cherish
and to care for family and friends
until God calls them home.
Help us never to see others as burdens.

Guide our public officials
to defend each and every human life
through just laws.
Inspire us all to bring our faith into public life,
to speak for those who have no voice.

We ask this in the name of your Son,
Jesus Christ, who is Love and Mercy itself.
Amen.

DID YOU KNOW - AMUSEMENT PARK SAFETY

State outlines steps for amusement park after child hurt | WHP

Did You Know?
Heading to a family amusement park this summer? Prepare your family with some easy safety tips. Amusement parks are crowded and exciting and unfortunately, they can also be the perfect scenario for children to get distracted and separated from the family. Before you go, discuss the rules with your children: specify where they can go and who they can go with. Establish a buddy system and a family meet-up spot in case you get separated. For more tips, request a copy of the VIRTUS® article “Keeping Kids Safe at Amusement Parks” at lacatholics.org/did-you-know/.

¿Sabia Que?
Seguridad en el parque de atracciones - ¿Se dirige a un parque de diversiones familiar este verano? Prepare a su familia con algunos sencillos consejos de seguridad. Los parques de diversiones están llenos de gente y son emocionantes, y desafortunadamente también pueden ser el escenario perfecto para que los niños se distraigan y se separen de la familia. Antes de ir, discuta las reglas con sus hijos: especifique dónde pueden ir y con quién pueden ir. Establezca un sistema de amigos y un lugar de reunión familiar en caso de que se separen. Para obtener más consejos, solicite una copia del artículo de VIRTUS® “Keeping Kids Safe at Amusement Parks” (Manteniendo a los niños seguros en los parques de diversiones) en lacatholics.org/did-you-know/.

SAINT OF THE DAY

We remember, St. Isidore the Farmer

Isidore the Farm Labourer, also known as Isidore the Farmer, was a Spanish farmworker known for his piety toward the poor and animals. He is the Catholic patron saint of farmers and of Madrid, El Gobernador, Jalisco and of La Ceiba, Honduras. His feast day is celebrated on May 15.

6th Sunday of Easter

It's the 6th Sunday of Easter and the liturgical color is White.
Decorate your altar at home with a white-colored cloth, a candle, a Bible, and a Cross.


If you keep free of these,
you will be doing what is right.

Acts 15:1-2, 22-29

 

  I saw no temple in the city
for its temple is the Lord God almighty and the Lamb.
The city had no need of sun or moon to shine on it,
for the glory of God gave it light,
and its lamp was the Lamb.

Revelation 21:10-14,22-23

 

 

Whoever loves me will keep my word,
and my Father will love him,
and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
John 14:23-29
