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.

SAINT OF THE DAY

Today, we remember, Sts. Rufina and Secunda, Martyrs on the via Cornelia

Sts Rufina and Secunda lived in the 3rd century. They were engaged to be married, but their fiancés renounced Christ for fear of the persecutions. Rufina and Secunda then took vows of virginity. Enraged, their former fiancés denounced them as Christians. They were martyred around the year 260.

PRAYER

Saint Peter Claver, Pray for Us

Saint Peter Claver, Slave of the SlavesOh 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.

17TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME


This Sunday is the 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time and the liturgical color is GREEN.
Decorate your altar at home with a green cloth, a candle, a Bible, and a Cross.
As you live-stream or watch a broadcast of Mass, raise your voices in joyful praise and receive Jesus in Spiritual Communion.

“For thus says the LORD,
‘They shall eat and there shall be some left over.’” 
And when they had eaten, there was some left over,
as the LORD had said.
Kings 4:42-44

I, a prisoner for the Lord,
urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received,
with all humility and gentleness, with patience,
bearing with one another through love,
striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace:
one body and one Spirit,
as you were also called to the one hope of your call;
one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
one God and Father of all,
who is over all and through all and in all.
Ephesians 4:1-6

 

Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks,
and distributed them to those who were reclining,
and also as much of the fish as they wanted. 
When they had had their fill, he said to his disciples,
“Gather the fragments left over,
so that nothing will be wasted.” 
So they collected them,
and filled twelve wicker baskets with fragments 
from the five barley loaves
that had been more than they could eat. 
When the people saw the sign he had done, they said,
“This is truly the Prophet, the one who is to come into the world.”
John 6:1-15
