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, St. Joseph of Cupertino, Franciscan

He was an Italian Conventual Franciscan friar who is honored as a Christian mystic and saint. He was said to have been remarkably unclever, but prone to miraculous levitation and intense ecstatic visions that left him gaping.

The Virtuous Girl — Each morning, start your day with Jesus. Stay with...
Right after you wake up,
thank Jesus for three things from the previous day.
Just before you eat lunch, ask Jesus for the grace you need to do everything you need to do at school or work or home.
As you get into bed to go to sleep, tell Jesus about any sins you committed during the day and ask Him to forgive you.

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.

29TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME


This Sunday is the 29th 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.

If he gives his life as an offering for sin,
he shall see his descendants in a long life,
and the will of the LORD shall be accomplished through him.
Isaiah 53:10-11 

Jesus, the Son of God,
let us hold fast to our confession.
For we do not have a high priest
who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses,
but one who has similarly been tested in every way,
yet without sin.
Hebrews 4:14-16

 

“For the Son of Man did not come to be served
but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Mark 10:35-45
