Ash Wednesday 2017

Ash Wednesday 2017 - Please join us in reflection on how to fast, pray and give almsgiving during this holy season of Lent. As we pray, let us remember we are one in Christ and in our prayers of intercession for others. In Jesus, we are united now and always. Persevere in prayer and gratitude. Together we embrace God by our love for Him and our neighbor.

Consecration to the Sacred Heart

Valentine's Day 2017 - As we prepare to share our love with family and friends this Valentine's Day, let us renew our consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Following is a prayer by Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque:

"I give myself and consecrate to the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ, my person and my life, my actions, pains and sufferings, so that I may be unwilling to make use of any part of my being other than to honor, love and glorify the Sacred Heart. This is my unchanging purpose, namely, to be all His, and to do all things for the love of Him, at the same time renouncing with all my heart whatever is displeasing to Him. I therefore take You, O Sacred heart, to be the only object of my love, the guardian of my life, my assurance of salvation, the remedy of my weakness and inconstancy, the atonement for all the faults of my life and my sure refuge at the hour of death.

Be then, O Heart of goodness, my justification before God the Father, and turn away from me the strokes of his righteous anger. O Heart of love, I put all my confidence in You, for I fear everything from my own wickedness and frailty, but I hope for all things from Your goodness and bounty.

Remove from me all that can displease You or resist Your holy will; let your pure love imprint Your image so deeply upon my heart, that I shall never be able to forget You or to be separated from You.

May I obtain from all Your loving kindness the grace of having my name written in Your Heart, for in You I desire to place all my happiness and glory, living and dying in bondage to You.

Amen."

May the Lord bless you and those you love with his choicest blessings this Valentine's Day and always. Amen
