HUNKERED BUT NOT CONQUERED- DAY 75

Spiritually Speaking:  Lectio Eucharist Study

Dear brothers and sisters,

I am pleased to bring to your attention this important study currently running virtually in our parish. It is based off the FORMED program which is excellent FREE resource that we can access online to enrich our faith while we are hunkered down. This study is called Lectio Eucharist.

The Eucharist is the center-point of the Mass – but why?

“The Lamb of God,” “The Bread of Life,” “The Body and the Blood of Christ” … these are phrases we know from the Mass. But do we understand what they mean in the greater and deeper context of Scripture and Church teaching? Acclaimed author and teacher Dr. Brant Pitre rigorously digs down to the biblical roots of the Eucharist, through its foreshadowing in the miraculous events of the Old Testament, the Gospels, and Apostolic teaching. We’ll discover firsthand how Christ’s Body and Blood are an integral and wondrous part of God’s plan for our salvation. In ten sessions, he will open Scripture to deepen our understanding of the mystery and wonder that is the Eucharist – and how it will transform your life.

 Topics Include:

  • Why is the Eucharist Central to the Mass?
  • The Eucharist in the Garden of Eden?
  • The Lamb of God in The Old Testament
  • The Passover Lamb
  • Bread from The Sky
  • Food for The Body & Soul
  • Water & Wine
  • What Is the Real Presence?
  • A New Passover
  • The Mystery of the Eucharist
  • The End of The World

 

FORMED St, Mary’s Facebook group is currently studying Lectio Eucharist with the goal of being completed by Corpus Christi Sunday.  It’s not too late to join and we welcome reflections in this discussion forum.  People can watch one session a day and easily be finished on time.  To join the study group simply go to FORMED.org and follow the steps below:

1.Visit FORMED.org

2 Click Sign Up

3.Select “I Belong to a Parish or Organization”

4.Find your parish by name, zip, or parish code

5.Enter your email – and you’re in

 

Thank you as you join us to enrich your faith. Stay safe, stay hopeful and stay blessed.

Yours in the Eucharistic Lord.

Fr. Cosmas

Coronavirus Novena Prayers Day 9

Intercessor: Mary Undoer of Knots

Intentions: For all in various types of difficulties due to the pandemic.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Scripture Reading: Matthew 9:18-26

Jesus raised the ruler’s daughter from the dead

While he was saying this, a synagogue leader came and knelt before him and said, “My daughter has just died. But come and put your hand on her, and she will live.”

Jesus got up and went with him, and so did his disciples.  Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak.

 She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.”  Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.

When Jesus entered the synagogue leader’s house and saw the noisy crowd and people playing pipes, he said, “Go away.

The girl is not dead but asleep.” But they laughed at him. After the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took the girl by the hand, and she got up. News of this spread through all that region.

The Gospel of the Lord: Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.

Novena Prayer

Father in Heaven, have mercy on us and on the whole world. We come to you today with our fears and concerns — You know what’s in our hearts. 

We love You, trust You, we need You. We ask You to be with us. Stay with us. Help us through these times of uncertainty and sorrow. We know you are the Divine Physician, the healer of all. 

And so we ask that you bring your loving and healing presence to all those who are sick and suffering right now.

Please comfort them. Please be with the grieving families of those who have passed away. 

Please have mercy on those who have died, may they be with You in heaven. 

Please stand at the side of all medical professionals who are putting themselves at risk while they work to bring healing to others.

Lord, we are scared and we are sorrowful. Please heal us. Send us your peace and overwhelming presence.  (Mention your intentions here)

Mary, Undoer of Knots, please pray for the knot of this virus to be undone for the greater glory of God! Jesus, we thirst for You.

 You chose to enter this world as a vulnerable baby. Be with the most vulnerable now. 

Help us to continue to return to You with our whole hearts throughout this ordeal.  Amen. 

Our Father…….

Hail Mary……..

Glory be ………

We Fly to your patronage

We fly to your patronage, O holy Mother of God; despise not our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin Mary. Amen

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

“O God, be gracious and bless us and let your face shed its light upon us”

Coronavirus Novena Prayers Day 8

 

Intercessor: ST. FRANCES XAVIER CABRINI

Intentions: For the sick and suffering among us.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Scripture Reading: Matthew 8:5-13

Jesus healed the centurion’s servant

When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.” Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?” The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof.

But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.

I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.

But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment.

The Gospel of the Lord: Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.

Novena Prayer

Father in Heaven, have mercy on us and on the whole world. We come to you today with our fears and concerns — You know what’s in our hearts. 

We love You, trust You, we need You. We ask You to be with us. Stay with us. Help us through these times of uncertainty and sorrow.

We know you are the Divine Physician, the healer of all. And so we ask that you bring your loving and healing presence to all those who are sick and suffering right now.

Please heal us. Send us your peace and overwhelming presence.  (Mention your intentions here) St.

Frances Xavier Cabrini, you founded hospitals dedicated to caring for the sick, pray for us!

Jesus, we thirst for You. You chose to enter this world as a vulnerable baby. Be with the most vulnerable now. Help us to continue to return to You with our whole hearts throughout this ordeal.  Amen. 

Our Father…….

Hail Mary……..

Glory be ………

We Fly to your patronage

We fly to your patronage, O holy Mother of God; despise not our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin Mary. Amen
