ADVENT LITANY

Lord Jesus, you are the light of the world. Come, Lord Jesus. You are light in our darkness. Come, Lord Jesus. Son of God, save us from our sins. Come, Lord Jesus. Son of Mary, deepen our love. Come, Lord Jesus. Bring hope into the lives of all people. Come, Lord Jesus. Give your peace to all nations. Come, Lord Jesus. Be the joy of all who love you. Come, Lord Jesus. Bring unity among all who believe in you. Come, Lord Jesus. Bless us as we gather here in your name. Come, Lord Jesus. Lord Jesus, stay with us always. Come, Lord Jesus.

Let us pray:

May Christ give us his peace and joy, and let us share them with others. All peace and glory are his for ever.

Amen.


Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Patron of Never-Failing Hope
Novena Prayer to Our Lady of Perpetual Help. O Mother of Perpetual Help, you have been blessed and favored by God. You became not only the Mother of the Redeemer but the Mother of the redeemed as well. We come to you today as your loving children. Watch over us and take care of us. As you held the child Jesus in your loving arms, so take us in your arms. Be a Mother ready at every moment to help us. For God, who is mighty, has done great things for you, and His mercy is from age to age on those who love Him. Our greatest fear is that in time of temptation we may fail to call out to you and become lost children.

Intercede for us, dear Mother, in obtaining pardon for our sins. love for Jesus, final perseverance and the grace always to call upon you, Mother of Perpetual Help. Amen


Pope Francis' Prayer Intentions for December, 2017
The Elderly
 
That the elderly, sustained by families and Christian communities, may apply their wisdom and experience to spreading the faith and forming the new generations.

Beginning in 2017, the Pope will present one prepared prayer intention per month, rather than two. Should an urgent need arise, an additional intention                                             may be added.

Pope Francis will be celebrating his 82nd birthday on December 17.

2017 Christmas Schedule

Dear Parishioner,

     Once again in this Christmas season we reflect on the story of the birth of Jesus.  As we kneel before the crib, we are reminded that God so loved the world, He sent His Son into the world "that the world might be saved through Him".

     As we gather to celebrate this Christmas feast, may the Birth of Our Savior be a sign of new hope for all people and that the light of God's love will readiate in the words and deeds of all who believe in Jesus as God and Savior.

Sincerely in Christ,

Father Richard Vila

The Church Year
The liturgical year is made up of six seasons:
  • Advent - four weeks of preparation before the celebration of Jesus' birth
  • Christmas - recalling the Nativity of Jesus Christ and his manifestation to the peoples of the world
  • Lent - a six-week period of penance before Easter
  • Sacred Paschal Triduum - the holiest "Three Days" of the Church's year, where the Christian people recall the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus
  • Easter - 50 days of joyful celebration of the Lord's resurrection from the dead and his sending forth of the Holy Spirit
  • Ordinary Time - divided into two sections (one span of 4-8 weeks after Christmas Time and another lasting about six months after Easter Time), wherein the faithful consider the fullness of Jesus' teachings and works among his people

The mystery of Christ, unfolded through the cycle of the year, calls us to live his mystery in our own lives. This call is best illustrated in the lives of Mary and the Saints, celebrated by the Church throughout the year. There is no tension between the mystery of Christ and the celebration of the saints, but rather a marvelous harmony. The Blessed Virgin Mary is joined by an inseparable bond to the saving work of her Son, and the feasts of all the Saints proclaim the wonderful works of Christ in his servants and offer the faithful fitting examples for their imitation.In the feasts of the Saints the Paschal Mystery of Christ is proclaimed and renewed.
