Advent Day of Prayer

Here are some thoughts from the Advent Day of Prayer conducted by Fr. Marek on Monday of the Third week of Advent. The theme of our mediation is “Gaudete in Domino semper”. 

“Rejoice in the Lord always” reads the opening antiphon for the 3 Sunday  of Advent Mass. Yes, yesterday we celebrated the Rejoice Sunday. As you have noticed, in order to remind the people that they were preparing for the very joyful occasion of the birth of Jesus, the celebrant wore “rose” vestments yesterday and we lit the rose candle on the advent wreath. We expressed our joy in the coming of Jesus, our savior.

Our Lady of the Rosary

rosaryDo you pray the Rosary?  The month of October is dedicated to the Blessed Mother of the Rosary. The Rosary is a beautiful and popular prayer. Blessed Mother often requested that we pray the Rosary.

This prayer is based on the life of Jesus and Mary. It begins with the Apostles’ Creed, which summarizes the great mysteries of the Catholic faith. The Our Father, which introduces each mystery, is from the Gospels. The first part of the Hail Mary is the angel’s words announcing Christ’s birth and Elizabeth’s greeting to Mary. St. Pius V officially added the second part of the Hail Mary.The Mysteries of the Rosary center on the events of Christ’s life. There are four sets of Mysteries: Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious and–added by Pope John II in 2002–the Luminous.

The repetition in the Rosary is meant to lead us into contemplative prayer related to each Mystery. “The gentle repetition of the words helps us to enter into the silence of our hearts, where Christ’s spirit dwells”.

LD Almighty God, you have so linked our lives one with another that all we do affects, for good or ill, all other lives: So guide us in the work we do, that we may do it not for self alone, but for the common good; and, as we seek a proper return for our own labor, make us mindful of the rightful aspirations of other workers, and arouse our concern for those who are out of work. Amen.

Novena – week 3rd

Words of John Paul II:

Through the communion of persons which occurs in marriage, a man and a woman begin a family.

In affirming that the spouses, as parents, cooperate with God the Creator in conceiving and giving birth to a new human being, we are not speaking merely with reference to the laws of biology. Instead, we wish to emphasize that God himself is present in human fatherhood and motherhood…  Indeed, God alone is the source of that “image and likeness” which is proper to the human being, as it was received at Creation. Begetting is the continuation of Creation. Continue reading “Novena – week 3rd” »
