Campaign Prayer:

Heavenly Father, give us the grace to build your Kingdom in our Diocese. We can only accomplish this noble task by allowing You to expand our hearts.

Grant us compassionate hearts for the poor and suffering among us, hopeful hearts for the men now in seminary, grateful hearts to provide care for the well-being of our retired priests, and zealous hearts for the formation of our Catholic college students.

As we look to the future and the celebration of the Centennial of our Diocese, we want to give You our faithful hearts. It is only with faithful hearts that our Diocesan campaign will bear fruit and assist You in the building up of Your Kingdom.

With Mary our Mother, and moved by the Holy Spirit, we make this prayer through Your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We entrust our humble efforts to You, with plea for success, as we reach out to those who need us.

Amen!

Parishioners For Life—Motivating Members to Help End Abortion

Self-Sacrificing Love

Pope Benedict XVI’s encyclical “God is Love” teaches that “agape, which [is]…the typical expression for the biblical notion of love….expresses the experience of a love which involves a real discovery of the other, moving beyond the selfish character that prevailed earlier. Love now becomes concern and care for the other. No longer is it self-seeking, a sinking in the intoxication of happiness; instead it seeks the good of the beloved: it becomes renunciation and it is ready, and even willing, for sacrifice” (n. 6).

This kind of love is seen in a particular way when we care for the weak and defenseless, both born and unborn. May the Pope’s encyclical encourage us to build a culture of life!

The 2016-17 season will focus on Marian Apparitions. In May 2017, the Church will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima.
