Together in Different Ways

This week, as we have always done we will ‘meet’ at our usual Mass time in our homes. We invite you to put this time aside: Saturday 5:30pm, Sunday 9:30am or 11am and share in the following. It is our hope that this feeling of togetherness will come from knowing that others are meeting at the same time.

If it suits you and your family, play some quiet music. 

Gather all those in your home, light a candle and start with the sign of the cross. 

Read through the day’s readings, (you can find the readings at usccb.org) and the weekly reflection in the newsletter. (Available online). 

 

Give yourself a chance for quiet time and personal prayer. 

 

Together, pray the Our Father and Pope Francis’ prayer to Mary during the coronavirus:

 

 

O Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm.

 

You, Salvation of Your People, know what we need, and we are sure you will provide so that, as in Cana of Galilee, we may return to joy and to feasting after this time of trial.

 

Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Amen. 

 

Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
