St Mary Star of the Sea
Roman Catholic Church, Mississauga, Ontario
Lord, You engender the Body of the Holy Church in a way which You alone know and understand….. By means of Your Blood, You make a well-organized, well-formed Body of which You are the Head. The angels delight in its beauty, the archangels admire it, the seraphim are enraptured by it, all the angelic spirits marvel at it, and all the souls of the blessed in heaven rejoice in it. The Blessed Trinity takes delight in it in a manner beyond our comprehension.
St Mary Magdalen dei Pazzi
Quoted from Divine Intimacy, First Week After The Ephiphany, 44.
Priest: Have Mercy on us, O Lord
Response: For we have sinned against you
Priest: Show us, O Lord, your mercy.
Response: And grant us your salvation.
Also, at all Masses, we will be using the third form of the response to “The mystery of faith”: Save us, Saviour of the world, for by your cross and resurrection, you have set us free.
As usual, the devotion of praying the Stations of the Cross during Lent will happen each Friday at 7pm. Here we can meditate on the depths of God’s love for his people by sending us his only begotten Son to die on the cross for our salvation.
Finally, something new this year will be our Lenten Parish Mission. It will be preached by Fr Ben St. Croix, CC. Parish missions, especially during Lent, stir our hearts and minds to really think about how we are living a life that is open to the dynamic and creative power of the Holy Spirit.
May these days of Lent be graced filled and be assure of my prayers for you and your family.
