Lord our God, when your Son was dying on the altar of the cross, he gave us as our mother the one he had chosen to be his own mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary; grant that we who call upon the holy name of Mary, our mother, with confidence in her protection may receive strength and comfort in all our needs.

The Council will support the day-to-day administrative

Ministry of Consolation -- Bereavement Ministry

It is the goal of the community of Our Lady of the Meadows

that no member should suffer the loss of a loved one in isolation.

To that end, we are pleased to offer ongoing supportive

and pastoral services for the bereaved through the ministry of

consolation. These services include a monthly support group

on the second Thursday of each month; routine contact by

telephone and mail, as desired; assistance at funerals and receptions.

All services are free and available to parishioners or

any family member who is experiencing the loss of a loved one.

It is our hope that, through these pastoral services, those suffering

a loss may come to know the loving support of the faith community.

WHATKINDS OF PEOPLE become priests, sisters or brothers? Are they people who don't relate well with other people? No. They are people who love others - people who find real satisfaction chatting with a 93-year-old parishioner, holding the hand of a cancer patient, listening to the troubles of a streetwise teen. They are people with the courage to touch lives, hearts and souls in a high-tech, unchurched world. Are you that kind of person? Pray for "Yes" response to God's call.

Marriage Resources


MARRIAGE MOMENTS

"Love is work. It's good work, if you can get

it. But it's work, nevertheless.'' (Benjamin

Cheever) Name one thing your beloved has

done for you that you know took extra effort

on their part.

PARENTING POINTERS

Imposing a punishment is no fun for the parent

or the child. First parents must show selfdiscipline

in deciding the best action, then

execute it with loving firmness. What's your

discipline of choice - an extra chore, removal

of a privilege, time-out...?

Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship


In the weeks leading up to the election, these resources are helpful to read regarding what the US Bishops say about the election, voting and forming one's conscience. Please consider passing them on to your parishioners.

 



Jesus, I Trust in You!
 


By asking for the Lord's mercy, trusting in His mercy, and sincerely trying to live His mercy in our lives, we can assure that we will never hear Him say of us, "Their hearts are far  from Me," but rather that wonderful promise, "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy."

The Chaplet of St. Michael

O God, come to my assistance. O Lord, make haste to help me. Glory be to the Father, etc.

[Say one Our Father and three Hail Marys after each of the following nine salutations in honor of the nine Choirs of Angels]

1. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Seraphim may the Lord make us worthy to burn with the fire of perfect charity.
Amen.

2. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Cherubim may the Lord grant us the grace to leave the ways of sin and run in the paths of Christian perfection.
Amen.

3. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Thrones may the Lord infuse into our hearts a true and sincere spirit of humility.
Amen.

4. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Dominations may the Lord give us grace to govern our senses and overcome any unruly passions.
Amen.

5. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Virtues may the Lord preserve us from evil and falling into temptation. Amen.

6. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Powers may the Lord protect our souls against the snares and temptations of the devil.
Amen.

7. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Principalities may God fill our souls with a true spirit of obedience. Amen.

8. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Archangels may the Lord give us perseverance in faith and in all good works in order that we may attain the glory of Heaven.
Amen.

9. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Angels may the Lord grant us to be protected by them in this mortal life and conducted in the life to come to Heaven.
Amen.

Say one Our Father in honor of each of the following leading Angels: St. Michael, St. Gabriel, St. Raphael and our Guardian Angel.

Concluding prayers:

O glorious prince St. Michael, chief and commander of the heavenly hosts, guardian of souls, vanquisher of rebel spirits, servant in the house of the Divine King and our admirable conductor, you who shine with excellence and superhuman virtue deliver us from all evil, who turn to you with confidence and enable us by your gracious protection to serve God more and more faithfully every day.

Pray for us, O glorious St. Michael, Prince of the Church of Jesus Christ, that we may be made worthy of His promises.

Almighty and Everlasting God, Who, by a prodigy of goodness and a merciful desire for the salvation of all men, has appointed the most glorious Archangel St. Michael Prince of Your Church, make us worthy, we ask You, to be delivered from all our enemies, that none of them may harass us at the hour of death, but that we may be conducted by him into Your Presence.This we ask through the merits of
Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Amen.

POINTS TO PONDER
 

Being present at Mass -- The Liturgy of the Word

Listed below are various aspects of the Eucharistic celebration. Think

about how you might be more “present” at each of them. Think about

how your presence there might help you to truly “remember Jesus” in

your everyday life.

● We gather. We choose to be there and make an effort to be fully

present, to really pray and worship with the community.

● We sing. We think about the meaning of the words in the hymns.

● We admit our failings and ask forgiveness.

● We read a passage from the Hebrew Scriptures. We reflect on these

ancient words that Jesus himself would have studied as a child and

teen.

● We read a passage from one of the letters written by Peter, Paul,

James, or John. They are reminding us of the things they learned from

Jesus and encouraging us to live according to his teachings.

● We read a passage from the Gospels. We hear the very words of

Jesus and recall what Jesus said and did to show us that all people are

loved by his Father.

● We listen as the priest explains the Scripture readings and applies

them to our daily lives.

● We declare our faith in the teachings of Jesus and in his Church by

praying the creed with the community.

● We make an offering, a personal monetary gift that will be used to

support the Church in doing the work that Jesus did.

● We pray for the needs of the world, of the church, and of the people

in our own parish family.

 

Being present at Mass from Preparation of gifts to Sending Forth

● We offer bread and wine to God, and ask God to accept these simple

gifts as signs of our love. We ask the Holy Spirit to transform the

bread and wine -- and to transform us into true disciples.

● We listen as the priest, the official representative of Jesus and of the

Church, says the sacred words that Jesus said at the Last Supper:

“Take and eat, this is my body. Take and drink, this is my blood. Do

this to rememberance me.”

● We bow in adoration as the priest holds up the consecrated bread

and wine, transformed now into the Body and Blood of Jesus.

● We sing together the Great Amen, declaring to the whole world that

we believe in the mystery of God’s love, and of God’s presence to us

here in the Eucharist.

● We join hands and pray the Our Father, the prayer that Jesus himself

taught us and remember that he is here now praying with us and

through us.

● We turn to one another with a handshake or hug, offering the peace

of Christ to those who are sharing the Eucharist with us, especially

our own families.

● We walk up in procession; we hold out our hands (or put out our

tongue), asking for the sacred bread. We say “Amen” as a sign of our

faith, and we receive the sacred Body and Blood of Jesus in Holy

Communion.

● We spend quiet time in prayer, deepening our love for Jesus who is

truly living within us, and renewing our commitment to him and to his

people.

● We stand and sing a closing hymn, thinking about the meaning of

the words.

● We go in peace to love and serve the Lord. We carry Jesus home

with us in our hearts, making real efforts to remember him and to live

his message of love in our little corner of the world.

● We look for ways to love and serve others as Jesus did -- especially

the poor, sick, hungry, lonely, and those that no one else notices and

cares about.


  

September is the Month of the Seven Sorrows of Mary

And thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that, out of many hearts thoughts may be revealed.

CHAPLET OF THE SEVEN SORROWS OF MARY

This devotion, instituted in the course of the thirteenth century, honors the Sorrows endured by the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is recited on a Rosary comprised of seven decades containing seven beads in each decade. Each decade of seven is divided from the rest by medals representing the seven principal sorrows of Her life.

The chaplet is said by offering a Hail Mary on each of the beads, with an Our Father each seven Hail Mary's. Completion of the chaplet requires three Hail Mary's at the end in honor of the sorrowful tears of Our Lady.

First Sorrow:

Reflect on the sorrow of Our Blessed Lady, when She presented Her Divine Child in the Temple and heard from the aged Simeon that a sword of grief would pierce Her soul.

Second Sorrow:

Reflect on Her sorrow when, to escape the cruelty of King Herod, She was forced to fly into Egypt with St. Joseph and Her Beloved Child. Pray for those who kill children today by abortion.

Third Sorrow:

Reflect on Her grief when, in returning from Jerusalem, She found that She had lost Her dear Jesus, Whom She sought for three days.

Fourth Sorrow:

Reflect on Her meeting Her divine Son, all bruised and bleeding, carrying His Cross to Calvary, and seeing Him fall under its heavy weight.

Fifth Sorrow:

Reflect on Her standing by, when Her Divine Son was lifted up on the Cross and the blood flowed in streams from His Sacred Wounds.

Six Sorrow:

Reflect on Her sorrow, when Her Divine son was taken down from the Cross, and placed in Her arms.

Seven Sorrow:

Reflect on Her following His Sacred Body as it was borne by Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus to the sepulcher.

The Culture of Life

 

How can we protect our children when we don't respect life?

Mother Teresa  I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts.--Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God, obeying his voice, and holding fast to him. For that will mean life for you, a long life for you to live on the land which the LORD swore to your ancestors, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give to them. Dt 30:19-20

Let us Pray: Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

LOVE is to will the good of the other.

 

Whom you would change, you must first love
and they must know that you love them.
Martin Luther King

ONLINE EDUCATION

The Diocese of Pueblo continues its partnership with the University of Dayton to offer online courses in theology and spirituality. Most of the courses last five weeks and cost $50. Those interested in taking one of these courses can select from over 70 topics offered by the University of Dayton. Anyone new to online education might want to begin with some of their basic courses first.  A few of these include: Bible Basics, Catholic Beliefs, and Images of Jesus. People who have more experience with theology workshops or online courses might also consider: Introduction to Scripture, Introduction to Christian Morality, Survey of Catholic Doctrine, or one of their many other courses.

Anyone interested in taking one of these courses is encouraged to explore the University of Dayton’s website at vlc.udayton.edu. The next cycle of classes begins August 28 and lasts until October 1. Registration opened July 13. Any questions regarding registration or reimbursement can be referred to Sister Betty Werner via e-mail at bwerner@dioceseofpueblo.org

 

 

" Above all, let your love for one another be intense, because love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining.  As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen ."
-- 1 Peter 4:8-11
