We strive to love God and love our neighbor as ourselves by gratefully sharing our many gifts from God

Statue of Our Lady of the Meadows

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.

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

Our Lady of the Meadows has received the following from the
VICAR GENERAL
of the Diocese of Pueblo

The Diocese is currently crippled in not having a good communication tool for getting into Diocesan households.  As a consequence, valuable information is not being received. 

 

Please be sure that appropriate information found in the Blast is passed on via the Church bulletin or newsletter - particularly at point are Official Clergy Appointments, Diocesan Workshops, Job Openings, Diocesan Events, or other pertinent items that are deemed appropriate.

 

The absence of a Diocesan newspaper leaves a significant vacuum in connectedness for our far-flung Diocese.  Hopefully, we will find a good solution to the problem in the not-too-distant future.  Not having a good tool for communication also allows inaccurate rumors to fly.  Those receiving the Blast are the leaders of our Diocese.  Please feel free (even obligated) to get accurate information.  I am available for inquiry - my secrets are few.

 

With regard to Clergy Appointments, those Clergy assignments that have been announced and those to be announced soon have been done because of necessity with the greatest care and pastoral sensitivity that could be mustered.

 

In response to this, excerpts from the weekly "Blast" email letter to Clergy and Staffs will be posted here for your information. Click on the underlined links to go to a specific entry or click here to go to the entire web page.

Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

September 28, 2014

Do nothing out of selfishness or out of vainglory;
rather, humbly regard others as more important than yourselves,
each looking out not for his own interests,
but also for those of others.

Have in you the same attitude
that is also in Christ Jesus, ...  
 Phil 2:3-5

 


Exaltation of the Holy Cross

Collect: God our Father, in obedience to you, your only Son accepted death on the cross for the salvation of mankind. We acknowledge the mystery of the cross on earth. May we receive the gift of redemption in heaven. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


PEACE & JUSTICE

Remember to pray for peace every day at noon.
 

Neither should it ever happen that once more the avenues to peaceful change are blocked by usupers who seek to take power away from the people, in pursuit of their own, ignoble purposes.

Nelson Mandela, Civil rights activist, former president of South Africa and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize

" 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 ."
