Novena Prayer to St. Therese

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Ave Maria Meditations:

86b4ccec25afce29c2e21fafdccd3d06[1]

O St. Therese of the Child Jesus, who during your short life on earth became a mirror of angelic purity, of love strong as death, and of wholehearted abandonment to God, now that you rejoice in the reward of your virtues, cast a glance of pity on me as I leave all things in your hands.

Make my troubles your own, speak a word for me to Our Lady Immaculate, whose flower of special love you were to that Queen of Heaven “who smiled on you at the dawn of life.” Beg her powerful intercession the grace I yearn for so ardently at this moment… 

(State your intention here….) 

and that she join with it a blessing that may strengthen me during life, defend me at the hour of death, and lead me straight on to a happy eternity. Amen.

O God, who did inflame with the Spirit of Love, the soul of Your servant Therese of the Child Jesus, grant that we also may love You and make You much loved. Amen.

Sep 30 – Homily – Fr Maximilian W: Pray the Rosary for Peace

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014
Click to Play

Homily #140930n ( 05min) Play – Father Maximilian comments on the Gospel, and tells us that we are not to call down curses on our enemies, but to call down God’s graces through prayer. And as Our Lady has asked repeatedly, by the prayer of the Rosary. By this meditative prayer over the mysteries of Scripture, we learn our faith “through our knees” and call down the peace of God. Father also announces that Our Lady’s Chapel in New Bedford, Mass. will have a special Rosary for Peace (especially in response to the tensions over Ukraine and the growing threat of Islamic violence) followed by Benediction every night at 7:00pm (6:00pm on Sunday) for the month of October, the month of the Rosary. We invite all to come and pray with us, or to unite your prayers to ours from afar if you are not able to join us.

St.Michael, the Archangel: Defend Us in Battle!

Monday, September 29th, 2014

Ave Maria Meditations

archangel-michael-holy-card

Original Prayer to St. Michael by Pope Leo XIII: “O Glorious Prince of the heavenly host, St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the battle and in the terrible warfare that we are waging against the principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, against the evil spirits. Come to the aid of man, whom Almighty God created immortal, made in His own image and likeness, and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of Satan.

“Fight this day the battle of the Lord, together with the holy angels, as already thou hast fought the leader of the proud angels, Lucifer, and his apostate host, who were powerless to resist thee, nor was there place for them any longer in Heaven. That cruel, ancient serpent, who is called the devil or Satan who seduces the whole world, was cast into the abyss with his angels. Behold, this primeval enemy and slayer of men has taken courage.

Transformed into an angel of light, he wanders about with all the multitude of wicked spirits, invading the earth in order to blot out the name of God and of His Christ, to seize upon, slay and cast into eternal perdition souls destined for the crown of eternal glory. This wicked dragon pours out, as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, and of every vice and iniquity. “These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions.

Homily #140929n ( 11min) Play – Father Matthias shows us the importance of having recourse to St. Michael by pulling from the words and actions of the modern Popes. Let us call upon St. Michael to defend us from sin and evil, from that which is outside of us and especially that which is inside of us. We cannot overcome evil with evil, but only with good!

Homily #140928b ( 19min) Play – Fr. Louis Maximilian explains that God displays His power through His mercy. This is in counter-distinction to our human notion of power where greatness is shown by exerting raw power and enforcing strict justice. Yet, God’s mercy does not countermand justice but rather effects true renewal, a true justification of those who need mercy.
