Our Lady Of Knock Chapel

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Give praise to the Father Almighty. To His Son, Jesus Christ the Lord. To the Spirit who lives in our hearts, Both now and forever. Amen.

Our Lady of Knock, Queen of Ireland, you gave hope to your people in a time of distress and comforted them in sorrow. You have inspired countless pilgrims to pray with confidence to your divine Son, remembering His promise, "Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find."

Help me to remember that we are all pilgrims on the road to heaven. Fill me with love and concern for my brothers and sisters in Christ, especially those who live with me. Comfort me when I am sick, lonely and depressed. Teach me how to take part every more reverently in the Holy Mass. Give me a greater love of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Pray for me now and at the hour of my death. Amen.

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; grant us peace.
St Joseph, Chosen by God to be the husband of Mary, the protector of the Holy Family, the guardian of the Church. Protect all families in their work and recreation and guard us on our journey through life. Repeat - Lamb of God....

Pastoral Perspectives

From the Pastor...

    What is the meaning of "and lead us not into temptation?" The petition means both: "Do not allow us to enter into temptation," and "do not let us yield to temptation." Why should we be concerned about temptation? Because our sins result from our consent to temptation. (We must distinguish between being tempted and consenting to temptation.) What are the sources of temptation for us? The world, the flesh, and the devil. The world means the anti-Christian influences that saturate the air we breathe (e.g., the influence of peers, writers, television shows, entertainment, etc.). The world tends to be full of itself. The flesh is not limited to sexuality, but includes anger, gluttony, covetousness, etc. The devil is often the most difficult one to detect because he generally hides himself. A directly diabolical temptation is strong (scary or seductive), and often out of character for the person subjected to it. The devil has an easy time with many people (he doesn't have to do much) because they live at the level of the flesh (self-gratification) or they are overly influenced by the world. When the world and the flesh are held at bay ("holiness"), Satan can show his displeasure by physical assaults (St. John Bosco, St. John Vianney, et al.).
    Why would the Lord allow us to be tempted? (Note, He Himself tempts no one.) We can learn where our weaknesses are. Also, it gives us a chance to demonstrate that we want Him and we will not allow anything or anyone to take His place. "No one can serve two masters." Besides, earthly life is a time of trial. Heaven is something that must be chosen.
