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....
St. John, Beloved disciple of the Lord, faithful priest. Teacher of the Lord of God. Help us to hunger for the word, to be loyal to the Mass and to love one another.

Pastoral Perspectives

From the Pastor...

     Pastor's Column
One of the people at the seminary, when I attended, was blind. What amazed me about him was that he could function quite normally. (He did use a guide dog.) He could serve Mass (without the use of the dog) and know exactly what to do, where to stand, where his seat was, and so forth. (He memorized the number of steps he had to walk.) He even decorated his room with pictures. (He used to be able to see.) He eventually went on to ordination.
     This Sunday's gospel is about a man who was born blind and through the intervention of Jesus, attained the gift of sight. Imagine never having seen before and suddenly being opened to a whole new world! We would not do justice to the story, however, if we simply limited the story to Jesus giving a man his eyesight. Whenever Jesus heals a blind person, it always has something to do with faith. Blindness, in the New Testament, is a metaphor for life without faith. We remember St. Paul, who was blinded for three days. Suddenly the scales fell from his eyes and he could see. This represented his conversion to the faith. The man born blind was converted. He met Jesus. He recognized Him as a prophet, or someone from God. Finally, he worshiped Him. The man went from someone who did not know Jesus, to a convert. Conversion, even today, is a process of coming to sight. John Newton's famous line, "I was blind, but now I see." Before he was converted, he had been a slave-trader. But, he was blind to spiritual things. We could say the same thing about Abbey Johnson who went from working for the nation's largest abortion purveyor, Planned Parenthood, to being a woman of faith. She had been blind: blind to the truth, blind to the things of God, etc. Faith opened her eyes.
