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.
Repeat - Lamb of God....

Pastoral Perspectives

From the Pastor...

    ...Join the Revolution
    This Sunday's gospel is the famous scene of the Last Judgment, rendered in art by Michelangelo as a fresco on the wall of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican. The scene is quite moving, especially when it is artistically rendered. Jesus is at the center of the picture, surrounded on either side by the saints, on His right, and those descending into the nether world (hell) on His left. Millions of visitors to the Vatican look at the painting. I am always amazed at the way many people seem to miss the point of it, preferring, instead to busy themselves with their cameras (and people aren't even supposed to be taking pictures). Do they really understand what they are seeing, and how it applies to them (and everyone else)?
    So what does Jesus tell us? He speaks of the Judgment being based on charity for others. "Whatever you have done unto my least brethren, you did unto me." With these words, Jesus started a revolution. What do I mean?
    Many people have listened to Jesus and taken His word to heart, on the matter of charity for others. The saints are always examples. Then, there is the Church itself. As Matthew Kelly reminds us: "Every single day the Catholic Church feeds, houses and clothes more people, takes care of more sick people, visits more prisoners, and educates more people than any other institution on the face of the earth could ever hope to" (p.13). One example: one in five patients in the U.S., today, is being treated in a Catholic hospital. (There are 637 Catholic hospitals in our country.)
    Join the revolution. Visit the sick, pray for them, pray with them.... (Make the sacraments available to them, if they are Catholic.) Help the poor. Support Immaculate Conception Charities. Be generous in designated collections. Use your ingenuity.
