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

Pastor's Column...

  From the Pastor...    St. Faustina was a Polish nun who lived from 1905-1938. She died of tuberculosis at the age of 33. Her life in the convent was uneventful and rather ordinary. She served as gardener, cook and door-keeper. Although her life was apparently insignificant and monotonous, she hid within herself an extraordinary union with God. Unbeknown to anyone but her confessors, she was endowed with a variety of mystical gifts, such as visions, bilocation, the reading of human souls, prophecy, etc. She had the wounds of Christ on her body (though they were hidden), and shared in His passion at regular intervals. She had a devotion to praying for the dead. She knew when certain members of her community were in purgatory. She would pray and offer sacrifices for them. She would often suffer on behalf of someone who was dying, that he would have a holy death. She received many such graces, which (rightly) she regarded as ornaments of the soul. She writes in her Diary: "Neither graces, nor revelations, nor raptures, nor gifts granted to a soul make it perfect, but rather the intimate union of the soul with God."
     What most attracted St. Faustina to the Lord was His mercy. She contemplated His mercy in the word of God and in her everyday activities. It formed the basis of her spirituality. The mission that Jesus gave to St. Faustina consisted reminding the world of the truth of our faith revealed in the Holy Scripture about the merciful love of God, and of entreating the Lord's mercy for the whole world and particularly for sinners, through new forms of devotion to the Divine Mercy. The forms were presented to her by the Lord Jesus. They include: His image (with the red and white rays of light emanating from His heart), with the inscription: "Jesus, I trust in you"; that there be a Feast of the Divine Mercy on the Church's calendar (designated for the second Sunday of Easter); the chaplet to the Divine Mercy and prayer at the Hour of Mercy (3:00). The Lord Jesus attached great promises to the above forms of devotion, provided one entrusted his life to God and practiced active love of neighbor.
