OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE FEAST

Zec 2: 14-17 or

Rev 11: 19a; 12: 1-6a, 10ab;

Jdt 13: 18bcde, 19

Lk 1: 26-38 or

Lk 1: 139-47

To form the lay-religious who could connect the work of sanctification to that of the apostolate is a double difficulty; we find ore easily one who only does one thing or the other (CISP, p 355).

PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR DECEASED: Sr Callista De Michelis PD (1988)–Sr M Romana Battistella FSP (1996)–Sr M Dolores Bonfe FSP (1999)–Sr M Leonia Nota FSP (1999)–Teresa De Maria IAM (2006)–Sr M Jolanda Furukawa PD (2011)–Sr M Teresita Conti FSP (2014)–Mario Baio HFI (2015).

ST LUKE THE EVANGELIST

2 Tim 4: 10-17

Ps 145: 10-18

Form an organization, but a religious one; where efforts would coalesce, dedication would be total and the doctrine purer (AD 24).

Heaven Is Forever

Day 3

Heaven will never end; it is eternal. Our homeland is heaven.

It will be a day without sunset, youth without old age,

joy undisturbed by the fear of suffering. Heaven is the one

and only true treasure, and ours forever! We shall have

more courage if we think of it.

Blessed James Alberione

 

Wonder: How can I value heaven more?

Deepen: From the  Scriptures: Where your treasure is, there

your heart shall be.

Matthew 6:21

 

Decide:

 

If I fail you,

O Lord,

I will trust in your mercy.

 

O My Jesus,

in heaven I will sing

the praises of your mercy doubly

because you have given me gifts

and though I may have wasted them,

you had mercy on me

and gave me other gifts.

May your name

always be praised.

Amen.
