TRAVELER’S PRAYER

(Before starting a Journey)
O Almighty and merciful God,
who hast commissioned Thy angels to guide
and protect us,
command them to be our assiduous
companions
from our setting out until our return;
to clothe us with their invisible protection;
to keep from us all danger of collision,
of fire, of explosion, of fall and bruises,
and finally, having preserved us from all evil,
and especially from sin,
to guide us to our heavenly home.
Through Jesus Christ,
our Lord.

 OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL HELP

Patron of:  Never-failing Hope

Novena Prayer to Our Lady of Perpetual Help

O Mother of Perpetual Help,

you have been blessed and favored by God.

You became not only the

Mother of the Redeemer but the Mother of the

redeemed as well.  We come to you today as your 

loving children.  Watch over us and take care of us.

As you held the child Jesus in your loving arms,

so take us in your arms.  Be a Mother ready

at every moment to help us.  For God, who is mighty,

has done great things for you, and His mercy is

from age to age on those who love Him.

Our greatest fear is that in time of temptation we

may fail to call out to you and become lost

children.  Intercede for us, dear Mother,

in obtaining pardon for our sins. love for Jesus,

final persererance and the grace always to call

upon you, Mother of Perpetual Help. Amen

 


THE CHURCH YEAR

The liturgical year is made up of six seasons:

  • Advent - four weeks of preparation before the celebration of Jesus' birth
  • Christmas - recalling the Nativity of Jesus Christ and his manifestation to the peoples of the world
  • Lent - a six-week period of penance before Easter
  • Sacred Paschal Triduum - the holiest "Three Days" of the Church's year, where the Christian people recall the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus
  • Easter - 50 days of joyful celebration of the Lord's resurrection from the dead and his sending forth of the Holy Spirit
  • Ordinary Time - divided into two sections (one span of 4-8 weeks after Christmas Time and another lasting about six months after Easter Time), wherein the faithful consider the fullness of Jesus' teachings and works among his people

The mystery of Christ, unfolded through the cycle of the year, calls us to live his mystery in our own lives. This call is best illustrated in the lives of Mary and the Saints, celebrated by the Church throughout the year. There is no tension between the mystery of Christ and the celebration of the saints, but rather a marvelous harmony. The Blessed Virgin Mary is joined by an inseparable bond to the saving work of her Son, and the feasts of all the Saints proclaim the wonderful works of Christ in his servants and offer the faithful fitting examples for their imitation.In the feasts of the Saints the Paschal Mystery of Christ is proclaimed and renewed.
