Family Prayer
oving and faithful God, through
the years the people of our archdiocese have appreciated the
prayers and love of Our Lady of Prompt
Succor in times of war, disaster, epidemic and illness. We come to you,
Father, with Mary our Mother, and ask
you to help us in the battle of today
against violence, murder and racism.
We implore you to give us your wisdom
that we may build a community founded on the values of Jesus, which gives
respect to the life and dignity of all people.
Bless parents that they may form their
children in faith. Bless and protect our
youth that they may be peacemakers of
our time. Give consolation to those who
have lost loved ones through violence.
Hear our prayer and give us the perseverance to be a voice for life and human dignity in our community.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to
help us.
Mother Henriette Delille, pray for us
that we may be a holy family.

Make straight the way for God with in,
Prepare we in our hearts a home,
Where such a mighty guest may come.

Creator of the Stars of Night
1. Creator of the stars of night,
Your people's everlas ng light,
O Christ, Redeemer of us all,
We pray you hear us when we call.
2. In sorrow that the ancient curse
Should doom to death a universe,
You came, O Savior, to set free
Your own in glorious liberty.
3. When this old world drew on toward
night,
You came; but not in splendor bright,
Not as a monarch, but the child
Of Mary, blameless mother mild.
“God is rich in mercy . . .” Ephesians 2:4
4. At your great Name, O Jesus, now
All knees must bend, all hearts must bow:
All things on earth with one accord,
Like those in heav'n, shall call you Lord.
5. Come in your holy might, we pray,
Redeem us for eternal day;
Defend us while we dwell below
From all assaults of our dread foe.
6. To God Creator, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,
Praise, honor, might and glory be
From age to age eternally.

Enthronement of the Sacred Heart
“In the tender compassion of our God, the dawn from
on high shall break upon us, to shine on those who
dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, and to
guide our feet into the way of peace.” Luke1:78-79
This week we anticipate with joy the coming of the
New Dawn – Jesus, the Prince of Peace. When the
infant Jesus was born, He came into a world torn with
strife. The promised Messiah arrived to set His people
free as promised. But most did not understand, they
thought He was bringing them an earthly kingdom.
He came instead to bring them an everlasting kingdom. We live in a time when we too need a messenger of peace. But He has never left us; He points to
His mother- the Bright Morning Star and says to us,
“Follow her, pattern your life on hers and I will bring
you home.”
The Promoters of the Sacred Heart Apostolate wish
you and your families all the blessings of the Christ
Child.

Entronización del Sagrado Corazón
"En la tierna compasión de nuestro
Dios, el amanecer de alto deberá
romper sobre nosotros, para iluminar
a los que moran en la oscuridad y la
sombra de la muerte y para guiar
nuestros pies en el camino de la paz".
Lucas 1:78-79 esta semana esperamos con alegría la
llegada del Nuevo Amanecer – Jesús, Príncipe de la
Paz. Cuando nació el niño Jesús, él entró en un mundo
desgarrado por la lucha. El Mesías prometido llegó para
establecer su pueblo libre como se había prometido.
Pero la mayoría no entendía, pensaron que les iba a
traer un reino terrenal. En su lugar vino a traer un reino
eterno. Vivimos en una época cuando necesitamos
también un mensajero de la paz. Pero Él nunca se ha
ido. El señala hacia su madre - la brillante estrella de la
mañana y nos dice, "Seguidla, haz un patrón de tu vida
como la de ella y te traeré a casa".
Los Promotores del Apostolado del Sagrado Corazón le
desean a usted y a su familia todas las bendiciones del
Niño Jesús.
Se necesitan voluntarios!
