Prayer to Our Mother of Perpetual Help

Our Mother of Perpetual Help, 

Today we face so many difficulties. You remind us to reach out and help those in need. Help us understand that our lives belong to others as much as they belong to us. Mary, Model of Christian love, we know we cannot heal every ill or solve every problem. But with God's grace, we intend to do what we can. May we be true witnesses to the world that love for one another really matters. May our daily actions proclaim how fully our lives are modeled after yours, Mother of Perpetual Help. Amen.

Thank you for your generosity

Spotlight on Saints and Observances for the Week

Saint Scholastica

February 10. Family ties and religious obligations may affect one another, but they are not necessarily opposed. Saint Scholastica’s relationship with her brother, Saint Benedict, is a good example. Close to one another as brother and sister, they also respected the Rule of Life of their respective communities.

 

Saint Apollonia

February 12. Saint Apollonia is the patron saint of dentists because her teeth were knocked out by an angry mob. Hardly the way we would wish a dentist to extract our teeth, but Saint Apollonia certainly evidenced great courage in her defiance of those who were attacking Christians.

 

Saints Cyril And Methodius

February 14. Often missionaries face the difficulties of language and culture. Saints Cyril and Methodius were no exceptions. But they faced the difficulties by writing the foreign language in a new alphabet and translating the liturgy for the local people.

 

Saint Claude De La Colombière

February 15. Saint Claude de la Colombière met Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque and eventually became her confessor. Together they advanced the devotion to the Sacred Heart at a time when God’s mercy needed emphasis. God raises the right people at the right time to keep his Church on the right path.

In The Words of Pope Francis

“Each of us is poor, needy and destitute. When we are born, we require the care of our parents to survive, and at every stage of life we remain in some way dependent on the help of others. We will always be conscious of our limitations, as “creatures”, before other individuals and situations. A frank acknowledgement of this truth keeps us humble and spurs us to practice solidarity as an essential virtue in life.” 

 

From Pope Francis
