  •          ADORATION

    12 CHURCH TEACHINGS that explain the importance and need to spend a weekly hour with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

    7.)  If the Pope himself would give you a special invitation to visit him in the Vatican, this honor would be nothing in comparison to the honor and dignity that Jesus Himself bestows upon you with the invitation of spending one hour a week with Him in the Blessed Sacrament. “The Divine Eucharist bestows on the Christian people an incomparable dignity.”
    (Art. 68) Pope Paul VI, Mysterium Fidei.
     
    8.) Day and night Jesus dwells in the Blessed Sacrament because you are the most important person in the world to Him! “Beneath the appearance of the species, Christ is contained, the invisible Head of the Church, the Redeemer of the World, the Center of all hearts.  From this it follows that the worship paid to the Divine Eucharist strongly impels the soul to cultivate a 'social' love.”
     
    9.)  The best time you spend on earth is with your Best Friend, Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament!  "How great is the value of converse with Christ (in the Blessed Sacrament), for there is nothing more consoling on earth, nothing more efficacious for advancing  along the road of holiness."   (Art. 70) Pope Paul VI, Mysterium Fidei.

                         To be continued.

  •     An Act of Spiritual                 Communion

    My Jesus I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. 
    I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. 
    Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least
    spiritually into my heart. 
    I embrace You as if You were already there and
    unite myself wholly to You.  Never permit me to be separated from you.  
     Amen.

  •   Pastoral Council News

    PASTORAL COUNCIL MEETING
    Cancelled until further notice.

    The next regular meeting for the Pastoral Council of St. Gregory the Great will be held at
    6:30 pm, 23 March 2020 in Mary's House
    (Senior Center).  This is an open meeting and all parishioner are welcome to attend. 
    The meeting will stress the need to promote our parish, begin planning the recruitment of new members in May and the election of officers also in May.  

    PASTORAL COUNCIL SUPPORT 

    We will enter into a new Pastoral Council calendar year and need to work on our purpose and resolve for the year.  We serve the parish as an advisory group to Fr. Rudy with a primary focus to assist and support ministries in whichever way we can. The ultimate goal of parish life is to take a fresh look at its many aspects and shape them in ways that will bring people closer to the Lord.

    PROMOTE OUR PARISH

       We must promote our parish, build-up our image in a way that will attract new parishioners and/or increase attendance. Attracting young parents could have the potential of a positive effect on school enrollments. One way is by word-of-mouth and another way would be to submit information about our parish to Today's Catholic for publication.

  •        Divine Mercy

    Eucharistic Apostles of the Divine Mercy

    “Mercy is love that seeks to lessen
    the misery of others”

    I feel certain that my mission will not come to an end upon my death, but will begin.  O doubting souls, I will draw aside for you the veils of heaven to convince you of God's goodness so that you will no longer continue to wound with your distrust the sweetest Heart of Jesus.  God is Love and Mercy.  (Diary of St. Faustina, 281)

    For study:  Sunday, Mar 15 and
    Apr 15, 2020, 2:30 p.m.,
    Mary’s House (Senior Center, 720 Beryl).  
    All that is needed is a Bible, Catechism of the Catholic Church and The Diary of St. Faustina, “Divine Mercy in My Soul”.

    Spiritual Works: Saturday, March 14th and
    Mar 28th , 2020, 11:00 a.m. in the Adoration Chapel.   We pray for the sick and the dying.
