Faith & Prayer

Dear brothers,

In 2005 at the publication of the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict wrote in his introduction “Forty years after the close of the Second Vatican Council and in the year of the Eucharist, this Compendium represents an additional resource for satisfying the hunger for truth among the Christian faithful of all ages and conditions, as well as the hunger for truth and justice among those who are without faith.” Remembering this important moment in which the Church wanted to teach us about the import truths we hold on to, we will begin our catechesis on the Eucharist taking advantage of this year on the Revival of the Eucharist, and our desire for our faithful to deepen in this eternal Sacrament Christ left us.  

The passage we are talking about gives an overview of the significance of the Eucharist in the Catholic Church, particularly in relation to the publication of the Compendium on the solemnity of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul. It emphasizes the importance of truth and justice among believers and non-believers alike.  It also highlighted the missionary zeal of the apostles and encourages followers to imitate their commitment to spreading the faith. Saying that, we will publish little by little some parts of the Catechism and give a brief explanation of. I hope you can accompany us reading and meditating on the Sacraments, so that we may have an encounter with Christ and evangelize as the apostles did.

 

This month of June in the Catholic Church is dedicated to the Devotion of the Sacred Heart of Jesus:

O most holy heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, I adore you, I love you, and with lively sorrow for my sins, I offer you this poor heart of mine. Make me humble, patient, pure and wholly obedient to your will. Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in you and for you. Amen.

Pope’s intention for June:

For migrants fleeing their homes:

We pray that migrants fleeing from war or hunger, forced to undertake journeys full of danger and violence, find welcome and new opportunities in the countries that receive them.

LET US REFLECT ON THE CONSITIUTION SACROSANCTUM CONCILIUM TO HELP US ENTER INTO THE EUCHARIST

 

Because the purpose of the office is to sanctify the day, the traditional sequence of the hours is to be restored so that once again they may be genuinely related to the time of the day when they are prayed, as far as this may be possible. Moreover, it will be necessary to take into account the modern conditions in which daily life has to be lived, especially by those who are called to labor in apostolic works. Therefore, when the office is revised, these norms are to be observed: By the venerable tradition of the universal Church, Lauds as morning prayer and Vespers as evening prayer are the two hinges on which the daily office turns; hence they are to be considered as the chief hours and are to be celebrated as such. Compline is to be drawn up so that it will be a suitable prayer for the end of the day. The hour known as Matins, although it should retain the character of nocturnal praise when celebrated in choir, shall be adapted so that it may be recited at any hour of the day; it shall be made up of fewer psalms and longer readings. The hour of Prime is to be suppressed. In choir the hours of Terce, Sext, and None are to be observed. But outside choir it will be lawful to select any one of these three, according to the respective time of the day.

PRAYER FOR THE SPREAD OF PERPETUAL ADORATION

Heavenly Father, increase our faith in the Real Presence of Your Son Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
We are obliged to adore Him, to give Him thanks and to make reparation for sins.
We need your peace in our hearts and among nations.
We need conversion from our sins and the mercy of Your forgiveness.
May we obtain this through prayer and our union with the Eucharistic Lord.
Please send down the Holy Spirit upon all peoples to give them the love, courage, strength and willingness to respond to the invitation to Eucharistic Adoration.
We beseech You to spread Perpetual Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament in parishes around the world.
We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen

Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament
Help us to spread the glory of Your Son through Perpetual Adoration.

Amen
