Spiritual Exercises for Lent:Day 18

Spiritual Exercises for Lent:Day 18

Prepare well for the Confession. Frequent Confession is like a shower for your soul, cleansing you completely, giving you healing and freedom from sin. Frequent Confession is like a petrol for your soul, it keeps you going through the rough roads of our lives. Sacrament of the Reconciliation is a superb grace. It is a big “SORRY” said to our Father in Heaven every time we do wrong, every time we fail or disappoint God, every time we fail to keep His Commandments.

A guide  for good confession:

  • If you need help especially if you have been away for some time simply ask the priest and he will help you by “walking” you through the steps to make a good confession.
  • Be truly sorry for your sins, ask God for the Holy Spirit to help you to examine your conscience, best way is to go through 10 Commandments and see if you kept them or not.
  • Remember that it is really Jesus who gives you forgiveness through priest
  • Always tell the priest your state of life: married or single, priest or religious, under religious vows or promises

Give us, O Lord, as much a lasting fear as a lasting love of Your Holy Name, for You, who live and are King for ever and ever, never fail to govern those whom You have solidly established in Your love. R. Amen.

O Gloriosa Domina

                                  Jesus, Son of Mary www.thecalltofatima.com             O GLORIOSA DOMINA

                                       Hail most high, most humble one!

                                       Above the world; below thy Son,

                                       Whose blush the moon beauteously mars

                                       And stains the timorous light of stars.

                                       He that made all things, had not done,

                                       Till He had made Himself thy son.

                                       The whole world’s Host would be thy guest

                                       And board Himself at thy rich breast.

                                       O boundless hospitality!

                                       The Feast of all things feeds on thee.

                                       Let hearts and lips speak loud and say

                                       Hail door of life and source of day!

                                       The door was shut, the fountain sealed;

                                       Yet light was seen and life revealed.

                                       The door was shut, yet let in day,

                                       The fountain sealed, yet life found way.

                                       Glory to Thee, great virgin’s Son,

                                       In bosom of thy Father’s bliss.

                                       The same to Thee, sweet Spirit be done.

                                       As ever shall be, was and is.

                                                                         (Richard Crashaw 1612-1649)

The Call to Fatima Triduum 2011

Call to Fatima Triduum in St Mary's of the Angels, 7-9th Oct 2011

“The Call to Fatima” triduum in honour of Our Lady of the Rosary will take place at St Mary of the Angels Church, Dublin 7 on Friday 7th, Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th October 2011.

Three days of prayer will emphasize the importance of the Fatima Message for our times, bringing along several experts on this topic. Triduum is organised in honour of Our Lady of the Rosary, feast day officially celebrated around the world on 7th October. It was in Fatima, Portugal, where the Virgin Mary stated, that she is the Lady of the Rosary to Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco. Our Lady of Fatima was especially loved by Saint Padre Pio, who is a patron saint of St Mary of the Angels Church, run by Irish Capuchin Franciscans.

The key guest speakers are coming from around the world, including Fr Andrew Apostoli, Franciscan of the Renewal, New York, USA, Sister Angela Coelho, the Vice-Postulator for Blessed Jacinta and Francisco Marto, Fatima, Portugal, Doctor Branca Paul, the private physician of last visionary Sister Lucia, Coimbra, Portugal, Soprano Singer Louise Irvine from Northern Ireland and The Call to Fatima film producer & director Dubliner Thomas McCormack.

During the Triduum the faithful will have the opportunity to view an exhibition of the Relics, those of Saint Padre Pio, Saint Teresa of Liseux (Little Flower), Saint Anthony, Blessed Francisco and Jacinta and many more.  Masses will be scheduled as usual. Confessions, Music, Adoration and talks by guest speakers will take place over the three days.

All are very welcome, especially youth and families, as well as different international community’s who have come to make their home in Ireland.

Repay Love with Love!

“The work of creation is a work of love. God created us out of love. Like a father, He guides our steps along the paths of life. You shall therefore love the Lord your God, and keep his charge, his statutes, his ordinances and his commandments always.(Dt 11, 1-2)

It was love that moved God to create us, to redeem us by sending his Son, who offered Himself as a victim of expiation to be paid on our behalf, in order to make reparation for our sins. If God had not loved us, we would not exist; we should have remained in nothingness. Hence, it is our duty, in gratitude, in appreciation, in justice and in equity, to love God above all things, to repay Love with love, to pay for love with love, as we Portuguese say.”
Sister Lucia of Fatima
