Hello,

I am Catholic., and I have been walking with Jesus my whole life...and He has saved me from "me" many times...LOL....

One thing I do, is pray.. a lot. I think we all do as Christians. I headed this thread Catholic only because of what I am posting. All are welcome to pray this anytime.. but I did not want to offend others who are not Catholic, or who might not understand.

A Novena is a 9 day consecutive prayer. ST. Peregrine is the patron saint of all CANCER.

I post this for all who might want the prayer to St. Peregrine. A POWERFUL intercessor.

God Bless you girlies... I sure love ya!

Novena To
St. Peregrine 

 

 

Prayer to Saint Peregrine

O great St. Peregrine, you have been called "The Mighty," "The Wonder-Worker," because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you.

For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fibre of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favoured with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you.
(Pause here and silently recall the names of the sick for whom you are praying)
Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity, a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy.
Amen.


St. Peregrine was born in 1260 at Forlì, Italyto an affluent family. He lived a comfortable life as a youth, and politically opposed the papacy.  After he experienced the forgiveness of St. Philip Benizi, he changed his life and joined the Servite order.  He was ordained a priest, and later returned to his home to establish a Servite community.  There he was widely known for his preaching, penances, and counsel in the confessional.  He was cured of cancer, after he received a vision of Christ on the cross reaching out His hand to touch his impaired limb.  He died in 1345 and was canonized in 1726.  He is the patron of cancer patients.

Happy Easter All!

After four days at a conference in San Diego, I was happy to be home. I managed to get up for 7:00 am Mass, and am now boiling eggs. My sons (who have autism and intellectual disabilities) love to color Easter eggs. I am happy to give them some "blank canvases" to work on.

Many blessings to all of you!

Thankyou for sharing.Heart

Lovely story re Stations of the Cross. And beautiful work.

Had a beautiful Easter Vigil service at St Patricks in Melbourne

And Easter Sunday at St Francis where they had a stunningly good chamber orchestra and choir.

Just a beautiful Easter.

Praying for all souls who lost their lives in church praying...Sri Lanka.

God bless them and their families.

Amen Astrid, it was a beautiful Easter Sunday here too, but so very different for hundreds of people in Sri Lanka.

Photos are because I was so lucky as to be taking some photos for the Parish facebook page so got to photograph these glorious events.

I also got to go to The Blessing of the Food on Easter Satuday, a Polish tradition (Święconka), which was incorporated into the Holy Week events in our parish last year at the suggestion some Polish families in our parish. This is the second year and some of the families invited other parishioners to come and take part. Perhaps know it but it was totally new to me. It was wonderful, the families bring beautifully decorated baskets of food and put them on the altar for blessing. A lamb which may be made of sugar or even plastic is part of the basket contents.

ThumbsUpThumbsUp My friend and I went to 7:30 Mass. The church was reasonably full. The 9:00 people were arriving as we left. I don't have my fitbit with watch yet, so I don't know what time it was. Then I spent the afternoon with friends. I don't see their (adolescent Lab) dog very often, and he always barks and growls at me. I think he has figured out my personality. He wanted me to play with him, I wanted to play with him, but until the barking and growling ended, our mutual desires were not fulfilled. We concluded that I need to get over there more often so the same scenario won't be replayed every time I have dinner with them.

We had a four-inch deep pizza pie, supposedly an Italian tradition for Easter.

The celebrated image of Our Lady of the Rosary at Pompeii.May 8th, is the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary of Pompeii. A special devotion known as the Supplication to the Queen of Victories was begun on October 1883 and is recited all over the world, especially on May 8 and on the first Sunday in October. The devotion includes a request thought to have been given by Our Lady to one of the children healed at Pompeii, "Whoever desires favors of me should make three novenas of petition and three of thanksgiving."

Happy Easter, dear sisters! FF, would you believe that I also prepared a Święconka for Easter?!?! I am not Polish, but my congregation has strong Polish roots and there is a Polish community in my area. We prepare a basket for our convent. It is a tradition that I take our basket to our aged care to be blessed (I have done so the last four years). Your basket is beautiful!

I hope you are all happy and doing well. I have an ultrasound booked for this coming Wednesday. God is with me and I know all will work out for the good, I just need to have faith.

What many don't know was that Jesuits worked in Japan and many of the Japanese in the Hiroshima area converted (200,000 baptized by 1582). They became hidden Christians in 1620. They still existed in 1850, when their religious freedom was restored. Maximilian Kolbe was a missionary to them, but was sent back to Poland in 1936 because of tuberculosis. Having studied the effects (alcoholism being one) of many generations of religious persecution in this Japanese population, he had a special understanding of the problems of the Jewish population of Poland.

He was already dying of tuberculosis when he offered himself in substitution for the other man.
