Let us pray for your needs and intentions – you and members of your family, both living and deceased, will be remembered in the Novenas celebrated for your intentions and in the masses offered each day for you.
TWO SPECIAL NOVENAS IN HONOR OF OUR LADY OF LOURDES:
We would be honored to pray for you during two special Our Lady of Lourdes Novenas of Masses.
The miracle of Lourdes is NOT Lourdes.
Rather, the miracle of Lourdes is this: that EVERY place of devotion to Mary (be it a church, a shrine or a human heart) is now another Lourdes.
I invite you to start your year by joining us in two Special Novenas of Masses in honor of Our Lady of Lourdes.
The first – a Novena of Petition – begins February 2nd and ends on the 10th. The second, a Novena of Thanksgiving, starts on the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and concludes February 19th.
Without question, all of us have problems, worries and secret heartaches that are too much to bear alone. These are matters I urge you to express as petitions placed before the altar in supplication to God.
Perhaps you will bring a sick friend to Our Lady’s loving attention, or plead for a child, or ask for her help for an elderly neighbor whose suffering seems endless, or offer your own needs to Our Mother Mary’s compassionate care. And I know you will remember to ask Our Lady to keep our missionaries and those they serve in her Son’s care.
These needs will be echoed again during the Novena of Thanksgiving, when we render thanks to God for His faithfulness in meeting the needs of His children as they pray.
Please pray this Novena with us to honor Mary, Our Lady of Lourdes. Send your intentions today.
Ever gratefully yours,
Fr. Robert, O.F.M.
