PRAYER BEFORE
THE
CRUCIFIX
_____

Behold, O kind and gentle Jesus, I kneel before you and pray that you would impress upon my heart the virtues of faith, hope and charity, with true repentance for my sins and a firm purpose of amendment.

I meditate on your five precious wounds, having in mind the words which David spoke in prophecy: "They have pierced my hands and my feet.

I can count all my bones"

{Psalm 22}

The 17th Annual Buy Nothing Day Winter Coat exchange will be held on Friday November 29 at 14 sites around Rhode Island beginning at 9 AM.     Throughout November many of the November 29 distribution sites and numerous other places in our communities are collecting winter coats.  These coats, and coats donated at the various distribution sites on November 29 will be available for any Rhode Islanders who need a winter coat to pick up on November 29.  

 Buy Nothing Day Winter Coat Exchange organizer Greg Gerritt Gerritt commented  " While the poverty and inequality that drives the need to redistribute winter coats in the community is concentrated in the urban core, the availability of coats has a reverse distribution, that has become more apparent as we develop a larger and larger number of sites.  We are therefore encouraging Rhode Islanders looking for winter coats to visit sites other than the Providence distribution on the State House Lawn. "

The Buy Nothing Day Winter Coat Exchange is a partnership between people and organizations through out the state.  Many of the sites are organized by local churches or service organizations, and about half the sites are YMCA of Greater Providence facilities, a partnership that continues to strengthen over time.  

The Buy Nothing Day Winter Coat Exchange began in Rhode Island in 1997 as an effort to point out the dangers of consumerism for our communities and the planet while providing something useful for the community.  The hundreds of volunteers participating in the event each year continue in that spirit, to serve both our community and to emphasize the policy choices necessary to create a healthier community.  A complete list of the sites participating is available at http://prosperityforri.com/2013-bnd-sites-in-rhode-island/

Pray for Peace

We are all called as a community of
faith to pray for PEACE.

Let us renew our efforts 
especially at this time when there is so much unrest in all areas of our world.

Let us turn to Jesus - The Prince of Peace - who is urging us through the Spirit to spread his message by our actions!

Reading from some
of
The Writings

of

Pope Francis


I am struck by his clear message of hope and reaching out to those in most need. 


In the Gospel about John the Baptist this Sunday, we recognize that the voice in the wilderness that we heard last week has now become our voice. 


We must speak for those most likely to be forgotten and cast aside. 


We must speak for the poor in the face of rising wealth disparity;

For those shut out of services because of their immigration status;

For those living on the streets when we are warm and safe.

Pope Francis says


Be sure to remember: coming out of ourselves, just as Jesus, just as God came out in Jesus and Jesus came out of himself for all of us.  


Someone might say to me: 

"But Father, I don't have time,"

"I have so many things to do," 


"It's difficult,"
We are often satisfied with a few prayers with a few charitable acts;

But we do not have the courage "to come out" to bring Christ to others

God always thinks with mercy:
Do not forget this.


God thinks like the Samaritan who did not pass by the unfortunate man, pitying him or looking at him from the other side of the road, 


But helped him without asking for anything in return; without asking whether he was a Jew, a pagan or a Samaritan,


Whether he was rich or poor: he asked for nothing.


He went to help him:
God is like this. 

God thinks like the Shepherd who lays down his life in order to defend and save his sheep.


To come out always! 
And to do so with God's love and tenderness, with respect and with patience,

Knowing that God takes our hands, our feet, our heart, and guides them and makes all our actions fruitful.  


I hope that we all will live these days well,

Following the Lord courageously, carrying within us a ray of his love for all we meet.


From 
Hold onto Hope

THE ORDER OF MASS


At the Eucharist, the Church comes together to hear the Word of the Lord, to pray for the world's needs, to offer the sacrifice of the Cross in praise and thanks to God, to receive Christ Jesu in Communion, and then to be sent forth in the Spirit as disciples of the Gospel.

Through the experience of these sacred mysteries in the liturgy, the "summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed,"the people of God are renewed and given new strength to live out the Christian faith daily (Sacrosanctum Concilium, no. 10).

In the Order of Mass, song numbers given in Today's Missal match their accompaniment numbers in
The Accompaniment Books.

Prayer 

To
Saint Michael The Archangel




Saint Michael, the Archangel, Defend Us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.

 May God rebuke him, we humble pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God,

 Thrust into Hell Satan and the other evil spirits who prowl about the world
for the ruin of Souls.


Amen
Pope Leo XIII (1810-1903)

Holy Spirit Prayer
Come, Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit Fill The Hearts Of Your Faithful And Enkindle In Them The Fire Of Your Love.

Send Forth Your Spirit And They Shall Be Created And You Shall Renew The Face Of The Earth.

O, God, Who Has instructed The Hearts Of Your Faithful By The Light Of the Holy Spirit,

 Grant That By The Same Holy Spirit We May Have A Right Judgment In All Things and Evermore Rejoice In His Consolation.


Through Christ Our Lord.
Amen

Anima Christi
 


Soul of Christ, sanctify me;
Body of Christ, save me;
Blood of Christ, inebriate me;
Water from the side of Christ, wash me;
Passion of Christ, strengthen me;
O good Jesus, hear me;
Within your wounds hide me;
Separated from you, 
let me never be;
From the evil one protect me;
At the hour of my death, call me;
And close to you bid me;
That with your saints,
I may be,
Praising you forever and ever.

Amen
