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/

Prayer
To
The Holy Family




 O Jesus, look graciously upon our family here before you.

Once more we consecrate
ourselves before you ~ ~ our and joys ~ ~ that our home may ever be the shrine of peace, purity, love and faith.


Protect and bless all of us, both absent and present, and be merciful to those departed.




O Mary, loving Mother of Jesus, and our Mother, Pray to Jesus for our family, for all the families of the world, to guard the cradle of the newborn, the schools of the young and their vocations.



O Joseph, holy Guardian of
Jesus and Mary,

Assist us by your prayers in all the necessities of life.

Be present at the pillow of the sick and dying so that we may all be united to Jesus and Mary and you for all eternity.

Through the same Christ Our Lord.

Amen.

In light of our many outdoor activities at this time of year, I found this message from Pope Francis to be inspiring.    KP


The Francis Chronicles
by
Carol Glatz


Never let practice and competition get in the way of going to Mass, studying for school, being with friends and helping the poor, Pope Francis told an Italian sports association.

And never let Italy's infatuation with soccer -- like in the pope's native Argentina -- crowd out all the other sports, which are just as important for teaching kids the benefits of teamwork and sacrifice. 

The pope met with athletes, coaches, sports fans and team owners that belong to the Lazio Sports Society, which was established in 1900 by young people who wanted an organization that was open to everyone and upheld sports' ethical and moral values.

"I encourage you to continue to be welcoming, to value diverse talents" and offer a way for people to experience friendship and harmony "without discrimination.

"The pope read out a saying by a 4th-century philosopher:

"With harmony, small things grow; with discord, great things decay.” He praised the sports association for giving "equal dignity to all sports.

In Italy, like in my country, too, in Argentina, there's the risk of always talking about soccer and neglecting all the other sports.”

Every sport has its worth -- not just in physical and social benefits, but also morally in the ways it can offer people, especially kids, a chance to experience a more balanced life.

"Sometimes it happens that a boy or girl forgets about Mass, catechism because of work-outs and competition.

"Studying, friends, serving the poor" also are important and should not be "neglected in order to do just one thing.

No. Everything together," he said.  Sports done right helps build a more caring, brotherly and just world that helps overcome "human and social disadvantage," the pope said.

He told them to always do their best and give their all in life by seeking the good "without fear, with courage and with enthusiasm.”

"Spend your life on what really matters and what lasts forever" and put "your talents at the service of bringing people together, friendship and inclusion," he said.

Seventh Sunday
of
Easter

May 17, 2015
_____________________________

O Lord, hear my voice, for I have called to you;
Of you my heart has spoken:
Seek his face;
hide not your face from me, alleluia.

cf. Psalm 27 (26):7-9   

____________________________


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 Jesus 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

Holy Spirit



The Spirit is coming! The Spirit is coming!
“It’s not new wine. We’re drunk on God’s presence” (cf. Acts 2:13).

God is so overwhelming that we can only drop our jaws and marvel when we receive the Spirit.
Christ Jesus “tuned down his Godness” (kenosis) so he could deal with us as equals (cf. Philippians 2:7).
Today, the fiftieth part of
Easter - Pentecost - all three persons of the Holy Trinity burst forth with love, rolling like fiery lava over creation and filling the faithful with the divine Spirit of life.
