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/

Reflexion

"Dying to the False Self"                                
In one way or another, almost all religions say  that you must “die before you die,” and then you will know what dying means—and what it does not mean! Our usual view of life is utterly inadequate to see what is real. It is largely useless to talk about the very Ground of your being, your True Self, or your deepest soul until you have made real contact with these at least once. That demands dying to the old view of life based on the mental ego and the False Self.  If you do make contact with your True Self, you forever know that something is there that can be talked about, relied on, and deeply trusted. You move from religion as mere belief to religion as a new kind of knowing and a new source for loving. Henceforth, you know you have a soul, and your soul becomes your primary receiving station. Most souls are initially “unsaved” in the sense that they cannot dare to imagine they could be one with God/Reality/the universe. This is the lie of the False Self that dies slowly.                                                                          
The realignment of ourselves from two to One through a loving and life-long tug of war is the very dance of transformation. It is a trust walk, a constant testing of the reliability of love and God (which you come to know are the same), and which eventually allows us to fall trustingly back into our True Self. Then we are one again.

In Christianity we make so much of atonement.  What we should be about is at-one-ment.  What a difference a pair of hyphens can make!  (Richard Rohr)

Time of Renewal! Together as a community let us pray for each other and especially for the leadership and for all those who have stepped forward to meet, to discusing their time and talents and resources to advance this mmunity of St. Michael’s. 

Thank you
Thanks to all who came to  help out at our St. Patrick  Party - the Committee, organizers
, set-up and decorating teams & all who came to celebrate!




A Prayer for Lent

Eternal God who knows neither morning or evening, yet wraps us in love both night and day;

lift the curtain from the world
and the veil from our hearts,
rise with the morning sun upon our souls and enliven our work and our prayer.  May we walk in the steps of Jesus who lived on earth and who worked in harmony with your will. Amen.



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.
