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/

Mission Statement

Saint Michael's is a vibrant parish which exists to respond to the needs of all people.

The Community witnesses to the presence of Jesus Christ;
a reality that gives freedom, helps all people live in justice, and celebrates the life that is God's desire and gift for all.

We believe that we live this life best, when all people live in equality and peace.

Moreover, we wish to foster a life, which heals others, proclaims the vibrancy of our being and celebrates our existence in joy.
_________________________



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!
________________________

A Note from Pope Francis

The following is taken from the pope's 2013 exhortation
"The Joy of the Gospel".

In light of the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri and the debate regarding the use of excessive force by local police, armed with military grade weapons, the words of the Holy Father are quite timely.

"Today I'm many places we hear a call for greater security. But until exclusion and inequality in society and between peoples are reversed, it will be impossible to eliminate violence.

The poor and the poorer people are accused of violence, yet without equal opportunities the different forms of aggression and conflict will find a fertile terrain for growth and eventually explode.

When a society - wether local, 
national or global - is willing to leave a part of itself on the fringes, no political programs or resources spent on law enforcement or surveillance systems can indefinitely guarantee tranquility".

Listening to this insight makes me think of the Gospel - "God so loved the world..."

It is jesus' willingness to be 'poor', to be empty, that is the source of the real power of God.

It is the power of love to give itself totally that is celebrated in today's liturgy;
"The Exaltation of the Holy Cross".

All three readings shed light on the place and power of the cross, both as a symbol of Jesus' self-giving and a source of healing and life.

In numbers it is the very cause of the people's suffering - the serpent - that is raised up and becomes the source of healing and life.

In Philippians it is the paradox of love - self -emptying in death - that brings us the promise of new life.

In John's gospel Jesus explains to Nicodemus that God's desire for the world is healing and wholeness, not condemnation.

The Cross is not so much an instrument of torture and death, but 
the mysterious gateway to the Kingdom.

God's willingness to embrace the contradiction of the Cross draws us into the arms of a Love that does not judge; a Love that sees us as we are and proclaims that we are good.

The Exaltation
of
The Holy Cross 

September 14, 2014

_____________

 We should glory in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,
in whom is our salvation, life and resurrection,
through whom we are saved and delivered.

cf. Galatians 6:14 
_____________





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.

Blood of Christ, inebriate me;
Water from the side of Christ, wash me;

Within your wounds hide me;
Separated from you,

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.
