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
Today is the feast of two great heroes – Peter and Paul, followers of Jesus, though Paul never met Jesus "in the flesh".  The message in the readings reminds us as the church today that the source of their greatness was their willingness to accept rescue by God when their lives were endangered.  Their greatness comes from their reliance on God's power, not the wielding of their power over others.  There is, however, a third great hero whose name must be connected to those of Peter and Paul – that is Mary of Magdala.  Her name has been erroneously defamed over the centuries and she needs to be recognized for the special companion of Jesus that she was.  Her place among the followers of Jesus has been overshadowed by an apparent unwillingness to accept Magdalene as an equal.  We have seen this played out over many centuries in the church.  In the early days women were preachers, healers, leaders of all kinds.  Their egalitarian Founder never pushed a woman aside or failed to welcome the important contributions of women in building the kingdom of God.  For this feast honoring Peter and Paul, let's remember and celebrate all of Jesus' followers – including ourselves.  Pray that the church will be more open to all who offer their lives and talents to serve the People of God.  Gal 3:28 "neither male nor female . . all are one in Christ."                               KP

********************

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. 

 

Mark your calendars!       September 28, 2014

We will be celebrating the 155th Anniversary of St. Michael's this September.  Plans are brewing so be aware and ready to assist with preparations for our Feast.
*****************

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF OUR GRADUATES!

 

Thoughts from Pope Francis:                                       "We must recover the whole sense of gift, of gratuitousness, of solidarity. Rampant capitalism has taught the logic of profit at all costs, of giving to get, of exploitation without looking at the person… and we see the results in the crisis we are experiencing! This is a place that teaches charity, a “school” of charity, which instructs me to go encounter every person, not for profit, but for love."   (5-21-13)



 

 



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.
