It was our blessed Lord’s desire for the world to celebrate the following Sunday after Easter, as Divine Mercy Sunday.

In His own words to St. Faustina Kowalska, He says:
My daughter, tell the whole world about My Inconceivable mercy. I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy.
The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment.

On that day all the divine floodgates through which grace flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet. My mercy is so great that no mind, be it of man or of angel, will be able to fathom it throughout all eternity.

 

We hope that you will be able to publicly venerate the Divine Mercy image and pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy at a church near you.  One suggestion in the Diocese of San Angelo is to attend the ‘Divine Mercy Sunday at the Carmelite Hermitage’

Here is their schedule and we hope you have a very blessed Divine Mercy Sunday:

1:30 pm Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Confessions

2:15 pm Recitation of the Holy Rosary

3:00 pm Recitation of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy

3:30 pm Celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass followed by a Eucharistic Procession & Benediction

5:00 pm Reception in the St. Albert Hall  (please bring a covered dish)

 

We invite you to join us in the Worldwide Novena of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
In the ‘Divine Mercy in my soul’ diary of polish nun, St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, we read our Lord’s very words to her, and to the world, about this Divine Mercy Chaplet:

“Encourage souls to say the Chaplet which I have given.  Whoever will recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death.

When they say this Chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between My Father and the dying person, not as the just Judge but as the Merciful Savior.

Priests will recommend it to sinners as their last hope of salvation.  Even if there were a sinner most hardened, if he were to recite this Chaplet only once, he would receive grace from My infinite mercy.  I desire to grant unimaginable graces to those souls who trust in My mercy.

Through the Chaplet you will obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with My will.”

Here is today’s intention (for Priests and Religious).

Dear GRN Family, please tune in to the upcoming special programming, remembering our dear Mother Mary Angelica of the Annunciation, THIS Sunday afternoon and Monday throughout the day.

DAILY Prayer:
O ever Immaculate Virgin, Mother of mercy, Health of the sick, Refuge of sinners, Comforter of the afflicted, you know our wants, our troubles, our sufferings deign to cast upon us a look of mercy.
By appearing in the Grotto of Lourdes, you were pleased to make it a privileged sanctuary, whence you dispense your favors, and already many have obtained the cure of their infirmities, both spiritual and physical.

We come, therefore, with the most unbounded confidence to implore your maternal intercession.  Obtain for us, O loving Mother, the granting of our requests.

Day THREE Prayer:

You are all fair, O Mary, and there is in you no stain of original sin. O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.  O brilliant star of sanctity, as on that lovely day, upon a rough rock in Lourdes you spoke to the child Bernadette and a fountain broke from the plain earth and miracles happened and the great shrine of Lourdes began, so now I beseech you to hear our fervent prayer and do, we beseech you, grant us the petition we now so earnestly seek

 

(Make your request)

 

O Brilliant star of purity, Mary Immaculate, Our Lady of Lourdes, glorious in your Assumption, triumphant in your Coronation, show unto us the mercy of the Mother of God, Virgin Mary, Queen and Mother, be our comfort, hope, strength, and consolationAmen

 

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for usSaint Bernadette, pray for us.

1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary, 1 Glory Be…

Mother Angelica is quoted as saying “Never put a lid on God.  You can give God a thimble and ask for a quart.  It won’t work.  Your plans, your projects, your dreams have to always be bigger than you, so God has room to operate.  I want you to get good ideas, crazy ideas, extravagant ideas.  Nothing is too much for The Lord to do – accent on ‘The Lord’.

This week our Diocese of San Angelo Priests will be on their annual Priestly Retreat. Would you please offer up your Holy Communions, Rosaries, Chaplet of Divine Mercy, etc. for them and their retreat this week??  Thank you for all of your prayers and support that you show to each one of them!

Also thanks be to God that our Diocese will soon be blessed with another Priest for the Glory of God and the service of His Church.

You are invited to the Priestly Ordination Mass for Dcn. Tony Franco, which will take place at the Cathedral this coming Friday, June 3, beginning at 6 pm.

After his ordination, there will be a reception at the Cathedral gym, where you can congratulate him and receive the priestly blessing of soon to be, Father Franco.

For more information, please contact the Cathedral Church at 325-658-6567.

What a wonderful blessing and extraordinary privilege we have to walk through the LOCAL Holy Doors, during this Extraordinary Year of Mercy.

Here in the Diocese of San Angelo, the Holy Doors are located at:

  • St. Mary’s Church in Odessa

  • The SHRINE doors at Our Lady of Guadalupe in Midland

  • The Adoration Chapel across Sacred Heart in Abilene

  • The INNER, Front doors at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in San Angelo

First what is a Plenary Indulgence?  It is a remission before God of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been forgiven.

*Note that a sin has been forgiven through Sacramental Confession, but the punishment for that sin still remains.

Therefore to receive a Plenary Indulgence when walking through a designated Holy Door, the conditions are the following:

  1. Go to the Sacrament of Confession before or after you cross through a Holy Door

  2. Receive Holy Communion (with personal reflection on mercy) before or after you cross a Holy Door

  3. Pray for the intentions of the Pope by praying the Creed, 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary and 1 Glory Be

  4. Truly repent of your sin and let go of your attachment to sin, even venial sin

  5. Be in the state of grace while performing these prescribed works

Now since ordinary Jubilees are called every 25 years by the Pope, why wait until 2025 for the next ordinary Jubilee?

Let’s take advantage of this EXTRAORDINARY privilege before this extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy has come and gone…

Great news! Bishop Michael J. Sis of the Diocese of San Angelo will ordain Dcn. Miguel Romero, Missionary Servants of the Word (MSP), on Friday, April 15.

This Ordination Mass will begin at 7 pm at Holy Redeemer Church in Odessa and you are invited to attend and show your support for soon to be Fr. Miguel Romero after his Priestly Ordination.

You may contact the Holy Redeemer Church Office in Odessa for more information or directions.

 

Felicidades Padre Miguel Romero, MSP!
