O most blessed Virgin Mary, 
mother most loving and most merciful, 
I, a miserable and unworthy sinner come before you, 
with the heartfelt prayer, 
that of your loving kindness 
you would grant graciously to be near me 
and all who throughout the whole Church 
are to receive the body and blood of your Son this day, 
even as you were near your most dear Son 
as He hung bleeding on the cross, 
that, aided by your gracious help, 
we may worthily offer up a pure and acceptable sacrifice 

April 28, 2017

Mindful then, O Lord, 
of Your worshipful Passion, 
I approach Your Altar, 
sinner though I am, 
to join in the offering to You 
that Sacrifice which You have instituted
to be offered in remembrance of You for our well-being. 
Receive it, I ask You, 
O God most High, 
for Your holy Church, 
and for the people who You have purchased with Your own Blood. 
Let not, through my unworthiness, 
waste the price of their salvation,
whose saving Victim and Redemption You granted.

Columban Fr. Vincent J. Power

In 1982, a Columban General Assembly of representatives from all countries where Columbans lived and ministered, discussed the need for new missions for the Society. Catholic dioceses in a number of countries had asked the Columbans for help. After much discussion, the Columban leadership made the decision to begin new missions in the English-speaking countries of Belize and Jamaica.

Gratefully yours in Christ,

Fr. Timothy Mulroy

For You have mercy upon all, O Lord, 
and hate nothing that You have made. 
Remember how frail our nature is, 
and that You are our Father and our God. 
Do not be angry with us forever, 
and do not shut Your tender mercies in displeasure. 
For it is not for our just works 
that we present our prayers before Your face, 
but for the multitude of Your tender mercies. 
Take away from us, O Lord, our iniquities, 
and mercifully kindle in us the fire of Your Holy Spirit. 
Take away from us the heart of stone,
