Times for Private Prayer

Though Masses and other  Liturgies are temporarily suspended for November following government  directives, St. Mary’s will be open for private prayer. This is down to  the good will and generosity of parishioners who  have stepped forward as volunteer stewards. Times for private prayer  are:

Wednesday 9:30am – 10:30am
Saturday 9:30am – 10:30am

The Blessed Sacrament

The following beautiful  quotes are from Saint Josemaria Escriva. They remind us that we are  blessed as Roman Catholics because when we pray in church the Lord  Himself is truly and substantially present. Where? In  the Tabernacle, the very beating heart of any church building.

Don’t  omit to visit the Blessed Sacrament. After your usual vocal prayer,  tell Jesus, really present in the Tabernacle, of the cares and worries  of your day. And you will receive light and strength for your life as a  Christian.”

Jesus  has remained in the Sacred Host for us so as to stay by our side, to  sustain us, to guide us. And love can only be repaid with love. How  could we not turn to the Blessed Sacrament each day, even if it is only  for a few minutes, to bring him our greetings and our love as his  children?”

I  like to call the Tabernacle a prison – a prison of Love. For twenty  centuries he has been waiting there, willingly locked up, for me and for  everyone.”
