Is Coming!

We are looking for ways in which we can all stay "safely connected" during the pandemic in order to continue to practice important tenets of our faith. Zoom is one of the ways we are trying to do this as discussed at our first Church Council meeting since the start of the pandemic.

You will be hearing more about this in the coming weeks.

November is for Thanksgiving - Let Us Pray!

Alice Cella - Liturgy Committee Member

November and Thanksgiving are almost synonymous. It is the month in which we take a day and dedicate it to thanking God for all His blessings.  It is a time when we pray for our deceased, too.

We thank God at mealtime when we say grace and of course we pray in the various ways we have learned but did you ever think about how many ways there are to pray?

For example, there is Liturgical prayer, as in the Our Father which comes straight from the Bible and is used in liturgy. Liturgy is defined as public prayer, like the Mass, and is distinguished from devotional prayer like the Rosary. Devotional prayer can be shared or private.

Let's look at the kinds of prayer there are: There is Direct Address (conversing with God) and this has four types. Petition, when we ask of God; Thanksgiving when we are grateful to God; Reparation when we apologize to God and Adoration when we express love for God.

There is also Meditation, this is reflective prayer in which the mind thinks about God and divine things.  Objects of meditation are three: 1) The mysteries of faith; 2) Seeking knowledge of what God wants us to do, and 3) Seeking how God wants to be served.

And there is Contemplation which is that prayer which looks at God by contemplating and adoring his attributes more than by asking him for favors or thanking him for graces received.

There are many ways in which we can pray. Singing is a good example, joining in hymns at Mass or choral singing. All through the psalms, we read of joyful singing which is really praise of God. One of the best habits we can form is daily offertory prayer. When we offer to God our day and all that it contains; when we offer to God endurance of pain or suffering in atonement for sin; when we offer him our joys sadness or struggles, which shows that we accept his will. In this, we express love for God.

Prayer is the voluntary awareness of God's presence. Let us pray!
