This week, we remember the innocent victims of September 11th,

our brothers and sisters severely affected

by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and those

who went home to the Lord or

were injured by the earthquake in Oaxaca, Mexico . . .

Please pray for everyone who experiences the sudden and

unexpected death of loved ones.

Our Mother of Sorrows, pray for them!

Pope Francis’ Prayer Intention for September, 2017: PARISHES!

(If the video fails to appear in the window below, it can be viewed at

Parishes must be in contact with homes, with people’s lives, with the life of society.

They have to be houses where the door is always open so as to go forth toward others.

And it is important that this going-forth follows a clear proposal of faith.

The doors must be opened so that Jesus can go out with all of the joy of his message.

Let us pray for our parishes, that they not be simple offices, but that animated by a missionary spirit, may be places where faith is communicated and charity is seen.

Each month, Pope Francis invites the faithful to pray for the intention he entrusts to the Church. Starting in 2017 the Pope will present only one prepared prayer intention per month, rather than the two presented before this year. He plans, however, to add a second prayer intention each month related to current events or urgent needs, like disaster relief. The urgent prayer request will help mobilize prayer and action related to the urgent situation.
