Our Lady Of Knock Chapel

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Give praise to the Father Almighty. To His Son, Jesus Christ the Lord. To the Spirit who lives in our hearts, Both now and forever. Amen.

Our Lady of Knock, Queen of Ireland, you gave hope to your people in a time of distress and comforted them in sorrow. You have inspired countless pilgrims to pray with confidence to your divine Son, remembering His promise, "Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find."

Help me to remember that we are all pilgrims on the road to heaven. Fill me with love and concern for my brothers and sisters in Christ, especially those who live with me. Comfort me when I am sick, lonely and depressed. Teach me how to take part every more reverently in the Holy Mass. Give me a greater love of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Pray for me now and at the hour of my death. Amen.

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; grant us peace.
St Joseph, Chosen by God to be the husband of Mary, the protector of the Holy Family, the guardian of the Church. Protect all families in their work and recreation and guard us on our journey through life. Repeat - Lamb of God....
St. John, Beloved disciple of the Lord, faithful priest. Teacher of the Lord of God. Help us to hunger for the word, to be loyal to the Mass and to love one another.

Pastoral Perspectives

From the Pastor...

    As a priest, I have witnessed a number of "11th hour" conversions. Once I was called to give last rites to a man who was at home. The man wasn't registered in any Catholic parish. (I had never met him before.) To my surprise, the man was fully conscious, and sitting in a chair in his living room. (Usually, people who are dying are in bed.) Family members were present. I gave him absolution, after he indicated that he was sorry for his sins, anointing and viaticum. He died about two hours later. The next day, one of his relatives called me and gave me a background on the situation. The man, though raised Catholic himself, had not practiced the faith in years. None of his children were raised in the faith (they did not know what I was giving him when I gave Him Holy Communion). One must glorify God who gave the man the impetus (through grace) to ask his family to call a priest, and just at the right moment. Two hours later he would be dead.
    We must know that salvation is a gift. No one "deserves" it. Yet if you take a poll and ask others (even practicing Catholics), "If you were to die tonight and Jesus asked you, 'why should I give you eternal life?' What would you tell Him?" many will speak only about their worthiness. Few will say anything about the Lord's mercy or generosity. Never give up on anyone's salvation. God can do marvelous things with people, even at the last hour. This is why we should remember to pray for people, especially for people who are dying, for conversion or final perseverance. St. Faustina was very devoted to praying for the dying (and for the souls in purgatory). St. Theresa certainly benefited from prayers for her final perseverance (she had such an agonizing death). On the other hand, do not put off conversion. As someone once put it: "He who waits for the 11th hour to convert, may die at 10:30". Live each day for God. Live each day as if it's the last one we have.
