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.
Repeat - Lamb of God....

Pastoral Perspectives

From the Pastor...

    There are many practical effects of failure to believe in God's love:, distrust of God, failure to pray or live the faith, a psychological fear of God ("faith" without hope), scrupulosity, the attitude of "I practice my religion (e.g., go to Mass) because I have to" (heartless faith), a life without any real joy, etc. It is not good for anyone to dismiss the mystery of God's love as something that is unimportant or irrelevant or untrue.
    Even if God loves us, some think, what does it matter? We do not need His love (they think). The world can get on quite well without Him. Why? Because, they say, for example, the world has so many wonderful things made possible by technology. Our ancestors never dreamed of being able to travel to another part of the globe in only a matter of hours (aviation), or to speak with someone across the country or in another part of the world (modern communications). Now we have Skype. I am certainly not against these things. They can be used for great good. But don't get fooled. The world is becoming smaller and smaller, but it is incapable of saving us. It does not hold the key to the fulfillment of human existence. The world is good because God made it, but it isn't God. It can't take His place. It cannot save us from perishing.
    So, how does God, who loves us, reach out to us? He sent His only Son. (And He continues to send Him, in various forms.) People receive Jesus all the time. (Look at the countless Catholic Communion lines, throughout the world. And, at any given time, how many of our people are going to confession? Many Catholics still use the sacrament. They understand that they need God's mercy.)
    Jesus, not the world, is the one who saves us from perishing, which, ultimately means dying in our sins. In fact, Jesus (and only Jesus) offers us the gift of eternal life. The best physicians and scientists the world has ever known cannot give anyone the gift of eternal life, no matter how much good they do for so many.
    The question remains, then, what is our relationship with Jesus like?
