Mass for the Twenty Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time September 19, 2021

Then he sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to be first,
he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.”

Taking a child, he placed it in the their midst, and putting his arms around it, he said to them, “Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me; and whoever receives me, receives not me but the One who sent me.”

— Mark 8:34-37

September 11th Memorial Page

The picture is of the steel cross cut from one of the World Trade Center Beams.

We remember them…
in the rising sun and in its going down.

We remember them…
In the blowing of the wind and the chill of winter.

We remember them…
When we are weary and in need of some strength.

We remember them…
When we are lost and sick of heart.

We remember them…
When we have joys we yearn to share.

We remember them…
So long as we live, they too shall live, for they are now a part of us…

As we remember them.

One hundred and fifty years ago, Blessed Pope Pius IX declared St. Joseph as “Patron of the Universal Church.” To mark the 150th anniversary of this occasion, Pope Francis has proclaimed a Holy Year of St. Joseph from Dec. 8, 2020, to Dec. 8, 2021.

In the Pope’s proclamation of the Year of St. Joseph, Patris corde (“With a father’s heart”), he drew connections between St. Joseph and the humble people working throughout the pandemic. “People who do not appear in newspaper and magazine headlines, or on the latest television show, yet in these very days are surely shaping the decisive events of our history.”

The Holy Father notes, “how many fathers, mothers, grandparents and teachers are showing our children, in small everyday ways, how to accept and deal with a crisis by adjusting their routines, looking ahead and encouraging the practice of prayer. How many are praying, making sacrifices and interceding for the good of all.” St. Joseph was a man of sacrifice and prayer for the good of the Holy Family. Even today, he continues to inspire others to reach out to those in need, especially during this difficult time.

“St. Joseph, pray for us!”

Memorare to Saint Joseph

Remember, O most pure spouse of the Virgin Mary, my beloved Patron, that never has it been heard that anyone invoked your patronage and sought your aid without being comforted. Inspired by this confidence I come to you and fervently commend myself to you. Despise not my petition, O dearest foster father of our Redeemer, but accept it graciously.

Amen.

Mass for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary August 15, 2021

“When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, ‘Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb’”
Luke 1:41-42

On July 24th retired Deacon Dennis J. Besida returned for a visit to STA with his family for the renewal of wedding vows of his daughter, Dawn, and his son-in-law, Chris. His first visit to STA since the pandemic began. Father Larry invited him to return as frequently as possible and, if he chooses, to “vest” for the Liturgy and sit near the altar.
