Confession and Adoration
Throughout Lent, Father Larry and I are available on several mornings after Mass for Confession. I realize that that’s not
convenient for everyone, but it was a bit of a late addition to our calendar. Next year I hope to offer weekly evening
times for Confession throughout Lent. That being said, Passion week, or the Fifth Week of Lent, there will be evening
opportunities Monday – Thursday (April 9-11), 5:30 – 7:30 pm.
Moreover, the Archdiocese of Baltimore observes a Lenten Day of Reconciliation on the Monday of Passion Week, April
8. That day, the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed for Adoration until 8:00 pm and confessors will be available much of
the day – see the flyer. I will publish the schedule of which priest is available when in the coming weeks.

Would you consider signing up to adore the Lord in His Blessed Sacrament for a half hour or hour that day?
Use this Signup Genius link (https://bit.ly/2TMnRry)

to let us know when you can be here so that we can ensure that our Lord is always accompanied

by two or three adorers.

First Fridays  Devotion 


Mass: 6:30am
10:30 am during the school year

Devotion to the Sacred Heart has two elements: consecration and reparation:

  • We consecrate ourselves to the Sacred Heart by acknowledging Him as Creator and Redeemer and as having full rights over us as King of Kings, by repenting, and by resolving to serve Him. 
     

  • We make reparations for the indifference and ingratitude with which He is treated and for leaving Him abandoned by humanity.

To carry out these general goals of consecration and reparation, there are quite specific devotions authorized by the Church.

specific devotions became even more popularized when St. Margaret Mary Alacoque (1647-1690), a Visitation nun, had a personal revelation involving a series of visions of Christ as she prayed before the Blessed Sacrament. She wrote, "He disclosed to me the marvels of his Love and the inexplicable secrets of his Sacred Heart." Christ emphasized to her His love -- and His woundedness caused by Man's indifference to this love.

He promised that, in response to those who consecrate themselves and make reparations to His Sacred Heart: 

  • He will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.
  • He will establish peace in their homes.
  • He will comfort them in all their afflictions.
  • He will be their secure refuge during life, and above all, in death.
  • He will bestow abundant blessings upon all their undertakings.
  • Sinners will find in His Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
  • Lukewarm souls shall become fervent.
  • Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.
  • He will bless every place in which an image of His Heart is exposed and honored.
  • He will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
  • Those who shall promote this devotion shall have their names written in His Heart.
  • In the excessive mercy of His Heart that His all-powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the First Fridays in nine consecutive months the grace of final perseverance; they shall not die in His disgrace, nor without receiving their sacraments. His divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.


The devotions attached to these promises are:

  • Receiving Communion frequently
  • First Fridays: going to Confession and receiving the Eucharist on the first Friday of each month for nine consecutive months. Many parishes will offer public First Friday devotions; if they do, you must perform First Fridays publicly. If it isn't so offered in your parish, you can do this privately, going to Confession, receiving the Eucharist, and offering your prayers for the intention of the Holy Father.
  • Holy Hour: Eucharistic Adoration for one hour on Thursdays ("Could you not watch one hour with me?"). Holy Hour can be made alone or as part of a group with formal prayers.
  • Celebrating of the Feast of the Sacred Heart (see below)

First Saturdays Devotion

We celebrate Our Lady of Fatima each First Saturday. The devotion begins with reciting the Rosary and other prayers at 8:00 am followed by Mass at 8:30 am. Additional Fatima prayers and a procession will follow Mass at approx. 9:10 am.

On Dec 10, 1925 Our Lady appeared to Servant of God, Sister Lucia of Fatima and spoke these words: "Announce in my name that I promise to assist at the hour of death with the graces necessary for the salvation of their soulds, all those who onthe first Saturday of five consecutive moths shall: 

  1. Go to Confession 
  2. Receive Holy Communion 
  3. Recite the Rosary (5 decades)
  4. Keep me company for 15 minutes while meditating on the 15 mysteries of the Rosary with the intention of making reparation to me"

In a spirit of reparation, the above conditions are each to be proceeded by the words: "In reparation for the offensive committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary." Confessions may be made 8 days before or after the First Saturday, and Holy Communion may be received at either the morning or the evening Mass on the First Saturday.

 HOLY WEEK AT ST. MARY’S


Chrism Mass -April 15


Monday, April 15, is the Chrism Mass in Baltimore
at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen from 7:30 pm to about 9:00 pm.


It certainly makes for a late night, but is a beautiful was to continue to enter into the mysteries of the Lord’s passion.
The Chrism Mass is named after the fact that the Sacred Chrism along with the Oil of the Sick and the Oil of Catechumens are
consecrated and blessed, respectively, during the Mass. These are the oils used in administering the sacraments of Baptism,
Confirmation, Holy Orders, and the Anointing of the Sick. They are also used in certain sacramental actions of the Church, such
as the consecration of a church and altar. Father Larry and I will be going. If you are interested in attending, please call or email
Paula at church@saintmarysonline.org and we might be able to arrange a carpool.
