A prayer to St. Anthony on his feast day June 13, for all our loved ones who have not yet found their home in Christ’s Church:
O gentle St. Anthony, by your holy and apostolic life you led countless souls to the love of our divine Lord. Please obtain for me and my loved ones his guidance, you who have the power to lead straying sheep back to the fold of Christ and to find articles that are lost. On earth your heart was filled with compassion for those in distress or sorrow. Please bring my request before the child Jesus who loved to rest in your arms and I believe you will help me to remain always close to our divine Lord. O miraculous wonder worker, in this hour of need, obtain what I ask of you. Amen.
Today we celebrate the Feast of Mary, Mother of the Church. By the power of the Holy Spirit, the Virgin Mary became the Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ. And we, by the power of that same Spirit, become members of his Body; and so his Mother becomes our Mother.
Today the Church celebrates the Visitation of our Lady. Mary, now pregnant with our Lord, goes to serve her elder relative Elizabeth, who was pregnant with John the Baptist.
In this story we are called to imitate Our Lady, who put the needs of others above her own: Being filled with the presence of Christ, especially in Holy Communion, we are summoned to go in haste to love and serve our neighbors.
This Sunday the Archdiocese of Los Angeles celebrates the Feast of our Lord’s Ascension (moved from Thursday). In the Ascension we are reminded that Christ is seated above all power and authority. Whatever promises we face in life, Christ has risen above them. And by faith we are seated with him in those heavenly places.
On June 23, at 5pm, Fr. Paul Sustayta will be celebrating his final Mass as the pastor or St. Andrew Church. A reception will follow. Come say farewell and thank Fr. Paul for over a decade of faithful and loving service to our parish.
Today is our last Confirmation meeting of the year before our candidates receive the sacrament this Wednesday. I know they brought many smiles to us with their cheerful spirit welcoming us to Mass on Palm Sunday. Let’s thank them for all they’ve done!
We are always so blessed to have the Carmelite sisters join us for morning Mass. Always keep them in your prayers, knowing that they are praying for you too!
