Are you suffering from cancer? This prayer to St. Peregrine can
give you hope!
St. Peregrine, whom Holy Mother Church has declared
Patron of those suffering from Cancer, I confidently turn to you
for help in my present sickness. I beg your kind intercession.
Ask God to relieve me of this sickness, if it be his Holy Will.
Plead with the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of Sorrows,
whom you loved so tenderly and in union with whom you have
suffered the pains of Cancer, that she may help me with her
powerful prayers and loving consolation.
But if it should be God’s Holy Will that I bear this sickness, obtain for me courage and strength to accept these trails
from the loving hand of God with patience and resignation, because he knows what is best for the salvation of my soul. St.
Peregrine, be my friend and patron. Help me to imitate you in
accepting suffering, and to unite myself with Jesus Crucified
and the Mother of Sorrows, as you did. I offer my pains to God
with all the love of my heart, for his glory and the salvation of
souls, especially my own. Amen.

SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
Entrance Antiphon
P SALM 66:4
All the earth shall bow down before you, O God, and shall sing
to you, shall sing to your name, O Most High!
First Reading
1 SAMUEL 3:3-10, 19
A senior Hebrew priest and his young apprentice have an encounter
with God. Even the senior takes a while to understand. The apprentice will become a leader of the nation.
Responsorial Psalm
P SALM 40:2, 4, 7-8, 8-9, 10
Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will.
Second Reading
1 CORINTHIANS 6:13-15, 17-20
Ancient Corinth was both a bawdy seaport and a sophisticated center of religious and philosophical debate. To new Christian converts in Corinth, Paul describes a new morality and new reasons for
observing it.
Gospel
J OHN 1:35-42
The Evangelist John portrays the Baptist John turning over his disciples to Jesus. Jesus has extraordinary insight into the hearts of his
new followers.
Communion Antiphon
P SALM 23:5
You have prepared a table before me, and how precious is the
chalice that quenches my thirst.
“God is the source of life; thanks to his breath, man has life. God’s breath
sustains the entire journey of our life on earth.”
— Pope Francis
“The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the
heart of the most intimate human relationships.”
— Blessed Mother Teresa
“The newborn child gives itself to its parents by the very fact of its
coming into existence. Its existence is already a gift, the first gift of
the Creator to the creature.”
— Blessed John Paul II

2nd Sunday Ordinary Time—
In the reading from the first book of Samuel this
week, the Lord keeps calling Samuel, but Samuel
does not know what to do. He thinks that it is Eli calling to
him, but each time that Samuel responds to him he is told that
Eli did not call him. The Lord calls to us too, and sometime
like Samuel we do not understand what is happening. The
response that Eli gives to Samuel, “Speak, for your servant is
listening,” should be our response too. Sometimes our response to what we hear the Lord saying is to say why me or
no or yes. We should realize that whatever the Lord calls us
to do, whether it be a vocation to the priesthood or the religious life or some service in the Church or community is the
path by which the Lord is giving us to save our souls and the
souls of others that we meet along the way. In a discernment
prayer of Thomas Merton we find a way to overcome our
fears that often prevent us from responding to the call of the
Lord. He wrote, “I hope that I will never do anything apart
from that desire (the desire to please God). And I know that
if I do this, You will lead me by the right road though I may
know nothing about it.”
Join us every Saturday for the recitaon of the Rosary at
4:30pm in the church before the mass.
