Tips to stay healthy during the flu season
While we enjoy this beautiful fall weather, let’s try to stay as healthy as possible as the flu season approaches.
à Practice healthy habits: Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids and eat nutritious food.
à Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.
à Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
à Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, not your hands, when coughing or sneezing.
à Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work and school.
à If you have a fever or flu symptoms, don't go to school or work. Please be respectful of others.
St. Therese of Lisieux chose to demonstrate her ardent love for God in little ways. In her Eucharistic adoration as a child she tells us:
"I loved above all the processions in honor of the Blessed Sacrament. What a joy it was for me to throw flowers beneath the feet of God! Before allowing them to fall to the ground, I threw them as high as I could and I was never so happy as when I saw roses touch the sacred monstrance."
While at her boarding school, Therese spoke of her closeness to Jesus in this way:
"No one paid any attention to me, and I would go up to the choir of the chapel and remain before the Blessed Sacrament until the moment when Papa came to get me. This was my only consolation, for was not Jesus my only Friend? I knew how to speak to Him; conversations with creatures, even pious conversations, fatigued my soul. I felt it was far more valuable to speak to God than to speak about Him..."
Over one hundred years ago, St. Therese of the Child Jesus found great peace alone in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, and in her own little way became a model of how to love, trust and surrender oneself to the God who loves us.
(Story of a Soul, The Autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux)
NATIONAL EUCHARISTIC REVIVAL
From Bishop Stephen Berg
“The Eucharist is the gift from God of his son, Jesus, in his body, blood and truth, entering every moment of our lives. It is neither merely a symbol nor a gesture, it is a physical and spiritual relationship, a reality of God alone, closer to us than we are to ourselves. It is our personal encounter with Christ. This reality must cause much prayer, reflection, and conversion in our daily lives. None of us are worthy for this, and all of us need constant conversion.
The Eucharistic Renewal Project has been in planning for five years. We will be focused on deepening our understanding of and love for the Eucharist. It is time for this renewal, and I am happily anticipating the work ahead. The Holy Spirit will guide our Church through this next important phase as always when we turn to Him as we have done. Let us pray and prepare now to deepen our personal encounter with Christ!”
Visit diopueblo.org for more information about the National Eucharistic Revival.
We will celebrate Mass at 7:00am on the First Saturdays of each month.
Our Lady presented to Sr. Lucia, the sole surviving Fatima visionary, an explanation of her promises on December 10, 1925, regarding reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Our Lady promises to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, shall follow the devotion in reparation for blasphemies against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
What is Required?
To do all these things in the spirit of reparation to the Immaculate Heart
of Mary, and to observe all these practices on the first Saturday of five
-Repentance and Conversion. In order to fulfil this requirement
in a truly worthy manner, we must have a heartfelt spirit of
repentance and lasting sorrow for our sins. The confession
may be made on the First Saturday itself or some days before or
after the First Saturday taking the earliest opportunity to confess.
- Receive Holy Communion.
* The Rosary
- Devoutly recite five decades of the Holy Rosary daily.
* Meditation for Fifteen Minutes
- Meditate on one mystery or more, without simultaneous recitation of the Rosary. If you are unsure about your meditation, you may consider spending 15 minutes in recalling to mind all you know about the Birth, Infancy and Youth of Jesus (Joyful Mysteries); about the sufferings of Jesus through Lent, Holy Week and the Stations of the Cross (Sorrowful Mysteries); and about Easter, the Ascension, the Coming the Holy Spirit and reflect on the life of Our Lady from Pentecost until Her death and Her Assumption into Heaven (Glorious Mysteries).
We are encouraged to adopt the First Saturdays Devotion in reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary as a continued part of our consecration and deeper growth in our spiritual life.
