Precious Life Memorial Dedicated at Mount Schoenstatt
The blessing of the Precious Life Memorial took place after the first Sunday Mass on October 6.  Representatives of two homes for expectant mothers, including staff were present.  The community donated items for newborns to benefit three of the homes providing service to expectant mothers in San Antonio.  The image of Mary on the wayside shrine was blessed and also the expectant mothers and young children in attendance.  A reception was held after the dedication and the baby items donated were distributed to the three homes.  An image of Mary, Mother Thrice Admirable was given to each of the three facilities.

THE POPE CONVOKES A DAY OF PRAYER AND PENANCE FOR PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST

 

Vatican City, 1 September 2012 (VIS)

Pope Francis: “On 7 September, in Saint Peter’s Square, here, from 7 p.m. until 12 a.m. we will gather in prayer and in a spirit of penance, invoking God’sgreat gift of peace upon the beloved nation of Syria and upon each situation of conflict and violence around the world. Humanity needs to see these gestures of peace and to hear words of hope and peace! I ask all the local churches, in addition to fasting, that they gather to pray for this intention. “Let us ask Mary to help us to respond to violence, to conflict and to war, with the power of dialogue, reconciliation and love. She is our mother: may she help us to find peace; all of us are her children! Help us, Mary, to overcome this most difficult moment and to dedicate ourselves each day to building in every situation an authentic culture of encounter and peace. Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us!”
