Liturgy


Welcoming everyone to proclaim and live the joy of the Gospel.

 

The Mass Explained
The Church says that the celebration of the liturgy is the heart of everything we do and everything we believe. But what is the meaning of liturgy? What is the importance of our participation? Where do the words we pray during the liturgy come from? What is the significance of the community, the symbols and the rituals? This five-part video series below on the liturgy is designed to help answer these questions and many more. Each video covers a different part of the Mass, making it easy to reflect on the event that the Church calls the source and summit of our Christian life.

PRAYER FOR CORONAVIRUS

Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas.
We fly to you today as your beloved children.
We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana.

Pray for us, loving Mother,
and gain for our nation and world,
and for all our families and loved ones,
the protection of your holy angels,
that we may be spared the worst of this illness.

For those already afflicted,
we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.
Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful,
wipe away their tears and help them to trust.

In this time of trial and testing,
teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind.
Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts.

We come to you with confidence,
knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother,
health of the sick and cause of our joy.

Shelter us under the mantle of your protection,
keep us in the embrace of your arms,
help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus.

Amen.

 

-USCCB
