Feast of the Nativity of the BVM

Masses for the feast of Our Lady's birth on Thursday, September 8, are as follow.

6pm Low Mass
Immaculate Conception

6:30pm High Mass
St Stephen

Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O sacred Virgin; give me strength against thine enemies, and against the enemy of the whole human race. Give me strength humbly to pray to thee. Give me strength to praise thee in prayer with all my powers, through the merits of thy most sacred nativity, which for the entire Christian world was a birth of joy, the hope and solace of its life. 

When thou wast born, O most holy Virgin, then was the world made light. 

Happy is thy stock, holy thy root, and blessed thy fruit, for thou alone as a virgin, filled with the Holy Spirit, didst merit to conceive thy God, as a virgin to bear Thy God, as a virgin to bring Him forth, and after His birth to remain a virgin. 

Have mercy therefore upon me a sinner, and give me aid, O Lady, so that just as thy nativity, glorious from the seed of Abraham, sprung from the tribe of Juda, illustrious from the stock of David, didst announce joy to the entire world, so may it fill me with true joy and cleanse me from every sin. 

Pray for me, O Virgin most prudent, that the gladsome joys of thy most helpful nativity may put a cloak over all my sins. 

O holy Mother of God, flowering as the lily, pray to thy sweet Son for me, a wretched sinner. Amen.

Immaculate Heart Solemn Mass

Fr David Ireland, pastor of Sacred Heart in South Euclid, would like for you all to know the following. 

In response to the most recent blasphemies during a "Black Mass" conducted in Oklahoma City this past August 15, the Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady, there will be a Solemn High Mass in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Monday, August 22 at 7:00 pm at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish, 1545 South Green Rd. South Euclid, Ohio.  This Holy Mass will be offered as a special act of reparation for these most serious sins of sacrilege against the Sacred Heart Jesus and against our Blessed Mother Mary.  Holy Mass will be preceded by the recitation of the Most Holy Rosary at 6:30 pm and will conclude with Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament.  For the honor of your Mother, show your filial love for our Most Blessed Lady, and join us Monday in consoling her Immaculate Heart!

And, courtesy of a Friend...

Archbishop Paul Coakley of Oklahoma City has called for fervent prayers from the global Catholic community in reparation for the blasphemous acts of a "Black Mass" conducted by a organized satanist group on the Feast of the Assumption, Monday, August 15, 2016.
The ceremony took place at the Civic Center in Oklahoma City and was deliberately timed to mock the Marian feast day.  In addition to the public desecration of the Most Holy Eucharist, the satanic ritual included the grotesque desecration of a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary 
Archbishop Coakley told the Catholic News Agency: “I am encouraging the faithful and people of good will to pray together for healing and peace, and for the Lord to watch over our community and protect us from evil and its many destructive and violent manifestations.  I also ask that we pray for the conversion of these men and for all who have not yet come to know the Lord of Life. 
The Archbishop went on to express his disappointment in the local government for not preventing the “abhorrent act” from taking place, despite the 150,000+ signatures petitioning local authorities to intervene. 
The satanic ceremony was led by registered sex-offender Dastur Adam Daniels who told Oklahoma City News that the Catholic Church was infringing on his religious liberty by attempting to block the ceremony from taking place 
Prominent American canonist and Vatican prelate Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke is among Catholic leaders who have expressed their shock and sadness about the event. His Eminence has encouraged the faithful to pray the Rosary in reparation for the event and to pray for the conversion of the perpetrators of this sacrilege.
