Prayer Chain at St. Benedict!
In these trying times, there are many needs within our community. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we need prayer warriors to intercede for one another and hold each other up in prayer with Jesus to the Eternal Father.
If you would like to be part of the Prayer Chain Team by praying for fellow parishioners and their friends and family, please email: [email protected]. You will be forwarded prayer requests by email.
Also, you may begin to send prayer requests right now!
A Message from Fr. Goodyear
Brothers and Sisters,
May 13, 2021 was the 104th anniversary of the apparitions of Fatima. It was on May 13, 1917, that Our Lady appeared to three children. Lucia asked her where she came from and she responded, “I come from Heaven.” Our Lady wore a white mantle edged with gold and held a rosary in her hand and said, “say the Rosary every day, to bring peace to the world and an end to the war.”
She also revealed that the children would suffer, and that Francisco and Jacinta would be taken to Heaven very soon, but Lucia would live longer to spread her message and devotion to the Immaculate Heart.
She exhorted the Church to pray and offer sacrifices to God in order that peace may come upon the world, and that the trials may be averted. She predicted the sufferings that would come upon humanity by the abandoning of the Christian Faith and embracing Communist totalitarianism.
On May 13, 1981, the 64th anniversary of the apparitions, the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II took place in St. Peter's Square. The Holy Father attributed his escape from certain death to the intervention of Our Lady saying that, “one hand pulled the trigger, another guided the bullet.” The Pope sent the bullet to Fatima to be placed in the crown on the statue of Our Lady of Fatima.
Brothers and Sisters, looking around at our country and our world, I believe that it is urgent to turn to Our Lady of Fatima and to Her Son, Our Eucharistic Lord. I would ask you to please consider stopping in to visit Jesus in Adoration tomorrow, the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, and to pray before the relic (blood-stained clothing from the assassination attempt) of St. John Paul II. If you cannot make it to adoration, I would ask you to please consider praying the rosary - perhaps as a family - as Our Lady asked us to do.
Most sincerely in Christ,
Fr. Michael Goodyear
