Mass availability and Rosary
Dear Parishioners of Fatima,
A note to remind everyone that a Rosary is said before each Mass about one half hour before the start of Mass. Also, there is still plenty of room available for the Masses for those who want to attend!
Also, starting yesterday, Ascension Thursday, is the traditional beginning of the mother of all Novenas: The 9 days before Pentecost. This is the original Novena that inspired all others and is the Biblical basis for the tradition of praying 9 days to obtain a favor from the Most High God! Christ said to knock, ask, and seek, and to not be weary in asking. It is common for Divine Providence to require more than a 'one off' prayer for those things we desire because prolonged prayer expands our soul in trust, humility and loving patience which is all very soul beautifying and pleasing to Our Lord. Perseverance in prayer is part of the Gospel plan and the teaching of Wisdom, Who is Jesus Himself. May the Holy Spirit descend on our Parish during these 9 days. Amen.
Our Lady of Fatima
