Pope Francis: daily Mass for Friday

(Vatican Radio) The Christian ought always to be joyful as one who goes to a wedding. This was the message of Pope Francis in his remarks following the Gospel at Mass on Friday morning in the Domus Sanctae Marthae chapel in the Vatican. The Holy Father further stressed the need to overcome the temptation to put the novelty of the Gospel into old wineskins, and repeated that the Sacrament of Matrimony is the image of Christ’s union with the Church. Listen: RealAudioMP3

“When the bridegroom is present,” said Pope Francis, “there can be no fasting, no sadness.” He was reflecting on the response that Christ gives to the scribes in the daily Gospel reading, taken from the Gospel according to St. Luke (5:33-39). The Holy Father underlined that the Lord often returns to this image of the Bridegroom, saying that Jesus shows us the relationship between himself and the Church as essentially nuptial. “I think,” he said, “that precisely this is the most profound reason for which the Church has such great care for the Sacrament of Marriage and calls it “great sacrament” – for it is truly the image of the union of Christ with His Church.” Pope Francis then focused on two attitudes that the Christian ought to have in this nuptial relationship: first, that of joy, “because nuptials are a great celebration”:

Holy Land joins Pope Francis’ day of prayer for peace in Syria, Mideast

(Vatican Radio) On Saturday, Christians in the Holy Land will be observing the day called by Pope Francis for fasting and prayer for peace in Syria. The Catholic Ordinaries of the Holy Land together with the Latin Parish in Jerusalem have invited all Christians there to join in the observances to pray for peace in the Middle East, Syria and Egypt.

Auxiliary Bishop of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, William Shomali told Tracey McClure “we took very seriously this wish of his Holiness. The Catholics of Jerusalem will meet at Gethsemane Church on Saturday evening at 8:30 p.m. for an hour of adoration. We invited all the Catholic community of Jerusalem, even the non-Catholic communities – some of them will participate. This is the wish of the Holy Father also.”

Listen to the interview with Bishop Shomali: RealAudioMP3
The prayer vigil at the Basilica of Gethsemane will be followed by a candlelight procession in the Garden of Olives. The Crypt of the Armenian Catholic Church at the fourth station of the Via Dolorosa will also remain open for private and silent prayer from 7 pm until midnight Saturday in union with pilgrims gathered for the vigil in St. Peter’s square in Rome.

Though the “major event” will take place in Jerusalem, Bishop Shomali explains that priests in parishes across the diocese are planning their own spiritual activities and vigils. “for example in Ramallah, where we have one of our biggest parishes, the mass will be celebrated in the church of the Greek Catholics. Then the faithful will go to the Islamic club in Ramallah with candles in procession and Muslims will join them until they reach the Latin Catholic church. In this way, they are including with them non-Christians because prayer is not only for Catholics. It is for everyone.”

Pope Francis meets President Morales of Bolivia in the Vatican
2013-09-06 Vatican Radio



(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis received in audience the Bolivian head of state Juan Evo Morales on Friday and held talks on bilateral and international issues. A communique from the Holy See’s Press Office described the talks as cordial and said the two leaders discussed the socio-economic situation in Bolivia and the struggle against social inequality and poverty. They also discussed the important role played by the Catholic Church in Bolivia in the field of education, healthcare, family support and welfare provision for children and the elderly.

2013-09-06 17:58:07

September 6, 2013. (Romereports.com) With a friendly reunion with Pope Francis, Bolivian President Evo Morales closed off his European visit. In contrast to the tense relationships between the chief executive and the Bolivian Catholic Church, the atmosphere for this audience was affectionate.

“How are you Mr. President? Good morning!”
“Your Holiness. What a joy to see you again.”
“I'm glad to see you.”

“For me, you are Brother Francis.”
“That's how it should be.”

Good morning!  Hi, seahorse! 

Good idea--How to Pray the Rosary...

http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/devotionals/rosaries/how-to-pray-the-rosary.cfm

How to Pray the Rosary
 
 The Rosary is a Scripture-based prayer. It begins with the Apostles' Creed, which summarizes the great mysteries of the Catholic faith. The Our Father, which introduces each mystery, is from the Gospels. The first part of the Hail Mary is the angel's words announcing Christ's birth and Elizabeth's greeting to Mary. St. Pius V officially added the second part of the Hail Mary. The Mysteries of the Rosary center on the events of Christ's life. There are four sets of Mysteries: Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious and––added by Pope John Paul II in 2002––the Luminous.

The repetition in the Rosary is meant to lead one into restful and contemplative prayer related to each Mystery. The gentle repetition of the words helps us to enter into the silence of our hearts, where Christ's spirit dwells. The Rosary can be said privately or with a group.

The Five Joyful Mysteries are traditionally prayed on the Mondays, Saturdays, and Sundays of Advent:
1.The Annunciation
2.The Visitation
3.The Nativity
4.The Presentation in the Temple
5.The Finding in the Temple

The Five Sorrowful Mysteries are traditionally prayed on the Tuesday, Friday, and Sundays of Lent:
1.The Agony in the Garden
2.The Scourging at the Pillar
3.The Crowning with Thorns
4.The Carrying of the Cross
5.The Crucifixion and Death

The Five Glorious Mysteries are traditionally prayed on the Wednesday and Sundays outside of Lent and Advent: 1.The Resurrection
2.The Ascension
3.The Descent of the Holy Spirit
4.The Assumption
5.The Coronation of Mary

The Five Luminous Mysteries are traditionally prayed on Thursdays:
1.The Baptism of Christ in the Jordan
2.The Wedding Feast at Cana
3.Jesus' Proclamation of the Coming of the Kingdom of God
4.The Transfiguration
5.The Institution of the Eucharist

Pope Francis Leads Global Prayer Vigil for Syria
Sept. 07, 2013


Filippo Monteforte / AFP / Getty Images

 
The prayer service began when four Swiss guards processed through the square with the icon Salus Populi Romani, Mary, the Queen of Peace and the Protectress of the Roman people. The Pope led the Rosary recitation, a meditation, and a Eucharist ceremony. Bible readings from the Gospel of Luke focused on Mary, and thousands of people in the square followed along with a 51-page booklet the Vatican produced for the service. Priests heard confessions under the St. Peters colonnade.

The last time a Pope called a similar day of prayer and fasting was in 2003, when Pope John Paul II did the same before the Iraq war. The Vatican strongly opposed the US-led military actions in Iraq, and now, a decade later, Pope Francis continues to speak out against a potential military strike in the war-torn region.

The World Council of Churches, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and religious leaders around the world urged their followers to join the Pope’s call and spend Saturday in prayer. Catholics in Jerusalem met at the Church of Gesthemane. In Mumbai they gathered at the Cathedral of the Holy Name. A giant peace flag was also raised in Assisi, Italy, the hometown of Saint Francis, for whom Pope Francis is named.

Pope Francis Leads Peace Prayer Vigil For Syria With 100,000 At St. Peter's Square At Vatican (PHOTOS)
09/07/13 07:37 PM ET EDT

VATICAN CITY -- Tens of thousands of people filled St. Peter's Square for a four-hour Syria peace vigil late Saturday, answering Pope Francis' call for a grassroots cry for peace that was echoed by Christians and non-Christians alike in Syria and in vigils around the world.

The Vatican estimated about 100,000 took part in the Rome event, making it one of the largest rallies in the West against proposed U.S.-led military action against the Syrian regime following the Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack near Damascus.

Francis spent most of the vigil in silent prayer, but during his speech he issued a heartfelt plea for peace, denouncing those who are "captivated by the idols of dominion and power" and destroy God's creation through war.

Pope Francis: homily at peace vigil

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis participated in a vigil of fasing and prayer for peace with the faithful of Rome and pilgrims to the city on Saturday, September 7, 2013. Below, please find the full text of Pope Francis remarks in English translation. RealAudioMP3

Homily of His Holiness Pope Francis. Vigil of Prayer and Fasting.

“And God saw that it was good” (Gen 1:12, 18, 21, 25). The biblical account of the beginning of the history of the world and of humanity speaks to us of a God who looks at creation, in a sense contemplating it, and declares: “It is good”. This allows us to enter into God’s heart and, precisely from within him, to receive his message.
 
We can ask ourselves: what does this message mean? What does it say to me, to you, to all of us?

1. It says to us simply that this, our world, in the heart and mind of God, is the “house of harmony and peace”, and that it is the space in which everyone is able to find their proper place and feel “at home”, because it is “good”. All of creation forms a harmonious and good unity, but above all humanity, made in the image and likeness of God, is one family, in which relationships are marked by a true fraternity not only in words: the other person is a brother or sister to love, and our relationship with God, who is love, fidelity and goodness, mirrors every human relationship and brings harmony to the whole of creation. God’s world is a world where everyone feels responsible for the other, for the good of the other. This evening, in reflection, fasting and prayer, each of us deep down should ask ourselves: Is this really the world that I desire? Is this really the world that we all carry in our hearts? Is the world that we want really a world of harmony and peace, in ourselves, in our relations with others, in families, in cities, in and between nations? And does not true freedom mean choosing ways in this world that lead to the good of all and are guided by love?

Pope Francis at Angelus: Peace requires time and patience; No to wars waged to sell arms



(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis has urged everyone to keep praying for peace in the Middle East, saying the search for peace is a long one that requires patience and perseverance. Speaking during his Angelus address, the Pope also condemned the proliferation of wars and conflicts and questioned whether they were wars about problems or commercial wars to sell arms on the black market. His remarks came just hours after thousands of people attended a prayer vigil in St. Peter’s Square on Saturday evening as part of the events for the special day of prayer and fasting for peace in Syria and the world that was called by the Pope and was marked by people across the globe in different ways.

Dear brothers and sisters, good morning!

Hi, grace-land, Thank-you!   

If you ever come across the video of Pope John Paul, in Mexico, when the Mexican's were tossing, rose petals, and serenading, John Paul, will you, please, let me know?

I believe I saw it live on Etwn.com.  I have looked high and low. The song was so beauiful
even though it was in Spanish Smile I am thinking it may be copyrighted. I wish I knew the song.

I wish check out, Mr.Pavarotti, Thank-you. 
You are wonderful.  Smile

Seahorse,

ABC televised the 5th trip by Pope John Paul II to Mexico in 2002 for the canonization of Juan Diego.  That's the broadcast that I watched and saw roses and rose pedals.  It was very dramatic, colorful and beautiful!  Maybe that's the program that you watched?  I found a short video of it in Spanish.  Here it is--with a link to a Vatican site.

Seahorse,

I don't remember any of the hymns/songs that were sung during the 2002 canonization mass; but I know that he loved a song written by a Spanish priest, I think.  Maybe it was sung that day and is the song that you remembered?

At this link, Pope John Paul II is heard singing it, with lyrics in Spanish--

Seahorse,

Out of curiosity, I continued to look for a song that might have been sung at a telecast from Mexico that you saw--that Pope John Paul II liked, too. lol  Here is another song that was sung during a visit to Mexico.  Maybe it's the song that you remembered?

Pope at daily mass: Christian hope is Jesus personified

(Vatican Radio) The virtue of hope, perhaps less understood than those of faith and charity, should never be confused with human optimism which is more a state of mind. For a Christian, hope is Jesus personified in the Eucharist and in the Word. That’s the essence of what Pope Francis said at this morning’s daily mass at the Vatican guesthouse Santa Marta.

Hope is a gift from Jesus; hope is Jesus himself and bears his name, Pope Francis said in his homily. But it’s not the kind of hope that you find in a person who usually looks at “a half full glass” – that’s simply “optimism” and “optimism is a human attitude that depends on many things.”

Recalling the Gospel reading in which Jesus heals a man with a paralyzed hand and is criticized by the scribes and Pharisees, Pope Francis observed that through his miracle, Jesus shows them how their’s “is not the way of liberty.” “Liberty and hope,” the Pope said, “go together: where there is no hope, there can be no liberty.” And, the Pope said that with that gesture, Jesus shows us the power of renewal through Him.

“Jesus, hope, renews everything. He’s a constant miracle." Christ, the Pope said, embodies this “miracle of renewal” in the Church, “in my life, your life, in our life.” “Christ is the reason for our hope,” he said, “and this hope does not delude.”
