Prayer for a Resurgence of Christianity in America and the Re-election of Donald Trump: Almighty and Eternal God, King of Kings and Lord of Lords: graciously turn Your gaze to us who invoke You with confidence. Bless us, citizens of the United States of America; grant peace and prosperity to our Nation; illuminate those who govern us so that they may commit themselves to the common good, in respect for Your Holy Law. Protect those who, defending the inviolable principles of the Natural Law and Your Commandments, must face the repeated assaults of the Enemy of the human race. Keep in the hearts of Your children, courage for the truth, love for virtue and perseverance in the midst of trials. Make our families grow in the example that Our Lord has given us, together with His Most Holy Mother and Saint Joseph in the home of Nazareth; give to our fathers and mothers the gift of Strength, to educate wisely the children with which You have blessed them. Give courage to those who, in spiritual combat, fight the good fight as soldiers of Christ against the furious forces of the children of darkness. Keep each one of us, O Lord, in Your Most Sacred Heart, and above all him whom Your Providence has placed at the head of our Nation. Bless the President of the United States of America, so that aware of his responsibility and his duties, he may be a knight of justice, a defender of the oppressed, a firm bulwark against Your enemies, and a proud supporter of the children of light. Place the United States of America and the whole world under the mantle of the Queen of Victories, our Unconquered Leader in battle, the Immaculate Conception. It is thanks to her, and through Your Mercy, that the hymn of praise rises to you, O Lord, from the children whom You have redeemed in the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Written by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano for The Remnant Rosary Crusade for the Re-election of Donald Trump (see The Remnant website)

All Masses, confessions and regularly scheduled services and devotions will resume at their normal times beginning today! This coming Saturday, August 15, is the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary; it is a Holyday of Obligation, meaning you must attend Mass under pain of mortal sin. For that Saturday ONLY, the three Masses will be at 8:00 AM, 10:00 AM and 12:30 PM. There will be no evening Mass. A note on Sunday and holyday attendance at Mass: you must arrive in time to hear the Gospel of the day in Latin and you must stay to hear the entirety of the Last Gospel, “In principio erat Verbum”. Those failing, you fail as well to fulfill your
- We want to acknowledge the work our volunteers generously provided in the set-up and clean-up due to the roofing project. It’s always satisfying to know there are parishioners we can count on to lend a hand when it’s needed!!!
