Jun 24 (Tue) NATIVITY OF ST. JOHN BAPTIST  - SOLEMNITY (HDO)
This week we pray especially for our friends in the parish of Sacré-Coeur, Toronto, as together we celebrate the patron saint of Canada and the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart,  their patronal festival.  No English Mass is scheduled at STM/Sacré-Coeur for June 24. You may fulfill your obligation at any Mass that day.

ALMIGHTY God, by whose providence thy servant John the Baptist was wonderfully born, and sent to prepare the way of thy Son our Saviour by preaching repentance: Make us so to follow his doctrine and holy life, that we may truly repent according to his preaching; and after his example constantly speak the truth, boldly rebuke vice, and patiently suffer for the truth's sake; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Friday, Jun 27 SACRED HEART OF JESUS  [SOLEMNITY]



FATHER, we rejoice in the gifts of love we have received from the heart of thy Son. Open our hearts to share his life, and continue to bless us with his love. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.




Monday, June 30  -  STS. PETER & PAUL, APOSTLES [SOLEMNITY]



ALMIGHTY God, whose blessed apostles Peter and Paul glorified thee by their martyrdom: Grant that thy Church, instructed by their teaching and example, and knit together in unity by thy Spirit, may ever stand firm upon the one foundation, which is Jesus Christ our Lord; who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
