Sponsoring A Child in Need

Pope Francis has dedicated this year to St. Joseph!  One way to do something special this year to honor St. Joseph, patron saint of our parish, is to welcome an Unbound priest.  In the spirit of St. Joseph, who dedicated his life to care for a  child, please welcome to St. Joseph’s on the weekend of June 19 and 20 Fr. John Kirwin and hear his invitation to respond to the Gospel Call to serve the poor by sponsoring a child in need. 

Father Kirwin will tell us about the work of Unbound, a lay Catholic sponsorship ministry that helps children and elderly in 19 developing countries. To learn more, call (800) 875-6564 or visit Unbound online at www.unbound.org.

As a priest of the Diocese of Albany, New York, Father Kirwin not only worked for people in Catholic education as a high school teacher and campus minister but also in parishes a pastor. As a young man apprehensively embarking on a year of service, he had coffee with Servant of God Dorothy Day and was encouraged by her. Now, as a retired diocesan priest, he helps other priests in weekend parish support and serves where needed.

Anima Christi

The “Anima Christi” is a prayer found at the beginning of St. Ignatius of Loyola’s handbook, the “Spiritual Exercises,” which is designed to help spiritual directors as they guide retreatants through the major events of Jesus’ ministry. In doing so, their understanding about God’s boundless love for them is deepened at multiple levels. Al-though this prayer was not composed by St. Ignatius, founder of the Jesuits, it is a useful tool for finding God in all things and for understanding how His Divine Will is operational in our daily lives.

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within your wounds conceal me.
Do not permit me to be parted from you.
From the evil foe protect me.
At the hour of my death call me.
And bid me come to you,
to praise you with all your saints
for ever and ever.

On this Solemnity of The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi), may you be engraced to appreciate deeply the boundless love of God in your life and the true presence of Jesus in the Most Holy Eucharist!

With prayerful best wishes,
Fr. John Mahoney
