We wait in anticipation of this year’s Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help beginning on June 19th. And of course the 3 nights of prayer, preaching, and reflection which takes place the evenings of June 25th, 26th and 27th at 7:00 p.m. at St. Patrick’s Shrine Church in downtown Toronto. This year’s homilist will be Redemptorist, Fr. Peter Hill from San Antonio, Texas. For more information on the Novena and Triduum contact St. Patrick’s Church at 416-598-3269.
Know that your intentions will be remembered in our Masses and prayers at the Shrine. The Perpetual Help TV Devotions has been airing on television since 1996. We hope that the music, prayers and homilies continue to be a source of inspiration to all who watch the program.
Included in our prayers especially are those people, who because of age and infirmities, are house-bound. We entrust their concerns, and those of their caregivers, to Mary, Our Blessed Mother, and to her son, Jesus. If there is one consistent petition we receive from viewers it is for the needs of children and grandchildren who perhaps do not attend Church regularly if at all. Know that the Lord remains close to them. Our God loves all whom He has created. Be assured that the goodness you see in your children and grandchildren are signs of God’s grace active within them.
This summer we see the amalgamation of the Ukrainian, the French, and the English Redemptorists into one governing body called a Province. Earlier in 2019, Fr. Charles Duval was elected Provincial Superior. In the year ahead, if you are a member of any Redemptorist parish within Canada you will have the opportunity to meet Fr. Charles. Please keep him and the members of the newly formed Redemptorist Province in your prayers. Pray also for an increase in priestly vocations to minister to the needs of God’s people across our great country.
Be assured of our prayers for you and your loved ones whenever we kneel in prayer before the Father of all Mercies.
In the Redeemer,
Fr. Babu Mathew, C.Ss.R.
