“Reading the Bible for Understanding” 

by Fr. Phil Thompson

Is your family Bible just a keepsake in the living room, or is it a life-giving means to spiritual growth for you?  Are you afraid you won’t understand what you read?  Jesus said  many times “Do not be afraid.”  Come and find out how to crack open the pages.

Prayer of the Faithful

3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

January 21-22, 2017

Presider:   God promises to lighten our load and free us from oppression. Let us lift up our prayer, confident that God’s reign is near.

For the Church. In word and action may it reveal the merciful face of God. We pray to the Lord…

For the peace and prosperity that we all long for. May the light of faith guide all who suffer exile, oppression, fear, and shame. We pray to the Lord…

For our country as we observe the anniversary of Roe versus Wade.  May the silent voice of the unborn move our hearts and minds to support the sacredness of human life at every stage, from conception to natural death. We pray to the Lord…

For an end to divisions between nations, in communities, and within families. May unity and harmony dwell in our hearts and homes. We pray to the Lord…

For all who are called to follow Jesus, especially those called to the priesthood or religious life. May they be open to God’s calling, however or whenever it may come. We pray to the Lord…

For the discouraged, lonely, and sick. May the light of Christ's healing grace ease the darkness of pain and suffering. We pray to the Lord…

For those who have died. May they rejoice forever in God’s Kingdom. We pray to the Lord…

For the special prayers that we have brought with us today. (pause) We pray to the Lord…

Presider:  Loving God, you are light in our darkness. Give us the desire to know you more deeply and the strength to follow you wherever we are called to go. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

GET MORE INVOLVED AT MASS!

Ushers

Are you young, old, male, female, middle or high school,........... anyone looking for a way to be more involved at St. Pius?  Try volunteering as an usher!  We need friendly, helpful people who are willing to assist with the collection and communion at our weekend liturgies.  No training is required; we let you “shadow” an usher once or twice to get the hang of it.  After that, we’ll schedule you as often as you’d like at whichever Mass you prefer!  (Our greatest needs are for the 4:30 and 11:00 Masses.)  If you feel that God is calling you to serve your parish through this ministry, please contact Marianne in the Liturgy Office at 393-4445 or liturgy2@crpiusx.org.  Team up with your husband/wife, son/daughter, mom/dad, Confirmation sponsor, friend, etc., and make this a fun way to share your time and talent!
