St. Frances Cabrini Church

Colerain, Ohio

Holy Virgin of Guadalupe,
Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas.   

We fly to you today as your beloved children.
We ask you to intercede for us with your Son,
as you did at the wedding in Cana.

Pray for us, loving Mother,
and gain for our nation and world,
and for all our families and loved ones,
the protection of your holy angels,
that we may be spared the worst of this illness.

For those already afflicted,
we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.
Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful,
wipe away their tears and help them to trust.

In this time of trial and testing,
teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind.
Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts.

We come to you with confidence,
knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother,
health of the sick and cause of our joy.

Shelter us under the mantle of your protection,
keep us in the embrace of your arms,
help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus. Amen.     

Archbishop José H. Gomez

Preparing for Mass at Home

I found a wonderful resource for preparing for Mass when you are homebound. Please take a look at it. I think it is very good. Click here, or click on that same name between the two pictures.

Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina is a way of praying with the Scriptures. I have spoken of it before. However, now is a great time to learn more about it since our only option at this point is praying at home. Below are three good instructional articles/videos:

  • The U.S. Bishops' Conference has provided a moderately sized article. Click here.
  • A short article available on the Busted Halo website. Click here.
  • A two minute video is provided by a Benedictine monastery in Kansas. Click here.

Finally, a recommended book entitled St. Joseph Guide to Lectio Divino is available for a better understanding (aimed at the average person in the pew). Click here.

News and Useful Information

Check Website Often

Check this website frequently for news. Right now this is the only way, besides the mail, that I can communicate with the parish.

I say "Right now" because this crisis has convinced me of the need for a couple of things. One of them is a way that I can send a message to everyone (or to a whole smaller group). More on that later.

Best Overall Resource

The U.S. Bishops have provided many very good prayer resources for us during this difficult time. Go to their website by clicking here, and browse the resources. 

Did you know that you can read The Word among Us online. It is offered to you free of charge during the current crisis. Click here.

Pro-life Democrats make the case for a 22-week abortion ban in Colorado

Denver, Colo., Oct 20, 2020 / 07:01 pm (CNA).- As Colorado voters consider a ballot measure to ban abortion after 22 weeks of pregnancy, pro-life Democrats have been vocal in support, stressing its mainstream appeal and the need to give care to vulnerable human beings who can survive outside of the womb.

“When people realize abortion is allowed up to birth for any reason in Colorado most are shocked. People travel from all over the U.S. and even the world to Colorado to get late-term abortions,” Kristin Vail, vice president of Democrats for Life of Colorado, told CNA Oct. 19. “I don’t think people want our state to be known for that.”
