PRAYER OF THE CHALDEAN CATHOLIC PATRIARCH OF IRAQ:
O Lord, the plight of our country Iraq is deep, and the suffering of Christians is severe and frightening. Therefore, we ask You, O Lord, to spare our lives and to grant us patience and courage to continue our witness of Christian values with trust and hope. O Lord, peace is the foundation of life. Grant us the peace and stability that will enable us to live with each other without fear and anxiety and with dignity and joy. Glory be to you, O Lord, forever. Amen.
(Publication of this prayer has been approved and requested by Most Rev. Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston.)
Communal Anointing of the Sick:
February 11th, the Memorial of Our Lady of Lourdes, is the International Day of the Sick. In commeration of that St. Justin Martyr Parish, and the Mavericks group, will sponsor the Communal Anointing of the Sick at 7PM at St. Justins.
Anointing is for those who, in some sense, are really sick. It is NOT just a glorified blessing. It is one of the seven Sacraments instituted by Christ. To be anointed, a person should be: (1) actually ill, or (2) suffering the recurring effects of a chronic illness, or (3) suffering the painful effects of advanced age. The illness may be physical or emotional.
The effects of the Sacrament are the strengthening of the one anointed and sometimes the alleviation of the suffering.
Those to be anointed should enter St. Justins and be seated with their family members. At the doors of the church, the one to be anointed will be given a flower to pin on his/her lapel to signal the anointing priests who is to be anointed. On entering the church, those to be anointed and their family members will be seated in every other pew with an empty pew in between them. This will allow the anointing priests to move through the church easily during the anointings. During the actual anointing, those to be anointed, wearing their signal flower, will kneel (if possible), and the family members (not going to be anointed) will remain seated.
The Mavericks will direct everyone to his/her proper seating.
