Rekolekcje zakonne Ojców i Braci Paulinów w Ameryce Print E-mail

Rekolekcje zakonne Ojców i Braci Paulinów w AmerycePrzez ostatnie dwa tygodnie odbywały się coroczne rekolekcje zakonne jakie mogli przeżywać Ojcowie i Bracia Paulini. Pierwszy tydzień rekolekcji miał miejsce w Kittaning (5-10 listopada), a drugi tydzień (12-17 listopada) w Amerykańskiej Częstochowie w Doylestown, wszystko zostało tak zaplanowane, aby każdy z Paulińskich zakonników mógł przeżyć ten błogosławiony czas sam na sam z Bogiem...

Czas rekolekcji to wielki dar także, albo nade wszystko dla zakonnika, aby mógł zawierzyć Bogu wszystkie te codzienne sprawy raz jeszcze, aby mógł dziękować za cały miniony rok, aby mógł prosić o światło i wszelkie dary Ducha Świętego na kolejny czas pracy duszpasterskiej, na kolejny czas życia zakonnego, czy kapłańskiego... To czas wspólnej i prywatnej modlitwy, czas wspólnego gromadzenia się przy Stole Słowa Bożego i Eucharystii, to czas medytacji, adoracji Najświętszego Sakramentu, a także czas zadumy i wielbienia Boga pochyląjac się nad grobami naszych zmarłych już Ojców i Braci Paulinów...

The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Print E-mail
Wednesday, November 21st The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

 

 Religious parents never fail by devout prayer to consecrate their children to God, His divine service and love, both before and after their birth. Some among the Jews, not content with this general consecration of their children, offered them to God in their infancy, by the hands of the priests in the Temple, to be brought up in quarters attached to the Temple, attending the priests and Levites in their sacred ministry. There were special divisions in these lodgings for the women and children dedicated to the divine service. (III Kings 6:5-9) We have examples of this special consecration of children in the person of Samuel, for example. Today the Church celebrates the feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Temple of Jerusalem. It is very probable that the holy prophet Simeon and the prophetess Anna, who witnessed the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple, as we read in the second chapter of the Gospel of Saint Luke (verses 25 ff.) had known His Mother as a little girl in the Temple and observed her truly unique sanctity.It is an ancient and very trustworthy tradition that the Blessed Virgin was thus solemnly offered in the Temple to God at the age of three by Her parents, Saint Anne and Saint Joachim.

Feast of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini Print E-mail
Tuesday, November 13th  11-13-saint_frances_xavier_cabrini-1.jpg

 

One of thirteen children raised on a farm, she received a convent education and training as a teacher. She tried to join the order at age of 18, but poor health prevented her from taking the veil. A priest asked her to teach at a girl's school, the House of Providence Orphanage in Cadagono, Italy, which she did for six years. She took religious vows in 1877, and acquitted herself so well at her work that when the orphanage closed in 1880, her bishop asked her to found the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to care for poor children in schools and hospitals. Pope Leo XIII then sent her to the United States to carry on this mission.

She and six Sisters arrived in New York in 1889. They worked among immigrants, especially Italians. Mother Cabrini founded 67 institutions, including schools, hospitals, and orphanages in the United States, Europe and South America. Like many of the people she worked with, Mother became a United States citizen during her life, and after her death she became the first US citizen to be canonized.

Po Mszy św. wszyscy wspólnie wyruszyliśmy w procesji na cmentarz, aby w modlitwie różańcowej prosić o życie wieczne dla tych wszystkich, którzy są nam tak bliscy, a z drugiej strony jakże dalecy przebywając w Domu Ojca...
