Happy New Year Everyone,
Blessings be to you all from our Lord Jesus, our Blessed Mother Mary, her chaste spouse St. Joseph, and all the angels and saints. May this new year bring you God’s blessings full of faith, hope, love and good health of your body, mind and soul. Please know that each day of your life is a gift from God so that you may love God, trust in Him, worship Him, serve Him and bring His love and joy to others. Please join me for the special Holy Mass of Obligation to ask our Blessed Mother Mary, the Mother of God – Jesus - to pray for us and our family and friends. Our Masses are Monday, December 31st at 6:30pm and Tuesday, January 1st at 8am and 9:30am.
On this New Year’s Day, Tuesday, January 1st at 10am, at the Cathedral, let us join our Bishop Carl Kemme as he consecrates our diocese of Wichita to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Mary prays for us, our diocese and all people throughout the world to love our Lord Jesus by loving one another as ourselves. Here is a special prayer Bishop has asked us to pray: Most Holy Virgin Mary, tender Mother of all, we consecrate the Catholic Diocese of Wichita all our parishes, schools, religious institutes, chapels, hospitals, clinics, all our ministries, all our families and each and every person to your Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, O Queen of the Most Holy Rosary. Please accept our consecration, Dearest Mother, and use us as you wish to accomplish your designs upon the world. O sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary and Queen of the world, rule over us together with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, Our King. Save us from the spreading flood of paganism, relativism, heresy and apostasy. Kindle in our hearts and homes the love of purity, the practice of virtuous life, an ardent zeal for souls, a deeper love for Christ your Son in the Eucharist and fidelity to all the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church We come with confidence to you, O Throne of Grace and Mother of Fair Love. Inflame us with the same Divine Fire which has in flamed your own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Make our hearts and homes your shrine and through us make the Heart of Jesus together with you rule triumphant in every heart and home. Amen
