After Mass this Monday from 6pm-7pm there will take place the Solemn Reception of new members of the Maidens of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament, closing with Benediction. The votive Mass of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal- which is the insgnia the Maidens wear, will be celebrated at our normal 5:15pm Mass.
This Sunday, May 12th, is Mother's Day, a day in which we should honor most of all our Most Blessed Mother, who has given us life in Christ, the fruit of Her womb. All are invited to bring flowers which will be placed in vases on a float with the statue of Our Lady, with which we will process after the 8:45 A.M. Mass and then crown with flowers.
Flowers may be brought in vases or loose and will be placed at the feet of Our Lady or on the float. As we cannot leave our arrangement in the chapel, one may take their flowers home afterwards and give them to their mother, the domestic image of the Blessed Mother.
Due to an event at St. Agnes Parish, our Monday Mass this week will be at 4pm.
This Sunday, May 5th, we resume our 1:15pm Mass Time, at Resurrection Church in Fort Myers
Saturday, May 4th, we return to our regular 6:45am Mass time at St. Agnes Chapel.
On the Octave of Easter, the Liturgy speaks to us in the Epistle (1 Jn 5) of the blood and water which flowed forth from the Savior's side and which is applied to us after our Baptism in the Sacrament and Confession, instituted in todays Gospel (Jn 20). In honor of God's mercy revealed to us on this day, a plenary indulgence, under the usual conditions, is granted to those who take part in the prayers and devotions held in honor of Divine Mercy, or who, in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament exposed or in the tabernacle, recite the Our Father and the Creed, adding a devout prayer to the Merciful Lord Jesus. If unable to get to church for the above, one may gain the same indulgence by reciting the aforesaid prayers before a devout image of Our Merciful Lord Jesus.
