Join us every Thursday for

Health Care Holy Hours

Prayer for the Sick and Those who Care for Them

On Thursday, August 11, we will celebrate the feast of Saint Clare, patron saint of televisions. Tradition states that during Christmas in 1252, Saint Clare was too ill to attend Mass. Her disappointment was alleviated when she realized that her lonely cell was better lodging than Mary and Joseph found. After meditating on the mystery of Christmas, her cell burst with bright light from the candles ablaze at the Church, the walls shook from the sound of the great organ, and she was able to watch the celebrant and privately participate in the Mass. Miraculously, God had brought the Christmas Mass to her. We will pray for the sick and elderly who watch Mass online when they are unable to physically attend at this Holy Hour.

On Thursday, August 18, we will look forward to the memorial of Pope Saint Pius X (August 21). His devotion to the Eucharist earned him the honorific of “Pope of the Blessed Sacrament.” At this Holy Hour, we will pray for the frequent and devout reception of Holy Communion under his patronage.
