October 7 is the 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time and the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. It is also Respect Life Sunday. I invite our parishioners and friends to stand with us on Niagara Falls Boulevard from 2 PM to 3 PM   to prayerfully give witness to the sanctity of human life in the womb and in all stages of our lives. (Cars will leave our parking lot at 1:15 PM.) After this hour of peaceful public witness we will gather at 4:00 PM until 4:45 PM for Adoration and Benediction in the Church of the Annunciation. At this time Catholics around the United States will be praying before the Blessed Sacrament for Healing of victims and for Reparation for priest abuse and mishandling of these grave offenses by bishops. You can also stay and join us for 5:00 PM Sunday Mass. We pray:

God of endless love, ever caring, ever strong, always present, always just:

You gave your only Son to save us by his blood on the cross.

Gentle Jesus, shepherd of peace, join to your own suffering the pain of all who have been hurt in body, mind, and spirit by those who betrayed the trust placed in them.

Hear the cries of our brothers and sisters who have been gravely harmed, and the cries of those who love them. Soothe their restless hearts with hope, steady their shaken spirits with faith. Grant them justice for their cause, enlightened by your truth.

Holy Spirit, comforter of hearts, heal your people’s wounds and transform brokenness into wholeness. Grant us the courage and wisdom, humility and grace, to act with justice. Breathe wisdom into our prayers and labors. Grant that all harmed by abuse may find peace in justice. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Fr. Gene Ulrich
