"Pray, Hope & Don't Worry" : Padre Pio & His Friends from Long island

Padre Pio Words of Faith (from the padrepiodevotions.org website)

“Through the study of books one seeks God; by meditation one finds Him.”

“The life of a Christian is nothing but a perpetual struggle against self; there is no flowering of the soul to the beauty of its perfection except at the price of pain.”

“Whoever does not meditate is like someone who never looks in the mirror before going out, doesn’t bother to see if he’s today, and may go out dirty without knowing it. The person who meditates and turns his mind to God, who is the mirror of his soul, seeks to know his fault, tries to correct them, moderates his impulses, and puts his conscience in order."

Divine Mercy Sunday :

The feast of the Divine Mercy is celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter Sunday; Lent is a perfect time to prepare ourselves for this great feast of Mercy, placing our trust in the mercy of God and especially by practicing deeds of mercy. The first Sunday after Easter is the Feast of Mercy, there must also be deeds of mercy, which are to arise out of love for Jesus. You are to show mercy to our neighbors always and everywhere. You must not shrink from this or try to absolve yourself from it." (Diary 742).
Sorrow For Sin

"I never reject a contrite heart" (1485). "Sooner would heaven and earth turn into nothingness than would My mercy not embrace a trusting soul" (1777). "On the cross, the fountain of My mercy was opened wide by the lance for all souls — no one have I excluded! (1182).

Novena & Caplet to the Holy Spirit:

The novena in honor of the Holy Spirit is the oldest of all novenas since it was first made at the direction of Our Lord Himself when He sent His apostles back to Jerusalem to await the coming of the Holy Spirit on the first Pentecost. It is still the only novena officially prescribed by the Church. Addressed to the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, it is a powerful plea for the light and strength and love so sorely needed by every Christian.
It commemorates the nine days between the Ascension of Our Lord and the descent of the Holy Spirit on the first Pentecost Sunday. During this time Our Lady and the twelve Apostles prayed in the upper room for the coming of the Paraclete.

Prayer for the Gifts of the Holy Spirit - Saint Alphonsus Liguori

Veni Creator
Come, O Creator Spirit blest! And in our souls take up Thy rest;

Come with Thy grace and heavenly aid, To fill the hearts which Thou hast made. Great Paraclete! To Thee we cry, O highest gift of God most high! O font of life! O fire of love! And sweet anointing from above.
Thou in Thy sevenfold gifts art known, The finger of God's hand we own; The promise of the Father, Thou! Who dost the tongue with power endow.
Kindle our senses from above, And make our hearts overflow with love; With patience firm and virtue high The weakness of our flesh supply.
Far from us drive the foe we dread, And grant us Thy true peace instead; So shall we not, with Thee for guide, Turn from the path of life aside.
Oh, may Thy grace on us bestow The Father and the Son to know, And Thee, through endless times confessed, Of both, the eternal Spirit blest.
All glory while the ages run Be to the Father and the Son Who rose from death; the same to Thee, O Holy Spirit, eternally.
Amen.

Holy Days of Obligation


Latin Rite
The Code of Canon Law provides the following general norm for the Latin Rite of the universal Church:

Canon 1246
1. Sunday is the day on which the paschal mystery is celebrated in light of the apostolic tradition and is to be observed as the foremost holy day of obligation in the universal Church. Also to be observed are the day of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Epiphany, the Ascension and the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, Holy Mary Mother of God and her Immaculate Conception and Assumption, Saint Joseph, the Apostles Saints Peter and Paul, and finally, All Saints.

2. However, the conference of bishops can abolish certain holy days of obligation or transfer them to a Sunday with prior approval of the Apostolic See.

Depending on one's nation one could have more or fewer than the ten listed in the Code. For example, the United States adds her patron (The Immaculate Conception), as does Ireland (St. Patrick), Canada (St. Joseph) and many other countries, while dropping several from the list. The following is the complementary norm for the United States, providing for 6 holy days, in addition to all Sundays:

On December 13, 1991 the members of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops of the United States of American made the following general decree concerning holy days of obligation for Latin rite Catholics:

In addition to Sunday, the days to be observed as holy days of obligation in the Latin Rite dioceses of the United States of America, in conformity with canon 1246, are as follows:

1) January 1, the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God
2) Thursday of the Sixth Week of Easter, the solemnity of the Ascension
3) August 15, the solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
4) November 1, the solemnity of All Saints
5) December 8, the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception
6) December 25, the solemnity of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ

[list numbers are not in original]

Whenever January 1, the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, or August 15, the solemnity of the Assumption, or November 1, the solemnity of All Saints, falls on a Saturday or on a Monday, the precept to attend Mass is abrogated.

This decree of the Conference of Bishops was approved and confirmed by the Apostolic See by a decree of the Congregation for Bishops (Prot. N. 296/84), signed by Bernardin Cardinal Gantin, prefect of the Congregation, and dated July 4, 1992.

It should be noted that the Ascension is celebrated on Sunday in many dioceses of the US (in accordance with a decision to allow this transfer), reducing the practical number to 5 in many places.

Eastern Churches sui iuris

In the Eastern Catholic Churches, besides Sunday, the following are Holy Days: Christmas, Epiphany (Jan. 6), Ascension, Dormition (Aug. 15) and Apostles Peter and Paul (Jun. 29). Like the Code of Canon Law, the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches provides that each Eastern Church may have particular law Holy Days and also, with the approval of the Holy See, suppress some on the universal list.

Feste di precetto

Rito latino
Il Codice di Diritto Canonico prevede la seguente norma generale per il rito latino della Chiesa universale:
Canon 1246
1. La Domenica è il giorno in cui il mistero pasquale si celebra alla luce della tradizione apostolica, ed è da osservare come il primo giorno festivo di precetto nella Chiesa universale. Anche da osservare sono il giorno della Natività di Nostro Signore Gesù Cristo, dell'Epifania, dell'Ascensione e del Santissimo Corpo e Sangue di Cristo, Maria Santissima Madre di Dio e sua Immacolata Concezione e dell'Assunzione, San Giuseppe, gli Apostoli Santi Pietro e Paul, e, infine, tutti i Santi.

2. Tuttavia, la Conferenza Episcopale può abolire alcune feste di precetto o trasferirli su un Domenica previa approvazione della Sede Apostolica.

A seconda della propria nazione si potrebbe avere più o meno di dieci elencato nel codice. Ad esempio, gli Stati Uniti, aggiunge il suo patrono (Immacolata Concezione), così come l'Irlanda (San Patrizio), Canada (San Giuseppe) e molti altri paesi, mentre cade diversi dalla lista. Quanto segue è la norma complementare per gli Stati Uniti, che prevede 6 giorni santi, oltre a tutte le domeniche:

Il 13 dicembre 1991, i membri della Conferenza Nazionale dei Vescovi Cattolici degli Stati Uniti d'America hanno fatto la seguente decreto generale concernente feste di precetto per cattolici di rito latino:

Oltre alla Domenica, i giorni da osservare come feste di precetto nelle diocesi di rito latino degli Stati Uniti d'America, in conformità al canone 1246, sono i seguenti:

1) 1 gennaio, solennità di Maria Santissima Madre di Dio
2) Giovedi, della sesta settimana di Pasqua, la solennità dell'Ascensione
3) 15 agosto, la solennità dell'Assunzione della Beata Vergine Maria
4) 1 novembre, solennità di Tutti i Santi
5) 8 dicembre la solennità dell'Immacolata Concezione
6) 25 dicembre, solennità della Natività di Nostro Signore Gesù Cristo

[numeri di elenco non sono in originale]

Ogni volta che 1 gennaio, solennità di Maria Santissima Madre di Dio, o il 15 agosto, la solennità dell'Assunzione, il 1 ° novembre, solennità di Tutti i Santi, cade di Sabato o su un Lunedi, il precetto di partecipare alla Messa è abrogata.

Questo decreto della Conferenza dei Vescovi è stato approvato e confermato dalla Sede Apostolica con decreto della Congregazione per i Vescovi (Prot. N. 296/84), firmato dal cardinale Bernardin Gantin, Prefetto della Congregazione, e datata 4 Luglio 1992 .

Va notato che l'ascensione è celebrata Domenica in molte diocesi degli Stati Uniti (in conformità con una decisione di consentire questo trasferimento), riducendo il numero pratico a 5 in molti luoghi.

Chiese orientali sui iuris

Nella Chiese orientali cattoliche, oltre che Domenica, i seguenti sono Giorni Santi: Natale, l'Epifania (6 gennaio), Ascensione, Dormizione (15 agosto) e Apostoli Pietro e Paolo (29 giugno). Come il Codice di Diritto Canonico, del Codice dei Canoni delle Chiese Orientali, prevede che ogni Chiesa orientale può avere diritto particolare Giorni Santi e anche, con l'approvazione della Santa Sede, sopprimere alcune sulla lista universale.

Stift Klosterneuburg; The abbey was founded in 1114 by Margrave Leopold III

A Novena in Honor of St. Augustine
(August 19th to August 27th)

Heavenly Father who orders all things for the good of Your children, through the intercession of St. Augustine grant to the canons regular who do battle beneath the banner of the cross and under the guidance of his rule of life, the strength to persevere until death in the pursuit of holy perfection in the priesthood. May the sacrifice of the altar and the sacrifice of praise they offer bring grace to the world and conversion to sinners.

Grant further, oh Father, to those who on the feast of Holy Augustine will be clothed in the holy canonical habit, the grace necessary to live exemplary lives of sacrifice, love and obedience. May they know daily the joys of a perfect observance and on that day of resurrection and reward, may they enjoy for all eternity the bliss of the heavenly liturgy. As they praised you with their lips and their lives on earth, so may they praise you perfectly in heaven. We ask these things through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Novena Prayer to St. Leopold
(Nov. 7-15)

O God, Who govern all things, You granted to the holy Margrave Leopold the gifts of Your Spirit for service to the Holy Church, for the just exercise of his office, and for fidelity to his family.

Through his intercession, grant us the grace to remain true to the Church and to our God-given obligations, and the wisdom to recognize Your Spirit in the world.

Grant moreover, O merciful Father, by St. Leopold's intercession, Your grace to those who pursue the holy canonical vocation in the hopes of founding a house dedicated to Your glory in America. Bless them with an abundance of strong and virtuous vocations and with many lay cooperators to assist them in Your holy will.

We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
