We hope that you will enjoy this original work of art.  It is visible in better quality by clicking on the link.  We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.  I wonder how many of our Polish brothers and sisters whom we will meet at La Salette in France are aware of this.  Since we do not have any of them on our emailing list, we will have to wait until we meet them to find out.

Yesterday's picture of Our Lady is a statue designed and cast by Brother Juan, MS who lives in Spain.  You can see the picture from yesterday by scrolling down.
                                                             
The prayer list is growing.  The faithful members of the St. Christopher parish are praying for us and asking us to support them with our prayers as well.  As usual, you can see the intentions that we have on the list by clicking on the words in red above.  


We also invite you to continue praying for Father Maurice Cardinal.  He is patiently awaiting his eye surgery scheduled for the 26, this coming Friday.  We ask also that you think of Brenda in your prayers.  She is a nurse, member of our parish community, who has been helping with the dressings on Father Maurice's wounds.


Our Novena.
7.     After the apparition, water was flowing in the previously dry ravine. [It flows to this day]
        John, chapter 4, verse 10   "He will give you living water."
        Faith, like water, sustains life and growth.  Am I living water for others?


                                  MEMORARE TO OUR LADY OF LA SALETTE
Remember, Our Lady of La Salette,
true Mother of Sorrows,
the tears you shed for us on Calvary. 
Remember also the care you have taken
to keep us faithful to Christ, your Son.
Having done so much for your children,
you will not now abandon us.
Comforted by this consoling thought,
we come to you pleading,
despite our infidelities and ingratitude. 
Virgin of Reconciliation,
do not reject our prayers, but intercede for us,
obtain for us the grace
to love Jesus above all else.
May we console you by a holy life
and so come to share the eternal life
Christ gained by his cross.  Amen.
