Behold, O kind and gentle Jesus, I kneel before you and pray that you would impress upon my heart the virtues of faith, hope and charity, with true repentance for my sins and a firm purpose of amendment.

I meditate on your five precious wounds, having in mind the words which David spoke in prophecy: "They have pierced my hands and my feet.

I can count all my bones"

{Psalm 22}

The 17th Annual Buy Nothing Day Winter Coat exchange will be held on Friday November 29 at 14 sites around Rhode Island beginning at 9 AM.     Throughout November many of the November 29 distribution sites and numerous other places in our communities are collecting winter coats.  These coats, and coats donated at the various distribution sites on November 29 will be available for any Rhode Islanders who need a winter coat to pick up on November 29.  

 Buy Nothing Day Winter Coat Exchange organizer Greg Gerritt Gerritt commented  " While the poverty and inequality that drives the need to redistribute winter coats in the community is concentrated in the urban core, the availability of coats has a reverse distribution, that has become more apparent as we develop a larger and larger number of sites.  We are therefore encouraging Rhode Islanders looking for winter coats to visit sites other than the Providence distribution on the State House Lawn. "

The Buy Nothing Day Winter Coat Exchange is a partnership between people and organizations through out the state.  Many of the sites are organized by local churches or service organizations, and about half the sites are YMCA of Greater Providence facilities, a partnership that continues to strengthen over time.  

The Buy Nothing Day Winter Coat Exchange began in Rhode Island in 1997 as an effort to point out the dangers of consumerism for our communities and the planet while providing something useful for the community.  The hundreds of volunteers participating in the event each year continue in that spirit, to serve both our community and to emphasize the policy choices necessary to create a healthier community.  A complete list of the sites participating is available at http://prosperityforri.com/2013-bnd-sites-in-rhode-island/

Regina Coeli


O Queen of heaven, rejoice! Alleluia. For He whom you did merit to bear, Alleluia. Has risen, as He said, Alleluia. Pray for us to God, Alleluia.

Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary. Alleluia.

For the Lord has risen indeed. Alleluia.

Let us pray. O God, Who by the resurrection of Your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, has given joy to the whole world, grant, we beseech You, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may attain the same joys of eternal life. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.
_______________________



Act of Contrition

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you. I detest all my sins because of your just punishments . But most of all because they offend you, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of your grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasions of sin. Amen.
_______________________



Prayer Before The Crucifix

Behold, O kind and gentle Jesus, I kneel before you and pray that you would impress upon my heart the virtues of faith, hope and charity, with true repentance for my sins and a firm purpose of amendment. At the same time, with sorrow I meditate on your five precious wounds, having in mind the words which David spoke in prophecy: "They have pierced my hands and my feet. I can count all my bones" (Psalm 22).
_______________________



The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To 
you I come; before you I stand sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate! Despise not my petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Holy Spirit



The Spirit is coming! 
The Spirit is coming! 


 “It’s not new wine. 
We’re drunk on God’s presence” 
(cf. Acts 2:13).


God is so overwhelming that we can only drop our jaws and marvel when we receive the Spirit. 

 Christ Jesus “tuned down his Godness” (kenosis) so he could deal with us as equals 
(cf. Philippians 2:7). 

 Today, the fiftieth part of 
Easter - Pentecost - all three persons of the Holy Trinity burst forth with love, rolling like fiery lava over creation and filling the faithful with the divine Spirit of life.

O sing a new song to the lord, for he has worked wonders; 

in the sight of the nations he has shown his deliverance, alleluia


cf. Psalm 98 (97):1-2

THE ORDER OF MASS

At the Eucharist, the Church comes together to hear the Word of the
Lord,

To pray for the world's needs, to offer the sacrifice of the Cross in praise and thanks to God, to receive Christ Jesus in Communion, and then to be sent forth in the Spirit as disciples of the Gospel.


Through the experience of these sacred mysteries in the liturgy, the "summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed,"the people of God are renewed and given new strength to live out the Christian faith daily

(Sacrosanctum Concilium, no. 10)


In the Order of Mass, song numbers given in Today's Missal match their 
accompaniment numbers in

 The Accompaniment Books

Soul of Christ, sanctify me;
Body of Christ, save me;
Blood of Christ, inebriate me;
Water from the side of Christ, wash me;
Passion of Christ, strengthen me;
O good Jesus, hear me;
Within your wounds hide me;
Separated from you, 
let me never be;
From the evil one protect me;
At the hour of my death, call me;
And close to you bid me;
That with your saints,
I may be,
Praising you forever and ever.
