Marriage, Tweets & Love!
ST. JOSEPH PRAY FOR THOSE I LOVE!
Joseph Most Chaste, February Theme
Chaste love requires that one wills the good to another without taking the other to oneself as one's own. To Joseph was entrusted the Divine Child and His fairest Mother. Chaste in body but also in heart, Joseph loved freely which created
the interior tranquility of order in the Holy Family.
Prayer for Married Couples
Almighty and eternal God, You blessed the union of married couples so that they might reflect the union of Christ with his Church: look with kindness on them. Renew their marriage covenant, increase your love in them, and strengthen their bond of peace so that, with their children, they may always rejoice in the gift of your blessing. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
There will be a special blessing for married couples at all Masses Feb. 13 & 14.
You are invited to take a pre-cut heart home from the parish (on the table in the parish hall) or make your own! Write the name of your loved one(s) on the heart and decorate if you wish. Return by the weekend of February 14 and we will display your Hearts of Love!! This is a project for all ages!! We hope you will reflect on those you love and ask St. Joseph to watch over them as he did the Holy Family.
