ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP:

for the June 12/13 Bulletin

Where is "away"? We throw so much away, but where exactly is "away?" When you think about it, there is no "away." When we throw away the styrofoam container, the non-recyclable plastic, the aluminum pan, it all goes somewhere… trash can, landfill. It may be out of sight, but it will remain for generations to come. Suggestion: For those coming summer picnics and family gatherings see how much trash you can reduce by using reusable plates, cups, eating utensils or paper products that biodegrade.

ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP: 

for the June 19/20 Bulletin

Once we start to think about the kind of world we are leaving to future generations, we look at things differently. We realize the world is a gift which we have freely received and must share with others. “We can’t view the world in a purely utilitarian way – geared only to our individual benefit. Intergenerational solidarity is not optional, but rather a basic question of justice. The world we have received also belongs to those who will follow us.” Laudato Si

Mary Immaculate, our Mother and our Patroness,
we ask you to intercede for us with your Son,
as you did at the wedding in Cana.

Pray for us, loving Mother,
and gain for our diocese, our nation and our world,
for our families and loved ones,
the protection of your Maternal mantle from this dreaded virus.

In this time of trial and testing,
teach all of us to love one another and to be patient and kind.
Help us to bring the peace and healing Presence of Jesus to our land and to our hearts.

We come to you with confidence,
knowing that you are our compassionate mother,
health of the sick and cause of our joy.
Keep us in the embrace of your arms,
Help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus our Lord.

AMEN.

SEEKING HOUSE DIRECTOR AND COMMUNITY: Our Lady of the Adirondacks House of Prayer

Have you ever wished you could live in community with others who love God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? Are you someone who loves Mary, are excited by the lives of the saints, who knows that building the kingdom means now but are not quite sure how you are called? Are you someone who is gentle and trustworthy, not given to addictions or vice, hard-working and still active… someone who trusts God in all things, is wise in the things that are important, and takes great joy in the Roman Catholic faith? Perhaps you or someone you know would be a good resident at Our Lady of the Adirondacks House of Prayer, located in Ellenburg Center, NY. Or perhaps you are already part of a small community which is looking for a home and a mission. Come and visit us and see if the contemplative-active life is for you. A word of caution... the House of Prayer is very rural and isolated especially in the winter. As of the present moment, there is no community living there, but the Board of Directors is actively looking for 3-5 people, including a House Director, to live on its premises and help keep this Marian treasure vibrant within the North Country for all. Please call 518-534-9976 (Sarah) or 518-518-578-6949 (Jeanette) for more information.
