Our Lady of the Pillar

Becoming the apostle of what today is Spain, Saint James was having a hard time evangelizing the northern re- gion of Zaragoza. One night, as he prayed asking help for his plight, he suddenly beheld a great light in the midst of which he saw Our Lady surrounded by a multitude of angels. The interesting thing is that Mary was still living in Je- rusalem at the time. But as queen of the Church, she was given to see all that concerned her Son ’ s work, and being shown the prayer of her devotee, had obtained from Jesus to help him in a special way. The Blessed Mother consoled her son James, and assured him help for his endeavors. She asked him to build a shrine on the spot she appeared, and as a token of her help to the region, left a marble col- umn or pillar topped by a small statue of herself holding her Infant Son. In the early years of the revolution, William Joseph Chaminade, a diocesan priest, continued a clandestine ministry in Bordeaux. In 1797, Chaminade was driven into exile in Saragossa, Spain. There he prayed daily at the shrine of Our Lady of the Pillar, continuing a devotion to the Blessed Mother that was formed in the earliest days of his childhood. During this time in exile, Chaminade conceived of a plan that would shape the rest of his life, and the lives of thousands to follow.

For I know well the plans I have in mind for you—oracle of the LORD—plans for your welfare and not for woe, so as to give you a future of hope.

Psalm 95: Sing a Song to the Lord's Holy Name ( Liam Lawton)

SECOND READING : EPH 1: 17-23 ALEJANDRO CHAVARRIA ‘20 Brothers and sisters: May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give you a Spirit of wisdom and revelation resulting in knowledge of him. May the eyes of your hearts be enlightened, that you may know what is the hope that belongs to his call, what are the riches of glory in his inheritance among the holy ones, and what is the surpassing greatness of his power for us who believe, in accord with the exercise of his great might, which he worked in Christ, raising him from the dead and seating him at his right hand in the heav- ens, far above every principality, authority, power, and dominion, and every name that is named not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things beneath his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of the one who fills all things in every way.

GOSPEL

MATTHEW 22:34-40

A reading from the holy Gospel according to St. Matthew.

R . Glory to you, O Lord.

But when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered them- selves together. One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, “ Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law? ” And He said to him, “‘ You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. ’ This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘ You shall love your neighbor as your- self. ’ On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets. ”

The Gospel of the Lord.

R . Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

HOLY, HOLY

The assembly makes the Eucharist prayer its own by posture, gesture, music, silence, and attentive listening.

• We stand from the opening dialogue of the preface until all have received Communion.

• We join with the celebrant in gestures of prayer— uplifted hands and bows.

• We participate in the sung prayer with all the acclamations. Standing before the altar of God, with uplifted hands, joining as one voice— these actions remind us that we are one body in Christ, offering with Him the one Universal Sacrifice of Praise.

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.

Never permit me to be separated from You.
