SPUC Pro-Life Vigil Bristol - Thank You

THANK YOU to everyone that attended the SPUC kerbside vigils against abortion on Saturday 28 Apr 12 to bear witness to the sanctity of life and for those who prayed at home!

Let us continue to keep in our prayers the women that carry the pain and sorrow of having an abortion and that Our Lady may comfort them; and for the conversion of heart for those who agree with abortion. Mater Dei, ora pro nobis!

St Francis of Assisi said 'remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received - only what you have given: a full heart, enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage.'

SPUC Pro-Life Vigil Bristol

There will be a silent witness in Bristol as part of SPUC’s Kerbside Vigils on Saturday 28 April 2012 at the Hippodrome between 11.00am – 1.00pm. This is to give silent witness to unborn babies killed in the 44 years since the implementation of the Abortion Act, as well as to the hurt caused to women by abortion.

It is important that we attend the silent witness and defend the unborn! We need to show that life is sacred. Please show your support by attending. There will be a counter-protest so we need as many pro-lifers to attend.

If you cannot attend then please pray especially the Holy Rosary and if you have time the Litany of the BVM at home or wherever!

The most effective weapon against abortion is prayer and particularly the ROSARY. It can save lives and convert people. Pope Leo XIII said ‘it is the remedy for all our evils, the root of all our blessing.’ It ONLY takes about 20 minutes to pray the Holy Rosary.

Regina Coeli Paschaltide

Queen of Heaven / Regina Coeli

This prayer, said standing, is used to replace the Angelus during Paschaltide at 6 am, noon and 6pm - partial indulgence may be gained.

All Queen of Heaven rejoice, alleluia: For He whom you merited to bear, alleluia, Has risen as He said, alleluia. Pray for us to God, alleluia.

Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia.

Because the Lord is truly risen, alleluia.

Let us pray : O God, who by the Resurrection of Thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, granted joy to the whole world: grant we beg Thee, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may lay hold of the joys of eternal life. Through the same Christ our Lord.

Latin Version: Regina Coeli

All Regina coeli, laetare, alleluia: Quia quem meruisti portare, alleluia. Resurrexit sicut dixit, alleluia. Ora pro nobis Deum, alleluia.

Gaude et laetare, Virgo Maria, Alleluia,

Quia surrexit Dominus vere, alleluia.

Oremus : Deus qui per resurrectionem Filii tui, Domini nostri Iesu Christi, mundum laetificare dignatus es: praesta, quaesumus, ut per eius Genetricem Virginem Mariam, perpetuae capiamus gaudia vitae. Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum.

Juventutem Bristol April 2012 Match Report

Juventutem Bristol are grateful to Fr Redman for celebrating the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and for Fr Goodman for hearing Confessions in the Traditional Rite.

Please keep these Priests in your prayers. St John Mary Vianney said:

'Without the priest, the passion and death of our Lord would be of no avail. It is the priest who continues the work of redemption on earth. ... What use would be a house filled with gold, were there no one to open its door? The priest holds the key to the treasures of heaven: it is he who opens the door: he is the steward of the good Lord; the administrator of His goods. ... Leave a parish for twenty years without a priest, and they will end by worshipping the beasts there. ... The priest is not a priest for himself, he is a priest for you.'

Thank you for those that came along to the Mass and to the Juventutem Social to meet other young Catholics.

Next Mass

Low Mass: Wednesday 02 May 2012 at 6.30pm at Holy Cross, Dean Lane, Bedminster, Bristol, BS3 1DB and then followed by a Juventutem Social.

Masses open to all

Socials are reserved to those aged 18 - 35
