A message & Newsletter from Fr Deeley25.3.20
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Today is the Solemnity of the Annunciation, when the Archangel asked our Blessed Lady to give flesh to God in her womb.
This is a major feast of the Church and a day when we should relax our Lent. As happens with babies, it also means it’s exactly 9 months til Christmas!
The Archbishop has asked us all to pray the memorare once a day during the present situation. I have posted it below.
I will be offering Mass at noon and you will all be remembered at the altar.
Prayerful good wishes,
O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins my Mother;
to thee do I come,
before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful;
O Mother of thy Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in thy clemency hear and answer me.
