EAST FLATBUSH YOUTH DAY – March 9th
All the youth of our parish (middle and high school) are invited to the East Flatbush Youth Day on March 2, 2019 at Our Lady of Refuge (2020 Foster Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11210) from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Lunch will be served. Call the rectory to register.
Every Thursday (8pm – 9pm)
Are you tired because of the burden of your duties, because of frustration due to unsuccessful projects, because many misunderstand you? Are you heavy laden with guilt from past sins? Are you trying to find hope and meaning in life? Do not lose heart! Abandon yourself to Jesus in this “Sacrament of Love”: He will refresh you!
The more time you spend with Jesus, the more you will come away feeling renewed and healed. Miracles of conversion, peace, discovery of vocations, answers to prayers, physical healings, and many other wonderful things happen where and when the Lord Jesus is adored in the Blessed Sacrament. They are the “gifts” that point to the Almighty Giver and testify to His Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament.
Let us love being with the Lord! There we can speak with Him about everything, tête-à-tête, heart to heart. We can offer Him our petitions, our concerns, our troubles, our joys, our gratitude, our disappointments, our needs and our aspirations.
When asked, “What would save the world?”, Mother Teresa replied: “My answer is prayer. What we need is for every parish to come before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in holy hours of prayer.”
Come join St. Catherine of Genoa at Prayer before the Blessed Sacrament every Thursday night from 8pm to 9pm.
During HOLY HOUR, we “watch and wait”, we remain “silent” in His Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the Eucharist.
By worshiping the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to be! Like a magnet, the Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms us.
St. Paul has this to say: “Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit”. (2 Corinthians 3:15-18).
We grow spiritually with each moment we spend with Jesus! Through our Adoration, Jesus calls us to a personal relationship (to become His friends and disciples), to “remain in Him” (Divine Intimacy), to “remain in His love” (Keep His commandments). He promises that all those who remain tightly bonded to Him, will bear much fruit and “their joy will be complete”. For without Him, we can do nothing. (John 15:1-5)
