On July 16, Redemptorists and friends will gather to celebrate significant jubilee anniversaries of profession and ordination of several confreres. A special Mass will be celebrated in the main chapel at Stella Maris in Timonium, MD, also home to our St. John Neumann Residence for Redemptorists in need of skilled nursing care.

Please join us in congratulating these men who have given their lives to proclaim God’s plentiful redemption offered to us in Jesus, Our Redeemer. If you would like to send a personal note of congratulations and prayers, please write to jubilees@redemptorists.net. We will forward your good wishes to the individual priest or brother.

Monday

Mother of Perpetual Help, you have been blessed and favored by God. You became not only the Mother of the Redeemer but the Mother of the redeemed as well. I come to you today as your loving child. Watch over me and take care of me. As you held the child Jesus in your loving arms so take me in your arms. Be a mother ready at every moment to help me. For God, who is mighty, has done great things for you, and God’s mercy is from age to age on those who love him. Intercede for me, dear Mother, in obtaining pardon fro my sins, love for Jesus, final perseverance, and the grace always to call upon you, Mother of Perpetual Help.

Happy Feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help! Know that you and your intentions — and all those prayers shared with us during our online novena — will be remembered today in a special way.

“Listen!” your eyes seem to say to us, Mother Mary. You did not know how things would turn out 33 years later, let alone the day after the Annunciation. And yet you said “Yes” after hearing God’s message: “Do not be afraid,” and “The Lord is with you.” When I am at my best, I live this. With your aid, I will listen and believe that you will never leave me to face my struggles alone. Hail Mary …  Glory be…

¡Madre del Perpetuo Socorro — ese color dorado que te rodea y te envuelve en el icono donde vives! El dorado simboliza el cielo donde tú vives ahora como Reina del Cielo y de la Tierra.
 
Sé que un día moriré, como cualquier otro. Nadie puede vivir para siempre en este mundo. Ayúdame a recordar que hay un cielo que me espera.
 
Dios te salve Maria …

Ecouter, “les yeux" semblent dire It nous, Mère Marie. Vous ne savez pas comment les choses allaient tourner 33 ans plus tard, et encore moins Ie lendemain de l’Annonciation. Et pourtant, vous avez dit "oui" âpres avoir entendu Ie message de Dieu: "N’ayez pas peur," et "Le Seigneur est avec toi." Quand je suis It mon meilleur, je vis cela. Avec votre aide, je vais écouter été crois que vous n’aurez jamais It me laisser faire face It mes luttes seul.
 
Je vous salue Marie…

“Makinig” ang iyong mga mata’y tila sinasabi sa amin, Inang Maria. Hindi mo alam kung papaano ang mangyayari pagkatapos ng tatlongput tatlong taon, pabayaan mag isa sa araw pagkatapos ng pagpapahayag. “Huwag matakot”, at “Ang Panginoon ay sumasaiyo.” Kapag ako ay nasa pinakamabuti, ipinamumuhay ko ito. Sa iyong tulong, ako ay makikinig at maniniwala na hindi mo ako iiwan na harapin ang aking pakikibaka ng mag isa.
Aba Ginoong Maria…. Luwalhati.

Acceptance has two sides: my crosses and my crowns. Mother Mary, help me to know my potential and accept my powerlessness. You who magnify the Lord and are blessed among all women, give me the strength to change what I can and accept what I cannot. Be my Simon and help me carry my crosses so that I may always trust that you are with me, Mother of Perpetual Help.  Hail Mary …  Glory be …

¡Oh Madre del Perpetuo Socorro — esos Arcángeles Miguel y Gabriel! Ellos cargan la cruz que un día tu Hijo tendrá que enfrentar. Nosotros sabemos que los Ángeles son buenos mensajeros. Por medio de la cruz de Jesús tenemos esperanza y vida. Ayúdame a comprender mejor que hay una bendición en cada sufrimiento.
 
Dios te salve Maria …

L ‘Acceptation a deux cotes: mes croix et mes couronnes. Mère Marie, aidez-moi de savoir mon potentiel et d’accepter mon impuissance. Vous qui magnifie Ie Seigneur et êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes, donnez-moi la force de changer ce que je peux et accepter ce que je ne peux pas. Sois mon Simon et m’aider It porter mes croix afin que je puisse toujours faire confiance que vous êtes avec moi, Mère du Perpétuel Secours.
 
Je vous salue Marie…

Ang pagtanggap ay may dalwang panig : ang aking mga krus at ang aking mga korona. Inang Maria, tulungan mo akong malaman ang aking pontensyal at tanggapin ng aking kawalang kapangyarihan. Ikaw na dinadakila ang Panginoon at pinagpala sa lahat ng mga kababaihan , bigyan mo ako ng lakas na baguhin kung ano ang maaari ko, at tanggapin  kung ano ang hindi ko. Maging ikaw nawa ang aking Simon, at tulungan mo akong dalhin ang aking mga krus upang ang aking tiwala na ikaw ang laging kasama ko, Ina ng Laging Saklolo.
Aba Ginoong Maria……Luwalhati ……
