We begin July with a long weekend in which we celebrate the Independence Day, July 4. We spend time with our family members and friends to cook-out, to enjoy our freedom and to recall the reasons for our independence
When we celebrate this day as a citizens, in this special Jubilee of Mercy, I would like to invite you to also celebrate as a Christian. We should celebrate our independence from SIN and DEATH. As Christians, we believe that Jesus frees us from our sins and gives us life through His Death on the Cross and His Resurrection.
1. We spend time with the Church through her celebrations of reflection, reconciliation and Eucharist.
2. We enjoy God's Mercy which brings us to the fullness of freedom.
3. We recall the reasons for our salvation: God's love for us.
We pray for the youth in this July and during summer as they prepare and attend the World Youth Day in Krakow, Poland with Pope Francis, Cardinals, Bishops, Priests, and Young people from all over the world. May they experience God's love and Mercy through the care of the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church.
The theme of the 129th Novena to St. Anne reflects God's Mercy in this Jubilee of Mercy: "Experience God's Mercy with St. Anne." Jesus loves us so much and always finds many ways to show us His love and His Mercy. As a grandmother of Jesus, St. Anne is always a best channel to come closer to Jesus, His love and Mercy. Come to celebrate the 129th Novena with us! Please click here for the poster and more information.
