Adoration Of The Blessed Sacrament & Benediction
“Besides sacramental liturgy and sacramentals, catechesis must take into account the forms of piety and popular devotions (link:- contained in f.n.1 below) among the faithful. The religious sense of the Christian people has always found expression in various forms of piety surrounding the Church’s sacramental life, such as the veneration of relics, visits to sanctuaries, pilgrimages, processions, the Stations of the Cross, religious dances, the rosary, medals(Cf. The Council of Nicea II: DS 601; 603; Council of Trent: DS 1822) etc.” – Catechism of the Catholic Church 1674.
Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
It is special privilege for us to come in the Real Presence of Jesus. Jesus is Present in all His glory and majesty, sovereignty and power; and yet in all his humility awaits us to drop in and spend some time with Him. For more information on the Perpetual Adoration, Exposition of the Holy Eucharist, Adoration, Holy Hour, you may visit http://www.therealpresence.org.
Our Church Building just lends itself by the very nature of its magnificent design for anyone who wishes to come and pray and spend some time in the peace and quiet realm of His divine presence. Our Church is kept open from 7am to 5:30pm everyday from Monday to Sunday.
First Friday Devotions
The All Souls Parish conducts a “Holy Hour’ Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament” following the 5:15pm mass on first Friday (of the month) and concludes it with the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. Mass schedule and Sacraments.
The terms ‘devotions’ and ‘popular devotions’, refer to various practices of popular piety. They are essentially personal, one-on-one, private activities, even when a group is performing them. That is to say, they are not liturgical or official public, worship of the church; whereas the Mass and the recitation of the Liturgy of the Hours are acts of public, worship of the whole Church.
The words ‘devotion’ and ‘devotions’ suggest careful, loving, tender attention and service given by one person to another (e.g. parents to their children). These pious prayers and practices are ‘devotional’ because they spring from and reinforce one’s personal love of God. Working on the imagination, the senses and the emotions, devotions help the worshiper understand that God is love and prompt him to a deeper love with Love who is God. Through the words and actions of devotions, worshippers experience and express a full range of feelings, from awe and reverence, dependence and confidence, gratitude and love, toward and for God.
While the term ‘devotions’ can be taken to mean certain traditional prayers and practices, it can also be used to refer to one’s entire personal prayer life, one’s spirituality, and, thus, to include scripture reading, meditation, and other practices. Please refer to the "Rite of the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction".
It must be emphasized here that devotions do not substitute for Liturgical Prayer, nor are they in any way competitive with Liturgy. Rather they complement and prepare for Liturgical Prayer by intensifying the worshipper’s personal sense of, and love for God, and awareness of the need of loving neighbor as one loves oneself.
Masses: at 8am and 5:15pm
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament following the 5:15pm Mass,
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 5:45pm to 6:45pm
TE DEUM You are God: we praise you; You are the Lord: we acclaim you;
You are the eternal Father: All creation worships you
To you all angels, all powers of heaven,
Cherubim and Seraphim, sings in endless praise:
Holy, holy, holy, Lord, God of power and might,
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
The glorious company of apostles praise you
The noble fellowship of prophets praise you
The white-robed army of martyrs praise you
Throughout the world the holy Church acclaims you:
Father, of majesty unbounded,
your true and only Son, worth of all worship,
and the Holy Spirit, advocate and guide.
You, Christ, are the king of glory, the eternal Son of the Father.
When you became man to set us free you did not spurn the Virgin’s womb.
You overcame the sting of death, and opened the kingdom of heaven to all believes.
You are seated at God’s right hand in glory
we believe that you will come, and be our judge.
Come then, Lord, and help your people,
bought with the price of your own blood,
and bring us with your saints to glory everlasting.
Anima Christi Soul of Christ, sanctify me;
Body of Christ, save me;
Blood of Christ, inebriate me;
Water from the side of Christ, wash me;
Passion of Christ, strengthen me;
O good Jesus, hear me;
Within your wounds, hide me;
Separated from you, let me never be;
From the evil one, protect me;
At the hour of my death, call me;
And close to you bid me;
That with thy saints, I may be, praising you
forever and ever, Amen.
Alma de Cristo Alma de Cristo, santifícame.
Cuerpo de Cristo, sálvame.
Sangre de Cristo, embriágame.
Agua del costado de Cristo, lávame Jesús,
Pasión de Cristo, confórtame,
Oh buen Jesús, Óyeme.
Dentro de tus llagas, escóndeme.
No permitas que me aparte de ti.
Del maligno enemigo, defiéndeme.
En la hora de mi muerte, llámame.
Y mándame ir a ti,
para que con tus santos te alabe,
por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.
Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O divine master,
Grant that I may not so much seek to be
Consoled as to console;
Loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Oración de San Francisco de Asis
Señor, hazme un instrumento de tu paz.
Donde haya odio, que siempre yo amor;
Donde haya injuria, perdón;
Donde haya duda, de;
Donde haya desesperación, esperanza;
Donde haya tinieblas, luz;
y donde haya tristeza, alegría.
Oh Divino Maestro,
Concédeme que yo busque
No tanto ser consolado sino consolar,
No tanto ser comprendido, sino comprender,
No tanto ser amado, sino amar;
Pues es dando que recibimos,
Es perdonando que somos perdonados,
Y es muriendo, que nacemos a la vida eterna.
