In the Chapel
Come for a short visit, or a long visit. There is a sign-up

Remember, O Most Gracious Virgin
Mary, that never was it known that
anyone who fled to Thy protection,
implored Thy help, or sought Thy
intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by 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 the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions, but in Thy mercy
hear and answer me. ~ Amen.

In today’s second reading, St. Paul talks
about the fact that married couples have
a lot to deal with; the anxieties of the
world. Sometimes those stresses can
really have a negative impact on our
marriages. Get away from all those worldly anxieties and
take time to just focus on God and each other by sharing in
a Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend.
The next Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekends are:
February 20-22 and April 24-26, in Phoenix and May 29-31
in Tucson. For more information visit www.mearizona.com
