Mass of Healing

On Sunday, October 13th, the 6pm Mass, led by Fr. Brown, will have a particular focus on healing.

Healing, whether from physical ailments, emotional distress, grief due to loss, or from the pain of broken relationships doesn't have to be something we seek alone.

As a family of faith, we gather strength knowing that when we come together in prayer, we are joined to our parents, friends, siblings, and grandparents who cannot be physically be with us here on Loyola's campus.

This Mass is an opportunity to ask for our own healing, but also to lift up those we love that are struggling. At the end of the celebration, there will be a special blessing and Campus Ministry staff willing to pray with you.

All are welcome!

Memorare

The Memorare is a beautiful prayer to the Blessed Mother, asking for her assistance and grace, especially in times of trouble and unrest.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine 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.

Psalms and Compassions
By Timothy Brown, S.J.

Immediately following his return from a ten-day student service project in Mexico in January 1998, Fr. Brown was diagnosed with colon cancer. He turned to the Book of Psalms as a source of strength throughout his illness and recovery. This book is the fruit of that experience. It is dedicated to all who are experiencing pain and suffering of any kind and to all who care for them.

Psalms of the Heart
By Timothy Brown, S.J.

This book grew out of the overwhelming response requeting a companion volume to Father Brown's book, Psalms and Consolations: A Jesuit's Journey Through Grief. In this volume, Father Brown continues to apply the Hebrew Psalms in his quest for full recovery. He sees this book as a reflection on healing - the opening up of all the blocked spiritual arteries of the past years. The Pslams have always been a spiritual way for him to allow the Lord to unblock that which impedes the flow of Christ's grace within him.
