The Catechism clearly defines prayer as a “vital and personal relationship with the living and true God” (CCC #2558). Prayer is Christian “insofar as it is communion with Christ” (CCC #2565) and a “covenant relationship between God and man in Christ.” (CCC #2564)

It is important to remember that we understand prayer through our celebration of the Sacraments and in the Liturgy of the Hours. The word liturgy comes from a Greek term meaning “public work or work done on behalf of the people.”

A work, then, done by an individual or a group was a liturgy on behalf of the larger community. All the worshipers are expected to participate actively in each liturgy, for this is holy “work,” not entertainment or a spectator event. Every liturgical celebration is an action of Christ the High Priest and of his Mystical Body, which is the Church. It therefore requires the participation of the People of God in the work of God.

Liturgy is centered on the Holy Trinity. At every liturgy the action of worship is directed to the Father, from whom all blessings come, through the Son in the unity of the Holy Spirit. We praise the Father who first called us to be his people by sending us his Son as our Redeemer and giving us the Holy Spirit so that we can continue to gather, to remember what God has done for us, and to share in the blessings of salvation.

Readings for the Optional Memorial of Saint Paul VI, Pope

Reading 1 1 Pt 1:18-25

Realize that you were ransomed from your futile conduct,
handed on by your ancestors,
not with perishable things like silver or gold
but with the precious Blood of Christ
as of a spotless unblemished Lamb.
He was known before the foundation of the world
but revealed in the final time for you,
who through him believe in God
who raised him from the dead and gave him glory,
so that your faith and hope are…

Eucharistic Adoration

Holy hours are the Roman Catholic devotional tradition of spending an hour in Eucharistic Adoration in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. A holy hour occurs after Mass on Thursday at Resurrection

Penance is an experience of the gift of God’s boundless mercy. In confession we have the opportunity to repent and recover the grace of friendship with God.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available on Thursdays following the 11:00 am Mass to 12:30 pm or by appointment. It is also available at Holy Name of Mary on Wednesdays from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm.
