NAME HOTEL IN LOURDES or ACCUEIL The Benedictus - (Lk 1:68-79)

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel! He has visited his people and redeemed them. He has raised up for us a mighty saviour in the house of David his servant, as he promised by the lips of holy men, those who were his prophets from of old.

A saviour who would free us from our foes, from the hands of all who hate us. So his love for our fathers is fulfilled and his holy covenant remembered.

He swore to Abraham our father to grant us, that free from fear, and saved from the hands of our foes, we might serve him in holiness and justice all the days of our life in his presence.

As for you, little child, you shall be called a prophet of God, the Most High. You shall go ahead of the Lord to prepare his ways before him, To make known to his people their salvation through forgiveness of all their sins, the loving-kindness of the heart of our God who visits us like the dawn from on high. He will give light to those in darkness, those who dwell in the shadow of death, and guide us into the way of peace. Glory be to the Father....

OLD BRIGHTON ROAD PEASE POTTAGE, WEST SUSSEX RH11 9AJ Dear Fellow Pilgrims,

In a world that is, in so many ways, caught up in the material things of life, there are many kinds of poverty. Some of them are before our eyes so often that we have become blind to them: the material poverty of brothers and sisters across the world, for instance. Some of our poverty is less easily seen: the poverty of time in the headlong rush of modern society; poverty of spirit; the particular kind of poverty that can come with ill health in all its forms.

Into the midst of these many poverties, Mary our Mother calls us to her Son, who became completely poor out of love for us; who “emptied himself to assume the condition of a slave and was humbler yet, even to accepting death on a cross.”

Jesus’ giving of Himself challenges us to respond to the poverty of our brothers and sisters, in whatever form that cross of poverty is carried.

But we must go further. We can go beyond this, too. Each of us must recognise our own poverty and the need that we have for the reconciling love of Christ and the support, care and love of our brothers and sisters. Such a recognition is a moment of grace and Lourdes is a place where such graces are often experienced.

Let us pray for one another as we journey together, that through a recognition of our poverty we may truly know, here and in the life to come, what it is to be a part of Christ’s Kingdom.

Bishop of Arundel and Brighton 4

WHAT IS A PILGRIM?

Pilgrim is a searcher. Restless, seeking truth or meaning, he or she goes on a journey. The beginning is modest, but significant. The journey of 1,000 miles begins with one step, say the Chinese. “I will go on-line and complete an application form for this year’s pilgrimage”. This first step leads to a tradition born in the Middle Ages when many people went on pilgrimage to holy places. It was tourism mediaeval-style. People in those days were wise. They said that there are two types of pilgrimage: the physical (like going from London to Canterbury to pray at the tomb of St Thomas a Becket) and the spiritual (engaging in an active inner search). The first was good; the second was better and nobler.

So who is a pilgrim? We all are, both individually and as a people. I am a pilgrim person. I am on a physical and spiritual journey. I need healing. During my week’s pilgrimage I will live this experience intensely through journeying in Lourdes. Meeting strangers, making friends, exchanging stories, caring for people, moving out from the prison which often holds me back. Engaging in prayer, meeting Jesus in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, finding some dark bits that I do not like, and then finding relief and release in God’s loving forgiveness. My journey to Lourdes will teach me many things, and not least the importance of prayer. One peaceful moment at the Grotto in the presence of Our Lady can be a lifechanging experience.

But there is more to life than me. “No man is an island entire of itself” is what the poet John Donne said. “Every man is a piece of the continent”. We are a pilgrim church, on the road but not there yet. We have each other, a guide and a destination: heaven and eternal life. We are always open to letting people follow at their pace and picking up stragglers at any time. We belong, as part of a Hotel group or the Accueil, and in belonging, we are important. In Lourdes we learn particularly how important the sick are to our community. Through them we discover our universal fragility and our need of healing.

LOURDES YOUTH TEAMS

The Lourdes Youth Teams exist to lead young people in the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton to an encounter with Jesus and to help them discover the joy of following him through building community, serving others, nurturing a relationship with Jesus in prayer and the Sacraments, exploring the journey of discipleship and connecting with the local Church in our Diocesan parishes. Build – We seek to lead young people to encounter the living God through creating a nurturing and loving community characterised by joy and friendship where each young person is welcomed and can come to know that they are loved and cherished by God.

Serve – We seek to lead young people to encounter Jesus in our pilgrimage and parish families by providing opportunities to serve others, especially those in most need, through various activities of prayer and service experienced in Lourdes and the Diocese. As a group of young pilgrims, we also seek to build friendships through being attentive to one another and serving each other throughout the year, and especially during our week in Lourdes.

Pray – Through the Lourdes experience we seek to lead young people to discover the joy of encountering Jesus by providing pathways into prayer and active participation in the Sacramental life of the Church in Lourdes, their parish and in the Diocese.

Explore – We seek to provide an open space where young pilgrims can explore their faith freely. Through ministry sessions which both evangelise and catechise we want to feed the faith of our young people and introduce them to the beauty and joy of the journey of discipleship.

Connect – We want to connect young people across the diocese and create a space where faith-based friendships can flourish. We desire to connect young people with the diocese and in particular their school and parish. We want the Lourdes youth experience to go beyond Lourdes and to overflow into a life of discipleship and greater involvement in the life of the Church. “When God touches the heart of a young man or woman they become capable of tremendous things”

Young people aged between 7 and 10, Years 3 – 5 at Primary School.

Young people aged between 11 and 14, Year 6 at Primary School and Years 7 – 9 at Secondary School. Young people aged between 15 and 16, Years 10 and 11 at Secondary School.

Young people aged 17 by 31 August following the pilgrimage, up to age 35.

During the week for the Family Group, there is a dedicated children’s Reconciliation Service and Children’s Liturgy for most of the Masses. The Family Group also has activities for two other groups of children: the Orange Shirts and the Green Shirts. These two groups have some separate activities organised for them during the Pilgrimage. The Redshirt Experience is to be viewed as a two-year programme, with the first year being an opportunity for deepening the experience of prayer and encountering the initial kerygma (1) of the Gospel. This experience of growing in relationship with the person of Christ can then pave the way for more specific formation in the second year of the Redshirt Experience.

The Encounter Experience in Lourdes, is offered particularly to the young people caring for Assisted Pilgrims, is a continuation of the Encounter Programme of the Diocese and also an introduction to that programme for those who have not yet experienced it.

(1) “we have rediscovered the fundamental role of the first announcement, or kerygma, which needs to be the centre of all evangelizing activity and all efforts at Church renewal” EG, n. 164.

BERNADETTE OF LOURDES by Catherine Simon

A Family in Need On 7th January 1844 François and Louise Soubirous (formerly Casterot) gave birth to their first child. They named her Bernadette. She was baptised two days later on her parents’ first wedding anniversary. Her baptismal name was Marie-Bernarde.

François and Louise had nine children, five of whom did not survive beyond the age of ten. Bernadette’s brother Jean-Marie alone has descendants alive today. The family lived in the little Pyrenean village of Lourdes and made their home at the Boly Mill with the rest of the Casterot family. Eventually they left the mill due to insufficient funds and found refuge in a disused prison cell called Le Cachot. The family of six lived in cramped and smelly conditions, sharing two beds between them. François accepted what work he could find whilst Bernadette battled against her poor health. Her strong desire to make her First Holy Communion led her to school with the Sisters of Nevers, who failed to be impressed by the fourteen year old and her limited understanding of theological concepts.

The ‘Beautiful Girl Dressed in White’ On Thursday 11th February 1858, despite her mother’s reluctance, Bernadette set out into the bitter cold to gather firewood with her sister, Toinette, and a friend, Jeanne Abadie (nicknamed Baloume). Together the girls arrived at the Grotto of Massabielle, where Toinette and Baloume hurriedly crossed the freezing waters of the mill stream to collect firewood. Determined not to be defeated by her asthma, Bernadette bent down to remove her footwear. As she did so, she heard a noise like a gust of wind. The noise repeated. As she looked up at the Grotto she saw the branches of a wild rosebush moving. Out of the darkness of the cave appeared a soft light, followed by a beautiful girl dressed in white who smiled and beckoned her. Bernadette rubbed her eyes but the smiling girl did not disappear. Deciding to reach into her apron for her rosary, Bernadette became afraid and her hand fell.

11


DAB-067 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 05/07/2019 10:52 Page 12

BERNADETTE OF LOURDES

The Vision made the sign of the cross. Bernadette copied her and all fear vanished. She knelt and said the rosary as the Lady silently fingered her rosary beads. When the Vision signed for her to approach Bernadette did not dare and the beautiful girl dressed in white disappeared.

The Second Apparition François and Louise soon became concerned by their eldest daughter’s tales of “Aquerò” – a respectful term in the local dialect meaning “that” – and forbade her from going to Massabielle. Three days passed before Bernadette was able to return. After High Mass on Sunday 14th February, during the second decade of the rosary, the Lady appeared to her. Bernadette sprinkled some holy water at the apparition and asked her to step forward if she was from God. The Lady smiled and moved slightly towards Bernadette. Meanwhile Baloume, who had pushed a small boulder down the cliff face, prompted Bernadette’s companions to flee from the scene in fear and in search of the local miller; Nicolau said that he had never seen anything more beautiful than Bernadette in a state of ecstasy.

A Fortnight of Apparitions Rumours spread quickly about the young girl who was having visions. During the third apparition, on Thursday 18th February 1858, the Lady asked Bernadette to come to the Grotto of Massabielle every day for fifteen days. The apparition told Bernadette: “I do not promise to make you happy in this world but in the other.” “Pray for sinners” On Sunday 21st February, the crowd had swollen to over a hundred. Bernadette revealed that during the apparition the Lady looked sad and said: “Pray for sinners.” Dr Dozous, a local doctor, examined Bernadette while she was in ecstasy. He found her pulse and breathing to be normal with no sign of excitement (despite his initial scepticism he later became convinced that Our Lady had appeared to Bernadette). “Penitence, penitence, penitence” Soon the police became involved and Police Commissioner Jacomet interrogated Bernadette. (He later admitted that he was convinced that

12

BERNADETTE OF LOURDES

the girl was genuine.) Bernadette always remained faithful to her account of what she had seen, including during later interrogations by the Imperial Prosecutor, Dutour. Meanwhile François had been persuaded by Jacomet to forbid Bernadette from returning to the Grotto. He could not keep his daughter away for long. Bernadette said to her parents, “I must disobey you or Aquerò.” Early in the morning of Tuesday 23rd February, the Lady appeared to Bernadette at the Grotto and remained with her for an hour, during which she gave Bernadette three secrets, none of which Bernadette ever revealed. At the following apparition three hundred people were present to hear Bernadette pass on the Lady’s message of “Penitence, penitence, penitence”.

“Go and drink at the spring and wash yourself in it” The apparition of Thursday 25th February caused wide astonishment. Kissing the ground as an act of penitence for sinners, Bernadette began to scrape the earth at the back of the cave, plastering her face with the muddy water and drinking it. She later revealed that the Lady had said to her: “Go and drink at the spring and wash yourself in it.” Not seeing any water, Bernadette had made her way towards the stream but the Lady called her back and indicated to the back of the cave. Later that day some returned and found a hole filled with water “as big as a soup tureen”: the more people drank from it the bigger the hole and the clearer the water became.

Cures It is estimated that over a thousand people were present for the eleventh apparition on Sunday 28th February. A visiting priest attended the twelfth apparition, unaware of the clerical ban imposed by Abbé Peyramale and profoundly moved by Bernadette’s ecstasy and the crowd’s silent prayer. It was on this day that the first of seven cures, proclaimed by Monseigneur Laurence to be the “work of God” in a mandate on 18th January 1862, occurred

Catherine Latapie-Chouat of Loubajac, about four miles from Lourdes, suffered from a paralysed right arm, a considerable handicap for someone whose livelihood depended on work such as spinning and knitting. She travelled to the Grotto with her two youngest children and plunged her arm into the pool of water discovered by Bernadette. Quite suddenly her arm 13

BERNADETTE OF LOURDES

became supple but almost immediately she started with labour pains: she was nine months pregnant. She rushed home and gave birth within minutes of her return. She was thirty nine years old.

The spring now gushes forth several thousand gallons of water a day. The water has been tested for healing properties by scientists but they found none. Lourdes has become known for its “miracles”, “works of God” and uncountable incidences of healing.

A Chapel and a Procession In the apparition of Tuesday 2nd March the Lady gave Bernadette two messages: “Go and tell the priests to build a chapel” and “People are to come here in procession.” Abbé Peyramale, to whom Bernadette imparted these messages, was a good man despite his gruff manner but was unhappy at the prospect of organised processions to the Grotto. Unaccustomed to instructions he commanded Bernadette to ask the Lady for her name. During the following apparition, however, the Lady simply smiled when Bernadette passed on his request and Bernadette returned to the parish priest with the reiterated message: “The Lady still wants the chapel.” Abbé Peyramale told Bernadette to ask the Lady for a sign. Perhaps she could make the rosebush at the Grotto flower – then he would build her chapel!

“Que soy era Immaculada Councepciou” Thursday 4th March marked the last apparition of the fortnight. The whole town was in a state of excitement. A large group had been praying through the night and officials made elaborate plans to control the crowd. Estimates have varied between eight and twenty thousand people present. Silence fell among the crowd as Bernadette arrived shortly after seven in the morning and began to recite her rosary, moving about the Grotto on her knees. The apparition lasted about an hour, without incident, signs or revelation of the Lady’s name.

It was three weeks before Bernadette returned to the grotto. On Thursday 25th March, on the feast of the Annunciation, Bernadette awoke at 4am with a compelling desire to go to the Grotto. When she arrived at the Grotto Bernadette found the Lady waiting for her and was overjoyed.

DAB-067 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 05/07/2019 10:52 Page 15

BERNADETTE OF LOURDES

After the rosary, Bernadette asked four times for the Lady’s name. At the fourth request, Aquerò stretched out her arms at her side, joined them at her breast and raised her eyes to the sky as she said: “Que soy era Immaculada Councepciou” (I am the Immaculate Conception). Bernadette rushed to the presbytery to tell the parish priest, who outwardly dismissed the girl’s statement. Inwardly he knew that the illiterate Bernadette could not have made this up. The Church had declared the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception four years previously. “So it is the Blessed Virgin,” he thought to himself.

Barricading the Grotto Wednesday 7th April marked the seventeenth apparition. While in ecstasy Bernadette was unaware that the flame of a candle that she was holding licked her cupped hands for several minutes. Upon inspection of her hands Doctor Dozous found not the slightest trace of burns. After the apparition the public authorities barricaded the Grotto. The Prefect at Tarbes, Baron Massy, tried to discredit the events along with Bernadette, whom he attempted to admit to a mental institution. Abbé Peyramale, who had become a great friend and support to Bernadette, defended her but the Grotto remained closed.

First Holy Communion Bernadette made her First Holy Communion on Thursday 3rd June, the feast of Corpus Christi, at the Convent of Sisters of Charity. On being asked whether her First Holy Communion or the Apparitions made her happier, she replied: “The two things go together but they cannot be compared. I was very happy with both.”

The Final Apparition At about seven o’clock in the evening on the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Bernadette had the final apparition from the meadow beyond the far bank of the Gave, having been prevented by the barricades and the crowds from entering the Grotto. She later remarked that it was as though she was in her beloved Grotto itself and that the Lady was more beautiful than she had ever seen her.

BERNADETTE OF LOURDES

The Commission of Enquiry On 28th July 1858 Monseigneur Laurence, the Bishop of Tarbes, set up a Commission to make a complete and thorough inquiry into the events at Massabielle, which lasted three years. The Bishop announced its findings on 18th January 1862: “It is our judgment that Mary Immaculate, Mother of God, did really appear to Bernadette Soubirous on 11th February 1858, and on subsequent days, eighteen times in all, in the Grotto of Massabielle, close to the town of Lourdes.”

Sister Marie-Bernarde Bernadette faced constant curiosity from outsiders and extremely poor health. She soon moved to the hospice run by the Sisters of Charity in Lourdes, where she remained for six years until she moved to the Convent of St Gildard and community of the Sisters of Charity in Nevers. She only referred to the apparitions when asked, saying: “I know nothing. I am good for nothing, useless.” Before leaving Lourdes on 4th July 1866 Bernadette was present at the inauguration of The Crypt, the “Chapel” requested by Our Lady. She bid farewell to her beloved Grotto, later saying: “The Grotto was my heaven; you will find me there at the foot of the rock.”

Within three months of arrival in Nevers she received the “Last Sacraments” on what was considered to be her death bed. At the same time she took her vows of simple profession, repeated publicly in October 1867. As Sister Marie-Bernarde she tried to live a life of obscurity and devotion to her tasks as a nun but in 1874 she became too ill for active duties, suffering from chronic asthma, constant chest pains, abscesses, a tumour on the knee and bone decay. Bernadette died on 16th April 1879, aged 35.

Thirty years later her body was exhumed in the cause of her beatification and was found to be in a state of perfect preservation: there was no decay. After re-burial her body was exhumed in 1913 and finally in 1925. Her body was placed in a glass casket and now rests in the chapel of the convent of St Gildard in Nevers. Pope Pius XI proclaimed Bernadette a Saint on 8th December 1933, the feast of the Immaculate Conception.

SOME SAYINGS OF BERNADETTE

I shall always have enough health, but never enough love for Our Blessed Lord.

I am entrusted with telling you what I have seen and heard; I am not entrusted with making you believe it. I shall not live an instant without loving.

I was a broom for the Virgin Mary; when she no longer needed me she put me in my right place, which was behind the door.

It is not necessary to give each other a keepsake when we love each other, but remember we must love and help others without counting the cost. I fear nothing because I have always told the truth.

Jesus came on earth to be my model. I want to follow him and walk generously in his footsteps. O Mary, my good Mother, help me follow your example to be generous in every sacrifice Our Lord may ask of me during my life.

I shall spend every moment loving. One who loves does not notice her trials; or perhaps more accurately, she is able to love them (her trials).

From this moment on, anything concerning me is no longer of any interest to me. I must belong entirely to God, and to God alone. Never to myself.

I must die to myself continually and accept trials without complaining. I work. I suffer and I love with no other witness than his heart.

PLACES OF WORSHIP WITHIN THE SANCTUARY THE GROTTO OF MASSABIELLE

This small cave is at the very heart of Lourdes. This is the spot where Our Lady appeared to Bernadette eighteen times in 18581, a place where heaven and earth touched. Ever since that time it has been a place of pilgrimage, prayer and contemplation.

In a niche above and to the right on the Grotto is a statue representing Our Lady of Lourdes. On the ground in front of the Grotto and slightly to the left is a plaque marking the spot where Bernadette knelt in prayer on the occasion of the first apparition. Benches often cover the plaque, so it is not always easy to find. Another plaque immediately in front of the Grotto shows where Pope John Paul II knelt in prayer on his visit to Lourdes. At the back of the Grotto, on the left, there is the spring discovered by Bernadette on 25th February 1858. This water is channelled to the Baths and the taps. Behind the altar, which is made of solid rock, at the back of the Grotto on the right, is a box for pilgrims’ petitions.

Pilgrims move silently though the Grotto, usually entering from the left as we face it and departing to the right.

Mass is celebrated in the Grotto each day (times and languages of the Masses are displayed in the Information Centre). The last Mass of the day is at 11.00pm and is usually in French. Many pilgrims like to visit the Grotto each day.

The 18th apparition was experienced by Bernadette on the Prairie because the access to the Grotto was closed off by a barrier. 18

PLACES OF WORSHIP WITHIN THE SANCTUARY

THE ADORATION CHAPEL

The Adoration Chapel is to the left of the Church of St Bernadette and is all too easy to miss! It is available for silent prayer throughout the day and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 6.00am to 11.00pm each day during the summer. The chapel is built on twelve pillars representing the twelve apostles, and is a haven of peace and prayer.

For those who have not been to Lourdes before, a map is available at the Information Centre in the Sanctuary, which you will be next to on Saturday afternoon when you are having your hotel photograph taken. This map will show you the location of all the Sanctuary chapels and areas of interest.

A GUIDE TO THE PROCESSIONS IN LOURDES

During our week in Lourdes we will participate as a pilgrimage in two processions – the Torchlight and the Blessed Sacrament. We will also process as a Diocese. In this article we explore the meaning of taking part in a procession.

A procession is a journey which symbolises in mini-form what our pilgrimage is about. It is the courage to move out of our comfort zone, join with other people and seek to encounter the Lord. Every procession starts with one type of order – through the goodwill of all participants we get ourselves ready and in line – and ends with a different experience – we celebrate being together as “Church, People of God, Body of Christ, Temple of the Holy Spirit.” (Vatican 2) A procession is not:

 A race – we will all get to the final destination. There is no prize for being the first. Indeed in the Blessed Sacrament Procession the most honoured position is at the end of the Procession where the Bishop carries the Host.  A march – we are each one of us unique individuals making together a pilgrim Church, not an army on the march. Our goal is unity not uniformity.  A parade – many people will look on as we process through Lourdes, but we are not showing ourselves off to others. We are witnesses of faith obeying the command which Our Lady gave to Bernadette telling people to “come in procession”.

A procession is:

 A humble and respectful walk accompanied by meditation, song and prayer.  A community in which many different groups - a people of all nations - come together to worship. We do not choose the place where we walk – we accept humbly the place that is given to us in order to form part of that community.  A reflection of what the Church is – the people of God walking towards the Light, overcoming tribulations on the way, renewing itself constantly under the action and the influence of the Holy Spirit.

THE TORCHLIGHT (MARIAN) PROCESSION

The Torchlight procession dates back to the earliest times when pilgrims would end their day’s pilgrimage by saying the Rosary together and singing hymns to Our Lady and takes place every evening, starting at 9.00pm. As a pilgrimage we take part in the procession on one evening during the week, but pilgrims may take part on other evenings if they wish. On the evening when we are officially processing as a diocese we will gather and form up behind the diocesan banner.

Pilgrims in wheelchairs or on stretchers gather in one area, walkers in another, the two groups coming together when the procession begins. This start is symbolic as we will journey from separation to unity.

All participants carry a lighted candle which is a reminder of our baptism, when we received the gift of faith. In Lourdes, the candle-lit procession bears witness to our faith, hope and love of God and a reminder that we are called to be “the light of Christ” to all we meet in the world.

During the procession the Rosary will be prayed in a variety of languages, reflecting the different nationalities present in Lourdes at the time. However the ‘Glory be’ is always said in Latin, because Our Lady joined in with Bernadette on the Glory Be of each decade that she recited. The following two hymns are also usually sung: “Immaculate Mary” and “Holy Virgin, by God’s decree” – these hymns are often printed on the paper candle holder.

Having processed right round the Esplanade, those using wheelchairs are placed at the foot of the Basilica steps. While this is happening walkers are directed into processing from side to side of rosary square, which prolongs the procession and creates a wonderful weaving of light, as night falls. Eventually all those processing are gathered in front of the Rosary Basilica and the evening concludes with a hymn to Our Lady, usually the “Salve Regina”, after which pilgrims will be invited to offer one another a sign of peace.

After the procession some people like to go to the Grotto or to the candle bank to continue their prayer.

THE BLESSED SACRAMENT PROCESSION AND BLESSING OF THE SICK

This procession is almost as old as the first pilgrimages to Lourdes. It was first linked to the movement of the Blessed Sacrament from the Crypt to the Grotto where adoration took place. But the sick were detached from this and so a new form was introduced which included the blessing of the sick.

This procession and blessing of the sick takes place every day at 5.00pm. As a pilgrimage we will take part on one particular day, though pilgrims can attend on other days if they so wish.

Pilgrims who are unable or do not wish to process will go direct to the underground Basilica of St Pius X where they can participate in prayer and adoration by watching the progress of the procession towards the Basilica on the large screens.

The Blessed Sacrament is carried, by a Bishop, in solemn procession, under a canopy and accompanied by priests and deacons, from the Crypt of the Rosary Basilica to the underground Basilica. Pilgrims gathered in Rosary Square lead the procession into the Basilica. Once everyone is gathered there is a time of silent adoration before the Blessed Sacrament – we don’t have to do anything, we just have to ‘be’, and feel the love of God. The Cure d’Ars, when asked what he did during his time of private prayer said “I look at Him and He looks at me”

In Lourdes the service of Benediction is amplified by a small procession. The main celebrant, carrying the monstrance, is followed by other bishops and a procession of doctors. As they move round the altar the procession stops at frequent intervals to bless the sick and disabled. As the priest makes the sign of the cross with the monstrance containing the Sacred Host, our faith tells us that it is Our Lord himself who blesses us, and we receive the benediction with reverence, head bowed.

MASS WITHANOINTING OFTHE SICK

When you speak to any pilgrim who has been to Lourdes on our Annual Diocesan Pilgrimage, most will tell you that one of the highlights is Mass with the Anointing of the Sick.

The origin of anointing and prayers for strength to accept sickness dates back to Jesus’ time. In the Gospels we find many references to Jesus caring for the sick and disabled and it was good that He gave special attention to them. You will recall the story of the paralytic, where Jesus said “Your sins are forgiven” “But to prove to you that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins” - He said to the paralytic - “Get up and pick up your bed and go off home” (Matthew 9:3, 6-8). “The Apostles set off to preach repentance and they anointed many sick people with oil.” (Mark 6:12-15). Also, on many occasions He would say to those calling for help “Do you believe?”

You will recall the leper who came to Jesus after sunset – “If it be your will, you have power to make me clean”. Jesus was moved to pity, held out His hand and touched him and said “I will, be clean.” (Mark 1:40-45). Note that the leper said “If it be your will”. Jesus knows what is best for us. He taught us in the ‘Our Father’ – “Thy will be done”. “Is there a man among you who would hand his son a stone when he asked for bread, or a snake for a fish? If you know to give your children what is good, how much more will your Father in Heaven give good things to those who love Him” (Matthew 7:9-11). In his agony in the garden of Gethsemane, He prayed “Abba (Father) everything is possible for you – take this cup away from me; but let it be as you, not I, would have it.” (Mark 14:36).

When at home, struggling to be faithful members of the Church, or here in Lourdes awaiting to receive the Sacrament, we must try and pray for the graces to accept God’s will in every day of our lives. God will answer our prayers for good health and relief from pain, in His own way and time and in the way best for each of us. Prayer for each other is the best gift for us all now, on our Pilgrimage and when we go back home. 25


DAB-067 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 05/07/2019 10:52 Page 26

MASS WITH ANOINTING OF THE SICK

Who may receive the Sacrament of Anointing? Certainly all those who have been baptised; have reached the use of reason; those who are seriously unwell or profoundly disabled; those who are very elderly, or extremely frail.

During the Anointing, all receiving the Sacrament can be assured of a remembrance in prayer by all pilgrims. It is an added blessing to receive the Sacrament during Mass celebrated by Bishop Richard and the priests. If you have any queries, speak to your Chaplain or Deacon; your leaders will keep you informed about the celebration.

The Rite of Anointing The Liturgy for Anointing is well prepared and celebrated. The Bishop and priests lay their hands, in silence, on the heads of those to be anointed; prayers and blessing of oil follows; then the Sign of the Cross with the oil on the foreheads “Through this holy anointing, may the Lord in His love and mercy help you with the grace of the Holy Spirit” and the hands “May the Lord who frees you from sin save you and raise you up”.

How should you be prepared? Have Faith in Jesus Christ. Faith is a special gift; treasure it through prayer when you go to Mass, visit the Grotto and take part in the daily celebrations. Pray to accept God’s will for you here in Lourdes and at home. It is good to be reconciled – to confess and receive absolution. Our young helpers are an inspiration to us; they look so happy to be helpers. Smile with them!! It is important to invite them to pray with you and for you. Bernadette said “My vocation is that of being sick”.

Rev. Canon Seamus Hester

THE BATHS (PISCINES)

“Go drink of the water and wash yourself there.”

This was the request the Blessed Virgin Mary made to Bernadette during the ninth apparition. Bernadette dug into the soil at the back of the Grotto and found a mountain spring. Water has flowed from this spring ever since and continues to flow today. This spring can be seen, covered by a glass panel, at the back of the Grotto. This water is channelled through underground pipes to: - the Baths - the reservoirs that supply the taps

It is ordinary water, yet using it in faith has led to miraculous cures. Of the seventy recorded miracles of Lourdes, forty-nine occurred during the use of Lourdes water; through drinking it, washing with it or bathing in it.

Immersing ourselves in the baths is a reminder of our Baptism. We do so in a spirit of humility, faith and prayer and associate ourselves with Bernadette by responding to Our Lady’s request.

While we wait outside the baths the Rosary is recited and prayers and invocations are said or sung in various languages. We are encouraged to join in the prayers.

A team of volunteer helpers work at the Baths and offer assistance to those who may need it and doctors and nurses are always on duty should a pilgrim require medical assistance. Our Pilgrimage has been allocated a time when A&B pilgrims can go through the baths. If this day and time is not convenient please speak with your Hotel Leaders.

THE WAY OF THE CROSS

The Stations of the Cross (or Way of the Cross) follows stages in the journey Jesus took on his way to Calvary in Jerusalem. To follow the Stations of the Cross is to reflect on the suffering and death of our Lord Jesus. We give thanks for his unconditional love for each one of us and consider how we are living the gospel message of love and forgiveness. There are several sets of Stations of the Cross in Lourdes:

The High Stations The entrance to the High Stations is opposite the entrance of the Upper Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. This rough and stony path winds its way for about a mile through a steep, wooded area. There are 115 gilded cast iron figures in the 15 stations. This path is unsuitable for wheelchair users and those unable to walk uphill. (One of our pilgrimage chaplains will lead able pilgrims and helpers along these stations each morning at 6.15am. It should conclude by 7.00am, so there is still time for breakfast before the remainder of the day’s activities)

The Marble Stations (Low Stations) Commissioned to create a new set of Stations that would be accessible for all pilgrims, especially the sick and less able, the sculptress Maria de Faykod has created seventeen Stations carved in marble. In these stations the 15th depicts the closed tomb and the waiting of Mary on Holy Saturday; the 16th is “Jesus is risen” and the 17th Station depicts the story of the disciples on the road to Emmaus. These Stations are situated just beyond the far bridge, alongside the river, on the prairie side. Underground Basilica of St Pius X There is a set of stations in the underground Basilica of St Pius X in the art form known as “Gemmail”; they are backlit through layers of coloured glass and are mounted on the walls of the basilica.

THE WAY OF THE CROSS

The following reflections are meant to be starting points, a means to trigger personal thoughts, comments and prayer at each station. However if using the script as written, it lends itself to two or three voices at each station – if praying as a group, there is an opportunity for all to participate, if they wish. At each Station all say together:

Lord, by your cross and resurrection you have set us free; you are the Saviour of the world. After each meditation, pause and then say together:

I love you Jesus, my Love, above all things. I am heartily sorry for having offended you. Never permit me to separate myself from you again. Grant that I may love you always and then do with me whatever you will.

WALK WITH ME

Meditations on the Way of the Cross edited by Fr Gerald Coates RIP In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We sign ourselves with the Cross of Christ. Father, in Baptism we were signed with the Cross of Christ. There is an urgency in our Christian lives that allows no pause for we are indeed a pilgrim people. We cannot stand still, we cannot remain the same. As now we meditate again on the Way of the Cross we continue on our journey, seeking yourself. Be with us Lord as we accept the Cross that each of us must carry.

THE WAY OF THE CROSS

FIRST STATION: JESUS IS CONDEMNED TO DEATH

The High Priest put a second question to him. ‘Are you the Christ, the son of the Blessed One?’ ‘I am’, said Jesus. Mark 14:60

The Prisoner, looking beyond his captors, said little in his own defence, responding only in honesty and truth. Because of this, they had already agreed his guilt.

Lord, we hear your voice declaring (for all who will listen) the mystery of Incarnation.

We seek your silent face and acknowledge our need for forgiveness.

SECOND STATION: JESUS CARRIES HIS CROSS

And when they had finished making fun of him, they took off the cloak and dressed him in his own clothes, and led him away to crucify him. Matthew 27:31

Condemned, He was taken by force of arms at dawn.

Having beaten him, they led him away for execution to a place beyond the city limits.

Lord, you accepted your Cross and began your final journey; - it had to be done.

May I accept my Cross, understanding that my journey cannot be made without it.

THIRD STATION: JESUS FALLS THE FIRST TIME

Meanwhile, Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard and a servant girl came up to him and said: ‘You were with Jesus the Galilean’. But he denied it.

Matthew 26:69, 70

Weakened, his footsteps faltered as he stumbled, hand outstretched, fearful of the ground. His friend watched the Galilean fall, and said – nothing.

Lord, our lack of faith breaks the rhythm of our footfall and the closing earth surrounds us.

There is darkness, loneliness and emptiness as we ask ‘Where are you?’

FOURTH STATION: JESUS MEETS HIS MOTHER

At Cana, in Galilee, Jesus had said, ‘Woman, why turn to me? My time has not come yet’. His Mother said to the servants ‘Do whatever he tells you.’ John 2:4,5

Prevented by the force of arms from coming close, a Mother seeks her Son. The disappeared one taken from her in the night. Soon she will be left with only her memories.

Lord, how can a Mother see her Son suffer and not suffer herself?

Yet, step by step, she stayed with you, from a Stable to Nazareth and on to Cana. Now in this press of Passover people, she is with you.

In a short while, she will be found standing by the Cross. Walk with me, Mary, on the path I must travel.

Stay with me.

FIFTH STATION: SIMON OF CYRENE HELPS JESUS TO CARRY HIS CROSS

As they were leading him away, they seized on a man, Simon, from Cyrene, who was coming in from the country and made him shoulder the Cross and carry it behind Jesus. Luke 23:26

Unable to walk on alone, a man taken from the crowd is told to help him. There is no choice.

Condemned men must die – at the appropriate place – for the sake of the people.

Lord, Simon was a face from the crowd, an extra shoulder and a pair of hands to share the load.

May we give to others a lift on the way, expecting nothing, offering everything.

SIXTH STATION: VERONICA WIPES THE FACE OF JESUS Large numbers of people followed him, and of women, too, who mourned and lamented for him.

Luke 23:27

Sweating with exhaustion from his ill treatment, he pauses for breath. A woman, ignoring personal risk, wipes his face with a cloth.

Her kindness done, she becomes again another person, one among many, - street side faces on a Friday morning.

Lord, who she was, where she came from, does not matter. She cared enough to risk all – and asked nothing in return.

SEVENTH STATION: JESUS FALLS A SECOND TIME

When he went out to the gateway, another servant girl saw him and said to the people there: ‘This man was with Jesus the Nazarene.’ And again with an oath he denied it. Matthew 26: 71, 72

Broken by pain, he falls again.

The Nazarene, eyesight blurred, momentarily sees his friend gazing at him. But neither can speak, He turns and is gone.

Lord, Peter was a fearful man and he acted out of fear. His denial was our denial, day after day, year after year. Sometimes we too claim that we do not know you, fearful of the cost. Maybe tomorrow Lord, maybe it will be easier then.

EIGHTH STATION: JESUS COMFORTS THE WOMEN OF JERUSALEM Jesus turned to the women and said: ‘Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me: weep rather for yourselves and your children.’.

Luke 23:28

Protesting at his treatment by the authorities, the Women of Peace gather by the road. A passing word, and they move him on. The women are left weeping, confused.

Lord, too often women have raised their voices at the folly of men. Too often they have been ignored.

May we, their children, listen to their words and their cries: and hearing them, hear you.

A little later, the bystanders came up and said to Peter, ‘You are one of them for sure! Why your accent gives you away.’ Then he started calling down curses on himself and swearing ‘I do not know the man.’ Matthew 26:73, 74

Beaten, but now within sight of the Hill, face down in the dust. Unrecognisable. Voiceless.

Lord, time and again we almost make it, and turning, dejected and disheartened, we realise our failure.

Even then, Lord, you are with us.

It’s time we were moving, It’s time to start again.

Psalm 22:17-18 John 19:24

Stripped, he is prepared for public shame. Bruised, he is silent.

With shoulders bared he accepts the inevitable. Besides, the crowd are waiting.

Lord, strip me of all I carry; strip me of everything that prevents me from carrying my Cross.

And when I am stripped be there to sustain me.

ELEVENTH STATION: JESUS IS NAILED TO THE CROSS

When they reached the place called the Skull, they crucified him there.

Luke 23:33

Nailed to the wooden frame that stretched wide his arms and secured his feet, there, on the Hill, he is raised above the people.

Lord, the hammering of nails has echoed across this earth as we repeatedly crucify you. Man against man, nation against nation. Yet from that Cross of Suffering with failing voice you called, ‘Father forgive them for they do not know what they do.’ Father, forgive us.

THE WAY OF THE CROSS

TWELFTH STATION: JESUS DIES ON THE CROSS

It was now about the sixth hour and with the sun eclipsed, a darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour. The veil of the temple was torn right down the middle and when Jesus had cried out in a loud voice, he said ‘Father into your hands I commend my spirit’. With these words he breathed his last. Luke 23:44-46

Naked on the Cross, he gazed at those whose fists were raised in anger, until he could see no more.

There, in the late afternoon, with head bowed, body and spirit exhausted, he ceased the struggle. It was done.

Lord, how are we to understand those hours late on a Friday before Passover?

How can we share the emptiness of those who walked with you, seeing you now defeated, hung between thieves?

So this was where all the hours and days of walking and talking finally ended.

Defeat on a Hill – and a satisfied crowd – Finished.

THIRTEENTH STATION: JESUS IS TAKEN DOWN FROM THE CROSS Take care of every bone The Lord will not let one be broken.

Psalm 34:20

Lifeless, his savaged body lay, once again, in the caring arms of his Mother. Journey over. Task complete. Failure in the sight of men.

Lord, the final act of your friends was to accept your lifeless body for burial.

Accept, Lord, our failures, our mistakes and our careless ways. Bury them, Lord, with the suffering of your Cross.

FOURTEENTH STATION: JESUS IS LAID IN THE TOMB

They took the body of Jesus and wrapped it with spices in linen cloths, following the custom of Jewish burial. John 19:40

Burial did not take long.

Laying him out nearby (before the last light and the coming Festival) they covered him with a cloth. ‘It is time we were gone.’ Turning into the dusk they left him.

Lord, it is over, the Way of the Cross has been walked. The story has been told and prophecy fulfilled.

‘What now?’ they must have said to one another as they walked into the chill night air.

FIFTEENTH STATION: THE CLOSED TOMB

Wait for the Lord, and let your heart take courage, wait for the Lord. Psalm 27:14

Your body, so cruelly treated, is now at rest and guarded, lest it be stolen.

Your friends and family grieve, lost without your words of comfort. Loss of a friend, of hope.

They must wait one more day, they need patience and faith.

Lord, many of us know and understand grief and mourning, and so we share with those who await your Son.

Through your Holy Spirit, enlighten our hearts to the truth of the resurrection, that we may know comfort and hope even in our sorrow.

SIXTEENTH STATION: HE IS RISEN

They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body. Luke 24:2-3 The women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground but the men said to them. “Why do you look for living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen.” Luke 24:5

Gone? No body left to care for, no rituals to follow. A callous trick, a final humiliation? Can it be true, risen? Is it possible? So much to take in, is there really hope? Risen?

Lord, we believe that you rose from the dead, butsometimes we find it hard to hope. Sometimes your love and salvation seem out of reach.

Be with us, and through your Holy Spirit, guide us to know your constant saving presence with us.

SEVENEENTH STATION: THE PILGRIMS OF EMMAUS

While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and went with them, but their eyes were kept from recognizing him. Luke 24:15-16

“Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?” Luke 24:32

Eyes that cannot see and hearts that burn within.

Recognizing your presence among us in the exploring of scripture and the breaking of bread.

Lord, you give us the means to come closer to you, to understand more and more the mystery of your dying and rising from the dead, the mystery of our salvation.

Help us each time we hear your word, each time we are present for the Eucharist, to come to know you more and more. Give us hearts that burn within us, inspiring us to build your kingdom here on earth.

THE SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION

Pope Paul VI published the “new rite” for the Sacrament of Penance in 1974, calling it the Sacrament of Reconciliation in order to bring a new understanding of this great gift from God. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a call for a change of heart; it is a symbol of life, dying to sin and rising to new life. During our pilgrimage we shall have the opportunity to attend a Reconciliation Service and celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation, where we humbly acknowledge that we are sinners and desire to change our ways to God’s way of love. We acknowledge our faults, our failings, and our sinfulness; say sorry, make amends and seek God’s forgiveness.

It is a Sacrament of healing and forgiveness; it brings joy and hope to our lives. Through it we become reconciled to God, with others and ourselves. The new rite encourages the penitent to treasure a moment that should be one of the most beautiful moments of his or her life. The heavens rejoice over the sinner who repents and is reconciled to God (Lk 15: 7). We too should rejoice!

If you are uncertain of what to do and what to say, don’t worry. Guidance may be given during the service but if not, simply approach the priest for private confession with an open heart and ask him to help you make your confession and celebrate the Sacrament.

There is also the Chapel of Reconciliation in the building known as Accueil Jean-Paul II, close to the statue of the crowned Virgin, where Confessions are heard daily from 10.00 – 11.15 am and from 2.30 – 6.00 pm. Any of the priests on our pilgrimage would be happy to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation with you by arrangement.

Reflection To prepare to celebrate the Sacrament we think about the ways in which we have failed to embrace God’s love for us, we consider the ways we have hurt others and diminished our own dignity through our lack of love. It is all too easy for our examination of conscience and our confession to become “shopping lists” without reflecting deeply on why we sin. We should try to recognise our weaknesses and pray that through the celebration of this joyful Sacrament we will be able to put things right.

RECONCILIATION

A short Act of Contrition O my God, because you are so good, I am very sorry that I have sinned against you, and with the help of your grace I will try not to sin again.

THE WORDS OF ABSOLUTION The priest extends his hands over the penitent’s head and uses the following or similar words in absolution:

God, the Father of mercies, through the death and resurrection of his Son has reconciled the world to himself and sent the Holy Spirit among us for the forgiveness of sins. Through the ministry of the Church may God give you pardon and peace, and I absolve you from your sins, in the name of the Father, + and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Prayer attributed to an Eastern Mystic I was a revolutionary when I was young and all my prayer to God was: “Lord, give me the energy to change the world.”

As I approached middle age and realised that half my life had gone without me changing even one person, I changed my prayer to: “Lord, help me change those who are close to me, just my family and friends, and I’ll be happy.”

Now I’m an old man and my one and only prayer is this: “Lord, give me the grace to change myself.”

If I’d prayed this from the very start, I should not have wasted my life.

LECTIO DIVINA

LECTIO DIVINA A short guide to praying with the Scriptures Lectio IS  Prayer

 Listening

 A moment of quiet

 A moment when God speaks to me  For every day  For life

Lectio is NOT  Study

 Reading a novel  Homework  Difficult  Rushed

Some tips

 Use a short passage of scripture – from one of the Gospels is ideal

 If on your own ‘start small’ – perhaps just 5 or 10 minutes

LECTIO DIVINA

The practice of Lectio Divina  Be still

 Choose a short text from the Scriptures  Read it through – perhaps aloud

 Read it through – in silence – two or three times  Reflect on the text in your mind and heart

 Be open to a particular word or phrase that stays with you  Read through the text again  Reflect on the text again

 Be open for a prayer, or thought, that may come to you  Carry this through the day

 End with a short prayer and the Sign of the Cross Lectio with a group

 If you are doing Lectio Divina in a group, one person can read the text for the first time

 People may wish to share the word or phrase that came to them

PRAYER 2019 THE THEME FOR THE YEAR

Each year there is a theme for all pilgrimages coming to Lourdes. The theme this year is:

Blessed are the poor for the Kingdom of God is theirs. Luke 6:20

Information about the theme of the year is available from the Lourdes bookshop located near the Information Centre in the Domain.

PRAYER FOLDER

Each Hotel and Accueil group has a Prayer Folder in which prayers, petitions, thoughts, reflections even drawings can be recorded at any time.

The folders will be taken to Mass every day and placed on the sanctuary for the duration of the Mass, after which they will be taken back to the hotels. At the end of Mass on the final day of our pilgrimage the contents of all the folders will be taken and placed in the Grotto.

DAILY PRAYER

The whole of our pilgrimage is a time of prayer – everything we do and say can be offered to God in prayer, but it is good to meet together and put time aside for structured group prayer.

Our comprehensive programme in Lourdes means not every day is the same therefore whenever possible the chaplain will arrange a time of prayer for your group. So do check for notices about time for prayer in your group and if in doubt ask your chaplain. If there is no group prayer on any particular day, you can use this format for your own personal time of prayer. Wherever and whenever your group finds time to pray together, you may choose to use a format provided here, which relates to the pattern of readings that we use at our daily Mass in Lourdes. You may like to add the following depending on your situation.

 add songs, at the beginning and the end, you will find many options in this book.  The silence noted can be as long as suits your group, 5 seconds to a minute or so.

 The reflection can be a prompt to conversation and a time for sharing together or in smaller groups. Or equally some quiet reflection time.

 The prayer can be led by the clergy of the group or lay people can also be encouraged to lead.

N.B. Wednesday’s extended evening prayer will need more preparation time prior to the prayer.

Blessed are the poor, for the Kingdom of God is theirs.

Reflection Our pilgrimage has begun, some have arrived here in Lourdes some are traveling still. We have all taken time out to be somewhere else, to do something different, perhaps to offer service, perhaps to search for meaning or comfort. What does being like a child mean to you? Do you welcome the kingdom of God as a child would? (Silence is kept)

Scripture

Leader: All: All:

Blessed are the poor, for the Kingdom of God is theirs.

Luke 6:20-22 Fixing his eyes on his disciples, Jesus said: ‘How happy are you who are poor: yours is the kingdom of God. Happy you who are hungry now: you shall be satisfied. Happy you who weep now: you shall laugh.’ The Gospel of the Lord

Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ

Blessed are the poor, for the Kingdom of God is theirs.

Reflection Jesus has a crowd with him, many desperate for healing but the writer of Luke’s Gospel tells us that these words are addressed particularly to his disciples. Scholars tell us this is not just the twelve, but a wider group of his followers. In this short extract, Jesus is not offering wealth later, but the Kingdom of God, enough food and happiness in sorrow. Perhaps the words of the US lawyer and social justice activist Bryan Stevenson can help us to widen our understanding of these words of Jesus, ‘The opposite of poverty is not wealth, but justice.’ What do you think the Kingdom of God is like?

We believe that Jesus died and rose again, and that it will be the same for those who have died in Jesus: God will bring them with him. The Gospel of the Lord

Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ

Blessed are the poor, for the Kingdom of God is theirs.

Reflection When we are grieving, whether the loss of a person, a job, or something else in life, we may seem to change, perhaps we feel weak, less confident, less sure of ourselves. We might ask ‘why me? why my family?’ Paul reminds us that keeping hope is so important, like a wise friend who holds us as we grieve and says ‘I know, I know, I promise it won’t always feel this awful’. Paul acknowledges our grief and reminds us that we need not be consumed by it: we can hope in Christ.

All: All:

Blessed are the poor, for the Kingdom of God is theirs.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 ‘My grace is enough for you: my power is at its best in weakness.’ So I shall be very happy to make my weakness my special boast so that the power of Christ may stay over me, and that is why I am quite content with my weaknesses, and with insults, hardships, persecutions and the agonies I go through for Christ’s sake. For it is when I am weak that I am strong. The Gospel of the Lord

Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ

Blessed are the poor, for the Kingdom of God is theirs.

Reflection Paul is telling us that our weakness is our strength, he challenges what we know from nature: the strong survive, the weak perish. It is radical, it is an apparent paradox. Jean Vanier RIP, philosopher and founder of L’Arche, takes Paul’s ‘contentment’ in the face of trials further.’ An Undefined Power A poor person has a mysterious power: in his weakness he is able to open hardened hearts and reveal the sources of living waters within 65

Reflection Our Lady and St Bernadette were probably around the same age when they experienced the intervention of God in their lives in a direct, visual and relational way, Our Lady with the Angel Gabriel and St Bernadette with Our Lady. They both expressed surprise at the choice of God to work through them, they did not feel worthy, and in their home they were nothing special, in fact we know that Bernadette was clearly amongst the very poor. Are there times when you feel unworthy, when the tasks ahead of you in your family, in your work, in making the world a better place and bringing about the kingdom of God, just seem beyond you? Yet we know that Mary and St Bernadette put everything in God’s hands. Can you do that too? (Silence is kept)

O Lord, make haste to help us.

O God, as we gather here in your presence, may our hearts be open to your word in scripture and in the depth of our being.

(Silence is kept)

Introduction: This week we have heard how, in many different ways, God takes our understanding and experience of life and turns it on its head. If you are poor, yours is the kingdom of God, if you are weak, you are actually strong; if you are a teenager, a girl even, with no power, wealth or position, God can, with your permission, work in you to bring signs of the kingdom to the world.

Leader:

PRAYERS

Reflection We hear for the second time this week from Jean Vanier, philosopher and founder of L’Arche, who sees clearly how people who appear the weakest in our communities offer us truth and wisdom. Joy I am sure that poor people can be joyful. At times of celebration they seem to overcome all their suffering and frustration in an explosion of joy. They shed the burden of daily life and they live in a moment of freedom in which their hearts simply bound with joy. It is so too with people in community who have learned to accept their wounds, limitations and poverty. They have discovered liberation. They do not have to hide away. They are free.

Jean Vanier, Community and Growth, p. 319

In small groups spend some time with these words from Jean Vanier.

Here are some questions that might help your group explore these ideas. • Have you experienced joy in suffering? • Do you find it hard to accept your wounds, limitations and poverty? (Perhaps spend some time in silence together thinking about your personal answer to this question.) • Have you felt moments of freedom in Lourdes? • What are you free from?

(Each group can choose one brief thought to share with the larger group. Then gathering together as one group take some time to hear the brief thoughts from each small group.)

70


DAB-067 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 05/07/2019 10:52 Page 71

PRAYERS

Having considered our own poverty and the freedom that comes with accepting it, we hear words of wisdom about our role to care for the poor, and in so doing care for Christ Himself.

‘If you can’t feed a hundred people then feed just one’. ‘We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.’ ‘You pray for the hungry. Then you feed them. This is how prayer works’

Mother Teresa Pope Francis

‘Poverty is not an accident. Like slavery and apartheid, it is man-made and can be removed by the actions of human beings’. Nelson Mandela

During this week have you changed the way you understand Jesus’ words ‘Blessed are the poor, for the Kingdom of God is theirs’? With two or three people near you share your reflections on what these words mean to you now. After you have shared these reflections take time to share any prayer intentions you may have. Allow yourselves some time in silence to pray for each other and your intentions. (Gathering again as a large group)

Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ

Blessed are the poor, for the Kingdom of God is theirs.

Reflection In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus tells us that he is the poor, we need to see Him in the poor. St Oscar Romero, then archbishop of San Salvador in El Salvador, explains to us that the Gospel is not separate from our lives, our actions, our experience. Christ is in our midst. Some want to keep a gospel so disembodied that it doesn’t get involved at all in the world it must save. Christ is now in history. Christ is in the womb of the people. Christ is now bringing about the new heavens and the new earth. (Silence is kept)

PROGRAMME IN LOURDES

Important •

• •

• • •

• •

Sometimes, it can happen that a service is moved to another place or times are altered. Please, therefore, check with your leader and your hotel notice board daily.

Your group chaplains and leaders will arrange visits to the Grotto and Baths. They may also make arrangements for booking visits to the places Bernadette knew.

The ‘Chemin de Calvaire’ – Way of the Cross – above the town, may be used only by Able Pilgrims (the ‘High Stations’). It is exhausting. In addition, the paving is very poor. There is a beautiful Way of the Cross on the Prairie – this can be used by all pilgrims.

The Blessing of the Sick, preceded by Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in Procession, takes place daily at 5.00 pm in the Sanctuary. The Marian Torchlight Procession takes place each night at 9.00 pm in the Sanctuary.

We have been asked to stand/sit/kneel as appropriate for each service, if able and not in a wheelchair. Anyone who is not in a wheelchair for Mass, and who needs to remain seated during a service, should speak with their group leader, so that they are assisted with sitting in a place where they can see the Sanctuary.

Please refrain from taking photographs during Mass or at the Baths. There are official photographers for pilgrimage events.

At the request of the Rector of the Sanctuary of Lourdes, a collection will be taken at one of our celebrations of Mass while in Lourdes. The money collected goes towards the upkeep of the Sanctuaries and the Accueil Notre Dame.

DONATIONS AND FUNDRAISING

The Lourdes Fund exists to enable us to support pilgrims who do not have the financial means to travel to Lourdes. We wish to thank those kind people who have supported our Charity through individual donations, fundraising events and donations given through appeals made in our parishes throughout the Diocese.

If you are a UK taxpayer, the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton, as a registered charity, can claim back tax you have already paid on your gift at no extra cost to you. Please request a “Gift Aid� form from our office. Thank you.

FUND RAISING

We are all fortunate enough to be able to make it to Lourdes this year. The Pilgrimage would occasionally like to be able to support who want to come to Lourdes but do not have the means to do so.

If you think you could help with a Lourdes social fundraising event, we need you. Alternatively, if you would be prepared to organise a small fundraising event in your own parish, or help with an appeal, please let us know. Phone - 01403 740110 | Email - office@ablourdes.org

LEGACIES TO ARUNDEL & BRIGHTON LOURDES PILGRIMAGE

Two important ways in which you can support the pilgrimage are the “Legacies” and “Gifts in Memory”. A legacy is a bequest to us in your Will. Legacies are a very flexible way of giving and can take many forms, including a fixed sum of money, a specific possession which could be auctioned to raise funds for us, or a percentage of what remains in your estate after you have made provision in your Will for your family and friends. Legacies can also take the form of a trust, which allows you to leave something to a loved one for their lifetime with the provision that it will pass to the Pilgrimage after they have died.

You could also consider making a donation specifically in memory of a loved one who has died, known as a Gift in Memory. These gifts do not need to be made in a Will and can be made at any time by contacting the Office. If you are considering leaving us a legacy in your Will, please request an information pack from the Office. We always recommend that you use a solicitor or professional adviser to prepare your Will. All donations and bequests should be made payable to: A&B Lourdes Pilgrimage and sent to:

Arundel & Brighton Lourdes Pilgrimage Office The Bothy Cowfold Road COOLHAM RH13 8QL Tel: 01403 740110 Email: office@ablourdes.org Web: www.ablourdes.org

TEA PARTY INFORMATION

All pilgrims, past, present and future, are welcome to come along to one of the Pilgrimage gatherings which are held around the Diocese throughout the year.

This is a chance to come along and meet old friends, make new ones and share memories over a cup of tea and cake. It is also a great opportunity to find out more about the diocesan Lourdes pilgrimage by speaking to those who have been before and there will be a chance to watch a video of this wonderful week and learn more about the programme first hand. If you are interested in being part of a team running an event in your parish please contact the Lourdes office on office@ablourdes.org and one of the team will be happy to discuss this with you

PRAYER NETWORK

“For where two or three gather in my name, there I am with them.” (Matthew 18:20)

We have set up a prayer network to allow us to continue to pray as a pilgrimage family throughout the year for one another.

This prayer group invites and encourages us to :

• share our prayer needs • offer prayers of praise, petition and thanksgiving to God • pray knowing that it is a safe place to share our concerns, joys and heartaches and in the knowledge that many will be praying on your behalf • pray as a community of people for others

Are you interested in joining our prayer network to offer your prayers and pray regularly for others ?

If so please e mail prayer-network@ablourdes.org and we will forward you confirmation of the prayer network ways of working and answer any questions that you have. We look forward to hearing from you. 89

FRIDAY 26 JULY

Reading Jeremiah 1:4-10 In the days of Josiah, the word of the Lord was addressed to me, saying, ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you came to birth I consecrated you; I have appointed you as prophet to the nations.’

I said, ‘Ah, Lord; look, I do not know how to speak: I am a child!’ But the Lord replied, ‘Do not say, “I am a child,” Go now to those to whom I send you and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to protect you – it is the Lord who speaks!’

Then the Lord put out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me: ‘There! I am putting my words into your mouth. Look, today I am setting you over nations and over kingdoms, to tear up and to knock down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.’

Psalm I thank you, Lord, for the wonder of my Being I thank you, Lord, for the wonder of my being. 1. Lord, you search me and you know me, you know my resting and my rising, you discern my purpose from afar. You mark when I walk or lie down, all my ways lie open to you. 2. For it was you who created my being, knit me together in my mother’s womb. I thank you for the wonder of my being, for the wonders of all your creation. 3. Already you knew my soul, my body held no secret from you when I was being fashioned in secret and moulded in the depths of the earth. Richard Proulx

Gospel Mark 10:13-16 People were bringing little children to Jesus, for him to touch them. The disciples turned them away, but when Jesus saw this he was indignant and said to them, ‘Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. I tell you solemnly, anyone who does not welcome the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.’ Then he put his arms round them, laid his hands on them and gave them a blessing. Homily

‘How happy are you who are poor: yours is the kingdom of God. Happy you who are hungry now: you shall be satisfied. Happy you who weep now; you shall laugh.

‘Happy are you when people hate you, drive you out, abuse you, denounce your name as criminal, on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice when that day comes and dance for joy, for then your reward will be great in heaven. This was the way their ancestors treated the prophets. ‘But alas for you who are rich; you are having your consolation now. Alas for you who have your fill now: you shall go hungry. Alas for you who laugh now: you shall mourn and weep.

‘Alas for you when the world speaks well of you! This was the way their ancestors treated the false prophets.’

The fruit of the vine we have turned into wine, offering this also for you to bless. May they now become the food that makes us one, nourishing our souls and bringing life. This wine will become the Blood of Christ. For us, our Saviour was sacrificed.

Now we offer you all the good things that we do, trying to love others as you love us. Bless and break us, too, so we become something new; take our lives and use us to do your work. Then we shall become the Body of Christ. for you, our Saviour, our sacrifice.

INTERNATIONAL MASS IN ST PIUS X BASILICA AT 9.30 a.m.

Reading Genesis 18:20-32 The Lord said, ‘How great an outcry there is against Sodom and Gomorrah! How grievous is their sin! I propose to go down and see whether or not they have done all that is alleged in the outcry against them that has come up to me. I am determined to know.’

The men left there and went to Sodom while Abraham remained standing before the Lord. Approaching him he said, ‘Are you really going to destroy the just man with the sinner? Perhaps there are fifty just men in the town. Will you really overwhelm them, will you not spare the place for the fifty just men in it? Do not think of doing such a thing: to kill the just man with the sinner, treating just and sinner alike! Do not think of it! Will the judge of the whole earth not administer justice?’ The Lord relied, ‘If at Sodom I find fifty just men in the town, I will spare the whole place because of them.’

Abraham replied, ‘I am bold indeed to speak like this to my Lord, I who am dust and ashes. But perhaps the fifty just men lack five: will you destroy the whole city for five?’ ‘No,’ he replied, ‘I will not destroy it if I find forty-five just men there.’ Again Abraham said to him, ‘Perhaps there will only be forty there.’ ‘I will not do it’ he replied ‘for the sake of the forty.’ Abraham said, ‘I trust my Lord will not be angry, but give me leave to speak: perhaps there will only be thirty there.’ ‘I will not do it’ he replied ‘if I find thirty there.’ He said, ‘I am bold indeed to speak like this, but perhaps there will only be twenty there.’ ‘I will not destroy it’ he replied ‘for the sake of the twenty.’ He said, ‘I trust my Lord will not be angry if I speak once more: perhaps there will only be ten.’ ‘I will not destroy it’ he replied ‘for the sake of the ten.’ 109

Gospel Luke 11:1-13 Once Jesus was in a certain place praying, and when he had finished one of his disciples said, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.’ He said to them, ‘Say this when you pray: “Father, may your name be held holy, your kingdom come; give us each day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive each one who is in debt to us. And do not put us to the test.”’

He also said to them, ‘Suppose one of you has a friend and goes to him in the middle of the night to say, “My friend, lend me three loaves because a friend of mine on his travels has just arrived at my house and I have nothing to offer him”; and the man answers from inside the house, “Do not bother me. The door is bolted now, and my children and I are in bed; I cannot get up to give it to you,” I tell you, if the man does not get up and give it him for friendship’s sake, persistence will be enough to make him get up and give his friend all he wants.

So, I say to you: Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For the one who asks always receives; the one who searches always finds; the one who knocks will always have the door opened to him. What father among you would hand his son a stone when he asked for bread? Or hand him a snake instead of a fish? Or hand him a scorpion if he asked for an egg? If you then, who are evil, know how to give your children what is good, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!’

Reading 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 I was given a thorn in the flesh, an angel of Satan to beat me and stop me from getting too proud! About this thing, I have pleaded with the Lord three times for it to leave me, but he has said, ‘My grace is enough for you: my power is at its best in weakness.’ So I shall be very happy to make my weakness my special boast so that the power of Christ may stay over me, and that is why I am quite content with my weaknesses, and with insults, hardships, persecutions and the agonies I go through for Christ’s sake. For it is when I am weak that I am strong. 116

Gospel Mark 4:35-41 With the coming of evening, Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Let us cross over to the other side.’ And leaving the crowd behind they took him, just as he was, in the boat: and there were other boats with him. Then it began to blow a gale and the waves were breaking into the boat so that it was almost swamped. But he was in the stern, his head on the cushion, asleep. They woke him and said to him, ‘Master, do you not care? We are going down!’ And he woke up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, ‘Quiet now! Be calm!’ And the wind dropped, and all was calm again. Then he said to them, ‘Why are you so frightened? How is it that you have no faith?’ They were filled with awe and said to one another, ‘Who can this be? Even the wind and sea obey him.’ 117

As once you spoke by plain and hill or taught by shore and sea, so be today our teacher still, O Christ of Galilee.

As wind and storm their master heard and his command fulfilled, may troubled hearts receive your word, the tempest-tossed be stilled. And as of old who prayed your healing hand was shown, so be your touch upon us laid, unseen but not unknown.

In broken bread, in wine outpoured, your new and living way proclaim to us, O risen Lord, O Christ of this our day.

O changeless Christ, till life is past your blessing still be given; then bring us home, to taste at last the timeless joys of heaven. Timothy Dudley-Smith 127

You shall crawl on your belly and eat dust every day of your life. I will make you enemies of each other: you and the woman, your offspring and her offspring.

Gospel Luke 1: 26 – 38 The angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the House of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. He went in and said to her, ‘Rejoice, so highly favoured! The Lord is with you.’ She was deeply disturbed by these words and asked herself what this greeting could mean, but the angel said to her, ‘Mary, do not be afraid; you have won God’s favour. Listen! You are to conceive and bear a son, and you must name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David; he will rule over the House of Jacob for ever and his reign will have no end.’ Mary said to the angel, ‘But how can this come about, since I am a virgin?’ ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you,’ the angel answered, ‘and the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow. And so the child will be holy and will be called Son of God. Know this too: your kinswoman Elizabeth has, in her old age, herself conceived a son, and she whom people called barren is now in her sixth month, for nothing is impossible to God.’ ‘I am the handmaid of the Lord,’ said Mary, ‘let what you have said be done to me.’ And the angel left her.

If you pass through raging waters in the sea, you shall not drown. If you walk amid the burning flames, you shall not be harmed. If you stand before the pow'r of hell and death is at your side, know that I am with you through it all.

Blessed are the poor, for the Kingdom shall be theirs. Blest are you that weep and mourn, for one day you shall laugh. And if wicked tongues insult and hate you all because of me, blessed, blessed are you!

Jesus Christ is waiting, waiting in the streets; no one is his neighbour, all alone he eats. Listen, Lord Jesus, I am lonely too. Make me, friend or stranger, fit to wait on you.

THURSDAY 1 AUGUST

Jesus Christ is Waiting

Jesus Christ is raging, raging in the streets, where injustice spirals and real hope retreats. Listen, Lord Jesus, I am angry too. In the Kingdom’s causes let me rage with you.

Jesus Christ is healing, healing in the streets; curing those who suffer, touching those he greets. Listen, Lord Jesus, I have pity too. Let my care be active, healing just like you. Jesus Christ is dancing, dancing in the streets, where each sign of hatred He, with love, defeats. Listen, Lord Jesus, I should triumph too. On suspicion’s graveyard let me dance with you.

Jesus Christ is calling, calling in the streets, ‘Who will join my journey? I will guide their feet.’ Listen, Lord Jesus, let my fears be few. Walk one step before me; I will follow you. The Iona Community

Reading 1 John 3:14-18 We have passed out of death and into life, and of this we can be sure because we love our brothers. If you refuse to love, you must remain dead; to hate your brother is to be a murderer, and murderers, as you know, do not have eternal life in them. This has taught us love – that he gave up his life for us; and we, too, ought to give up our lives for our brothers. If a man who was rich enough in this world’s goods saw that one of his brothers was in need, but closed his heart to him, how could the love of God be living in him? My children, our love is not to be just words or mere talk, but something real and active. Psalm May Your Love be upon us O Lord May your love be upon us, O Lord, as we place all our hope in you. (repeat).

For the word of the Lord is faithful and all of His works to be trusted. The Lord loves justice and right and fills the earth with His love.

The Lord looks on those who revere Him, on those who hope in His love, to rescue their souls from Death, to keep them alive in famine

Our soul is waiting for the Lord. The Lord is our help and our shield. In Him do our hearts find joy. We trust in His holy name. Mike Carver 139

Gospel Acclamation Alleluia (repeat after the Cantor) Open our hearts, O Lord, to accept the words of your Son. Alleluia (repeat after the Cantor)

St Mary’s

Anne Ward

Gospel Matthew 25:31-40 Jesus said to his disciples: ‘When the Son of Man comes in his glory, escorted by all the angels, then he will take his seat on his throne of glory. All the nations will be assembled before him and he will separate men one from another as the shepherd separates sheep from goats. He will place the sheep on his right hand and the goats on his left. Then the King will say to those on his right hand, “Come, you whom my Father has blessed, take for your heritage the kingdom prepared for you since the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me drink; I was a stranger and you made me welcome; naked and you clothed me, sick and you visited me, in prison and you came to see me.” Then the virtuous will say to him in reply, “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you; or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and make you welcome; naked and clothe you; sick or in prison and go to see you?” And the King will answer, “I tell you solemnly, in so far as you did this to the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me.” Homily

Prayer of the faithful Cantor: Lord, in your mercy, All: Hear our prayer.

Preparation of Gifts Gifts we bring 1. Gathered here as one, we give praise to you, our God, bringing to your altar our gifts to bless. By your goodness grown, from the seeds that we have sown, made by human hands, we bring you bread. This bread will become the Body of Christ. For us, our Saviour was sacrificed. 2.

3.

The fruit of the vine we have turned into wine, offering this also for you to bless. May they now become the food that makes us one, nourishing our souls and bringing life. This wine will become the Blood of Christ. For us, our saviour was sacrificed.

Now we offer you all the good things that we do, trying to love others as you love us. Bless and break us, too, so we become something new, take our lives and use us to do your work. Then we shall become the Body of Christ for you, our Saviour, our sacrifice.

Communion Neither Death nor Life Neither death, nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor trials in the present, nor any trials to come: Neither height, nor depth, nor all of creation can ever separate us from the love of God poured out in Christ Jesus, our Lord. 1.

2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Dwell in the One who raised Christ from the dead; though your body shall die, in Christ you shall rise through the Spirit who brings you to life.

All who are led by the Spirit shall live as children of God, and heirs with Christ Jesus, God’s adopted and chosen and loved. All of the suff’ring we now must endure is nothing to the glory so soon to be revealed when creation itself is set free.

All of creation awaits the new birth, the fullness of redemption,through labour pains of love, and so we wait in patience and hope.

All things work for good for the ones who love God, and if God is for us, then who can be against us? God’s justice cannot be condemned. Who can separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship or distress, persecution or famine, or nakedness or peril or sword?

All my hope on God is founded; he doth still my trust renew. Me through change and chance he guideth, only good and only true. God unknown, he alone calls my heart to be his own. Pride of man and earthly glory, sword and crown betray God’s trust; what with lavish care man buildeth, tower and temple, fall to dust. But God’s power, hour by hour, is my temple and my tower. God’s great goodness ay endureth, deep his wisdom, passing thought: splendour, light and life attend him, beauty springeth out of nought. Evermore, from his store new-born worlds rise and adore.

Still from man to God eternal sacrifice of praise be done, high above all praises praising for the gift of Christ his Son. Christ doth call one and all; ye who follow shall not fall.

Virgin of all virgins best, listen to my fond request: let me share thy grief divine. 8. Let me, to my latest breath, in my body bear the death of that dying Son of thine.

May the choirs of angels come to greet you. May they speed you to paradise. May the Lord enfold you in his mercy. May you find eternal life. 1.

4.

The Lord is my light and my help: it is he who protects me from harm. The Lord is the strength of my days: before whom should I tremble with fear? There is one thing I ask of the Lord; that he grant me my heartfelt desire. To dwell in the house of our God ev’ryday of my life in his presence. O Lord hear my voice when I cry: have mercy on me and give answer. Do not cast me away in your anger, for you are the God of my help.

I am sure I shall see the Lord’s goodness; I shall dwell in the land of the living. Hope in God, stand firm and take heart, place all you trust in the Lord.

5.

My soul is filled with joy as I sing to God my Saviour: he has looked upon his servant, he has visited his people

And holy is his name through all generations! Everlasting is his mercy to the people he has chosen, and holy is his name.

I am lowly as a child, but I know from this day forward that my name will be remembered, for all men will call me blessed.

I proclaim the pow’r of God! He does marvels for his servants; though he scatters the proud-hearted and destroys the might of princes.

To the hungry he gives food, sends the rich away empty. In his mercy he is mindful of the people he has chosen.

In his love he now fulfils what he promised to our fathers. I will praise the Lord, my saviour. Everlasting is his mercy.

Stephen Dean

Nada te turbe

Nada te turbe, nada te espante. Quien a Dios tiene nada le falta. Nada te turbe, nada te espante, solo Dios basta. Nothing can trouble, nothing can frighten. Those who seek God shall never go wanting. Nothing can trouble, nothing can frighten. God alone fills us. Jacques Berthier

O let all who thirst, let them come to the water. And let all who have nothing, let come to the Lord: without money, without price. Why should you pay the price, except for the Lord?

And let all who seek, let them come to the water. And let all who have nothing, let them come to the Lord: without money, without strife. Why should you spend your life, except for the Lord? And let all who toil, let them come to the water. And let all who are weary, let them come to the Lord: all who labour, without rest. How can your soul find rest, except for the Lord?

And let all the poor, let them come to the water. Bring the ones who are laden, bring them all to the Lord: bring the children, without might. Easy the load and light: come to the Lord!

O Lord, Hear my prayer O Lord, hear my prayer, O Lord, hear my prayer. When I call answer me. O Lord, hear my prayer, O Lord, hear my prayer. Come and listen to me. Jacques Berthier

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder 1.

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made, I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, Thy pow’r throughout the universe displayed!

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee; How great Thou art, how great Thou art! Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee; How great Thou art, how great Thou art! 2.

When through the woods and forest glades I wander and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees, when I look down from lofty mountain grandeur and hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze.

3.

And when I think that God, His Son not sparing, sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in that on the cross, my burden gladly bearing, he bled and died to take away my sin!

4.

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation and take me home, what joy shall fill my heart! Then I shall bow in humble adoration and there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art!

Praise to the Holiest in the height, and in the depth be praise; in all his words most wonderful, most sure in all his ways! O loving wisdom of our God! When all was sin and shame, a second Adam to the fight and to the rescue came.

O wisest love! that flesh and blood, which did in Adam fail, should strive afresh against the foe, should strive, and should prevail;

And that the highest gift of grace should flesh and blood refine: God's presence and his very self, and essence all-divine.

O generous love! that he who smote in man for man the foe, the double agony in man for man should undergo.

And in the garden secretly, and on the Cross on high, should teach his brethren, and inspire to suffer and to die.

Praise to the Holiest in the height, and in the depth be praise; in all his words most wonderful, most sure in all his ways!

John Henry Newman (1801–90)

Those who sow in tears and pain Will return rejoicing. The Lamb will leap, the lion lie down, On Your day, O Lord. He has borne our grief and pain, Burdened down with sorrow. Who'd believe what we have seen? Like a lamb He's slain.

By His word the world was made, Ev'ry grain and flower. The poor stand near to God, the Lord: Those who seek His face. O Lord God, return to us. Let Thy face renew us. Turn again, come see this vine Which your hand has sown.

The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want, he makes me down to lie in pastures green. He leadeth me the quiet waters by. My soul he doth restore again, and me to walk doth make within the paths of righteousness, e’en for his own name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale, yet will I fear none ill. For thou art with me, and thy rod and staff me comfort still. My table thou hast furnishèd in presence of my foes, my head thou dost with oil anoint, and my cup overflows. Goodness and mercy all my life shall surely follow me. And in God’s house for evermore my dwelling-place shall be.

This is my body, broken for you, bringing you wholeness, making you free. Take it and eat it, and when you do, do it in love for me.

This is my blood, poured out for you, bringing forgiveness, making you free. Take it and drink it, and when you do, do it in love for me. Back to my Father soon I shall go. Do not forget me; then you will see I am still with you, and you will know you’re very close to me.

Filled with my spirit, how you will grow! You are my branches; I am the tree. If you are faithful, others will know you are alive in me.

Love one another - I have loved you, and I have shown you how to be free; serve one another, and when you do, do it in love for me.

Water of life

Water of life, cleanse and refresh us; raise us to life in Christ Jesus 1. All you who thirst, come to the waters, and you will never be thirsty again. 2. 3. 4.

We cannot measure (to the tune of Ye banks and braes) 1. We cannot measure how you heal or answer every suffer’s prayer, yet we believe your grace responds where faith and doubt unite to care. Your hands, though bloodied on the cross, survive to hold and heal and warn, to carry all through death to life and cradle children yet unborn. 2.

3.

The pain that will not go away, the guilt that clings from things long past, the fear of what the future holds, are present as if meant to last. But present too is love which tends the hurt we never hoped to find, the private agonies inside, the memories that haunt the mind.

So some have come who need your help and some have come to make amends, as hands which which shaped and saved the world are present in the touch of friends. Lord, let your Spirit meet us here to mend the body, mind and soul, to disentangle peace from pain and make your broken people whole.

When I survey the wondrous cross 1.

When I survey the wondrous cross on which the Prince of Glory died, my richest gain I count but loss, and pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, save in the death of Christ, my God: all the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to his blood.

3.

5.

See from his head, his hands, his feet, sorrow and love flow mingled down; did e’er such love and sorrow meet, or thorns compose so rich a crown? His dying crimson like a robe, spreads o’er his body on the Tree; then I am dead to all the globe, and all the globe is dead to me.

Were the whole realm of nature mine, that were an offering far too small; love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all.

The Summons 1. Will you come and follow me if I but call your name? Will you go where you don’t know and never be the same? Will you let my love be shown, will you let my name be known, Will you let my life be grown in you and you in me? 2.

Will you leave yourself behind if I but call your name? Will you care for cruel and kind and never be the same? Will you risk the hostile stare should your life attract or scare? Will you let me answer prayer in you and you in me?

3.

Will you let the blinded see if I but call your name? Will you set the prisoners free and never be the same? Will you kiss the leper clean and do such as this unseen, And admit to what I mean in you and you in me?

4.

Will you love the “you” you hide if I but call your name? Will you quell the fear inside and never be the same? Will you use the faith you’ve found to reshape the world around Through my sight and touch and sound in you and you in me?

5.

Lord, your summons echoes true when I but call your name! Let me turn and follow you and never be the same In your company I’ll go where your love and footsteps show. Thus I’ll move and live and grow in you and you in me.

You who dwell (On eagle’s wings) 1.

You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord, who abide in his shadow for life, say to the Lord: ‘My refuge, my Rock in whom I trust!’

And he will raise you up on eagle’s wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of his hand. 2.

3.

4.

The snare of the fowler will never capture you, and famine will bring you no fear: under his wings your refuge, his faithfulness your shield.

You need not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day; though thousands fall about you, near you it shall not come. For to his angels he’s given a command to guard you in all of your ways; upon their hands they will bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.

And he will raise you up on eagle’s wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of his hand. And hold you, hold you in the palm of his hand. Michael Joncas

The Magnificat (Lk 1:46-55) My soul glorifies the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God, my Saviour. He looks on his servant in her lowliness; henceforth all ages will call me blessed. The Almighty works marvels for me. Holy is his name! His mercy is from age to age, on those who fear him.

He puts forth his arm in strength, and scatters the proud-hearted. He casts the mighty from their thrones, and raises the lowly. He fills the starving with good things, sends the rich away empty. He protects Israel, his servant, remembering his mercy, the mercy promised to our fathers, to Abraham and his sons for ever. Glory be to the Father...
