“don’t worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking Him with a thankful heart”

PHILIPPIANS 4:6


Our word of the week is

ROSARY

Rosary beads are a really important symbol within our Church, which have been around for many years.

They are a sign of our faith and an aid to prayer.

During this week you will hopefully get to understand them better.

WORD OF THE WEEK

This week our Word of the Week is Rosary! Some members of our Year 10 Chaplaincy Team here at Trinity have filmed our video this week. When you’ve watched the video, we want you to pray a Hail Mary in recognition of the Rosary.

 

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Tuesday of week 27 in Ordinary Time

The Hail Mary is the prayer most said when praying the Rosary. In fact, if you pray all five decades of the Rosary in one go, you end up saying the prayer 53 times! The problem that comes is that sometimes we say a prayer so much that we become almost desensitized to it’s message and meaning. We just say the words and we don’t actually focus on what we are saying.

The staff and students at Trinity have filmed themselves saying the Hail Mary in the video below. Check out the video below and take some time to reflect on this prayer.

Comment below what line of the Hail Mary prayer means the most to your form.

Word

LECTIO DIVINA

Lectio Divina literally translates as “divine reading”. It is a way of developing a closer relationship with God by reflecting prayerfully on His words.

LECTIO – Read
Read the Scripture for the first time.

Are there any words or phrases that impact you?

MEDITATIO – Reflect
Read the Scripture for the second time.

What is the message that God trying to say to us?

ORATIO – Respond
Read the Scripture for the third time.

How am I going to respond to God’s message?

CONTEMPLATIO – Rest
Read the Scripture for the fourth time.

Spend a moment contemplating and allow God to work in you.

 

A reading from the Holy Gospel according John(2:5)
Glory to You, O Lord.

“Jesus’ mother then told the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.””

The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ.

Response

REFLECTION ACTIVITY

Read it. Think about it. Discuss it.

 

The rosary is a meditation on the life of Jesus with an emphasis on His impact in the life of Mary, whose focus was Christ. Through reflection and repetitive prayer, it can relate to our own life as it is a form of praying to God and a way in which we can ask God to intercede for the moments in our own lives. It is a way of praying to Christ through Mary.

 

How does Jesus impact your life?
How does Mary impact your life?
How could we be closer to them both in our daily lives?

PRAYER

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Saint John Henry Newman, Priest – Feast

 

Today is the CAFOD Harvest Fast Day, so we’re deviating from the usual format for one week only to take a look at the fast day and what it’s about. This year they are focusing on the importance of water, and how some people don’t have the access to clean water that they so desperately need. Watch the video below to see an overview of the campaign.

 

STAY ALERT. STAY SAFE. BE KIND.

Have a great weekend everybody! 🙂
