Day for Life, 26th July 2015
Day for Life – the day in the Church’s year dedicated to celebrating the dignity of life and praying for the protection of human life.
This year we look at how to cherish life while we can and accept death when it comes.
There will be a mandatory second collection in parishes to support Day for Life
Proceeds of the collection will go to The Anscombe Bioethics Centre and other pro-life related activities supported by the Catholic Church in England and Wales.
Prayer for a good death:
O blessed Joseph
who breathed your last in the arms of Jesus
and Mary
obtain for me this grace
that I may breathe forth my soul in praise
saying in spirit, if I am unable to do so in words
"Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I give Thee my heart and my soul."
Amen.

Our Lady of Perpetual Succour. I thank all of you who took part and special thanks to those who took on extra duties in the sacristy, looking after the shrine and ministering the Eucharist. The Mass yesterday for the Feast was very special. Now we look forward to a year of celebrating the 150 years that we, the Redemptorists, have had possession of the icon, including the pilgrimage to Rome next April.
