    THE MEMORARE

    Remember, O most loving Virgin Mary, that it is a thing unheard of,

    that anyone ever had recourse to your protection, implored your help,

    or sought your intercession, and was left forsaken.

    Filled therefore with confidence in your goodness I fly to you, O Mother,

    Virgin of virgins. To you I come, before you I stand, a sorrowful sinner.

    Despise not my poor words, O Mother of the Word of God,

    but graciously hear and grant my prayer. Amen.

    The Church con-

    cludes the Easter

    season with the feast

    of Pentecost. Pente-

    cost, which means

    ‘fiftieth’ was the sec-

    ond of the three im-

    portant annual feasts

    in the Jewish Calen-

    dar: Passover, Pente-

    cost and Tabernacle.

    Pentecost occurred

    seven weeks after

    Passover and was mainly a celebration of

    thanksgiving for the harvest - a feast of new

    grain and new wine. The first fruits of the

    wheat crop were offered to God. Hundreds of

    Jews living outside Palestine and who spoke

    other languages also attended this feast.

    As you can imagine, it was fitting that this

    special feast day was chosen by God for the

    outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the twelve

    Apostles and the Blessed Virgin Mary. On

    Pentecost, the New Israel (the Church) was

    born. On this day, the Christian religion was

    made universal and the gift of tongues or

    many languages was the proof. In the first

    reading and the gospel, we are given accounts

    of how the disciples

    first received the gift

    of the Holy Spirit.

    In the second reading

    from St Paul’s first

    letter to the Corinthi-

    ans, these gifts of the

    Holy Spirit were ex-

    plained. The gifts of

    the Holy Spirit is not

    only given to each

    individual Christian

    but also it is given for

    the benefit of the church. Our gifts, talents

    and abilities that we receive from the Holy

    Spirit are to be used in service to God and the

    Body of Christ - the Church. As we celebrate

    Pentecost, let us ask the Holy Spirit to take

    control of our lives; both in words and actions.

    O Holy Spirit, Soul of my soul, I adore You.

    Enlighten, guide, strengthen and console

    me. Tell me what I ought to do and command

    me to do it. I promise to be submissive in eve-

    rything that You permit to happen to me,

    only show me what is Your will. Amen.

    CAFOD Coronavirus Emergency Appeal.

    The effects of coronavirus on developing

    countries where CAFOD works are likely to

    be devastating. Families without enough to

    eat and without access to clean water and

    healthcare are particularly vulnerable to

    coronavirus. The poorest and most

    marginalised communities will be pushed

    further into poverty. Your prayers and gifts

    are needed now more than ever to help

    protect the lives of those in poor

    communities. While we are not able to hold

    physical collections in our church, you can

    donate as individuals at cafod.org.uk/

    coronavirusappeal.

    PRAYERS

    Act of Spiritual Communion

    My Jesus, I believe that you are present in this

    Holy Sacrament of the altar. I love you above

    all things and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot now receive

    you sacramentally, come spiritually into my

    soul so that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever. Amen.

    Novena Prayer to the Holy Spirit

    Come, O Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your

    faithful, and enkindle in them the fire of your

    love.

    V. Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be

    created.

    R. And You shall renew the face of the

    earth.

    Let us pray: O God, who taught the hearts of

    the faithful, by the light of the Holy Spirit,

    grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we

    may be always truly wise and ever enjoy in His

    consolation. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

    Prayer to the Holy Spirit

    Come, O Holy Spirit, enlighten my

    understanding so that I may know your

    commands; strengthen my heart against the

    snares of the enemy; enkindle my will … I

    have heard your voice, and I don’t want to

    harden my heart and resist, saying “later …

    tomorrow.” Now! Lest there be no tomorrow

    for me!

    O, Spirit of truth and wisdom, Spirit of

    understanding and counsel, Spirit of joy and

    peace! I want what you want, I want it

    because you want it, I want it as you want it, I

    want it when you want it.

    Holy and divine Spirit! Through the

    intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, your

    Spouse, bring the fullness of your gifts into

    our hearts. Comforted and strengthened by

    you, may we live according to your will and

    may we die praising your infinite mercy.

    Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Due to COVID-19 the Church is closed until

    further notice. The Mass is celebrated daily

    at 12noon & 6pm but without a public

    congregation. Please note that on Saturday,

    6pm Mass is the Sunday Vigil Mass. In these

    emergency circumstances, the obligation to

    attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days is

    removed (CCC #2181). If you have internet

    access, Mass can be watched live on:

    www.catholicenfield.org

    Mass Intentions. As public Masses cannot

    be celebrated at this time, it is generally no longer appropriate for priests to celebrate

    Mass more than once a day, including on

    Sundays. This will mean that some Masses which were to be celebrated on Sunday for a

    special intention would now not be

    celebrated. In these situations, and only whilst these very exceptional circumstances

    continue, it is necessary for a Sunday Mass to be celebrated for more than one intention. If

    you have arranged to have a Mass celebrated

    on Sunday for a specific intention and do not wish to have that intention included with

    other intentions, in what is known as a

    Collective Intention Mass, please contact the parish office.

    Offertory Envelopes. As everyone is aware

    the distribution of the new offertory boxes

    with weekly envelopes could not happen due

    to COVID-19 lockdown. Many parishioners

    have called in and collected their boxes

    directly from the presbytery. As we are not

    supposed to encourage anybody to leave

    home but for necessities, as from this week,

    PARISH NOTICES
