Nativity Window

Christmas 2012 - Nativity Window

In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.

He was in the beginning with God.

All things came to be through him,
and without him nothing came to be.

What came to be through him was life,
and this light was the light
of the human race;
the light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.
...

And the Word became flesh
and made his dwelling among us
and we saw his glory,
the glory of the Father's only Son,
full of grace and truth.

From his fullness we have all received,
grace in place of grace, ...

No one has ever seen God.

The only Son, God,
who is at the Father's side,
has revealed him.

[John 1:1-5,14,16,18]

      Queenship of Mary

On August 22 we celebrate
the feast of the Queenship of Mary.

The title under which the Diocese of Metuchen
has been placed in Maryís care
--her Queenship-- is very Christ-centered.

This feast highlights Maryís share in her
Sonís kingship over all creation and His full glorification.

Mary is "the lowly handmaid" [Luke 1:38]
who was raised to glory, according to her Sonís promise:
"those who humble themselves shall be exalted."
[Luke 14:11].

As mother of the messianic King who sits
on the throne of David and rules,
the Church declares Mary to be our queen and mother.

From her place at her Sonís side,
Mary intercedes for the Church with a motherís love.

Maryís Queenship gives us great hope,
for we see in Mary the fulfillment of the promise
made to all her Sonís disciples:
"If we persevere, we shall also reign with Him."
[2 Timothy 2:11].

Mary, our Queen, intercede for the faithfull
in the Church of Metuchen who have been entrusted
to your care!

    Pentecost Sequence

Come, Holy Spirit, come!

And from Thy celestial home
Shed a ray of light divine!

Come Father of the poor!

Come source of all our store!

Come within our bosoms shine!

Thou, of comforters the best;
Thou, the soul's most welcome guest;
Sweet refreshment here below;
In our labor, rest most sweet;
Grateful coolness in the heat,
Solace in the midst of woe.

O most blessed Light divine
Shine within these hearts of Thine.

And our inmost being fill!

Where you are not, man has naught,
Nothing good in deed or thought,
Nothing free from taint of ill.

Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
On our dryness pour Thy dew;
Wash the stains of guilt away:
Bend the stubborn heart and will;
Melt the frozen, warm the chill;
Guide the steps that go astray.

On the faithful who adore
And confess you, evermore
In your sev'nfold gift descend;
Give them virtue's sure reward;
Give them Thy salvation, Lord;
Give them joys that never end.

Amen. Alleluia !

[Pentecost Mass]
