Mass for the Sick Celebrated on the Actual Feast of St. Therese

Published by Fr. Richard Magararu, SMM in News Update · 15/10/2015 03:42:08

It was told that shortly after the death of St. Therese rain of roses began.  Cures of painful and fatal diseases and many other miraculous experiences were attributed to her intercession. Sometimes people found inner peace and regained an inner warmth of spirit and confidence by appealing to St. Therese. Many miracles and actions of St.Therese however, do not involve roses. More often than not, marvelous things happen in people's lives as they ask for her heavenly intercession. The miracles, healings and inner peace come from the trust one places in God, not from any manifestation of roses.  This powerful intercession of St. Therese moved the parish community to remember in a unique way the physically weak parishioners.

The feast of St. Therese is usually celebrated in our parish on  the first Sunday of October. This year, on the first day of October, the actual feast day of St. Therese a special mass was celebrated.  This activity has been a practice in the parish and is organized by the Extraordinary Ministers of The Eucharist whose ministry is also to visit the sick and bring them communion every Sunday.  Through the collaboration of the local government of West Rembo (Barangay), the sick brothers and sisters are accompanied to the church for the celebration and are returned to their respective houses after the mass.  

Fr. Richard Magararu, SMM presided the Healing Mass, concelebrated by Fr. Angel Pusikit, SMM and assisted by Rev. Arnel Pagaduan, SMM.  In his homily, Fr. Richard encouraged everyone to learn to surrender everything to God like St. Therese who is known for her “little way”, a child-like trust.  At the end of the mass, the anointing of the sick was administered.  The relic of St. Therese carried by Rev. Arnel was venerated.
