THE HOLY FATHER”S INTENTIONS FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY 2017: That all those who are afflicted, especially the poor, the refugees, and the marginalized may find welcome and comfort in our communities.
The month of February is traditionally dedicated to the Holy Family. Between the events that marked Christmas and the beginning of Jesus’ public life, the church wants us to recall the example of the Holy Family and for us as Christians to emulate this way of life.
February also falls within the liturgical season of Ordinary Time, it is represented by the color green, the symbol of hope.
The feast of the Presentation or Candlemas is February 2nd and is a festival of light. The procession in which the blessed candles are carried by clergy and the faithful. It recalls by its symbolism the manifestation of Christ the light of the world. A light to the revelation of the Gentiles, and the people of Israel.
The Gospel readings for the Sundays of February are taken from St. Matthew and are Year A Cycle 1 of the readings.
The Bishop of Providence, Bishop Tobin, has declared 2017 to be the “Year with Mary, our Mother” As Catholics, our devotion to Mary always leads to Jesus. She is the sign post, but not the final destination. If we look at her, she will point to Jesus and say, “Do whatever He tells you.” And therein lies the road to salvation. .
Our Lady of Guadalupe, my mother, into your hands joined in prayer, take my prayers, petitions, and hopes, and present them to Jesus for me. Remembering the love and care your hands rendered to Him, He will not refuse what they hold now, even though they are from me. Amen
