Join Us To Pray The Rosary

Download the current Prayer List

The St Pius X Knights of Columbus host a prayer meeting (remotely) each Friday 1PM. All are welcome to join us. We pray the Rosary for the sick and distressed. We use Webex (a free Cisco product) as our telecommuting platform. It allows the participant to join the meeting by telephone, smart phone, tablet or computer. You can join by audio only or share your video. The login procedure for the meeting is shown below. If you would like to add someone to our prayer list please contact Dan Pinda at drpinda@q.com. If you would like a guide to praying the Rosary go tohttp://www.kofc.org/en/resources/cis/devotionals/4772.pdf.

 

A typical Rosary meeting consists of a short greeting period as participants join the meeting. A solicitation for names to be added to the list, requests for volunteers to lead a decade of the Rosary, Deacon Dennis starts the Rosary, and we proceed through the decades and conclude with prayers for the sick and distressed and for Protection in time of Pandemic. During the Rosary all participants are muted except for the individual leading the decade. This limits the chaos of having multiple people speaking at the same time over the telephone.

New to Webex?  

If this is your first use of Webex you will need to download an application for videoconferencing. You will get the download prompt when you access the website above.  You do not have to wait for the meeting to start this process, do it before the meeting.  Try to have everything ready before 1PM on Friday.  If you load the app now and try to log into the meeting it will say your meeting has not started, but at least you will have all of the pieces in place for tomorrow.  There will be a practice session each Thursday at 1PM to help those wanting to learn how to embrace this ability in a less intimidating environment. Use the same login credentials listed above. If you have any problems setting up your environment please  email  Dan Pinda at drpinda@q.com.

 

Prayer for Protection in Time of Pandemic

 

O Mary, you always brighten our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who, at the Cross, took part in Jesus’ pain while remaining steadfast in faith.

 

O loving Mother, you know what we need, and we are confident you will provide for us as at Cana in Galilee. Intercede for us with your Son Jesus, the Divine Physician, for those who have fallen ill, for those who are vulnerable, and for those who have died.

 

Intercede also for those charged with protecting the health and safety of others and for those who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure.

 

Help us, O Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who took upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows, so as to lead us, through the Cross, to the glory of the Resurrection. Amen.

 

Under thy protection we seek refuge, O Holy Mother of God. In our needs, despise not our petitions, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.

Holy Virgin of Guadalupe,
Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas.
We fly to you today as your beloved children.
We ask you to intercede for us with your Son,
as you did at the wedding in Cana.

 

Pray for us, loving Mother,
and gain for our nation and world,
and for all our families and loved ones,
the protection of your holy angels,
that we may be spared the worst of this illness.

 

For those already afflicted,
we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.
Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful,
wipe away their tears and help them to trust.

 

In this time of trial and testing,
teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be

patient and kind.
Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to
our hearts.


We come to you with confidence,
knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother,
health of the sick and cause of our joy.


Shelter us under the mantle of your protection,
keep us in the embrace of your arms,
help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus.
Amen.

Virgen Santísima de Guadalupe,

Reina de los Ángeles y Madre de las Américas.
Acudimos a ti hoy como tus amados hijos.
Te pedimos que intercedas por nosotros con tu Hijo,
como lo hiciste en las bodas de Caná.


Ruega por nosotros, Madre amorosa,
y obtén para nuestra nación, nuestro mundo,
y para todas nuestras familias y seres queridos,
la protección de tus santos ángeles,
para que podamos salvarnos de lo peor de esta enfermedad.

 

Para aquellos que ya están afectados,
te pedimos que les concedas la gracia de la sanación y
la liberación.

Escucha los gritos de aquellos que son vulnerables y temerosos,
seca sus lágrimas y ayúdalos a confiar.

 

En este tiempo de dificultad y prueba,
enséñanos a todos en la Iglesia a amarnos los unos a los otros

y a ser pacientes y amables.

 

Ayúdanos a llevar la paz de Jesús a nuestra tierra y a nuestros
corazones.
Acudimos a ti con confianza, sabiendo que realmente eres
nuestra madre compasiva,
la salud de los enfermos y la causa de nuestra alegría.

 

Refúgianos bajo el manto de tu protección, mantennos
en el abrazo de tus brazos,
ayúdanos a conocer siempre el amor de tu Hijo, Jesús.
Amén
