Mystery of Reconciliation

The Weekly Bulletin is available online

Faithful of the Syro-Malabar Mission worship in the canonically-suppressed St Jeremiah (Latin) Church. The Mission's Administrator has been accorded bi-ritual faculties in the Latin Church and is designated Parochial Vicar for the community of the former Latin parish. He serves a weekly Latin Rite Mass for, and otherwise affords pastoral care to, its faithful, under an agreement between the hierarchs of the respective Churches. Each of the communities retains its separate ritual identity.

"In commemoration of the two communities' first Christmas together sharing our beautiful St. Jeremiah Church, St Jeremiah parishioners gifted the Syro-Malabar community with an Icon of their patron, St. Thomas the Apostle"

Teachings of Christ

“If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel's will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul?" (Mark 8:34-37 ESV)

Holy Angels

O Supreme Leaders of the heavenly armies, * we, who are unworthy, ever beseech you, * that through your prayers you may surround us * with the shelter of the wings of your immaterial glory, * watching over us who fervently fall down and cry out: * “Deliver us from perils, * for you are the commanders of the Powers on high!” (Troparion - Tone 4)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

O Supreme Leaders of the armies of God * and ministers of the Divine Glory, * princes of angels and guides of men, * ask for us what is expedient for us and for great mercy, * for you are the leaders of the Bodiless Hosts. (Kontakion - Tone 2)

Random Proverb

"My son, keep my words and treasure up my commandments with you; keep my commandments and live." (Proverbs 7:1,2 ESV)

Pray Without Ceasing

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

Therefore let us leave untouched the senseless speculations of the masses and the false doctrines, and turn to the teaching delivered to us in the beginning, let us be temperate and ready for our prayers, persevere in fasting, and fervently implore the All-seeing God not to expose us to temptations, since the Lord has said: 'The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.'

St. Polycarp, Epistle to the Philippians
