Bishop David A. Konderla, Bishop of the Diocese of Tulsa and Eastern Oklahoma, announced today the following priests' assignments. Please pray for these priests as they begin this important transition in their ministry in a spirit of faithful obedience and with gratitude to the faithful for their continued support.
Bishop Konderla's Decree allows the faithful to be dispensed from the obligation to abstain from meat on the Memorial of Saint Patrick which falls on Friday, March 17 and abstain on some other day during Lent.
November is the month of Holy Souls--part of the Communion of Saints. Throughout the month, the Church's tradition holds that we pray for our deceased relatives and friends. "Remember me, O my God, for good." Nehemiah 13:31
The month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary. "Today, when dangers far greater than those of the ancient Turks threaten not only Christianity but all civilization, we are urged by our Blessed Mother to turn again to the Rosary for help. If men in sufficient numbers do this, and at the same time carry out the other conditions that she has laid down, we have the greater reason for confidence that we will be delivered from our dangers." -- Mary in our Life by Fr. William G. Most
For Catholics, September is the month of Our Lady of Sorrows, immediately following August's devotion to the Immaculate Heart, and preceding October's devotion to Our Lady of the Rosary. September is an ideal time to strengthen our connection to Our Blessed Mother.
The month of August is traditionally dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Since the 16th Century, Catholic piety has assigned entire months to special devotions. The physical heart of Mary is venerated (and not adored as the Sacred Heart of Jesus is) because it is united to her person and is the seat of her love (especially for her divine Son), virtue and inner life. O Mary Immaculate, inflame our hearts with one ray of the burning love of thy pure heart.
