NEW PODCAST: Father Noah Morey, Chaplain at Bishop Ireton High School and a priest in residence at the Basilica of Saint Mary, offered a reflection on the Scourging at the Pillar during our Communal First Saturday for today. Listen to it here on our website (https://stmaryoldtown.org/fr-noah-scourging) or on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

As part of our Communal First Saturdays, one of our priests will reflect on a mystery of the Rosary on the first Saturday of each month. These are typically held in the church, but the public Communal First Saturdays are suspended during the Coronavirus pandemic.

"Joseph, by the work of your hands and the sweat of your brow, you supported Jesus and Mary, and had the Son of God as your fellow worker.
Teach me to work as you did,with patience and perseverance, for God and for those whom God has given me to support. Teach me to see in my fellow workers the Christ who desires to be in them, that I may always be charitable and forbearing towards all.
Grant me to look upon work with the eyes of faith, so that I shall recognize in it my share in God’s own creative activity and in Christ’s work of our redemption, and so take pride in it.
When it is pleasant and productive, remind me to give thanks to God for it. And when it is burdensome, teach me to offer it to God, in reparation for my sins and the sins of the world. Amen"

St. Joseph the Worker, pray for us!
