Prayer Should Flow in Both Directions

Yes, that is Fr. John Mary blessing a basket of rocks!
A friend who lives at a great distance requested some blessed rocks from the Mission because she wished to give them to family members. It is her way of sharing some of the graces she experienced at the Mission with her family. It reminded me of a quote that we used here recently:

"The blessing of the priest
is a great means by which
good is made to triumph over evil,
love over hatred,
and mercy over judgement."
From " In Sinu Jesu"
When Heart Speaks to Heart
The Journal of a Priest at Prayer

But prayer should flow in both directions. The graces that God bestows on His priests at their Ordination do not come without cost to them. As Jesus reminds St. Faustina, we need to pray for our priests:

Today, I saw the Lord in great beauty, and He said to me , " My loving host,
pray for priests,
especially during this time of harvest ."
From the Diary of St. Faustina
Divine Mercy In My Soul

The Feast of All Soul is Next Saturday!
Join us for the Blessing!
Pray for Them!

Friday Morning Mass at 8:30 AM

Saturday Evening Mass at 5:30 PM
Saturday Confessions from 4:30-5:15

Confession Schedule at MDM
Tuesday -- 7-8 PM
Sunday -- One hour before Mass begins

A helpful tip for those new to the Mission... If you really want to make sure that you get to Confession, it helps to get there a little early! And by that we mean about 5-10 minutes
before Confession is set to begin. Often there is not enough time for everyone in line to go to confession.
