ABOUT MOTHER GUADALUPE’S FEAST
On Saturday September 21, 2019 at 8:00 p.m. the solemn celebration of the Feast of Blessed Mary Guadalupe took place with great participation of faithful in the Parish of Our Lady of the Angels of ALBAL, where it was natural and She was baptized, remembering it in the framework of the celebration of all the Valencian martyrs. The Parish Priest, Mr. Engracio Ballester, preached excellently filling his fellow citizens with fervor and in the preparatory triduum that was dedicated to her on the 18th, 19th and 20th, he illustrated the life of our martyr in great detail, leaving admiration, desires in the assistants of imitation and need of her intercession.
On Thursday, October 3 at 7:00 p.m., the Holy Mass of his Feast was celebrated at Al Pie de la Cruz in MISLATA, where her remains rest. The celebration was presided by Father Fray Moises Mª Jamarillo Martinez OSM, who preached on the courage and love of the Order of the first Servant’s martyr, and encouraged by the songs of the theological student friars. In addition to the devotees of Mislata and Valencia, they came to venerate their “Aunt” some of their Albal nieces. You can see some photos of that day in the IMAGE GALLERY.
These news are accompanied by photos of that day of the Convent of Our Lady of Sorrows of the Servant of Mary of Madrid and of the Sanctuary of the Virgin of the Port of Servants of Mary of Plasencia.
THE INFORMATION SHEET ON THE WEB
This is beautiful news for all the devotees of Mother Guadalupe, especially for those who have recently discovered the great figure of this famous martyr of Christ, since from now on you can enjoy the INFORMATIVE LEAVES of the previous and even old numbers and check how the process of his Cause has evolved through the publication of such a humble instrument. You will find all the numbers kept in our file in the DOCUMENTS section. Too bad they weren’t all preserved. However, the first SHEET edited by the Nuns of Al Pie de la Cruz, aided by the holy Vice-Postulator of the Cause, the Revdo, has reached us. Félix Mª Maletto OSM. I am sure that when you consult them, you will be filled with greater devotion and with great desires to support with prayers and alms the Blessed Mother Guadalupe’s Cause in the hope of seeing her deserved canonization soon.
THE LITURGY OF THE HOURS IS AVAILABLE IN OUR WEBSITE
To please all those who asked us for the Service of Beata Maria de Guadalupe from the 3rd of October and in preparation for Her Liturgical Feast, the texts of the Liturgy of the Hours in the section LITURGICAL FEAST, for the faithful communities and lay people devotees of our beloved Mother of Guadalupe, who pray the Divine Office, can follow our public prayer at the Church as due worship to this blessed martyr of our Order.
NEW EDITION OF THE HOLY MASS
In the year 2001, immediately after their beatification, the Vicepostulation sent all their Servites on Spain and Latin America the Mass of the Beata Maria de Guadalupe in photocopies and from 2006 it was also available in PDF format in their website. We are aware thatsome Communities have celebrated the mass with lots of fondness, while in others the mass copies were misplaced or were not aware of their availability on the web.
Divine Providence has sought that a very devout lady, recently widowed, fund a new edition of the Holy Mass so that all devout Servites and priests can duly celebrate it, as per the liturgical calendar of Our Order, at least, every 3rd of October.
This edition is more suitable than the last and makes the celebration more comfortable. Apart from its proper prayers, there has been incorporated amonition, a penitential act and supplications. These three new elements can be adapted according to the celebration. To help the celebrants, it is included Prefaces of The Holy Martyrs, of The Virgins and the Preface proper of the Saints and Beatified of the Servite Order of Mary, followed at the end the Solemn Blessing. For the reassurance of everybody, this edition of the Holy Mass has the corresponding authorization of our Provincial Father according to Canon Law. (Can. 832)
I’m sure that everyone will enjoy this new publication, as it will help us to bring glory to god while we ask for his blessing by means via the first Martyr of Our Order.
The publication can be downloaded on the section LITURGICAL FEAST or ask for a copy in the Vicepostulation.
The Vicepostulation haskicked off again the edition publishing of the Newsletter of the Canonitzation Cause of the Beata Madre Mª Guadalupe Ricart Olmos, stopped for while due, among other reasons, to a lack of donations. Thanks to some generous contributions the beloved and necessary newsletter has resumed and through it many have known the admirable figure of our Mother of Guadalupe and her awe striking testament of faith during the persecution of the Church in Spain during the 1930s. Thankful for the contributions that have made this possible, we ask as well
