Brother Knights, I have just received notice that our Honoary Brother Knight, and a usher at the 11:30 Mass  Ron Kopera has had a heart attack and is in ICU at Henry Ford Macomb. Please keep Ron in your prayers. Fr. Festus is going to anoint Him Today. Ron transferred from council 7018 when Ss John and Paul council was formed. I will notify council 7018 also.

Consecration of the Sick to Mary

O kind and good Mother, 
whose own soul was pierced by the sword of sorrow, 
look upon us while, 
in our sickness, 
we arraign ourselves beside you 
on the Calvary where your Jesus hangs.

Dowered with the high grace of suffering, 
and hopeful of fulfilling in our own flesh 
what is wanting in our sharing of Christ's passion, 
on behalf of his Mystical Body, the Church, 
we consecrate to you ourselves and our pain. 
We pray that you will place them 
on that Altar of the Cross to which Jesus is affixed. 
May they be little victims of propitiation for our salvation, 
for the salvation of all peoples.

O Mother of Sorrows, 
accept this consecration. 
Strengthen our hopeful hearts, 
that as partakers of Christ's sufferings 
we may also share in his comfort now and for evermore. 



Almighty and Eternal God,
You are the everlasting health of those who believe in You.
Hear us for Your sick servant (N...)
for whom we implore the aid of Your tender mercy,
that being restored to bodily health,
he (she) may give thanks to You in Your Church.
Through Christ our Lord.
