ASH WEDNESDAY: FEBRUARY 10, 2016:  

OUR JOURNEY THROUGH LENT BEGINS
 
Ash-Wednesday (1)
 
 

On Wednesday we begin the season of Lent which is our preparation for the Easter celebration of Jesus’ resurrection. Excluding Sundays it is a season of forty days, in imitation of Jesus spending forty days in the desert. Jesus fasted in the desert, and overcame the devil’s temptations. Jesus never sinned but in the desert he was tempted, and during these forty days of Lent we remember Jesus in the desert as we try to overcome temptation in our lives and to overcome sinfulness. There is practically no hiding place or shelter in the desert and the difficulties of the desert make whatever is inside a person come to the surface. The desert tests and shows up a person as he/she is. Lent is an invitation to us to take the courageous step of “going into the desert” and not hiding from what lies hidden deep within us. Lent is a time to put our souls before a mirror and see ourselves as we really are. Lent is an invitation to allow our sin and darkness and wounds come to the surface so that we can deal with them  and allow them to be HEALED BY THE MERCY OF JESUS CHRIST.

OUR LENTEN PARISH MISSION
“Finding Our Way: Three Nights focused on Mercy”

A classical way of looking at the 40 days of Lent is in concentrating on our journey back to God and acknowledging that periodically we get lost. If we want to find our way back on the journey, if we want to consult the best compass possible, we need only look to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ: the Way, the Truth, and the Life.Please join with us for our Lenten Parish Mission at 7:00 PM in the Basilica, as we seek to realign our compasses, and immerse ourselves in the mercy of the One-Who-Is-Mercy.  Come for one, two, or all three nights. The choice is yours!

TWENTY-FOUR HOURS FOR THE LORD 

Pope Francis states in the Misericordiae Vultus– the Official Bull of Indiction of the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, that he would like Friday, March 4th thru Saturday, March 5th, 2016 to be set aside as “24 Hours for the Lord”  Across the globe on the same day—we are called to realign our compass on the Lord Jesus Christ.  In addition to the Masses offered, the Stations of the Cross and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, the opportunity to avail ourselves to the Father’s Mercy through Confession or the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be provided on Friday, March 4th from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm and Saturday, March 5th from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm. 

 

 

ABCD

Archbishop’s Charities and Development Drive (ABCD) Begins

 

As we begin the 2016 year, let us reflect on the many blessings in our lives.  When we truly believe that all we have is a gift from God, then we must be willing to give up some things so that we can share our blessings as God intended.  Living a stewardship lifestyle means not only being responsible for our own life, but the lives of others as well.  

Jesus teaches us that we are called to serve one another.  Sacrifice is not a word that many people like to hear.  We think it means that we must give up something that we want.  However, the literal meaning of sacrifice is “to make holy,” from the words of “sacer” meaning sacred and “facere” meaning to make.  In other words, we make our lives holy by sharing our gifts in the service of God.

If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.  Mark 9:35.

Soon we will be asking you to make a contribution to this year’s ABCD, please take this time to prayerfully consider what sacrificial gift you will be able to place at God’s service.

CONVENT/RENEWAL CENTER UPDATES

Goals & vision
CHANGE IN TRAFFIC PATTERN OF WINDSOR LANE PARKING LOTS                                                                                                                                 

We have recently completed the striping of both parking lots off of Windsor Lane and there are now identifiable traffic patterns as well as no parking fire lanes. Please observe the directional arrows, veering right upon entering the back lot facing Sacred Heart Hall and following the pattern around the lot to exit properly. Please use caution when entering and exiting the lot.

Parking spaces have been striped to provide for greater order and the convenience of all. Please do not park outside of the parking spaces. Overflow parking may take place along the back wall facing Amelia Street. Please do not park in the traffic lanes. Handicap spaces will be marked within the month.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

PERPETUAL ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT DURING CONSTRUCTION

For the convenience of all adorers, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament for all hours now takes place in the New Beginnings Chapel. The New Beginnings Chapel is the second building on the right as you enter through the gate of the back parking lot that is the entrance to the rear of the Basilica School and Sacred Heart Hall.

Again, thank you for your cooperation during this capital renovation project.

God bless you for your witness of faith.

RELOCATION OF RENEWAL CENTER MEETINGS & MINISTRIES

As of Friday, August 14th 2015, all prayer, faith formation, and ministerial groups have vacated the Renewal Center to make way for the renovation of the Convent/Renewal Center.

Please see the menu tabs along the top of this page to locate where your particular group is now meeting

OTHER ACCOMMODATIONS:
  • The Sisters of the Holy Spirit have also vacated the Convent and have been accommodated by a generous family in their Key Haven home. 
  • Hansen and Bringle Cabinets will be disassembling and storing the curio cabinets.  Their contents along with photographs will be stored in a climate controlled storage facility for safe keeping. Other pictures will be displayed throughout the Basilica School where students, faculty and visitors may enjoy them. The furniture, fixtures and equipment have been placed in a s storage container located near The Sacred Heart Hall.

 

May we give thanks to God for the positive collaboration of parishioners in preparation for this much needed renovation project.

jubilee-page-header

 

Pope Francis began his pontificate by inviting us to reflect on “the Lord’s most powerful message: mercy.” In his first homily he said: “It is not easy to entrust oneself to God’s mercy, because it is like an abyss beyond our comprehension. But we must! ” (Homily St. Anna, March 2013)

With the Declaration of this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis invites us to “gaze even more attentively on mercy so that we may become a more effective sign of the Father’s action in our lives.” The mercy of God is not an abstract idea, but a concrete reality with which he reveals his love as that of a father or a mother, moved to the very depths out of love for their child. (Misericordiae Vultus, “The Face of Mercy”)

Everyone is encouraged in this Year of Mercy to become effective witnesses to the saving grace of Jesus Christ in their lives by performing acts of forgiveness, penance, and mercy. Throughout this Holy Year, various programs and activities will be available to aid people of God to more fully experience and share the graces of the special Year of Mercy. 

All the faithful are encouraged to participate in this extraordinary year to the fullest extent of their ability.

THE HOLY DOOR OF MERCY 

 

This Jubilee observance is unique in that Pope Francis has instructed that Doors of Mercy be designated not only in the Major Basilicas in Rome but in every diocese around the world, in all cathedral churches and major shrines.

The rite of opening the Holy Door is intended to symbolically illustrate the idea that the Church’s faithful are offered an “extraordinary path” toward salvation during the time of Jubilee. However, we must remember that merely walking through this Holy Door will not grant one forgiveness or divine blessings! It has to be accompanied by an inner desire for conversion of one’s heart and a thirst for God’s intervention.

To mark the start of the Jubilee Year of Mercy, churches around the world — including six in the Archdiocese of Miami — opened a Holy Door on the third Sunday of Advent — five days after the opening of the Holy Door in Rome.  Archbishop Thomas Wenski opened the Holy Door of the Cathedral of St. Mary in Miami on December 13th at 10:00 AM. The Holy Door here at the Basilica of St. Mary Star of the Sea, opened on the same Sunday in Advent, symbolizes our passage or transition into a special year of evangelization and prayer. We invite everyone passing through the Basilica’s Door to join us on that journey.

Pope Francis’ Encyclical On The Environment Released
Laudato Si’: On Care For Our Common Home

basilica

Care for Our Common Home (Laudato Si’) is the new appeal from Pope Francis addressed to “every person living on this planet” for an inclusive dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet. Pope Francis calls the Church and the world to acknowledge the urgency of our environmental challenges and to join him in embarking on a new path. This encyclical is written with both hope and resolve, looking to our common future with candor and humility.
