MEMORIAL of “The Holy Name of Mary”

Dear Readers:

In his talks about St. Joseph, Marian Father Fr. Don Calloway asks how to return society, families, members of the Church back to Godliness and holiness?

He insists that “now” is the time of St. Joseph and that we have never needed him more in the world, to help us, lead us, guide us as he did when bringing Jesus and Our Lady from Bethlehem into Egypt, and throughout their lives.

Photo of Andor - S. José with the baby Jesus for full day veneration invitation to the community invited to come to the Church to venerate the hand of Saint Joseph. This tradition occurs at Lapa on August 22 for Our Lady of the Assumption, and then next Tuesday at the Capela das Dores to honour Our Lady.

In today’s video, Pe Nuno, the spiritual director for the Terço on the Camino Project presented a beautiful majestic procession that is hosted each 2nd Sunday of September to honour St. Joseph. This major city-wide event was funded by the Economic Council and various Confraternities, with the help of countless members of the community coming together at S. José de Ribamar, Padre Nuno’s second parish named after the patron of the Universal Church. Below is a salt & sand carpet created throughout the past week by the Missionaries / mothers, youth leaders:

Dyed carpet for procession created by the local community & the Missionary Group for Padre Nuno’s Procession.

Recited this evening after the Holy Mass was the St. Joseph prayer written by Padre Nuno:

Oração a S. José

Glorioso S. José, A ti recorremos neste tempo oportuno em tua honra;
A ti recomendamos todas as nossas intenções: Leva-nos junto do teu filho e nosso irmão Jesus Cristo; Conta-lhe todas as nossas preocupações e anseios; Deixa que o teu silêncio fale em nós do amor que devemos à voz do Pai do céu;
Coloca-nos ao lado da tua esposa e nossa Mãe – Maria;
Protege as nossas famílias;
Ampara todos os que vacilam na fé;
E, no aconchego do teu colo,
Faz-nos olhar com um coração manso e humilde os que nos rodeiam,
Para que possamos ser e viver distinguidos como verdadeiros filhos. Ámen.1

Enjoy!

About “St. Joseph’s Church” (Portugal)

Authored by:

Dra Deolinda Carneiro (Translated from the Orignal Text in Portuguese)

Published scholar, Researcher, Art Historian, Museum Curator and Director of the Municipal Museum in Póvoa de Varzim, Portugal2


Igreja de S. José de Ribamar da Póvoa de Varzim

Constructed on the site of the neo-Romanesque chapel consecrated in 1960 and that was built by the architect Moura Coutinho de Almeida d' Eça, the new church was designed by the architect Rufino, the senior official of the "Public Works" and renovated by the architect Moreira da Silva, from Porto, in the seventies.

Picture donated from the Archives of the Municipal Museum in Póvoa de Varzim.

In the sixties, the church in its stylized “neo-Gothic style” had separate chapels. Very tall, painted white, with simple stained glass windows in blue and yellow tones (colors of “Bairro Norte”), São José was cold and it became difficult to implement the liturgical changes recommended by the Second Vatican Council.

The interior space of the church was uncomfortable and the chapel area was isolated, not having the appropriate size for the ceremonies to take place in the most solemn way.

The architect Moreira da Silva tried to make the church more practical for worship. He lined the corrugated wood ceiling, improving the acoustics of the Church, and fans were added to the space allowing air circulation that prevented people from fainting during the season of "baths". The chapels became open-concept in the area of the old sacristies; then next to the chapel was adapted (as a pseudo-transept) to increase the size of the church. In the "side aisles", the saints, almost all life-size, were placed in small granite corbels, and the altarpieces that filled the primitive "chapels" were removed.


“THE HOLY NAME OF MARY” [MEMORIAL 12 SEPT] & OUR LADY OF SORROWS [15 SEPT]3


The first part of today’s video features a very short discussion on the 7 Sorrows by Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle who returns to our podcast to record for Season 2 this week. Donna-Marie explores in the above video her love for this devotion, and the various pictures in this presentation were chosen by Dra. Carneiro and donated by the Municipal Museum which captured the images from the Capela Nossa Senhora das Dores in Portugal. NOTE: Abbey Fredrickson on “Hallow” explains the 7 Sorrows of Our Lady Devotion here: https://hallow.com/blog/7-sorrows/.


WHY DO WE VENERATE THE HOLY NAME OF MARY?


According to FREDERICK G. HOLWECK whose entry for Catholic Answers: “Name of Mary, Feast of the Holy" states:

We venerate the name of Mary because it belongs to her who is the Mother of God, the holiest of creatures, the Queen of heaven and earth, the Mother of mercy. The object of the feast is the Holy Virgin bearing the name of Mirjam (Mary); the feast commemorates all the privileges given to Mary by God and all the graces we have received through her intercession and mediation.

He continues:

After the siege of Vienna and the glorious victory of Sobieski over the Turks (September 12, 1683), the feast was extended to the universal Church by Innocent XI, and assigned to the Sunday after the Nativity of Mary by a Decree of November 25, 1683 (duplex majus); it was granted to Austria as d. 2. classis on August 1, 1684. According to a Decree of July 8, 1908, whenever this feast cannot be celebrated on its proper Sunday on account of the occurrence of some feast of a higher rank, it must be kept on September 12, the day on which the victory of Sobieski is commemorated in the Roman Martyrology.4

TRANSLATION of Prayer to St. Joseph

by: Fr. Nuno Rocha [14 september 2023]


Oração a S. José | Prayer to St. Joseph

Glorious St. Joseph, in this moment, 

To you we have recourse in your honour; 

To you we recommend all of our intentions:

Bring us to your son and our brother, Jesus Christ;

Tell Him all of our worries and desires;

Let your silence speak in us of the love we owe to the voice of the Father in Heaven; Place us at the side of your wife and our Mother – Mary;

Protect our families; sustain all who falter in faith; 

And, in the warmth of your lap, make us look with a meek and humble heart at those around us, so that we can be and live as your true children.

Amen.


THE NOVENA OF THE HOLY CLOAK of ST. JOSEPH


In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

O Glorious Patriarch St. Joseph, I humbly prostrate myself before Thee. I beg the Lord Jesus, thine Immaculate Spouse, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and all the Angels and Saints in the Heavenly Court, to join me in this devotion. I offer thee this precious cloak, while pledging my sincerest faith and devotion. I promise to do all in my power to honor thee throughout my lifetime to prove my love for thee.

SORROW AS RELATED TO A CIRCUMSTANCE / EVENT


Sorrow • an event or circumstance that causes sorrow: it was a great sorrow to her when they separated.

See our post on the 7-sorrows here:

In the 17th century the feast was extended to the universal Church and given another date:

After the siege of Vienna and the glorious victory of Sobieski over the [Ottoman Empire] (12 Sept., 1683), the feast was extended to the universal Church by Pope Innocent XI, and assigned to the Sunday after the Nativity of Mary.

It wasn’t until 1908 that a decree stated, “whenever this feast cannot be celebrated on its proper Sunday on account of the occurrence of some feast of a higher rank, it must be kept on 12 Sept., the day on which the victory of Sobieski is commemorated in the Roman Martyrology.”
