Behold, O my most loving Jesus, how far Thine exceeding love hath reached! 
Of Thine own Flesh and Most Precious Blood Thou hast prepared for me a Divine table 
To give Thyself wholly to me. Grant that I may learn to make a return of love to Thee. Amen

This month’s Padre Pio Mass, on Tuesday 12th at 7.30pm, falls on the Vigil of Our Lady of Fatima.  Our Lady came to Fatima in 1917 to call her children to her Immaculate Heart.
