First Saturday Meditations at Mary Farm

The Apostolate of the Suffering is offering you an opportunity to come together on the first Saturday of each month, starting March 4th, 2023 for meditation on the mysteries of the Holy Rosary.  Our Lady of Fatima asks us all to console her Immaculate Heart due to the vast ingratitude, blasphemies and offenses against her by making reparations to her on the First Saturday of each month.  This includes:  Going to Confession and receiving Holy Communion, praying five decades of the Rosary, and in addition, meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary. We gather together at Mary Farm to complete this last part of this devotion to Our Lady:  to meditate the Holy Rosary mysteries. 

Our meditations and reflections are based on the visions and revelations from Our Lady to Venerable Sr. Mary of Agreda as she recorded them in her book, Mystical City of God.  We complete our meditations by praying the Stations of the Cross.  All are invited; you need not be a member of the Apostolate to offer up about an hour of your time to console the Immaculate Heart of Mary by contemplating the Holy Rosary mysteries.

We will be meeting at the John Smus Memorial Hall on Mary Farm property at 10am, rain or shine March through December, 2023 on the first Saturday of each month.  Please contact Stasia Bronner with questions:  413-324-6708 or email:  [email protected]  Mary Farm is located at 1915 Ware Street,(Rt 32) Palmer, MA.

FRIENDS OF THE CROSS

“Friends of the Cross” is a Catholic fellowship which grew out of last year’s Lenten series which focused on St. Louis de Montfort’s timeless treasure entitled “Letter to the Friends of the Cross” written in the early 1700’s to a group of Catholics who called themselves – Friends of the Cross. 

We abide by the teachings of the Church and the only requirement is that people will read the book and desire to deepen one’s faith on this path. ALL IS CONFIDENTIAL! This ground rule ensures an atmosphere of safety, charity and respect for one another.

 If you are interested…….just show up! Friends of The Cross will meet @ St. Mary's Hall on the Second Tuesday of every month.
