Little Girl, Get Up!

"When Jesus had crossed in the boat to the other side, a large crowd gathered round him and he stayed by the lakeside. Then one of the synagogue officials came up, Jairus by name, and seeing him, fell at his feet and pleaded with him earnestly, saying, ‘My little daughter is desperately sick. Do come and lay your hands on her to make her better and save her life.’ Jesus went with him and a large crowd followed him; they were pressing all round him. While he was still speaking some people arrived from the house of the synagogue official to say, ‘Your daughter is dead: why put the Master to any further trouble?’ But Jesus had overheard this remark of theirs and he said to the official, ‘Do not be afraid; only have faith.’ And he allowed no one to go with him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. So they came to the official’s house and Jesus noticed all the commotion, with people weeping and wailing unrestrainedly. He went in and said to them, ‘Why all this commotion and crying? The child is not dead, but asleep.’ But they laughed at him. So he turned them all out and, taking with him the child’s father and mother and his own companions, he went into the place where the child lay. And taking the child by the hand he said to her, ‘Talitha, kum!’ which means, ‘Little girl, I tell you to get up.’ The little girl got up at once and began to walk about, for she was twelve years old. At this they were overcome with astonishment, and he ordered them strictly not to let anyone know about it, and told them to give her something to eat." – Mark 5:21-24,35-43, which is part of today's Gospel at Mass. My sermon for today can be read here. Stained glass window from the church of St John the Evangelist in Bury St Edmunds.

Oração à São Miguel Arcanjo
“São Miguel Arcanjo, defendei-nos no combate, sede o nosso refúgio contra as maldades e ciladas do demônio. Ordene-lhe Deus, instantemente o pedimos, e vós, príncipe da milícia celeste, pela virtude divina, precipitai no inferno a satanás e aos outros espíritos malignos, que andam pelo mundo para perder as almas. Amém!”

Oração à São José:
Amado São José, vós que fostes instrumento da Providência Divina na Família de Nazaré, na Igreja e para com vossos irmãos, fixai nossos olhos nas coisas que não passam e dai-nos a graça de ordenar nossas vidas para os tesouros do céu. Amém! (em seguida, reza-se um Pai-nosso, uma Ave Maria, um Glória)
Glorioso São José, que fostes modelo de vivência da pobreza, da sobriedade, de instrumento da Divina Providência; vós que não detivestes para vós mesmo nenhum bem material ou espiritual, destinando-os sempre às necessidades de Jesus, de Maria e dos vossos irmãos; vós que, por graça divina, vistes restaurada em vós a vocação original do homem à caridade, trabalho, partilha e comunhão; vós que, inspirado pelo Espírito Santo, acolhestes a nova economia do Reino do vosso Filho Jesus, intercedei para que acolhamos o mesmo convite que vos fez o Pai de ser instrumentos de Sua Paz, de Sua Providência, de Sua Caridade, de Sua Pobreza para o homem de hoje. Amém
