In Testimonium...

The special prayer for peace

"Lord Jesus Christ, who said to your apostles 'Peace I leave you my peace I give you' look not on our sins but on the faith of your Church and graciously grant her peace and unity in accordance with your will, who live and reign for ever and ever. Amen."

which in the Extraordinary Form of the Mass the priest prays in a low voice immediately after the Agnus Dei and in the Ordinary Form of the Mass he prays out loud immediately after the Pater Noster made its appearance since the eleventh century, first of all in German territory. It replaced an older prayer for peace. From then on it recurred regularly, even in Italian Mass plans, and thus was introduced into the Missal of Pius V.

Year of Mercy Confessions

Year of MercyBeginning on December 2 during the first Week of Advent, the priests of St. John the Beloved will be hearing extra confessions on Wednesdays. On the hour every hour between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. a priest will be in the confessional and stay as long as there are penitents. One day we will have green lights to indicate an available confessor. In the meantime please look for the white light glowing through the window.
