The Month of June
Devotion to the Sacred Heart is a wonderful historical expression of the Church’s piety for Christ, her Spouse and Lord: it calls for a fundamental attitude of conversion and reparation, of love and gratitude, apostolic commitment and dedication to Christ and his saving work. For these reasons, the devotion is recommended and its renewal encouraged by the Holy See and by the Bishops. Such renewal touches on the devotion’s linguistic and iconographic expressions; on consciousness of its biblical origins and its connection with the great mysteries of the faith; on affirming the primacy of the love of God and neighbour as the essential content of the devotion itself. The Directory of Popular Piety - 172.
Meditating on the Heart of Christ opens us to know the Person of Jesus in the fullness of His love. This love of Christ for us is revealed by all he did and suffered for us -- in Nazareth, on the Cross, in giving Himself in the Blessed Sacrament, in His teaching and healing, in His praying and working. When we speak of the Sacred Heart, we mean Jesus showing us His Heart, Jesus all love for us and all lovable.

Congratulations to our Confirmandi and First Communicants
The Most Reverend Thomas J. Rodi, Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Mobile, was at Our lady of Guadalupe Church for the Confirmation Mass on Thursday May 24th at 6:30 p.m. Anna Janes, Leah Gordy, Emily Talbot and Erica Blackburn celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation and received the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
We extend heartfelt congratulations to the Confirmandi, their sponsors and families in celebration of this milestone in their spiritual journey with Christ. The sacraments, as the Church teaches, are ample fountains of God’s grace. Confirmation in particular confers on believers the grace of the Holy Spirit. We pray that as they continue their journey of faith, they may be guided by the gifts they received.
Thank you to everyone who participated in making our First Communicants special day, Sunday, May 6th a joyful occasion. Abundant blessings to our First Communicants: Joseph Mangini, John Espy and Aiden Smith. Let us welcome these children as they join us in the celebration of the Eucharist.

The Mass Explained
The Mass: An Introduction is presented by the Archdiocese of Mobile in association with 4PM Media. The series features Archbishop Rodi with Fr. Victor Ingalls, Dr. Norman McCrummen, and Dr. Allison Meyer. The series asks four questions:
1. Why worship on Sundays?
2. Why a meal?
3. Why do we worship the way we do?
4. Why does the extraordinary come to us in ordinary ways?
Make Our Lady of Guadalupe your home!
Attend Sunday Mass with us; there is no better way to begin your week.
