The feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe will be celebrated in many parishes – Diocese of Scranton https://obotafumeiro.com/the-feast-of-our-lady-of-guadalupe-will-be-celebrated-in-many-parishes-diocese-of-scranton/ Thu, 17 Nov 2022 19:16:54 +0000 https://obotafumeiro.com/the-feast-of-our-lady-of-guadalupe-will-be-celebrated-in-many-parishes-diocese-of-scranton/

Through the intercession of the “Virgen de Guadalupe”, plans for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe in December continue in many different parishes.

Particularly in areas with large Latino populations in the Diocese of Scranton, the annual celebration commemorates the appearance of the Virgin Mary to a Mexican Indian peasant – now venerated as Saint Juan Diego – in December 1531 in Tepeyac, near the present-day Mexico.

The appearance of the Blessed Mother is believed to have resulted in millions of conversions to Catholicism, and her message of hope continues to inspire those of Hispanic descent.

In 1946, Pope Pius XII declared Our Lady of Guadalupe Patroness of the Americas.

The feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12 will culminate with a host of celebrations planned throughout the diocese, especially in parishes with large Hispanic/Latino communities.

  • Masks are optional outdoors.
  • Outdoor and indoor seating is available for services and Communion will be served in both locations.
  • Our expectation is that those entering the church will be vaccinated (if vaccination is available to them)
  • Those who choose not to be vaccinated are asked to participate online.
  • People seated inside are asked to maintain social distancing between individuals/households.
  • If we reach the number of seats in the church, ushers will guide you to other seats.
  • We ask that you do not enter if you have any of the following symptoms: fever over 100.4°F or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, stuffy or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, or if you have been in contact in the past 14 days with someone diagnosed or suspected of having COVID-19.

Emirates News Agency – Multiple nationalities, diverse faiths, one faith: how Abu Dhabi adapts to diversity https://obotafumeiro.com/emirates-news-agency-multiple-nationalities-diverse-faiths-one-faith-how-abu-dhabi-adapts-to-diversity/ Sat, 05 Nov 2022 09:24:00 +0000 https://obotafumeiro.com/emirates-news-agency-multiple-nationalities-diverse-faiths-one-faith-how-abu-dhabi-adapts-to-diversity/

By Guendalina Dainelli

ABU DHABI, 5th November, 2022 (WAM) — By mid-morning on a Saturday in September, the parking lot is already packed with cars. It is almost impossible to find a place to park the car near St. Joseph’s Cathedral in Abu Dhabi. At the door, Fr. Darick D’Sousa, the bishop’s secretary, and another priest, Fr. Thomas Sebastian, are waiting for me with a smile.

The cathedral compound is located in the residential area of ​​Al Mushrif, in the heart of Abu Dhabi. “We call this place the precinct of tolerance,” says Father Darick, pointing to the mosque dedicated to Mary the Mother of Jesus and the Coptic Orthodox Church of St. Anthony which stand next to it.

“Not far away are also the churches for the Evangelical community, St. George’s Orthodox Church and St Andrew’s Church for the Anglican community. The Compound, seat of the Vicariate of the South, also includes the bishopric, the Catholic school of Saint-Joseph and the large church of Saint-Thérèse”, he explains.

Many families with children pick up the pace by crossing the alley of palm trees, before the English mass at 10:15 a.m. “We welcome more than 25,000 faithful every weekend, from more than 50 different nationalities,” says Father Sébastien.

“We are always very busy. We celebrate Mass in 16 different languages, from Italian, to French, passing through Korean, without forgetting Arabic for the faithful of Palestine, Syria, Sudan, Lebanon and Egypt. Masses are celebrated according to the Latin, Oriental, Ukrainian, Maronite, Greek-Catholic, Syro-Malabar and Syro-Malankara rites. »

Mass in English takes place in the Church of Santa Teresa, which is larger than the cathedral and can accommodate up to 1200 people. It is equipped with large screens which broadcast songs and liturgical words. Half an hour before the beginning of the office, which will be celebrated by the bishop emeritus Paul Hinder, the place is already teeming with faithful, mainly Indians and Filipinos.

In the meantime, I chat with Josephina. The 23-year-old from Manila attended six o’clock mass almost every day before starting work as a receptionist. In the back row, I meet Julia and Pablo from Spain, parents of three lively children between the ages of four and eight. “It will be difficult to get to the end of the mass, we stay near the exit to be ready to leave when our patience is exhausted”, they tell me.

Indeed, the parish has also thought of the little ones, with two glass baby rooms that welcome them in a protected place during the holidays. “Last year, 3,347 children were baptized in the South Vicariate and nearly 28,600 children were catechists. More than 1,600 adults serve as catechists, they are all volunteers,” says Father Darick introducing me to Barbara, a German who has lived in Abu Dhabi for seven years.

She works full-time in an energy company with her husband, who are both engineers. “We are very busy but have managed to find a space to teach catechism. Beautiful friendships have been made with many families. At the end of catechism classes, before Holy Communion, we usually organize a spiritual retreat for one night in the desert, we camp with tents all together. We light a fire, cook and pray. We do very simple things. And we collect beautiful unforgettable memories.”

After savoring the warmth and celebration of people, belonging to multiple nationalities but united by faith, I go out. As I walk to my car, I wonder about the contrast between stereotypes about the Arab world and the wonderful example of acceptance and tolerance I have just witnessed.

4. Dubrovnik Old Town

The history of Dubrovnik dates back to the 14th century. From that time until the abolition of the slave trade in 1418, it was a free city that governed itself. However, from 1382 to 1804 it remained a tributary of the Ottoman Empire, paying an annual tribute to its sultan. As such, Dubrovnik developed into a thalassocracy comparable to that of Venice and other maritime republics.

The Old Town of Dubrovnik is a beautiful medieval city located against the Adriatic Sea. The old town is best known for its impressive city walls, which were completed in the 16th century and protected the city for centuries to come. Walking along these walls is a great way to get a sense of the city’s history.

You will find many museums, churches and other sites to explore in this area. The Old Town of Dubrovnik is an excellent place to spend your vacation in Croatia. Located on the Dalmatian Coast, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Croatia’s top tourist destinations. If you love old architecture, this city is the perfect place to visit.

It has magnificent seaside sites and many Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance buildings. Dubrovnik enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with hot to dry summers and cool to wet winters. Between October and April, the bora wind blows along the Adriatic coast and causes rain and thunder.

While temperatures can vary by season, daytime highs in summer can reach 28 degrees Celsius, while nighttime lows drop to 23 degrees Celsius. Maximum temperatures in spring and autumn are generally around 20 degrees.
