Getting to Know Respect Life Margate

Knights of Columbus, Counsel 16980 ¡We are Pro–Life! San Isidro Church

On November 14, the Knights of Colon, San Isidro Council 16980, made a visit to the RESPECT LIFE center located at 5115 Coconut Creek Pkwy., Margate, FL 33063 whose website of www.pregnancyhelp.me.

Accompanying the Knights, Father Juan Alberto Avilés, blessed the center and its coordinators, predicting success and great fruits in this place. They were attended by three directors: Angela Curatalo, Assistant Director of Respect Life, Rosita Porras, in charge of Ultrasound and Cristina Criado Montoya, Coordinator of the Respect Life Center in Margate. Mrs. Angela Curatalo gave an explanation of all the programs and objectives of RESPECT LIFE. They were surprised to learn of all the free help that is provided to those who come to this center - be they moms, dads vulnerable to abortion, and sometimes, those who have already suffered a voluntary abortion or miscarriage. Services provided include talks, counseling, pregnancy testing, and ultrasounds.

The Knights are so blessed to learn that the ultrasound equipment that has saved so many lives was donated by the Knights of Columbus. Mothers are also given a basket with various items for the necessary care for babies.

For the center, the most important thing is to educate mothers and fathers, always trying to provide company, security and love during pregnancy and if they want, they can continue for up to two more years receiving company in their process as Parents. All these benefits are free, there is no charge to anyone who needs it.

The center is supported by the donations made to it, such as the bottle campaign that is being carried out at the moment in our San Isidro Parish. Everyone can help and take part by volunteering at this center, as there are many things they can help with.

"The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few." (Mt 9:37)

Readings for the First Sunday of Advent

First Reading
Is 63:16b-17, 19b; 64:7

You, LORD, are our father, our redeemer you are named forever. Why do you let us wander, O LORD, from your ways, and harden our hearts so that we fear you not? Return for the sake of your servants, the tribes of your heritage.

Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down, with the mountains quaking before you, while you wrought awesome deeds we could not hope for, such as they had not heard of from of old. No ear has ever heard, no eye ever seen, any God but you doing such deeds for those who wait for him.

Would that you might meet us doing right, that we were mindful of you in our ways! Behold, you are angry, and we are sinful; all of us have become like unclean people, all our good deeds are like polluted rags; we have all withered like leaves, and our guilt carries us away like the wind.

There is none who calls upon your name, who rouses himself to cling to you; for you have hidden your face from us and have delivered us up to our guilt. Yet, O LORD, you are our father; we are the clay and you the po􀆩er: we are all the work of your hands.

Responsorial Psalm
PS 79:2ac, 3b, 15-16, 18-19

R. Lord, make us turn to you; let us see your face and we shall be saved.

O shepherd of Israel, hearken, from your throne upon the cherubim, shine forth. Rouse your power, and come to save us.

R. Lord, make us turn to you; let us see your face and we shall be saved.

Once again, O LORD of hosts, look down from heaven, and see; take care of this vine, and protect what your right hand has planted the son of man whom you yourself made strong.

R. Lord, make us turn to you; let us see your face and we shall be saved.

May your help be with the man of your right hand, with the son of man whom you yourself made strong. Then we will no more withdraw from you; give us new life, and we will call upon your name.

R. Lord, make us turn to you; let us see your face and we shall be saved.

Second Reading
1Cor 1:3-9

Brothers and sisters:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I give thanks to my God always on your account for the grace of God bestowed on you in Christ Jesus, that in him you were enriched in every way, with all discourse and all knowledge, as the testimony to Christ was confirmed among you, so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift as you wait for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ. He will keep you firm to the end, irreproachable on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, and by him you were called to fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Gospel
Mk 13:33-37

Jesus said to his disciples: “Be watchful! Be alert! You do not know when the time will come. It is like a man traveling abroad. He leaves home and places his servants in charge, each with his own work, and orders the gatekeeper to be on the watch. Watch, therefore; you do not know when the Lord of the house is coming, whether in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or in the morning. May he not come suddenly and find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to all: ‘Watch!’”

Prayer of Pope Francis in times of a Pandemic

O Mary, you always brighten our path as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who, at the Cross, took part in Jesus’ pain while remaining steadfast in faith.
O loving Mother, you know what we need, and we are confident you will provide for us as at Cana in Galilee.
Intercede for us with your Son Jesus, the Divine Physician, for those who have fallen ill, for those who are vulnerable, and for those who have died.
Intercede also for those charged with protecting the health and safety of others and for those who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure.
Help us, O Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who took upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows, so as to lead us, through the Cross, to the glory of the Resurrection. Amen.
Under thy protection we seek refuge, O Holy Mother of God.
In our needs, despise not our pettions, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.

Adapted from the prayer of Pope Francis
