The Oratory is hosting a new spiritual classic book study beginning Feb. 5 on Wednesdays, 7:30- 8:30PM in the Oratory Conference Room. The “Conferences” of St. John Cassian could be, and was, considered the advanced text on living the Christian life. This book, though written in the 4th century, remains refreshing and stirring: the way is not simple or quick, but it does point to a fuller life. Join us in “the quest to follow God in purity of heart.” firstname.lastname@example.org for information or Podcast at www.philokalia.podbean.com. Books will be available for $35 at the meeting.

Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, and the bishops of the United States have asked Catholics around the world to unite in prayer on Saturday, September 7, for peace in Syria. Similarly, every year, our bishops have joined with the Catholics of this country in prayer on September 11 for peace and authentic patriotism. Consider making a visit to adoration on or before these dates to add your prayers to the millions of prayers around the world.
Pope Francis has exhorted ‘the international community to make every effort to promote clear proposals for peace, … a peace based on dialogue and negotiation, for the good of the entire Syrian people.’

The Vigil: 8:00pm to 11:00pm (see flier for more details)
Confession: 7:00pm to 7:45pm
“I’ve come to set the world on fire and how I wish it were already blazing” (Luke 12:49). Our Lord desires to draw us close to His Sacred Heart and set us on fire for love of Him and the Kingdom. With Mary, whose Immaculate Heart loved our Lord so completely and tenderly, we seek to prepare a place for him within our hearts so that we might receive Him in purity and humility. Like St. Philip Neri, we pray that Our Lord will send his Holy Spirit upon us so that our hearts might burn for love of Him and those He has called us to serve.
Join us every First Friday of the month for a three hour prayer vigil before the Blessed Sacrament (8:00pm-11:00pm) in devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary and to St. Philip Neri, whose heart burned for love of God and neighbor.
Each hour will consist of a Litany, an Act of Reparation, a Brief Reflection on the particular theme of the Vigil, a Hymn, Silent Prayer, and an Act of Consecration. Veneration of the Relic of St. Philip Neri will take place during the third hour.
