Mass of Enrollment

November 2, 2014

The Mass of Enrollment on November 2, 2014, at the Monastery of the Visitation in Tyringham, Massachusetts was a beautiful, well-attended event with our Director, Fr. Seán O’Mannion, presiding over the celebration. The new enrollees numbered 15 and once received into the Association were given a blessed medal to wear to future Guard of Honor events with the following solemn prayer:

Celebrant:  Let us pray together the prayer of commitment
All:  Lord Jesus, whose every action glorifies Your Father, I come today to commit myself to Your service by the offering of my state of duty.  I want to achieve, in my occupation, as in my prayer, this word of St. Paul: “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.”  Therefore, in becoming a member of the Association of the Guard of Honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, I choose (insert hour) from _____ to ____.  Let everything in it be to the glorification of Your Name, a testimony of love, in reparation for myself and for all my brothers and sisters. Amen.
(The Celebrant blesses the medals and prays over the Guards.)
Celebrant:  Receive the sign of the Guard of Honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus for the defense of your soul and your body, so that by the grace of the Heart of Jesus and with the help of Mary, our Mother, you deserve to gain the eternal beatitude.  In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

Please welcome and pray for the 15 new Guards into the Association
