WMOF2018 DÍA 1 (Martes 21 de agosto 2018)

Apertura del Encuentro Mundial de las Familias 2018

Temática – La Alegría del Amor en las Familias es también la Alegría de la Iglesia.

Una Ceremonia de Apertura para el Encuentro Mundial de las Familias 2018 tendrá lugar simultáneamente en todas y cada una de las 26 diócesis de Irlanda en la noche del martes 21 de agosto, siendo la de Dublín la ceremonia principal. 

La Liturgia de Apertura será una completa celebración a de la Oración de la Tarde. Titulada ‘Le chéile le Críost’ (juntos con Cristo), unirá a la Iglesia como familia de familias, dirigiéndonos a todos al maravilloso Encuentro Mundial de las Familias que culminará con la Misa Papal de cierre el sábado 26 de agosto.  Esta tendrá lugar en cada diócesis del país, típicamente en la Iglesia Catedral, y esperamos que formas adaptadas de la celebración sean llevadas a cabo en cada parroquia, ermita y casa familiar.

Empezaremos recordando que caminamos en las huellas de los santos y de aquellos que nos han transmitido a la. Recibimos a Cristo nuestra luz fehaciente, rezamos y cantamos himnos, salmos y cánticos, quemamos incienso y oramos por la humanidad entera ante nuestro Dios y Padre.

Esta plegaria es completamente ecuménica en naturaleza y ya ha sido una sugerencia que todas las Iglesias Cristianas pueden unirse a nosotros en tocar las campanas de las iglesias al iniciar la Oración de la Tarde en toda la isla.

Muchos de nuestros delegados y ponentes internacionales tendrán la oportunidad de unirse para este evento a las comunidades locales alrededor de Irlanda.

Evento: Opening Ceremony of the World Meeting of Families 2018
Lugar: Cathedral of the Annunciation and Saint Nathy, Ballaghaderreen, County Roscommon 
Horario: 8.00pm
Detalles: This special celebration, on the evening of August 21st, will be a gathering of all twenty-three parishes of the diocese - eleven in County Mayo, eleven in County Sligo, and the Cathedral Parish of Ballaghaderreen in County Roscommon. This diocesan event will focus on the life of the Venerable Fr. Patrick Peyton, CSC, a native of our diocese, a priest of the Congregation of Sancta Croce (the Holy Cross), and known with great international renown as 'the Rosary Priest'. The evening in the Cathedral will have as its theme the message Fr. Peyton brought to the world, "The family that prays together, stays together" and "A world at prayer is a world at peace". Fr. Patrick Peyton has recently been declared by the Vatican with the title, 'Venerable', a further step on the path towards Beatification and Canonisation. He was born in the rural parish of Attymass in our diocese, near Ballina, Co. Mayo in 1909 and he died in Los Angeles, USA in 1992 after a remarkable life of dedication and prayer spent in the service of the Gospel, promoting the recitation of the Rosary by families at rallies, attracting hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. The celebration in the Cathedral in Ballaghaderreen on August 21st will include an Entrance Procession into the Cathedral, led by bearers carrying a Statue of Our Lady of Knock, and accompanied by a representative from each parish holding a banner with the parish name of each of those twenty three that form our diocese. Twenty three young people, one from each parish, will also walk in the procession carrying posies of flowers. At the end of the Procession the Statue of Our Lady will be put in a suitably prepared place in the Sanctuary,and the young people will place their flowers around it. The celebration includes the recitation of the Rosary with a scripture reading on each of the mysteries, all led by families from our diocese. And there will be liturgical music and singing throughout.The prayer intentions of this Rosary will have a link with the life of Fr. Peyton and our own family life with reflective thoughts on the importance of Prayer in Fr.Peyton's family home in Attymass: praying for our families; Emigration: praying for family members away from home; Vocation: living our vocation in family; Sickness: praying for family members who are sick. Fr Peyton's worldwide message: praying for the fruits of the World Meeting of Families. A short slideshow has been compiled also showing video footage of interviews with Fr Peyton and his message on Family prayer. Rosary beads will be freely distributed. All are welcome to this special celebration which will hopefully be a memorable moment in marking the World Meeting of Families 2018 in our diocese.
