VISION: In the spirit of our Patron St. Pius-X, we, the Catholic community of St. Pius-X, Manoa aspire to live the happy and good witnessing of the Gospel through our Faith, Service, and Praise.
The Holy Father designates this new liturgical year as the “Year of Hope.” Christians are not people of despair, but renewal. Hope is always hindered by the hopelessness of the past. Evil and bad memories can burden us in the journey towards renewal. We cannot wear the armor of Jesus if we will not surrender our old burdens. If we are enslaved by sin and evil, we cannot bear arms and face our greatest adversary which is darkness of sin. The reading for this first Sunday of Advent invites us to make the pilgrimage towards the birth of the Messiah, and in order not to stumble on the road, we are advised to leave behind the darkness of sin and to trust solely or exclusively on the armor of light. The dark road is upon us and beyond it is our joy. We must all exclaim Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus. Invoking Jesus as our armor and shield, who can be against us, who will hinder us in our journey towards salvation.

Lord God of peace, hear our Prayer!
We have tried so many times and over so many years to resolve our confilcts by our own powers and by the force of our arms.
How many moments of hostility and darkness have we experienced?
How much blood has been shed?
How many lives have been shattered?
How many hopes have been buried?
But our efforts have been in vain.
Now, Lord come to our aid!
Grant us peace, teach us peace;
guide our steps in the way of peace.
Open our eyes and our hearts,
and give us the courage to say:"Never again war!""With war everything is lost".
Instill in our hearts the courage to take concrete steps to achieve peace.
Lord, God of Abraham, God of the Prophets, God of Love, you created us and you call us to live as brothers and sisters.
Give us the strength daily to be instruments of peace; enable us to see everyone who crosses our path as our brother or sister.
Make us sensitive to the plea of our citizens who entreat us to turn our weapons of war into implements of peace, our trepidation into confident trust, and our quarreling into forgiveness. Keep alive within us the flame of hope, so that with patience and preserverance we may opt for dialogue and reconciliation. In this way may peace triumph at last, and may the words "division" "hatred" and "war" be banished from the heart of every man and woman.
Lord, defuse the violence of our tongues and our hands. Renew our hearts and minds, so that the word which always brings us together will be "brother," and our way of life will always be that of: Shalom, Peace, Salaam!
Dearest St. Joseph, at the word of an angel, you lovingly took Mary into your home. As God’s humble servant, you guided the Holy Family on the road to Bethlehem, welcomed Jesus as your own son
in the shelter of a manger, and fled far from your homeland for the safety of both Mother and Child.
We praise God that as their faithful protector, you never hesitated to sacrifice for those entrusted to
you. May your example inspire us also to welcome, cherish, and safeguard God’s most precious gift
of life. Help us to faithfully commit ourselves to the service and defense of human life —especially
where it is vulnerable or threatened. Obtain for us the grace to do the will of God in all things. Amen.

Written by Bishop Larry Silva
Dear God of all the living, you sent your Son Jesus to heal us from illness and sin. We turn to his healing power in this time of anxiety over the pandemic of this potentially deadly virus.
St. Damien and St. Marianne Cope dedicated their lives to the service of those who had an infectious disease. St. Marianne Cope said, “I am not afraid of any disease,” because she was confident in your power to save.
At the same time, she took prudent precautions of hygiene to assure that she and her Sisters would not be infected.
Let us learn from this example to put our trust in you to save us from the ravages of disease and to take prudent measures to prevent its spread. Guide us to know when to isolate ourselves from the possibility of infection, but never let anyone be left without the care and concern of others in the community.
As our Diocese of Honolulu has been dedicated to the Divine Mercy, we pray with confidence,
I trust in you!
Pray for us!
Pray for us!
