What usefulness does the worker obtain with his effort?

I have seen the task that God has imposed on men so that they occupy themselves with it. He has made all things appropriate for their time, but He also put in the hearts of men the sense of past and future time, without men being able to discover the work that God makes from the beginning to the end.

I understood that the only good thing for man is to rejoice and look for well-being in life. After all, that man eat and drink and enjoy well-being with his effort is a gift of God.

I have recognized that all God does lasts forever: nothing needs to be added to it or removed from it, and God works this way so that one has fear (awe) in His presence. That which is, already was, and that which is to be, already existed, and God goes in search of what is fleeting.

I have seen something more under the sun: instead of the righteous, evil and instead of justice, iniquity. I then said to myself: God will judge the just and the wicked, because there is a time for each thing and for each action. I thought regarding men: if God tests them, it is so that they may see whether they are not distinguisable from animals.

For this, I realized that the only good thing for man is to rejoice in his works, since this is his part: Who, in effect, will take him to see what there is to be after him?

Ecclesiastes 3: 9-18, 22

Work, Seeking God Alone
From writings by Saint Don Orione (1872-1940)

Yesterday, when I was in the room of a good priest my eyes fell on these words: God alone! My look at that moment was full of weariness and pain, and my mind was thinking about so many other days like yesterday, full of anxiety, and above the whirl of so much anguish, and above the confused sound of so many sighs, I seemed to hear the amiable and good voice of my Angel: God alone! disconsolate soul, God alone!

Above a window there was a cyclamen plant, further on was a corridor with a few priests piously meditating, and further still a Crucifix, a dear and venerable Crucifix which reminded me of fine, unforgettable years, and with my eyes filled with tears I ended up at the feet of the Lord. And my soul seemed to be lifted up, and a peaceful, comforting voice seemed to come down from That Pierced Heart, and it invited me to come up and confide my sorrows to God and to pray.

What a sweet silence, full of peace... and in the silence God alone! I went on repeating to myself God alone! And I seemed to feel a calm, beneficial atmosphere around my soul!

And then I saw behind me the reason for my present difficulties: I saw that instead of trying to please God alone in my work, for years I had been begging praise from men, and I was continually seeking anxiously for someone to see, appreciate and applaud me; and I came to this conclusion: I must start a new life right here: to work, seeking God alone!

To work beneath the gaze of God, of God alone!

Oh! yes, a whole new rule of life is in these words, all that is needed for the Work of Divine Providence is here: the gaze of God!

It is necessary to restart a new life, and it must be restarted from here: to work, seeking God alone! To work beneath the gaze of God, of God alone!

The gaze of God is like dew which strengthens, like a shining beam of light which fertilizes and expands: so, let us work without great noise and without respite; let us work in the sight of God, of God alone.

The human gaze is a scorching ray which turns colors pale, even the most resistant ones: in our case, it would be like an icy breath of wind which folds, bends and ruins the still tender stalk of this poor little plant.

Every action which is done to attract attention and to be seen, loses its freshness in the Lord´s eyes: it is like a flower that has passed through many hands and is hardly presentable.

O poor Work of Divine Providence, be the desert flower which grows, opens and blooms because God has told it to do so, and which is not upset if a passing bird notices it, or if the gusting wind disperses its scarcely formed leaves.

For our soul and for the whole of our life: God alone! God alone!

Solitude without God will rest the spirit, but embitter the heart: it is a fragrant, flower-covered plateau, but has nothing except a pale, lifeless sun.

Solitude with God, on the contrary, is a sweet, warm atmosphere which alone knows how to cure torments of the heart!

God alone! Oh! how useful and consoling it is to have only the will of God for a witness! God alone, is sanctity at its highest level! God alone, is the best founded security of one day entering Heaven. God alone, my sons, God alone!

Homily of John Paul II, during the Cannonization of Saint Lugi Orione, FDP, Sixth Sunday of Easter, May 16, 2004

"Men who have risked their lives for the sake of Our Lord Jesus Christ" (Acts 15: 26).

These words taken from the Acts of the Apostles can be well-applied to Saint Luigi Orione, a man who gave himself entirely for the cause of Christ and His Kingdom.

Physical and moral sufferings, fatigue, difficulty, misunderstandings and all kinds of obstacles characterized his apostolic ministry.

"Christ, the Church, souls", he would say, "are loved and served on the cross and through crucifixion or they are not loved and served at all" (Writings, 68, 81).

The heart of this strategy of charity was "without limits because it was opened wide by the Charity of Christ" (ibid., 102, 32).

Passion for Christ was the soul of his bold life, the interior thrust of an altruism without reservations, the always fresh source of an indestructible hope.

This humble son of a man who repaired roads proclaimed that "only charity will save the world" (ibid., 62, 13), and to everyone he would often say that "perfect joy can only be found in perfect dedication of oneself to God and man, and to all mankind" (ibid.).

"To Restore Everything in Christ"

The Sons of Divine Providence is a Roman Catholic religious congregation founded in Italy in 1893 by Saint Luigi Orione. The Congregation takes its inspiration from its founder whose motto was: "Instaurare omnia in Christo" (to restore everything in Christ). Saint Luigi Orione is remembered for his commitment to social justice and the service of those in need, through the "Do good to all; harm no one", a service guided and inspired by the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Don Orione began his work with orphans and street children in the city of Tortona in north-west Italy while he was still student. He was a man of enormous energy and enterprise and by the time of his death in 1940 Don Orione and his followers had established services for the care of elderly, disabled and disadvantaged people. Today about a thousand priests and brothers of the Congregation are working in thirty two countries around the world providing services in the charisma of Saint Luigi Orione.

A Shrine dedicated to the Madonna under the title of Queen of the Universe at the top of Orient Heights overlooking Boston

One of the most recognizable landmarks of East Boston is the 35-foot (11 m)-high statue of the Madonna. Atop Orient Heights, it is the National Headquarters for the Don Orione Order. Constructed in 1956, the Statue is a full-size replica of the original statue at the Don Orione Center in the Montemario District of Rome, Italy. It was designed by Jewish-Italian sculptor Arrigo Minerbi, who wanted to show his gratitude to the Catholic Church for having shielded him and his family from the Nazis during World War II. Across the street from the Shrine is the Don Orione Home, a nursing home founded by the Don Orione priests. The chapel was designed by Italian architect Mario Bacciocchi.

The Shrines were built to fulfill the desires of Don Orione that beside every work of charity there would be a work of faith.

 
 
The Madonna Shrine at the top of Monte Mario Hill overlooking Rome

Of the thousands of statues, paintings and mosaics of the Madonna in Rome, perhaps the one which is most loved by the Romans is the statue which is the most visible. This visibility is due to two factors: the statue’s size and its location. The statue itself, made of gold plated bronze and copper, weighs over seven and a half tons and is nine meters high; in addition, it stands on a base which is nineteen meters high. Furthermore, Its location is at the top of Monte Mario, the highest point in the city at 132 meters. It was erected on April 4, 1953 as an ex-voto, a votive offering requested by the signatures of over one million Romans to thank the Madonna for sparing the city of Rome during WWII. The Shrine is on the grounds of the Don Orione rehabilitation center and school.

Without Prayer nothing good is done. God’s works are done with our hands joined, and on our knees.
Even when we run, we must remain spiritually kneeling before Him. *

OUR FATHER

Our Father, Who Art In Heaven
Hallowed Be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy Will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
Liberate us from all temptation[*]
And deliver us from all evil. Amen



[*] Liberate us is in keeping with the original Latin text.
       God usually does not "lead us" to temptation
       (unless we are tested),
       but gives us the grace to overcome and/or resist it
X
HAIL MARY

Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art though among women,
And blessed is the fruit
Of thy womb, Jesus.
 
Holy Mary, Mary of God
Pray for us sinners
Now, and in the hour
Of our death. Amen

APOSTLE'S CREED

I believe in God, the Father Almighty Creator of Heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ, His Only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the
[work and grace of the] Holy Ghost,[*]
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into the Dead.[**]
On the third day, He rose again;
He ascended into Heaven,
And sits at the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge
the living and the dead.
 
I believe in the Holy Ghost,[*]
The Holy Catholic Church,
The communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins.
The resurrection of the body,
And life everlasting. Amen


[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.
[**] the Dead: "inferi", the underworld or the dead in Latin.
X
GLORIA

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost[*],
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen

[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.

DE PROFUNDIS

Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord:
Lord, hear my voice.
Let Thine ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplication.

If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities:
Lord, who shall abide it.
For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness:
and because of Thy law,
I have waited for Thee, O Lord.

My soul hath waited on His word:
my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning-watch even until night,
let Israel hope in the Lord.

For with the Lord there is mercy:
and with Him plenteous redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel
from all her iniquities.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost[*],
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen

[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.

DE PROFUNDIS

Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord:
Lord, hear my voice.
Let Thine ears be attentive to the voice
of my supplication.

If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities:
Lord, who shall abide it.
For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness:
and because of Thy law,
I have waited for Thee, O Lord.

My soul hath waited on His word:
my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning-watch even until night,
let Israel hope in the Lord.

For with the Lord there is mercy:
and with Him plenteous redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel
from all his iniquities.

V. Eternal rest give unto them, O Lord.
R. And let perpetual light shine upon them.
V. From the gate of hell.
R. Deliver their souls, O Lord.
V. May then rest in peace.
R. Amen.
V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.
V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with Thy Spirit.

(50 days indulgence to all who pray the De Profundis with V. and R.
"Requiem aeternam" (Eternal Rest) three times a day.
Pope Leo XIII, February 3, 1888)


Let us pray:
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all
the faithful, we beseech Thee to grant
to the souls of Thy servants the remission
of their sins, so that by our prayers
they may obtain pardon for which they long.
O Lord, who lives and reigns,
world without end. Amen

May they rest in peace. Amen

PADRE NUESTRO

Padre Nuestro,
que estas en los Cielos
Santificado sea Tu Nombre;
Venga a nosotros tu Reino;
Hágase Tu Voluntad
en la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día;
Perdona nuestras ofensas,
Como también nosotros
perdonamos a los que nos ofenden,
No nos dejes caer en la tentación,
y líbranos del mal. Amén

Dios te salve, María,
llena eres de gracia;
El Señor es Contigo;
Bendita Tú eres
entre todas las mujeres,
Y bendito es el fruto
De tu vientre, Jesús.

Ahora y en la hora
De nuestra muerte.

CREDO

Creo en Dios, Padre Todopoderoso,
Creador del cielo y de la tierra.
Creo en Jesucristo,
Su único Hijo, Nuestro Señor,
Que fue concebido por obra
y gracia del Espíritu Santo,
Nació de la Santa María Virgen;
Padeció bajo el poder de Poncio Pilato,
Fue crucificado, muerto y sepultado,
Descendió a los infiernos,
Al tercer día resucitó de entre los muertos,
Subió a los cielos
Y está sentado a la derecha de Dios,
Padre Todopoderoso.
Desde allí ha de venir a juzgar
a los vivos y a los muertos.

Creo en el Espíritu Santo,
La Santa Iglesia Católica,
La comunión de los santos,
El perdón de los pecados,
La resurrección de la carne
Y la vida eterna. Amén

DE PROFUNDIS

Desde lo hondo a Ti grito, Señor; Señor,
escucha mi voz;
Estén Tus oidos atentos
a la voz de mi súplica.

Si llevas cuenta de los delitos, Señor,
¿quién podrá resistir?
Pero de ti procede el perdón,
y así infundes respeto.
Mi alma espera en el Señor.

Espera en su palabra;
mi alma aguarda al Señor,
más que el centinela la aurora.
Aguarda Israel al Señor.

Como el centinela la aurora;
porque del Señor viene la misericordia.
la redención copiosa;
y Él redimirá a Israel de todos sus delitos.

Gloria al Padre, al Hijo y al
Espíritu Santo,
como es desde el principio,
es ahora y será por los siglos de los siglos.
Amén
