PRAYER FOR THE INTERCESSION OF MARY by St John Damascene
I salute thee, O Mary!
thou art the hope of Christians:
receive the prayer of a sinner,
who loves thee tenderly,
honours thee in a special manner
and places in thee the whole hope
of his salvation. From thee I have my life.
Thou dost reinstate me in the grace of thy Son:
thou art the sure pledge of my salvation.
I beseech of thee, therefore, to deliver me
from the burden of my sins:
dispel the darkness of my mind,
banish from my heart the love of the world,
repress thou the temptations of mine enemies
and so rule my whole life, that by thy means
and under thy guidance,
I may obtain everlasting happiness in heaven.
Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco
Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ.
This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions.
This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul.
"For the Saints are sent to us by God
as so many sermons.
We do not use them, it is they who move us
and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.”
Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975)
