Wednesday of the Second Week of Advent – 7 December

“Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall declare your praise.”

Daily Meditation:
They that hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

Our Advent preparation is about growing in confidence
that our God can indeed save us.
So often our struggles make us very weary and tired.
When we really “get it” that the One who made us
truly desires to set us free,
we really begin longing at a new level
to know what it is to be restored to a new vitality.

They will soar as with eagles’ wings;
They will run and not grow weary,
walk and not grow faint.

Closing Prayer:
Loving and powerful God,
Some days I can only be in awe of Your power and love.
You never tire of supporting me.
I constantly ask for help
knowing You will always be there.

From some place deep in my soul,
I hear You calling me by name
and I prepare with a joyful heart for Your coming.

Grant me the gift of hope, patience and waiting in these Advent days
I want the focus of my waiting to be on You.
I want to praise and glorify You with my life.
Let me live my gratitude to You, rejoicing!

May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.




Passionate Catholic. 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) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
