Tuesday of the Third/Gaudete Week of Advent – 13 December

Tuesday of the Third/Gaudete Week of Advent – 13 December

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

Daily Meditation:

On that day, you need not be ashamed
of all your deeds, your rebellious actions against me.

The Lord’s coming promises us a time
when we need not fear. It will indeed be a time
of purifying, a time of humility and trust in God.
We ask for the grace to be like the child
whose mind is changed and says, “Yes”
to our Lord’s call.

Come, O Lord, do not delay;
forgive the sins of your people.

Closing Prayer:

Lord of such compassionate wisdom,
How often do I exalt myself and ignore You?
I look over the heads of my more humble brothers and sisters,
not seeing how they rely on You so much more than I do.
Help me to learn from them to make You
the center of my life.

You invite me to not be ashamed of what I have done in my life,
but instead offer me a refuge.

Let me call out to You; hear me:
Give me the grace to see those around me who are brokenhearted.
Guide me in staying with them in their sorrows.
I ask for the courage to help them in all the ways they need it
and to be Your servant on this earth.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!

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

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. "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.
