Thursday of the Third/Gaudete Week of Advent – 15 December 2016

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

Daily Meditation:

“My love shall never leave you.
“Raise a glad cry …
“Break forth in jubilant song …
“Fear not …”

Our God loves us – with “enduring love.”
Our God is in a relationship with us that is faithful, forgiving, healing.
Let us accept it, surrender to its power and feel the joy
and freedom growing in our hearts.

I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me. Ps. 30

Closing Prayer:
God of salvation,
You promise us strength and courage in our lives
if only I ask.
You forgive me and touch me with Your enduring love.

My past life does not matter for

I have begged for Your pity and You have forgiven me

and You love me with such tenderness.

As I ponder the blessings of the days ahead,
and am so grateful for Your forgiveness,
I ask to feel the jubilation and song
break out in my life today.

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.
