Monday of the Fourth Week of Advent

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

Daily Meditation:

But now you will be speechless and unable to talk
until the day these things take place,
because you did not believe my words,
which will be fulfilled at their proper time.

In Zechariah’s story we see how “unable to speak” we become
when we do not believe God’s words of promise to us.
Let us trust that nothing is impossible with God.
Today, let’s look at the ways we are being invited
to be open, to surrender, to trust, to love.
Let us become instruments of God’s plan
in ways we might least expect.

My mouth shall be filled with your praise and I will sing your glory! Ps. 71

Closing Prayer:

Oh, Jesus who descended from Jesse,
You are a sign of God’s love.
I feel hopeful and expectant,
filled with a rebirth of joy and love.

I depend on You so much.
You are a rock for my belief
and a sign of God’s love.

Fill me with Your praise!
I want to sing Your glory,
filled with joy
for the message of hope You send.

I don’t always understand
when You are acting on my behalf.
Thank You for the message of hope You send me.
Give me true faith and love
as I celebrate the mystery
of how You came to be with us.

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. "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 bless you 🙏
