Our Morning Offering – 21 February

(Excerpt 2 from the Universal Prayer
attributed to Pope Clement XI)

I pray to You, Lord,
enlighten my understanding,
strengthen my will,
make clean my heart,
make holy my inward being.
Give me sorrow for my past sins
and let me not fall into temptation.
Help me to rise above my natural weaknesses,
let me grow stronger in all that is good and true.
Grant me, O good and loving God,
to love You as You deserve,
to turn away from all that is self-centred.
Let me seek Your Kingdom above all,
let me live as a pilgrim in this world,
give me right respect for all who have claim on me.
Give me a tender care for any who depend on me.
Let me cherish my friends
and let me forgive my enemies from my heart.
Grant me all this, my heavenly Father
for I give You all of myself
through Christ our Lord, 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.
