Our Morning Offering – 5 April
Prayer for Proper Affections Toward God
By St Vincent Ferrer
Good Jesus, let me be penetrated with love
to the very marrow of my bones,
with fear and respect toward Thee;
let me burn with zeal for Thy honour,
so that I may resent terribly all the outrages
committed against Thee, especially those
of which I myself have been guilty.
Grant further, O my God, that I may adore
and acknowledge Thee humbly as my Creator
and that, penetrated with gratitude
for all Thy benefits,
I may never cease to render Thee thanks.
Grant that I may bless Thee in all things,
praise and glorify Thee with a heart full of joy
and gladness, and that,
obeying Thee with docility
in every respect, I may one day,
despite my ingratitude and unworthiness,
be seated at Thy table together with Thy holy angels
and apostles to enjoy ineffable delights. Amen
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.
