Our Morning Offering – 21 May

O Mary!
By St John XXIII

O Mary, your name has been on my lips
and in my heart from my early infancy.
When I was a child I learned to love you as a Mother,
turn to you in danger and trust your intercession.
You see in my heart the desire to know the truth,
to practice virtue, to be prudent and just, strong and patient, a brother to all.
O Mary, help me to keep to my purpose of living as a faithful disciple of Jesus,
for the building up of the Christian society and the joy of the holy Catholic Church.
I greet you, Mother, morning and evening;
I pray to you as I go on my way;
from you I hope for the inspiration and encouragement
that will enable me to fulfill the sacred promises of my earthly vocation,
give glory to God, and win eternal salvation.
O Mary! Like you in Bethlehem and on Golgotha,
I too wish to stay always close to Jesus.
He is the eternal King of all ages and all peoples.

o mary - st john XXIII


Passionate Catholic. Being 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 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.
