Our Morning Offering – 11 July

Bestow upon me, O Gracious Father
Prayer of St Benedict of Nursia

Bestow upon me,
O gracious, O Holy Father
intellect to understand You,
perceptions to perceive You purely,
reason to discern You,
diligence to see You,
wisdom to find You,
a spirit to know You,
a heart to meditate upon You,
ears to hear You,
eyes to behold You,
a tongue to proclaim You,
a conversation pleasing to You,
patience to wait for You
and perseverance to look for You.
Grant me a perfect end –
Your holy Presence.
Grant me a blessed resurrection
and Your recompense –
everlasting life. Amen

bestow upon me o gracious father - prayer of st benedict

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman 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 but rejects the Second Vatican Council as heretical and, therefore, all that followed it.
