Our Morning Offering – 9 September

Veni Creator
by Czeslaw Milosz

Come, Holy Spirit
bending or not bending the grasses,
appearing or not above our heads
in a tongue of flame, at hay harvest
or when they plough in the orchards
or when snow covers
crippled firs in the Sierra Nevada.
I am only a man:
I need visible signs.
I tire easily, building the stairway of abstraction.
Many a time I asked,
you know it well, that the statue in church
lift its hand, only once, just once, for me.
But I understand that signs must be human,
therefore, call one person,
anywhere on earth, – not me –
after all I have some decency – and allow me,
when I look at that person,
to marvel at YOU!

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.
