Our Morning Offering – 11 October – The memorial of St John XXIII (1881-1963)
OPENING PRAYER AT THE
2ND VATICAN COUNCIL (1962)
By St John XXIII
We stand before You, Holy Spirit,
conscious of our sinfulness,
but aware that we
gather in Your name.
Come to us, remain with us,
and enlighten our hearts.
Give us light and strength
to know Your will,
to make it our own and to
live it in our lives.
Guide us by Your wisdom,
support us by Your power,
for You are God, sharing the
glory of Father and Son.
You desire justice for all:
enable us to uphold the rights of others;
do not allow us to be misled by ignorance
or corrupted by fear or favour.
Unite us to Yourself in the bond of love
and keep us faithful to all that is true.
As we gather in Your name
may we temper justice with love,
so that all our decisions may be pleasing
to You and earn the reward promised to
good and faithful servants.
You live and reign with the Father
and the Son, One God, forever and ever.
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.
