Our Morning Offering – 19 November – The First World Day of the Poor

Open the Doors of My Heart 
First World Day of Prayer for the Poor = 19 November 2017
Catholic Relief Services

God of Abraham,
On my television,
On my newsfeed,
On my street,
Everywhere I go
I see Lazarus.
But I also see so many doors.
Doors that I’ve built.
That I have closed.
Doors that society
has hung and locked.
Doors that separate me
from Lazarus.
Lord, teach me to open the
door to Lazarus.
To the poor.
To know them as your children.
To lift them in their distress.
To work to help them find a
fair share of Your bounty.
This World Day of the Poor,
Help us all turn to those outside
our door –
To bless, heal, comfort
And together, from this day
forward, build a world
Where the poor are strangers
to none
And indeed, the very chains of
poverty are broken.



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. 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. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
