Saturday of the First Week of Advent – 9 December

“Let us adore the Lord, the King who is to come.

Daily Meditation:

You shall weep no more.

He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; 
when he hears it, he will answer you.
Isaian 30:19

The prophetic promise is so great.
What our God has done is so complete a victory over sin and death.
In the midst of my day today, can I let myself imagining that salvation
touching and transforming me?
And can I patiently wait for God’s work to take effect in me
– letting him open my heart, day by day?
Imagining “true liberty” today, let us walk in His ways.

Though the Lord may give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction,
yet your Teacher will not hide himself any more but your eyes shall see your Teacher.
And when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left,
your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
Isaiah 30:20-21

Today’s Daily Reflection – Intercessions:
Let us pray to God our Father, who from of old has called
his people to salvation:
Lord, protect your people.

You promised to plant the seed of justice among Your people,
– protect the holiness of your Church.
Lord, teach all men and women to listen to Your word,
– and help believers to persevere in holiness.
Keep us in the love of Your Spirit,
– that we may receive the mercy of Your Son who is to come.
Father most merciful, strengthen us to the last,
– until the day of the coming of Jesus Christ, our Lord.

You received without payment;  give without payment. Matthew 10:8

Closing Prayer:
Lord of Hope,
Dare I? Can I really hope?
From out of the darkness
I sense a dim light ahead,
the light of Your coming into the world.
I so long for the time
when You are no longer hidden from me
and my deepest desire is
to trust in Your warm voice I hear behind me,
guiding me along a hidden path I do not know.
Dry my tears,
heal my wounds
and help me
to wait for the dawning of the dim light ahead,
with a brighter vision
of healing and freedom.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
Amen.saturday of the first week - 9 dec 2017

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. 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 bless you 🙏
