Tuesday of the Second Week of Advent – 12 December

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

Daily Meditation:
Though the grass withers and the flower wilts,
the word of our God stands forever...Isaiah 40:7-8

Our God comes with power to save us.
Each of us can name what it is we long to be saved from.
Today, let’s imagine ourselves freer.
Throughout the day, let’s picture new ways of responding
to challenging relationships, habitual sins,
and other ruts we are in.
As we envision our freedom we experience
how much our God desires to save us.

It is not the will of your heavenly Father
that one of these little ones be lost…Matthew 18:14

Today’s Daily Reflection – Intercessions:
To Jesus Christ our Lord, the light of the world,
let us cry out with joy:
Come Lord Jesus!

Dispel our darkness with the light of Your presence,
– and make us worthy of Your gifts.

Save us, Lord our God,
– that we may praise Your holy name this day.

Enkindle in our hearts the flame of Your love,
– and make us long to be united with You.

You bore our infirmity,
-aid the sick and those who are to die this day.

Closing Prayer:
Almighty God,
I hear it over and over: You are coming to me.
I feel my heart stir in anticipation,
and I know that You are inviting me
to enter more deeply
into the mystery of Your birth.
Help me to feel renewed love settle in my heart,
and to lift my face in joy.
I have been like a lost lamb,
but I hear Your voice calling me
and I feel how deeply You want me to return.
Somehow I know that You rejoice in my desire to find You.
Help me not to be afraid to say out loud, to believe:
Here is God, coming into my life.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
Amen.

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! 🙏
