Saturday of the Second Week of Advent – 16 December

Saturday of the Second Week of Advent – 16 December
“Let us adore the Lord, the King who is to come.”

Daily Meditation:
Lord, make us turn to you; let us see your face and we shall be saved.

God seems to like to prepare the way for our salvation.
We can experience prophets, even Elijah’s on fire with God’s word.
What are the messages, the stirrings, the signs of fire
that are preparing the way for the Lord to enter my life these days?
Can we make friends with these preparations for the Lord?

Blessed is he who shall have seen you
and who falls asleep in your friendship...Sirach 48:11

Today’s Daily Reflection – Intercessions:
To Jesus Christ, our Redeemer, who will come again in
glory with great power, let us make our humble prayer:
Come, Lord Jesus!

Lord Jesus, You will come with great power,
– look on our lowliness and make us worthy of Your gifts.

You came to be the good news for mankind,
– may we always proclaim Your saving work.

You are worthy of praises, for You have life and rule all
things,
– help us to wait in joyful hope for the coming of Your
glory.

We long for the grace of Your coming,
– console us with the gift of Your own divine life.

Closing Prayer:
Jesus,
in the darkness of these Advent nights
let me be guided by the light of Your word.
Give me the humility to be led by You
and the wisdom to learn from You.
I feel Your light in my life
and in the world.
I am grateful for the Saviour who awaits us,
and eagerly await the time of rejoicing.
Let me look forward in hope
and turn to You with great trust,
knowing You will guide my steps
along the unknown path of this day.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
Amen.

This site 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.
