Our Morning Offering – 14 February – Ash Wednesday 2018

You alone are my All and Every Good
By Thomas à Kempis

O Lord, my God,
You are my all and every good.
And what am I, that I should presume to address You?
I am the poorest of Your servants and a wretched worm,
far more poor and worthless, than I can ever realise or express.
Yet, Lord, remember that I am nothing,
I have nothing
and can do nothing.
You alone are good, just and holy,
You can do all things, fill all things, bestow all things,
leaving only the wicked empty-handed.
Remember Your mercies, Lord
and fill my heart with Your grace,
since it is Your will, that none of Your works, should be worthless.
How can I endure this life of sorrows,
unless You strengthen me with Your mercy and grace?
Do not turn Your face from me;
do not delay Your coming,
nor withdraw Your consolation form me,
lest my soul become like a waterless desert.
Teach me, O Lord, to do Your will;
teach me to live worthily and humbly in Your sight;
for You are my wisdom, who know me truly
and who knew me before the world was made
and before I had my being.
Amenyou alone are my all and every good - st thomas a kempis - 14 feb 2018

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. 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 is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
