Our Morning Offering – 14 March 2018 – Wednesday of the 4th Week of Lent
Prayer in Honour of the Holy Cross
from the Seven Penitential Psalms Devotion
Lord Jesus Christ,
glorious Creator of the World,
splendour of the Father’s glory,
co-eternal with Him and the Holy Spirit,
Who deigned to take flesh of the spotless Virgin
and permitted Your glorious hands to be
fixed to the gibbet of the Cross,
that You might overthrow the gates of hell
and free the human race
from everlasting death,
look down frpm heaven
and have mercy on me,
a wretch borne down by the weight of sin
and polluted by the stains of my many misdeeds,
in Your mercy, do not forsake me,
most loving Jesus
but forgive that which I have sinned.
Hear me, prostrate before Your most
that I may stand before You,
pure and pleasing in Your sight,
Who reigns with the Father,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
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.
