Our Morning Offering – 28 March – Wednesday of Holy Week 2018

Act of Love
of Father Jean-Baptiste Muard O.S.B. (1809-1854)

Desiring to love Thee, my God,
as much as is possible to a feeble creature,
I desire that all my thoughts,
all my wishes, all my sentiments,
all my aspirations, all the pulsations of my heart,
all my movements, be so many acts of love.
I desire that every character I trace in writing,
every word, every letter I read,
be to me so many acts of love.
Would that I could offer Thee each day
as many acts of most fervent love
as there are grains of sand on the sea-shore,
leaves on the trees of the forest,
atoms in the air and created things
and multiply them to infinity.
I offer Thee, my God,
in compensation for my weakness,
all the acts of love of all the angels
and all the saints in heaven and earth;
all the acts of love of the most holy Virgin
and, above all, the acts of love
for Thee of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Alas ! my God, that I cannot love Thee
as Thou deservest to be loved;
give me, then, the heart of a Seraph or, rather,
fill my heart with the love of all the Seraphim,
the love of all the Saints, the love of all hearts,
and increase it ever more and more
that I may love Thee as much as I desire to love Thee.

Passionate Catholic. Being 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 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.
