Our Morning Offering – 3 July – Feast of St Thomas Apostle

Qui luce splendes ordinis
Who is the Light of the Glory of his order
Breviary Prayer/Hymn for the Feast of St Thomas

Saint Thomas, whom the Saviour chose
When here on earth, as special friend,
Accept our joyful hymn of praise,
And to our earnest prayer attend.

Your love for Christ made you desire
To die with Him and share His plight;
His love for you gave you a throne
Of glory in His realm of light.

Your tortured love could not believe
The Ten had seen Him, as they said;
But you must touch His hands and feet
To prove Him risen from the dead.

And later when you saw Him too
With joy, His mercy you adored,
Acclaiming Him as truly God,
And worshiping your risen Lord.

As you once grew to know our Lord,
Give us more faith, both strong and firm,
And make our love grow deeper yet
For Jesus whom we have not seen.

All glory be to Christ, our Lord,
Who by your prayer will grant us grace,
When we have blindly walked in faith,
To see the glory of His face.

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.
