Our Morning Offering – 14 July

Our Morning Offering – 14 July – Saturday of the 14th Week in Ordinary Time, Year B

Sweet Light!
By St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (1891-1942)

Who are You,
sweet Light, that fills me
And illumines
the darkness of my heart?
You lead me like a mother’s hand,
And should You let go of me,
I would not know
how to take another step.
You are the space
That embraces my being
and buries it in Yourself.
Away from You,
it sinks into the abyss
Of nothingness,
from which You raised it to the light.
You, nearer to me than I to myself
And more interior
than my most interior
And still impalpable
and intangible
And beyond any name,
Holy Spirit eternal love!
Amensweet light - who are you sweet light that fills me - prayer of st teresa benedicta - 14 july 2018

Passionate Catholic. 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. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! πŸ™
