Our Morning Offering – 16 November – The Memorial of St Gertrude the Great (1256-1302)

An Act of Thanksgiving
By St Gertrude the Great

May my soul bless You,
O Lord God my Creator,
may my soul bless You.
From the very core of my being,
may all Your merciful gifts sing Your praise.
Your generous care for Your daughter,
has been rich in mercy;
indeed it has been immeasurable
and as far as I am able,
I give You thanks.
I praise and glorify,
Your great patience which bore with me
I offer You, most loving Father,
all the sufferings of Your beloved Son,
from that first infant cry
as He lay on the hay in the manger,
until that final movement, when,
bowing His head, with a mighty voice,
Christ gave up His spirit.
I think, as I make this offering,
of all that He underwent,
His needs as a baby,
His dependence as a young child,
the hardships of youth
and the trials of early manhood.
To atone for all my neglect I offer,
most loving Father,
all that Your only-begotten Son did
during His life,
whether in thought, word or deed.
And now, as an act of thanksgiving,
I praise and worship You, Father,
in deepest humility,
for Your most loving kindness and mercy.
Amen

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.
