Our Morning Offering – 10 March – The First Sunday of Lent

Prayer Before Holy Communion
By St Anselm (1033-1109)
Doctor of the Church

O Lord Jesus Christ,
Son of the living God,
who according to the will of the Father
and with the co-operation of the Holy Spirit,
has by Your death given life to the world,
I adore and revere this Your Holy Body
and this Your Holy Blood,
which was given over
and poured forth for the many,
unto remission of sins.
O merciful Lord,
I beg of Your mercy,
that through the power of this Sacrament,
You will make me one of that many.
Through faith and love, make me feel
the power of these Sacraments,
so I may experience their saving power.
Absolve and free from all sin
and punishment of sin, Your servants,
Your handmaidens, myself,
all who confessed their sins to me,
those whom I have promised
or am obliged to pray for
and so too those who themselves hope
or beg to be helped by my prayers with You.
Make our Church rejoice
in Your constant protection and consolation.

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. "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 bless you 🙏
