Our Morning Offering – 24 July – Wednesday of the Sixteenth week in Ordinary Time, Year C
Lord God, Lift Me Up
By St John of the Cross (1542-1591)
Lord God, my Beloved,
if You are still mindful of my sins
and will not grant my petitions,
let Your will be done,
for that is my chief desire.
Show Your goodness and mercy
and You shall be known for them.
If You are waiting for me
to do good works
and upon their performance
You will grant my petitions,
cause them to be accomplished in me.
Send also, the punishment for my sins,
that is acceptable to You.
For how will I raise myself up to You,
born and bred as I am in misery,
unless You, Lord,
will lift me up
with the Hand that made me?
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.
