Our Morning Offering – 13 August – Tuesday of the Nineteenth week in Ordinary Time, Year C and the Memorial of St John Berchmans (1599-1621)
An Act of Consecration
to the Blessed Virgin Mary
By St John Berchmans (1599-1621)
Mother of God and Virgin,
I choose you this day
for my queen, patron and advocate
and firmly resolve and purpose
never to abandon you,
never to say or do anything against you,
nor to permit that aught be done
by others to dishonour you.
Receive me, then, I beg you,
as thy perpetual servant,
assist me in all my actions
and do not abandon me
at the hour of my death.
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.
