Donations Appeal to my Fellow-Pilgrims and Prayer of Thanksgiving

Donations Appeal to my Fellow-Pilgrims, blessed supporters and friends has been ‘live’ as a personal growth and evangelisation project for well over 2 years now.
I am privileged and blessed by your faithful love and encouragement.
As times grow increasingly tough here in South Africa, the cost of the Internet alone is becoming ever more exorbitant, regardless of all the other costs related to the site and those of staying alive!
Many of you have helped me to continue this ‘mission’ which I fulfil with joy, love and prayer.   I know you are aware of how time-consuming and expensive it is but I would rather do this, along with my personal work in my Parish (in South Africa, the laity do not receive any financial recompense for their Parish work), more than anything else on earth.
My request is for any help you may be able to offer.   No amount is too small.
I offer my daily prayers for you all.
May St Francis, a Beggar for Christ, pray for this appeal.
May the Lord shine His Face upon you and grant you peace.

I offer too, a Prayer of Thanksgiving, for the great love and generosity of dear friends and supporters


who have come to my aid within the last 2 days, with financial support, encouragement and love.

Holy Mass will be offered for you both tomorrow, Friday 13 September.

I express praise and thanks to God, in His providential plan, 
God has blessed each one of us.
Psalm 34 is a perfect Psalm of thanksgiving, praising God for His glorious blessings, love and kindness, that He has blessed us all with.

I will bless the Lord at all times,
his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the Lord,
let the afflicted hear and be glad.
O magnify the Lord with me,
and let us exalt his name together!

I sought the Lord and he answered me,
and delivered me from all my fears.
Look to him and be radiant,
so your faces shall never be ashamed.
This poor man cries and the Lord heard him,
and saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps
around those who fear him and delivers them.
O taste and see that the Lord is good!
Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!
O fear the Lord, you his saints,
for those who fear him have no want!
The young lions suffer want and hunger
but those who seek the Lord, lack no good thing.

Come, O sons, listen to me,
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
What man is there who desires lif,
and covets many days, that he may enjoy good?
Keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from speaking deceit.
Depart from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.

The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous,
and his ears toward their cry.
The face of the Lord is against evildoers,
to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears,
and delivers them out of all their troubles.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted,
and saves the crushed in spirit.

Many are the afflictions of the righteous
but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
He keeps all his bones,
not one of them is broken.
Evil shall slay the wicked
and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
The Lord redeems the life of his servants;
none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.appeal - the power of prayer 12 sept 2019 - psalm 34.jpg



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! 🙏
