Our Morning Offering – 2 October – The Memorial of the Holy Guardian Angels
O Most Holy Angel of God
By St Gertrude the Great (1256-1302)
O most holy Angel of God,
appointed by God to be my guardian,
I give you thanks for all the benefits
which you have ever bestowed on me
in body and soul.
I praise and glorify you,
that you condescended to assist me,
with such patient fidelity
and to defend me,
against all the assaults of my enemy.
Blessed be the hour
in which you were assigned me
for my guardian,
my defender and my patron.
In acknowledgement and return,
for all your loving ministries to me,
I offer you the infinitely precious
and noble Heart of Jesus
and firmly purpose
to obey you henceforward
and most faithfully, to serve my God.
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.

Me too – angels, our oldest and best friends. We really need to extend our hearts and love to them.
AND I need those prayers and my love flies to thank and bless you via my darling angel.
You have a way with words – I hope you know how wondrous they are and how they touch hearts Hughie sweetheart!
Just think how the angel came at the very instant of our conception and,I believe, filled our little brains as we developed with everything we need to know, will use, and much more that we may use or will never use. I mean God would never give us a brain and not fill it to the brim, now would he? I know mine is filled with much love for all ( and my love for you is so indescribable that
i will never find eloquent words to explain). Not that I try because this love is so unique that just experiencing is awesome. Well it’s about your bedtime. Sweet dreams, Sweetheart. HH

😊 Those goodnight thoughts will do for tonight instead of last – so rich and glorious – without describing you have and it a wondrous beauty.
I must say I had never thought of such a thing – the angels coming at our birth and God filling those still brand new brains! Marvellous and engenders endless reflection.
Bless you Hughie and God love you!
