Our Morning Offering – 18 November -Jesus, my True Friend

Our Morning Offering – 18 November – Monday of the Thirty Third week in Ordinary Time, Year C

Jesus, my True Friend
By St Claude de la Colombiere S.J. (1641-1682)

You always listen kindly to me.
You have the secret to soften my troubles
and to renew my hope without ceasing.
All alone, You know the depths of my heart.
As my faithful friend,
You are my strong support,
” He who finds You found his Treasury ”.
Always and everywhere, You are with me.
In Your immense tenderness,
You come to my heart
to make Your home.
Reveal the wonder of Your Divine Friendship
to the desperate,
to all overwhelmed with suffering.
Yes, I am so convinced
that You watch over those who hope in You
and that we cannot lose anything
when we wait for You, in all things.
I resolve to live,
now and in the future
without any worry.
For I will discharge all my worries
on You, since You never desert those
who trust, in the love of Your Heart
Amen

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site 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 is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.

  1. Lovely. However, I am stuck on St Elizabeth of the Trinity’s Beautiful Surrender I read it aloud, contemplate, pray, and conclude each morning that I share her Passion.
