Our Morning Offering – 22 November – Friday of the Thirty Third week in Ordinary Time, Year C
O God, send forth Your Holy Spirit
By St Anthony of Padua (1195-1231)
Doctor of the Church
send forth Your Holy Spirit
into my heart
that I may perceive,
into my mind,
that I may remember,
and into my soul,
that I may meditate.
Inspire me to speak
Teach, guide and direct my thoughts
and senses, from beginning to end.
May Your grace,
ever help and correct me,
and may I be strengthened now
with wisdom from on high,
for the sake of Your infinite mercy.
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.

Ah, St Anthony as forgetful as I have always been, I have St Anthony on my prayer list speed-dial. He, as I’ve learned, has a great sense of humor. A couple of examples : I fell asleep one night holding a palm cross and upon waking could not find it in or under my bed. I gave up for awhile said my Turn Around Tony prayer a few hours later I searched again this time I stripped top cover and sheet off bed. And I looked at bottom fitted sheet I saw a little lump underneath the sheet. Sure enough it was my little wooden cross. No way could I have put it under the sheet and then remade my bed. I also decided recently to start using my favorite rosary. I knew that I put in a small wooden container and put in a placed it near the rest of rosary’s.Not there, searched for days, prayed then St Anthony’s help. The very next time I walked by where I put it there it was.

Wonderful story Hughie. Thank you. St Anthony is such a powerful Saint – he is alive to so many – how I wish all our Saints and their power were known.
