Our Morning Offering – 26 January – Third Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A “Sunday of the Word of God”

O Christ, Deign to Kindle our Lamps
By St Columbanus (543-615)
Excerpt from the 12th Spiritual Instruction, 2-3

“O Christ, deign to kindle our lamps,
our most sweet Saviour,
that they may shine continually in Your temple
and receive perpetual light from You,
light perpetual,
so that our darkness may be enlightened
and the world’s darkness
may be driven from us.
Thus enrich my lantern with Your light,
I pray You, Jesus mine,
so that by it’s light there may be disclosed to me,
those holy places of the holy,
which hold You, the eternal priest of the eternal things,
entering there the courts
of that great temple of yours,
that I may constantly see,
observe, desire You only
and loving You alone,
may behold You,
so that before You
my lamp may ever shine and burn.
I beg You, most loving Saviour,
to reveal Yourself to us who beseech You,
so that knowing You,
we may love You only,
love You alone,
desire You alone,
contemplate You alone,
by day and night
and ever hold You in our thoughts.
Amen o Christ deign to kindle our lamps by st columbanus sunday of the word of god 26 jan 2020

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.
