Mark 5:41mark 5 41 i say to you arise

“May Jesus touch us, too
and at once we shall walk.
We may well be paralysed,
our deeds may be evil
and we may be unable to walk,
we may be lying on the bed of our sins…
but if Jesus touches us,
then we shall immediately be healed.
Peter’s mother-in-law was suffering with fever –
Jesus touched her hand
and she arose
and immediately served Him (Mk 1:31)…”

“Lord, I beseech you,
touch our hands as we, too, lie prostrate.
Make us rise from our bed of sins and enable us to walk.
And when we have walked, make them give us something to eat.
We cannot eat when we are lying down –
unless we are standing,
we shall not be able to receive the Body of Christ.”

Passionate Catholic. Being 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 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 site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
