Our Morning Offering – 17 February – Psalm 121 By Fr Daniel Berrigan

Our Morning Offering – 17 February – Monday of the Sixth week in Ordinary Time, Year A

The Pharisees came forward and began to argue with Jesus, seeking from him a sign from heaven to test him.
He sighed from the depth of his spirit and said, “Why does this generation seek a sign? Amen, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.”
Then he left them, got into the boat again and went off to the other shore. – Today’s Gospel: Mark 8:11-13

Psalm 121
By Fr Daniel Berrigan SJ (1921–2016)

I lift my eyes to You
my Help, my Hope

the heavens (who could imagine)
the earth (only our Lord)
the infinite starry spaces
the world’s teeming breath

All this. I lift my eyes
– upstart, delighted –
and I praise.

Fr Daniel Joseph Berrigan SJ was an American Jesuit priest, anti-war activist, Christian pacifist, playwright, poet and author.psalm 121 fr daniel berigan i lift up my eyes to you my help my hope 17 feb 2020

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.
