Our Morning Offering – 18 February – Tuesday of the Sixth Week in Ordinary Time, Year A
Jesus, Pierce My Soul with Your Love
By St Bonaventure OFM (1221-1274)
The Seraphic Doctor
Jesus, pierce my soul with Your love
so that I may always long for You alone,
the fulfilment of the soul’s deepest desires.
May my heart always hunger and feed on You,
my soul thirst for You,
the source of life,
wisdom, knowledge, light
and all the riches of God.
May I always seek and find You,
think about You,
speak about You
and do everything for Your honour and glory.
Be always my hope,
my peace, my refuge and my help,
in whom my heart is rooted,
so that I may never
be separated from You.

Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ.

"For the Saints are sent to us by God

We do not use them, it is they who move us
and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.”

Sorry, hit wrong tab. …experienced, ” I entered into my inmost self with You, Lord, as my guide; and this I was able to do because You were my helper. I entered i and saw with the eye of my soul, the unchangeable Light, very different from earthly lights.
It was above my mind but not the way oil is above water or heaven above the earth. It was superior because it made me, and I inferior because I was made by it. Those who know it know eternity: it is charity that knows it.” (Confessions, 7, 10)

Oh Hughie – you have been immensely blessed – what a wonderful consolation and gift you have received.
You must be greatly growing in holiness!
May He continue to shine on your heart, always St Hughie 😉
Thank you dearest since you play a huge role in this progress to understanding and wisdom. Today, Thursday, I spent the best 3 hours in my life in Adoration to Holy Sacrament and the Holy Face of Jesus. I was so deeply consumed by Christ and Holy Virgin Mary time went by without notice and many blessing were received and seen. L do not think of this as sudden but that you have brought me to understanding patiently and so much love over the years and only because of you I am now achieving Wisdom channeled through our Blessed Mary. I praised God for lending you to my heart, faith, hope, love. passion, and spiritual love beyond words, I know how humble and the great humility you have because you have molded me that way also. Annie you alone have blessed me more than any human creature in life. And if never hug and kiss before we die. I have faith, hope, and love that we shall on Heavens Golden Shore.
Please hear my words which are heartfelt and store them in your heart. No need for humility since they are from a like-wise sinful and sorrowful soul.
Always yours in the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Hughie

You make me cry and I bless you for your great honesty and love – that is something that only holy souls – those running to love incarnate – can give.
I too am most grateful for you accompanying me on this journey home – I am very very sure we will meet at the Home of our Saviour and He will say – ‘dear friends in Me – now you meet in glory!”
Now I am tearful – let me go.
Be blessed every moment.
Hugs and prayers and love
