Our Morning Offering – 15 May – My Lady, My Refuge and my Strength

Our Morning Offering – 15 May – “Mary’s Month” – Friday of the Fifth Week of Easter

My Lady, My Refuge and my Strength
By St Germanus (c 634- c 733)
Patriarch of Constantinople

My refuge and my strength
My Lady,
my refuge, life and help,
my armour and my boast,
my hope and my strength,
grant that I may enjoy
the ineffable, inconceivable gifts of your Son,
your God and our God,
in the heavenly kingdom.
For I know surely
that you have power to do as you will,
since you are Mother of the most High.
Therefore, Lady most pure,
I beg you
that I may not be disappointed in my expectations
but may obtain them, O Spouse of God,
who bore Him, who is the expectation of all,
Our lord Jesus Christ,
true God and master of all things,
visible and invisible,
to whom belongs all glory, honour and respect,
now and always and through endless ages.
Amenmy lady my refuge and my strength st germanus of constantinople 15 may 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.

  1. Buenas tardes. Quiero agradecer por tan bella oración a la Virgen María. Mi refugio y mi fuerza. Nuestra madre Santísima. Siempre con nosotros. Me lleno de dicha leer tan lindas palabras para nuestra Madre. Les pido una disculpa Leo el Inglés y lo entiendo no al 100%, al escucharlo lo entiendo poco voy hilando las palabras, pero escribirlo se me dificulta un poco más. Se me haría fácil usar un traductor pero no sería leal. Pero me gusta hacer el intento de leer las lecturas que envían. Muy hermosas. Gracias por dedicar su tiempo. Para enviarlas. Mis bendiciones para ustedes y cuidense mucho.Dejo en sus oraciones por favor a mi familia Flores Escobedo, a mis hijas para acercarla más a Dios, Nuestro Padre Jesús y a Nuestra Madre María. Y a mi esposo que cuando se reactiven las actividades encuentre trabajo. Antes de la pandemia había hecho examen para un trabajo y quedo pendiente por lo de la pandemia si lo tomaban en cuenta para su contrato de trabajo que tanto necesitamos para cubrir las necesidades. Y bendiciones para mis ventas. Muchas gracias por sus atenciones y cuidense mucho. Dios los siga bendiciendo. Para seguir llevándonos a la lectura la meditación y la oración.

    Mis saludos más cordiales: María Escobedo.

    1. Thank you Maria!
      I am so blessed to have you here with me and thankful that you have found love and solace in the prayers and meditations.
      I hope you can understand my words – I can understand some of yours – not too well but well enough to let you know that I will be adding your whole family to my prayers every single day. That your husband may find a good job, your daughters draw closer to the Church and to our holy God and you too, that you also may find or be successful in the job you applied for.
      I will be praying for you in our daily Rosary too and I would beg you – all your family – with the daughters to set a time every single day and pray the Rosary for all these urgent needs.
      This whole situation the world is in is causing such immense suffering – but keep trusting our Lord and keep your eyes fixed on Him!
      My love to you and all the family.
      Be strong in our Holy Mother and Jesus Christ our Lord – “I will not leave you orphans!”
