Our Morning Offering – 11 June -“Month of the Sacred Heart” – Thursday of the Tenth Week in Ordinary Time, Year A

Unite Me to Your Sacred Heart
By Blessed Angela Truszkowska (1825-1899)

My Lord, You bid us to suffer,
therefore, my poor soul desires it.
I want to suffer, O Jesus but with You,
to suffer but for the love of You,
to suffer but in silence and in solitude,
so that no-one would know that I suffer, only You,
so that only You would hear the groanings of my soul
and only You would see my tears.
Ah! Teach me, O Lord,
to suffer in that way,
teach me to suffer, without seeking any consolation,
to suffer, without craving the sympathy of creatures,
to suffer, without even expecting the eternal joys of heaven.
Teach me to suffer,
not because suffering is the source of merit and glory
but because, it unites us to You and makes our hearts
like unto your Sacred Heart.

(The text was written on sheets of paper bound together with two works of St Alphonsus Ligouri. Mother Angela gave this book to Sr Anna Bielska as a gift on the first anniversary of her profession, 8 December 1861.)

Passionate Catholic. Being a 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, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, 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.
