Our Morning Offering – 22 July – “Dawn Rises”

Our Morning Offering – 22 July – Feast of St Mary of Magdala

Aurora Surgit
“Dawn Rises”
Breviary Hymn

The golden dawn is breaking fast,
And Christ is risen from the tomb,
When, Mary, you arrive in haste
With spices to embalm Him dead.

With breathless speed you reach the spot,
To find an angel full of joy,
Who tells you that the One you seek
Has broken all the bonds of death.

But greater happiness is yours,
Reward of love’s fidelity,
As speaking to the gardener,
Behold! It is your smiling Lord.

You shared the Virgin Mother’s woe,
And watched beside the bitter Cross,
You were the first to hear the news
That Christ had risen from the dead.

O fairest flow’r of Magdala,
Aflame with deepest love for Christ,
Enkindle in our hearts that fire
Of charity that counts no cost.

Lord Jesus, grant us too the grace
To imitate such ardent love,
That we may Your great mercy sing
In joy with Magdalen above.
Amen.aurora sugit dawn rises - breviary hymn for the feat of st mary of magdala 22 july 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 site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings but rejects the Second Vatican Council as heretical and, therefore, all that followed it.
