Our Morning Offering – 24 August – Feast of St Bartholomew, Apostle of Christ

Great Saint of God, Bartholomew
Breviary Hymn for the
Feast of St Bartholomew

Great Saint of God, Bartholomew,
Apostle now enthroned above,
Our lowly supplications hear,
Accept our hymn of praise and love.

With tender eyes Christ welcomed you.
Among His Twelve you would have part.
You wondered as He greatly praised
Your deep sincerity of heart.

He whom the prophets had foretold,
Foreshadowed too in many ways,
The great Messiah, come at last,
Smiled back to greet your joyous gaze.

Heart spoke to heart and from that day,
Your faith and love in strength would gain,
For you would follow Him in death
And then for ever with Him reign.

Apostle and close friend of Christ
Who rules beyond the chain of time,
You share in joy your Master’s life,
And help us from that fount sublime.

To Him be glory and all praise
Who by your help and loving prayer,
Will grant that we in heaven’s home
Your everlasting joy may share.
Amen

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.
