Our Morning Offering – 26 January – Jesus, Like a Mother By Jesus St Anselm

Our Morning Offering – 26 January

Jesus, Like a Mother
By St Anselm OSB (1033-1109)
Doctor magnificus (Magnificent Doctor)
Doctor Marianus (Marian Doctor)

Jesus, like a mother
You gather Your people to Yourself.
You are gentle with us,
as a mother with her children.
Often you weep over our sins and our pride,
tenderly You draw us, from hatred and judgement.
You comfort us in sorrow and bind up our wounds,
in sickness You nurse us
and with pure milk You feed us.
Jesus, by Your dying, we are born to new life;
by Your anguish and labour, we come forth in joy.
Despair turns to hope through Your sweet goodness;
through Your gentleness, we find comfort in fear.
Your warmth, gives life to the dead,
Your touch, makes sinners righteous.
Lord Jesus, in Your mercy, heal us;
in Your love and tenderness, remake us.
In Your compassion, bring grace and forgiveness.
For the beauty of heaven, may Your love prepare us.


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.
