Father, In Your Goodness
By St Benedict of Nursia (480-547)

Father, in Your goodness
grant me the intellect, to comprehend You,
the perception, to discern You,
and the reason, to appreciate You.
In Your kindness
endow me with the diligence, to look for You,
the wisdom, to discover You
and the spirit, to apprehend You.
In Your graciousness
bestow on me a heart, to contemplate You,
ears to hear You,
eyes to see You,
and a tongue, to speak of You.
In Your mercy confer on me
a conversation pleasing to You,
the patience to wait for You,
and the perseverance to long for You.
Grant me a perfect end –
Your holy presence.


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.

    1. Do you know Fr, I can’t remember where I found it – I will have to do a bit of historical research to find out. But, I am always careful to ensure that my sources are legitimate. 🙏
