Our Morning Offering – 20 January

Lord Jesus, May I ….
Indulgenced Prayer of Petitions
By St Augustine (354-430)

Father and Doctor of Grace

LORD JESUS,
may I know myself
and know Thee
and desire nothing save only Thee.
May I hate myself and love Thee.
May I do everything for the sake of Thee.
May I humble myself and exalt Thee.
May I think of nothing except Thee.
May I die to myself and live in Thee.
May I receive whatever happens, as from Thee.
May I banish self and follow Thee
and ever desire to follow Thee.
May I fly from myself and fly to Thee.
That I may deserve to be defended by Thee.
May I fear for myself and fear Thee
and be among those who are chosen by Thee.
May i distrust myself and trust in Thee,
May I be willing to obey on account of Thee.
May I cling to nothing but to Thee.
May I be poor for the sake of Thee.
Look upon me, that I may love Thee.
Call me, that I may see Thee
and ever and ever, enjoy Thee.
Amen.

50 Days Indulgence once a day
Pope Leo XIII
25 September 1881

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.
