Our Morning Offering – 29 January – St Francis de Sales (1567-1622) Bishop, Confessor and Doctor and Mary’s Day and Mary’s Day

Say Not, Merciful Virgin
By St Francis de Sales (1567-1622
Doctor Caritatis

Say not, Merciful Virgin,
that you cannot help me,
for your Beloved Son
holds all power in Heaven
and on earth.
Say not, that you ought not
to assist me,
for you are the Mother
of all poor children of Adam
and my Mother in particular.
Since, then, Merciful Virgin,
you are my Mother
and you are all-powerful,
what excuse can you offer
if you do not lend your assistance?
See, my Mother, see,
you are obliged to grant me what I ask
and to yield to my entreaties.
Amen.

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.
