Quote/s of the Day – 16 November – St Gertrude the Great (1256-1302) Virgin – “The Month of the Holy Souls in Purgatory”
Daily Offering to the Father
By St Gertrude the Great (1256-1302) (Attrib)
I offer Thee the most precious blood
of Thy Divine Son, Jesus,
in union with the Masses said
throughout the world today,
for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory,
for sinners everywhere,
for sinners in the universal Church,
for those in my own home,
and in my family.
“I praise, adore, bless and thank Thee,
to the best of my ability,
for Thy wise mercy
and Thy merciful wisdom!
For Thou, my Creator and my Redeemer,
have sought to curb my stiff-necked obstinacy
under Thy sweet yoke
with the remedy
best suited to my infirmity.”
O Sacred Heart of Jesus
By St Gertrude the Great (1256-1302)
O Sacred Heart of Jesus,
Fountain of eternal life,
Your Heart is a glowing Furnace of Love.
You are my Refuge and my Sanctuary.
O my adorable and loving Saviour,
consume my heart with the burning fire
with which Your Heart is enflamed.
Pour down on my soul those graces
which flow from Your love.
Let my heart be united with Your Heart.
Let my will be conformed to Your Will in all things.
May Your Will be the Rule of all my desires and actions.
