Our Prayers to the Saints – 27 December – St John the Apostle and Evangelist, the Beloved
Indulgenced Prayer to St John
(Indulgence 200 days, once a day,
Pope Leo XIII, 1897)
O Glorious Apostle,
who, on account of thy virginal purity,
wast so beloved by Jesus
as to deserve to lay thy head
upon His Divine breast
and to be left, in His place,
as son to His most holy Mother;
I beg thee to inflame me
with a most ardent love for Jesus and Mary.
Obtain for me from Our Lord
that I, too, with a heart
purified from earthly affections,
may be made worthy,
to be ever united to Jesus.
as a faithful disciple
and to Mary, as a devoted child,,
both here on earth
and eternally in Heaven.
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.
This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul.
"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.
