Our Morning Offering – 8 November – Friday of the Thirty First week in Ordinary Time week in Ordinary Time, Year C

The problems continue with my site but better late than never for this beautiful prayer, somehow it didn’t post earlier.

Write Your Blessed Name, Upon My Heart
By Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471)

Write Your blessed name,
O Lord,
upon my heart,
there to remain so indelibly engraved,
that no prosperity,
no adversity shall ever move me
from Your love.
Be to me a strong tower of defence,
a comforter in tribulation,
a deliverer in distress,
a very present help in trouble
and a guide to heaven
through the many temptations
and dangers of this life.
Amenwrite your blessed name o lord upon my heart - thomas a kempist - 5 feb 2019

all the way, that faithful God.
Every morning when you awaken
to the old and tolerable pain,
at every mile of the hot uphill dusty road of tiring duty,
on to the judgement seat,
the same Christ there as ever,
still loving you,
still sufficient for you, even then.
And then, on through all eternity.”

“I have a place in God’s counsels,
In God’s world
which no-one else has,
whether I be rich or poor,
despised or esteemed by man,
God knows me
and calls me by my name.
God has created me to do Him
some definite service.
He has committed some work to me,
which He has not committed to another.
I have my mission –
I never may know it in this life
but I shall be told it, in the next.
…Yet, I have a part in this great work,
I am a link in a chain,
…I shall do good,
I shall do His work,
I shall be an angel of peace,
a preacher of truth in my own place
…and serve Him in my calling.”

may be blessed for all times.

Grant the desires of the devout,
help the sick in their needs,
strengthen the hearts of the afflicted,
be present to those in their final agony.
Protect your suppliant servants
from the assaults of demons,
bring with you
all who love you
into the reward of eternal blessedness,
where, with your beloved Son,
Jesus Christ,
you reign happily forever.
Amen.most merciful mothr of god by thomas a kempis - 7 sept 2019
