Our Morning Offering – 16 November – The Memorial of St Gertrude the Great (1256-1302)

Hail, Sacred Heart of Jesus!
By St Gertrude the Great (1256-1302)

Hail, Sacred Heart of Jesus!
Living and strengthening,
Source of eternal life,
Infinite Treasury of the Divinity,
Burning Furnace of Divine Love!
You are my Refuge and my Sanctuary.
My loving Saviour,
consume my heart in that burning fire
with which Your own is inflamed.
Pour into my soul those graces
which flow from Your Love.
Let my heart be so united with Yours,
that our wills may be one
and my will, in all things,
conformed with Yours.
May Your Will be the guide
and rule of my desires
and of my actions.
Amen

Our Morning Offering – 9 July – Daily Offering to the Father

Our Morning Offering – 9 July – “Month of the Most Precious Blood”

Daily Offering to the Father
Attri To St Gertrude the Great (1256-1302)

Eternal Father,
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.
Amen

You might see fantastic claims for this prayer, especially printed on Holy Cards, such as the release of 1000 souls from Purgatory, each time it is prayed. Nowhere in St Gertrude’s writings, is this wild promise made so be careful of treating prayers and devotions as amulets or magical charms. And further, this prayer is claimed to have been written by heer but this is very uncertain.
The Church has summarily condemned prayer cards containing a promise to release one or more souls from Purgatory, or any other ‘miraculous’ claims.
Such an easy way to release 1,000 souls seems inconsistent with the Church’s understanding of Purgatory, given that ordinarily, to release one soul, requires a plenary indulgence which is very difficult to get and, given all the means the Church employs to help the dead, such as special masses or indulgences applicable only to the dead.

Hail Mary, Queen of Mercy

Hail Mary, Queen of Mercy,
olive-branch of forgiveness,
through whom we receive
the medicine that heals our sickness,
the balsam of pardon.
Virgin Mother of the divine off-spring,
through your Son,
your only Child who stooped
to become the brother of humankind,
you are the true Mother of us all.
For the sake of His love,
take me, unworthy as I am,
into your motherly care.
Sustain, preserve
and enlighten my conversion.
Be for me, for all eternity,
my cherished mother,
tenderly caring for me
throughout my earthly life
and enfolding me in your arms,
at the hour of my death.

An Act of Thanksgiving
By St Gertrude the Great

May my soul bless You,
O Lord God my Creator,
may my soul bless You.
From the very core of my being,
may all Your merciful gifts sing Your praise.
Your generous care for Your daughter,
has been rich in mercy;
indeed it has been immeasurable
and as far as I am able,
I give You thanks.
I praise and glorify,
Your great patience which bore with me
I offer You, most loving Father,
all the sufferings of Your beloved Son,
from that first infant cry
as He lay on the hay in the manger,
until that final movement, when,
bowing His head, with a mighty voice,
Christ gave up His spirit.
I think, as I make this offering,
of all that He underwent,
His needs as a baby,
His dependence as a young child,
the hardships of youth
and the trials of early manhood.
To atone for all my neglect I offer,
most loving Father,
all that Your only-begotten Son did
during His life,
whether in thought, word or deed.
And now, as an act of thanksgiving,
I praise and worship You, Father,
in deepest humility,
for Your most loving kindness and mercy.
Amen
