Only in God Prayer Blog - 11 Feb 2021 Our Lady of Lourdes

Ps 94: 6-7


O come, let us worship God

and bow low before the God who made us,

for he is the Lord our God.



In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Let us pray


O Jesus I Surrender myself to You, You take over. Amen

We make no apology for stating it is time to -


Stand up for Jesus.


As Mary forewarned Satan has made inroads into the Holy Church of God. We must therefore do as Mary requested pray, renew belief in, and, devotion to the Blessed Sacrament - the true presence - through Holy Mass, Adoration, Benediction, spending time before the Tabernacle and saying each day the Rosary. Uphold the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ



Uphold the true Gospel of Jesus Christ


The Importance of Prayer


The times we are living through have been foretold both by Our Blessed Mother and in the Holy Word of God. For the second time this writer has decided to stop commenting on the issues of the day and concentrate on prayer. The situation has gone past anything I can do to change it and there is always the danger of scandal.


This column will concentrate on prayer including the Holy Rosary (see below) given the fact that we place our faith on God and His Son Jesus Christ and as He requested trust Him and hand our problems, our troubles, over to Him.


Join us in our journey.


O Jesus I surrender myself, my worries, my troubles over to you, as You have requested. Jesus I trust You, You take over


Today We Celebrate


Our Lady of Lourdes

Mary calls on sinners to change their lives.

She has inspired in the Church

a great love of prayer and good works,

especially in the service of the poor and the sick.


Other Saints

Saint Gobnait


In the Church's calendar today is actually 'Thursday of Week 5 in Ordinary Time.


Is anyone else wondering why major feasts of Our Blessed Mother are being downgraded by the Catholic Church. Is it that some within the leadership are trying to downgrade the messages of Our Blessed Virgin?



The Word of God


Mark 7:24-30 - The astuteness of the Syro-Phoenician woman


Jesus left Gennesaret and set out for the territory of Tyre. There he went into a house and did not want anyone to know he was there, but he could not pass unrecognised. A woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit heard about him straightaway and came and fell at his feet. Now the woman was a pagan, by birth a Syrophoenician, and she begged him to cast the devil out of her daughter. And he said to her, ‘The children should be fed first, because it is not fair to take the children’s food and throw it to the house-dogs.’ But she spoke up: ‘Ah yes, sir,’ she replied ‘but the house-dogs under the table can eat the children’s scraps.’ And he said to her, ‘For saying this, you may go home happy: the devil has gone out of your daughter.’ So she went off to her home and found the child lying on the bed and the devil gone.



MORNING PRAYER


O Blessed Virgin

My loving Mother,

I will try to imitate your virtues

so that I may one day

share your company

and bless you in eternity.

Amen.






Pure love is capable of great deeds, and it is not broken by difficulty or adversity. As it remains strong in the midst of great difficulties, so too it perseveres in the toilsome and drab life of each day.




Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska:

Divine Mercy in My Soul





The Word of The Lord - From the Old Testament


Genesis 2:18-25 · Man and wife become one body


The Lord God said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone. I will make him a helpmate.’ So from the soil the Lord God fashioned all the wild beasts and all the birds of heaven. These he brought to the man to see what he would call them; each one was to bear the name the man would give it. The man gave names to all the cattle, all the birds of heaven and all the wild beasts. But no helpmate suitable for man was found for him. So the Lord God made the man fall into a deep sleep. And while he slept, he took one of his ribs and enclosed it in flesh. The Lord God built the rib he had taken from the man into a woman, and brought her to the man. The man exclaimed:


‘This at last is bone from my bones,

and flesh from my flesh!

This is to be called woman,

for this was taken from man.’


This is why a man leaves his father and mother and joins himself to his wife, and they become one body.


Now both of them were naked, the man and his wife, but they felt no shame in front of each other.


Each day I pray that the Lord

will bless you and keep you.

May He show His face to you

and have mercy.

May He turn His countenance to you

and give you peace.

The Lord bless you!

Amen.


Always remember - Jesus loves you.


Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel


Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in our hour of conflict. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.


The Holy Rosary


Our Blessed Mother explained to us what would happen in the World and in the Church if people continued to turn from God. One of the things she asked us to do was to say the Rosary everyday. Please find a few minutes today to fulfil her request.


Today we pray

The Luminous Mysteries


Only in God is my soul at rest.

In Him comes my salvation.


We finish as we begun


In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
