Cf. Ps 17: 50; 21: 23


I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;

I will tell of your name to my kin, alleluia.



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.



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

Jn3:16


God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son:

everyone who believes in him has eternal life.




The Word of God


John 3:16-21 - God sent his Son into the world so that through him the world might be saved


Jesus said to Nicodemus:

‘God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son,

so that everyone who believes in him may not be lost

but may have eternal life.

For God sent his Son into the world

not to condemn the world,

but so that through him the world might be saved.

No one who believes in him will be condemned;

but whoever refuses to believe is condemned already,

because he has refused to believe in the name of God’s only Son.

On these grounds is sentence pronounced:

that though the light has come into the world

men have shown they prefer darkness to the light

because their deeds were evil.

And indeed, everybody who does wrong

hates the light and avoids it,

for fear his actions should be exposed;

but the man who lives by the truth comes out into the light,

so that it may be plainly seen that what he does is done in God.’





MORNING PRAYER


God our rock and our strength on whom we lean,

help us to create an atmosphere of trust in You

lead us all to heaven

particularly all who are in need of Your great mercy

Through Christ, our Lord.

Amen



. “My daughter, let nothing frighten or disconcert you. Remain deeply at peace. Everything is in My hands.”






Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska:

Divine Mercy in My Soul





The Word of The Lord - From the Acts


Acts 5:17-26 · The men you imprisoned are in the Temple, preaching to the people


The high priest intervened with all his supporters from the party of the Sadducees. Prompted by jealousy, they arrested the apostles and had them put in the common gaol.

But at night the angel of the Lord opened the prison gates and said as he led them out, ‘Go and stand in the Temple, and tell the people all about this new Life.’ They did as they were told; they went into the Temple at dawn and began to preach.

When the high priest arrived, he and his supporters convened the Sanhedrin – this was the full Senate of Israel – and sent to the gaol for them to be brought. But when the officials arrived at the prison they found they were not inside, so they went back and reported, ‘We found the gaol securely locked and the warders on duty at the gates, but when we unlocked the door we found no one inside.’ When the captain of the Temple and the chief priests heard this news they wondered what this could mean. Then a man arrived with fresh news. ‘At this very moment’ he said, ‘the men you imprisoned are in the Temple. They are standing there preaching to the people.’ The captain went with his men and fetched them. They were afraid to use force in case the people stoned them.



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 Glorious 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
