Ps 105: 47


Save us, O Lord our God!

And gather us from the nations,

to give thanks to your holy name,

and make it our glory to praise you.



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

St. John Bosco (1815-1888)


Prayer of St John Bosco


Help me to work

for a better world,

where the young

are given the chance to flourish,

where the poor’s dream for justice

can come true,

and where God’s compassion

is shown to be real.

Intercede for me as I bring my needs

to you and to

Our heavenly Mother,

the Help of Christians.

Amen



Mt4:16


The people that lived in darkness

has seen a great light;

on those who dwell in the land and shadow of death

a light has dawned.



The Word of God


Mark 1:21-28 - Unlike the scribes, he taught them with authority


Jesus and his disciples went as far as Capernaum, and as soon as the sabbath came he went to the synagogue and began to teach. And his teaching made a deep impression on them because, unlike the scribes, he taught them with authority.

In their synagogue just then there was a man possessed by an unclean spirit and it shouted, ‘What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are: the Holy One of God.’ But Jesus said sharply, ‘Be quiet! Come out of him!’ And the unclean spirit threw the man into convulsions and with a loud cry went out of him. The people were so astonished that they started asking each other what it all meant. ‘Here is a teaching that is new’ they said ‘and with authority behind it: he gives orders even to unclean spirits and they obey him.’ And his reputation rapidly spread everywhere, through all the surrounding Galilean countryside.



MORNING PRAYER


God our Father

From living stones, your chosen people

You called your people to be your Church.

As we gather in your Name,

May we live, honour and follow You

To eternal life in the Kingdom You promise.

Amen



“‘I am love and Mercy Itself. There is no misery that could be a match for My mercy, neither will misery exhaust it, because as it is being granted – it increases. The soul that trusts in My mercy is most fortunate, because I Myself take care of it.’”



Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska:

Divine Mercy in My Soul





The Word of The Lord - From the letters of Paul


1 Corinthians 7:32-35 · Give your undivided attention to the Lord


I would like to see you free from all worry. An unmarried man can devote himself to the Lord’s affairs, all he need worry about is pleasing the Lord; but a married man has to bother about the world’s affairs and devote himself to pleasing his wife: he is torn two ways. In the same way an unmarried woman, like a young girl, can devote herself to the Lord’s affairs; all she need worry about is being holy in body and spirit. The married woman, on the other hand, has to worry about the world’s affairs and devote herself to pleasing her husband. I say this only to help you, not to put a halter round your necks, but simply to make sure that everything is as it should be, and that you give your undivided attention to the Lord.

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
