Only in God - Preparing for the Birth of Christ


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


Today we pray The Sorrowful Mysteries


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. 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


Join us on our Advent Journey


If we know someone is coming to visit us we usually prepare. Cleaning the house, preparing food etc., Likewise Advent in terms of Christianity is a Spiritual preparation for the coming of the birth of Christ.


Starting on the 16th December we have a series of ten articles of reflections leading to Christmas Day itself.


16th. The Advent Wreath

17th. The Blessed Sacrament.

18th. Reading the Word - Scripture

19th. Hope for the future - addiction- trusting in God

20th. Love the greatest commandment

21st. Prayer life. Talking to God.

22nd. The first and second coming of Christ

23rd. Mary

24th. St Joseph

25th. Rejoicing at the Birth of the Saviour of the World


In this series of short reflections we look at particular aspects of our relationship with God.

It is not an examination of conscience, just a simple check on what more we can do to ensure a welcome place in our hearts for Jesus, to know Him just a little better and to really and truly love Him above all things.


From tomorrow we feature articles on Our Lady of Guadalope whose feast it is, on the word of God, preparing for confession particularly after a long absence and an introduction to our advent journey.


I trust you will find it worthwhile to join us on this journey.


Today we celebrate

Friday of the 2nd week of Advent

or Saint Damasus I, Pope

A Spaniard, he was born about 305. Joining the Roman clergy, he was elected Pope in 366, in calamitous times. He held many synods against heretics and schismatics. He promoted the cult of the martyrs. He died in 384.

Other saints: St Maria Maravillas of Jesus (1891-1974)



The Word of God


Matthew 11:16-19 - They heed neither John nor the Son of Man


Jesus spoke to the crowds: ‘What description can I find for this generation? It is like children shouting to each other as they sit in the market place:

“We played the pipes for you,

and you wouldn’t dance;

we sang dirges,

and you wouldn’t be mourners.”

‘For John came, neither eating nor drinking, and they say, “He is possessed.” The Son of Man came, eating and drinking, and they say, “Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.” Yet wisdom has been proved right by her actions.’



MORNING PRAYER

O my Jesus

Look upon our contrite heart and afflicted spirit

and heal our troubled conscience,

so that in the joy and strength of the Holy Spirit

we may proclaim your praise and glory

before all the nations.

St. Faustina Kowalska,


Suffering is a great grace; through suffering the soul becomes like the Savior; in suffering love becomes crystallized; the greater the suffering, the purer the love.” (#57, page 29)


Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska:

Divine Mercy in My Soul


The Word of The Lord - From the Old Testament


Isaiah 48:17-19 · If you had been alert to my commandments, your happiness would have been like a river


Thus says the Lord, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:

I, the Lord, your God, teach you what is good for you,

I lead you in the way that you must go.

If only you had been alert to my commandments,

your happiness would have been like a river,

your integrity like the waves of the sea.

Your children would have been numbered like the sand,

your descendants as many as its grains.

Never would your name have been cut off or blotted out before me.


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.


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
