A Prayer For Our Nation, America.

O Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy, at this most critical time, we entrust the United States of America to your loving care.

Most Holy Mother, we beg you to reclaim this land for the glory of your Son. Overwhelmed with the burden of the sins of our nation, we cry to you from the depths of our hearts and seek refuge in your motherly protection.

Look down with mercy upon us and touch the hearts of our people. Open our minds to the great worth of human life and to the responsibilities that go with human freedom.

Free us from the falsehoods that lead to the evil of abortion and threaten the sanctity of family life.  Grant our country the wisdom to proclaim that God’s law is the foundation on which this nation was founded, and that He alone is the True Source of our cherished rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

O Merciful Mother, give us the courage to reject the culture of death and the strength to build a new Culture of Life.  In this I pray, Amen.

Salve Regina: Hail Holy Queen.

Immaculate Virgin Mary, Blessed Mother

THE SALVE REGINA

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy. hail our life, our sweetness and our hope! To You do we cry, poor banished children of Eve! To You do we send up our sighs; mourning and weeping in this vale of tears! Turn, most gracious Advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us; and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of Your womb, Jesus! O Clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!

PRAYER TO OUR LADY, COMFORTER OF THE AFFLICTED

Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our most compassionate Mother, we present ourselves in thy sight in all humility, and with full confidence
we implore thee for thy maternal patronage. Please be the Comforter of the Afflicted, and to thee constant recourse is had by the sorrowful in their afflictions, the sick in their maladies, the dying in their agony, the poor in their straitened circumstances, those who stand in all way of need in both public and private calamities; and from thee they all receive consolation and strength.

Our dearest Mother, turn upon us also, wretched sinners that we are, thy merciful eyes, and graciously accept our humble and confident prayers. Aid us in all our spiritual and temporal necessities, deliver us from all evil and especially from sin, which is the greatest evil, and from all danger of falling into it; obtain for us from thy Son Jesus every blessing of which thou see we stand in need both in soul and body, and especially the greatest blessing of all, which is Divine grace. Comfort our spirits, troubled and afflicted in the midst of the many dangers that threaten us, and the countless miseries and misfortunes that beset us on every side. This we ask through that immense joy which filled thy pure soul in the glorious Resurrection of thy Divine Son.

In this I pray, Amen

God’s Garden

Remembering my Aunt Sue today. She is with the Lord in heaven. God let me spend time with her, my 2nd Mother before she passed. My Aunt Sue read the Holy Bible from cover to cover she would exclaim with such joy.  There is a place in my heart that is only reserved for her. May God give strength to my cousin her daughter, Marjorie and to all children and grandchildren. Especially, my dearest cousin Denise who ministers to me about the purpose life and death. She is such a humble Christian.  But My Aunt touched the heart of so many people. She was a Woman of God on this earth.

God of our ancestors in faith, by the covenant made on Mount Sinai, You taught Your people to strengthen the bonds of family through faith, honor, and love.  God of faithfulness, in Your wisdom You have called my Aunt Sue out of this world.  YOU have released her from the bonds of sin, and welcome her into Your Presence, so the she may enjoy eternal light and peace and be raised up in glory with all Your saints. Grant that I may see my dearest Aunt Sue again in the brightness of Your everlasting glory. I ask this through Your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ.  In this I pray, Amen.

 

 

God looked around his garden,
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth,
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you,
And lifted you to rest;
God’s garden must be beautiful-He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain;
He knew you would never get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And hills were hard to climb
So he closed your weary eyelids, and whispered,
“Peace be thine.”
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone,
For a part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

Solemnity of The Holy Mother Of God, The Octave, January 1st.

Luke 2:21

21 And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.

Mary Mother of God, It is through the virginal Motherhood of Mary that the Word was made flesh. In adoring the Son of God made man in the Child of Bethlehem, we recognize that Mary is the Mother of God

Luke 1:34-38

34 And Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I am a virgin?”[c]

35 And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born[d] will be called holy—the Son of God. 36 And behold, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son, and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren. 37 For nothing will be impossible with God.” 38 And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant[e] of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.

John 19:26-27

26 When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” 27 Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.

O Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Christ and Mother of the Church, With joy and wonder we seek to make our own your Magnificat, joining you in your hymn of thankfulness and love.  In this I pray, Amen
