Please join me in praying this chaplet every day in reparation for all abuses of the Blessed Sacrament.
This chaplet can be prayed at any time during the day.
Prayers I Love: Chaplet Of The Adorable Sacrament
After every Holy Mass in my parish, we pray this prayer. And when I am not able to get there during the week, I say it myself ~ sometimes more than once a day.
First they should tempt people to covet riches (as he usually does, at least in most cases), so that they may more easily come to vain honour from the world and finally to surging pride. In this way, the first step is riches, the second is honour and the third is pride and from these three steps the enemy entices them to all the other vices.
Here is Ignatius (n the Spiritual Exercises) speaking about the progressive dangers of not living simply. He is asking us to imagine Satan giving advice to his minions about how to tempt human beings to pride.
So what is it that you truly desire – is it things of this world – if not “things”, success, honour, power?
Novena to the Precious Blood #pinterest
Eternal Father, I offer You the merits of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus, Your Beloved Son and my Divine Redeemer, for all my wants, spiritual and temporal, for the holy souls in Purgatory, and particularly for those who, in their lifetime, were most devoted to this price of our redemption, and to the sorrows and pains of our dear Mother, most Holy Mary.
May the Blood of Jesus purify the souls in purgatory and that they may soon reach heaven. Amen.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Blessed and praised forevermore be Jesus Who has saved us by His Precious Blood! Amen.
Blessed and exalted be the Blood of Jesus, now and always, and through all eternity. Amen.
Novena to St Alphonus Liguori #pinterest
St. Alphonsus you have said: The more a person loves God, the more reason he has to hope in Him. This hope produces in the Saints an unutterable peace, which they preserve even in adversity, because as they love God, and know how beautiful He is to those who love Him, they place all their confidence and find all their repose in Him alone.
GLORIOUS Saint Alphonsus, Bishop and Doctor of the Church, devoted servant of our Lord and loving child of Mary, I invoke you as a Saint in heaven. I give myself to your protection that you may always be my protector and my guide in the way of holiness and salvation. Aid me in observing the duties of my state of life. Obtain for me great purity of heart and a fervent love of the interior life after your own example.
I have great confidence in your prayers. I earnestly trust that if it is God’s holy Will, my petition will be granted through your intercession for me at the throne of God. (Mention your intention) Amen
Oh sweet and holy Jesus,
you are the King of Kings,
the Lord of lords,
the Prince of peace.
Most merciful Saviour, bring much needed peace to all troubled parts of the world,
where hated and violence rage, where the fear of war spurs despair among mankind.
May the leaders of nations make wise choices based on the common good of humanity rather than the decisions based on prideful and political displays of power.
May dialogue and understanding overcome the deep seated wounds of groups pitted against one another by anger and distrust.
In Your loving kindness grant comfort to the displaced ,
healing to the wounded and mercy to all those who lost their lives.
Please protect all those in harms way,
and allow justice and peace to reign together.
May the voice of Your Church continue to boldly proclaim the gospel of peace,
for You told us ” blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called the children of god. ”
THE HOME FRONT
“Jesus said to them, ‘No prophet is without honor except in his native place, indeed in his own house.’ ” —Matthew 13:57
We as Christians expect Herod (Mt 14:1ff), Hitler, and Planned Parenthood to be our enemies. We may be surprised when our own religious leaders attack and reject us (see Mt 12:1ff). And we are usually shocked when our hometown folk, even our own family, reject and persecute us (see Mt 13:57). We understand the lament of the psalmist: “If an enemy had reviled me, I could have borne it; if he who hates me had vaunted himself against me, I might have hidden from him. But you, my other self, my companion and my bosom friend! You, whose comradeship I enjoyed; at whose side I walked in procession in the house of God!” (Ps 55:13-15)
We Christians are often our own worst enemies. When we Christians are “hit close to home,” we are hit hard. Therefore, we must arm ourselves with the mentality that we will suffer in the flesh (1 Pt 4:1), even from those closest to us. Jesus made it clear that “a man’s enemies” would be “those of his own household” (Mt 10:36). Jesus said: “You will be delivered up even by your parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and some of you will be put to death. All will hate you because of Me” (Lk 2…[Read more]
Blessed are they who deserved to receive Christ in their homes
Martha and Mary were sisters, related not only by blood but also by religious aspirations. They stayed close to our Lord and both served him harmoniously when he was among them. Martha welcomed him as travellers are welcomed. But in her case, the maidservant received her Lord, the invalid her Saviour, the creature her Creator, to serve him bodily food while she was to be fed by the Spirit. For the Lord willed to put on the form of a slave, and under this form to be fed by his own servants, out of condescension and not out of need. For this was indeed condescension, to present himself to be fed; since he was in the flesh he would indeed be hungry and thirsty.Our Lord’s words teach us that though we labour among the many distractions of this world, we should have but one goal. For we are but travellers on a journey without as yet a fixed abode; we are on our way, not yet in our native land; we are in a state of longing, not yet of enjoyment. But let us continue on our way, and continue without sloth or respite, so that we may ultimately arrive at our destination.
Thus was the Lord received as a guest who came unto his own and his own received him not; but as many as received him, he gave them the power t…[Read more]
Thought for the Day – July 29 #pinterest
Scripture commentators point out that in writing his account of the raising of Lazarus, St. John intends that we should see Martha’s words to Mary before Lazarus was raised as a summons that every Christian must obey. In her saying “The teacher is here and is asking for you,” Jesus is calling every one of us to resurrection—now in baptismal faith, forever in sharing His victory over death. And all of us, as well as these three friends, are in our own unique way called to special friendship with Him.
“Encouraged by so great a cloud of witnesses, we may run as victors in the race before us and win with them the imperishable crown of glory through Christ our Lord” (Roman Missal, Preface of Saints I).
St Martha, Mary and Lazarus Pray for us!

“The Stillness of prayer is the most essential
condition for fruitful action. Before all else,
the disciple kneels down.”

One Minute Reflection – July 29 #pinterest
The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament proclaims his handiwork….Ps 19:1
REFLECTION – Learn to love the Creator in His creation, the Worker in His work.
Don’t be so fascinated by things created that you forget the One Who created all of them,……..St Augustine
PRAYER – Almighty God, help me to love You in Your creatures – both living and non-living. Let me realise that no matter how marvelous is Your creation, You are infinitely more marvelous and lovable. Teach me to use all of Your goodness to me only to Your greater glory and not be distracted by the concerns of my life. St Martha Pray for us! Amen
Our Morning Offering – July 29 #pinterest
The Angel’s Prayer At Fatima “The Pardon Prayer”
My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love Thee! I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love Thee.
Most Holy Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit- I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifferences whereby He is offended. By the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners. Amen
