Our Lord and His Holy Apostles at the Last Supper

A blog dedicated to Christ Jesus our Lord and His True Presence in the Holy Mystery of the Eucharist

Now therefore saith the Lord: Be converted to me with all your heart, in fasting, and in weeping, and in mourning. And rend your hearts, and not your garments, and turn to the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful

William of Mt. Virgine

Saint William of Monte Virgine

O God, Who to smooth the way of salvation for our weakness hast given Thy Saints to be our example and protection: grant that we may so venerate the merits of thy blessed Abbot William, that we may obtain his prayers and follow in his footsteps. Through Christ our Lord.

A Novena to the Sacred Heart of our Lord and Savior (Day Three)

Cor ad cor loquitur

Take a few moments again to settle your heart. Set aside your sorrows and preoccupations as well as you can while you pray. Recall that despite the unsteadiness of our service to God, He does not waver in His love for us. He has made us to live likewise in generous and constant loving-kindness. Speak from your heart to your Creator:

O most holy Heart of Jesus,
fountain of every blessing,
I adore Thee, I love Thee
and with a lively sorrow for my sins,
I offer Thee this poor heart of mine.
Make me humble, patient, pure
and wholly obedient to Thy will.
Grant, good Jesus,
that I may live in Thee and for Thee.
Protect me in the midst of danger;
comfort me in my afflictions;
give me health of body,
assistance in my temporal needs,
Thy blessing on all that I do,
and the grace of a holy death.
Within Thy Heart I place my every care.
In every need let me come to Thee
with humble trust saying,
Heart of Jesus help me.
