St. Michael Prayer

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard 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, cast into hell satan and all of the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Glory to God in the Highest!

Ending the Week With Thanksgiving and Praise

From his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace."
John 1: 16 

1) The Falls were beautiful.  The weather was cool and crisp.  It was a nice walk.

2) Fred, the cat, has allowed me to cuddle with him, especially when he jumps up on my mouse pad and purrs.

3) Getting ready for knee surgery on Monday.  That's a good thing.

"Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, O my soul!I will praise the Lord as long as I live;
    I will sing praises to my God all my life long."
Psalm 146:1-2

A Blog Post Can Remind Again: Please pray for the Souls in Purgatory

Eternal Father,
we offer You the most Precious Blood of Your Divine Son,
in union with all of the Masses said throughout the world today,
in reparation for sins, 
for the Holy Souls in Purgatory,
for sinners everywhere,
for sinners in the Universal Church,
those within my own home,
within my family.

A Blog Post Can be Meditative

At the end of the day,
He's still there,
waiting for us,
ready to cover us in 
His Most Precious Blood
poured out of His Body
for love of us.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.
John 3:16

Aren't Animals Amazing?

Aren't animals amazing? They live in the moment, without fear or anxiety, and even though this election has been the most turbulent and dramatic one that I can remember in all of my life, they are both sleeping peacefully, passing gassssssss, and wondering when their next meal will be served to them by me, one of their humans who has been awake since a jolt at 3:30 AM from my phone telling me that we have a new president elect.

Dear God, make me more like these creatures you have entrusted to my care. Open my eyes to learn to trust in You, and You alone.
Give me humility so that I might learn to submit to Your Most Holy Will. Help me to see the hurt and pain of those who so incredibly committed themselves to the other candidate so that I might be a source of Your Mercy and Kindness. Lord, help me to be a source of Your Love for all. Amen.
