St Joseph's Prayer Blog - 28 Jan 2021 St. Thomas Aquinas

Cf. Sir 15: 5


In the midst of the Church he opened his mouth,

and the Lord filled him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding

and clothed him in a robe of glory.




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

Today We Celebrate


Saint Thomas Aquinas, Priest, Doctor

on Thursday of week 3 in Ordinary Time


Out of his depth of learning came

the dazzling poetry of the liturgy for Corpus Christi.


Mt23:9,10

You have only one Father,

and he is in heaven;

you have only one Teacher,

the Christ.



The Word of God


Matthew 23:8-12 - The greatest among you must be your servant


Jesus said to his disciples, ‘You must not allow yourselves to be called Rabbi, since you have only one master, and you are all brothers. You must call no one on earth your father, since you have only one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor must you allow yourselves to be called teachers, for you have only one Teacher, the Christ. The greatest among you must be your servant. Anyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and anyone who humbles himself will exalted.’


MORNING PRAYER


Let us pray for the Holy Spirit to inspire us,

like St Thomas, to love God

with our minds as well as our hearts;

for the truth of worldly teachings

can never contradict the truth that is God.

Amen




“O my Jesus, You have tested me so many times in this short life of mine! I have come to understand so many things, and even such that now amaze me. Oh, how good it is to abandon oneself totally to God and to give Him full freedom to act in one’s soul!” (134, page 74)


Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska:

Divine Mercy in My Soul





The Word of The Lord - From the Book of Wisdom


Wisdom 7:7-10,15-16 · I esteemed Wisdom more than sceptres or thrones


I prayed, and understanding was given me;

I entreated, and the spirit of Wisdom came to me.

I esteemed her more than sceptres and thrones;

compared with her, I held riches as nothing.

I reckoned no priceless stone to be her peer,

for compared with her, all gold is a pinch of sand,

and beside her silver ranks as mud.

I loved her more than health or beauty,

preferred her to the light,

since her radiance never sleeps.

May God grant me to speak as he would wish

and express thoughts worthy of his gifts,

since he himself is the guide of Wisdom,

since he directs the sages.

We are indeed in his hand, we ourselves and our words,

with all our understanding, too, and technical knowledge.



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.


The Holy Rosary


Our Blessed Mother explained to us what would happen in the World and in the Church if people continued to turn from God. One of the things she asked us to do was to say the Rosary everyday. Please find a few minutes today to fulfil her request.


Today we pray

The Luminous Mysteries.


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
