The Word of God


Mark 1:40-45 - The leprosy left the man at once, and he was cured


A leper came to Jesus and pleaded on his knees: ‘If you want to’ he said ‘you can cure me.’ Feeling sorry for him, Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him. ‘Of course I want to!’ he said. ‘Be cured!’ And the leprosy left him at once and he was cured. Jesus immediately sent him away and sternly ordered him, ‘Mind you say nothing to anyone, but go and show yourself to the priest, and make the offering for your healing prescribed by Moses as evidence of your recovery.’ The man went away, but then started talking about it freely and telling the story everywhere, so that Jesus could no longer go openly into any town, but had to stay outside in places where nobody lived. Even so, people from all around would come to him.



MORNING PRAYER


O Lord as I awake on a new week

Please remain near to me

Keep me safe from all evil

And with Thy help

I will know and do Your blessed will.

Amen





He who knows how to forgive prepares for himself many graces from God. As often as I look upon the cross, so often will I forgive with all my heart.” (390, page 175).



Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska:

Divine Mercy in My Soul





The Word of The Lord - From the Old Testament


1 Corinthians 10:31-11:1 · Take me for your model, as I take Christ


Whatever you eat, whatever you drink, whatever you do at all, do it for the glory of God. Never do anything offensive to anyone – to Jews or Greeks or to the Church of God; just as I try to be helpful to everyone at all times, not anxious for my own advantage but for the advantage of everybody else, so that they may be saved. Take me for your model, as I take Christ.


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 Glorious 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
