Todays Word of God


Matthew 11:25-30 - You have hidden these things from the wise

and revealed them to little children


Jesus exclaimed, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to mere children. Yes, Father, for that is what it pleased you to do. Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, just as no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.


‘Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden light.’

The Rosary


Mary said 'I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary. The Rosary shall be a powerful armour against hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.'


To day we pray the Luminous Mysteries



Morning Prayer


O My Jesus,

often have I signed the death warrant by my sins;

save me by Thy death from that eternal death

which I have so often deserved





Holy God,

Holy Mighty One,

Holy Immortal One,

have mercy on us

and on the whole world


Divine Mercy in My Soul




Prayer to St Michael


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.



Each day we end with a Fatima prayer


The Rosary Decade Prayer


Oh My Jesus,

forgive us our sins,

save us from the fires of Hell,

lead all souls to Heaven,

especially those in most need of Thy mercy.
