Psalm 23
2008-06-04 12:00:00
The earth is the Lord's and all that is in it, the world and all who dwell in it He has set it on the seas, and prepared it on the rivers.Who will ascend the mountain of the Lord, or who will stand in His holy place?He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not set his mind on vanity or sworn deceitfully to his neighbour.He will receive a blessing from the Lord, and mercy from God his Saviour.These are the kind who seek the Lord, who seek the face of the God of Jacob. Lift up your gates, you princes, and be lifted up, you eternal doors, and the King of Glory will enter.Who is this King of Glory?The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your gates, you princes, and be lifted up, you eternal doors, and the King of Glory will enter.Who is this King of Glory?The Lord of Hosts, He is the King of Glory.Visit Catholic Prayers to see collection of inspiring prayers.

O Jesus , who in Thy bitter Passion didst become "the most abject of men, aman of sorrows", I venerate Thy Sacred Face whereon there once did shine thebeauty and sweetness of the Godhead; but now it has become for me as if itwere the face of a leper! Nevertheless, under those disfigured features, Irecognize Thy infinite Love and I am consumed with the desire to love Theeand make Thee loved by all men.The tears which well up abundantly in Thy sacred eyes appear to me as somany precious pearls that I love to gather up, in order to purchase thesouls of poor sinners by means of their infinite value.O Jesus, whose adorable face ravishes my heart, I implore Thee to fix deepwithin me Thy divine image and to set me on fire with Thy Love, that I maybe found worthy to come to the contemplation of Thy glorious Face in Heaven.Amen.

A Mother's Prayer
2008-05-12 12:00:00
Dear Lord, it's such a hectic day, With little time to stop and pray,For Life's been anything but calm, Since You called me to be a mom -Running errands, matching socks, Building dreams with matching blocks,Cooking, cleaning and finding shoes And other stuff that children lose,Fitting lids on bottled bugs, Wiping tears and giving hugs,A stack of last week's mail to read - So where's the quiet time I need?Yet, when I steal a moment, Lord, Just at the sink or ironing board,To ask the blessings of Your grace,i see then, in my small one's face, That You have blessed me all the while-And I stoop to kiss... That precious smile.
