Jesus, you are light even in the darkest places.
Help us to trust in you when we are lost or lonely.
Shine hope into our hearts we pray.

As a Catholic, I am a member of Thy Kingdom, and Thou Art my King.To Thee I owe loyalty, obedience and love.Help me to carry out these most sacred duties towards Thee. I wish to be of  "the truth" that is "a child of God", and gladly to hear Thy voice and follow Thee in all things. I accept Thee as my King and submit to Thy authority.

Reign supremely in my heart and in my mind.Thy reign is heavenly peace. Thy law is love. Help me to pray and work that Thy Kingdom may come into every soul, every family, every nation.

Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord

So then the Lord Jesus, after he spoke to them, was taken up into heaven and took his seat at the right hand of God. But they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word through accompanying signs.

Prayer for John Michael's Birthday

Heavenly Father,

I want to thank you for the life of my son John Michael on his 17th birthday.

Please bless him and keep him all of his days. My prayer for his birthday is that he would follow you, thirst after Your word, long for Your presence, tell of Your good works, and be Your servant all the days of his life. 

I ask for protection from the enemy and anyone with ungodly influences; that John Michael would have good judgment and a desire to do Your will. Please place John Michael in the palm of Your hand, under Your watchful eye. Draw him to seek Your direction and guidance in all that he does. Lord, I boldly ask for a spiritual, mental, physical, emotional and financial blessing over John Michael's life. Anoint him with your Spirit of mercy and compassion, in the name of Jesus, the Christ. 


17 !

Happy 17th Birthday John Michael !

We love you !!!

Ash Wednesday

Today is Ash Wednesday. It is the beginning of Lent for Western Christian churches. It is a day of penitence to clean the soul before the Lent fast.
Churchgoers are marked with a  cross of ashes on the forehead as a sign of penance and mortality.

God our Father, you create us from the dust of the earth.
Grant that these ashes may be for us a sign of our penitence, and a symbol of our mortality.

Ash Wednesday is a the beginning of Lent. It a  season of reparation and reflection before the celebration of Easter.
