Rebuke me not, O Lord,
In Thine indignation;
nor chastise me in Thy wrath.
For Thine arrows are fastened in me:
and Thy hand hath been strong upon me.
There is no health in my flesh,
because of Thy wrath:
there is no peace for my bones,
because of my sins.
For my iniquities are gone over my head:
and as a heavy burden are become heavy upon me.
My sores are putrified and corrupted,
because of my foolishness.
I am become miserable,
and am bowed down even to the end:
I walked sorrowful all the day long.
For my loins are filled with illusions;
and there is no health in my flesh.
I am afflicted and humbled exceedingly:
I roared with the groaning of my heart.
Lord, all my desire is before Thee,
and my groaning, is not hidden from Thee.
My heart is troubled, my strength hath left me,
and the light of my eyes itself is not with me.
My friends and my neighbours have drawn near,
and stood against me.
And they that were near me stood afar off;
And they that sought my soul used violence.
And they that sought evils to me spoke vain things,
and studied deceits all the day long.
But I, as a deaf man, heard not:
and as a dumb man not opening his mouth.
And I became as a man that heareth not:
and that hath no reproofs in his mouth.
For in Thee, O Lord, have I hope:
Thou wilt hear me, O Lord my God.
For I said: Lest at any time my enemies rejoice over me:
and whilst my feet are moved,
they speak great things against me.
For I am ready for scourges;
and my sorrow is continualy before me.
For I will declare my iniquity:
and I will think for my sin.
But my enemies live,
and are stronger than I:
and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
They that render evil for good,
have detracted me,
because I followed goodness.
Forsake me not, O Lord my God:
do not Thou depart from me.
Attend unto my help, O Lord,
the God of my salvation.
Glory be the the Father...
God of power and mercy, open our hearts in welcome. Remove the things that hinder us from receiving Christ with joy, so that we may share his wisdom and become one with him when he comes in glory, for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. continue reading
In the centuries old Catholic tradition, holy cards or prayer cards are small, devotional cards for the use of the faithful. Prayer cards have an endless amount of use and make wonderful gifts and keepsakes.
The UN has cut off food aid for an estimated 200,000 Christians in the Middle East. The only way these people will survive is through your generosity.
If you make a single donation now, you will feed a child 30 meals. Naturally, the more you give, the more people you help and save. As Christians we are called to be "Good Samaritans" to our neighbors. Right now, Christian children are fighting cold, fighting hunger, and fighting just to survive.
Knowing this, how can you pass by? Give generously.
