I give thanks to Thee, O Lord, most holy,
Father almighty, eternal God,
that Thou hast vouchsafed,
for no merit of mine own,
but out of Thy pure mercy,
to appease the hunger of my soul
with the precious body and blood of Thy Son,
Our LordJesus Christ.
Humbly I implore Thee,
let not this holy communion
be to me an increase of guilt unto my punishment,
but an availing plea unto pardon and salvation.
Let it be to me the armour of faith
and the shield of good will.
May it root out from my heart all vice;
may it utterly subdue my evilpassions
and all my unruly desires.
May it perfect me in charity and patience;
in humility and obedience;
and in all other virtues.
May it be my sure defence
against the snares laid for me by my enemies,
visible and invisible.
May it restrain and quiet all my evil impulses,
and make me ever cleave to Thee
Who art the one true God.
May I owe to it a happy ending of my life.
And do Thou, O heavenly Father,
vouchsafe one day to call me, a sinner,
to that ineffable banquet,
where Thou, together with Thy Son and the Holy Ghost,
art to Thy saints true and unfailing light,
fullness of content,
joy for evermore,
gladness without alloy,
consummate and everlasting happiness.
Through the same Christ our Lord.
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.
