Prayer of Our Lady of Akita,Japan

Posted on December 23, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus,
truly present in the Holy Eucharist,
I consecrate my body and soul
to be entirely one with Your Heart,
being sacrificed at every instant
on all the altars of the world
and giving praise to the Father,
pleading for the coming of His Kingdom.
Please receive this humble offering of myself.
Use me as You will
for the glory of the Father
and the salvation of souls.
Most Holy Mother of God,
never let me be separated
from Your Divine Son.
Please defend and protect me
as Your (special) child.
Amen.

All the glory of the king’s daughter is within in golden borders Psalm 44:14

Posted on December 23, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Ant. Thou shalt make them princes * over all the earth. They shall remember thy name O Lord

Psalm 44 [3]44:1
(Unto the end, for them that shall be changed, for the sons of Core, for understanding. A canticle for the Beloved.)

44:2 My heart hath uttered a good word: I speak my works to the king: My tongue is the pen of a scrivener that writeth swiftly.
44:3 Thou art beautiful above the sons of men: grace is poured abroad in thy lips; therefore hath God blessed thee for ever.
44:4 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O thou most mighty.
44:5 With thy comeliness and thy beauty set out, proceed prosperously, and reign. Because of truth and meekness and justice: and thy right hand shall conduct thee wonderfully.
44:6 Thy arrows are sharp: under thee shall people fall, into the hearts of the king’s enemies.
44:7 Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a sceptre of uprightness.
44:8 Thou hast loved justice, and hated iniquity: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
44:9 Myrrh and stacte and cassia perfume thy garments, from the ivory houses: out of which

44:10 The daughters of kings have delighted thee in thy glory. The queen stood on thy right hand, in gilded clothing; surrounded with variety.
44:11 Hearken, O daughter, and see, and incline thy ear: and forget thy people and thy father’s house.
44:12 And the king shall greatly desire thy beauty; for he is the Lord thy God, and him they shall adore.
44:13 And the daughters of Tyre with gifts, yea, all the rich among the people, shall entreat thy countenance.
44:14 All the glory of the king’s daughter is within in golden borders,
44:15 Clothed round about with varieties. After her shall virgins be brought to the king: her neighbours shall be brought to thee.
44:16 They shall be brought with gladness and rejoicing: they shall be brought into the temple of the king.
44:17 Instead of thy fathers, sons are born to thee: thou shalt make them princes over all the earth.
44:18 They shall remember thy name throughout all generations. Therefore shall people praise thee for ever; yea, for ever and ever.

V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Ant. Thou shalt make them princes * over all the earth. They shall remember thy name O Lord

We come to thee O God, bearing in our hands our gifts for the King of Heaven

Posted on December 23, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Let everyone be struck with fear,
the whole world tremble,
and the heavens exult
when Christ, the Son of the living God,
is present on the altar
in the hands of a priest!

O wonderful loftiness and stupendous dignity!
O sublime humility! O humble sublimity!
The Lord of the universe, God and the Son of God,
so humbles Himself that He hides Himself for our salvation
under an ordinary piece of bread!

See the humility of God,
brothers,and pour out your hearts before Him!
Humble yourselves that you may be exalted by Him!
Hold back nothing of yourselves for yourselves,
that He Who gives Himself totally to you may receive you totally!
— St. Francis

***Pope Benedict XVI Encyclical «Deus Caritas Est»

«Mary gave thanks to the Lord»

Mary’s Magnificat—a portrait, so to speak, of her soul—is entirely woven from threads of Holy Scripture, threads drawn from the Word of God. Here we see how completely at home Mary is with the Word of God, with ease she moves in and out of it. She speaks and thinks with the Word of God; the Word of God becomes her word, and her word issues from the Word of God. Here we see how her thoughts are attuned to the thoughts of God, how her will is one with the will of God. Since Mary is completely imbued with the Word of God, she is able to become the Mother of the Word Incarnate. Finally, Mary is a woman who loves. How could it be otherwise? As a believer who in faith thinks with God’s thoughts and wills with God’s will, she cannot fail to be a woman who loves. We sense this in her quiet gestures, as recounted by the infancy narratives in the Gospel. We see it in the delicacy with which she recognizes the need of the spouses at Cana and makes it known to Jesus. We see it in the humility with which she recedes into the background during Jesus’ public life, knowing that the Son must establish a new family and that the Mother’s hour will come only with the Cross… At the hour of Pentecost, it will be the disciples who gather around her as they wait for the Holy Spirit (cf. Acts 1:14).
