You formed us in your own likeness and set us over the whole world to serve you, our Creator, and to rule over all creatures.

Again and again You offered a covenant to us, and through the prophets taught us to hope for salvation. -Father, You so loved the world that in the fullness of time you sent your only Son to be our Savior.

ST. JOSEPH - Ever blessed and glorious Joseph, kind and loving father, and helpful friend of all in sorrow! You are the good father and protector of orphans, the defender of the defenseless, the patron of those in need and sorrow. Look kindly on my request. My sins have drawn down on me the just displeasure of my God, and so I am surrounded with unhappiness. To you, loving guardian of the Family of Nazareth, do I go for help and protection. Listen, then, I beg you, with fatherly concern, to my earnest prayers, and obtain for me the favors I ask. I ask it by the infinite mercy of the eternal Son of God, which moved Him to take our nature and to be born into this world of sorrow. I ask it by the weariness and suffering you endured when you found no shelter at the inn of Bethlehem for the holy Virgin, nor a house where the Son of God could be born. Then, being everywhere refused, you had to allow the Queen of Heaven to give birth to the world's Redeemer in a cave. I ask it by that painful torture you felt at the prophecy of holy Simeon, which declared the Child Jesus and His holy Mother future victims of our sins and of their great love for us. I ask it through your sorrow and pain of soul when the angel declared to you that the life of the Child Jesus was sought by His enemies. From their evil plan you had to flee with Him and His Blessed Mother to Egypt. I ask it by all the suffering, weariness, and labors of that long and dangerous journey. I ask it by all your care to protect the Sacred Child and His Immaculate Mother during your second journey, when you were ordered to return to your own country. I ask it by your peaceful life in Nazareth where you met with so many joys and sorrows. I ask it by your great distress when the adorable Child was lost to you and His Mother for three days. I ask it by your joy at finding Him in the Temple, and by the comfort you found at Nazareth, while living in the company of the Child Jesus. I ask it by the wonderful submission He showed in His obedience to you. I ask it by the perfect love and conformity you showed in accepting the Divine order to depart from this life, and from the company of Jesus and Mary. I ask it by the joy which filled your soul, when the Redeemer of the world, triumphant over death and hell, entered into the possession of His kingdom and led you into it with special honors. I ask it through Mary's glorious Assumption, and through that endless happiness you have with her in the presence of God. O good father! I beg you, by all your sufferings, sorrows, and joys, to hear me and obtain for me what I ask. (make your request) Obtain for all those who have asked my prayers everything that is useful to them in the plan of God. Finally, my dear patron and father, be with me and all who are dear to me in our last moments, that we may eternally sing the praises of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. - Father, all powerful and ever-living God, we do well and always give you thanks as we honor Saint Joseph. He is that just man, that wise and loyal servant, whom you chose as the head of the Holy Family. With a husband's love he cherished Mary, the virgin Mother of God. With fatherly care he watched over Jesus Christ your Son, conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit. Blessed foster-father of Jesus, extend to us the same tender care with which you protected Jesus and Mary that we may walk securely in the path of salvation. Obtain for us strong faith, ardent love and zeal in doing good. Saint Joseph, be our patron and intercessor with God. Implore for us a great purity of heart, a lively faith, firm hope and perfect charity.Help us in all our needs of soul and body but most of all in the hour of our death. Come to us then with Jesus and Mary and let us die in their love and with the help of your prayers. Glorious Saint Joseph, powerful protector of the Holy Church, let us implore your heavenly aid for the whole Church on earth, especially for the Holy Father, all the bishops, priests and religious. St. Joseph, you rescued the Child Jesus from the peril of His life, defend God's Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity. Shield also each one of us by your constant protection, so that, supported by your example and your aid, we may live a holy life, die, a happy death and attain everlasting happiness in heaven. Guide and help all government officials, comfort the afflicted, and console the dying, and convert sinners. Have pity on all who have died especially members of our families and friends. Allow them to join you and the saints in the praise and glory of God. Amen.
BLESSED VIRGIN MARY We turn to you for protection, holy Mother of God. Listen to our prayers and help us in our needs. Save us from every danger, glorious and blessed Virgin. Oh blessed Virgin, pray to God for us always, that He may pardon us and give us grace, pray to God for us always, that He may grant us peace in this life pray to God for us always, that He may reward us with paradise at our death. AMEN Let intercession be made for us, we beseech You, O Lord, now and at the hour of our death, before the throne of Your Mercy, by the Blessed Virgin Mary, Your Mother, whose most holy soul was pierced by a sword of sorrow in the hour of Your bitter passion. Through You, O Lord Jesus Christ, Savior of the World, Who with the Father and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns world without end. Amen.
PRAYER IN TIME OF SUFFERING Behold me, my beloved Jesus, weighed down under the burden of my trials and sufferings, I cast myself at Your feet,that You may renew my strength and my courage,while I rest here in Your Presence. Permit me to lay down my cross in Your Sacred Heart,for only Your infinite goodness can sustain me;only Your love can help me bear my cross; only Your powerful hand can lighten its weight.O Divine King, Jesus,whose heart is so compassionate to the afflicted,I wish to live in You;suffer and die in You. During my life be to me my model and my support; At the hour of my death, be my hope and my refuge. Amen.
IN TIME OF NEED Heavenly Father, in my present need, help me to believe that you are a wave of my anxiety and will do what is best for me. Give me the strength to trust you and put the present and future in your hands. Grant this through Christ, our Lord, with the Holy Spirit. Amen.

We may be afraid of the unknown and want to remain in our comfort zone. Our fear may be a result of judging experiences as being bad or negative.

Mary will raise up apostles of the latter times to make war against the evil one.... But the power of Mary over all the devils will especially shine forth in the latter times, when Satan will lay his snares against her heel: that is to say, her humble slaves and poor children, whom she will raise up to make war against him. They shall be little and poor in the world's esteem, and abased before all like the heel, trodden underfoot and persecuted as the heel is by other members of the body. But in return for this they shall be rich in the grace of God, which Mary shall distribute to them abundantly. They shall be great and exalted before God in sanctity, Superior to all creatures by their lively zeal, and so well sustained with God's assistance that, with the humility of their heel, in union with Mary, they shall crush the head of the devil and cause Jesus Christ to triumph. ~St. Louis de Montfort
"The mercies of the Lord are never exhausted; the mercies of the Lord are never spent; but they are *new* each morning. Great is Thy faithfulness!" (Lam 3:22)
Trust the Church of God! "Trust the Church of God implicitly even when your natural judgment would take a different course from hers and would induce you to question her prudence or correctness. Recollect what a hard task she has; how she is sure to be criticized and spoken against, whatever she does; recollect how much she needs your loyal and tender devotion; recollect, too, how long is the experience gained over so many centuries, and what a right she has to claim your assent to principles which have had so extended and triumphant a trial. Thank her that she has kept the faith safe for so many generations and do your part in helping her to transmit it to generations after you." (John Henry Newman)
VENI, SANCTE SPIRITUS! COME, HOLY SPIRIT! Fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in us the fire of your Love. Send forth your Spirit and there shall be a new creation. And You will renew the face of the earth! Amen.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control....if we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit." (Gal 5: 22, 23 25)

"Perfection is founded entirely on the love of God: 'Charity is the bond of perfection;' and perfect love of God means the complete union of our will with God's." -St. Alphonsus
THE MOST SACRED MYSTERY OF THE EUCHARIST~ "At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Saviour instituted the eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the Cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a paschal banquet in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us." (Sacrosanctum Concilium, article 47)
Prayer to Saint Raphael. O Raphael, lead us toward those we are waiting for, those who are waiting for us: Raphael, Angel of happy meeting, lead us by the hand toward those we are looking for. May all our movements be guided by your Light and transfigured with your joy. Angel, guide of Tobias, lay the request we now address to you at the feet of Him on whole unveiled Face you are privileged to gaze. Lonely and tired, crush by the separations and sorrows of life, we feel the need of calling you and of pleading for the protection of your wings, so that we may not be as strangers in the province of joy, all ignorant of the concerns of our country. Remember the weak, you who are strong, you whose home lies beyond the region of thunder, in a land that is always peaceful, always serene and bright with the resplendent glory of God. Amen.
"We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed." (2 Cor. 4:8-9)
YOU ARE CHRIST.... You are Christ, my Holy Father, my Tender God, my Great King, my Good Shepherd, my Only Master, my Best Helper, my Most Beautiful and my Beloved, my Living Bread, my Priest Forever, my Leader to my Country, my True Light, my Holy Sweetness, my Straight Way, my Excellent Wisdom, my Pure Simplicity, my Peaceful Harmony, my Entire Protection, my Good Portion, my Everlasting Salvation. Christ Jesus, Sweet Lord, why have I ever loved, why in my whole life have I ever desired anything except You, Jesus my God? Where was I when I was not in spirit with You? Now, from this time forth, do you, all my desires, grow hot, and flow out upon the Lord Jesus: run . . . you have been tardy until now; hasten where you are going; seek Whom you are seeking. O, Jesus may he who loves You not be an anathema; may he who loves You not be filled with bitterness. O, Sweet Jesus, may every good feeling that is fitted for Your praise, love You, delight in You, adore You! God of my heart, and my Portion, Christ Jesus, may my heart faint away in spirit, and may You be my Life within me! May the live coal of Your Love grow hot within my spirit and break forth into a perfect fire; may it burn incessantly on the altar of my heart; may it glow in my innermost being; may it blaze in hidden recesses of my soul; and in the days of my consummation may I be found consummated with You! Amen. ~St. Augustine of Hippo
I just wanted to share this with all of you. A priest started off his sermon by holding up a $20.00 bill. In the congregation of 200 he asked, "Who would like this $20 bill? Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give it to someone, but first let me do this." He proceeded to crumple the bill up. He then asked, "Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air. Well, he replied, "What if I do this?" And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now who still wants it?" Still the hands went into the air. "My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20." Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what happens to you, you will never lose your value: dirty or clean crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to God, Who loves you. The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or whom we know, but by WHO WE ARE as God's children. You are special - Don't EVER forget it. If you do not pass this on, you may never know the lives it touches or the hurting hearts that it can bring comfort to. Count your blessings, not your problems. Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that amateurs built the Ark. Professionals built the Titanic.
I HAVE A GIVING NATURE: Do you have a giving nature? Do you give to others? Having a giving nature ensures you of your receiving. You reap what you sow. Therefore, when you give of your time, talent and money to others, it will come back to you blessed and multiplied. When you give to others you are giving of and to yourself. I have a giving nature. I am generous with my time, talent and money. Whenever I give, I give unconditionally from my heart. I am a giving person. Thanks, God. And So It IS! "Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all men, especially to those who belong to the household of faith." Galatians 6:10 Rich Blessings to you and yours. ES
