Prayer for Priests

Just would like to share this prayer with you, as our priests are really in need of prayers. Thanks and blessings to you all.

Prayer for Priests

O Jesus,
I pray for your faithful and fervent priests;
for your unfaithful and tepid priests;
for your priests laboring at home or abroad in distant mission fields.
For your tempted priests;
For your lonely and desolate priests;
For your young priests;
For your dying priests;
For the souls of your priests in Purgatory.
But above all, I recommend to you the priests dearest to me:
The priest who baptized me;
The priests who absolved me from my sins;
The priests at whose Masses I assisted 
And who gave me Your Body and Blood in Holy Communion;
The priests who taught and instructed me;
All the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way
(especially …)
O Jesus, keep them all close to your heart,
And bless them abundantly in time and in eternity.

To the morning glory

To the morning glory flowers,

That I, the spirit
May grow happy and blooming
As you are
Even in the midst
Of a rainy soul...

What's forever for?

Lately, I've seen a lot of broken relationships. Guess this is the perfect song for where we are at... (though of course this is only true for some.) Please find below the lyrics, internalize it if you may. 

Sung by Billy Gilman

I've been looking at people
And how they change with the times
And lately all I've been seein' of people
Throwin' love away and losing their minds

Or maybe it's me that's gone crazy
Cause I can't understand why
All these people keep hurting each other
When good love is so hard to come by

So what's the glory in livin'
Doesn't anybody ever stay together anymore
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me, what's forever for

Well I've been listening to people 
And they say love is the key
It's not my way to let them lead me astray
It's only that I want to believe

But I see love-hungry people
Trying their best to survive
While in their hands is a dying romance
And they don't even try to keep it alive

So what's the glory in livin'
Doesn't anybody ever stay together anymore
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me, what's forever for

And if love never lasts forever
Tell me, what's forever for

Rosary in the street

I was surfing the net for quotations on the Holy Rosary when I found this one from St Escriva.

"You always leave the Rosary for later, and you end up not saying it at all because you are sleepy. 
If there is no other time, say it in the street without letting anybody notice it. 
It will, moreover, help you to have presence of God." 
~ St. Josemaria Escriva ~
I felt happy to have stumbled on this one. I am affirmed by this line... Indeed I am growing in consciousness of the presence of God.  ^_^

St Josemaria Escriva, pray for us.

God bless and have a beautifully blooming day, everyone!

Happy wedding anniversary!

I greeted my mom on 1 August 'Happy anniversary!' She responded with a laugh and a question, 'how can it be happy when I am alone?'

It was their wedding anniversary. But I just told her that it is 'happy' still as you continue with your life and papa in the seemingly other world... ;)
hmmm... how do they celebrate anniversaries in heaven?
