My YES to God the Father

This evening is a holy day of obligation for the feast of the Immaculate Conception.  Our Lady’s conception in the womb of St. Anne was also a great miracle as she was conceived without original sin.  Something to really meditate upon, she is a reflection of what we need to be throughout our Christian walk which is truly a very short journey indeed.

I want to share this poster image of what we are all called to be as we live the challenge of our Christian Faith, we are also Catholic Christians which means we are not alone as this is a Universal teaching that spreads to all the corners of the earth.  My prayers are with anyone who will meet this challenge and possibly go further in the walk to bring teaching to others. We are called to be apostles of Christ so that those called to spread this teaching will hear the call and not wait. Ask yourself are you being called to learn more about “Theology of the Body”?

This is truly a great GIFT given to us from our creator GOD the FATHER.  “Enjoy this creation, “The Pyramid of Intimacy” by our instructor Bill Donaghy.” (Quoted from –

Saint Hannah’s ~ Prayer for a Son

Hannah prayed for a child at the foot of the altar, and G-d heard the cry of her heart, sending her a son (Samuel) who would become a Jewish high-priest… Let us also remember our beloved priests today; knowing that one day we may have a son at the altar offering sacrifice for you and me.  

Thursdays are a day to remember our priests, I bet we could make a habit of this don’t you agree?

Prayer for Priests
by St. Therese of Lisieux

O Jesus, eternal Priest, 
keep your priests within 
the shelter of Your Sacred Heart, 
where none may touch them. 

Keep unstained their anointed hands, 
which daily touch Your Sacred Body. 

Keep unsullied their lips, 
daily purpled with your Precious Blood. 

Keep pure and unearthly their hearts, 
sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood. 

Let Your holy love surround them and 
shield them from the world’s contagion. 

Bless their labors with abundant fruit and 
may the souls to whom they minister be their 
joy and consolation here and in heaven their 
beautiful and everlasting crown.
