Holy Mother Mary,
we all rejoice with you today
on the feast of your glorious Assumption into heaven.
You have been taken up body and soul into heaven.
There, with your Divine Son,
you await our coming,
and prepare a place for us.
it is a great comfort to us to realize that your precious body,
the tabernacle of the infant Christ,
Holy Mother Mary,
Be the King, O Lord,
not only of the faithful who have never forsaken You,
but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned You,
grant that they may quickly return to their Father's house,
lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.
Oh Dear Jesus,
we are so far away from Your most pure and Sacred Heart.
As a family we need Your help.
Heal all the quarrels that exist
in our family due to our unforgiveness
and lack of love for You.
Heal our unbelieving and unconverted hearts
and lead us to Your Sacred Heart with love.
Unite us as a family
I am Peter, and I am a third year student at Columban Fr. Neil Magill's Higher Education Center [HEC] in Mandalay, Myanmar (formerly Burma). We get two weeks holiday during the academic year, but most of the 90 students at the HEC cannot go home. Our homes are so far away from Mandalay, and it is too expensive to travel. It can take two days to reach homes in remote villages. Fr.
O Immaculate Mother,
lead us to Heaven,
inflame us with the Divine Love,
let shine upon us that same light of glory
which You behold forever!
Let us see What You see and gaze upon Him in Trinity,
that we may share the fullness of Your Heart’s joy forever!
Let it be!
Most sweet Jesus,
Redeemer of the human race,
look down upon us,
humbly prostrate before Your altar.
We are Yours and Yours we wish to be;
but to be more surely united with You,
behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today
to Your Most Sacred Heart.
Oh most Sacred Heart of Jesus,
we come to you as a family
and consecrate ourselves to Your Sacred Heart.
Protect us through Your Most Precious Blood
and keep us pure and holy.
Loving Mary, Mother of Jesus and our mother too.
Thank you for always saying yes to God’s call.
We praise Jesus, the fruit of your yes.
Bless all women who are with child.
Help them see the great gift they carry.
May their response like yours be a yes to life.
"The children, the young children, we have to do something about the children, they are at risk." Warmi Huasi is a small civil association (NGO) I set up with others twelve years ago to accompany families, and especially children at risk, who live in situations of poverty. The name Warmi Huasi comes from the Indian Quechua language meaning "Women´s House."
O Mary, Mary more beautiful than all creatures,
lovely after Jesus above all loves,
more dear than all created things,
gracious above every grace,
pity this miserable heart of mine;
miserable because it does not love you;
and it ought to love you.
You can inflame it with you holy love.
Turn, O Mary, your loving eyes upon me;
