O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints,
your love for God and Charity for His creatures,
made you worthy, when on earth,
to possess miraculous powers.
Miracles waited on your word,
which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety.
Encouraged by this thought,
I implore of you to answer my prayers.

You filled Saint Barnabas with faith
and the Holy Spirit

and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

I Am Still Lucky

I have just completed three months of pastoral work. Every Saturday I went to the Hope Center in Myitkyina. It is where HIV/AIDS patients are cared for, and I met patients from different backgrounds, ethnicity and ages. Most of the patients in the center are males. I learned a lot from them, but I also encountered many difficulties.

Supreme Lord of the harvest,

for the growth of Your Church,
for peace and charity in our homes,
for salvation to all.

Amen.

and treat each other with the love of Christ for his Church.
May Mary and Joseph be our guides
and help us to find your peace and your grace.

O Most Holy Virgin Mother,
we listen with grief to the complaints
of your Immaculate Heart
surrounded with the thorns placed therein
at every moment by the blasphemies
and ingratitude of ungrateful humanity.
We are moved by the ardent desire of loving you as Our Mother
and of promoting a true devotion to your Immaculate Heart.

I adore You, Lord and creator,
hidden in the Blessed Sacrament.
I adore You for all the works of Your hands,
that reveal to me so much wisdom,
goodness and mercy, O Lord.
You have spread so much beauty over the earth,
and it tells me about Your beauty,
even though these beautiful things
are but a faint reflection of Your comprehensible Beauty.
