I Trust in You

Sweet Heart of Jesus, I trust in You.
I trust in You for all, with all, in spite of all,
and forever.

O Mary, Mother of my Jesus,
keep me close to Jesus,
keep Jesus close to me.


Transform Me Into Yourself

O my Divine Savior, transform me into Yourself.
May my hands be the hands of Jesus.
May my tongue be the tongue of Jesus,
Grant that every faculty of my body
may serve only to glorify You.
Above all, transform my soul and all its powers,
that my memory, my will and my affections
may be the memory, the will and the affections of Jesus.
I pray You to destroy in me all that is not You.

Prayer to Our Lady of Lourdes

O Holy Mother, in the years 
following your appearance at Lourdes,
do not forget the sorrows of this earth.
Cast a merciful glance upon those 
who are suffering, struggling against difficulties,
with their lips constantly pressed 
against life’s bitter cup.
Have pity on those who love each other 
and are separated.
Have pity on our rebellious hearts.
Have pity on our weak faith.
Have pity on those who weep, 
on those who pray, on those who fear.
Grant hope and peace to all.


Sunday on Sanday

“A land lost in the mists of time” might reasonably describe Sanday, an eerily beautiful speck of land set in the Atlantic at the northern edge of Scotland’s Orkney Islands. Its strategic location astride ancient sea-lanes means it displays a wealth of archaeological remains, from Neolithic, Celtic and — most notably — Viking times.

Come Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your Faithful;
and enkindle in them the fire of Your love.
Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created,
and You shalt renew the face of the earth.

O God, who instructed the hearts of the faithful
by the light of the Holy Spirit,
grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise
and ever to rejoice in His consolation
through the same Christ our Lord.


From Real Estate Agent to Missionary

St. Verano is not one of those popular saints whose name trips off your tongue. The sixth century French hermit has all but been forgotten by most of the faithful, perhaps with the exception of churchgoers who attend a small church dedicated to his memory outside the Italian town of Pisa. However, when a Korean couple celebrated the arrival of their first-born forty-one years ago on October 19, they were in no doubt their infant son should be named in honor of the saint on whose feast day he was safely delivered into the world.

Prayer of St. Colette

Blessed Jesus,
I dedicate myself to You
in health, in illness,
in my life, in my death,
in all my desires, in all my deeds.
So that, I may never work
except for Your glory,
for the salvation of souls,
and for that which You have chosen me.
From this moment on, oh dearest Lord,
there is nothing which I am not prepared
to undertake for love of You.
