  • OUR LADY OF WALSINGHAM

  • PRAYER FOR ENGLAND

    We come to you, most holy Virgin. We are children of England, your dowry. Keep us faithful to the Gospel of Jesus your Son. Keep us in the unity of the Catholic faith and the power of hope.

    Mother of love, protect all the families of England. Help them to stay together. Give them the happiness of loving and passing on life.

    You are the Mother of Christ, our Saviour. Open our hearts to people who are suffering. May each of us offer signs of friendship and welcome to people who are less well off than us.

    Faithful Virgin, help us in our lives. Help us to choose the way in life that Jesus wants us to follow. May we face the problems of life today, together with people of other Churches and religions.

    You praised the great things done by the Lord. You sang about how God kept his promises to the people of Israel. We bless you because you believed in the Word of God and in his Love which lasts for ever and ever.

    Amen.

    Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

  • “From the age of fifteen, dogma has been the fundamental principle of my religion: I know no other religion; I cannot enter into the idea of any other sort of religion; religion, as a mere sentiment, is to me a dream and a mockery.” Blessed John Henry Newman.

A life-size replica of the bedroom of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta has been created in the church of St Patrick’s, Soho, central London.

This shows the pictures by her bed, and the boxes in which – til the end of her life – she distributed post for each of the sisters in the house where Mother Teresa lived in Calcutta.

It is part of a free exhibition about the life and message of Mother Teresa. Mother Teresa, Life, Spirituality Message opened this week, after a special Mass at St Patrick’s on Monday night. This was concelebrated by the Papal Nuncio to England, Archbishop Antonio Mennini.

The Lord’s Prayer: I cannot say…

Lord Howe Island

Lord Howe Island (Photo credit: Robert Whyte http://www.arachne.org.au).

I cannot say…..
Our” – if I live only for myself.
Father” – if I do not endeavor each day to act like his child.
Who art in heaven” – if I am laying up no treasure there.
Hallowed be thy name” – if I am not striving for holiness.
Thy Kingdom come” – if I am not doing all in my power to hasten that wonderful event.
Thy will be done” – if I am disobedient to his Word.
On earth as it is in heaven” – if I do not serve him here and now.
Give us this day our daily bread” – if I am dishonest or am seeking things by subterfuge.
Forgive us our debts” – if I harbor a grudge against anyone.
Lead us not into temptation” – if I deliberately place myself in its path.
Deliver us from evil” – if I do not put on the whole armor of God.
Thine is the kingdom” – if I do not give the King the loyalty due him from a faithful subject.
The power” – if I fear what men may do.
The glory” – if I’m seeking honor only for myself, and
Forever” – if the horizon of my life is completely bounded by time.

I found this interpretation here: The Lord’s Prayer
