Holy Souls in Purgatory~Prayer of Saint Gertrude the Great

We pray for the Holy Souls
our departed brothers and sisters
the purification of whose souls
will end their suffering
as the most powerful intercession
of our Holiest of Mothers
is mercifully answered...
"Eternal Father I offer Thee 
The Most Precious Blood
of Thy Divine Son, Jesus
in union with the Masses said 
throughout the world today
for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory
for sinners everywhere
for sinners in the universal Church
for those in my own home and within my family."
Prayer of Saint Gertrude the Great

Saint Jude~Gratitude

The gift of love
The gift of gratitude
"May the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, 
and loved in all the tabernacles 
until the end of time. Amen.
May the most Sacred Heart of Jesus 
be praised and glorified now and forever.
St. Jude pray for us and hear our prayers. 
Blessed be the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Blessed be the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Blessed be St. Jude Thaddeus, 

in all the world and for all Eternity."

Revealed by His Spirit

But, as it is written: 
That eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, 
neither hath it entered into the heart of man, 
what things God hath prepared for them that love him.  
But to us God hath revealed them, by this Spirit. 
For the Spirit searcheth all things, 
yea, the deep things of God.
1 Corinthians 2:9-10

weight of grief

when the weight of grief
fractures the spirit
a fruit of prayer
is the angelic song 
that lifts our hearts to Heaven

growing forward

dreams bountifully realized

For this my heart hath been glad
and my tongue hath rejoiced
moreover my flesh shall also rest
in hope.
Acts of the Apostles 2:26

your joy may be filled

These things have I spoken to you
that my joy may be in you, 
and your joy may be filled.
 This is my commandment, 
that you love one another, as I have loved you.
Greater love than this no man hath, 
that a man lay down his life for his friends.
John 15:11-13

to join her

I can always count on Our Blessed Mother 
For comfort, reassurance and  wisdom
She fills me with the grace 
To decide, to endure, to wait, to rejoice
Welcoming me to join her
Within the heart of Jesus
