Morning Prayers for wb 28 September 2020

Tuesday 29 September 2020.
Today is the Feast Day of Saints Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, Archangels. Angels are created beings of God and live in the presence of God. At important times in the history of God saving humanity, the Archangels have been given key roles in bringing an awareness of God’s will to people and to bring assurance of God’s love and protection for all.

We pray today that through God’s Holy Angels we will be confident in responding to God in our lives.

St Jerome lived across the end of the Fourth Century and the beginning of the Fifth Century. A great writer and teacher, perhaps his greatest achievement was the translating of the Bible into Latin. This brought everyone a step nearer to being able to access and read the Word of God.

God speaks to humanity and to each person through the Bible. To deepen our understanding of God and his call for us, we should try and include reading the Bible on a daily basis as part of our pattern of prayer. There are many online sites which give short passages for each day of the year.

We ask Mary, our Mother, to pray with us for our intentions.

Last year, Scotland was given a great blessing with the visit of the relics of St Therese of Lisieux, whose Feast we celebrate today. Therese wanted to be a holy person and be a saint but she felt that this was too great a task for her. However, she did not allow herself to be put off and devoted herself to her little way. In doing little things out of love of God, Therese grew in holiness and indeed soon after her death was proclaimed a Saint.

From St Therese we learn how we can be holy. Whatever, we do either great or small we do and offer our actions to God. In this way we will change ourselves and begin to change our World.

Hail Mary……

When you read about the lives of saints it is clear that prayer is very important for holiness. In prayer we spent time with God. Each Friday you have the opportunity to spend time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in Eucharistic Adoration from 12.20 to 1.00pm in the Oratory. We would encourage you to give a few minutes of your Friday Lunchtime and spend in quiet prayer in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.

Hail Mary….
