Our Lady in Paradise

 

Mary is the lily in God’s garden.

– Bridget of Sweden

For Vocations

Jesus, the harvest is still great. It is a worldwide harvest of many colours, of many songs and many dreams.

Call labourers to gather the harvest for you. Grant the blessing of courage to follow you, and the grace to share your love with all the world.

Amen.

Mary, Mother of God, and my mother . . . .  stand by me in my time of need.

Through your intercession, fortify me in times of pain and trouble. Illuminate the darkness of my fear. Shower me with the graces necessary to endure and overcome.

Through the love your Son has shown for each and every one of His children, I ask you, my mother to assist me, console me and renew my faith in his healing.

Amen

Child Jesus in the Tabernacle

And just as He appeared before the holy Apostles in true flesh, so now He has us see Him in the Sacred Bread. Looking at Him with the eyes of their flesh, they saw only His Flesh, but regarding Him with the eyes of the spirit, they believed that He was God. In like manner, as we see bread and wine with our bodily eyes, let us see and believe firmly that it is His Most Holy Body and Blood, True and Living.
For in this way our Lord is ever present among those who believe in him, according to what He said: “Behold, I am with you all days even to the consummation of the world.” (Mt. 28, 20)

Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal

 She then said, “Have a medal struck upon this model. Those who wear it will receive great graces, especially if they wear it around the neck. Graces will be abundant for those who pray with confidence.”

We should also remember that, if there was a “miraculous cure”, it was God Who performed the miracle in honour of His Mother in order to invite us to go to Her, to pick up the Rosary and to pray to our Queen more fervently than ever.

St. Jude, Patron Saint of the Impossible

St. Jude Thaddeus was one of the twelve Apostles chosen by Jesus Christ. Because he has the same name as the traitor, people were slow to ask his help. He didn’t mind being left in the shadows – and now is the special patron of all who feel left in the shadows.
