Pray for us that we will listen to the Gospel of Jesus and share it with others.
Glory be to the…
Jesus said, “Do not judge so that you will not be judged. Why do you see the speck in your brother’s eye, but fail to see the beam of wood in your own?” (Matthew 7:1, 3)
A good day is when we act fairly and behave humbly!
Lord Jesus, I celebrate the many gifts and graces that you have bestowed on me and pray that today, I will use them wisely to help build your Kingdom.
Prayer: Temptation (St Alphonsus)
Mary, my Mother,
your love for us could not be more greater or more powerful.
You are rich in love and your power brings us relief.
You want everyone to be saved.
I beg you, therefore, protect me in temptation and strengthen me when I weaken.
I struggle daily to be faithful to your Son.
Help me, my Mother, at every moment.
But above all, take me by the hand when you see that I am weakening and about to fall.
I will have to battle with temptation until the day I die.
My Lady, you are my hope, my refuge, my strength, never let me lose the grace of God.
In every temptation, I resolve to turn to you at once and pray; Mary help me.
