Oremus . Let us pray this every day The Golden Arrow Prayer

May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable,
most incomprehensible and unutterable Name of God
be always praised, blessed, loved, adored
and glorified in Heaven, on earth,
and under the earth,
by all the creatures of God,
and by the Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ,
in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.

Our Lord told Sister Marie de Saint-Piere on March 16, 1844,

"Oh, if you only knew what great merit you acquire by saying even once,
'Admirable is the name of God',
in the spirit of reparation of blasphemy!"
(say often)
Sister Marie prayers and promises given by Our Lord Jesus Christ :
1.By My Holy Face you shall work miracles.
2.By My Holy Face you will obtain the conversion of many sinners.
3.Nothing that you ask in making this offering will be refused to you.
4.If you knew how pleasing the sight of My Face is to My Father.
5.As in a kingdom you can procure all you wish for with coin marked with the King's effigy, so in the Kingdom of Heaven you will obtain all you desire with the Precious coin of My Holy Face.
6.Our Lord has promised me that He will imprint His divine likeness on the souls of those who honor his most holy Countenance.
7.All those who honor My Holy Face in a spirit of reparation, will be so doing perform the office of the pious Veronica.
8.According to the care you take in making reparation to My Face disfigured by blasphemies, so will I take care of yours which has been disfigured by sin. I will reprint therein My image and render it as beautiful as it was on leaving the Baptismal font.
9.Our Lord has promised me, that all those who defend His cause in this work of reparation, by words, by prayers, or in writing. He will defend them before His Father; at their death He will purify their souls by effacing all the blots of sin
and will restore to them their primitive beauty.

God bless you all , happy Sunday everyone !

Blessed Feast of Saint Augustine of Hippo

Saint Augustine is the Doctor of Grace. He was a genius, although a genius to God means nothing. However, a holy genius means everything to God's mystical body. Grace enabled him to become a great spiritual lover and teacher. His conversion reveals God's bountiful grace. One of his famous sayings is: "Lord, give me what you ask of me and ask me what you will."

He is called the Doctor of Grace because of his miraculous transformation out of sin to the service of God's creatures. He served the church in Africa for many years as bishop with genuine love. His mother, St Monica, never stopped praying for him; a great model.

Let us always find God in every moment of our lives and let us pray together with Saint Augustine this awesome prayer , pure expression of Divine Grace , Trust and Faith :

Great art Thou, O Lord, and greatly to be praised; great is Thy Power, and infinite is Thy Wisdom." And man desires to praise Thee, for he is a part of Thy Creation;
he bears his mortality about with him and carries the evidence of his sin and the proof that Thou dost resist the proud.
Still he desires to praise Thee, this man who is only a small part of Thy Creation.
Thou hast prompted him, that he should delight to praise Thee, for Thou hast made us for Thyself and restless is our heart until it comes to rest in Thee.
Grant me, O Lord, to know and understand whether first to invoke Thee or to praise Thee; whether first to know Thee or call upon Thee.
But who can invoke Thee, knowing Thee not?
For he who knows Thee not may invoke Thee as another than Thou art.
It may be that we should invoke Thee in order that we may come to know Thee.
But "how shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? Or how shall they believe without a preacher?"
Now, "they shall praise the Lord who seek Him," for "those who seek shall find Him," and, finding Him, shall praise Him.
I will seek Thee, O Lord, and call upon Thee.
I call upon Thee, O Lord, in my faith which Thou hast given me, which Thou hast inspired in me through the Humanity of Thy Son, and through the ministry of Thy preacher.Amen

Let us always remember the Poor Souls

Eternal Father, I offer You 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 in my family. Amen

Prayer for the Conversion of Scandinavia

300 Days, once a day. (See Instructions.) 54 Leo XIII, April 18, 1885.

O good Jesus , prostrate at Thy feet, we humbly implore Thee, by thy most Sacred Wounds and by the Precious Blood which Thou didst shed for the salvation of the whole world, that Thou wouldst deign to cast a look of pity on the peoples of Scandinavia, seduced from the Faith for so many centuries, and plunged in the darkness of heresy, separated from thy Church, deprived of the participation of the adorable Sacrament of thy Body and Blood, and of the other sacraments instituted by Thee, as the refuge of souls in life and in death.

Remember, O Redeemer of the world, that for these souls too Thou didst suffer bitter death, with the loss of all thy blood. Bring back, O good Shepherd, these wandering sheep ofthine to the one fold and to the healthy pastures of thy Church, so that they may form with us one flock , tended by Thee, and by thy Vicar on earth, the supreme Pontiff, whom, in the person of the Apostle St Peter, Thou didst commission to feed thy sheep and thy lambs. Graciously hear, O good Jesus, the prayers which we offer Thee with the most lively trust in the love of thy Sacred Heart, and to thy most Holy Name be praise, glory, and honor, world without end. Amen.
