Confession of Saint Patrick

St_Patrick 17th March www.thecalltofatima.comConfession of Saint Patrick

“I, Patrick, a sinner, am the most uncultivated and the least of all the faithful, and am held in contempt by many. Yet, though I am imperfect in many things I wish my brethern to know what manner of man I am, that they may be able to understand the desire of my soul: to render somewhat to the Lord for His so great benefits.

…I was brought captive to Ireland- I was at that time about sixteen years of age and I paid no heed to the living God. I was brought captive with so many thousands of persons according to our deserts, because we turned away from God and kept not His Commandments, and were not obedient to His priests, who admonished us about our salvation.

I was as a stone lying in a deep mire but He that is mighty came and in His mercy lifted me, and indeed raised me up again and placed me on the top of the wall.

In the land of my captivity I sought Him in earnest- and there I found Him. The love of God and the fear of Him increased more and more, and my faith grew. In a single day I prayed as often as a hundred times, and by night almost as frequently, even while I was in the woods and on the mountain.

…But He knows that exceedingly do I desire to drink of His chalice- yet may it never happen to me from my God that I should ever lose His people…

I beseech whosoever shall have deigned to look at this document, which Patrick, the sinner, unlearned as is manifest, wrote in Ireland.

Let no one ever say that it was I in my ignorance who did whatever little I have done or taught, that is pleasing to God. Let it be most truly believed that it was the gift of God. And this is my confession before I die”.

Prayer to St Patrick, Patron Saint of Ireland St Patrick's Day shamrock www.thecalltofatima.com

Most glorious Saint Patrick,
Bishop and Confessor,
chosen by the Almighty to be the Apostle of Ireland,
we, the children of those to whom you preached the Faith of Christ,
never to be renounced,
hail you as the wonderful instrument of God’s mercy
for the obtaining of our eternal salvation.

Most glorious Apostle and Patron of our island,
submit to the Almighty our every temporal and spiritual want,
that through your intercession,
we may be relieved, in all our necessities through life,
and when called from this world to the glory of God,
we may, to your honour,
be found worthy of the faith that is within us,
and of eternal salvation.
Through Christ our Lord.

                                                Amen.

Prayer for Christian Unity

PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY

God of compassion,
you have loved and forgiven us in Christ,
and sought to reconcile the entire human race
in that redeeming love.
Look with favour upon us,
who work and pray
for the unity of divided Christian communities.
Grant us the experience of being brothers and sisters in your love.
We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever. Amen.

“Pray the Rosary every day!” asked Our Lady in Fatima

Sister Lucia was asked by Our Lady of Fatima to pray the Rosary every day![During the very first apparition, on 13th May, 1917, Our Lady asked: “Pray the Rosary every day!” , and this request was to be repeated by her every month until October.

So, calling to mind the insistence with which God, by means of the Fatima Message, recommends the prayer of the Rosary, and also all that the Church’s Magisterium has said about it over the years, we can conclude that the Rosary is a form of vocal prayer which, in general, suits all of us, for which we should have the highest regard, and which we should make the greatest effort never to abandon…

I assure you that the Rosary is a biblical prayer and that it is part of the sacred Liturgy

The saying of the Rosary is the form of prayer which has been most recommended by all the Popes who served the Church in recent centuries.

His Holiness John Paul II expressed his intimate feelings, and his way of living the prayer of the Rosary in these words of 29th October, 1978: “A prayer marvellous in its simplicity and in its depth! In this prayer, we repeat over and over again the words which the Virgin Mary heard from the Archangel and from her cousin Elizabeth. The whole Church joins in these words. (…) At the same time our heart can include in these decades of the Rosary all the events which go to make up the life of the individual, the family, the nation, the Church, and the whole of humanity. Thus the simple prayer of the Rosary marks the rhythm of human life.(…) A prayer which is so simple and so rich! I cordially exhort all to pray it”. ]

This fragment is taken from the book “Calls from the Message of Fatima” written by Sister Lucia, page 270

What is your testimony regarding a prayer of the Rosary? We would like to hear your thoughts. Please share a Message of Hope.

Prayer.Sacrifice.Union.

“Pray and make sacrifices so that our whole life may be a holocaust offered to God on the arms of our day-to-day cross, in union with the Cross of Christ, for the salvation of souls, co-operating with Him in his redemptive work as members of his Mystical Body, the Church, which works, prays and suffers in intimate union with its Head for the redemption of humanity.”

Sister Lucia,  page 103 book “Calls from the Message of Fatima”
