Todays Word of God



First Reading

Daniel 7:2-14

'I saw, coming on the clouds of heaven, one like a son of man'

I, Daniel, have been seeing visions in the night. I saw that the four winds of heaven were stirring up the great sea; four great beasts emerged from the sea, each different from the other. The first was like a lion with eagle’s wings; and as I looked its wings were torn off, and it was lifted from the ground and set standing on its feet like a man; and it was given a human heart. The second beast I saw was different, like a bear, raised up on one of its sides, with three ribs in its mouth, between its teeth. “Up!” came the command “Eat quantities of flesh!” After this I looked, and saw another beast, like a leopard, and with four bird’s wings on its flanks; it had four heads, and power was given to it. Next I saw another vision in the visions of the night: I saw a fourth beast, fearful, terrifying, very strong; it had great iron teeth, and it ate, crushed and trampled underfoot what remained. It was different from the previous beasts and had ten horns.


While I was looking at these horns, I saw another horn sprouting among them, a little one; three of the original horns were pulled out by the roots to make way for it; and in this horn I saw eyes like human eyes, and a mouth that was full of boasts. As I watched:

Thrones were set in place

and one of great age took his seat.

His robe was white as snow,

the hair of his head as pure as wool.

His throne was a blaze of flames,

its wheels were a burning fire.

A stream of fire poured out,

issuing from his presence.

A thousand thousand waited on him,

ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him.

A court was held

and the books were opened.

The great things the horn was saying were still ringing in my ears, and as I watched, the beast was killed, and its body destroyed and committed to the flames. The other beasts were deprived of their power, but received a lease of life for a season and a time.

I gazed into the visions of the night.

And I saw, coming on the clouds of heaven,

one like a son of man.

He came to the one of great age

and was led into his presence.

On him was conferred sovereignty,

glory and kingship,

and men of all peoples, nations and languages became his servants.

His sovereignty is an eternal sovereignty

which shall never pass away,

nor will his empire ever be destroyed.




Responsorial Psalm

Daniel 3:75-81

Mountains and hills! bless the Lord.

Give glory and eternal praise to him!

Every thing that grows on the earth! bless the Lord.

Give glory and eternal praise to him!

Springs of water! bless the Lord.

Give glory and eternal praise to him!

Seas and rivers! bless the Lord.

Give glory and eternal praise to him!

Sea beasts and everything that lives in water! bless the Lord.

Give glory and eternal praise to him!

Birds of heaven! all bless the Lord.

Give glory and eternal praise to him!

Animals wild and tame! all bless the Lord.

Give glory and eternal praise to him!

Gospel

Luke 21:29-33

My words will never pass away

Jesus told his disciples a parable: ‘Think of the fig tree and indeed every tree. As soon as you see them bud, you know that summer is now near. So with you when you see these things happening: know that the kingdom of God is near. I tell you solemnly, before this generation has passed away all will have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.’

Thanks be to God


Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

The Rosary

Mary said

'I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.

The Rosary shall be a powerful armour against hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.'

The message of Our Blessed Mother,

“God's warning is over the world. Those who stay in the Lord have nothing to fear, but those who deny what comes from him do. Two-thirds of the world is lost and the other part must pray and make reparation for the Lord to take pity. The devil wants to have full domination over the earth. He wants to destroy. The earth is in great danger."


At Akita Mary said

“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres…churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.


Our Lady of Akita, as at Fatima, warns the world of a life divorced from God and what harm that can do even in the Church. Yet, even through a great crisis of faith, it is prayer, penance and trust that will save humanity.


Are these messages true? All one needs to do is look at the world today, the state of the Church the rejection of God, the undermining of His Holy Word - enough said.


“Do not say, ‘His mercy is great; my many sins he will forgive.’ For mercy and anger alike are with him; his wrath comes to rest on the wicked. Do not delay turning back to the LORD, do not put it off day after day. For suddenly his wrath will come forth; at the time of vengeance, you will perish.” (Sirach 5:4-7).


Mary told us to renew devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, the importance of saying the Rosary every day. This column therefore will contain Adoration, the Rosary, the Holy Word of God and prayer. This in all humility but with the grace of God we will seek to do.



Divine Mercy


“True greatness of the soul

is in loving God and in humility”


Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska:

Divine Mercy in My Soul

For the Sake of His Sorrowful Passion

have mercy on us and on the whole world

Prayer to St Michael


Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in our hour of conflict. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.


Each day we end with a Fatima prayer


The Pardon Prayer


My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love Thee!

I ask pardon for those who do not believe,

do not adore, do not hope and do not love Thee.



Evening Prayer


The Prayer for Daily Neglects




A Poor Clare nun who had just died, appeared to her Abbess, who was praying for her, and said to her, "I went straight to Heaven, for, by means of this prayer, recited every evening, I paid all my debts." It is known as 'the Prayer for Daily Neglects' and invites us to offer to God the Father the Heart of his Divine Son as we read below in reparation of our sins.



Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Sacred Heart of Jesus, with all its love, all its sufferings and all its merits:


To expiate all the sins I have committed this day and during all my life.


Glory be ....


To purify the good I have done badly this day and during all my life.


Glory be......


To supply for the good I ought to have done, and that I have neglected this day and during all my life.


Glory be .....
