PRAYER & DEVOTIONS

     In honor of Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, we present the Opening Prayer from the Daily Mass:

Lord, pour out on us the riches of the Spirit which You bestowed on St. Margaret Mary. May we come to know the love of Christ, which surpasses all human understanding, and be filed with the fullness of God.

      To commemorate the Feast of Saint Luke, we present the Preface from the Mass on this day which today is pre-empted by the Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time:

You have willed that the mysteries of Christ Your Son, the source of redemption and of life, should be made known through the Sacred Scriptures by the work of men illumined by the Holy Spirit. Thus the words and deeds of the Savior, recorded in the immortal pages of the gospel, were consigned to the Church and became the fertile seed that throughout the centuries produces fruits of grace and glory.


PROVERB OF THE DAY

"The trustworthy man will be richly blessed; he who is in haste to grow rich will not go unpunished."

Proverbs 28: 20
