PRAYERS & DEVOTION

     In honor of the one-year anniversary commemorating the death of Mother Teresa we present this special prayer composed by Mother Teresa which every member of the Missionaries of Charity say before beginning their apostolate each day:

Dear Lord, the Great Healer, I kneel before You, Since every perfect gift must come from You. I pray, give skill to my hands, clear vision to my mind, kindness and meekness to my heart. Give me singleness of purpose, strength to lift up a part of the burden of my suffering fellow men, and a true realization of the privilege that is mine. Take from my heart all guile and worldliness, that with the simple faith of a child, I may rely on You.


August 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Today I invite you to come still closer to me through prayer. Little children, I am your mother, I love you and I desire that each of you be saved and thus be with me in Heaven. That is why, little children, pray, pray, pray until your life becomes prayer. Thank you for having responded to my call.
