O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer you my prayers, works, joys, and suffering of this day in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world. I offer them for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart: the salvation of souls, reparation for sins, the reunion of all Christians; I offer them for the intentions of our Bishops and of all Apostles of Prayer and in particular for those recommended by our Holy Father this month.  AMEN.

And please, friends, say a prayer for my intentions and intention?

    The beautiful image is of Our Lady of Victory. I am fortunate to have her statue grace my mantel. The Venerable Father Nelson Baker presented the satute to my in-laws on their wedding day. My husband’s father had been raised in the Working Boys Home in Lackawanna New York. My husband went to heaven December 21st 2012 and I love her even more. Thanks for displaying this image of Mary which is seldom seen outside of France. (and the Victory Noll nuns)

    Oh Thou,
    most beautiful a woman
    most tender of all mothers
    most brilliant STAR of DAVID
    Masterpiece of God’s creation
    to the Holy Trinity
    most precious Pearl
    towards your Son the Golden Bridge
    Golden Gate
    to the Holy City
    thru which our Savior
    came and comes
    Most sacred Vessel
    containing the most Holy
    My soul,
    is drowning
    in the beauty of your eyes
    in the sweetness of your smile
    in the burning oven of your heart
    in the greatness of your littleness
    in the eloquence of your silence
    in the mystery of your simplicity
    Oh Thou,
    safest of my earthly havens
    dearest hiding-place of mine
    truly my refuge
    my sweetest, sweetest mother
    keep me with your Son Divine
    save me from the wordly evils
    strengthen my so fragile faith
    cover me
    with your motherly mantle
    Oh Mary, you most gentle
    Your child I am FOREVER !!!

    Bring flowers of the rarest
    bring blossoms the fairest,
    from garden and woodland and hillside and dale;
    our full hearts are swelling,
    our glad voices telling
    the praise of the loveliest flower of the vale!

    O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today!
    Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.
    O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today,
    Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May!

    1. ‘Tis the month of our Mother
    The blessed and beautiful days,
    When our lips and our spirits,
    are glowing with love and with praise.

    All Hail! to thee, dear Mary,
    the guardian of our way;
    To the fairest of Queens,
    Be the fairest of seasons, sweet May.

    2. Oh! what peace to her children,
    mid sorrows and trials to know,
    that the love of their Mother,
    Hath ever a solace for woe.

    3. And, what joy to the erring,
    The sinful and sorrowful soul;
    That a trust in her guidance,
    will lead to a glorious goal.

    4. Let us sing then, rejoicing,
    that God hath so honored our race,
    as to clothe with our nature,
    Sweet Mary, the Mother of Grace.

  6. johnnyDmunoz says:

    I pray for more Faith. And that I forgo sin so I can effectively help the Church.

  7. Hail Mary, full of grace.
    Our Lord is with thee.
    Blessed art thou among women,
    and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
    Holy Mary, Mother of God,
    pray for us sinners,
    now and at the hour of our death.

  8. johnnyDmunoz says:

    I ask for prayers for my friend in seminary, Paul. He is a good man and I am convinced he prays for me way more than I do for him.

  9. Liz says:

    I’m so glad you have this on your sidebar, Fr. Z. Thank you. I do always say a little prayer for you at the end so I’m glad you ask.

    In this month of September dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows, a poem.

    In shade of death’s sad tree stood doleful she.
    Ah, she, now by none other
    Name to be known, alas, but Sorrow’s Mother.
    Before her eyes,
    Hers, and the whole world’s joys,
    Hanging all torn she sees; and in His woes
    And pains, her pangs and throes:
    Each wound of His, from every part,
    All, more at home in her one heart.

    What kind of marble, then, is that cold man
    Who can look on and see,
    Nor keep such noble sorrows company?
    Sure, e’en from you
    (My flints) some drops are due,
    To see so many unkind swords contest
    So fast for one soft breast;
    While, with a faithful, mutual flood,
    Her eyes bleed tears, His wounds weep blood.
