SHE IS THE MOTHER OF NATIONS, THE QUEEN OF GLENCREE
Bring her your sins, and bring her your sorrow Mary will take them to Jesus for thee.

A PRAYER OF ENCOURAGEMENT 
Jesus, I thank you for not judging me by the mistakes I have made, but by the person I am
wanting to become, with the help of The Holy Spirit in giving Glory to the Father.
 
 
A PRAYER FOR COMMUNITY PROGRESS
Lord Jesus, Thank you for inviting us to be your disciples through Baptism.
We are sorry for our sins. Save us from the evil one.
Lead us all home to our Eternal loving Father,
Mary, our Blessed Mother, and all the angels, saints and sinners.
We wish all of us, especially those in most need of your mercy to share in the  honour and glory of God.
For we say this, because Your Word is true, despite what we may want to think, say or do.
 
Amen
 
Time
Do not look forward to the changes and chances of this life with fear.
Rather, look to them with full confidence, that as they arise, God to whom you belong will in His love enable you to profit by them.
He has guided and guarded you thus far in life. Do you but hold fast to His dear hand and He will lead you safely through all the trials.
Whenever you cannot stand, He will carry you lovingly in His arms.
Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow. The same Eternal Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day of your life.
Either He will shield you from suffering or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace then, and put aside all useless thoughts, all vain dreads andall anxious imaginations.
 
St. Francis de Sales(t567-r6zz)
 
 
God’s Promises
If God says he will always love you
– he will.
If he says he will never forget you
– he won’t.
If he says come to me and I will
give you rest – he will.
If he says he will never forsake you
– he won’t.
If he says he will always forgive you
– he will.
If he says you are his beloved child
– you are.
 
Fr. Paul

 

A PRAYER OF SORROW TO THE FATHER FOR MY SIN.
On my Eternal Father, Thank you for loving others and me through your Son, Jesus Christ.
I am sorry for my sin, for not being a witness and instrument of your Son’s love to others and myself, help me to live,
with the help of the Holy Spirit, so Jesus can be seen to love through me, as I have seen Your Love through Jesus.

Amen.

 

A PRAYER TO REMEMBER.
May He Support us all the day long Till the shades lengthen
And when the evencomes
And the busy world is hushed
And the fever of life is over
And the work is done.
then in His mercy
May He give us a safe lodging and holy rest
And a peace at last.

Amen.
