Mothers’ Day! 12 May – Mothers’ Day Prayer to Mary, our Mother

Mother’s Day! 12 May and Mary’s Month

Wishing all Mothers a Blessed and Happy Mothers’ Day

May Mary, the Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ

and our Mother, be a comfort to us all.

Mothers’ Day Prayer
to Mary, our Mother
Intercessions from 1727 the Liturgical Order of Blessing

Mary,
Mother of God
and our Mother,
pray for all mothers,
so that they will be able
to fulfill their maternal responsibilities.
Help them to be lovers and nurturers of
all human life from the moment of conception
until natural death,
all the while being examples
for their own children.
Pray for their children,
so that they, too,
will be faithful followers of your Son.
We pray for our mothers,
who have given us life and love,
that we may show them reverence and love.
We pray for mothers,
who have lost a child through death,
that their faith may give them hope
and their family and friend,
support and console them.
We pray for mothers who have died,
that God may bring them
into the joy of His kingdom
We offer these prayers
through Christ, our Lord
and your Son,
in union with the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever.

Appeal Update – 17 April

“Would that I could exhaust myself,
in acts of thanksgiving and gratitude,
towards this Divine Heart,
for the great favour He shows us,
in deigning to accept our help,
to make Him known, loved and honoured.
He reserves infinite blessings for all those
who devote themselves to this work.”

St Margaret Mary Alacoque (1647-1690)appeal - would that i could exhaust myself - st margaret mary alacoque - 1 march 2019.jpg

Posted in ABOUT Me - Anastpaul, NOTES to Followers, PRACTISING CATHOLIC

About Me – Anastpaul

About, Yes, about – 10 years ago a new Catholic Social Media website was launched in South Africa.   The creators and dreamers were in my Parish and I got involved – before long I was part of the leading Team and thus began this little project of mine.Anastpaul_1436004826_280

When, after a long slog of around 8 years and many curved balls – mostly financial ones (being in South Africa makes the financial aspects very difficult) – I left and began my own little project here.

I have been known as Anastpaul online, for much longer than the 10 years though – my name is Ana, St Paul is one of my two Confirmation Saints and I have always been very involved with catechesis and evangelisation in some form or another, trusting always in the passion and zeal of St Paul.

I am a ‘cradle’ Catholic, a Dominican Tertiary, brought up in a wholly Catholic home by Spanish and Italian parents (with a bit of Lithuanian Jewish blood too).   Rosary twice a week as a family, daily prayer, weekly Confession, Mass every day during Lent, etc etc.  We went to a Dominican Convent Private School and Christian Brothers schools , belonged to all available Catholic apostolates and just “Breathed Catholic”.

And so it has been – married a Catholic and our children too “Breath Catholic”, for our blood is Catholic and is graced by the Holy Trinity and our forefathers are the Apostles.    Mary is our Holy Mother and our friends are the Saints and Angels.

I live a totally Catholic life, involved in our Parish, running various apostolates there, am an ‘old-fashioned Catholic’ of the Spanish school and am 100% true to the Magisterium, to Pope Francis and to our home in Rome.

I know this much is true – if you ‘Breath Catholic” so too will your children grow up truly Catholic!   Amen.

Apologies – No posts today

So Sorry – No electricity!

Again this country is facing darkness (in many ways) but we are facing a melt-down in regard to electricity – the power is being cut at various times throughout each day to conserve the national grid.

Unfortunately, the times allocated to my area, meant I was unable to prepare any posts in the time I had available.

Hopefully, it will be better tomorrow.

May God Bless you, I miss you all!

May the Blessed Virgin, model of docility to the Spirit, help us, to abandon ourselves to Divine Providence.

Ana

“Get used to lifting your heart to God,
in acts of thanksgiving, many times a day.
Because He gives you this and that.
Because you have been despised.
Because you haven’t what you need
or because you have.
Because He made His Mother so beautiful,
His Mother who is also your Mother.
Because He created the sun and the moon
and this animal and that plant.
Because He made that man eloquent
and you He left tongue-tied …
Thank Him for everything,
because everything is good.”
