Novena to St. John the Baptist. Aug 20-28

O Martyr invincible, who, for the honor of God and salvation of souls,
did with firmness and constancy withstand the impiety of Herod even at the cost of thine own life,
and did rebuke him openly for his wicked and dissolute life;
by thy prayers obtain for us a brave and generous heart
in order that we may overcome all human respect and openly profess our faith
in loyal obedience to the teachings of Jesus Christ, our Divine Master.

Our Father…..Hail Mary…..Glory Be

Novena to St. Rose of Lima, Aug. 21-29

Novena to St. Rose of Lima

Admirable Saint Rose, you were truly a sweet flower blooming on a rugged soil;
you were indeed a rose among thorns,
bearing with meekness and patience the stings of envious tongues,
and preserving perfect purity and modesty amid the alluring blandishments of a deceitful world.

To the sufferings inflicted on you by others you added the voluntary tortures of fasting and watching,
of the discipline, of the crown of thorns and of the hair shirt,
to subdue the flesh and to make yourself like to your heavenly Spouse. read more

Tantumblogo’s Year of Trial Continues: Please Pray for His Baby Daughter

August 17, 2017
Posted by Tantumblogo

My sweet baby girl, such a great gift of God for parents who thought they were probably too old to expect more children, has been hospitalized since last night. She has dehydration and probably some kind of chemical/pharmaceutical poisoning. She’s getting better but slowly. Not out of the woods yet.

No we don’t know what caused it and yes we have child proofed all medicines and dangerous chemicals but the signs point to probably some kind of medicine ingestion. read more

Please pray for 10 year old Samantha.

Samantha was coughing up blood last night.
Her mom took her to emergency but being a very small hospital they couldn’t find out what was wrong.
She was transferred by ambulance this morning to a larger hospital where they have more equipment
and specialists to find out what is wrong.
Please, please pray for this little girl.
I will update as I find out more.
Thank you my friends!

Novena for Assumption August 6-14

Mary, Queen Assumed into Heaven,

I rejoice that after years of heroic martyrdom on earth,
Thou hast at last been taken to the throne
prepared for Thee in heaven by the Holy Trinity.

Lift my heart with Thee in the glory of Thy Assumption
above the dreadful touch of sin and impurity.
Teach me how small earth becomes when viewed from heaven.
Make me realize that death is the triumphant gate
through which I shall pass to Thy Son,
and that someday my body shall rejoin my soul
in the unending bliss of heaven. read more

Fourteen Holy Helpers novena July 30- Aug 7

The Fourteen Holy Helpers are a group of early martyrs

O Faithful servants of God and powerful protectors of man, Holy Helpers!
Since Our Lord appointed thee the heavenly advocates for our needs on earth,
I confidently turn to thee for help in my distress.
Countless numbers praise thee for aiding them with counsel in doubt,
with consolation in anxiety, with health in illness, with safety in danger,
with delivery from prison, and with help and assistance in all tribulations.
Therefore I, too, have recourse to thee, and implore thee not to refuse me thy aid. read more

Look down upon me from thy throne where thou enjoys the reward of thy labors and obtain that some sparks of that blessed fire be lighted in my soul, to animate and encourage me in any crosses or trials with which it will please the Divine Goodness to send me. read more
