Saint Charles Borromeo

St Charles Borromeo.jpgThe Lord led the just in right paths. And showed him the kingdom of God.

We beseech Thee, O Lord, keep Thy Church under the continual protection of Saint Charles Thy Confessor and Bishop; and as his pastoral care made him glorious, so may we through his intercession ever grow in fervor of love for Thee.
I want to keep in our intentions the seminarians of St Joseph’s Seminary (Dunwoodie), the all faithful of the Archdiocese of Milan and the Missionary Fraternity of Saint Charles Borromeo and the Franciscan Order, since Saint Charles was a protector of the Order.

All Saints, solemnity

Paradise Tintoretto.jpg


I saw a great multitude which no man could number, out all nations, standing before the throne.

Almighty and everlasting God, Who has given us in one feast to venerate the merits of all Thy Saints, we beseech Thee through the multitude of intercessors, to grant us the desired abundance of Thy mercy.

Saints Simon & Jude (Thaddeus)


O God, Who through Thy blessed Apostles Simon and Jude, has brought us unto the knowledge of Thy Name, grant us both to celebrate their eternal glory by making progress in virtues and by celebrating their glory to advance in virtue.

Saint Ignatius of Antioch

Be mindful of our weakness, almighty God, and because we are oppressed by the burden of our deeds, grant that the glorious intercession of blessed Ignatius, Thy Martyr and Bishop, may protect us.

Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque


St Margaret Mary.jpgSo I ask you not to lose heart over what I am suffering for you, which is your glory. Lord, pour out on us the riches of the Spirit which you bestowed on Saint Margaret Mary. May we come to know the love of Christ, which surpasses all human understanding, and be filled with the fullness of God.

Consider knowing more about the message of Saint Margaret Mary, which forms some of our devotional life today. This is especially true when it comes to First Friday devotions and to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, source of all love and mercy.

Saint Margaret Mary, pray for us.
