Morning Prayers March 04 2009

Audio (podcast) of Morning Prayers for March 04, 2009.

Today we also remember Saint Casimir, son of the king of Poland (1458-1484). He practiced the Christian virtues with special regard to chastity and kindness to the poor and was zealous in the faith, particularly in his devotion to the holy eucharist and the Virgin Mary. A contemporary wrote that “He always preferred to be counted among the meek and poor of spirit, among those who are promised the kingdom of heaven, rather than among the famous and powerful men of this world.” He was also notable for “his exercise of moderation, his gift of prudence, his fundamental spiritual courage and stability, especially in a most permissive age, when men tended to be headstrong and by their very natures inclined to sin.” Truly a saint for our similarly permissive and individualistic age.

Psalm 36; Judith 16:2-3a, 13-15; Psalm 47; Deuteronomy 7:6, 8-9;

From ancient times the Church has had the custom of celebrating each day the Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office. In this way the Church fulfills the Lord’s precept to pray without ceasing, at once offering its praise to God the Father and interceding for the salvation of the world. Join me in praying the Liturgy of the Hours today and throughout the lenten season.

    From Juan – Ellie who was six months pregnant lost her baby today. Because of complications she is very sick and in a very fragile situation. Please keep her and her husband Roy and their family in your prayers. They are both parishioners at SJN and are very active in all types of parish ministry. They are wonderful people and it would be great if we would lift them up in prayer to our Lord. Please pray also that our Mother Mary protect them in her mantle of love, may Jesus fill their hearts with consolation and peace and that they may receive the graces necessary from Him to be able to handle this situation. In Christ, Juan
