Jesus said, “Whoever, then, acknowledges me before people, I will acknowledge before my Father in heaven. But whoever denies me before people, I will deny him also before my Father in heaven”. (Matthew 10:32-33)
It’s not easy in today’s commercial world but I consider it my duty and a privilege to celebrate and tell others of Jesus’ birth, death, resurrection and promises of everlasting happiness.
How about you?
Lord Jesus, I pray for those living in darkness and sin. May they discover your light of truth and love.
Prayer: Most Holy Mary (St John Bosco)
Most Holy Virgin Mary, Help of Christians,
how sweet it is to come to your feet
imploring your perpetual help.
If earthly mothers cease not to remember their children,
how can you, the most loving of all mothers forget me?
Grant then to me, I implore you,
your perpetual help in all my necessities,
in every sorrow, and especially in all my temptations.
I ask for your unceasing help for all who are now suffering.
Help the weak, cure the sick, convert sinners.
Grant through your intercessions
many vocations to the religious life.
Obtain for us, O Mary, Help of Christians,
that having invoked you on earth
we may love and eternally thank you in heaven.
