Fight the good fight of the faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. In the presence of God who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I charge you to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ; and this will be made manifest at the proper time by the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.
1 Timothy 5:11
And the angel said to them, "Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people; for to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger."
Absolutely beautiful rendition to enjoy this Advent Season.
"Be one of the small number who find the way to life, and enter by the narrow gate into Heaven. Take care not to follow the majority and the common herd, so many of whom are lost. Do not be deceived; there are only two roads: one that leads to life and is narrow; the other that leads to death and is wide. There is no middle way."
— St. Louis de Montfort
O Most Holy Trinity, I adore You!
Trusting in Your love and mercy
I am now ready to fully participate
in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass,
the Source and Summit of my life.
My Savior, Jesus Christ, I believe
that You are Truly Present in the
Most Holy Eucharist.
Eternal Father, I offer You the
Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity
of Your dearly beloved Son,
Our Lord Jesus Christ,
in atonement for our sins
and those of the whole world.
Come Holy Spirit, fill me with
every grace and blessing.
Help me to receive Your life-giving
Word in the Scriptures
and to be a Missionary Disciple
O Blessed Virgin Mary,
All Angels and Saints,
and My Guardian Angel,
help me to pray well.
We ask this all through
Christ, our Lord. Amen.
The lord is my sheperd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the lord for ever.
