Archbishop Sheen once suggested that there were people who started their day with
“Good Lord!, Morning!”
in a negative kind of way. I’ve been there, so I know it is true.
There is a better way. Try the Morning Offering (best read while playing the above video):
O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary,I offer you my prayers, works, joys, sufferings of this day,in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world.I offer them for all the intentions of your Sacred Heart;the salvation of souls, the reparation for sin, the reunion of all Christians;I offer them for the intentions of our bishops and of all members of the Apostleship of Prayer,and in particular for those recommended by the Holy Father this month.Amen.
Yep, you guessed it, Catholic life is all about team work with Jesus as our captain, and the whole universe as our play mate.
Pray, Pray, Pray.
Thank you so much, Brother B., for a lovely start to the day. A really ‘good’ morning…..
