Remembering Our Best Friend’s Special Day!

FEAST DAY: The Guardian Angels

Dear Guardian Angel, I am sorry I often forget that you are always by my side. You are filled with a Divine Love for me, so eager to lead me, always there to protect me and even more importantly to help me strive for a greater holiness, if only I ask you. Please then, I now ask you, to help me live my day being more aware of your presence and to more often call upon you, my heavenly friend that God gave me, to not only physically protect me, but to help me avoid sin and to obtain graces for my soul, so that I may fall even more in love with Our Eternal Love, He who brought us together and made us both to be eternally happy with Him. I can’t wait to see you face to face. Thank you for all you have done for me. And for all those times I forget to say this, please except this from the bottom of my heart because I now say to you… “My beautiful and most faithful heavenly friend… My Dear Guardian Angel… I Love You.”

St. Peter Has Left the Room . . .

In a very unexpected move, Pope Francis gave away the relics of St. Peter. Does the Pope know that St. Peter was the founding Pope of our church? Wouldn’t it seem appropriate even to him that such a item should remain in the focal point of all the Catholics churches in the world, the Vatican.

It seems to me that a presiding pope should have some oversight before handing over relics so profound and revered by the Church as a gift from him to someone outside our faith. A date to remember with sadness. On June 29, 2019, Pope Francis handed over the relics of St. Peter to the archbishop of telmissos as a gift to Patriarch Bartholomew to be stored in Instanbul.

Basically, Also a Prayer for the Future . . .

O glorious St. Joseph, to you God committed the care of His only begotten Son amid the many dangers of this world. We come to you and ask you to take under your special protection the children God has given us. Through holy baptism they became children of God and members of His holy Church. We consecrate them to you today, that through this consecration they may become your foster children. Guard them, guide their steps in life, form their hearts after the hearts of Jesus and Mary.

St. Joseph, who felt the tribulation and worry of a parent when the child Jesus was lost, protect our dear children for time and eternity. May you be their father and counsellor. Let them, like Jesus, grow in age as well as in wisdom and grace before God and men. Preserve them from the corruption of his world, and give us the grace one day to be united with them in Heaven forever. Amen.
