Holy Spirit Protect Us

O Holy Spirit

O Holy Spirit, soul of my soul,
I adore you,
Enlighten, guide, strengthen and console me,
Tell me what I ought to do and command me to do it.
I promise to submit to everything that you ask me
And to accept all that you allow happen to me.
Just show me your will.

 Podcast interview on centering prayer with Fr. Murchadh:

Prayer with Bishop Frank Dewane

On the first Friday of every month, you are invited to join Bishop Frank J. Dewane in prayer on the Catholic Community Foundation of Southwest Florida’s Facebook page, where he will be praying for all intentions that were submitted during the previous month.  We also encourage you to visit the Foundation’s Facebook page throughout the month to submit your own personal prayer intentions in the comment section of the “First Friday Prayer Intentions with Bishop Dewane” video posts.

Prayer to Christ the Healer

In the comfort of your love,
I pour out to you my Savior,
The memories that haunt me,
The anxieties that perplex me,
The fears that stifle me,
The sickness that prevails upon me,
And the frustration of all the pain
That weaves about within me.

Lord help me to see your peace in my turmoil,
Your compassion in my sorrow,
And your love in my need.
Touch me, O Lord, with your healing power and strength.

 

Regarding Confession

‘Where the individual faithful find themselves in the painful impossibility of receiving sacramental absolution, it should be remembered that perfect contrition, coming from the love of God, beloved above all things, expressed by a sincere request for forgiveness (that which the penitent is at present able to express and accompanied by votum confessionis, that is by the firm resolution to have recourse, as soon as possible to sacramental confession, obtain forgiveness of sins, even mortal ones (cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1452)’

Friday of the Tenth Week in Ordinary Time

Reading 1 1 Kgs 19:9a, 11-16 At the mountain of God, Horeb,Elijah came to a cave, where he took shelter.But the word of the LORD came to him,“Go outside and stand on the mountain before the LORD;the LORD will be passing by.”A strong and heavy wind was rending the mountainsand crushing rocks before the LORD—but the LORD was not in the wind.After the wind there was an earthquake— but the LORD was not in the earthquake.After the earthquake there was fire—but the LORD was not in the fire.After the fire there was a tiny whispering sound.When he heard this,Elijah hid his face in his cloakand went and stood at the entrance of the cave.A voice said to him, “Elijah, why are you here?”He replied, “I have been most zealous for the LORD,the God of hosts.But the children of Israel have forsaken your covenant,torn down your altars,and put your prophets to the sword.I alone am left, and they seek to take my life.”The LORD said to him,“Go, take the road back to the desert near Damascus.When you arrive, you shall anoint Hazael as king of Aram.Then you shall anoint Jehu, son of Nimshi, as king of Israel,and Elisha, son of Shaphat…
