oh My Jesus

Oh my Jesus,
Forgive us our sins,
Save us from the fires of hell,
And lead all souls to heaven,
Especially those most in need of thy mercy.

Christmas 2011

Well, the stockings are hung by the TV with care,
In hopes that St. Nick soon will be here,
We have all the gifts ready to go in the mail come morning,
K in her Christmas sweater, and I in my Christmas cap,
Sat by the oldies on TV,
Watching Christmas shows from years past.
The Addams Family,
Andy Griffith,
and 3rd rock from the sun.

It was getting on nigh to 10 p.m.
K had filled the dishwasher with the, erm ... evidence of our holiday bakings.
We both were yawning contagiously.
We slipped into our pajamas, and went to bed.

In the morning we opened our eyes, and what did we see, but fresh new fallen snow,
And, three tiny reindeer with a sleigh and a jolly little elf,
K and I wondered what we were seeing.

The jolly elf turned to us, winked, and said
'May you have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!!"

And, may you all have one too!

Glory to the Father

Glory to the Father,
And to the Son,
And to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning,
Is now,
And always will be.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace! The Lord is with thee,
Blessed are you among women,
And blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners,
Now, and at the hour of our death.

Thanksgiving poem

O My God,
Thou fairest, greatest, first of all objects,
my heart admires, adores, loves thee,
for my little vessel is as full as it can be,
and I would pour out all that fullness before thee
in ceaseless flow.
When I think upon and converse with thee
ten thousand delightful thoughts spring up,
ten thousand sources of pleasure are unsealed,
ten thousand refreshing joys spread over my heart,
crowding into every moment of happiness.
I bless thee for the soul thou has created,
for adorning it, sanctifying it,
though it is fixed in barren soil;
for the body thou has given me,
for preserving its strength and vigour,
for providing senses to enjoy delights,
for the ease and freedom of my limbs,
for hands, eyes, ears that do thy bidding;
for thy royal bounty providing my daily support,
for a full table and overflowing cup,
for appetite, taste, sweetness,
for social joys of relatives and friends,
for ability to serve others,
for a heart that feels sorrows and necessities,
for a mind to care for my fellow-men,
for opportunities of spreading happiness around,
for loved ones in the joys of heaven,
for my own expectation of seeing thee clearly,
I love thee above the powers of language to express,
for what thou art to thy creatures.
Increase my love, O my God, through time and etermity.
