The Daily Read for May 13th 2005

"Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death." Posted by Hello
+JMJPT+
The are the Mass Readings for Friday May 13th, 2005, which is also the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima and also Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Please take some time today and meditate on today's readings and unite yourself in prayer with the Church throughout the world. Please pray for our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI and his intentions today and for all deacons, priests, bishops and religious everywhere. I ask today that you make an examination of conscience and also if you can make a Holy Hour of Adoration for Reparation and Conversion of all peoples. A great time to make this Holy Hour or the examination is at the Three O Clock Hour in the afternoon and then pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy followed by the Holy Rosary. Even if you can not make this Holy Hour at that time still please take a moment at 3 in the afternoon and pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. We need to pray for those who have no one to pray for them and those who are furthest away from Christ that God's Mercy and Grace may pour out upon them. As we prepare for Pentacost Sunday let us also pray sometime today the Litany of the Holy Spirit and the Novena to the Holy Spirit. Links to the suggested prayers are all contained in the text above. May Christ Our Crucified and Risen Redeemer bless us all and may The Immaculate Heart of Mary reign in our hearts, minds and throughout the world.
Since in today's Gospel Reading Christ foretells of Peter's martyrdom I have decided to post the picture of St. Peter's Martyrdom before the Gospel reading and in honour of Mary Our Mother at the top of this posting you will see the picture of Our Lady. Please spend some extra time praying the Holy Rosary today and pray for her intercession.
Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra!
Omnia Pro Iesu Per Mariam!!

Friday of the Seventh Week of Easter
Feast of Our Lady of Fatima


Reading I
Acts 25:13b-21


King Agrippa and Bernice arrived in Caesarea
on a visit to Festus.
Since they spent several days there,
Festus referred Paul's case to the king, saying,
"There is a man here left in custody by Felix.
When I was in Jerusalem the chief priests and the elders of the Jews
brought charges against him and demanded his condemnation.
I answered them that it was not Roman practice
to hand over an accused person before he has faced his accusers
and had the opportunity to defend himself against their charge.
So when they came together here, I made no delay;
the next day I took my seat on the tribunal
and ordered the man to be brought in.
His accusers stood around him,
but did not charge him with any of the crimes I suspected.
Instead they had some issues with him about their own religion
and about a certain Jesus who had died
but who Paul claimed was alive.
Since I was at a loss how to investigate this controversy,
I asked if he were willing to go to Jerusalem
and there stand trial on these charges.
And when Paul appealed that he be held in custody
for the Emperor's decision,
I ordered him held until I could send him to Caesar."

Responsorial Psalm
Ps 103:1-2, 11-12, 19-20ab


R. (19a) The Lord has established his throne in heaven.
or:
R. Alleluia.
Bless the LORD, O my soul;
and all my being, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits.

R. The Lord has established his throne in heaven.
or:
R. Alleluia.
For as the heavens are high above the earth,
so surpassing is his kindness toward those who fear him.
As far as the east is from the west,
so far has he put our transgressions from us.

R. The Lord has established his throne in heaven.
or:
R. Alleluia.
The LORD has established his throne in heaven,
and his kingdom rules over all.
Bless the LORD, all you his angels,
you mighty in strength, who do his bidding.

R. The Lord has established his throne in heaven.
or:
R. Alleluia.


Gospel
Jn 21:15-19


Posted by Hello

After Jesus had revealed himself to his disciples and eaten breakfast with them,
he said to Simon Peter,
"Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?"
Simon Peter answered him, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you."
Jesus said to him, "Feed my lambs."
He then said to Simon Peter a second time,
"Simon, son of John, do you love me?"
Simon Peter answered him, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you."
He said to him, "Tend my sheep."
He said to him the third time,
"Simon, son of John, do you love me?"
Peter was distressed that he had said to him a third time,
"Do you love me?" and he said to him,
"Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you."
Jesus said to him, "Feed my sheep.
Amen, amen, I say to you, when you were younger,
you used to dress yourself and go where you wanted;
but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands,
and someone else will dress you
and lead you where you do not want to go."
He said this signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God.
And when he had said this, he said to him, "Follow me."

Prayer of St. Gertrude the Great:

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the Universal Church, Those in my own home and within my family. Amen.

Prayer to St. Michael:

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of Battle; Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke Him, we humbly pray, and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast into Hell, Satan and all the other evil spirits, who prowl through the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen



Novena prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus:

O most holy Heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, I adore You, I love You, and with a lively sorrow for my sins, I offer You this poor heart of mine. Make me humble, patient, pure and wholly obedient to Your will. Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in You and for You. Protect me in the midst of danger; comfort me in my afflictions; give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs, Your blessing on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death.

Prayer to Defeat the Work of Satan:

O Divine Eternal Father, in union with your Divine Son and the Holy Spirit, and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg You to destroy the Power of your greatest enemy - the evil spirits.
Cast them into the deepest recesses of hell and chain them there forever! Take possession of your Kingdom which You have created and which is rightfully yours.
Heavenly Father, give us the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
I repeat this prayer out of pure love for You with every beat of my heart and with every breath I take. Amen
