Jesus I Trust in You!! Posted by Hello
+JMJPT+
Here are the Mass Readings from the Sacred Scripture for Monday May 2nd, 2005. Please take a moment and read over and meditate on the readings for today and unite yourself in prayer with the Church throughout the world. Please especially pray for the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI and his intentions in your prayers. Today I ask that you pray especially for all lukewarm and fallen away Christians that the Holy Spirit may grant them zeal and fervency and fortitude to live out their Christain faith in a bold way before a hurting world in darkness. Please also pray for the conversion of those who do not know or belive in Christ that they may find His Truth, His Mercy and His Love with in His Bride The Catholic Church. Please remember my daughter and I and those in our lives in your prayers also. I also ask that you remember, over the next several days, a couple very special and very important intentions that I have placed before the Throne of Mercy and Grace. It is to Our Loving and Merciful God and His Mother that I fly to with my intercession and I humbly and obediantly submit to Divine Providence in my need. I thank you in advance for your prayers.
I have posted two very powerful prayers below my text and above the Mass Readings that you may find helpful.
May Christ Our Crucified and Risen Redeemer richly bless you all and those in your life and may Mary keep you always beneath her protective mantle of love and grace!
Omnia Pro Iesu Per Mariam!!

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

Memorial of Saint Athanasius, bishop and doctor of the Church

Reading I
Acts 16:11-15


We set sail from Troas, making a straight run for Samothrace,
and on the next day to Neapolis, and from there to Philippi,
a leading city in that district of Macedonia and a Roman colony.
We spent some time in that city.
On the sabbath we went outside the city gate along the river
where we thought there would be a place of prayer.
We sat and spoke with the women who had gathered there.
One of them, a woman named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth,
from the city of Thyatira, a worshiper of God, listened,
and the Lord opened her heart to pay attention
to what Paul was saying.
After she and her household had been baptized,
she offered us an invitation,
"If you consider me a believer in the Lord,
come and stay at my home," and she prevailed on us.

Responsorial Psalm
Ps 149:1b-2, 3-4, 5-6a and 9b


R. (see 4a) The Lord takes delight in his people.
or:
R. Alleluia.
Sing to the LORD a new song
of praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel be glad in their maker,
let the children of Zion rejoice in their king.

R. The Lord takes delight in his people.
or:
R. Alleluia.
Let them praise his name in the festive dance,
let them sing praise to him with timbrel and harp.
For the LORD loves his people,
and he adorns the lowly with victory.

R. The Lord takes delight in his people.
or:
R. Alleluia.
Let the faithful exult in glory;
let them sing for joy upon their couches.
Let the high praises of God be in their throats.
This is the glory of all his faithful. Alleluia.

R. The Lord takes delight in his people.
or:
R. Alleluia.


Gospel
Jn 15:26—16:4a


Jesus said to his disciples:
"When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father,
the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father,
he will testify to me.
And you also testify,
because you have been with me from the beginning.

"I have told you this so that you may not fall away.
They will expel you from the synagogues;
in fact, the hour is coming when everyone who kills you
will think he is offering worship to God.
They will do this because they have not known either the Father or me.
I have told you this so that when their hour comes
you may remember that I told you."
