6/12/10 - I Am Your Instrument- Lord, I am your instrument to use as you wish Lord, I am your instrument to share with others your gifts Lord, I am your instrument to show others your face Lord, I am your instrument to show others your grace Lord, I am your instrument to give encouragement to all Lord, I am your instrument to help those who sometimes stumble and fall Lord, I am your instrument which you made in the likeness of yourself And you know ever part of me better than I know myself Lord, I am your child with eyes gazing towards heaven above Lord, use this precious instrument to spread your mercy and love -Mary Alice Martinez-
5/17/10 - Ave Maria!
We now take you as our example
as we seek to “give birth” to Christ in the world around us.
We turn our eyes to you, Mary, the model of virtue and faith.
We wish to grow more and more like Christ
and enter more intimately into the mystery of the Incarnation.
We also turn our hearts toward you
so that we can better know Christ
and the whole world can be more open
to receiving the grace of Christ.
Mary, our loving Mother, your place is with God in heaven.
This gives us great hope
for it is also what we ourselves look forward to.
And so with great longing
and heartfelt trust,
we bring our prayers to you, Mary
and ask you to pray for us.
Here mention those desires, cares, and burdens which you bring to this prayer.
We know what you desire, for it is exactly what God desires
and what we really want:
That in the end,
we may all be restored in Christ,
that everyone on earth may live in peace,
and that God’s grace may fill the world.
Then we will truly know what it means
to be the People of God
Then we will fully understand
that Christ is the Light of Nations. Amen.
5/13/10 - May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,
give you a Spirit of wisdom and revelation
resulting in knowledge of him.
May the eyes of your hearts be enlightened,
that you may know what is the hope that belongs to his call
5/12/10 - We can be sure the Spirit will bless our efforts, strengthen
our faith and grant us the opportunity to witness to the Gospel
by our deeds. Come, Holy Spirit, open our hearts to all we
meet so that we can share your love
5/9/10 - May God bless all of our Mom's this Mother' Day
