Our Lady Of Guadalupe

Listen, put it into your heart, most little of my sons:
Let nothing frighten or grieve you,
let not your heart be disturbed,
do not fear any sickness or anguish.
Am I not here, who am your Mother?
Are you not under my protection?
Am I not your health?
Are you not happily within the folds of my mantle,
held safely in my arms?
Do you need anything more?
Let nothing else worry you, disturb you

The words of Our Lady of Guadalupe to St Juan Diego
December 1531

A Supplication

O San Cayetano, Padre de Providencia
Otorganos a diario tu milagrosa asistencia
Oh God, when I have food, help me to remember the hungry; when I have work, help me remember the jobless; when I have a warm home, help me to remember the homeless; when I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer; and in remembering, help me to destroy my complacency and bestir my compassion. Make me concerned enough to help, by word and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted. Amen

Conmemoracion mensual de San Cayetano/Monthly commemoration of St Cajetan

Glorioso San Cayetano, Padre de Providencia
Otorganos a diario tu milagrosa asistencia!

"Dios, todopoderoso y eterno, que diste a san Cayetano una admirable confianza en tu Providencia, un total desasimiento de las cosas de la tierra y una abundancia de dones del cielo, concede a los que hoy veneramos su memoria, sentir la ayuda de tu Providencia y tender, sin desmayo, a las realidades del cielo. Amén."

All powerful & eternal God, who gave St Cajetan a wonderful confidence in your Providence, a total rejection of the things of the world and an abundance of heavenly gifts, permit us who today venerate his memory, to feel the help of your Divine Providence, and to cling to the things of heaven without faltering. Amen

On the 7th day of every month is celebrated a mini feast of St Cajetan, a feast of faith and hope in Divine Providence. A day for special reflection in which we can think and give thanks for all that we DO have in our lives rather than all we don't have.
