Please bear with me...
I appear to have been"tagged" - which sounds like something that used to happen in the playground when I was at school but is the first time it has happened to me in the blogosphere.
The rules, which need to be posted: Name your three most favourite prayers, and explain why they're your favourites. Then tag five bloggers - give them a link, and then go and tell them they have been tagged. Finally, tell the person who tagged you that you've completed the meme... The Liturgy and the Sacraments are off limits here. I'm more interested in people's favourite devotional prayers.
Thank you, Leutgeb.I'll try to oblige. The first bit is easy:
Three favourite prayers:
1. The Memorare- because it brought me my wife. Really.
2. The Hail Mary- because I know I can depend on Our lady's prayers. She really is the Refuge of Sinners- like when I was breathalysed.
3. The Veni Sancte Spiritus- because it reminds me of God's active presence in the World.
So there it is - or they are. Not particularly edifying but that's how it is.
So, now, who can I tag?
I think I shall tag Paul Mallinder, Reluctant Sinner, Breadgirl, Athanasius, Scottish Teuchtar ,
A priest was celebrating his 60th anniversary. I knelt down and said, "Father, I really need your blessing." When I opened my eyes after it was done he was kneeling next to me and said, "Now Father, I really need your blessing." I did not ask him how he stayed faithful for 60 years, for someone who humbled himself like that already gave the answer. To say Yes to God and to keep it - humility is the answer to faithful committed love. - via Instagram https://ift.tt/2pyavhq
