Today's Reading

The links below give the daily readings; as no on-line UK version is available (as far as I know!), the links go to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops website. So there may be some differences, eg, local saints days. The readings are from the New American Bible.

A Prayer


make me a better person,
more considerate towards others,
more honest with myself,
more faithful to you.

Make me generous enough to want
sincerely to do your will
whatever it may be.

Help me to find my true vocation in life,
and grant that through it
I may find happiness myself
and bring happiness to others.

Grant, Lord, that those whom you call
to enter the priesthood or the religious life
may have the generosity to answer your call,
so that those who need your help
may always find it.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.


Prayer for the Diocese

God our loving Father,
you made us your children in baptism.
Pour out on us afresh
the gifts of your Holy Spirit.
May your will
be done in all things.
Help us as a diocese
to know the paths we must follow
so as to build up your kingdom.
Teach us to grow in faith,
to encourage one another with words of hope,
and to care for your family with love.
Help us to bear witness
to the Good News
and be faithful followers
of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ
who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit
for ever and ever.


Our Lady of Unfailing Help
Pray for us.
