  1. Shoulder Wound of Jesus Christ 
    Oh loving Jesus, meek lamb of God, I a miserable sinner salute and worship the most sacred wound of Thy Shoulder, On which Thou didst bear Thy heavy cross, which so tore Thy flesh and laid Thy bones as to inflict an anguish greater than any other wound of Thy most Blessed Body. I adore Thee, Oh Jesus most sorrowful, I praise and glorify Thee, and give thankfully to thee for this most Holy and sacred and painful wound, beseeching Thee by that exceeding pain, and by the crushing burden of Thy heavy Cross to be merciful to me on towards Heaven along the way of Thy Cross. (Mention Petition). Amen to all. Publication MUST happen immediately after prayer. J St H

    • Even though you do not have flood insurance, please sign up with FEMA and the Red Cross. The governor of LA has stated that there are some funds set aside for those without flood insurance.

  4. I Love the Novenas! I’m able to appreciate them more with age. I’ve been Catholic since I was 5 and didn’t quite understand it as a Younger person but now @ 55 it’s has such profound, dedicated and sincere meaning in my life. I look forward to praying these Novena’s with my daily affirmations. Thank you for sharing.

    God Bless

  5. Have you ever considered adding a section called ” offer it up”. We all have trials on a daily basis, some small, some overwhelming, but if we join those trials as a form of prayer offering there is great merit in uniting ourselves to the cross of Christ. Perhaps as a global prayer community we could offer our trials up for the salvation and sanctification of others. As people request prayers for their own intentions, others may offer their own hardship on behalf of those needs.

    Thank you for your ministry, it helps keep me focused on the spiritual rather than the worldly.
