Holy Hour every Friday after 8:30 am Mass

O Saving Victim-played by Harold Parisher

O saving Victim, opening wide,
The gate of heaven to man below!
Our foes press on from every side;
Thine aid supply, thy strength bestow.

To Thy great name by endless praise,
Immortal Godhead, one in Three;
Oh, grant us endless length of days,
In our true native land with Thee. Amen

  Let us pray.

O Almighty and eternal God, look upon the Heart of  Your dearly beloved

Son and upon the praise and satisfaction He offers You in behalf of sinners; and

being appeased, grant pardon to those who seek your mercy, in the name of the

same Jesus Christ, Your Son who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the

Holy Spirit, world without end.  +Amen


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it

known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your

help or sought your intercession, was left unaided.  Inspired by

this confidence, I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to

you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.  O

Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in

Your mercy hear and answer me. +Amen


Heavenly Father, bless Your Church with an abundance of holy and

zealous priests, deacons, brothers and sisters.  Give those You have called

to the married state and those You have chosen to live as single persons

in the world, the special graces that their lives require.  Form us all in the

likeness of Your Son so that in him, with him and through him we may

love you more deeply and serve You more faithfully, always and every-

where.  With Mary we ask this through Christ our Lord.  +Amen.

                                        Holy God, We Praise Thy Name

“Holy God, we praise Thy Name” hymn from “Faith of our Fathers” concert performed by Irish Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus
Holy God, we praise Thy Name; Lord of all, we bow before Thee!

All on earth Thy scepter own. All in heaven above adore Thee;
Infinite Thy vast domain,   Everlasting is Thy reign.

Hark! with loud and pealing hymn, Thee the angel choirs are praising,
Cherubim and seraphim, One unceasing chorus raising,
Ever sing with sweet accord,   Holy, holy, holy, Lord.

Spare Thy people, Lord, we pray, by a thousand snares surrounded:
Keep us free from sin today, never let us be confounded.
All my trust I place in Thee. Never, Lord, abandon me.


About gemdk

I am a cradle Catholic who made my first Holy Communion over 5o years ago at All Saints Catholic Church in Houston,TX in 1961. Went to Mass every Sunday as a child and teen and then young adult. Fell away for about 12 years in the late 80's, early 90's and then realized what was missing in my life was my Catholic upbringing and faith. Found my home at Sacred Heart in Crosby. Filling up the void I had for those 12 years in more ways than I can imagine, loving every minute of it. But this blog is not about me as much as it is for me and anyone who wants/needs to hear the word of God. I'm merely the instrument God uses to post the readings.
