The Chalice




"Almighty Father,
I place the Precious Blood of Jesus
before my lips before I pray,
that my prayers may be purified
before they ascent
to Your divine altar."

St. Mary Magdalen de Pazzi

Micki, I had a card exactly like this one when I was a child! Sadly, I don't know where it's gone. I hope you won't mind if I print off a copy of this. Many Thanks and Best Regards, Lynneda

Beautiful Micki, My wife and I always say this prayer.

I have to keep coming here every day, Lynneda -- not just for Micki's beautiful cards, but to learn from you to be a kinder person than I am.

God be with you.
John

Lynneda - Of course I won't mind.

Ed - How wonderful. I never heard that prayer before and I think it is just too beautiful. I would like to say it myself before Communion.

John - Ohhhhh, so nice.

Oh Micki, I could only say: Praise God for his beauty portrayed by these cards of yours!

Thank you for sharing them with us!
Love,
Easter:-)

Easter, I had to laugh at your response to my reply about St. Joseph's bald look. I have nothing against baldness. Maybe I shouldn't share this but the funniest remark I heard latly about having a bald spot is....."that's not a bald spot, that a solar window for a sex machine."..........forgive me...it just struck my fancy.
