Evening Prayer..........August 4



EVENING PRAYER

"Watch O Lord,
with those who wake, or watch,
or weep tonight,
and give your angels and saints
charge over those who sleep.
Tend your sick ones, O Lord Christ.
Rest Your weary ones,
Bless Your dying ones.
Soothe Your suffering ones.
Pity Your afflicted ones,
shield Your joyous ones.
And all for Your loves sake."

St. Augustine

French words have the following meaning:
(At the top:)The Sick-bed
(At the bottom:)O Jesus, Thou hast undergone much suffering here below.
Help me to suffer with Thee and for Thee.

Friends,
I believe that the French words have the following meaning:

(At the top:)
The Sick-bed

(At the bottom:)
O Jesus, Thou hast undergone much suffering here below. Help me to suffer with Thee and for Thee.

Micki, I LOVE this prayer--and how appropriate for this holy card. Thanks again for taking the time to post these lovely images and to find such wonderful words to accompany them.

John, you contribute so much to our experience with your translations and thank you so much. I use Babelfish translator a lot but I am never confident that I get it right.

Everyone Else, thanks for leaving comments. It is always fun to come here and see what the "community" is saying. Also, anyone who wants to see MORE holy cards is invited to visit MY website. Thank you to those who visit already.

God bless.
