  1. Let us pray that God will send His Spirit afresh on His shepherds that they be united in word and action to Him who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6).

  2. So thankful for this site and especially for the app. It’s been a big part of my prayer life. However the woman reader (who seems to be on every recording lately) reads so overly dramatically, that it is terribly distracting…almost comical at times. I appreciate what she’s going for, but it takes so much away from the prayers.

  3. We have not checked in for some time so we checked the Older comments to catch up. As two very Irish Catholic Sisters (Nuns) we cannot resist providing clarification re the Monks of Glenstall Abbey & the singing of the Regina Coeli. It is NOT Sinead O’Connor singing at the Abbey. It is the great Irish Musicologist – & National Treasure – Noirin Ni Raiain. Anyone can check this out on You Tube & see/hear many other offerings of Noirin. If you are interested in authentic Irish musical culture, in the Irish/Gaelic, Noirin is a must.
    God bless you all,
    Srs. Assumpta & Mary Teresa

  4. Hi Kevin,

    I am certainly not an authority on this subject, but I do find questions like that very interesting. I looked up the text online: They use the word rejoice and all the Protestant versions do the same. To me thrill and rejoice have the same meaning. Once again, I am not an authority on the subject so whether or not the text has actually changed is not something I can answer, but I like thrill too. God bless you, and may you find the peace and contentment that the Lord graciously bestows upon his children always

  5. I noticed a change in Psalm 51 today:

    Make me hear rejoicing and gladness,
    that the bones you have crushed may *thrill*.

    used to say:

    Make me hear rejoicing and gladness,
    that the bones you have crushed may *revive*.

    Were the Psalm Texts updated?

  6. I ask your prayers for my 50 year old daughter Gretchen who is now in her last days, experiencing a lot of suffering from many kinds of cancer. Pray that she will accept the Sacraments of the Church that she has rejected for 35 years. Gretchen needs to feel the Mercy of our Lord through the wonderful Sacraments he gave us who are in full communion with the Catholic church he instituted.

    • My prayers are with you… may all who are on their final journey here feel the comfort of Jesus presence through the Sacraments and especially his body and blood in the Eucharist.

  7. Thanks very much for this wonderful resource. Forgive me if you are already aware of this, but the antiphon for today’s Invitatory appears to come from the Common of Virgins, rather than the one specified in the Ordinary. Is this an error, or have I missed something? God bless!

  8. I would like to ask prayers for my cousin Betsy Jacobson. She is at the end of ninth grade and recently announced on Facebook that she is in a relationship with a girl who is in tenth grade. Please pray that they realize the homosexual lifestyle is wrong and that they end the relatonship

    God Bless you and your families!!!!

  9. I would like to ask prayers for Alfe Evans a little boy in England who is sick. The hospital took him off life support 4 days ago and he is still living and the British court saying that he can’t leave the country to seek treatment at a hospital connected with the Vatican.

    • The Court is not taking into account that Euthanasia is WRONG, as is SUICIDE, and WE, “Will PRAY for You and the Young Person,” Considering these Extenuating Circumstances.

      My, and, “ALL OUR LOVE TO YOU.”

      May the Lord, God Jesus Christ INTERCEDE for US.


    • Let us also pray for his doctors and judges, and all medical and judicial personnel, that they will return to their duty and promise to defend innocent lives.

  10. Please do remember us, the Catholics in Benue state Nigeria in your prayers, as we are been attack by headsmen in our communities, that the good Lord should come to our aid!
