The royal garb of Jesus,
was torn flesh
His throne, a cross of wood.
His crown, woven of thorns.
The dowry for his bride,
paid in blood.
A new Eve sprung from the side
of new Adam.
Queen mother in tears,
stands at his right.
Watching death bear life,
heaven and earth sing the wedding song.
- Rachel Gohlman
“May the Lord answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
May he send you help from the sanctuary
and grant you support from Zion.
May he remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings.b
May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.
May we shout for joy over your victory
and lift up our banners in the name of our God.
May the Lord grant all your requests.
Now this I know:
The Lord gives victory to his anointed.
He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary
with the victorious power of his right hand.”
-Psalm 20: 1-6
Please remember to pause and say a prayer for all our seminarians. Even a single Hail Mary will do.
“Blessed be the LORD, my rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle; My lovingkindness and my fortress, My stronghold and my deliverer, My shield and He in whom I take refuge.”
I can’t stress this enough. The sacrament of confession is awesome. Jesus forgives time and time again. He always loves. He always washes us clean. He is always waiting for us.
Get ye shriven!
