August – Immaculate Heart of Mary
Prayer of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and tender Mother of all people, I consecrate myself to your Immaculate heart, and recommend to you my family, my country, and the whole human race. Please accept my consecration, dearest Mother, and use me as you wish, to accomplish your designs upon the world. O Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of Heaven and earth, rule over me, and teach me how to allow the Heart of Jesus to rule and triumph in me and around me, as it has ruled and triumphed in you. Amen.

Barque of Peter
The World is a flood of confusion. Only one Boat that can sail safely through. The sail is Jesus. It’s pilot is Peter. It’s rudder, the Word of God. It is the Catholic Church. “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life” (John 14:6)
Follow the Lord and you will be led out of darkness, for He is the light. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light. (Psalm 36:9) But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation, a people set apart to sing the praises of God who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9)
“ … the barque of the Church is not mine but [Christ’s], nor does the Lord let it sink; it is he who guides it, surely also through those whom he has chosen, because he so wished. This has been, and is, a certainty which nothing can shake. ”

Partaking in the Eucharist commits us to others, especially the poor, teaching us to pass from the flesh of Christ to the flesh of our brothers and sisters, in whom he waits to be recognised, served honoured and loved by us.
