Look, My daughter, at My Heart, surrounded with thorns with which ungrateful men pierce Me at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. Do you, at least, try to console Me and announce in My name that I promise to assist at the moment of death, with all the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary, and keep Me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to Me. (Revelation of Our Lady of Fatima to Sr. Lucia)
But there certainly ARE so many rich rewards: the seven Sacraments, though I'm in NO HURRY to received the Last Rites.
Grace abounds with the Sacraments AND prayers. There are many blessings to earn with rosaries, novenas, blessings from priests, prayers to all the saints.
I say at least one rosary per day, sometimes two.
I always add a prayer to St. Michael the Archangel...to keep me safe at night.
Prayers to Our Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. He is God as well.
We all have our patron saints, maybe those we were named after, the multitude of saints for every day of the year.
Advent, Lent, the holy Days of Christmas, Easter, feast days of saints and Mary.
COUNTLESS ways that our good Lord can bless us!
It's not easy being a Catholic but it certainly is REWARDING!
