Lord, you offer me this new year
like a stained glass window to assemble
with the 365 pieces of all colours
which represent the days of my life.

In appearance, just another of the world’s many children. A Child is born in a stable in Bethlehem.

Lord Jesus, Hope of the Nations, come! May we rejoice in your divine Presence. We need counsel, help and protection

O Divine Heart of Jesus,
Grant, I beg you,
Eternal rest for the souls in Purgatory ...

For all the unknown Saints we only celebrate on All Saints’ Day.
For all the martyred Saints from times gone by, for all the martyred saints of today, all over the world.
For all the Saints who are in heaven simply because they did their job with all their heart.


God, our Father,
You planted deep in the heart of your servant, Henri Caffarel,
a fountain of love which bound him totally to your Son
and inspired him with a wonderful capacity to speak of Him.

O Immaculate, Queen of heaven and earth,
Refuge of sinners and our most loving Mother,
God has willed to entrust the entire order of mercy to You,

Stay with me, Lord, for it is necessary to have You present so that I do not forget You. You know how easily I abandon You.

Let nothing trouble you, let nothing make you afraid. All things pass away. God never changes. Patience obtains everything. God alone is enough.

“A vast torrent of grace” 
The central purpose of Jesus mission, which culminated in the gift of the Holy Spirit, was to renew our relationship with the Father, a relationship severed by sin, to take us from our state of being orphaned children and to restore us as his sons and daughters.
