Jesus . . . the most beautiful name in the world.


Morning Prayer

Baby Jesus and Mary

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ I will begin this day.

I thank you, Lord, for having preserved me during the night. I will do my best to make all I do today pleasing to You and in accordance with Your will. My dear mother Mary, watch over me this day. My Guardian Angel, take care of me. St. Joseph and all you saints of God, pray for me.

O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers, works, joys and sufferings of this day for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in reparation for my sins, for the intentions of all my relatives and friends, and in particular for the intentions of the Holy Father. Amen.


The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Dear Friends,

I’ve been encouraged by many of you to offer a “donations” button on my site. If you’re enjoying this blog, or my Facebook page, and it has been a blessing to you, please consider supporting it with even a modest donation – every little bit helps.

It takes hundreds of hours to research, write and maintain this site, which I love doing, but at the same time it has been a bit of a financial strain. Any support is appreciated as it would allow me to continue running Love Being Catholic like I have been for the last 3.5 years.

My mission is to help you grow deeper in your love for Christ, His Church, and our Blessed Mother, while at the same time give you some easy-to-understand answers to questions you might have been asked by others about our faith. Your donations will help me to fulfill that mission.

Please do not give if you are struggling financially at this time, in debt or not employed. This page should be a blessing to you, not a burden!

If you have donated already, I thank you wholeheartedly for making all of this possible. If you find any joy and value in Love Being Catholic, please consider supporting me in my efforts. Please also keep me in your prayers – you are all in my prayers as well!
