9th Day of Prayer for the Dead

 

This 9th Day of Prayer for the Dead

May Father God welcome him/her

There in the place for the good who departed

 

In God’s Kingdom where there is life everlasting

Eternal life with Father God there

Have blessings and joy that are never-ending

 

Let the good who die live again

Have life again with Father God

There in the place we know as heaven.

 

Amen.

Novena Prayer to St. Benedict

 

Oh St. Benedict who is glorious

Grand Model of All Virtues

Bringer of Grace from the Almighty

I humbly kneel before thee

Protect me from all dangers & foes

Let me have the blessings God endows

And avoid whatever God forbids

 

Grant me the favors & graces I need from God

For the troubles in life that I had

As your kind heart directs to those being inflicted

You do not abandon those whom to you devoted

That is why I ask you to intercede for me

This petition (name of petition) I present to the Almighty

If it is for His glory & my spiritual relief

 

Oh St. Benedict who is great

Help me to maintain my faith

Live as a faithful child of God

Die as a faithful child of God

Let His will that is holy

Be done unto & through me

That I will be forever happy in his heavenly kingdom.

 

Amen.

St. Francis Prayer

 

Lord,
Let me become a tool of Thy order

Where there is hatred, let love be there

Where there is hurt, let forgiveness be there

Where there is distrust, let faithfulness be there

Where there is hopelessness, let opportunity be there

Where there is darkness, let light be there

Where there is grief, let gladness be there

 

Oh Holy Lord,

Let not my eyes be so widespread

So I can comfort as I am comforted

So I can comprehend as I am comprehended

So I can love as I am beloved

Because it is by giving that we can be given

And it is by forgiving that we can be forgiven

And it is by dying that we can be born again.

 

Amen.

In every evil protect us

Into hell with the rest of the demons

Who linger in this world to bring spiritual devastations.

 

Amen.

Our Golden Times During PDu30 – Part 3

 

Behold PDu30 in his 3rd Year of Presidency

The Year of the bowing earth Dog

Triple Blessings in our country!

 

If in his 1st year, he increased insurance in Social Security

And in his 2nd year, he gave students in SUCs free tuition

In his 3rd year, he pursued Irrigation Service also for free!

 

He cares for the old, for the young, for the farmers

He prohibited OFWs in a country where they are maltreated

Because he also cares for the Overseas Filipino Workers!

 

He successfully cleaned Boracay & Estero de Binondo

And ordered the cleaning of El Nido & the closure of illegal mines

Because he cares for the environment also!

 

When landslides killed a lot of people

In Itogon, Benguet & Naga, Cebu

Mines in the country PDu30 wanted to shut all!

 

So do not say PDu30 is a murderer

Accusing him of extra-judicial or state-sponsored killings

When he cares for both the people & the Earth Mother!

 

That’s why in his 3rd year as our president

His country received triple blessings

In science & religion, in sports & beauty pageant!

 

In science, our country sent satellites in space

In religion, Iglesia Ni Cristo got 3 world records in Guinness

And the Balangiga Bells are back to their home base!

 

In sports, Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League was inaugurated

Our country hosted the 1st International Ice Hockey Federation

And it’s also here where the 2018 FIBA 3x3 World Cup was held!

 

Finally, we again topped in international beauties

In Ms. Multinational, Ms. Asia-Pacific & Ms. Universe

Crowned again as “queens” the Filipina ladies!
