The image showing the fish in a bowl of water is inspired from an idea that St George Preca often referred to when speaking about our relationship with God. According to him we live in God like a fish in water. As the fish lives in water and cannot survive without it we are constantly surrounded with the presence and the love of God and we should be convinced that we cannot live without him.

Prayers by St George Preca

Honouring the Divine Wounds of Jesus

You can do this devotion on your own or with a group.

Dear friends, let us bring to mind the dead body of Jesus Christ, laid in the arms of his sorrowful mother, and contemplate with her His Divine Wounds. Let us adore them and offer them to God the Father for our salvation and for all the living and dead.

The divine wound of the left foot of Christ
Let us honour and adore. (bow)

The divine wound of the right foot of Christ
Let us honour and adore. (bow)

The divine wound of the side of Christ
Let us honour and adore. (bow)

The divine wound of the left hand of Christ
Let us honour and adore. (bow)

The divine wound of the right hand of Christ
Let us honour and adore. (bow)

Christ have mercy; Christ have mercy; Christ have mercy.

By the merits of your wounds, o Lord,
Heal the wounds of our souls.

Father, Everlasting God, we offer you the Divine Wounds of our Lord Jesus Christ, your beloved son, that you may deign:

  1. To protect, bless and sanctify our Society;
  2. To convert to you all sinners for whom these springs of life were opened;
  3. To admit into your glory the souls of Purgatory;
  4. To spread throughout the whole world the teaching of eternal life; and
  5. To fill each one of us, here present with the spirit of the same Jesus Christ, a spirit of love, humility and meekness.

Let us bless the Lord,
Thanks be to God.
