Shelter in God’s Loving Arms, UPDATES @ St. Clare
Shelter in God’s Loving Arms
God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might have eternal life. (John 3:16)
While many states and cities have already implemented shelter-in-place plan to prevent the spreading of the Covid-19 virus, we must turn to God and find shelter in God’s loving arms because He is “our shelter and our strength, an ever-present help in distress.” (Ps 46:2) All we have to do in, in time of isolation, to recall God’s previous works in history and place our trust in Him. I invite you today to look through your life events and identify where/how God has protected you from harms.
Stay put, stay healthy, and stay connected with Christ through prayers!
We are ONE in Christ

St. Vincent Ferrer Novena (preacher and wonder maker) continue:
DAY 9 OF NOVENA: For the Desire of heaven
(1) Sign of the Cross
(2) Silently acknowledge your trust in God’s powerful works and voice your prayer request
(3) 1 Our Father, 3 Hail Mary, and 1 Glory Be...
(4) REFLECTION: St. Vincent Ferrer, during the time you were on earth, you used to repeat in your dejected hours, “One will rest in the other life.” It is done, you are in eternal peace, and eternal happiness. I desire to follow you one day. Until then, I hear you saying to me: “You should work and fight as long as you are in the world.” Teach me then to work for the salvation of my soul, to spread the good news and good example and to do good towards those around me in order that I will receive the happiness of the Elect with you. Holy Priest of St. Dominic, I have confidence in your intercession. Pray for me during this novena especially for (state your request here).
(5) NOVENA PRAYER: O Glorious apostle and thaumaturge, St. Vincent Ferrer, the new angel of the Apocalypse and our protector, accept our humble prayer and bring down upon us the abundance of divine favors. By that charity which animated thy heart, obtain for us from the Father of all mercy the pardon of our sins, steadfastness in the faith, perseverance in good works; so that living a fervent Christian life, we may deserve thy powerful patronage. Extend that patronage even to our bodies, and free them from infirmity. Preserve our fields from the damages of storm and hail, and keep off all misfortune. Thus favored by Thee with blessings in soul and body, we shall ever be thy devout clients, and one day with thee praise God in heaven, world without end. Amen.
St. Vincent Ferrer, pray for us.
St. Clare of Assisi, pray for us.
St. Michael the Archangel, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. Amen.
