Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
—  Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4

Novena to the Holy Spirit
Day 1

✞  In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen. ✞

Almighty and eternal God

Send forth your Spirit
Who brought order from chaos
At the beginning of the universe
And peace to the Lord’s disciples

Baptized in your spirit
May be filled with the seven gifts
So that we may forever do your will
And renew the face of the Earth

Our Father Prayer: Holy Trinity Edition

Our Trinity, which art online,                                                                           hallowed be thy pun.Thy videos come; thy will be watched, in hd as it is on YouTube.Give us this day our daily vlog.

I don’t know. 

June 13 is the feast day of Saint Anthony of Padua.  A Doctor of the Church and a noted Franciscan, St. Anthony has been called the “Wonder Worker” because miracles as a result of his intercession, and he is also known as the “Patron Saint of Lost Things”–making him everyone’s patron at one time or another!

I will be praying a novena to St. Anthony over the next nine days, culminating in his feast day.  Here is one prayer you might use if you have a need or wish St. Anthony’s intercession: 

✞ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen. ✞

After you died, St. Anthony, God chose to make your holiness known to the world and to draw people by working miracles in answer to prayers made in your name. Since then, people have asked God to continue to honor you by working wonders through your intercession. Those who have experienced the power of prayers offered in your name have told how God has answered them. God has healed the sick, restored peace of mind, relieved poverty and granted favors of all kinds.

Now in this time of need, I ask you, St. Anthony, to pray with me for the things I desire. I pray that God may again give me a sign of loving care and providence, and that through you, God may draw us all to the fullness of life and love in eternity. Amen.

Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be

Saint Anthony of Padua, pray for us.

Our Yoncé who art from Houston, flawless be thy name. Thy queendom come, thy world be run, by girls as it is intended. Give us this day, a fem'nist way, and love us till the end of time. As we forgive white girls who dance to Formation. And lead us not to texts with fuckboys. But deliver us from scrubs. God damn, God damn, God damn.

The Rowing Prayer

Our father who art in riggers
Rower be thy name
Thy race come
My medal won
On water as it is on erg
Give us our daily blades
Forgive us our crabs
As we forgive those who get them
Lead us not to temptation
Forgive us from evil
For thy is the rower
Power of the legs
Forever and ever

Do Not Worry. Pray Instead

Worrying steals all that is good in our lives and that includes our faith in Christ. Knowing that Christ can do all things and turn situations from the worst towards His glory, let us instead use all our energy to converse with our Father through prayer.

He hears and He answers.

Casey N. Cep on how a woman took to the Internet to crack a code left behind by her dying grandmother twenty years earlier: http://nyr.kr/1e1pDrQ

“Holm posted the image and her short description of her grandmother’s cards at 4:13 P.M. and, at 4:25 P.M., another user asked, ‘Was she a religious woman?’ That user noticed the ‘last As, as well as the AAA combo,’ and thought that they might mean ‘Amen, amen, amen.’ That stab in the dark was followed by another: ‘So extrapolating—TYAGF = Thank you Almighty God for … ’ A minute later, the same user posted again, this time with more confidence: ‘AGH, YES!’ She realized that the repeated two lines on the back of the card were the Lord’s Prayer: ‘Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name…etc etc etc.’”

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.



Matthew 6:9-13

The Lord’s Prayer

DAY 2549

Sopaan, New Delhi               Apr  7, 2015              Tue  10:45 pm 

Rochelle, we are so grieved at the news of the passing of your dear Father .. all our prayers and condolences with you and the family ,.. be brave and strong .. we are with you ..  

I rest and sleep in the room that my father slept in here in Sopaan .. I travel through his library and his work desk where he sat for hours and years writing contemplating, thinking and putting all that he worked on into words .. his room remains and is kept the way he left it .. I rummage through some of the books , the hundreds that adorn the shelves, and then pick up his ‘rachnavali’ his autobiography, a volume of it and run through the pages , and realise in enraged fury that I have not spent anytime with him at all .. with his words with his philosophy of life and beyond, with his literature and his writing .. every word every sentence a mammoth learning .. some of it I put out early in the morning on FB and Twitter … some I shall keep to myself … its a sort of selfishness .. sharing with all what belongs to me and my blood .. but share I must .. his genius must be made vocal and available to all .. I am tempted to give up all that I involve myself in, my work my responsibilities and my insecurities, to just exist in the realm of Father’s words and works …

There is rehearsal for the event tomorrow at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, the Presidents House, the ex residence of the Viceroy of Great Britain when India was ruled by the British, the largest private residence in the world, I believe .. its an architectural marvel … and the investiture ceremony shall take place in the historic Ashoka Hall, the hall that resounds with history .. the place where Lord Mountbatten, the last Viceroy handed over the Independent charge to India, the place where the Republic of India was inaugurated and the first Indian President, Dr Rajendra Prasad was appointed …

I have been in this hall on many occasions. The two early Padma Awards for my Father and my Padma Shri were conducted here .. as also my Padma Bhushan.. then we had moved inside to the Grand Hall with its incredible ornate ceiling work, for the other Padma Awards for Jaya and Aishwarya .. this year it is back to the Ashoka Hall ..

So many memories are attached to this residence .. difficult to describe them now, without breaking some personal protocol .. so another day maybe, when it is felt by me to state those moments .. then …

What I have discovered , and to my great relief and joy is that in the pages that I have been through of my Father’s works, there are vast pages devoted to why and where and how each one of his works were written and devised .. the meanings behind the thoughts that kept pouring out ..

Thus is a blessing .. for now I hope to be able to educate myself and in turn others that could be interested in his writings … I am so happy with this .. so happy ..

As I close for the day, it is so heartening to have the family coming together for tomorrow’s investiture .. Abhishek who is shooting in Dubai, shall come in early morning tomorrow … Aishwarya and Aaradhya have just landed from Mumbai .. Navya and Agastya have come home from London school, for their Easter break and all shall be present to witness this moment  … and of course NIkhil and Shweta and Jaya .. all shall be with me in that historic hall for the morrow ..

I shall depart .. and be a part of tomorrow with you ..

My love …
