Sharing…Ancient Irish Poem published by ‘Magnificat’

Hail The Archangels

MAY GABRIEL BE WITH ME ON SUNDAYS, AND THE POWER OF THE KING OF HEAVEN.

MICHAEL ON MONDAY I SPEAK OF, MY MIND IS SET ON HIM.

IF IT BE TUESDAY, RAPHAEL I MENTION, UNTIL THE END COMES, FOR MY HELP.

MAY URIEL BE WITH ME ON WEDNESDAY, THE ABBOT WITH HIGH NOBILITY.

SANIEL ON THURSDAY I SPEAK OF, AGAINST THE SWIFT WAVES OF THE SEA.

ON THE DAY OF THE SECOND FAST, RUMIEL – A CLEAR BLESSING-I HAVE LOVED.

MAY PANCHEL BE WITH ME ON SATURDAYS, AS lONG AS I AM IN THIS YELLOW-COLORED WORLD.

MAY SWEET MARY DELIVER ME FROM STRANGERS.

MAY THE TRINITY SAVE ME FROM EVERY HURT, FROM EVERY DANGER.

HAIL THE ARCHANGELS

MORNING NUDGE

‘Bubbling Up’ Painting by Nancy Wood

THE LORD LED ME TO PURGATORY

THEN TO HELL – THERE I SAW PEOPLE BOBBING IN A LARGE POOL OF WATER

THEN TURNING MY GAZE, I SAW THE DEVIL SITTING ON HIS THRONE, SO UGLY, SO REPULSIVE

BUT, I WAS NOT AFRAID.

***

Since that ominous vision, I take great notice of all my dreams, journal them and pray for a true interpretation of them, and conclude that my dreams are truth to keep me humble, far from vanity and always being grateful for God’s mercy.

May no one be aggrieved by such frank sharing, may all your dreams be positive and all your prayers be granted..
