Sunday: Sharing and Pairing

19 Aug

Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
Mahatma Gandhi

When you think of Sunday, you usually think of going to church, family gatherings and Sunday dinner. Today, I was thinking about my Hispanic heritage and all the religious foundations that I was raised with. I wouldn’t say I’m the most religious person in the world, but I have a very strong faith in The Lord and that our faith keeps us strong.

Oración a la Virgen de Guadalupe
Oh amada Virgen de Guadalupe, rosa mística, intercede por nosotros ante tu Hijo y obteén por nosotros las gracias que te pedimos. En los momentos de angustia defiendenos de las fuerzas de nuestros enemigos, y a la hora de nuestra muerte recibe nuestra alma en el Cielo. Amén.

A beautiful Hispanic ritual is the prayer and novena to the Virgin of Guadalupe. So, to share in both Spanish and English, (thus the pairing) here are some lovely prayers. It really doesn’t matter who you pray to or what your faith is, just having faith “is a good thing.”
