HOW DO I SEND GOOD THOUGHTS TO SOMEONE?

HOW DO I SEND GOOD THOUGHTS TO SOMEONE?

A good thought spread about is an angel who goes, in the name and to the profit of him who sends it, to do good in all places to which it has the mission to penetrate.

You desire to accomplish some work of mercy, which are so sweet to the soul and so meritorious for heaven – to give alms, for example… But you are too poor: Send forth a good thought which will simply tell of the happiness of giving, and, guided by Providence, it will penetrate into the soul of some person, who, being moved, will give largely out of his abundance. God will then have two people to reward – the one who gave and the one who inspired him to give.

You wish to visit prisoners [Mt 25:33-46] and the sick, to console those who weep, to speak of God to little children who do not know him… but your duty keeps you within the narrow precincts of a cell, a room, or a family: Send a good thought which will tell of God’s goodness, which will speak of the happiness and the merit of suffering, and will show how, it is followed by the sweet repose of Paradise… This thought will give birth to hope, to a smile, to some act of love… and God will be indebted to you for regaining to Himself a soul that perhaps had forgotten him

“That which reassures me against the judgment of God,” said a devout person on the point of death, “is the good books and pious pamphlets which I have distributed during my earthly life; it seems to me that each good thought to which they have given birth will plead as an advocate for me before God.’

Unknown friends, whom the reading of Golden Grains unites spiritually by prayer and zeal, let us sow good thoughts, in order that we may reap merits! [Mt 6:19-21]

– From: Golden Grains, Eighth Edition, M. H. Gill and Son, Dublin, 1889

THE TRANSFIGURATION OF OUR LORD – HYMN AND PRAYER

Hymn

The Gentiles’ mighty Lord, all hail / All hail, O Israel’s King adored! To Abraham sworn in ages past, and to his seed while earth shall last.

To you the prophets witness bear; of you the Father here proclaims, that all who would his glory see, must hear and must believe in you.

To Jesus, from the proud conceal’d, but to the little ones reveal’d, all glory with the Father be, and Holy Ghost, eternally. Amen.

Ant.1. Jesus took Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain apart, and he was transfigured before them.

Ant. 2. His face shone like the sun, and his garments became white as snow, alleluia.

Let us pray. O God, in the glorious transfiguration of your only Son, you confirmed the mysteries of faith by the testimony of the fathers, and miraculously foreshadowed the complete adoption of your sons in the voice which came from the bright cloud; deign to make us co-heirs with the King of glory, sharers in that same glory. Through the same Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.

By your grace may we come to share the glory of Christ.

V. Lord, hear us.

R. Lord, graciously hear us.

Having suffered with Him, may we also be glorified with Him.

V. Lord, hear us.

R. Lord, graciously hear us.

Our Father, etc.
