Dear Jesus, Help me to spread Thy fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with Thy spirit and love. Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly, that all of my life may only be a radiance by Thine. Shine through me and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with…Read More
1. May you find someone worth keeping and may you find that someone keeping you back.
2. May your eyes be opened to the truth and believe that truth will set you free.
3. May you find someone who recognises your light and takes care of your scar.
4. May you find true friends who can speak word of truth to you and can determine the time when to speak it.

All these I pray in the mighty name of Your son Jesus who lives with You together with the Holy Spirit. One God. Forever.
Saint Josemaria Escriva, pray for us.
I Offered A Rosary For All My Readers
(One Year of Blogging)🎉🎉 Thank You, Lord.
Today, 04 Nov 2018, marks the first year of existence of my self – hosted website (www.thechroniclesofbenia.com) . I only shared the link six months later. I need to think and imagine in my mind first the consequences of putting my thoughts, mainly stories, reflections and prayers, to everyone’s eyes before I had the courage to share it. I was filled with fear but hope and joy to be able to share stories and lessons gained in journey with God outweighed the former.
First Year Anniversary
As I don’t have any prizes or gifts as my thanksgivig to you my readers, I decided to give you the best gift that I can offer. I offered a prayer of rosary for each one of you before the Mass today (04 November) at Church of Divine Mercy . It is also very timely that the today’s gospel is about the greatest commandment of loving God and loving our neighbors.
(Mark 12: 28-34)
Here is my gratitude expressed through the Rosary of Glorious Mystery today.
You are the author and finisher of our faith. Our rock and strength.
I thank You for the gift of writing and readers. I remember all of them and even those whom I don’t know who are followers. (Thank You. ) I pray for all of them now, they are all Yours. Please give them perfect health of their bodies. Please grant them healing spiritually, mentally, emotionally and even financially. Please take over their minds whenever problems, challenges and doubts seem to be controlling their thoughts. Please send them Your peace and lit the fire of hope or joy in whatever manner they may translate it. It is my deepest prayer that You strengthen their faith as they journey along uphill and downhill of life.
I pray for their vocation that You will lead and guide them in fulfilling the vocation that You planned for them even before You created the foundations of the world. Their love for You guides them in making decision rightly and lovingly.
I thank You in advance for the countless victories that You will cause to happen in their lives.
I sealed this prayer with the intercession of Mother Mary.
Thank you for reading. God bless.
This is a prayer shared by Father Pat Fitzpatrick C.S.Sp in his homily on 30 October 2018 at Daily TV Mass.
Before anyone can move forward from injustice, injury, failure, loss, rejection; acceptance is needed.
Finding it difficult to accept things? Reflect and pray this.
I see, Lord, in my tight hands the representation of my self.
I held on to myself, my cares, my possessions, my pride.
I shut you out, lest, you will change me.
And I shut other people, lest, they know me and maybe hurt me.
With closed fist I could strike – out against those who threaten me.
But, I see in the tight knuckles and tensed forearms what is this doing to me.
I’m opt tight, tense, lonely and I’m probably destroying myself.
And so I slowly open my hands and release myself to You, Lord.
Take me as I am, my guilt, my burdens, my cares, my emptiness and maybe my loneliness.
With open hands and out-stretched arms, my arms no longer hurt.
My knuckles are no longer tight.
Thank you, Lord, for release, for peace, for freedom.
With open hands, I no longer shut You out or strike – out against others.
Open hands are for helping. Fill them with Your love, O God.
Show them what to do, how to give, how to serve.
And now, I’m aware of the hurts and needs of others.
I placed them in these hands.
I gather them into my hands.
And I lift them to You, for Your sustaining grace and healing touch.
No longer alone, I reached out to grasp the hands of brothers or sisters.
I thank You Lord for him and for her.
Shape us together sister, brother, everyone.
Shape us together into the body of Christ.

I have been keeping journals since I guess the day I learned how to write and capture emotions that I can’t express and things I wish to treasure in my memories. Journaling started…Read More
