"It is vanity, therefore, to seek and trust in riches twhat perish. It is vanity also to court honor and to be puffed up with pride. It is vanity to follow the lusts of the body and to desire things for which severe punishment later must come. It is vanity to wish for long life and to care little about a well-spent life. It is vanity to be concerned with the present only and not to make provision for things to come. It is vanity to love what passes quickly and not to look ahead where eternal joy abides." 

 Thomas Kempis

 𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐇𝐞𝐥𝐩 𝐌𝐞! In every need let me come to you with humble trust saying,

 𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐩 𝐦𝐞! In all my doubts, perplexities and temptations, 

𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐩 𝐦𝐞! In hours of loneliness, weariness and trial,

𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐩 𝐦𝐞! In the failure of my plans and hopes, 

𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐩 𝐦𝐞! In disappointments, troubles and sorrows, 

𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐩 𝐦𝐞! When I throw myself on your tender love as a Father and a Saviour 

𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐩 𝐦𝐞! When I feel impatient and my cross is heavy, 

𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐩 𝐦𝐞! When I am ill, and my head and hands cannot do their work, 

𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐩 𝐦𝐞! Always, always, in joys or sorrows, in falls and short-comings 

𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐩 𝐦𝐞! and never forsake me. Amen.

 "Preach to all, young and old alike, that they must remember they are children of Mary Help of Christians. Tell them she wants to free them from the dangers of the world and lead them to Heaven. And to those who honor her with their prayers and with the fulfillment of their duty, she will grant infinite graces and favors.” 

Saint John Bosco

  "Oh, my Lord and Savior, support me in that hour in the strong arms of Your Sacraments, and by the fresh fragrance of Your consolations. Let the absolving words be said over me, and the holy oil sign and seal me, and Your own Body be my food, and Your Blood my sprinkling; and let my sweet Mother, Mary, breathe on me, and my Angel whisper peace to me, and my glorious Saints smile upon me; that in them all, and through them all, I may receive the gift of perseverance, and die, as I desire to live, in Your faith, in Your Church, in Your service, and in Your love. Amen."

“This is the hour of intransigence, this is the time to speak the language that Christ taught us in the Sermon on the Mount: Yes, yes. No, no. This is the hour of invincible obstinacy, of persistent constancy, of continued fidelity. It is true, we do not have the strength of numbers, we do not have the strength of money, we do not have the strength of weapons, we do not have the strength of the lodges or the hidden powers, but we have the strength of Christ and in the manner that this force radiates in us and Christ lives in us more than ourselves, in that same manner we will be invincible even in defeat because after all this is a temporary place, a place of testimony, and the important thing is that we are capable of being, until the time of our death, and especially at the hour of death, witnesses of the truth.”

 In several countries, the first of January is a feast of obligation: it requires attending the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

 O God, the beginning and the end of all things, Who art always the same, and Whose years fail not, we now, at the close of another year, kneel in adoration before Thee, and offer Thee our deepest thanks for the fatherly care with which Thou has watched over us during the past, for the many times Thou hast protected us from evils of soul and body, and for the numberless blessings, both temporal and spiritual, which Thou hast showered upon us. May it please Thee to accept the homage of our grateful hearts which we offer Thee in union with the infinite thanksgiving of Thy divine Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, Who with Thee liveth and reigneth forever and ever.
