Loving God is the core of Christianity; the centre of our faith! Even in the best days, we sometimes need a little help to rekindle that love.

When we look at a crucifix, it should remind us of the enormous love God has for us. This love that is on full display should then drives us to love God in return.


However, our love of God is often very little. We fail to make any effort to love God, even though he has loved us so much.


How to rekindle our Love for God?

God never ceases to show us Love and always pulls mankind towards himself. This is evident in his ultimate sacrifice; that the Son of God would sacrifice his life to save mankind. Every day at mass, we celebrate this great gesture of Love and his triumphant resurrection. We receive him in the Eucharist every day.


No matter what we are going through in life, we should never turn our back on him. If we desire to increase that love, to constantly yarn for him, one of the best ways to do so is to ask God for help. The source of love can in turn, teach us how to love.


Here is a short prayer from Fr. Francis Xavier Lasance’s book With God that begs God for a more loving heart.



My Jesus, you well know that I love you, but I do not love you enough. Oh, help me to love you more. O Love which burns always and is never extinguished, my God, you who are charity itself, kindle in my heart that divine fire which consumes the saints and transforms them into you. Amen.


A new prayer for the Virgin Mary has gone viral and thanks to her “for being a mother who will never leave” us.

This Marian prayer has been written and it will move you to tears. A book by Father Jose Kentenich in his work, Ninos ante Dios, [Children Before God], contains a new Marian prayer. We wanted to share this prayer with you, so you too can thank Mary for her presence in your life.


Here is the incredible new Marian prayer:

“Dear Mother, I surrender to you all that I am and have. I am called to give you my life. It doesn’t matter that I am broken. It doesn’t matter that I am wounded. My wound becomes a fissure that opens me. I don’t want to close the wound. I don’t want to seal the fissure. Thank you, Mother, for loving me. [T]hank you for being with me. Thank you for walking at my side every step of the way. [T]hank you for being a mother who will never leave me in times of difficulty. [T]hank you for being my Mother.”


Kentenich wrote the prayer as a reminder that he should not worry, “Mother will take care of it.” This is true. Our Mother in heaven takes care of us and she never leaves us. Moreover, She did not leave Christ even when he was being crucified. She will not leave us, no matter what happens in our lives.


Even when we face trouble, we need only to remember that Our Lady is with us. It will help relieve our worries. Let us recite this Marian prayer often. Let us take a moment to thank Our Mother. Amen.
