The BreadCast
Daily Exposition of the Readings of Catholic Mass, from the book 'Our Daily Bread' by James H. Kurt (now with Chanted Verses, and added text of Prayer for the Day). Additional cast - SaintsCast, entries from the book 'Prayers to the Saints' (also by James Kurt). Both books bear imprimatur.

O Shepherd of the Church

who led her through

a difficult time,

seeing to her reform

in faith and morals,

in teaching and prayer,

that the foundation once established

by the Lord Jesus Christ

might be confirmed

and strengthened,

kept from decay –

pray this day, too,

MotherChurch will be blessed

by the nourishing food

of the Spirit,

that she might be fed

at the Lord’s table

and all might be encouraged to enter

the gates of Heaven

she guards and opens

to all souls in communion

with the Savior and His way…

May Peter lead us unto His Day.
