Catholics Care Initiative: Saint Joseph's Fire Relief Fund

A portion of your gift will go into Mater Dei Radio’s “Catholics Care” Initiative, supporting the Saint Joseph Salem Fire Relief Fund. Mater Dei Radio unites with the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon in prayerful support for the parish community of Saint Joseph Catholic Church, where a devastating fire caused extensive damage on August 31.

Fatima Prayer for Eucharistic Revival

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly.

I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended.

And, through the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of You the conversion of sinners.

My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I beg pardon for those who do not believe, nor adore, nor hope, nor love You.
