My name is Rosa and I am a Roman Catholic consecrated to God. Sermo Veritas is a blog where my aim will be to provide the Holy Word of God; Words by St. Therese and other Saints; Saint of the Day; Reflections and Meditations; Prayers; and, at times, Reblogs from those who I follow all for the greater glory of God . Everyone is welcomed to submit prayer requests and/or questions by accessing the arrow next to archives. Should you not have a Tumblr account, you may also grace us with your feedback by clicking on "comments" found underneath each post. God bless you. Sermo Veritas is on Facebook: http://facebook.com/sermoveritas "To keep the Word of Jesus is the condition of our happiness, the proof of our love for Him." --St. Therese of Lisieux.

Renew in your Church, we pray, O Lord, the spirit with which you endowed your Bishop Saint Augustine that, filled with the same spirit, we may thirst for you, the sole fount of true wisdom, and seek you, the author of heavenly love. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
People hate the truth for the sake of whatever it is that they love more than truth. They love truth when it shines warmly on them, and hate it when it rebukes them. The truth is like a lion. You do not have to defend it. Let it loose. It will defend itself.– St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo
O God, who console the sorrowful and who mercifully accepted the motherly tears of Saint Monica for the conversion of her son Augustine, grant us, through the intercession of them both, that we may bitterly regret our sins and find the grace of your pardon. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
"John answered and said, ‘No one can receive anything except what has been given from heaven. You yourselves can testify that I said that I am not the Christ, but that I was sent before Him. The one who has the bride is the bridegroom; the best man, who stands and listens for Him, rejoices greatly at the bridegroom’s voice. So this joy of mine has been made complete. He must increase; I must decrease." (John 3:27-30)
