The prayers of Preca: pray with the new St. George

In honor of St. George Preca's canonization today, June 3, 2007, Fighting Irish Thomas had its staff of translators change George's favorite short prayers from Maltese to English. So for the first time in English, here's the list. As the Irish say, "Pray Like A Champion Today!"
"Lord God, you are here and I am in you."

"Lord God, I need you."

"To God alone honor and glory."

"God the Father, give me the spirit of Christ your Son."

"Everything comes from you, everything with your ability, everything is for you."

"Gentle Father of the Blessed Jesus Christ."

"You are God alone and you created everything."

"God, O Father, take away your look from the evil of this world."

"Lord God, keep me always in your hands."

"The earth is full of your mercy."

"Lord God, I am your son and you are my Father."

"Remember, O God, that your hands formed and made me."

"I am right, O Jesus, to thank you."

"O Jesus, be to me not a Judge but a Savior."

"Let Jesus Christ be blessed."

I ask you only one question.

How many internet sites have an in house Maltese translator????

There is only one:


When I get to Malta I will ask:
Hawn knisja kattolka fil-vicin?
Nixtieq nara l-knisja
X'hin hija l-quddiesa?

JimAroo-We not only have our own translator of Maltese, but a blog research team (see June 5th entry) and our own prayer group, The Suffering Irish. Not to mention some outstanding orthodox writers for the "Friends" site. -Tom
