Heavenly Mother, we kneel before you
to manifest the sorrow we feel
for the grievances that people cause you,
and to atone by our prayers and sacrifices
for the offenses with which they return your love.
Obtain for them and for us the pardon of so many sins.
Hasten the conversion of sinners
that they may love Jesus
and cease to offend the Lord,
already so much offended.
Turn your eyes of mercy toward us,
that we may love God with all our heart on earth
and enjoy Him forever in heaven.

Amen.

St. Joseph, who felt the tribulation and worry of a parent
when the child Jesus was lost,
protect our dear children for time and eternity.
May you be their father and counsellor.
Let them, like Jesus,
grow in age as well as in wisdom and grace
before God and men.
Preserve them from the corruption of his world,
and give us the grace one day to be united
with them in Heaven forever.

Amen.

O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints,
your love for God and Charity for His creatures,
made you worthy, when on earth,
to possess miraculous powers.
Miracles waited on your word,
which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety.
Encouraged by this thought,
I implore of you to answer my prayers.

You are the Saint of Miracles.
O gentle and loving St. Anthony,
whose heart was ever full of human sympathy,
whisper my petition into the ears of the Sweet Infant Jesus,
who loved to be folded in your arms;
and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours.

O God, bless my children with your life and presence.
May the example of your son
be the foundation upon which
their lives are built,
that the Gospel may always
be their hope and support.
Through your glory forever and ever.

God our Father,
You filled Saint Barnabas with faith
and the Holy Spirit
and sent him to convert the nations.
Help us to proclaim the gospel by word and deed.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

Supreme Lord of the harvest,
graciously accept us and the fruits of our toil,
in union with Christ Your Son,
as atonement for our sins,
for the growth of Your Church,
for peace and charity in our homes,
for salvation to all.

Amen.

Heavenly Father, bless my spouse whom you have given to me,
sharing in your wondrous work of creation.
May we see each other as equals
and treat each other with the love of Christ for his Church.
May Mary and Joseph be our guides
and help us to find your peace and your grace.

O Most Holy Virgin Mother,
we listen with grief to the complaints
of your Immaculate Heart
surrounded with the thorns placed therein
at every moment by the blasphemies
and ingratitude of ungrateful humanity.
We are moved by the ardent desire of loving you as Our Mother
and of promoting a true devotion to your Immaculate Heart.
Forgive the offenses we have caused you.
Have mercy on us and help us to grow in your love.

I adore You, Lord and creator,
hidden in the Blessed Sacrament.
I adore You for all the works of Your hands,
that reveal to me so much wisdom,
goodness and mercy, O Lord.
You have spread so much beauty over the earth,
and it tells me about Your beauty,
even though these beautiful things
are but a faint reflection of Your comprehensible Beauty.
And although You have hidden Yourself
and concealed Your Beauty,
my eye, enlightened by faith, reaches You
and my soul recognizes its Creator,
its Highest Good;
and my heart is completely immersed in prayer of adoration.

Amen.

O glorious St. Joseph,
to you God committed the care
of His only begotten Son
amid the many dangers of this world.
We come to you
and ask you to take under your special protection
the children God has given us.
Through holy baptism
they became children of God
and members of His holy Church.
We consecrate them to you today,
that through this consecration
they may become your foster children.
Guard them,
guide their steps in life,
form their hearts 
after the hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Hail! most blessed Jesus,
eternal Son of the Most High God,
Please be merciful to those for whom we pray;
You died on the cross for their sakes,
give rest to their souls.
To whom shall we turn, but to You?
You have the words of the eternal life,
by which You can shorten their sufferings,
and give them eternal rest.

June 4, 2019

O God, Source and Giver of all things,
who manifests Your infinite majesty,
power and goodness in the earth about us,
we give You honor and glory.

For the sun and rain,
for the manifold fruits of our fields,
for the increase of our herds and flocks,
we thank You.
For the enrichment of our souls with Divine grace,
we are grateful.

Hail Mary, White Lily of the Glorious
and always-serene Trinity.
Hail brilliant Rose of the Garden of heavenly delights:
O, you, by whom God wanted to be born,
and by whose nourishment the King of Heaven thrived.
Nourish our souls with effusions of divine grace.

Amen.

Father, source of light in every age,
the virgin conceived and bore Your Son
Who is called Wonderful God,
Prince of Peace.
May her prayer,
the gift of a mother's love,
be Your people's joy through all ages.
May her response,
born of a humble heart,
draw Your Spirit to rest on Your people.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

This day is full of beauty and adventure,
help me Lord to be fully alive to it all.
During this day, may I become a more thoughtful person,
a more prayerful person, a more generous and kindly person.
Help me not to be turned in on myself but
to be sensitive and helpful to others.
Let me do nothing today that will hurt anyone,
but let me help at least a little,
to make life more pleasant for those I meet.

When night comes, may I look back on this day without regrets;
and may nobody be unhappy because of anything
I have said or done or failed to do.

Lord God, bless this day for me and all of us.
Make it a day in which we grow a little more like your Son, 
and gentle as Mary His Mother.

Amen.
