Saint Vincent Pallotti,
you were molded by God, the infinite love.
You answered God's call to serve Him.
You were there for those seeking counsel,
for the sick, for the youth and the aging,
for the rich and the poor,
for people of any profession and walk of life.

Now I call upon you to intercede for me.
I ask you to submit my petitions to God.
Be my helper
as I place this prayer before God the Father,
through Jesus Christ.
Do not leave me without your help.
Show me the way to Christ.
Through the Spirit,
lead me to the Father.

O Mary, we pray to you
for our Christian brothers and sisters
who are still separated
from our Catholic family.
See how a glorious group of them
celebrate with fidelity and love.
See also how among another group,
who are so intent on calling themselves Christians,
there now dawns the remembrance
and the veneration of you,
O most holy Lady.
Call these children of yours to the one unity
under your motherly and heavenly aid.

O Little St. Agnes,
so young and yet made so strong
and wise by the power of God,
protect by your prayers
all the young people of every place
whose goodness and purity are threatened
by the evils and impurities of this world.

Give them strength in temptation
and a true repentance when they fail.
Help them to find true Christian friends
to accompany them in following the Lamb of God
and finding safe pastures in His Church
and in her holy sacraments.

May you lead us to the wedding banquet of heaven
to rejoice with you
and all the holy virgin martyrs in Christ
who lives and reigns forever and ever.

Amen.

Blessed Mary,
look upon the church,
look upon the most responsible members
of the Mystical Body of Christ
gathered about you to thank you
and to celebrate you as their Mother.

Holy Mary, bless the great assembly of the hierarchical church,
which also gives birth to brothers and sisters of Christ,
the firstborn among redeemed humankind.

O God of my soul,
I am sincerely sorry
for not having loved You.
Instead of having loved You,
I have, for the sake of my pleasures,
offended and despised Your infinite goodness:
I have turned my back upon You;
in a word, O my God,
I have voluntarily lost You.
Lord, I am sorry,
from the bottom of my heart,
for all my sins.
I hate above all things the offences,
which I have committed against You.
I hope You have already cleansed me
from the stain of sin
in the sacrament of penance,
but I desire to become still purer in Your sight.
Vouchsafe then to wash in Your Blood this soul,
which You wish soon to make Your dwelling place.

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.

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,
and the gratitude of my heart
will ever be yours.

Amen.

January 16, 2019

Heavenly Father, fill my heart with
a tender affection for Your Goodness,
a hatred for my faults,
and a love for my neighbor,

Let me always remember to be
submissive to Your word,
faithful to my friends,
and charitable to my enemies.

O Mary,
look upon all mankind,
this modern world in which 
the Divine Will calls us to live and work.
It is a world that has turned its back 
on the light of Christ;
then it fears and bemoans the frightening shadows
that its actions have created on all sides.
May your most human voice,
O most beautiful of virgins,
O most worthy of mothers,
O blessed among women,
invited the world to turn its eyes
toward the life that is the light of man,
toward you who are the precursor-lamp of Christ,
Who is the sole and the highest Light of the world.
Implore for the world
to converse, by prayer, with its Maker,
whose mysterious and blesses image
it reflects within itself.

Be our King, O Lord,
not only of the faithful who have never forsaken You,
but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned You,
grant that they may quickly return to their Father's house and sit at Your table
Call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith,
so that soon there may be but one flock and one shepherd.

January 13, 2019

Lord God, you revealed your Son in the waters of the Jordan
and anointed him with the power of the Holy Spirit
to proclaim good news to all people.
Sanctify us by the same Spirit,
that we may proclaim the healing power of the gospel
by acts of love in your name.

Amen.

January 12, 2019

O Maria, transform my heart unto yours.
Place around it a wreath of purity,
adorned in virtue.

Take my heart, dear Mother,
consecrated as your own.
Present it to God the Father
as an offering from me to you.

Help me O Maria in each day
to make your heart more known.

Amen.

January 11, 2019

Almighty and eternal God.
May your grace kindle in all of us
a love for the many unfortunate people
whom poverty and misery
reduce to a condition of life
unworthy of human beings.

Arouse in the hearts of those who call you Father
a hunger and thirst for social justice
and for fraternal charity
in deeds and in truth.

Grant, O Lord,
peace in our days,
peace to souls,
peace to families,
peace to our country,
and peace among nations.

Amen.

January 10, 2019

Grant, O Lord, to Your Church,
assurance of faith and healing;
give peace and order to all nations,
and make the earth resound
from pole to pole with one cry:

Praise to the Divine Heart
that wrought our salvation:
to it be glory
and honor forever.

Amen.

Most sweet Jesus,
Redeemer of the human race,
look down upon us,
humbly prostrate before Your altar.

We are Yours and Yours we wish to be;
but to be more surely united with You,
behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today
to Your Most Sacred Heart.

Many, indeed, have never known You;
many, too, despising Your precepts,
have rejected You.

Have mercy on them all,
most merciful Jesus,
and draw them to Your Sacred Heart.
