O kind and good Mother,
whose own soul was pierced by the sword of sorrow,
look upon us while, in our sickness,
we arraign ourselves beside you
on the Calvary where your Jesus hangs.

Endowed with the high grace of suffering,
and hopeful of fulfilling in our own flesh
what is wanting in our sharing of Christ's passion,
on behalf of his Mystical Body, the Church,
we consecrate to you ourselves and our pain.
We pray that you will place them
on that Altar of the Cross to which Jesus is affixed.
May they be little victims of atonement for our salvation,
and for the salvation of all peoples.

O Mother of Sorrows,
accept this consecration.
Strengthen our hopeful hearts,
that as partakers of Christ's sufferings
we may also share in his comfort now and for evermore.

Amen.

Gracious and Loving God, let Your spirit
be with us on this anniversary of our freedom.
Hear our prayers, and help us, through our faith, to use
the opportunities of our democracy to shape a society
that is more respectful of the life, dignity and the rights
of all people, especially the poor and vulnerable.
We ask this through Christ, Your son, who lives and
reigns forever and ever.

Amen.

Angel of Schools, at the bidding of Peter,
thousands today are saluting you.
We too are claiming your care and counsel,
Angel of Schools, be an angel to us.
Come to our aid when you hear us calling,
Light up the dark, make the rough places plain,
Bring to our thoughts the unknown or forgotten,
Give us the words that we seek for in vain.

Lord, forgive all reviling of Mary's name!
We beseech You, hear us!

Lord, forgive all contempt of her Immaculate Conception!
We beseech You, hear us!

Lord, forgive all coldness in the honoring of Mary!
We beseech You, hear us!

Lord, forgive all contempt of Mary's pictures!
We beseech You, hear us!

Lord, forgive all neglect of the Holy Rosary!
We beseech You, hear us!

Lord, forgive all indifference to Mary's Motherly love!

You, O eternal Trinity,
are a deep sea into which,
the more I enter,
the more I find.
And the more I find,
the more I seek.
O abyss, O eternal Godhead,
O sea profound,
what more could you give me than yourself?

Amen.

Be with us,
Lord, tonight.
Stay to adore and praise,
and give thanks for us while we sleep;
to draw down mercy and grace upon the world;
to give strength to the suffering souls
in purgatory in their long night of waiting.

Great convert and Apostle of the Gentiles,
you became Christlike
and knew only Christ Crucified.
Though extremely learned,
you relied completely on the Wisdom received
from the Spirit
and taught from the abundance of your heart.
Instruct modern priests and evangelists
those who preach Christ to others.
Let them realize that their actions
speak louder than any words they may use.
Teach them to use their talents
in conveying their God, given message
but to rely above all on the promptings of the Spirit.

Amen.

Sacred Heart of Jesus
today I wish to live in You,
in Your grace,
in which I desire at all costs to persevere.
Keep me from sin
and strengthen my will by helping me to keep watch over my senses,
my imagination, and my heart.
Help me to correct my faults which are the source of sin.
I beg You to do this,
O Jesus, through Mary,
Your Immaculate Mother.

Father, the bishop Cyril courageously taught
that Mary was the Mother of God.
May we who cherish this belief
receive salvation through the incarnation of Christ Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

God the Father unbegotten,
only-begotten Son,
and Holy Spirit, the Comforter;
holy and undivided Trinity,
with all our hearts we acknowledge You:
Glory to You forever.

Almighty, ever-living God,
who has permitted us Your servants,
in our profession of the true faith,
to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity,
and in the power of that majesty to adore the Unity,
grant, that by steadfastness in this same faith,
we may be ever guarded against all adversity:
through Christ our Lord.

Set us free, save us, vivify us, O Blessed Trinity!

June 25, 2019

Stay with us, O Lord,
to guard the innocent,
to sustain the tempted,
to raise the fallen,
to curb the power of the evil one,
to prevent sin.
O Good Shepherd,
stay with Your sheep,
Secure them against the perils that beset them.
Stay, above all,
with the suffering and dying.
Grant us a quiet night and a perfect end.
Be our merciful Shepherd to the last,
that without fear we may appear before You as our Judge.

Blood of Christ, inebriate me!
Inebriate me with Your Love,
that I may be absorbed in Your interests and Your Will.
Absorbed so as to be unmindful of my ills and petty cares.
Unmindful of weariness and pain,
heartache, and disappointment.
Heedless of the lash of cruel words,
and patient under wrongs.

Amen.

June 22, 2019

Give me the grace to long for Your holy Sacraments,
and especially to rejoice in the presence of Your body,
sweet Saviour Christ,
in the Holy Sacrament of the altar.

Amen.

June 21, 2019

O Holy Mary, my mother,
into your blessed trust and custody,
and into the care of your mercy
I this day, every day,
and in the hour of my death,
commend my soul and my body.
To you I commit all my anxieties and miseries,
my life and the end of my life,
that by your most holy intercession
and by your merits
all my actions may be directed
and disposed
according to your will
and that of your Son.

Amen.
