Daughter of Israel,
Glory of all people.
Immaculate Maiden,
Joy of God.
Jesus has given you for our Mother.
You are our Queen,
pure and sinless.
We entrust ourselves to you.
Immaculate Mary.
Faithful one.

Gracious God of our ancestors,
You led Peter Julian Eymard,
like Jacob in times past,
on a journey of faith.
Under the guidance of Your gentle Spirit,
Peter Julian discovered the gift of love in the Eucharist
which Your Son Jesus offered for the hungers of humanity.

Grant that we may celebrate this mystery worthily,
adore it profoundly,
and proclaim it prophetically for Your greater glory.

Amen.

Jesus Christ, my God,
I adore You and I thank You
for the many favors You have bestowed on me this day.
I offer You my sleep
and all the moments of this night,
and I pray You to preserve me from sin.
Therefore, I place myself in Your most sacred side,
and under the mantle of our Blessed Lady, my Mother.
May the holy Angels assist me
and keep me in peace,
and may Your blessing be upon me.

Dearest Lord,
teach me to be generous;
teach me to serve You as You deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and not to ask for reward
save that of knowing I am doing Your Will.

July 30, 2019

O God, who made the Bishop St. Peter Chrysologus
an outstanding preacher of Your word,
grant, through his intercession,
that we may constantly ponder in our hearts
the mysteries of Your salvation
and faithfully express them in what we do.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns in unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever.

Amen.

July 29, 2019

O blessed St. Martha, your faith let you see beyond humanity.
With pure love for Jesus, you welcomed him into your home.
Pray for me that I may grow in faith, hope and love,
and that Jesus, who sat at your table, will hear me
and grant me a place at the banquet of eternal life.

Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel,
Defend us in battle
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil;
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
And do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
By the power of God, cast into hell
Satan and all evil spirits
Who wander through the world
Seeking the ruin of souls.

Amen.

July 27, 2019

God our Father,
may we always profit by the prayers
of the Virgin Mother Mary,
for You bring us life and salvation
through Jesus Christ her Son
Who lives and reigns with You
and the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever.

Amen.

July 26, 2019

Good Saint Anne,
obtain for me an increase of faith
in the great mystery of the Holy Eucharist.
Help me to see in this great Sacrament,
Christ our High Priest,
making real for me the saving grace
of His death on the cross;
feeding my soul with His Flesh and Blood
so that I may live in Him and He in me;
producing the unity of the people of God
and gathering His Church together.
By your powerful intercession with God,
help me to center my life around the altar
that I may inherit the promise of The Lord:

Amen.

July 25, 2019

O gracious God, we remember before You today
Your servant and apostle James,
first among the Twelve to suffer martyrdom
for the Name of Jesus Christ.
We pray that You will pour out
upon the leaders of your Church
that spirit of self-denying service
by which alone they may have
true authority among your people;
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with You
and the Holy Spirit, one God,
now and forever.

July 24, 2019

O Lord, you see how everywhere the winds have burst forth,
and the sea is convulsed with the great violence of the rising waves.
Command, we beseech You who alone are able,
both the winds and the sea.
Restore to mankind the true peace of your name,
that peace which the world cannot give,
and the calm of social harmony.
Under your inspiration may men overthrow the rule of greed,
bring back the love of God, justice,
charity toward neighbor, temperance in all desires.
May all recognize that they are subject to You,
and must serve You who are truth and salvation;
that without You they labor in vain.
In Your law is reason and fatherly kindness.
You are ever at hand with Your strength
and Your power to help man to keep it.

July 23, 2019

O Jesus! True liberty of angels,
Paradise of delights, remember the horror and sadness
which You endured when Your enemies,
like furious lions, surrounded You,
and by thousands of insults,
spits, blows, lacerations and other unheard-of-cruelties,
tormented You at will.
In consideration of these torments and insulting words,
I beseech You, O my Savior,
to deliver me from all my enemies,
visible and invisible, and to bring me, under Your protection,
to the perfection of eternal salvation.

Amen!

July 22, 2019

St. Mary Magdalene, woman of many sins,
who by conversion became the beloved of Jesus,
thank you for your witness that Jesus forgives
through the miracle of love.

You, who already possess eternal happiness
in His glorious presence, please intercede for me,
so that someday I may share in the same everlasting joy.

Amen.

July 21, 2019

Lord, source of eternal life and truth,
give to your shepherd, Francis, a spirit
of courage and right judgement,
a spirit of knowledge and love.
By governing with fidelity those entrusted to his care
may he, as successor to the apostle Peter and vicar of Christ,
build your Church into a sacrament of unity,
love, and peace for all the world.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,
your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever.

Amen.

July 20, 2019

All-powerful and ever-living God,
in the plan of your wisdom,
she who bore the Christ in her womb
was raised body and soul in glory to be with Him in heaven.
May we follow her example in reflecting Your holiness
and join her hymn of endless life and praise.

Amen.
