June 14, 2017

Lord, many times I stray from your light
and feel that I am not worthy to be called your child,
but I know Lord, 
that you are a forgiving Father
and that you accept me as I am.
I know that you love me 
like no other can love me,
that your love for me is so great and unconditional 
that it hurts me to hurt you.
Help me my Lord, 
to become more like you.
Help me to see you in others 
and help others see you in me.

You gave each one of us 
a mission to fulfil in our lives.
Help us to find it, 
to use it and share it with others.
Help us to understand the true meaning of life,
to know you, and to live with you.

My Queen! My Mother! 
I give you all myself,
and, to show my devotion to you,
I consecrate to you my eyes,
my ears, my mouth, my heart,
my entire self.
Wherefore, O loving Mother,
as I am your own, 
keep me, defend me,
as you property and possession.

O Jesus, I wish to receive You 
with the love of the most holy and loving souls,
with which Immaculate Mary received You.
With their Communion I unite this Communion of mine.
Most holy Virgin, my Mother, Mary, 
behold I am going to receive your Son.
I would wish to have your heart,
and the love with which you communicated:
give me this morning your Jesus, 
as you gave Him 
to the shepherds and to the Magi.
I wish to receive Him from your most pure hands; 
tell Him that I am your servant, 
and that I am devoted to you; 
and when He comes to me, 
He will look on me with a more loving eye, 
and will unite Himself more closely to me.

June 10, 2017

My soul, the happy hour is arrived;
Jesus comes to dwell in my poor heart.
Behold the King of heaven,
my Redeemer and my God,
coming to me;
I prepare myself to receive Him with love;
say to Him with the most ardent desire:
Come, O my Jesus,
come to me:
I desire to receive You,
before You gave Yourself to me,
I desire to give You my miserable heart;
accept it,
come and take full possession of it.
Come, my God, make haste;
do not delay.

June 9, 2017

My loving Jesus, 
out of the grateful love I bear You, 
and to make reparation for my unfaithfulness to grace,
I give You my heart, 
and I consecrate myself wholly to You; 
and with Your help 
I purpose never to sin again. 


June 8, 2017

My soul,
open my heart;
so Jesus can give me every good gift;
He loves me ardently.
Hope, then, 
for great favors from my Lord,
Who, through an impulse of love, 
comes to me all love. 
Yes, my Jesus, my hope, 
I trust in Your goodness, 
that in giving Yourself to me this morning, 
You will kindle in my poor soul 
the flames of Your love, 
and of an ardent desire to please You, 
that, from this day forward, 
I may wish only what You wish.

My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior;
Because He has regarded the lowliness of His handmaid;
for behold, henceforth all generations shall call me blessed;
Because He who is mighty has done great things for me,
and Holy is His Name;
And His mercy is from generation to generation on those who fear Him.
He has shown might with His arm,
He has scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.
He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
and has exalted the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has given help to Israel, His servant, mindful of His mercy -
Even as He spoke to our father -
to Abraham and to his posterity forever.

O most holy Heart of Jesus, 
fountain of every blessing, 
I adore You, I love You, 
and with a lively sorrow for my sins, 
I offer You this poor heart of mine. 
Make me humble, patient, pure, 
and wholly obedient to Your will.

Grant, good Jesus, 
that I may live in You and for You. 
Protect me in the midst of danger, 
comfort me in all my afflictions, 
give me health of body, 
assistance in my temporal needs, 
Your blessing on all that I do, 
and the grace of a holy death. 


June 5, 2017

In the abundance of your mercies, 
O Lord, remember all your people; 
all those present who pray with us; 
all our brethren on land, 
at sea, or in the air, 
in every place of Your domain, 
who call upon your love for mankind. 
Upon all, pour down your great mercy, 
that we, saved in body and in soul, 
may persevere unfailingly; 
and that, in our confidence, 
we may extol your exalted and blessed Name, 
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, 
always, now and forever. 


June 4, 2017

O Master and holy God, 
who are beyond our understanding: 
at your word, light came forth out of darkness. 
In your mercy, you gave us rest through night-long sleep, 
and raised us up to glorify your goodness 
and to offer our supplication to You. 
Now, in your own tender love, 
accept us who adore You 
and give thanks to You 
with all our heart. 
Grant us all our requests, 
if they lead to salvation; 
give us the grace of manifesting 
that we are children of light and day, 
and heirs to your eternal reward.

Lord our God,
loving Father,
we humbly pray to you
for our beloved missionaries,
heralds of the Gospel.

May our prayers
reach their hearts
that they may feel our love,
our strength,
our faith.

May our prayers
reach their hearts
that they continue
with your zeal
the mission
you entrust them with.

May their presence
in their community
be a reminder
of your presence among us.

God of my life, 
I welcome this new day. 
It is Your gift to me, 
the first day of the rest of my life. 
I thank You for the gift of being alive this morning. 
I thank You for the sleep which has refreshed me. 
I thank You for the chance to begin life all over again.

Lord, this day is full of promise and of opportunity. 
Help me to waste none of it. 
This day is full of mystery and of the unknown. 
Help me to face it without fear or anxiety. 
This day is full of beauty and adventure. 
Help me to be fully alive to it all.

Merciful Lord, who prayed that there be one flock and one shepherd, 
I ask the light of faith 
for those who do not know You in Your Eucharistic Presence. 
Give them the joy of Your protecting presence. 
Bring them into the one fold 
of which You are the master and Lord. 
Forgive them their sins and teach them the way of repentance. 
In the end bring them into the larger circle of Your family, 
to God our Father, 
to Mary our Mother, 
and to You our beloved Brother.


May 31, 2017

Lord God Almighty, 
who has safely brought us to the beginning of this day, 
defend us in the same by Your mighty power, 
that this day we may fall into no sin, 
but that all our words may so proceed, 
and all our thoughts and actions 
may be so directed as to do always 
that which is just in Your sight. 
Through Christ our Lord.
