My dear Redeemer,
it is not from custom or human respect 
that I come to receive You;
but it is solely to love and be united with You,
to live by You and for You,
to be delivered from my miseries,
to clothe myself with Your virtues,
to strengthen myself against my enemies;
it is to ask from You the exaltation of the Church,
Your beloved spouse,
the conversion of sinners,
perseverance for the just,
and deliverance for the poor souls in Purgatory.
Purify more and more my intentions,
rectify them, O my Jesus, 
render them conformable to You;
this is my sole desire.

I hope to love You for all eternity. O Eternal God! 
Oh that I had always loved You! 
Oh that I had died rather than have offended You! 
I give You my will, my liberty; 
dispose of me as You please. 
May my only happiness be to please You, O Infinite Goodness.
O my God! I rejoice in that You art infinitely happy. 

You are omnipotent; make me a Saint. 
You have sought me while I was fleeing from You; 
You loved me when I despised Your love; 
do not abandon me, now that I seek You and love You. 
Today I give myself wholly to You.

Gracious and Holy Father,
Please give me:
intellect to understand you,
reason to discern you,
diligence to seek you,
wisdom to find you,
a spirit to know you,
a heart to meditate upon you,
ears to hear you,
eyes to see you,
a tongue to proclaim you,
a way of life pleasing to you,
patience to wait for you
and perseverance to look for you.
Grant me a perfect end,
your holy presence,
a blessed resurrection
and life everlasting.

My Jesus, I place all my sins before you. 
In my estimation they do not deserve pardon, 
but I ask you to close your eyes 
to my want of merit
and open them to your infinite merit. 

Since you willed to die for my sins,
grant me forgiveness for all of them. 
May no longer feel the burden of my sins, 
a burden that oppresses me beyond measure. 

Assist me, dear Jesus, 
for I desire to become good
no matter what the cost.
Take away, destroy, and root out
whatever you find in me
that is contrary to your holy will. 
At the same time, dear Jesus, illuminate me 
so that I may walk in your holy light.

My good Angel, 
you come from heaven; 
God has sent you to take care of me. 
Oh, shelter me under your wings. 
Lighten my path, direct my steps. 
Do not leave me, 
stay quite near me 
and defend me against the spirit of evil. 
But above all come to my help 
in the last struggle of my life. 
Deliver my soul so that with you it may praise, 
love and contemplate the goodness of God 
forever and ever. 

Amen

O my Jesus, forgive my ungratefulness  
if I loved You too little, after so many graces. 
You gave all Yourself to me; 
I give all myself to You. 
You love those that love You. I love You; 
do You also love me. 
If I love You only a little, 
give me the love You require of me. 
What have You not done to oblige me to love You? 
Make me conquer all things to please You.
 

Accept the love of a soul which has offended You so deeply. 
Show me the immense good You are, 
that I may love You exceedingly. 
I desire to love You exceedingly in this life, 
that I may love You exceedingly in the next.

O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
I offer you all my prayers, works,
and suffering of this day:
for all the intentions of your Sacred heart,
in union with the holy sacrifice of the Mass
throughout the world,
in reparation for all my sins,
for the intentions of all our associates,
and in particular,
for the intention of our Holy Father,

Amen.

June 19, 2017

As Morning breaks I think of you, O Lord, 
and my desire is to serve You joyfully. 
With gladness, I consecrate this day to Your Sacred Heart, 
and offer whatever joys and sacrifices may come my way. 
Thank You for the graces You will send, 
all the love, all the beauty, 
and the ways You will answer my prayers.

Heavenly Father,
you entrusted your Son Jesus,
the child of Mary,
to the care of Joseph, an earthly father.
Bless all fathers
as they care for their families.
Give them strength and wisdom,
tenderness and patience;
support them in the work they have to do,
protecting those who look to them,
as we look to you for love and salvation,
through Jesus Christ our rock and defender.

Amen.

O my Jesus! I am entirely spent for You, 
as You spent Yourself entirely for me! 
If I had died while I was in sin, 
I could no more have loved You; 
now that I can love You, 
I will love You as much as I can. 
To You I consecrate all the remainder of my life. 
I wish only, and I wish in all things, 
that which You desire. 
When I see You for the first time, my Jesus, 
may it be with a look of mercy. 
May I die rather than ever offend You again. 
You will not leave me, I will not leave You; 
so shall our love endure in this world and in the next. 

June 16, 2017

My Jesus, You alone are sufficient for me. 
My love, do not permit me to separate myself from You. 
When shall I be able to say, 
"My God, I cannot lose You any more?"

Lord, who am I, 
that You should desire so much to be loved by me? 
And who shall I love, if I don’t love You, my Jesus? 
Here I am, Lord; dispose of me as You please. 
Give me Your love; I ask nothing more. 
Make me all Yours before I die. 

Eternal Father, for the love of Jesus Christ have pity on me. 
My God, I wish for You alone, and nothing more. 

June 15, 2017

My holy Angel Guardian, 
ask the Lord to bless any journey which I undertake, 
that it may profit the health of my soul and body; 
that I may reach its end, 
and that, returning safe and sound, 
I may find my family in good health. 
Guard, guide and preserve us.

Amen.

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.

Amen.

June 13, 2017

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.

June 12, 2017

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.
