Daily Prayer - Humbled and Penitent

October 5, 2017

Behold me at Your feet, O Jesus of Nazareth, 
behold the most wretched of creatures, 
who comes into Your presence humbled and penitent! 
Have mercy on me, O Lord, 
according to Your great mercy!
I have sinned and my sins are always before You. 
Yet my soul belongs to You, 
for You have created it, 
and redeemed it with Your Precious Blood. 
Ah, grant that Your redeeming work be not in vain! 
Have pity on me; 
give me tears of true repentance; 
pardon me for I am Your child; 
pardon me as You pardoned the penitent thief; 
look upon me from Your throne in heaven 
and give me Your blessing.

Daily Prayer - Peace Prayer of St. Francis

October 4, 2017

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy. 

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive, 
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, 
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.


Daily Prayer - Protect Our Families

October 3, 2017

By the Immaculate Heart of Mary, 
Queen of Peace, set up Your kingdom in our country. 
Enter closely into the midst of our families 
and make them Your own 
through the solemn enthronement of Your Sacred Heart 
so that no one cry may respond from home to home. 
May the triumphant Heart of Jesus be everywhere loved, 
blessed and glorified forever! 
Honor and glory to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary. 
Sacred Heart of Jesus protect our families.


Daily Prayer - Pure in Thought

October 2, 2017

Jesus, Lover of chastity, 
Mary, Mother most pure, 
and Joseph, chaste guardian of the Virgin, 
to you I come at this hour, 
begging you to plead with God for me. 
I earnestly wish to be pure in thought, 
word and deed in imitation of your own holy purity.

Obtain for me, then, 
a deep sense of modesty
which will be reflected in my external conduct. 

Heart of Jesus, Fount of all purity, 
have mercy on us. 

Daily Prayer - Deliver Them from Purgatory

October 1, 2017

My Jesus, 
by the sorrows You suffered in Your agony in the Garden, 
in Your scourging and crowning with thorns, 
on the way to Calvary, 
in Your crucifixion and death, 
have mercy on the souls in purgatory, 
and especially on those that are most forsaken; 
Deliver them from the terrible torments they endure; 
call them and admit them to Your most sweet embrace in paradise.


Daily Prayer - Memorare to St. Anne

but hear me and answer my prayer.

Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting, 
that Your love is greater 
than any love I’ve ever known.
Greater than my mother’s love. 
Greater than my Father’s love.
Greater than my sister’s love. 
Greater than my brother’s love.
Greater than my best friend’s love.
Greater than my spouse’s love.

Daily Prayer - Run to Your Protection

September 28, 2017

Remember, most loving Virgin Mary,

was left unaided.

but be merciful and hear my prayer.


Daily Prayer - Remind Me

September 27, 2017

Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting,
that You are powerful enough to single-handed 
handle all of my problems, no matter, 
how large, how small, how complex or how simple.
Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting, 
that You are stronger in every way 
than my strongest enemies.
Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting, 
that You are mightier than any bad wishes against me.
Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting, 
that You are my protector.
Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting, 
that I don’t have to fear anyone.
Remind me, Lord. I keep forgetting, 
that You capable of helping me with anything;
I feel overwhelmed by, I feel helpless about,
I feel anxious about, or I feel defeated by.

Daily Prayer - Memorare to St. Joseph

September 26, 2017

Remember, O most chaste spouse of the Virgin Mary, 
that never was it known that anyone 
who implored your help and sought your intercession

I fly to you and beg your protection. 
Despise not O Guardian of the Redeemer my humble supplication, 
but in your bounty, 
hear and answer me.

September 25, 2017

Most sweet Jesus, 
humbly kneeling at Your feet, 
we renew the consecration of our family to Your Divine Heart. 
Be our King forever. 
In You we have full and entire confidence. 
May Your spirit penetrate our thoughts, 
our desires, our words and our works. 
Bless our undertakings, 
share in our joys, 
in our trials and in our labors. 
Grant us to know You more, 
to serve You without faltering

Daily Prayer - Bless the Clergy

September 24, 2017

Heavenly Father, 
in your wisdom you have called 
certain women and men
to a life of special consecration 
so that in prayerful observance 
of a lifestyle of poverty, 
chaste celibacy and obedience,
they might be witnesses to us 
that as St. Paul says, 
"our true citizenship is in heaven." 
Give them, Lord, 
the grace of joy and perseverance 
in their holy vocation. 
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.

Daily Prayer - Resolve to Do Better

September 23, 2017

Most merciful Jesus, 
from now on I want whatever You want. 
I have made up my mind to avoid all sin 
and to follow You with bravery and courage. 
I will try above all to correct myself and do better. 
O my Redeemer, 
strengthen my resolution by the merits 
of the Blood You shed for me on Calvary. 
I really want to make up for the past. 
With Your help, which I humbly ask for, 
I will try hard to do whatever You want of me.

Eternal Father,
I offer You the Sacred heart of Jesus,

and during all my life.

To make up for the good I ought to have done and
that I have neglected this day
and during all my life.

September 21, 2017

Remember, Heart of Jesus,

O Merciful Heart of Jesus, 
Immaculate Heart of Mary, 
and you, O glorious St. Joseph,
