Lord, Father all-powerful, 
and ever-living God, 
I thank You, 
for even though I am a sinner, 
Thy unprofitable servant, 
not because of my worth, 
but in the kindness of Your mercy, 
You have fed me with the precious Body 
and Blood of Your Son, 
our Lord Jesus Christ. 

I pray that this holy communion 
may not bring me condemnation 
and punishment but forgiveness and salvation.

May the tribute of my humble ministry 
be pleasing to You, Holy Trinity. 

Grant that the sacrifice which I, 
unworthy as I am, 
have offered in the presence of Your majesty 
may be acceptable to You. 

Through Your mercy may it bring forgiveness to me 
and to all for whom I have offered it: 
through Christ our Lord. 

Amen.

Father, source of light in every age, 
the virgin conceived and bore Your Son 
Who is called Wonderful God, 
Prince of Peace. 
May her prayer, 
the gift of a mother's love, 
be Your people's joy through all ages. 
May her response, 
born of a humble heart, 
draw Your Spirit to rest on Your people. 
Grant this through Christ our Lord. 

Amen.

Jesus, my Lord, let me go to Mary 
when suffering threatens to overwhelm me. 
Ask your mother to stay with me 
when I am afraid and tempted to surrender. 
Let me look to Mary as my model for love, 
as well as my haven of healing. 
Make sure I am considerate of other people 
and notice how they are affected by their suffering.

I'm not the only one. 
I beg you, Lord,
to help me grow in compassion. 
If I am faithful to You 
and close to Your blessed mother, 
those who suffer will be comforted by my presence...
and they will gain courage 
as I stand beside them, 
by their cross.

Amen.

Most Holy and adorable Trinity,
one God in three Persons,
I praise you and give you thanks
for all the favors you have bestowed on me.
Your goodness has preserved me until now.

I offer you my whole being
and in particular all my thoughts, words, and deeds,
together with all the trials I may undergo this day.
Give them your blessing.
May your divine love animate them
and may they serve your greater glory.

I make this morning offering in union
with the divine intentions of Jesus Christ
who offers himself daily in the holy sacrifice of the Mass,
and in union with Mary, his Virgin Mother and our Mother,
who was always the faithful handmaid of the Lord.

Amen.

Merciful Jesus, 
during Your life on earth 
You showed great concern for the sick and the infirm. 
Have compassion now on all those 
who are sick or in pain. 
Grant them a healing of mind and body 
and restore their strength and spirit. 
Comfort them with the knowledge 
that we are praying for them, 
and give them peace with a sense of Your presence. 
May they know that in the special way 
they are united with You, 
their suffering Christ. 
May they contribute to the welfare 
of the whole People of God 
by associating themselves freely 
with Your passion and death 
for the salvation of the world. 
Bless, too, those who take care of the sick. 
In their own time of need, 
bestow on them a hundred fold the blessings 
they have given to others.

Amen.

Infinitely merciful Father, 
I offer You by the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary 
with St. Joseph, 
the nine choirs of Angels 
and all the Saints, 
the adorations, praises, love and infinite holiness of Your beloved Son, 
Our Lord Jesus Christ, 
His heart wounded and burning with love, 
all His blood shed for us, 
all His sacred wounds 
and in them my life and sufferings of all people, 
for my salvation and for the salvation of the whole world, 
the deliverance of all souls from Purgatory 
and the praise of Your merciful Father, 
I offer You the wounds of our Lord Jesus Christ 
for those in agony today.

Amen. 
 

March 20, 2017

Remember, Heart of Jesus, 
Immaculate Heart of Mary, 
and you, O glorious St. Joseph, 
that no one has ever had recourse to your protection, 
or implored your assistance without obtaining relief.
 
Animated with the utmost lively confidence, 
I come laden with the weight of my sins, 
to prostrate myself before you. 

O Merciful Heart of Jesus, 
Immaculate Heart of Mary, 
and you, O glorious St. Joseph, 
reject not my prayer and petitions
but graciously hear and grant them.

Amen.

Father of love, source of all blessings, 
help me to pass from my old life of sin 
to the new life of grace. 
Prepare me for the glory of Your Kingdom. 
I ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, 
Who lives and reigns with You 
and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever.

March 18, 2017

Heavenly Father, without You I can do nothing. 
By Your Spirit help me to know what is right
and to be eager in doing Your will. 
Teach me to find new life through penance. 
Keep me from sin, and help me live
by Your commandment of love. 

God of love, bring me back to You. 
Send Your Spirit to make me strong
in faith and active in good works. 
May my acts of penance bring me Your forgiveness, 
open my heart to Your love, 
and prepare me for the coming feast 
of the Resurrection of Jesus.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the Son of Peace to you.

Grant us, we beseech You, O Lord,
the help of Your grace:
that duly applying ourselves to fasting and prayers,
we may be delivered from enemies of mind and of body.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
Who lives and reigns,
with the Holy Spirit,
One God, world without end.

Amen.

March 14, 2017

Lord our God, with the birth of Your Son,
Your glory breaks on the world.
Through the night hours of the darkened earth,
we Your people watch for the coming of Your promised Son.
As we wait, give us a foretaste of the joy
that You will grant us
when the fullness of his glory has filled the earth,
who lives and reigns with You
forever and ever.

Amen.

O Mary, Mother of God As You are above all creatures in Heaven and Earth, more glorious than the Cherubim, more noble than any here below, Christ has given You to His people, to shield and save sinners who fly unto You. Therefore O Lady, all embracing refuge, we solemnly recall Your sweet protection, and beg Christ forever for His mercy. Amen
