O my God!
I offer You all my actions of this day 
for the intentions and for the glory 
of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. 
I desire to sanctify every beat of my heart, 
my every thought, 
my simplest works, 
by uniting them to His infinite merits; 
and I wish to make reparation for my sins 
by casting them into the furnace of His merciful love. 
O my God, 
I ask of You for myself and for those dear to me 
the grace to fulfill perfectly Your holy will, 
to accept, for love of You, 
the joys and sorrows of this passing life, 
so that we may one day be united together 
in Heaven for all eternity. 

Amen.

I love you, most lovable Lady, 
By the love which I bear you, 
I promise never to offend you, 
and to do as much as I can, 
that you be loved by others also. 
I put all my hopes in you, 
all my salvation. 
Receive me as your servant 
and cover me with the mantle of your protection, 
you are the Mother of mercy!

Amen.

May 25, 2017

Have mercy on me, O God, in Your goodness.
In Your compassion, blot out my offense.
O wash me more and more from my sin
And from my sin, cleanse me.

For my offenses, truly I know them.
My sin is always before me.
Against You, You alone have I sinned,
What is evil in your sight, I have done.

That You may be justified in Your sentence
Vindicated when You condemn,
Indeed, in guilt was I born,
In sin, my mother conceived me.
Behold, You are pleased with sincerity of heart
and in my inmost being You teach me wisdom.

May 24, 2017

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, 
truly present in the Holy Eucharist, 
I consecrate my body and soul 
to be entirely one with Your Heart, 
being sacrificed at every instant, 
on the altars of the world, 
giving praise to the Father 
and pleading for the coming of His kingdom. 
Please receive this humble offering of myself. 
Use me as You will for the glory of the Father 
and the salvation of souls. 
Most Holy Mother of God, 
never let me be separated from your Divine Son. 
Please defend and protect me as Your special child.

Amen.

Lord, our God,
help us to walk with you
on the pathway of the beatitudes
and to live out your mission
in today's world.

Bind us to all men and women
of our time so that together
we may bring the Good News
to the ends of the earth.

Open our hearts 
and our Christian communities
to the needy, 
the afflicted,
the oppressed.
May we radiate the Living Christ
and transform our lives
in the hope of the Resurrection.

This prayer we make to you
who are living God now and forever.

Amen.

May 22, 2017

Most merciful Father, 
we commend our departed into Your hands. 
We are filled with the sure hope 
that our departed will rise again on the Last Day 
with all who have died in Christ. 
We thank You for all the good things
You have given during our departed's earthly life.

O Father, in Your great mercy, 
accept our prayer that the Gates of Paradise 
may be opened for Your servant. 
In our turn, may we, too, 
be comforted by the words of faith 
until we greet Christ in the glory 
and are united with You and our departed.

O Holy Virgin,
in the midst of all your glory,
we ask you not to forget 
the sorrows of this world.
Cast a look of pity upon all 
who struggle against life's difficulties,
and who cease not to feel all its bitterness.
Have pity on all who have been 
separated from those they love.
Have pity on the lonely and friendless.
Pardon the weakness of our faith.
have pity on those whom we love.
O Holy Mother,
show a mother's compassion toward the sorrowful
and those who tremble under life's afflictions.
Give them hope and peace.

Amen.

May 20, 2017

Loving God,
as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children, 
so you watch over your Church. 
Bless our families,
that they may be strengthened as Christian households. 
Let the example of their faith and love shine forth. 
Grant that we, Your sons and daughters, 
may honor You always
with a spirit of profound respect. 
Grant this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

May 19, 2017

I adore You, O my God, 
and I love You with all my heart. 
I give thanks that You have created me, 
made me a Christian, 
and preserved me this night. 
I offer You the actions of this day; 
grant that all of them may be according to Your holy Will, 
and for Your greater glory. 
Save me from sin and from all evil. 
Let Your grace be always with me.

Amen.

Immaculate Mary, our Mother,
relying on your maternal intercession, 
we resolve from this moment to devote our talents, 
learning, material resources, 
our health, sickness and trials, 
and every gift of nature and grace, 
for the greater glory of God 
and the salvation of all. 
We wish to carry on those activities 
which especially promote the catholic apostolate 
for the revival of fatih 
and love of the people of God 
and so bring all men and women 
into the faith of Jesus Christ. 
And if a time should come 
when we have nothing more to offer serviceable to this end, 
we will never cease to pray 
that there will be one fold 
and one shepherd Jesus Christ. 
In this way, we hope to enjoy the results 
of the apostolate of Jesus Christ 
for all eternity. 

Amen.

May 17, 2017

O almighty God, 
Lord of the harvest of souls, 
we ask You to guide and bless all 
who have gone forth to preach the gospel. 
Endow them with the gifts of generosity and concern. 
Send your Holy Spirit on them, 
that He may strengthen them in weakness, 
comfort them in trials and direct their efforts. 
May He open the hearts of their hearers 
to receive Your message. 
Let Your revelation enlighten all minds 
for the salvation of souls, 
and let Your love heal every heart and body 
for the happiness of each person. 
May all people consciously acknowledge You 
and serve You by living the teachings of Your Son. 
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

May 16, 2017

O Holy Mother.
We kneel before you 
to manifest the sorrow we feel 
for the grievances that people cause you, 
and to atone by our prayers and sacrifices 
for the offenses with which they return your love. 
Obtain for them and for us the pardon of so many sins. 
Hasten the conversion of sinners 
that they may love Jesus 
and cease to offend the Lord, 
already so much offended. 
Turn your eyes of mercy toward us, 
that we may love God with all our heart on earth 
and enjoy Him forever in heaven.

Amen.

May 15, 2017

Behold in pity, O Lord, 
the sorrows of Your people, 
which I bring before You; 
the perils of Your servants; 
the sorrowful sighing of prisoners; 
the miseries of widows and orphans, 
and all that are desolate and bereaved; 
the necessities of strangers and travelers; 
the helplessness and sadness of the weak and sickly; 
the depressions of the languishing; 
the weakness of the aged and of children; 
the trials and aspirations of young men; 
and the vows of young women.

Amen.

May 14, 2017

God our creator, 
we come before You 
and lift up in prayer all mothers, 
grandmothers, stepmothers and mothers to be 
who gave the gift of life.
We give you thanks for their presence, 
talents and gifts which they share in our church, 
society and world. 
May all mothers know of Your loving 
and gentle presence 
and may they always turn towards You 
in times of joy, sorrow and glory.
We ask this in Your Name. 

Amen.

Immaculate Mother of God, 
Queen of the Apostles, 
we know that God's commandment of love 
and our vocation to follow Jesus Christ 
impels us to cooperate in the mission of the Church. 
Realizing our own weakness, 
we entrust the renewal of our personal lives 
and our apostolate to your intercession. 
We are confident that through God's mercy 
and the infinite merits of Jesus Christ, 
you, who are our Mother, 
will obtain the strength of the Holy Spirit 
as you obtained it for the community of the apostles 
gathered in the upper room.
