My Divine Lord,
I firmly believe that I am going to receive
in Holy Communion Your Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity.
I believe this because You have said it,
and I am ready to maintain this truth at the peril of my life.

O holy Martyr, St. Valentine, pray for the faithful,
who are so persevering in celebrating your memory.
The day of Judgment will reveal to us
all your glorious merits.
Intercede for us, that we may then be made your companions
at the right hand of the Great Judge,
and be united with you eternally in heaven.

I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.
In choosing to do wrong
and failing to do good,
I have sinned against you
whom I should love above all things.
I firmly intend, with your help,
to do penance, to sin no more,
and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.
Our Savior Jesus Christ
suffered and died for us.
In his name, my God, have mercy.

Dear Sacred Heart of Jesus,
I love You so much
and I give You my heart.
Help me to love God.
Help me to love my neighbor
as a child of God.
Help me to love myself
as a child of God.

O Immaculate Virgin Mary,
Mother of Mercy,
you are the refuge of sinners,
the health of the sick,
and the comfort of the afflicted.
You know my wants,
my troubles, my sufferings.
By your appearance at the Grotto of Lourdes
you made it a privileged sanctuary
where your favors are given to people
streaming to it from the whole world.
Over the years countless sufferers
have obtained the cure for their infirmities -
whether of soul, mind, or body.
Therefore I come to you
with limitless confidence
to implore your motherly intercession.
Obtain, O loving Mother,
the grant of my requests.
Through gratitude for Your favors,
I will endeavor to imitate Your virtues,
that I may one day share in Your glory.

Jesus, my God, I adore You,
here present in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar,
where You wait day and night to be our comfort
while we await Your unveiled presence in heaven.
Jesus, my God,
I adore You in all places
where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved
and where sins are committed
against this Sacrament of Love.
Jesus, my God,
I adore You for all time,
past, present and future,
for every soul that ever was,
is or shall be created.

O Heavenly Father,
I commend my children to You
Be their God and Father;
and mercifully supply whatever is wanting in me
through frailty or negligence.
Strengthen them to overcome the corruptions of the world,
to resist all solicitations to evil,
whether from within or without;
and deliver them from the secret snares of the enemy.
Pour Your grace into their hearts,
and confirm and multiply in them the gifts of Your Holy Spirit,
that they may daily grow in grace
and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ;
and so, faithfully serving You here,
may come to rejoice in Your presence hereafter.

Loving God, rewarder of the humble,
You blessed St. Josephine Bakhita
with charity and patience.
May her prayers help us,
and her example inspire us to carry our cross
and to love You always.
Pour upon us the spirit of wisdom and love
with which You filled St. Josephine.
By serving You as she did,
may we please You by our faith and our actions.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Your Son, who lives and reigns with You
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

O Holy Mother, all the treasures of the mercy of God
are in your hands.
You will never cease to benefit us, I know,
for you are only seeking an opportunity
to save all sinners
and to shower your mercies upon them.
Your glory is increased when,
penitents are forgiven and reach heaven.
Look favorably upon us, Heavenly Mother,
and help us in our hour of need.

God of heaven and earth, Creator of all,
Be always by the side of Your Ambassador Pope Francis.
Guide him in his words and actions,
Sustain him as an instrument of Your peace and compassion,
Give him the wisdom and strength to do Your Will,
Protect him from all evil,
Help him to shepherd the flock of the Church, to bring it to salvation,
And manifest in him Your boundless mercy, Your forgiveness and kindness.
May he always be filled with Your unfathomable love,
And may he be a vessel for that love to fill the world.

O God, Who among the other marvels of Your power,
has granted the victory of martyrdom;
that we who celebrate the Heavenly birthday
of blessed Agatha, Your Virgin and Martyr,
may, by her example,
draw nearer to You.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Your Son who lives and reigns world without end.

O Heavenly Father, I pray
that You enlighten my mind,
inflame my will,
purify my heart,
and sanctify my soul.

Queen of the Most Holy Rosary,
in this tragic hour of the world's history,
we entrust and consecrate ourselves to your Immaculate Heart,
our only refuge, our hope, our salvation.
Have pity on this world,
torn by the most terrible conflicts,
burning with the fires of hate, victim of its own sins.
May your Heart be moved at the sight of so much ruin,
pain and sorrow.
We consecrate to your maternal heart our persons,
the whole of humanity.
Protect and save us!

O Mary, for you, nothing is impossible.
You can raise even those who are in despair
to a hope of salvation.
There more powerful you are,
the greater should be your mercy.
Turn also to us in your love.
I know, O Mary, that you are all kindness
and that you love us with a love
that no other love can surpass.
How often you appease the wrath of our Divine Judge,
when He is on the point of punishing us!
February 1, 2019
O God, who has given Your blessed Apostle Peter
the keys to the kingdom of heaven,
and the power to bind and loose:
grant that we may be delivered,
through the help of this intercession,
from the slavery of all our sins:
Who lives and reigns world without end.
