O Lord Jesus Christ,
in presenting ourselves before Your adorable Face
to ask of You the graces of which we stand most in need,
we beseech You above all,

O compassionate Mother, not to forget us.
Grant, O Lady, that we,
your devout children,
may be favored more beyond comparison
than are all other men on earth,

Grant, O Lord, to Your Church,
assurance of freedom and immunity from harm;

God of Mercy and Compassion -

When I hesitate to act because of fear, be my strength.
When I question my existence, assure me.

Be the King, O Lord,
not only of the faithful who have never forsaken You,

Oh Dear Jesus,
we are so far away from Your most pure and Sacred Heart.
As a family we need Your help.
Heal all the quarrels that exist
in our family due to our unforgiveness

and lead us to Your Sacred Heart with love.
Unite us as a family

Peter singing with some of his HEC classmates as backup

I am Peter, and I am a third year student at Columban Fr. Neil Magill's Higher Education Center [HEC] in Mandalay, Myanmar (formerly Burma).

It can take two days to reach homes in remote villages. Fr.

O Immaculate Mother,
lead us to Heaven,
inflame us with the Divine Love,
let shine upon us that same light of glory

Most sweet Jesus,
Redeemer of the human race,

We are Yours and Yours we wish to be;
but to be more surely united with You,
behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today
to Your Most Sacred Heart.
