you became Christlike
and knew only Christ Crucified.
Though extremely learned,
you relied completely on the Wisdom received
from the Spirit
and taught from the abundance of your heart.
Instruct modern priests and evangelists
those who preach Christ to others.

Sacred Heart of Jesus
today I wish to live in You,
in Your grace,
in which I desire at all costs to persevere.
Keep me from sin
and strengthen my will by helping me to keep watch over my senses,

I beg You to do this,
O Jesus, through Mary,

Stay with us, O Lord,
to guard the innocent,
to sustain the tempted,
to raise the fallen,
to curb the power of the evil one,
to prevent sin.
O Good Shepherd,
stay with Your sheep,
Secure them against the perils that beset them.
Stay, above all,
with the suffering and dying.
Grant us a quiet night and a perfect end.

O Good Shepherd,
stay with Your sheep,
Secure them against the perils that beset them.
Stay, above all,
with the suffering and dying.
Grant us a quiet night and a perfect end.

that without fear we may appear before You as our Judge.

Blood of Christ, inebriate me!
Inebriate me with Your Love,
that I may be absorbed in Your interests and Your Will.
Absorbed so as to be unmindful of my ills and petty cares.
Unmindful of weariness and pain,
heartache, and disappointment.
Heedless of the lash of cruel words,
and patient under wrongs.

Amen.

Give me the grace to long for Your holy Sacraments,
and especially to rejoice in the presence of Your body,
sweet Saviour Christ,
in the Holy Sacrament of the altar.

Amen.

O Holy Mary, my mother,
into your blessed trust and custody,
and into the care of your mercy
I this day, every day,
and in the hour of my death,
commend my soul and my body.
To you I commit all my anxieties and miseries,
my life and the end of my life,
that by your most holy intercession
and by your merits
all my actions may be directed
