O most blessed Virgin Mary, 
mother most loving and most merciful, 
I, a miserable and unworthy sinner come before you,

Mindful then, O Lord, 
of Your worshipful Passion,

that Sacrifice which You have instituted
to be offered in remembrance of You for our well-being. 
Receive it, I ask You, 
O God most High, 
for Your holy Church,

For You have mercy upon all, O Lord, 
and hate nothing that You have made. 
Remember how frail our nature is, 
and that You are our Father and our God. 
Do not be angry with us forever, 
and do not shut Your tender mercies in displeasure. 
For it is not for our just works 
that we present our prayers before Your face,

Remember, O Good Saint Anne,
whose name means grace and mercy,
that never was it know
that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help,
and sought your intercession,
was left unaided.

Merciful God, 
we thank you for food and drink 
transformed into energy and life 
and for sorrow changed into joy.
Through your Holy Spirit 
shine into our hearts 
so that what is hopeless within us 
may be startled with promise 
and what is dead within us 
may be resurrected through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

O God, 
the Shepherd and Ruler of all the faithful, 
in Your mercy look down upon Your servant, Pope Francis,
whom You have hast appointed to preside over Your Church, 
and grant we beseech You 
that both by word and example 
he may edify those who are under his charge; 
so that, with the flock entrusted to him,

May Christ Who was crucified for your sake
free you from excruciating pain.
May Christ Who died for you
free you from the death that never ends.
May Christ the Son of the living God,
set you in the ever green loveliness of His Paradise,
and may He, the true Shepherd
recognize you as one of His own.
May you see your Redeemer face to face

O God, enlarge within us the sense of
fellowship with all living things,
our brothers the animals to whom You
gave the earth as their home in
common with us.

O Blessed Joseph, happy man, 
to whom it was given 
not only to see and to hear that God 
Whom many kings longed to see, 
and saw not, to hear, and heard not; 
but also to carry Him in your arms, 
to embrace Him, 
to clothe Him, 
and guard and defend Him. 
Pray for us, O Blessed Joseph.
That we may be made worthy
