O Lord Jesus, like Saint Paul,
may I count everything as loss
in comparison with the supreme advantage of knowing you.
I want to know you and what your passion and resurrection can do.
I also want to share in your sufferings
in the hope that if I resemble you in death
I may somehow attain to the resurrection from the dead.

Father of Heaven and earth,
hear my prayer and show me the way to peace.
Guide each effort of my life
so that my faults and my sins
may not keep me from the peace You promised.
May the new life of grace You give me
through the Eucharist and prayer
make my love for You grow
and keep me in the joy of Your Kingdom.

Almighty and everlasting God,
You have given to Your servants grace
for professing the true faith
and acknowledging the glory of the eternal Trinity
and in the power of Your majesty to worship the Unity;
grant that by steadfastness in the same faith
we may forever be defended from all adversities.
Through Christ our Lord.

May the Lord Jesus place His hands on our eyes
that we may begin to catch sight
of the thing that are not seen
more than the things that are seen.

May He open our eyes
that they will alight on the things to come
more than on the things of this age.

May He unveil the vision of our heart
that it may contemplate God in spirit.

I used to really find it difficult to understand that my father and my mother loved me for who I am. I struggled growing up because I always feel I have to prove myself that I am the best son they could ever have. And the irony is that I am the only son. I felt I had to put up my best in everything I do or say. I should do this, and I should do that.

O Lord, You have gifted the Church
through the goodness of your Grace
to be your hands and do your work,
to be your voice and share your words,
to bring healing to a fallen world
and broken lives make whole.
You have gifted your people
with the blessings of your Spirit,
the power to transform lives
and make all things new.

O Christ Jesus,
when all is darkness 
and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
give us the sense of Your presence,
Your love, and Your strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
in Your protecting love 
and strengthening power,
so that nothing may frighten or worry us,
for, living close to You,
we shall see Your hand,

O Most Holy Virgin,
I venerate you with my whole heart,
above all the Angels
and Saints in Heaven.
I consecrate to you my soul with all its faculties.
I consecrate to you my body with all its senses.
I consecrate to you my heart with all its affections,
begging you to obtain for me of the Most Sacred Trinity
every help for my salvation.

Heavenly Father,
We give you thanks for the privilege of sharing
the joy of the Gospel in many cultures.

Keep us faithful in responding to your call to communion
with your creation, with the poor
and with those who are spiritually alienated.
