O Mary, under your patronage
we find peace in the midst of earthly tribulation.
You are the quiet certainty of the strong soul,
ever on guard against the enemy.
You are the sanctuary of the pure
who remain unstained by earth’s corruption.
And just as, with you,
we find peace during the present life,
so shall we find with you,
when the days of our pilgrimage are over,
everlasting peace in the world to come.

Amen.

O Lord, behold here before You
a soul who exists in this world
in order to allow You
to exercise Your admirable mercy
and manifest it before heaven and earth.
Others may glorify You
through their faithfulness and perseverance,
thus making evident the power of Your grace.
How sweet and generous You are
to those who are faithful to You!

Behold, O most loving Jesus,
the wonderful extent of Your charity.
You have prepared for me,
from Your Sacred Flesh and most precious Blood,
a divine banquet,
where You gave Yourself without reserve.
O adorable Heart of my Jesus,
most ardent furnace of divine love,
receive my soul into Your most sacred Wound,
in order that,
in this school of charity,
I may learn to make a return of love to that God,
Who has given me such admirable proofs of His love.

God Our Heavenly Father
You created the world to serve humanity's needs
and to lead them to You.
By our own fault
we have lost the beautiful relationship
which we once had with all Your creation.
Help us to see that by restoring our relationship with You
we will also restore it with all Your creation.
Give us the grace to see all animals as gifts from You
and to treat them with respect
for they are Your creation.
May the order You originally established
be once again restored to the whole world

Loving Father,
faith in Your Word is the way to wisdom.
Help me to think about Your Divine Plan
that I may grow in the truth.
Open my eyes to Your deeds,
my ears to the sound of Your call,
so that my every act may help me share
in the life of Jesus.
Give me the grace to live the example of the love of Jesus,
which I celebrate in the Eucharist
and see in the Gospel.
Form in me the likeness of Your Son
and deepen His Life within me.
