Most merciful Father,
we commend our departed into Your hands.
We are filled with the sure hope
that our departed will rise again on the Last Day
with all who have died in Christ.
We thank You for all the good things
You have given during our departed's earthly life.
Most merciful Father,
O Holy Virgin,
in the midst of all your glory,
we ask you not to forget
the sorrows of this world.
Cast a look of pity upon all
who struggle against life's difficulties,
and who cease not to feel all its bitterness.
Have pity on all who have been
separated from those they love.
Have pity on the lonely and friendless.
Pardon the weakness of our faith.
have pity on those whom we love.
O Holy Mother,
as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children,
so you watch over your Church.
Bless our families,
that they may be strengthened as Christian households.
Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.
Grant that we, Your sons and daughters,
may honor You always
with a spirit of profound respect.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.
I adore You, O my God,
and I love You with all my heart.
I give thanks that You have created me,
made me a Christian,
and preserved me this night.
I offer You the actions of this day;
grant that all of them may be according to Your holy Will,
and for Your greater glory.
Save me from sin and from all evil.
Let Your grace be always with me.
Immaculate Mary, our Mother,
relying on your maternal intercession,
we resolve from this moment to devote our talents,
learning, material resources,
our health, sickness and trials,
and every gift of nature and grace,
for the greater glory of God
and the salvation of all.
We wish to carry on those activities
which especially promote the catholic apostolate
for the revival of fatih
and love of the people of God
O almighty God,
Lord of the harvest of souls,
we ask You to guide and bless all
who have gone forth to preach the gospel.
Endow them with the gifts of generosity and concern.
Send your Holy Spirit on them,
that He may strengthen them in weakness,
comfort them in trials and direct their efforts.
May He open the hearts of their hearers
to receive Your message.
Let Your revelation enlighten all minds
O Holy Mother.
We kneel before you
to manifest the sorrow we feel
for the grievances that people cause you,
and to atone by our prayers and sacrifices
for the offenses with which they return your love.
Obtain for them and for us the pardon of so many sins.
Hasten the conversion of sinners
that they may love Jesus
and cease to offend the Lord,
already so much offended.
Turn your eyes of mercy toward us,
Behold in pity, O Lord,
the sorrows of Your people,
which I bring before You;
the perils of Your servants;
the sorrowful sighing of prisoners;
the miseries of widows and orphans,
and all that are desolate and bereaved;
the necessities of strangers and travelers;
the helplessness and sadness of the weak and sickly;
the depressions of the languishing;
the weakness of the aged and of children;
God our creator,
we come before You
and lift up in prayer all mothers,
grandmothers, stepmothers and mothers to be
who gave the gift of life.
We give you thanks for their presence,
talents and gifts which they share in our church,
society and world.
May all mothers know of Your loving
and gentle presence
and may they always turn towards You
in times of joy, sorrow and glory.
We ask this in Your Name.
Immaculate Mother of God,
Queen of the Apostles,
we know that God's commandment of love
and our vocation to follow Jesus Christ
impels us to cooperate in the mission of the Church.
Realizing our own weakness,
we entrust the renewal of our personal lives
and our apostolate to your intercession.
We are confident that through God's mercy
and the infinite merits of Jesus Christ,
you, who are our Mother,
