Weekly Prayer - Greater Glory of God

May 18, 2017

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 

Weekly Prayer - Bestow Your Graces

May 11, 2017

O Mary, our Mother,
be mindful of us as you stand near Him who granted you all graces, 
for you are the Mother of God and our Queen. 
Help us for the sake of the King, 
the Lord God and Master who was born of you. 
For this reason, 
you are called full of grace. 
Remember us, most holy Virgin, 
and bestow on us gifts 
from the riches of your graces, 
Virgin full of graces. 

Weekly Prayer - Graces for the Modern World

May 4, 2017

Mary, Mother of God, at your request, 
Jesus worked His first miracle. 
He changed water into wine for the wedding guests at Cana in Galilee. 

Over the centuries you have not ceased 
to obtain countless signs and wonders for the poor, 
exiled children of Eve. 

We therefore ask you to intercede with your Divine Son 
for the miraculous graces which the modern world so desperately needs.

Weekly Prayer - Keep Us from Pettiness

April 20, 2017

Keep us, O God, from all pettiness.
Let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
let us be done with fault-finding
and leave off all self-seeking.
May we put away all pretense
and meet each other face to face,
without self pity and without prejudice.
may we never be hasty in judgment,
and always be generous.
let us always take time for all things,
and make us to grow calm, serene and gentle.

Weekly Prayer - Your Beloved Son

April 13, 2017

Eternal Father, 
turn away Your angry gaze from our guilty people 
whose face has become unsightly in Your eyes. 
Look instead upon the Face of Your Beloved Son, 
for this is the Face of Him 
in Whom You are well pleased. 
We now offer You this Holy Face, 
covered with shame and disfigured by bloody bruises 
in reparation for the crimes of our age 
in order to appease Your anger, 
justly provoked against us. 

Weekly Prayer - Your Goodness Preserved Me

March 30, 2017

Most Holy and adorable Trinity,
one God in three Persons,
I praise you and give you thanks
for all the favors you have bestowed on me.
Your goodness has preserved me until now.

I offer you my whole being
and in particular all my thoughts, words, and deeds,
together with all the trials I may undergo this day.
Give them your blessing.
May your divine love animate them
and may they serve your greater glory.

Weekly Prayer - Have Mercy

March 23, 2017

Save us, Christ our Savior,
by the virtue of Your holy Cross:
You who saved Peter in the sea,
have mercy upon us.

Mary, Mother of mercy,
pray for us,
and we shall be delivered;
Mary, our advocate,
speak for us,
and we shall be saved.

The Lord justly scourged us for our sins;
but, Mary, plead for us,
for you are our most tender Mother.
Oh! let us never be confounded.
 

Weekly Prayer - Save Us from Sin

March 16, 2017

All praise and glory are Yours, almighty Father:
You have given us Your Son Jesus to save us from sin.
We praise You for choosing Mary to be His mother,
for teaching her to believe Your message,
for helping her to accept Your holy will.

Strengthen us by Your Spirit to be like Mary:
to ponder Your word in our hearts,
to obey Your will,
to love Your Son,
to sing Your praises every day.
