Weekly Prayer - Open My Heart

June 8, 2017

My soul,
open my heart;
so Jesus can give me every good gift;
He loves me ardently.
Hope, then, 
for great favors from my Lord,
Who, through an impulse of love, 
comes to me all love. 
Yes, my Jesus, my hope, 
I trust in Your goodness, 
that in giving Yourself to me this morning, 
You will kindle in my poor soul 
the flames of Your love, 
and of an ardent desire to please You, 

Weekly Prayer - Bring Them Together

June 1, 2017

Merciful Lord, who prayed that there be one flock and one shepherd, 
I ask the light of faith 
for those who do not know You in Your Eucharistic Presence. 
Give them the joy of Your protecting presence. 
Bring them into the one fold 
of which You are the master and Lord. 
Forgive them their sins and teach them the way of repentance. 
In the end bring them into the larger circle of Your family, 
to God our Father, 

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.
