I believe that You, O Jesus,
are in the most holy Sacrament.
I love You and desire You.
Come into my heart I embrace You.
Oh, never leave me.
May the burning and most sweet power
of Your love, O Lord Jesus Christ,

I beseech You, absorb my mind
that I may die through love of Your love,

who were graciously pleased to die
through love of my love.

Come Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of Your faithful
and kindle in them the fire of Your love.
Send forth Your Spirit
and they shall be created.
And You shall renew the face of the earth.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit,
did instruct the hearts of the faithful,
grant that by the same Holy Spirit
we may be truly wise and ever enjoy
His consolations, through Christ Our Lord.

Amen.

Thank You, Lord, for Your great power
and love for all people.
Help us, to constantly praise You
and glorify Your Holy Name.
Even during times of trial, like this COVID-19 pandemic,
help us to see that we are all one world community;
that our actions affect those around us.
Remind us that the health and safety of our families
rests in everyone working together
with love and compassion for each other.
May You be our guide, O Lord,
and may we always praise and glorify You.

Amen.

Guardian Angel, watch over those
whose names you can read in my heart.
Guard over them with every care
and make their way easy and their labors fruitful.
Dry their tears if they weep;
sanctify their joys;
raise their courage if they weaken;
restore their hope if they lose heart,
their health if they be ill,
truth if they err,
repentance if they fail.

O Saintly reformer, animator of spiritual
renewal of priests and religious,
you organized true seminaries
and wrote a standard catechism.
Inspire all religious teachers
and authors of catechetical books.
Move them to love and transmit only
that which can form true followers
of the Teacher who was divine.

Amen.

Most glorious Martin de Porres,
whose burning charity embraced
not only the needy brethren,
but also the very animals of the field,
splendid example of charity,
we hail you and invoke you!
From that high throne which you occupied,
listen to the humble requests of your needy brethren
that, by imitating your virtues, we may live contented
in that state in which God has placed us
and carrying with strength and courage our cross,
we may follow in the footsteps of Our Blessed Redeemer
and His most afflicted Mother,
that at last we may reach the Kingdom of Heaven
through the merits of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen.

O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all the faithful,
grant to the souls of our departed brothers and sisters,
the forgiveness of all their sins.
We humbly ask that they may obtain
the pardon they have always desired.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.

Amen.

Dear God, thank You for the example of the Saints.
I desire to join in their company,
worshiping You forever in Heaven.
Please help me follow their footsteps,
and yours, Jesus Christ.
Please help me to conform myself to Your image,
seeking Your will in all things, as the Saints did.
Please help me to devote myself, and all that I do,
to Your glory, and to the service of my neighbors.

Amen.

O Maria, transform my heart into yours.
Place around it a wreath of purity,
adorned in virtue.

Take my heart, dear Mother,
consecrated as your own.
Present it to God the Father
as an offering from me to you.

Help me O Maria in each day
to make your heart more known.

Amen.

O God, in the faithful service of our brother Alphonsus
You have shown us the way to joy and peace.
Make us ready and watchful companions of Jesus,
who became the servant of all, and now lives
and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

O Jesus, I adore You, in union with all Your people
over the Earth, with the holy souls in Purgatory
and with Your angels and saints in Heaven.

I gladly acknowledge that I come from You,
that in You I live, move and have my being
and that I depend on You in all things.
May I live always in this spirit of humble
recognition of your infinite majesty and goodness.

O Holy St. Jude, Apostle and Martyr,
great in virtue and in miracles,
faithful intercessor of all who invoke
Your special help in time of need.
To You I have recourse from the depth of my heart
and humbly request assistance.
Help me in my present and urgent petition.
In return I promise to make Your name known
and cause You to be invoked.

My Jesus, I believe you are present in the consecrated host.
Give me the faith of St. Peter to proclaim, “
You are Christ, the son of the Living God.”
Give me the faith of St. Thomas to cry out,
“My Lord and my God.” Dear Lord, increase my faith.

Sometimes, Lord, I think You are demanding
too much from me.
I wonder if I can really undergo this trial
whether it is about failing health, or family, or whatever.
But deep down I know You never ask more than I can bear.
I believe that as Your follower You will show me the path
to life and fullness of joy in your presence.

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
I adore, praise and thank You for the benefits
which You have given me.
I as You, for all that Your servant
Friar Antonio de Sant’Anna Galvao suffered
and accomplished, that You increase my faith,
hope and charity and grant me
the grace that I ardently desire.

Amen.
