Let nothing disturb you,
Nothing frighten you.
All things are passing.
God never changes.
Patient endurance attains all things.
Whoever possesses God lacks nothing,
God alone is sufficient.

My Jesus, I love You with my heart.
I grieve for offended your infinite goodness
so many times.
I strive by Your grace to never more offend You
for the time to come; and now,
miserable and unworthy though I am,
I consecrate myself to You without reserve.
I give You and renounce my entire will,
my affections, my desires, and all that I possess.
From now on, use me
and all that I have as You wish.
All I ask of You and desire is Your holy love
and the perfect accomplishment of Your will.

My Lord Jesus Christ,
who for the love You bear us,
remain night and day in this Sacrament,
full of compassion and of love,
awaiting, calling and welcoming
all who come to visit You.
I believe that You are present
in the Sacrament of the Altar.
I adore You from the abyss of my nothingness
and I thank You for all the graces
You have given me, and in particular,
for having given me Your Most Holy Mother Mary
as my advocate and for having called me
to visit You in this church.

Lord Jesus, our Savior,
You have made Your mother Mary
a faithful follower of God's law
and a chosen member of Your Church.
Through her prayers, may we continue
to grow in Your love.

Lord Jesus, King of all the saints,
we praise You now and forever.


O Mary, you are praying for us,
you are always praying for us.
We know it, we feel it.
Oh what joy and truth,
what sublime glory,
in this heavenly and human interchange
of sentiments, words and actions,
which the rosary always brings us:
the tempering of our human afflictions,
the foretaste of the peace that is not of this world,
the hope of eternal life!

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I love you.
Save souls.
St. Joseph, foster father of Christ,
pray for us.
St. Joseph, head of the Holy Family,
pray for us.
St. Joseph, patron of a happy death,
pray for us.
St. Therese, the Little Flower of the Child Jesus
and of the Holy Face,
pray for us.
St. Jude and St. Rita,
patrons of the seemingly impossible,
pray for us.
All you holy saints of God,
intercede for us.

O God, Who conferred Your saving faith
on the people of France
through Your holy bishop and martyr Denis,
and glorified him before and after his martyrdom
by many miracles.
Grant us, through his intercession,
that the faith practiced and preached by him
may be our light on the way of life,
so that we may be preserved from all anxieties
of conscience, and if by human frailty we have sinned,
we may return to You speedily by true penance.
Through Christ our Lord.


Lord, when illness strikes
my life seems to collapse around me.
The work routine crumbles away,
and everything’s just a heap of ruins.

Yet, Lord, in all the sufferings
I know You are with me.
You are my rock.
You are my support, my sure foundation
who never gives way, who never lets me know.
You are my strength who keeps me going.

Lord, what would I do without Your help?
I thank You.


-- By Columban Fr. Patrick Sayles

O Virgin Mary, grant that by reciting your Rosary
each day, in the midst of my many duties,
I will develop a habit of internal prayer.
Grant O Virgin Mary, that the study of
your fifteen mysteries may form in my soul,
a luminous atmosphere, pure, strengthening and fragrant,
which may penetrate my whole being.
So, I shall begin the habit of praying while I work,
without the aid of formal prayers,
or by aspirations of love.

O my God, in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary
I offer You the Precious Blood of Jesus
from all the altars throughout the world,
joining with it the offering of my every thought,
word and action of this day.

O my Jesus, I desire today to gain every indulgence
and merit I can and I offer them, together with myself,
to Mary Immaculate ... that she may best apply them
to the interests of Your most Sacred Heart.

Precious Blood of Jesus, Save us!

Immaculate Heart of Mary, Save us!

Sacred Heart of Jesus, Have mercy on us!

Most holy and immaculate Virgin,
Mother of Jesus and our loving Mother,
being his Mother, you shared in His universal kingship.
The prophets and angels proclaimed Him King of peace.
With loving fervor in our hearts we salute
and honor you as Queen of peace.

We pray that your intercession
may protect us and all people from hate and discord,
and direct our hearts into the ways of peace and justice
which your Son taught and exemplified.
We ask your maternal care for our Holy Father
who works to reconcile the nations in peace.
We seek your guidance for our Head of State
and other Leaders as they strive for world peace.

Praised be my Lord and God,
with all His creatures, and especially
our brother the sun, who brings us the day
and brings us the light; fair is he,
and he shines with great splendor.
O Lord, he is a sign to us of you!

Praised be my Lord for our sister the moon,
and for the stars, set clear and lovely
in the heaven.

Dear Jesus,
We hope for many things - success, adequate resources,
health for ourselves and for those dear to us,
and other genuinely good desires.
Yet in the long run, what we really need
is to grow in friendship with You.
May this day provide the opportunity to take
some time out to be with You
and share our thanks and hopes.


— By a Columban Missionary

O Holy Angel, attendant of my wretched soul
and of my afflicted life, do not forsake me, a sinner,
or depart from me for my inconstancy.
Give no place to the evil demon to subdue me
with the oppression of this mortal body;
but take me by my outstretched hand,
and lead me in the way of salvation.
O Holy Angel of God, the guardian and protector
of my hapless soul and body, forgive me all things
that have troubled you, all the days of my life,
and if I have sinned in anything this day.
Shelter me in this present night,
and keep me from every affront of the enemy,
lest I anger God by any sin;
and intercede with the Lord on my behalf,
that He might strengthen me in the fear of Him,
and make me a worthy servant of His goodness.


I greet you, Saint Therese of the Child Jesus,
lily of purity, ornament and glory of Christianity!
I salute you, great saint, Seraph of Divine Love.

I rejoice at the favors our Blessed Lord Jesus
has liberally bestowed on you.

In humility and confidence I ask you to help me,
for I know that God has given you charity and pity
as well as power.

Oh then, behold my distress, my anxiety, my fears.
Oh, tell Him now my wants.
One sigh from you will crown my success
and fill me with joy.

Remember your promise to do good on earth.
Obtain for me from God the graces
of our Divine Lord.
