Dear Loving and Compassionate God, Giver of all gifts,
we pray especially today for the mercy and love You give us.
Open our hearts and minds to You.
Give us the grace to accept your mercy.
As we live each day,
we pray for those less fortunate,
especially those who are hurting,
and whose wounds need to be healed.
Help us become involved in ways that show them how deeply we care.
Give us the personal courage to listen to their concerns
and help them find the solutions to which they are entitled.
as Your children and our brothers and sisters.

Amen.

Almighty God who is the Light of the world,
grant us Your heavenly blessing.
May the radiance of Your Light

Let the Light of Your presence guide us,
for in Your Light do we see light.
Bless us also with Your Spirit,
that happiness and peace may abide in all men.

Amen.

Help me to correct my faults
And raise my mind to You,
And thus grow in holiness
That I may deserve
The reward of everlasting life.

Remember, O most pure spouse
of the Virgin Mary,
my beloved Patron,
that never it has been heard
that anyone invoked your patronage
and sought your aid
without being comforted.
Inspired by this confidence I come to you
and fervently commend myself to you.
Despise not my petition,
O dearest foster father of our Redeemer,
but accept it graciously.

Amen.

Father, all-powerful and ever-living God,
During the Holy Season of Lent
You call us to a closer union with Yourself.
Help me to prepare to celebrate
The Paschal Mystery
With mind and heart renewed.
Give me a spirit of loving reverence
For You, our Father,
And of willing service to my neighbor.
As I recall the great events
That gave us new life in Christ,
Bring the image of Your Son
To perfection within my soul.

God our Father,
You sent Saint Patrick
to preach Your glory to the people of Ireland.

Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

Father and maker of all,
You adorn all creation
with splendor and beauty,
and fashion human lives
in Your image and likeness.
Awaken in every heart
reverence for the work of Your hands,
and renew among Your people

Your precious gift of life.

Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.

Amen.

Lord, bless our home with Your presence.

And may Your blessing remain always upon us.
This we ask of You through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son.

Through the observance of Lent, O Lord,
You purify Your Church every year.

This we ask of You through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son.

March 13, 2020

Heavenly Father,
You have called us all to holiness
which means sharing in Your divine life.
Fill us with a sense of our true dignity
as those called to be Your daughters
and sons in the world
and your ambassadors of justice,
love and peace.
Give us the desire to be worthy
of this great calling
and the courage to live up to it.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.

Amen.

Holy Mary, Virgin Mother of God,
who was conceived without sin,
I choose you, this day
to protect our home.
I ask you through your Immaculate Conception,
to preserve it from pestilence, fire and water;
from lightning and tempests,
from robbers, from schisms and heresies,
from earthquakes and from sudden death.
Bless and protect, O holy Virgin,
all its inhabitants,
obtain for them grace to avoid sin,
and save them from every other misfortune and accident.

Amen.

All loving and merciful Father,
by Your abiding presence and abundant grace
You know our every need.
Bless all women who have adopted a child.
They have so valued Your gift of life

and opened their hearts and their lives.
Help them to know Your loving Providence,
and guide them in their journey of motherhood.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

In Saint Frances of Rome
You have given us a model of holiness,
in married life and of monastic conversion.
By Your hand-maid’s aid,
may we know, love and serve You

so that in all circumstances,
we may fix our gaze upon You alone,
follow Your Only-begotten Son,
and faithfully carry our cross with gratitude.
