All-powerful and ever-living God,
when Abraham left his native land
and departed from his people
You kept him safe through all his journeys.
Protect these soldiers.

Be their constant companion and their strength in battle,
their refuge in every adversity.
Guide them, O Lord, that they may return home in safety.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

St. Gerard, who, like the Savior, 
loved children so tenderly 
and by your prayers freed many from disease and even death, 
listen to us who are pleading for our sick child. 
We thank God for the great gift of our son/daughter
and ask Him to restore our child to health
if such be His holy will.
This favour, we beg of you
through your love for all children and mothers.

Amen.

Sing, my tongue, the Savior’s glory,
Of His flesh the mystery sing;
Of the blood all price exceeding,
Shed by our immortal King.
Destined for the world's redemption.
From a noble womb to spring.
Of a pure and spotless virgin,
Born for us on earth below,
He, as man with man conversing,
Stay'd, the seeds of truth to sow;
Then He closed in solemn order
Wondrously His life of woe.

Father of Mercy,
forgive my failings,
keep me in Your Grace,
and lead me in the way of salvation.
Give me strength in serving You
as a follower of Christ.
May the Eucharist bring me Your Forgiveness
and give me freedom to serve You all my life.
May it help me to remain faithful
and give me the grace I need in Your service.
May it teach me the way to eternal life.

Father, I belong to you.
I place myself anew in your hands
and acknowledge you as Master and Lord of my life.
Grant me the gift of a forgiving heart
and cleanse me of any anger,
hostility or revenge.
Heal my hurts and wounds and teach me to rely on your love.
Grant me wisdom of heart
and strengthen me by your grace to move on in faith,
in trust and in love.
Thank you Lord for you love in my life.

Amen.

I beg you, Lord,
let the fiery, gentle power of your love
take possession of my soul,
and snatch it away
from everything under heaven,
that I may die for love of your love
as you saw fit to die for love of mine.

Amen.

O Divine Eternal Father,
in union with your Divine Son and the Holy Spirit,
and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
I beg You to destroy the Power of your greatest enemy,
the evil spirits.

Cast them into the deepest recesses of hell
and chain them there forever!
Take possession of your Kingdom
which You have created and which is rightfully yours.

Heavenly Father,
give us the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

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.

November 2, 2017

My God,
bestow Your blessings and Your mercies
on all persons
and on those souls in Purgatory
for whom I am in charity, gratitude, or friendship bound
and have the desire to pray.

November 1, 2017

Almighty and Everlasting God,
who placed the flame of Your love in the hearts of the saints,
grant us the same faith and power of love
as we rejoice in their triumphs.
May their prayers bring us your forgiveness and love
that we may profit by their examples, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Have Mercy, O gentle Jesus! 
on the Souls detained in Purgatory. 
Thou Who for their ransom didst take upon Thyself 
our human nature and suffer the most cruel death, 
pity their sighs and the tears shed 
when they raise their longing eyes toward Thee; 
and by virtue of Thy Passion, 
cancel the penalty due to their sins. 

May Thy Blood, O tender Jesus, 
Thy Precious Blood, descend into Purgatory
to solace and refresh those who there languish in captivity. 
Reach forth Thy hand to them, 
and lead them into the realms of refreshment, 
light and peace.

Amen.

October 30, 2017

Father, God of all consolation, 
in Your unending love and mercy for us 
You turn the darkness of death into the dawn of new life. 
Through Your Son, Jesus Christ, 
we ask You to deliver the souls in Purgatory, 
especially those for whom we now pray.

Welcome them into Your presence 
and bless them with eternal light and peace. 
Raise them up to live forever with all Your saints 
in the glory of the Resurrection. 
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

October 29, 2017

O God, whose only-begotten Son, 
by His life, death and resurrection, 
has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; 
grant, we beseech Thee, that, 
meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary 
of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 
we may imitate what they contain 
and obtain what they promise, 
through the same Christ our Lord. 

Amen.

Lord Jesus, our Savior and our brother,
listen to our prayer and look with love on Your child.
Visit him/her in this time of sickness
and fill him/her with the gifts of your Spirit,
that he/she may have the courage to carry your cross,
the strength to believe in your love,
and the faith to persevere in hope and prayer.
Restore his/her strength
and bring him/her back to full health.

Lord Jesus, unite our prayer to your own,
and present it to God most high.
To God be glory and praise for ever and ever.

Amen.

O holy angel, at my side,
Go to church for me,
Kneel in my place at Holy Mass
Where I desire to be.
At Offertory, in my stead,
Take all I am and own,
And place it as a sacrifice
Upon the Alter Throne.
At Holy Consecrations bell,
Adore with Seraph's love.
My Jesus hidden in the Host,
Come down from Heaven above.
And when the Priest, communion takes,
Oh, bring my Lord to me,
That His sweet heart may rest on mine,
And I His temple be.
