Dear Lord much of what is going on in my life
seems to be of no use.
One day is the same as the day before and on and on.
Sometimes I wonder where it is all going.
But then I realize that if I simply place it all in your hands
you will make sense of it all.
You have placed me here and now
for some specific purpose.

I, a faithless sinner -
renew and ratify today in your hands,
O Immaculate Mother,
the vows of my Baptism;
I renounce forever Satan,
his pomp and works;
and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ,
the Incarnate Wisdom,
to carry my cross after Him
all the days of my life,
and to be more faithful to Him
than I have ever been before.

Breath in me, Spirit of God,
that I may think what is holy;
drive me, Spirit of God,
that I may do what is holy;
draw me Spirit of God,
that I may love what is holy;
strengthen me, Spirit of God,
that I may preserve what is holy;
guard me, Spirit of God,
that I may never lose what is holy.

O Mary, grant that this church of Christ,
in defining itself, will acknowledge you
as its most chosen mother, daughter, and sister,
as well as its incomparable model,

We ask you now that we may be made
worthy of honoring you
because of who you are
and because of what you do

Behold me, my beloved Jesus,
weighed down under the burden
of my trials and sufferings,
I cast myself at Your feet, that You may renew
my strength and my courage,
while I rest here in Your Presence.
Permit me to lay down my cross in Your Sacred Heart,
for only Your infinite goodness can sustain me;
only Your love can help me bear my cross;

Show us, we ask You, O Lord,
in Your clemency, Your unspeakable mercy,
that You may both cleanse us from all our sins,
and deliver us from the punishments
which they have deserved.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
Who lives and reigns world without end.

Sometimes I am amazed, Lord, at the people
you have chosen to do your work.
But you see beyond the superficial to the hidden goodness
and abilities of the people you have made in your image.
Help me to accept the gifts you have bestowed on me
and to offer them to others.
It would be a shame if out of a false sense of humility

 Glorious St. Matthew
through the grace of God,
Our Father, you gave us the Holy Gospel,

O My God,
I love you above all things,
with my whole heart and soul,
because you are all-good and worthy of all love.
I love my neighbor as myself for the love of you.
I forgive all who have injured me,
and ask pardon of all whom I have injured.
