Prayer for Insight

St. Jerome, through your anger and confrontations
you remind us that we all have a duty
to challenge others from time to time.
You also remind us that we have a duty
to examine ourselves and confront
our own weaknesses and harmful behaviors.
Your life teaches that I must accept others
for who they are.
You taught of the danger of self-righteousness;
of the importance of reflecting upon
one of Jesus' most insightful teachings:
"Let the man who has no sin on his conscience
throw the first stone.";

Your Guidance

Lord Jesus, may everything I do begin with You,
continue with Your help,
and be done under Your guidance.
May my sharing in the Mass free me from my sins,
and make me worthy of Your healing.
May I grow in Your Love and Your service,
and become a pleasing offering to You;
and with You to Your Father.
May the mystery I celebrate help me
to reach eternal life with you.

Noble Saint Vincent DePaul,
beloved servant of the poor,
may we follow your example and do good works
among those whom society has abandoned,
enslaved, or forgotten.
Inspire us to feed the hungry, to love a child,
to provide comfort and medicine to the sick,
to clothe those whose garments are tattered,
and to offer hope and our Lord's words
to all who need relief.
Pray for us to our beloved God
that we may commit ourselves selflessly
to doing the same charitable acts
that you did all your life, and intercede with him

Heavenly Father, we thank You
for raising Your Servant, St. Paul VI,

I will give You the glory You desire of me,

at the pillow of the sick and the dying,
so that with Mary and with you,
heaven may find our family unbroken
in the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Amen.
