I give you thanks for all the benefits
which you have ever bestowed on me
in body and in soul.

Prayer for Protection

O Mary, powerful Virgin,
you are the mighty and glorious
Protector of the Church.
You are the marvelous
help of Christians.

every heresy in the entire Church.
In the midst of my anguish,
my struggles and my distress,
defend me from the power
of the enemy, and at the hour
of my death, receive my soul into Paradise.

Help Us to Live

Saint Michael, your heart was filled
with great charity for God and man.
Our Lord returned your love
and allowed you to exchange mystically
your heart with His.
Pray for all whose hearts afflicted
with illness, fear, or loneliness.
Teach us to be resigned to God's will
in all the trials and sicknesses.
Help us to live as you lived -
to do good now and for eternity.

which You extend to all creation,
and especially to us,
made in Your image and likeness.

of protection to all families.
Bless our families and bless our land,
that we may have the joy of life
in your service always mindful
that You are the Eternal Father.

Grant Me Grace

Grant me grace, O merciful God,
to desire ardently all that is pleasing to You,
to examine it prudently,
to acknowledge it truthfully,
and to accomplish it perfectly,
for the praise and glory of Your name.


May I Never Lose Heart

Father All-holy, I thank You
for the life of Blessed George Matulaitis,
totally dedicated to the cause
of Christ the Savior, in which he persevered
disregarding difficulties and suffering.
Through his intercession, I ask You
to grant that I never lose heart
because of life's difficulties,
but entrust everything to You
and steadfastly walk along the road
of the Christian life.
Just like Blessed George,
may I dwell with You within my heart,
rejoicing, working, and suffering with You.

Prayer to St. Timothy

Saint Timothy, pray for me that I, too,
may one day glorify the Blessed Trinity 
in heaven.
Obtain for me your lively faith,
that I may consider all persons, 
things, and events in the light 
of almighty God.
Pray, that I may be generous in making 
sacrifices of temporal things to promote 
my eternal interests, as you so wisely did.
Set me on fire with a love for Jesus,
that I may thirst for His sacraments
and burn with zeal for the spread 
of His kingdom.
By your powerful intercession,
