Daily Prayer - Compassion for the Sick

July 22, 2017

Compassion for the Sick

Merciful Jesus, 
during Your life on earth 
You showed great concern for the sick and the infirm. 
Have compassion now on all those 
who are sick or in pain. 
Grant them a healing of mind and body 
and restore their strength and spirit. 
Comfort them with the knowledge 
that we are praying for them, 
and give them peace with a sense of Your presence. 
May they know that in the special way

Those in Agony

Infinitely merciful Father, 
I offer You by the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary 
with St. Joseph, 
the nine choirs of Angels 
and all the Saints, 
the adorations, praises, love and infinite holiness of Your beloved Son, 
Our Lord Jesus Christ, 
His heart wounded and burning with love, 
all His blood shed for us, 
all His sacred wounds 
and in them my life and sufferings of all people,

Good Resolutions

O my God, I give You heartfelt thanks 
for all the graces You have conferred on me.
Pardon me, I beseech You, 
of all the negligence and the distractions 
of which I have been guilty. 
Give me strength to carry out the resolutions that I have made.

and recall them to my memory, 
if I should ever forget or neglect them.

Nurse's Prayer

O most Sacred Heart of Jesus, 
King and center of all hearts, 
dwell in our hearts and be our King;

Daily Prayer - How Sweet and Lovely You Are

July 17, 2017

How Sweet and Lovely You Are

O Mary, I wish I could see how 
you behaved toward your father and mother, 
especially toward St. Anne; 
and then how you behaved toward the priests of the temple; 
and then toward St. Joseph; 
and toward St. Elizabeth, 
and St. John the Baptist; 
and afterwards toward the Apostles. 
I should see how sweet 
and lovely you were to every one of them; 

Daily Prayer - Merits of Your Sacrifice

July 15, 2017

Merits of Your Sacrifice

O Lord Jesus, 
in order that the merits of your sacrifice on the Cross 
might be applied to every soul of all time, 
you willed that it should be renewed upon the altar. 
At the Last Supper, you said: 
"Do this in remembrance of me." 
By these words you gave your apostles and their successors 
the power to consecrate 
and the command to do what you yourself did. 

Daily Prayer - Pure Heart

July 14, 2017

Pure Heart

O Guardian and father, Saint Joseph, 
to whose faithful custody
Christ Jesus and Mary was committed; 
I pray and beseech you by each of these dear pledges, 
Jesus and Mary, that, 
being preserved from all uncleanness, 
I may with spotless mind, pure heart, 
and a chaste body, 
ever serve Jesus and Mary all the days of my life.


Daily Prayer - I Offer Myself

July 13, 2017

O Lord, Let me unite with You, 
that I may more deeply love You. 
May I help make reparation to Your adorable Heart 
and the heart of Your Mother, Mary. 
With greatest love, 
I offer myself to You 
and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. 
I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. 
Come and possess my soul.
