Lead Us Back to Holiness

Hear, Lord, the prayers we offer from contrite hearts.
Have pity on us as we acknowledge our sins.
Lead us back to the way of holiness.
Protect us now and always from the wounds of sin.
May we ever keep safe in all its fullness
the gift your love once gave us

Holy Mary Be Our Guide

Hail Mary, Woman of sorrows
Mother of the living!
Virgin spouse beneath the Cross, the new Eve,
Be our guide along the paths of the world.
Teach us to experience and to spread the love of Christ,
to stand with you before the innumerable crosses

to bridle my tongue,
to restrain my eyes,
and to mortify my senses.

Prayer of Awe

You, O eternal Trinity,
are a deep sea into which,
the more I enter,
the more I find.
And the more I find,
the more I seek.
O abyss, O eternal Godhead,
O sea profound,
what more could you give me than yourself?

Your Servants are Listening

Lord, we are here to be attentive to your Word;
we are here to search for Your Truth.
Speak to us, Lord, Your servants are listening.
Teach us to listen and respond.
Lord, in the noise and bustle of life
it is not easy to find Your Truth.

Change Our Lives

God our Father, 
only You can give meaning and purpose to life.
Let Your Word, rich as it is,
pierce deeply into our hearts
and change our lives,
so that we may know life at its best,
and learn to live for You and for others.
Through Christ our Lord.

The Greatest Power

Help me, dear Lord,
to really believe that Christian love is the greatest power in the world.
Let me see that this is not an emotion,
but a central attitude of one's being,
an attitude of service for others in Your Name.
It is the result of your grace,

Mother of Sorrows

I beseech you,
O Lord Jesus Christ,
that the Blessed Virgin Mary,
whose most holy soul was pierced
in the hour of your Passion
by the sword of sorrow,
may intercede for us
with Your mercy now
and at the hour of our death.

I Put My Trust in You

In the needs which press upon me from every side

9/11 Prayer for Peace

God of peace, bring your peace to our violent world:
peace in the hearts of all men and women
and peace among the nations of the earth.
Turn to your way of love
those who’s hearts and minds
are consumed with hatred.

Who lives and reigns
