Behold the One Mediator between God and men,
the Man Christ Jesus,
my Advocate and High-Priest,
Who intercedes for me.
Him do I offer and plead before You,
who committed no sin,
but bore the sins of the world,
and by whose stripes we are healed.
O Glorious St. Bartholomew,
Jesus called you a person without guile
and you saw in this word a sign
that he was the Son of God and King of Israel.
Obtain for us the grace to be
ever guileless and innocent as doves.
At the same time, help us to have
Heavenly Father, caring and loving God,
You never fail to help me when I
call upon You in my time of need.
Guide the doctors
who are treating me in my illness.
Help the nurses and staff
who are caring for me.
O most merciful Father,
who has so loved me as to give me
Your only-begotten Son for my food and drink,
and with Him all things,
look upon the Face of Your Anointed,
in whom Your art well pleased.
This Your Beloved Son,
and with Him my heart,
Most holy Virgin,
who pleased our Lord and became his mother,
Virgin Immaculate in your body and soul,
in your body and soul,
in your faith and love,
at this solemn jubilee
of the promulgation of the dogma
which proclaimed you to the entire world
O Blessed Virgin,
Mother of my God and Savior,
present my petitions to your Son.
O all the Angels and Saints, citizens of heaven,
join also your prayers with mine.
You stand always before the Throne,
and see Him face to face,
O Lord Jesus Christ,
in presenting ourselves before Your adorable Face
to ask of You the graces of which we stand most in need,
we beseech You above all,
to grant us that interior disposition
of never refusing at any time to do what You require of us
O compassionate Mother, not to forget us.
Grant, O Lady, that we,
your devout children,
may be favored more beyond comparison
than are all other men on earth,
The whole world should know that the dear children of Mary
are the best of Heaven and earth:
Grant, O Lord, to Your Church,
assurance of freedom and immunity from harm;
give peace and order to all nations,
and make the earth resound
from pole to pole with one cry:
God of Mercy and Compassion -
Holy Mother Mary,
we all rejoice with you today
on the feast of your glorious Assumption into heaven.
You have been taken up body and soul into heaven.
There, with your Divine Son,
you await our coming,
and prepare a place for us.
Be the King, O Lord,
not only of the faithful who have never forsaken You,
but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned You,
grant that they may quickly return to their Father's house,
lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.
Oh Dear Jesus,
we are so far away from Your most pure and Sacred Heart.
As a family we need Your help.
Heal all the quarrels that exist
in our family due to our unforgiveness
and lack of love for You.
Heal our unbelieving and unconverted hearts
O Immaculate Mother,
lead us to Heaven,
inflame us with the Divine Love,
let shine upon us that same light of glory
which You behold forever!
Let us see What You see and gaze upon Him in Trinity,
that we may share the fullness of Your Heart’s joy forever!
