O Mary, Pity My Heart

O Mary, Mary more beautiful than all creatures,
lovely after Jesus above all loves,
more dear than all created things,
gracious above every grace,
pity this miserable heart of mine;
miserable because it does not love you;
and it ought to love you.

I adore You, O my God,
present in the holy Eucharist,
as my Creator,

my heart to love You;

Transfiguration of the Lord

At the Transfiguration, Father, You showed
Jesus in glory, a glimpse of what His disciples
would see in His risen life.

with an awareness of Your presence,
leading us to share in Your divine life
even in our daily struggle.

Prayer of St. Gregory the Great

O Lord, You received affronts
without number from Your blasphemers,
yet each day You free captive souls
from the grip of the ancient enemy.

You accepted Your scourging without murmur,
yet through your meditation
You deliver us from endless chastisements.

Through you shines the whole splendor

A Farmer’s Prayer to Mary

O Blessed Lady of the Fields,
who lived with and loved the rural folk of the village,
look down graciously upon the fields and pastures of this,
your adopted land.

Make our homes sanctuaries of Christ as was your home.
Make our fields fertile and abundant.

My Heavenly Home

Heavenly Father, You made the sunset

Renew my faith, and prepare my heart

St. Adolphonsus’ Prayer Before Sleep

Jesus Christ, my God,
I adore You and I thank You
for the many favors You have bestowed on me this day.

and all the moments of this night,
and I pray that You preserve me from sin.
Therefore, I place myself in Your most sacred side,

Prayer of St. Ignatius Loyola

Lord Jesus, teach me to be generous,
to serve You as You deserve:
to give without counting the cost,
to fight heedless of the wounds,
to work and not seek for rest,
to toil and not seek for reward,
save the reward of knowing I am doing Your will.

Saints of God,
who owe Your happiness to the Blood of Jesus;

Heavenly Virgin,
who to It owes the privileges
of your Immaculate Conception
and Divine Maternity,

By these words you were appointed the Mother of all believers.
