Most sweet Jesus,
Redeemer of the human race,
look down upon us,
humbly prostrate before Your altar.
Oh most Sacred Heart of Jesus,
we come to you as a family
and consecrate ourselves to Your Sacred Heart.
Protect us through Your Most Precious Blood
and keep us pure and holy.
Loving Mary, Mother of Jesus and our mother too.
Thank you for always saying yes to God’s call.
We praise Jesus, the fruit of your yes.
Bless all women who are with child.
Help them see the great gift they carry.
May their response like yours be a yes to life.
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,
and my Redeemer.
I offer You all that I have,
all that I am,
all that depends on me;
I offer You my mind to think of You,
my heart to love You;
At the Transfiguration, Father, You showed
Jesus in glory, a glimpse of what His disciples
would see in His risen life.
Bless us in our humanity,
with an awareness of Your presence,
leading us to share in Your divine life
even in our daily struggle.
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.
O Immaculate Virgin Mary,
Mother of God and Queen of Heaven and Earth,
Through you shines the whole splendor
and magnificence of the Trinity!
O Morning Star, who has merited to usurp the name of the first fallen Star!
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.
Heavenly Father, You made the sunset
of my life more beautiful by unlocking the door
to eternal life through the death
and resurrection of Your Son.
Renew my faith, and prepare my heart
as I draw nearer to my heavenly home.
Jesus Christ, my God,
I adore You and I thank You
for the many favors You have bestowed on me this day.
I offer You my sleep
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,
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;
who sing Its glory and power,
who to It owes the privileges
of your Immaculate Conception
and Divine Maternity,
On Calvary you heard a voice,
well-known to you, which said:
"Woman, behold your Son".
By these words you were appointed the Mother of all believers.
