My God, through Mother Marie-Rose's daring faith
direct our lives on the road which leads to You
and grant us the favor we solicit from You.

God our Father, we ask You to manifest
the holiness of Your faithful servant,
Mother Marie-Rose by extraordinary signs
so that the Church may proclaim her a saint
and call upon her as a public witness
to Christian life based on the Gospels.

Remember her heroic virtues as the foundress
of our Congregation, her zeal for Christian education,
her love for Jesus and Mary.

Remember her great love for You, O Father,
and graciously grant the favors we confidently ask
through her intercession.

O Jesus, who filled Your handmaid Sister Faustina
with profound veneration for Your boundless Mercy,
design, if it be Your holy will,
to grant me, through her intercession
the grace for which I fervently pray.

My sins render me unworthy of Your mercy,
but be mindful of Saint Faustina's spirit
of sacrifice and self-denial,
and reward her virtue by granting the petition which,
with childlike confidence,
I present to You through her intercession.

Saint Faustina, pray for us.

Let everyone be struck with fear,
the whole world tremble,
and the heavens exult
when Christ, the Son of the living God,
is present on the alter in the hands of a priest!
O wonderful loftiness
and stupendous dignity!
O sublime humility!
The Lord of the universe,
God and the Son of God,
so humbles Himself
that He hides Himself
for our salvation
under an ordinary piece of bread!

See the humility of God, brothers,
and pour out your hearts before Him.
Humble yourselves
That you may be exalted by Him.
Hold back nothing of yourselves for yourselves,
that He Who gives Himself totally to you
may receive you totally!

Almighty God, Grant peace to the nation of Myanmar,
and to every heart made fearful by conflict and tension.
Give wisdom and compassion to leaders
that they may listen patiently, seek justice
and care for the poor of every race and religion.
Sustain Your Church with strength to proclaim Your good news,
and to speak love and hope into pain and division.
We ask these things in the name of Your Son,
Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.

Amen.

Bless the Lord, all you His Angels!
You who are mighty in strength and do His Will,
intercede for me at the throne of God.
By your unceasing watchfulness,
protect me in every danger of soul and body.
Obtain for me the grace of final perseverance,
so that after this life,
I may be admitted to your glorious company
and sing with you the praises of God for all eternity.
All you holy Angels and Archangels,
Thrones and Dominations,
Principalities and Powers
and Virtues of Heaven, Cherubim and Seraphim,
and especially you, my dear Guardian Angel,
intercede for me and obtain for me the special favor
I now ask.

Amen.

May the Heavenly Mystery, O Lord,
inflame us with the fire of that love
by which Saint Teresa, Your Virgin,
offered herself to You
as a victim of charity for mankind.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
Who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God,
world without end.

Amen.

St. Jerome, through your anger and confrontations
you remind us that we all have a duty
to challenge others from time to time.
You also remind us that we have a duty
to examine ourselves and confront
our own weaknesses and harmful behaviors.
Your life teaches that I must accept others
for who they are.
You taught of the danger of self-righteousness;
of the importance of reflecting upon
one of Jesus' most insightful teachings:
"Let the man who has no sin on his conscience
throw the first stone.";
In the light of your teachings, Saint Jerome,
help me to see my own self clearly.
Help me to confront my own biases
and to act to change others only out of love.
Help me to remember that love alone
can make changes for the good.

Amen.

Glorious Prince of the heavenly hosts
and victor over rebellious spirits,
be mindful of me who am so weak and sinful
and yet so prone to pride and ambition.
Lend me, I pray, your powerful aid
in every temptation and difficulty,
and above all do not forsake me
in my last struggle with the powers of evil.

Amen.

Lord Jesus, may everything I do begin with You,
continue with Your help,
and be done under Your guidance.
May my sharing in the Mass free me from my sins,
and make me worthy of Your healing.
May I grow in Your Love and Your service,
and become a pleasing offering to You;
and with You to Your Father.
May the mystery I celebrate help me
to reach eternal life with you.

Noble Saint Vincent DePaul,
beloved servant of the poor,
may we follow your example and do good works
among those whom society has abandoned,
enslaved, or forgotten.
Inspire us to feed the hungry, to love a child,
to provide comfort and medicine to the sick,
to clothe those whose garments are tattered,
and to offer hope and our Lord's words
to all who need relief.
Pray for us to our beloved God
that we may commit ourselves selflessly
to doing the same charitable acts
that you did all your life, and intercede with him
that we may have the favor of his guidance
and strength and love upon this important
and meaningful work.

Amen.

Heavenly Father, we thank You
for raising Your Servant, St. Paul VI,
to be numbered among the Saints.
May his example of faith,
courage and patient endurance
inspire us in our daily living of the Gospel
and in our witness to Jesus Christ.

May we too be Prophets of life,
respecting, protecting and cherishing the gift of life,
most especially in its most vulnerable moments.

May we too be Your missionaries at this time,
seeking to transform the hearts of all men and women
through the joy we find in Christ.

Hear our prayers, most Merciful Father,
and grant us through the intercession of Saint Paul
the graces we now ask of You
Through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Good morning my Lord,
I can't believe it's morning again!
It seems that I'm always busy and rushing around.
But no matter how rushed life may be,
help me to think of You always.
Thank you for another glorious day,
may Your word be always on my lips
in my heart and on my mind.
I love you my Lord, Savior and friend.

Amen.

God the Father,
I thank You for creating me.

God the Son,
I thank You for redeeming me.

God the Holy Ghost,
I thank You for sanctifying me;
infuse into my thoughts,
words and actions Your grace,
so that they may be supernaturally pleasing to You
and supernaturally rewarding to me, forever.

O Blessed Trinity,
abundantly assist me in becoming that
which You intended me to become
when You created me, for in that perfection
I will give You the glory You desire of me,
and in that perfection I will find
my greatest joy in heaven.

Amen.

Dear God, You have hast generously blessed
Your servant, St. Pio of Pietrelcina,
with the gifts of the Spirit.
You have marked his body
with the five wounds of Christ Crucified,
as a powerful witness to the saving Passion
and Death of Your Son.
Endowed with the gift of discernment,
St. Pio labored endlessly in the confessional
for the salvation of souls.
With reverence and intense devotion
in the celebration of Mass,
he invited countless men and women
to a greater union with Jesus Christ
in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

Through the intercession of St. Pio of Pietrelcina,
I confidently ask You to grant my intentions.

Amen.

Blessed Saint Joseph,
holy guardian of Jesus and Mary,
assist us by your prayers
in all the necessities of life.
Ask of Jesus that special grace
which He granted to you,
to watch over our home
at the pillow of the sick and the dying,
so that with Mary and with you,
heaven may find our family unbroken
in the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Amen.
