Dear Jesus, at times I need to rest in the atmosphere
of your loving kindness.
The daily duties and tasks, though quite worthy.
can be stifling and draining.
Your breath, your spirit revives and brings joy.

Lord, send the new light
of your dawn into my inner self.

Make shadows fade, pull back the blind,
let dazzling light cascade
into every corner of my mind.

Lord, send the new warmth
of your sun into my heart,
let me sense your healing love,
like sun rising gently above
sleepy land on a misty morn
to give me a fresh new start.

God of mercy,
You inspired Saint Clare with the love of poverty.
By the help of her prayers
may we follow Christ in poverty of spirit
and come to the joyful vision of Your glory
in the Kingdom of heaven.
We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.

Heavenly St. Lawrence, model of fortitude,
Shield me against my selfishness
and my indifference to God and my neighbor.
Inspire me to imitate your Christian virtues.
May your blessing be with me always,
so that I may see and serve Christ in others
and work for His Kingdom.
Graciously obtain for me from God those favors and graces

My tender Mother,
obtain for me a deep humility from God,
internal and external humility,
a deep knowledge of myself,
and a spirit of mortification
so that I humble myself before God and creatures.
Help me to have contempt and humiliations loved,
but myself despised.
Mirror of humility grant me the virtue of humility and obedience.

O God, who has enlightened Your Church
by the eminent virtues
and preaching of St. Dominic,
Your confessor,
our Father mercifully grant that by his prayers
we may be provided against all temporal necessities
and daily improve in all spiritual good.
Through Christ Our Lord.

O glorious St. Cajetan,
you spent long hours helping the sick and worked yourself to exhaustion
in helping victims of plagues which were frequent in your time.
You cared for the sick not just to heal them,
but to guide them to a happy death.
You wanted their souls, not their bodies.
Help us to understand that we have to prepare ourselves to a happy death.

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.

Father, I dedicate this new day to you, as I go about my work.
I ask you to bless those with whom I come in contact.
Lord, I pray for all those who work during this pandemic.
Keep them safe and give them satisfaction and pride in what they do.
