O glorious St. Paul,
once a persecutor of Christianity,
you become a most ardent apostle of zeal;
who to made known the Savior Jesus Christ
to the ends of the world, suffered imprisonment with joy,
scourging, stonings, shipwrecks
and persecutions of every kind,
and in the end shed your blood to the last drop,
obtain for us the grace to receive,
O glorious St. Paul,
Lord, I am Yours,
and I must belong to no one but You.
My soul is Yours,
and must live only by You.
My will is Yours,
and must love only for You.
I must love You as my first cause,
since I am from You.
I must love You as my end and rest,
since I am for You.
I must love You more than my own being,
Saint Vincent Pallotti,
you were molded by God, the infinite love.
You answered God's call to serve Him.
You were there for those seeking counsel,
for the sick, for the youth and the aging,
for the rich and the poor,
for people of any profession and walk of life.
O Mary, we pray to you
for our Christian brothers and sisters
who are still separated
from our Catholic family.
See how a glorious group of them
celebrate with fidelity and love.
See also how among another group,
who are so intent on calling themselves Christians,
there now dawns the remembrance
and the veneration of you,
O Little St. Agnes,
so young and yet made so strong
and wise by the power of God,
protect by your prayers
all the young people of every place
whose goodness and purity are threatened
by the evils and impurities of this world.
When I lived in Hallim on Jeju Island I knew two delightful old people, namely Mrs. and Mr. Kim. I came to know them through the Isidore Development Association's Social Welfare Apostolate for the Aged, for which I worked. At that time the couple was taking care of their son, Tae Gyu, and his young son, whose mother
look upon the church,
look upon the most responsible members
of the Mystical Body of Christ
gathered about you to thank you
and to celebrate you as their Mother.
Holy Mary, bless the great assembly of the hierarchical church,
which also gives birth to brothers and sisters of Christ,
the firstborn among redeemed humankind.
Blessed be God.
Blessed be His Holy Name.
Blessed be Jesus Christ, true God and true man.
Blessed be the Name of Jesus.
Blessed be His Most Sacred Heart.
Blessed be His Most Precious Blood.
Blessed be Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.
Blessed be Mary, the Most Holy Mother of God.
Blessed be her holy and immaculate Conception.
O God of my soul,
I am sincerely sorry
for not having loved You.
Instead of having loved You,
I have, for the sake of my pleasures,
offended and despised Your infinite goodness:
I have turned my back upon You;
in a word, O my God,
I have voluntarily lost You.
Lord, I am sorry,
from the bottom of my heart,
for all my sins.
