The Memorare of St. Bernard
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary; that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, and sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother, to thee, O Virgins of Virgins, my Mother, to thee I come, before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of word incarnate, despise not my petitions, but, in thy mercy, hear and answer me.
Prayer to the Sacred Heart
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, filled with infinite love; broken by our ingratitude and pierced by our sins; yet loving us still; accept the consecration we make to thee of all that we are and all that we have.
Take every faculty of our souls and bodies, only day by day draw us nearer and nearer to Thy Sacred Heart; and there as we shall hear the lesson, teach us Thy Holy Way.
I will bless every place where a picture of my heart shall be exposed and honoured.
Prayer to St. Martin de Porres
Most humble Saint Martin whose burning charity embraces all, but especially those who are sick, afflicted or in need, we turn to thee for help in our present difficulties and we implore thee to obtain for us from God health of soul and body, and in particular the favour we now ask………May we, by imitating thy charity and humility, find quiet and contentment all our days, and cheerful submission to God’s holy will in all the trials and difficulties of life.
God made us a family
We need one another
We love one another
We forgive one another
We work together
We play together
We worship together
Together we use God’s word
Together we grow in Christ
Together we love all men
Together we serve our God
Together we hope for Heaven
These are our hopes and ideals
Help us to attain them, O God,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Prayer to St. Michael
St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. We humbly beseech God to command him, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the divine power, thrust into hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who roam through the world, seeking the ruin of souls.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow Love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, Faith.
Where there is despair, Hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, Joy.
O Divine Master, let me not so much seek to be loved as to love.
