Prayer

I believe, O Lord; but strengthen my faith…
Heart of Jesus, I love Thee; but increase my love.
Heart of Jesus, I trust in Thee; but give greater vigor to my confidence.
Heart of Jesus, I give my heart to Thee; but so enclose it in Thee that it may never be separated from Thee.
Heart of Jesus, I am all Thine; but take care of my promise so that I may be able to put it in practice even unto the complete sacrifice of my life.

—Blessed Miguel Pro, SJ

Prayer

Almighty and eternal God,
You blessed the union of married couples
so that they might reflect the union of Christ with his Church:
look with kindness on them.
Renew their marriage covenant,
increase your love in them,
and strengthen their bond of peace so that, with their children,
they may always rejoice in the gift of your blessing.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Stay with us, Lord Jesus.

Prayer

God, nothing is beneath your notice because you love all things into being. Help me to seek out the one who is lost, to rejoice in the finding of that one and, little by little, to become humble like a child. 

—Fr. Matt Spotts, SJ


Prayer

God of love, help me follow your laws of love.  Help me to tame my selfishness and love you and others better through word and deed. Help me to offer to others the generosity and hospitality that you have shown to me in my life.   Amen


Prayer

Good and gracious God, we place our trust in you, despite not knowing exactly what is in store for us.  Increase our faith that we will receive all that you offer. May we never doubt that you keep your promises to us.  Amen.

Prayer

Lord, help us to create an ideal society that is centered on you. Amen.

Prayer

“Take up your cross,” the Savior said,
“if you would my disciple be;
take up your cross with willing heart,
and humbly follow after me.”

Take up your cross; let not its weight
fill your weak spirit with alarm;
Christ’s strength shall bear your spirit up
and brace your heart and nerve your arm.

Take up your cross, heed not the shame,
and let your foolish heart be still;
the Lord for you accepted death
upon a cross, on Calv’ry’s hill.

Take up your cross, then, in Christ’s strength,
and calmly ev’ry danger brave:
it guides you to abundant life
and leads to vict’ry o’er the grave.

—Text of  Take Up Your Cross by Charles W. Everest
