Prayers




Daily Offering



"He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved.
But he that believeth not shall be condemned."
Salvation and Damnation (St. Mark 16: 15-16)









Pray for an end to the murder of innocent babies in the womb



Abortion cries out to God our Father for judgment against an uncaring generation deaf to their silent screams.

The Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life, cannot abide in any unrepentant soul that accepts, condones, or assents to this heinous crime.


There is no greater moral imperative in our time



"And Jesus said: neither will I condemn thee. Go and now sin no more." (Jn 8:11)


Pray that each woman who has had an abortion will hear Jesus' invitation:

'Come into the embrace of My Mercy, and the promise of My Eternal salvation.'










To the Eternal Father

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus Christ, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere in the Universal Church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.




To the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary

I offer all my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered throughout the world this day, in reparation for my sins and the sins of the whole world.

I offer them for the perseverance of the just; for the gift of final repentance and salvation of the dying, particularly those who have no one to pray for them; for the relief and release of the Holy Souls in Purgatory, especially those most forlorn; for an end to contraception and abortion, and all other abuses against the gift of life; for our Holy Father's General and Mission intentions, and his well-being; and for those who have asked for or are in need of prayer; for the conversion of sinners, the world, and Russia.

I humbly ask for the grace to live in Your love and according to Your Most Holy will, and for the grace to take the next step toward sainthood that you so desire for me. Amen.




An Offering of the Precious Blood for Souls *

O my God, I beg of Thee, in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, through the merits of the Precious Blood offered to Thee in every Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, to grant that, this day, one sinner may be converted, one mortal sin be averted, one soul in doubt be converted to truth, one soul about to die in sin receive the grace of repentance and a happy death, and the deliverance of that soul in Purgatory which is nearest Heaven. I wish, by this offering, to console the Heart of Jesus in Agony for souls lost through the teaching of error against the true Church of Christ Jesus, our Lord. Amen.




Morning Offering **

O my God, I adore you, and love you with all my heart. I thank you for having created me, having saved me by your grace, and having preserved me during the night.

I offer you all my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day. Grant that they may be according to your will and for your greater glory. Keep me from all sin and evil, and may your grace be with me always and with those I love. Amen.




Morning Offering to the Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit, fill my heart with Your holy gifts. Let my weakness be penetrated with Your strength this very day that I may fulfill all the duties of my state conscientiously, that I may do what is right and just.

Let my charity be such as to offend no one, and hurt no one's feelings; so generous as to pardon sincerely any wrong done to me.

Assist me in the trials of life. Enlighten my ignorance, advise me in my doubts, strengthen my weaknesses, help me in all my needs and embarassment. Protect me in temptations and console me in all afflictions.

Graciously hear me, O Holy Spirit, and pour Your light into my heart, my soul, and my mind. Assist me to live a holy life and grow in goodness and grace. Amen.




To the Holy Spirit

O Holy Spirit, Beloved of my soul . . . I adore you! Enlighten me, guide me, strengthen me, console me. Tell me what I should do: give me your orders. I promise to submit myself to all You desire of me, and to accept all that happens to me. Let me only know Your will. Amen.
