MERCIFUL FATHER, from Whom all goodness comes, we give You thanks for all the
favors You have given us.
Forgive our faults and ingratitude, and watch over
us with Fatherly care.
JESUS, Savior of all, You show us in Your Heart Your infinite love
and Priestly sorrows.
Grant us the grace to contemplate them with a thankful
love, share them with You,
and thus offer You consolation. May we obtain
graces for the Church and especially for Your priests.
HOLY SPIRIT, You proceed from the Father and the Son. Come dwell
Grant us the grace to become living hosts with Jesus by sharing
in His love, purity and sacrifice.
Let us ask for the grace to share with Mary the mystery of Jesus' Passion:
At the cross her station keeping,
Mary stood in sorrow weeping,
When her Son was crucified.
Mary, fount of love's devotion,
Let me share with true emotion
All the sorrow you endured.
Let me, to my latest breath,
In my body bear the death,
Of your dying Son divine.
Wounded with his every wound,
Steep my soul till it has swooned
In His very Blood away.
Savior, when my life shall leave me,
Through your mother's prayers
With the fruits of victory.
V. St. Michael, our protector.
R. Pray for us.
V. For the canonization of Concepción Cabrera, Félix de Jesús, Ramón Ibarra,
Moisés Lira, Luis María Martínez, Alfonso Pérez and Pablo Guzmán.
R. Glorify your Servants, Lord.
V. For our benefactors,
R. Lord, fill them with your graces and grant them your gift of eternal life.
V. For the deceased, especially for priests and for our relatives.
R. By your death and resurrection, Lord, bring them into your eternal Kingdom.
BLESSING: May the Holy Spirit, source of all purity, communicate His
purity to us through the Cross.
May He keep our body, our soul and our whole
being always pure and without stain. Amen.
