Jesus, may all that is you flow into me.

May your Body and Blood be my food and drink.

May your passion and death be my strength and life.

Jesus, with you by my side enough has been given.

May the shelter I seek be the shadow of your cross.

Let me not run from the love which you offer,

but hold me safe from the forces of evil.

On each of my dyings shed your light and your love.

Keep calling to me until that day comes,

when, with your saints, I may praise you forever. Amen


Lord Jesus, Bread of Life and Covenant of Love-

Nourish us with your body and Blood

Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament –

Pray for us.

Pray for Friends and Family   Leave a comment


Thank You for each and every day! You have blessed us here on earth.

Thank You for Your tender mercies.

Thank You for giving us friends and family to share joys and sorrows with. I ask You to bless my friends, relatives, brothers and sisters in Christ and those I care deeply for, who are reading this right now.

Where there is joy, give them continued joy.

Where there is pain or sorrow, give them your peace and mercy.

Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence.

Where there is need, fulfill their needs.

Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Thanksgiving   Leave a comment

O God, Source and Giver of all things,

You manifest Your infinite majesty, power and goodness

in the earth about us:

We give you honor and glory,

for the sun and the rain,

for the manifold of fruits of our fields,

for the increase or our harvest,

we thank You.

For the enrichment of our souls with Divine Grace,

we are grateful.

Supreme Lord of the Harvest,

graciously accept us and the fruits of our toil,

in union with Jesus, Your Son,

as atonement for our sins,

for the growth of Your Church,

for peace and love in our homes,

and for salvation for all.

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.

We prepare your way, Lord Jesus Christ!

Let us hold you in our hearts,

as did Mary, your mother.

Come, Emmanuel!

We prepare your way, Lord Jesus Christ!

Let us care for your children in the world

as Saint Joseph cared for you.

Come Emmanuel!

We prepare your way, Lord Jesus Christ!

Let us sing joyfully of your glory

as did your angels in Bethlehem.

Come, Emmanuel!

We prepare your way, Lord Jesus Christ!

May we kneel to adore you

as did the lowly shepherds.

Come, Emmanuel!

We prepare your way, Lord Jesus Christ!

You are the Morningstar,

who guided the magi, guiding us still.

Come, Emmanuel!

We prepare your way, O Christ child,

God’s Word in our human flesh,

through the power of the Holy Spirit

God among us, forever and ever.  Amen
