My Daily Offering
O Jesus, through the Immaculate
Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers, works, joys and sufferings of this day in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
throughout the world. I offer them for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart: the salvation of souls, reparation for sin,
the union of all Christians. I offer them for the intentions of our Bishops and all Apostles of Prayer, and in particular
for those recommended by our Holy Father this month.
A Prayer for Families
We bless your name O Lord for sending your own incarnate Son, to become part of a family, so that as he lived its life,
he would experience its worries and its joys. We ask you, Lord, to protect and watch over this family, so that in the strength
of your grace its members may enjoy prosperity, possess the priceless gift of your peace, and, as the Church alive in the
home, bear witness in this world to your glory. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
