“O Eternal and ever-blessed Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with all the angels and saints, I adore You. From the bottom of my heart, I thank You for all the favors and benefits You have bestowed upon me, but especially for having preserved me during the night, and for giving me this day to serve You. I wish to live only for You, for Your greater honor and glory, and for the salvation of souls. O good God, preserve me this day from all sin and all occasion of sin. Amen.”
Hope in Jesus
“My Jesus, I hope in You because You are infinitely good, almighty, and faithful to Your promises. Through Your mercy, through Your passion and death, I hope to obtain the pardon of my sins, the grace of final perseverance, and a happy eternity. Amen.”
For Our Children
“Lord, help our children to know the road You have chosen for them: may they give You glory and attain salvation. Sustain them with Your strength, and let them not be satisfied with easy goals. Enlighten us, their parents, that we may help them to recognize their calling in life and respond to it generously. May we put no obstacle in the way of Your inner guidance. Amen.” John Paul II
A Prayer of Thanksgiving After Mass
“I give You thanks, O Lord, Father almighty, eternal God. For even though I am a sinner, Your unprofitable servant, You’ve satisfied me with the precious Body and Blood of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ- not because of my worth, but in the kindness of Your mercy.
I pray that this Holy Communion will not bring me condemnation and punishment. Instead, let it be an effective plea for my forgiveness and salvation.”
St. Thomas Aquinas
Thanksgiving for the Church
“Jesus, Divine Master, I bless and thank Your most gentle Heart for the great gift of the Church. She is the Mother who instructs us in the truth, guides us on the way to heaven, and communicates supernatural life to us. She continues Your own saving mission here on earth, as Your Mystical Body. She is the ark of salvation. She is infallible, indefectable, Catholic. Grant me the grace to love the Church as You loved her and sanctified her in Your Blood. May the world know her, may all sheep enter her fold, may everyone humbly cooperate in Your kingdom. Amen.”
