"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart."
Psalm 37:4


We hope that you will pray with us every day.

Whenever you pray, you are invisibly linked to others around the world. Your prayer makes a difference.

As the day ends, as the week ends, you become aware of the speed with which time is passing and the urgent necessity to make each day the best possible preparation for the life without end that awaits you.

Have you thought of a new way of living your ordinary life so that it becomes more focused, more God-oriented, more peaceful, more meritorious?

There is such a way. And we would be glad to tell you about it.

But first continue to pray with us and to ask the Lord what he wants you to do.

Jesus Master, Way and Truth and Life:

Have mercy on us.

Queen of the Apostles: Pray for us.

From all sin: Deliver us O Lord.

The Angelus

V. The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.

R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.

Pauline Offertory

Father, in union with all those who today celebrate the Eucharist, I wish to offer myself,

a small victim, with Jesus, the Victim.

---in atonement for error and scandal spread throughout the world, through the misuse

of the means of social communication;

---to appeal to Your mercy for those persons, who, deceived and seduced by the influence

of these instruments, stray from Your fatherly love;

---for the conversion of those persons, who, in the use of these instruments, reject the

teaching of Christ and His Church, and thus warp the minds, hearts, and undertakings of men

and women;

---that we may follow Him alone, whom You, Father, in Your boundless love, sent into

the world, saying: "This is My beloved Son, hear Him;"

---to acknowledge and to make known that Jesus alone, the Word Incarnate, is the perfect

Teacher, the trustworthy Way, Who leads to knowledge of You, Father, and to a partaking of

Your life;

---that there be, in the Church, an increase in the number of priests, religious and

lay persons who, consecrated as apostles of social communication, will make the message of

salvation resound throughout the world;

---that all those, who work within the framework of social communication, may grow in

holiness and wisdom and bear witness to an authentic Christian life;

---that the undertakings of Catholics, within the sphere of social communication, may

continually increase so that, by promoting more effectively genuine human and Christian values,

the voice of error and evil will be counteracted;

---that, well aware of our insufficiency and unworthiness, we may realize the need to

draw near the Font of Life, in all humility and trust, and to be nourished with Your Word,

Father, and with the Body of Christ, invoking light, love and mercy for all men and women.

Secret Of Success

Jesus Master, accept the pact we present to You, through the hands of Mary,

Queen of the Apostles, and of our Father, St. Paul.

We must correspond to Your sublime will, arrive at the degree of perfection and

heavenly glory to which You have destined us, and perform the apostolate of

social communication in a holy manner.

But we see that we are very weak, ignorant, incapable and inadequate in every way:

in spirit, in knowledge, in the apostolate and in poverty.

You, instead, are the Way and the Truth and the Life, the Resurrection, our One and

Supreme Good. We trust in You alone, Who said: "Whatever you ask the Father in My name,

you will receive it."

For our part, we promise and commit ourselves to seeking wholeheartedly, in all things,

in life and the apostolate, only and always, Your glory and peace to all peoples.

We trust that, on Your part, You will give us a good spirit, grace, knowledge, and

the means for doing good.

According to Your immense goodness and the needs of our special vocation, multiply the fruits

of our spiritual work, of our study, of our apostolate, and of our poverty.

We do not doubt You, but we fear our inconstancy and weakness.

Therefore, Good Master, through the intercession of Mary, our mother, extend to us

the mercy You used with the Apostle Paul, so that, faithful in imitating our Father,

here on earth, we may be his companions in the glory of heaven..Amen

Act Of Surrender To The Will Of God

My God, I do not know what will happen to me today.

I know only that nothing will happen to me that was not

foreseen by You and directed to my greater good from

all eternity. This is enough for me.

I adore Your eternal and unfathomable designs. I submit

to them, with all my heart, for love of You. I offer the sacrifice

of my whole being to You and join my sacrifice to that of Jesus,

my Divine Savior.

In His name and by His infinite merits, I ask You for patience

in my sufferings and perfect submission, so that everything You

want or permit to happen, will result in Your greater glory and

my sanctification.Amen.

To Spend The Day Well

Dear and sweet Mother Mary, keep your holy hand upon me;

guard my mind, my heart and my senses, that I may never commit sin.

Sanctify my thoughts, affections, words and actions, so that I may

please you and your Jesus, my God, and reach heaven with you.

Jesus and Mary, give me Your holy blessing:

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.Amen.



Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia.

for Christ, your Son and Son of God, has risen as He said, alleluia.

Pray to God for us, alleluia.

V. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia.

R. For the Lord has truly risen, alleluia.

Let us pray.

God of life,

you have given joy to the world by the resurrection of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Through the prayers of His mother, the Virgin Mary, bring us to the happiness of eternal life.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.Amen.

I adore you, my God, and I love you with all my heart.

I thank you for having created me, made me a Christian, and kept me this day.

Forgive me my failings and sins and accept whatever good I have done.

Take care of me while I sleep and deliver me from all danger.

May your grace be always with me and with all my dear ones.Amen.

(Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father, Hail Holy Queen, Angel of God.)

The examination of conscience; the Act of Contrition

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I give you my heart and my soul.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, assist me in the hour of my death.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, may I die and rest in peace with you.

Psalm 130

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord, Lord, hear my voice!

O let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleading.

If you, O Lord, should mark our guilt, Lord, who would survive?

But with you is found forgiveness; for this we revere you.

My soul is waiting for the Lord, I count on his word.

My soul is longing for the Lord more than watchman for daybreak.

(Let the watchman count on daybreak and Israel on the Lord.)

Because with the Lord there is mercy, and fullness of redemption,

Israel indeed he will redeem from all its iniquity.

Before retiring, the following chaplet is recited: Virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus, make us saints!

Three Hail Mary's
