O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers, works, joys and sufferings of this day for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in reparation for my sins, for the intentions of all my relatives and friends, and in particular for the intentions of the Holy Father.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
Prayers for advanced angel involvement in our lives.
"Jesus, allow my guardian angel to help me in many ways throughout the day. Give me the ability to constantly communicate freely with my angel. Let my angel work in union with the appropriate Holy Saints and Holy Souls to best aid me and my loved ones in all our needs and spiritual growth. Let my angel work in union with the angels of my 'loved ones' in order to assist and comfort them in their darkness. Allow their angel to guide their thoughts by my prayers for the Spirit's grace of clarity, wisdom and strength upon them. Allow them to think clearly without distractions or influence from the evil one. I ask this in Your Most Holy Name, Jesus Christ. Amen."
"God the Father and Holy Spirit. I humbly ask you to grant my 'Loved One' thy graces of clarity, wisdom & strength."
"Lord, I am not worthy to receive Your abundant graces, but only say the word and my 'Loved One(s)' shall be blessed."
In the simplest, most humble form:
(Say with heart felt trust as often as you can. The bible promises it will be granted to all those who ask.)
"God the Father, Holy Spirit;
clarity, wisdom, strength."
morning my Angel from God. Thank You for being my friend and
guardian. Remind me daily to rebuke my fear, doubt
and always guide my
thoughts for the greater
glory of God. Amen."
Angel of God,
my guardian dear,
To whom God's love
commits me here,
Ever this day, be at my side,
To light and guard,
Rule and guide.
All people have Guardian Angels, but we must ask our Angels for help before they can intervene.
Treat your angel like a trusted friend. Tell them your thoughts and your daily concerns. Ask them to help with all your important decisions. Your angle communicates to you through your thoughts. Ask Jesus to let you distinguish between heavenly thoughts and the deceptive thoughts seeded by the evil one.
"Jesus, help me to recognize when my Angel or the Spirit is guiding my thoughts.
Help me to distinguish and bind the deceptive thoughts of the evil one.
I ask this in your most Holy Name Jesus. Amen."

Act of Contrition
O my God, I am heartily sorry
for having offended Thee, and I
detest all my sins, because I dread
the loss of heaven, and the pains
of hell, but most of all because they
offend Thee my God, who are all
good and deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve with the help of
Thy grace, to confess my sins,
to do penance, and to amend my life.
Act of SpiritualMy Jesus, I believe that You are
present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I
desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already
there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated
Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from Christ's side, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within Thy wounds hide me.
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee.
From the malicious enemy defend me.
In the hour of my death call me.
And bid me come unto Thee.
That I may praise Thee
with Thy saints and with Thy angels,
forever and ever.

O Blessed Face of my kind Savior, by the tender love and piercing sorrow of Our Lady as she beheld You in Your cruel Passion, grant us to share in this intense sorrow and love so as to fulfill the holy will of God to the utmost of our ability.
Prayer to theO Lord Jesus Christ, in presenting ourselves before Thine adorable Face to ask of Thee the graces of which we stand most in need, we beseech Thee, above all, to grant us that interior disposition of never refusing at any time to do what Thou requires of us by Thy holy commandments and divine inspirations.
Prayer of St. Pius IX to the Holy Face
"O My Jesus, cast upon us a look of mercy; turn Thy Face towards each of us as Thou did to Veronica; not that we may see it with our bodily eyes, for this we do not deserve; but turn it towards our hearts, so that remembering Thee we may ever draw from this fountain the strength the vigor necessary to sustain the combats of life. Amen."
Mother of Jesus,
thee, O Lady
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

O most watchful Guardian of the Holy Family, defend the chosen children of Jesus Christ; O most loving father, ward off from us every contagion of error and corrupting influence;

power of darkness; and, as once you rescued the Child Jesus from deadly
peril, so now
