Dearest Father,
We pray for our country especially on the National Day of Prayer. We ask for Your Graces for all Mothers this Mother’s Day. We invoke Your Blessings on our military personnel this Armed Forces Day and implore You take our fallen home with You this Memorial Day. We invite Your Blessings on all families especially on the International Day of Families. We thank Jesus for His advocacy on our behalf following His Ascension and in sending the Holy Spirit from that first Pentecost to us today. We glorify the Most Holy
Trinity as we strive for perfection. We ask all of this from our Lord Jesus as we honor the Blessed Virgin Mary, His Mother and Mother of the Church.


My 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 from You.

Compassionate and Loving Father,
In the face of confusion and concern impart to us the calm of your presence.
In You allow us to find hope and healing.
Be with those who serve the sick and give them Your caring hands.
Be with those who lead and give them Your Spirit of wisdom.
Be with those who have fallen ill and give them Your comforting heart.
Wrap your arms around our world and hold us in your love.
Allow us at this time of trial to then serve as instruments of that love to all we meet.
We ask this in Your Name.
