Let's Pray

Act of Self Dedication

Take O Lord, and receive my entire liberty, my memory, my understanding
and my whole will.
All that I am and all that I possess You have given me.
I surrender it all to You to be disposed of according to Your will.
Give me only Your love and Your grace,
with these I will be rich enough, and will desire nothing more.

Prayer to Child's Guardian Angel

O Angels of God, from heaven so bright,
watching beside my children to lead them aright.
Fold your wings round them, and guard them with love.
Softly sing songs to them of heaven above.

Act of Contrition

O my God, I am sorry and beg pardon for all my sins,
and detest them above all things, because they deserve
They dreadful punishments,
because they have crucified my loving Saviour Jesus Christ and,
most of all, because they offend Thine infinite goodness,
and I firmly resolve,
by the help of Thy grace, never to offend Thee again,
and carefully to avoid the occasions of sin.

Act of Love

O my God, I love Thee with my whole heart and above all things,
because Thou art infinitely good and perfect;
and I love my neighbour as myself for love of Thee.
Grant that I may love Thee more and more in this life,
and in the next for all eternity.

Act of Hope

O my God, relying on Thy promises, I hope that,
through the infinite merits of Jesus Christ,
Thou wilt grant me pardon of my sins,
and the graces necessary to serve Thee in this life
and to obtain eternal happiness in the next.
