1) Daily Mass Readings
Click here to read and/or listen.
Today the prophet Hosea calls the people of Israel (and us!) to repent of our sins and trust in God.
2) Spiritual Communion Prayer
After you have read/listened to the readings, please quietly make the Spiritual Communion Offering.
Spiritual Communion Prayer
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.
After you offer your spiritual communion prayer, you can take a moment to:
1) adore God for His goodness, power, mercy;
2) repent for any sins;
3) thank God for all the good things He has done for you, and;
4) ask God for help with your daily life and for others.
3) Morning Offering
O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer you my prayers, works, joys and sufferings of this day in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world. I offer them for all the intentions of your Sacred Heart: the salvation of souls, the reparation for sin, and the reunion of all Christians. I offer them for the intentions of our associates and of all Apostles of Prayer, and in particular for those recommended by our Holy Father this month.
Pledge of Allegiance*
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
*This isn't a prayer, but we usually say the Pledge at school right after our morning offering ... so here it is!
4) Saint of the Day: St. Catherine of Genoa
St. Catherine of Genoa wanted to become a nun, but was rejected due to her young age. Instead, she married and, together with her husband, became a great carer of the poor. Sometimes the things we plan for ourselves don't work out, even if they seem like they are very good. God's will can surprise us, but is always better in the long run!

St. Catherine of Genoa, pray for us!
