1) Daily Mass Readings
Click here to read and/or listen.
Today's readings are beautiful. Azariah's prayer is prayed while he is standing IN A FIRE, into which he has been thrown with his friends for refusing to worship anyone other than God. In the Gospel, Jesus tells us about forgiveness and how often we must forgive our brothers and sisters.
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. Patrick
Click here to read or listen to the life of St. Patrick.
St. Patrick was a brave man who spent his life bringing Christ to others in the the country of Ireland. We don't know which country he came from because all of his glory and greatness comes from the good things he did in the country he went to: Ireland!
St. Patrick, pray for us!
