O Holy Mary, my Lady, into your blessed trust and safe keeping and into the dept hs of your

mercy, I commend my soul and body this day, every day of my life, and at the hour of my death. To you I entrust all my hopes and consolations, all my trials and miseries, my life and the end of my life. By your most holy interces sion and by your merits, may all my actions be directed and disposed according t o your will and the Will of your divine Son. Amen. Prayer for Proper Affections Toward God (written by Saint Vincent Ferrer) Good Jesus, let me be penetrated with love to the very marrow of my bones, with fear and respect toward Thee; let me burn with zeal for Thy honor, so that I may resent terribly all the outrages committed against Thee, especially those of wh ich I myself have been guilty or the occasion. Grant further, O my God, that I m ay adore and acknowledge Thee humbly as my Creator, and that, penetrated with gr atitude for all Thy benefits, I may never cease to render Thee thanks. Grant tha t I may bless Thee in all things, praise and glorify Thee with a heart full of j oy and gladness, and that, obeying Thee with docility in every respect, I may on e day, despite my ingratitude and unworthiness, be seated at Thy table together with Thy holy angels and apostles to enjoy ineffable delights. Amen. O Lord, give me the fire that you sent forth when coming on earth. Enable me to b e aflame with the ardor of charity, to glow with the splendor of obedience, and to grow ardent with love. Help me to be saved from destruction amid dangers, to escape all perils, and to hasten toward Your goodness. Grant me to come peaceful ly into Your presence, to be satiated forever by its manifestation, and to prais e You unceasingly for all eternity.

Prayer of Saint Ildephonsus of Toledo, Bishop The Abundance of the Sweetness of Thy Son I come to thee, only Virgin Mother of God, and fall prostrate before thee, who alone didst cooperate in the Incarnation of God. I humble myself before thee, who alone wert found to be the Mother of my Lord. I pray thee, who alone wert found to be the handmaid of thy Son: obtain that my sins be wiped away; command that I be cleansed of the wickedness of my deeds, and, that I may love the glory of thy virtue, reveal to me the abundance of the sweetness of thy Son.

Thou Art His Co-Worker in My Redemption Bestow upon me the gift of proclaiming the true faith of thy Son, and of defending it. Grant that I may cleave to God and to thee, that I may serve thy Son and thee, that I may be His bondsman and thine; His, because He is my Creator, and thine, because thou art the Mother of my Creator; His, because He is Lord of the angelic powers, and thine, because thou art the handmaid of the Lord of All; His, because He is God, and thine because thou art the Mother of God;

His, because He is my Redeemer, and thine because thou art His co-worker in my redemption. The Body by Which He Healed My Wounds That which He wrought for my redemption, verily He formed in thine own person. That He might be my Redeemer, He became thy Son. That He might be the price of my ransom, He became incarnate of thy flesh. The Body by which He healed my wounds, He took from thee so that He, in it, might be wounded. The mortal Body by which He took away my death, He took from thy mortality. The Body by which He brought my sins to nought, He received sinless from thee. This nature of mine that ahead of time, in Himself, He placed above the angels in the glory of His Father's right hand, He assumed -- humbling Himself -- out of thine own true body. I Am Thy Slave Therefore, I am thy slave, because Thy Son is my Master. Therefore thou art my Lady, because thou art the handmaid of my Lord. Therefore I am the slave of the handmaid of my Lord, because thou, my Lady, didst become the Mother of my Lord. Therefore I have become thy slave, because thou didst become the Mother of my Maker. By the Holy Spirit I pray thee, I pray thee, holy Virgin, may I, by the Spirit through Whom thou didst give birth to Jesus, have Jesus and hold Him. By that Spirit through Whom thou didst conceive this same Jesus in thy flesh, may my soul receive Jesus. Let the Spirit gift me with the knowledge of Jesus, this Spirit by Whom it was given Thee to bear Jesus and to give Him birth. Let the Spirit in Whom thou didst declare thyself the handmaid of the Lord, choosing that it should be done unto thee according to the Angel's word, grant me to proclaim the heights of Jesus with lowliness. To Love Jesus and to Fear Him In the Spirit thou didst adore Jesus as thy Lord and gaze upon Him as thy Son; in that same Spirit may I love Him. And may I fear this same Jesus, with that reverence by which He, truly being God, became subject to His parents. A prayer to Mary, Queen of Apostles (written by Saint Vincent Pallotti) Immaculate Mother of God, Queen of the Apostles, we know that God's commandment of love and our vocation to follow Jesus Christ impels us to cooperate in the mi

ssion of the Church. Realizing our own weakness, we entrust the renewal of our p ersonal lives and our apostolate to your intercession. We are confident that thr ough God's mercy and the infinite merits of Jesus Christ, you, who are our Mothe r, will obtain the strength of the Holy Spirit as you obtained it for the commun ity of the apostles gathered in the upper room. Therefore, relying on your mater nal intercession, we resolve from this moment to devote our talents, learning, m aterial resources, our health, sickness and trials, and every gift of nature and grace, for the greater glory of God and the salvation of all. We wish to carry on those activities which especially promote the Catholic apostolate for the rev ival of faith and love of the people of God and so bring all men and women into the faith of Jesus Christ. And if a time should come when we have nothing more t o offer serviceable to this end, we will never cease to pray that there will be one fold and one shepherd Jesus Christ. In this way, we hope to enjoy the result s of the apostolate of Jesus Christ for all eternity. Amen.

Marian Prayer of Saint Ildephonsus Virgin Mary, hear my prayer: through the Holy Spirit you became the Mother of Jesus; from the Holy Spirit may I too have Jesus. Through the Holy Spirit your flesh conceived Jesus; through the same Spirit may my soul receive Jesus. Through the Holy Spirit you were able to know Jesus, to possess Jesus, and to bring him into the world. Through the Holy Spirit may I too come to know your Jesus. Imbued with the Spirit, Mary, you could say: "I am the handmaid of the Lord, be it done unto me according to your word"; in the Holy Spirit, lowly as I am, let me proclaim the great truths about Jesus. In the Spirit you now adore Jesus as Lord and look on Him as Son; in the same spirit, Mary, let me love your Jesus Prayer of St. Bridget

We pray thee, O most clement Virgin Mary, Queen of the world and of angels, to obtain relief for those whom the fire of Purgatory tries, pardon for sinners, perseverance in good for the just, and also defend us weak brethren from menacing danger.
