O Jesus, merciful Saviour,
relying on Thy infinite goodness,
I hope to obtain through this holy communion
all the graces of which I stand in need
for my greater sanctification and eternal salvation.
Begging Thy pardon for all the transgressions of my past life,
I first of all beseech Thee
to give me the grace that I may never again fall into any mortal sin.
I would rather be dead than live a moment
without Thy grace and Thy love.
But Thou, O Lord, knowest how weak I am
and how prone to evil.
Do Thou strengthen me by Thy grace
that I may be faithful in doing Thy will.
Thou canst heal all the evils of my soul
since Thou art its true Physician,
who givest me Thy body and blood
in this Blessed Sacrament as a sovereign medicine for all my infirmities.
Dispel the darkness of ignorance
from my understanding by Thy heavenly light;
banish the corruption and malice of my will
by the fire of Thy divine love;
subdue in me all evilpassions
and help me especially to overcome my predominant fault;
stand by me in all temptations of the devil,
the world, and the flesh,
that I may not fall into their snares.
Increase my faith,
and grant that in my daily life
I may be guided by Thy example
and the maxims of Thy holy Gospel.
Teach me to be poor in spirit;
to place no value upon the world's transitory pleasures and honours;
to be meek and humble of heart
and in patience to possess my soul;
to love Thee more and more
and to walk always in Thy presence;
to be kind and generous to my neighbour;
to strive earnestly to advance every day in holiness and perfection.
May Thy holy will be accomplished in me.
Grant me, above all, the grace of final perseverance;
that I may become a saint.
O Mary, immaculate Mother of God!
All ye angels and saints of heaven!
Unite your prayers with mine
as you stand before the throne of Divine grace,
and, above all, pray that I may be united with you in loving,
praising and enjoying God for all eternity.
God of power and mercy, open our hearts in welcome. Remove the things that hinder us from receiving Christ with joy, so that we may share his wisdom and become one with him when he comes in glory, for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. continue reading
In the centuries old Catholic tradition, holy cards or prayer cards are small, devotional cards for the use of the faithful. Prayer cards have an endless amount of use and make wonderful gifts and keepsakes.
The UN has cut off food aid for an estimated 200,000 Christians in the Middle East. The only way these people will survive is through your generosity.
If you make a single donation now, you will feed a child 30 meals. Naturally, the more you give, the more people you help and save. As Christians we are called to be "Good Samaritans" to our neighbors. Right now, Christian children are fighting cold, fighting hunger, and fighting just to survive.
Knowing this, how can you pass by? Give generously.
