O Holy Father,
I offer you all the Masses celebrated
or to be celebrated throughout the whole Church this day,
so that through the Blood of Jesus
and the intercession
of the Blessed Virgin Mary
laden with sorrows beneath the Cross,
You may deign to grant to the just
the great gift of perseverance,
to sinners the grace
of a perfect conversion,
and to all the faithful,
and most of all me and my family,
at the last hour of life,
of receiving the Holy Viaticum,
of being anointed with the holy oil,
and of dying a death precious in your sight.
Lord, all hearts are in Your hands.
You can bend as You will
the most stubborn
and soften the most obdurate.
Do that honour
this day to the Precious Blood,
the merits, the sacred Wounds, the holy Name,
and the loving Heart of Your beloved Son
by granting my requests.
