Eternal Father, we offer you the Precious Blood
poured out on the cross and offered daily on the altar:
For the glory
of your name,
for the coming of your kingdom
and for the salvation
For the propagation of faith,
for Pope N., for bishops,
priests, and religious
and for the sanctification of all the people of God.
For the conversion
for the loving acceptance
of your Word,
and for the union of all Christians.
For civil authorities,
for the strengthening of public morals,
and for peace and justice
among all nations.
For the santification of our work and suffering,
for the poor, sick and afflicted,
and for all who rely on our prayers.
For our own spiritual and temporal needs,
for those of our relatives, benefactors,
and also for those of our enemies.
For those who are to die this day,
for the souls in purgatory,
and for our final union with Christ

By fast her sinless frame is weak;
Her livid flesh the scourges streak.
In pity for her Savior's woes,
Her days and even nights are closed. ... continue reading
