Separated from You let me never be.

From the malignant enemy, defend me.

At the hour of death, call me.

And close to You bid me.

That with Your saints I may be

Praising You, forever and ever. Amen. 

The Morning Prayer

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, reparation for sin, the reunion of all Christians. I offer them for the intentions of our bishops and of all the apostles of prayer, and in particular for those recommended by our Holy Father this month. Amen. 

Prayer before Work

O God of the poor and the humble, who was born in a stable and worked in a carpenter's shop, look down in pity on the workers of this world. Give us work that we may keep our families in comfort and live without fear. Teach us to be content with our lot and never let us be tempted with dishonesty. When it seems necessary to fight against injustice, O God of strength, send Your Holy Spirit upon us that we may know what is right and have strength to do it. Protect us from violence and give us peace. Good St. Joseph, friend of the workman, pray for us. Amen. 

A Morning Prayer

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Blessed be the holy and undivided Trinity. Now and forever. Amen.

O almighty and eternal God, in union with all Your elect in heaven and on earth I adore You. I praise and thank You for the gifts of nature and grace which I have received from your infinite goodness. I thank You principally for having created me to Your image and likeness and preserved me to this day; for having given Your only begotten son to suffer for me on the cross and to wash away my sins in his most precious blood. I thank You for having called me to the faith of the holy, catholic and apostolic church; for having so often pardoned my sins; for having watched over me this past night and preserved me from sudden death; and from all other evils which might have befallen me, had I not been protected by You merciful and watchful providence.

O Lord, in return for all your mercies I wish I could give you a sufficient offering of gratitude and love. But You know that of myself I am nothing, have nothing and can do nothing worthy of you. Yet, remembering that I come to Your majesty through Christ my Savior. I humbly offer you in union with Him and through His sacred heart whatever I possess: my body, my senses and all the powers of my soul. I promise, by Your divine grace, not to think, say or do anything unworthy of one called to be a member of Your family.

Help me, O Lord, to curb my evil inclinations and so guide and sustain me in all things that every thought, word and action of mine may be used for Your greater glory, the sanctification of my soul and for the good those around me. Amen. 

Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You are in the Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I long for You in my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though You were already come, I embrace You and unite myself entirely to You; never permit me to be separated from You. Amen. 

Fatima Morning Offering

O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers, works, joys and sufferings, all that this day may bring, be they good or bad; for the love of God, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Amen.
