In the name of the Father…!
SHORT MORNING OFFERINGS.
My loving Jesus, out of the grateful love I bear Thee, and to make reparation for my unfaithfulness to grace, I give Thee my heart, and I consecrate myself wholly to Thee; and with Thy help I purpose never to sin again.
Dear Lord, I could never vie with Thee in generosity, but I love Thee; deign to accept my poor heart, and though it is worth nothing, yet it may become something by Thy grace. Since it loves Thee, do Thou make it good and take it into Thy custody.
I will extol Thee, O God, my King, and I will bless Thy Name forever and ever.
Take O Lord, all my liberty, receive my memory, my understanding and my whole will. All that I am, all that I have, Thou hast given me, and I restore it all to Thee, to be disposed of according to Thy good pleasure. Give me only Thy love and Thy grace; with these I am rich enough, and I desire nothing more.
PRAYER TO MY GUARDIAN ANGEL.
Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom His love commits me here, ever this DAY be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.
May Almighty God bless and sanctify your day, Father, Son & Holy Spirit, Amen.
Good morning and safe trip to all travelers today, healing to the sick anf success to those sitting for exams and interviews.
