Saint Valentine

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Jesus and Mother Mary

Bless us, Mary Maiden mild, 
bless us too, her tender Child. 

O Child Jesus, I turn to You through Your holy Mother,
I confidently ask You to assist me in my necessity
by Your Divine Power and Mercy.
I love You, O Jesus, with my whole heart and soul.

O Mary, Mother of grace and Mother of mercy, do thou protect us from our 
enemy, and receive us at the hour of our death. 

Blessed art thou, O Virgin Mary, by the Lord God most high, above all women 
upon the earth. 

Most high Queen of the universe, Mary ever Virgin, make intercession for our 
peace and salvation, thou who didst bear Christ the Lord, the Saviour of all mankind. 

Draw us after thee, holy Mother. 

Pray for us, O holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Holy Mary, Virgin Mother of God, intercede for me.

My King and My God

Christ Jesus, I acknowledge You King of the universe.
All that has been created has been made for You.
Make full use of Your rights over me.

I renew the promises I made in Baptism,
when I renounced Satan and all his pomps and works,
and I promise to live a good Christian life
and to do all in my power
to procure the triumph of the rights of God
and Your Church.

Divine Heart of Jesus,
I offer you my efforts
in order to obtain that all hearts
may acknowledge your Sacred Royalty,
and that thus the Kingdom of Your peace
may be established throughout the universe.

Saints Peter and Paul

Prayer to Sts. Peter and Paul for the Holy Catholic Church

Defend, O Lord, thy servants, we beseech thee, from all dangers both of body and soul; and, by the intercession of the blessed and glorious Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, of blessed N., and of all thy saints, mercifully grant us the blessings of peace and safety ; that all adversities and errors being removed, thy Church may freely and securely serve thee; through Christ Our Lord.

Saint Catherine Laboure

Whenever I go to the chapel, 
I put myself in the presence of our good Lord, and I say to him
"Lord, I am here.
Tell me what you would have me do."

If he gives me some task, 
I am content and I thank him.

If he gives me nothing,
I still thank him
since I do not deserve to receive anything more than that.

And then, I tell God
everything that is in my heart.
I tell him about my pains and my joys,
and then I listen.

If you listen, God will also speak to you,
for with the good Lord, you have to both speak and listen.

God always speaks to you
when you approach him plainly and simply.

Saint Catherine

Mary, Comforter of the Afflicted

O Immaculate Mary, Dear Mother, Consoler, I take refuge in your most lovable Heart with all the trust of which I am capable. You shall be dearest object of my love and my veneration. From you, the dispenser of heavenly treasures, I shall always seek peace in my troubles, light in my doubts, defense in my dangers, help in my needs .
Be therefore my refuge my strength, my consolation O Mary Consoler. At the hour of my death, graciously receive the last beats of my heart, and obtain for me a place in that heavenly country, where as one, all hearts shall praise forever the adorable Heart of Jesus, with your most lovable Heart, O Mary, my Mother, Consoler of the Afflicted, pray for us, who have recourse to you.

How many blessings, O Little Child has Your almighty right hand
 poured out on those who honor You and call upon You. 
Bless me also, O Child Jesus, my soul, my body and my interests. 
Bless and help me in my necessities, and grant me what I now desire. 
Listen with compassion to my prayers and 
I will bless Your Holy Name everyday.

The Baptism at the Jordan

"After Jesus was baptized, he came up from the water and behold, the Heaven were opened for him and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to Him.  And a voice came from Heaven saying "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased."

Matthew .3:16-17
