St. Teresa of Avila

Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila

O God, have pity on so many perishing souls; stay the course of so many evils which afflict Christendom; and, without further delay, cause Thy light to shine in the midst of this darkness!

Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila

Lord, grant that I may always allow myself to be guided by you, always follow your plans, and perfectly accomplish your holy will. Grant that in all things, great and small, today and all the days of my life, I may do whatever you may require of me. Help me to respond to the slightest prompting of your grace, so that I may be your trustworthy instrument, for your honor. May your will be done in time and eternity - by me, in me, and through me. Amen.

St. Therese of Lisieux

Morning Prayer of St. Therese of Lisieux

O my God! I offer you all my actions of this day for the intentions and glory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I desire to sanctify every beat of my heart, by uniting them to its infinite merits, and I wish to make reparation for my sins by casting them into the furnace of its merciful love. O my God! I ask you for myself and for those whom I hold dear the grace to fulfill perfectly your holy will, to accept for love of you the joys and sorrows of this passing life, so that we one day may be united in heaven for all eternity. Amen.

Prayer of St. Therese of Lisieux

O Jesus, who in your bitter Passion became 'the reproach of men and the Man of Sorrows,' I venerate your sacred countenance in which shone the beauty and the sweetness of the Divinity, now become for my sake like the face of a 'leper'! But in those disfigured features I recognize your infinite Love, and I long to love you and to make you loved by all men. The tears that fall so abundantly from your eyes appear to me as precious pearls that I love to gather, and so purchase with their infinite value the souls of poor sinners. O Jesus, whose face is the only beauty that ravishes my heart, I am content not to see here below the tenderness of your gaze, not to experience the ineffable kiss of your mouth, but I beseech you to imprint in me your divine likeness, and inflame me with your Love so that it may consume me quickly and I may soon behold your glorious face in heaven. Amen.

St. Thomas Aquinas

Adoro Te

English

Latin 

(Why Latin?)

Devoutly I adore thee, O my Lord, Who art concealed in figures at the board; To thee my heart bows down in voiceless faith; I see thee not, but I believe thy word. Sight, touch and taste are easily deceived; Thy word alone can safely be believed; I grant, O Son of God, whate'er to me Thou sayest; in thee have I all faith achieved. Upon the cross was thy divinity Concealed, nor here thy human form we see, Yet I, in faith confessing, seek thee, Lord, Like the repentant thief upon the tree. I do not ask, as Thomas did, dear Lord, To see thy wounds; sufficient is thy word; O, fill my soul with firmer faith, that still in hope and love with thee it may accord. O sweet memorial of the Saviour's death, True bread that brings to man the living breath, Grant that my soul thy holy law may know, And live with thee in everlasting faith. A pitying pelican, dear Jesus, be; Save by the blood thou sheddest on the tree, My starving soul - thy precious blood, whereof One drop from every crime the world can free. Jesus, whom here in figures I behold, I hunger for the time to see unrolled the veil from thy sweet features; let me be blest with the vision in thy halls of gold. Amen.  

Adoro te devote latens Dietas, Quae sub his figuris vere latitas: Tibi se cor meum totum subjicit, Quia te contemplans totum deficit. Visus, gustus, tactus in te fallitur, Sed auditu solo tuto creditur: Credo quidquid dixit Dei Filius: Nil hoc Veritatis verbo verius. In cruce latebat sola Deitas, At hic latet simul et humanitas: Ambo tamen credens, atque confitens, Peto quod petivit latro poenitens. Plagas, sicut Thomas, non intueor, Deum tamen meum te confiteor: Fac me tibi semper magis credere In te spem habere, te diligere. O memoriale mortis Domini, Panis vivus vitam praestans homini: Praesta meae menti de te vivere, Et te illi semper dulce sapere. Pie Pellicane, Jesu Domine, Me immundum munda tuo sanguine, Cujus una stilla salvum facere Totum mundum quit ab omni scelere. Jesu, quem velatum nunc aspicio, Oro fiat illud quod tam sitio: Ut te revelata cernens facie, Visu sim beatus tuae gloriae. Amen.

Holy Cross Prayer

Cross, my certain salvation, Cross, whom I ever adore, Cross of the Lord be with me, Cross, my refuge, forever more.

Ineffable Creator

Ineffable Creator, Who out of the treasures of Thy wisdom hast appointed three hierarchies of Angels and set them in admirable order high above the heavens and hast disposed the divers portions of the universe in such marvelous array, Thou Who art called the True Source of Light and super-eminent Principle of Wisdom, be pleased to cast a beam of Thy radiance upon the darkness of my mind and dispel from me the double darkness of sin and ignorance in which I have been born. Thou Who makest eloquent the tongues of little children, fashion my words and pour upon my lips the grace of Thy benediction. Grant me penetration to understand, capacity to retain, method and facility in study, subtlety in interpretation and abundant grace of expression. Order the beginning, direct the progress and perfect the achievement of my work, Thou who art true God and Man and livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen.

Prayer After Holy Communion

I give Thee thanks, O holy Lord, Father Almighty, eternal God, Who hast vouchsafed, not for any merits of mine, but solely out of the condescension of Thy mercy, to satisfy me, a sinner, Thine unworthy servant, with the precious Body and Blood of Thy Son our Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that this holy Communion be not to me a condemnation unto punishment, but a saving plea unto forgiveness. May it be unto me the armor of faith and the shield of good will. May it be the emptying out of my vices, the extinction of all concupiscence and lust, the increase of charity and patience, of humility and obedience, and of all virtues; a strong defense against the snares of all enemies, visible and invisible; the perfect quieting of all my evil impulses, both fleshly and ghostly; a firm cleaving unto Thee, the one true God; and a pledge of a blessed destiny. And I beseech Thee, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to bring me, a sinner, to that ineffable banquet, where Thou, with Thy Son and the Holy Ghost, art to Thy saints true light, fullness of content, eternal joy, gladness without alloy and perfect bliss. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer in Preparation for Holy Communion

Almighty and eternal God, behold, I approach the Sacrament of Thine only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. I approach as one who is sick to the physician of life, as one unclean to the fountain of mercy, as one blind to the light of eternal brightness, as one poor and needy to the Lord of heaven and earth. Therefore I beseech Thee, of Thine infinite goodness, to heal my sickness, to wash away my filth, to enlighten my blindness, to enrich my poverty, and to clothe my nakedness, that I may receive the Bread of Angels, the King of kings, and Lord of lords with such reverence and humility, with such contrition and devotion, with such purity and faith, with such purpose and intention, as may conduce to the salvation of my soul. Grant, I beseech Thee, that I may receive not only the Sacrament of the Body and Blood of our Lord, but also the fruit and virtue of this Sacrament. O most indulgent God, grant me so to receive the Body of Thine Only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, which He took of the Virgin Mary, that I may be found worthy to be incorporated with His mystical body and numbered among His members. O most loving Father, grant that I may one day contemplate forever, face to face, Thy beloved Son, whom now on my pilgrimage I am about to receive under the sacramental veils; Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen.

Prayer of Praise

I praise you, I glorify you, I bless you, O God, for the immense blessings you have given me, notwithstanding my unworthiness. I bless you clemency in waiting for me, your sweetness in correcting instead of destroying me, your tenderness in calling me, your benignity in receiving me, your mercy in pardoning me, your goodness in filling me with favors, your patience in forgetting my injuries, your humility in consoling me, your compassion in protecting me, your eternity in preserving me, and your truth in rewarding me. How shall I speak, my God, of your ineffable goodness? For when a fugitive, you call me back; returning, you receive me; stumbling, you bear me up; despairing, you fill me with joy; negligent, you spur me on; fighting, you arm me; conquering, you crown me, a sinner. You do not spurn me after repentance, and you remember not my offenses. You deliver me from many dangers, soften my heart to penance, make me fearful by punishments, allure me by rewards, chastise me by scourges, and guard me by the ministry of angels. You give me earthly goods, while you reserve for me those that are eternal. You encourage me by your dignity of creation, you draw me to yourself by the clemency of redemption, and you promise me the rewards of sanctification. I am unable to offer you fitting praises for all these benefits. But I return thanks to your Majesty for the abundance of your infinite goodness, and I beseech you that you will ever increase grace in me, that after increasing it, you will preserve it, and after preserving it, you will reward it. Amen.

Prayer of St. Thomas Aquinas

Grant to me, O merciful God, that I might ardently love, prudently ponder, rightly acknowledge, and perfectly fulfill all that is pleasing to you for the praise and glory of your Name.

Prayer of St. Thomas Aquinas

Oversee, O my God, my life, that I may do what you ask of me; allow me to see and permit me to do whatever is fitting and profitable to my soul. Lead me not, O Lord my God, into excessive wealth or want, lest I put my trust in riches, or despair in misery. Let me take no joy or sorrow, save in what would lead me to you or from you. Let me delight only in pleasing you and fear only displeasing you. O Lord, let all passing things seem worthless to me and let everything eternal become my treasure. May I despise any joy apart from you and seek nothing that is without you. Make carrying the burdens for you my relaxation, O Lord, and rest without you itself a burden.

St. Thomas More

Prayer for Enemies

Almighty God, have mercy on (N.), and on all that bear me evil will, and would do me harm, and their faults and mine together by such easy, tender, merciful means as Thine infinite wisdom best can devise, vouchsafe to amend and redress and make us saved souls in heaven together, where we may ever live and love together with Thee and Thy blessed saints, O glorious Trinity, for the bitter passion of our sweet Savior Christ. Amen.

Prayer of St. Thomas More

O Lord, give us a mind that is humble, quiet, peaceable, patient, and charitable. And a taste of Your Holy Spirit in all our thoughts, words and deeds. O Lord, give us a lively faith, a firm hope, a fervent charity, a love of You. Take from us all lukewarmness in meditation and dullness in prayer. Give us fervor and delight in thinking of You, Your grace, and Your tender compassion toward us. Give us, good Lord, the grace to work for the things we pray for. Amen.
