PRAYER FOR FAMILIES

O Lord our Father I come to You on this day

To offer You all the couples of the Earth

That in love they might live.

Come visit their broken hearts,

Come heal their wounded hearts.

May your Son be their light,

And may the Holy Spirit be their unity

So that all may be one on Earth,

As You are in Heaven O Trinity!


O Jesus, Our Brother,

Place your pardon in our hearts,

May our union be an offering

in joy and abandon.

May your wisdom, day after day,

Guide our steps close to your cross.

May we one day have our turn to sing

Magnificat! Alleluia!


Holy Spirit, come visit

all our divided families.

Come to renew our hope

In a tomorrow full of confidence.

Reunite in the Heart of God

All separated spouses,

Renew their alliance,

And give them Your holiness!


O Mary, Our Mother,

We come to You on this day

To offer You all the families of the Earth,

Protect them in your love.

Virgin Mary, may our children

Receive life of the Holy Spirit.

May we, reunited in your heart,

Render glory to your Lord.

Magnificat! Alleluia!

PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

Come, Holy Spirit Creator,

Come from thy bright heavenly throne

Come take possession of our souls

And make them all thy own


Thou who are called the Paraclete,

Best Gift of God Above,

The Living Spring, the Living Fire,

Sweet Unction and True Love


Thou Who art sevenfold in thy grace,

Finger of God’s Right Hand;

His Promise, teaching little ones

To speak and understand.


O guide our minds with thy blest light,

With love our hearts inflame;

And with thy strength, which ne’er decays,

Confirm our mortal frame.


Far from us drive our deadly foe;

True peace unto us bring;

And from all perils lead us safe

Beneath thy sacred wing.


Through Thee may we the Father know,

Through Thee the Eternal Son,

And Thee the Spirit of Them both,

Thrice-Blessed Three in One.


All glory to the Father be,

With His co-equal Son;

The same to Thee, great Paraclete,

While endless ages run. Amen.

PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS

Lord Jesus, in the faith of the children of Myriam we pray:

Pour forth your love on all those who are consecrated in the

Priesthood, the religious life, the married life, and in apostolic work.


By your love, may all those who commit themselves to

Follow You carry your light, your peace, your tenderness,

And your mercy everywhere they go.

We pray You Lord Jesus, that by seeing them we desire

To meet You and that by listening to them we desire to

Love you.


Thank you Lord for all the new callings You multiply

Amongst your people,

Thank you for all the generosity and thirst for the absolute

That you place in the heart of all Your children.


Thank you for the renewal that You call forth in your Church

Which permits us to say with You:

“I thank Thee, Father, Lord of Heaven and earth,

that Thou hast hidden these things from the wise and

understanding and revealed them to the little ones”.


With you, Lord Jesus, and with Mary,

We say again today:

“Father, I am your child.

Here I am to do your will”.   Amen!  Alleluia!
