Daily Prayer 5/14

Feast of Saint Matthias, Apostle

Morning Offering:

O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers, works,
joys, and sufferings of this day for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart, in
union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, for the
salvation of souls, the reparation of sins, the reunion of all Christians. In
particular, we offer up the intentions of the Holy Father this month for the
formation of religious and seminarians. We pray that religious women and
men, and seminarians, grow in their own vocations through their human,
pastoral, spiritual and community formation, leading them to be credible
witnesses to the gospel. Amen

Daily Prayer:

O glorious St. Matthias, you were selected by the twofold sign of the
uprightness of your life and the call of the Holy Spirit. Obtain for us the grace to
practice the same uprightness of life and to be called by that same Spirit to
wholehearted service of the Church. Dear Jesus, on this feast of St. Matthias,
help us to remain in Your love, each and every day, in the midst of the things
You ask of us, in the ways You ask us to witness Your own merciful love for
others. We ask this with faith in the power of Your Spirit among us. Amen
