Daily Prayer 7/11

Memorial of Saint Benedict, abbot

Morning Offering:

Mary Immaculate, Mother of compassion, guide us in our care of the sick. Grant us hearts full of empathy, hands ready to comfort and words infused with Your love. May we be channels of Your healing grace, bringing solace to the suffering, strength to the weary, and hope to the despairing. Through Your intercession, O Mother, may every touch be Your touch, every word Your word, and every act a reflection of Your tender care. In union with You, may we serve with humility, knowing that in comforting the afflicted, we serve Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen


Daily Prayer:

Holy St. Benedict, abbot and father of Western monasticism, you heeded Christ’s call to proclaim the Kingdom of heaven through your devoted service to God and His people. Like the apostles, you embraced a life of poverty and simplicity, trusting in God’s providence alone. Through your intercession, inspire us to follow Christ wholeheartedly, serving others selflessly and spreading His love and mercy to all. May we imitate your holy example, St. Benedict, in living lives of humility, prayer, and charity. Amen
