Daily Prayer 1/1

Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God

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, that the Holy Spirit may help us to recognize the gift of different charisms within the Christian community and to discover the richness of different traditions and rituals in the Catholic Church. Amen

Daily Prayer:

Father in heaven, we proclaim the Virgin Mary to be the Mother of Christ and the Mother of the Church. On this first day of the new year, Lord, we ask Your blessings through the intercession of Mary, the mother of God. Let Mary’s humility and courage be our inspiration as we make our plans for this year. May the example of her strength and fidelity sustain our faith, so that we can face whatever this year may hold for us with loving devotion to You. Amen
