Daily Prayer 1/17

Memorial of Saint Anthony, Abbot

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:

You healed the crippled man’s right arm on the Sabbath, O Lord, and enabled him to return to his work. You brought the Abbot Saint Anthony to serve You by a life in the desert of fasting, prayer, endurance, dedication and a focus on things above. Grant through his intercession that denying ourselves, we may always love You above all things and work to serve You. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen
