Daily Prayer 1/18

Thursday of the Second Week in Ordinary Time

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:

Heavenly Father, You sent Your Son to show us what service to others is all about: to cure the sick, feed the hungry, and lift up the oppressed. It is so hard, Lord, to watch anyone suffer. Christian service enables others to live more humanly whether it is through a word of sympathy or counsel, or by an action like clothing the naked or visiting the sick or imprisoned. Help us as true servants of Christ to make the world more human. Amen
