Daily Prayer 1/5

Memorial of Saint John Neumann, Bishop

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:

Saint John Neumann, you knew your calling to the priesthood was genuine and you stopped at nothing to be ordained. I pray through your intercession that I might also be confident in my passion for the Lord.

You walked with the poor, visited with the sick and preached to anyone who crossed your path. I pray that I, too, follow your example of putting others’ needs before my own.

You were a founder of the Catholic school system in the United States. I pray that you watch over our Catholic schools today so that the children who attend them can gain a solid foundation in their love for the Lord. Amen
