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, and in particular for the intentions of the Holy Father this month.

Daily Prayer & Reading for December 21, 2022

Bless my family, Lord. I cannot be with them every minute of the day, but my thoughts never stray from them. Watch over them while they commute from place to place, especially when roads are slick with ice, snow or rain. I pray that they remain happy and well in Your guiding light. Amen.

Audio of daily prayer read by Fr. Uribe OMI

Luke 1: 39-45

Mary set out in those days
and traveled to the hill country in haste
to a town of Judah,
where she entered the house of Zechariah
and greeted Elizabeth.
When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting,
the infant leaped in her womb,
and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit,
cried out in a loud voice and said,
“Most blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb.
And how does this happen to me,
that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears,
the infant in my womb leaped for joy.
Blessed are you who believed
that what was spoken to you by the Lord
would be fulfilled.”

Bendice a mi familia, Señor. No puedo estar con ellos cada minuto del día, pero mis pensamientos nunca se apartan de ellos. Cuida de ellos mientras se desplazan de un lugar a otro, especialmente cuando las carreteras están resbaladizas por el hielo, la nieve o la lluvia. Te ruego que permanezcan felices y bien en tu luz de guía. Amén.

Audio de la oración diaira leída por el p. Uribe, OMI 

Lc 1, 39-45

En aquellos días, María se encaminó presurosa a un pueblo de las montañas de Judea y, entrando en la casa de Zacarías, saludó a Isabel. En cuanto ésta oyó el saludo de María, la creatura saltó en su seno.
Entonces Isabel quedó llena del Espíritu Santo y, levantando la voz, exclamó: “¡Bendita tú entre las mujeres y bendito el fruto de tu vientre! ¿Quién soy yo, para que la madre de mi Señor venga a verme? Apenas llegó tu saludo a mis oídos, el niño saltó de gozo en mi seno. Dichosa tú, que has creído, porque se cumplirá cuanto te fue anunciado de parte del Señor”.
