Guardian Angel from
Heaven so bright, Watching beside me to lead me aright,
Fold thy wings round me,
and guard me with love,
Softly sing songs to
me of heaven above.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary
That never was it known that anyone who fled to Thy protection,
Implored Thy help or sought Thy intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence I fly unto Thee,
O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother;
To Thee do I come, before Thee I kneel sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word incarnate, despise not my petitions,
But in Thy clemency hear and answer me.
The Lord is my Shepherd
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures,
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of
righteousness for His Name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil for Thou art with me;
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me…
Surely goodness and mercy
Will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever
Our Lady of Knock
I come to Thee, my Mother, to lay before Thy feet,
My fears, my hopes, my longings, my bitter hours and sweet.
O take them Mother Mary, and place them by God’s throne,
Your hands will give them value, they’re worthless on their own.
As I kneel before you, speak to your Son for me,
Though poor and small my offering, I know ’tis dear to thee.
For you your Son at Cana, changed water into wine,
The needs of bride and bridegroom, were small compared to mine.
And so, my Mother Mary, I lay before Thy feet,
My fears, my hopes, my longings, my bitter hours and sweat.
Mother of Mercy
Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
Hail our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry,
poor banished children of Eve, To thee do we send up our sighs,
Mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most
gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us.
And after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary,
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine
upon her and may her soul and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace.
Come Holy Spirit
Come Holy Spirit, give light to my mind,
purify my heart, strengthen my will and guide my steps.
All I ask is that you will remember me at Mass and Holy Communion.
O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
Hail, Holy Queen
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
our Life, our Sweetness, and our Hope.
To Thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.
To Thee do we send up our sighs mourning
and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious Advocate,
Thine Eyes of Mercy toward us, and after this
our exile show us the Blessed Fruit of thy Womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
Pray for us O Holy Mother of God
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Do not stand at my Grave and Weep
Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond’s glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.
Padre Pio Prayer
O Jesus, full of grace and charity,
victim for sinners, so impelled by love
for us that you willed to die on the
cross, I humbly beseech you to glorify
in heaven and on earth the Servant of
God, Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, who
generously participated in Your
sufferings, who loved Thee so much
and laboured so faithfully for the
glory of Your heavenly Father and for
the good of souls. With confidence, I
beseech Thee to grant me, through his
intercession, the grace of … which I ardently desire.
Glory be to the Father… (Three times.)
Prayer to St.Anthony
O gentle St. Anthony, by your holy and apostolic life, you led countless souls to the love of our Divine Lord.
I implore you, obtain for me and my loved ones His guidance, you who have the power to lead straying sheep back to the fold of Christ,
and to find articles that are lost. On earth your heart was filled with compassion for those in distress or sorrow. Please bring my request before the Child Jesus,
Who loved to rest in your arms, and I believe that you will help me to remain always close to our Divine Lord.
O miraculous Wonder Worker, in this hour of need obtain
what I ask of you.
His Weary Hours and Days
His weary hours and days of pain,
His troubled nights are past.
In our hearts we know
He has found sweet rest at last.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory.
for ever and ever.
