Prayers - Parish Projects
Dear Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary create a new heart in this day, a heart committed to holiness, a heart preserved in faith and peace. I ask this in your Most Holy Name, Lord Jesus. Amen
"Dear children, I wish each day for you to renew your hearts in holiness through faith and peace. Such a heart will be steeped in love for his brethren and will bring many souls to Me by example. Therefore, my dear children, upon arising each morning, it is My desire you recite this prayer. It will bring many souls to realize their vocation in holiness...a vocation for each soul no matter his station in life."
Most Holy Spirit, I consecrate to You this day in time. Open my heart to Your promptings. Inspire me to do the Divine Will of God. Amen.
"When you begin the day in such a way, the Holy Spirit will be with you and guide you. You will not fear any consequence of the day as you will be under His protection."
Mary, Protectress of the Faith, shelter my faith in Your Immaculate Heart-Refuge of Holy Love. In the Refuge of Your Heart and united to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Your Son, protect my faith from all evil. Amen.
"I tell you that Satan will flee before the invocation, Mary, Refuge of Holy Love, pray for us. This title is in itself a spiritual Refuge. The more you will persevere in speaking this little ejaculatory prayer, the deeper I will take you into My Heart. Let it be forever on your lips."
Mary, my Mother, my Fortress- Refuge of Holy Love-sanctify this home through Holy Love. Open each heart that dwells herein to holiness. Lead us along the path of Holy Love. Be victorious over any evil, whether it be an unknown force within these walls, a seductive habit, or some voluntary attachment we have chosen ourselves. Make this home a sanctuary of Holy Love. Amen.
Our Lady comes as Refuge of Holy Love. She says: "Praise be Jesus, truly and ever present in the tabernacles of the world. My daughter, I have come, as I desire to come into every home, under this Image of Holy Love. Let it be your goal to have this Image accepted in every home and every heart. I will give you the prayer now that will strengthen and unite families and convict hearts. Dedicate your homes to Me, and I will vanquish evil therein."
O Mary, Protectress of Our Faith, hear our prayer and ask Your Beloved Son to receive our faith into His Sacred Hands. Ask Him to hide our faith in His Wounds and protect it from all evil. Amen.
For all those who devoutly recite Her prayer, Mary has obtained from Her Divine Son the following four promises and graces. All the lukewarm who devoutly recite My prayer shall become more fervent in their faith.
The sinner who recites this prayer shall be given the grace to see what hinders their faith.
All those who recite My prayer with a sincere intention will receive peace in all their trials.
Satan shall be rendered powerless when Mary, "The Protectress of the Faith," is invoked. Doubts and temptations will vanish before this Name for I shall come quickly to the aid of all who so invoke Me."
Sacred and United Hearts of Jesus and Mary, You are one in purpose as You desire the salvation, holiness, and sanctity of each soul. We consecrate our family to You seeking Your victory both in our hearts and in the world. We acknowledge the perfection of Your mercy in the past, the abundance of Your provision in the future, and the supreme sovereignty of the Father's Divine Will in this present moment. We desire to be part of Your triumphant reign beginning in this present moment through our 'yes' to Holy and Divine Love. We wish, with the help of Your grace, to live out this consecration through every future moment. Thus we will be united in triumph with You, dear United Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Amen.
"There are many graces I stand ready to give to each soul that are unknown to the world. These graces are never asked for - never petitioned - and therefore do not blossom in the world. But today I am giving you a Consecration to Our United Hearts specifically for families. This dedication of the family towards the victory of Our United Hearts is not just for some, but for all people - all nations. Many and particular graces will be given families who so consecrate themselves in this way. Family members who refuse to participate in this consecration will be left outside the circle of grace which surrounds the consecrated family members, but I will extend many graces toward their conversion that they would not otherwise have. When I speak of family, I speak of those related by blood or marriage. I have promised, My brothers and sisters, to be with you until the end of time as you now know it. Through this consecration My grace will surround you and uphold you, both in good times and in bad. Every difficulty will gain merit through your surrender to Divine Love. Your families will be united if they respond to the grace I offer. And you, my brothers and sisters, will share the victory of Our United Hearts, both on earth and in Heaven, when you respond to this grace."
Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit of God, I come before You as I have consecrated my body and soul to Divine Love. I ask Your assistance in living out this consecration in every present moment. Help me to surrender to every cross, and to recognize and respond to every precious grace You place in my life. Through my consecration to Divine Love, I beg Your assistance in annihilating my own will and living in Your Divine Will. Amen.
Recite this prayer with the consecration to Divine Love daily, and you will receive an angel by your side to assist you in faithfulness to the consecration.
To all those who will surrender to Divine Love through a true consecration, Jesus promises these spiritual benefits:
Fifteen (15) promises of Mary to those to pray the Rosary:
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home, and within my family. Amen
Jesus promised St. Gertrude that 1,000 souls would be released from Purgatory each time this prayer is recited. The petition for sinners and family members was added later.
