O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary I offer you my prayers, works, joys and sufferings of this day. In union with the Holy Sacrifice, of the Mass through out the world. I offer them for all the intentions of the Sacred Heart, the salvations of souls reparation for sins, in reunion of all Christians. I offer them for all the intentions of our bishops and of all the Apostles of prayer and in particular for those recommended by our Holy Father this month.
Grace Before Meals….Bless us oh Lord, in these thy gifts, which we are about to receive, from thy bounty, through Christ our Lord, Amen.
