PRAYER TO ST MARK THE EVANGELIST

O God, who raised up Saint Mark, your Evangelist,
and endowed him with the grace to preach the Gospel,
grant, we pray,
that we may so profit from his teaching
as to follow faithfully in the footsteps of Christ.
Who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

PRAYER FOR THE THIRD WEEK AFTER EASTER

“O GOD, YOU SHED THE LIGHT OF TRUTH ON THOSE WHO STRAY”

O God, you shed the light of truth on those who stray, that they may return to the way of righteousness; may all who call themselves Christians, reject what is opposed to that name, and eagerly seek out whatever is in keeping with it.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.

DIVINE MERCY PRAYER

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is love and mercy itself. Amen.

A SHORT EASTER PRAYER

It is only right,
with all the powers of our heart and mind,
to praise You, Father
and Your Only-begotten Son,
Our Lord Jesus Christ:

Dear Father, by Your wondrous
Condescension of loving-kindness towards us,
Your servants, You gave up Your Son.

Dear Jesus, You paid the debt of Adam
for us to the Eternal Father by
Your Blood poured
forth in loving-kindness.

You cleared away the darkness of sin
by Your magnificent and radiant Resurrection.
You broke the bonds of death
and rose from the grave as a Conqueror.
You reconciled heaven and earth.

Our life had no hope of eternal happiness
before You redeemed us.
Your Resurrection has washed away our sins,
restored our innocence and brought us joy.

How inestimable is the tenderness
of Your love!
Amen.
(St Gregory the Great)

PRAYER FOR MAUNDY THURSDAY

PRAYER FOR HOLY THURSDAY (MAUNDY THURSDAY):

PRAYER TO APPRECIATE THE HOLY MASS

O Lord Jesus,
in order that the merits of Your sacrifice
on the Cross
might be applied to every soul of all time,
You willed that it should be renewed
upon the altar.
At the Last Supper, You said:
“Do this in remembrance of Me.”
By these words
You gave Your Apostles and their successors
the power to consecrate
and the command to do what You Yourself did.
I believe that the Mass is
both a sacrifice and a memorial –
reenacting Your Passion, Death and Resurrection.
Help me to realize that the Mass
is the greatest gift of God to us
and our greatest gift to God.
At every Mass I attend
grant me the grace
to participate fully, actively and consciously
so as to give the greatest glory to God
and achieve the highest benefits for myself,
my relatives, friends and benefactors
as well as all humankind.
Amen.
