Evening Prayers

MERCIFUL FATHER, from Whom all goodness comes, we give You thanks for all the favors You have given us. Forgive our faults and ingratitude, and watch over us with Fatherly care.

JESUS, Savior of all, You show us in Your Heart Your infinite love and Priestly sorrows. Grant us the grace to contemplate them with a thankful love, share them with You, and thus offer You consolation. May we obtain graces for the Church and especially for Your priests.

HOLY SPIRIT, You proceed from the Father and the Son. Come dwell within us. Grant us the grace to become living hosts with Jesus by sharing in His love, purity and sacrifice.

Let us ask for the grace to share with Mary the mystery of Jesus' Passion:

At the cross her station keeping,
Mary stood in sorrow weeping,
When her Son was crucified.

Mary, fount of love's devotion,
Let me share with true emotion
All the sorrow you endured.

Let me, to my latest breath,
In my body bear the death,
Of your dying Son divine.

Wounded with his every wound,
Steep my soul till it has swooned
In His very Blood away.

Savior, when my life shall leave me,
Through your mother's prayers
Receive me
With the fruits of victory.

V. St. Michael, our protector.
R. Pray for us.

V. For the canonization of Félix de Jesús, María Concepción, Ramón Ibarra, Luis María Martínez, Alfonso Pérez, Pablo Guzmán, and Moisés Lira.
R. Glorify your Servants, Lord.

V. For our benefactors,
R. Lord, fill them with your graces and grant them your gift of eternal life.

V. For the deceased, especially for priests and for our relatives.
R. By your death and resurrection, Lord, bring them into your eternal Kingdom.

BLESSING: May the Holy Spirit, source of all purity, communicate His purity to us through the Cross. May He keep our body, our soul and our whole being always pure and without stain. Amen.
