Lord, You invite all who are burdened to come to You.
Allow Your healing hand to heal me.Touch my soul with Your compassion for others.Touch my heart with Your courage and infinite love for all.Touch my mind with Your wisdom, and may my mouth always proclaim Your praise.Teach me to reach out to You in my need, and help me to lead others to You by my example.Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring me health in body and spirit that I may serve You with all my strength.Touch gently this life which You have created, now and forever. Amen.

An Act of Contrition
O my God, I am heartily sorryfor having offended you.I detest all my sinsbecause I dread the loss of heavenand the pains of hell.But most of allbecause they offend You, My God,Who are all goodand deserving of all my love.I firmly resolve,with the help of Your grace,to sin no more and to avoidthe near occasions of sin. Amen
Prayer of Saint Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.Where there is hatred, let me sow love;where there is injury, pardon;where there is doubt, faith;where there is despair, hope;where there is darkness, light;and where there is sadness, joy.O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;to be understood as to understand;to be loved as to love;for it is in giving that we receive;it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;and it is in dyingthat we are born to eternal life. Amen.
