O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers, works, joys and sufferings of this day for all the intentions of your Sacred Heart, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in reparation for my sins, for the intentions of all my relatives and friends and, in particular, for the intentions of the Holy Father. Amen.
Act of Faith
O my God, I firmly believe all the truths that the holy Catholic Church believes and teaches; I believe these truths, O Lord, because thou, the infallible Truth, hast revealed them to her; in this faith I am resolved to live and die. Amen.
Act of Hope
O my God, relying on Thy promises, I hope that, through the infinite merits of Jesus Christ, thou wilt grant me pardon of my sins, and the graces necessary to serve thee in this life and to obtain eternal happiness in the next. Amen.
Act of Charity
O my God, I love thee with my whole heart and above all things, because thou art infinitely good and perfect; and I love my neighbor as myself for love of thee. Grant that I may love thee more and more in this life, and in the next for all eternity. Amen.
Guardian Angel Prayer
Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God’s love commits me here, ever this day, be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.
Act of Contrition
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended thee. I detest all my sins because of thy just punishment, but most of all because I have offended thee, who are all good and all deserving of my love. With thy help, I firmly resolve to sin no more and avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manager; because there was no room for them at the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in a swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.
But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
Above all, maintain constant love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining."
1 Peter 4:7-9
"Every pious desire, every good thought, every charitable work inspired by the love of Jesus, contributes to the perfection of the whole body of the faithful. A person who does nothing more than lovingly pray to God for his brethren, participates in the great work of saving souls."

"At the end of our life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal.
You will regret time not spent with a husband, a child, a friend or a parent."

Look back and thank God.
Look forward and trust God.
Look around and serve God.
Look within and find God.
"You can't go to heaven hating somebody. Forgive now. Be compassionate now. Be patient now. Be grateful now. Love Jesus and Mary now. Accept God's will now."

"The most deadly poison of our times is indifference. And this happens, although the praise of God should know no limits. Let us strive, therefore, to praise Him to the greatest extent of our powers."

"Oh, how painful it is to Me that souls so seldom unite themselves to Me in Holy Communion. I wait for souls, and they are indifferent toward Me. I love them tenderly and sincerely, and they distrust Me. I want to lavish My graces on them, and they do not want to accept them. They treat Me as a dead object, whereas My Heart is full of love and mercy. In order that you may know at least some of My pain, imagine the most tender of mothers who has great love for her children, while those children spurn her love. Consider her pain. No one is in a position to console her. This is but a pale image and likeness of My love." - Diary of St. Faustina Kowalska, 1447
