My morning prayer…
O Jesus, through the Immaculate Hear 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 of my sins, for the intentions of all my relatives and friends, and also for the intentions of the Holy Father. Amen.
I say this prayer nearly everyday. I say it thoughtfully, listening to every word carefully as I say them. By offering up my sufferings for the ones I love, I can get through them with a lot more grace and a lot more love.
After I say this prayer, I always look up at the crucifix, because I’m offering it up for Him as well. I see his pain and his sufferings and I know mine will not compare. He gave is a beautiful gift the afternoon on the cross, and I will do my best to honor Him daily.
