Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One,

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One,

O most Holy Trinity,
I adore you
who dwell by your grace in my soul.
Sanctify me more and more,
make me love you more and more,
abide with me evermore
and be my true joy. Amen.


O Omnipotence of the Father,
help my frailty
and save me from the depths of misery.

O Wisdom of the Son,
direct all my thoughts,
my words, and my deeds.

O Love of the Holy Spirit,
be the source of all the actions of my mind,
that they may always be conformed
to God's good pleasure. Amen.


I praise you, Father all-powerful.
I praise you, Divine Son, our Lord and Savior.
I praise you, Spirit of Love and Consolation.
One God, three Persons, Triune Unity,
be near me in the temple of my soul.
Draw me to share in your life and love.
In your kindness
grant to me and to my family
the riches of your mercy,
and a share in your blessing,
that we may come to the glory of your Kingdom
and rejoice in loving you for all eternity. Amen.

By St. Francis de Sales

I vow and consecrate to God
all that is in me:
my memory and my actions to God the Father;
my understanding and my words to God the Son;
my will and my thoughts to God the Holy Spirit.

I consecrate my heart, my body,
my tongue, my senses and all my sorrows
to the sacred Humanity of Jesus Christ,
who consented to be betrayed
into the hands of wicked men
and to suffer the torment of the Cross for me.


Most holy Trinity, Godhead indivisible,
 Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
 our first beginning and our last end,
you have made us in accord with your own image and likeness.

Grant that all the thoughts of our minds,
 all the words of our tongues,
all the affections of our hearts,
 and all the actions of our being
may always be conformed to your holy Will.

So may we, having seen you veiled in appearance here below
by means of faith,
come at last to contemplate you face-to-face,
in the perfect possession of you forever in heaven. Amen.


Before the tremendous throne of your majesty,
at the exalted place of your divinity,
the majestic seat of your glory
and the sublime throne of your sovereignty
where your servants the Cherubim continuously sing hymns
and where your glorifiers the Seraphim sing unceasingly the "Sanctus,"
we bow down with fear
adore with trembling,
give thanks, and glorify you without ceasing,
at all times, O Lord of the universe,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
for all ages.


When the essence of the sweetness of your love, O Lord our God,
will make itself felt in us,
and when our souls will be enlightened by the knowledge of your truth,
then will we be worthy to go forth  to meet your beloved Son
as he comes from heaven,
and there render thanks and glorify you unceasingly
in your victorious Church,
full of help and happiness,
because you are the Lord and Creator of everything,
through all ages.

For all the help and the incomprehensible graces
that you have granted
we give you thanks and we glorify you unceasingly
in your victorious Church, full of every help and happiness
because you are Lord and Creator of everything,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
through all ages.


To you O Lord of the Universe,
we proclaim our confession,
and we glorify you, Jesus Christ,
because you are the resurrection of our bodies
and the savior of our souls.

You indeed, Lord, are the resurrection of our bodies
and the good savior of our souls
and the everlasting keeper of our life,
and we are bound to thank you,
adore and glorify you
at every moment,
O Lord of the universe
through all ages.


Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
behold us prostrate in your divine presence.
We humble ourselves profoundly
and beg you to forgive our sins.

We adore you, Almighty Father,
and with hearts overflowing we thank you
that you have given us your divine Son Jesus to be our Redeemer,
and that he bequeathed himself to us in the most holy Eucharist
even to the end of the world,
revealing to us the wondrous love of his heart
in this mystery of faith and love.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be forever. Amen.

O Word of God, Jesus our Redeemer,
we adore you and with hearts overflowing we thank you
for having taken human flesh upon yourself
and having become both Priest and Victim in the sacrifice of the Cross,
for our redemption:
a sacrifice which, through the overflowing love of your Sacred Heart,
you renew upon our altars every moment.
O High Priest, divine Victim,
give us the grace to honor your holy sacrifice in the most sacred Eucharist
with the homage of Mary most holy and of all your holy Church,
triumphant, suffering and militant.
We offer ourselves wholly to you;
of your  infinite goodness and mercy accept our offering,
unite it to your own and grant us your blessings.

Glory be to the Father,  and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be forever. Amen.

O Divine Spirit the Paraclete, we adore you
and with hearts overflowing we give you thanks
that you have, with such great love for us,
brought about the ineffable blessings of the Incarnation of the Word of God,
a blessing which is being continually extended and enlarged
in the most holy Sacrament of the Eucharist.
By this adorable mystery of love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
grant to us and all poor sinners your holy grace.
Pour forth your holy gifts upon us and upon all redeemed souls,
and in an especial manner upon the visible head of the Church, the Pope,
upon all Cardinals, Bishops and Pastors of souls,
upon priests, deacons and all other ministers of your sanctuary,
upon those in the religious and consecrated life,
and all your people. Amen.

Glory be to the Father,  and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be forever. Amen.

a prayer of St. Catherine of Sienna

Eternal God, eternal Trinity, you have made the blood of Christ so precious through his sharing in your divine nature. You are a mystery as deep as the sea; the more I search, the more I find, and the more I find the more I search for you. But I can never be satisfied; what I receive will ever leave me desiring more. When you fill my soul I have an even greater hunger, and I grow more famished for your light. I desire above all to see you, the true light, as you really are.

I have tasted and seen the depth of your mystery and the beauty of your creation with the light of my understanding. I have clothed myself with your likeness and have seen what I shall be. Eternal Father, you have given me a share in your power and the wisdom that Christ claims as his own, and your Holy Spirit has given me the desire to love you. You are my Creator, eternal Trinity, and I am your creature. You have made of me a new creation in the blood of your Son, and I know that you are moved with love at the beauty of your creation, for you have enlightened me.

Eternal Trinity, Godhead, mystery deep as the sea, you could give me no greater gift than the gift of yourself. For you are a fire ever burning and never consumed, which itself consumes all the selfish love that fills my being. Yes, you are a fire that takes away the coldness, illuminates the mind with its light and causes me to know your truth. By this light, reflected as it were in a mirror, I recognise that you are the highest good, one we can neither comprehend nor fathom. And I know that you are beauty and wisdom itself. The food of angels, you gave yourself to man in the fire of your love.

You are the garment which covers our nakedness, and in our hunger you are a satisfying food, for you are sweetness and in you there is no taste of bitterness, O triune God!
