Time with Jesus: Meditation and Sacred Reading  

Before you begin to pray with Scripture
Choose a passage of Scripture for prayer.  This may be done the day before, using a bible, or a missal with readings from the Mass for that Day.

Jesus, a Jew, prayed regularly with his synagogue community (Luke 4). He also went often to quiet places to pray to the Father, sometimes alone, or with his closest friends (eg. Luke 6:12; Mark 6:31-33)

There is a rich treasury of prayers in the Catholic Tradition, which may be prayed with others or alone. The ‘Our Father’ is the prayer Jesus taught us (Matthew 6:9-15, Luke 11:1-4).

+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

I offer you my prayers, works, joys,

Lord, we thank you for the blessings of this day and for this time together as family.
We thank you for this wonderful meal and for this time we share.

Bless us, O Lord,
and these Your gifts

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.

V. The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.           Hail Mary,...

O my God, I am sorry that I have sinned against you,
because you are so good,

O God, give me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,

Rejoice, O Queen of Heaven, Alleluia!
For He Whom thou didst merit to bear, Alleluia!

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of mercy!
Hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope!

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
