A Prayer For Daily Neglects

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Sacred Heart of Jesus, with all its love, all its sufferings and all its merits.

First -- To expiate all the sins I have committed this day and during all my life.

(Glory be to the Father and to the Son and the Holy Ghost as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.)

Second -- To purify the good I have done badly this day and during all my life.

(Glory Be to the Father...)

Third -- To minister for the good I ought to have done, and that I have neglected this day and during all my life.

(Glory Be to the Father...)

A poor Clare nun who had just died, appeared to her Abbess, who was praying for her, and said to her, "I went straight to Heaven, for, by means of this prayer, recited every evening, I paid all my debts."


Good Night To Our Blessed Mother

Night is falling dear Mother, the long day is o'er!

And before thy loved image I am kneeling once more

To thank thee for keeping me safe through the day

To ask thee this night to keep evil away.

Many times have I fallen today, Mother Dear,

Many graces neglected, since last I knelt here;

Wilt thou not in pity, my own Mother mild,

Ask Jesus to pardon the sins of thy child?

I am going to rest, for the day's work is done,

Its hours and its moments have passed one by one;

And the God who will judge me has noted them all,

He has numbered each grace, He has counted each fall.

In His book they are written against the last day,

O Mother, ask Jesus to wash them away;

For one drop of His blood which for sinners was spilt,

Is sufficient to cleanse the whole world of its guilt.

And if ere the dawn I should draw my last breath

And the sleep that I take be the long sleep of death,

Be near me, dear Mother, for dear Jesus' sake

When my soul on Eternity's shore shall awake.
