Prayer for Holiness-Pray each day of Lent

Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy.

Act in me, O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy.

Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, that I love only what is holy.

Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy.

Guard me so, O Holy Spirit, that I may always be holy.


Peace of Heart-Prayer for Interior Sainthood-Week 1 & 2

Almighty and Eternal God,

Give me, I beseech You,

the great gift of inward peace.

Command the winds and storms

of my unruly passions.

Subdue, by Your grace,

my proneness to love

created things too much.

Give me a love of suffering for Your sake.

make me forbearing and kind to others,

that I may avoid quarrels and contentions.

And teach me constantly to seek after

and to acquire that perfect resignation

to Your Holy Will

which alone brings interior peace.


Saint Francis Prayer-Prayer for Sainthood Amongst Our Families-Week 3 & 4

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

where there is sadness, joy.

O, Divine Master,

grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;

to be understood as to understand;

to be loved as to love;

For it is in giving that we receive;

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.


Prayer for God’s Blessing of One’s Daily Work-Prayer for Sainthood in the World-Week 5 & 6

O Lord, my God,

Creator and Ruler of the universe,

it is Your Will that human beings accept the duty of work.

May the work I do bring growth in this life to me

and those I love and help to extend the Kingdom of Christ.

Give all persons work that draws them to You

and to each other in cheerful service.

I unite all my work with the Sacrifice of Jesus

in the Mass that it may be pleasing to You and give You


I beg Your Blessing upon all my efforts.

With Saint Joseph as my example and guide,

help me to do the work You have asked

and come to the reward You have prepared.
