Prayer for a Simple Kind of Love by Haley Stewart
Heavenly Bridegroom, pour out your grace on my marriage. Guard and protect it, drawing us ever nearer to you, and closer to each other. Nurture the seed of friendship in our hearts that we may take great joy in each other’s company. Equip each of us to be more devoted to the good of the other than our own desires. Knit our dreams for life together and make our way forward clear. When we fall short, help us to forgive ourselves; and when our spouse falls short, help us to offer them the same grace to start again without keeping score. Impress upon our hearts that our marriage is more than the love of two people; it is a reflection of your love for the Church. Strengthen us through the grace of the sacraments and prayer to make that reflection beautiful that we may be of one mind, one heart, and one flesh. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
A Kitchen Sink Offering by Kathryn Whitaker
O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart 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, for the salvation of souls, the reparation of sins, the reunion of all Christians, and in particular for the intentions of the Holy Father this month. Amen.
Prayer to Our Lady of Sorrow by Rachel Bulman
Our Lady of Sorrows, reveal the fullness of beauty within this pain. I trust your Immaculate Heart and your motherly wisdom to guide me when the way seems rough and the journey gets weary. Above all, lead me back to my first love. When the sorrow is great and the way seems hopeless, let me gaze at you in the Pietà, carrying the body of our Lord, and receive the strength I need to find him again and again, even in the sorrows of this life.
