Schoenstatt Prayers

9-PrayingHoly Trinity ParishSt. Paul, MN

Morning Offering

What I bear and endure,

what I say and what I dare,

what I think and what I cherish,

all the merits that I gain,

what I direct and what I conquer,

all my joys and all my sorrows:

what I am and what I have,

I give to you as a gift of love.

Use it so that the holy stream of graces

flowing richly from the shrine

may fill the souls of those

who have given their hearts to Schoenstatt

and gently lead there

all those whom you wish to choose in kindness.

Accept everything that our efforts may be

fruitful which we dedicate to the Trinity.

 

Consecration

My Queen, my Mother, I give myself

entirely to you, and to show my devotion to you,

I consecrate to you this day

my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart,

my entire self without reserve.

As I am your own, my good Mother,

guard me and defend me

as your property and possession. Amen.

 

Divine Providence

You know the way for me, you know the time,

into your hands I trustingly place mine.

Your plan is perfect, born of perfect love.

You know the way for me, that is enough.

 

Confidence

I trust your might, your kindness, Mother dear,

I do believe that you are always near.

Schoenstatt’s great Queen, O Mother mild,

I blindly trust in you and in your Child.

 

Oneness with Mary

O Mother, in your holy heart

deeply inscribe each name.

And as a sign that we are yours

write it with blood and flame.

In love and childlike gratitude

your name shall also be

deeply inscribed within my heart

for all eternity.

 

Apostolate

Mother Thrice Admirable, Mother of Grace,

teach us your enemies bravely to face,

never regarding their number and might,

spreading your love over the earth’s dark night,

so that the world through you made new,

pay to your Son his homage due.

 

Mother with your Child divine,

make our country wholly thine.

Help that it will never cease

to follow you and gain God’s peace.

Mother and Child, united in love,

will restore it in grace from above.

 

Thanksgiving

With heartfelt love I thank you, Mother dear,

with you to guide me, I need have no fear.

When all around seemed dark and drear and gray,

you stood as beacon for a brighter day.

Your smile illumined every wakeful hour,

you did uphold me with your gentle power.

Thanks, a thousand thanks to you, to God shall be

now and for all eternity. Amen.

 

Imitation of Mary

Let us walk like you through life,

let us mirror you forever,

strong and noble, meek and mild,

peace and love be our endeavor.

Walk in us through our world,

make it ready for the Lord.

Think in me, O Mother,

that my thoughts be clear and bright;

speak in me, O Mother,

that my speech be true and right;

work in me, O Mother,

my work is then well done;

then holy is my labor,

my rest a holy one.

You penetrate my being,

fill every part of me,

that all your ways and conduct

in me each one can see.

 

Holy Spirit

Mary, in the midst of the apostles you powerfully

implore the coming of the promised Spirit,

who transforms weak men and women

and directs the Church on the road to victory.

Open our souls for the Spirit of God

that he may change the course of the world.

 

Holy Spirit,

you are the soul of my soul.

I humbly adore you.

Enlighten me, strengthen me,

guide me, comfort me.

Reveal your wishes to me

as far as this is in accordance

with the will of the Eternal Father.

Show me what Eternal Love wants of me.

Show me what I should do.

Show me what I should suffer,

Show me what I should humbly and

thoughtfully accept, bear and endure.

Holy Spirit, show me your will

and the will of the Father,

for I want my whole life to be nothing else

than a continuous, an everlasting yes

to the wishes, to the will of God,

the Eternal Father.

The Memorare 

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled

to your protection, implored your help or sought your intercession, was left

unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my

Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of

the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer

me. Amen.
