O Salutaris
O Saving Victim


O salutaris hostia,
O Saving Victim, opening wide,

Quae caeli pandis ostium:
The gates of heaven to us below.

Bella premunt hostilia,
Our foes press on from every side

Da robur, fer auxilium.
Thine aid supply, Thy strength bestow,

Uni trinoque Domino,
To Thy Great Name be endless praise,

Sit sempiterna gloria:
Immortal Godhead One in Three!

Qui vitam sine termino.
O grant us endless length of days

Nobis donet in patria.
In our true native land with Thee.

Amen.


Priest: You have given them bread from heaven —
All: Containing within Itself all sweetness.

Prayer of the Angel at Fatima



My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You. I ask forgiveness for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope in You, and do not love You. (Repeat three times)

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly, and I offer You the Most Precious Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He is offended, and by the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.








Action Item




The Church teaches that one of the spiritual works of mercy is "to pray for the living and the dead." May we invite you to sponsor a Beloved? If you have already done so, would you consider 'adopting' another soul, and agree to pray for their repose?



May God bless you abundantly here and in the life to come!
