2. DAILY OFFERING

Eternal Father, I offer you everything I do this day. I offer you my prayers, thoughts, words, joys and sufferings / in union with the Eucharistic sacrifice of your Son Jesus Christ. May the Holy Spirit who guided and empowered Jesus be my guide and strength / so that I can be a witness to your love. I pray that all those who are baptized may mature in their faith / and manifest it through clear, coherent and courageous choices in life. I also pray that the evangelization of the poor of our Congregation of the Mission / may everywhere increase the spirit of missionary animation and cooperation. Amen

3. PRAYER AFTER MORNING MEDITATION

I adore you, O my God, and love with all my heart. I thank you for having created me, called me into the Congregation of the Mission, and preserved me during the night past. I offer you all my actions of this day; grant that they may be done according to your holy will and for your greater glory. Keep me from sin and from every evil. May your grace be always with me and with all those who are dear to me. Amen

4. OFFICIAL PRAYER OF THE SOCIETY OF ST. VINCENT DE PAUL

Lord Jesus, You who willed to become poor,
give us eyes and a heart directed toward the
poor; help us to recognize you in them, in
their thirst, their hunger, their loneliness, and
their misfortune. Enkindle within our
Vincentian Family unity, simplicity,
humility, and the fire of love that burned in
St. Vincent de Paul. Strengthen us, so that,
faithful to the practice of these virtues,/ we
may contemplate you and serve you in the
person of the poor, and may one day be united
with you and them in your Kingdom. Amen

5. VINCENTIAN PRAYER FOR VOCATION

O hope of Israel!
Our savior in times of trouble
look down from heaven
and visit this vineyard
fill its streams, multiply its fruits
and perfect what your right hand has planted.
The harvest is indeed great
but the laborers are scarce
we ask you, O Lord of the harvest
to send laborers into Your Harvest
multiply Your family
and increase its joys
so that the walls of Jerusalem
May be built up
This is your house, O Lord,
This is your house
Let there not be in it we beseech you
A stone which you Yourself have not places
Preserve in Your name
Those you have already called
and sanctify them in truth. Amen

6. DA PACEM

Da Pacem Domine, in diebus nostris.
Quia non est alius qui pugnet pro nobis,
Nisi tu, Deus noster.
