PRAYER BEFORE THE HOMILY
We will make our lives your dwelling
We will build your throne in our hearts.
Come Holy Spirit,
Oh come and take your place in our lives.
Soul of my Saviour
sanctify my breast;
Body of Christ,
be my saving guest;
Blood of my Saviour,
bathe me in thy tide,
wash me with water
flowing from thy side.
Strength and protection
may thy passion be;
O blessèd Jesus,
hear and answer me;
deep in thy wounds, Lord,
hide and shelter me;
so shall I never,
never part from thee.
Guard and defend me
from the foe malign;
in death’s dread moments
make me only thine;
call me, and bid me
come to thee on high,
when I may praise thee
with thy saints for aye.
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen. (St Alphonsus LIguori)
Salve Regina *
Salve, Regina, mater misericordiae;
vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve.
Ad te clamamus, exules filii Hevae.
Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes
in hac lacrimarum valle.
Eia ergo, advocata nostra,
illos tuos misericordes oculos
ad nos converte.
Et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,
nobis post hoc exilium ostende.
O Clemens, O pia, O dulcis Virgo Maria.
Ave, Regina caelorum! **
Ave, Regina caelorum,
Ave, Domina angelorum,
Salve radix, salve porta,
exqua mundo lux est orta.
Gaude Virgo gloriosa,
super omnes speciosa,
vale, o valde decora,
et pro nobis Christum exora.
Regina Caeli ***
Regina caeli, laetare, alleluia,
Quia quem meruisti portare, alleluia,
Resurrexit sicut dixit, alleluia,
Ora Pro Nobis Deum, alleluia.
Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia,
For He whom you did merit to bear, alleluia,
Has risen, as he said, alleluia,
Pray for us to God, alleluia.
** Ave, Regina caelorum!
Hail, Queen of heaven,
Hail lady of the angels,
Hail root, hail door,
From whom the Light of the world was born.
Rejoice, glorious Virgin,
Precious above all.
Hail, O very beautiful one,
And plead for us to Christ.
* Salve Regina
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
Hail our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry, Poor banished children of Eve;
To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate,
Thine eyes of mercy toward us;
And after this our exile,
Show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust Satan into hell and with him all the evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
