St. Elizabeth of Hungary
          Lord God,
You blessed
Elizabeth Ann Seton with gifts of grace as wife and mother, educator and foundress,
so that she might spend her life in service to your people. Through her example
and prayers, may we learn
to express our love for You
in love for one another.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, you Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever.
St. Maria Faustina
A Prayer to be Merciful
Help me, O Lord, that my eyes may be merciful, so that I may never suspect or judge from appearances, but look for what is beautiful in my neighbor’s soul. Help me, O Lord, that my ears may be merciful, so that I may give heed to my neighbor’s needs.
Help me, O lord, that my tongue may be merciful, so that I should never speak negatively of my neighbor.
Help me, O lord, that my hands may be merciful and filled with good deeds, so that I may do only good to my neighbor. Help me, O Lord, that my feet may be merciful, so that I may hurry to assist my neighbor.
Help me, O Lord, that my heart may be merciful, so that I myself may feel all the sufferings of my neighbor.
May Your mercy, O Lord, rest upon me. Amen.
Fireman’s Prayer
Almighty God, Protector of all Mankind, Your strength, power, and wisdom are a beacon of light to all men:
Give special guidance to Firemen and Firefighters so that we may be protected from harm while performing our duty.
Help me with your loving care while I work to save the lives and property of all people young and old.
Give me the courage, the alertness to protect my neighbors and all others whom I am pledge to aid when involved in fire or accident. Amen.
A Prayer of Saint
Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred,
let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon, Where there is doubt, faith, Where there is despair, hope, Where there is darkness, light, and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand; To be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive It is in pardoning that
we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that
we are born to eternal life.
Prayer for my Pet
In Your infinite wisdom, Lord God, when You created the Universe You blessed us with all living creatures. We especially thank You for giving us our pets who are our friends and who bring us so much joy in life. Their presence very often helps us get through trying times. Kindly bless my pet. May my pet continue giving me joy and remind me of Your power.
May we realize that as our pets trust us to take care of them, so we should trust You to take care of us, and in taking care of them we share in Your love for all Your creatures. Enlighten our minds to preserve all endangered species so that we may continue to appreciate all of Your creations.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

         Novena Prayer in Honor of
St. Francis Xavier
O Great Saint Francis, well beloved and full of charity, with thee I reverently adore the Divine Majesty; and since I specially rejoice in the singular gifts of grace bestowed on thee in life, and of glory after death, I give thanks to God and beg of thee, with all the affection of my heart that by thy powerful intercession thou mayest obtain for me above all things the grace to live a holy life and die a holy death.
Moreover, I beg of thee to obtain for me (here insert some special spiritual or temporal favor); but if what I ask does not tend to the glory of God and the greater good of my soul, do thou, I beseech thee, obtain for me what will more certainly attain these ends. Amen.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be, etc.. Indulgence 300 days

Prayer to St. Frances
Xavier Cabrini
Almighty and Eternal Father, Giver of all Gifts, show us Thy mercy, and grant, we beseech Thee, through the merits of Thy faithful Servant, Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, that all who invoke her intercession may obtain what they desire according to the good pleasure of Thy Holy Will.
(here name your request) St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, beloved spouse of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, intercede for us that the favor we now ask may be granted.
Saint Gabriel Prayer
O God,
who from among
all your angels chose the Archangel Gabriel
to announce the mystery of the Incarnation, mercifully grant that
we who solemnly remember him on earth may feel the benefit of his patronage in heaven,
who lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.
Prayer to
Saint Genesius
Dear Genesius, according to a very ancient story, when you were still a pagan, you once ridiculed Christ while acting on the stage. But, like Saul on the road to Damascus, you were floored by Christ’s powerful grace. You rose bearing witness to Jesus and died a great martyr’s death. Intercede for your fellow actors before God that they may faithfully and honestly perform their roles and so help others to understand their role in life and thus enabling them to attain their end in heaven.

Help me to inspire other women with confidence in thy gracious assistance. Aid all of us that, doing God’s Holy Will here on earth, we may merit eternal life in heaven, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Saint Gregory
the Great’s Easter Prayer
It is only right,
with all the powers of our heart and mind, to praise You Father
and Your Only-begotten Son,
Our Lord Jesus Christ:
Dear Father, by Your wondrous Condescension of loving-kindness toward us,
Your servants, You gave up Your Son. Dear Jesus You paid the debt of Adam for us to the Eternal Father by
Your Blood poured
forth in loving-kindness.
You cleared away the darkness of sin By Your magnificent
and radiant Resurrection.
You broke the bonds of death
and rose from the grave as a Conqueror. You reconciled heaven and earth.
Our life had no hope of eternal happiness before You redeemed us.
Your Resurrection has
washed away our sins,
restored our innocence
and brought us joy.
How inestimable is the tenderness
of Your love!
Prayer to Saint Helen
Holy and blessed Saint Helen, with the anguish and devotion with which You sought the Cross of Christ, I plead that You give me God’s grace to suffer in patience the labours of this life, so that through them and through Your intercession and protection, I will be albe to seek and carry the Cross, which God has placed upon me, so that I can serve Him in this life and enjoy His Glory ever after. Amen.
St. Hubert
Great St. Hubert, you were passionate about hunting,
but when touched by Divine Grace, you put down your bow and took up the collar of Priesthood.
Known for your miracles
and the conversion of hundreds, you convinced others to worship and glorify
Our Lord.
Moved by your example,
I implore your help.
I ask for the Grace to follow in your footsteps and become a passionate disciple of Christ. Amen.
Prayer to
St. Ignatius Loyola Founder of the Society of Jesus

By the radiance
of your holy life
you did draw the two sisters united in spirit into Eternal Light;

You were counted worthy of divine glory.
Ask that we who praise you may receive the forgiveness of our sins. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer in honor of
St. Dymphna
Lord Jesus Christ, You have willed that St. Dymphna should be invoked by thousands of clients as the patroness of nervous and mental disease and have brought it about that her interest in these patients should be an inspiration to and an ideal of charity throughout the world. Grant that, through the prayers of this youthful martyr of purity, those who suffer from nervous and mental illness everywhere on earth may be helped and consoled. I reccomend to You in particular (Here mention those you wish to pray for) Be pleased to hear the prayers of St. Dymphna and of Your Blessed Mother. Give those whom I recommend the patience to bear with their affliction and resignation to do Your divine will. Give them the consolation they need and especially the cure they so much deisre, if it be Your will. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
St. Elizabeth of Hungary (Patron of Widows/ers) Dear Saint, you were always poor in spirit, most generous toward the poor, faithful
to your husband, and fully consecrated to your Divine Brideroom.
Grant your help to widows and widowers and keep them faithful to their heavenly Lord. Teach them how to cope with their loss and to make use of
their time in the service of God our Lord. Amen.
