Dear Lord, here is a new day You have given me in which to love You and help others to love You as well.
So that my love for You may be even stronger, help me to spend the hours of this day in Your Presence, to offer as small sacrifices some of my own little likes and dislikes. Help me not to waste my time in idle pursuits but instead to busy myself to the greatest possible extent in works which are pleasing to You. And above all things, help me to love and accept Your Holy Will.
Lord Jesus, through this cross of my disability, it is Your desire to bring me nearer to Your Divine Heart, and especially do You want me to offer my cross, united with Your own - in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world - for the salvation of souls.
O my Jesus, help me today not to waste a single one of the trials - both large and small - which, if borne with patience, can obtain so many graces. I desire the Will of the Father, and walking in Your footsteps, I accept these trials and offer them to the Father with all my heart in reparation for my sins, for my Group and its Intention, for our deceased CUSANS, our benefactors, and all those who ask for our prayers, and for the other apostolic intentions which have been entrusted to me.
Bless my brothers and sisters in CUSA, and may we all glorify You and give proof of our love for You by bearing courageously and even joyously the cross which is ours. Amen.
