Prayer to our Founder
O Jesus, Eternal Priest and Bread of Life in the Holy Eucharist, who formed the soul of your Servant Silviano Carrillo in the furnace of your Infinite Love, and enriched him with graces to which he so generously responded, becoming an exemplary priest, a founder of a religious Congregation, a guide to children and youth, an apostle of the Blessed Sacrament and of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and a devoted pastor of souls; humbly and confidently I beseech You that through his intercession you grant me the favor I ask, so that your Servant, Silviano Carrillo, may be raised to the dignity of the altar, a new witness to holiness in the Church, which will bring souls to share in Your Love. You who live and reign in the unity of the Father and of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever.
Prayer for Distress
I shall walk through dark valleys, I fear no harm for you are at my side. Your rod and staff shall give me courage, No evil shall befall me, No weakness in my stride. God wills not my foot to slip Or my guardian sleep, He guides me from all evil, The Lord is my guardian; The Lord the shade I keep, By day the sun cannot harm me Or the moon by night. For the Lord said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled, Have faith in God and also in me. In my Father’s house There are many dwelling places. If there were not, Would I have told you That I am going to prepare A place for you? And if I go And prepare a place for you, I will come back again And take you to myself, So that where I am You also may be.” If the Lord is with us, Who can be against us?
Prayer to Saint Jude
Most holy Apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases, of things despaired of. Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone; make use, I implore you, of this particular privilege accorded to you, to bring visible and speedy help, where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolations and succor of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly (here make your request), so that I may bless God with you and all the elect forever. I promise you, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you.
Prayer for Any Needs
Lord Jesus, You have said, “Learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart.” With confidence in Your loving heart which offers rest to weary souls, we come to You in this time of special need. In Your unfailing love, read the prayer that is written on our hearts, and grant the grace that we ask of You, in accordance with Your holy will. In Your name we pray.
