The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,that never was it known

that anyone who fled to your protection,implored your help

or sought your intercession,was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,

I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother;to you do I come,

before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate,despise not my petitions,but in your mercy hear and answer me. Amen



St Augustine

  • O thou, who art
    • The light of the minds that know thee
    • The life of the souls that love thee,
    • And the strength of the wills that serve thee;
  • Help us so to know thee
    • That we may truly love thee;
  • So to love thee
    • That we may fully serve thee,
  • Whom to serve is perfect freedom.

Intelligence to understand you

Diligence to seek you

Patience to wait for you

Eyes to behold you

A heart to meditate upon you

And a life to proclaim you.

Through the power of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

Our Lord,



Blessed John Henry Newman’s prayer for vocation

I shall do good, I shall do his work;I shall be an angel of peace,a preacher of the truth in my own place,while not intending it,

if I do but keep his commandmentsand serve him in my calling.Therefore I will trust him.Whatever, wherever I am,I can never be thrown away.

I ask not to see,I ask not to know,I ask simply to be used.

God has created me to do him some definite service;He has committed some work to mewhich he has not committed to another.I have my mission – I may never know it in this life,

but I shall be told it in the next.I have a part in this great work; I am a link in a chain,a bond of connection between persons.He has not created me for naught.

prayer of st francis
Prayer of St Francis

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 seekto 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.

Holy Spirit, come into my heart;

draw it to Thee by Thy power, O my God.

Preserve me, O ineffable Love,

with Thy dear love,

and every pain will seem light to me.

My Father, my sweet Lord,

help me in all my actions. Amen.

I implore you, good Jesus,
