For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Father, may everything I do begin with Your inspiration and continue with Your saving help. Let my work always find its origin in You and through You reach completion. Guide me in Your gentle mercy, for left all to myself I cannot do Your will. I need You. Fill my mind with Your wisdom. Keep before me the wisdom and Love that You have revealed through Your Son Jesus, the Christ. Help me to be like Him in word and deed. Father, without You I can do nothing and I can be nothing. By Your Spirit, help me to know what is right and to be eager in doing Your will.
Through Jesus Christ's Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face. ~Amen
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
21 In that same hour He rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, "I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes; yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will.
22 All things have been delivered to Me by My Father; and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and any one to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him."
23 Then turning to the disciples He said privately, "Blessed are the eyes which see what you see!
24 For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it."
