June 28 St. Irenaeus

My Good Shepherd, who have shown Your very gentle mercy to us unworthy sinners in various physical pains and sufferings, give grace and strength to me, Your little lamb, that in no tribulation or anguish or pain may I turn away from you.

-St. Francis of Assisi

 

Let us always worship and bless the almighty hand of God. It strikes only to heal us and make us see the emptiness of the things in this valley of tears where we are only passing through.

-St. Bernadette Soubirous

 

Prayer for Perseverance

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, living and life-giving fountain of eternal life, infinite treasure of the Divinity, and glowing furnace of love, You are my refuge and my sanctuary. O adorable and glorious Savior, consume my heart with the burning fire that ever inflames Your Heart. Pour down on my soul the graces that flow from Your love. Let my heart be so united with Yours that our wills may be one, and mine may in all things be conformed to Yours. May Your Will be the rule both of my desires and of my actions.

Amen.
