February 9 St. Jerome Emiliani

Today, I heard in my soul these words: My daughter, it is time for you to take action; I am with you. Great persecutions and suffering are in store for you, but be comforted by the thought that many souls will be saved and sanctified by this work.

-St. Faustina Kowalska


O Jesus, grant me to be Your happy victim; consume me in the fire of Divine Love, Your little holocaust.

-St. Therese of Lisieux


Prayer of Self-Offering to God

Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my whole will. All that I am and all that I possess You have given me. I surrender it all to You to be disposed of according to Your Will. Give me only Your love and Your grace; with these I will be rich enough and will desire nothing more.
