PRAYER of Saint Bede the Venerable
To be recited after reading Holy Scripture
Let me not, O Lord be puffed up with worldly wisdom,
Mary, my dearest mother,Give me your heart so beautiful, so pure, so immaculate, so full of love and humility, that I may receive Jesus as you did- and go in haste to give him to others. -- Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

I offer you the Body and Blood,
Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son,
Our Lord, Jesus Christ,
in atonement for our sins
and those of the whole world.
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion,
have mercy on us and on the whole world.
From the Chaplet of Divine Mercy
