3-day Spiritual Exercises (Silent Retreat), pray for me!

Hello all!

I will be going on my first ever Spiritual Exercises this evening with the Jesuits. It is not the full 30-day retreat, but it is a more compact 3-day version of it.

I ask that you all keep me in your prayers, as I will be doing for you!

Pax Christi!

I will pray for you.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Prayer for the Help of the Holy Spirit

O God, send forth Your Holy Spirit into my heart that
I may perceive; into my mind, that I may remember;
and into my soul, that I may meditate. Inspire me to speak
with piety, holiness, tenderness, and mercy.

Teach, guide, and direct my thoughts and senses from
beginning to end. May Your grace ever help and correct
me. And may I be strengthened now with wisdom from
on high, for the sake of Your infinite mercy. Through
Christ Our Lord, Amen.

– St. Anthony of Padua

Shhhhh! :wink:

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless, and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible,
look kindly upon us, and increase your mercy in us,
that in difficult moments, we might not despair nor become despondent,
but with great confidence, submit ourselves to your holy will,
which is love and Mercy itself.
Amen.

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Eternal Father, 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. x10

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
