What prayers (private or public ones) do you pray before Mass? What do you pray about?
I will of course, ask for forgiveness for my sins; I will offer any received Graces from Mass for our sons who do not attend Church. I may pray a Hail Mary. Depending on how much time there is before Mass, I might pray a Divine Mercy or Rosary.
During Mass, when the gifts are being brought up and blessed, I offer to the Lord my gifts and talents for His Goodness; my strengths and weaknesses that they may be blessed by the Lord, and again, prayers for our sons.
Before Communion, I pray to receive the Body and Blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the holiest manner possible, that He may make me holy. After, similar.
I also have the St. Joseph <?> prayer book, which is a wonderful source of beautiful prayers.
