A MORNING PRAYER TO THE TRINITY
Most holy and adorable Trinity, one God in three Persons, I believe that you are here present; I adore you with the deepest humility, and render to you, with my whole heart, the homage which is due to your sovereign majesty.
O my God, I most humbly thank you for all the favors you have bestowed upon me to the present moment. I give you thanks from the depth of my heart that you have created me after your own image and likeness, that you have redeemed me by the precious blood of your dear Son, and that you have preserved me and brought me safe to the beginning of another day, I offer to you, O Lord, my whole being, and in particular all my thoughts, words, actions and sufferings of this day.
May your divine love animate them, and may they all tend to your greater glory. Adorable Jesus, my Savior and Master, model of all perfection, I resolve and will endeavor, this day, to imitate your example, to be, like you, mild, humble, chaste, zealous, charitable and resigned. I will redouble my efforts that I may not fall, this day, into any of those sins which I have heretofore committed (especially), and which I sincerely desire to forsake.
O my God, you know my poverty and weakness, and that I am unable to do anything good without you; deny me not, O God, the help of your grace; proportion it to my necessities; give me strength to avoid everything which you forbid, and to practice the good which you have commanded; and enable me to bear patiently all the trials which it may please you to send me. Our Father + Hail Mary.
One may add here the Acts of Faith, Hope, and Love.
O holy Virgin, Mother of God, my Mother and Patroness, I place myself under your protection; I throw myself with confidence into the arms of your compassion. Be to me, O Mother of mercy, my refuge in distress, my consolation under suffering, my advocate with thy adorable Son, now and at the hour of my death. Amen.
O faithful Guardian and Father of Virgins, Blessed Joseph, to whom was confided the care of Jesus, and of Mary the Queen of Virgins, I most humbly ask you, by the love with which you bore Jesus and Mary, to obtain for me that, being preserved from every stain during my whole life, I may ever be able to serve them with unspotted purity of mind and body. Amen.
