Prayer for Forgiveness
By St Gemma Galgani (1878-1903)

My crucified God, behold me at Your feet.
Do not reject me, a poor sinner,
as I appear before You.
I have offended You much in the past, my Jesus
but in the future I resolve to sin no more.

My God, I put all my sins before You.
I have considered them and realise
they do not deserve Your pardon.
But I beg of you to cast one glance upon Your sufferings
and see how great is the worth of that Precious Blood
that flows from your veins.

My God, at this hour,
close Your eyes to my want of merit
and open them to Your infinite merits.
Since You, dear Jesus,
have been pleased to die for my sins,
grant me forgiveness for them all,
that I may no longer feel their heavy burden,
which presses me to the earth.

My Jesus, help me, for I desire to become good,
no matter what it may cost.
Take away, destroy, root out completely,
all that You find in me that may be contrary to Your holy Will.
At the same time I beg You, O Jesus,
to enlighten me, that I may be able to walk in Your holy light.

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
