O Father of Mercies
O PATER misericordiarum, fons omnis boni, te supplex exoro per sacratissimum tuique amantissimum Cor Iesu dilectissimi Filii tui, Domini et Redemptoris nostri, in quo tibi semper bene complaces, dignare concedere mihi gratiam vivae fidei, firmae spei et ardentis caritatis erga te et proximum meum: insuper gratiam vere dolendi de omnibus peccatis meis una cum firmissimo proposito te in posterum numquam offendendi; ut secundum divinum beneplacitum tuum semper vivere, voluntatem tuam sanctissimam corde magno et animo volenti in omnibus adimplere, et in amore tuo usque ad finem vitae meae perseverare valeam. Amen. O FATHER of mercies, from whom cometh all that is good, I offer my humble petitions unto Thee through the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy dearly beloved Son, our Lord and Redeemer, in whom Thou art always well pleased and who loves Thee so much. Grant me the grace of a lively faith, a firm hope and an ardent charity toward Thee and toward my neighbor. Grant me also the grace to be truly penitent for all my sins together with a firm purpose of never offending Thee again; so that I may be enabled to live always according to Thy divine good-pleasure, to do Thy most holy will in all things with a generous and willing heart, and to persevere in Thy love even to the end of my life. Amen.
