Monthly Prayers

Monthly Prayers

A pattern in the Church exists where we may focus on an assigned Mystery of Christ each month. This focus gives us a specific aspect of our Faith to meditate on. The following monthly prayers can be heard on the Living Bread Radio Network throughout the day.


In the month of January we meditate on the Holy Name of Jesus.

Let us pray: Most merciful Jesus Your name is above all names.

We venerate Your Sacred Name and pray that we always follow the Second Commandment: Thou shall not take your name in vain. We pray to grant to us and ardent love for you and to imprint your Sacred Name on our hearts. May it be always in our minds and frequently on our lips, that it may be our defense in temptation, our refuge in danger and our consolation and support in the hour of our death.



In the month of February we meditate on the Sacred Passion.

Let us pray: Dear Lord Jesus, by Your Passion and Resurrection You brought life to the world. But the glory of the Resurrection came only after the sufferings of the Passion.

You laid down Your Life willingly and gave up everything for us.

Your body was broken and fastened to a Cross, Your clothing became the prize of soldiers, and Your Mother was entrusted to the beloved disciple.

Stretched out on the Cross, deprived of all earthly possessions and human aid, racked with pain and burning fever, You cried out to Your Father that the end had come.

You had accomplished the work given You, and You committed yourself into His hands.

Lord, teach me to accept all afflictions after the example You have given.

Let me place my death in Yours and my weakness in Your abandonment.

Take hold of me with your love, and let me offer myself to the Father with You so that I may rise withYou to eternal life.



The month of March is dedicated to St Joseph.

O Glorious St Joseph, you were chosen by God to be the foster father of Jesus, the most pure spouse of Mary ever Virgin, and the head of the Holy Family.Therefore it is with great confidence that I implore your powerful assistance for the whole Church on earth.Protect in a special manner, with true fatherly love, the Pope and all bishops and priests in communion with the See of Peter.Dear St Joseph, accept the offering of myself that I now make to you. I dedicate myself to your service, that you may ever be my father, my protector, and my guide in the way of salvation. Obtain for me great purity of heart and a fervent love for the interior life. May all my actions, after your example, be directed to the greater glory of God, and pray for me that I may share in the peace and joy of your holy death.




The month of April is dedicated to the Holy Eucharist.

Let us pray: O Lord Jesus, in order that merits of Your sacrifice on the Cross might be applied to every soul of all time, You willed that it should be renewed upon the alter.

At the Last Supper, You said: “Do this in remembrance of Me.”

By these words You gave Your apostles and their successors the power to consecrate bread and wine into Your sacred body and blood, to do what You Yourself did.

We believe that the Mass is both a sacrifice and a memorial,

reenacting Your Passion, Death, and Resurrection. Help us to realize that the Mass is the greatest gift of God to us and our greatest gift to God.



The month of May is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Holiest Virgin, with all my heart I venerate you above all the Angels and Saints in heaven as the daughter of the Eternal Father, and I consecrate to you my soul with all its powers.

Holiest Virgin, with all my heart I venerate you above all the Angels and Saints in heaven

As the Mother of the only-begotten Son, and I consecrate to you my body with all its senses.

Holiest Virgin, with all my heart I venerate you above all the Angels and Saints in heaven as the beloved Spouse of the Holy Spirit, and I consecrate to you my heart with all its afflictions.

Holiest Virgin, intercede for me with the Holy Trinity that I may obtain the graces I need for my salvation. To you I entrust all my worries and miseries, my life and the end of my life, so that all my actions may be directed by the Divine Plan.

Sorrowful Virgin, in union with you I will gladly suffer all the trials, misunderstandings, and pains that our Lord lets me endure. I offer them all to you in memory of your sorrows, so that every thought of my mind and every beat of my heart may be an act of compassion and love for you.

Mary most sorrowful, Mother of Christians, pray for us. Mother of love, of sorrows, and of mercy, pray for us.



The month of October is dedicated to The Most Holy Rosary.

Mary, most holy Virgin, you have revealed the treasures of graces hidden in the recitation of the Rosary. We offer it as an act of faith and as an act of thanksgiving to God for all His love, as well as an act of atonement for the sins of the world, especially our own. Inspire my heart with a sincere love for this devotion, so that by meditating on the mysteries of our redemption that are recalled in it, I may gather the fruits and obtain the special graces I ask of you, for the greater glory of God, for your honor, and for the good of my soul.

O Lord, receive into Your peace the souls of our brothers and sisters who labored for peace and justice on earth. Accept the sacrifices of those who gave their lives out of love for You. Look with mercy on all who showed goodwill to others, and grant them the peace they deserve.

Adorable Child Jesus, in You wisdom resides, Divinity dwells, and all eternal riches are found. You are the beauty of heaven, the delight of the Angels, and the salvation of mankind. I hereby render to You my faith and my homage with the shepherds, and my act of adoration with the Magi. I give myself entirely and without restriction into Your powerful hands. O lovable Child, grant that as a result of my total devotion to honoring the mystery of Your Divine Childhood, I may have the happiness through the meditation of Your Holy Mother and St Joseph to live all the rest of my life in the same manner as You. May I live in You and for You, so that not one moment of my life deviates from Your will in any respect, but listens to it and faithfully follows it in every way.
