Opening Prayer for each day:
Hail, and blessed be the hour and moment
In which the Son of God was born

To hear my prayers and grant my petitions

Why do you confuse yourselves by worrying?

blind, complete surrender to me
produces the effect that you desire
and resolves all difficult situations. More…
