A favorite prayer

Almighty and everlasting God, Who in the abundance of Thy kindness art wont to go beyond our merits and our prayers: pour down Thy mercy on us: forgive us aught whereof our conscience is afraid, and grant us all we dare not ask in prayer.
That's the collect from yesterday's extraordinary-form Mass for the 11th Sunday after Pentecost.


  1. Amen. Thanks for sharing that with us. It reminds me that I really ought to pray each day from the Missal for the day's Mass, especially since I can't attend the traditional Mass anymore. Such beautiful prayers.

  2. I would like to post a favorite -Unfailing Prayer to St. Expedite.
    St. Expedite honored by the gratitude of those who have invoked thee at the last hour and for pressing cases, we pray thee to obtain from the all powerful goodness of God, by the Intercession of Mary Immaculate, (today or such a day) the grace we solicit with all submission to the Divine Will. Amen (Clearly express what you want and ask him to find a way to get it to you if it is God's will). Be sure to provide the offering you promised when he grants your request (fresh flowers beside his picture or statue, an ad in the newspaper thanking him so his name and glory will grow are a few examples of gifts). He is a very powerful saint and will grant your request but he will also take it back if you don't keep your promise.Thank you St. Expedite for numerous request granted to me.
