The love of Christ urges us onward
From the works by Saint Anthony Mary Claret, bishop (L’Egosimo vinto, Romae 1869, 60; Autobiography, Chapter 34)

Inflamed by the fire of the Holy Spirit, the apostolic missionaries have arrived, arrive and will arrive to the ends of the earth, from one pole to the other, to announce the divine Word; this is in such a manner as to be able for them to say to themselves with certainty the words of the apostle Saint Paul: the love of Christ urges us onward.

The love of Christ stimulates and urges us to run and to fly with the wings of holy zeal. The true loving person loves God and his neighbor. The person full of true holy zeal is that same lover, yet to a superior degree, depending on the degrees of love; in such a way that, when the more one has love, the more by a greater zeal is one compelled to act. And, if one dos not have zeal, it is a certain sign that in his heart the flame of love and charity is extinguished. He or she that has zeal desires and procures, through all possible means, that God be always more known, more loved and served in this life and the next, since this sacred love has no limit.

The same is practiced with his or her neighbor, desiring and procuring that all be happy in this world and happy and blessed in the next; that all be saved, that no one be eternally lost; that nobody offend God and, lastly, that anybody find themselves in even a single moment in sin. This is just as we see it with the holy apostles and within anybody that is gifted with the apostolic spirit.

I say this to myself: a son of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is a man that burns in charity and who embraces all wherever he goes. He desires efficiently and procures, through all available means, to inflame the entire world in the fire of divine love. Nothing deters him; he delights in privations, he takes on fully all his works and tasks; he embraces sacrifices, is complacent with calumnies and is overjoyed in his or her torments. He thinks of nothing else but on how he will follow and imitate Jesus Christ when he works, suffers and procures always and only the most greatest glory of God and the salvation of souls.


PRAYER
O God, who granted to Your bishop Saint Anthony Mary Claret an admirable charity and valor so as to announce the Gospel to the people, grant us, through his intercession that, always seeking Your will in all things, we work generously to gain our brothers and sisters for Christ. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit and is God, for ever and ever. Amen

OUR FATHER

Our Father, Who Art In Heaven
Hallowed Be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy Will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
Liberate us from all temptation[*]
And deliver us from all evil. Amen



[*] Liberate us is in keeping with the original Latin text.
       God usually does not "lead us" to temptation
       (unless we are tested),
       but gives us the grace to overcome and/or resist it

HAIL MARY

Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art though among women,
And blessed is the fruit
Of thy womb, Jesus.
 
Holy Mary, Mary of God
Pray for us sinners
Now, and in the hour
Of our death. Amen

APOSTLE'S CREED

I believe in God, the Father Almighty Creator of Heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ, His Only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the
[work and grace of the] Holy Ghost,[*]
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into the Dead.[**]
On the third day, He rose again;
He ascended into Heaven,
And sits at the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge
the living and the dead.
 
I believe in the Holy Ghost,[*]
The Holy Catholic Church,
The communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins.
The resurrection of the body,
And life everlasting. Amen


[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.
[**] the Dead: "inferi", the underworld or the dead in Latin.

DE PROFUNDIS

Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord:
Lord, hear my voice.
Let Thine ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplication.

If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities:
Lord, who shall abide it.
For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness:
and because of Thy law,
I have waited for Thee, O Lord.

My soul hath waited on His word:
my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning-watch even until night,
let Israel hope in the Lord.

For with the Lord there is mercy:
and with Him plenteous redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel
from all her iniquities.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost[*],
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen

[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.

"Requiem aeternam" (Eternal Rest) three times a day.

Let us pray:
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all
the faithful, we beseech Thee to grant
to the souls of Thy servants the remission
of their sins, so that by our prayers
they may obtain pardon for which they long.
O Lord, who lives and reigns,
world without end. Amen

May they rest in peace. Amen

PADRE NUESTRO

Padre Nuestro,
que estas en los Cielos
Santificado sea Tu Nombre;
Venga a nosotros tu Reino;
Hágase Tu Voluntad
en la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día;
Perdona nuestras ofensas,
Como también nosotros
perdonamos a los que nos ofenden,
No nos dejes caer en la tentación,
y líbranos del mal. Amén

CREDO

Creo en Dios, Padre Todopoderoso,
Creador del cielo y de la tierra.
Creo en Jesucristo,
Su único Hijo, Nuestro Señor,
Que fue concebido por obra
y gracia del Espíritu Santo,
Nació de la Santa María Virgen;
Padeció bajo el poder de Poncio Pilato,
Fue crucificado, muerto y sepultado,
Descendió a los infiernos,
Al tercer día resucitó de entre los muertos,
Subió a los cielos
Y está sentado a la derecha de Dios,
Padre Todopoderoso.
Desde allí ha de venir a juzgar
a los vivos y a los muertos.

Creo en el Espíritu Santo,
La Santa Iglesia Católica,
La comunión de los santos,
El perdón de los pecados,
La resurrección de la carne
Y la vida eterna. Amén

DE PROFUNDIS

Desde lo hondo a Ti grito, Señor; Señor,
escucha mi voz;
Estén Tus oidos atentos
a la voz de mi súplica.

Si llevas cuenta de los delitos, Señor,
¿quién podrá resistir?
Pero de ti procede el perdón,
y así infundes respeto.
Mi alma espera en el Señor.

Espera en su palabra;
mi alma aguarda al Señor,
más que el centinela la aurora.
Aguarda Israel al Señor.

Como el centinela la aurora;
porque del Señor viene la misericordia.
la redención copiosa;
y Él redimirá a Israel de todos sus delitos.

Gloria al Padre, al Hijo y al
Espíritu Santo,
como es desde el principio,
es ahora y será por los siglos de los siglos.
