Pilgrimage Prayers & Songs


  • ROSARY

    IN THE NAME of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

    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 Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into Hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father almighty. He shall come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

    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. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

    HAIL MARY, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

    GLORY BE to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

    O MY JESUS, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell; lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy. Amen.

    HAIL HOLY QUEEN, mother of mercy; our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us. And after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.

    O GOD, WHOSE only-begotten Son by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; grant, we beseech Thee, that by meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

  • DIVINE MERCY

    St. Faustina

    Oh what great graces I will grant to souls who say this chaplet; the very depths of My tender mercy are stirred for the sake of those who say the chaplet. Write down these words, My daughter: Speak to the world about My mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy; let them profit from the Blood and Water which gushed forth for them.

    Diary of St. Faustina - (848)

    The Chaplet of Mercy is recited using ordinary rosary beads of five decades.

    Jesus to St. Faustina: My daughter, encourage souls to say the chaplet which I have given you. It pleases Me to grant everything they ask of Me by saying the chaplet. When hardened sinners say it, I will fill their souls with peace, and the hour of their death will be a happy one. “ (Diary #1541)

    “Oh what great graces I will grant to souls who say this chaplet; the very depths of My tender mercy are stirred for the sake of those who say the chaplet. Write down these words, My daughter: Speak to the world about My mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy; let them profit from the Blood and Water which gushed forth for them.” (Diary #848)

    Opening Prayer: You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us. (Diary #1319)

    O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of Mercy for us, I trust in You. (Diary #187)

    Pray one Our Father, Hail Mary, and Apostles Creed.

    On the Large Beads: Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ / in atone- ment for our sins and those of the whole world.

    On the Small Beads: For the sake of His sorrowful Passion / have mercy on us and the whole world.

    Conclude with: Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world. (3 times)

    Let us pray: Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us; that in difficult moments we might not despair, nor become despon- dent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your Holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen. (Diary #950)

    Jesus, I trust in You! (3 times)

    Mother of Sorrows, pray for us. St. Faustina, pray for us.

  • PREPARE FOR CONFESSION

    If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

    1 John 1:8
    Act of Contrition

    O my God, I am heartfully sorry for having offended thee, and I detest all my sins because of Thy just punishment, but most of all because I have offended Thee my God, Who is all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to sin no more, and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.

    Examination of Conscience:
    “We have only one evil to fear and that is sin” - St. Alphonsus Liguori

    Definition of a Mortal Sin:
    For a sin to be mortal, three conditions must together be met: “Mortal sin is sin whose object is grave matter, and which is also committed with full knowledge and deliberate consent”

    Nine ways of being an accessory to another’s sin:

    1. By counsel (to give advice, one’s opinion or instructions.)
    2. By command (to demand, to order, such as in the military.)
    3. By consent (to give permission, to approve, to agree to.)
    4. By provocation (to dare.)
    5. By praise or flattery (to cheer, to applaud, to commend.)
    6. By concealment (to hide the action, to cover-up)
    7. By partaking (to take part, to participate.)
    8. By silence (by playing dumb, by remaining quiet.)
    9. By defense of the ill done (to justify, to argue in favour.)

    Note: To participate in the sins of another person means that one is just as guilty of the sin as the one who committed them. For example, if you encourage someone to have an abortion, you are guilty of the sin of abor- tion.

    The Three Theological Virtues

    Faith:

    Charity:

    The Four Cardinal Virtues

    Prudence:

    Justice:

    Prayer - The Holy Land
  • HOW TO MAKE A HOLY HOUR

    So, you could not stay awake with Me for even an hour? Be on guard, and pray that you may not undergo the test (Mt 26:40-41).

    There are different ways to “watch one hour” with the Lord. One of the most powerful and fruitful ways is to spend an hour in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. We call this Holy Hour because it is an hour spend in the presence of the Holy Eucharist: Christ, Himself, the One who alone is Holy.

    Even a few short moments of this silent presence to the Lord is a precious treasure, for it is in this silence that the Lord speaks to us. We all need “radiation therapy” - and to receive it we only need to be present, just as in sun bathing we only need to be present to the ultraviolet radiation of the sun.

    Minute-by-Minute Guide

    :00-:05 – Begin
    First 5 Minutes: Ask the Holy Spirit to help you, then make acts of faith, hope and charity. Tell God how you believe, trust and love him. Ask for more faith, hope and love.

    Quick tip: There are great prayers to the Holy Spirit and Acts of Faith, Hope and Love in the Compendium.

    :05-:15 – Adoration
    Next 10 Minutes: Adore God. He holds the universe like a seed in the palm of his hand. He is all powerful, all good, more beautiful than we can imagine, and more real than the small things that we grasp so easily. Imagine Christ sitting with you.

    Tell him: “Oh my God, I adore your divine greatness from the depths of my littleness; you are so great, and I am so small.” or “Glory be …” Repeat as long as necessary.

    Quick Tip: Try the Te Deum in the Compendium. Scriptural helps for adoration—Exodus 33:18-23; Song of Songs 2:8-17; Matthew 2:1-11; John 1:1-18; Colossians 1:15-20; Philippians, 2:6-11.

    :15-:25 – Contrition
    Next 10 Minutes: Offer reparation. It’s not your love for God, but his for you that saves. Examine your conscience. Offer reparation for the sins of the world. Pray: “Oh my Jesus, I am so sorry. Forgive me.” (Imagine Jesus on the cross; kiss each wound.)

    Quick tip: Scriptures for contrition—1Corinthians 13:4-7; Colossians 3:5-10; 1 Timothy 1:12-17; James 3:2-12; 1 John 1:5-2:6; Penitential Psalms: 6, 32, 38, 51, 102, 130, 142.

    :25-:40 – Meditation
    Next 15 Minutes: Contemplate God’s action. You may wish to meditatively pray the Stations of the Cross or a Rosary. Or:

    Scriptural meditation. Read a brief Gospel passage. Imagine the scene. Notice Christ’s reactions. Think of three ways the passage applies to your own life. Meditate on each line.

    Doctrinal meditation. Read Scripture or Catechism passages that apply to a doctrine of the Church. Appreciate God’s plan and find ways it applies to you. (Perhaps: Sun, Resurrection; Mon, Incarnation; Tues, Mercy/confession; Wed, Holy Spirit; Thurs, Eucharist; Fri, Passion; Sat., Mary).

    Life meditation. Or, deepening your examination of conscience, look at your own life. Which kind of pride do you most fall into? Selfishness (valuing yourself most), Vanity (valuing others opinions most), Sensuality (valuing comforts most). Pray for the opposite virtues: Charity (serving others first), Fidelity (putting Christ’s opinion first), Discipline (accepting your crosses).

    :40-:50 – Thanksgiving
    Next 10 Minutes: Express gratitude for all God’s gifts. He didn’t just create you, he sustains your existence out of love in every moment.

    Thank him for literally everything, and be specific: food, shelter, clothing, health, family, friends, teachers, coworkers, home, and most of all spiritual gifts — faith, hope, love, this time of prayer, the Catholic faith, the disciples who reached you.

    Thank God for answers to prayer. Thank him for crosses. Thank him for creating you and caring so much for you that he died for you.

    Quick tip: Scriptures for thanksgiving – Genesis 1; Genesis 8:15-22; Job 1:13-22; Daniel 3:46 ff.; Matthew 6:25-34; Luke 17:11-19; Psalms: 8, 65, 66, 100, 111.

    :50-:55 – Petition God
    Next 5 Minutes: Ask God for what you and others need. He is the king of the universe. He’s in control, even when it isn’t obvious.

    Pray for: The Church, the pope’s intentions, for those who are suffering, for priests and bishops, for religious, for vocations, for your country, your family, for what you need most in the spiritual life. Pray for peace and the protection of the institution of the family. Pray for those who have asked for prayers.

    :55-1:00
    Final 5 Minutes: Make a resolution to act on a light of the Holy Spirit you received: something doable and checkable.

    Ask the Blessed Mother to help you, with Marian prayers.

    Whom shall I send?

    I, the Lord of wind and flame,
    I will tend the poor and lame.
    I will set a feast for them,
    My hand will save
    Finest bread I will provide,
    Till their hearts be satisfied.
    I will give My life to them,
    Whom shall I send?

    Here I am Lord, Is it I Lord?
    I have heard You calling in the night.
    I will go Lord, if You lead me.
    I will hold Your people in my heart.

    (10) Be Not Afraid

    You shall cross the barren desert
    But you shall not die of thirst
    You shall wander far in safety
    Though you do not know the way.

    You shall speak your words in foreign lands
    And all will understand
    You shall see the face of God and live.

    Be not afraid
    I go before you always
    Come follow Me
    And I WILL give you rest.

    If you pass through raging waters
    In the sea, you shall not drown
    If you walk amidst the burning flames
    You shall not be harmed.

    If you stand before the pow’r of hell
    And death is at your side
    Know that I am with you, through it all.

    Be not afraid
    I go before you always
    Come follow Me
    And I will give you rest.

    Blessed are your poor
    For the Kingdom shall be theirs
    Blest are you that weep and mourn
    for one day you shall laugh.

    And if wicked tongues insult and hate you
    All because of Me
    Blessed, blessed are you!

    Be not afraid
    I go before you always
    Come follow Me
    and I WILL GIVE you rest...

    (11) On Eagles Wings

    You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord,
    Who abide in His shadow for life,
    Say to the Lord, “My Refuge,
    My Rock in Whom I trust.”

    And He will raise you up on eagle’s wings,
    Bear you on the breath of dawn,
    Make you to shine like the sun,
    And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
    The snare of the fowler will never capture you,
    And famine will bring you no fear;
    Under His Wings your refuge,
    His faithfulness your shield.

    And He will raise you up on eagle’s wings,
    Bear you on the breath of dawn,
    Make you to shine like the sun,
    And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
    You need not fear the terror of the night,
    Nor the arrow that flies by day,
    Though thousands fall about you,
    Near you it shall not come.

    And He will raise you up on eagle’s wings,
    Bear you on the breath of dawn,
    Make you to shine like the sun,
    And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
    For to His angels He’s given a command,
    To guard you in all of your ways,
    Upon their hands they will bear you up,
    Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

    And He will raise you up on eagle’s wings,
    Bear you on the breath of dawn,
    Make you to shine like the sun,
    And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
    And hold you in the palm of His Hand.

    We are Your pilgrims, and are on our way to You.
    Anoint us to do Your will as we travel on this journey.

    Help us give a hand of friendship and love to fellow pilgrims.
    May the joy of your dwelling in us draw us closer to each other and to You.

    Give us strength to persevere when we get too tired.
    Give us understanding of different nationalities, cultures, wealth, poverty and mentalities. Give us patience and grace to accept diversity in food, services and people that we encounter.

    Remind us to offer gratitude, to our hosts, tour guides, hotel and airline personnel
    Expand our vision to recognize Your plan.
    Warm our hearts by the flame of Your love, so that we may share it with others too.

    Open our lips so that we can speak Your Word and words of love.
    Expand our arms so that we can embrace each other and all who need hugs
    Speak to us so that we may discern the role that You have for us.
    Send us breeze when it gets too hot, and sunshine when it’s raining hard.
    Help us to love, pray, forgive, embrace, see and discover.

    Help us to remember:
    We responded to Your calling to make this journey,
    we are Your pilgrims, going towards You and for You.

    If we feel lonely, we will remember, that we are not alone,
    as with each step we take You are right alongside of us.

    And if at times, the road is too rocky, if the weather gets too stormy,
    if it gets dark, if our hearts grow numb, heavy, empty, shivering, broken,
    then, especially then, help us to remember- how much You love us.

    We promise to remember, that You hold our souls.
    And always, God, help us to live according to your will.

    Amen
