The Little Book of the Most Holy Child Jesus/Other Prayers


Which may be used with Morning and Night Prayers, or at any other time.

Immaculate Virgin Mary, my Queen and my Mother, I wish to belong always wholly to Jesus and to thee.

For this reason I give thee my eyes, my ears, my tongue, my heart, my whole self. Take care of me, and above all things guard me from sin, especially from sin against purity, which is so dear to thee.

Bless me, Daughter of the Eternal Father, and do not suffer me to offend my good God by thought.

Bless me, Mother of the Eternal Son, and do not suffer me to offend my good God by word.

Bless me, Spouse of the Holy Ghost, and do not suffer me to offend my good God by deed or omission; but pray for me, that I may always love Him with all my heart, and may make Him to be loved by others.

So be it, O sweet, O faithful, O loving Virgin Mary.


Holy Joseph, Foster-father of the most Holy Child Jesus, by the love with which thou didst love Him whilst a Babe on earth, by the care thou didst take of Him, and by the great love thou hast to Him now in heaven, be my father and friend, pray for me now and when I die.


Bless the Lord, all ye His Angels, you who are great in power, who do His word and obey the words of His mouth; especially you, my dear Guardian-angel, whom our good God has given to me.

Thou, O God, hast given Thy angel to have charge of me, to keep me in all my ways. I thank Thee for this gift. Teach me ever to love this bright angel so dear to Thee, who, whilst he is minding me on earth, still beholds Thy face in heaven. Grant to me that I may enjoy his powerful protection all my life long, and then rejoice in his society together with all Thy holy angels for ever and ever, through Jesus Christ, &c.

Dear Angel, whom God has given me, bless Him, and teach me to love and bless Him too. I love thee, and I desire to love thee much more, because thou art so dear to God, and He has made me so dear to thee.

Guard and keep me from sin and danger, for Jesus' sake. When I think not of thee, forget not me.

Dear Angel, with what deep love thou didst adore the holy Child Jesus when He came into this world for me! Keep me back from doing anything which could grieve the Heart of that Holy Child, my Saviour and my God.


Glorious Archangel, Saint Michael, defend me in life and in death from the snares of the Evil One. Obtain for me the gift of humility, so that pride may never send me down into hell.


Lord Jesus, for love of me once a child, to do Thy Father's will Thou didst live on earth. That I might learn to obey, Thou wast obedient to Thy dear Mother Mary and to the holy Joseph, Thy Foster-father. Bless my dear parents, and have mercy on them. Spare them long to me, and grant that I may never give them pain or sorrow, but always obey them for Thy dear sake, Jesus Christ, my Lord.
