Lord Jesus, a new day is breaking and the extravagance of your power subtly dawns upon me. In the freshness of every morning, I sense another parcel of your Creation, which is but the overflow upon us of your superabundant life and love.
I take this day as a gift from you, O Lord, and readily accept whatever it will bring me: sunshine or rain, gladness or pain. I hasten to thank you for all the favors and graces you are going to shower on me during this coming day. I give you thanks for all my brothers and sisters who fail to do so, as if a bird could refuse to sing or a flower to smell good.
My prayer soars to you, O Lord, in order to make every moment of this day a praise to you, an act of adoration, a homage from my heart, all my soul, all my mind and all my strength. I, likewise, want to love my neighbor.
May this day be a seed of eternal life!
Saint Ann, I love and venerate you. Lend me a hand with your daughter, the virgin Mary, so that I may avoid sin, love my God and serve my neighbor.
