BLESSED
FRANCISCO AND JACINTA MARTO

MASS 1

ENTRANCE ANTIPHON
Unless you change and become like little children,
you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

OPENING PRAYER
God of infinite goodness
You love the innocent and exalt the humble,
grant that, in imitation of  Blessed Francisco and Jacinta,
we may serve You with purity of heart
and so be worthy to enter the kingdom of heaven.

Through Our Lord Jesus Christ…

PRAYER OVER THE GIFTS
We humbly beseech You, Lord,
accept the homage of our prayers and sacrifices,
which we offer for the forgiveness of our faults
and for the conversion of sinners.
Through Our Lord Jesus Christ…

COMMUNION ANTIPHON cf. Mt 11, 25
Blessed are You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
because You have revealed to the little ones the mysteries of the kingdom.

PRAYER AFTER COMMUNION
Through this Divine Sacrament, which we have received, Lord,
inflame in us that wondrous love
which inspired Blessed Francisco and Jacinta
to give themselves entirely to You
and to offer themselves in love for the salvation of all men.
Through Our Lord Jesus Christ…
