Dedication of the Day
(Prayer Composed by Servant of God Archbishop Mar Ivanios)
O Merciful God, to You we dedicate this day. We offer You the Holy Eucharistic celebrations, prayers, and all the good works performed today in the churches throughout the world. We also offer You our petitions, joys, sorrows and all our endeavors. Guide us today along your path. May your power and grace sustain us today. Grant that all our thoughts, words and actions bring honor to You. O Lord, keep us away from the delusions of the evil one and from temptations to sin. O Merciful Lord, abide in front and behind us, to our right and to our left, above us and below us, within us and around us. Be our protection and sanctify us. May the prayers and blessings of the Mother of God and all the saints be with us now and forever. Amen.
O Blessed Trinity, assist us with your eternal grace and power. Amen.
O Gracious Lord, may your salvation be with us always. Amen.
Prayer for the Canonization of Mar Ivanios
God, our Father, who brought the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church into the fullness of the Catholic communion and appointed Mar Ivanios as her shepherd in your abundant mercy, glorify your servant Mar Ivanios according to Your holy will. You formed him to love the Church and to be our model for us in loving You and obtaining eternal life. Grant that the fragrance of his holiness and the warmth of his love may be a model to all humanity and that the Universal Catholic Church and the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church in particular may obtain another intercessor in heaven.
1x Our Father, who art in heaven…
1x Hail Mary, full of grace …
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
