In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
Oh my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you. I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of Hell, but most of all, because they offend you, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of your grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.
Yahweh God took the man and settled him in the garden of Eden to cultivate and take care of it.

(Silent Reflection & Personal Prayer)
As you embark on a family vacation or other travels, invoke the powerful intercession of St. Christopher, patron of travelers.
St. Christopher is well known as the patron saint of travelers. This is due in large part to a medieval legend in which the saint carries the Christ Child over a river. If he was given the care of the baby Jesus during his travels, wouldn’t he be a perfect patron for our own adventures?
Here is a popular prayer to St. Christopher that invokes his intercession during our travels. Whether you are traveling on your own or with your family, pray to God through the intercession of St. Christopher. Many have attributed their safety to this fascinating saint and are at peace when they know he is with them.
POWERFUL PRAYER TO SAINT CHRISTOPHER FOR SAFE TRAVELS
Dear Saint Christopher, you have inherited a beautiful name, Christ-bearer, as a result of the wonderful legend
that while carrying people across a raging stream you also carried the Child Jesus.
Teach us to be true Christ-bearers to those who do not know Him.
Protect all of us that travel both near and far and petition Jesus to be with us always.
Give your warning sign if danger is near so that I may stop while the path is clear.
Be at my window and direct me through when the vision blurs from out of the blue.
Carry me safely to my destined place, like you carried Christ in your close embrace. Amen
St. Christopher, pray for us, and all those who invoke thy aid!
O most provident guardian of the Holy Family, defend the chosen children of Jesus Christ. Most beloved father, dispel the evil of falsehood and sin. Our most mighty protector, graciously assist us from heaven in our struggle with the powers of darkness. And just as you once saved the Child Jesus from mortal danger, so now defend God’s Holy Church from the snares of her enemies and from all adversity. Shield each one of us by your constant protection, so that, supported by your example and your help, we may be able to live a virtuous life, to die a holy death, and to obtain eternal happiness in heaven. Amen.
Saint Joseph answers Prayers!
If Saint Joseph does not grant graces, he would not be Saint Joseph!!
Through the intercession of Saint Joseph, guardian of the Holy Family, and St. Christopher, Patron of Travelers, may the Lord bless + us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life. Amen.
