SEVEN DAILY HABITS

What rank are you in God’s Army?


We liked this idea of connecting the daily practises with a challenge

as well as a potential development "competition" to Honour Our Lord.


We structured our daily Step-by-Step Commander Cross Rosary to contain

a higher rank in God's Army!


What rank are you (honest) now?

What rank is your target?

"The more you pour yourself into your prayer life, the more God will entrust His missions to you and, therefore, the more grace He will pour into your efforts."


Private           –    practices one daily habit
Sergeant        –    practices two daily habits
Lieutenant    –    practices three daily habits
Captain          –   practices four daily habits
Major             –    practices five daily habits
Colonel          –    practices six daily habits 
General          –    practices all seven daily habits


The Commander Cross Rosary offers four of the daily practises.


Besides the obvious Rosary, it also contain an Offering, Mental Meditation, Spiritual Reading.

The Angelus is always included in the booklet and on the website.

Idea taken from US Grace Force.com

1. Morning Offering


O Jesus, 
through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, 
I offer You my prayers, works, 
joys and sufferings of this day

for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart, 
in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
throughout the world, 
in reparation for my sins, 
for the intentions of all my relatives and friends, 
and in particular for the Raccolta intentions of the Holy Father.

Amen

2. Mental prayer

Prayer is the raising of one's mind and heart to God


O Jesus,

My Lord and my God, I firmly believe

that you are here, that you see me, that you hear me.

I adore you with profound reverence,

I ask your pardon for my sins, and the grace to make this time of prayer fruitful.

My immaculate Mother, Saint Joseph my father and lord, my guardian angel, intercede for me.

Amen.
