Prayer at the Gradual during the Catholic Mass
Prayer at the Gradual
How wonderful, O Lord,
is Thy name though the whole earth!
I will bless our Lord at all times:
His praise shall be ever in my mouth.
Be thou my God and my Protector;
in Thee alone will I put my trust;
let me not be confounded for ever.
The Gradual was sung between the Epistle and the Alleluia during the Catholic Mass. The Gradual sang or read may depend on the time of the Church year it is. This Prayer at the Gradual is a prayer you can pray silently during this part of the Mass. For more information and a history of the Gradual, The New Advent website has an extensive explanation.
The Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus: How to Practice the Sacred Heart Devotion by Rev. John Croiset shares the message Jesus gave to St. Margaret Mary about His Sacred Heart. Fr. Croiset was the spiritual director for St. Margaret Mary for 43 years. The book also contains St. Margaret Mary’s prayers to the Sacred Heart and the Sacred Heart Promises.
