PRAYERS IN HONOR OF MOTHER CLELIA
Through the intercession of Mother Clelia
In return, my God will provide for all your needs, according to his glory, in Jesus Christ.
PRAYER FOR THE CANONIZATION OF BLESSED CLELIA MERLONI
Lord Jesus, you made Blessed Clelia a steadfast apostle of the love of your most holy Heart and a lover of the Father’s will throughout her life of continual trial.
You filled her with humble trust, the key that opens the treasures of your infinite mercy.
We ask you to glorify her here on earth so that the beauty of her holiness might draw us to your most gentle Heart, her intercession assist us on our journey toward the ultimate good, and her example awaken in us the desire to see our triune God known, loved, and served.

PRAYER TO MOTHER CLELIA MERLONI IN THIS TIME OF PANDEMIC
Blessed Clelia Merloni,
lover of the Heart of God,
we entrust ourselves to your intercession.
Place before the Most Holy Trinity our confident prayer,
which pours out from our weary and overburdened hearts
in this time of pandemic.
Blessed Clelia Merloni,
you persevered in times of trial.
Help us to trust in the saving presence of God,
who urges us to live with active faith and civic responsibility.
Blessed Clelia Merloni,
you let yourself be gripped by Love’s contagion.
Support the doctors and healthcare workers fighting on the front lines,
relieve the suffering of the sick,
console those who are lonely and destitute
Bolster the charity of so many willing volunteers.
Blessed Clelia Merloni,
pray for us,
so that, filled with the joy of the Gospel,
we may be as a sip of water to all those whom we meet,
parched with thirst as they seek meaning in the desert of this world.
Don Nicola Galante
PRAYERS WRITTEN BY MOTHER CLELIA
Dialogue with God
Prayer is an elevation of our mind and our heart to heaven; it is an intimate conversation with God…
I have a God in me, and thus I am a temple, a sanctuary, an altar which holds the divinity surrounded by countless celestial spirits who adore him and render him their homage. I unite myself to you, O Blessed Spirits, I love and adore my Jesus with you. Ah, make up for, O celestial Spirits with the purity and the ardor of your homage and of your love, the weakness of my sentiments, let me unite my heart to yours and my spirit to yours to form a single heart and a single spirit to think of Jesus, to adore him, to love him, to praise him, if not as much as he deserves, at least as much as you are able.
TO JESUS IN THE EUCHARIST
O my beloved Eucharistic Jesus, give me, I pray, the true spirit of an adorer so that I may adore you day and night and may make reparation for the outrages you receive in the Eucharist.
I unite myself to all the holy souls who adore you on our altars, and to all those who will adore you throughout the ages, thus rendering my eternal homage, my love and my sorrow for having so offended you in this most marvelous mystery of your love.
I WANT TO BECOME A SAINT
O MARY, as spouse of your Jesus I am your daughter, Help me, therefore, because I WANT TO BECOME A SAINT. I know I shall have to love humility, oblivion, charity, to look for the last place everywhere and always to conquer and annihilate my pride, but it does not matter, I am resolute, I WANT TO BECOME A SAINT. I shall have to exercise extreme charity toward my neighbor, love him, bear with him and not complain when he may be unjust towards me, but nevertheless I WANT TO BECOME A SAINT. I know too that I shall always have to act in a spirit of faith, of penance. I shall have to do everything under the gaze of God who is watching me, I shall often be troubled and will have to resist all my natural inclinations, but nonetheless I WANT TO BECOME A SAINT. I shall have to make every effort in Chapel to pray fervently, avoid distractions and give good example by my demeanor and recollection, and no matter how painful it will be for me, I WANT TO BECOME A SAINT AT ANY COST. How can I become holy? Doing the best I can the actions of my day to day. Many saints in Heaven did nothing more than what I am doing here … I want to perform every action as though I afterwards would have to offer it in homage to God and to the Most Holy Virgin. Oh yes, my God, yes, I ALWAYS WANT TO DO ALL OF MY ACTIONS WELL. I WANT TO BECOME A SAINT!

MY GOD, I praise you and want to praise you with my lips, in my actions, by my sufferings.
MY GOD, receiving you in Holy Communion, I do not want for one instant to forget your presence.
MY GOD, I want you to be my nourishment… O Divine Eucharist, grant that I may seek you and always prepare a pure heart for you!
MY GOD, I shall obey you … Speak, Lord … Your unfaithful spouse is ready! …
MY GOD, I shall pray … much … I feel the need to pray. Give me love for prayer! …

MY GOD, I submit myself to you in everything … Oh! How wise, how good is your divine will ….
MY GOD, I shall be silent in moments of restlessness, ill temper and impatience.
MY GOD, I unite myself to your angels, to your saints, to my poor daughters who love you and like them,
I too want to love you!
