Evening prayer
Oh my God, at the end of this day I thank you most heartedly for all the graces I have received from you. I am sorry that I have not made a better use of them.

Saint Joseph, my dear Guardian angel, and all you saints of God, pray for me. Sweet Jesus, have pity on all poor sinners, and save them from hell. Have mercy on the suffering souls in Purgatory. Amen
