Some Useful Prayers

A Prayer Before Connecting to the Internet
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf

Latin

Oratio ante colligationem in interrete:
Omni potens aeterne Deus,
qui secundum imaginem Tuam nos plasmasti
et omnia bona, vera, et pulchra,
praesertim in divi na persona Unigeniti Fi lii Tui
Domini nostri Iesu Christi, quaerere iussi sti,
praesta, quaesumus,
ut, per intercessionem Sancti Isidori, Epi scopi et Doctoris,
in peregrinationibus per interrete,
et manus oculosque ad quae Tibi sunt placita intendamus
et omnes quos conveni mus cum caritate ac patientia accipiamus.
Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

English

A prayer before logging onto the internet:
Almighty and eternal God,
who created us in Thy image
and bade us to seek after all that is good, true and beautiful,
especially in the divine person of Thy Only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
grant, we beseech Thee,
that, through the intercession of Saint Isidore, Bishop and Doctor,
during our journeys through the internet
we will direct our hands and eyes only to that which is pleasing to Thee
and treat with charity and patience all those souls whom we encounter.
Through Christ our Lord.   Amen.
