The Apostleship of Prayer is a devotion that allows one to offer the entire day for the intentions of the Sacred Heart of Jesus as he communicated to Saint Margaret Mary Alocoque; for the salvation of souls, the reparation of sin, the reunion of all Christians. Also included in this devotion is the Holy Father's monthly particular and missionary intention.
Through the Morning Offering one begins the day by giving to the Lord everything in that day: prayers, works, joys, and sufferings. The value in making this offering is that nothing of the day is left out. All is given to Jesus. The day becomes as Saint Paul recommends:
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. (Rom.12:1)
Pope Pius XII called the Apostleship of Prayer “the sum total of Christian perfection”, and every pope since Pope Leo XIII in the 1880s has promoted the Daily Offering. Today there are millions who make this Daily Offering, which can also be found at www.apostleshipofprayer.org, along with the Holy Father's monthly intentions.
