I Beseech Thee,
most sweet Lord Jesus
that Thy Passion may be to me power
by which I may be strengthened,
protected and defended.
May Thy wounds be to me food
and drink by which I may be nourished,
inebriated, and delighted.
May the sprinkling of Thy Blood be to me
an ablution for all my sins.
May Thy death prove for me unfailing life,
and may Thy Cross be to me eternal glory.
In these be my refreshment,
joy, health, and delight of my heart:
Thou who livest and reignest forever.
Lord and giver of all life,
help us to value each person, created in love by you.
In your mercy, guide and assist our efforts
to promote the dignity and value
of all human life, born and unborn.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen. continue reading
