On my knees before the great multitude of heavenly witnesses, I offer myself soul
and body to Thee, Eternal Spirit
of God. I adore the brightness of Thy purity, the unerring keenness of Thy justice, and the might of Thy love. Thou art the Strength
and Light of my soul. In Thee I live and move and am. I desire never to grieve Thee by unfaithfulness to grace, and I pray with all my heart to be kept from the smallest sin
against Thee. Mercifully guard my every thought and grant that I may always watch for Thy light and listen to Thy voice and follow Thy gracious inspirations. I cling to Thee and give myself to Thee and ask Thee by Thy compassion to watch over me in my weakness. Holding the pierced Feet of Jesus
and looking at His Five Wounds and trusting in His Precious Blood
and adoring His opened Side and stricken Heart, I implore Thee Adorable Spirit, helper of my infirmity, so to keep me in Thy grace
that I may never sin
against Thee. Give me grace
O Holy Ghost, Spirit
of the Father and the Son, to say to Thee always and everywhere, Speak Lord, for Thy servant heareth. Amen.
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
