Ever since the Columban Fathers began their mission in China, they have had to deal with and work with members of non-Christian faiths.

As they expanded into other mission countries, some of which were majority non-Christian, the Columbans encountered Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and many other religious groups.

Most merciful Jesus, 
from now on I want whatever You want. 
I have made up my mind to avoid all sin 
and to follow You with bravery and courage. 
I will try above all to correct myself and do better. 
O my Redeemer, 
strengthen my resolution by the merits 
of the Blood You shed for me on Calvary. 
I really want to make up for the past. 
With Your help, which I humbly ask for, 
I will try hard to do whatever You want of me.

Eternal Father,
I offer You the Sacred heart of Jesus,
with all Its love,
all Its sufferings and all Its merits;
To expiate all the sins I have committed this day,
and during all my life.

To purify the good I have done in my poor way this day,
and during all my life.

To make up for the good I ought to have done and
that I have neglected this day
and during all my life.

Remember, Heart of Jesus, 
Immaculate Heart of Mary, 
and you, O glorious St. Joseph, 
that no one has ever had recourse to your protection, 
or implored your assistance without obtaining relief. 
Animated with the utmost lively confidence, 
I come laden with the weight of my sins, 
to prostrate myself before you. 
O Merciful Heart of Jesus, 
Immaculate Heart of Mary, 
and you, O glorious St. Joseph, 
do not reject my prayer and petitions
but graciously hear and grant them.

Amen.
