My dear Redeemer,
it is not from custom or human respect
that I come to receive You;
but it is solely to love and be united with You,
to be delivered from my miseries,
to clothe myself with Your virtues,
to strengthen myself against my enemies;
O dear Jesus,
I humbly implore You to grant Your special graces to our family.
May our home be the shrine of peace, purity, love, labor and faith.
I beg You, dear Jesus, to protect and bless all of us,
absent and present, living and dead.
My Lord God,
even now I accept at Your hands,
cheerfully and willingly,
with all its anxieties,
pains and sufferings,
whatever kind of death
it shall please You to be mine.
Jesus, Son of God and our Savior,
have mercy on all who wound your Sacred Heart by sin,
unfaithfulness and neglect.
O loving Heart of Jesus,
broken by our ingratitude,
pierced by our sins, yet loving us still,
accept in reparation the suffering
Thank You, Lord, for bringing us together.
May we learn to appreciate one another more and more.
May we cherish the gift of each other.
May we share our feelings openly and honestly.
May we listen not only with our ears and minds
but also with our hearts.
Jesus, You have given Yourself to me,
now let me give myself to You;
I give You my body,
that it may be chaste and pure.
I give You my soul,
that it may always love You.
I give You every thought, word,
and deed of my life,
and I offer all
I consecrate my mind to you,
that you may enlighten me in all things,
with the light of faith;
that you may keep it full of love for Jesus and Mary;
my will, that you may forever
keep it submissive to that of God;
and my body,
O my God!
Who has graciously promised every blessing,
even Heaven itself,
through Jesus Christ,
to those who keep Your commandments;
relying on Your infinite power,
goodness and mercy,
and confiding in Your sacred promises,
O God, by whose mercy the faithful departed find rest,
look kindly on your departed veterans who gave their
lives in the service of their country.
Grant that through the passion, death, and resurrection of your Son
they may share in the joy of your heavenly kingdom
Merciful Father, I am guilty of sin.
I confess my sins before you and I am sorry for them.
Your promises are just;
therefore I trust that you will forgive me my sins
and cleanse me from every stain of sin.
Jesus Himself is the proposition for my sins
O everlasting and Triune God,
I consecrate myself wholly to you today.
Let all my days offer you ceaseless praise,
My hands move to the rhythm of your impulses,
My feet be swift in your service,
My voice sing constantly of you,
My lips proclaim your message,
Even though I can be so proud,
You humbled Yourself on a cross for me.
Even though I can be so selfish,
You rose to share Your life with me.
A love so great, so deep!
A heart so humble, so generous!
Oh dear Sacred Heart of Jesus,
I give You my whole heart.
I see Your Heart on fire for love of me.
I want to be in this fiery furnace
and know the love of God.
Take me, Jesus.
Use me as Your little servant
to spread Your love to this world.
Dear Holy Spirit,
You are my friend.
I give You myself.
I ask You to dwell deeply inside of me
and make me holy.
I want to know the fire of God's love.
I want to love God with all my heart.
