Our Morning Offering – 27 January

Excerpt from St Angela Merici’s Daily Prayer

My God, do Thou enlighten the darkness of my heart
and give me grace to die
rather than ever offend Thy divine Majesty.
Place a guard around my affections and my thoughts,
so that they may never turn aside from Thee and Thy ways
and banish me not from Thy presence,
in which afflicted hearts find such consolation.
My God, I am filled with grief on seeing
I cannot look into the innermost secrets of my heart,
without being ashamed to raise my eyes to heaven,
believing myself worthy to be cast into hell;
and when I see within myself so many faults,
deformities, unworthiness and sin,
I feel myself drawn by day and night,
in my going forth, or at home, at work,
or communing with my thoughts
to pray with all my strength
and to beg of Thee, O my God,
mercy and time to do penance.
Vouchsafe then, O Lord, I beseech Thee,
to forgive me the offences
and sins into which I have fallen
and I beseech Thee also to pardon
the sins of my parents,
relations and friends and those of the whole world;
and I beg of Thee by Thy holy Passion,
by Thy precious blood shed for love of us,
by Thy holy name of Jesus,
that this adorable name may be blessed
in heaven and on earth
and by the heavenly choirs of angels and archangels.
I regret, O Lord, that I have begun so late
to serve Thy divine Majesty.
Accept, I beseech Thee, O Lord,
all my thoughts, words and actions,
together with my whole being;
and placing all at the feet of Thy divine Majesty,
I beg Thee to accept them,
unworthy as I am of such a favour. Amen
