BY POPE CLEMENT IX
To Thee I desire to consecrate all my thoughts, words, actions, and sufferings; that henceforward I may think only of Thee, speak only of Thee, refer all my actions to Thy greater glory, and suffer willingly whatever Thou shalt appoint.
Lord, I desire that in all things Thy Will may be done, because it is Thy Will, and in the manner that Thou willest.
Grant that I may be ever attentive at my prayers, temperate at my meals, diligent at my employments, and constant in my resolutions.
Assist me that I may continually labor to overcome nature, to correspond with Thy Grace, to keep Thy commandments, and to work out my Salvation.
Grant that I may prepare for death, that I may fear Thy Judgments, that I may escape Hell, and in the end obtain Heaven; through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.
