I give and surrender myself to You O Holy One

Praised be Jesus Christ!! Now and Forever!!

I have seen this prayer before. Today when I checked my inbox it had been sent to me from across the ocean. Thanks Dennis -I will remember you in my next Holy Hour.
I am working still on the template for the new blog but it is taking a bit longer than I had planned until then I will still post on this one.
Omnia Pro Iesu Per Mariam!!

"See, O merciful God, what return
I, your thankless servant, have made
for the innumerable favors
and the wonderful love you have shown me!
What wrongs I have done, what good left undone!
Wash away, I beg you, these faults and stains
with your precious blood, most kind Redeemer,
and make up for my poverty by applying your merits.
Give me the protection I need to amend my life.
I give and surrender myself wholly to you,
and offer you all I possess,
with the prayer that you bestow your grace on me,
so that I may be able to devote and employ
all the thinking power of my mind
and the strength of my body in your holy service,
who are God blessed for ever and ever. Amen."
+ St. Peter Canisius, SJ
