Act of Petition – St. Augustine link
Give me yourself, O my God, give yourself to me.
Behold I love you, and if my love is too weak a thing, grant me to love you more strongly.
I cannot measure my love to know how much it falls short of being sufficient,
but let my soul hasten to your embrace and never be turned away until it is hidden in the secret shelter of your presence.
This only do I know, that it is not good for me when you are not with me, when you are only outside me.
I want you in my very self. All the plenty in the world which is not my God is utter want.
Prayer of St Richard link
Thanks be to you, our Lord Jesus Christ, for all the benefits which you have given us,
for all the pains and insults which you have borne for us.
Most merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother,
may we know you more clearly, love you more dearly,
and follow you more nearly, day by day.
Receive Grace – John Wesley link
O God, seeing as there is in Christ Jesus an infinite fullness of all that we can want or desire,
May we all receive from him, grace upon grace; grace to pardon our sins, and subdue our iniquities;
to justify our persons and to sanctify our souls; and to complete that holy change, that renewal of our hearts,
Which will enable us to be transformed into the blessed image in which you created us.
O make us all acceptable to be partakers of the inheritance of your saints in light.
Benediction- St. Ethelwold link
May God the Father bless us,
may Christ take care of us,
the Holy Ghost enlighten us all the days of our life.
The Lord be our defender and keeper of body and soul,
both now and for ever, to the ages of ages.
