Our Morning Offering – 23 December – The Fourth Sunday of Advent
Act of Oblation before Holy Communion
By Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471)
Lord, all things in heaven and on earth
I desire to give myself to You
in willing abandonment
and to remain Yours forever.
Lord, in simplicity of heart,
I offer myself to You this day,
always to be Your obedient servant
and a sacrifice of perpetual praise.
Accept me with the Holy Sacrifice
of Your precious Body,
which I offer You today
in the presence of Your assisting Angels,
for my salvation
and that of all Your people.
