Our Morning Offering – 16 December – Thursday of the Third week of Advent
O Lord, Into Your Hands
Morning Offering of
St Edmund Campion SJ (1540-1581)
O Lord, into Your hands
and into the hands of Your holy Angels,
this day I entrust my soul,
my relatives, my benefactors,
my friends and enemies
and all Your Catholic people.
O Lord, by the merits and prayers
of the BlessedVirgin Mary
and of all Your Saints,
keep us today from all evil and unruly desires,
from all sins and temptations of the devil,
from a sudden and unprovided death
and from the pains of hell.
Enlighten my heart with the
grace of Your Holy Spirit.
Grant that I may ever be obedient
to Your commandments.
Let me never be separated from You, O Jesus,
who live and reign with God the Father
and the same Holy Spirit forever.
