Our Morning Offering – 19 January – Second Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A
I Beseech Thee, Most Sweet Lord Jesus Christ
Obsecro te, dulcissime Domine
Prayer of Thanksgiving After Holy Mass
I beseech Thee, most sweet Lord Jesus Christ,
that Thy Passion, may be to me power
by which I may be strengthened,
protected and defended.
May Thy wounds,
be to me food and drink
by which I may be nourished,
inebriated and delighted.
May the sprinkling of Thy Blood,
be to me an ablution for all my sins.
May Thy death,
prove for me unfailing life,
and may Thy Cross,
be to me eternal glory.
In these, be my refreshment, joy, health
and delight of my heart,
Thou who lives and reigns forever.
OBSECRO TE, DULCISSIME DOMINE IESU CHRISTE
Obsecro te, dulcissime Domine Iesu Christe,
ut passio tua sit mihi
virtus, qua muniar, protegar, atque defendar.
Vulnera tua sint mihi cibus potusque,
quibus pascar inebrier atque delecter.
Aspersio Sanguinis tui sit mihi
ablutio omnium delictorum meorum.
Mors tua sit mihi vita indeficiens,
crux sit mihi gloria sempiterna.
In his sit mihi refectio, exsultatio, sanitas et dulcedo cordis mei:
Qui vivis et regnas in saecula saeculorum.
