Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me. Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me. Within thy wounds hide me.
Suffer me not to be separated from thee. From the malicious enemy defend me.
In the hour of my death call me. And bid me come to thee,
That with thy saints I may praise thee for ever and ever. Amen.
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 livest and reignest forever. Amen.
I adore Thee as my first beginning, I long for Thee as my last end, I praise Thee as my constant benefactor, I call on Thee as my loving protector.
Guide me by Thy wisdom, hold me with Thy justice, comfort me with Thy mercy, protect me with Thy power.
I offer Thee, Lord, my thoughts, my words, my actions, and my sufferings to be fixed on Thee, to be according to Thee, and to be endured for Thee.
I want to do what Thou willeth, in the way Thou willeth for as long as Thou willeth, because Thou willeth.
I pray, O Lord, enlighten my understanding, inflame my will, purify my heart, and sanctify my soul.
May I weep for my former iniquities, repel future temptations, correct my faults, and cultivate suitable virtues.
Grant me, O God, love of Thee, hatred of me, zeal for my neighbor, contempt the world.
May I be eager to obey my superiors, be courteous to my inferiors, faithful to my friends, and to forgive my enemies.
Help me to conquer sensuality with austerity, greed with generosity, anger with gentleness, apathy with fervor.
Make me prudent in planning, steadfast in danger, patient in adversity, and humble in prosperity.
O Lord, make me attentive in prayer, temperate in drink, diligent in my duties, and firm in purpose.
May I take care to have an innocent interior, a modest exterior, exemplary speech, and a well-ordered life.
May I be ever-watchfull in guarding against my weaknesses, cherishing Thy grace, keeping Thy laws, and coming to salvation.
May I learn from Thee the passing nature of this world, the grandness of heaven, the shortness of this life, and the life to come eternal.
Grant that I may prepare for death, fear judgment, flee from Hell, and obtain paradise.
Grant this though Christ our Lord. Amen.
to whose faithful custody Innocence itself, Christ Jesus,
and Mary, Virgin of virgins, was committed;
I pray and beseech thee
by each of these dear pledges, Jesus and Mary,
that, being preserved from all uncleanness,
I may with spotless mind, pure heart, and a chaste body,
ever serve Jesus and Mary most chastely
all the days of my life. Amen.
