I offer myself to You now and always as a Daughter of St. Philip Neri

Lord, through Your Spirit and to the glory of the God the Father, I offer myself to You now and always as a Daughter of St. Philip Neri.  

I prayer that You enflame my heart with love for You.  May you find in me and my desire to do Your will some small comfort and consolation in the face of the world’s coldness and impiety.  I long to quench Your thirst for love and that the desire of Your Heart may be met with the response of loving gratitude by all; especially Your priests to whom You have entrusted the care of souls and celebration of Your Holy Mysteries.

Help me to accept all my trials, small or great; to gather them up and lay them before You in reparation.  To these I add my humble prayers and mortifications and offer them all to You in loving adoration.  May it be as a sweet smelling ointment and healing balm for the wounds You bear on our behalf.


Amen.
