Step 2 -
Step 1 - Repent
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee,
and I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of heaven,
and the pains of hell; but most of all because they offend Thee,
my God, Who are all good and deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to confess my sins,
to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.
My Dearest Father, please accept this offering of my body and soul and help me unite my will to Thy will.
I PRAISE Thee for thy Creation – All Thy Works and Wonders.
I THANK Thee for giving me life and for all that thou have done for me.
I OFFER up to Thee all that Thou hast so generously given me.
I am sincerely SORRY for not knowing, loving, serving and honoring Thee as I should.
I embrace my INHERITANCE as Thy child, both the joy and the responsibilities.
I give Thee my “YES” so that I may be an instrument of Thy Will.
I pledge my FIDELITY and I ask for the grace of steadfastness and perseverance in the true faith.
Most loving, caring and merciful Father, in Thy Divine Presence, I sincerely proclaim my love for Thee; I give myself and my family to Thee; and I solemnly CONSECRATE myself (and my family) to Thee - now and forever.
Dearest Father, as Thy child, I ask Thee send Thy Blessed Mother Mary to guide me to her Son Our Lord Jesus Christ. May He send down upon me the Holy Ghost to bring me to Thee; and I ask the Virgin Mary to prepare me to be a living temple where Thou canst dwell with me and in me – a dedicated temple to Jesus and purified by Thy Spirit. May I always be with Thee and in Thee, and permit me as Thy child to be Thy truest and intimate friend – one who loves Thee above all things. Come for me at death and bring me home to Thee.
I further ask Thee, Father, for the sake of all mankind to have mercy on all children that are Thine - past, present and future - and to bring peace to the world and to gather all Thy children to Thee.
And may Thy Kingdom come and Thy Will is done on earth as it is in heaven.
