Weekly Reflection

The Imitation of Christ

Book 4 Chapter 9 We Must Offer Ourselves and All That is Ours to God, and Pray for All People: “DISCIPLE: Lord, all things in heaven and on earth are Yours. I desire to give myself to You in willing abandonment, and to remain Yours forever. Lord, in simplicity of heart, I offer myself to You this day, always to be Your obedient servant and a sacrifice of perpetual praise. Accept me with this holy sacrifice of Your precious Body, which I offer You today in the presence of Your assisting Angels, for my salvation and that of all Your people.


Lord, I offer You all my sins and offenses, committed before You and Your holy Angels, from the day I was first able to sin until now. Placing them upon Your altar of reconciliation, I implore You to burn and consume them in the fire of Your love. Wipe clean from slate of my conscience every stain of sin and every fault; and restore to me Your grace, which I have lost through sin, granting me full pardon of all, and in Your mercy receiving me with the kiss of peace.


What else can I do about my sins but humbly confess and deplore them, ever asking for Your mercy? Please hear me, O merciful God, as I stand before You. All my sins are extremely detestable to me; by Your grace, I will never commit them again. I am truly sorry for them and will regret them the rest of my life; and I am ready to do penance and make amends to the best of my ability. O my God, I beg You to forgive my sins, for Your holy Name’s sake. Be pleased to save my soul, which You have redeemed by Your precious Blood. I commit myself to Your mercy, resigning myself with confidence into Your hands.


Although my good works are few and imperfect, nevertheless I offer them to You to improve and sanctify. Look upon them favorably, making them acceptable to You, always perfecting them; and bring me, a slothful and useless creature, to a holy and glorious end.


I offer You also all the holy desires of devout persons; the needs of my parents, brothers, sisters, friends, and all who are dear to me; and all who have shown kindness to me or others for Your love, or who have asked me to pray and offer Masses for them and those dear to them—living or dead. May they be helped by Your grace and consolation, protected from dangers and delivered from their pains. Then, freed from all evils, they may joyfully give You praise and thanks.


I offer You as well my prayers and this sacrifice of reconciliation especially for those who hurt me, offended me, abused me, or inflicted any injury upon me; and for all, too, whom I have at any time burdened, grieved, troubled or prevented from good—by word or deed, knowingly or unknowingly. Be pleased to forgive us all our sins and mutual offenses. Drive from our hearts, O Lord, all suspicion, perversity, anger, dissension, and whatever else may wound charity or lessen brotherly love. Be merciful, O Lord, be merciful to those who implore Your grace and life everlasting. Amen.”
