resign myself entirely to thee, to receive death at the time and in the manner it shall please thee to send


2 I most humbly ask pardon for all my sins committed against thy sovereign goodness, and repent of them all from the bottom of my heart.

3 I firmly believe whatsoever the holy Catholic Church believes and teaches; and, by thy grace, I will die in this belief.

4 I hope to possess eternal life by thy infinite mercy, and by the merits of my Saviour Jesus Christ.

5 O my God, I desire to love thee as my Sovereign Good, above all things, and to despise this miserable world. I desire to love my neighbour as myself, for the love of thee, and to forgive all injuries from my heart.

6 O my divine Jesus, how great is my desire to receive thy sacred Body! Oh! come now into my soul, at least by a spiritual communion. Oh! grant that I may worthily receive thee before my death. I desire to unite myself to all the worthy communions which shall be made in thy holy Church even to the end of the world.

7 Grant me thy grace, O my divine


Saviour, perfectly to efface all the sins I have committed by any of my senses, by applying daily to my soul thy blessed merits, and the holy unction of thy precious blood.

8 Holy Virgin, Mother of God, defend me from my enemies in my last hour, and present me to thy divine Son. Glorious St. Michael, prince of the heavenly host, and thou, my angel guardian, and you my blessed patrons, intercede for me, and assist me in this last and dreadful passage.

9 0 my God, I renounce all the temptations of the enemy, and whatsoever may in any way displease thee. I adore and accept thy divine appointments with regard to me, and entirely abandon myself to them as most just and equitable.

10 O Jesus, my divine Saviour, be thou a Jesus to me, and save me O my God, hiding myself with a humble confidence in thy dear wounds, I give up my soul into thy divine hands. Oh! receive it into the bosom of thy mercy. Amen.
