TOTAL SURRENDER

Blessed Virgin Mary, Most Holy Mother, guide my soul, accompany me in this spiritual adventure towards the Light. Towards the essence of the Holy Trinity.

Holy, Holy, Holy God, listen to my call. I knock on Your door, Your Son Jesus Christ, that door where You are right behind; where Your Light shines so brightly that my fragile human eyes cannot perceive it.

I then detach myself from my body, from my senses and from my conscience, so that I can talk to You and mobilise myself directly with my soul. I leave behind all material things, all that identifies itself with me and with the world.

I am the heart of my soul that has enlightened with the fire of Your Divine Love, that as a fertilised flower, has become Your fruit: The Spirit.

Lord, I speak to You with my spirit, I adore You infinitely, with all the mysterious strength that You have poured over me.

My words are needless, I am now an offering of Divine Love that You have placed on the earth and that is coming back to You, acknowledging Your Grandeur, Your Mercy and Your Wisdom.

Behind, there stays the dust, the world, and my ego. I am nothing.

All that there is left of me is consciousness that You exist, that You are Who You Are and I am nothing, because, even this awareness of my own existence, is that flame of Divinity that You placed hidden in my heart, which is your property, but that right now has become Light, and It does not find joy in the darkness of isolated existence and it feels attracted by the magnetism of Your Omnipotent Presence.

I open my heart completely to Your Majesty. The same way Christ in the Cross surrendered for us, I surrender now to You my God.

I am nothing. Because You are the One Who gives me Life, You sustain it, You are my sacred refuge, You are my company, You are the Spirit that guides me and You are Who waits for me at the end of this terrestrial journey; this little adventure that is insignificant in the Eternity of Your Existence.

My God, You are marvellous, only through the joy of my soul can I express my Love to You. You have made me happy when my tears of joy have expressed my spiritual emotions.

If this fire of Love has become Light, and You are the Light, then Lord, this little ray of light proclaims You and wants to kiss that infinite Celestial Sun that You Are: my origin.

Lord, I feel Your Divine Presence and Your Light shines on my soul.

Most Holy Trinity, anoint me with Your Holy Spirit, fill me with Your Love, and embrace me with the serenity of Your Peace, through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Allow me to lose my individuality in You, to penetrate profoundly in Your Infinite Being. Allow me to be One with You.

Lord, Live in me always, grow in me, support me with Your Strength, do not forsake me. Take command of all my actions, manifest Your Presence through Your servant, who lives in You, for You, through You and always with You.

Protect me Lord; make me a fort, impenetrable by sin; make me a soldier, apostle and bearer of Your Divine Word.

Make me fill the hearts of my brothers with this zeal, this fervour, this spirit of Love that You have gifted me with, make me a bearer of Your Light, to vanish darkness and to prepare the terrain for Your Kingdom. Not my will, but Yours be done.

Prayers

Prayer to Our Lord Jesus crucified  

Recommended before or after Holy Communion - or anytime  

Heavenly Father; in the holy name of your Son Jesus, crucified for my sins, and in the Love of the Holy Spirit, I come very humbly before you, with sorrow for my sins. Through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer you the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, which I live as I receive Him in the Holy Eucharist. 
Lord Jesus crucified; I humbly speak to you, in the Presence of Mary our Blessed Mother. I acknowledge that you suffered so much for me and for all, and that we are indebted to you forever. 

Lord; I appreciate very much your sufferings for me and for the rest of humanity. 
I thank you for saving me through your crushing pain, through your many wounds, through your tiredness and agony and through your Precious Blood shed with so much pain and love for us; through your difficulty to breath, through your sweat and tears, through your merciful patience, through every effort that you made and through your total offering for my sins and for the sins of the whole world.  

Lord I complain sometimes when I have a little misfortune, a wound or when I am sick or tired, rejected, despised or prosecuted. But you were covered through your entire body with painful wounds;  you were pierced with pain by the crown of thorns, you were stripped of your flesh by the scourging, you were insulted with terrible blasphemies, you were spat upon, you were humiliated, you were inflicted new wounds upon your wounded shoulder by the crushing weight of the cross, you were inflicted more wounds upon your wounds by the brutal stripping of your garments, you were pierced painfully by the nails on the cross, you were hanged upon the cross to bleed painfully to death, you suffered asphyxiation as you found it very painful to breathe, and yet your physical agony was only part of your suffering compared to your spiritual agony because you are God, and your holy soul was sorrowful unto death as you surrendered your life in exchange for our eternal life. 

You saw the ingratitude of men for your great sacrifice, and you suffered for the pride of our sins, for the aggressiveness of those whom you created with so much love, for the hatred of men who always receive all your love if only they come to you. 
My Lord Jesus crucified, I come humbly before you, everlasting fountain of healing and life, Powerful source of our Resurrection, food for our souls in the Holy Eucharist, eternal refuge of Divine Light, gate to the Majesty and Glory of the Father and our only hope and salvation. 

Divine Merciful Lord, I pray and beseech on behalf of all humanity for your Mercy  and compassion, for your healing and blessings and for your Salvation.  

Oh Precious treasure from Heaven, you who are hidden to the proud, fill my heart with humility and purity that I may be worthy to receive the promises of everlasting life in your Glory with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Amen.  

Lord into your Sacred Heart I place my heart united to all my needs and desires, 
I present humbly my petitions, please deign to listen to my plea, embrace me with your love, respond to my soul, look at me your child who comes attracted by your love. 

My Lord Jesus; In your crucified body I reverently place my sinfulness, my sicknesses and those of the people that I pray for; since you bore our diseases and infirmities, since you endured our sufferings and paid for our sins. Please dissolve them in your mercy; grant me these petitions in your holy name and in the name of your sorrowful mother, my mother. Amen. 

The Our Father

Our Father who art in Heaven hollowed beThy name:

Lord you are the King of the Universe, may you be glorified by all your creation, holy,     holy, holy Lord, Heaven and earth are full of your Glory, Hosanna in the Highest,             Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord, Hosanna in the Highest.

Thy Kingdom come:

May Peace, Love and Joy reign in our hearts, may your Kingdom of Justice, truth and integrity reign over the land.

Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven:

May we become your slaves of Love and accept your Will because your will is perfect. Not my will Lord, but yours be done.

Give us this day our daily bread:

Generous Father, grant us our daily physical and spiritual bread. Feed our bodies and feed our souls with the bread of life.

And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us:

We repent of our sins and ask you to forgive us, in your holy name we forgive those who have sinned against us, cleanse our hearts from all resentments.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  Amen

We acknowledge how weak we are Lord, please protect us from all evil. Amen.
