Act of Oblation to the Holy Spirit


On My Knees before the great cloud of heavenly witnesses, I offer myself body and soul to Thee, eternal Spirit of God. I adore the brightness of your purity, the unerring keenness of your justice and the might of Thy love. You are the strength and light of my soul. In you I live and move and have my being. I desire never to grieve you through sin, and I pray with all my heart to be kept safe from the smallest sin against you. Grant that I may be faithful in every thought, words and deeds, and grant that I may always listen to your voice, watch for your light, and follow your gracious inspirations. I cling to you and give myself to you, and I ask you by your compassion to watch over me in my weakness. Holding the pierced feet of Jesus, looking at His five Wounds, trusting in His Precious Blood and adoring His sacred side and stricken Heart, I implore Thee, adorable Spirit, Helper of my infirmity, to keep me in your grace that I may never sin against you with the sin which you will not forgive. Grant to me the grace, O Holy Spirit, Spirit of the Father and of the Son, to say to you always and everywhere, “Speak, Lord, for your servant hears.” Amen.
