Into Thy hands, O Lord,
and into the hands of Thy holy Angels,
I commit and entrust this day my soul,
my relations, my benefactors,
my friends and enemies,
and all Thy Catholic people.
Keep us, O Lord, through the day,
by the merits and intercession
of the Blessed Virgin Mary and all Thy Saints,
from all vicious and unruly desires,
from all sins and temptations of the devil,
and from sudden and unprovided death
and the pains of hell.
Illuminate my heart
with the grace of Thy Holy Spirit;
grant that I may ever be obedient
to Thy commandments;
suffer me not to be separated from Thee, O God,
who livest and reignest
with God the Father
and the same Holy Spirit
for ever and ever. Amen.
St. Edmund the Martyr
That we may be delivered from every sling and arrow,
St. Edmund, pray for us.
