Self-Offering to the Holy Spirit

by Father Brian Moore, S.J.

Holy Spirit, God of Love, be present to me; accept the offering of myself which I make to You. Receive these hands, these feet, these eyes, this tongue, and all my senses. Receive my memory, my will, my understanding, my desires, my sighs, the longings and the aspirations of my soul. Receive my every hour, my every moment, and all the happenings of my life.

Holy Spirit, God of Love, knit my soul to You. Let Your love possess my whole being, my senses, my powers, my affections, and my very life. Let Your love rule my labor and my rest, my going and my staying, and move me as it pleases. Let Your love disquiet or comfort me, humble or exalt me, and burn away all my faults.

Holy Spirit, God of Love, draw me to Yourself. Do with me what You will.  Nothing will cause me fear if only Your love enfolds me. I ask confidently because Your desire to give is greater than mine to receive. Transform me into Yourself, so that I may no longer know myself, except in You. Amen.
