A Prayer for Today
Praise to you, saving sacrifice,
offered on the wood of the cross
for me and for all mankind.
Praise to the noble and precious blood,
flowing from the wounds
of the my crucified Lord Jesus Christ
and washing away the sins of the whole world.
Remember, Lord, your creature,
whom you have redeemed with your blood;
I repent my sins,
and I long to put right what I have done.
Merciful Father, take away
all my offenses and sins;
purify me in body and soul,
and make me worthy to taste the holy of holies.
St. Ambrose of Milan
