St. Alphonsus Liguori's feast day was celebrated yesterday on the new calendar and today on the old. This night prayer of his is one of our favorites and a beautiful way to end the day.
Jesus Christ, my God, I adore Thee and thank Thee for all the graces bestowed on me this day. I offer Thee my sleep and all the moments of this night, and I beg Thee to keep me from sin. Therefore, I place myself at Thy most sacred side and under the protecting mantle of our Lady, my Mother. May the holy angels help me and keep me in peace, and may Thy blessing be upon me. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I give you my heart and my soul. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, assist me in my last agony. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, may I breathe forth my soul in peace in your loving arms. Letting not the sun set on my wrath, may I now close my eyes in peace with my God and my fellow men. Into Thy hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
Remember, O Christian soul, that thou hast this day, and every day of thy life: God to glorify - Jesus to imitate - The Angels and Saints to invoke - A soul to save - A body to mortify - Sins to expiate - Virtues to acquire - Hell to avoid - Heaven to gain - Eternity to prepare for - Time to profit by - Neighbors to edify - The world to despise - Devils to combat - Passions to subdue - Death perhaps to suffer - Judgment to undergo.
