Eternal Father, I offer Thee anew, this day, my life and service, joy and suffering, final struggle and death as it may come on the battle field or otherwise in Thy humble service, and especially the order of this day as Thy providence commands and duty enjoins, in union with the toil, suffering and sacrifice of Thy Beloved Son, our King and Captain, Jesus Christ, Who daily renews His victorious passage through the veil of death upon the altars of Thy Holy Church. May this Great High Priest, the Orient on High, lead the ranks of Thy armies by the lieutenancy of Thy minister to the glorious and eternal day of thy final victory over the fiend and the power of the netherworld and of Thy most perfect glorification. Lead me to Thine altar, where often I may kneel before Thy majesty, girt about with truth and plated with justice, to be worthily fed from the most fair and spotless Grail of the Son’s Body and Blood. Thus fortified may I be surely prepared for blessed, brave and honorable death, when with Thy Holy Mother I may be initiated into the company Thy true servants who sing Thy praises forever. Amen.
