The challenge has been placed before me. Do I dare refuse the man whose whole earthly life was spent in consecration, in humility, in suffering for my sins? My gratitude to the Lord of Creation places before me the quest of becoming like Him, whether convenient or inconvenient. What is in my past my gracious Lord has forgiven. What lies in my present, my loving Lord guides. What lies head of me, I do not know. I can only be sure of this, Jesus Christ is my Lord ~ yesterday, today and tomorrow and I belong to Him. I consecrate myself to Him. I live only for Him. In all my imperfections, I know He purifies me. Let me not oh Lord resist your loving hand. Let me realize myself as someone in need of Your love and patient forgiveness. May I always accept humbly and graciously Your love, Your chastening, Your forgiveness, Your call to holiness!
