O God, who in your exceeding goodness have adorned your Church with the eminently meritorious life of the Blessed Edmund your Confessor and Bishop, and have gladdened her by his glorious miracles; mercifully grant that, we your servants, may by his example be reformed, and by his patronage be protected from all adversities. Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Morning Offering of St. Edmund

Lord, into your hands and into the hands of your holy angels I
give and entrust this day my soul, my parents and relatives,
my benefactors, my friends, my enemies, and all Christian
people.

 

Keep me, Lord, this day through the merits and prayers
of the Blessed Virgin Mary and all your saints, from vices and
wicked desires, from sins and temptations of the devil, from
sudden and unprepared death, and from the pains of hell.

 

Enlighten my mind with the Holy Spirit and with your grace.
Make me evermore obedient to your commands, and never
permit me to separate myself from you, who with the Father
and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns forever and ever.

 

Amen.
