SEMINARIAN’S ACT OF OBLATION TO JESUS, OUR MERCIFUL PRIEST
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
I, Seminarian N., do hereby make (renew) a private act of oblation to Jesus Christ, our Merciful Priest. I willingly and freely offer my entire self and my priestly formation to Jesus Christ, present in the most Blessed Sacrament.
In union with all the priests of the Confraternity of Jesus, Our Merciful Priest, I commit myself to daily attendance of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, spending an hour of my day with the Eucharistic Lord, the prayerful recitation of the Liturgy of the Hours, and fidelity to my priestly formation.
May this act of oblation be a pleasing fragrance to the most Holy Trinity. Through the intercession of Mary, Queen and Mother of Priests and all the Saints, may the Lord grant me the grace of total fidelity to the promises of my baptism and perseverance to my priestly formation. Amen.
