“On rising, I shall adore the majesty of God and thank Him for His glory, the glory He has given to His Son, to the Blessed Virgin, to the Holy Angels, to my Guardian Angel, to Saint John the Baptist, to the Apostles, to Saint Joseph, and to all the saints in paradise. I will thank them also for the graces He has given to the holy Church, and especially for those I have received from Him, particularly for having preserved me during the night. I will offer Him my thoughts, ask Him to keep me from offending Him and to grant me the grace of carrying out faithfully whatever will be most pleasing to Him.”
