Novena : Day 5

Posted in: Novena21 | 0

Lord Jesus, my Savior, you redeemed me by Your most precious blood and death. This is why I promise to give my life serving You, in the Society of Jesus, serving no other than You and for You only. I sign this promise with my own blood and hand, ready to sacrifice all of my life as willingly as I shed this drop of my blood.

This commitment, made in 1631, is in someway concretized by the vow of martyrdom (1637-1639).
