ACT OF RENEWAL OF PRIESTLY
COMMITMENT BY MONSIGNOR PETER MAGEE
ON THE SILVER JUBILEE OF HIS ORDINATION
2 July 2006
Lord Jesus Christ, compassionate High Priest of Gods Religion, blessed are You!
I give you thanks on this day for calling me, consecrating me and sending me forth as another Christ.
Look not upon my many sins but upon the works of grace you have achieved through me.
Renew within me the spirit
of holiness and the grace of holy orders.
Before your holy altar and in the presence of your holy people, I recommit myself with all my being to be faithful to the vocation you have given me and to the promises of obedience, celibacy and the divine office I made so many years ago.
May I imitate the mysteries I celebrate and conform my life to your Cross.
Grant me fidelity unto death, wherever, whenever and however that may be.
Through the prayers of the Immaculate Mother of Fairest Love and the intercession of Saints Peter, Augustine, Ambrose, Ignatius of Loyola and Teresa of Avila, and of all my heavenly friends, bring me to stand before you with all your holy ones as a priest for ever, in the true sanctuary of your glory.
You who alone are God,
the Delight of the Fathers Heart in the Communion of the Holy Spirit,
for ever and ever. Amen
