Holy Trinity,Â One God, living and true,Â Almighty and Omnipresent,Â Total Love,Â I adore You,Â I bless You,Â and I glorify You.Â I believe in You, andÂ in Your saving and healing power.
Today, I recognizeÂ how much I sinnedÂ and hence, I am cut off from you.Â My Lord, I renounceÂ from my heart and for always:Â Satan, his works,Â his lies, sin, impurity,Â and the love for power and pleasureÂ that separate me from you,Â my God and Lord.
I recognize, O Lord, that I have erred:Â in accepting whatÂ other sects have proposed,Â in using God’s name in vain,Â in my participation inÂ satanic rites and occult ritualsÂ that are not in accordance withÂ the teachings of the Catholic Church.Â I have been an easy preyÂ to those sects and false teachingsÂ because I don’t studyÂ the Bible,Â the catechism ofÂ the Catholic Church,Â and I don’t frequentÂ the sacraments.
I am not faithful toÂ the Sunday EucharistÂ and when I participate,Â I don’t listen to the homily.Â I don’t seek spiritual guidance,Â nor do I seek forgiveness of sinsÂ through the sacramentÂ of reconciliation.
Merciful Lord, I can only express honestlyÂ what I have passed through.Â I return to You with a repentant heart,Â and I beg you not to refuse meÂ with your mercy.Â Pardon me for all my sins.
I renounce all false beliefÂ in the reincarnationÂ because Jesus said thatÂ we will all resurrect as he resurrected.Â I renounce the manipulationÂ and use of God’s name in vain,Â and I renounce using God’s WordÂ as a means of mental control.
I renounce all practices ofÂ occultism that tie me to the enemy:Â such as visits toÂ witches, and diviners;Â the use of amulets, talismanÂ and objects of good luck,Â like stones, crystals,Â wristbands, necklaces,Â and love charms thatÂ aim to dominateÂ the will of persons,Â to seduce them, andÂ and make them attractiveÂ to the opposite sex.
I renounce the use of black magic,Â participation in New Age,Â sects, metaphysics, GnosticsÂ and other groupsÂ that make me forgetÂ that salvation comesÂ only from the Lord.Â I renounce all superstitious practicesÂ and rites about knowing the future,Â such as horoscope,Â palm reading, astrology,Â and spirit of the glass.
Today, Lord and Father of Jesus,Â I renounce allÂ false doctrines and philosophiesÂ that separate me from You.Â I renounce all these,Â and I call on my Guardian AngelÂ and on St. Michael to be my witnesses.Â May their presenceÂ embolden me toÂ be faithful to my words.
All powerful God, I promiseÂ to follow Your commandmentsÂ and to destroy allÂ the idols that enslave me to evil.Â I promise toÂ assist in the Holy MassÂ during Sundays and toÂ frequent the Sacraments,Â especially, Holy ConfessionÂ I accept the liberty of a child of GodÂ that You gave to me.
I promise to surrender myselfÂ to God’s willÂ spontaneously and freelyÂ so that God’s willÂ may be fulfilled in me.
I accept to carry with me, on my neck,Â a Holy Cross, blessed by the priest.Â Its presence on my breastÂ assures me of victoryÂ against the enemy of GodÂ and the forces of evil.
I accept Mary asÂ the Mother of God,Â the Mother of the ChurchÂ and my Mother.Â I consecrate myselfÂ to the Most Holy Virgin MaryÂ and through her,Â I consecrate myselfÂ to the Most Holy TrinityÂ and the Catholic Church.
I accept the gifts of the Holy SpiritÂ which I will useÂ for the benefitÂ of the Holy Church, andÂ for the goodÂ of my brothers and sisters, andÂ for the common workÂ of spreading the Gospel.
