We must go to God and ask him to empty us of self and of self-seeking and of self-regard. We want to consecrate to God every possession, every action, every moment we live. Let us tell God that all we have and enjoy comes from him, belongs to him, that we hold it only at his disposal. We want to refer to him credit for anything we do. We want to consecrate to him all our pleasures, offer to him all our defects and discomforts. I have nothing my God, it is all yours. Take it. I give it back to you.
– Monsignor Ronald Knox
