Act of Consecration
to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
ALL KNEEL AND PRAY TOGETHER.
O Sacred Heart of Jesus
who made known to St. Margaret Mary
Your great desire to reign over Christian families
we are gathered here today
to proclaim Your complete dominion over our family.
From now on we promise to lead a Christlike life:
we will strive to develop in our home
all the virtues which bring with them the peace that You promised
and we will not compromise with the spirit of secularism
which You have so strongly denounced.
You will rule over our minds through our deep and living faith.
You will be King of our hearts by our generous love for You;
and we will cultivate this love
by the frequent reception of You in Holy Communion.
Divine Heart of Jesus,
preside over our family gatherings;
bless all our family undertakings, both spiritual and temporal.
Sanctify our joys and comfort us in our sorrows.
If any member of our family should have the misfortune to offend You seriously,
please remind him, O Sacred Heart of Jesus,
of Your infinite love and mercy for the penitent sinner.
And when the hour of separation comes,
when death brings its sorrows into our family,
whether we go or whether we stay,
we humbly accept Your divine will.
At the same time we will console and comfort ourselves with the thought
that the time will come when our whole family
will be united lovingly with You in heaven forever.
There we shall sing a hymn of praise
to the infinite mercy and love of Your Sacred Heart.
We ask the Immaculate Heart of Mary and our glorious protector,
St. Joseph, to offer You this family consecration of ours.
May the memory of this consecration be with us always.
We will say one
Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be
for the intentions of the Holy Father
and for absent members, living and dead.
Act of Consecration
to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
0 Virgin Mary, most powerful Mother of Mercy,
Queen of Heaven and earth,
in accordance with your wish made known at Fatima,
I consecrate myself today to your Immaculate Heart.
To you I entrust all that I have, all that I am.
Reign over me, dearest Mother,
that I may be yours in prosperity,
in adversity, in joy and in sorrow,
in health and in sickness, in life and in death.
Most compassionate Heart of Mary,
Queen of Virgins, watch over my mind and heart
and preserve me from the deluge of impurity
which you lamented so sorrowfully at Fatima.
I want to be pure like you.
I want to atone for the many crimes committed against Jesus and you.
I want to call down upon this country
and the whole world the peace of God in justice and charity.
Mindful of this consecration,
I now promise to strive to imitate you
by the practice of the Christian virtues
without regard for human respect.
I resolve to receive Holy Communion
on the first Saturday of every month when possible,
and to offer daily five decades of the Rosary,
with all my sacrifices in the spirit of penance and reparation. Amen.
I, . . ., a faithless sinner, renew and ratify today in thy Heart,
O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism;
I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works;
and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ,
the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life,
and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.
Queen of the Most Holy Rosary,
in the presence of all the heavenly court,
I choose thee this day for my Mother and Mistress.
I deliver and consecrate to thee, and to thy Immaculate Heart,
as thy child and slave of love, my body and soul,
my goods, both interior and exterior,
and even the value of all my good actions, past, present and future;
leaving to thee the entire and full right of disposing of me,
and all that belongs to me,
without exception, according to thy good pleasure,
for the greater glory of God, in time and in eternity. Amen.
