Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary


Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Immaculate Heart of the most pure Virgin Mary,
our Mother, I, poor sinner, place my weak
heart, stained with sins, in you! Receive me
forever. Hold me fast and never again release me
from your loving power, so that I may be protected
from myself and sheltered in your mercy.

I consecrate to you my whole life and death,
all of my thoughts, words and actions. I want to love
as you love, I want to sacrifice as you sacrifice, I
want to keep silence as you keep silence, I want
to forgive as you forgive. And I want to be the way
that you would have me, so that you can lead me
to my lord and God, to His loving Heart, which
is the goal and beatitude of us all.

And you too, holy and great angels, I beg you
to remember my consecration to Mary, to admonish,
warm and guide me and never let me fall again.
Holy, faithful Guardian Angel and all you
heavenly helpers and brothers, receive me like a
seed entrusted to your care and which, nurtured
by you, is to bring forth fruit for eternity. Amen.
