Mary, Virgin Most Powerful
and Mother of Mercy, Queen of
Heaven and Refuge of Sinners,
we consecrate ourselves to thine
We consecrate, to thee, our very
being and our whole lives: all that
we have, all that we love, all that
we are. To thee, we give our bodies,
our hearts and our souls; to thee, we
give our homes, our families, our
country. We desire that all that is
in us and around us may belong to
thee, and may share in the benefits
of thy motherly benediion. And
that, this A of Consecration may
be truly efficacious and lasting, we renew this day at thy feet the
promises of our Baptism and first Holy Communion. We pledge
ourselves to profess courageously and, at all times, the truths of our
holy Faith, and to live as befits Catholics who are duly submissive to all
the direions of the Pope and the Bishops in communion with him.
We pledge ourselves to keep the Commandments of God and of His
Church, in particular to keep holy the Lord’s Day. We likewise pledge
ourselves to make the consoling praices of the Christian religion
and, above all, Holy Communion, an integral part of our lives, insofar
as we shall be able so to do.
Finally, we promise thee, O glorious Mother of God and loving Mother
of men, to devote ourselves wholeheartedly to the service of thy
blessed cult, in order to hasten and assure, through the sovereignty
of thine Immaculate Heart, the coming of the Kingdom of the Sacred
Heart of thine adorable Son, in our own hearts and in the hearts of
all men, in our own country and in all the world, as in Heaven, so on
Three years indul.; A plenary indul. on the usual conditions,
if this Act of Consecration is repeated daily for a month.
