ACT OF CONSECRATION TO THE
IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
I, N., a faithless sinner--
renew and ratify today in thy hands, 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.
In the presence of all the heavenly court I choose thee this day,
for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver and consecrate to thee, as
thy slave, 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.

CONSECRATION OF THE HUMAN RACE TO THE
SACRED HEART OF JESUS
O most Sweet Jesus,
Redeemer of the Human race; behold us prostrate most humbly before
Your altar (in your presence). To You we belong; Yours we wish to
be; and that we may be united to You more closely, we dedicate ourselves
each one of us to-day to Your most Sacred Heart.
Many have never known You; many, despising Your commands, have rejected
You. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them
to Your Sacred Heart. Be You King, O Lord, not only over the faithful
who never have gone away from You, but also over the prodigal children
who have forsaken You; and make them return quickly to their Father's
house, lest they perish of misery and hunger. Be You King of those
who have been misled by error, or separated by schism; and call
them back to the haven of truth and the unity of faith, so that
there may soon be one fold and one Shepherd. Grant to Your Church,
O Lord, assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace
and order to all nations, and grant that, over the whole earth,
from pole to pole, may resound the words:
Praise to the Divine Heart, through which was brought to us salvation;
glory and honor be to It for ever. Amen.
O Heart of love. I put all my trust in You; for I fear all things
from my own weakness, but I hope for all things from Your goodness.
Most sweet Heart of Jesus, grant that peace, the fruit of justice
ands charity, may reign throughout the world.
Sacred Heart of Jesus,
protect our families.
