Consecration to Our Lady

I, ___, a repentant sinner, renew and ratify today in your hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism.

I renounce Satan and resolve to follow Jesus Christ even more closely than before. 

Mary, I give you my heart. Please set it on fire with love for Jesus. Make it always attentive to His burnig thirst for love and for souls.

Keep my heart in your most pure Heart that I may love Jesus and the members of His body with your own perfect love.

Mary, I entrust myself totally to you : my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions.

Please make of me, of all that I am and have, whatever most pleases you. Let me be a fit instrument in your Immaculate and meciful hands for bringing the greatest possible glory to God. If I fall, please lead me back to Jesus. Wash me in the blood and water that flow from His pierced side, and help me never to lose my trust in this fountain of love and mercy.

With you, O Immaculate Mother - you who always do the will of God - I unite myself to the perfect consecration of Jesus as He offers Himself in the Spirit to the Father for the life of the world.         Amen.

 

Consecration to St. Joseph

On this day, before the great multitude of heavenly witnesses, I, ___, a repentant sinner, consecrate myself, body and soul, to you, St. Joseph.

O Glorious Patriarch and Patron of the Church!

O Virgin spouse of the Virgin Mother of God!

O Guardian and Virginal Father of the Word Incarnate!

In the presence of Jesus and Mary, I choose you this day to be my father, my guardian, and my protector.

O great St. Joseph, whom God has made the Head of Holy Family, accept me, I beseech you, though utterly unworthy, to be a member of your "Holy House." Present me to your Immaculate Spouse : ask her also to adopt me as her child. With her, pray that I may constantly think of Jesus, and serve Him faithfully to the end of my life.

O Terror of demons, increase in me virtue, protect me from the evil one, and help me not to offend God in any way. Never depart from me, St. Joseph. Nourish me with the Bread of life, instruct me in the wisdom of the saints, help me carry my cross, and keep me always in the Catholic Church.

O my Spiritual Father, I hereby consecrate myself to you. In faithful imitation of Jesus and Mary, I place myself and all my concerns under your care and protection.

To you, after Jesus and Mary, I consecrate my body and soul, with all their faculties, my spiritual growth, my home and all my affairs and undertakings. Forsake me not, but adopt me as a servant and child of the Holy Family. Watch over me at all times, but especially at the hour of my death and take me to the kingdom of Heaven to see Jesus and Mary.

Console and strenghten me with the presence of Jesus and Mary so that, with you, I may praise and adore the Holy Trinity for all eternity.

From this day onward I will never forget you, I will speak of you often, spend time with you in my prayer.         Amen.
