IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY FOR PURITY
Oh, Immaculate Heart of Mary, Virgin Most Pure, mindful of the
terrible moral dangers threatening on all sides, and aware of my
own human weakness, I voluntarily place myself, body and soul,
this day and always, under thy loving maternal care and protection.
I consecrate to thee my body, with all its members, asking that thou
wilt help me never to use it as an occasion of sin to others.
Help me to remember that my body is
"The Temple of the Holy Ghost," and to use it
according to God's Holy Will, for my own personal salvation, and
the salvation of others.
I consecrate to thee my soul, asking that thou wilt watch over it
and to bring it home safe to thee and to Jesus in Heaven for all eternity.
Oh Mary, my Mother, all that I am, all that I have is thine.
Keep me and guard me under thy mantle of mercy
as thy personal property and possession.
"Jesus, Mary, I love Thee, save souls!"
Imprimatur: Bishop Albert Zuroweste
Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and Queen of the World, rule over us, together with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, Our King. Save us from the spreading flood of modern paganism; kindle in our hearts and homes the love of purity, the practice of a virtuous life, an ardent zeal for souls, and a desire to pray the Rosary more faithfully.
We come with confidence to You, O Throne of Grace and Mother of Fair Love. Inflame us with the same Divine Fire which has inflamed Your own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Make our hearts and homes Your shrine, and through us, make the Heart of Jesus, together with your rule, triumph in every heart and home.
-- Pope Pius XII
Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of MaryReplyDelete
O Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth, and tender Mother of men, in accordance with thy ardent wish made known at Fatima, I consecrate to thy Immaculate Heart myself, my brethren, my country and the whole human race. Reign over us, Most Holy Mother of God, and teach us how to make the Heart of Thy Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ reign and triumph in us even as It has reigned and triumphed in thee. Reign over us, dearest Mother, that we may be thine in prosperity and in adversity; in joy and in sorrow; in health and in sickness; in life and in death. O most compassionate Heart of Mary, Queen of Virgins, watch over our minds and our hearts and preserve them from the deluge of impurity which thou didst lament so sorrowfully at Fatima. We want to be pure like thee. We want to atone for the many sins committed against Jesus and thee. We want to call down upon our country and the whole world the peace of God in justice and charity.
Therefore, we now promise to imitate thy virtues by the practice of a Christian life without regard to human respect. We resolve to receive Holy Communion on the First Saturday of every month and to offer thee five decades of the rosary each day together with our sacrifices in a spirit of reparation and penance. Amen.
Act of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Most Holy Virgin and our beloved Mother, we listen with grief to the complaints of the Immaculate Heart, surrounded with the thorns which ungrateful men place therein at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. Moved by the ardent desire of loving thee as our Mother and of promoting a true devotion to thy Immaculate Heart, we prostrate ourselves at thy feet to prove the sorrow we feel for the grief that men cause thee and to atone by means of our prayers and sacrifices for the offenses with which men return thy tender love.Obtain for them and for us the pardon of so many sins. A word from thee will obtain grace and forgiveness for all.Hasten, O Lady, the conversion of sinners that they may love Jesus and cease to offend God, already so much offended, and thus avoid eternal punishment.Turn thine eyes of mercy towards us so that henceforth we may love God with all our heart while on earth and enjoy Him forever in Heaven. Amen.
