    Lord Jesus Christ,
    Take all my freedom,

    And I ask for nothing more.

  • Act of Consecration of a Christian Family to the Holy Family

    O Jesus, our most loving Redeemer,
    Who didst come into the world
    to enlighten it by Thy teaching and by Thy example,
    and Who didst will to pass the greater part of Thy mortal life
    in the poor cottage at Nazareth,
    in humble subjection to Mary and Joseph,
    thus sanctifying that Family
    which was to be the model of all Christian families;
    graciously receive this family
    which dedicates and consecrates itself to Thee this day.
    Do Thou protect us,
    do Thou watch over us!
    Do Thou bestow upon us Thy holy fear,
    peace, concord, and Christian love;
    that so, by the imitation of Thy family
    as our pattern and model,
    we may each and all obtain everlasting happiness.

    O Mary, loving Mother of Jesus and our Mother,
    by thy gracious intercession
    make this humble dedication acceptable to Jesus
    and obtain for us His graces and blessings.

    Saint Joseph,
    holy guardian of Jesus and Mary,
    assist us by thy prayers in all our spiritual and temporal necessities;
    so that, with Mary and with thee,
    we may for all eternity bless
    and thank our Divine Redeemer, Jesus.
    Amen.

  • Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart

    (St. Margaret Mary Alacoque)

    O Sacred Heart of Jesus, to Thee I consecrate and offer up my person and my life, my actions, trials, and sufferings, that my entire being may henceforth only be employed in loving, honoring and glorifying Thee. This is my irrevocable will, to belong entirely to Thee, and to do all for Thy love, renouncing with my whole heart all that can displease Thee.

    I take Thee, O Sacred Heart, for the sole object of my love, the protection of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my frailty and inconstancy, the reparation for all the defects of my life, and my secure refuge at the hour of my death. Be Thou, O Most Merciful Heart, my justification before God Thy Father, and screen me from His anger which I have so justly merited. I fear all from my own weakness and malice, but placing my entire confidence in Thee, O Heart of Love, I hope all from Thine infinite Goodness. Annihilate in me all that can displease or resist Thee. Imprint Thy pure love so deeply in my heart that I may never forget Thee or be separated from Thee.

    I beseech Thee, through Thine infinite Goodness, grant that my name be engraved upon Thy Heart, for in this I place all my happiness and all my glory, to live and to die as one of Thy devoted servants.

  • Consecration Prayer to Mary

    (St. Maximilian Kolbe)

    O Immaculata, Queen of Heaven and earth, refuge of sinners and our most loving Mother, God has willed to entrust the entire order of mercy to thee. I, _____, a repentant sinner, cast myself at thy feet humbly imploring thee to take me with all that I am and have, wholly to thyself as thy possession and property. Please make of me, of all my powers of soul and body, of my whole life, death and eternity, whatever most pleases thee.

    If it pleases thee, use all that I am and have without reserve, wholly to accomplish what was said of thee: “She shall crush your head,” and, “Thou alone hast destroyed all heresies in the whole world.” Let me be a fit instrument in thine Immaculate and merciful hands for introducing and increasing thy glory to the maximum in all the many strayed and indifferent souls, and thus help extend as far as possible the blessed Kingdom of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus. For wherever thou enterest, one obtains the grace of conversion and growth in holiness, since it is through thy hands that all graces come to us from the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

    V. Allow me to praise thee O Sacred Virgin.

    R. Give me strength against thy enemies.

  • Consecration to St. Michael the Archangel

    O St. Michael the Archangel, most Noble Prince of the Angelic Hierarchies, valorous warrior of Almighty God, and zealous lover of His Glory, terror of the rebellious angels, and love and delight of all the just, desiring to be numbered among thy devoted servants, I, today offer and consecrate myself to thee, and place myself, my family and all I possess under thy most powerful protection.

    I entreat thee not to look at how little, I, as thy servant have to offer, being only a wretched sinner, but rather gaze, with favorable eye, at the heartfelt affection with which this offering is made.

    Remember that, if from this day onward, I am under thy patronage, thou must assist me during all my life and procure for me the pardon of my many sins, and the grace to love God, my dear Savior Jesus, and my Sweet Mother Mary with all my heart. Obtain for me the help necessary to arrive at my crown of glory.

    Defend me always from my spiritual enemies, particularly in the last moments of my life.

    Come then, O Glorious Prince. Succor me in my last struggle. With thy powerful weapon cast far from me and into the infernal abyss that prevaricator and proud angel that thou prostrated in the celestial battle.

    Saint Michael, defend us in our daily battles so that we may not perish in the Last Judgment. Amen.
