“…My angel, prayer is the foundation in the center of the consecration. In the union of prayer God may manifest Himself to the soul to teach and guide in a specific way. It is by prayer that we may bring His will of us into focus.
The center of preparation for the consecration is a union of prayer. Prayer is to be a constant communion between the soul and God. It is what shall allow solitude to caress the soul deeply. Pray for all things to be given to you from His hand, to unburden your heart, to bring tranquility and quiet. When your soul has found the depths of solitude, it is then that God may write upon your heart….” 3-18-93
The purpose of the consecration is to unite ourselves inseparable to Our Lady. She in turn, comes to unite every soul to her Son, whose purpose is to bring salvation to mankind. All Our Lady shall do, is to bring about her donation to the mission of her Son—the plan of salvation. Only by her part in His plan, was she designed to follow the same flow of grace that comes from Him who sends her. In Our Lady was created the way to fulfill this plan; she was given the position of co-redemptrix. All that she will ask, is to fulfill the purpose of God’s plan. Our Lady’s role is indeed the fulfillment of her co-redeeming value in the whole plan of God. The Triumph of Her Immaculate Heart is also the fulfillment of her place as co-rerdeemer. The consecration to her heart shall lay the foundation of our soul to collaborate with the entire global plan of God.
Our Lady reminds us that the soul who shall find her, shall find a life filled with grace and eternal glory. Just as she is called the “Star of the sea”, patroness to guide ships into port, so she guides our soul through her Immaculate portal to the heart of her Son. Through her intercession, our prayers, petitions and intentions are directed towards heaven in a special way. The power of her intercession is so great in the manner of a command, that it is impossible that they may not be heard by her Son nor shall they be rejected. She prays continually for us, and obtains all the graces for which we petition—for her only desire is our sanctification. Let us not neglect to have recourse in all our needs to the divine mother, who is always prepared to assist all who invoke her intercession. To obtain salvation, it is enough to ask the aid of her prayers. Through our consecration, we invoke her most powerful intercession, for we contain in this grace, her very own heart, intertwined with the heart of her Son.
O’Immaculate Heart of Mary who contains invincible power, one that can conquer a multitude of sins; nothing can resist your power since the Savior regards it as His own. Dear Mother who is joined to God in saving sinners, grant to my soul your great intercession now and at the hour of my death. I place all my petitions before your feet that you may carry them into the depths of the heart of Jesus. Defend me in times of afflictions; protect me in times of despair; take pity on the miseries of my soul. O’Holy Virgin, Mediatrix of all heavens graces, dwell within my heart.
The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven
and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin
Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died
and was buried; He descended on the hell, the third day
He arose from the dead; He ascended into heaven, sits at
the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence
he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in
the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion
of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the
body, and life everlasting. Amen.
My Queen, my Mother,
I give myself entirely to thee,
and to show my devotion to thee,
I consecrate to thee this day,
my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart,
my whole being without reserve.
Wherefore good mother, as I am thine own,
Keep me, guard me as thy property and possession.
V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit
V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord
R. Be it done unto me according to Thy Word
V. And the Word was made flesh
R. And dwelt among us.
V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
V. Let us pray.
R. Pour forth we beseech Thee O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His passion and cross be brought to the glory of His resurrection, through the same Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
For the Virtue of Faith
- The Lord’s Prayer
- The Glory Be
- Prayer to the Holy Spirit
Come Holy Spirit, enlighten my heart, to see the things which are of God; Come Holy Spirit, into my mind, that I may know the things that are of God; Come Holy Spirit, into my soul, that I belong only to God. Sanctify all
that I think, say and do, that all will be for the glory of God. Amen. 12-23-91
Repeat prayers 1, 2 and 3 each time for the Hope, Charity, Humility, Patience, Perseverance, and Obedience.
“O’ Maria transform my heart unto thine,
Place around it a wreath of purity, adorned in virtue.
Take my heart, dear Mother, consecrated as your own.
Present it to God Father as an offering from me to you.
Help me O’ Maria in each day to make your heart more known.” 3-19-93
As we say this prayer given to us by Our Lady, may our hearts be opened to recognize and accept the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and may we step forward confidently in this battle for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart. We are called to become a reflection of Christ – a reflection of the face of God that all may be drawn to – so that His glory may be magnified through our lives.
“My dear children, you bring my Jesus such joy today. I pass to you all a great blessing from God. He desires to create in His children, unity and glory to His Name.” 6-7-92
“Spirit of Christ, stir me; Spirit of Christ, move me; Spirit of Christ, fill me; Spirit of Christ, seal me. Consecrate in me Your heart and will O Heavenly Father. Create in me a fountain of virtues. Seal my soul as Your own, that your reflection in me may be a light for all to see. Amen.” 6-7-92
