Acts of Consecration to our Blessed

Mother
LIBERTY OF FORMS
Pope Pius XII said True devotion aims essentially at union with Jesus under the guidance of
Mary. The form and practice of this devotion may vary according to time, place and personal
inclination. Within the bounds of sound and safe doctrine, of orthodoxy and dignity of worship,
the Church leaves her children a just margin of liberty. She is conscious that true and perfect
devotion to our Lady is not bound up in any particular modes in such a way that one of them can
claim a monopoly over the others. Quoted in 33 Days to Morning Glory p 118.
We can consecrate ourselves to Our Blessed Mother in various ways and this consecration can be
formulated in different words; indeed, a simple interior act of the will is sufficient. But for
greater facility here are some well known forms of consecration:

ST LOUIS DE MONTFORT
Act of Consecration
O ETERNAL and incarnate Wisdom! O sweetest and most adorable Jesus! True God and true
man, only Son of the Eternal Father, and of Mary, always virgin! I adore Thee profoundly in the
bosom and splendors of Thy Father during eternity; and I adore Thee also in the virginal bosom
of Mary, Thy most worthy Mother, in the time of Thine incarnation.
I give Thee thanks for that Thou hast annihilated Thyself, taking the form of a slave in order to
rescue me from the cruel slavery of the devil. I praise and glorify Thee for that Thou hast been
pleased to submit Thyself to Mary, Thy holy Mother, in all things, in order to make me Thy
faithful slave through her. But, alas! Ungrateful and faithless as I have been, I have not kept the
promises which I made so solemnly to Thee in my Baptism; I have not fulfilled my obligations; I
do not deserve to be called Thy child, nor yet Thy slave; and as there is nothing in me which does
not merit Thine anger and Thy repulse, I dare not come by myself before Thy most holy and
august Majesty. It is on this account that I have recourse to the intercession of Thy most holy
Mother, whom Thou hast given me for a mediatrix with Thee. It is through her that I hope to
obtain of Thee contrition, the pardon of my sins, and the acquisition and preservation of wisdom.
Hail, then, O immaculate Mary, living tabernacle of the Divinity, where the Eternal Wisdom willed
to be hidden and to be adored by angels and by men! Hail, O Queen of Heaven and earth, to
whose empire everything is subject which is under God. Hail, O sure refuge of sinners, whose
mercy fails no one. Hear the desires which I have of the Divine Wisdom; and for that end receive
the vows and offerings which in my lowliness I present to thee.

I, ________________, a faithless sinner, renew and ratify today in thy hands 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.
Receive, O benignant Virgin, this little offering of my slavery, in honor of, and in union with, that
subjection which the Eternal Wisdom deigned to have to thy maternity; in homage to the power
which both of you have over this poor sinner, and in thanksgiving for the privileges with which the
Holy Trinity has favored thee. I declare that I wish henceforth, as thy true slave, to seek thy honor
and to obey thee in all things.
O admirable Mother, present me to thy dear Son as His eternal slave, so that as He has redeemed
me by thee, by thee He may receive me! O Mother of mercy, grant me the grace to obtain the true
Wisdom of God; and for that end receive me among those whom thou lovest and teachest, whom
thou leadest, nourishest and protectest as thy children and thy slaves.
O faithful Virgin, make me in all things so perfect a disciple, imitator and slave of the Incarnate
Wisdom, Jesus Christ thy Son, that I may attain, by thine intercession and by thine example, to the
fullness of His age on earth and of His glory in Heaven. Amen.

Brief Renewal
"I am all thine and all I have is thine, O dear Jesus, through Mary, Thy holy Mother."

ST. MAXIMILIAN MARY KOLBE


Prayer of Total Consecration by St. Maximilian Kolbe
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 you. I, N..., a repentant sinner, cast myself at your
feet humbly imploring you to take me with all that I am and have, wholly to yourself as your
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 you.
If it pleases you, use all that I am and have without reserve, wholly to accomplish what was said of
you: "She will crush your head," and, "You alone have destroyed all heresies in the world." Let me
be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands for introducing and increasing your
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 you enter you

obtain the grace of conversion and growth in holiness, since it is through your hands that all graces
come to us from the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

V. Allow me to praise you, O sacred Virgin.


R. Give me strength against your enemies.

Brief renewal
O Immaculata, Queen and Mother of the Church,
I renew my consecration to you this day and for always
so that you may use me for the coming
of the Kingdom of Jesus in the whole world.
To this end, I offer you all my prayers,
actions and sacrifices of this day.

MARIAN MOVEMENT OF PRIESTS

Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary


(For Religious & Laity)
Virgin of Fatima, Mother of Mercy, Queen of Heaven and Earth, Refuge of Sinners, we who
belong to the Marian Movement of Priests consecrate ourselves in a very special way to your
Immaculate Heart.
By this act of consecration we intend to live, with you and through you, all the obligations assumed
by our baptismal consecration. We further pledge to bring about in ourselves that interior
conversion so urgently demanded by the Gospel, a conversion that will free us of every attachment
to ourselves and to easy compromises with the world so that, like you, we may be available only to
do always the Will of the Father.
And as we resolve to entrust to you, O Mother most sweet and merciful, our life and vocation as
Christians, that you may dispose of it according to your designs of salvation in this hour of decision
that weighs upon the world, we pledge to live it according to your desires, especially as it pertains to
a renewed spirit of prayer and penance, the fervent participation in the celebration of the Eucharist
and in the works of the apostolate, the daily recitation of the holy rosary, and an austere manner of
life in keeping with the Gospel, that shall be to all a good example of the observance of the Law of
God and the practice of the Christian virtues, especially that of purity.

We further promise you to be united with the Holy Father, with the hierarchy and with our priests,
in order thus to set up a barrier to the growing confrontation directed against the Magisterium, that
threatens the very foundation of the Church.
Under your protection, we want moreover to be apostles of this sorely needed unity of prayer and
love for the Pope, on whom we invoke your special protection. And lastly, insofar as is possible, we
promise to lead those souls with whom we come in contact to a renewed devotion to you.
Mindful that atheism has caused shipwreck in the faith to a great number of the faithful, that
desecration has entered into the holy temple of God, and that evil and sin are spreading more and
more throughout the world, we make so bold as to lift our eyes trustingly to you, O Mother of
Jesus and our merciful and powerful Mother, and we invoke again today and await from you the
salvation of all your children, O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
(with ecclesiastical approval)

(For Youth)
Virgin of Fatima, my dearly beloved Mother,
I who belong to the Marian Movement, consecrate myself today, in a very special way, to your
Immaculate Heart.
By this solemn act, I offer my whole life to you;
my heart, my soul, my body and especially this time of my youth in which I am now living.
Guide me along the way that Jesus has traced out for us: the way of love, of goodness and of
sanctity.
Help me to flee from sin, from evil and from egoism and to resist temptations to violence, to
impurity and to drugs.
I promise you to go to confession often and to receive Jesus into my heart as my spiritual food of
life, to observe the commandments of God, to walk along the road of love and of purity, and to
recite the holy rosary daily.
I want to be a witness of unity by my great love for the Pope, for my Bishop and for my Priests.
I love you, O sweetest Mother of mine, and I offer you my youth for the triumph of your
Immaculate Heart in the world.

For Children
O Virgin Mary, my Mother, I give to your Immaculate Heart my body and my soul, my thoughts
and my actions.
I want to be just what you want me to be, and do just what you want me to do.

I am not afraid because you are always with me.


Help me to love your Son, Jesus, with all my heart and above all things.
Take my hand in yours, so I can always be with you.
