MAY PRAYER OF DEVOTION TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY.

Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for use on First Saturdays. O Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth, and tender Mother of your people, in accordance with your ardent wish made known at Fatima, I consecrate to your Immaculate Heart myself, my brothers and sisters, my country and the whole human race. Reign over us, Most Holy Mother of God, and teach us how to make the Heart of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ reign and triumph in us even as it has reigned and triumphed in you. Reign over us, dearest Mother, that we may be yours 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 you have lamented so sorrowfully at Fatima. We want to be pure like you. We want to atone for the many sins committed against Jesus and you. 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 your 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 you five decades of the rosary each day together with our sacrifices in a spirit of reparation and penance. Amen.


With my Blessings,

Fr Jonathon
