LIVING OUR CONSECRATION to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

For Priests

    

Virgin of Fatima, Mother of Mercy, Queen of Heaven and Earth, Refuge of Sinners, we who belong to the Marian Movement of Priests, called to form the cohort of your priests, today 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 and priestly consecration.

    

We further pledge to bring about in ourselves that interior conversion that will free us of all human attachment to ourselves, our career, our comforts, or to the easy compromises with the world so that, like you, we may be available only to do always the Will of the Lord.

   

And as we resolve to entrust to you, O Mother most sweet and merciful, our priesthood, so that you may dispose of it for all 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 celebration of the Holy Eucharist and the Liturgy of the Hours, the daily recitation of the holy rosary, the offering of holy Mass in your honor on the first Saturday of every month, and a religious and austere manner of life, that shall be a good example to all.

    

We further promise you the greatest loyalty to the Gospel, of which we shall always be genuine and courageous heralds, even, if necessary, to the shedding of our blood.  We promise loyalty to the Church, for whose service we have been consecrated.

    

Above all. we wish to be united with the Holy Father and the heirarchy, firmly adhering to all their directives, so as thus to set up a barrier to the growing confrontation directed against the Magisterium, that threatens the very foundation of the Church.

    

Under your maternal 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, we promise to lead the faithful entrusted to our care 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, not sparing even many of our brother priests, 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.

For the Youth

    

Virgin of Fatima, my dearly beloved Mother, I who belong to the Marian Movement of Priests consecrate myself today in a 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 and to walk along the road of love and of purity.

    

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

    

Mary, my dearest Mother, today I consecrate myself to you in a very special way.

    

I want to belong to you completely, and I ask You to be a Mother to me, teaching me and guiding me along the road which leads to Jesus.

    

I promise to do all I can to go to confession often, to go to Mass, and to receive Jesus in my heart in Holy Communion.

    

I love you, my dearest Mother.  Always help me and never leave me.
