Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart
O, Sacred Heart of Jesus, * Who didst make known to St. Margaret Mary Thine ardent desire to reign over Christian families, * behold us assembled here today * to proclaim Thine absolute dominion over our home.
Henceforth, we purpose to lead a life like unto Thine * so that amongst us may flourish the virtues * for which Thou didst promise peace on earth, * and for this end * we will banish from our midst * the spirit of the world which Thou dost abhor so much.
Thou wilt reign over our understanding * by the simplicity of our faith. * Thou wilt reign over our hearts *
by an ardent love for Thee; * and may the flame of this love * be ever kept burning in our hearts * by the frequent reception of the Holy Eucharist.
Deign, O Divine Heart, * to preside over our meetings, * to bless our undertakings both spiritual and temporal, * to banish all worry and care, * to sanctify our joys * and soothe our sorrows. * If any of us * should ever have the misfortune to grieve Thy Sacred Heart, * remind him of Thy goodness and mercy * towards the repentant sinner.
Lastly * when the hour of separation will sound * and death will plunge our home into mourning, * then shall we all and every one of us * be resigned to Thy eternal decrees, * and seek consolation in the thought * that we shall one day be reunited in heaven, * where we shall sing the praises and blessings of Thy Sacred Heart * for all eternity.
May the Immaculate Heart of Mary * and the glorious Patriarch St. Joseph * offer Thee this our consecration * and remind us of the same all the days of our life. Glory to the Divine Heart of Jesus, * our Redeemer and our King! Amen
