    A MOTHER'S CONSECRATION OF HER CHILD TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY


    I was speaking with a friend a few days ago and she mentioned that when her father was dying in 2016, she asked him what to do with her sisters who were away from the Church, and he said, "Bernadette don't worry about them, your mother and I consecrated all of you to The Blessed Virgin Mary."

    I was in awe, yes, I had seen a couple of mothers Consecrating their babies to Our Lady over the years but, not once did it enter into my head that I should do the same. I can't ever remember hearing a sermon telling us to Consecrate our little ones and to pray for them. I suppose most of us older mother's just missed out knowing as Vatican ll took over.

    This sin of omission, and with remorse I will beg for Our Lord to forgive me and to be able to make reparation for it by prayers and sacrifices and that Our Blessed Mother will guide my children back to the True Faith.

    I then immediately lit a candle in front of Our Lady and consecrated my five adult children begging Her pardon for not having done it years ago, I do hope that in Our Lady's goodness She will overlook my negligence and spiritually take them as Her own. As a couple of my children's friends have just had babies, I thought it would be lovely to give them a copy of the prayer with the extra bonus of having the booklet True Baptism of Holy Mother Church for them in the same leaflet. (See attached pdf file)

    Hoping that this will help other mothers who are in fear for their children's salvation.

    The words of consecration are:

    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, N_____, 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.

    "But the power of Mary over all the devils will especially shine forth in the latter times,
    when Satan will lay his snares against her heel: that is to say, her humble slaves and her poor children,
    whom she will raise up to make war against him. They shall be little and poor in the world’s esteem,
    and abased before all like the heel, trodden underfoot and persecuted as the heel is by the other members of the body. But in return for this, they shall be rich in the grace
    of God, which Mary shall distribute to them abundantly. They shall be great and exalted
    before God in sanctity, superior to all other creatures by their lively zeal, and so well
    sustained with God’s assistance that, with the humility of their heel, in union with Mary, they shall
    crush the head of the devil and cause

    Jesus Christ to triumph."

    O Mary* Virgin most powerful and Mother of mercy, Queen of Heaven and Refuge of sinners* I consecrate myself to Thine Immaculate heart.

    I consecrate to thee my very being * and my whole life * all that I have * all that I love * all that I am * To thee I give my body * my heart * and my soul *
    to thee I give my home * my family * my country.* I desire that all that is in me and around me * to may belong to Thee * and may share in the benefits * of Thy motherly benediction.

    And that this act of Consecration * may be truly efficacious and lasting * I renew this day at thy feet * the promises of my Baptism. * I pledge myself to profess courageously and at all times the truths of my holy Faith and to live as befits a Catholic.

    I pledge myself * to keep the commandments of God and His Church * in particular to keep the Lord's Day .* I likewise pledge myself * to make the consoling practices of the Christian religion * and above all, Holy Communion * an integral part of my life in so far as I shall be able to do.

    Finally, we promise Thee * O glorious Mother of God * and loving Mother of men * to devote myself wholeheartedly to the service of thy blessed cult * in order to hasten and assure * through the sovereignty of Thine Immaculate Heart * the coming of the kingdom of the Sacred Heart * of thine adorable Son * in my own hearts and in those of all men * in my country and in all the wamorld, as in heaven, so on earth. Amen.
