Immaculate Mother of God,
Queen of heaven,
Mother of mercy,
Advocate and Refuge of sinners,
enlightened and inspired
by the graces obtained for me
abundantly from the divine treasury
through thy maternal affection,
resolve this day and always
to place my heart into thy hands
to be consecrated to Jesus.
To thee, therefore, most Blessed Virgin,
in the presence of nine choirs of Angels
and all the Saints, I now give it.
Do thou, in my name, consecrate it to Jesus;
and out of the filial confidence
which I hereby make profession of,
I am certain that now and always
thou wilt do all thou canst to bring it
to pass that my heart may ever wholly belong to Jesus,
and may imitate perfectly the example of the Saints,
and in particular that of Saint Joseph,
thy most pure Spouse. Amen.
St. Vincent Pallotti (1798-1850)
