An Act of
Consecration to The
Sacred Heart of Jesus
By Saint Margaret Mary
|I give myself and
consecrate to the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ,
my person and my life, my actions, pains and sufferings,
so that I may be unwilling to make use of any part of my
being other than to honor, love and glorify the Sacred
Heart. This is my unchanging purpose, namely, to be all
His, and to do all things for the love of Him, at the
same time renouncing with all my heart whatever is
displeasing to Him. I therefore take You, O Sacred heart,
to be the only object of my love, the guardian of my
life, my assurance of salvation, the remedy of my
weakness and inconstancy, the atonement for all the
faults of my life and my sure refuge at the hour of
Be then, O Heart of goodness, my justification before God the Father, and turn away from me the strokes of his righteous anger. O Heart of love, I put all my confidence in You, for I fear everything from my own wickedness and frailty, but I hope for all things from Your goodness and bounty.
Remove from me all that can displease You or resist Your holy will; let your pure love imprint Your image so deeply upon my heart, that I shall never be able to forget You or to be separated from You.
May I obtain from all Your loving kindness the grace of having my name written in Your Heart, for in You I desire to place all my happiness and glory, living and dying in bondage to You.
