ACT OF CONSECRATION

Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, refuge of the human race, Mother of the Church, we turn to you, confident that we shall receive mercy, grace, assistance and protection, through the great goodness of your Maternal Heart. To you and your Immaculate Heart, in this centenary year of the Apparitions at Fatima, we re-consecrate ourselves in union not only with the Church, the Mystical Body of your Son, but also with the entire world.

May the sight of the widespread material and moral destruction, the sorrows and anguish of countless fathers and mothers, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, and innocent children, and the souls in danger of being lost eternally move you to compassion.

O Mother of Mercy, Queen of Peace, through your intercession obtain peace for us from God through His grace; peace in truth, justice and charity, that the Kingdom of God may prevail.

Extend your protection to those who do not believe and do not find hope in God, and to all those still in the shadow of death; give them peace, and grant that on them, too, may shine the sun of truth, that they may unite with us in proclaiming before the one and only Saviour of the world: “Glory to God in the highest and peace to men of good will.”

Give peace to those who have separated themselves from you; bring them back to the fold of Christ under the one true shepherd. Obtain peace for the Holy Church of God; stop the spread of secularism and relativism; enkindle in the faithful the love of purity, the practice of Christian life, and an apostolic zeal so that the servants of God may increase in merit and number.

We consecrate ourselves forever to you and to your Immaculate Heart, Our Mother and Queen: that your love and patronage may hasten the triumph of the Kingdom of God, and that all nations, at peace with one another and with God, may proclaim you blessed, and with you may raise their voices to sing the everlasting Magnificat of glory, love and gratitude to the Heart of Jesus, where alone they can find truth and peace.
