Consecration of Oneself to Jesus Through Mary
(St. Louis Marie Grignon de Montfort)

Oh Jesus, Eternal and Incarnate Wisdom, true God and true man, only Son of the Eternal Father and of Mary ever Virgin. I adore you dwelling in the splendor of your Father from all eternity, and in the virginal womb of Mary, your Mother, at the time of your Incarnation.

I thank you for having emptied yourself in assuming the condition of a slave, to set me free form the cruel slavery of sin. I praise and glorify you for having willingly chosen to obey Mary, your holy Mother, in all things, so that through her, I may be your faithful disciple. Unfortunately, I have not kept the vows and promises which I made at my baptism and do not deserve to be called a child of God.

For this reason, I turn to the merciful intercession of your Mother, with the hope of obtaining, through her intercession, the forgiveness of my sins, and lasting communion with you, Incarnate Wisdom.

Hail Most Pure Virgin, living tabernacle of God, in whom the Eternal Wisdom willed to receive the adoration of both men and angels. I greet you as Queen of heaven and earth, for all that is under God has been made subject to you. Oh sure refuge of sinners, all experience your endless mercy. Grant the desire I have for divine Wisdom and of total consecration.

I, (N.....), a faithless sinner, renew and ratify today in your hands, the vows of my baptism. I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and his works, and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after him, all the days of my life, in fidelity to the will of the Father.

In the presence of the heavenly court, I choose you this day as my Mother and Queen. I surrender and consecrate to you, 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 you the right to dispose of me and of all that belongs to me, according to your good pleasure and for the greater glory of God in time and in eternity.

Accept, gracious Virgin, my offering and present it to your Son; so that as he redeemed me though you, so will he now receive me through you. May I live fully this consecration so as to prolong, in my life, your loving obedience to your Son and thus respond to the mission which God has confided to you in the work of salvation.

Oh Mother of Mercy, grant me the grace to obtain the true Wisdom of God, and, for this end, receive me among those whom you love, teach, guide, nourish and protect as your children and slaves.
Oh Virgin most faithful, make me in everything so perfect a disciple, imitator, and slave of Jesus, your Son, the Incarnate Wisdom, that I may attain through your intercession and example, the fullness of maturity in Christ on earth and his glory in heaven. Amen. Totus Tuus!
