Treasures of the Church - St. Louis de Montfort's Consecration
to Jesus through Mary
of Oneself to Jesus Through Mary
Louis Marie Grignon de Montfort)
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
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
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!
