"O Sacred Heart of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to Thee I
consecrate and offer up my person and my life, my actions, trials
and sufferings, that my entire being may henceforth only be employed
in loving, honoring and glorifying Thee. This is my irrevocable
will, to belong entirely to Thee, and to do all for Thy love,
renouncing with my whole heart all that can displease Thee.
"I take Thee, O Sacred Heart, for the sole object of my love, the
protection of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my
frailty and inconstancy, the reparation for all the defects of my
life, and my secure refuge at the hour of my death. . . I fear all
from my own weakness and malice, but placing my entire confidence in
Thee, O Heart of Love, I hope for all from Thine infinite goodness.
Annihilate in me all that can displease or resist Thee. Imprint Thy
pure love so deeply in my heart that I may never forget Thee or be
separated from Thee. I beseech Thee, through Thine infinite
goodness, grant that my name be engraved on Thy Heart for in this I
place all my happiness and all my glory, to live and to die as one
of Thy devoted servants. Amen.
