Lord Jesus, I consecrate my life to Your most Sacred Heart. I believe
You died for my redemption. I throw myself at Your feet, imploring Your
Divine Mercy and Compassion. Through Your grace may I seek Your will in
all things, in all aspects of my life. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust
Dear Blessed Virgin Mary, you are the mother of my Savior. Accept me
as your child as well. I consecrate myself to your Immaculate Heart. Teach
me your humility and love for all mankind. Help me to always seek the peace
promised us by your Son. Be my intercessor, that through your Immaculate
Heart, I may be guided ever closer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
