Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

My loving Jesus, I (N. N.) give thee my heart, and I consecrate myself wholly to thee, out of the grateful love I bear thee, and as a reparation for all my unfaithfulness to grace; and I purpose with thine aid, never to sin again.

I. Reflection

Most loving Jesus! My heart leaps for joy in thinking on thy loving sacred heart, all tenderness and sweetness for sinful man; and with trust unbounded, it never doubts thy ready welcome. Ah, me! my sins! How many and how great! With Peter and Magdalen in tears, I mourn and despise them because they are an offense to thee, my sole and chief good. Grant me, oh, grant me pardon for them all! O may I die, I beseech thee, by thy loving heart, may I die rather than offend thee, and may I live only to correspond to thy love!

Say the Our Father once, 

The Glory Be to the Father five times: and then:

O sweetest heart of Jesus! I implore That I may ever love thee more and more.

II. Reflection

My Jesus! I bless thy most humble heart; and I give thanks to thee, who, in making it my model, not only dost urge me, with much pressing, to imitate it, but, at the cost of so many humiliations, dost thyself stoop to point me out the path, and smooth for me the way to follow thee. Foolish and ungrateful that I am, how have I wandered far away from thee! Mercy, my Jesus, mercy! Away, hateful pride and love of worldly honor! With a humble heart, I wish to follow thee, my Jesus, through humiliation and the cross and thus gain peace and salvation. Only be thou at hand to strengthen me, and I will ever bless thy Sacred Heart.

Pray The Our Father prayer once,

Glory be to the Father live times.

O sweetest heart of Jesus! I implore That I may ever love thee more and more.

III. Reflection

My Jesus! I marvel at thy most patient heart, and I thank thee for all those wondrous examples of unwearied patience which thou didst leave me to guide me on my way. It grieves me that I have still to reproach myself with my excessive sensitivity,  shrinking from the slightest pain. O pour, then, into my heart, dear Jesus, eager and enduring love of suffering and of the cross, of mortification and of penance, that, following thee to Calvary, I may with thee attain to Glory, and to the joys of paradise!

Our Father once, 

Glory be to the Father five times.

O sweetest Heart of Jesus, etc. (above)

IV. Reflection

Dear Jesus! At the sight of thy most gentle heart, I shudder to see how unlike mine is to thine, since at a shadow, at a look, at a word of opposition, I fret and grieve. O, then, pardon my excesses, and give me grace, that in every contradiction, I may follow the example of thy unchangeable meekness and so enjoy an everlasting holy peace.

Our Father once, Glory be to the Father five times.

O sweetest Heart of Jesus, etc.

V Reflection:

Sing praise to Jesus for his most generous heart, the conqueror of death and hell; yet never wilt thou reach its due with all thy praise. More than ever am I confounded, looking upon my coward heart, which, through human respect, dreads even a passing word. Courage, my soul! It shall be so with thee no more, My Jesus; I pray thee for such strength that, fighting and conquering on earth, I may one day rejoice triumphantly with thee in heaven.

Our Father once, Glory be to the Father five times.

O sweetest Heart of Jesus, etc.

Let us turn to Mary, consecrating ourselves to her more and more and, trusting in her maternal heart, let us say to her:

By the precious gifts of thy sweetest heart, obtain for me, great Mother of my God, and my Mother Mary, a true and lasting devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, thy well-beloved Son, that, united in every thought and affection with that heart, I may fulfill all the duties of my state of life with ready heart, serving ray Jesus ever more, but especially on this day.

Heart of Jesus burning with? Love for us.

Inflame our hearts with the love of thee.

LET US PRAY.

Lord, we pray thee, let thy Holy Spirit kindle in our hearts that fire of charity which our Lord Jesus Christ, thy Son, sent forth from his inmost heart upon this earth, and willed that it should burn with vehemence. Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen

O God! Who out of Thy immense love hast given to the faithful the most Sacred Heart of Thy Son, our Lord, as the object of Thy tender affection; grant, we beseech Thee, that we may so love and honor this pledge of Thy love on earth, as by it to merit the love of Thee and Thy gift and be eternally loved by Thee and this most blessed heart in heaven; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Through Thy Sacred Heart, O Jesus! Overflowing with all sweetness, we recommend to Thee ourselves and all our concerns, our friends, benefactors, parents, our relations, our superiors, and our enemies; take under thy protection this house, city, and country; extend Thy care to all such as lie under any affliction, and to those who labor in the agony and pangs of death; cast an eye of compassion on the obstinate sinner, and more particularly on the poor suffering souls in purgatory, as well as on those who are engaged and united with us in the holy confederacy of honoring and worshipping Thee. Bless these in particular, O divine Jesus! and bless them according to the extent of Thy infinite goodness, mercy, and charity. Amen.

May the Heart of Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament be praised, adored, and loved with grateful affection at every moment, in all the tabernacles of the world, even to the end of time. Amen
