Our Lady of Fatima
ACT OF CONSECRATION
IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
O Immaculate Heart of
Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth, and tender
Mother of men, in accordance with thy ardent wish made known at Fatima,
I consecrate to thee myself, my brethren, my country, and the whole
Reign over us and teach
us how to make the Heart of Jesus reign and
triumph in us, and around us, as It has reigned and triumphed in thee.
Reign over us, dearest
Mother, that we may be thine in prosperity and
adversity, in joy and in sorrow, in health and in sickness, in life and
O most compassionate
Heart of Mary, Queen of Virgins, watch over our
minds and hearts and preserve them from the deluge of impurity which
thou didst lament so sorrowfully at Fatima. We want to be pure like
thee. We want to atone for the many crimes committed against Jesus and
thee. We want to call down upon our country and the whole world the
peace of God in justice and charity.
Therefore, we now
promise to imitate thy virtues by the practice of a
Christian life without regard to human respect.
We resolve to receive
Holy Communion regularly and to offer thee five
decades or the Rosary each day, together with our sacrifices, in the
spirit of reparation and penance. Amen.
