Act of Consecration
O Mary, conceived without sin, wishing this day to place myself under Thy
protection, I choose Thee for my patroness, my advocate, my mistress and my
mother. At your feet I take the firm resolution of doing all in my power to
procure your glory and extend your service. I desire henceforth to belong
entirely to you, walking in your glorious footsteps and imitating your virtues:
your angelic purity, your profound humility, your perfect obedience, and your
I, , prostrate myself at the foot of Thy altar, O Immaculate Mary, to express the ardent desire of my heart to be numbered among your privilaged children. To merit this favor I make in your presence, O tender Mother, the firm resolution of laboring with all my might to become by my piety, charity and obedience, the edification of my companions, and to acquire the virtues which you demand of your faithful children. O Mary, you know my weakness and my need. Come to my assistance, O Powerful Advocate, and obtain for me, from your Divine Son, perseverance in my good resolutions and the grace of being faithful to them all my life, that I may deserve to be your child on earth and in heaven. Amen
I am Thine and all that I have is Thine, O Most Loving Jesus, through Mary, Thy Most Holy Mother.
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee.
My Queen and my Mother, I offer myself entirely to Thee. And to show my devotion to Thee, I offer Thee this day, my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart, my whole being, without reserve. Wherfore, good Mother, keep me and guard me as thy property and possession. Amen
Prayer to St. Philomena
O, most pure virgin and glorious martyr, St. Philomena, whom God has revealed to the world in these unhappy times in order to help restore the faith, sustain the hope and stir up the charity of Christian souls - behold me here present before you and receive my prayers. Obtain for me that purity for which you sacrificed all the passing pleasures of this world; that strength of soul which made you resist the most terrible attacks and that ardent love for Our Lord Jesus Christ which the most painful tortures could not destroy - so that by imitating you in this life, I may one day be crowned with you in heaven. Amen
St. Philomena, powerful with God, pray for us.
