Prayer of Consecration 

 

Holy Mary Mother of God, 

as we stand at the gate of a New Year, 

with renewed gratitude 

for your maternal presence with our Parish these years. 

We join our voice to that of all the generations who call you blessed.

We celebrate in you the works of God, 

who never tires of looking down with mercy upon humanity, 

afflicted with the wound of sin, to heal it and save it.

Accept with the benevolence of a Mother 

the act of consecration that we perform today with confidence, in this place that is so dear to us.

We are certain that each of us is precious in your eyes and that nothing of all that lives in our hearts is unknown to you.

We let ourselves be touched by your most sweet regard and we welcome the consoling caress of your smile.

Hold our life in your arms: bless and strengthen every desire for good;

revive and nourish faith;

sustain and enlighten hope;

awaken and animate charity;

guide all of us along the path of holiness.

Teach us your own preferential love

for the little and the poor,

for the excluded and the suffering,

for sinners and the downhearted:

bring everyone under your protection

and entrust everyone to your beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus. 

Amen
