Consecrations to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
by Saint Alphonsus Liguori
Consecration Prayer to Mary
Queen of Heaven, most Holy Mary, I was once a Slave of Sin, but now I Consecrate myself to thee as thy Client forever.
I give myself to Thine Honor and Service for the Rest of my Life. Do not reject me as I deserve, but accept me as thy Servant. I have
placed all my Hope in thee as my Mother. I Bless and Thank Almighty God, because in His Mercy, He has given me this Confidence in thee.
It is true that in the past I have Shamefully Fallen into Sin; but I Trust that, through thy Prayers and the Merits of
Jesus Christ, I have been Forgiven. But yet, my Mother, this is not enough. One fear I have which troubles me: that I may Fall into
Sin again and Lose the Grace of God. The Dangers are Constant; my Enemies never sleep; and new Temptations will assail me.
O my Lady,
Protect me. Help me in the Assaults of Hell, so I may never again Offend thy Divine Son Jesus. Let not the same thing happen again,
that I Lose my Soul, Heaven, and God. This is the Grace I beg of thee, O Mary; this is what I long for; obtain this Grace for me
through thy Prayers. So I Hope. So may it be.
Consecration of Family to Mary
Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Immaculate Queen and Mother, the Refuge and Consolation of all Troubled Souls! I kneel here
before thee with my Family and choose thee for my Lady, Mother, and Advocate with God. I dedicate myself and all who belong to me to
thy Service forever.
I beg thee, O Mother of God, to receive us into the Company of thy Servants. Take us under thy Protection. Help
us in Life and at the Hour of our Death. Mother of Mercy, I name thee Lady and Queen of my Family and Relatives, my Interests and all
my Undertakings. Take charge of them; dispose of everything as it pleases thee. Bless me and all my Family. Never let any of us Offend
thy Son. In every Temptation, Defend us; Protect us in every Danger; Provide for us in the Necessities of Life; Counsel us in Doubt;
Comfort us in every Sorrow, in every Sickness, and especially in the Final Sorrow of Death.
Never let the Powers of Hell boast that they have Enslaved any of those who here Consecrate themselves to thee.
Grant that we may all enter into Heaven to Thank thee and, in thy Company, to Praise and Love Jesus our Redeemer for all Eternity.
So I Hope. So may it be.
Consecration Prayer #2 to Mary
Most Holy Virgin Mary, Mother of God, I am not Worthy to be thy Servant. But moved by thy Marvelous Compassion and
my own Desire to Serve thee, here and now, in the Presence of my Guardian Angel and the Whole Court of Heaven, I choose thee as my
Lady, Advocate, and Mother. I Firmly Purpose to Love and Serve thee always, and to do all I can to Inspire others to Love and Serve thee.
O Mother of God and my own most Compassionate Mother, I Beseech thee, by the Blood which thy Son shed for me, to
receive me into the Number of thy Servants as thy Child and Servant forever. Assist me in all my Thoughts, Words, and Actions in
every Moment of my Life, so that every step I take, every breath I draw, may be directed to the Greater Glory of my God.
Through your Powerful Intercession, may I never again Offend my Beloved Jesus. Help me to Love and Glorify Him in
this Life. Help me to Love thee also, Dear and Beloved Mother, and to go on Loving thee forever in the Happiness of Heaven.
My Mother Mary, I Commend my Soul to thee now, and especially at the Moment of Death. So I Hope. So may it be.
Our Lady of Refuge
Most Holy, Immaculate Virgin and my Mother Mary! To thee who art the Mother of my Lord, the Queen of the World, the Advocate, the
Hope, and the Refuge of Sinners, I have recourse today, I who am the most miserable of all.
I render thee my most Humble Homage, O Great Queen, and I thank thee for all the Graces thou hast conferred on me
until now, especially for having delivered me from Hell, which I have so often deserved. I Love thee, O most Amiable Lady; and for
the Love which I bear thee, I promise to serve thee always and to do all in my Power to make others Love thee also. I place in thee
all my Hopes; I Confide my Salvation to thy care.
Accept me for thy Servant and receive me under thy Mantle, O Mother of Mercy. And since thou art so Powerful with God,
deliver me from all Temptations; or rather, obtain for me the Strength to Triumph over them until Death. Of thee I ask a Perfect Love
for Jesus Christ. Through thee I Hope to Die a Good Death. O my Mother, by the Love which thou bearest to God, I beseech thee to help
me at all times, but especially at the Last Moment of my Life. Leave me not, I beseech thee, until thou seest me Safe in Heaven,
Blessing thee and Singing thy Mercies for all Eternity. So I Hope. So may it be.
