Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

"Adorable Heart of Jesus, most tender, most amiable, the most generous of all hearts; penetrated with gratitude at the sight of Thy benefits, I come to consecrate myself wholly and unreservedly to Thee!

I wish to devote all my energies to propagating Thy worship and winning, if possible, all hearts to Thee.  Receive my heart this day, O Jesus!  Or rather take it, change it, purify it, to render it worthy of Thee; make it humble, gentle, patient, faithful and generous like Thine, by inflaming it with the fire of Thy love.  Hide it in Thy Divine Heart with all hearts that love Thee and are consecrated to Thee.

Never permit me to take my heart from Thee again.  Let me rather die than grieve Thy adorable Heart.  Thou knowest O Heart of Jesus, that the desire of my heart is to love Thee always, to be wholly Thine in life and in death, in time and eternity.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.  Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in Thee."

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

"I, (name), a faithless sinner, renew and ratify today in thy hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism. I renounce Satan, his pomps and works, and I give myself to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to him than I have ever been before.

In the presence of all the Heavenly court, I choose thee this day as my Loving Mother. I deliver and consecrate to thee, as thy child, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present and future; leaving to thee the entire and full right of disposing of me and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to thy good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and eternity. Amen."

The Divine Mercy Chaplet

The Sign of the Cross

In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

The Our Father

"Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen."

The Hail Mary

"Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen."

The Apostles’ Creed

"I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell and on the third day He arose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting, Amen."

For five decades, at the start of each decade, on the Our Father beads, pray the following:

"Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world."

Then, on the Hail Mary beads pray the following (ten times):

V.  For the sake of His sorrowful Passion,

R.  Have mercy on us and on the whole world.

In conclusion, pray the following (three times):

"Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, Have mercy on us and on the whole world."

At this time the following aspiration is traditionally added (three times):

"O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You."

The Sign of the Cross

In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

Prayers after the Rosary

The “Hail Holy Queen”

"Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of mercy; our life, our sweetness and our hope.  To thee we cry, poor banished children of Eve, mourning and sighing in this valley of tears. Turn then, O most gracious  advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us; and after this, our exile, show unto us the most Blessed Fruit of thy womb, Jesus.  O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary; pray for us O holy Mother of God; that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ."

The "Prayer after the Rosary"

 “And let us pray:

"O God, Whose only Begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; grant, we beseech Thee, that by meditating on the mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain, and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ, Our Lord, Amen."

The Divine Invocation

"May the Divine assistance remain always with us; and may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace, Amen."

Prayer for the Holy Father

“The Lord preserve him and give him life and make him blessed upon the earth; and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies.”

Please Pray: Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

“Lord, Source of eternal life and truth, give to Thy shepherd, Benedict, a spirit of courage and right judgment, a spirit of knowledge and love.  By governing with fidelity those entrusted to his care may he, as successor to the apostle Peter and the Vicar of Christ, build your Church into a sacrament of unity, love and peace for all the world.  We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who lives and reigns with Thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.”

Angel of Peace Prayer from Fatima

The Archangel Gabriel prostrated himself and repeated three times to the children of Fatima:

“My God, I believe, I adore, I trust and I love Thee!  I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not trust and do not love Thee.

Then he continued:

“Most Holy Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – I adore Thee profoundly.  I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences whereby He is offended.  And through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.”

Mary, Queen of the Holy Rosary, pray for us. 

Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us.

Mary, Our Loving Mother, pray for us. 

St. Joseph, pray for us.

The Sign of the Cross

† In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
