Act of Consecration to Our Lady of Loreto – 10 December – The Memorial of Our Lady and the Holy House of Loreto
O Immaculate Virgin Mary, we come to you with confidence:
welcome this day our humble prayer and our act of consecration.
O Mother, you did carry the Divine Saviour in your most pure womb:
receive our homage of faith and filial love as we come in spirit into your Holy House.
It is also, by the presence of the Holy Family, the holy home par excellence.
And it is our wish that every Christian family be inspired by it.
From Jesus, all children learn to obey and to work.
From you, O Mary, all women learn humility and the spirit of sacrifice.
From Joseph, who did live for Jesus and for you, all men learn to believe in God,
to live in the family and in society with fidelity and honesty.
O Mary, we pray for our Pope and for the Universal Church,
for our country and for all the nations of the world,
for the suffering souls for all sinners.
And we all wish to consecrate ourselves to you.
Spiritually present in the Holy House,
where you did conceive by the Holy Spirit,
we want to repeat with lively faith the words of the Archangel Gabriel:
“Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee!”
We want to invoke you still, saying:
“Hail Mary, Mother of Jesus and Mother of the Church!”
We turn to you, Mary.
Receive our consecration to your Immaculate heart.
Totally yours, we wish to confirm by this act of love our unlimited love for Jesus,
your Son, and our hope in you, our Mother.
And you, O Queen and Mother of Mercy,
grant to your children an abundance of heavenly blessings. Amen
