An Act of Consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary

Holy Mary, Mother of God and Virgin, I choose thee this day for my queen, patron, and advocate, and firmly resolve and purpose never to abandon thee, never to say or do anything against thee, nor to permit that aught be done by others to dishonour thee. Receive me, then, I conjure thee, as thy perpetual servant; assist me in all my actions, and do not abandon me at the hour of my death. Amen. — St. John Berchmans

Devotions to the Mother of God


O Lord Jesus,  
you lived in the home of Mary and Joseph in Nazareth.  
There you grew in age, wisdom and grace  
as you prepared to fulfill your mission as our Redeemer.  
We entrust our family to you
O Blessed Mary,  
you are the Mother of our Saviour.  
At Nazareth you cared for Jesus  
and nurtured him in the peace and joy of your home.  
We entrust our family to you.  
O Saint Joseph,  
you provided a secure and loving home for Jesus and Mary,  
and gave us a model of fatherhood  
while showing us the dignity of work.  
We entrust our family to you.  
Holy Family,  
We consecrate ourselves and our family to you.  
May we be completely united  
in a love that is lasting, faithful and open to the gift of new life.  
Help us to grow in virtue,  
to forgive one another from our hearts,  
and to live in peace all our days.  
Keep us strong in faith, persevering in prayer,  
diligent in our work, and generous to those in need.  
May our home, O Holy Family, truly become a domestic church  
where we reflect your example in our daily life. Amen 
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, pray for us!
