An Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart
edit_button


One can consecrate themselves to the Sacred Heart any day of the year, but what better day than a day of love like Valentine's day. Today, please remember the Lord's love for you. The Eucharist is our Lord's Valentine, the greatest valentine because it is the Gift of Himself. There are many promises connected to devotion to the Sacred Heart.

Thanks to St. Peter's Helper for reminding me about the Sacred Heart today.

An Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart:

I give myself and consecrate to the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ, my person and my life, my actions, pains and sufferings, so that I may be unwilling to make use of any part of my being other than to honor, love and glorify the Sacred Heart. This is my unchanging purpose, namely, to be all His, and to do all things for the love of Him, at the same time renouncing with all my heart whatever is displeasing to Him. I therefore take You, O Sacred heart, to be the only object of my love, the guardian of my life, my assurance of salvation, the remedy of my weakness and inconstancy, the atonement for all the faults of my life and my sure refuge at the hour of death.

Be then, O Heart of goodness, my justification before God the Father, and turn away from me the strokes of his righteous anger. O Heart of love, I put all my confidence in You, for I fear everything from my own wickedness and frailty, but I hope for all things from Your goodness and bounty.

Remove from me all that can displease You or resist Your holy will; let your pure love imprint Your image so deeply upon my heart, that I shall never be able to forget You or to be separated from You.

May I obtain from all Your loving kindness the grace of having my name written in Your Heart, for in You I desire to place all my happiness and glory, living and dying in bondage to You.

Amen.

Praised be the Heart of Jesus!

Thank you so much for this :) I wanted to do something for Jesus on Valentine's Day, but I was too nervous to do anything, and then I saw this! Thank you!
