Prayer of Consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary
Thank you for the requests I have received to share the prayer of Consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary that we prayed together at the Masses last weekend, September 26/27. The prayer that follows is an adaptation of the prayer Saint Aloysius Gonzaga (1568-1591) composed.

O Immaculate Heart of Mary, I have nothing to offer you that is worthy of you; but I give you thanks for all the favors that you have obtained for me from the Heart of Jesus! I desire to return you love for love. The only good that I possess is the Sacred Heart of Jesus that you yourself have given me. I offer you this treasure of infinite price; I cannot do more, and you do not deserve less at my hands. Receiving from me this gift most precious in your sight be pleased, I beseech you, to accept my heart that I here offer to you, and I shall be forever blessed. Amen.
