Today is the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It is also the day I have chosen to end my 33 day retreat and consecrate myself to Jesus through Mary. Say an Ave for me today! Happy Feast of the Immaculate Heart! May she draw many souls to her Son, Jesus Christ!
I, Corey Dale Francis Bruns, a repentant sinner, renew and ratify today in your hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism. I renounce Satan and resolve to follow Jesus Christ even more closely than before.
Mary, I give you my heart. Please set it on fire with love for Jesus. Make it always attentive to his burning thirst for love and for souls. Keep my heart in your most pure Heart that I may love Jesus and the members of his Body with your own perfect love.
Mary, I entrust myself totally to you: my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions. Please make of me, of all that I am and have, whatever most pleases you. Let me be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands for bringing the greatest possible glory to God. If I fall, please lead me back to Jesus. Wash me in the blood and water that flow from his pierced side, and help me never to lose my trust in this fountain of love and mercy.
With you, O Immaculate Mother – you who always do the will of God – I unite myself to perfect consecration to Jesus as he offers himself in the Spirit to the Father for the life of the world. Amen.
