Lord Jesus, I consecrate my life to Your most Sacred Heart. I believe You died for my redemption. I throw myself at Your feet, imploring Your Divine Mercy and Compassion. Through Your grace may I seek Your will in all things, in all aspects of my life. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You!

Dear Blessed Virgin Mary, you are the mother of my Savior. Accept me as your child as well. I consecrate myself to your Immaculate Heart. Teach me your humility and love for all mankind. Help me to always seek the peace promised us by your Son. Be my intercessor, that through your Immaculate Heart, I may be guided ever closer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
