Consecration of an Unborn Child to Jesus and Mary

Dear Blessed Mother, we gather here in your presence and in the presence of your Son, the Almighty God, here present in the tabernacle and in our hearts. We ask you, Blessed Mother, in union with your Spouse, the Holy Spirit, to be the safeguard of this little child at birth and throughout its life. We ask you, dear Lady, to keep your mantle over this little one as well as (name), the mother. We come to you to consecrate this child to your Immaculate Heart and to the Heart of your Son. Please give this child your special blessing now and for eternity, and guard it from all the evils of the world.
In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti, Amen.
(In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.)

Imprimatur: Most Reverend Daniel E. Pilarczyk,
Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati
