Every year in the month of January or of June, each fraternity shall publicly make or renew its solemn consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and in the month of May or December, its consecration to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary, using the approved prayers. Constitution Article 68
Consecration of the Order to the Sacred Heart
V- O Jesus, present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar, with a humble and sincere heart and confiding in Your infinite mercy, we venture to renew the bond between the Third Order of our holy father Francis and Your Most Sacred Heart.
R- With this intention, we consecrate ourselves today entirely to You and promise to fulfil faithfully Your Divine will, to observe the Commandments, and to promote Your honor. We consecrate to You our person, our life, our actions, our trials and our sufferings. We consecrate to You our heart with all its emotions, with all its desires and intentions. O Jesus, take from us our sinful heart and give us a heart renewed and pure, that thus with the sacrifice of our heart we may please Your Most Sacred Heart. Watch over us continually, that we may serve You in justice, charity, and peace, and ever remain faithful children of Your Most Sacred Heart.
Sweet Jesus, loving Redeemer, look down on the threefold Order of St. Francis. Keep and protect it against all enemies.
Finally, dear Jesus, we beseech You in the name and by the merits of Your devoted servant our holy father Francis and all the saints, blessed, and elect of his threefold Order, bless Your beloved spouse, the Holy Catholic Church, and her visible head, Your Vicar on earth. Hasten the triumph and exaltation of Your Church, that Your name may be known, feared, loved and honored.
Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, refuge of the human race, victor in all God’s battles, we humbly prostrate ourselves before your throne, confident that we shall receive mercy, grace and bountiful assistance and protection in the present calamity, not through our own inadequate merits, but solely through the great goodness of your maternal heart.
To you, to your immaculate heart in this humanity’s tragic hour, we consign and consecrate ourselves in union not only with the Mystical Body of your Son, holy Mother Church, now in such suffering and agony in so many places and sorely tried in so many ways, but also with the entire world, torn by fierce strife, consumed in a fire of hate, victim of its own wickedness.
May the sight of the widespread material and moral destruction, of the sorrows and anguish of countless fathers and mothers, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, and innocent children, of the great number of lives cut off in the flower of youth, of the bodies mangled in horrible slaughter, and of the tortured and agonized souls in danger of being lost eternally, move you to compassion!
O Mother of Mercy, obtain peace for us from God, and above all procure for us those graces, which prepare, establish and assure peace!
Queen of Peace, pray for us and give the world now at war the peace for which all peoples are longing, peace in the truth, justice and charity of Christ. Give peace to the warring nations and to the souls of men, that in the tranquility of order the kingdom of God may prevail.
Extend your protection to the infidels and to all those still in the shadow of death: give them peace and grant that on them, too, may shine the sun of truth, that they may unite with us in proclaiming before the one and only Savior of the world “Glory to God in the highest and peace on earth to men of good will.”
Give peace to the peoples separated by error or by discord, and especially to those who profess such singular devotion to you and in whose home an honored place was ever accorded your venerated icon (today perhaps often kept hidden to await better days): bring them back to the one fold of Christ under the one true Shepherd.
Obtain peace and complete freedom for the Holy Church of God; stay the spreading flood of modern paganism; enkindle in the faithful the love of purity, that practice of Christian life, and apostolic zeal, so that the servants of God may increase in merit and in number.
Lastly, as the Church and the entire human race were consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, so that in reposing all hope in Him, He might become for them the sign and pledge of victory and salvation, so we consecrate ourselves forever also to you and to your Immaculate Heart, Our Mother and Queen, that our love and patronage may hasten the triumph of the kingdom of God, and that all nations, at peace with one another and with God, may proclaim you blessed and with you may raise their voices to resound from pole to pole in chanting the everlasting Magnificat of glory, love and gratitude to the Heart of Jesus, where alone they can find truth and peace.
