|Consecration to Mary
My Queen and my Mother, I give myself
entirely to you; and to show my devotions to
you, I consecrate to you this day my eyes, my
ears, my mouth, my heart, my whole being
without reserve. Therefore, good Mother, as I

|To Our Blessed Mother
Mary, Mother of God, graciously hear our prayers,
and receive our petitions, which we united with
those of all the faithful on earth and of the angels
and saints in heaven. Intercede for us, most
loving Mother, and obtain for us the greatest of all
graces: to be faithful to you and your Son unto death,
and after death, to obtain the happiness in heaven
of praising, blessing, and thanking you, with all the
angels and saints, and with you, to love and honor
your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, together with the
Father and the Holy Spirit, through all eternity.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, or sought thine
intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins,
my mother; to thee do I come, before
thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions, but in
thy mercy hear and answer me.
|Mary, Our Mother
Mary, our Mother, bring to your Son
all our cares, concerns and worries,
all our hopes, fears and dreams for good,
all our struggles and weaknesses.
Protect and sustain those for whom
we pray, especially our children
and loved ones.
You who saw your Son's final agony
and risen glory, bring us the hope
of your own heart: that hope and
deep confidence that God will make
all things work unto good.
