Dear God, open a door for my message, so that I may proclaim the mystery of Christ. I pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Colossians 4:3-4

Pope Francis ~ Prayer of Consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary


The Holy Father, Consecrates the World to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on 13 October, 2013. This day also marks the 96th anniversary of the apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary to shepherd children Jacinta Marto, her younger brother Francisco and LĂșcia dos Santos at Fatima. 
More than 100 thousand people came to St Peter’s Square on Sunday to witness Pope Francis entrust the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. 
Here is the translation of the prayer of consecration recited by Pope Francis in consecrating the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Holy Mary Virgin of Fatima,
with renewed gratitude for your maternal presence
we join our voice to that of all the generations
who call you blessed.
We celebrate in you the works of God,
who never tires of looking down with mercy
upon humanity, afflicted with the wound of sin,
to heal it and save it.
Accept with the benevolence of a Mother
the act of consecration 
that we perform today with confidence,
before this image of you that is so dear to us.
We are certain that each of us is precious in your eyes
and that nothing of all that lives in our hearts 
is unknown to you.
We let ourselves be touched by your most sweet regard
and we welcome the consoling caress of your smile.
Hold our life in your arms:
bless and strengthen every desire for good;
revive and nourish faith;
sustain and enlighten hope;
awaken and animate charity;
guide all of us along the path of holiness.
Teach us your own preferential love
for the little and the poor,
for the excluded and the suffering,
for sinners and the downhearted:
bring everyone under your protection
and entrust everyone to your beloved Son, 
Our Lord Jesus.
Amen.
