Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Most Pure Mother, I want to consecrate to You my heart, my will, my whole life.
Take me to the Heart of your Divine Son Jesus, so that He may dwell in me.
I want to be totally yours, my mother. And from today serve you faithfully in what you send me.
Be sweet company in my life, do not let me ever separate from You,
and at the hour of death come and find me to enjoy eternity in Your company.
Blessed and praised are you forever, My Mother.
Jacinta of Fatima's favourite short prayer
“Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation!”
The devotion of the three Hail Marys
Jesus said: “What good will it be for a man to win the whole world if he loses his soul? ...” And those words were repeated by Saint Ignatius of Loyola, remembering that the most important business is to achieve eternal salvation.
Do you want to save yourself?... Entrust yourself to the Virgin Mary, who is omnipotent in supplicating her Divine Son.
Ask her for her protection as a Mother, praying every day THREE HAIL MARYS, remembering the privileges with which the Holy Trinity enriched her (the power that God-Father gave her, the wisdom that God-Son communicated to her, and the mercy with which God-Holy Spirit filled her).
The Immaculate Virgin promised Saint Matilde and other saints that whosoever prays the THREE HAIL MARYS daily will have her help during life and her special assistance at the time of death.
Therefore Saint Alphonsus Maria de Liguori insistently recommended the prayer of the THREE HAIL MARYS, and Saint Leonard of Port Maurice fervently preached this devotion, by saying: “Oh, what a holy practice of piety! This is a very effective means of ensuring your salvation.”
1st: Mary, my Mother, save me from falling into mortal sin! By the power that the Eternal Father granted you.
2nd: For the wisdom that the Son gave you.
3rd: For the love that the Holy Spirit gave you.
