The Raccolta, 1903, Imprimatur
16. AN ACT OF CONSECRATION,
COMPOSED BY BL. MARGARET MARY ALACOQUE.
I, N. N., give and consecrate
to the Sacred Heart
of Jesus Christ my person and my life, all my actions,
pains and sufferings, resolved
of not using any por-
tion of my own self but for his honor, love and glory.
My irrevocable determination is to be entirely his,
and to do everything for his love, renouncing with
all my heart any act that may displease him.
I do choose
you, O most Sacred Heart, for the
only object of my love, the protector of my life, the
security of my salvation,
the safeguard against my
frailty and fickleness, the reparation for my delin-
quencies in life, and my most
secure refuge in the
hour of death.
Be yourself, O bountiful Heart, my justification
before your Divine Father, and defend me from the
of his just wrath. O most loving Heart, I
place all my trust in you, for I am afraid of my own
weakness, but all my hope rests with your
Destroy, then, in me whatever may displease you
or resist you; would that the pure love of you be so
deeply imprinted in my heart that I could never
forsake you or be separated from you.
I beseech you, by all your mercies towards me,
that my name may be written in you ; since I crave but
one thing, that all my happiness and glory may be to
live and to die as your most humble servant. Amen.
His Holiness, Leo XIII, by a rescript of the S. Congr. of
Indulgences, January 13, 1898, granted to all the faithful who
