Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

While Margaret was waiting to join the Visitation Convent in Romans she went on a pilgrimage to the Shrine of the Sacred Heart in Paray le Monial in France where Jesus had appeared to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque. She composed and made the following Act of Consecration of herself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

“O adorable Heart of my divine Saviour, I offer and consecrate myself entirely to Thee: my soul which Thou has created to Thy image; my intellect which Thou has enlightened with the lights of Thy faith; my heart which, after loving creatures, now wishes to love only Thee and to beat for Thee alone; my body which has contributed to, and shared in the wandering of my soul, but which wishes by penance to sustain and contribute to its uplifting; all the higher powers of my soul and the lower powers of my body, I give and abandon entirely to Thee. For the future I wish to have no other will but Thine, no other desire but that of pleasing Thee, no other love but Thy pure love. Amen.”
