Prayer to Jesus the Eternal Priest

‘O Jesus eternal High Priest, divine Offerer of Sacrifice, Who, in an incomparable transport of love for men, Thy brethren, didst allow the Christian priesthood to issue from Thy Sacred Heart, deign to continue to pour out on Thy priests the life-giving streams of Infinite Love. Live Thou in them, transform them into Thyself; render them by Thy grace the instruments of Thy mercies; act in them and through them, and grant, that, having been completely clothed with Thee by the faithful imitation of Thy adorable virtues, they may perform in Thy Name and by the strength of Thy Spirit, the works which Thou Thyself hast accomplished for the salvation of the world.

Divine Redeemer of souls, see how great is the multitude of those who still sleep in the darkness of error; count the number of those unfaithful sheep that are walking on the edge of the eternal abyss; consider the crowds of the poor, the hungry, the ignorant and the weak, who are groaning in their state of abandonment. Return to us by Thy priests, live again in very truth in them; act through them and pass again through the world teaching, pardoning, consoling, offering sacrifice, renewing the sacred bonds of love between the Heart of God and the hearts of men. Amen.’

Act of Consecration and Donation of oneself to Infinite Love

O Infinite Love, Eternal God, Principle of life, Source of being, I adore Thee In Thy sovereign Unity and in the Trinity of Thy Persons.

I adore Thee in the Father, omnipotent Creator Who has made all things. I adore Thee in the Son, eternal Wisdom by Whom all things have been made, the Word of the Father, incarnate in time in the womb of the Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ, Redeemer and King. I adore Thee In the Holy Ghost, substantial Love of the Father and the Son, in Whom are light, strength and fruitfulness.

I adore Thee, Infinite Love, hidden in all the mysteries of our Faith, shedding Thy beneficent rays in the Blessed Eucharist, overflowing on Calvary and giving life to the Church by the channels of the Sacraments, I adore Thee throbbing in the Heart of Jesus, Thine ineffable Tabernacle, and I consecrate myself to Thee.

I give myself to Thee without fear with the fullness of my will; take possession of my being, penetrate it entirely. I am but a nothing, powerless to serve Thee, it is true, but it is Thou, Infinite Love, Who hast given to this nothing and Who dost draw it to Thee.

Behold me then, O Jesus, come to do Thy work of love to labour to the utmost of my capacity in bringing to Thy priests, and through them to the entire world, the knowledge of Thy mercies and of the sublime and tender love of Thy Heart.

I wish to accomplish Thy will, whatever it may cost me; even to the shedding of my blood, if my blood be not unworthy to flow for Thy glory.

O Mary, Immaculate Virgin whom Infinite Love has rendered fruitful, It Is by thy virginal hands that I give and consecrate myself.

Obtain for me the grace to be humble and faithful, and to devote myself without reserve to the interests of Jesus Christ Thy adorable Son and to the glory of His Sacred Heart!

Pope Pius XI granted the following indulgences to members for the recitation of this prayer: 300 days toties quoties; plenary once a month, if recited daily.



Vow of Abandonment

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque tells us in her autobiography that early in her religious life, Our Lord demanded of her the sacrifice of her liberty and her whole being, and that she made it to Him Later on He demanded that this sacrifice be made in the form of a vow to do always what was most perfect; this vow she made, in greatest detail, after consulting her Superiors. He made similar demands from Sister Louise Margaret; first He demanded of her a vow of total abandonment to His will, and later on, He demanded a donation of her whole being to Infinite Love.

She made the vow of abandonment on the First Friday of August, 1895, with the consent of her confessor and her superiors, according to the following formula:

“O my God, prostrate in Thy presence, I adore Thy infinite perfection, I adore Thy sovereign dominion over all Thy creatures and, in order to recognise Thy dominion over me, I make a vow of total abandonment of my whole being into Thy hands, allowing Thee to dispose of me according to Thy good pleasure, for time and eternity,”

“O Jesus, I abandon myself without reserve to Thy divine Heart, giving Thy love entire liberty of action in me and around me, wishing to see only Thy action in all things and to adore every disposition of Thy will.”



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.”
