Prayer of Consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary

Today, we choose you, Mary, standing before all the saints, to be our mother and our queen.

We dedicate ourselves to you, in humility and love; our bodies and our souls, our gifts and our possessions, the merit of good deeds, those present, past, and still to come.

We freely give you the right to deal with us and everything we have, as you see fit, for the greater glory of God, both now and for eternity. Amen.

(St Louis-Marie Grignon de Montfort)
