Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus – St. John Paul II

Lord Jesus Christ,

Redeemer of the human race,

to your most Sacred Heart

we turn with humility and trust,

with reverence and hope,

with a deep desire to give to you

glory and honour and praise.

 

Lord Jesus Christ,

Saviour of the world,

we thank you for all that you are

and all that you do for the little flock

and all the twelve million people

living in this Archdiocese of Delhi,

which includes those entrusted

with the stewardship of this nation.

 

Lord Jesus Christ,

Son of the Living God,

we praise you for the love

that you have revealed

through your Sacred Heart,

which was pierced for us

and which has become the fountain

of our joy, the source of our eternal life.

 

Gathered together in your Name,

which is above all other names,

we consecrate ourselves to your most Sacred Heart,

in which dwells the fullness of truth and charity.

 

In consecrating themselves to you,

the faithful renew their desire

to respond in love

to the rich outpouring of your merciful love.

 

Lord Jesus Christ,

King of love and Prince of peace,

reign in our hearts and in our homes.

Conquer all the powers of evil

and bring us to share in the victory of your Sacred Heart.

May all we say and do give glory

and praise to you and to the Father

and the Holy Spirit,

one God living

and reigning for ever and ever.

 

Amen.

Prayer of St. John Paul II for vocations

Jesus, Son of God, in whom the fullness of the Divinity dwells, You call all the baptized to ” put out into the deep”, taking the path that leads to holiness. Waken in the hearts of young people the desire to be witnesses in the world of today to the power of your love. Fill them with your Spirit of fortitude and prudence, so that they may be able to discover the full truth about themselves and their own vocation. Our Saviour, sent by the Father to reveal His merciful love, give to your Church the gift of young people who are ready to put out into the deep, to be the sign among their brothers of Your presence which renews and saves.Holy Virgin, Mother of the Redeemer, sure guide on the way towards God and towards neighbour, You who pondered his word in the depth of your heart, sustain with your motherly intercession our families and our ecclesial communities, so that they may help adolescents and young people to answer generously the call of the Lord. Amen.
