Act of Entrustment and Consecration of Priests to the Immaculate Heart of Mary   versione testuale

Immaculate Mother, in this place of grace,called together by the love of your Son Jesusthe Eternal High Priest,
we, sons in the Son and his priests,consecrate ourselves to your maternal Heart,in order to carry out faithfully the Father’s Will.
We are mindful that, without Jesus,we can do nothing good (cf. Jn 15:5)and that only through him, with him and in him,will we be instruments of salvation for the world.
Bride of the Holy Spirit,obtain for us the inestimable gift
of transformation in Christ.Through the same power of the Spirit
that overshadowed you,making you the Mother of the Saviour, help us
to bring Christ your Son to birth in ourselves too.May the Church be thus renewed by priests
who are holy, priests transfigured by the grace
of him who makes all things new.
Mother of Mercy, it was your Son Jesus
who called us to become like him: light of the world and salt of the earth (cf. Mt 5:13-14).
Help us, through your powerful intercession,never to fall short of this sublime vocation,nor to give way to our selfishness, to the allurements
of the world and to the wiles of the Evil One.
Preserve us with your purity,guard us with your humilityand enfold us with your maternal lovethat is reflected in so many souls consecrated to you, who have become for us true spiritual mothers.
