St. Maximilian Kolbe’s Consecration Prayer

January 12, 2022

Official Act of Consecration to Mary

Written by St. Maximilian Kolbe

O Immaculata, Queen of Heaven and earth, refuge of sinners and our most loving Mother, God has willed to entrust the entire order of mercy to you.  I, (name), a repentant sinner, cast myself at your feet humbly imploring you to take me with all that I am and have, wholly to yourself as your possession and property.  Please make of me, of all my powers of soul and body, of my whole life, death and eternity, whatever most pleases you.

If it pleases you, use all that I am and have without reserve, wholly to accomplish what was said of you: “She will crush your head,” and, “You alone have destroyed all heresies in the world.”  Let me be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands for introducing and increasing your glory to the maximum in all the many strayed and indifferent souls, and thus help extend as far as possible the blessed kingdom of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.  For wherever you enter, you obtain the grace of conversion and growth in holiness, since it is through your hands that all graces come to us from the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

V. Allow me to praise you, O sacred Virgin.

R. Give me strength against your enemies.

Official Act of Consecration to Mary in Latin

Actus Consecrationis BMV Immaculatae  (cf. KW 37)

O Immaculata, coeli et terrae Regina, refugium peccatorum et Mater nostra amorosissima, Tu cui Deus totum ordinem misericordiae committi voluit, ego N.N. indignus peccator, ad pedes Tuos me provolvo suppliciter petens, ut me totum et totaliter tamquam rem et proprietatem Tuam assumere et de me, de omnibus potentiis animae et corporis, de tota vita, morte et aeternitate mea, quidquid Tibi magis placet facere digneris. Utaris etiam, si hoc Tibi placet, me toto et totaliter ad hoc quod de Te dictum est: “Ipsa conteret caput tuum [Gen 3,15] et “Cunctas haereses sola interemisti in universo mundo” [officium BVM] exequendum, ut in Tua immaculata et misericordiosissima manu aptum sim instrumentum ad gloriam Tuam in tot deviatis ac tepidis animis introducendam et quam maxime augmentandam et ita dulcissimum Regnum S[acratissi]mi Cordis Iesu quam maxime extendendum, ubi enim Tu intras ibi et gratiam conversionis et sanctificationis impetras, per Tuas enim manus omnes ad nos gratiae ex Corde Sacratissimo Iesu perveniunt.

V. Dignare me laudare Te, Virgo Sacrata.

R. Da mihi virtutem contra hostes Tuos.

Knights at the Foot of the Cross Consecration to Mary

O Immaculata, Queen of Heaven and earth, health of the sick, and our most loving Mother, God has willed to entrust the entire order of mercy to you. You stood at the foot of the Cross, uniting yourself with the sufferings of Jesus, and so you became for all the Church a model of compassion.

I, (name), a repentant sinner, cast myself at your feet humbly imploring you to take me with all that I am and have, wholly to yourself as your possession and property.  Please make of me, of all my powers of soul and body, of my daily sufferings and crosses, of my whole life, death and eternity, whatever most pleases you.

If it pleases you, use all that I am and have without reserve, wholly to accomplish what was said of you: “She will crush your head,” and, “You alone have destroyed all heresies in the world.”  Through my prayers and sufferings, let me be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands for introducing and increasing your glory to the maximum in all the many strayed and indifferent souls, and thus help extend as far as possible the blessed kingdom of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.  For wherever you enter, you obtain the grace of conversion and growth in holiness, since it is through your hands that all graces come to us from the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

V. Allow me to praise you, O sacred Virgin.

R. Give me strength against your enemies.
