Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

(with ecclesiastical permission)

O Mary, 
I consecrate myself to you,
Daughter of the Father,
Spouse of the Holy Spirit,
Mother of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.
I will wear your Scapular always as a sign of this consecration,
and I offer my daily Rosary and the 
fulfillment of the obligations of each day
in reparation for sins,
particularly those against your Immaculate Heart,
and against the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.
I desire to be ever more deeply united to His Heart, 
in the intimacy of your own
Immaculate Heart, with each passing 
moment of my life unto the last.  Amen

Sister Lucia's Monthly Novena to Our Lady of Fatima

Sister Lucia's Monthly Novena to
Our Lady of Fatima

     On the 4th day of every month, Sister Lucia would pray a special Novena to Our Lady of Fatima in anticipation of the 13th day. The novena included the Memorare and three Hail Marys.
   This month the Novena begins on the FirstSaturday, June 4,  which is also the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We hope you will begin praying the Novena every month!  Your First Saturday devotion also consoles Our Lady's heart and helps bring graces for salvation to those most in need of God's mercy.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
3 Hail Marys...Amen
