Act of Consecration of the Family to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Immaculate Virgin, Our Lady of Fatima, trusting in your motherly goodness and your great concern for Christian families, we come before you and we consecrate our family and every family to your Immaculate Heart.

To you we gladly consecrate our family, our children, our life together in the home, our marriage, our vocation as Catholic spouses and parents. Look kindly upon our home as we ask you today to defend, now and always, our family from everything that is not of God. Ask your Holy Spouse, St. Joseph, to guard our family home, that he may be the guardian and protector of our family as he was the Guardian and Protector of the Holy Family of Nazareth.

Dearest Mother Mary, as we consecrate ourselves and our family to your Immaculate Heart we pledge to make greater room for you in our hearts and in our home, especially through the practice of family prayer together – in particular the Holy Rosary. Through this act of consecration we entrust all family to your intercession in the certain knowledge that Jesus our Lord will refuse nothing you ask of him.

Mary, our Mother and our Queen, may your Immaculate Heart triumph and reign in our home and in our hearts so that Jesus may be the true heart of our family and that our home may be filled with his heavenly blessing. Oh Lady of Fatima, obtain from the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, for our family and for every family that we may faithfully fulfil our Christian duties and that we all may be enriched with the abundant blessings of Almighty God.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, Refuge of Sinners, Cause of our Joy – Pray for us now and always. Amen.
