†† VOCATIONS

St. Margaret Mary wrote an “Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.” We, in our quest to find our true vocation in life (the priesthood, the consecrated life, married life, or single life), we will do well to pray this Act of Consecration and ask the Sacred Heart of Jesus to guide us as we strive to do His holy will and to make the most important choice of our vocation in life.

ACT OF CONSECRATION TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS St. Margaret Mary I give myself and consecrate to the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ, my person, and my life, my actions, pains and sufferings, so that I may be unwilling to make use of any part of my being other than to honor, love and glorify the Sacred Heart. This commitment to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is my unchanging purpose, namely, to be all his, and to do all things for the love of him, at the same time renouncing with all my heart whatever is displeasing to him. I, therefore, take you, O Sacred Heart, to be the only object of my love, the guardian of my life, my assurance of salvation, the remedy of my weakness and inconstancy, the atonement for all the faults of my life and my sure refuge at the hour of death.

Be then, O Heart of Goodness, my justification before God the Father, and turn away from me the strokes of his righteous anger. O Heart of Love, I put all my confidence in you, for I fear everything from my wickedness and frailty, but I hope for all things from your goodness and bounty. Remove from me all that can displease You or resist your holy will; let your pure love imprint your image so deeply upon my heart, that I shall never be able to forget you or to be separated from you. May I obtain from all your loving kindness the grace of having my name written in your heart, for in you I desire to place all my happiness and glory, living and dying in bondage to you. Amen.
