FORMAT FOR CONSOLERS CONSECRATION

 

Priest:            What is it that you desire this evening,

Consoler:     I desire to be consecrated as a member of this Lay Apostolate

                       to console the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Leader:          Together: let us read the Act of Consecration for New Consolers. Notice

                      On the second line there is an I followed by a series of dots. Please 

                      Pause at this point, and in the silence of your heart say your name.

As I stand in this holy place, in the presence of the Holy Trinity and all the Heavenly Courts. I..desire to consecrate myself to Your United Hearts today; dear Jesus and Mary.

I do so for the purpose of consoling, making reparation and atonement for the sins committed against Your Sacred and Eucharistic Heart, my Dearest Jesus, and Your Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, Dearest Mother Mary, for the salvation of all sinners. I desire a greater love and compassion for Your Suffering Hearts, and for all Your people.

I ask of Your Two Hearts, the grace and strength to keep me true to my commitment as a Consoler. I offer myself totally, from the first moment of my conception to the last moment of my life; for the honour and glory of God, and for my salvation. Mary Dearest Mother, I ask You to purify my love and actions, and unite me with the Triumphant in Heaven, the suffering souls in Purgatory, and all the Consolers on the earth, in honoring Your Sacred Hearts.

Dear Saint Joseph, assist me to be faithful, as You were to Jesus and Mary. In moments of trial, help me to imitate You in saying YES (Marys Fiat) so that, by the power of the Holy Spirit, Christ may live in me to the glory of God the Father.  AMEN.  

Please hold your cross in the palm of your hand while Father gives the following blessing

Priest:  My dear brothers and sisters, we are here for the blessing of a new cross. Let us               

             venerate in faith, the eternal plan by which God has made the cross of Christ  

             the pre- eminent sign of His mercy.

             As we look upon the cross, let us call to mind that on it, Christ brought to

             completion the sacrament of His love for the Church.

             As we bow before the cross, let us remember that in His own blood Christ has 

            removed all division and out of many nations created the one people of God.

            As we venerate the cross, let us reflect that we are Christs disciples and must 

            therefore follow Him, willingly taking up our own personal cross each day.

             Let us, then, take part with all our hearts in this celebration, so that we may 

            grasp the mystery of the cross more clearly and experience its power more

            deeply.

 PRIEST SPRINKLES CROSSES WITH HOLY  WATER, LIFTS HIS HANDS AND PRAYS. 

 

Lord, your son reconciled us to you by suffering on the cross and then returned to You in glory.

May your people who carry this cross as a sign of redemption, find in it protection and strength,

May they shoulder their own crosses in the spirit of the Gospel until their journey ends.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

All:  Amen.  

PRIEST LAYS HANDS ON HEAD OF EACH CONSOLER AND SAYS THE FOLLOWING SPECIAL ANOINTING PRAYER.  

Priest: May the blessing of Almighty God, the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit descend 

           upon you and strengthen you to carry out your commitment as a Consoler of the 

          United Hearts of Jesus and Mary Lay Apostolate.

          All:    Amen.

 

Priest: May God who is blessed above all, bless you in all things through Christ, so that

            whatever happens in your lives will work together for your good.

           All:     Amen.

PRIEST (EXTENDS FORMAL BLESSING)  And may Almighty God bless  you

                                                                              The Father, and the Son,

                                                                              And the Holy Spirit.

                                                                              All:    AMEN.

Priest: Now go forth in the love and grace of God, and in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, as a

member of this beautiful Apostolate: 

(Please kindly return to your seats, as we continue with the Holy Mass)  

GOD BLESS.
