CONSECRATION OF THE YOUNG TO MARY
O Mary, Mother of God, Mother of the
Church, Mother of all of the families, and in a special way Mother of the young,
we implore your most powerful intercession to rescue us from the power of the
Dear Mary, Mother, guide and
protector of the young we implore your intercession around and over our young
people; they are surrounded by so many evils, temptations, and seductions that
easily blind them from the true meaning of life and the true source of
happiness which is God.
The devil tempts them to forget and
even deny God’s existence; the flesh rebels against the spirit and insists on
immediate gratification; the world lies to them, convincing them that true
happiness can be found in this world and this world alone.
Dear Mary, our Mother and Queen help
our youth to discover in the depths of their hearts, mind and souls that the
reason for our existence is very simple but profound—to know, love, and serve
God in this life so as to be happy with Him forever in heaven.
Dear Mary, we invoke you as our life,
our sweetness and our hope. (The Hail Holy Queen) may our young people live
their lives to the fullest by following Jesus who is truly the LIFE of our
life. May our youth find their joy happiness and sweetness in the loving
embraces of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Finally, in the midst of the storms, tempests
and bitter trials of life, may our youth discover hope in Mary’s Immaculate
Heart and maternal embrace.
Dear Mary, may our young people
become precious and shiny jewels one day in your crown in heaven, so that they
may for all eternity contemplate the beauty of the face of God, Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit for all eternity. Amen.
