Consecration of Our Marriage to the
Sacred Heart of Jesus Through the
Immaculate Heart of Mary
Mother Adela Galindo, Foundress SCTJM

“It is appropriate in our times, to profoundly understand and have a greater conscience of the intimate relationship that exists between the Two Hearts, and of the immense value that an authentic devotion and consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary have in our lives.”
(Pope John Paul II, November 23, 1987)

"Oh, Immaculate Heart of Mary, sure refuge of sinners and firm anchor of salvation, to you do we wish to consecrate today our marriage. In these times of great spiritual battle, of struggle between authentic family values and a worldly mentality of permissiveness, we ask you, our Mother and Teacher, to show us the way of true love, of commitment, of fidelity, of sacrifice and of service. By consecrating ourselves to you today, we beseech you to receive us into your Heart, to cover us with your Pure Mantel, to keep us in your maternal arms and to lead us on the sure path to the Sacred Heart of your Son, Jesus Christ.

You who are the Mother of Christ, we ask you to form and mold us so that we can both be living images of Jesus in our marriage, in our family, in the Church and in the world.

You who are Virgin and Mother, pour upon us and upon our marriage, the spirit of purity of heart, of mind and of body.

You who are our Spiritual Mother, help us to grow in the life of grace and of holiness. Do not permit us to fall into mortal sin nor to waste or misuse the graces won for us by your Son on the Cross.

You who are the Teacher of Souls, teach us to be docile like you. May we receive with obedience and gratefulness the Truth revealed by Christ in His Word and in the Church.

You who are the Mediatrix of all graces, be the Pure channel through which we receive in our lives and in our marriage, the graces of conversion, of love, of peace, of communication, of unity and of comprehension.

You who are the Intercessor before you Son, keep your merciful gaze upon us and upon our marriage. Draw close to your son imploring from Him, as You did in Cana, for the miracle of wine which we may lack.

You who are the Coredemtrix, teach us to be faithful to each other in moments of suffering and of cross. In times of trail, may we not seek our own well-being but rather the good of the other, remaining ever faithful to the commitment which we have received from God. May we always live these moments of sacrifice and struggle united to your Crucified Son.

In virtue of the union of the Immaculate Heart of Mary with the Sacred Heart of Christ, we pray that our marriage may be strengthen in unity, in love, in responsibility to our duties and in the generous self-offering of one to the other and to the children we will receive from Our Lord. May our home be a domestic sanctuary where we pray together and where we communicate with each other with joy and enthusiasm. May our marriage be for others, a visible sign of love and fidelity. We beseech you O Mother, in virtue of this consecration, that our marriage may be protected from all spiritual, physical or material evil. May your Immaculate Heart reign in our home so that Jesus Christ may be loved, heard and obeyed in our family. Sustained by His love and His grace, may we dispose ourselves to construct daily, the civilization of love: the Reign of the Two Hearts. Amen.
