Lord Jesus, I offer myself for the salvation of souls and the consecration of all the world in Your holiness. Accept me as a living victim of Your Love, so that Your Church may be transformed in Your holiness to be a sign of salvation for all the world.
Master, I offer myself for your Vicar on earth, for all bishops, priests, deacons, religious, and for all your faithful people, so that we all may have hearts made only for love. Help us to be victims of love, one for the other, as You have given Yourself in love for us. As a member of Your Mystical Body, grant that I may participate in Your Eucharistic Sacrifice with even greater love and reverence.
Take me, Lord Jesus, and with me Your Church and all of the world in Your Love to Your Father, in the power of the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.

We desire henceforth to live your life; we desire that the virtues to which you have promised peace on earth, may flower in the bosom of our College. We desire to keep far from us the spirit of the world, which you have condemned. You are King of our minds by the simplicity of our faith. You are the King of our hearts by our love for you alone, with which our hearts are on fire, and whose flame we shall keep alive by receiving the Holy Eucharist. Be pleased, O Sacred Heart to preside over our gathering together, to bless our spiritual and temporal affairs, to ward off all annoyance from us, to hallow our joys, and comfort our sorrows. If anyone of us has ever been so unhappy as to fall into the misery of displeasing you, gram that he may remember, O Heart of Jesus, that you are full of goodness and mercy toward the repentant sinner. May the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the glorious Patriarch St. Joseph vouchsafe to offer you this our act of consecration and to keep the memory thereof alive in all of us. Glory to the Heart of Jesus. our King and our Father!
Jesus, meek and humble of Heart.
Make our hearts like unto Thine.
Let us pray. O most Holy Heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, I adore you, and with a lively sorrow for my sins, I offer you this poor heart of mine. Make me humble, patient, pure, and wholly obedient to your will. Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in you and for you. Protect me in the midst of danger; comfort me in my afflictions; give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs, your blessing on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death. Amen.

Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
by Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque
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 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 own 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.
Act of Dedication to the Blessed Virgin
My Queen and my Mother, I give myself entirely to you and in proof of my affection, I give you my eyes, my ears, my tongue, my heart, my whole being without reserve. Since I am your own, keep me and guard me as your property and possession. Amen.
Act of Faith
O my God, I firmly believe that you are one God in three divine Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I believe that your divine Son became man, and died for our sins and that He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches because you have revealed them, who can neither deceive nor be deceived. Amen.
Act of Hope
O my God, relying on your infinite goodness and promises, I hope to obtain pardon for my sins, the help of your grace and life everlasting, through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer. Amen.
Act of Love
O my God, I love you above all things with my whole heart and soul, because you are all good and worthy of all my love. I love my neighbor as myself for the love of you. I forgive all who have injured me, and ask pardon for all whom I have injured. Amen.
