Entrustment of the Family to the Immaculata
O Immaculata, Queen of heaven and earth, our life, our sweetness, and our hope, on this day we the (Family Surname) family come before you to consecrate ourselves to you as your possession and property. We praise God because he has brought us together to give ourselves to you our Mother. We do this because Jesus said on the Cross, "Behold your Mother."
We need you, Mother Mary, to help us to be a truly Catholic family. Enter into our family life. Repeat to us the words you spoke at Cana, "Do whatever He tells you." Help us to overlook one another's faults, to forgive as Jesus has forgiven us, and to love one another as Our Lord has asked us to love. Please use our family to crush the head of the serpent. Ask your Spouse, St. Joseph, Protector of the universal Church, to keep us one in mind and heart with your Son's Vicar, the Pope. Today you have become the Queen of our hearts and home. May our home be a "City of the Immaculata," where the Sacred Heart of Jesus reigns forever. Amen.
Entrustment of Children (by Parents) to the Immaculata
Mary, we wish to learn from you to answer to our vocation as parents. That is why we entrust to your Immaculate Heart our children: their lives, their present, their future. You who are a sweet and strong Mother and a model of Christian life, protect and defend our children from all evil. Help them grow in friendship with Jesus and gradually discover their vocation and mission in the world and in the Church. Allow us to be authentic and joyful witnesses of our faith in every circumstance of life. With your intercession, allow us to receive the grace of walking together in love and then being united in the eternal joy of Heaven.
