The Annunciation of the Lord ...

TOTAL CONSECRATION OF ONESELF
TO JESUS THROUGH MARY

O Wisdom, eternal and incarnate! O most beloved and
adorable Jesus, true God and true man, only Son of the eternal
Father and of Mary ever virgin! I adore You profoundly in the
bosom and splendors of Your Father during eternity and in the
virginal womb of Mary, Your most worthy Mother, at the time
of Your incarnation. I give You thanks that You have emptied
Yourself in taking the form of a slave, in order to rescue me
from the cruel slavery of the devil. I praise You and glorify
You that You have been pleased to submit Yourself, in all
things, to Mary, Your most holy Mother, in order to make me,
through Her, Your faithful slave.

But alas! Ungrateful and faithless that I am, I have not kept the
vows and the promises that I made so solemnly to You in my
baptism. I have not fulfilled my obligations; I do not deserve to
be called Your child or even Your slave; and, as there is
nothing in me that does not merit Your rejection and Your
anger, I no longer dare to approach Your holy and august
Majesty by myself. This is why I have recourse to the
intercession and mercy of Your most holy Mother, whom You
have given to me as Mediatrix before You; and it is through
Her that I hope to obtain from You contrition and the pardon
of my sins, and the acquisition and preservation of wisdom.

I call to You, O Mary Immaculate, living tabernacle of the
Divinity, where eternal Wisdom is hidden and wishes to be
adored by angels and by men. I call to You, O Queen of
heaven and earth, to whose rule everything is subject that is
under God. I call to You, O sure Refuge of sinners, whose
mercy fails no one; fulfill the desires that I have for divine
Wisdom, and for that end, receive the vows and the offerings
which my lowliness presents to You.

I ________________________, unfaithful sinner, renew and
ratify today, in Your hands, the vows of my baptism. I
renounce forever Satan, his pomps and his works, and I give
myself entirely to Jesus Christ, incarnate Wisdom, to carry my
cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful
to Him than I have been until now. I choose You today, in the
presence of the entire heavenly court, to be my Mother and my
Mistress. I hand over to You and consecrate, as Your slave,
my body and my soul, my goods, both interior and exterior,
and even the value of my good actions, past, present and
future, leaving to You an entire and full right to dispose of me
and of everything that belongs to me, without exception,
according to Your good pleasure, for the greater glory of God,
in time and in eternity. Receive, O benign Virgin, this little
offering of my slavery, in honor of, and in union with, the
submission that eternal Wisdom deigned to have to Your
maternity; in homage to the power that the two of You have
over this little worm and wretched sinner, and in thanksgiving
for the privileges which the Blessed Trinity has favored upon
You. I declare that I wish henceforth, as Your true slave, to
seek Your Honor and to obey You in all things.

O admirable Mother! Present me to Your dear Son, as His
eternal slave, so that, having redeemed me through You, He
may receive me through You. O Mother of mercy! Grant me
the grace of obtaining the true wisdom of God and so include
me in the number of those whom You love, whom You
instruct, whom You lead, whom You nourish and protect as
Your children and Your slaves. O Virgin most faithful! Make
me in all things so perfect a disciple, imitator and slave of
incarnate Wisdom, Jesus Christ, Your Son, that I may come,
through Your intercession and Your example, to the fullness of
His age on earth and of His glory in heaven.  
AMEN.
