Consecration of Children to the Holy Family
(Adapted from a prayer by St John Eudes and other sources.)
O Jesus, only Son of God, only Son of Mary, I come to Thee as an unworthy parent, and I humbly consecrate to thy Most Sacred Heart, now and for eternity, the souls of my children (names). I surrender them to Thy sweet yoke and place them at the foot of Thy Cross. I offer Thee for them the most loving Heart of Thy Most Holy Mother Mary, which is more precious and pleasing to Thee than all hearts, and I beg Thee by her merits to show Thyself to them a Savior.
O Mary, Mother of Jesus, I come to Thee as an unworthy parent, and I humbly consecrate to thy Most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, now and for eternity, the souls of my children, (names). I offer Thee for them the most adorable Heart of Thy Son Jesus, who is the life, love and joy of Thy own Heart, and I beg Thee by the infinite merits of the Divine Son, Thou who art our Mother in the order of grace, to obtain the grace of salvation for my children.
O glorious St. Joseph, I come to thee and ask thee to take under thy special protection my children (names). I consecrate them to thee today, that they may become your foster children. Guard them, guide their steps in life, and form their hearts after the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. O glorious St. Joseph, who felt the tribulation and worry of a parent when the child Jesus was lost, protect them for time and eternity. May you be their father and counselor. Preserve them from the corruption of this world, and obtain for us the grace to be united in heaven forever. Amen.
