Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God and my mother,
I, Father ___ consecrate my priesthood to you this day.
I entrust myself to you so that you may form my heart
according to your Immaculate Heart
to love God and neighbour with the same humility and generosity.
In a spirit of loving trust,
I totally and whole-hardly surrender my life,
and availability to the needs of those I am called to serve.
Lead me to satiate Christ’s Thirst for love and souls
by my life of prayer and apostolic labour.
May I always follow Jesus the Good Shepherd with cheerfulness –
never counting the cost of my sacrifices
and doing even little things with great love.
Fill my heart with gratitude at the gift of my precious vocation
and with wonder at the marvels God works through me,
especially as He descends in love to the altar through my hands.
Give me above all else the desire to be holy
and the zeal to lead those entrusted to my care to Heaven.
Help me to live as 'another Christ' in our world today,
radiating the light of His Love everywhere I go.
May I be only all for Jesus through Mary.
