A Consecration to Mary by Fr. Slavko
July 7, 2022
Dear Family of Mary!
Fr. Slavko wrote a short but beautiful prayer of consecration to Our Lady in his book, “Pray with the Heart”. It is the kind of prayer you could say every day. It is short and practical, and not full of fancy words!! Here it is:
Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady
“Dear children! Again today I call you to consecrate your life to me with love, so I am able to guide you with love. I love you, dear children, with a special love and I desire to bring you all to Heaven unto God. I want you to realize that this life lasts briefly compared to the one in Heaven. Therefore, dear children, decide again today for God. Only that way will I be able to show how much you are dear to me and how much I desire all to be saved and to be with me in Heaven. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (November 27, 1986)
Mary, thank you for this motherly call! Mother of my Savior and Mother of Peace, today I surrender my life to you with love.
As Jesus, dying on the cross, gave you also over to me, so do I give myself over to you now. Take me on your motherly lap!
I want to love Jesus as you did, Mother. I want to learn with you how to listen to the Father’s word and do His will.
Mary, with you I wish to learn how to love all people as my brothers and sisters because they are all yours.
I devote myself to you that my prayer may be prayer of the heart in which I shall find peace, and love, and the strength of reconciliation.
To you, Our Lady, do I give up my past, my present and my future, all my abilities and gifts. I want to grow up with you like Jesus did. Let everything in me praise the Lord with you from now on!
Let my soul from now on sing for joy to His love and mercy! I dedicate to you, Mother, my family, too, all my friends, all those I live and work with…
Mary, I would like to be the bearer of the Holy Spirit with you. Let my heart be obedient to His inspirations, as was yours!
Mother of Peace, let my words be irrevocable through your intercession that sin may never seduce me again! Amen
(Fr. Slavko Barbaric. “Pray with the Heart! Medjugorje Manual of Prayer” Copywright 1988, Parish of Medjugorje. p.33)
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
