O Holy Spirit, receive the absolute and complete consecration of my whole being.
In every instant of my life and in all my actions,
be my Director, my Light, my Guide, my Strength,
and the Love of my heart.
I surrender myself without reservations
to the loving action of your grace.
I desire to always be docile to your inspirations.
Transform me through Mary
in Christ Priest and Victim
that I may console His Sacred Heart
and extend your kingdom of holiness
for the glory of the Father
and the salvation of mankind.
Jesus, Savior of mankind,
ACT OF CONSECRATION
TO THE HOLY SPIRIT
On my knees before the great multitude of Heavenly witnesses,
I offer myself, soul and body to You, Eternal Spirit of God.
I adore the brightness of Your purity, the unerring keenness of Your justice and the might of Your love.
Thou art the strength and light of my soul.
In You I live and move and am. I desire never to grieve You by unfaithfulness to grace, and I pray with all my heart to be kept from the smallest sin against You.
Mercifully guard my every thought and grant that I may always watch for Your light and listen to Your voice and follow Your gracious inspirations.
I cling to You and give myself to You and ask You, by Your compassion, to watch over me in my weakness.
Holding the pierced Feet of Jesus, and looking at His Five Wounds and trusting in His Precious Blood, and adoring His opened Side and stricken Heart, I implore You, adorable Spirit, Helper of my infirmity, so to keep me in Your grace that I may never sin against You.
Give me grace, 0 Holy Spirit, Spirit of The Father and The Son, to say to You always and everywhere, "Speak Lord, for Your Servant hear." Amen.
