Prayer of Consecration to
the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

(Dictated by Our Lady to Jelena Vasilj, 11/28/1983)

O Jesus,
we know that you are gentle,
and that you have given your heart
for all of us.
It was crowned with thorns
and with our sins.
Oh, we know that nowadays you beg us
not to be lost.

O Jesus,
remember us when we sin.
Through your most holy heart
give us grace to love each other.
Let hatred disappear from the people.
Show your love.
We all love you,
and wish you to protect us
with your shepherd's heart
from every sin.

Come into every heart, O Jesus,
knock, knock on our hearts.
Be patient and untiring.
We are still closed because
we have not yet understood your will.
Knock perseveringly.

O good Jesus, Make us open
our hearts to you,
at least when we remember
your passion endured for us. Amen

 


Prayer of Consecration to
the Immaculate Heart of Mary

(Dedicated by our Lady to Jelena Vasilj, 11/28/1983)

O most pure heart of Mary,
full of goodness, show your love towards us.
Let the flame of your heart, O Mary,
descend on all people.
We love you immensely.
Impress on our hearts true love
so that we long for you.

O Mary, gentle and humble of heart,
remember us when we sin.
You know that all people sin.
grant, that through your most pure.
and motherly heart,
we may be healed from
every spiritual sickness.

Grant that we may always experience
the goodness of your motherly heart,
and that through the flame of your heart,
we may be converted. Amen
