Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Basilica of Saint Peter
25 March 2022

O Mary, Mother of God and our
Mother, in this time of trial we turn to you.
As our Mother, you love us and know us:
no concern of our hearts is hidden from
you. Mother of mercy, how often we have
experienced your watchful care and your
peaceful presence! You never cease to
guide us to Jesus, the Prince of Peace.

Yet we have strayed from that path of
peace. We have forgotten the lesson
learned from the tragedies of the last
century, the sacrifice of the millions who
fell in two world wars. We have
disregarded the commitments we made as
a community of nations. We have betrayed
peoples’ dreams of peace and the hopes
of the young. We grew sick with greed, we
thought only of our own nations and their
interests, we grew indifferent and caught
up in our selfish needs and concerns.

We chose to ignore God, to be satisfied
with our illusions, to grow arrogant and
aggressive, to suppress innocent lives and
to stockpile weapons. We stopped being
our neighbor’s keepers and stewards of
our common home. We have ravaged the
garden of the Earth with war, and by our
sins we have broken the heart of our
heavenly Father, who desires us to be
brothers and sisters. We grew indifferent
to everyone and everything except
ourselves. Now with shame we cry out:
Forgive us, Lord!

Holy Mother, amid the misery of our
sinfulness, amid our struggles and
weaknesses, amid the mystery of iniquity
that is evil and war, you remind us that
God never abandons us, but continues to
look upon us with love, ever ready to
forgive us and raise us up to new life. He
has given you to us and made your
Immaculate Heart a refuge for the Church
and for all humanity. By God’s gracious
will, you are ever with us; even in the
most troubled moments of our history, you
are there to guide us with tender love.

We now turn to you and knock at the
door of your heart. We are your beloved
children. In every age you make yourself
known to us, calling us to conversion. At
this dark hour, help us and grant us your
comfort. Say to us once more: “Am I not
here, I who am your Mother?” You are
able to untie the knots of our hearts and of
our times. In you we place our trust. We
are confident that, especially in moments
of trial, you will not be deaf to our
supplication and will come to our aid.

That is what you did at Cana in
Galilee, when you interceded with Jesus
and he worked the first of his signs. To
preserve the joy of the wedding feast, you
said to him: “They have no wine” (Jn 2:3).
Now, O Mother, repeat those words and
that prayer, for in our own day we have
run out of the wine of hope, joy has fled,
fraternity has faded. We have forgotten
our humanity and squandered the gift of
peace. We opened our hearts to violence
and destructiveness. How greatly we need
your maternal help!

Therefore, O Mother, hear our prayer.
Star of the Sea, do not let us be
shipwrecked in the tempest of war.

Ark of the New Covenant, inspire
projects and paths of reconciliation.

Queen of Heaven, restore God’s peace
to the world.

Eliminate hatred and the thirst for
revenge, and teach us forgiveness.

Free us from war, protect our world
from the menace of nuclear weapons.

Queen of the Rosary, make us realize
our need to pray and to love.

Queen of the Human Family, show
people the path of fraternity.

Queen of Peace, obtain peace for our
world.

O Mother, may your sorrowful
plea stir our hardened hearts. May the
tears you shed for us make this valley
parched by our hatred blossom anew.
Amid the thunder of weapons, may your
prayer turn our thoughts to peace. May
your maternal touch soothe those who
suffer and flee from the rain of bombs.
May your motherly embrace comfort those
forced to leave their homes and their
native land. May your Sorrowful Heart
move us to compassion and inspire us to
open our doors and to care for our brothers
and sisters who are injured and cast aside.

Holy Mother of God, as you
stood beneath the cross, Jesus, seeing the
disciple at your side, said: “Behold your
son” (Jn 19:26). In this way, he entrusted
each of us to you. To the disciple, and to
each of us, he said: “Behold, your Mother”
(Jn 19:27). Mother Mary, we now desire
to welcome you into our lives and our
history.

At this hour, a weary and distraught
humanity stands with you beneath the
cross, needing to entrust itself to you and,
through you, to consecrate itself to Christ.
The people of Ukraine and Russia, who
venerate you with great love, now turn to
you, even as your heart beats with
compassion for them and for all those
peoples decimated by war, hunger,
injustice and poverty.

Therefore, Mother of God and
our Mother, to your Immaculate Heart we
solemnly entrust and consecrate ourselves,
the Church and all humanity, especially
Russia and Ukraine. Accept this act
that we carry out with confidence and love.
Grant that war may end and peace spread
throughout the world. The “Fiat” that
arose from your heart opened the doors of
history to the Prince of Peace. We trust
that, through your heart, peace will dawn
once more. To you we consecrate the
future of the whole human family, the
needs and expectations of every people,
the anxieties and hopes of the world.

Through your intercession, may
God’s mercy be poured out on the Earth
and the gentle rhythm of peace return to
mark our days. Our Lady of the “Fiat,” on
whom the Holy Spirit descended, restore
among us the harmony that comes from
God. May you, our “living fountain of
hope,” water the dryness of our hearts. In
your womb Jesus took flesh; help us to
foster the growth of communion. You
once trod the streets of our world; lead us
now on the paths of peace.

Amen. †
