 O Eternal and Incarnate Wisdom! O sweetest and most adorable Jesus! True God and true man, only Son of the  Eternal Father, and of Mary, always virgin! I adore You profoundly, dwelling in the splendor of your Father from  all eternity. I adore You in the virginal womb of Mary, your most worthy Mother, at the time of your Incarnation. 

I thank you for having emptied yourself in assuming the condition of a slave to set me free from the cruel  slavery of the devil. I praise and glorify You for having willingly chosen to obey Mary, your holy Mother,  in all things, so that through her I may be your faithful slave of love.  

But I must confess that I have not kept the vows and promises which I made to you so solemnly at my baptism. I have not fulfilled my obligations, and I do not deserve to be called your child or even your slave. Since I cannot lay claim to anything except what merits your rejection and displeasure, I dare no longer approach the holiness of your majesty on my own. That is why I turn to the intercession and the mercy of your holy Mother, whom you yourself have given me to mediate with you. Through her I hope to obtain from you contrition and pardon for my sins, and that Wisdom whom I desire to dwell in me always.  

I turn to you, then, Mary Immaculate, Living Tabernacle of God, in whom Eternal Wisdom willed to receive the  adoration of both men and angels. I greet you as Queen of Heaven and Earth, for all that is under God has been made subject to your sovereignty. I call upon you, the unfailing Refuge of Sinners, confident in your mercy that  has never forsaken anyone. Grant my desire for Divine Wisdom and, in support of my petition,  accept the promises and the offering of myself which I now make, conscious of my unworthiness.  

I, _________________________________________________, a faithless sinner,  renew and ratify today through you my baptismal promises. I renounce forever Satan, his empty promises, and his evil designs, and I give myself completely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life,  and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before. 

This day, in the presence of all the heavenly court I choose you, Mary, as my Mother and Queen. I surrender and consecrate myself to you, body and soul, as your slave, with all that I possess, both spiritual and material, even including the value of all my good actions, past, present, and future. I give you the full right to dispose of me and all that belongs to me, without any reservations, in whatever way you please,  for the greater glory of God in time and in eternity. 

Accept, gracious Virgin, this little offering of my slavery to honor and imitate the obedience of which Eternal Wisdom willingly chose to have towards you, his Mother. I wish to acknowledge the authority which both of you have over this poor sinner. By it, I wish also to thank God for the privileges bestowed on you by the Holy Trinity. I declare that for the future, I will try to honor and obey you in all things, as your true slave of love. 

O admirable Mother, present me to thy dear Son as His eternal slave, now and for always, so that he who redeemed me through you, will now receive me through you. Mother of mercy, grant me the favor of obtaining the true Wisdom of God, and so make me one of those whom you love, teach and guide,  whom you nourish and protect as your children and slaves. 

 O faithful Virgin, make me in all things so perfect a disciple, imitator and slave of the Incarnate Wisdom, Jesus Christ thy Son, that I may become, through your intercession and example, fully mature with the fullness which  Jesus possessed on earth, and with the fullness of his glory in heaven. Amen. 

 St. Louis Marie de Montfort and St. John Paul II, pray for us.                   May 31, 2020
