Consecration of a Parish or Religious Organisation to Divine Compassion

To be used on the first (or any) Sunday in June

 After Communion the following Prayer is offered:

Let us pray:

Jesus, Redeemer of the world,
look upon us with your love as we turn to you.
We are yours and we wish to remain so
and we freely consecrate ourselves to your Divine Compassion.
Have mercy on all people,
especially those in need of knowing your compassionate and merciful love.
Be the inspiration and strength of the faithful
and of those who have given up hope.
May they know they are welcome in their Father’s house.
Reconcile those who live in discord; give hope to those who are lost,
and bring joy to any who live in torment of mind.
Help us, together with all people, to cry with one voice:
praise to the Divine Compassion which brought about our salvation!
And may Mary, your Mother and ours,
embrace our parish (……) in her loving Heart,
and soften the hearts of those who have hardened themselves to others
with her compassionate gaze.

To your Sacred Heart, Jesus, be honour and glory forever.
