Act of Consecration to Mary Immaculate


Our Lady is the Patroness of the United States, under her title “the Immaculate Conception”. Here is a prayer entrusting the U.S. into the care of Mary Immaculate; I’ve heard it was actually composed by Archbishop John Carroll, the first bishop of the United States.

Most Holy Trinity: Our Father in Heaven, Thou didst Mary as the fairest of Thy daughters; Holy Ghost, who didst choose Mary as Thy Spouse; God the Son who didst choose Mary as Thy Mother, in union with Mary we adore Thy Majesty and acknowledge Thy supreme, eternal dominion and authority.
Most Holy Trinity, we put the United States of America into the hands of Mary Immaculate in order that she may present the country to Thee. Through her we wish to thank Thee for the great resources of this land and for the freedom which has been its heritage. Through the intercession of Mary, have mercy on the Catholic Church in America. Grant us peace. Have mercy on our President and on all the officers of our government. Grant us a fruitful economy, born of justice and charity. Have mercy on capital and industry and labor. Protect the family life of the nation. Guard the precious gift of many religious vocations. Through the intercession of Our Mother, have mercy on the sick, the tempted, sinners - on all who are in need.
Mary, Immaculate Virgin, Our Mother, Patroness of our land, we praise thee and honor thee and give ourselves to thee. Protect us from every harm. Pray for us, that acting always according to thy will and the Will of thy Divine Son, we may live and die pleasing to God. Amen.
