Holy Mary Mother of God, Virgin Immaculate, you appeared eighteen times to Bernadette at the grotto in Lourdes, to remind Christians of what the truths in the Gospel require of them. You called them to prayer, penance, the Eucharist and life in the Church.
To answer your call more fully, I consecrate myself through you to your Son Jesus.
Make me willing to accept what he said. By the fervour of my faith, by the conduct of my life in all its aspects, by my devotion to the sick, let me work with you in the comforting of those who suffer and in the reconciliation of people, that the Church may be One, and there be peace in the world.
All this I ask, confident that you, Our Lady, will fully answer my prayer.
Blessed be the holy and Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God
Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.
Saint Bernadette, pray for us.
