Saint Maximilian Maria Kolbe’s Act of Consecration
to the Blessed Virgin Mary
O Immaculate, Queen of heaven and earth,
Refuge of sinners and our most loving Mother,
to whom God willed to entrust the entire order of mercy,
I an unworthy sinner cast myself at your feet,
humbly begging you to be so good as to accept me wholly and completely
as your possession and property,
and to do with me, with my whole life, death and eternity, whatever pleases you.
If it pleases you, use my whole self without reserve
to accomplish what has been said of you:
“She will crush your head,” (Gen. 3:15), and also:
“You alone have destroyed all heresies in the whole world”
so that I may become a useful instrument
in your immaculate and most merciful hands
for promoting and increasing your glory to the maximum
in so many strayed and indifferent souls,
and thus extend as much as possible
the blessed Kingdom of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
For wherever you enter,
you obtain the grace of conversion and sanctification,
since it is through your hands that all graces comes to us
from the Most Sweet Heart of Jesus.
Allow me to praise you, O most holy Virgin.
Give me strength against your enemies.
