Act of consecration to the Immaculate Virgin Mary (MI)

People entering the ranks of Knights of the Immaculata, give themselves to Her with the following consecration composed by St. Maximilian Kolbe:

"O Immaculata, Queen of heaven and earth, refuge of sinners and our Mother most loveable, to whom God deigned to confide the whole order of mercy, I N.N., an unworthy sinner, prostrate myself at Thy feet, humbly begging Thee if Thou wouldst deign to take me wholly and entirely as Thy property and possession and to use me, together with all the powers of my body and soul, my life, my death, my eternity, as pleases Thee. Use the whole of me, if Thou so willest, without any reservations, to fulfill that which is said of Thee, “She has crushed all the heresies in the world”, so that in Thy immaculate and loving hands I may become a useful instrument in engrafting and increasing Thy Glory in so many straying and indifferent souls, and in this way to bring about the greatest extension, the blissful Kingship of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

For wherever Thou enterest Thou obtainest graces of conversion and sanctification.

Through Thy immaculate hands all graces from the Sweetest Heart of Jesus flow upon us.

Grant me the grace to praise Thee, Lady most holy.

Grant me strength against my ennemies."
