1. CONFESSION OF COMPLETE SURRENDER TO MARY

(for consecration in the sense of St. Grignion de Montfort)

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Oh Mary, my dear Mother and sublime Mistress,
I thank You for the privilege of being a slave of Your Love.
I lay myself down at Your feet in complete surrender.
Do accept me as a living offering in Your honour, with my virtues but in spite of all my faults.
Make me humble and purify me, oh dear Mother, so that I may be worthy of feeling Your Presence.
Do honour me with Your permanent Presence in my heart and soul, and do allow my entire being to merge with You completely, so that I may become ever less ... (one’s own name) and ever more Mary.
Dear Mother, I want to love You for all eternity. Do take me up into Your sanctity.


www.maria-domina-animarum.net

2. PRAYER TO MARY TO OBTAIN PROTECTION

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Do protect me, so that today my inner growth towards God may in no way whatsoever be hampered by any obstacle crossing my path, whether any negative influence active within me, or any negative influence from outside.
Do purify my heart and my soul, so that I may become perfectly receptive to You.
Give me Your strength of equanimity and brightfulness, and grant me Your powerful protection, so that nothing which is not compatible with You, may be able to touch me.


www.maria-domina-animarum.net

3. OFFERING OF MYSELF TO MARY

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
I offer You this day and myself like a bunch of roses, as an offering of reparation to Your Immaculate Heart, and as an offering of grateful Love.
Dear Mother Mary, behold Your servant ... (one’s own name). May be done unto me according to Your word.


www.maria-domina-animarum.net

4. CONFESSION OF SURRENDER TO MARY

(Myriam van Nazareth)

O Mary, my dearest Heavenly Mother, I love You.
I appear before You in total surrender.
Allow my consciousness to be wrapped up in You completely.
Take away my ego and my will, and replace them by Your will.
Turn me into Your apostle.
Call me, and I will be there for You, wherever and whenever it may please You.
Oh dear Mother, in Your honour I want to forsake all evil ways forever.


www.maria-domina-animarum.net

5. OFFERING OF PRAYERS TO MARY

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
I offer You these prayers like a bunch of roses, lilies and jasmine flowers, by way of reparation to Your Immaculate Heart, as an atoning sacrifice to alleviate the pains You suffer on account of all people, as instruments in Your battle against evil, and for the salvation of this world.
Treasurer and Custodian of all graces, do offer these prayer flowers to whomever You please, whenever You please, and to whatever extent You please.
Thank You, dear Mother Mary and dear Jesus, for everything You have done for us people as of the days of Your lives on earth.
Do make us worthy of these sacrifices.

6. CONSECRATION TO MARY BEFORE MEALS ON A DAY OF FASTING

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
I implore you, do bless this meal, so that it may obtain the strength to procure me the food to enable me to serve God and You with dignity, and so that this little act of abnegation may benefit other souls.


www.maria-domina-animarum.net

7. CONFESSION OF WILLINGNESS TO MAKE SACRIFICES
FOR MY FELLOW PERSON

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Upon Your intercession all my sufferings, trials and setbacks are converted into graces for the benefit of my fellow man through Divine Mercy.
Therefore I thank You for all and any difficulties crossing my path through life, and I implore You to bestow upon me the strength to bear them with dignity.


www.maria-domina-animarum.net

8. PRAYER OF PENANCE TO MARY

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
From my aching heart I consecrate to You all ignorance and indifference regarding Your self-sacrifice and all Your gifts of grace for the benefit of all mankind.
In spite of Your unlimited tender maternal Love, of all Mercy and Heavenly grace, mankind has fallen prey to the delusion of failing to recognize its Heavenly Mother as well as Jesus’ Sufferings.
Oh Mother, the more I feel Your gracious, blessing and sanctifying actions and Your loving Presence in my heart and soul, the more ardent my Love for You tends to grow.
That is why my childlike heart is torn apart by the awareness of all contempt Your Sorrowful Heart has been enduring.
Remorsefully I am begging You to inspire me ways of alleviating Your pain and to obtain me the grace of being able to set the hearts of indifferent souls on fire in the glow of Your Love and Jesus’ grace, so that they may repent in due time.
May they, too, learn to appreciate the privilege of becoming Your dedicated servants.

♥ ♥ ♥

"Dear Mother Mary, all life has left me. Henceforth I will live only through Your Heart, which is gently pushing me towards God". (Myriam, April 28, 1998)


www.maria-domina-animarum.net

9. SUPPLICATION TO MARY TO OBTAIN FORGIVENESS

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary, Dear Jesus,
Forgive me my aberrations.
I beg Your forgiveness for all the pains and sorrows man has caused You throughout the ages, and for all the pains and sorrows I myself am still causing You every day.
Do teach me how I can henceforth be a source of pure joy for you.


www.maria-domina-animarum.net

10. OFFERING OF A DAY OF FASTING TO MARY

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary, I offer You this day of fasting.
Do use this little act of mortification which I am offering You from a heart that loves You infinitely, for the accomplishment of Your Plan, and do obtain for me the strength to bear this sacrifice to You in dignity.


www.maria-domina-animarum.net

19. PRAYER ON THE OCCASION OF MARY’S ASSUMPTION INTO HEAVEN

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Through Your life of utmost purity and Love, full of merits and without any sin, You set an example to all humans.
Therefore, through Your Assumption into Heaven, body and soul, God testified of His unparalleled mystical Love for You.
You know Divine Love better than any soul.
On this festive day I wish You may be able to rule the hearts of all Your children as the Queen of Heavenly Love.
Dear Mother, today I assume You totally and unreservedly into the heaven of my soul, the deepest chamber that God reserved for my unity with Him.
Deign to furnish this little chamber so that it may please You, and to transform it in the flames of Your Love into a small palace in which I will henceforth be able to meet You and God.


www.maria-domina-animarum.net

21. PRAYER FOR THE OCCASION OF MARY’S CORONATION
AS THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Upon Your Assumption into Heaven God made You our Queen, who as the Treasurer and Distributor of Graces rules every one of us.
My Heavenly Queen, I beg you, do establish within me from this day onward Your eternal realm of Love.
May my heart become the throne room of Your palace, the place from which You rule my entire being.
May my faith and my trust in You serve towards my fellow person as the main expression of your royal power.
May my striving for sanctity be like the border guard protecting your kingdom against the attacks of Your and our enemy.
Do accept my soul as the humble present of the poor slave of Your Love, who lives for no purpose other than to glorify You and God, to work for You, to defend Your honour, and to establish and enhance Your realm on earth.
Mary, my Heavenly Queen, if You accept me, I will be Your tool for all eternity, in total and unconditional submission.


www.maria-domina-animarum.net

30. PRAYER TO MARY FOR A DAY OF FASTING

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
On this day of fasting I want to prepare a festive meal for You and Jesus in my heart.
Do drink Your fill of the wine of my Love, and do eat Your fill of the meat of my gratitude.
The more You will eat and drink, the richer my table is going to be, for Your Presence releases within me unsuspected provisions, which God has laid down in my treasury and which the Holy Spirit has displayed before my eyes because of Your Presence.
The flowers on my banquet table and those surrounding it, are the flowers of reconciliation. They have sprung from the seeds sowed within my heart by the Holy Spirit, shone upon by Your glorious Light, and blossomed out in the warmth of my Love for You. Today I give them to You as the offering of reconciliation from a sinner who wants so much never to lose You again.

♥ ♥ ♥

In the above prayer there is a remarkable contrast between, on the one hand, the day of fasting which may make the body experience a sensation of relative deprivation, and on the other hand the festive mood prevailing within the heart. It is not the satisfaction of material needs which makes a soul happy, but the awareness of God’s Presence in the very core of her being. Likewise the deep meaning of the expression that money does not make one happy, lies in the fact the satisfaction of material needs does not alleviate the hunger of the soul: The soul keeps feeling unsatisfied as long as she fails to fulfill the vocation God has given her (viz. living a life for the benefit of God’s Plan of Salvation).

♥ ♥ ♥

"Dear Mother Mary, do receive Jesus for me in this little house God once gave me, but which I have given to You, in which You rule, and which, owing to Your Presence, has been increasingly turning into a palace ever since: the temple of my heart". (Myriam, October 17, 1997)

♥ ♥ ♥

"Dear Mother Mary, You keep knocking on all doors, but many people do not allow You to come in. My door will always be open to You, and the garden in front of my house will always be full of roses of Love, for You to recognize it from far away. Do never pass by my little house"...(Myriam, November 17, 1997)

35. PRAYER TO MARY TO OBTAIN THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Into Your loving maternal Heart I lay my longing that the Holy Spirit may possess me forever.
May He enlighten my mind, so that I may be able to see Eternal Truth through the mist Satan is befogging my eyes with. May I thus learn to see what really matters, and learn how to regard my worldly worries and setbacks as so unimportant as to not allow them to keep my mind locked up in chains.
May He ever more set my heart on fire with Love for You, so that every moment of the day I may long for You and for Jesus to such an extent as not to allow anything else to take up any room in my heart and mind when they are merging with You.
May this very same sublime Love for You immerse me in a perfect sense of detachment, so as to enable me to offer You all austerities and shortcomings of my daily life with a joyful heart, instead of letting them rule my mind as constant sources of distraction.
May my faith in the everlasting things as the only goals of my life truly make me happy, no matter what happens.
May my Love for You be and remain the only purpose of my life, for I have given myself up to You, and into Your hands I have laid my entire being, all that I am, all that I have and all that I do, thus making You my only goal in life, as You are the gateway to my God.

♥ ♥ ♥

To the soul the Gifts of the Holy Spirit are what nourishment is for the body: absolutely vital. We can say that a man’s disposition, his vision of life, his attitude and his virtuousness are largely determined by the extent to which he is inspired by the Holy Spirit. It is the same inspiration which to a great extent determines the degree of a man’s Love and purity. Love of God, of Mary and of one’s fellow creatures, and purity of actions, words, thoughts and desires are the principal benchmarks measuring sanctity. All this makes it easier to understand why the Holy Spirit is called the Sanctifier.

36. CONSECRATION ON THE OCCASION OF
MARY'S PRESENTATION IN THE TEMPLE

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
As a child You consecrated Yourself totally, unconditionally and for all eternity to God, and every moment of Your life You lived completely for and with Him.
In Your following I now implore You to accept my total, unconditional and everlasting consecration to You, through which I lay myself into Your hands in order to be purified and sanctified by You and, in complete obedience, to be presented to God through Your hands.
To You I consecrate my soul, my most precious possession. I want You to own it, so that it may be protected against any evil influence and may be sanctified at Your discretion.
To You I consecrate my mind, so that You may have the liberty to rule over my every thought and desire.
To You I consecrate my heart. Do let the shell the appearances of daily life have built around it, melt under the irresistible power of Your Love. May the fire of Love from Your Immaculate maternal Heart tie my heart up with You forever.
To You I consecrate my body. Do turn it into a temple of purity which, similar to the Temple of Your most pure Body, is worthy to host You and to receive Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. Do obtain my body the strength that will enable me to tirelessly accomplish my apostolic works at Your service.
To You I consecrate my senses. Do purify them so that, as gates to my soul, they may be open to everything that is good and is likely to serve You, and so that they may be able to perceive beyond the boundaries of material appearances, for me to become wise and lenient in my judgments.
To You I consecrate my character. Do cleanse it of all and any weaknesses and negative traits hampering the sanctification of my soul, so that, in Your image, I may be ruled by kindness, softness and Love.
To You I consecrate all my relations with people. In Your capacity as the Queen of Peace, do pervade them with the spirit of peace, Love and understanding, so that I myself and all people I meet may be knowingly or unknowingly touched by Your spirit of unconditional charity.
To You I consecrate my life of faith. May I, through Your grace, lay everything into Your hands, at every moment of my life, in complete surrender and confidence, knowing that God leads everything, provided I explicitly let Him do so.
That is why I also consecrate to You my will. Do merge it completely with Your will, so that I may submissively and obediently accept anything You ask of me, for Your will is identical to God’s Will.
To You I consecrate all prayers of my entire life, past, present and future. I offer them to You as flowers for the accomplishment of all of Your intentions. Do endow all my moments of prayer with the grace of an intimate contact with You, so that they may also be flowers of Love, comfort and reparation from my little heart to Your and Jesus’ Sorrowful Hearts. I also offer You all the graces that may be granted because of my prayers, for the accomplishment of Your intentions. Do accept this waiving of personal graces as an atoning sacrifice out of gratitude and Love, with a view to bringing reparation.
To You I consecrate the repentance over all sins committed throughout my life.
To You I consecrate all Holy Masses I have ever assisted at and will yet assist at, by way of reparation for Your Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart and the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, and as an expiation offered to the Eternal Father for all sacrileges and lack of Love to the Holy Trinity and to You.
To You I consecrate all apostolic works I have ever engaged in or will yet engage in. Do accept them as a song of praise to You and to God, and do bless them for the benefit of accomplishing God’s Plan of Salvation for the world.
To You I consecrate my entire life, so that it may be a Magnificat in Your and in God’s honour. On account of all the Love in my heart, do accept my life as an all-embracing gift of gratitude.
As Your eternal servant I consecrate to You all people who are not consecrated to You, so that all their good deeds that are not offered to You may serve You as flowers for this world, and the effects of all their sins may by Your hands be taken away from Satan. May You thereby truly rule this entire world as the Queen of Love and the Gate to Heaven.
Dear Mother Mary, I want to live only for the purpose of serving You, and in so doing, of belonging to God. Do make Your wishes known to me at any time. Do unto me as You please, for You I will accept it unconditionally.
Like You have consecrated Yourself to God totally in order to serve the Eternal Father’s Plan of Salvation through Your being Jesus’ Mother, I consecrate myself totally to You, so that, in my turn, I may be an instrument in God’s Plan of Salvation. May all of my words, thoughts and actions be Your possession, in Your honour, for God’s Glory, and for the benefit of His creation.

♥ ♥ ♥

Mary presented Herself to God in the temple in an act of total consecration. In Her following You can consecrate your entire being to Her, in order to belong to God with Your entire life, through Her. Consecration is a holy bond you should not conclude too lightly. In a manner of speaking it is tantamount to an agreement through which You give yourself to the Holy Virgin Mary as Her servant for life, with a view to helping advance the establishment of the Kingdom of Christ through your sacrifices, prayers, apostolic works and tireless and unrestricted love towards your fellow creatures, for that is what Mary’s mission is all about. In exchange for this She will obtain you Eternal Life, provided you keep rendering your service in a state of grace.

37. CONSECRATION TO MARY, THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Today I praise You as the perfect window to God, as the only human soul who was ever conceived in a human being through direct Divine action and who lived in perfect purity ever since and for all eternity. Being exempt from the original sin and from any defiling influence, no evil was ever able to affect You, and from the beginning You were predestined to defeat Satan. God intended You to be the model for the image of the human being as He had meant it to be when He created it.
You want to guide all of Your children to God’s Paradise of purity. So many of them have allowed the evil one to befog their hearts, minds and souls, so that they no longer see the Light.
Because I long to reach the gates of Heaven under Your guidance, I have entered into Your service unrestrictedly. On this feast glorifying Your total and immaculate purity I want to offer You all situations, experiences and feelings which have ever separated my soul from the purity God intended for me.
I offer You all occasions on which I have disappointed You, Jesus and my Eternal Father, or on which I have failed to offer You my cross in equanimity as a sacrificial flower.
Every lack of self-sacrifice I humbly lay down at Your feet like a bunch of roses of conciliation.
Oh most pure Celestial Flower, do accept them as a gift from a penitent heart, and liberate me from every burden that has ever oppressed my heart, and from all resentment, bitterness, frustration or disappointment that has ever poisoned my soul.
Dear Immaculate Mother, teach me under all circumstances to understand that every trial crossing my path is a means through which You can bring my soul nearer to the purity You desire for me so much.
Help me detach my heart from material things, for they tie me to the chains of evil and separate me from Your most pure Light.
Help me spread Your purity of heart and soul around, so that I may be able to guide my brothers and sisters to You and Jesus.
Dear Mother, sin has made my soul ill. Do therefore take her up into Your arms and heal her through Your purity, so that, after Your example, I may acquire the sanctity God has foreseen for me.
May through Your purifying hands touching my soul, the latter be prepared for the Divine kiss which once sealed Your Immaculate Conception and made You the Mirror of Divine Purity on earth.

40. CONSECRATION TO MARY FOR CHRISTMAS EVE

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
In early spring You said "yes" to receiving me as the germ which was to become Your child. You bore me for nine months, and nourished me with the holy strength of Your Love.
In this holy night of Christmas I am rapping at the door of Your Immaculate maternal Heart, imploring You to give birth to me as a full-fledged child of Mary.
Like little Jesus did in those days in the grotto at Bethlehem, I want to appear before You tonight in my nothingness, like a helpless child who is totally dependent on You.
If incarnated Divinity needed You so much, how much less then could I do without You.
Back then there was no place for Jesus among people. Even now we, who are Your children, are so misunderstood by many, and the focus of Satan’s hostility. That is why my birth, too, tonight is not going to be one without tears, for I, too, already feel the cross my Love for my Heavenly Mother and Father is going to lay on my shoulder. But Your smile will give me the strength to grow and become strong for You.
Tonight, wrap me in the cloths of Your sanctity, for the world out there is cold.
Press me onto Your Immaculate Heart, which is flowing over with the Love I have been steeped in for nine months while I was in Your womb.
Lay me down in the manger of Your secure, caring arms, for in my nothingness I have got no-one to turn to but my Mother.
Have the Holy Spirit breathe upon me, so that my birth may help spread God’s Light.
Rock me to the joyful chant of Your angels for the new child born of Mary.
Like a proud Mother show me to the Father, for Him to see that another shoot has come forth from the root of Jesse.
And when, like Herod did in Your days, Satan is looking for me to kill me, then take me up and get me out of harm’s way, like You departed with little Jesus for Egypt, so that, being out of the big murderer’s reach, we can slay him as from one single heart.
Now You are still alone, numb with the cold from human hearts, and in tears. But tonight I am coming to join You, with a tiny heart beating thanks to You and just for You.
I am going to dispel Your loneliness. My Love is going to warm You.
Our hearts are going to be merged forever, to keep beating in the same rhythm for all eternity.
From Your hands I am going to eat the food You give me. I will speak the words You will teach me. My gratitude will honour You.
I will be anywhere You want me to be, and do anything You long for me to do. My footsteps are going to write my Mother’s holy name everywhere. I am going to be Yours entirely, beyond the boundaries of death.
Open up, dear Mother, and behold the fruit of Your Love. Even before the new dawn our hearts will be one, and by Your greatness and my nothingness we are going to win hearts for the Light.


www.maria-domina-animarum.net

43. CONSECRATION ON THE FEAST OF CANDLEMAS

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Like one day You offered Jesus to God in the Temple, I now implore You, do offer also me to God today, in the Temple of Your Immaculate Heart.
Carry me upon Your arm, too, oh Mother, so that the beating of Your loving motherly Heart may fill my heart with Peace and trust, and may let me forget the world in complete surrender to Your peaceful Presence.
Oh perfect window to God, do grant me the Light from Your tender eyes when I look up at You, so that the joy, the purity and the determination of Your glance may pervade my entire being.
Behold my nothingness, dear Mother, I cannot even stand on my own feet. I want to walk towards God, but the going is tough and full of dangers. When carried upon Your arms, my fears disappear, and I feel secure. Even my weakness appears to be a blessing.
No evil force can touch me when You are softly speaking to me, praying for me, and immersing me in the ocean of God’s Mercy to be purified.
I am so helpless, dear Mother, do speak on my behalf my 'yes' to the Eternal Father, the "yes" I have been living through my Love and consecration to You. Do seal for me the holy bond through which You will use me as a full-fledged tool for God’s Plan of Salvation, which You are privileged to help implement.
Oh Gate of Heaven, take me up into Your Immaculate Heart and immerse me today in the Eternal Light of the Most Holy Trinity, so that, as of today, I may be able to bring the fire of God’s Spirit to the hearts that are pining away in darkness and cold.

48. CONSECRATION TO THE MOST BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
FOR THE FORTY DAYS OF LENT

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
During this Lent I offer You my material attachments, which keep me captive under sin. Please deign to free me from the ties that remind me of my imperfections.
Every day I want to give You flowers of mortification, daily expressions of love which will enrich my soul with the beauty with which God has endowed Your Immaculate Being.
May the purifying fire of self-sacrifice obtain me the purity which will grant me the understanding of the Mystery of Easter, so that I may be able to stand by Jesus and You on Mount Calvary, in a spirit of true love, that I may mourn with You on Holy Saturday, and that I may witness the Resurrection of Jesus through the mystical eyes of the Holy Spirit.
Give me the strength to mortify myself completely during this Lent. Grow within me, make me smaller than I ever was, so that, on Calvary, I may dispose of my impure worldly being and, adorned with Your virtues, I may be able to rise from my ashes as a soul that is ready for the Coming of God. Thus I, too, will rise from the sleep of material life which paralyses the flight of my soul, and I will be free and open to the sanctifying Gifts from the Holy Spirit, who only appears where the Immaculate Heart of His Bride resides.
May the spirit of true love for You and Jesus make me long every day for the penance which will make my heart understand what it was that kept moving You throughout Your life, so that I may walk in Your footsteps on the path to purity.
Immaculate Queen, during this Lent, deign to guide me on the path to spiritualization, of which You know every inch, and on which Your Motherly Heart once united itself with Jesus, so that I, too, may leave the dark sides of worldly life behind me. Let me follow You in self-sacrifice and detachment, give myself to You in reparation of the Sorrows You and Jesus suffer on account of the doings of man who only lives by the laws of the flesh, and thus give You and Jesus the proof of my eternal love.

50. CONSECRATION ON THE FEAST OF THE ANNUNCIATION

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
When God elected You to give Jesus to the world, Your becoming my Mother was prepared as well. Although the Eternal Father respected Your free will, You gave up Your entire life to be completely at the service of God and of all mankind, and You sacrificed Yourself completely to the Cross of our Redemption.
Through the Mystery of the Incarnation, which was prepared by the angel’s visit to You, God testified to His infinite Love for You and trust in You. Therefore, today let me in my turn show You my complete Love and trust. Today do accept my perfect surrender to You. I want to be at Your complete disposal, so that God may be able to work freely within me through You. That is why, today, I offer my free will up to You, totally and unconditionally, so as to enable You to act within me just as You please. May I, too, thus become a temple of Eternal Wisdom, like Your immaculate being was one ever since the Holy Spirit overshadowed You.
Dear Mother, in You God was well pleased, and You drew Him towards You by wanting to stay a child for Him, in a bond of peaceful self-restraint and the pure simplicity of true sanctity. Let me in my turn remain small, hidden under Your tender protection, only big in Love for You and for God’s creation. Like You shaped Jesus in Your womb, I beg You to shape me as well, so that I may keep growing after God’s image and that I may live in accordance with His Plan, and in my turn draw Him towards me forever through my own word of consent.

♥ ♥ ♥

By consecrating yourself to MARY totally, unconditionally and forever, you become Her child as much as Jesus Himself was Her Child while He was in this world. God chose Mary to raise His Son as a Man on earth, and to give Him back to the Father. LET YOURSELF, TOO, BE 'RAISED' BY MARY, LET HER MOULD YOU INTO A HOLY SOUL, IN ORDER TO GIVE YOU TO GOD IN YOUR DYING HOUR SO THAT YOU MAY OBTAIN ETERNAL BLISS IN HEAVEN. Ask Her every day, Your Heavenly Mother is waiting for you!

51. CONSECRATION OF AN ILLNESS TO MARY

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Today I appear before You in the full awareness of my natural weakness.
I lay my illness into Your hands. Do offer it to God on the altar of Your Immaculate Heart, as a flower of suffering for the Salvation of this world, like Jesus did.
Obtain for me the grace of an enlightened mind, so that I may find a meaning and purpose for my being ill. Do teach me to understand that my suffering while living on this earth will sanctify my soul and will become a source of graces for my fellow person if I am able to bear it with Love and patience.
Obtain for me the force of a joyful mood and equanimity, so that I may be able to offer You the sacrifice of this trial like a flower to comfort You, instead of a new thorn into Your Sorrowful Heart.
My loving Mother, do not be sad about Your child being sick, for I want to give You joy through my self-denial and the detachment from my physical being.
Oh Mary, like Your Presence made the burden of Jesus’ Sufferings more bearable, I too, out of Love for You, want to lift this cross with regained spirits, now that I know You will be by my side forever.

♥ ♥ ♥

Everything happens for a reason, including illness. It is therefore imperative that one should do something with it. As long as one experiences illness as a burden, one will get irritated or depressed by it. However, as soon as one manages to become aware of the fact it is meaningful, illness will no longer be an enemy, but an instrument, a sort of capital one can put at God’s disposal.
Illness can sanctify the soul, and physical suffering can change one’s character, one’s personality and one’s vision of life. As soon as one becomes aware of it being meaningful, it sets one growing. It makes one realize that all physical suffering is merely temporary. What lasts a long time by worldly standards, is insignificant when compared with the life of Eternal Bliss awaiting the soul if she leads her life the way God expects her to. Making sacrifices for God with Love, is a thing one must do here and now, for only here on earth does one get the opportunity to do so. The first joy is found in the soul’s becoming aware of the fact her suffering, borne with Love and patience, in equanimity and joy, has got the ability of yielding her fellow person graces. Mary takes care of this, in Her capacity as the Mediatrix of all Graces. Consequently one can also give delight to Mary Herself by doing so, for because of it, She will be able to help Her other children. If, however, the sick person is grumpy because of his illness, he sticks another thorn into Her Sorrowful Heart. She has been suffering so much over this sinful world. If a person offers his sufferings to Mary as a present, She is indubitably going to remain by his side, just like She did with Jesus along His Way of the Cross, and Her Presence is going to give him the strength to carry his cross.

57. CONSECRATION TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Beloved Holy Spirit, I consecrate myself to You.
Turn me into a child of the Light.
Do grant me the fullness of Your Gifts.
Clean the garden of my soul of the ill weeds of my sins, so that the tree of my life may bear fruit.
Turn my heart into a temple of purity, a place of sanctity where I am allowed to consecrate souls to Mary and to Jesus.
May Your Pentecostal fire burn everything within me that is dead. Do wake within my soul the Eternal Life she was created with, but which has been slumbering underneath the blanket of worldly darkness.
Deliver me from all worldly confusion. Open my eyes to the Plan God predestined me for.
Do pour undying Love out into my heart, so that I may find pleasure only in giving, and that I may reach full richness through the complete surrender of my entire being. Let me drink from the Ocean of Your Graces, so that the source of my generosity, too, may never dry up, and that I may become a moon passing God’s Light on to the world.
Holy Spirit, I am Yours entirely. Shine Your Divine Wisdom down upon my spirit. Do illuminate my path through life with Divine Fire day after day, so that I may always find God’s pathways, that my eyes may behold Your Heavenly Bride Mary, and that I may be able to understand Her guidance.
Oh Holy Spirit, grant me the knowledge of Eternal Truth. Let my eyes see what really is.

♥ ♥ ♥

Our era is in very urgent need of the Gifts of God’s Spirit being poured out into the souls. In spite of the rapidly increasing degree of material evolution this world is immersed in an unparalleled deep darkness. Invocation of, and prayer to, the Holy Spirit constitutes one of the major keys to the establishment of the Kingdom of Christ on earth. It is therefore no coincidence that the Holy Virgin should motivate us so ardently to turn to the Holy Spirit. Always do this in unity with Mary, for Her power to receive the outpourings of the Holy Spirit is truly unlimited. Serve Her in perfect obedience, and She will obtain for you the unlimited treasures of the Holy Spirit, which will transform your entire being and your entire life to an unsuspected extent, even during your life on earth.

62. CONSECRATION IN HONOUR OF OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL

(Consecration of a religious life)

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Ever since my heart heard the call of silence and the Eternal Word invited my soul to the Wedding, my life has become an uninterrupted 'yes' to the Good News of a life with and for God.
Into Your hands, oh blessed Mother, I have laid my worldly life. In exchange You have given me the fullness of a life with Jesus and You.
In exchange for my gift of renunciation You have made me rich in eternal values, which will guide my soul towards sanctification by the sounds of the Gospel.
Oh Mother, the more Love grows within me, the more painful it gets. Its fire is trying my human nature. It is turning me into a shadow in the Light of infinity.
Give me Your eyes of Mount Golgotha, and I will recognize true beauty. What a sight for sore eyes it will be to see my God, how tender Your eyes when my penance and mortification will give birth, within me, to the stainless soul the Light of the world has intended me to have.
Deliver my mind from the chaos of the world. Adorn me with Your motherly hand for the only merger I should cherish in this life.
To You I consecrate every action, every thought, every glance exchanged in silent understanding, so that You may be able to rule our community, care for it and protect it.
Strengthen me in the spirit of inner calm and self-control after Your image.
Teach me how to love silence, because the voice of God rides upon it.
May my mouth be able to control itself, for true Wisdom is recognized only where it is whispered.
Make Yourself visible to my fellow person through my modesty and simplicity.
May my tolerance remind him of Jesus, who in His seeming weakness has defeated the world.
I consecrate my faith to You, so that it may remain steady as a rock everyone who is carried off by the surf of worldly life, will be able to cling to. Thus turn me into a light of encouragement for those who are willing to follow me in my aspiring for unity with God and with You, but are discouraged to do so by the madness of the world.
Oh Mother of the Church, do become my Refuge in all my moments of trouble. Be my Comfort in all my moments of hidden suffering. Keep the Spirit’s Fire burning inside of me, so that I may keep repeating my word of consent, day after day, until my marriage will be fully consummated.

65. TRIBUTE TO MARY'S GLORIOUS ASSUMPTION INTO HEAVEN

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
May I behold You in the glory of Your Assumption into Heaven.
You were given to mankind in an unparalleled purity.
In inconspicuous virtuousness, so little in the eyes of the world, You gave us the Light. Human eyes were not to fathom Your true sublimity.
Through Your being assumed into Heaven in glory God glorified You in all virtues.
Sublime Mother, remind me of the fact that the things which are allegedly great are visible only in the darkness. The true Light only lets smallness shine forth.
Like shadows become visible only where the sun appears, Your Presence inside my heart revealed my nothingness to me.
My nothingness makes me feel nostalgic whenever You reveal Your sublimity to my soul’s eye, deliver my soul up to Your miraculous works, let my tender heart beat to the enchanting rhythm of Your Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, and let me behold Your glorified Being through windows that have remained shut for so long.
My sublime Mother, remind me of the fact that nothing which has been consecrated to Him in all sincerity, is ever lost for God’s Love. Your entire life was an uninterrupted gift to God. Therefore nothing about You has ever really died. The Eternal Father even called the material cloak of Your immaculate soul back to Him.
Now You are giving Yourself to me in the fullness of Your Being.
Tirelessly You remain by my side, always and everywhere. Love and purity are watching my every step. Your roses and lilies even enchant my rainy days, when my erring and tormented soul finds Your warm Presence back inside my heart, where You are waiting for me like a mother is waiting for her lost child.
Oh Mother, I consecrate to You my last journey, in order that You may be able to guide me along the blessed path You went when You left this world. In that hour You are going to lead me into the House of a thousand joys. So as to enable me to look forward to a safe journey, my sublime Mother Mary, do graciously grant me the favour that, today, I may assume You once and for all into the Heaven You Yourself have been preparing for me inside my heart.

♥ ♥ ♥

Mary never 'died' in the actual sense of the word, She 'passed' into 'the other Life'. This was an exceptional privilege God granted Her on account of the unique merits She had earned by Her most holy life and vocation. It is a good thing to consider that God had actually provided this destination for every single human soul.

68. PRAYER TO MARY TO OBTAIN CONVERSIONS

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Whenever Your maternal Heart is hurting, my childlike heart is hurting, too.
Every moment of every day Your Sorrowful Heart and the pierced Heart of Jesus are wounded by human sins.
That is why I implore Your tender mercy and the grace of conversion for my poor sisters and brothers:

  • who are entangled in sin and in a life without God;

  • who have shut themselves down to God's Love and have surrendered their hearts to values which guide them to eternal death;

  • who are searching happiness in material pleasures and, because of their disappointment, have turned against God and their fellow creatures;

  • who mock all actions, words and examples reminding them of God and His Law of Love;

  • who have unawarely fallen prey to the prince of darkness, who is keeping them captive in their ignorance, is inspiring them pseudo needs and has them bow down to these needs as so-called holy values ruling out all Christian Love;

  • who are killing their own souls by aspiring only for the enhancement of their self image.

My hurting Mother, for the sake of these beloved sisters and brothers I implore forgiveness and purification of their hearts, minds and souls.
May they feel embraced by God's Love.
Grant them the understanding that their attitude is pointless and can only yield them everlasting sorrows.
Inspire them the courage to part with their bad habits, no matter what reactions from their environment they may meet with.
May their respect and Love of everything sacred increase, in order that their hearts may open up to the Law of Love as the only way towards true happiness.
May they long for Holy Mass, so that they may get to know Jesus as their best Friend.
May they learn how to love the Gospel, their Redeemer and their Heavenly Mother above all and any secular wealth.
May they long to venerate You as their Mother of Consolation, who enables them to forget the chillness of their empty lives.
May the joy of their conversion show the way of the Light to all those who are sharing their fate and their attitudes towards life.
Dear Sorrowful Mother, do cleanse all hearts of any diabolical materialism and egoism, and do guide every one of us to the Light, in order that God's Kingdom of Love may bloom in all Your children for the joy of their Mother, who loves them so dearly.

72. PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT TO BE DELIVERED FROM DARKNESS

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Beloved Holy Spirit, Messenger of the Light,
From the agony of our darkened souls we call upon You.
Darkness is hiding our true being from our own view. The windows of our hearts remain closed to our fellow man. God is but a mere shadow in some dark place far away.
Our ears are deafened by the screaming ignorance of this world. Open them up to the serene Truth of the Gospel.
Our eyes are tired because of the darkness of atheism all around us. Open them up to the radiance of true sanctity.
Our speechless mouths speak the silent sentence of the indifferent ones. Open them up, so that they may proclaim God’s Justice.
Our minds are slumbering on the soothing waves of a material life devoid of all emotions. Wake them up through the invigorating strength of Wisdom.
Our hearts are waning in the desolate cold of hate and selfishness. Do burn the brand of the world away from our hearts through the all-consuming fire of Love.
Our inner disposition is drowning in the storms caused by the prince of all chaos and insecurity. Do take away all doubts from the human hearts in the signs of God’s Presence, so that our fickleness may be turned into an indestructible loyalty to the Kingdom of Eternal Joy.
Our murdered senses become alive only in the convulsions of everything that is meant to shock and to humiliate our fellow man. Give them Eternal Life in the relish of the beauty of true simplicity and charity.
Our souls are slowly dying from the poison from Eve’s apple. Give them Jesus’ Body to eat, give them His Blood to drink, bathe them in Mary’s tears, and perfume them by the anointing touch from our Heavenly Lily, so that they may pass away to the Kingdom of the Light in the scent of sanctity.

♥ ♥ ♥

Everything that is related to worldly things is a bearer of elements of darkness. Everything that is related to Heaven, is Light. Our trials, pains and sorrows can bear fruit only, and our ignorance, deceptions and delusions can only be broken if we open ourselves up completely to the Light. Opening yourself up to the Light means to make contact with the Holy Spirit, to allow yourself to be conquered by Him. He can deliver you from all darkness.

83. GREETING TO MY GUARDIAN ANGEL

(Myriam van Nazareth)

My dear guardian angel, God’s gift to my worldly weakness, closer to me than my shadow, with Love and gratitude I greet you as my celestial brother.
Every morning you open my eyes, for them to see the world in a Heavenly Light.
Do pray for me, so that I may become holy, and that I may reach my destination as a child of God.
Let me feel your hand in the face of any obstacle and at every cross-roads on the path of my life.
Be my shield whenever the devil may try to lay his hands on me.
Unite yourself with me whenever I am praying, so that my prayers may obtain an angelic purity.
Do complement the imperfection of my prayer, so that it may be worthier of God, and that it may serve the world.
Watch over me when I am immersed in prayer and dead to the world. Do then guide me safely on the way back to the mortal temple of my soul.
Thank and praise God and Mary on my behalf. Do not stop giving Them the Love which is consuming my heart, yet is running astray on the long way to my mouth.
Keep my eyes fixed on the Light, so as to prevent the darkness from diverting my attention from my true destination.
Do not ever stop filling my ears with your soft voice, so that I may no longer hear the loud cry from evil.
Do speak through my mouth, so that all my words may be songs of praise to God.
Obtain my body the strength it needs in order for me to fulfill all my duties and my apostolic work. Pray for me whenever I am weak, ill or unconscious, and am not able to pray myself.
Tonight, let me go to sleep under your wings, so that darkness may find me as a holy light.
My dear brother in Heaven, do strengthen me in my hour of death for the last struggle, and lay me down at Mary’s feet, so that my Advocate, through Her purest hands, may offer me to Eternal Light.

85. PRAYER TO THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
FOR THE PURIFICATION OF MANKIND

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Immaculate Conception of the infinite Divine Love that keeps breathing Life into eternity, do spread the cloak of Your powerful protection all over us.
Oh Lily from the Garden of all Life, breathe upon me the tender breeze of God’s strength, so that I may blossom into a stainless flower for God’s Last Times.
Oh most pure Virgin, may the burning Love from Your Immaculate Heart give birth to coredeemers rendering Satan’s realm unfruitful.
Oh Mother of our Redeemer, rescue us from the clutches of all evil forces which keep crucifying Jesus time and time again.
Oh Bride of the Holy Spirit, shed Light into darkened spirits and the fire of Love into frozen hearts, make the fullness of grace fill up our inner emptiness.
Oh sweet voice of the Last Times, shut our weak ears to the deafening cries of all infernal temptations.
Oh Queen of celestial beauty, lend us Your eyes, so that we may recognize the ugliness of sin.
Oh radiant Light shining into our worldly darkness, resuscitate in our souls the hope for the joys of Paradise, so that within us the blossoms of repentance may bloom, from which the fruits of conversion spring.
Oh Heavenly Teacher and Guide, strengthen us in our consecration to You and to the Holy Trinity, and guide us in the renewal of our baptismal vows to turn away from all evil, so that the stain of the original sin may no longer distort us.
Oh Queen of Eternal Love, cleanse our deceived hearts of the poison of hatred. May the ray of burning Love from Your Immaculate Heart inflict a wound of Love upon all hearts, because this is the only wound that can make us stronger in proportion as its bleeding increases.
Oh pure Mother of Mercy, seal the holy bond with Your children, and build a bridge of roses between all hearts, so that the scent of sanctity may show us to way to You.
Dear Mother Mary,
Do obtain for all of Your children Your purity of soul, mind, heart and body, so that we, just like You, may joyfully follow God’s ways with abandon, and may turn away from sin forever.

87. PRAYER TO INVITE MARY, MOTHER OF THE LIGHT

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
While winter is ruling the hearts, and evil is counting its captives, I can see You, lonely and looking for security, for the Light’s desire has become pressing.
Many doors have remained closed to You. Others were opened, yet were shut again before Your very eyes, due to the power of disbelief and egoism. How painful is the Light radiating from Your Face to blinded eyes that have opted for the darkness. Even God’s Gift You are bearing inside of You does not open up any locks.
Like a star in the dark night You are beckoning the flame of hope in my eager soul.
I have heard You knocking. When I set eyes on You the Holy Spirit welcomed my heart, and it opened up to You. My eyes beheld a fire that does not cast shadows, and Your begging servant has recognized her long awaited Queen of the Light.
Oh Messenger from Heaven, I offer You my little house forever. Do honour the table of my soul with Your Presence, and nobody who visits me will get hungry ever again, for You are carrying the Bread of Eternal Life.
The warm glow of my Love will embrace You, and Your immaculate beauty will invite angels and human souls to my little house.
The roses of Your Love and the lilies of Your purity will adorn my table until the end of times.
Oh Mother of God, tonight do give birth to the Light on the straw of my spiritual poverty. It is going to shine into the darkness, and its radiance will illuminate many little houses.
May the world thus understand the Heavenly message and accept the gift of the Light.
May Love and Peace announce the new spring, and may all little lights to whom it is denied to be born, after Your visit be accepted in the warmth of illuminated hearts.

91. PRAYER TO MARY, MOTHER OF PERPETUAL HELP

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Mother of all times, You who inspirit all hearts, to You I pray for the alleviation of my fellow man’s distress.
Oh Sorrowful Mother, take pity on those who are sad and enduring severe heartache. Uplift them, so that they may be able to empty the cup for the salvation of souls.
Oh Mediatrix of all Graces, take pity on those who are physically or mentally ill. Give them the strength to make their cross victorious.
Oh Co-Redemptrix, take pity on the souls in purgatory. Lead them to eternal bliss.
Oh Advocate, take pity on those who are living in state of mortal sin. Speak but one single word, and their souls will not be lost.
Oh Mother of God, take pity on those who disregard God or deny His existence. Obtain for them the wisdom and courage to open up their hearts to the breath of eternity.
Oh Immaculate Queen, take pity on those who have made sin to be their true path through life. So lead them towards the purity God has predestined for their souls.
Oh Terror of demons, take pity on those who, consciously or unconsciously, are instruments of evil. May Your Love snatch them from the slavery towards Satan.
Oh Mother of the Church, take pity on those who neglect Holy Mass or who receive Jesus with indifference. Make them hunger for the Bread of Eternal Life and thirst for the Blood of their Redemption.
Oh Throne of Wisdom, take pity on those who have turned material things into their gods. Open up their blinded eyes to the eternal values.
Oh Queen of Love, take pity on those who live only for themselves. Lay charity and a sense of unselfish service into their hearts, so that they may become tools in God’s hands.
Oh tender Mother, take pity on those who are lonely. May they sense Your motherly Presence, so that they may know they are not going the way towards God all by themselves.
Oh Queen of Peace, take pity on those who are suffering by war or discord in their environment. Imbue them with Your meekness, so that they may be able to break through their armour of hate.
Oh Source of our joy, take pity on those who are in low spirits or disappointed. Inspirit them with the fire from Your Heart, so that the cold may leave their lives.
Oh Mother of the poor, take pity on those who are no longer coping with misery and deprivation. Open up their hearts to the unfathomable richness of the soul that gives herself up into Your hands.
Oh merciful Mother of Perpetual Help, to You I entrust all hearts and souls that are wrapped up in darkness. May they, in Your Presence, trust that beyond the clouds true Life is waiting for them.

101. PETITION TO MARY, MEDIATRIX OF ALL GRACES

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Hearth of Love and motherly tenderness, filled with innocent Love for Your sorrowful Heart I beg You, do extend Your saving hand towards my sisters and brothers, and save them from perdition. Do speak Your word, and the souls will live.
Do obtain for the darkened souls a beam of God’s infinite Light, which has pervaded You so abundantly.
Do pour Your burning Love into each human heart, so that sin and indifference may be singed to ashes that are banned from our midst by the holy winds of the Spirit.
Do clothe Your children in Your purity, so that they may flee from sin and be able to weave a wreath of Light around this world.
Do obtain for the erring souls Divine Wisdom, so that they may no longer be blinded by the backlight from the torch of death and perdition.
Do kindle within the souls true devotion, so that they may be able to free themselves from the chains of the world, and that they may aspire for the True Gold as their only source of prosperity.
Do obtain for Your children the virtue of hope, so that they may look forward to each and every day of their life in this place of exile with joy, and that they may find sense and meaning in their sufferings.
Do lead Your children to the Table of Mercy every single day, and give them the Bread that is going to save their starved souls from eternal death.
Do obtain for Your children a true understanding of the many-sided deception to which they are constantly falling prey, and guide them with Your soft motherly hand towards their conversion.
O powerful Mother, nothing is ever denied You. May, upon Your intercession, Heaven open up above all of Your children, in order for the Spirit to be able to fertilize the germ of sanctity within every soul.

♥ ♥ ♥

As soon as one has consecrated oneself to Mary completely, one should no longer care too much about people’s opinions, for the evil one uses people to sow confusion and dissatisfaction, and he does so using methods and strategies that get ever more devious in proportion as the vocation of the soul he is intent on destroying, is more dangerous to him. If an opinion is really inspired by Heaven, Mary is going to make the soul consecrated to Her able to feel this, for She is going to grant him or her the ability to distinguish between right and wrong, between real and fake.

108. PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT TO OBTAIN THE DIVINE LIGHT

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Beloved Holy Spirit,
Like an untransparent curtain darkness is enveloping the earth, and in the hearts the window to Your world is being shut.
Many of God's children have closed the door to their hearts.
Oh Most Sacred Fire of Divine Love, do break every door of self-damnation open and do take custody of the keys, so that no doubt, no fear, no insecurity and no deception from the place of eternal perdition may ever again get the opportunity to close them.
Let the curtain of all lack of Love be consumed in Your Fireplace of sanctity, so that every soul's eyes may behold the Eternal Light.
Let every shadow be dispelled from the hearts and do attract every eye towards Jesus and Mary, the Sun and the Moon from the Kingdom of Truth, who are going to turn the night into a never ending day.
May Their Light make the hidden paths of sin visible to every man's eyes.
May all darkness inside the hearts be consumed in the radiance of Their everlasting presence, so that mankind, in a spirit of total surrender, becomes and remains receptive to the wonders of consolation, illumination and Redemption God has been wanting to work behind all doors.

115. SUPPLICATION FOR THE COMING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Beloved Holy Spirit,
Burning arrow that pierces the hearts to impregnate all blood with the fire of sanctity, God’s creation has become so undercooled.
Tears of suffering, loneliness and torture have extinguished the fire of Love in countless hearts. The smouldering ashes of hope are all that is left for them.
Oh scorching wind of renewal, flowing out of Jesus’ mouth on the Cross of unappreciated Love, defrost the frozen hearts, heirs to the cold fires of hell.
Oh Flower of Eternal Truth, budding in the elected souls on the First Pentecost, do clean the neglected gardens of the ill weeds of deception.
Oh infinite Source of Light which enlightens darkened spirits, do raise to life everything that has died within the souls from the poison of ignorance. Close the eyes to the ghost lights from the kingdom of decadence.
Oh Treasury of eternal virtues, do kindle within the strayed hearts the longing for the marriage with Your Heavenly Bride Mary, the Treasurer of all Your Gifts, so that they may be quenched at the Fountain of Divine Graces.
Oh refreshing Breeze of creative Wisdom, dispel the smoke that hides the dangers of worldly life from glazed human eyes, so that they may be able to bury their lack of faith. Deliver God’s blind heirs from worldly thinking and worldly attachments.
Oh Omnipotence that breathes life into everything, do pour the knowledge of eternal values out into the hearts, so that they may live in joy and peace. Do teach God’s children how to discover and honour each other’s intrinsic beauty.
Come, Holy Spirit, sigh of Love, eternal Voice whispering the Word throughout the ages, come and fill us with God’s Wisdom.
Come, Holy Spirit, Fire of the creating tender Love, let every heart burn for God and for everything surrounding itself.
Come, Holy Spirit, winged Bearer of all knowledge, do reveal God’s glory to us, and reveal to us the deep nature of our own souls.
Come, Holy Spirit, Breath of Eternal Life, deliver us from the oppressing slavery of the darkness suffocating all hearts and souls.
Come, Holy Spirit, pour Yourself out into us with the fullness of God’s Gifts, so that we may find the way of sanctity leading to true happiness in Your Kingdom of the Light.

129. PRAISE TO MARY, QUEEN IN HEAVENLY GLORY

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
With the beauty like a thousand flowers You were born. In an unparalleled beauty Your star rose to the throne in the Kingdom of Eternal Life.
The Father created You pure as the angels. You sent them into raptures, and they recognized You as their Queen.
In the Most Holy Trinity’s Source of all creation, the royal crown of perfection in all virtues was prepared for You.
Your soul was clothed in a royal robe of graces. You wore it in royal dignity as of the most holy Dawn until the moon came and greeted Your glory.
The Spirit clothed Your Womb with the cloak of the most holy purity, and within You the King grew in glory.
Within You the espousal to the King was consummated. Your Heart became the palace of the new kingdom of Love. No other human soul but You ever possessed the Son of the Supreme King, no soul was more intimately united with Him as Yours.
At the foot of the Cross of Christ the King Your tears were forged into pearls in Jesus’ dying Heart. Your enlarged Motherly Heart, the heritage of Your participation in my Salvation, became the scepter of roses with which You rule the hearts of those who love You. The eternal Divine heritage of Golgotha made You the Guide of all souls.
The flowers of virtue sowed in Your soul self-humiliation, and harvested elevation and coronation in the Front Garden to the Throne.
Your body sought for total mortification in complete spiritualization, yet the corruption of death never affected Her who became the Queen in the Kingdom of Eternal Life.
In the light of Your longing eyes, under the golden beams of the evening sun Heaven above You broke open, all glory of the ages enveloped Your soul and body, and the key to the infinite Treasury of Graces was laid into Your hands.
Like animating dew Your royal intercession now wraps itself around withering hearts. Tears, shed in their favour before the Throne of Mercy, are showered into their souls like flowers of joy.
Oh highly elevated Queen, the sight of Your unspeakable glory sends my contemplating soul into raptures, for in this glory she recognizes the fire of the Light from which she, too, has sprung.
Do let Your glory shine upon all souls, so that it may become their light on their path to the Kingdom.

140. WORD OF CONSENT TO MARY, MOTHER OF SORROWS

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Wrapped in the cloak of Sorrows, more beautiful than an angel, You appear in my heart, requesting me to speak my word of consent.
Oh Mother, the fire of Love in Your saddened eyes has impressed Your holy name upon my little heart.
The inextinguishable glow leads me on paths of unity the burning drops from Your eyes have mapped out for me.
May it be done to me according to Your word. I have consented to receiving within me Jesus carrying His Cross.
On account of the Spirit overshadowing my heart He has been growing inside of me.
In a hidden Mystery of merger with You I have been able to carry Him.
In the dark of the winter night I have testified of Him, yet the darkness did not accept Him.
Now Your wounded maternal Heart asks for my testimony at the foot of the Cross of self-sacrifice.
Like Your most holy womb gave birth to Salvation in blissful joy, Your Immaculate Heart now inconsolably gives birth to Your benedictive sadness in my heart which has now become our heart.
Oh Mother, am I not Your child of Golgotha. You see, no other favour pleases me but to be allowed to stand by Your side as soon as I have heard You calling me, my eyes focused on the Cross from which the red flow of Salvation is pouring.
With a view to achieving the uniformity and unity of hearts for which You have been calling me, that is where I want to be pierced by the sword which was meant to pierce You.
Yes, Mother, I give myself up to You totally and unconditionally, so that I may become worthy of inviting You into my being when the next rain will be there for You, and that my offering of Love may soften Your loneliness from the never ending Golgotha.

♥ ♥ ♥

How gracious it is to be allowed to partake in Mary’s Sorrows. It is an invaluable blessing for Your own soul and the soul of many others. There is more than one way in which you can be called to unite with the Mother of Sorrows. Mary can invite you to offer your daily suffering to Her. She can call you to experience certain forms of mystical suffering. She can also let you feel you can help Her bear Her sufferings on account of the world, by helping to relieve your fellow man’s suffering. This, also, can happen in any number of ways. Jesus and Mary, too, are suffering in the human in distress. Every effort to relieve your fellow man’s sufferings may therefore be regarded as relieving Jesus’ and Mary’s Sufferings.

148. PRAYER TO THE ETERNAL FATHER
TO OBTAIN FORGIVENESS FOR MY SINS

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Beloved Eternal Father,
God of Light, Beginning and End of the soul’s journey,
Spread the warmth of Your forgiving Heart out upon Your poor child.
By virtue of Jesus’ Birth in the deepest poverty, forgive me for each time I longed for material well-being or worldly delights.
By virtue of Jesus' proclamation of God’s Word, forgive me for each time I failed to serve Truth or my mouth failed to give thanks or praise to the Most Holy Trinity.

154. CONSECRATION OF SINNERS TO MARY

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Sweet Refuge of sinners, upon whose intercession chains of bondage are broken in repentant hearts.
I entrust to You all souls that have violated the Law of God’s Love, and implore that Your sanctity and Your tender maternal Love may lift them up from their weakness, so that they may henceforth become beacons of light at the foot of the Cross.
I consecrate to You the dissolute souls, who are indifferent to their situation. Do tell them that Jesus, in the Garden of Gethsemane, shed Blood and tears because they are refusing God’s gift of Love.
I consecrate to You those who are indifferent to God and to their fellow man. Do tell them that, at Gethsemane, Jesus accepted the bitter cup of Suffering in order to glorify Love.
I consecrate to You those who judge their fellow man or criticize him. Do tell them that Jesus, in spite of being innocent, was condemned by the High Priests because nobody knew Him the way He actually was.
I consecrate to You the ones living in vanity, making a bad use of their bodies with a view to justifying their pride. Do tell them that Jesus delivered His perfect Body up to utter mutilation by the rod.
I consecrate to You the arrogant ones, who deny their smallness and weakness. Do tell them that Jesus let Himself be crowned with thorns to be mocked in His Divine majesty.
I consecrate to You those who do not accept the burdens of life and curse the cross God has entrusted to them as a gift of grace. Do tell them that Jesus, the Lamb of Divine innocence, took up the Cross for their benefit.
I consecrate to You those who are no longer willing to continue their journey through life. Do tell them that Jesus repeatedly fell under the Cross, and despite the prospect of a horrible death found an infinite Love to be the source of a strength enabling Him to take His burden upon His shoulder time and time again.
I consecrate to You those who deny the sacred character of the family. Do let them feel the exchange of perfect Love between You and Your Son in the utter distress on His Way of the Cross.
I consecrate to You those who are egoistic at heart and forsake their fellow man. Do show them how Jesus was helped on His Way of the Cross by Simon of Cyrene, who found his conversion in the sufferings of an innocent Man.
I consecrate to You the untruthful ones, who hide their true face. Do tell them that Jesus did not hesitate to commit the features of His Face, which was so distorted with Blood and the dirt of the earth, to Veronica’s cloth.
I consecrate to You the ones who seize that which has not been given to them by God. Do tell them how Jesus’ clothes were taken away, so that He might be able to lead souls into the Treasury of Eternal Life.
I consecrate to You those who have placed material things above everything else. Do tell them that Jesus allowed Himself to be attached to the Cross for them to be able to detach themselves from material things.
I consecrate to You those who do not respect life, and who have killed what was raised to life by Divine Love. Do tell them that Jesus died on the Cross in order to prepare Eternal Life for the souls.
Oh Mother of Sorrows, I behold You at the foot of the Source in which the souls of sinners are washed. Let them feel how Your maternal Heart is torn apart by the sword of sins, so that the flow of Your tears might open up their hearts in remorse and the Light of the Cross might show them the way to conversion.

173. CONSECRATION OF OUR CHILDREN TO MARY

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
To Your motherly protection and guidance I entrust our children, for they are the foundation of tomorrow’s new world, which is in such great need of holy souls.
Oh Queen of Heaven and earth, preserve like a precious gem in Your crown the purity God provided their little souls with when they were born, for one day it will be their big treasure when they reach the gates of Heaven.
Behold their little hearts, they are little flowers around which the angels play. I lay them in Your hands lest they wither, so that they may bloom in warmth until the day You will pick them for Jesus.
May the Holy Spirit upon Your prayer enlighten their little minds, and sow fervour and faith into the soil of their souls, so that the flower of their hearts may never be destroyed by the vermin of hate, selfishness and godlessness.
Open up their hearts to the grace of a deep devotion towards Jesus and You, so that God may be well pleased with their growing resistance against the countless temptations through which the world casts God’s gems into the abyss.
Do guide their unsteady steps, so that they may never get lost on the path of justice, which will take them over hills and through valleys towards God, for in the Father’s Eternal Kingdom only those will play, who have truly remained children.
Kiss their little hands, so that they may always be generous and that everything they touch may be blessed by their purity.
I give You their sicknesses and pains, through which their little bodies expiate so much that their young innocence is not yet able to understand.
I give You all their young grief. How sweet even their tears are going to be when Your angelic appearance caresses their little eyes.
Oh tender Mother of Love, just like God entrusted the little Jesus to You, I now lay our children in Your arms with full abandon and faith.
Sometimes their journey is going to seem endless to them, yet I know now that Your Love will keep carrying them even when I myself lack the strength to do it.
Sometimes their journey through life is going to disappoint them, yet I know now that You are even going to wait for them along the wayside whenever I will not be able to be there.
Sometimes their hearts will be threatened by the appealing temptation from paths that do not lead to Salvation, but I know now You are always going to lead them back to the right track, because I have given them to You today.

176. PRAYER TO THE MOST SACRED HEART OF JESUS

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Sacred Heart of Jesus, inexhaustible Granary between bleak winterly fields, You are the hope of each soul that has experienced the emptiness of the world.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, secure Sheepfold in a land of wolves, You are the hope of each soul that has been wounded by the teeth of the world.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Vessel that pours out the Blood of Redemption over a world in bondage, You are the hope of each soul that withers away in chains of tinsel.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Orchard of Life that rose up at the end of the road to death, You are the hope of each soul that is poisoned by the fruits of the world.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Bed of flowers in a steppe of desolation, You are the hope of each soul that no longer finds joy in the world.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Beacon of Light between hearts in darkness, You are the hope of each soul for whom the sun in the world has set for good.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Tree of Love planted in the realm of hate, You are the hope of each soul whose only sign of love in the world has been the Judas kiss.
Oh Sacred Heart of Jesus, To You I entrust each soul that is erring on the paths of the world, for in You every creature comes home.

♥ ♥ ♥

The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus expresses God’s unlimited goodness and bounty, as is demonstrated symbolically in the complete outpouring of Blood and water from the Heart after it had been pierced by the spear following Jesus’ Death on the Cross. Jesus’ Heart is also a refuge against all evil.

♥ ♥ ♥

"My dear Mother, this life on earth is a journey along an unknown itinerary full of dangers and pains. Nevertheless it is going to be the most beautiful journey I have ever made, because I will have been allowed to finish every stage of it with You. The pathways of the world have wounded my feet, yet ever since You are looking into my eyes, I am walking on clouds"...(Myriam, December 24, 1998)

♥ ♥ ♥

"Dear Mother, like the dew on the fields I want to rest at Your Heart, ready to rise into Heaven under the beams of the Eternal Sun". (Myriam, 1998, date never registered)

181. PRAYER TO MARY, QUEEN OF THE ROSARY

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
From Your Immaculate Conception onwards You have been sowing the roses of Your Love all over the world.
At Bethlehem You gave birth to the Flower of Redemption for the benefit of mankind, but on Mount Calvary man gave You thorns for it in return.
Every day the thorns of my indifference, my mistakes and my omissions, too, pierce Your loving Heart.
That is why, now, I come to You lovingly and humbly, to lay my prayer down at Your feet like roses.
May my roses spread the celestial fragrance of Your soul all over our world, so as to deliver it from the stench of sin.
May the beauty of my roses send You into rapture, so that the radiance of Your Love may purify our world of all that is ugly.
May my roses adorn You with the crown of eternal victory over the thorns of my vices, which are piercing Your Sorrowful Heart.
May my roses re-establish the splendour of God’s creation, which is enveloped in the colourless darkness of evil.
May my roses be the invigorating remedy for the sick souls in a state of disgrace, in whom the flowers of Eternal Life no longer bloom.
Oh most Holy Mother of Love, do string the roses of my prayers together into a crown of flowers embracing our world.
May they coronate You with the Love You Yourself keep sowing into the flower bed of my heart day by day, and may they be the answer to the chain of sins evil is trying to tie Your children up with.
Oh Queen of the Rosary, to You I entrust all my roses of Love, for I know that You are going to destine them to be bricks for the construction of many souls’ little dwellings in Heaven.

♥ ♥ ♥

The rose is usually referred to as the queen of flowers. The rose is a symbol of Love. Mary is also the Celestial Rose, the Embodiment of God’s infinite, perfect, ardent Love. It is your vocation as a Christian to be a rose for your fellow man: physical beauty is a gift you may be born with, or not, but the beauty of your heart and soul is the characteristic determining whether you are truly beautiful in the eyes of your fellow man, and in God’s eyes. Every evening on which you can say that, all day long, you have lived like a rose of true Love to God and to your fellow man, you can give yourself to Mary as if you were offering a flower. The more often you are able to give yourself to Her like a flower, the more closely your soul is going to get to the sanctity God has predestined you to achieve.

182. PRAYER TO THE ETERNAL FATHER
TO OBTAIN LIBERATION AND PROTECTION

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Beloved Eternal Father,
God of Love, Light and Life. Creator of my soul and of all which gives her joy. My Source and Destination in the bliss of Heaven.
To you I am calling to obtain Light in my darkness, strength in my torments, courage in my despair.
Purify my soul, my mind, my heart, the people I meet, and my whole environment of all evil and all influences that are not compatible with your Light.
By virtue of the Cross of Jesus, grant me the grace to overcome my weaknesses which lead me to sin, and save me from any threat from any instruments of evil.
By virtue of the Holy Wounds of Jesus, suffered for us out of perfect Love, deliver me from all hate and selfishness that are born in me, and of the hate and selfishness of which I am the victim.
By virtue of the Holy Blood of Jesus, Source of Salvation and healing, deliver me from all persecution and threats to soul and body, and from all fear in my mind and heart. Grant me the strength to persevere and trust in moments in which all seems lost.
By virtue of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, deliver me from all impurity that threatens my soul, mind, heart and body, and grant me the wisdom to recognize impurity and sin.
By virtue of the tears of Mary, our Co-Redemptrix, deliver me from all dejection by which evil undermines me, and of all indifference to the pains and needs of my fellow person.
By virtue of the Holy Church of Christ, deliver me from any spells of disbelief as to Eternal Salvation and Your Love, and of all aberrations as to the true faith that Jesus, the Redeemer, has proclaimed to guide us to eternal happiness.
By virtue of the Holy Sacraments, instruments of Your Mercy, points of contact between Heaven and earth, deliver me from all feelings of loneliness, desolation and barrenness. Anoint my entire being with the noticeable Presence of Jesus my Saviour, my loving Mother Mary, and the Holy Spirit my driving force.
Eternal Father, Source of Light and hope, grant me to live in the sanctifying grace, under the powerful protection of the angels of Light and strengthened by the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
I implore of You these favours in the most holy Names of Jesus Christ, my Redeemer, and of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, the Terror of Demons.

183. INVOCATION OF THE CROSS

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Jesus,
Dark clouds are casting shadows on the Mountain of Hope, and are trying to hide Your redeeming Cross from my eyes.
Lack of faith and failure to recognize God and all celestial powers are enveloping my environment in the deepest night, and intend to extinguish the Light inside my own soul.
Oh Jesus, do save Your world, do answer my imploring to obtain the glowing dawn of Truth.
DO RADIATE, OH CROSS, AND PERVADE ALL DARKNESS.

Hate, blindness and temptation are eating away like predators at everything that is dear to God, and are inflicting wounds to countless hearts and souls.
Oh Jesus, do save Your world, do answer my imploring to obtain a new world filled with Love and Life.
DO RADIATE, OH CROSS, AND PERVADE ALL DARKNESS.

Sinfulness and selfishness have turned the world into a cold place, and are threatening the Sun inside my heart. In so many souls the flowers of purity are freezing.
Oh Jesus, do save Your world, do answer my imploring to obtain the caressing warmth of God's Love and Peace in a holy world.
DO RADIATE, OH CROSS, AND PERVADE ALL DARKNESS.

My Jesus, Redeemer, God of Love, for the sake of the tears wept by Mary, my Mother of Sorrows and Co-Redemptrix, do burn Your Cross onto each heart, so that the Fire of True Divine Life may again consume the earth.

185. PRAYER INVOKING THE NAMES OF JESUS AND MARY
FOR THE SALVATION OF SOULS

(Myriam van Nazareth)

United Hearts of Jesus and Mary, that are Bearers of treasures of Salvation and grace in Your names made by God Himself, do sow the sweet sounds of Your Most sacred names like roses of liberation into the hearts of Your children, so that they may be delivered from the devil’s grasp.
Oh Jesus, Your redeeming name is the terror of all forces of darkness, for Your Cross has defeated them for all eternity.
Oh Mary, Your immaculate name is the desperation of all forces of darkness, for You have always had complete power over all sin.
Oh Jesus, Your promising name is the source of helplessness of all forces of darkness, for Your coming into the world has established God’s Kingdom of the Light.
Oh Mary, Your gracious name is the humiliation of all forces of darkness, for underneath Your feet is cringing the defeated serpent of deception, temptation, destruction and hate.
Oh Jesus, Your name so full of Love bears the destruction of all forces of darkness, for the soul that turns into a Cup for Your Blood is no longer a slave to the devil.
Oh Mary, Your most pure name puts all forces of darkness to shame, for You are the untouchable Mistress of all virtues.
Oh Jesus, Your name so full of hope disarms all forces of darkness, for to those who follow You by carrying their crosses with abandon, suffering is no longer a pointless torture, but a source of Salvation for many souls.
Oh Mary, Your name as sweet as lilies is the rage of all forces of darkness, for its holy sound anoints wounds, sets hearts of fire and converts souls.
Oh Jesus, Your powerful name is the defeat of all forces of darkness, for whoever pronounces it, opens up for themselves the sources of Eternal Light.
Oh Mary, Your name bearing Salvation is our last shield against all forces of darkness, for no soul that calls upon You will fall prey to them.
Oh my Redeemer and my Co-Redemptrix, yearning so much with Love for each human soul, let Your most sacred names burn inside my heart with inextinguishable desire, in order that my mouth may pour them out like a cathartic fire into the souls You are longing for so painfully.

♥ ♥ ♥

Even merely pronouncing the names of Jesus and Mary as such constitutes a prayer against evil and cleans heart and soul. Even for a nonbeliever who can be persuaded to pronounce the names 'Jesus' and 'Mary' in his dying hour, lovingly and confidently, this can bring the salvation of his or her soul.

194. PETITION TO LITTLE MARY

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Pride of the Eternal Father, may I approach You in Your childlike innocence, o crystal-clear Gem that was never removed from God’s Crown.
In You, oh Heavenly Child, all beauties of creation have been merged.
No source ever brought more blessings and fruits to the world than the stream of graces that has been pouring out of Your immaculate soul as of the hour of Your Conception.
Oh most holy child’s eyes, touch the most calloused hearts, break them open by the beams from the most ravishing soul that ever lived on this earth, and convert those who have closed their wounds for the healing balm of Love.
Let me hold Your Heart tight, oh holiest of all human beings, for has it not been yearning to beat inside of me since the beginning of time? For Your sake I cast off the person I used to be, for with You I want to be united, so that I may become just like You.
Help me find back the innocence of the child I have been losing along the path of my life.
Let me become one with Your soul, pure like a Heavenly diamond, with Your Heart, pure like a Heavenly flower, with Your mind, pure like the water from the springs of Paradise, and with Your body, pure like a Heavenly temple.
Help me feel small and dependent, for I long to be able to hide in Your little arms.
Let me look through Your enchanting eyes, so that I may be able to see the beauty of all things, for You have been able to fathom God’s holy intentions.
Pour out into me the joy from Your little Heart, which knows it is one with God, and even my tears will bring happiness to the world.
Clothe me with the virginal mind the Father blessed You with, so that not one single evil thought may ever be born inside of me.
Do shape within me the docility and the all-consuming Love of the holy Girl from Nazareth that said "yes" to a life of self-sacrifice for the benefit of mankind of all times.
Impress upon me the devotion of the soul that has remained stainless, and that has preserved very much alive the memory of her birth in God’s Springs.
Oh little Mary, elevated beyond reach, open up my heart to the very Divine Providence that enlightened all Your paths, so that my soul, too, may be called to enter into the highest bond with the Holy Spirit. Oh turn me into dust, in which the seeds of Your Flower can spring up, so that I, too, may become a source of delight in God’s eyes.

195. CONSECRATION TO MARY, SORROWFUL MOTHER

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Queen of martyrs, who have called me for the purpose of expiating the darkness of souls on the cross of life, to You I entrust all my sufferings, my pains, my torments, my sadness and my tears.
When I contemplate the sadness You endured for my benefit I long so much to join You in suffering for the salvation of Your children.
You see, I lay my desire in the Chalice of Your Sorrowful Heart, in order that it may be washed in Your tears and be sanctified in the Blood of Jesus.
I want to be Yours near the Cross on Golgotha, the forge in which the sins of the world are melted, so as to allow my lack of willingness to suffer to be consumed in the flames of celestial Love.
Oh bleeding Maternal Heart, pierced by the sword of Sorrows, what words from a child's mouth are able to close the wound inflicted on You by ages filled with hate? Here only the heart that has buried itself in Yours is able to speak.
Oh Mother of all pain, Your Sorrowful Heart is the Chalice in which resides the dew of grace, which You pour out on me like the baptismal water provided for the rebirth in the Light, so that I may see what I am suffering for.
In Your hands I lay myself with all that burdens me, so as to unite it with Your unfathomable Sorrows, for they have opened up the gates of Heaven for many.
In Your hands I lay all sufferings I have resisted, in order to envelop them in the veil of Your tears, for they have washed the windows of many souls clean so as to receive the Light from God's Spirit.
In Your hands I lay all sorrows God's Plan of Salvation provided for me, so that You may breathe the holy sound of Your word of consent over them, for Your voice called Redemption down upon the souls.
In Your hands I lay the way of the Cross which, upon Your intercession, I will be going in conformity with the tormented Jesus, for no blood which proceeded from sacred Wounds was ever offered to the Father as an expiatory sacrifice without having been merged with Your tears first.
In Your womb I lay my old 'me', which I have nailed to the Cross because it withheld so many sacrifices from You. Do carry it to the grave with Your own hands, so that on the third day it may show its wounds for the cleansing of souls at the Source of graces.

196. SUPPLICATION FOR THE RESURRECTION OF THE
CROSS OF REDEMPTION

(Myriam van Nazareth)

My Jesus, beloved Redeemer,
To worldly eyes Love has borne no fruits, and many souls have banned Your redemptive Cross from their hearts. Underneath the dust of the earth they have buried it, for its radiance had been putting all darkness to shame.
Come, oh Jesus, press the kiss of conciliation upon the human hearts, in order that their doors might melt open and they might embrace the Cross of Redemption.
Rise, oh Cross of Redemption, and all dust will fall so as to unveil blinded eyes.
Rise, oh Cross of Redemption, and no wind other than the wind of sanctification will ever blow again.
Rise, oh Cross of Redemption, Sun in the night, and flowers will bloom again inside the souls.
Rise, oh Cross of Redemption, and the burden of our worldly crosses will become light.
Rise, oh Cross of Redemption, and all tears will dry in the glow of Your Love's fire.
Rise, oh Cross of Redemption, so that the city of God may see that God has reconciled Himself with it.
Rise, oh Cross of Redemption, and Your shadow will dispel the forces of evil.
Rise, oh Cross of Redemption, rise again in all hearts, and all ghost lights will be extinguished.
Rise, oh Cross of Redemption, break through the sunset glow in desperate souls, in order that they may dare encounter the dawn of hope.
Rise, oh Cross of Redemption, and those who are wandering in the darkness will find their destination back.
Rise, oh Cross of Redemption, for your thirsty Beloved One is still waiting to be quenched.
Rise, oh Cross of Redemption, in order that the Christ may truly attract all souls.
Rise, oh Cross of Redemption, in order that the souls may again feel the beat of their Divine Savior's Heart.
Rise, oh Cross of Redemption, do no longer hide your eternal glory from the blind souls of this world, for no wall is going to block your Light, no rain is going to put out your fire, no soul is going to remain insensitive to the arms from which the Word of Redemption has risen up into Heaven.

197. INVOCATION TO THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Jesus,
God's Love created man free, yet man has abused his free will to turn away from God's Light and follow the darkness. Oh Son of God, do enlighten the souls, so that they may find back Eternal Light.

I acknowledge that You have risen from the dead and have thereby shown to the world that dying in a state of consecration to God is not an end, but the beginning of Eternal Life.
COME, JESUS, LIGHT OF THE WORLD, I implore the grace of an explosion of the Light of Divine Mysteries in the souls, in order that they may rise from the darkness of evil and sin.

198. PRAYER TO BE USED IN ADORATION

(Myriam van Nazareth)

My Triune God, in Your Presence I lay myself into the hands of Mary, the Pearl of Your creation, who was given to me as my Mother during the accomplishment of the great Mystery of Redemption.
May She immerse me in the Spring of Graces, and wrap Her cloak around my soul, so that the latter may be alone with You in purity.
My God, what can I say. What words do not detract from the holy glow inspiriting my heart?
Come, oh Lamb of God, I know You are here, closer than I dare dream of. Who is able to keep the delightful scent of Your Presence hidden from me?
In my heart the incense of praise is welling up from the fire of Love.
Before my eyes the curtain of ignorance is lifted upon the wings of Your Spirit, who is now letting the Light of faith shine upon me.
My ears can hear the chant of hope from Your soft voice which is embracing my entire being and is going to guide and encourage me on all my paths.
You have created me, You have prepared for me endless delights.
You have given me a life on earth to gain Heaven, You have accepted the Death on the Cross in order to welcome me in Your Kingdom. Now You are pouring Your Spirit out upon me, so that I may truly be a child of the Light.
Oh Triune God of Love, do accept here and now my longing to merge with You, as a supplication of reconciliation to release souls from the grasp of darkness.
Turn me into a holy tabernacle that is able to contain Your Presence, so that we may remain one.
Impress Your Face upon my heart so intensely that nothing may erase it ever again, so that I may see the point of my life on earth, and that my true vocation within Your Plan of Salvation for all eternity may be revealed to me, today and until the hour of my return to You.
Thank You, my God, I am allowed to worship You, because my soul was made by You.
I am able to worship You, because Mary is preparing me for the encounter with You in the Garden of Heavenly flowers.
I want to worship You, because my heart can not help loving You.
Be praised, oh Father, in Your creating Love which was cast into my heart as seed.
Be praised, oh Jesus, in Your redeeming Cross which will prepare for me Eternal Bliss.
Be praised, oh Holy Spirit, in the Wisdom and the Light that guide my soul, and in Mary, Your Spouse who has opened up the Garden of Her delights for me, in order that I might be Yours, my God, for all eternity.

199. PRAYER OF THANKS FOR THE REDEMPTIVE SUFFERINGS

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Jesus, Dear Mother Mary, my Saviour and my Co-Redemptrix,
In the Love proceeding from the Divine Mystery of Redemption Your pains and Sorrows, Your Blood and tears were blessed for me, in order that I may find the Truth and the Life. Thank You, for Your Redemptive Sufferings have shown me the way to the Life in Eternal Salvation for my fellow person and myself.
Oh Jesus, Your sweating Blood in the Garden of Gethsemane teaches me that sins over which I have no remorse or which I have not confessed help extinguish the Light in the world and make the night fall over my soul. Thank You, Jesus, my Redeemer.
Oh Jesus, Your scourging teaches me that the crown of glorification awaits those who sacrifice their bodies in sickness and pain for the Salvation of their sinful or unbelieving fellow person. Thank You, Jesus, my Redeemer.
Oh Jesus, Your being crowned with thorns teaches me that the gates of Heaven only open up for those who stay modest and humiliate themselves. Thank You, Jesus, my Redeemer.
Oh Jesus, the wound of Your shoulder teaches me that all my burdens borne with Love and surrender bring my fellow person to Eternal Salvation. Thank You, Jesus, my Redeemer.
Oh Jesus, Your three falls while carrying the Cross teach me that eternal glory awaits those who keep taking up their cross with courage, out of Love to God, to Mary and to their fellow persons. Thank You, Jesus, my Redeemer.
Oh Jesus, the wounds of Your hands teach me to prefer giving over asking, and to aspire for the selfless surrender of myself on the cross of life. Thank You, Jesus, my Redeemer.
Oh Jesus, the wounds of Your feet teach me to detach myself with increasing determination from worldly things and worldly thinking, because there is no such things as true happiness in this world. Thank You, Jesus, my Redeemer.
Oh Jesus, the wound of Your pierced side teaches me to open up my heart to pour out upon my fellow persons everything Divine Grace has been filling me with. Thank You, Jesus, my Redeemer.
Oh Mary, Your tears shed at the foot of the Cross fill my heart with remorse over the countless ways in which Jesus is tortured and crucified in the souls. Thank You, Mary, my Co-Redemptrix.
Oh perfect Mother, with the Cross as my silent witness, may I take Your hand in mine so as to unite my thanks with Your sanctified Love, so that the Mystery of Redemption may be praised for all eternity.

207. PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT TO OBTAIN
THE LIGHT OF CONVERSION

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Beloved Holy Spirit,
The Eternal Father rejoices so much over the glory He is going to give His children in the Kingdom of Eternity. Oh why do they not open their hands through a heart which believes, hopes and loves?
The pierced Heart of Jesus is so heavily tormented by the blindness which allows for the heirs of the New Covenant to bog down into the indifference and the swamp of spiritual perdition. Oh do shine Your Heavenly Light on the Cross, so that the sight of it may shape their hearts forever.
Oh Sanctifier, You long so ardently for hearts in which You are allowed to dwell permanently, in order that You may be able to guide them along the way of the Cross and through the sacred Garden of Your Heavenly Bride to the Well of Eternal Bliss.
Oh do come, Fire of conciliation and purification, do pour the Eternal God's flame of life into the hearts so as to singe everything which is devoid of Love.
I implore for those who do not believe in Eternal Life in Heaven and thereby ban God from their lives.
I implore for those who do not hope for Eternal Life in Heaven and thereby fail to accept the gift of God's glories.
I implore for those who do not love God and thereby shut themselves off from His Love.
Do purify the eyes by the beams of Your Divine Light, in order that they may find the only right way and leave the darkness behind.
Do purify the ears by the balm of Your eternal Word, in order that they may open up to the sweet sounds of the Gospel and refer the thundering voice of evil to the abyss.
Do purify the hearts by the fire of Your Heavenly Love, in order that they may feel how transient the warmth of worldly temptations is.
Do purify the spirits by the inspirations from Your Eternal Wisdom, in order that they may understand that the world is leading them away from the only Truth.
Do purify the bodies by the desire for the most sublime purity, in order that they may become worthy of being a temple of the immaculate Virgin Mary, in which all sinful tendencies are crucified with the nails of grace.
Come, oh Holy Spirit, do pour the Light of conversion into the souls, in order that they may forever turn to the Source of Light, from which they were once created.

210. PRAYER OF UNITY WITH JESUS IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE

(highly recommended to be prayed every Thursday night – commemorating the sufferings in the Garden of Olives can obtain the soul many graces)

(Myriam van Nazareth)

My Jesus,
Because my soul no longer recognizes the greyness of her own garment, You defied the night of Gethsemane, in order that Your last sunrise on earth might find You as the Light of the world.
How oppressing is Your loneliness, for so few are going to follow You on the way of the Cross.
In heartbreaking sadness my heart meets Yours, for but very few will honour Your spiritual legacy.
Oh mankind, dark as the nocturnal blanket over Gethsemane, why are you ignoring the Moon that greets Your unworthiness with such great Mercy?
Oh my Saviour, my countless negligences have made the cup so bitter, yet it must not pass You by, for if it does, all human beings will be damned forever.
Why are You giving Your kiss of prayer to the soil that is poisoned by the sins of all time?
Oh my eyes, behold your suffering God, and wash Him in your tears, for it is due to your impurity that He is letting Himself be defiled.
Oh my feet, why are you following the path of worldly temptations? Why are you waiting for the midday sun to walk in His traces towards the Cross of Salvation?
My Jesus, I can see You longing to empty the cup of my sins to the bottom and to fill it with Your Blood of Love and Redemption.
I can see You sweating Blood under the burden of my darkness.
Where has the Love gone, in which the Father has soaked the souls? Countless souls are going to betray the God of Love by the kiss of hate.
Oh icecold night of the most burning Love, what is keeping the liberating dawn of the embrace with the Wood of Redemption from coming?
Come, oh Jesus, let me unite all my fears, my sadness, my loneliness and all my heartaches about the sins of the world with Yours, so that the new dawn may also set Your Heart free.

213. INVOCATION TO THE ETERNAL FATHER TO OBTAIN STRENGTH

215. OFFERING TO MARY, MEDIATRIX OF ALL GRACES

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary, to whom God has given power over His Sources of all good things, see me appear at Your feet like a beggar of Love, imploring Your intermediary for the salvation of souls through the sacrifice of my burdens.
Let the beams of God’s goodness pour down upon my erring fellow man, in order that God’s Heart may receive the souls for whose benefit it was pierced on the Cross.
Oh powerful Mediatrix of all graces,
I give You each moment of being hungry, so that Jesus may be satisfied by the souls He suffered so much for.
I give You each moment of being thirsty, so that Jesus may be refreshed by the Love from the souls that left Him behind on the Cross all parched.
I give You each moment of pain, so that Jesus‘ Wounds may be embalmed with the conversion of souls who do not yet know what they are doing.
I give You each moment of being ill, so that Jesus‘ Body, tormented to death, may be glorified in another Resurrection in healed souls.
I give You each moment of fatigue, so that Jesus may rise within souls under the burden of the cross of sin, for the establishment of the kingdom of hope.
I give You each moment of discouragement, so that Jesus, so afflicted in the Garden of Gethsemane, may find strength in a cup of new blood from ardent souls.
I give You all of my mortifications, all my acts of self-denial and atonement, so that Jesus may taste the richness of the crown of those souls who have complied with the grace bestowed upon them.
Come, oh Mary, golden key to the treasure chest of God’s graces, receive the consecration of all my moments of suffering and hardship, so that in Your hands they may be turned into the precious stones which will dispel poverty from the souls.

♥ ♥ ♥

As the Mediatrix of all Graces Mary pours infinitely great treasures out into the souls. These treasures are paid for by your persistent prayers and by the sacrifices and prayers offered by all Christians. From the souls consecrated to Her, above all Mary expects sacrifices and prayers. The greatest offering we can ever give Her as a 'payment' for graces for the benefit of our fellow man is the consecration of our entire being and our entire life with all trials and burdens.

217. PETITION FOR THE SOULS TO MARY, THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Resplendent Queen in the glory of eternal purity,
Full of confidence in the voice of Her who has preserved the utmost Purity as of Her Immaculate Conception until Her glorious Assumption into Heaven, I am begging for Your infallible Intercession with the Lamb of God for the healing and salvation of all souls that are stained and spiritually ill.

In order to save each human soul from the swamp of sin which is killing her, the Lamb of God has let Himself be offered up through Your hands to accomplish His Sacrifice on the Cross on Mount Calvary.
O Mary, Immaculate Heavenly Lily, Sorrowful Co-Redemptrix of all mankind, do wash all souls in the redeeming Blood of Jesus.

In order to liberate each human soul from the supremacy of Satan who is trying to lead her to the realm of eternal torment and hatred, the Lamb of God is still letting Himself be offered daily on every altar through Your hands.
O Mary, Immaculate Heavenly Lily, Sorrowful Co-Redemptrix of all mankind, do wash all souls in the redeeming Blood of Jesus.

In order to open up the eyes of every human soul to the destructions wrought by evil, and to open up the hearts to the promises of Eternal Bliss and perfect Love in Christ, the Lamb of God is longing for the offering of our prayers through Your hands.
O Mary, Immaculate Heavenly Lily, Sorrowful Co-Redemptrix of all mankind, do wash all souls in the redeeming Blood of Jesus.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, purest of flowers, sublime Delight of Paradise, let Your Light of stainless sanctity beam into the souls, that they may be receptive to the Precious Blood of the Lamb.
Through Your hands I offer all erring souls up for the ultimate purification which will deliver them from the dominion of evil, so they may be ready for the marriage of unity with Jesus Christ, for which they are destined for all times.

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
Mediatrix of all graces, perfect Moon that sends the radiant beams of the sun of God’s graces through the darkness of the souls, in Your anointing hands I lay all sinners, so that, under your cloak of protection and sanctification, they may find the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Oh Immaculate Conception, fragrant Lily, Cup of the perfume of Divine purity in which all repentant souls can be cleaned, lead us, sinners, to the source of Your purity.
Oh Co-Redemptrix, burning Rose of Mount Calvary, ignited by the burning Cross of the God of Love which burns away all sins from repentant souls, lead us, sinners, to the source of Your Love.
Oh Terror of the demons, most sacred Flower, free of all sin, Heavenly Mistress who makes Satan Her slave and chases him away from all repentant souls, impress upon us, sinners, Your abhorrence against all sin.
Oh Mistress of all virtues, whose holy name tortures all demons and in whom all repentant souls find new strength to live, lead us, sinners, to the source of Your desire to do penance, which is the germ from which flowers of sanctity spring.
Oh Most Holy Virgin, Pearl of God’s creation, immaculate Bride of the Holy Spirit, who sacrificed Yourself for a life of perfect consecration to the Cross of Redemption, lead us, sinners, to the source of Your detachment from the world.
Oh Mother of Sorrows, Source of holy tears at the foot of the Cross of Your Divine Son, anoint with Your tears all souls in whom remorse, shame and penance have been aroused, so that they may find in You the source of their comfort and their true conversion.
Oh Mary, Refuge of sinners, in You are unlimited power and tender maternal Love. At Your feet I lay down all souls. Do purify them in the fire of Divine Love, and immerse them in the flow of Divine Mercy, so that they may all be saved.

OF THE MYSTERY OF REDEMPTION

(Supplication to obtain conversions and the salvation of souls)

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Beloved Eternal Father,
By virtue of the Sufferings of Jesus and Your New Covenant with the souls, and by the intercession of Mary, Your chosen Daughter whom You could never refuse anything, I implore for the salvation of the souls who fail to reciprocate Your Love.

Do blind all evil in the Light from His Cross – Oh Mary, do humiliate Satan underneath Your feet. Through Your powerful Intercession, do save the souls he is deceiving day after day.

On account of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ from the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, who gave the Messiah the body through which our slavery towards sin was expiated (...)
On account of the agony of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, where the expiation of all temptation began and all and any discouragement and emotional sufferings of mankind were sanctified (...)
On account of the Wounds from the scourging and from all the blows dealt to Jesus, because they allowed for everything which binds man to the world and separated him from God, to be broken (...)
On account of the Wounds of Jesus' Head crowned with thorns, for they started the expiation of all arrogance and self-exaltation, and the sanctification of all moral sufferings of mankind (...)
On account of the deep Wound of Jesus' shoulder, on which He carried the burden of our sins (...)
On account of the Wounds of Jesus' pierced hands, with which He cleansed and forgave the sins (...)
On account of the Wounds of Jesus' pierced feet, with which He went to the sinners (...)

Do allow Your most sacred Light to shine through my soul in order that, nourished by the Blood which once shaped Jesus, she may welcome the light of dawn as a mirror of Yourself.

226. OUTCRY TO MARY FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE FALLING SOULS

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Mother Mary,
God's last Resort for souls gone astray.
Trusting in Your ardent maternal Love and by virtue of Your power as the Queen of Heaven and earth I implore Your infallible intermediary with the God of Eternal Salvation to help stand up the countless souls who are falling under the cunning temptations and deceptions by Satan.
Behold the souls, created by God as pearls yet robbed of their sparkle by the mud of worldly influences. They need food, for the fever of temptation has weakened them. Do pour the redeeming Blood of Christ out upon them, in order that the strength of God may come upon them.
They need Light, for the darkness of deception has made them lose the way to true happiness. Do erect the Cross of Christ in their hearts, in order that God's Light may shine inside of them.
They need warmth, for the coldness of all lack of Love has locked their doors to God and to their fellow creatures. Do call the inspiring fire of the Holy Spirit down upon them, in order that they may become inflamed with the purest Love.
They need cleansing, for the poison of sin has made them ill and defiled them. Do pour Your holy maternal tears out into their hearts, in order that all and any traces of sin and impurity may be washed from them.
They need rest, for the endless pursuit of worldly needs has exhausted them. Do lead them to the holy Sacraments, in order that they may ingest God's sacred gifts, and celestial Peace may be bestowed upon them.
They need protection, for the sharp thorns of evil intend to maim them for eternity. Do obtain for them the desire to consecrate themselves to Your Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, in order that, under Your cloak, they may be healed from the injuries deception has inflicted upon them.
On their behalf I offer You their free will, for the darkness in their souls has blurred their judgment. Deign henceforth to be the Star who guides them in everything.
Oh Mary, Heavenly Shield of our vulnerable soul, Flower of purification and redeeming Love, Mediatrix of everything that is good, do pour graces of deliverance out into this valley of tears, in order that the souls may blossom in eternal bliss.

229. CONSECRATION TO MARY THROUGH THE HANDS
OF MY GUARDIAN ANGEL

(Myriam van Nazareth)

My holy guardian angel,
Do administer to my needs, as I long so much to be consecrated by you to your Queen in Heaven.
Bestow upon my soul the purity of the angels, as I long to be laid down at Her feet like a crystal from the waters of Heaven.
Bestow upon my heart the joy of the angels, as I long to love Her with the fire of the seraphim, who behold Her glorified Being.
Arouse within me the angels’ devotion, as I long to sing to Her the songs of praise sung by the angelic choirs.
Free my eyes from worldly stains, so that my heart may experience the Presence of Her, who is the angels’ sublime delight.
O Mary, Mistress of the angels, see me appearing before you in the light of my eternal companion, to glorify You through my purity, to love You with all my heart, to serve You through my devotion, to behold You with the virginal eyes of the soul that does not allow any inner urge but Heavenly Love, and to be Yours the way he is: completely, reliably, humbly, and for all eternity.

236. PRAYER TO THE APOSTLE SAINT JOHN TO OPEN CLOSED HEARTS

(Myriam van Nazareth)

Dear Saint John, Apostle of Love,
Heartbroken I come knocking at the door of your heart, in which the most holy fire of Jesus’ and Mary’s Love will never go out.
In your heart I lay the heart of stone of my fellow man/woman ...... (name), who gives me so much pain and sorrow. Do light within him/her the fire of Mount Calvary, which put all hate, coldness and indifference to shame.
Your Love made you worthy of hearing the Heart of Jesus beat while you were resting at His breast.
Your purity made you worthy, while standing under the Cross, of receiving Mary in your care, the most pure Pearl of Love and sanctity God has ever entrusted to this world.
Your humble simplicity made you worthy of standing side by side with our sublime Co-Redemptrix Mary while Jesus was accomplishing the Redemption of mankind on the Cross of Heavenly Love.
Your childlike sincerity made you worthy of being chosen by the Holy Spirit to leave the Word of Eternal Life to God’s ignorant children.
Oh witness of the incarnated Fire of God, through you the Queen of Love became my Mother. Your heart was consumed while beholding the greatest Mystery of Love that was implemented on the Cross before your privileged eyes.
May your ardent intercession break open the heart of my fellow man/woman, who has got bogged down in the love of his/her own interests.
Oh John, my beloved brother in Heaven, your hands have touched Jesus and Mary. Do now on Their behalf embrace the soul I am entrusting to you, so that the Light may also shine in his/her darkness, in the glow of your ardent Love.

♥ ♥ ♥

The Apostle Saint John is a special guide to sanctity. He was a model of purity and Love, and together with the Most Holy Virgin and with Saint Mary Magdalene he was the crown witness of Jesus’ redeeming Sufferings on Mount Golgotha. Very much to his credit was his childlike state of mind: He was intelligent, yet uncomplicated and very modest, just like God expects every Christian to be, and like He especially expects from every soul that is called upon to follow Jesus and Mary in a special way.

Oh Mary, my beloved Mother of Sorrows, laden with my burden I take recourse to Your Heart to find rest.
Oh Mother of Jesus, You were born for my Salvation. You lived for my eternal Bliss, for You have given me Jesus, who died on the Cross to rescue my soul from perdition, for the original sin had barred me from Heaven.
No Sorrow was spared You for me to obtain eternal Bliss.

Carrying the Light of the world, the Source of all Bliss, on Your arms, You heard predict that Your Heart was to be pierced by a Sword of Sorrows.
Similar to Your Sorrowful Heart, my heart, too, is now bleeding, as my fellow man has hurt me.
Therefore I consecrate to You my heart and all my afflictions, in order that my emotional life may be under your control.
Filled with gratitude and innocent Love I come and lay my own pains, worries and grief down at Your feet, so that they may be offered to God through Your blessed hands as a sacred sacrifice to obtain an outpouring of graces for the souls that are so dear to me, as well as for those who cause me this grief and pain.
Oh Mary, Mother of Sorrows, I love You so dearly. Teach me how to always bear my sufferings together with You.
Do enhance my willingness to deny myself for the benefit of my fellow man.

As a young Mother You had to witness little Jesus, Your dearest Treasure, being threatened by heathens and ignorants, leaving You no option but to leave everything behind so as to save His life.

That is why I entrust my happiness to the shelter of Your loving Mother’s Heart, so that You may preserve it for me until my entry into the Kingdom of Heaven, where no sorrows and no evil survive.

As a Mother Your were troubled by worries over Your Son, who was hated by so many. You suffered so much by the criticism from people who failed to understand Jesus’ Mission. Yet You remained unshaken, because You held on to what God expected from You, and not to words spoken by man.
That is why I consecrate to You all people who are slandering, mocking or hating their fellow men, in order that the former may be converted by the Love from Your Sorrowful Heart.
Oh Mary, Mother of Sorrows, I love You so dearly. Teach me how to always bear my sufferings together with You.

You had to witness Jesus, the Embodiment of innocence, Your own flesh and blood, being sentenced to death and being driven to the Mountain of our Redemption under the severest physical abuse.
With the Cross He carried the burden of all sins committed by others.
That is why I entrust to Your Mother’s Heart the burden the world is laying on my shoulders and which is wearing me down emotionally, mentally and physically.
I consecrate to You all souls who pass judgment on others, condemn their fellow men or do them injustice.
Oh Mary, Mother of Sorrows, I love You so dearly. Teach me how to always bear my sufferings together with You.

No Sorrow was spared You for me to obtain eternal Bliss.

By the Cross You had to witness Your Child, in His unparalleled innocence, suffering a gruesome death for the Salvation of all people.
Oh my Co-Redemptrix, how can I ever repay You for so much Love. My sins deprived You of Your Child, and yet You gave up everything for me, and even accepted to be my Mother.
That is why I am pleading with You to let Your Tears of Mount Calvary flow over all human hearts that are closed and cold.
I consecrate to You all sorrows of the world caused by lack of Love, and entrust to Your Heart all people who no longer have a mother or who have no longer got a bond of Love with their mothers.
Oh Mary, Mother of Sorrows, I love You so dearly. Teach me how to always bear my sufferings together with You.

6th day – Jesus is taken down from the Cross

Oh Mary, my beloved Mother of Sorrows, laden with my burden I take recourse to Your Heart to find rest.

No Sorrow was spared You for me to obtain eternal Bliss.

Right after Jesus’ Heart had been pierced by the spear Your own Heart broke upon seeing Your Child having been so disfigured on account of the sins of the world. With so much Love and care You washed the Sacred Wounds of Jesus laid down lifeless in Your lap.
That is why I consecrate to You all hearts and souls the world has wounded beyond recognition, so much so that they no longer believe in the Light, and the warmth of the eternal Sun no longer seems to reach them.
Do let them, too, rest in Your Mother’s lap. Do cleanse their wounds, and wrap Your cloak around them, so they may again be able to believe in God’s Love.
Oh Mary, Mother of Sorrows, I love You so dearly. Teach me how to always bear my sufferings together with You.
Do enhance my willingness to take pity on hearts that are hurt and souls that are suffering from the aftermath of sin, and open my eyes to the wounds which sin causes to the souls.

Oh Mother of Jesus, You were born for my Salvation. You lived for my eternal Bliss, for You have given me Jesus, who died on the Cross to rescue my soul from perdition, for the original sin had barred me from Heaven.
No Sorrow was spared You for me to obtain eternal Bliss.

Sorrowful Mother, You have entrusted the unspeakable Sorrows, pains and worries of Your entire being to the Tomb along with the sacrificed Body of Christ, so that I may live forever.
For sinful souls to be rescued You had to endure Your Child’s Body to be surrendered to the greatest injustice this world has ever witnessed, and that You, who were completely unstained, were torn along with Him so as to expiate the deepest darkness which had been keeping the souls captive.
That is why I consecrate to You all people who are suffering from severe trauma, or who are unhappy because of mistakes made by others.
Oh Mary, Mother of Sorrows, I love You so dearly. Teach me how to always bear my sufferings together with You.
Help me acquire an unwavering faith in Eternal Life, and enhance my hope for the Resurrection of Jesus within my own soul, so that He and You may both live inside of me.

No Sorrow was spared You for me to obtain eternal Bliss.

Oh broken Mother, I can see You suffering so deeply within the confines of Your Heart. You gave up Your Child to God for the Salvation of souls. I can see You suffering in the loneliness of the Heart that has lost everything which mattered in this world. Yet Your soul remains in God’s Light, because she has fully surrendered to God in faith and Love.
That is why I consecrate to You all people who have got to deal with some severe loss, so that they, too, may deep inside of them feel the inner certainty that life and death are controlled by God for the well-being of every soul and of creation as a whole.
Oh Mary, Mother of Sorrows, I love You so dearly. Teach me how to always bear my sufferings together with You.

In the eternal glory of Heaven the Tears of Your deepest compassion with human sufferings keep nourishing the flow of graces. As long as sin exists there will be pain and sadness. That is why You are our eternal Mother of Sorrows.

Oh Mary, Mother of Sorrows, I love You so dearly. Teach me how to always bear my sufferings together with You.
Do enhance my willingness to pray deeply and ardently for the Salvation of souls, and my gratitude for all the Sorrows You endured and keep enduring for us day after day.

GENERAL CONCLUDING PRAYER after the 9th day

Oh Mary, Mother of Sorrows and Co-Redemptrix, ever since Mount Calvary Your tormented Mother’s Heart comprises all human souls of all times with all of their physical, emotional and mental sufferings. Your Tears are like pearls to the souls, graceful gems opening up the treasuries of Heaven. May all those who are suffering become aware of their bond with You, which Jesus Himself established as He was suffering on the Cross.
I consecrate to You all Your children who are haunted by illness, sorrows and setbacks, so that they may, in a disposition of surrender, become co-redeemers with You by the Cross, in glorification of Your Sorrowful Heart, for the Salvation of the world and the upliftment of their own souls.
I give You all the tears I myself have shed in the course of my life, as a consolation and as pearls to compensate some of Your sadness on account of my sins, faults and omissions.
Unite me with You completely, so that my heart may understand that the sorrows suffered on earth are the seeds yielding flowers of celestial joy.

The Sacrifice of Jesus was perfectly complemented (completed) by the Sorrows of His Mother Mary. Mary intensely experienced all Sufferings of Jesus in Her mind and Heart, and is therefore called the Co-Redemptrix. In a similar way God expects every man and woman to accept their own sorrows and pains (to take up their own crosses day after day) so as to be able to add them to the Sacrifice of Redemption made by Jesus and Mary: mankind keeps committing sins, and impurity grows ever more rampant in this world. This makes an unremitting expiation necessary so as to maintain the flow of Divine graces towards the souls (without expiation mankind would again fall into disgrace with God).
Since all of the Sufferings endured by Jesus and Mary served the accomplishment of God’s Plan of Redemption every commemoration of them (in the form of prayers or contemplations related to the Sufferings) is a bearer of great power. A prayer through which the praying soul unites with the redeeming Sufferings turns this praying soul into a little co-redeemer, thereby helping to reconcile God with mankind. A prayer in commemoration of the redeeming Sufferings is tantamount to an act of Love for Jesus and Mary. This is why many graces are bestowed upon such prayers. They awaken Divine Mercy and forgiveness.
This is where the tremendous power of this novena to the Mother of Sorrows lies. For nine days consecutively you unite your own sufferings with Mary’s. In so doing you share your sufferings with Her. You are doing so quite rightly, as She is Your Heavenly Mother as well as the Co-Redemptrix, who helped redeem you through the tremendous afflictions of Her own Heart. This is one of the reasons why each day of this novena is concluded with praying the Stabat Mater Dolorosa, which is so dear to Mary.
Even among the Christians but few are aware of the immense power of suffering which is accepted in Love and without any objections, and is offered up (consecrated) to Mary. Firstly, in so doing, one’s own sufferings are alleviated, and secondly many graces are released, which may help other people come to terms with their trials and may help convert many souls because they, too, begin to understand the purpose and sense of their sufferings and may in their turn even begin to consecrate themselves. This is how prayers such as the present novena may become means for the development of a chain of Love consisting of suffering people who, by consecrating their sufferings, help deliver the world from evil.

STABAT MATER DOLOROSA

(very powerful 13th century prayer)

At the Cross her station keeping,
stood the mournful Mother weeping,
close to her Son to the last.

Through her heart, His sorrow sharing,
all His bitter anguish bearing,
now at length the sword has passed.

O how sad and sore distressed
was that Mother, highly blest,
of the sole-begotten One.

Christ above in torment hangs,
she beneath beholds the pangs
of her dying glorious Son.

Is there one who would not weep,
whelmed in miseries so deep,
Christ's dear Mother to behold?

Can the human heart refrain
from partaking in her pain,
in that Mother's pain untold?

For the sins of His own nation,
She saw Jesus wracked with torment,
All with scourges rent:

She beheld her tender Child,
Saw Him hang in desolation,
Till His spirit forth He sent.

O thou Mother! fount of love!
Touch my spirit from above,
make my heart with thine accord:

Make me feel as thou hast felt;
make my soul to glow and melt
with the love of Christ my Lord.

Holy Mother! pierce me through,
in my heart each wound renew
of my Savior crucified:

Let me share with thee His pain,
who for all my sins was slain,
who for me in torments died.

Let me mingle tears with thee,
mourning Him who mourned for me,
all the days that I may live:

By the Cross with thee to stay,
there with thee to weep and pray,
is all I ask of thee to give.

Virgin of all virgins blest!,
Listen to my fond request:
let me share thy grief divine;

Let me, to my latest breath,
in my body bear the death
of that dying Son of thine.

Wounded with His every wound,
steep my soul till it hath swooned,
in His very Blood away;

Be to me, O Virgin, nigh,
lest in flames I burn and die,
in His awful Judgment Day.

Christ, when Thou shalt call me hence,
be Thy Mother my defense,
be Thy Cross my victory;

While my body here decays,
may my soul Thy goodness praise,
Safe in Paradise with Thee.
