Marian Consecration to Our Lady of the Cape, Queen of the Holy Rosary

Our Lady of the Cape, Queen of the Holy Rosary,
Queen of Canada; I offer and give my prayers,
sacrifices, good works, time,
talent and treasure to your Immaculate Heart,
to do with as you please, for the greater glory of God.
I thank God the Father, for choosing you
to be my heavenly Mother. I thank God the Son,
for giving you to me as He was dying for my sins
and those of the whole world on the cross.
I thank God the Holy Spirit,
for the graces He gives me through you.
Help me, by your prayers, to be faithful
to the vows of my Baptism.
Help me, by your prayers, to accomplish
all that God has planned for me in advance to do. Amen. 
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be to the Father…

(Personal intention for deeper conversion)

St. John Bosco - " ...Only two things can save us in such a grave hour: devotion to Mary and frequent Communion. Let us do our very best to use these two means and have others use them everywhere."

 

O Saint John Bosco, you loved the Blessed Virgin, Mary Immaculate Help of Christians, taking her as your Mother and Guide, and becoming her apostle.  Pray for us that, inspired by your example, we may grow in true and enduring love for this sweetest of mothers, and may thus win her powerful protection in life and especially at the hour of our death.

Through your intercession may God grant me the grace of deeper conversion so that together with others I may assist in bringing young people to the love of Mary Our Help. May you, who on earth had such great devotion to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and to Mary Help of Christians, and who always had compassion for those who were suffering, obtain from Jesus and His Heavenly Mother the grace I now request, and also a sincere resignation to the Will of God.

Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be to the Father…

(Communal intention for the conversion of Canada)

Blessed Frederic Janssoone - First Pilgrimage Director at Our Lady of the Cape, Witness to the Prodigy of the Eyes and processed the crown in 1904

 

Almighty and eternal God,
You granted to Blessed Frederic Janssoone,
son of France,
to follow the footsteps of your Son Jesus
in the Holy Land, and to work there for peace.

Then You led him to Canada,
to invite that nation
to be generous toward the Holy Land,
to found the Sanctuary of the Cap-de-la-Madeleine,
and to better make known
the life of Jesus of Nazareth and His most holy Mother.

Grant us to become in turn, true pilgrims,
and veritable missionaries of your Church.
That we also may be equally
solid pillars of the faith in our Christian communities.

Grant us, through his intercession,
the favor that we ask… the conversion of Canada.

Grant this son of Saint Francis of Assisi,
to be canonized soon,
and to draw us all toward Your Son
Jesus, Our Lord. Amen.

Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be to the Father…

AUGUST 4TH - AUGUST 12TH

(Personal intention)

Pope St. Pius X - Authorized Canonical Crowning of Our Lady of the Cape on October 12, 1904

Glorious Pope of the Eucharist, St. Pius X,
you sought to restore all things in Christ.
Obtain for me a true love of Jesus
so that I may live only for him.
Help me to acquire a lively fervor
and a sincere will to strive for sanctity of life,
and that I may avail myself
of the riches of the Holy Eucharist in sacrifice and sacrament.
By your love for Mary, Mother and Queen of all,
inflame my heart with tender devotion to her.
Blessed model of the priesthood,
obtain for us holy, dedicated priests,
and increase vocations to the religious life.
Dispel confusion and hatred and anxiety,
and incline our hearts to peace and concord,
so that all nations will place themselves
under the sweet reign of Christ. Amen.

[Mention your intention here...].

Saint Pius X, Pray for us.
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be to the Father…

Our Lady of the Cape, Queen of Canada

O Holy Virgin Mary, our most merciful Mother, we your children humbly prostrate before you, implore your grace and help.

With confidence we come to you, O Queen of the Holy Rosary; to you do we turn our eyes. Bestow on us, we beg you, the special favour of the healing of our country, Canada.

Grant us health of body and purity of soul; increase our faith and love so that we may know your divine Son better and serve Him ever faithfully.

O tender and merciful Mother, intercede for those who are dear to us. Heal the sick, comfort the dying and have pity on the faithful departed.

Protect our families; guard our country; and keep holy Mother Church safe from all evil. 

Our Lady of the Cape, Queen of Canada, may we love you more and more, so that one day united with you in heaven, we may praise your Son eternally. Amen.

Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be to the Father…
