Act of Consecration to St. Francis of Assisi

Dear Franciscan Tertiaries,


Here is a prayer that you can say daily to consecrate yourselves to the Seraphic Father.


Seraphic Patriarch St. Francis. So like unto Jesus, even from thy birth, in thy being born in a stable, and like him, laid in a manger. So like unto Jesus during thy lifetime, in thy burning zeal for souls. So like unto Jesus at thy death, having thy hands and thy feet pierced with nails and thy side opened as with a lance.


O favourite of the Sacred Heart of Jesus! So inflamed with His sweet and gentle, yet burning spirit of Divine Love. I, N., consecrate myself to thee, praying thee to obtain from God for me – even as thou wert wont to pray – the most sweet and ardent gift of His Divine Love, that my heart’s affections and my whole soul may be detached from every creature and thus be united to Him in time and eternity. Amen. My God and my All.
