Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus (bilingual)

/// Tonight, on the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, during Adoration of our Eucharistic King, we will recite the Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus as well as the Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in both English and Spanish. Here are those consecrations below. I include them here, because we are going to be using the increasingly hard to find older form, politically incorrect as it may be. :-) ///


Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Pope Pius XI)

Most sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us, humbly prostrate before Thine altar. We are Thine and Thine we wish to be; but to be more surely united with Thee, behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today to Thy Most Sacred Heart.

Many, indeed, have never known Thee; many, too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy Sacred Heart.

Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee, grant that they may quickly return to their Father’s house, lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.

Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof and call them back to the harbour of truth and unity of faith, so that soon there may be but one flock and one shepherd.

Be Thou King of all those who even now sit in the shadow of idolatry or Islam, and refuse not Thou to bring them into the light of Thy kingdom. Look, finally, with eyes of pity upon the children of that race, which was for so long a time Thy chosen people; and let Thy Blood, which was once invoked upon them in vengeance, now descend upon them also in a cleansing flood of redemption and eternal life.

Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church, assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: Praise to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation: to it be glory and honour forever. Amen.


Consagración del género humano al Sagrado Corazón de Jesús (Papa Pío XI)

Dulcísimo Jesús, Redentor del género humano, miradnos humildemente postrados delante de vuestro altar: vuestros somos y vuestros queremos ser; y a fin de poder vivir más estrechamente unidos con Vos, todos y cada uno espontáneamente nos consagramos en este día a vuestro Sacratísimo Corazón.

Muchos, por desgracia, jamás os han conocido; muchos, despreciando vuestros mandamientos, os han desechado. ¡Oh Jesús benignísimo!, compadeceos de los unos y de los otros y atraedlos a todos a vuestro Corazón Santísimo.

Oh Señor, sed Rey, no sólo de los hijos fieles que jamás se han alejado de Vos, sino también de los pródigos que os han abandonado: haced que vuelvan pronto a la casa paterna, para que no perezcan de hambre y de miseria.

Sed Rey de aquellos que, por seducción del error o por espíritu de discordia, viven separados de Vos: devolvedlos al puerto de la verdad y a la unidad de la fe, para que en breve se forme un solo rebaño bajo un solo Pastor.

Sed Rey de los que permanecen todavía envueltos en las tinieblas de la idolatría o del islamismo; dignaos atraerlos a todos a la luz de vuestro reino. Mirad finalmente con ojos de misericordia a los hijos de aquel pueblo que en otro tiempo fue vuestro predilecto; descienda también sobre ellos, bautismo de redención y de vida, la Sangre que un día contra sí reclamaron.

Conceded, oh Señor, incolumidad y libertad segura a vuestra Iglesia; otorgad a todos los pueblos la tranquilidad en el orden; haced que del uno al otro confin de la tierra no resuene sino esta voz: Alabado sea el Corazón divino, causa de nuestra salud; a El se entonen cánticos de honor y de gloria por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.
