Attendance at Cenacle Rosary Prayer Group
Today, I was with my prayer group praying the Cenacle Rosary, for the First Saturday devotions. We first prayed the Divine Mercy Chaplet, we then consecrated ourselves, our families and the world to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. This was followed by the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
For the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary I remained on my knees while most the others present decided to say the Consecration prayer sitting down.
As we started to pray the Consecration prayer, immediately Blessed Mother appeared. She was smiling and said, “I am sorry my children, but I must remind you, and tell your friends this, that you must all kneel down, always, because I am present with my open Heart, and so is my Son.”
Blessed Mother looked so beautiful, dressed in a white tunic and covered with a blue mantle. Our Lord Jesus was also standing there beside His Mother, and was dressed in a white robe with a beautiful red sash draped over His shoulder.
Blessed Mother said, “With an open heart we receive your Consecration. That means that you promise that you belong to Us. It is an act of humility that you kneel in the presence of my Son and me.”
As she was saying this, she opened her arms to reveal her Immaculate Heart and to accept and receive our Act of Consecration. Our Lord, standing beside His Mother, with open arms was revealing His Sacred Heart.
She said, “Your Act of Consecration goes through My Immaculate Heart and into the Sacred Heart of my Son Jesus. My Son receives you so beautifully and He is so overjoyed watching you promise yourselves to Him. He is very joyful and happy, and He blesses you all in a very special way.”
Blessed Mother desires that we always kneel during the act of Consecration prayers. I then told my friends at the prayer group, what Blessed Mother had just said to me.
I said, “I am sorry but Blessed Mother said that we must all kneel because she is truly present.”
Suddenly they all went down on their knees and were very joyful to hear this message from our Blessed Mother.
Below is the prayer of the Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary:
Act of Consecration -To the Immaculate Heart of Mary – For Religious & Laity
Virgin of Fatima, Mother of Mercy, Queen of Heaven and Earth, Refuge of Sinners, we who belong to the Marian Movement consecrate ourselves in a very special way to your Immaculate Heart.
By this act of consecration we intend to live, with you and through you, all the obligations assumed by our baptismal consecration. We further pledge to bring about in ourselves that interior conversion so urgently demanded by the Gospel, a conversion that will free us of every attachment to ourselves and to easy compromises with the world so that, like you, we may be available only to do always the Will of the Father.
And as we resolve to entrust to you, O Mother most sweet and merciful, our life and vocation as Christians, that you may dispose of it according to your designs of salvation in this hour of decision that weighs upon the world, we pledge to live it according to your desires, especially as it pertains to a renewed spirit of prayer and penance, the fervent participation in the celebration of the Eucharist and in the works of the apostolate, the daily recitation of the holy rosary, and an austere manner of life in keeping with the Gospel, that shall be to all a good example of the observance of the Law of God and the practice of the Christian virtues, especially that of purity.
We further promise you to be united with the Holy Father, with the hierarchy and with our priests, in order thus to set up a barrier to the growing confrontation directed against the Magisterium, that threatens the very foundation of the Church.
Under your protection, we want moreover to be apostles of this sorely needed unity of prayer and love for the Pope, on whom we invoke your special protection. And lastly, insofar as is possible, we promise to lead those souls with whom we come in contact to a renewed devotion to you.
Mindful that atheism has caused shipwreck in the faith to a great number of the faithful, that desecration has entered into the holy temple of God, and that evil and sin are spreading more and more throughout the world, we make so bold as to lift our eyes trustingly to you, O Mother of Jesus and our merciful and powerful Mother, and we invoke again today and await from you the salvation of all your children, O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
