Marian Consecration

Prayer for the daily renewal of the Covenant of Love

My Queen, my Mother,
I give myself entirely to you,
and to show my devotion to you,
I consecrate to you this day
my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart,
my entire self without reserve.
As I am your own, my good Mother,
guard me and defend me
as your property and possession.


Our Father, Who art in Heaven,
hallowed be Thy name;
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
​but deliver us from evil.

Hail, Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.

God Our Father

I know you are my Father!

I feel secure in your protection.

I do not ask the way you lead

I blindly follow your direction.

And if you placed into my hands

My life that I myself direct it,

I then would say: O, take it back,

Your trusting child is well protected.


I know, you are my Father!

You gave your Son for our salvation,

The Sole-Begotten, Light from Light,

Who by His death brought us redemption.

Your love, O Father, has no end.

How could I doubt since you go with me!

And as you lead through thorn-filled ways,

I trust you, Father, without worry.


I know, you are my Father!

Your love gave me a caring Mother,

The Mother Three Times Wonderful,

That she may lead me to you, Father.

Like Mary, I pray trustingly:

Your faithful love cannot deceive me.

I want to do your holy will,

For I am yours, and you are mercy.


I trust your might, your kindness, Mother dear, I do believe that you are always near. Schoenstatt's great Queen, O Mother mild, I blindly trust in you and in your Child.

Good Intention

All I experience today, What I say and what I dare, All my thoughts and all my actions, What I love and what I merit, All that I direct and conquer, All my joys and all my sorrows, All that I am and have, I give to you as a gift of love. Use it so the holy stream of grace Flows richly from the shrine To win hearts for Schoenstatt. Lead there all those whom you have chosen That the work we offer to the Triune God May be fruitful.

Divine Providence

You know the way for me, you know the time. Into your hands I trustingly place mine. Your plan is perfect, born of perfect love; You know the way for me, that is enough.

Imitation of Mary

Let us walk like you through life,

Let us mirror you forever:

Strong and noble, meek and mild,

Peace and love be our endeavor.

Walk in us through our world,

Make it ready for the Lord.

Think in me, O Mother,

That my thoughts be clear and bright;

Speak in me, O Mother,

That my speech be true and right;

Work in me, O Mother,

My work is then well done;

Then holy is my labor,

My rest a holy one.

You penetrate my being,

Fill every part of me,

That all your ways and conduct

In me each one can see.


Mother Thrice Admirable,

Mother of grace,

Teach us to fight your foes,

Grant us deep faith.

Never regarding

Their number and might,

We spread your love

Over the earth’s dark night,

So that the world,

Through you transformed,

Will pay due homage to your Son.

Mother with your Child divine,

Make our country wholly yours.

Help that it will never cease

To follow you and gain God’s peace.

Mother and Child, united in love,

Will restore it in grace from above.


Holy Spirit

Holy Spirit,
You are the soul of my soul.
I humbly adore you.
Enlighten me, strengthen me,
Guide me, comfort me.
Reveal your wishes to me
As far as this is in accordance
With the will of the Eternal Father.
Show me what Eternal Love wants of me.
Show me what I should do.
Show me what I should suffer.
Show me what I should humbly and
Thoughtfully accept, bear and endure.
Holy Spirit, show me your will
And the will of the Father,
For I want my whole life to be nothing else
Then a continuous, an everlasting yes
To the wishes, to the will of God,
The Eternal Father.


Mary, In the midst of the apostles You powerfully interceded The coming of the promised Spirit, Who transformed weak men And guides the Church on the road to victory. Open our hearts for the Spirit of God That he may change the course of the world.

Oneness with Mary

O Mother, in your holy heart Deeply inscribe each name, And as a sign that we are yours Write it with blood and flame. In love and childlike gratitude Your name shall also be Deeply inscribed within my heart For time and for eternity.

Hail Mary, because of your purity

keep me pure in body and soul. Open wide to me your heart and the heart of your Son. Implore for me deep self-knowledge and grace to persevere and remain faithful until death. Give me souls; keep all else for yourself.


With heartfelt love I thank you, Mother dear, With you to guide me, I need have no fear; When all around seemed dark and drear and grey, You stood as beacon for a brighter day. Your smile illumined every wakeful hour, You did uphold me with your gentle power. Thanks, thousand thanks to you, to God shall be Now and for all eternity.

Thank you

For everything, yes for everything, let me give heartfelt thanks, clinging to you, Mother, with tender love. What would have become of us without you and without your motherly care! Because you delivered us from great need and bound us to yourself in faithful love, I will give you thanks, be grateful forevermore and dedicate myself to you with undivided love. Amen.

Childlike Trust

We believe, O Mother, in your great might, Though you be hidden as in darkest night. We believe in your victorious strength Though our desires may find no recompense. We love you, Mother, who so tenderly Love each and all of us unceasingly. We love you, too, when you do not bestow Your endless riches on us here below. Yet in your mercy and benevolence Increase our faith and childlike confidence. O let us always see your loving care That, strong in faith, we do not fear to dare But face the future sure of victory, Looking to you for guidance trustfully. Our love will free us from all earthly ties That, eager and prepared for sacrifice, We offer life and love and loyalty Serving you now and in eternity. Amen.

Prayer for the Beatification of Fr. Kentenich​

Eternal Father, in times of great need your love always sent your Church persons who by their word and example have shown your people the way to you. You endowed your priest, Father Joseph Kentenich, with the great mission for the Church of our day of proclaiming the glories of Mary. Having consecrated himself entirely to Mary, he tried to lead many people to enter into the Covenant of Love with the Mother of Grace of Schoenstatt, so that they might more easily find their way to Christ and to you, our kind and merciful Father. I beseech you, grant that Father Kentenich may soon be beatified, so that the entire People of God may see his example and hear his message, and that many may experience his powerful intercession. Hear my petition through his intercession to the praise of the Mother of Grace of Schoenstatt and to your greater honour and glory, our all-merciful God and Father. Amen.
