#PrayfortheWorld with Bishop Solis.
Bishop Solis is requesting that the faithful pray the Angelus at 12:00 noon and 6:00 pm each day, as well as the Act of Consecration of our diocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary:
The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary,
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit. (Recite the Hail Mary)
Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R. Be it done unto me according to Your Word. (Recite the Hail Mary)
And the Word was made flesh
R. And dwelt among us. (Recite the Hail Mary)
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray: Pour forth, we beseech you, O Lord, your grace into our hearts; that as we have known the incarnation of Christ, your Son by the message of an angel, so by his Passion and cross, we may be brought to the glory of his resurrection. Through the same Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
O Mary, Virgin most powerful and Mother of Mercy, we consecrate our very being, our whole life and ourselves: all that we have and all that we love to your Immaculate Heart. We consecrate to you our bodies, our hearts, and our souls, our homes, our families, our diocese and our country. We desire all that is in us and around us may share in the benefits of your motherly blessing.
We make this act of consecration and pledge to profess courageously and at all times, the truths of our holy faith, and to live our Christian life as genuine Catholics, and obedient to our Holy Father, Pope Francis, the bishops and the clergy in communion with him. We pledge to keep our baptismal promises and the commandments of God and his Church, in particular to keep holy the Lord’s Day.
We promise you, our glorious Mother of God, to devote ourselves wholeheartedly to the proclamation of the Gospel, and the spreading of devotion to your Immaculate Heart, in order to hasten and assure through the intercession of your Immaculate Heart, the coming of the kingdom of your Divine Son, in our own hearts and all the people of the world.
O Mary, Refuge of sinners and Health of the sick, you gave hope to your people in time of distress, and brought them comfort in time of sorrow. Keep us under your mantle of protection, all those who are suffering because of the coronavirus disease, and those who care for the sick and minister to their needs, as your Son implores us to do for one another.
Be with us now as a sign of salvation and hope, as we entrust ourselves to your loving care. Help us, O Mother of Divine Love, to remain steadfast in the midst of fear, suffering and death. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
