Heal our unbelieving and unconverted hearts and lead us to Your Sacred Heart with love. Unite us as a family and remove all stain of sinfulness from our souls. Help us to be a prayerful and loving family, so that through our example we may lead other souls to Your Most Sacred Heart.

We give You our hearts, dearest Jesus, and consecrate our family through the fourth generation. Through the prayers of our dearest Mother Mary, may we live this consecration every day of our lives. Amen.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have pity on us.

Suggestion is to read together as a family at the same time each week
