Pope Francis’ Act of Entrustment to Mary

Blessed Virgin Mary of Fatima,

with renewed gratitude for your motherly presence

we join in the voice of all generations that call you blessed.

We celebrate in you the great works of God,

who never tires of lowering himself in mercy over humanity,

afflicted by evil and wounded by sin, to heal and to save it.

Accept with the benevolence of a Mother

this act of entrustment

that we make in faith today, before this your image,

beloved to us.

We are certain that each one of us is precious in your eyes

and that nothing in our hearts has estranged you.

May we allow your sweet gaze to reach us

and the perpetual warmth of your smile.

Guard our life with your embrace:

bless and strengthen every desire for good;

give new life and nourishment to faith;

sustain and enlighten hope;

awaken and animate charity;

guide us all on the path to holiness.

Teach us your own special love

for the little and the poor,

for the excluded and the suffering,

for sinners and the wounded of heart:

gather all people under your protection

and give us all to your beloved Son,

our Lord Jesus. Amen.
