On October 11, 1954, His Holiness, Pope Pius XII, in his
Ad Caeli Reginam
, decreed and
instituted the Feast of the Queenship of the Blessed
to be celebrated throughout the world every
year on May 31. Likewise, he decreed that on that day
"there be renewed the consecration of the human race to
the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary."*

Enthrone Mary Immaculate Queen in
Your Home and Consecrate Your Family to Her
A statue or picture may be blessed; if convenient, ask a priest to
perform the ceremony, otherwise the head of the family leads the consecration.
Prepare an altar with flowers and candles, giving Our Lady an
honored place in your home where all will see and prayer often to her.
Recite together, kneeling:
An Act of Contrition;
3 Hail Mary's;
3 Glorias; and
3 times, the invocation:
"Mary Immaculate Queen: Triumph and Reign"
Act of Consecration
O Mary Immaculate Queen, glorious Queen of the Universe,
most powerful Virgin, merciful Mother of a merciful God
and refuge of sinners, we consecrate ourselves to thy Royal
and Immaculate Heart.
It is through thee that Jesus Christ our King has come into
the world to save it. It is also through thee that He is to
reign over the world.
In order to obtain this great benefit for ourselves and all
mankind, we come to thy feet to consecrate to thee our persons,
our lives, all that we are, all that we have, all that we love.
Keep us, enlighten us, dispose of us, reign over us.
May all hearts and all homes willingly proclaim thee as their
O Mary Immaculate Queen, look down upon this distressed and
suffering world. Thou know our misery and our weakness. O
Thou who art our Mother, saving us in the hour of peril, have
compassion on us in these days of great and heavy trial.
Jesus has confided to thee the treasure of His Grace, and through
Thee He wills to grant us pardon and mercy. In these hours of anguish,
therefore, thy children come to Thee as their hope.
We recognize thy Queenship and ardently desire thy triumph. We need a
Mother and a Mother’s Heart. Thou art for us the luminous dawn which
dissipates our darkness and points out the way to life. In thy clemency
obtain for us the courage and the confidence of which we have such need.
Most Holy and Adorable Trinity, Thou Who did crown with glory in Heaven
the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Savior, grant that all her children
on earth may acknowledge her as their Sovereign Queen, that all hearts, homes,
and nations may recognize her rights as Mother and as Queen. Amen
MARY IMMACULATE QUEEN
Triumph and Reign!
O Immaculate Heart of Mary,
Queen of Heaven and Earth,
and tender Mother of men,
in accordance with Thy ardent wish made known at Fatima,
I consecrate to Thy Immaculate Heart myself, my brethren,
my country and the whole human race.
Reign over us,
Most Holy Mother of God,
and teach us how to make the Heart of Thy Son,
Our Lord Jesus Christ reign
and triumph in us, as It has reigned
and triumphed in Thee.
Reign over us,
Most Blessed Virgin,
that we may be Thine in prosperity
and in adversity,
in joy and in sorrow,
in health and in sickness,
in life and in death.
O most compassionate Heart of Mary,
Queen of Heaven,
watch over our minds and hearts
and preserve them from the impurity
which Thou did lament so sorrowfully at Fatima.
Assist us in imitating You in all things,
Help us to call down upon our country
and upon the whole world the peace of God
in justice and charity.
Therefore, Most Gracious Virgin and Mother,
I hereby promise to imitate Thy virtues
by the practice of a true Christian life.
I resolve to receive Holy Communion regularly
and to offer to Thee five decades of the Rosary each day,
together with my sacrifices,
in the spirit of reparation and penance. Amen
