When I think of the innumerable benefits received from this dear Mother, I am ashamed of myself, for I have never sufficiently appreciated her heart and her hand which have bestowed these benefits upon me with so much love.
-St. Pio of Pietrelcina
Prayer of Consecration to Mary
O my Queen and Mother, I give myself entirely to you. To show my devotion to you I consecrate to you this day my eyes, ears, mouth, heart, and whole being without reserve.
Therefore, good Mother, since I am your own, keep me and guard me as your proper and possession.
